Though their names have become American legend, this group of young rebels didn’t start off as noble patriots in powdered wigs. They were a new American generation of young men from...

    Militants affiliated with the Islamic State group have posted an online warning that the "countdown has begun" for the group to kill a pair of Japanese hostages. The posting which appeared Friday shows a clock counting down to zero along with gruesome images of other hostages who have been beheaded by the Islamic State group. The militant group gave Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a 72-hour deadline — which expired Friday — to pay a $200 million ransom for the two hostages.

Rand Paul in which King told the DREAMers not to import more lawlessness, DREAMers vowed to have more of such confrontations.

    The GOP establishment can’t make Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel go away. On Friday, McDaniel will be announcing—he told Breitbart News exclusively—a new Political Action Committee (PAC) designed to help conservatives across Mississippi, and the nation, get elected to political office, replacing GOP establishment politicians. The PAC, titled the United Conservatives Fund will focus on “electing conservatives and holding Republicans accountable while messaging conservatism in a way that secures conservatives get a chance to be elected even over some of those in the establishment,” McDaniel tells Breitbart.

    Yemen faced a dangerous power vacuum Friday after its president announced his resignation over a deadly standoff with Shiite militia controlling the capital and lawmakers called an emergency weekend session. President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi, a key US ally in the fight against Al-Qaeda, said late Thursday that he could no longer stay in office as the country was in "total deadlock". Prime Minister Khalid Bahah also tendered his resignation, saying he did want to be part of the collapse of the country. The fall of Hadi's Western-backed government would raise fears of complete chaos engulfing Yemen, strategically located next to...

    The longtime king of Saudi Arabia, Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, passed away on Friday. But the death of the 90-year-old monarch didn’t seem to come as much of a shock to the Saudi establishment. When royal officials acknowledged Abdullah’s death, it was also revealed that Crown Prince Salman would succeed his brother. For the time being, the succession process seemed to have preserved stability in the Saudi Kingdom. Within hours, traders who speculated that the new king may take a critical look at Saudi policies, which have allowed crude prices to collapse in recent months, created a rally in the oil...

    SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California high school basketball coach has been suspended and faces accusations of mercilessly running up the score after his team won a game 161-2, one of the most lopsided scores in state history. Arroyo Valley High girls' coach Michael Anderson was suspended for two games after the victory last week against Bloomington High. Anderson said that he wasn't trying to run up the score or embarrass the opposition. His team had won four previous games by at least 70 points, and Bloomington had already lost a game by 91.

    Liberal media outlets will host six of the nine 2016 GOP presidential debates that the Republican National Committee (RNC) will sanction. On Friday, the RNC announced the nine sanctioned debates from August 2015 through March 1, 2016 with three more that are pending. Though there is a pending “Conservative Media Debate,” conservative new media outlets and talk radio did not receive a sanctioned debate. RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer has previously said that conservative media outlets can often hold Republican candidates more to account than mainstream media outlets. Fox News outlets will host three of the sanctioned debates while CNN,...

    A Senate Democratic aide says Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is likely to return to the Senate next week after missing the first two weeks of business due to injuries sustained in a fall at his new home in Nevada. Reid is suffering from broken facial bones and ribs after slamming into a counter when a piece of exercise equipment broke. He also sustained a concussion. The aide said Reid won't return without the permission of his doctors. The 75-year-old Democrat said in a radio interview this week that the injuries won't prevent him from running for a sixth term...

That's all well and good, but here's a thought...kick the Muslims out of your country and your problems will be solved. The French are finally seeing what multiculturalism and political correctness are really all about. They have allowed invaders to legally immigrate to their country, set-up their own separate system of government, and even go so far as to allow "infidel free zones" where only Muslims are allowed to be. How stupid is that?...

    Colleen Hufford is the victim of the Muslim Jihad in Oklahoma. You don’t hear any mention of Colleen Hufford’s name in the media. Maybe as equally disgusting as the beheading is that around 30 to 40 or so Muslims in Oklahoma celebrated the beheading by shouting ‘Praise Allah’ and surrounding Oklahoma cops after a press conference on the beheading. According to Gateway Pundit and the following tweets, Muslims also surrounded cops and read passages from the Quran outloud. Yes, Muslims had the nerve to celebrate this, even in Oklahoma.

