    Beijing (CNN) — In an historic first, China has successfully landed a rover on the far side of the moon, Chinese state media announced Thursday, a huge milestone for the nation as it attempts to position itself as a leading space power. China's National Space Administration (CNSA) landed the Chang'e 4 lunar probe at 10:26 am Beijing time on Thursday, in the South Pole-Aitken Basin which is an impact crater, China Central Television (CCTV) reported. It made its final descent from a landing orbit 15 kilometers above the moon's surface. State media reported the rover transmitted back the world's first...

    Exclusive: Mychal Massie warns Repubs of retribution for betraying voters, president! That there is a mélange of Erebusic marplots committed to preventing President Trump from accomplishing his agenda and also preventing him from keeping his promises to We the People cannot be denied. There was a time when it was inconceivable that politicians from a president’s own party would work so aggressively to undermine his agenda and sabotage his presidency – but that is exactly what Republicans are doing to President Trump. They are resisting his agenda and strenuously working to make sure his presidency fails. That leads me to...

    The first volunteer in a fast-tracked British safety trial of an experimental Ebola vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline received the injection on Wednesday, trial organisers said. The candidate Ebola vaccine, which GSK co-developed with the U.S. National Institutes of Health, has also been given to 10 volunteers taking part in a similar separate trial in the United States, and so far there were no signs of any serious adverse reactions, doctors said. The vaccine being tested in the UK is designed to specifically target the Zaire strain of Ebola, the one circulating in the West Africa epidemic, the worst Ebola outbreak...

    In a recent paper, Lubinski and his colleagues caught up with one cohort of 320 people now in their late 30s. At 12, their SAT math or verbal scores had placed them among the top one-100th of 1 percent. Today, many are CEOs, professors at top research universities, transplant surgeons, and successful novelists. That outcome sounds like exactly what you’d imagine should happen: Top young people grow into high-achieving adults. In the education world, the study has provided important new evidence that it really is possible to identify the kids who are likely to become exceptional achievers in the future,...

      The dismal trail of dead bankers continues. As The Journal Star reports, a successful Lincoln businessman and member of a prominent local family died last week. Former National Bank of Commerce CEO James Stuart Jr. was found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death. This brings the total of banker deaths in recent weeks to 9 as Stuart is sadly survived by three sons and four daughters.  Mr Stuart's background (via The Journal Star), Stuart was a native of Lincoln and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with...

    Good view of Obama's real motives. OPINION September 8, 2013, 6:40 p.m. ET Obama's Successful Foreign Failure The president may look incompetent on Syria. But his behavior fits his strategy to weaken America abroad. By NORMAN PODHORETZ It is entirely understandable that Barack Obama's way of dealing with Syria in recent weeks should have elicited responses ranging from puzzlement to disgust. Even members of his own party are despairingly echoing in private the public denunciations of him as "incompetent," "bungling," "feckless," "amateurish" and "in over his head" coming from his political opponents on the right. For how else to characterize...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/05/2013 | By Chris W. Bell
    What do the despised rich, smart kids, and fallen heroes have in common? They are all victims of the progressive movement. When being rich is finally made synonymous with undeserved privilege, individual achievement in other areas will be targeted. When success is considered unfair, then being unsuccessful will be called unfair and undeserved. And those of means and ability who reject this burden will be demonized. Progressives have turned society against conservatives who are successful through business; they claim that the rich have hoarded the profits that they made on the backs of the public. "Spread the wealth around" and...

    Unlike most of my fellow conservatives, I actually enjoyed President Obama’s recent speech at a fundraiser about how you’re not responsible for your life’s outcome (“If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”) Why, I liked it so much I went back and listened to it in the original Cherokee (Elizabeth Warren: “Nobody in this country got rich on his own — nobody!”). My only objection is that the focus of their comments was too narrow. The president says, “if you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.” He’s right,...

