    ARLINGTON Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any players in his organization who disrespect the flag during the national anthem will not play in games. Jones is the first owner in the NFL to go on record about disciplining players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem. He didn’t specify kneeling or raising fists in the arm or other gestures made by players around the league. Jones made his strongest statements regarding the national anthem protests throughout the NFL after Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. “If there is anything disrespecting the flag, then we will not play....

    Steelers Center Maurkice Pouncey told reporters on Wednesday that the whole team will be on the sideline standing for the National Anthem this Sunday. Of course it took fans burning NFL gear, bombarding DirecTV and RedZone with phone calls demanding cancellation of football packages, sponsors backing out and loud boos from the stadium to get their attention. Pittsburgh CBS reported: After facing backlash about standing in the tunnel during the national anthem last Sunday, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey says the team will stand this Sunday. “I promise you one thing, this week we will all be standing out there for...

    Laughter may be the best medicine, but funnyman Al Franken needed something a bit more tragic to steer him off drugs. The "Saturday Night Live" veteran (and current U.S. senator from Minnesota) reveals in his new memoir that it wasn't until co-star John Belushi died that he realized the dangers of drugs and finally kicked his habit. Franken, 66, spent 15 years on the NBC sketch show, first as a writer, and then as a performer, and writes in his book "Al Franken, Giant of the Senate by Al Franken" that he at first only managed to get through the...

    Sony/ATV Music Publishing — which administers Queen’s catalog including songs such as “We Are the Champion” — said a statement Tuesday they have repeatedly asked Trump not to use the “We Are the Champions,” which he played Monday during the first day of the Republican National Convention. Last month, Queen guitarist Brian May also wrote a blog post protesting the use of the song by the Trump campaign. “Sony/ATV Music Publishing has never been asked by Mr. Trump, the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization for permission to use ‘We are the Champions’ by Queen. On behalf of the band,...

    A Republican senator told conservatives Friday they should pray for President Barack Obama and suggested a biblical passage that says, “Let his days be few.” Georgia Sen. David Perdue told a gathering of religious conservatives that “we need to be very specific about how we pray.” He suggested using (Psalm 109:8), which reads: “Let his days be few, and let another have his office.” As the audience at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s conference laughed and applauded, Perdue said, “In all seriousness, I believe that America is at a moment of crisis.” …

    In his op-ed in The Washington Post, Chris Grayling, leader of the House of Commons, made the case for British withdrawal from the European Union -- in terms Americans can understand. Would you accept, Grayling asks, an American Union of North and South America, its parliament sitting in Panama, with power to impose laws on the United States, and a high court whose decisions overruled those of the U.S. Supreme Court? Would you accept an American Union that granted all the peoples of Central and South America and Mexico the right to move to, work in, and live in any...

    ST. GEORGE, Utah — Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich walked back from comments he made during an interview on "Meet The Press," saying that that if he becomes president, he would not consider Merrick Garland, President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, as a potential replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. In a pre-taped interview on Saturday, NBC's Chuck Todd asked Kasich about whether the Senate should hold hearings on Obama's pick. Kasich noted that while he doesn't think Obama should have named a replacement in the first place, he stated that members of the Senate should show...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump disavowed white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke in a tweet Sunday. "As I stated at the press conference on Friday regarding David Duke- I disavow." Earlier Sunday morning, Trump avoided a question about whether he'd condemn Duke's racism. The GOP front-runner said on CNN's "State of the Union" he didn't know anything about Duke and would need to research his connections before deciding whether he would condemn them. "I have to look at the group. I don't know what group you're talking about," he said. "You wouldn't want me to...

    The race for the White House comes down to one simple question. Who do you want nominating justices to the highest court in the land -- a Johnny-come-lately conservative or a proven constitutional conservative? Now -- I want to say something to all you folks out there who profess to be good churchgoing Christians. You could have prevented this from happening. But you refused to vote for Mitt Romney. You said he was too liberal. You said he was a Mormon. So you stayed home -- and Barack Obama got re-elected. To paraphrase Bonhoeffer: not to vote is to vote....

    Donald Trump sought Sunday to walk back his statements during Saturday night's Republican debate that former President George W. Bush bore responsibility for the Sept. 11 terror attack. "I am not blaming him," Trump said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. Trump continued to imply Bush erred, however. "The CIA said there was a lot of information that something like that was going to happen," he said. The attacks killed just under 3,000 Americans. During Saturday night's debate, Trump told former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush: "The World Trade Center came down during your brother's reign, remember that." "How did he...

They're fraying so much that politically incorrect things are being said. Yvan Mayeur, the socialist mayor of Brussels, said the closure of the city’s restaurants, museums and shops, which is feared to have cost hundreds of millions of euros in lost trade, had been a “catastrophe”. "We cannot continue to live in these conditions. We will not live under the Islamic regime,” he said....

    RUSH: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm gonna get to Europe. We still have an hour and a half here. I can't do everything in the first segment or first hour. But things are changing dramatically in Europe. Whereas Angela Merkel said, "Come on in, 800,000 immigrants, migrants, refugees, this year, and 500,000 every year after that," guess what? The German people are saying, "Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah," because they're not happy about it. It's a bit of a disconnect there as well. Now German leaders are telling the migrants where they are going to have to live, and...

Bush’s administration. “The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming, and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy,” said Tyler Drumheller, a former CIA officer in Europe, in a 2006 interview with “60 Minutes.” He alleged that the White House “chose to ignore” information related to Iraq’s WMD program in the run-up to war that...

    A mother of six with an IQ of 70 should be sterilised for her own safety, the Court of Protection has ruled. The Court heard that a further pregnancy would be a "significantly life-threatening event" for both the mother and child. Mr Justice Cobb said the woman had the "same human rights" as everyone else and this was not a case of "eugenics". He has authorised health and council services to intervene and perform the sterilisation. The name of the woman has not been released, to protect the identify of her children.

    While the GOP is preoccupied with selecting a candidate to oppose incumbent Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama is working hard to erase her image as an "angry Black woman" and promote her husband's re-election campaign along the way. While she is hoping that a series of television appearances will cement the unmarried mom and single women's vote for her husband, she is also obviously trying to re-sculpt her image into that of a pro-America, pro-military and patriotic mom who is fun-loving and pleasant to be around. This last week, she has consistently been smiling and showing a positively treacly...

    By Greg Robb WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The Federal Reserve should hike interest rates from current range near zero to 2.5% within a year under a plan unveiled Friday by Charles Plosser, the president of the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank. Plosser did not give a specific time when this exit would begin but said it would have to start in the "not-too-distant future." In a speech to economists from the monetarist school on Friday, Plosser laid out an aggressive plan where the Fed would sell $125 billion of assets for each 25 basis point increase in the funds rate. A slower...

    In a move to counter the House Republicans’ planned vote to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law this week, the White House on Tuesday released data showing that half of all Americans under the age of 65 have pre-existing conditions and could be denied coverage if reform is weakened. Republicans quickly dismissed the study as a political stunt. The Department of Health and Human Services estimates that from 50 million to 129 million Americans have some type of pre-existing condition and would be protected by the Affordable Care Act when it takes full effect in 2014. Those numbers represent...
