    With a world on edge after the coordinated terror attacks in Paris, and as criticism grows louder of the Obama administration’s handling of adversaries such as Iran and Syria, tough talk and defiance have become strong currencies in the presidential race. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson’s mild-mannered, soft-spoken demeanor – which helped endear him to many voters in the first place – now appears to be working against him, while Sen. Ted Cruz’s tell-it-like-it-is, in-your-face style is now raising his stock. In the crucial state of Iowa, which holds closely-watched caucuses, the event in Paris on Nov. 13 changed many conservatives’...

    Fox News Sundays Chris Wallace was a little baffled this morning as he confronted Ben Carson over whether he would get rid of Medicare. Carson insisted he would do no such thing and is merely proposing health savings accounts to eliminate the need for Medicare. Reports last week said that Carson would have the government put $2000 a year into everyones accounts. Wallace asked him if that means giving everyone the same amount of money. Carson said no, but Wallace said, Thats what you were saying, sir. When Wallace pressed him on his past indication he would eliminate Medicare, Carson...

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, in defending against criticisms of his relaxed demeanor on the campaign trail, opened up about his past "volatile" behavior during an interview that aired Sunday. "I have plenty of energy. But, you know, I am soft-spoken. I do have a tendency to be relaxed. I wasn't always like that. There was a time when I was, you know, very volatile," Carson told NBC News. "But, you know, I changed." The retired neurosurgeon went on to explain that "as a teenager, I would go after people with rocks, and bricks, and baseball bats, and hammers." He...

    Ben Carson says he's soft-spoken now -- but he hasn't always been so calm. "As a teenager, I would go after people with rocks, and bricks, and baseball bats, and hammers. And, of course, many people know the story when I was 14 and I tried to stab someone," Carson said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "You know, fortunately, you know, my life has been changed," he added. "And I'm a very different person now." Carson's comments came after Donald Trump, his leading opponent for the Republican presidential nomination, said at a rally in Miami on Friday that Carson has...
  • VIDEO: Mark Steyn Hammers Obama On Senseless Violence Comment

    Per the Canadian jihad attack this morning, Steyn takes aim at a comment made by President Obama decrying the senseless violence in Ottawa. Namely, that jihadist attacks are not senseless violence but in fact are very purposeful, ideological outbreaks of violence and should be discussed as such rather than dismissed as senseless violence or workplace violence or some other nonsense. Well worth a watch. This goes just short of six minutes.

    In December, men gritted their teeth and were nice to their in-laws. They held purses while their women tried on 20 dresses. And they donned a tie for New Year's Eve. And now they are rebelling: It's Manuary. In January, as part of the Manuary movement, men across the country will bypass the razor and grow their beards with abandon. (No trimming allowed!) The truly devoted will boost their red meat and whiskey intake. Chicago resident Bill Housewright, 31, a filmmaker-turned-science teacher, claims he created Manuary in 2005 to get in touch with his "redneck, ex-country past." He grew up...

    MUSCAT, Oman - Cyclone Gonu battered Oman's coast Wednesday with fierce winds and torrential rains, forcing thousands from their homes and shutting down oil installations before heading toward the world's most important crude oil tanker route. The storm a rarity in the Middle East was expected to make landfall on the southeastern Iranian coast late Thursday, according to the U.S. military's Joint Typhoon Warning Center. But it was likely to spare Iran's offshore oil installations that lie more than 120 miles to the west. In Muscat, the cyclone unleashed sheets of rainfall and howling winds rarely seen in...

    Couple accused of torturing children Allegedly pulled out kids' toenails, beat them with hammers Friday, February 4, 2005 Posted: 5:27 AM EST (1027 GMT) (CNN) -- A manhunt has been launched in Florida for a couple accused of torturing five of seven children in their home, including pulling out their toenails with pliers and keeping them so malnourished that they "looked like pictures from Auschwitz," authorities said Thursday. Citrus County Sheriff's spokeswoman Gail Tierney said an arrest warrant was issued for John Dollar, 58, and his wife, Linda, 51 -- each of whom face one count of "aggravated child abuse/torture"...
