    This is the terrifying collection of nearly 500 guns and 200,000 rounds of ammunition which was seized from a parish council chairman who collected firearms 'like stamps'. Police revealed the full extent of their discovery at the home of crane operator James Arnold in Wyverstone, Suffolk. It is the biggest arsenal of illegal weapons ever found in the UK. Three months after the discovery and the 49-year-old's arrest in April 2014, Arnold died of pancreatic cancer, meaning he could never face prosecution. But as firearms dealer Anthony Buckland, 65, was jailed for at Norwich Crown Court for supplying some of...

    President Barack Obama complained that Fox News made him “look scary” during his first run for president, and suggested that his race was part of the network’s attempt to slant the presidential election. Obama made his remarks during a conversation with author Marilynne Robinson which was published by The New York Review. While discussing a book she wrote about Iowa, Obama recalled his own experiences with the people there as he was running for president. “I wasn’t viewed through this prism of Fox News and conservative media, and making me scary,” he said, adding that it was easy for him...

    Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, 71, still likes to wake and bake. But he's fussy about where the weed comes from. "I smoke regularly, an early morning joint. Strictly Californian," The Independent reports the musician told Mojo magazine for its September issue. Richards, who is currently promoting his solo album "Crosseyed Heart," also remarked on the spread of marijuana legalization in the United States. "One of the most pleasant things to watch is a map of America where it goes, green ... green ... green ... green," The Independent reports he said. "Whether it’s a good thing in the long...

It seems everyone on the activist left of the Democratic party wants Elizabeth Warren to challenge Hillary Clinton. The New York Working Families Party, born out of the infamous and disbanded ACORN empire, has endorsed her. A new YouGov poll paid for by Warren backers purports to show that once voters are familiar with the stances of both women, Warren will beat Hillary in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Warren, who was elected to the Senate from Massachusetts only four years ago, has refused...

    In recent days, there has been a truly frightening articulation of the US administration’s perception of Israel vis-à-vis the Muslim world. On Friday, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta essentially blamed Israel for its own “increasing isolation,” urging the Jewish state to reach out to its neighbors. He suggested that Israel make diplomatic inroads with the Muslim Brotherhood’s Egypt, Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s increasingly Islamist and anti-Israel Turkey, and vulnerable Jordan, a country whose leadership – for the sake of self-preservation – has been making concessions to its own Muslim Brotherhood. And when asked at the end of his speech at the Brookings...
