    A video of Silicon Valley princeling Gurbaksh Chahal assaulting his former girlfriend could finally land him in jail. The video is high quality, as might be expected of a surveillance camera in the penthouse bedroom of a high-tech princeling. The footage was so clear that San Francisco police were able to determine that Gurbaksh Chahal punched and kicked his girlfriend 117 times in 30 minutes. He also smothered her with a pillow for 20 seconds.

    One of the Orlando shooting survivors has admitted to locking an exit door, putting dozens of revelers' lives at risk during the massacre. The revelations about Luis Burbano's actions the night of the shooting have come to light after he gave an interview, saying he 'regrets' his second chance at life. When gunman Omar Mateen first started firing inside Orlando, Florida gay club Pulse around 2am on Sunday, Burbano says he dropped to the ground and then looked for an exit. Nearby, he saw people moving through a small 'employee's only' door hidden behind a curtain, and followed after. On...

    Intel CEO Brian Krzanich moved quickly Wednesday night to quell a firestorm of criticism he received after news leaked that he was holding a fundraiser at his home for presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The event, which was scheduled for Thursday evening, was abruptly cancelled on Wednesday afternoon after an inquiry from the New York Times. But that didn’t stop a host of negative articles questioning why the CEO of one of the largest tech companies—and one co-founded and run for decades by proud immigrant Andy Grove—would be backing Trump.

    Senior Hamas politburo official Mahmoud al-Zahar reignited the war of words between his terrorist organization and Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction, which have long been bitter rivals. Hamas and Fatah have remained violently divided despite the unity deal sealed by Abbas in April 2014 when he torpedoed the US-led peace talks. In recent days - even as Egypt is leading talks in Cairo to try and unify the Palestinian factions - al-Zahar upped the ante on Hamas-Fatah tensions by slamming Fatah founder and arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat for being a "coward" and fleeing a battle with Israel, before...

    It’s always a sad day when someone you admire tremendously, who has entertained and challenged you for years lets you down and reveals themselves to really stand up only for themselves instead of the ideas of freedom they claim to support. Reason Magazine highlights some deeply discouraging remarks from Penn Jillette, the libertarian co-host of the extraordinarily great Showtime show “Penn and Teller’s Bullsh*t”: Are there any groups you won’t go after? We haven’t tackled Scientology because Showtime doesn’t want us to. Maybe they have deals with individual Scientologists—I’m not sure. And we haven’t tackled Islam because we have families.

    WASHINGTON, March 17 (UPI) -- Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, held captive for five years by the Taliban, had a mental-health disorder marked by odd, eccentric behaviors and social isolation when he walked away from his post in Afghanistan in 2009, documents released by his defense team showed. An Army Sanity Board Evaluation in July 2015 found Bergdahl had schizotypal personality disorder, a psychiatric condition marked by unusual fears and beliefs, the inability to form interpersonal relationships and eccentric behaviors. The condition is different from schizophrenia, which is marked by hallucinations and a disconnect from reality.

Bergdahl, who was held by the Taliban for five years after he walked off a base, was arraigned during a short hearing on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, a relatively rare charge that carries the severe punishment.

Carson paused for moment, as if considering the logistics of constructing a 2,000-mile wall, before answering: "I think it can be done in a less than a year," he replied...

Kenneth Dahl testified Friday in Bergdahl’s case that he found the soldier “unrealistically idealistic” about other people, and remorseful for the massive search his actions caused. He left his platoon’s outpost, Observation Post Mest in Paktika province, with plans to run 19 miles to the larger...

Only 29 percent believe the president has been adequately aggressive. The poll, which was conducted between July 13 and 15, also indicates that Americans believe Obama has been too weak in his actions regarding Iran’s...

While other prominent Republicans hemmed and hawed, Haley was clear at her press conference Monday that the flag must come down. Defenders of the flag, meanwhile, largely remained...

After losing his $15-an-hour job fueling airliners in Minneapolis, the Somali-American father of nine survived on low-wage jobs and public assistance. He complained about working hard, but never having enough money. His circumstances worsened when he was ordered to pay more than $700 a month to support three of his children — including one less than a year old. Months later, he surfaced in Syria, where he went to fight for the Islamic State.