Creating a new high-level safety position was a key recommendation of a months-long internal investigation into the mishandling of anthrax and bird flu in CDC labs this past summer, according to an internal CDC memo obtained by Reuters. Those incidents called into question safety practices at more than 1,000 laboratory and support facilities across the CDC's sprawling network of scientists.

    TAMPA — Tuesday afternoon’s smash-and-grab robbery - three men broke a jewelry case and ran off with its contents - was typical in many ways, but with two important distinctions: ♦ It happened at the International Plaza, a popular, high-end mall in Tampa that was crowded with post-Christmas shoppers, and ♦ When one of the men used a small sledgehammer to break open the jewelry case, the breaking glass sounded like gunshots. Those were important distinctions. The fear that a gunman was on the loose in International Plaza caused the mall to shut down.

It wants things so much the same, it's seeking blood guarantees, like the old Euro aristocracies that sealed military alliances with marriages. It's pathetic, and if Bush-Clinton turns out to be the general election menu, it's going to make kleptocratic paradises like the Soviet Union or the PRC look like vibrant democracies in comparison.

For the first time since the 1870’s – that would be during the administration of President Ulysses S Grant – The United States is no longer the worlds largest economy. “Hold on to your hats, America,” reports Brett Arends of MarketWatch in his online article, “And throw away that big fat Styrofoam finger while you’re at it.” Now I don’t know anything about Brett Arends politics, but throwing away that big fat Styrofoam finger –...

    In 1825 Welsh industrialist, Robert Owen, purchased a religious community on the frontier in Indiana, named Harmony. He renamed the village, New Harmony, and implemented a wide range of social experiments that seemed to hark of John Lennon’s 1971 song, “Imagine.” Things did not go as planned. The popular understanding of communism among North Americans is that its concept began with the writings of Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx then appeared in an extreme form with the advent of 1918 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. In fact, while living in England, Engels attended a Socialist “church” founded by Robert Owen. and...

    BROOKLYN, N.Y. (WABC) -- Two police officers have been shot in Brooklyn. Officers were shot in a patrol cruiser. Both are in critical condition. They were taken to Woodhull hospital. Hundreds of police officers are on the scene. It is unclear what led up to the shooting or where exactly it took place, but streets are shut down near Tompkins and Myrtle avenues. Several surrounding streets are also blocked, and many people in their neighborhood are not allowed to leave their homes.

    All senior U.S. officials and CIA agents who authorized or carried out torture like waterboarding as part of former President George W. Bush's national security policy must be prosecuted, top U.N. officials said Wednesday. It's not clear, however, how human rights officials think these prosecutions will take place, since the Justice Department has declined to prosecute and the U.S. is not a member of the International Criminal Court. Zeid Raad al-Hussein, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, said it's "crystal clear" under international law that the United States, which ratified the U.N. Convention Against Torture in 1994, now has...

    It’s no secret that thousands of illegal immigrants have entered our country this year alone, and Obama has signed an executive order to give these immigrants amnesty. Despite all of that, Obama, during a Business Roundtable meeting on Wednesday, said that the U.S.-Mexico border is “less porous than it’s been anytime since the 1970s.” Border security, the truth is we are already doing a lot,” Obama reiterated. Twitter has blown up regarding illegal immigrants.

    Right after he learned something that amplified his anger at the Obama White House, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) went on the Mark Levin radio show with a tough message for his colleagues in Congress: Stop “cowering and hiding under our desks”; instead, says Sessions, go ahead and use “the power of the purse” to block Obama’s executive amnesty affecting close to 5 million illegals. What the Alabama Republican had just learned that further stiffened his resolve to stop the president’s unilateral move to change immigration law is that the administration is hiring 1,000 new people to process amnesty requests from...

    Minister Johnathan Gentry is noted for his original comments on Ferguson that went viral back in August. And he’s back, this time on Cavuto with a strong message of repudiation about what’s going on in Ferguson. He takes issue directly with the likes of Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and other activists who are blaming police departments instead of themselves, arguing that black males being killed by other blacks are the real problem. He said they need to look in the mirror and change themselves before they can effectively change communities.

    A recent report by a GOP-led committee that was seen as going easy on the Obama administration's Benghazi response is drawing stinging complaints from a number of Republicans on the panel, as well as survivors of the attack. Some GOP members on the House Intelligence Committee grumble that the final product "might as well have been written by the minority," while other House Republicans say they are frustrated with the committee's decision to release a report with so many "holes." Several lawmakers point their fingers at the committee's chairman, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich. Some members who disagreed with the findings...
