Retired Army Brig. Gen. John “Doc” Bahnsen, Jr. isn’t shy about his love for America or his willingness to fight for her. “We’ve got a great country — the greatest country on earth. And some things are worth fighting for,” the decorated 81-year-old Vietnam war veteran told FoxNews.com. “If our country’s in danger, then I think we fight. And then, by God, I’ll join the fight. And I think I should go to the front of the line, too.” Bahnsen’s “lead from the front” philosophy served him well during his two combat tours in Vietnam. “You have to set the example on a

The Clintons: New York’s Sixth Crime Family

The list of New York’s legendary crime families — the Bonannos, Colombos, Gambinos, Genoveses, and Luccheses — requires this addition: The Clintons. Hardly a day passes without Hillary, Bill, or one of their gang landing in hot water. The Clintons’ inner circle teems with people embroiled in scandal, under investigation, or heading into or out of jail. In a report that surfaced Wednesday, the State Department inspector general pulverized Hillary’s claims that her outlaw e-mail server was perfectly legal. The report said that Hillary “did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records

4 things Hillary Clinton got wrong

In the wake of a scathing inspector general´s report regarding her exclusive use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton didn´t say much. But what she did offer up — in an interview with Univision´s Maria Elena Salinas in California — showed, yet again, that Clinton will stick to her story on her email server even if the increasingly indisputable facts get in the way. Here´s what Clinton told Salinas: It’s the same story. Um, just like previous secretaries of state, I used a personal email. Many people did. It was not at all unprecedented. I

Boxing promoter Bob Arum is getting behind the idea of a Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders debate. He´s even offering a minimum of a $20 million donation to charity, which is more than Trump requested. "Top Rank, Inc. is ready to promote ‘THE HEAVYWEIGHT DEBATE: DONALD TRUMP vs. BERNIE SANDERS.´ The idea of the debate was first proposed on Wednesday night when Trump appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Kimmel asked Trump if he would consider it.

MIAMI — U.S. government forecasters expect a near-normal Atlantic hurricane season, after three relatively slow years. But they also say climate conditions that influence storm development are making it difficult to predict how many hurricanes and tropical storms will arise over the next six months. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration´s outlook Friday called for a near-normal season with 10 to 16 named storms, with four to eight hurricanes and one to four "major" ones with winds reaching 111 mph and up. The long-term season averages are 12 named storms, with six hurricanes and three major ones. The Atlantic hurricane

The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has launched what World Bulletin characterized as a “satirical public awareness campaign to challenge growing Islamophobia in America.” CAIR explains: “Prompted at least in part by anti-Muslim rhetoric employed by public figures like Donald Trump and other GOP candidates we decided to launch Islamophobin. With Islamophobin, we hope to dispel a serious problem with a witty and humorous manner. Buy and distribute Islamophobin to help us dispel Islamophobia.” CAIR is congratulating itself on its “witty and humorous” idea, but it isn’t even original to the group.

Obama and Ho Chi Minh:
Embracing Evil

On his visit to meet with Communist leaders in Vietnam, Obama criticized the United States for having, “too much money in our politics, and rising economic inequality, racial bias in our criminal justice system.” He praised Ho Chi Minh’s evocation of the “American Declaration of Independence” and claimed that we had “shared ideals” with the murderous Communist dictator. Shortly after the “evocation” that Obama praised, his beloved Ho was hard at work purging the opposition, political and religious. When Obama references these “shared ideals”, does he perhaps mean Ho’s declaration, “All who do not follow the line laid down by

The Obama administration has spent at least $18.5 million to fly “unaccompanied children” caught crossing into the country illegally to parents and relatives inside the United States, according to newly obtained figures. The numbers, shared with FoxNews.com by the Senate subcommittee on immigration, were provided by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in response to questions from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. The numbers shed light on the extent of a program that has drawn scrutiny not just from lawmakers but the federal courts, amid concerns the U.S. government is effectively aiding smugglers. “This shows how fundamentally flawed our approach to immigration enforcement has been in

Family of Kate Steinle files lawsuit

Relatives of the woman shot to death on a San Francisco pier last year filed a lawsuit Friday saying the illegal immigrant accused in the killing should have been in custody if not for a series of mistakes by city and federal workers. The killing of Kate Steinle in July 2015 and the arrest of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez put San Francisco's leaders on the defensive as critics and outside politicians called for a change in the city's sanctuary law. Despite national outrage, San Francisco's Board of Supervisors on Tuesday upheld those protections for people in the country illegally. The sheriff at the time of the killing, Ross Mirkarimi, is named in the lawsuit, along with ICE and the Bureau of Land Management.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was supposed to have turned over all work-related emails to the State Department to be released to the public. But an agency audit found at least three emails never seen before — including Clinton´s own explanation of why she wanted her emails kept private. (Snip) The Clinton campaign has previously denied that her home server was breached, but newly revealed emails show an aide worried it could have been compromised. The existence of these previously unreleased messages — which appear to have been found among electronic files of four former top Clinton State Department aides —

