It is one of the hottest gigs in daytime television. And MailOnline can reveal that producers of The View will surprise audiences next season, when they replace departing hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd with two relative unknowns. Political commentator Nicolle Wallace and October Gonzalez (wife of NFL star Tony) are expected to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O´Donnell in September. Wallace, 42, is a novelist and political commentator who has appeared as a guest on the show. The former communications chief to George W. Bush, she will fill its ´conservative´ hot seat vacated by Jenny McCarthy. She is married

Sean Hannity has been on fire during the Gaza war, especially on his syndicated radio show. He understands what is happening and wants to make sure that his audience understands. This week he has taken his radio and FOX News cable shows to Israel. Yesterday he concluded his visit to Israel on a high note, with an interview of Benjamin Netanyahu. (snip) Quotable quote: “For the Islamist radical groups, remember, we’re the small Satan; you’re the great Satan. You’re ultimately the target. They attack us because they believe that we are you and that you are us…and in one sense

A British family on holiday in France ‘could have died’ after thieves piped gas from a car exhaust into their camper van to knock them unconscious before robbing them. Linda Chadwick and five members of her family had stopped for the night near Bourges when robbers broke into the vehicle and stole a suitcase, mobile phones, jewellery and £1,900 in cash. (Snip) The couple said they felt ‘violated and shaken’ but made a full recovery. Local police suspect they were gassed after receiving reports of Eastern European gangs preying on holidaymakers in the same way. Linda said the police dealing

The embattled chairman of the Passaic City Housing Authority, a man with deep ties to the community who now faces cocaine distribution and weapons charges, resigned Thursday as head of the agency, city officials said. Darien Allen submitted his resignation to the Housing Authority’s executive director, Victor Cirilo, who then sent a copy to the municipal clerk’s office, city spokesman Keith Furlong said. (Snip) Allen, 44, was arrested Tuesday night after police searched his Pennington Avenue home and said they found 40 grams of cocaine and a 9mm handgun, along with various drug-packaging materials.

Minor news stories with only a local direct interest nonetheless can carry large general implications, and just such a recent item emerged last weekend: Residents of Toledo, Ohio were warned not to use city water supplies due to algae growth in Lake Erie. (After a few days, the water was declared safe to drink.) For those few days, unsurprisingly, the demand and market prices for bottled water increased sharply, and few politicians can resist such opportunities for demagoguery: “Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is dispatching employees to the city to investigate complaints of price-gouging on bottled water.” “Price gouging” is

LITITZ, Pa.—This town of 9,400 people in Amish country tells the story of the modern concert industry. In 1968, when Frankie Valli and his group rolled in for a show, two young brothers who did sound for local dances turned the Four Seasons into one of the first music acts to tour with its own speaker system. The brothers built a reputation on the road, but they never moved out of Lititz. Their company became an anchor for a cluster of businesses that now supply the sound and spectacle for many of the world´s biggest acts. The effect that lets pop-star

Three years after US President Barack Obama turned his back on Iraq by ordering the withdrawal of American troops, he now finds himself having to order military intervention against an Iraqi foe that is infinitely more lethal than anything American forces encountered during their troubled campaign in the aftermath of Saddam Hussein´s overthrow. [Snip] I thought this was a pretty lame excuse at the time--Washington could easily have got a deal if it really wanted one--and now we are reaping the appalling consequences of that decision in the form of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis), which is

God bless America. Following the announcement last night by Barack Obama that the United States is about to resume military operations in Iraq, it appears the Yazidi will not now be killed with their families. There is also hope that Iraq’s other minorities may face some form of protection from their persecutors. It’s an announcement that won’t be welcomed by everyone. The old charges of US adventurism and imperialism will be trotted out. And with some historic justification. Iraq is after all the scene of the United States most catastrophic foreign policy misjudgement. “It’s not the job of the US to act

A high-speed train wreck for
Obama and liberalism

Few of President Obama´s initiatives are more emblematic of his early ambitions to be a transformational liberal leader than his vision for connecting the nation with a vast high-speed rail network. The dream of building a system of bullet trains in the United States akin to what exists in Europe involves massive and sustained government spending, more money for unions, and promises to move the nation away from car-based transportation. Thus, it represents everything that excites American liberals. Obama’s February 2009 economic stimulus package committed $8 billion to 79 projects spanning 31 states that were to lay the groundwork for “13 new,

World stock markets dropped as nervous investors pulled money out amid an intensification of geopolitical crises surrounding Ukraine and Iraq. US President Barack Obama authorised airstrikes on the Islamic State jihadists in Iraq and Russia hit back against the West´s sanctions over its activity in Ukraine with its own. Japan´s Nikkei 225 lost almost 3% after Obama´s speech and Russia´s sanctions on the West, while the FTSE 100 had been clipped of 0.58% in the first few hours of trading.

