    BUTTE — Police arrested retired Navy SEAL Rob O'Neill -- who is credited with shooting al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden -- for driving under the influence about 2:30 a.m. Friday, according to the Butte-Silver Bow County sheriff's department O'Neill was found sleeping in a 2005 Nissan Sentra at a Town Pump. The vehicle was running and the back-up lights were on, said Undersheriff George Skuletich. Officers woke him up by opening the car door. They said he appeared under the influence -- confused and somewhat lethargic. He failed a horizontal gaze test at the scene, and other related sobriety tests...

    According to multiple unnamed sources, Clinton has been confiding to close pals that Obama is "the worst President ever" and his presidency is a "sinking ship" that is "taking the Democratic party and the country down with him," and when Obama confronted him on the comments, Clinton looked him in the eye and said; "Yes, it's a fact." The Globe reports: "At that point, the source adds, Obama went ballistic and told the ex-Prez; 'Then you are a racist and no different than the rest of them.'"

    A former China-desk Army intelligence analyst and co-author of a new book about Chinese-American relations, told HUMAN EVENTS November 15 that the strange giant white lines drawn in western China's Gobi Desert were most likely practice targets for Chinese space weapons. “Usually when we think of space weaponry, we are talking about horizontal targeting by satellites firing on other satellites—to take your eyes out,” said William C.

    A school band teacher has been jailed for statutory rape after admitting having sex with a 16-year-old student. Devri Ann DePriest was recorded on tape confessing to the underage sex and sleeping with the High School student at least 20 times over a two month period.

    Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota has made a deal to publish her memoir, selling a book to Sentinel, a conservative imprint at Penguin Group USA, two people familiar with the negotiations said on Thursday. Ms. Bachmann, a Tea Party favorite who announced her presidential candidacy during the Republican debate on Monday, has been shopping her memoir for weeks, meeting with several New York publishers to discuss a possible deal. The book is tentatively expected to be released this fall. John Fund, a columnist for the Wall Street Journal, will assist with the writing of the book.

    Tick, tick, tick … and done. After eight seasons, Fox’s “24” is coming to an end. The groundbreaking action drama will air its final real-time episode in May, the victim of a confluence of circumstances: a swelling budget, declining ratings and creative fatigue. Yet for fans of Jack Bauer, there remains hope. Studio 20th TV is developing a theatrical film that takes Bauer to Europe, and showrunner and executive producer Howard Gordon says other possibilities are being explored as well. “There are other possible iterations of Jack Bauer and his world,” Gordon said (full Q&A with Gordon about series ending...

    DENVER , Jan. 13 (UPI) -- A Colorado man adulterated labels on bottles of Gatorade with photos of admitted adulterer Tiger Woods and his wife, federal authorities alleged Wednesday. The bottles, which were found on shelves of stores in Erie, Boulder, Longmont, and Broomfield, carried labels with images of the world's top golfer and his wife Elin Nordegren with the word "Unfaithful," officials said. Jason Eric Kay, 38, of Longmont was charged with misbranding and altering food labels with intent to seriously harm a person's business, the U.S. Attorney's Office and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a...

    Tonight on Hannity's radio show he gave an entire hour to Rudy Giuliani. This is at least the third time in recent weeks that he has pandered to this pro-abortion, pro-illegal alien, gun-grabbing liberal. In all of these segments on radio and TV, Hannity has never questioned Rudy's pathetic explanations for his liberalism. Hannity claims to be a conservative, but gets absolutely giddy over Rudy. I am beginning to wonder if Hannity's conservativism was just an act all along. Now and then Hannity will have short segments with Newt, but he has been doing that for years (and Newt is...

    A new poll on Thursday underscored deep Arab unhappiness with the United States but said the negative image could be repaired if Washington brokered a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace agreement. The survey of 3,850 people in six Arab countries rated President George W. Bush as the most disliked world leader, while the United States and Israel were viewed as significantly greater threats than Iran. The results show the Arab-Israeli conflict "remains the central prism through which people are evaluating the United States", even when the international focus is on the Iraq war and nuclear crisis with Iran, said Shibley Telhami of...

    On those rare occasions when insurance executive Tara Guizot wears a suit to her Los Angeles office, "people invariably ask me if I'm interviewing for a new job," she said. The trend toward casual dress has gone so far that Matt Smith, a 27-year-old Los Angeles lawyer, is on a quest to establish "Tie Tuesday." He would like to wear a suit to work but knows he'd be ridiculed. Instead, Smith dons a tie every Tuesday and hopes other men in his office will follow. So far, a couple have. "It's just something fun," he said. Forget casual Fridays. In...

The 44-year-old star was being filmed for a new TV program as he swam with a stingray on the Great Barrier Reef Monday when it lashed out with its tail, plunging a poisonous barb into his chest. He died within minutes. In the first public comments by Irwin's family since the tragedy, the elder Irwin, who started the wildlife park that his son turned...

    It is inevitable that the Democrats will secure additional congressional seats in November, if for no other reason than change, and change happens. At certain times in political history, the party in power loses, while those in the minority gain. Simple calculation. Of course, what is sometimes difficult to predict is when the change is going to happen, and by how much. Not many 'experts' predicted that in 1994 the out-of-power Republicans would take control of both houses of Congress, but the GOP did. In addition, very few would have predicted in 1998 that the Democrats - the same party...

    Is NASCAR negotiating with the Charlotte City Council? Are public officials sweetening the deal to lure the sport's hall of fame to uptown Charlotte? Could the city be promising annual subsidies for the hall? Only a few people know for sure, and they're not talking. The council spent two hours behind closed doors at the start of its Monday meeting, and an hour at the end -- perhaps talking about NASCAR, perhaps not. The council held a long closed session Feb. 13 and a rare closed session before the Feb. 20 zoning meeting. NASCAR sources said Sunday that Charlotte is...

    HOUSTON White non-Hispanics are no longer the majority in Texas -- for the first time since the 1800's. Today's Census Bureau survey says whites stopped being the majority in Texas as of last year. Also, the numbers show that Texas joined only Illinois and North Carolina in having a poverty rate that measurably increased -- while income decreased -- in 2002-03. Texas state demographer Steve Murdock says the two trends are related as economic woes have slowed white migration from other states.
