Stephen Fielder, the self-proclaimed pastor from Meridian, says a member of Chris McDaniel´s campaign paid him $2,000 to give an interview in which he accused a Thad Cochran campaign staffer of asking him to pay people to vote for the GOP incumbent. (Snip)However, Hood spokeswoman Jan Schaefer confirmed Monday evening that Fielder told investigators that it was Noel Fritsch who paid him for the interview. Additionally, a Democratic activist said two weeks ago that Fritsch contacted him about helping to find legal representation for Fielder. At the time, it was believed the FBI was talking to Fielder, but that has not

A member of the U.S. Army Band said he was forced out of the U.S. Army for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his personal car, serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party and reading books written by conservative authors like Sean Hannity, a federal lawsuit alleges. Master Sergeant Nathan Sommers, a 25-year veteran of the military and a decorated soloist in the U.S. Army Band Chorus, claims he was forcibly retired from the Army due to his religious and conservative political beliefs. I first told you about Sommers last year in a series of exclusive Fox News reports.

Dozens of government watchdogs are sounding the alarm that the Obama administration is stonewalling them, in what is being described as an unprecedented challenge to the agencies they´re supposed to oversee. Forty-seven of the government´s 73 independent watchdogs known as inspectors general voiced their complaints in a letter to congressional leaders this week. They accused several major agencies -- the Justice Department, the Peace Corps and the chemical safety board -- of imposing "serious limitations on access to records." The inspectors general are now appealing to Congress to help them do their jobs uncovering waste, fraud, and mismanagement.

The father of a missing 6-year-old girl in Washington State was previously charged with molesting a young family member, court documents reveal. But authorities say James Wright, whose daughter Jenise was last seen on Saturday night, is not a suspect in his daughter’s disappearance. Wright was charged with molesting an 8-year-old girl in 2000, but the charge was dropped after he pleaded guilty to a lesser assault charge, according to court records. Police won’t comment on that charge, and say both parents have been cooperative. The parents also took lie detector tests, although authorities won’t release the results to the public.(Snip) Jenise’s

Vice President Joseph R. Biden appealed to legal scholars and immigration advocates Wednesday to provide legal representation for thousands of illegal immigrant children in the U.S., saying the administration’s effort to handle a new surge of deportation cases “is going to be really hard.” “We need lawyers,” Mr. Biden said in a meeting at the White House. “This is going to be really hard. It was hard before. But this backlog [of cases] has continued to pile up.” About half of the more than 50,000 children from Central America who have immigrated illegally to the U.S. since last fall don’t

BAGHDAD — An Iraqi army airstrike targeting the Islamic State group that´s seized wide swaths of territory across the country´s north killed some 60 suspected militants Wednesday, state television reported. The report, which cited unnamed intelligence officials, could not be independently verified, nor did it say whether any civilians had been killed in the strike on the northern city of Mosul. The report said the strike freed about 300 people held by the Islamic State group at a downtown Mosul prison it had been using as a religious court and detention center, without elaborating. A Mosul resident, speaking on condition of anonymity fearing

An income cap

Concern about rising wealth and income inequality has generated all kinds of solutions, often focused on improving the lot of the people at the bottom with measures such as minimum wages. But instead of putting a floor on what people get, why not put a ceiling on how much they get to keep?(Snip)Suppose that people, after paying ordinary income taxes, would be allowed to keep up to, say, $500,000 of their income, then would be obliged to give away the rest to the charities of their choice or, if they like, to a charity of their own design and creation.

The GOP-led House Select Committee on the Benghazi terror attack shows no sign of backing down despite a report from another congressional panel that, according to a top Democrat, found no intelligence failures around the deadly 2012 assault. "There is more work to be done and more to be investigated," a spokeswoman for House Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told CNN on Wednesday. Shortly before beginning its August recess, the House Intelligence Committee, also led by Republicans, approved its report on the militant attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in eastern Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

The president, vice president and a former State Department official with the Obama administration took advantage of the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit this week in Washington, D.C., as an opportunity to advance the homosexual rights agenda. “Despite the focus and emphasis on these issues, the United States has remained committed to its principles of strengthening and promoting democratic institutions, encouraging good governance and accountability and also promoting good human rights, including respect for the LBG [lesbian, bisexual, gay] communities across Africa,” Johnnie Carson, former assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs under Hillary Clinton and senior adviser at the U.S. Institute

It doesn´t get much more cool and easy breezy than FLOTUS in a topknot. Seriously, if you looked up "summertime" in the dictionary, you´d see this picture of Michelle Obama in a bright yellow sundress and a chic updo. The first fady looked positively radiant in a gorgeous neon yellow chiffon dress by Prabal Gurung during the United States-Africa summit dinner Tuesday night. Obama is a known fan of the Nepalese designer, and we adore this vibrant and effortless look on her. She also often favors bright, bold colors—and this shade of electric lemon yellow? Perfection.