They secured his release by trading five high-ranking Taliban. People cheered his return until his fellow soldiers spoke out, calling him anything but a hero. There are rumors that the Coast Guard turned him down for psychiatric reasons, that he went AWOL while in basic training, that he left the base to go drinking with locals, and that he gave actionable intelligence to the enemy. Just recently the Army decided to charge him with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy....

"It's wrong politically because we'll be blamed for shutting down the department," said King (R-Seaford). "It's wrong morally because we are putting American lives at risk to satisfy a political imperative." That cliff -- the expiration of funds for DHS as of midnight Friday night -- was avoided with Congress' late action. But it was just hours away when 52 conservative Republicans and 172 Democrats voted...

    Toward the end of the romantic comedy film The American President, Michael Douglas’s President Shepherd tells the assembled press corps, “Being president of this country is entirely about character.” This 1995 movie was made as a way of rescuing the scurrilous character of Bill Clinton from accusations of womanizing. It’s a pleasant and entertaining film but this line of dialogue, like just about everything else in the picture, is untrue.

    Well, the diocese of Charlotte decided to throw Sister Jane Dominic Laurel under the bus after she had the temerity to teach basic Catholic doctrine in a school that hilariously calls itself Charlotte Catholic High School.

    NEW ORLEANS — Nearly six months after a federal judge appointed former FBI director Louis Freeh to investigate alleged misconduct inside the settlement program for compensating victims of BP’s 2010 Gulf oil spill, the targets of his inquiry are questioning his independence and trying to rebut his findings. Lionel “Tiger” Sutton III, a lawyer whose resignation from the staff of claims administrator Patrick Juneau spawned the investigation, urged U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier last week to throw out a scathing report that Freeh issued in September. The report concluded that top members of Juneau’s staff, including Sutton, engaged in conduct...

    Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and Susan Collins are doing their best to complicate everything and shill for K Street. I am actually surprised Paul Ryan could be diverted from amnesty long enough to ensure Obamacare is fully funded. But he has. The House should act very simply — pass a debt limit increase. Pass it so it goes through Christmas. There is no point trying to do negotiations over the holidays. Then let Harry Reid reject it. Harry Reid is banking on the media being in his pocket the whole time. And they are and will be right up until...

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry tells the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in Bali that Republican members of Congress are jeopardizing American foreign relations. After the ongoing government shutdown led President Barack Obama to back out of a long-planned summit in Indonesia, Secretary of State John Kerry, who went in Obama’s stead, took a hardline stance toward the partisan bickering in Washington. Kerry’s tone turned aggressive during a media appearance at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Bali on Saturday, launching a spirited attack on Republican members of Congress for spurring the federal shutdown that forced Obama to cancel...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ripped House Speaker John Boehner as a “coward” in private on Thursday — and immediately ­afterwards described him as a “nice guy” in public. “He’s a coward,” Reid said of Boehner, referring to his GOP rival’s efforts to preserve subsidies for lawmakers’ health-care coverage, while later backing a House bill to end them. Reid made the comment at a closed-door meeting of Democratic senators Thursday, Politico reported. Minutes later, he went before TV cameras with a different assessment. “I feel positive that John Boehner — who’s basically a nice guy — cannot let this go...

    Sen. John McCain has hired a controversial Syria analyst who recently was fired by one D.C. organization and resigned from another after it emerged that she inflated her academic credentials. The Republican senator's office confirmed to Fox News that Elizabeth O'Bagy was hired as a legislative assistant, and will start work next week. "Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year. I look forward to her joining my office," McCain said in a statement.

    Maariv quoted an unnamed diplomatic source in Jerusalem Sunday who bluntly called US President Barack Obama a "coward" for stepping back from an attack on Syria. "Obama is a coward; it is obvious that he does not want to attack and is looking for reinforcement [for this approach]. It is hard to believe that after Congress turns down his request, he will go on an operation like this on his own, without support from the international community, without the suport of public opinion and without Congress,” the source said. Maariv says that while Israel's official position on the possible intervention...
