    Sec. of Defense James Mattis, known for his frank quotes about the realities of war, offered up a line befitting his nickname, “Mad Dog,” during an interview airing Sunday. “What keeps you awake at night?” CBS “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson asked Mattis. “Nothing,” a stonefaced Mattis responded. “I keep other people awake at night.”

    The Palestinian Authority's International Relations Department in Ramallah condemned Israel's "empiralistic calls" to annex Area C, warning such a move may have "dangerous consequences" and would destroy any chance of a "Palestinian" state. "We have been told that the right-wing leadership of Israel is calling to annex what is called the settlement blocs in area C of Judea and Samaria. The first areas they wish to annex are those around Jerusalem. This is in order to begin a discussion amongst the Israeli public not about ending the occupation but about making it stronger and applying Israeli law to Palestinian areas,"...
  • Democrats wonder and worry: Why isn’t Clinton far ahead of Trump?

    NEW YORK — With Election Day less than two months away, Democrats are increasingly worried that Hillary Clinton has not built a formidable lead against Donald Trump despite his historic weaknesses as a national party candidate. Even the Democratic nominee’s advisers acknowledge that she must make changes, and quickly. Clinton leads Trump by a mere three percentage points, having fallen from her high of nine points in August, according to the latest Real Clear Politics average. That tightening has frustrated many Clinton allies and operatives, who are astonished that she isn’t running away with this race given Trump’s deep unpopularity...

    KINGSTON New Hampshire (Reuters) - As President Barack Obama considers sidestepping Congress to loosen U.S. immigration policy, a Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Americans are deeply worried that illegal immigration is threatening the nation's culture and economy. Seventy percent of Americans - including 86 percent of Republicans - believe undocumented immigrants threaten traditional U.S. beliefs and customs, according to the poll. The findings suggest immigration could join Obamacare - the healthcare insurance overhaul - and the economy as hot button issues that encourage more Republicans to vote in November's congressional election. With Congress failing to agree on broad immigration reforms, Obama could...

    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,...
  • Sanford Business Owners Worry Trayvon Martin Rally Could Hurt Business

    SANFORD, Fla. — The cries for justice in the case of slain teen Trayvon Martin was killed continue on Friday. The NAACP has planned another march for Trayvon through part of Sanford on Saturday, and some downtown business owners said they are furious. They told WFTV the rally could scare shoppers away on their busiest day of the week. The rally will start at a school and will end at police headquarters, which are blocks away from downtown Sanford. Christine Johns was happy to see her first customer of the day, but it was hours after she opened her antique...

    It sounds like the start of a bad joke: Barry Diller, Tina Brown and Sidney Harman walk into a (coffee) bar… …And walk out with a Frankenstein merger of their unprofitable media ventures. News-and-culture website Daily Beast and Newsweek magazine, which the 92-year-old Harman took off the Washington Post Co.’s hands this summer, are merging into a joint venture called Newsweek Daily Beast Company. Brown writes in a Daily Beast post that the three of them — the media-and-Internet mogul, the diva editor and the nonagenarian stereo magnate, respectively – agreed over a mug of coffee to mash together their...
  • Obama spokesman says Democrats could lose House

    President Barack Obama's party could lose its House majority in this fall's elections, his spokesman said Sunday, perhaps trying to jolt Democratic voters with the specter of GOP lawmakers rolling back White House policies. "I think there's no doubt there are enough seats in play that could cause Republicans to gain control. There's no doubt about that," press secretary Robert Gibbs told NBC's "Meet the Press." Democrats now hold a 255-178 edge in the House, with two vacancies in the 435-member chamber. Anywhere from 40 to perhaps 60 House seats could be competitive by the fall. Republicans would need to...

    (RNS) As Sholom Rubashkin sits in an Iowa jail awaiting a possible life sentence on fraud charges related to his now-defunct kosher meat business, his ultra-Orthodox Jewish support base has ramped up protests over his case. Through an online petition, media outreach, Facebook pages and Twitter feeds, some rabbis have called it a "sacred obligation" for Jews to contact the Justice Department before Rubashkin's April 28 sentencing. While their grassroots efforts stop short of claiming anti-Semitism against the former CEO of Agriprocessors--the Postville, Iowa plant where a 2008 government raid found hundreds of undocumented workers--they believe some discrimination has occurred....

    BEIJING (Reuters) – Premier Wen Jiabao held out the prospect of extra stimulus spending if needed to hit China's 8 percent growth goal this year and called on Washington to ease worries Beijing has about the safety of its vast U.S. assets. In his annual news conference ending the nine-day session of China's ceremonial parliament, Wen on Friday reaffirmed China's commitment to keeping the yuan broadly steady and noted that the currency, far from having depreciated, had been rising in value. Wen, who fielded questions for well over two hours, said the 8 percent growth target was a measure of...

    NEW YORK – The stock market is plunging, with the Dow Jones industrials skidding 400 points as investors show their frustration with a lack of details about the government's latest bank bailout plan. Financial stocks are leading the market lower, reflecting Wall Street's growing concerns about the government's ability to restore the health of the banking industry. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner announced the broad outlines of the plan. But investors, who want to know among other things how banks' soured mortgage assets will be valued, are showing their disapproval at the lack of details by selling. The Dow is down...

    Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or about your body what you will wear. Life is more than food and the body more than clothes.” Luke 12:22-23 As I write this on the last day of November 2008, it is becoming more and more apparent that the United States (and many parts of the world) is headed into some financial troubles (which may prove to be the understatement of the year). Housing, manufacturing, automobile, insurance and banking industries are all struggling and it’ll probably get worse...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks dropped on Wednesday as bleak economic data fed worries that despite all the efforts to unlock credit markets, the economy is unlikely to avoid recession. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke further fueled those concerns when he said the economy faced a significant threat. The benchmark Standard & Poor's 500 stock index slid more than 7 percent to its intraday low, while the Dow shed more than 500 points to its lowest point for the session so far. U.S. retail sales in September dropped the most in more than three years, while a measure of New...

    I have spent a great deal of time today on the various conservative blogs, reading up on how John McCain's vote is "the deathknell" of his campaign. I have read on various conservative blogs that Sarah Palin supposedly has no chance because the deck is stacked against her, whether from the "Ifill Tower" or the "Couric Courant". I have read the reactions of people who are willing to hold back their votes, all because John McCain voted for a bailout bill. I have becomed sickened by what I have seen in recent days, not only from those on the left...

    Planning an eco-friendly wedding just underlines how committed Jamie Hanson and Mark Hamlyn are to living an environmentally respectful life. "Sometimes we choose things that are not absolutely perfect, but we do our absolute best," says Hamlyn. An operations manager at Suncor in Fort McMurray with a degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Alberta, Hamlyn, 37, met Hanson while on the job. "He wandered into my office to thank the girl I shared an office with for recommending someone to hire and we got to talking," remembers Hanson. Hanson, 32, works for TransAlta Utilities, Suncor's partner, as manager...
