    After Ambassador J. Chris Stevens was killed in the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not even know his name.

The first, sent by Ms. Clinton from her secret "Hrod17" email at 11:38 pm, had the subject of "Chris Smith" and asked if the State Department should announce his death: In response, Cheryl Mills, the Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary Clinton, did not correct...

    During live coverage of the Baltimore riots during the 5:00 p.m. ET hour on Monday, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith scolded and mocked hosts of The Five for daring to ask legitimate questions about the violence. Eric Bolling simply observing that the rioters were "predominantly African-American" set Smith off: "Hey, it's a predominantly African-American community....But if we want to create larger racial tensions on the heels of this and all the recent African-American problems that we've seen, then we can do that. But if we'd like to look at this as a history of people having problem with police, not...

    Good for Greg Gutfeld! He called out Fox News’ Shepard Smith for seeming to justify the lawlessness on the streets of Baltimore by incessantly repeating the Leftist talking points that it is all in the larger “context” of poverty and alleged police brutality. After listening to Smith drone on with that drivel, Gutfeld finally said, “That sounds really disturbing to me. It’s almost as though you are justifying this action, Shep.” Smith denied that, but kept repeating the talking points used for justifying the lawless actions. Roger Ailes needs to get rid of Shepard Smith. . . .

    Republican lawmakers chastised the head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Friday, saying the agency’s obsession with global warming is undercutting space exploration programs. “There are 13 other agencies involved in climate change research, but only one that is responsible for space exploration,” Texas Rep. Lamar Smith told NASA administrator Charles Bolden in a hearing. “The administration continues to starve NASA’s exploration programs to fund a partisan environmental agenda,” Smith said. “NASA simply deserves better.” Republicans are concerned that NASA is spending too much money on Earth sciences while cutting funding for space exploration.

"Most times you catch it before it gets out the studio door but in this case it got by," he says. "Sam's people were very understanding of our predicament and we easily came to an agreement. "

    The Mormon church has admitted that its founder was a polygamist who married a 14-year-old girl, breaking a lengthy silence about its history. Joseph Smith, who wrote the Book of Mormon and established the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is thought to have married as many as 50 women, but for years the senior church officials did not address the subject. But this week the organization acknowledged that the practice took place, and named Helen Mar Kimball, 'who was sealed to Joseph several months before her 15th birthday.' Estimates have placed the total number of Smith's wives between...

    When Jere Hilland teaches you how to defend yourself, he always preaches using "reasonable force." "In other words, if someone punches you in the nose, you can punch them in the nose," said Hilland, who has taught firearms classes in North Dakota for 10 years. "But you can't keep punching them in the nose. That's excessive force." That's where Hilland guesses Byron Smith went wrong. Smith was found guilty Tuesday of premeditated murder after fatally shooting two teenagers who entered his home in Little Falls, Minn., on Thanksgiving Day 2012.

That was the challenging observation made this morning by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, on the floor of the U.S. House.

Smith returned Calliope Wong’s application — and application fee — earlier this month, reports The Advocate. “As you may remember from our previous correspondence, Smith is a women’s college, which means that undergraduate applicants to Smith must be female at the time of admission,” admissions dean Debra Shaver wrote in a letter to Wong, The Advocate says. Wong has identified as female for several years, according to the Keystone Student Voice. However, on the FAFSA (Free Application for...

    Will Smith once stood as arguably the most bankable film star in Hollywood. That was so 2007. The actor suffered a rare box office disappointment a year later with Seven Pounds, and then he kept out of the limelight until last year´s obligatory sequel Men in Black III. This year offers the biggest challenge to Smith´s star status. Can the erstwhile Fresh Prince survive a film project directed by Hollywood laughingstock M. Night Shyamalan as well as a blow to his bipartisan appeal? Over the weekend we learned Smith was one of President Barack Obama´s superbundlers,

    Global medical technology firm Smith & Nephew announced Thursday the layoff of almost 100 workers at its Tennessee and Massachusetts plants — and placed blame for the drawdown firmly at the feet of Obamacare. The London-based company makes orthopedic reconstruction products. It faces a 2.3 percent tax on its medical devices, due to Obamacare mandates, Fox News reports. In a statement, the company said: “Unfortunately, and in order to absorb this cost burden into or business, this has meant less than 100 positions have been made redundant across various departmental functions in our Tennessee and Massachusetts sites,” according to Fox...

    Stephen A. Smith’s motor mouth placed him in the eye of controversy Thursday, but the ESPN yakker denied dropping the N-word while discussing Kobe Bryant on “First Take.” On the show, Smith sarcastically pooh-poohed the idea that Bryant would miss the Lakers’ opener because of a foot injury. Listening to a replay of SAS’ commentary provides evidence that he voiced the slur. “Opening night, Kobe Bryant is going to miss it because my foot is sprained? Are you crazy? (N-word) please,” Smith said.

    On France’s TF1 in early May, Smith explained why he supported the idea of paying higher taxes, saying, "I have no issue with paying taxes and whatever needs to be done for my country to grow. I believe very firmly that my ability to sit here -- I'm a black man who didn't go to college, yet I get to travel around the world and sell my movies, and I believe very firmly that America is the only place on Earth that I could exist. So I will pay anything that I need to pay to keep my country growing."...
