Former secretary of state John Kerry endorsed Joe Biden for President on Thursday, citing Biden's performance serving as vice president in the Obama administration as proof that he has what it takes to defeat President Trump."The world is broken," Kerry told The Washington Post. "Our politics are broken. The country faces extraordinary challenges. And I believe very deeply that Joe Biden's character, his ability to persevere, his decency and the experiences that he brings to the table are critical to the moment.

Evan Vucci/AP/ShutterstockRudy Giuliani didn't just push the Ukrainian government to announce investigations that would boost President Donald Trump's political prospects. The former New York mayor-who is not part of the U.S. government-also raised concerns to Ukrainian officials about a senior aide to President Volodymyr Zelensky, according to American and Ukrainian sources familiar with his comments. That aide, Andriy Bohdan, previously worked for an oligarch who had sparred with Giuliani's then-allies Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman. Giuliani's comments led Ukrainian officials to believe he was pushing for the aide's ouster. A Zelensky administration official familiar with the discussions...

Global temperatures could rise sharply this century with "wide-ranging and destructive" consequences after greenhouse gas emissions hit record levels last year, international climate experts warned on Tuesday. The head of the World Meteorological Organization said global temperatures could rise by 3-5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels this century - more than three times agreed limits - if nothing is done to stop rising emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions surged to a record level last year, the United Nations said in its "Emissions Gap Report", released ahead of U.N. climate talks in Madrid next week aimed at spurring world leaders to limit climate change.
She made him wait for her while she chatted with Thailand's king and queen. Sister Ana Rosa Sivori has taken something of a star turn during her second cousin's visit to Thailand, assuming an unprecedented role for a woman as papal whisperer and translator, who doesn't seem fazed that her charge is Pope Francis. Not so Sivori, who treats Francis with the respect owed a pope but nevertheless displays the confidence of a nun who has spent more than a half-century ministering to Thailand's faithful.
At least eight protesters who had been holding out at a trashed Hong Kong university surrendered early on Friday, while others searched for escape routes past riot police who surrounded the campus but said there was no deadline for ending the standoff. The siege at the Polytechnic University on the Kowloon peninsula appeared to be nearing an end with the number of protesters dwindling to a few dozen, days after some of the worst violence since anti-government demonstrations escalated in June. Hong Kong's new police chief, Chris Tang, who took up the post this week, urged those remaining inside to come out.
Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have spent the vast majority of their impeachment hearings trying to persuade voters that bureaucrats believe Donald Trump is impulsive, self-serving, and misguided -- all of which is unsurprising, and completely irrelevant to the matter at hand.Quite often, in fact, the most breathless coverage of these tedious hearings has absolutely nothing to do with the allegedly impeachable offenses of quid pro quo or "bribery" -- or whatever focus group-tested terminology Democrats are deploying today. Take the newest blockbuster witness, Fiona Hill, a Russia expert whose testimony nearly every outlet promised would be "explosive." She "lashes Rs for siding w...