This morning on New Day, Newt Gingrich came on to discuss Barack Obama‘s proposal to combat ISIS in Iraq — and, judging by his response, thinks that Obama isn’t recognizing that this is a problem of “radical Islam.” “Nobody wants to tell the truth,” he complained. “The truth is this is a radical Islamist group. They say openly if you don’t convert, we’ll kill you. It turns out they actually mean it. There’s no complexity…The president couldn’t even honestly describe ISIS last night because it goes against his ideology.” And, just to be clear, that ideology is that ISIS “has a very

I’m grateful to Greg Sargent for conducting this probing interview with John Sandweg, who served as a Department of Homeland Security counsel during the crafting of the Obama administration’s 2012 deferred action program for illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States as minors. Here is Sandweg explaining the legal justification for that program, and (by extension) for the course the White House is currently considering, which could extend the same provisional legalization to up to half the illegal-alien population: [Immigration] officers have always exercised discretion, and always implemented priorities in terms of picking and choosing which types of cases to

On the day that sired the flames that came to consume his presidency, Richard Nixon stirred slowly and didn’t sit for breakfast until after 8 a.m. The White House was filled with relatives and friends that Sunday morning. They had gathered for his daughter Tricia’s wedding, which had taken place the previous evening among the blossoms in the misty Rose Garden (and amid anxious consultations with Air Force meteorologists). The affair was “a fairyland” to rival Christmas, an enchanted Rose Mary Woods, Nixon’s longtime secretary, told him. Nixon and his family rifled through the newspaper coverage of the ceremony.

Imagine if Republicans had responded to the push for Obamacare in 2009 by embracing the need for “comprehensive health care reform” while acceding to all Democrat premises concerning the foundations of health care policy. Ponder for a moment where we would be politically if Republicans had spent the past five years promoting Obamacare and targeting the GOP´s own members with millions of dollars’ worth of ads beckoning conservatives to support Obama’s signature legislation. Well, that is exactly what Republicans have done with the immigration debate. Immediately following Mitt Romney’s defeat in 2012, the entire GOP consultant class fabricated a narrative that

BEIRUT -- The U.S. embassy in Beirut took to social media Wednesday to deny claims that the United States created and condones the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Media reports in Lebanon have claimed that in former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s memoir Hard Choices, she "admitted in her book that the United States created the Islamic States and planned on acknowledging its presence." Clinton´s book has no reference of any kind to U.S. involvement in the creation of ISIS or plans to recognize it as a legitimate organization. The media reports said that the United

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans to lead a delegation of officials to Mexico next month, aides said Thursday. But the Republican’s trip has nothing to do with the border crisis on the southern border. The purpose, an aide said, is to “promote increased trade, economic growth, job creation and higher education in both New Jersey and Mexico through enhanced relations.” “Governor Christie will meet with various Mexican business leaders, tour local companies and visit with dignitaries and government officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto,” the Christie aide said.

In the wake of the June 24 primary runoff election in Mississippi, state Sen. Chris McDaniel´s staff found the numbers in Lafayette County – home of the cabin which incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran has sometimes listed as his primary address – just didn´t add up. “We decided to check the machine tapes that were printed out of every machine at 7 p.m. when the polls closed,” said Stephen Furney, a McDaniel campaign volunteer who helped in the election review process and signed an affidavit documenting what he saw in Lafayette County. “The Lafayette County circuit clerk gave us a total for the

The number of Americans renouncing their U.S. citizenship remains near a record high, ahead of new rules being introduced to clamp down on tax evaders. In the first half of the year, 1,577 Americans gave up their nationalities at U.S. embassies across the world, according to Federal Register data. This was only the second time the figures have been more than 1,500 since records began in 1998. Harsher asset-disclosure rules came into effect on July 1, under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (Fatca), meaning that foreign banks such as those in Switzerland are turning over data on their American clients

Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.” “We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he added. The

Barack Obama today authorised US airstrikes in northern Iraq to defend hundreds of thousands of non-Muslims being hunted down and slaughtered by ISIS hoards as he declared: ´America is coming to help.´ His dramatic call to arms came as the chaos engulfing Iraq escalated rapidly last night with a re-energised Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant storming towns in the north, executing villagers and chasing thousands from their homes into the desert. Already dozens of Yazidis--who ISIS have denounced as devil-worshippers because of their ancient set of beliefs which predate Christianity and Islam--have been murdered as the extremist fighters overran the

A 4-year-old Indonesian girl who had been swept from her parents´ grasp during the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami has apparently been found alive and reunited with her family. Raudhatul Jannah, now 14 years old, was miraculously spotted by her uncle in June after she was long given up for dead by her heartbroken parents following the Dec. 26, 2004, catastrophe, reported AFP. "God has given us a miracle," her overjoyed mother, Jamaliah, told the news agency from her home in Meulaboh, the former capital of West Aceh Regency.

Condemnation of Israel for its conduct of Operation Protective Edge in Gaza continues unabated. The chief accusation, heard time and again, is that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have either been cavalier about civilian casualties or are intentionally inflicting them. Israel and its defenders, for their part, have been at pains to point out the great lengths the IDF has gone to avoid injuring civilians, while at the same time noting the innumerable ways in which Hamas has violated the laws of war. The debate over these matters has been almost as intense as the fighting itself. All too often,

Exiting The View co-host Jenny McCarthy said goodbye to the show today with Whoopi Goldberg noticeably MIA — that’s because, while the episode was in progress, Goldberg was over on the set of The Chew, chemistry testing a crop of contenders to replace McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd on the show next season. That testing, which also included returning host Rosie O’Donnell, ran from about 9 AM to noon in front of an audience of about 50. Related: Sherri Shepherd Exiting ‘The View’ — Et Tu, Jenny McCarthy?

The new U.S. military mission in Iraq:

President Obama said Thursday night that he has authorized two new, major actions by the U.S. military in Iraq: airstrikes against militants with the Islamic State if U.S. interests or personnel are threatened, and humanitarian assistance for thousands of civilians who have fled the Islamist advance in northwest Iraq and are now trapped on a mountain. Even those two specific missions are more complicated than that, however. First, the U.S. humanitarian mission on Mount Sinjar began Thursday with airdrops by military aircraft, but it could require targeted airstrikes in order to “break the siege” at the base of the mountain and