LOUISVILLE – Just three days after all looked lost, Tiger´s back is back, and he with it. The back spasms that he said caused him so much pain Sunday afternoon seemed to have disappeared Wednesday. Tiger Woods uneventfully, even blithely, hit a few dozen shots at the driving range as the gallery grew, then went out to the course, where he hit his first tee shot down the middle of the fairway. While he still appeared to have far from a perfect gait little more than four months after back surgery, he looked spry, and seemed thrilled to be back

Democrats throw kitchen sink at
Republicans ahead of midterms

Democrats are throwing the kitchen sink at Republicans in a bid to keep the Senate and erode the GOP’s House majority in November’s elections. While the Democrats’ official campaign strategy focuses wholly on the economy, education and women’s rights, party leaders have charged into the August recess with a much broader message that paints Republicans as too tough on immigrants, too easy on corporate election donors and too focused on toppling President Obama in lieu of helping the middle class. The wider emphasis could pay dividends in November’s midterms, as the Democrats are highlighting issues that tend to poll strongly

Obama’s monsters ball: How the White House

evil dictators and homophobes and turned
blind eye to their human rights record

President Barack Obama drew the diplomatic line somewhere at the first ever U.S-Africa summit at the White House this week by not inviting Zimbabwe’s brutal dictator Robert Mugabe. But the guest list still included several other African leaders with only slightly better human rights records. The White House promoted the summit as the largest-ever gathering of African leaders in the United States, with more than 50 countries represented. The red carpet was rolled out for Equatorial Guinea´s Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who shot or jailed virtually all his political opponents, Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh, who threatened to ‘cut off the head’ of any homosexuals

Death of a religion:

They are scared of lettuce. They abhor pumpkins. They practise maybe the oldest religion in the world. And now, after at least 6,000 years, they are finally being exterminated, even as I write this. If you haven’t noticed this epochal crime--the raping and the slaughter--you’re not alone. Of late, the world has focused on the horrors of Gaza. When we’ve had time to acknowledge the Satanic cruelties of Isis, in Iraq, we’ve looked to the barbaric treatment of women, and Christians. Yet the genocide of the Yezidi, by Isis, is as evil as anything going on right now in the Middle

Is Gardeners´ Question Time racist?

t is the softly spoken radio show that provides good-natured help and advice to thousands of gardeners every week. So regular listeners to Gardeners’ Question Time may be horrified to discover it has been accused of peddling racial stereotypes. According to an academic, the sedate Radio 4 panel show is riddled with "racial meanings" disguised as horticultural advice. One current presenter, Bob Flowerdew, rubbished the idea, calling it “ridiculous”, and asked whether experts on the show “should stop using Latin names to avoid offending the Romans”. But Dr Ben Pitcher, a senior lecturer in sociology at the University of Westminster,

Ladies and gentlemen, I suspect you’ll understand that my kind words for former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell rank among my biggest professional regrets. This is for several reasons, but preeminently, it appears the governor and his wife turned themselves into walking infomercials for the dietary supplements produced by one of the governor’s top donors. And they may very well have behaved in a manner you and I would consider… not quite sane: A day earlier, a onetime aide testified that after then-governor McDonnell endorsed Mitt Romney for president in 2012, McDonnell’s wife sought out the candidate at a news media

This isn’t new news. The ‘Rev’ has owed the IRS huge sums of money for years. Here’s a story from — cough – NBC News’ website in 2008 detailing the $1.5 million owed by Sharpton personally and his “business entities” at the time. At the end of 2011 (by which point Sharpton had been hired as a host on NBC’s cable “news” network) Sharpton’s unpaid tab had swelled to nearly $3 million. Three more years have since elapsed, so it’s time for an update (via the New York Post): The Rev. Al Sharpton, along with his nonprofit National Action Network

President Obama’s much-rumored executive order granting legal status to potentially millions of illegal immigrants will be “disastrous” to African-American job seekers and a slap in the fact to others proceeding through the tedious legal immigration process, charges a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Peter Kirsanow, a black commissioner on the eight-member panel, warned in a letter (below) to Obama this week that giving legal status to undocumented workers will pave the way for them to take the few jobs that blacks, especially African-American men, need. “I write to remind you of the disastrous effect of illegal immigration
