  • Fox News Fires ‘The Five’ Co-Host Bob Beckel Over Racist Comment

    Fox News Channel is parting ways – again – with Bob Beckel, the co-host of its primetime program, “The Five.” “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” the network said in a statement. The dismissal opens – or perhaps closes – another chapter in an off-and-on relationship Beckel has had with the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet over the years. Beckel, a longtime political consultant as well as a former campaign manager for Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale, joined Fox News in 2000, and had a years-long tenure on “The Five” when it...

    Bringing government spending under control. At the last Republican presidential debate, I presented the Simple Flat Tax - which, for a family of four, exempts the first $36,000 from all income tax, and above that amount collects one low rate of 10 percent for all Americans. It eliminates the death tax, the payroll tax, the corporate income tax, and the Obamacare taxes; ends the corporate carve-outs and loopholes; and requires every business to pay the same simple business flat tax of 16 percent. That plan will unleash unprecedented growth, create millions of new jobs, raise after-tax incomes for all income...

    Cosmic Inflation’s Five Great Predictions A “speculative” theory no more; it’s had four of them confirmed. Image credit: Max Tegmark / Scientific American, by Alfred T. Kamajian. “Scientific ideas should be simple, explanatory, predictive. The inflationary multiverse as currently understood appears to have none of those properties.” -Paul Steinhardt, 2014 When we think about the Big Bang, we typically think about the origin of the Universe: the hot, dense, expanding state where everything came from. By noticing and measuring the fact that the Universe is expanding today — that the galaxies are getting farther apart from one another in all directions — we...

    PITTSBURGH, May 16, 2013 ( – Tougher safety regulations passed in the wake of grisly discoveries at Kermit Gosnell’s “house of horrors” abortion facility have resulted in the closure of five Pittsburgh abortion centers since last June.Act 122, which took effect last June, requires abortion facilities to meet the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities in the state.While some abortion centers have been able to bring their facilities up to par, five facilities in the Pittsburgh area have been shut down. One was closed by the state health department; the others closed voluntarily. There are now only two abortion...
  • It Only Took Five Minutes for Democrats to Politicize the Oklahoma Tornado

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: It took five minutes. Five minutes. It only took five minutes before the Democrat Party politicized the tornado in Oklahoma. They politicize everything, folks. They rub their hands together in glee when there is a natural disaster that they think they can spin in such a way as to advance their political agenda. If any of you doubt that global warming is a political issue and not a science issue, then you must open your mind and consider why in the world, ask yourself, why in the world, five minutes after the news hits of this horrible...

    The new virus is not the same as SARS, but similar to it and also to other coronaviruses found in bats. (Reuters) Saudi Arabia said five more people have died of a deadly new virus from the same family as SARS, and two other people were in intensive care. The seven cases were discovered in al-Ahsa governorate in the Eastern Province, the Saudi news agency SPA quoted the Saudi Health Ministry as saying in a statement late on Wednesday.

A Saudi man died in March from the virus.

The novel coronavirus (NCoV) is from the same family of viruses as those...

You can stop a charging dump truck with a 12 gauge slug. Then the conversation moved to: What would you take if you could only have five guns the rest of...

    On Monday's edition of The Fox News Channel's "The Five", Bob Beckel insults the capabilities of our Marines by saying "no amount of Marines could have stopped the Embassy attacks".That would only be true if those Marines had no ammo.It seems like I've heard other RATS say the same thing over the past few days but I haven't been able to find any clips. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As Missy and I discuss in today's video, we had an especially uplifting church service. I preached on one of my favorite topics: The blood of Christ and how the whole of scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, points to the Cross. In fact, the praise team offered a special arrangement of "At the Cross" for the offertory, and it was a big ol' blessing to me.

    Five Governor's Races Could Indicate GOP Success In 2012 By Chris Cillizza June 21, 2010 The roots of a Republican political renaissance in 2012 lie in the Rust Belt. That swath of manufacturing- based states in the Midwest -- Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan -- with tentacles that reach as far east as Pennsylvania, has been the epicenter of the economic difficulties in the country over the past few years. Each state is hosting a competitive gubernatorial race this fall. Republicans argue that a clean sweep (or close to it) would immediately change the electoral calculus heading into the nationwide redistricting...

  • Five Democrats help pass proposals to outlaw mandated health insurance

    Breaking with their party and president, five Democrats yesterday helped push through the state Senate a Republican measure allowing Virginians to just say no to compulsory health insurance. Voting 23-17, the Democratic-controlled Senate approved three identical proposals -- Senate Bills 283, 311 and 417 -- making it illegal to require residents to purchase health-care coverage. Similar bills are under consideration in the Republican-dominated House. Virginia joins a growing number of states -- at least 30, according to The Associated Press -- where legislators are debating proposals that object to government-mandated health-care proposals similar to those being considered by Congress.

    5) After seven years straight without a single terrorist attack on American soil, it is only since Obama took office and began "healing the rifts" between Islam and the West that we have been repeatedly attacked. 4) As even the Washington Post confirms, the only times we have actually acquired useful intelligence from a terrorist are when we've abandoned the Obama approach and resorted to college hazing rituals like water-boarding. 3) As I have noted, both Iran and North Korea are far more dangerous and defiant now under Obama than ever before...

    He started late, made them laugh for the first 5 minutes then gently kicked out the media. “I’m Al Gore and I used to be the next president of America,” he said. Everyone laughed. “Now I’m a recovering politician”. In the script of his speech which he was to deliver after the dozen or so journalists were escorted out of the ballroom, Gore argues “Physical changes in our planet will influence global business and require new corporate strategies that take into account the broader environmental, social and political issues involved in shaping the clean economy of the future.”

    Two more workers died overnight after a bridge under construction in the Pyrenees principality of Andorra collapsed, bringing the death toll to five, the government said Sunday. Six other workers were recovering in hospital after the concrete structure of the road bridge gave way around midday Saturday near the Dos Valires tunnel in the Massana valley in northwest Andorra. Emergency teams worked throughout the night to rescue a man who was trapped up to the waist in rubble, but he died shortly after being pulled from the debris in the early hours on Sunday, according to a government spokesman.
