    Judge Extends Restraining Order Against Anti-Abortion Group

    WASHINGTON — A federal judge in California has extended a restraining order against an anti-abortion group known for its Planned Parenthood videos after it attempted to release secretly-recorded footage of a different abortion group. The Center for Medical Progress recorded meetings of the National Abortion Federation, an international organization of abortion providers, in 2014 and 2015. But District Judge William H. Orrick III in San Francisco, who first barred the release of the footage last July, said Friday that CMP […]

    North Korea Moves Up Rocket Launch Window

    SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea has moved up the launch window for a rocket by one day, the South Korean Defense Ministry said Saturday. The new window, which was also narrowed, is February 7-14; the old window was February 8-25. The areas where debris would fall remain unchanged. The announcement comes just days after the reclusive country’s initial launch plans came to light, which drew condemnation from South Korea and Japan. And it means blastoff could come moments after […]

    5 Things to Watch in the Republican Debate

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — Donald Trump is back on the stage, and under pressure, as Republicans meet for their final debate before Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. The real estate mogul, knocked down by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Iowa, will attempt to regain his footing in a debate set for 8 p.m. ET Saturday on ABC. But Trump isn’t the only candidate under pressure. Three governors whose hopes of breaking out of the second tier are riding on their results […]

  • Former first lady Barbara Bush is urging voters in both a new video and in a hand-written letter to vote for her second-eldest son, making her first public appearance on behalf of his campaign. While Barbara Bush has so far lent her name to fundraising letters and appeared at donor retreats, as well as Jeb Bush's announcement speech last summer, she has yet to have a more public presence on the campaign. In the video obtained by CNN, she praises her son for being a "good father" with a "big" heart and makes what could be interpreted as a subtle dig at the current GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump.

    Barbara Bush on Donald Trump: ‘I’m sick of him’

    CONCORD, New Hampshire — Jeb Bush has suggested in the past that his blunt, outspoken, 90-year-old mother has strong opinions about Donald Trump. Sitting next to the former first lady in a joint interview with CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel, Bush cautioned his mom when she was asked what she really thinks about the real estate titan. “Be careful,” Bush murmured to his mom. Barbara Bush initially declined to show her true feelings about Trump, the man who’s been tearing […]

    Twitter Goes To War Against ISIS

    NEW YORK — Twitter has significantly ramped up its anti-ISIS efforts by shutting down thousands of terrorists’ accounts and adding staff to monitor terrorist activity on its network. The social media company said in a blog post Friday that it has suspended 125,000 accounts over the past seven months for threatening or promoting terrorist acts. Most of the people behind the accounts were affiliated with or supported ISIS, Twitter said. ISIS recruiters have successfully used Twitter to lure disillusioned people […]

    Need a ‘Simpsons’ Quote? Search Engine at Your Service

    You may want to make it your “Homer page.” Thanks to the diligent work of some “Simpsons” obsessives, there’s now a search engine for every quote from the show featuring America’s favorite TV family. The engine, named Frinkiac after “Simpsons” scientist Professor Frink, is the brainchild of Sean Schulte, Paul Kehrer and Allie Young. “We had the idea several years ago when we were quoting ‘The Simpsons’ at each other all day long, and it was surprisingly difficult to find […]

    Obama Fights for Credit As Unemployment Rate Hits New Low

    The U.S. unemployment rate dropped Friday to its lowest rate since February 2008 — and President Barack Obama wants you to know about it. Making a last-minute appearance in the White House briefing room, Obama made another bid to tout the country’s economic progress under his watch, hoping to pierce the withering fiscal assessments being issued by Republican presidential candidates. “The United States of America right now has the strongest, most durable economy in the world,” Obama said. “I know […]

    Democratic Debate: 6 Takeaways

    DURHAM, New Hampshire  — No more fake niceties. No more patience. No more Martin O’Malley to get in the way. Hillary Clinton re-launched her campaign Thursday night, going directly after Bernie Sanders regarding his attacks on her record, stressing her foreign policy experience, and making the case to Democrats that it’s time to stop dreaming and get real. Sanders didn’t hold back either, continuing to rail against the political establishment and campaign finance system. And he hit Clinton again on […]

    Whooping Cough Protection Fades Fast After Tdap Booster, Study Finds

    A booster vaccine for whooping cough, which many states require for middle school-aged children, does not provide long-lasting protection, a study finds. The Tdap booster is meant to protect against pertussis, or whooping cough, tetanus and diphtheria. The study found it protected about 69% of adolescents against whooping cough in the first year after vaccination, but protection dropped to 57% of adolescents in the second year, then 25% and 9% in the third and fourth years after vaccination, respectively. Researchers […]

    Debate: Hillary Clinton Accuses Bernie Sanders of ‘Artful Smear’

    Hillary Clinton accused Bernie Sanders on Thursday of engaging in an “artful smear” by attacking her progressive credentials because of the money she’s received from Wall Street. “If you have something to say, say it,” Clinton said in a Democratic debate on MSNBC. That was one of many heated exchanges during the first face-to-face clash between Clinton and Sanders since the Iowa caucuses. The two quickly launched into a passionate exchange on health care minutes into their debate in New […]

    Ben Jealous, the former head of the NAACP, will endorse Bernie Sanders, a source familiar with the campaign told CNN.

Jealous, 43, is set to appear with Sanders in New Hampshire ahead of the February 9 primary to announce his support. Elected to the NAACP post in […]
