  • 'I grabbed a chair and stopped the terrorist'

    Avi Assaf, who was wounded when a terrorist opened fire in a market in Petah Tikva Thursday afternoon, described to Arutz Sheva how he chased and subdued the terrorist despite his injuries. Six people were wounded in the terrorist attack. "I heard shots and people shouting 'terrorist! terrorist!' The terrorist ran and I chased him for 2-3 blocks with four other people," said Assaf, who is currently being treated at Belinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah. The terrorist entered a store for sewing machines, and Assaf followed him. "He took two screwdrivers and tried to stab me. I grabbed a chair...

    “Give a man a reputation as an early riser,” said Mark Twain, “and he can sleep ‘til noon.” Hillary Clinton finds herself in the opposite situation: She has a reputation for venality — the merits of which we can set aside momentarily — that forces her to a higher ethical standard. Her inadequate response to the conflicts of interest inherent in the Clinton Foundation show that she is not meeting that standard, and has not fully grasped the severity of her reputational problem. The purpose of the Clinton Foundation is to leverage Clinton fame into charitable donations. That purpose has...

Senate records show that The Podesta Group has lobbied the State Department on behalf of Uranium One — once in 2012, when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, and once in 2015. Uranium One paid The Podesta Group $40,000 to lobby the State Department, the Senate, the National...

    Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) rose from his seat on Tuesday during a congressional hearing into the Affordable Care Act’s problematic roll-out. He accused his Republican colleagues in the House of dishonestly seeking to identify the problems with the ACA because they would prefer to see it repealed entirely. Pascrell began by insisting that, even though Democrats opposed Medicare Part D in the Bush Era, they worked to make sure that the program was a success. He became animated as he said that Democrats put aside their opposition to Bush in order to make a policy objective work for the good...

    The term “cleaned his clock” took on a whole new meaning at Wednesday night’s first presidential debate. An energized and textbook perfect Mitt Romney dominated a lethargic and tired-looking Barack Obama. To sum up the former governor’s performance, he outhustled, outfacted, outenergized and outinformed the incumbent. The lopsidedness of the verbal brawl was not lost on liberal ideologues such as Bill Maher and Chris Matthews who were quick to raise the white flag in round one of three televised debates this month. It was as if Romney’s insomnia-inducing convention speech had never happened. The former governor commanded the stage focusing...

In his first interview since he attended the convention to pledge his support for Mitt Romney, Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone, a small California weekly newspaper, that his speech was not only unscripted, it was pretty much spontaneous. "There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down," Eastwood told the newspaper, which published the article...

    Debbie Wasserman-Schultz keeps the hits coming. There are two ways to approach chairmanship of the Republican and Democratic National Committees. The current RNC chair, Reince Priebus, avoids the spotlight and focuses on managerial tasks. His name has been added to the spelling-check libraries of ten thousand word processors, but the man himself remains enigmatic. The other approach is to enter the media arena as a full-contact political combatant, a kind of “super-candidate” who carries the banner of the entire party into rhetorical battle. Priebus’ predecessor, Michael Steele, played it that way. The results were… mixed. Steele’s high-profile stumbles during media...
