    The Obama administration pursued a policy in Libya back in 2011 that ultimately allowed guns to walk into the hands of jihadists linked to the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and al-Qaeda (AQ) in Syria, according to a former CIA officer who co-authored a report on behalf of the Citizen’s Commission on Benghazi (CCB), detailing the gun running scheme. In Congress, the then-bipartisan group known as the “Gang of Eight,” at a minimum, knew of the operation to aid and abet America’s jihadist enemies by providing them with material support. So says Clare Lopez, a former CIA officer and the primary author...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric is only serving to turn the international Muslim community against the U.S. "Oh, I think it has an interesting effect of turning Muslims all over the world against the United States of America, which is 99.44 percent people who practice an honorable religion," the Arizona senator said of Trump on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "As all of our candidates bloviate about the refugees, [Syrian President] Bashar Assad is a major cause of the refugees which are now flooding Europe and causing such consternation in the United States," he said....

    Donald Trump has returned to the lead in Iowa while Ted Cruz has now surged past Ben Carson into second place. Carson has slipped from a first-place tie into third. Cruz's move has come directly at the expense of Carson, as nearly one-quarter of his voters switched. In New Hampshire, Donald Trump keeps his commanding lead, keeping up support from conservatives, Republicans and the independents who say they're coming into the GOP primary to vote for him. This month finds Marco Rubio nearly doubling his support and pushing into second place -- albeit far back of Trump -- at 13...

Which is why, for this trip, the Yorktown made special arrangements for a surprise visitor: Mr. Harding. The boys ran to embrace him; hugging an old salt never felt so sweet. It was hard to tell who enjoyed it more, or who needed it more. Over the years Mr. Harding says he'd kept most of his war stories to himself. "I guess I...

    There are many of us, perhaps millions, who believe that the Republican party as a governing force has been the lesser of two evils. We fear what the Democrats are doing to destroy the country but we’re angry about what the Republicans aren’t doing to repair the damage. This is why Donald Trump and Ben Carson have been so popular. It’s why so many people are willing to tell pollsters that they support either of the anti-establishment candidates.Thankfully, there’s a third candidate who would stand in stark contrast to the ineffective Republican Establishment that has been harming the party and...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) warned his fellow Republicans on Wednesday not to place too much emphasis on Syrian refugees following the terrorist attacks in Paris last week, calling their focus misguided. “I believe the overwhelming focus on the refugee program in recent days is misplaced,” said McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, in a written statement. “I especially encourage my fellow Republicans to recognize that refugees are not the problem – they are the symptom of the problem.” Since attacks credited to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) killed at least 129, Republicans have called for...

    Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has been criticised for mocking a disabled New York Times reporter. Mr Trump performed an impression of Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition, at a rally. He has used a 2001 article by Mr Kovaleski to back up widely disputed claims that "thousands" of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the 9/11 attacks. The New York Times called Mr Trump's actions "outrageous".

When the alleged burglars attempted to enter the property, the boy killed one of them and scared off the other. One of the burglar's guns was identified as a Colt .45, and the weapon the boy used was unreported — except that the gun belongs to his mother, who owns it for self-defense.

There's concern, after Friday's brutal attack in Paris, that ISIS fighters are infiltrating those fleeing Syria and will carry out future violence...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is expected to announce a presidential bid, says if the Supreme Court rules same-sex marriage bans unconstitutional, then it will be time for Republicans to move on. Graham told Boston Herald radio on Monday that society is changing and a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and woman is no longer possible. Well, can you be for traditional marriage? Yes. Am I for traditional marriage? Yes, I believe marriage has stood the test of time between a man and a woman, ordained by God, and thats most societies have been organized...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) corrected a woman who called President Obama a "traitor" during an event on Friday. "He's a traitor," the woman called out during Graham's appearance at the Sunshine Summit in Orlando, accusing the president of betraying the U.S. with the Iran nuclear deal. "No, ma'am, he's not a traitor," Graham responded. "He just doesn't know what he's doing."

    Hillary Clinton failed to provide proper security to the US Consular facility in Benghazi, Libya before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012 and she failed to secure any rescue operations for the four Americans who eventually died there. Recently released watch logs from the State Department operations center show she made no official inquiries from 10:30 p.m. that night through 7:15 a.m. the following morning. That is a long time to be missing when a U.S. diplomatic facility is under attack. Why was no rescue effort mounted? That is the question that has been driving good people crazy since this...

    Hillary Clinton's top Democratic "rival" may believe that people are sick of hearing about her "damn emails," but that pronouncement -- since walked back, as its issuer fades in the polls -- evidently does not apply to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Politico reports that the bureau's probe into Clinton's improper, unsecure email scheme has been ramping up, not petering out: Even as Hillary Clinton tries to put questions about her private email server behind her, the FBI has stepped up inquiries into the security of the former Secretary of State's home-made email system, and how aides communicated over email,...

    The negative media scrutiny over Ben Carson's life story is not harming his popularity, with the retired neurosurgeon buoyant in a new poll , and South Carolinians declaring they do not care about the controversies.Whether it is his scholarship offer to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, his unusual theory about pyramids, or his stories about being an angry and violent youth, South Carolina Republican voters remain untroubled, says a new survey by the liberal-leaning firm Public Policy Polling (PPP). Carson holds his second place in the GOP field in S.C. with 21 percent of the vote — exactly where...

GOP primary voters, down from 37 percent support in September....
