President Obama lashed out on Wednesday at the terrorists who beheaded a US journalist and pledged to stop the militants — and then he darted off to a Martha’a Vineyard golf course with some of his buddies. "A group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century,” Obama said, using the acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. He added that the international community should work together to “extract this cancer so that it does not spread.”

Following the grisly murder of an American journalist by extremist militants, one key question remains: How did ISIS abduct James Foley, who was widely considered to be in the custody of groups loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad? In the words of Mic politics editor Stefan Becket: "The prevailing assumption was that Foley was being held by pro-Assad forces, or by the regime itself. How did he get from there to ISIS?" The FBI believes an “organized gang" abducted Foley, who was working for GlobalPost, shortly after he left an internet café on Nov. 22, 2012. In May 2013, GlobalPost President Philip Balboni

American voters says they would prefer President Barack Obama work with Congress rather than use executive action to address the illegal immigration crisis at the border, according to a detailed new opinion poll on immigration, illegal immigrants, and the state of the American worker. The poll, conducted by veteran Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway, also found that Americans disapprove of Obama’s record on immigration. And as one Republican aide on Capitol Hill describes it, the results of the poll are an “utter repudiation” of the Senate’s Gang of 8 immigration bill. The survey of 1,001 likely voters found that 61 percent

The NFL has asked potential Super Bowl half-time acts to pay to perform at the coveted show next year, it has emerged. The league usually doesn´t pay the act, but this year, it has asked potential performers if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the NFL or offer another type of financial contribution, a source told the Wall Street Journal. The request reportedly did not go down well with the performers - which have been narrowed down to Rihanna, Katy Perry and Coldplay, according to the sources. The NFL usually pays for the halftime

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has called on Britain´s Prime Minister David Cameron to take a stand on the Islamic State and strip UK nationals who are fighting abroad of their citizenship and cancel passports using the little-known Foreign Enlistment Act of 1870. The move would bring the United Kingdom into line with close ally Australia, whose Prime Minister Tony Abbott has sworn “to do our damndest” to ensure “trained killer… returning Jihadists” would never be allowed to return to Australia. UKIP leader Farage said in a press release today that; “in choosing to quit the UK to fight abroad, [UK

CBS Sports broadcaster Phil Simms said Monday the he is considering not using the Redskins name when he calls the “Thursday Night Football” Redskins-Giants game on Sept. 25 because he is sensitive to complaints about the name.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has seen Bruce Springsteen perform more than 130 times and hugged him one glorious time (after a natural disaster), will put his fingers in his ears and scream la-la-la if you try to tell him his favorite human hates him. At a town hall yesterday, a woman dared to suggest that Springsteen had asked Christie to stop using his music at political events because of ideological differences (as far as we can tell, he has not). Little did she know that the governor and the Boss are on a first-name basis. “No. Never did that.

The terrorist group ISIS is actively outing agents from Middle Eastern intelligence services -- as many as 30 in the last two months -- by posting their pictures and locations on social media, a counterterrorism source told Fox News. In some cases, the source, who asked not to be identified due to the sensitivity of the investigations, said the Islamic State appeared to be getting the agents´ identities from Saudi sympathizers. "I wouldn´t be surprised if they had an effective counterintelligence operation going on as well,"said Bill Roggio, who has investigated ISIS for the Long War Journal. He added that

GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories: The armed wing of Hamas warned foreign airlines on Wednesday against flying into Tel Aviv, threatening to step up its six-week conflict with Israel and declaring truce talks in Cairo over. The warning came after Israeli warplanes pounded Gaza again Wednesday as furious mourners buried the wife and infant son of Hamas´s top military commander, baying for revenge as nine days of calm exploded into bloodshed. Mohammed Deif, who has topped Israel's most wanted list for more than a decade, escaped the assassination attempt, Hamas said.