Acclaimed director-producer Steven Spielberg delivered a jocular commencement speech to Harvard University’s Class of 2016 Thursday and lobbed a thinly veiled attack at presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump over his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. The Jurassic Park director urged the crowd of graduates to appreciate the past–“to look behind them” at the history of America and those who fled genocide and mass-misfortune for freedom in America. “We are a nation of immigrants … at least for now,” Spielberg said to laughter and applause.

WASHINGTON – Rev. Al Sharpton told PJM that presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump should release the names and titles of the “blacks and browns” working for any of his companies to support his claim that he will win the African-American vote in the general election. Sharpton was asked if he plans to meet with Trump about race issues as the election process moves forward. “I haven’t sought a meeting with him nor has he sought a meeting with me.

With President Obama´s historic visit to Hiroshima Friday, Americans are divided on whether or not they approve of the U.S. dropping atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945 near the end of World War II. The U.S. dropped the bombs to try to avoid what would have been a bloody ground assault on the Japanese mainland, following the fierce battle for Japan´s southernmost Okinawan islands, which took 12,520 American lives and an estimated 200,000 Japanese, about half civilians. Forty-three percent of Americans say they approve of the use of the atomic bomb on Japanese

Thirty five years after his infamous assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan, shooter John Hinkley Jr. is living a surprisingly ´normal life´. The would-be assassin has been living with his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia, for 17 days a month since last year - when a judge said he could spend time away from a mental home where he has spent the last three decades. During those visits home, it would be easy for Hinckley to be mistaken for any other Williamsburg resident. Now in his 60s, he can be found at the cinema catching a movie, taking a trip to Colonial

WASHINGTON -- The Senate majority whip today reiterated his call for a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton´s use of a private email server in the wake of the State Department inspector general´s report that sharply criticized the practices of the former secretary of State. The IG found that Clinton, who refused to be interviewed for the investigation, used the home-based server throughout her term as senator and in her 2008 presidential campaign, and kept on using it once at the State Department. "Sending emails from a personal account to other employees at their Department accounts is not an appropriate method of

Hillary Clinton´s former aides won´t have to watch their testimony in a case involving her emails air on television networks any time soon. A federal judge granted Clinton´s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills´ wish on Thursday that video of their depositions be kept under wraps. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said transcripts must be made available publicly, however, because taxpayers have ´a right to know´ why Clinton set up a server in her home and created a personal email network that some of her aides also used.

Claude Walker, Attorney General of the U.S. Virgin Islands, has withdrawn a subpoena of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a think tank whose work has cast doubt on climate change. The subpoena, filed in the District of Columbia, demanded over a decade’s worth of documents related to the group’s energy and climate change research. Walker’s subpoena was filed as part of an effort by a coalition of attorneys general in 17 states to “build upon the recent progress the United States has made in combating climate change” by prosecuting climate change skeptics for fraud.

How different will the electoral map be this year? There’s no question that the post-Reagan order of red and blue states is not nearly as durable as the prognosticator class has supposed. Minnesota, for example, has gone Democratic in every election since 1972, but some of those Blue Team victories have been by 2 points or less. Or Texas, the bulwark of the modern GOP, has been red since 1980, but twice by less than 5 points. What remains to be seen is how much and how soon demographic trends could tip states one way or the other and – of more immediate

In Clinton’s first recorded commentary on the case, she said she took the case as a favor for a local prosecutor. In taped conversations that took place in the early 1980s, Clinton told reporter Roy Reed that she was approached by a prosecutor who told her the rapist wanted to be defended by a female lawyer. “A prosecutor called me years ago, said

Faced with sagging fundraising numbers, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign on Friday appealed to supporters and admitted it was wrong in assuming Donald Trump couldn’t possibly win a general election contest. Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told supporters in an email that the campaign took for granted that donations would pick up once a Clinton vs. Trump November match-up became certain. Instead, the campaign says fundraising numbers in May have dropped, and the Clinton operation’s assumption that voters would reject Mr. Trump have been proven wrong. “One assumption seemed pretty safe: That if we were to wind up running against Donald Trump,

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump says President Barack Obama is the best thing that ever happened to President Jimmy Carter. “He is the single best thing to ever happen to Jimmy Carter because a lot of people are no longer looking at Jimmy Carter as our worst president,” Trump said during his campaign rally at Rimrock Auto Arena in Billings, Montana.
