Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., hammered Secretary of State John Kerry Wednesday, telling the former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee the administration is exercising the worst judgement possible in handling the threat posed by ISIS.

Obama Administration Forces New Gun Buyers to Disclose Race and Ethnicity
  • Mon, September 22, 2014

Then a buyer must check their race: Indian, asian, black, pacific islander or white.

  • Mon, September 22, 2014

Mitch McConnell is hardly a lovable guy. The Republican leader in the U.S. Senate has a dour public persona and many of his constituents don't view him as a "real Kentuckian," according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll that underscores what his election campaign already knows - McConnell has an image problem. While other politicians might be deterred by polls showing how unpopular they are in their home state, McConnell has risen to the challenge as he seeks a sixth term in what is perhaps his toughest re-election battle in a 30-year Senate career.
