The Senate has approved a defense budget that would also require women to register for the draft. The new rules would apply to any woman who turns 18 on or after January 1, 2018. The key opponents to drafting women were conservative Republicans, including your old friend, botched Madam Tussauds exhibit Ted Cruz.

The trailer for the new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is out today, and it reveals President Barack Obama will drive around with Jerry Seinfeld in a baby blue 1963 Corvette Sting Ray on the White House lawn. Will the president get to rip burnouts in the ‘vette? Is he secretly a die-hard Jalop? We have so…
The Empire is apparently alive and well. Today, a pair of Storm Troopers and R2D2 accompanied White House spokesman Josh Earnest on stage at the White House Press Briefing Room.
It was just a matter of time before Russia’s new expeditionary pocket air force in Syria began its bombing operations. Over the last few weeks Russian drones have been flying missions out of Latakia Air Base looking for targets. Now the first Russian shots have been fired in what could be a very long battle to secure…
President Obama and Vladimir Putin met today at the United Nations. Although they have had small and often tense asides at different diplomatic events over the past year and a half, this was the first time they formally had face time behind closed doors since Russia invaded Crimea.
The Supreme Court voted Monday that the EPA cannot stop power plants from releasing hazardous chemicals without first proving that the clean air is worth more than the companies would have to spend to stop polluting.
Some 200 military ground vehicles, 140 aircraft and 16,500 troops participated in the 70th anniversary of Victory Day parade held in Moscow’s Red Square today. Highlights included Russia’s new “Armata” family of armor and China’s President Xi Jinping standing alongside Putin for the whole affair.
As President Obama gears up to deliver the State of the Union address for the sixth time tonight, now's as good a time as any to reflect on the mandates, promises and calls to action from his previous speeches. Here's one: that call from 2011 to have 1 million electric cars on the road by 2015.
It is well known that the leaders of the two nations that collectively posses the vast majority of nuclear weapons on planet earth have an icy relationship at best. This was awkwardly apparent at this week's Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in China. Here are some of the best pictures of this odd couple's…
President Obama was talking transportation today, visiting the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center in McLean, VA and then giving a speech on our crumbling infrastructure. None of that matters because here's a shot of him driving down a virtual highway in a Saturn L-Series. And it needs a caption.
Over a year after 138,469 people signed a petition on the White House's "We The People" site to allow Tesla to sell its cars directly to consumers, the Obama administration has an answer: Nope.
The DoD will be sending additional fighters to the Baltics, and possibly Poland, to beef up the NATO air policing roles along Russia's border with greater Europe.
This Benz probably isn't the commander-in-chief's covert set of wheels, but it's a pretty smooth tribute to the man nonetheless. But we have one suggestion: For the Obama Edition, perhaps a bigger Benz would be a more fitting car to name after the leader of the free world? Maybe a G-wagen? (Hat tip to Ilya!)
It seems that today we, as a country, will be inaugurating a President. It's the same President we had before, so it should go pretty easily, seeing as how he already has all his stuff in the White House and all the radios preset with his chosen stations. Still, it's a big deal, since we only do this once every leap…
It's no secret that President Barack Obama and his Washington, D.C. neighbors are tight. With a population that's more than 50 percent black and a median age of 33, the President's more or less liberal reputation sits cozily within the city's demographics.
Back in 2009, Barack Obama made a gutsy move at the beginning of his presidency. He used his political capital on an $82 billion gamble to put General Motors and Chrysler through bankruptcy, and deal with a bunch of collateral issues surrounding the auto industry.
Now that last week's Republican National Convention is over, it's time for the Democrats to take center stage and nominate President Obama — or an ultra top secret "Mystery Candidate X" — for the presidency.
Today, President Obama was in Iowa, talking about his energy policies, including wind power. He reminded the crowd that Republican candidate Mitt Romney said of wind power "You can't drive a car with a windmill on it," and then Obama used that to get in a little zinger, saying "I don't know if he's actually tried…
