    Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Saturday that strains between Russia and the West have plunged the world into a "new Cold War". With tensions high over the lingering Ukraine conflict and Russia's backing of the Syrian regime, Medvedev said: "All that's left is an unfriendly policy of NATO against Russia". "We can say it even more clearly: We have slid into a new period of Cold War," he said, speaking at the Munich Security Conference. "Almost every day we are accused of making new horrible threats either against NATO as a whole, against Europe or against the US or...

Most of the arrests were in Georgia, Texas and North Carolina, officials said, and were of migrants who had lost their cases and were ordered deported by immigration judges. The deportations are part of “concerted nationwide enforcement operations” to achieve a “greater rate” of deportation of parents who crossed the border illegally...

    The South will play a crucial role in the 2016 presidential contest, both in the nominating process and in the General Election. For the Republicans, Dixie's plethora of primaries come quickly after the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary and will probably determine the nominee. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton's strong support among African Americans in the Southern primaries should cement her already commanding lead for her party's nomination. And in the General Election, at least three Southern states are likely to be competitive and may well determine the outcome of the race for the White House. Until...

    Ted Cruz is continuing to consolidate support from among many of his primary rivals. Recently, as leader Ben Carson has seen a virtual implosion within his campaign, and with his poll numbers in a freefall, Cruz has surged into the lead in Iowa, and is in a solid second place nationally as well as in South Carolina, Florida, Nevada and Georgia. Cruz's surge is largely based on picking up the support of Carson voters, especially evangelical voters who are leaving Carson for Cruz in large numbers. But Cruz is also seeing support come his way from the "Liberty" movement. Steve...

    When the news broke on Monday, Dec. 7 that Jimmy Carter, who recently disclosed he had a serious and likely-fatal form of cancer, suddenly had 'no evidence of cancer,' Carter-watchers went a little crazy. Some people, of course, were thrilled to hear that the former U.S. president was no longer at death's door. Others, especially strong pro-Israel activists were aghast when they read in a widely-circulated news article, that Keytruda, the drug credited for Carter's health turnaround, was developed in Israel. Carter is widely-reviled as a virulent and relentless basher of Israel. A 2014 article in YNet described Keytruda as...

    Newt Gingrich told Breitbart News that the country is in rebellion against the coastal power centers and that Donald Trump might be the candidate who can "kick down the doors" of the establishment. Former House speaker Gingrich weighed in on Trump's rise. "I think he represents a different era" in the same conservative movement, Gingrich said. "The system has become so incompetent and outrageously buracratic. The centers of power are so, so in New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, that the whole rest of the country is in rebellion. And people are looking for somebody who can kick down...

    The Marietta High School auditorium was packed Wednesday night, but not for a performance of the Nutcracker or some other holiday play. The 800-capacity theater was overflowing with people who spent two hours learning how to increase their odds of surviving an attack by an active shooter. The program, called Civilian Response to an Active Shooter Event, was put on by the Marietta Police Department and combined a lecture of best practices, with video training and 911 calls from actual mass shooting events. The major take-away: be aware of the surroundings; have a plan; and take action as soon as...

    Ever since Iranian terrorists imprisoned American Embassy personnel in Tehran early in November, these 50 men and women—their safety, their health, and their future—have been our central concern. We've made every effort to obtain their release on honorable, peaceful, and humanitarian terms, but the Iranians have refused to release them or even to improve the inhumane conditions under which these Americans are being held captive. It must be made clear that the failure to release the hostages will involve increasingly heavy costs to Iran and to its interests. I have today ordered the following steps. Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury...

    The liberal media and Republican party elites erupted today after Donald Trump announced his plan to ban Muslim immigrants from the US until the government can assure it is safe to do so. But Democrat Jimmy Carter did the same thing, and much more during the Iranian hostage crisis. During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency. During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put...

    It may come as a surprise to some, but the world has not stopped turning after Donald Trump issued his most incendiary proposal yet on Monday. The Republican front-runner proclaimed that the only proper course for America to take in the wake of the San Bernardino attack was to bar further Muslim immigration into the country until “we know what the hell is going on.” The reaction, from all corners of the political sphere, was hyperbolic. Liberals took the hyperventilation up to 11 and officially decided that Trump literally is the second coming of Adolf Hitler. That response was probably...
