Rory McIlroy´s father Gerry is in line for a share of a £200,000 jackpot should the Northern Irishman capitalise on his six-shot lead and win the Open Championship on Sunday. McIlroy’s father placed a £100 bet 10 years ago that his son would win golf’s oldest major before the age of 26 and the 25-year-old is the overwhelming favourite to secure his third major title after a stunning finish to his third round, including two eagles in the last three holes. He has already won the US Open in 2011 and the PGA Championship in 2012, but McIlroy must claim

If Rory wins tomorrow, his caddy will get close to that.

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

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. "Don´t you hate when trailers give away the whole movie?" says Mrs. Obama, who has made healthy eating a major theme of her years as first lady. 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

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

Owner Attaches GoPro Camera

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:

Illinois is one of five states where small businesses will get an early start to the process of evaluating health insurance plans for next year as part of an effort by the federal government to test its systems prior to open enrollment. Small employers, agents and brokers in Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Delaware and New Jersey will be able to establish accounts on the Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP, starting in late October, three weeks earlier than the rest of the country.

President Barack Obama said that ISIS can be shrunk to “a manageable problem” if the international community works to “isolate” it on Wednesday. “If we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL´s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities, to the point where it is a manageable problem...what we´ve got to do is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world, along with the international community, to isolate this cancer,” Obama stated.

Congress is handcuffed in addressing the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) until President Obama details a strategy against the militant group, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday. Boehner said the United States could either eliminate the threat or continue to put U.S. lives at risk. "It’s his responsibility as the chief executive to outline a plan that will protect American interest, protect American lives both at home and abroad," Boehner said on Hugh Hewitt´s radio show. "And until the president is willing to lay out a plan, the Congress has very few options ahead

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

Economy: Time was, they had fact-checkers at the White House. They must´ve had the weekend off when President Obama let go a whopper at a Labor Day rally in Milwaukee. ´By almost every measure," he boasted, "the American economy and American workers are better off than when I took office." This must explain why nearly half of American workers believe the U.S. is still in a recession. Sure, the stock market´s done well and employment has picked up, but the most important indicator of their financial situation is whether take-home pay keeps pace with inflation.

Time for strategy from Obama
on how to deal with ISIS scourge

This time the dead hostage is a 31-year-old freelance journalist named Steven Sotloff, murdered by ISIS in front of the world the way James Foley was. This is a different sort of mass murder, in a world that grows more mad and more dangerous with every news cycle, one innocent at a time. This is a way of using hostages to hold us all hostage. So Foley dies the way he does and Steven Sotloff dies the same way, even after his mother begs the ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, for mercy, and humanity, as if you can somehow find

US president Barack Obama elaborated on America´s response to a second video showing a masked militant cutting the throat of a US captive, during a joint press conference hosted by the Estonian President this morning. The president said he had ordered about 350 more US troops to Baghdad to protect American diplomatic facilities and staff in the Iraqi capital. The move comes after terrorist group Islamic State (also known as Isil) released a second video showing a masked militant with a British accent cutting the throat of a US captive. Overnight, the US lawmakers offered plans to introduce legislation that would

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

One couple knows all too well the pain suffered by the parents of James Foley, the American journalist executed last month by the Islamic State. Billy and Karen Vaughn also lost their only-son Aaron Carson Vaughn in 2011, when the SEAL Team Six soldier´s Chinook helicopter was shown down over Afghanistan. Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

Dozens of public schools across the city failed to pass even a single black or Hispanic student on this year’s state math or reading exams, a new analysis shows.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

I just want a good deal for the workers." The president also discussed his "vision for an economy," where workers have a fair chance, retirement benefits, family leave and pay equality for woman.

Just resign already. Go. Be gone. Vamoose. Get out of our lives. More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed,

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

It took the Washington Post 2,017 words and 59 paragraphs in a feature about Dorian Johnson, who initially said that his friend Michael Brown was shot in the back, to reveal that the federal government´s autopsy also reportedly did not find that to be the case. As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

Mary Burke, who is battling to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, decided to steer clear of Obama’s visit to LaborFest, an annual salute to organized labor held in Milwaukee. She became the latest in a parade of Democrats in tight races who have tried to create space between themselves and a President with weak poll numbers.
