|Federal judge orders Kentucky clerk and her staff to court||AP source: Fred Jackson traveling to meet Seahawks (Yahoo Sports)|
Kim Davis invokes her religious beliefs and "God's authority" — this time in defiance of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling against her.
After being released by the Buffalo Bills, running Fred Jackson is looking for an opportunity to reunite with former teammate Marshawn Lynch in Seattle. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Jackson was traveling to Seattle to meet with the Seahawks in a bid to sign with the team.

|This senator is the GOP's anti-Trump||Latest on US Open: Isner dominant in 1st-round victory (Yahoo Sports)|
Jeff Flake still believes politics is "a noble profession" — a view that makes him an anomaly in 2015
American John Isner got off to an impressive start at the U.S. Open, beating Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 in the first round Tuesday. The 13th-seeded Isner never faced a break point in winning in a swift 1 hour, 43 minutes against the 81st-ranked Jaziri. Isner had 24 aces and 54 winners.
|Clerk defies U.S. high court, denies gay marriage licenses||Los Angeles vote clears way for mayor to seek Olympic deal (Yahoo Sports)|
Citing her religious objections, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has refused to issue any marriage licenses since the Supreme Court in June ruled that same-sex couples had the right to marry under the U.S. Constitution. On Monday the same court rejected Davis' request for an emergency order allowing her to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples while she appeals a federal judge's order requiring her to issue them. Eight people filed a federal lawsuit against Davis in July challenging her office's policy of not issuing marriage licenses to any couples – gay or straight.
|The Los Angeles City Council cleared the way Tuesday for Mayor Eric Garcetti to strike agreements for a 2024 Olympics bid, putting the city on the verge of becoming the U.S. contender after Boston's awkward collapse. With the 15-0 vote, the U.S. Olympic Committee is expected to announce shortly that Los Angeles is the replacement candidate for 2024, about a month after Boston was dropped from contention amid shaky public support and questions about taxpayer spending and liability. Garcetti has said Los Angeles, home to the Olympics in 1932 and 1984, would stage games that are both spectacular and profitable.|
|White supremacist should die for three Kansas murders, prosecutor argues||No settlement: Goodell, Brady await 'Deflategate' ruling (Yahoo Sports)|
A prosecutor urged a jury on Tuesday to give a Missouri white supremacist he called a "remorseless killer" a death sentence for murdering three people, including a boy, he thought were Jewish outside two Jewish centers in Kansas last year. Frazier Glenn Cross, 74, was convicted Monday of capital murder for the April 2014 shooting spree that left a man and his grandson dead in a Jewish community center parking lot along with a woman visiting a nearby retirement home. Cross, a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan, said during his trial that he wanted to kill as many Jews as possible because he believes they are destroying the white gentile race.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady attended last-minute settlement talks between the NFL and its players union Monday before a judge announced he would decide the dispute over deflated footballs with a ruling in a day or two. Everyone involved ''tried quite hard'' to reach a deal in the controversy that has hung over professional football since New England easily won the AFC title game in January, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman said in federal court in Manhattan.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
