A Republican congressman who was confronted on the floor Friday night by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi over his immigration comments told Fox News that the former speaker was "visibly shaken" during the encounter -- but said he´s "not going to put up with this." Pelosi lashed out at Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., after he accused Democrats of neglecting the immigration issue when they controlled the White House and Congress in 2009 and 2010. She could be seen walking over to him and pointing her finger at him -- he later said Pelosi called him "insignificant." Speaking to Fox News on Monday, Marino

A Manhattan hospital patient with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms is being tested for the Ebola virus, officials said Monday. The unidentified male Mount Sinai patient recently traveled to an Ebola-afflicted West African country. He arrived at the emergency room Monday morning, has been placed in “strict isolation,” and is undergoing tests to figure out the cause of his symptoms. “All necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of all patients, visitors and staff. We will continue to work closely with federal, state and city health officials to address and monitor this case, keep the community informed and

On Thursday night, July 24, Xinran Ji was walking home from his study group meeting, four blocks from USC, where he was a graduate student in engineering. According to police, four teenagers, three boys and a girl, beat 24-year-old Ji with a baseball bat and a wrench. No reason. No connection. Ji managed to struggle back to his apartment, where his roommate found him the next morning, dead in a pool of blood that police traced back to the spot where he was attacked. I’ve taught at USC for 24 years. Two years after I arrived, the riots happened all

Monday marks the advent of Tisha B´Av, the Fast of the Ninth Day of the Hebrew month of Av, commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples and the subsequent exile of the Jewish people from their homeland. This year marks 1,946 years since the destruction of the Second Temple by Roman soldiers in 70 CE, who razed Jerusalem and murdered millions of Jews in order to solidify their rule over the Land of Israel. The Ninth of Av concludes a mourning period that commenced three weeks ago, on the Fast of the 17th of Tammuz, which marked the first

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem’s controversial open letter on the Israel-Palestine conflict has got them in some hot water – and one of Hollywood’s top CEOs is now weighing in. Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh became the first major Hollywood executive to offer his opinion to last week’s letter signed by the Spanish power couple that denounced Israel’s actions in the Gaza Strip as “genocide.” “It makes by blood boil,” Kavanaugh told The Hollywood Reporter. “As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, anyone calling it Israel ‘genocide’ vs. protecting themselves are either the most ignorant people about the situation, and shouldn’t be commenting,

Israel accepted an Egyptian cease-fire proposal on Monday night that is to go into effect Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. [Snip] They stressed that the ceasefire was unconditional and pointed out that its acceptance came after Israel finished destroying the terror tunnels. The officials said Israel was preparing for the possibility that Hamas would violate the cease-fire, as it has done in the past, and also cautioned the Israeli public to continue to be vigilant as Hamas could try to carry out a major attack for a final “victory picture” before the cease-fire goes into effect.

Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election. “Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling.

National Review columnist Lee Habeeb appeared on CNN´s dreadful morning program "New Day" Monday to lay out an articulate, intellectual, and ethical case for how recent news coverage of Israel´s war of self defense in Gaza has turned the American media into the public relations branch of the terror group Hamas. All CNN´s Kate Bolduan could do in response was to play dumb with attacks on straw men. This is a must-watch: (snip) KATE BOLDUAN: [Y]ou say Western media is enabling Hamas.

CNN is being sued by two EMTs who say a foreign correspondent for the cable news network bit them in a drunken rage outside the US Embassy in Baghdad. Arwa Damon, described by the cable network as a senior international correspondent, was intoxicated and abusive to a medical team stationed on the grounds of the embassy, where Damon did not have authority to be, according to the $2 million lawsuit filed in Manhattan on Monday. According to the lawsuit, Damon, 36, bit EMTs Tracy Lamar and Charles Simons before threatening them, saying she was a “major reporter for CNN.” The

(Live blog) 23:02 - Palestinian officials confirm truce at 8 a.m.: The Palestinian delegation to Cairo — which includes representatives of Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other factions — tells Egypt this evening that it accepts its offer for a 72-hour truce, beginning at 8 a.m. tomorrow, senior officials in the delegation tell The Times of Israel. The officials say the Egyptians have made it clear that Israel has agreed to the offer in principal. They note that the agreement began as a request for a 24-hour truce to allow the head of the Red Cross to visit the Strip, and was then expanded to 72 hours, with the option of a further extension.

It has been encouraging, even inspiring, to read and hear the loud and angry response in Israel — condemnatory across the board, from right to left — to the ludicrous ceasefire proposals that were floated this past week by John Kerry, United States Secretary of State, partly on his own and partly in consultation with two of the world’s most notorious generators of Israel-hate: Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and the leadership of Qatar. Erdogan had just accused Israel of barbarism worse than Hitler, and Qatar underwrites terrorism and murder all over the world, perhaps more than does any other financial center including Iran.

