Biden jokes about 2020 bid WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden is joking about his own talk about seeking the presidency in 2020. On his way into a meeting with House Democrats on Tuesday, Biden said "I'm going to announce right now" in response to shouted questions about whether he should be taken seriously about running again. The 74-year-old vice president said Monday night that he would run, a comment he did walk back, but just a bit. Biden said, "I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening." Biden will turn 78 shortly after the 2020 election. Ronald Reagan was a few days short of 78 when he left office in January 1989, making him the oldest person to serve as president. The vice president decided to not seek the ...

FDA admits antibacterial soap does not fight illness any better than soap and water The FDA's latest ruling on antibacterial soap has finally confirmed what many people have suspected for quite some time: They aren't any better at killing bacteria than conventional soap.Many people choose to purchase soaps and body washes that bear the "antibacterial" claim, under the false belief that these products will somehow be better for their families. But, the truth is that these products offer no benefits, and may actually increase your risk of being infected by an antibiotic-resistant strain of bacteria.The first antibacterial soap was presented by the Dial corporation in the 1940s. It contained an ingredient known as hexachlorophene – a chemical never fully established as a germicidal agent. In the 1970s, Dial was ordered to stop using this chemical because it was...

Why the establishment Democrat party must be DISMANTLED (and how Donald Trump just did ... None of us wants a one-party state for the simple reason that the centralization of power into the hands of the few inevitably leads to corruption. Yet that monopoly on power is precisely what the Clinton-run Democrat party sought by any means necessary: lying, cheating, rigging, stealing, threatening and even murdering people into silence. (Funny how many dead Democrats used to be close to the Clintons, isn't it?)To its own demise, the criminal Clinton cartel (Mills, Lynch, Abedin, Podesta, etc.) sought absolute power and the complete dissolution of the Republican party. But their quest for power was so deeply rooted in contempt for democracy itself that it spectacularly backfired, leaving the Democrats as a leaderless band of sobbing, lost souls wandering aimlessly through...

Navigator for Night Witches answered Stalin’s call Obituary IRINA RAKOBOLSKAYA Irina Rabobolskaya, member of Soviet World War II flying corps known as the Night Witches. Photo: supplied Pilot, professor 22-12-1919 – 22-9-2016 Irina Rakobolskaya, who has died aged 96, was a member of an elite corps of Soviet women – known as the "Night Witches" – who fought in the air war against Germany from 1941 to 1945. Unlike Soviet men, women were not formally conscripted into the armed forces. They were volunteers. But the haemorrhaging of the Red Army after the routs of 1941 saw mass campaigns to induct women into the military. They were to play an essential role. More than 8000 women fought in the charnel house of Stalingrad. In late 1941 Stalin signed an order to establish three all-women air force units to be grouped into separate ...

A-League war of words between John van 't Schip and 'whinger' John Aloisi Melbourne City boss John van 't Schip has hit back at claims by his predecessor and now Brisbane coach John Aloisi that his team is aggressive and seeks to intimidate opponents and referees in matches. The Dutchman, speaking before City host Roar in a high-profile Saturday night clash at AAMI Park, accused his counterpart of being a "childish whinger" who should worry more about his own team, which, he said, is now a counter-attacking defensive side who favoured "parking the bus". ''Always having a go'': Brisbane coach John Aloisi Photo: Getty Images Aloisi, whose Brisbane team beat City 1-0 in a round-five game at Suncorp Stadium, attacked City's up-and-at-them style in comments he made on the Fox Sports website on Thursday.
