    Sovereign Debt Crisis: For many Americans, the EU's trillion-dollar bailout of Greece and other troubled European welfare states is probably of little concern. But they should know that they are going to help pay for it. Much of the media coverage has centered on the "European Union" bailout of its members. But the fact is, the U.S. is playing a much larger role in this than many realize - from strategizing to financing. As a New York Times headline noted Monday, the EU agreed to its $1 trillion rescue only after "nudge from Washington." President Obama, we're told, phoned German...

    A heroic homeless man, stabbed after saving a Queens woman from a knife-wielding attacker, lay dying in a pool of blood for more than an hour as nearly 25 people indifferently strolled past him, a shocking surveillance video obtained by The Post reveals. Some of the passers-by paused to stare at Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax last Sunday morning and others leaned down to look at his face. He had jumped to the aid of a woman attacked on 144th Street at 88th Road in Jamaica at 5:40 a.m., was stabbed several times in the chest and collapsed as he chased his...

    Anger built Saturday at Haiti's US-controlled main airport, where aid flights were still being turned away and poor coordination continued to hamper the relief effort four days on. "Let's take over the runway," shouted one voice. "We need to send a message to (US President Barack) Obama," cried another. Control remained in the hands of US forces, who face criticism for the continued disarray at the overwhelmed airfield.

    Racial tension has been building at Owatonna High School this week after a fight broke out Monday between white and Somali students, prompting heightened police presence, backpack searches and widespread parental worries.

Principal Don Johnson said the problems began when two white students wrote papers in recent weeks that were "inflammatory and very disrespectful." One student handed out copies of his paper to friends, while the other posted his on a class blog. Both were...

    Congressman Robert Aderholt Republican from Alabama voted against the financial bail out bill both times it was presented in the House.

Upon learning he had dared to listen to his constituents the left leaning Decatur Daily blasted him in an editorial, suggesting constituents opinions should NOT be a consideration in his decision on how to vote ! What kind of nation would we have if all those elected officials in Washington stopped listening to, nor valued the opinion of...

All six Muslim leaders were kicked off a November flight after some passengers said they were acting suspiciously. The Imams were released after being questioned by the FBI and the...
