    A passenger reportedly tried to force his way into the cockpit of the Honolulu-bound flight from Los Angeles The US military on Friday scrambled two Air Force fighter jets to escort an American Airlines flight into Honolulu international airport after a disturbance was reported on board, a Pacific Command spokesman said.

    Steve Neal, Chicago's premiere political columnist for decades, famous for his encyclopedic knowledge of history and political lore, for endlessly swapping stories with political junkies and for his books that ranged from a biography of Wendell Wilkie to the correspondence between Eleanor Roosevelt and Harry Truman, died Wednesday at his Hinsdale home. He was 54 and had been hospitalized overnight this week at Northwestern Hospital for a heart problem, his family said. Hinsdale police said they responded to a “carbon monoxide alarm’’ Wednesday afternoon at the home. Mr. Neal was among the city's most savvy political analysts, but unlike many...

    The night he locked up the Democratic presidential nomination, Barack Obama predicted that generations hence, people would look back on the historic day as "the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." At the time, his words reeked of hubris. Today, they look positively delusional. President Obama can't stop the oil leak in the Gulf, but he can and should be held accountable for the inept government response to cleaning it up and mitigating its worst effects on the shoreline. And you can bet that if George W. Bush were in...

    DENVER – One of the teenagers formally charged in connection with a deadly shooting at a Denver light rail station earlier this month was under the watch of U.S. Enforcement and Immigration officials, Denver7 has learned.

    ICE had a detainer on him, but claims Denver Sheriff's Dept didn't notify them. Denver claims they did, but their "proof" is a 2-page PDF of a FAX showing they released him on 12/20/16 11:30pm, yet the FAX is dated 12/20/16 11:35PM! Liars. You released him close to midnight and faxed ICE 5 minutes later. And notice this is the 3rd Denver Light Rail incident in the past month or so. One was a Muslim convert (had jihadi lit at home) murdering an employee who was giving directions to 2 women. Other was video of a TDS black woman screaming...
