One of the victims were in critical condition.

    Former governor Jeb Bush said that Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk jailed for contempt of court after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, doesn’t have the authority to defy the courts. “She is sworn to uphold the law, and it seems to me that there ought to be common ground, there ought to be big enough space for her to act on her conscience and — now that the law is the law of the land — for a gay couple to be married in whatever jurisdiction that is,” Bush told reporters in New Hampshire. Davis’s case...

    While Kentucky clerk Kim Davis continues to sit in jail after refusing to give out marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Mike Huckabee plans to stand up for her. The former Arkansas governor announced Thursday that he will be heading up a "liberty rally" next Tuesday for the jailed county clerk in Kentucky. According to his campaign, Huckabee will be joined by Matt Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, who is representing Davis in court. "This is a reckless, appalling, out-of-control decision that undermines the Constitution of the United States and our fundamental right to religious liberty," Huckabee said...

    Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, a Democrat, will stay in custody. It was a circus in Ashland today, as media, and protesters on both sides of the Kim Davis controversy came nose-to-nose outside the courthouse. Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis appeared before U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning at 11:00 this morning, Bunning had her taken into custody finding her in contempt for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. Bunning told Davis that she would remain in jail until she complied with his order. Davis said “thank you” and was taken from the courtroom by a U.S....

    Donald Trump has reached a new high in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. According to a Monmouth University survey released on Thursday, Trump takes 30 percent support nationally, a four-point gain over the same survey from before the first GOP debate. Ben Carson is a distant second place in the poll, taking 18 percent support. The retired neurosurgeon has risen sharply in the polls over the past month. He was at only 5 percent support in the same poll from early August. The rest of the Republican field isn’t even in the same ballpark. Former Florida Gov. Jeb...

    As is now well-known, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis stopped issuing marriage licenses after the Supreme Court ruled in June that states are required to recognize same-sex nuptials. But the fury aimed at Davis has been disproportionate to the actual facts of the situation, and shows galling – and revealing – inconsistency on the part of her critics. In particular, where was the outcry when Attorney General and later Governor of California, Jerry Brown, refused to mount a defense of gay-marriage ban Proposition 8? Representing the state in court was at the center of his job. Yet he put his personal...

Appearing on the Hugh Hewitt show, Fiorina said that even though she disagrees with the Supreme Court’s ruling on same sex marriage, as a paid government employee the Rowan County clerk, Kim Davis — coincidentally an elected Democrat, must “execute the government’s will.” “I think in this particular case this woman now needs to make a decision of conscience.

Carly says the clerk needs to do the government’s will and issue the licenses or quit and move to another job where religious liberty is more paramount. She says it inappropriate for this clerk to practice civil disobedience as a government employee. Listen:

For them, the story is one of religious bias from the hateful right standing in the way of human happiness. The other story is receiving less national attention.

"He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle," he added. According to dictionary.com, "louche" means "dubious, shady, disreputable."

David Petraeus for allegedly providing classified information to a civilian author and journalist with whom he allegedly had an affair. Meanwhile, another controversy is waiting to boil over within the Obama administration: a sex scandal involving the CIA’s Petraeus. The timing is—intriguing. Only after the Benghazi attacks, as Petraeus’s loyalty to the administration falls into question, does everything turn sour for the spy chief. In the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attacks, Petraeus first draws ire from some administration colleagues for not reading from...

      A revelation coming out of Hillary Clinton's emails was her keen interest in the Presidential ambitions of one General David Petraeus: "Clemons had dinner this week with Petraeus, who freely talked about running for president," Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "Will he write about Petraeus?" Clinton wrote back five minutes later. Moments later, Blumenthal sent Clinton Clemons' post mentioning the off-the-record dinner and discussing the relative political merits of Petraeus, Vice President Joe Biden and Clinton herself. "Clemons... told me more detail about [Petraeus'] attitude and interest," Blumenthal said, adding a couple of nuggets. Within four months someone decided to...

    EXCLUSIVE: At least four classified Hillary Clinton emails had their markings changed to a category that shields the content from Congress and the public, Fox News has learned, in what State Department whistleblowers believed to be an effort to hide the true extent of classified information on the former secretary of state’s server. The changes, which came to light after the first tranche of 296 Benghazi emails was released in May, was confirmed by two sources -- one congressional, the other intelligence. The four emails originally were marked classified after a review by career officials at the State Department. But...

George Mitchell, then Clinton’s special envoy for Middle East peace. “Pls use this for reply.”Mitchell responded with details of discussions with Italian foreign minister Franco Frattini. Most of the contents of the email, released by the State Department on Monday night, are redacted pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act exemption designed...

    Solomon reports part of concern about the information being unsecured on Clinton’s home server is that it could have been hacked by the North Koreans–who would then know more about U.S. spying capabilities. Solomon reports the information was likely summarized from a secure site and sent in unclassified systems up the chain to Clinton. “One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites. “Multiple intelligence sources...
