    A former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says in a new book that while Bill Clinton was in the White House, a key component of the president's nuclear launch protocol went missing. "The codes were actually missing for months. This is a big deal," says Gen. Hugh Shelton. "We dodged a silver bullet."

    Hamilton actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who lectured Vice President-elect Mike Pence Friday from the Broadway stage about fears of bigotry under a Trump presidency, is under intense fire for sexually suggestive tweets some social media users have called racist and sexist. In a March 2012 tweet, Dixon wrote, “St. Patty’s day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes who like white chicks. Happy holidays boys.”
  • Source: The Rolling Stones Were Invited to Play the Inauguration In September — By the Democrats

    Last week, a source to Digital Music News leaked that the Rolling Stones had been invited to play the Presidential Inauguration. Now, it appears that the invitation came months ago, and it didn’t come from the Trump Administration. We’re now getting a better idea on just how cocky the Democratic Party was heading into Election Day. According to a connected source disclosing details with Digital Music News over the weekend, it now appears that the Rolling Stones were invited to play the Inauguration back in September. But the invitation looks like it came from the Democratic Party, Clinton campaign, or...

    Shocking election results often allow supporters of the winning candidate to serve up piping hot plates of schadenfreude, and Donald Trump's upset victory is no exception. This clip started making the rounds on Righty twitter in the immediate aftermath of Trump being declared the winner last week; its renewed relevance was made especially delicious because Lefties had shared the hell out of it in October as the ultimate 'mic drop' smack-down of the man they were sure would lose. So sure, in fact, that President Obama agreed to tempt fate by making this 'joke' on Jimmy Kimmel's late night show -- and...

    Everyone from pollsters to pundits got the result of the US presidential election wrong. But few can have made it in such an expensive manner. Newsweek and a partner that prints up special commemorative issues has been forced into an embarrassing recall, after it sent out 125,000 copies of its Madam President issue designed to celebrate Hillary Clinton's win. Although Topix Media had also prepared a Donald Trump version it thought it was safe to dispatch only the version detailing “Hillary Clinton's historic journey to the White House”, as the cover put it. “Like everybody else, we got it wrong,”...

    The excitement is not there the way it was for the first black president, but there will be moments, beginning on Inauguration Day, when it will seep into the culture how dramatic the shift is from that long line of white male presidents to Barack Obama and then his chosen successor, a woman whose talents and toughness he witnessed firsthand as he battled her in the 2008 primaries. Clinton will become a woman president, and not just a president who happens to be a woman. Just as Obama’s special place in history was revealed when he talked about racial issues,...

    Just three weeks after commissioning the USS Zumwalt, the U.S. Navy has admitted it is canceling ammunition specially developed for the ship's high-tech gun systems because the rounds are too expensive. . The guns, tailor made for the destroyer, will be unable to fire until the Navy chooses a cheaper replacement round. The Zumwalt-class destroyers were conceived in the late 1990s as the first of a new generation of stealthy warships. The radar signature of the 610 foot long warship is that of a 50-foot fishing boat, making the Zumwalts great for getting in close to an enemy coastline and...

    They assured each other he had no real shot of winning the presidency. They said he would be an embarrassment to the Republican Party and drag down the rest of the party with him, both in 2016 and for years to come. To be sure, many arguments of the so-called “NeverTrump” movement in the Republican Party were based on mere principle. But some were more political pleas — that he was bad for the party, electorally speaking, and that Trump-inspired doom lay ahead. It hasn't happened — at least, it hadn't as of the race's final week. Trump appears to...

Christina Ferguson, 32, was arrested on Oct. 17 after disrupting what was actually a meeting of the Tomorrow River Conservation Club.

    An American cyberattack on North Korea half a decade ago was fruitless overall, sources say. The National Security Agency (NSA) led a mission in 2010 to damage North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, Reuters reported on Friday. Operatives tried using a variant of the Stuxnet computer virus deployed against Iran that same year, the news service said, with developers crafting a version that would activate once it reached Korean-language settings on targeted machines. Operatives hoped the virus would disable centrifuges for enriching uranium, much like it had when used against Iran, Reuters said, but the cyberattack stumbled when it encountered North...

    The Republicans introduced (and passed) a bill that would require the President of the United States to enforce laws as they are written. Republican Trey Gowdy summarized the sentiment behind the bill nicely when he explained that Congress passes laws… Not suggestions. The bill is in response to the President’s most recent unilateral changes to Obamacare. But, the fact that it takes a literal “act of Congress” to make the President do his job, is not really the point of this article. I’m afraid it is far more basic than that. Representative Sheila Jackson, a Democrat from Texas (yes…...

    DALLAS — Fire officials say more than 30 people attending a Tony Robbins event in Dallas have been treated for burns after the motivational speaker encouraged them to walk on hot coals.

    The U.S. Air Force has lost records concerning 100,000 investigations into everything from workplace disputes to fraud. A database that hosts files from the Air Force’s inspector general and legislative liaison divisions became corrupted last month, destroying data created between 2004 and now, service officials said. Neither the Air Force nor Lockheed Martin, the defense firm that runs the database, could say why it became corrupted or whether they’ll be able to recover the information. Lockheed tried to recover the information for two weeks before notifying the Air Force, according to a service statement. The Air Force has begun asking...

Several Trump supporters were assaulted amid ugly scenes - but apparently they weren't the only ones "feeling the Bern." In fact, video footage from the day shows how at one point, several Bernie supporters apparently mistook each other for Trump fans, and promptly began a violent brawl - before realizing they were all on the same side. In a somewhat comical scene, as other Sanders supporters...
