He points to the release of three hostages from North Korea, meetings between leaders of North and South Korea, and a planned summit which he hopes will lead to lasting peace in the area. "I'm so happy. Actually two days...

    Over the past decade, more than 3.5 million Americans have left high-tax blue states like California, New York, and many others in the Northeast, for low-tax red states like Arizona, Florida, and Texas. While the migration has been happening for years, conservative economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore are forecasting the next significant movement out of blue states could be right around the corner. Earlier this week, in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal titled “So Long, California. Sayonara, New York,” Laffer and Moore spoke about a provision within the brand-new tax bill that could create a mass migration...

    Just hours after he pried a rifle from a gunman who'd opened fire at a Waffle House in Tennessee, James Shaw Jr. launched a fundraiser to help the victims' families.

Meantime, the Antioch, Tennessee, restaurant has pledged to donate all its proceeds for the next month to the families of the deceased and living victims. And a New York man launched an online fundraiser to benefit Shaw that had raised $175,000 from more than...

At the time, deputies said Reinking believed Swift was stalking him, hacked his phone and had climbed a building to chase him. He...

After the arrest, his Illinois firearms authorization was revoked and local Illinois police seized four weapons. The firearms were given back to his family. “Among the weapons seized by those authorities was the AR-15 rifle used at the...