    At the election night party of "tea party" favorite Chuck DeVore in Tustin, Carole Mullner and her daughter Stephanie Perez were among the first to arrive. Outfitted in red T-shirts branding them as "insurgents" for DeVore, they enjoyed a rare moment of calm after months of campaigning for the Republican Senate candidate. Mullner, an artist and member of the West Covina Tea Partiers, set aside her work in January to hunt down volunteers and raise money as DeVore's "ambassador" for the cities along the 210 Freeway. Perez, a 31-year-old member of the Chino Hills Tea Party, served in that same...

    ( – The Obama administration is playing down the absence of U.N. Security Council unanimity in adopting new sanctions against Iran on Wednesday, attributing three members’ refusal to back the resolution to differences over “timing and tactics.” Turkey and Brazil voted against resolution 1929, while Lebanon abstained.

    I don’t believe that any company is “too big to fail.” If a company has adhered to risky business practices, and the risks fail, then I think the company should be allowed to fail. I’d far rather have seen our government make it a bit easier for small and mid-sized businesses in this country to stay afloat, rather than shell out tens and hundreds of billions of TARP dollars on the likes of AIG, CitiGroup, Wells Fargo, and the likes. That said, however, I definitely don’t think the United States government should be meddling in the financial affairs of businesses...

Despite an early morning attempt by terrorists to disrupt the elections, the Iraqi people resolved themselves to get out and vote.

    LANCASTER, Pa. – The mother of the nation's first double hand transplant patient says he's out of the hospital and looking forward to returning to his wife and daughter in Georgia. Doris Schafer told the Intelligencer Journal-Lancaster New Era that her son, Jeff Kepner, visited her over the weekend in Lancaster. She says he plans to return to Augusta, Ga., at the end of this week. Schafer says Kepner is considerably happier than when she saw him in June at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, about a month after the transplant. She says her son still has no feeling...

    Laying out the Bush administration's case for treatment of terror suspects, former Vice President Dick Cheney challenged the Obama administration to declassify information about the intelligence gleaned from enhanced interrogation techniques. "Releasing the interrogation memos was flatly contrary to the national security interest of the United States," Cheney said Thursday at the American Enterprise Institute. "The harm done only begins with top secret information now in the hands of the terrorists, who have just received a lengthy insert for their training manual." "I was and remain a strong proponent of our enhanced interrogation program," Cheney said. "They were legal, essential,...

    Being the child of a wealthy entrepreneur must be something of a mixed blessing. Growing up in such a hothouse atmosphere, full of privilege and expectation, cannot be a relaxing experience. I spend most of my time working with entrepreneurs, and I really believe that they are not the same as other people. They have an ambition, a competitive urge and a lust to take risks that is way beyond the norm. I recall meeting Rupert Murdoch, Jimmy Goldsmith and Richard Branson on separate occasions in my late teens and wondering what they were like as businessmen and, even more,...

    Does anyone else out there miss Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's presence on the national stage? I miss her terribly. All anyone wants to talk about nowadays are pirates and our horrible economy; back in election days, the stock market could drop 700 points in a day and the lead story would be Gov. Palin's inability to form a complete sentence on national television. Who cares about your pension being wiped out when you can feel smarter than a vice presidential candidate? Of course, it was just cheap fun and the country was going to have to move on from poking...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 2009 – Iraq’s government and its security forces deserve praise for overseeing the successful and mostly violence-free provincial elections that were held countrywide Jan. 31, a senior U.S. military officer posted in Iraq said today. “First and foremost, I’d like to congratulate the government of Iraq for a successful, legitimate and credible election,” Army Lt. Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, commander of Multinational Corps Iraq, told reporters during a Baghdad news conference. Iraqi soldiers and police performed well during the election, Austin said, citing their “well-coordinated and executed security plan.” The “hard work and dedication” evidenced...

Video The 3rd Infantry Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team has operated in the Arab Jabour area of southeastern Baghdad, where the number of attacks plummeted from about 30 a week when they arrived in May 2007 to about one a week now. “All in all, it's been a very successful operation for us,” Army Col. Terry Ferrell,...
