    A Denver-bound United Airlines flight had to turn back and return to Dulles International Airport after an unruly passenger allegedly charged toward the cockpit. According to multiple reports, the passenger was subdued by several passengers near first class before he made it to the cockpit, the Post reports. A Reddit user whose father was on the plane posted pictures and a video of the incident and says that the passenger in question "was screaming and sprinting towards the cockpit" before he was tackled and subdued by "several large passengers." A government official with "direct knowledge of the incident" told CNN...
  • Citizens United Wins At The 10th Circuit Court Of Appeals

    Washington, DC – Citizens United won at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals today in Citizens United v. Gessler. Earlier this month, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Citizens United in its emergency injunction. Today the 10th Circuit rebuked the lower Court’s ruling, and found that Citizens United's latest documentary Rocky Mountain Heist is constitutionally protected speech. This eye-opening documentary about the liberal takeover of once-Red Colorado was released after the emergency injunction was granted. “The 10th Circuit once again embraced the First Amendment today with its ruling in favor of Citizens United,” said David N....

    A plane from Washington D.C.'S Dulles International Airport has been grounded at Columbia Metropolitan Airport due to a sick passenger on board, according a spokesperson for the Columbia Metropolitan Airport.

A nosebleed is a symptom of advanced Ebola, a deadly virus that has killed nearly 5,000 worldwide, including one victim in the United States. Caution is high because of recent outbreaks of the disease in Dallas, and a confirmed case of the virus in New York announced...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | July 12, 2014 | Maya Srikrishnan
    A United Airlines flight carrying 348 people from Honolulu to Guam was diverted to the tiny Pacific island of Midway because of a “mechanical issue,” the airline said Saturday. An electrical odor filled the Boeing 777 aircraft and the airline was reviewing the mechanical problem that caused the diversion that occurred Thursday night local time. Midway Island — a remote, 2.4-square-mile atoll — is located about 1,300 miles northwest of Hawaii and was the site of an important U.S. military base during World War II. It is now home to a national wildlife refuge and has roughly 60 residents.

UnitedHealth said it had notified state regulators that it would leave the state's individual market at year-end and force about 8,000 customers to find new coverage. Last month, Aetna Inc., the nation's third-largest health insurer, made a similar move affecting about 50,000 existing policyholders. Both companies will keep a major presence in California, focusing instead on large and small employers.(Health Care Law comes to California)

    YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — The U.S. government faces a $1.4 million fine for damage caused to a Philippines national park when the minesweeper USS Guardian ran aground on a coral reef in January, Philippine officials said Monday. The fine total, converted from 58.4 million Philippine pesos, is based on a 2009 law detailing fines based on total area damaged, unauthorized entry and other violations. A statement from Tubbataha Reefs National Park superintendent Angelique Songco called the fine just a “slap on the wrist.” “However, we respect the rule of law, and this is the fine stipulated,” Songco said in...

United quietly made the policy shift in late April and joins other airlines including American Airlines and US Airways that have dropped family pre-boarding. The airline says the move was "to simplify the boarding process and to reduce the overall number of boarding groups," United spokesman Charles Hobart told USA Today. Previously, families with small children flying coach were allowed on aircraft before general boarding -- a convenience for parents to get their children and...

The plan would create a new federal bureaucracy, the Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities, armed with some $4 billion in federal grants, to pressure local...
