The respected GOP senator failed to endorse candidate Trump in life and got tardy recognition from President Trump in death.
The Indiana Republican championed nuclear nonproliferation during his 36 years in the Senate.
I also don't think it's fair to call Newsweek "liberal," especially without any proof to back it up. It's not easy to measure
You can't always get what you want. (That's why it's called "negotiation"...)
Emails released on July 31 by the U.S. State Department reveal more about the origins of energy reform efforts in Mexico. The State Department released them as part of the once-a-month rolling release schedule for emails generated by former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, now a Democratic presidential candidate.
Although both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have introduced bills and proposals about how best to proceed, we live in an era where money and politics take precedence and the question of doing what is "in the best interest of children" is far too often forgotten or ignored. That must end.
A year and a half ago I discovered that the Koch brothers are my brothers. I learned about our extraordinary kinship through a brief article, which mentioned that Charles Koch, and his younger twin brothers David and William, were members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at MIT.
Roberts appeared vulnerable earlier this year after questions were raised about his residency in Kansas, similar to what helped defeat veteran Sen. Richard Lugar two years ago.
That's the one question the movie left me with. I know you couldn't take them in, but they were left in a violent situation
The leader of an audacious tea party plan in Kentucky to oust Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) believes unknown forces orchestrated the 2008 financial collapse to give Barack Obama the presidency.
Unbridled Liberty plans to draw in and organize tea party activists from surrounding states -- Fettig lives in Indiana -- and

"We know corruption is killing more kids than TB, AIDS, and malaria put together. There is a vaccine and it's called transparency."
Securing and destroying Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles will not be easy, risk-free or cheap -- especially if the violence has not completely dissipated.
If I ever run into Charles (MIT 1957) or David (MIT 1962) at one of their regular Palm Springs get-togethers for the ultra-conservative wing of the .001 percent, I'll make sure to give them the secret handshake, quietly mutter "Phi Kai Phi" and sing a few refrains of one of the fraternity's drinking songs.
One by one, they have fallen. Bob Bennett in Utah. Richard Lugar in Indiana. Mike Castle in Delaware. Longtime pols, all
A funny thing happened at the Senate Armed Services Committee vote on Chuck Hagel, this week. Senator Ted Cruz, who is quickly making a name for himself as a modern-day Joe McCarthy, turned a normal committee vote into his own personal circus, making outlandish smear after outlandish smear against Chuck Hagel that earned the ire not just of senators in the room, but Capitol Hill newspapers, national media, and even his home state newspaper. Thing of it is, Cruz knows very well who his base is: The increasingly shrill far right, which want to see vicious opposition to anything President Obama says, does, or proposes.
