    MADISON, Wis. - Fred Doebler and his wife paid $6,000 to go on a 15-day historical tour through WWII battlefields in Europe, set to leave on Thursday, Sept. 11. Now, the Air Force veteran from Mt. Horeb said he's be "taken to the cleaners." Doebler placed the down payment with a Boston-area tour group, Band of Brothers Tours, in March. All the company, owned by Jake Powers, has sent to him since is an itinerary from 2013 for a group that visited the battlefields of Normandy and other spots in England, France and Holland. Powers advertises the tours he provides...

But when the conversation moved to the subject of that positive test in 1999, he not only agreed with her that she had been right but went a stage further. O'Reilly always believed there was a bigger conspiracy and with her sitting before him he finally revealed the full scale of the cover-up, naming Hein Verbruggen as a central figure in his escape from punishment. Certainly, Armstrong used this opportunity to his full advantage. He...

It was Johnson's mother who helped bring Obama into the community, she said. "He used to come to our house, he used to sit at our kitchen table," Johnson said.

Ted Cruz wants President Barack Obama to know that he should “take his broken promises tour elsewhere,” according to a statement his office released Wednesday, just hours before Obama is supposed to speak in the Lone Star State. “President Obama’s trip to Texas brings nothing with it but broken promises,” the freshman Republican senator said in the statement. “He promised that Americans could keep their health care plans. We were told premiums would go down, that jobs would be created. And we now know these are all false promises.” Cruz’s comments come as the president visits Dallas to...

Both factories have been building pianos for well over a century, and although Steinway has always been at the cutting edge in utilizing and perfecting the latest technology where it could make the piano better, we have found that certain things are simply better when done by skilled craftspeople than by a machine.

Their last few shows have drawn rave reviews, and the returns on their earlier shows have been strong. But others have called it "the night of the living dead" tour, for reasons that are perhaps evident. And the Rolling Stones are already one of the wealthiest bands in the world. Their last tour grossed more than half a billion dollars. Mick Jagger is said to be worth more than $300 million, Keith Richards just a bit less....

    MSNBC host Touré, a writer and “cultural critic,” has recently been in the news for attacking Dr. Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Having insulted black Rush Limbaugh fans in the past, Touré said Dr. Carson’s “un-serious” ideas are tolerated on the right only because he can be held up as a token black friend. Now, a recent report by the Daily Caller suggests the television host has long seen the world through a racial lens. “MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending...

    MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending Emory University from 1989 to 1992. Touré’s flagship publication, The Fire This Time, lavished praise on famous anti-Semites, black supremacists, and conspiracy theorists whom Touré helped bring to campus. Before he became an intense-but-sardonic TV personality, Touré also decried “the suffocating white community” and defended a nationally famous fake hate crime. In an interview with The Daily Caller, Touré described the newspaper as “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building.”

Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe. In Prague, he said America has "a moral responsibility to act" on arms control because only the U.S. had "used a nuclear weapon." In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by "just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in...

Mitt Romney deemed the road trip, which goes through an archipelago of shuttered factories and mills, as Obama's "Magical Misery Tour", though the former governor and CEO would undoubtedly promote the same free trade policies even more fervently. Obama won Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois in 2008, but is set to lose them in 2012 if he remains on the free trade bandwagon. Last week, he visited Michigan, the epicentre of American manufacturing's decimation. A May report...

Though the excursion is packaged with humble appeal, it looks like nobody’s sleeping on the bus. The White House has reserved the entire historic Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah, Iowa, and 60 rooms at nearby Luther...

    President Obama kicks off his Midwest bus tour at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on Monday, where he’ll board the bus for a 45-minute drive down to Cannon Falls, Minn. The town, which lies halfway between the Twin Cities and Rochester, Minnesota’s two largest cities, will be the site of his first town hall. Bolstered by the job security provided by the nearby Mayo Clinic in Rochester and its proximity to the largest population center, Cannon Falls fared relatively will during the recession. Unemployment in Goodhue County hasn’t topped 8 percent in more than a year, and only rose above...

    RNC mocks Obama's 'Debt-End Bus Tour' By: CNN's Rebecca Stewart (CNN) - The Republican National Committee offered up its take on President Obama's Midwest bus tour Monday with a three-pronged press offensive including a "Press Corps Briefing Book," a web ad, and radio spots that detail what they've termed "Obama's Debt-End Bus Tour." The RNC describes the president's effort to dialogue with the public about job growth and the economy at town halls and economic forums as "a totally non-political taxpayer-funded administration event that just happens to criss-cross several battleground states critical to the president's re-election" in the Obama critique,...

    TIFFIN, Iowa (AP) -- GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich is criticizing President Barack Obama's plan to take a three-day bus tour through the Midwest to discuss the economy. The former House speaker told a Republican Party dinner in Iowa on Friday that Obama should act like a president and focus on governing rather than going on a campaign-style tour. He said Obama could call Congress into special session to pass better economic policies. Gingrich called the tour "an insult to the intelligence of every American" that will not create a single job.

    Somehow, from somewhere, a bright political strategist on the president's reelection team has come up with the idea of sending Obama out in a bus on Midwestern roads in two weeks, just like real Americans, or real Americans who can still afford a short summer road trip. The spectacle of a passing politician's bus and waving citizens provides grand visuals for TV during the usually slow summer news days. ... Not so good visuals of the trailing motorcade of press buses, Secret Service SUVs, SWAT team vans and communications cars. Nor the angry motorists stalled nearby because the highway...
