The move by the administration is the latest in its attempt to scale back the social safety net for low-income Americans.

Because to believe that William Taylor, George Kent and Marie Yovanovitch are lying, you must believe that there is such disdain for the president among our … [Read more...] about Editorial: All evidence points to a president who compromised American foreign policy objectives for political goals

Some middle school students in Iowa learned what they hope and dream for isn't that different from what a classmate living with cerebral palsy, autism and other disorders wants: to be one of the team and compete in a wrestling meet. The moment 14-year-old Lucas Lacina got the pin has been shared around the world in ESPN video, and with it messages in compassion and empathy, sportsmanship, and inclusion.
