Nearly 240 years ago, a group of riflemen grabbed their muskets and left their families to stand against oppression and win the United States’ freedom, Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, III Corps and Fort Hood commander, told a group gathered Thursday at Military Plaza in downtown Killeen. On Saturday, the Army will celebrate its 239th birthday, and hundreds of local residents filled the streets for an early celebration with dignitaries from Killeen, Fort Hood and surrounding communities. “Through it all, the American Army has never wavered, not once. We’ve always answered the call of the colors, and many have fallen in

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — With an unusual assist from African-American voters and other Democrats who feared his opponent, Senator Thad Cochran on Tuesday beat back a spirited challenge from State Senator Chris McDaniel, triumphing in a Republican runoff and defeating the Tea Party in the state where the movement’s hopes were bright. “We all have a right to be proud of our state tonight,” Mr. Cochran said at his victory party in Jackson, Miss. “This is your victory.” Mr. McDaniel, speaking in Hattiesburg, was angry, and he did not hesitate to say so. “There is something a bit strange, there is

HATTIESBURG, Mississippi — Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) survived the most intense challenge he’s ever faced in his 41-year political career, winning a runoff against conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel. The Associated Press called the race for Cochran, who is up 6,880 votes with 99.9 percent of precincts reporting. A source close to McDaniel told Breitbart News that he is considering legal challenges over ballots. Democrats who voted for Cochran on Tuesday but voted three weeks ago in the Democratic primary in the state were not allowed to vote in Tuesday’s election. Election results indicate Cochran´s late appeal to Democratic voters

After previously saying America’s borders are more secure than ever, the White House on Tuesday seemingly blamed Republicans for apparent holes along the southern boundary, evidenced by the flood of unaccompanied children streaming into the U.S. from Mexico, Central America and elsewhere. White House press secretary Josh Earnest challenged Republicans, if they are truly concerned about border security, to back the comprehensive immigration reform package that passed the Senate last year and is strongly supported by President Obama. “If we really wanted to solve this problem, one good way to do it is for those Republicans to get on board

First Lady Michelle Obama will be back in Los Angeles on July 16 as the keynote speaker for the Grammy Museum´s first inaugural Jane Ortner Education Award Luncheon, which recognizes teachers who make an outstanding use of music in their classroom instruction. The award was created by the Grammy Museum in partnership with entertainment attorney Charles Ortner, in honor of his late wife, Jane Ortner, a New York elementary school teacher who understood the importance of using music education as a tool to inspire children to excel. The luncheon with the first lady will be hosted by Grammy Museum executive

State officials in Mississippi are warning groups backing state Sen. Chris McDaniel that their efforts to organize poll watchers for Tuesday´s runoff might be illegal. Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), the underdog in his primary runoff fight with McDaniel, has been pushing African-American and Democratic voters to turn out for him on Tuesday to try to expand his share of the vote. Under state law, Democrats who did not vote in the first primary round are allowed to vote in the GOP runoff, but conservatives backing McDaniel have argued the law prevents voters from supporting a candidate in the primary that

Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Tuesday predicted the United States would not make it out of the next decade without another terrorist attack, likely much bigger than 9/11. Cheney, who has made a similar warning a number of times before, said the threat might come from a nuclear device. "I think there will be another attack. And next time, I think it’s likely to be far deadlier than the last one," Cheney told radio host Hugh Hewitt. "You can just imagine what would happen if somebody could smuggle a nuclear device, put it in a shipping container, and drive

SAN FRANCISCO — Brian Goggin perched on the blue sofa that hung halfway off the roof. He looked down one last time on his guerrilla art masterpiece, "Defenestration," that had become one of the city´s unlikeliest icons. More than 17 years ago, Goggin and an army of artists had transformed the four-story, dilapidated building below him by attaching a menagerie of furniture to the sides, creating the illusion of objects being flung into the air. It was a physical manifestation of the word "defenestration," which means "a throwing of a person or thing out of a window." There was the

Former President Bill Clinton on Tuesday defended his wife’s modest depiction of the couple’s wealth, saying their affluence does not mean Hillary Rodham Clinton is out of touch with the concerns of average Americans. Speaking in Denver at an annual meeting of his philanthropic organization, Clinton said his wife was correct to state they were “dead broke” when the couple left the White House in 2000. “We were several million dollars in debt,” Clinton said, as Hillary Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea, looked on. The family’s wealth, which has grown enormously since the end of Clinton’s presidency, has become a political

Washington - The establishment wing of the Republican party will today mount a last-ditch effort to prevent the Tea Party from winning a major victory in a high-profile Senate race in Mississippi. Thad Cochran, Mississippi´s long-serving 76-year-old senator, is fighting for his political life against Chris McDaniel, a fiery Right-wing challenger backed by Sarah Palin. With polls showing Mr Cochran in danger of defeat, the Republican leadership has rushed money and reinforcements to Mississippi in a bid stave off another win for the conservative grassroots.

