One couple knows all too well the pain suffered by the parents of James Foley, the American journalist executed last month by the Islamic State. Billy and Karen Vaughn also lost their only-son Aaron Carson Vaughn in 2011, when the SEAL Team Six soldier´s Chinook helicopter was shown down over Afghanistan. Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS. On Monday, the Vaughns wrote a letter, calling out Mr Obama´s decision to go golfing after holding an important press conference on the

No military dog left behind

We´ve all heard the expression: "A man´s best friend is his equipment." You haven´t? Well you must not work for the Pentagon. There, military dogs are considered mere "equipment" and as such can be left behind when the troops come home. It´s a bit more complicated than that. Military dogs are enlisted (drafted actually) to identify enemy locations, to seek out bombs and protect bases. It is dangerous, often traumatic, work. The dogs are credited with saving countless U.S. and allied lives, which is why the Taliban actively targets our dogs of war. While on active service, each dog is given a higher rank than its handler.

With temperatures in the Gulf still baking hot, wealthy Arabs are seeing out the end of the summer in London´s rather milder climes. And, in what is becoming an annual tradition, they have brought their supercars with them.

Jinan, China — Usually, people can´t get rid of cockroaches fast enough, but a farmer in China collects and cooks them up. Wang Fuming is no ordinary farmer. He´s a roach farmer, and the bug business is booming. Inside where they breed the cockroaches, it stinks of ammonia, and Fuming says that in those rooms there are nearly a million cockroaches. It is literally the stuff of nightmares. Fuming said he feels close to them. A crop of American cockroaches brings in serious cash for Fuming, who is a roach kingpin in a growing market in China.

Sometime on Saturday night, vandals attacked three Christian houses of worship in Columbus, Indiana, spray-painting the word "infidels" and citations of verses from the Koran on the outer walls. St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Lakeview Church of Christ, and East Columbus Christian Church all had the word "infidels" spray-painted on them, in places of prominence to be seen by worshipers. Cited in the Indianapolis Star, Columbus police spokesperson Matt Harris said that church employees discovered the vandalism when they arrived to prepare for Sunday services. At St. Bartholomew, the words "Qur´an 3:151" were also left. That verse reads:

David Cameron has given his personal backing to Brett and Naghemeh King by saying he believes the couple are trying to “do the very best for” their son Ashya.

Other senior MPs criticised the police for “criminalising” the couple and for their “heavy-handed” approach in issuing a Europe-wide warrant for their arrest.

It is no secret that TV viewing encourages mindless snacking, but it turns out that this effect may be particularly pronounced when it comes to watching certain types of shows. A new study has found that people watching a Hollywood action movie ate twice the amount of snacks as those watching an interview program. The study, published Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Internal Medicine, included 94 undergraduate students who were split in three groups to watch 20 minutes of TV. Each group was randomly assigned to watch either an excerpt from "The Island," an action flick starring Ewan McGregor

President Obama spent Labor Day in Wisconsin, opening the campaign season in a battleground state with a tight race for governor — but the Democrat at the top of the ticket there was nowhere to be seen. Mary Burke, who is battling to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, decided to steer clear of Obama’s visit to LaborFest, an annual salute to organized labor held in Milwaukee. She became the latest in a parade of Democrats in tight races who have tried to create space between themselves and a President with weak poll numbers.

Nashville, TN — "This is the mother, the metal mother," says Jay Millar, examining a brilliant silver disc on the machine floor of United Record Pressing in downtown Nashville. "And the mother is where it all starts." Fifty years ago United stamped out the Beatles´ first US single and dozens of Motown hits followed by countless 45s and 33s through the 1970s and 1980s. Today more than two dozen vintage presses stamp out albums in a hissing, whirring display of a century-old technology that not only refuses to die, but is roaring to life.

Kerry spent Labor Day enjoying himself while the Obama administration still admittedly has no strategy for dealing with the threat of ISIS in Iraq. Kerry was last seen kiteboarding in mid-August in Nantucket. Kerry’s last documented work-related activity was seen in the pages of Saturday’s New York Times, in the form of an op-ed entitled “To Defeat Terror, We Need the World’s Help: The Threat of ISIS Demands A Global Coalition.” During his 2004 presidential campaign, Kerry — whose wife inherited her late Republican husband’s ketchup fortune — genuinely believed that his enthusiasm for water sports would make him seem

One of the curious aspects of the Tea Party’s emergence during the past four years is the extent to which the mainstream media have fostered the idea that this political phenomenon represents a kind of radicalism. Certainly, some politicians of the so-called Tea Party have tossed out ideas and expressions that have been silly and warped. Does that mean, though, that the Tea Party, as a broad political movement, is radical? The answer is no. The Tea Party is a reactive movement, aimed at protecting the political mainstream from radical ideas, initiatives and policies of the left. Indeed, a review

Ronald Reagan kicked off his general election campaign on September 1, 1980, at Liberty State Park in New Jersey with Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty as his backdrop. The crowd was strategically filled with flag-waving Eastern Europeans who were there to raise Reagan’s profile with blue-collar, ethnic Catholic voters. Though Reagan arrived at the venue wearing a sports jacket and tie, Mrs. Reagan convinced him to discard both because of the extreme heat that day. The result was a tanned, handsome Reagan in a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and top buttons undone, his hair blowing

Most Americans realize that Labor Day is about celebrating workers and their contribution to our free society, but that won’t stop union bosses from stealing the spotlight to push their own agenda. Despite this, there is still much to celebrate this Labor Day. Workers from across the country have made substantial gains for workplace freedom. In America’s newest Right to Work state, a growing number of workers from across Michigan are joining the fight to protect their right to work from union bosses. In Wisconsin, the state Supreme Court upheld in entirety Gov. Scott Walker’s public-sector unionism reforms, commonly known

Starting on Tuesday, ABC journalist David Muir will replace Diane Sawyer as the anchor of World News. Given the liberal legacy of predecessors like Peter Jennings and Sawyer, it´s not surprising that Muir has a history of fawning over "cool kid" Barack Obama and attacking conservatives. The Media Research Center has compiled a Profile in Bias of his worst examples of liberal bias. [See below for videos.] On April 9, 2009, Muir, then the World News weekend anchor, thrilled over pictures of pictures of Obama at the G-20 summit.

When Leandra Becerra Lumbreras was born, the dust had still not settled on the Civil War, Teddy Roosevelt was a little-known cowboy in the Dakotas, and no one had ever heard of radio, basketball or the airplane. Dwight Eisenhower, Amelia Earhart, Babe Ruth and Adolph Hitler were not even alive when Lumbreras arrived on Aug. 31, 1887, in a small Mexican village. Yet through World War I, World War II, the Mexican Revolution, the Cold War and the Internet Age, Lumbreras has survived — reaching the ripe old age of 127 to become unofficially the oldest person who has ever
