Prince Charles has blasted a former close aide for “betraying” him in an explosive new book. The Queen’s ex-Press Secretary Dickie Arbiter is set to reveal secrets about Charles’ relationship with Diana and the breakdown of two other royal marriages. A palace source said: “Charles is furious. This man was a trusted friend.” For 12 years, Buckingham Palace Press Secretary Arbiter was regarded by Prince Charles as a man he could trust with his deepest secrets. Every inch the tight-lipped loyal aide, Arbiter stood by him during the bitter breakdown of his marriage to Diana and his affair with Camilla

LOS ANGELES -- Alfredo Garcia, a notorious serial plaintiff, convicted felon and undocumented immigrant, has been deported to Mexico. Garcia made it his business to sue small businesses, filing more than 800 lawsuits against businesses in the Los Angeles area for alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Garcia hasn´t held a job since he fell out of an avocado tree while he was drinking and high on cocaine about 18 years ago. Garcia´s back was broken, his spinal cord severed. Since then, he´s made a living off these lawsuits. It´s incredibly profitable, for Garcia and his longtime attorney

Liberman Calls to
Hand Gaza Over to UN

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) made headlines Monday, after he suggested Israel is considering turning Gaza over to the UN. "The operation is not over," he said, referring to a seven-hour unilateral humanitarian ceasefire and reports the IDF is slowly withdrawing from Gaza. "We are continuing to destroy terror tunnels and to regroup in the IDF." "We need to make decisions regarding the continued operation," he continued. "We stand at the moment with several clear options: an agreement, defeating Hamas, or limbo - something unclear where we only respond to fire. The third option simply isn’t relevant."

There’s never an easy time to be a supporter of Israel, but in the last few weeks it has been harder than ever. But one thing never changes: The other side always comes down to challenging Israel’s right to exist. Yes, these days you have to deal with the lopsided casualty totals. With no hint of irony, the media keeps reporting that Israel is losing the media war. How could it win? Most accounts give a number of Israeli military dead, while treating all the losses in Gaza as civilian. When one side’s “warriors” don’t wear uniforms and hide in

The nation’s law enforcement agencies, from local cops all the way to the Department of Homeland Security, are always on the lookout for terrorist threats, and that includes at home as well as in far flung deserts and mountains. And they’re collecting data on all sorts of groups. What may come as a surprise is that, if you’re a regular reader of Hot Air or many other similar outlets, you might be one of the people they are watching! A new report this summer from a group of university analysts has identified the chief concerns of law enforcement agents at

Experts: Obama can do a
lot to change immigration

WASHINGTON - What can President Barack Obama actually do without Congress to change U.S. immigration policies? A lot, it turns out. There are some limits under federal law, and anything the White House ultimately decides to do may be challenged in court as unconstitutional. But leading legal experts say the White House almost certainly could delay indefinitely efforts to deport millions of immigrants already in the U.S. illegally, and it could give them official work permits that would allow them to legally find jobs, obtain driver’s licenses and pay income taxes. Here is what Obama could not do without approval

Rick Perry won´t decide before early next year if he will run for president again in 2016, but he does not “shy away from telling people that I am actively considering it.” “The lessons I learned in 2011 were frustrating and humbling,” the Texas Republican says. “I may have been a little arrogant in my thinking that I had been the governor of Texas for 12 years and what could be harder than that?” He found out quickly that some things are harder. And running for president of the United States is one of them. He admits that engaging “in an intellectual discussion

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- An Israeli airstrike killed a militant leader in the Gaza Strip on Monday, just hours ahead of an expected seven-hour truce announced by Israel that was meant to open a "humanitarian window" for aid. However, the Israeli military said the cease-fire, which was to start at 10 a.m. local time (3 a.m. EDT) would not apply to areas where troops were still operating and where they would respond to any attacks. The Islamic Jihad group - a close ally of Gaza´s militant Palestinian Hamas rulers - said its commander in the northern part of the strip, Daniel

Obama and Kerry behind one of most

The obsession by the Obama-Kerry administration with imposing a cease-fire on the warring parties in the Hamas-Israel war will go down in history as one of the most strategic mistakes in military history. Here is a fact the administration deliberately and maliciously ignored: In the history of modern warfare, no terrorist group has ever honored a cease-fire. Hamas has broken every cease-fire it ever said it would honor. Every single one. Even the Israel-Hamas 2012 cease fire, brokered by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was simply agreed to by Hamas to give it an opportunity to restock its military arsenal, pressure Israel

Torrential rain and mudslides shut down a Southern California town Sunday, leaving 500 children and adults trapped at a church camp. "Most roads are impassible due to mudflows" in Forest Falls, said San Bernardino Fire Capt. Kyle Hauducoeur. Even a local fire station had to be evacuated. Authorities have made contact with the Forest Home camp, where the 500 visitors were staying, and said everyone is safe -- but the camp was still trapped behind mudflow late Sunday night. Crews used bulldozers and other heavy equipment to try to reach the campers, Hauducoeur said. "There is no other way out



