  • North Korea Is Not Pleased: Dance Video Features Kim Jong Un

    He grins, he fumes, he fights — and through it all, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un dances his way in and out of preposterous situations. That's the premise of a video that has become popular in China and reportedly sparked a protest from North Korea. Citing "a source in China," the Chosun Ilbo reports that "the North feels the clip, which shows Kim dancing and Kung-Fu fighting, 'seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority.'"

    ED HENRY, FOX NEWS: At your Burma townhall a couple of days ago, you tried to inspire young leaders by saying, "governments need to be held accountable, need to be responsive to the people." I wonder how you square that with your former adviser, Jonathan Gruber claiming you were not transparent about the health law because in his words the American people, the voters are stupid. Did you mislead Americans about the taxes, about keeping your plan in order to get the bill passed?

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that the Americas were discovered by Muslims in the 12th century, nearly three centuries before Genoese explorer Christopher Columbus claimed the discovery in the name of Spain. "Contacts between Latin America and Islam date back to the 12th century. Muslims discovered America in 1178, not Christopher Columbus," the president said in a televised speech during an Istanbul summit of Muslim leaders from Latin America. "Muslim sailors arrived in America from 1178. Columbus mentioned the existence of a mosque on a hill on the Cuban coast," Erdogan said. Erdogan said that Ankara was even...

    CHICAGO — When Chicago Public Schools student Jennifer Gonzalez stepped up to a White House podium Monday, nervous to give a speech in front of first lady Michelle Obama and dozens of other dignitaries, she fell back on her theater training. Gonzalez, 16, also got to chat with the first lady as photos were snapped before the event. "When I told her I was from Chicago, she said 'It's an honor for you to represent my hometown,'" Gonzalez said.

    A Fresno State University student is facing sexual assault charges and a sheep is being monitored by veterinarians after a bizarre incident at the Central Valley school, ABC7 Los Angeles reported. What is being referred to as the “sheep incident” has shaken up Fresno State after a student heard noises coming from a barn and found a 23-year-old man having sex with one of the ewes. The unidentified student responsible for the deed told police he had drank alcohol and was stressed out about a midterm, but offered up no other defense of his actions.

    Dear President Obama, You’ve been a great friend for the last six years and, to express our appreciation, we’d like to acknowledge some of your many helpful actions: 1) In 2009, our presidential election results were so dubious that millions of brave, pro-democracy protesters risked their lives to demonstrate throughout our country. When our Basij paramilitary force brutalized them, you kept your response irrelevantly mild for the sake of “engaging” us. That surely helped Iranians understand the risks of protesting our “free” election of 2012 (involving our eight handpicked candidates). It was indeed a very orderly rubberstamp. 2) After eight...

    Rep. Luis Gutiérrez said Friday that he will consider running for president if President Obama does not "go big" on immigration executive action. The Illinois Democrat was asked about a possible presidential run by MSNBC host Jose Diaz-Balart on Friday. "If the president doesn't go big, if the president doesn't go wide, if he isn't generous, certainly there are many throughout the country who say there should be a challenge for the heart and soul of the Democratic Party if it, once again, turns its back on our immigrant community," Gutiérrez said. "And if that were to happen, I'll give...

    Every so often, I see a cartoon or image that provides a teachable moment about economics. This Wizard-of-Id parody, for instance, contains a lot of insight about labor economics. As does this Chuck Asay cartoon and this Robert Gorrell cartoon. And if you want to understand Keynesian economics, this Scott Stantis cartoon is a gem, as is the third image in this post (and while there’s no economic substance, this Lisa Benson cartoon about Keynesianism is worth sharing simply because it’s funny). Regarding the minimum wage, Henry Payne effectively shows – in this cartoon and this cartoon – how mandating...

    WASHINGTON — As most Republicans were taking a victory lap the morning after the elections, a group of conservatives huddled anxiously in a conference room not far from Capitol Hill and agreed that now is the time for confrontation, not compromise and conciliation. Despite Republicans’ ascension to Senate control and an expanded House majority, many conservatives from the party’s activist wing fear that congressional leaders are already being too timid with President Obama. They do not want to hear that government shutdowns are off the table or that repealing the Affordable Care Act is impossible — two things Republican leaders...

    Earlier this week, a reporter, an editor and a copy editor were suspended over a story they'd worked on highlighting criticisms of a financial partnership between The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education and the activewear retailer Lululemon. There were no errors, fabrications or plagiarized quotes in the story, but a version originally published on Saturday relied primarily on critical anonymously posted comments appearing on the Lululemon website. (The quotations taken from those comments have been removed from the Huffington Post article, according to an editor's note attached to the piece.) Several months earlier, in August, a junior-level writer...

    Brigitte Bardot has done so much to further the rights of animals. But the rights of humans are something she has no interest getting involved in. Bardot has repeatedly in the past made hateful comments about immigration and France’s Muslim community. And now she’s shared a rather ill-advised opinion on everyone’s favorite F-word. In a recent interview with the Daily Mail‘s Liz Jones, Bardot was asked if she considered herself a feminist. “No. I hate feminism,” she bluntly replied, adding, “I am a masculinist.” When pushed to comment on whether she thought the feminist fight was too insular, crippling other...

Renee Ellmers in Tuesday's election, losing his bid to represent North Carolina's 2nd Congressional District, The Associated Press reports. Aiken, 35, won the Democratic nomination after his opponent in the race died suddenly during the primary campaign. If the Idol alum had won, he would have been the first openly gay congressman elected in the South.

    The GOP had a good night. But the map, the math and the reality of Washington dysfunction favor the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2016. But here’s the thing: In politics, the easy answer isn’t always the only answer, and the winner of an election isn’t always the one who benefits most. Take a closer look at demography, geography and the road ahead for the parties, and it’s clear that the long-term winner of the 2014 midterms wasn’t the GOP at all. The long-term winner, in fact, wasn’t even on the ballot this year. Her name is Hillary Clinton. Of course...

Here's how Good Ol' Joe opened [emphasis added throughout]: "No matter what happens on Tuesday, I'm proud of you, Mark." "No matter what happens?" Not exactly a bold prediction of victory! Particularly when it was followed by this: "You've helped to keep us in this campaign." Just kept us in it? Don't you remember...

One sticker shows a multi-colored flag, another a pink equal sign, both of which Hodges found “very cheery.” “I left them on the car because the bright colors remind me of my flower garden,” she says. “Bill used...

Biden said next week’s choice between Democrat Bruce Braley and Republican Joni Ernst for the open Senate seat in Iowa was critical to the outcome. If Braley wins and the Democrats maintain their majority, he said, the Republicans in Congress will be open to compromising with Democrats on issues such as raising the federal minimum wage. “If that happens and it will, what’s going...

To make their point, they had a blow-up coal power plant that was running on a fan powered by wind and solar charged batteries. Before the protest was over, however, the batteries died and their solar panel could not produce enough energy to keep the power plant standing upright.
