    With gun ownership on the rise and the numbers of those with concealed carry permits exploding, a new poll shows that Americans are ready to use those weapons if threatened.In a survey for Insurancequotes.com, 78 percent said that they are mentally and physically prepared to kill an intruder. And even those armed with less lethal weapons, such as pepper spray or a golf club, would kill if they had to.    Some 44 percent of homes have a gun, according to the Pew Research Center.The thrust of the survey was to see how well prepared Americans are to handle an...

    Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said late Wednesday that she is still ready to be president of the United States. Clinton made the comments during an appearance on Comedy Centrals The Daily Show after host Trevor Noah displayed several clips of conservative pundits, including Fox News's Sean Hannity, mistakenly referring to her as president. Ive noticed this seems to be a theme with them, yes, Clinton said, referring to the pundits. And I can only say, if they want to make that world a reality, Im still ready, she said. Clinton has been hitting the speaking and television circuit...

    China has reportedly put its military on alert for a possible crisis in Korea. Beijing is calling for calm, but the situation on the peninsula is extremely tense. Evidence suggests that North Korea may be preparing for a sixth nuclear test, and President Donald Trumps posture in the wake of the recent strikes on Syria has the Chinese concerned. The USS Carl Vinson, accompanied by several guided-missile destroyers and cruisers, is on its way to Korea. If Pyongyang conducts its sixth nuclear test in the near future, the possibility of US military action against it will be higher than ever,...

     A recent video posted this week shows Islamic Republic strategist, Hassan Abbassi, discussing the destructive potential of Iran’s hidden army within the US. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander Abbassi admitted to having terror cells situation and ready to strike in the United States. Abbassi: I’ll be brief. We have two million Iranians there. Be certain that I will raise a guerilla army from amongst them against you. You know this well. Look how vulnerable you were on 9-11 when four Arabs who don’t know how to fight managed to endanger your foundations.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxYJWXxW9tc

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on the U.S. presidential campaign (all times EDT): ___ 5:41 p.m. President Barack Obama is reviving his own campaign call-and-response of "Fired up, ready to go" at a rally for Hillary Clinton. Obama is getting nostalgic at his rally in Durham, New Hampshire, as he tells the story of how the chant came about in 2008. He says when he started running he was just a "skinny guy with a funny name." Obama says a woman in a church hat in the back of a room at an obscure campaign event randomly started the chant,...

    Beijing must prepare to make the US “pay a cost it can’t stand” if it intervenes in the South China Sea dispute by force, a state newspaper editorial has warned, days before a court at The Hague rules on the territorial row between China and the Philippines. The American military build-up in the South China Sea, including the deployment of two carrier strike groups, comes in defiance of China’s vital interests and represents “a direct threat to national security,” the state-run Global Times said in strongly-worded editorials in its Chinese and English editions on Tuesday.  Beijing should accelerate developing its...

    Muhammad Ali is in "grave condition" in a Phoenix-area hospital, a well-informed source tells NBC News, as the boxing legend continues to battle a respiratory condition. The 74-year-old former heavyweight champion's family has gathered by his bedside just a day after he had been hospitalized in what spokesman Bob Gunnell said Thursday was to be a "brief" stay.

    President Barack Obama on Thursday spoke to American rabbis in a pre-Rosh Hashanah phone call, and told them that security talks with Israel had resumed and he hoped to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu by early next month, The Forward reports. In his annual pre-High Holidays call to the rabbis, Obama said that he was ready to meet with Netanyahu during the United Nations General Assembly opening session, which starts next week and runs through October 6. Our consultations have already begun with Israeli military and intelligence officials, Obama said, according to The Forward. My hope is to have...

    Yahoo! News ^ | 5/2/14 | Jeff Greenfield - The daily beast
    Hillary Clintons running mate. The ideal candidate would be someone clearly equipped by experience to handle the presidency at a moments notice, and who was held in high esteem by the public; maybe even someone who exemplified a time when Americans felt better about their countrys prospects. By that measure, there is at first glance one obvious choice: Bill Clinton. He would be by far the most clearly qualified candidate for the job. More than two-thirds of Americans look on him favorably, and last year, 55 percent told Gallup they saw Clinton as an outstanding or above-average president.

    The Fiscal Times ^ | 1/16/14 | Eric Pianin
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell delivered an extraordinary floor speech last week in which he essentially auditioned for the job of Majority Leader the one currently held by Democrat Harry Reid of Nevada. For 40 minutes, the Kentucky Republican who is up for reelection this year railed against Reid and the Democratic majority for a take-it-or-leave it brand of governance akin to a permanent sort of shirts-against-skins contest. McConnell outlined three main reforms the Republicans would adopt if they were to win control of the Senate in November: allowing a more robust committee process, permitting more amendments on the...

    OTTAWA--Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has told U.S. President Barack Obama that he's ready to work on joint plan between the two countries to reduce carbon emissions in the energy sector in an effort to secure approval of the Keystone XL pipeline project, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday. The CBC, citing unnamed sources, said Mr. Harper wrote to Mr. Obama in late August, signaling he is ready to accept carbon-reduction targets proposed by the U.S. and prepared to work with the White House to address concerns raised about Keystone and its impact on greenhouse-gas emissions. A spokesman for Mr....

    YNet reports that we were a lot closer to war last weekend than most Israelis realize. The war book is ready. When Defense Minister Ehud Barak arrived at the Defense Ministry Headquarters meeting room last Saturday, a thick war book titled Operation South was already awaiting his approval on his desk. In those hours, Israel was on the verge of embarking on war in the Gaza Strip. The book did not pertain to a limited operation. The selected targets would have certainly prompted a major flare-up, including difficult regional implications. Just like in Operation Cast Lead, the political leadership granted...

    Tehran, Iran - Iran on Monday unveiled underground missile silos for the first time as it kicked off 10 days of large-scale war games, the country's latest show of military force amid a standoff with the West over its disputed nuclear program. State TV broadcast footage of deep underground silos, claiming that medium- and long-range missiles stored in them are ready to launch in case of an attack on Iran. The sites are widely viewed as a strategic asset for Iran to launch a strike in the event of a U.S. or Israeli attack on its nuclear facilities. (Snip) An

    To cleanse the palate, the science fiction event of a lifetime. Alas, if only it were real. This is a fake a slickly produced fake, to be sure, replete with clever editing and enough gags to make it a bona fide viral video phenomenon, but still a fake. I promise, though, that youll enjoy it anyway, either as a straightforward rendering of what an inevitably crappy E.T. sequel would look like or as a broader parody of Hollywoods paint-by-numbers evil aliens genre. Why, theres even an Obama cameo! Although, admittedly, that part doesnt ring true: He sounds pretty resolute...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) The United States is ill-equipped to deal with a major oil catastrophe in Alaska, the Coast Guard admiral who led the US response to the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill and others warn. Only one of the US Coast Guard's three ice breakers is operational and would be available to respond to a disaster off Alaska's northern coast, which is icebound for much of the year, retired admiral Thad Allen told reporters this week. Former Alaska lieutenant governor Fran Ulmer said that before drilling in the Arctic, the United States must "invest in the Coast Guard."...

In recent weeks, they have been doing basic chores like painting handrails and scrubbing the deck while the federal government reviewed Castex Energys application to drill a natural gas well in 150 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico a normally quick process that turned glacial after the BP oil spill on April 20 prompted regulators to shut down almost all new drilling in the region.