The time for games is over. On Tuesday, America got a horrific wake-up call: Islamic State terrorists released a gruesome video that shows them beheading James Wright Foley, an American photojournalist held in Syria since 2012. The group also showed another US journalist held hostage, Steven Joel Sotloff, and threatened to murder him as well. “The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision,” declares the masked terrorist as he holds Sotloff by the neck. True, that puts President Obama in a difficult spot. But the president must do whatever it takes to counter this vicious savagery:

SAN FRANCISCO—The most famous court reporter in the country, Mark Kislingbury, calmly rested his hands on his keyboard. Around him, more than three dozen other stenographers also readied themselves for the 2014 national court-reporting championships, held last month in a hotel conference room here. The "Olympics of court reporting," as it is often called, kicked off with a speech, read at precisely 200 words a minute. The stenographers´ fingers began to fly. Onlookers, numbering fewer than the contestants, didn´t cheer. In fact, they were completely silent, though some made typing motions in a sort of "air court reporting" to see

A Brief History of President
Obama Not Having Any Friends

Once again, we´re reminded that President Obama is aloof and hasn´t made friends in Congress, even with his fellow Democrats, thanks to a new story from The New York Times. The Times story interviews several Democrats, including Sen. Harry Reid´s chief of staff, Sen. Joe Manchin and others, most of whom grumbled about wishing Obama would try harder to help them out. Obama´s aversion to schmoozing isn´t new, something The Times admits, writing "grumbling by lawmakers about a president is nothing unusual." But! What is striking now is the way prominent Democrats’ views of Mr. Obama’s shortcomings are spilling out

US President Barack Obama has said the beheading of US journalist James Foley is "an act of violence that shocks the conscience of the entire world". Mr Obama said the ideology of Islamic State (IS), the group which made a video of Mr Foley´s killing, was "bankrupt" and would ultimately fail. The group said Mr Foley´s killing was revenge for US air strikes on its fighters in Iraq. The US, the UN and other nations have expressed abhorrence at the video. Mr Foley´s mother Diane said he "gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people". The killer

Two recent interviews have been the topic of lively debate within the so-called “foreign-policy community.” First, President Obama told The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman that he envisioned a world in which wars end with “no victor, no vanquished.” Can you imagine Franklin Roosevelt or Winston Churchill embracing such an idea? Even more inconceivable: that those who proclaim themselves jihadis would do anything but laugh their heads off (you should excuse the expression) if they heard it. Next, Hillary Clinton told The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, “Great nations need organizing principles,” and that Mr. Obama’s motto, “Don’t do stupid stuff,” is “not

An elite group of around 500 sperm donors has been exposed as being the biological fathers to more than 6,200 children. The men have all been successful donors in at least ten separate cases since they made their donations. The records also show that 15 of these men are now the fathers to 20 or more children. The figures, released by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA,) cover donor insemination records held by clinics across the country. Before 2005, men who donated their sperm for fertility treatment could remain anonymous and their offspring were only entitled to get basic

The videotaped beheading of American journalist James Foley reveals both the barbarism and the weakness of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). The barbarism is obvious: how else would one describe the carefully choreographed and televised murder of this innocent reporter who had been kidnapped in Syria? This merely confirms what Army Colonel Joel Rayburn, one of the most astute observers of Iraq around, has previously said: that ISIS is a Middle East version of the Khmer Rouge. It is, in short, a death cult that will commit unimaginable crimes against humanity unless it is stopped. What of ISIS’s

President Obama condemned the beheading of journalist James Foley and ISIS in a strongly worded statement to reporters moments ago, but didn’t offer specifics on how the U.S. would react policy-wise to ISIS killing Americans. “Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group, ISIL. Jim was a journalist, a son, a brother, and a friend. He reported from difficult and dangerous places, bearing witness to the lives of people a world away,” Obama said from Martha’s Vineyard. “…Earlier today, I spoke to the Foleys and told them that we are all

EDGARTOWN, Mass.— President Barack Obama says the United States will continue to confront Islamic State extremists despite the brutal murder of journalist James Foley. Obama says the entire world is “appalled” by Foley’s killing. The president says he spoke Wednesday with Foley’s family and offered condolences.

Obama spoke Wednesday from Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, where he’s vacationing with his family, a day after the militants released a video showing the American journalist

Chalmers’ active participation in Democratic state politics is important because she claimed yesterday to the Houston Chronicle that her decision to indict Perry, a Republican, was not based on politics. “For me, it’s not a political decision,” Chalmers told the newspaper. “That’s what a grand jury is about – take the emotion out of it and look at the facts and make your

FERGUSON, Missouri—It´s not easy running a business with riots going on. In the ten days since Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Missouri, the small businesses that line the streets have suffered a major financial blow from the constant rioting, vandalism, and looting, owners said. Looters and vandals have smashed windows of store fronts, spray painted graffiti, stolen property, and burned down businesses. Some stores re-opened with plywood plugging up their smashed windows. The words “open for business” are often spray painted on the plywood, but many customers are too afraid to even come. One such sign for “Yolo! Botique”
