    Members of the House Armed Services Committee met with Jordan's King Abdullah Tuesday not long after news broke that ISIS had burned to death a Jordanian pilot captured in the fight against the terrorist group. In a private session with lawmakers, the king showed an extraordinary measure of anger — anger which he expressed by citing American movie icon Clint Eastwood.

    A man in Georgia last week stumbled across what he now calls 'the best hunting story of my life'. Out looking for deer in the woods near his home in Chattahoochee Hills, Casey Sanders said he heard a shout before seeing a naked young man stranded by a creek. Shocked and suspicious, Sanders announced that he was armed and started filming the bizarre encounter, which took place on October 2. He soon figured out the confused twenty-something had attended the electronic dance festival TomorrowWorld, which was set on a 500-acre property not far away, but had finished four days earlier.

Tahmooressi's most tireless champion in Washington has been Rep. Duncan Hunter, (R-Calif.), himself former Marine major and veteran of three combat tours. And Hunter has drawn in the top brass of the elite fighting force with a plea for help lighting a fire under the relevant powers in the Capitol.

The deer ran around a corner of the store, and Bianco hopped out of his truck, gun in hand, and...

    Parents of a deaf child named Hunter were told by his Nebraska public preschool that they must change his name because he was in violation of the school district’s weapons policy. To sign his name, the three-year-old crosses his index and middle fingers then wags his hands. This sign apparently appeared to school officials to represent a gun. Grand Island Public Schools’ policy section 8470 — Weapons in Schools states: “Students are forbidden to knowingly and voluntarily possess, handle, transmit or use any instrument in school, on school grounds or at school functions that is a firearm, weapon, or looks...

In May 2011 Mr. Zuckerberg made a pledge to consume, for one year, only meat he had hunted or slaughtered himself.

    It was billed to be an explosive tell-all about what 'really happened' during the affair that ended a marriage and the dreams of the man who was being pipped to be the next U.S. president. But after all the hype, it seems not that many people really wanted to hear Rielle Hunter's side of the story, as the book about her relationship with former senator John Edwards has sold just 6,000 copies. Due to poor sales, Hunter seems to have dropped under the radar and scheduled no additional tour dates despite an initial media blitz.

And, as has been the case for decades, the unemployment rate used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not tell the whole story.

As Mitt Romney's campaign has suffered a startling decline in recent weeks, only to see Newt Gingrich eclipse the former Massachusetts governor's front-runner status, the battle for the Iowa caucuses set for Jan. 3 has become a wide-open race. New survey data prepared for the Perry campaign and shared by a source close within the campaign shows that the Texas governor may be poised to do much better in next month’s Iowa caucuses...

    A source on the Rick Perry campaign tells Hot Air that the Texas governor conducted some Texas-size fundraising in the third quarter. Coming in just a little over halfway through, Perry raised $17.1 million. That number would put Perry somewhere between $4-6 million ahead of Mitt Romney’s rumored total for Q3, according to this report last week from the Boston Globe. It’s also likely to far outpace Herman Cain’s fundraising or that of the other Republicans currently in the race. The pace is even more impressive. Perry had 49 days in which to raise funds, rather than the full 92...
