A Democratic senator is planning to introduce legislation authorizing U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria, in a bid to ensure President Obama is not waiting on Congress to escalate the military campaign. When Congress returns next week, Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., says he plans to introduce a bill to "ensure there´s no question that the president has the legal authority he needs to use airstrikes in Syria." Nelson said in a statement: "Let there be no doubt, we must go after ISIS right away because the U.S. is the only one that can put together a coalition to

During a trip to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden had some stern words while vowing justice against the killers of Steven Sotloff, who was beheaded by ISIS militants. Earlier in the day, President Barack Obama said ´we will not be intimidated´ and on Tuesday, Sen. Mark Kirk said Obama should ´bomb the hell´ out of them. While speaking Wednesday, Biden also used strong language. “The American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand,” Biden said, according to Buzzfeed. “As a nation we are united and when people harm Americans

Austin - Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor, agreed to join GOP nominee Greg Abbott for a Sept. 30 televised statewide debate in Dallas hosted by KERA, The Dallas Morning News, Telemundo and NBC (Channel 5). It is the second of two debates scheduled. The announcement comes days after a prickly debate over debates erupted between the governor candidates. Last Friday, Abbott, the state’s attorney general, withdrew from a different debate scheduled on Sept. 30 hosted by WFAA-TV and the Texas Tribune citing an inability to agree on debate format, his campaign said. Later, the attorney general

Greg Abbott is the Texas Attorney General. He´s the frontrunner to be the next governor of Texas. (You might have heard of his opponent -- Wendy Davis.) Abbott is also a paraplegic, the result of an accident while he was jogging in his mid 20s. In Abbott´s new ad, produced by Erik Potholm and Paul Curcio, Abbott tells the story of how he adjusted to life in a wheelchair. (30-sec. Video) "After my accident, I had to rebuild my strength," says Abbott as he is shown rolling his wheelchair into an empty parking garage. "I would roll up an eight-story

France threw a highly contentious arms deal with Russia into doubt on Wednesday over the Ukraine crisis, saying that it was premature to schedule the delivery of a sophisticated French-built warship to the Russian Navy. A statement issued by President François Hollande’s office, reported by news agencies, said he had decided that despite a possible cease-fire in Ukraine between government forces and Russian-backed separatists, “the conditions for France to deliver the first warship are not to date in place.” France has been widely criticized over its plans to proceed with the $1.6 billion sale of two Mistral-class

Seven in 10 Americans says the country is on the wrong track and more than half disapprove of the job President Obama is doing, according to a new George Washington Battleground Poll. The poll conducted by Lake Research found just two in 10 people think the country is heading in the right direction, while about 9 percent are unsure. Among those who felt the U.S. is on the wrong track, the leading answer — 7.1 percent — was Mr. Obama’s lack of leadership, followed by a poor foreign policy and problems with Congress. Those who took a rosier view cited progress on health care — 21.3 percent — and then improvement in the

Now first lady Michelle Obama gets her turn on the comedy website "Funny or Die." Mrs. Obama makes a cameo in a faux movie trailer for a fake film called "Snackpocalypse," in which high school students become junk food zombies.

Mrs. Obama also says: "Can we just watch Frozen again?" Earlier this year, President Obama appeared on the "Funny or Die" talk show "Between Two Ferns," trading barbs with host Zach Galifianakis about

Islamic State leaders have published an statement online apologizing for leaking the Steven Sotloff execution video ahead of schedule. Vocativ reports that an Islamic State-affiliated twitter account, which is now suspended, published the video ahead of the prescribed time. The group then apologized to its followers for the lack of discipline in a text missive on JustPaste.it. “A clarification about the mistake was made by ‘Uyun al-Ummah’ account, that has published the video before the official time,” the group said, as translated by Vocativ. “The user saw a tweet with the video and thought it was published officially.

American Ebola survivor Nancy Writebol said Wednesday she followed “God’s call” to serve in Liberia and that a quick test meant to reassure everyone she did not have the deadly virus turned into a life-changing diagnosis. Mrs. Writebol, speaking publicly for the first time since her recovery in Atlanta and late-August release, said she never felt fear despite knowing she could die from the virus. “It’s going to be OK, it’s going to be OK,” she recalled saying during a press conference in Serving in Mission USA’s campus near Charlotte, N.C. “I had no clue what was going to happen. Of course I knew what the outcome could be.

Leave Obama Alone! Liberals
Actually Believe Obama Is the
First President to Be Publicly Criticized
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article

As the world burns, President Obama is taking criticism from all sides. Even Salon editor (and Free Beacon aficionado) Joan Walsh has conceded: “I’d probably have suggested not golfing after [Obama’s] moving statement on journalist James Foley’s execution.” Of course, most of this criticism is due to the prevalence of social media, but even so, Obama defenders have returned to one of their favorite arguments: Criticism of our current president is unprecedented; literally no one criticized the sitting president until 2009. (Cartoons) Did Franklin Roosevelt play a lot golf during his presidency? Franklin. Roosevelt. Whatever, don’t want to step on

There’s a new GoPro accessory called Fetch, a specialized harness that lets you attach a camera to your pets. And when one dog owner hooked up his pooch with the device, the result was nothing short of insane. It’s a bit disorienting to watch the video, because the dog (named Walter) runs so quickly. And literally, the exact second the camera is attached to Walter, it runs off, makes its way to the beach, and jumps in the water. You can watch the video below:

Republicans are launching an investigation into the cozy relationship between the Environmental Protection Agency and an environmental lobbying group that has allegedly played a major role in crafting recent global warming rules and stymieing an Alaska mining project. Louisiana Sen. David Vitter and California Rep. Darrell Issa sent a letter to the EPA and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) asking for records regarding the environmental group’s role in drafting a rule limiting carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, and blocking a permit for the Pebble Mine in Alaska. “It appears that NRDC’s unprecedented access to high-level EPA officials

A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday. Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States. Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.” “Employers cannot

On his Tuesday show, commentator Glenn Beck made the extraordinary prediction that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be elected president in the 2016 election. According to Beck, that prediction is based upon a conversation a “friend” of his had with so-called “Hillary people” about the strategy she will employ in the 2016 campaign. “They said, ‘The right is so stupid. They just don’t get it. You guys are going to all be fighting on Benghazi and everything else, and here’s what Hillary is going to do: ‘Do you remember when America was good? Do you remember when we

Seventeen-year-old Cristian stepped through the swinging wooden door separating the crowded waiting area from the judge’s bench, straightening his slightly-too-big dress shirt as he slid behind the defendant´s desk. As his lawyer took the seat beside him, Cristian slipped on the court-provided headphones so he could hear the Spanish-speaking translator as his lawyer began to speak. After a few pleasantries, Cristian’s lawyer told Immigration Judge John M. Bryant that his client conceded to the charge of being an undocumented alien in the United States and was subject to potential removal. Cristian wanted to plead for asylum for “protection from torture,” and