US Sent Latin Youth Undercover

WASHINGTON -- An Obama administration program secretly dispatched young Latin Americans to Cuba using the cover of health and civic programs to provoke political change, a clandestine operation that put those foreigners in danger even after a U.S. contractor was hauled away to a Cuban jail. Beginning as early as October 2009, a project overseen by the U.S. Agency for International Development sent Venezuelan, Costa Rican and Peruvian young people to Cuba in hopes of ginning up rebellion. The travelers worked undercover, often posing as tourists, and traveled around the island scouting for people they could turn into political activists. In one

Israel says it will unilaterally hold fire in most of the Gaza Strip on Monday to facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid and allow some of the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians displaced by an almost four-week-old war to go home. An Israeli defence official said the ceasefire, from 10am to 5pm (8am to 3pm BST), would apply everywhere but areas of the southern town of Rafah, where ground forces have intensified assaults after three soldiers died in a Hamas ambush there on Friday. The announcement follows unusually strong criticism from Washington at the apparent shelling of a UN-run shelter

Harland Sanders for his legendary chicken business and his secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices. Today, KFC, owned by Louisville-based Yum! Brands, serves more than 12 million customers each day in more than 115 countries and territories around the world. KFC operates more than 17,000 restaurants in the United States and internationally.

When I was a kid, I mean a little kid, my favorite nurse in my father’s office — he was a doctor — was Mrs. Mindus. I’m not sure how old she was or even how she spelled her name — I was about six and the year was 1950 — but she was a sweet woman and very welcoming to me when I visited the radiology office. She used to bring me crayons and a coloring book and sometimes candy as if I were her own child. The only other things I remember about her were that she spoke

Adm. William H. McRaven has a 37-year record of things he cannot talk about, in a realm where orders are orders. Rising from Navy SEALs member to commander of all United States Special Operations forces, the admiral — who directed the raid that killed Osama bin Laden — has worked almost exclusively on secret operations. He is about to move into a field where openness is prized, every issue is publicly argued into the ground, but as for following orders, that is emphatically not its hallmark. The regents of the University of Texas system said last week that Admiral McRaven

WASHINGTON -- The United States will announce nearly $1 billion in business deals, increase funding for peacekeeping and commit billions of dollars to expanding food and power programs in Africa during a summit this week, U.S. and development officials say. U.S. officials said the Aug. 4-6 summit in Washington of nearly 50 African leaders hopes to showcase U.S. interest in the fast-growing region through a series of government-private partnership deals to boost trade and investment. The spread of the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone is also a reminder of the vast development needs that persist in

GOP sees signs of Jewish voters

Republicans believe that the deepening crisis in Gaza could ultimately loosen the grip that the Democratic Party has traditionally held upon American Jewish voters. While declarations of a rift between Democrats and the Jewish community have proven premature in the past, things could be different this time, they assert. Just in the last week, the Obama administration used unusually strong language to condemn the shelling of a United Nations-run school in Gaza, apparently by the Israeli military, and drafted a document for a cease-fire that Israeli officials denounced as favoring Hamas. Conservatives say the overall stance of the administration has created an

The real six-year itch in American politics appears to be talk of removing the commander in chief, with President Obama becoming the latest in a long line of leaders to face calls for impeachment during his later years in office. Then-President Clinton was impeached in his sixth year, and the calls to oust President George W. Bush, while they never reached that far, also ramped up in his sixth year in office. Impeachment calls stretch deep into the 1800s, and everyone from Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon faced them. But presidential historians and

The al Qaeda offshoot terrorizing Iraq is in the process of consolidating territorial gains and increasing the target list in Baghdad, a U.S. official and defense analysts say. But at this point, the Islamic State army of Sunni extremists does not have the capacity to take Baghdad, where a huge Shiite population and stiffer Iraqi forces defend the capital. “[The Islamic State] is solidifying its control in Sunni areas of Iraq and Syria,” said a U.S. intelligence official. “They attack or entrench themselves in towns and military bases near key facilitation routes that connect population hubs they now control such

It’s a widely accepted idea that Republicans are sitting on a demographic time bomb: The GOP is getting whiter and whiter in terms of the voters it attracts even as the country is growing increasingly diverse. Marisa Abrajano, an associate professor of political science at the University of California at San Diego, doesn’t dispute that basic notion in a new study of the electorate. But she does suggest that the time bomb may well have a very long fuse — and that in the time before it explodes, Republicans could actually benefit electorally from a consolidation of the white vote.

RAFAH, Gaza Strip — As Israel showed signs of scaling back its ground offensive in Gaza, its war from the skies continued Sunday, as an airstrike outside a U.N. school in southern Gaza killed at least 10 people. The bloodshed sparked some of the harshest U.S. criticism of Israel since the war began. Capt. Eytan Buchman, a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces, said the targets of the attack in the border city of Rafah were three Palestinian militants riding past the school on a motorcycle. “We identified a successful hit on the target,” Buchman said. “We definitely don’t target