The Sunday pages of The New York Times ran a historical first for the long-running newspaper — a full-page advertisement for marijuana that wasn’t placed by an issue advocacy group. Rather, the ad came from the Leafly, a website and mobile phone app organization that simply rates marijuana dispensaries, Newsmax reported. “While we have run ads from marijuana advocacy organizations in the past, such as NORML [the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws], this may be the first non-advocacy ad that has run,” one newspaper spokesman told AdWeek. “But since we do not track advertisements by subject,

He said he specifically wants guidelines that prohibit drone

The military campaign in Gaza is continuing, and the only element coming to a conclusion right now is the action against the tunnels, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday. “The campaign will end only when quiet and security for a prolonged period of time is restored to Israeli citizens” he said, following security deliberations with Defense Minister Moshe Ya´alon and Chief of Gen Staff Lt.-Gen Benny Gantz at IDF Southern Command headquarters. Netanyahu, in his comments, made no mention of reports that US Secretary of State John Kerry was trying to broker another 72-hour cease fire. The last one he brokered,

WASHINGTON ­— After what was arguably his worst week since becoming the nation’s top diplomat, Secretary of State John Kerry has been conspicuously absent. The conflict in Gaza rages on, fresh off the violent collapse of a short-term cease-fire. I expected Kerry to be everywhere: making on-camera appearances, hitting the Sunday talk show circuit to detail U.S. efforts to try to bring at least a temporary stop to the violence in the region. But Kerry — rarely camera-shy — couldn’t be found. The job was left to President Obama himself and other White House officials. There were scheduling issues, of

Mitt Romney is again teaming up with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The 2012 GOP presidential nominee will join Mr. Christie for a fundraiser next month to benefit the New Jersey Republican Party, CNN reported. The Sept. 10 event in East Brunswick, New Jersey, is billed as a birthday party for Mr. Christie, who turns 52 next month, with Mr. Romney listed as a “special guest” on the invitations. Mr. Christie was a top surrogate for Mr. Romney during the 2012 presidential race, regularly leading rallies for the former Massachusetts governor.

TEHRAN, Iran — Hamas is able to fire missiles into Israel because Tehran provided weapons technology to the militant group to defend itself against Israeli attacks, a senior Iranian official said Monday. The Secretary of the Expediency Discernment Council, Mohsen Rezaei, was quoted by Al-Alam, the Arabic channel of Iran´s state TV, as also saying Hamas should also dig tunnels to be used as shelter to protect Gaza´s population from Israeli assaults. "Palestinian resistance missiles are the blessings of Iran´s transfer of technology. We need to transfer defensive and military technology to Palestinians so that they can build weapons under

Whoopi Goldberg on ABC’s The View Monday took aim at Donald Trump for tweets he put out recently that objected to Ebola-infected Americans returning to the U.S. Repeatedly referring to Trump as “a friend,” Goldberg said Trump’s tweets were “dopey,” “idiotic” and “stupid.” She rightly noted that Ebola is not transmissible through the air, but only exchanging bodily fluids. “Do your homework, Donald. Just do your homework. … Before you say something that dumb– you know better than that. Come on.” Trump sent out a series of tweets Friday protesting the return home of two Americans infected with Ebola overseas.

The White House’s emerging strategy for the midterm elections is to run against a “mean” Congress. President Obama has made that tack known more than ever in recent days. In the last week, he’s accused Republicans of getting into disagreements with themselves over the border supplemental funding and for not being able to pass “plain vanilla” legislation. He asked them to “stop hating” and “being mad all the time.” And he mocked House Republicans for suing him and added, “And I said to Speaker Boehner, tell your caucus the best way to avoid me acting on my own is work with me

One of the nation´s most prominent constitutional law professors emphasized that one of the biggest myths about impeachment is that it "must involve a violation of criminal law." After calling for President Barack Obama´s impeachment on the pages of Breitbart News for his lawlessness on illegal immigration, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said that more Americans, many of whom have been led to believe by politicians and the media that only criminal offenses are impeachable, would be in favor of it once they found out what impeachable offenses actually are.

The United States and most other industrialized countries have experienced a rapid increase in inequality since around the 1970s. Unsurprisingly, the discussion of inequality has become politicized. Some deny the increase in inequality entirely, in spite of overwhelming evidence. Others exaggerate the magnitude of inequality, for example by claiming that all income gains have gone to the rich. The estimates of income distribution by the Congressional Budget Office avoids several common methodological problems. The CBO adjusts for declining household size and uses a broader definition of income that includes pension and health care contributions by employers. Between 1979 and 2010