The filming of a TV series that took over the entire second floor of a Los Angeles VA center and conferences attended by VA health care providers—which included topics on how to plan a party—contributed to the delay of care for veterans, according to interviews with VA staffers and veterans. Dr. Roy Marokus, who currently serves in private practice, told the Free Beacon that veterans were denied care because of a mandatory conference he attended last March. Marokus said veterans’ appointments were cancelled so VA medical providers could attend the two-day conference. Medical providers at the VA Medical Center in

Republicans dropped a hammer on IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a testy hearing covering the disappearance of emails tied to the agency´s tea party targeting scandal. The emails, covering the period January 2009 to April 2011, belonged to embattled former official Lois Lerner and could shed light on whether an expansive scheme to single out conservative groups for special scrutiny was guided by members of Congress or administration officials outside the IRS. ´The committee requested all of Lois Lerner’s emails over a year ago,´ said House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa. ´And we subpoenaed the emails in August 2013 and

Noted management expert and Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen was apparently called out of retirement — like the Ted Williams of evasive, unapologetic bureaucrats — to destroy what is left of his agency’s credibility. At immediate issue is two years of subpoenaed e-mails from former IRS official Lois Lerner to outside agencies, lost in a convenient computer crash. The possible involvement of other agencies is one focus of a congressional investigation into the heightened IRS scrutiny of conservative nonprofit groups before the 2012 election. In recent congressional testimony, Koskinen admitted that the e-mails

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” the song goes. It is easy enough to spell, but for some vocal critics of President Barack Obama, it seems exceedingly hard to do. As the president moves toward the land of the lame ducks, his political enemies are calling for blood. That’s no shocker at this stage of a presidency. In this case, the cuts go deeper. For some, it is not enough to disagree. Some high-status public figures seem determined to demean, denigrate and ridicule the president of the United States. On June 12 the Speaker of the U.S. House stepped to a podium and insulted Obama for his handling of

There are times that I have senior moments and forget certain names and events but after the recent Obama Iraq war implosion, I´m convinced most political pundits are suffering from them as well. What is unusual is that this revision of history is being committed by conservatives who should know better. Recent commentary by Glenn Beck, George Will and Charles Krauthammer indicate that they have significant memory lapses about why we went to war in Iraq. They now suggest that it was a wrong decision whereas my complaint is that we took too long to invade and oust Saddam Hussein.

Women vote Democrat because they are smarter, Obama said to a White House audience Monday afternoon. He made the remark at the end of a talk at the White House Summit on Working Families. “Somebody asked: ‘Well, it’s well-known that women are more likely to vote for Democrats,’ to which I said, women are smarter,” Obama said. “This is true.” The rest of Obama’s talk centered on paid maternity leave, a minimum wage of $10.10, flexibility in the workplace, and access to childcare. He blamed Congress for moving slowly after he asked it to raise the minimum wage and when

With much of the Obama administration´s foreign policy in tatters, John Kerry is clear on at least one goal he hopes to achieve by the end of his time as secretary of state: having lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors representing the United States. In remarks to a GLIFAA (formerly Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) Pride event in the Ben Franklin Room at the State Department, the secretary ran through a litany of accomplishments by the Obama administration that benefit the "LGBT/gay community."

Krauthammer said that things are pretty bad, but noted, “There’s a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice. What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.” He continued, “We are in a position to dominate again, but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness, and he has chosen for America to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in places like Ukraine, basically to make us one nation among others.” Krauthammer said Obama is comfortable with

WASHINGTON- The bear isn´t just on the loose. He´s also hungry. In this case, the bear in question is President Barack Obama, who has lately been comparing his yearnings to escape the White House security bubble to an animal breaking free from his cage. And his objects of pursuit once out in the wild include a good burger, some casual Mexican and a nice cup of hot tea. On Monday, Obama rounded up a few participants at a White House working families summit for a short walk to a local Chipotle restaurant, where they swapped stories while enjoying the fast-food

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has had a rough time of it ever since she asserted that both she and her husband were “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House in 2001. “A few weeks before they left the White House, the Clintons were able to muster a cash down payment of $855,000 and secure a $1.995 million mortgage,” Politifact observed. “This hardly fits the common meaning of ‘dead broke.’” Clinton might have taken the public backlash over this minor gaffe in stride, but she didn’t.

Philanthropy is her true passion, Clinton said, and that´s why she permanently left Wall Street to join the Clinton Foundation, which she runs with her parents, former first couple Bill and Hillary Clinton. ´I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,´ Clinton told The Telegraph. ´That wasn’t the metric of success
