    Politico reports that James O’Keefe has been sued for an undercover video sting he released last year: O’Keefe and his organization posted some of the videos online last October, purporting to show efforts by Democrats to provoke violence at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies and events. The recordings led two Democratic operatives, Robert Creamer and Scott Foval, to leave their posts even as they decried O’Keefe’s tactics. In the new civil lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington Thursday, Creamer, his Strategic Consulting Group and a related firm called Democracy Partners accuse O’Keefe and several colleagues of conspiring to violate...

    A video of a golfer teeing off at TPC Sawgrass has been making the internet rounds, and not because he crushed his drive--he also hit a duck in the process. It's one of those freak things in life where physics can't explain just how the man's trajectory perfectly synced with the unaware bird's flight path. Unfortunately, the duck fared worse than the player's rinsed tee shot.

    A duck is one of the last animals you would expect to find on an aeroplane flight, not least because they have wings and can fly wherever they like free of charge. However, this bird provides a special service - it is an emotional support duck for a passenger who is worried about flying.

A 14-year-old duck hunter took a shot at a low-flying duck and shotgun pellets hit this anti-hunter in the face. Julia Symons was hit by at...

    An animal rights activist was beaten with a duck by a Spanish woman defending one of the country's most bizarre and controversial festival traditions. The man was whacked with the bird while he filmed the annual "duck chase" in the Catalonian seaside town of Roses, where every August ducks are thrown into the Mediterranean and then caught and brought back to the shore by swimmers. "Continue, continue. Continue to abuse, I am filming you. A little bit of empathy for the animals. They also have a life, like your children or your family," the man who was filming can be...

    A coalition of largely liberal organizations has written a letter asking the Senate to extend the lame duck to allow as many of President Barack Obama’s nominees to win confirmation before Republicans take control of the chamber.

The letter, sent Monday to Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., calls for prolonging the second session of the 113th Congress to help clear the...

    Ansgar Graw and Frank Hermann were cuffed and jailed for three hours the day after arriving in the beleaguered suburb of St. Louis. […] The journalists had wanted to take pictures of a burned out gas station on Florissant Avenue, the street at the center of the week-long protest. […] “We felt there were no threats, everything is completely peaceful, and we said that we would stay on and take the photos we wanted,” Graw wrote. Then a young police officer says: “Okay, but only if you keep moving. The moment you stay standing, you’ll be arrested. That’s the last...

It is a trick question: the dish named for China’s capital has its origins in Nanjing, hundreds of kilometres to the south. The tidbit is one of the revelations in a museum opened earlier this month to mark the 150th anniversary of the Quanjude restaurant, now the seven-storey flagship of a chain with franchises as far away as Australia. Statues of roasters, photos of officials dining and menus going back 100 years trace the duck’s route from humble...

He added "I don’t know why insulting #Israel & #Zionism is ‘Anti-Semitic’?! They are just a bunch of Polish/ Ethiopian immigrants roughly 70 years old."...
