    The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site. The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.

    Really, I can’t completely blame foreigners who hold us Americans in contempt. I know that’s a controversial statement, but my reasoning is explained with two questions: Do people generally respect those who allow themselves to be used as a doormat? And, then, how do people usually feel about the character of a traitor? Now consider what foreigners see from modern America. We not only allow aliens to transgress our borders and often refuse to deport them, but we then also sue each other, with many among us fighting tooth and nail for the “rights” of these interlopers. Where other nations...

    Gangnam Style has become the first video to clock up more than one billion views on YouTube. The South Korean dance track was posted online in July, propelling pop star Psy to worldwide fame.

YouTube's owner, Google, said the video had been watched seven million to 10 million times a day on average. It overtook the previous record holder - Justin Bieber's music video Baby - on 24 November. "Psy's success is a great testament to the universal appeal of...

    PSY is backtracking on that invisible horse of his. The hugely successful “Gangnam Style” rapper shocked many earlier today when anti-American statements he made at a protest concert in 2004 came to light. Among the incendiary lyrics: “Kill those f—king Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those f—king Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughter-in-law and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully.” …

    PSY, the wildly popular Korean rap/pop star who hit it big on YouTube with his viral “Gangnam Style” video, seems so warm and friendly. Scratch beneath the surface, though, and you find anti-American rot: ... He’d get along swell with troop-hating Soulja Boy or cop-killer advocates Ice-T and NWA... PSY will be performing for the White House in a Christmas extravaganza airing on TNT Dec. 21.

    Millions of people are familiar with the South Korean music video "Gangnam Style," credited by the Guiness Book of World Records as the most liked in YouTube history. The song — which features the refrain "Hey, sexy lady!" — has inspired countless parodies. Now Saudi Arabia adds itself to the list. There's only one problem: The video has no ladies. While it shouldn't surprise anyone that a country that is planning a seperate city for working women would omit women from a music video, the optics of "Saudia Gangnam" speak volumes. Even our liberal moral relativist friends can learn a...

    If a two-story house lip-syncing the words to the Korean viral pop song “Gangnam Style” doesn’t scare the hell out of you this Halloween season, nothing will. A family with a lot of free time on their hands set made a light show out of 8,500 lights and set it to what is currently the most popular song on the planet. We all have the Internet to thank for this. You’ll either enjoy it or not be able to sleep tonight. WATCH:
