    Gov. John Kasich of Ohio wants to bridge the divides in America. And that's exactly what Kasich, a Republican presidential contender in the 2016 election, spoke with Business Insider about this week while on tour promoting his new book, "Two Paths: America Divided or United." At times fiercely critical of President Donald Trump, both before and after the campaign, Kasich has positioned himself within the Republican Party as an outspoken voice on healthcare, the opioid crisis, immigration, and trade. And while he's not revealing his plans, there is certainly plenty of speculation about whether he will make another run at...

  • Mobile-built Austal LCS stranded in Singapore (US Navy ship)

    An Austal-built Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and crew are stranded in Singapore because of a change in training standards propelled by a series of recent engineering breakdowns throughout the LCS fleet. The USS Coronado, built in Mobile nearly five years ago, deployed to the Pacific Rim in June last year to relieve the LCS Fort Worth. The Coronado and its crew were supposed to arrive back in the home port of San Diego by Thanksgiving but could now end up being abroad for an indefinite period as they wait for a relief crew to be trained to the new Naval...

    George Soros brings his personal history to bear on the threat posed by today’s ascendant populists. Open societies are in crisis, and various forms of closed societies – from fascist dictatorships to mafia states – are on the rise. Because elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations, electorates have become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism.

    I want Obama to linger around like the stain on American history he has been – so he can have his nose rubbed in the success of a true leader, the way some used to rub a dog’s nose in its feces to teach it the error of its ways when house-breaking it.

    Tyler DurdenDecember 28, 2016 Yesterday we noted Michelle Obama's appearance on Oprah in which she hinted that Trump's election was the end of "hope" for America, saying "now we're feeling what not having hope feels like." The comments from Michelle have received a lot of backlash over the past two days but perhaps no one has crushed her new "hopelessness" narrative better than Judge Jeanine Pirro of Fox News. Pirro's opening monologue last night was full of epic one-liners slamming the First Lady's comments....below are a couple of favorite quotes but the full video is definitely worth a listen. "This...

    The death of Fidel Castro last night has sparked an outpouring of reverie and adulation on the left and a wave of revulsion from those less enamored of the thuggish dictator. Paul Mirengoff of Powerline looks at the reaction from the Washington Post and New York Times – two of the dictator's most fervent disciples:

    For the second time in two months, The Navy's new $4 billion stealth warship has broken down. As Military.com reports, the ripped-from-the-pages-of-a-sci-fi mag-looking USS Zumwalt is now in Panama for repairs after suffering a breakdown while passing through the Panama Canal on Monday evening.Military.com's Hope Hodge Seck reports that a spokesman for U.S. 3rd Fleet, Cmdr. Ryan Perry, told Military.com that the commander of 3rd Fleet, Vice Adm.

    BATH, Maine — The Bath-built USS Zumwalt, the first-in-class “stealth” destroyer that left the Bath shipyard on Sept. 7, broke down Monday night while passing through the Panama Canal and was towed by tugs through the locks toward the Pacific Ocean. The DDG 1000, the first of a class of three destroyers that cost an estimated $22 billion combined, “suffered an engineering casualty,” the Navy Times reported. The Zumwalt was towed through the locks to Rodman, a former U.S. military base.
  • The USS Zumwalt Can't Fire Its Guns Because the Ammo Is Too Expensive

    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...
  • Che Guevara’s Motorcycle Diaries: A Hippie Discovers Communism and Becomes a Monster

    The Motorcycle Diaries is not a “coming-of-age” story as it has been described by a number of commentators. When Che Guevara took off on a motorcycle journey across South America he was not a teenager; he was 23-years-old and therefore already “of age.” In my view, this book has nothing to do with coming-of-age issues, rather it is a “hippie discovers communism” kind of story. The Che Guevara that we meet in The Motorcycle Diaries is a hippie who drifts from place to place without any coherent plan. He is alienated from society. He sees the ill effects of materialism...

    After being mentored by the labor leader John L. Lewis, Alinsky founded the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), which trained community organizers around the country. Aided by the liberal millionaire Marshall Field III, Alinsky expanded his mission of inspiring and organizing poor, urban communities across America. "Reveille for Radicals," his 1946 book, became a best-seller. Perhaps even better known is his second book “Rules for Radicals,” which contains an acknowledgement to Lucifer, “who at least won his own kingdom.” During the 1960’s Alinsky set up institutes to train other organizers, and his reputation as an activist grew. In 1969 college student...

    The State Department is hosting a two-day conference on the world's oceans, beginning today, and it's expected to produce a raft of announcements and initiatives, including new marine protected areas -- one off the coast of New England -- as well as a ban on single-use plastic bags. Ahead of the conference, press reports said President Obama on Thursday will establish the first national marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean to permanently protect nearly 5,000 square miles of underwater canyons and mountains off the coast of New England. The White House said the designation will lead to a ban on...

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been wearing an interesting pair of socks during practice. Kaepernick ignited a nationwide debate last Friday when he chose to sit during the national anthem at a home pre-season game in San Francisco. CBS Sports and a handful of Twitter users noticed that Kaepernick has been wearing practice socks that depict little cartoon police officers as pigs:

He retired in September 2015 after being caught but was subjected to no punishment or restitution. He now operates Renegade Classics Northern Virginia in Manassas, Va., part of a nationwide chain of outlets that specializes in clothing and gear that appeals to...

    President Obama called the shooting deaths of at least five Dallas police officers a “vicious, calculated and despicable attack” and a “wrenching reminder” of the sacrifices of law enforcement. Speaking from Warsaw on Friday after the first of a series of meetings with European Union and NATO leaders, the president said he had offered his condolences to the Dallas mayor overnight. “We are horrified over these events,” he said. “We stand united with the people in the police department in Dallas.” The officers were monitoring a peaceful protest Thursday of police shootings of black men this week in Minnesota and...
