    ABC News has declared Democratic Sen. Al Franken beat out Republican Mike McFadden for a seat in the U.S. Senate. Franken's big advantages in money and name recognition made him the favorite against McFadden. The former "Saturday Night Live" star was seen as a big target for Republicans after he won in 2008 by recount, but this cycle's race never appeared close and Republican-aligned groups invested their millions elsewhere.

    A gunman in Saudi Arabia opened fire Tuesday on two American defense contractors, killing one and wounding the other before being arrested in a shootout with police, U.S. and Saudi officials said. One individual familiar with the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity in advance of an official Saudi statement, said the attack was a workplace dispute related to the firing of the alleged shooter and was not terrorism-related. The identities of the Americans and suspected attacker were not immediately released, but the State Department said the Americans worked for Vinnell Arabia, a U.S.-based contractor with deep ties in...

    The integrity of the Internet could be at risk if Congress does not act to rein in the National Security Agency, Google head Eric Schmidt warned on Wednesday. Speaking alongside other tech executives and Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) at a Silicon Valley event, Schmidt said the revelations about U.S. surveillance could prompt countries to wall off their networks. “The simplest outcome: We’re going to end up breaking the Internet,” Schmidt said, “because what’s going to happen is governments will do bad laws of one kind or another, and eventually what’s going to happen is: ‘We’re going to have our own...

    Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce Thursday that he is resigning from the Obama administration, a Justice Department official confirmed to Fox News. The decision would cap a tumultuous six-year term for the nation's top law enforcement official. Holder is one of the few Cabinet officials to have stayed on since the beginning of the Obama presidency. The Justice official said Holder has agreed to remain on the job until his successor is confirmed. According to the official, Holder has discussed his plans with Obama on "multiple occasions" in recent months. "[He] finalized those plans in an hour-long conversation...

    Eric Holder Jr., the nation's first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon...

On Tuesday, Politico provided some background on Phelps' political history, most of which saw him endorsing Democrat candidates and running for office a number of times as a Democrat. In the 1990's, Phelps ran in three Kansas Democratic primaries for Governor in 1990, 1994, and 1998, receiving only 15% of the vote. He also ran for Senator in 1992, receiving 31% of the vote, and for mayor of Topeka in 1993 and 1997....

    Like most of us, I have measured and evaluated the idea that Obama and his communist backers were taking over (I even spent a goodly amount of money on arms and ammo). The abject failure of Obamacare was a pretty clear indicator that the communists who were planning to take over were either incompetent or completely unprepared for such takeover. I believe that even those who believed Obamacare was meant to fail as a step toward a single payer system were mistaken. The failure of Obamacare is a failure of government. Americans are laughing...and they will soon be angry. I...

    President Obama is considering a strike on Syrian military targets involving sea-launched cruise missiles or possibly long-range bombers that would last no more than two days, according to senior administration officials and reported by Karen DeYoung and Anne Gearan of The Washington Post. Reuters reports that the West has told the opposition to expect a strike "within days." The limited strike would seemingly be a response to allegations that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its own people before dawn on August 21. Hundreds were killed and thousands suffered "neurotoxic symptoms." The design of the potential attack implies sending...

    Late Breaking Zimmerman Trial News Many of you may not know of the recent turn of events that occurred after the trial today. It is not widely reported at this point but the prosecution may have hit upon a face saving charge they believe they can prove. It’s beginning to look like the jaywalking charges may stick. The allegation is that when Zimmerman left his car he failed to cross the street at the prescribed pedestrian crossing placed there for his safety. There is a rumor, not widely distributed I should add, that the prosecution has an eyewitness that is...

    Over the last several months, it has become pretty clear that when it comes to ratings, MSNBC struggles during breaking news events, while CNN and Fox both receive boosts. In an interview with the New York Times this morning, MSNBC chief Phil Griffin essentially conceded the “breaking news” mantle to the other networks, telling viewers that his network is not focused on that sort of coverage. In what seems like a stunning admission, Griffin said: “We’re not the place for that,” he said of breaking news. “Our brand is not that.” Instead, he explained, MSNBC’s bread and butter is progressive...

    The polarizing debate over whether Boy Scouts of America should allow gay members could culminate with a vote on a new policy Wednesday. But no matter which way the vote goes, activists on both sides aren't going to be satisfied. The controversy pits leaders of religious groups that sponsor about 1 million Boy Scouts against activists who want the organization to end its ban on openly gay Scouts and Scout leaders. Neither side is happy with BSA's proposal to let local troops decide if they want to allow gay members.
