Since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, the nation and the world have witnessed the unrest that has gripped Ferguson, Mo. At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system. At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn — in a fair and thorough manner — exactly what happened. Today, I will be in Ferguson to be briefed on the federal civil rights

AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry was greeted by cheers and chants as he approached the Travis County courthouse Tuesday before heading in to be booked on the felony indictment alleging he abused his power. “I´m here today because I believe in the rule of law. I´m here today because I did the right thing. I´m going to enter this courthouse with my head held, high knowing that the actions that I took were not only lawful and legal but right,” Perry said. One in the crowd shouted, “We love you.” The case stems from Perry´s threat last year to veto

The 14 craziest McDonald’s

On a recent road trip through New Mexico, I decided to stop in Roswell. I’ve always been curious about the UFO and alien conspiracy theories that made this tiny desert town famous. I figured that the only attraction worth visiting would be its kitschy International UFO Museum. Turns out I was wrong. Something else pretty “out of this world” captured my attention. And no, it wasn’t an extraterrestrial sighting. It was the local McDonald’s. It’s the only one in the world designed like a UFO. This got me wondering: What other bizarre McDonald’s locations exist around the world? In its quest for global fast-food domination, McDonald’s has opened

Beckley, WV - Mitt Romney said Tuesday that the problems inflicted by President Obama’s policies are even worse than he predicted during the 2012 presidential campaign. “It’s been a good deal worse than even I expected,” Mr. Romney told reporters after headlining a rally here for Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. “I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” he said. “But the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.” Mr. Romney, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican

The video, uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, includes about a minute and a half of President Obama announcing his recent authorization of targeted airstrikes and a humanitarian operation in Iraq. Around the two minute mark, a man believed to be James Wright Foley, 40, delivers a statement: “I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers: the U.S. government.” He then addresses his brother John, a member of the U.S. Air Force, at length. After about two minutes and 20 seconds, he is beheaded. Two people who know Foley said the man in the video appears to be him, and that the voice sounds like his.

Reverend Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said ISIS jihadists are crucifying and beheading Christians in Iraq and Syria--“people are dying for their faith”--and added that he has heard of “incidences where entire families have been buried alive because they refused to convert to Islam.” Franklin Graham, son of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, said he was also aware of some Muslims who who were fleeing from the bloodthirsty ISIS, stressing that they do not want to see or live under the brutal sharia policies the jihadists were

ObamaCare tax not

A government audit says an "ObamaCare" tax on medical devices is falling short of its revenue target because thousands of companies aren´t paying it. The audit by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration says the Internal Revenue Service needs to do a better job policing the tax. To help pay for President Barack Obama´s health law, Congress enacted a 2.3 percent tax on the sale of medical devices used chiefly by doctors and hospitals, such as pacemakers and CT scan machines. The tax took effect in January 2013. For the first six months of that year, the IRS estimated it would collect $1.2 billion from the tax.

Obama heads back to vacation
after unexplained DC trip

President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place. Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the president receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon. Administration officials have insisted for weeks that the president just wanted to return to the White House for a series of meetings, but the explanation was met with a healthy dose

Accused terrorists being held in a Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba have cost the federal government roughly $300,000 for liquid nutritional supplements due to hunger strikes. Since March of 2013, 161,352 cans of liquid supplements have been purchased, which included $142,345 worth of vanilla Ensure, VICE News reported Monday. Documentation was provided to the news outlet after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit was filed against the Department of Defense. “The transaction reports are especially noteworthy because they show that the purchases were made during a time when military officials were

Politics: Now that the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry is coming up as the mother of all nothingburgers, and even Democrats are steering clear, it´s time to look at those behind this scam: George Soros-funded front groups. Friday´s news erupted with a Texas-sized gusher of political mud — Gov. Perry indicted on two felony counts of corruption and abuse of office! And it was all over his decision to defund a "public integrity office" run by a convicted drunk whose failure to resign left an office unable to straighten itself out. With the news breaking late at week´s end, the governor´s

Liberia´s armed forces have reportedly been given orders to shoot people trying to illegally cross the border from neighbouring Sierra Leone, which was closed to stem the spread of Ebola. Soldiers stationed in Bomi and Grand Cape Mount counties, which border Sierra Leone, were to ´shoot on sight´ any person trying to cross the border, said deputy chief of staff, Colonel Eric Dennis, according to local newspaper the Daily Observer. The order comes after border officials reported people continued to cross the porous border illegally. Grand Cape Mount county had 35 known ´illegal entry points,´ according to immigration commander Colonel Samuel Mulbah. Illegal crossings

If you´ve been lucky enough to enjoy a vacation this summer, you´ve most likely handed your photo ID over to a TSA agent (or your own country´s equivalent). But according to a study published Monday in PLOS ONE, endless practice hasn´t turned them into human passport-scanning machines. In fact, the people responsible for checking photo identification all day might not be any better at recognizing a mismatched face than you are. (Snip) When the officers compared photos to live people, they let fraudulent photos through 14 percent of the time. When asked to decide if multiple photos truly showed one person at different ages

HOUSTON, Texas -- Late last week Mexico´s foreign ministry vocalized strong opposition to the presence of the National Guard at the Texas-Mexico border amid the current border crisis. A statement from the foreign ministry reportedly said that Mexico "reiterates, in a firm and categorical way, its rejection of this measure. No circumstance at all or change in border security exists that justifies this measure taken by the state." The statement further asserted that the National Guard´s being at the border "does not contribute in any way to solving the immigration problem," according to the AFP.

A New York church has dropped its proposal to temporarily house roughly 40 juvenile immigrants who have entered into the United States from Mexico, citing a missed deadline for the federally-funded program and a looming change in leadership. Rev. Marc Herbst, an assistant to the bishop of the Metropolitan New York Synod-Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, told FoxNews.com that Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Commack has abandoned its plan to house the children for roughly 10-day stays. “At this point, it just doesn’t look like this is going to be feasible,” Herbst said Tuesday. “At this point, it’s not appropriate

Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol, who is in charge of the law enforcement efforts in Ferguson, said this morning that those arrested mainly had come from out of town. "As I´ve said, many are a criminal element that have been coming to Ferguson and are not from this area. Tonight some of those arrested came from

The Department of Justice has 40 FBI agents canvassing Ferguson, Missouri to learn whether a white police officer should be charged with a ´civil rights´ crime for shooting an unarmed black teen, the agency confirmed on Tuesday. [Snip] The DOJ is conducting interviews with an eye toward determining if a federal case will be made of the shooting, regardless of whether the state of Missouri charges Wilson with murder or manslaughter. It´s conceivable that he might not be charged for killing the teen, but still face a trial in federal court for violating his civil rights.

CNN International anchor Rosemary Church wondered why the Ferguson police department aren’t using water cannons instead of indiscriminate tear gas on protesters and rioters — prompting an incredulous look from her co-anchor, who was clearly more aware of America’s history of race relations. Church made the comments in the early hours of Tuesday morning, as police battled armed rioters with clouds of tear gas and volleys of rubber bullets and stun grenades. “Why are they using this strategy?” she asked. “Why the use of tear gas, stun grenades? Why not perhaps use water cannon? At least it’s not going to
