Cops are investigating a video that shows revelers kicking and jumping on an NYPD squad car in what may be a celebration gone wild after the West Indian Day parade, police said. Though law enforcement sources said there is a possibility the mayhem occurred during Monday’s parade in Brooklyn, officials could not confirm the time or place that the video showing a horde of young men wrecking the patrol car was shot. The 15-second clip ends in a cloud of smoke and some partiers sitting on the top of the car. Police sources said that the patrol car may have

The United Nations is warning of floods, storms and searing heat from Arizona to Zambia within four decades, as part of a series of imagined weather forecasts released on Monday for a campaign publicising a UN climate summit. "Miami South Beach is under water," one forecaster says in a first edition of "weather reports from the future", a series set in 2050 and produced by companies including Japan´s NHK, the US Weather Channel and ARD in Germany. The UN World Meteorological Organization, which invited well-known television presenters to make videos to be issued before the summit on 23 September, said the scenarios

Hey, did you hear about the Republican governor running for president in 2016 who just hired two of the GOP consultants conservatives loathe the most? I bet you thought I was referring to “Republican in Name Only” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. If only I were. Sadly, and mystifyingly, I’m talking about Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Yes, the man of the hour Rick Perry. (snip) So of course, being that he’s a Republican politician and all, Mr. Perry had to go and ruin it just as we were beginning to buy in. Stop me if you’ve heard that one before.

An Oklahoma City police dog killed while helping his partner catch a knife-wielding thief has been laid to rest with full honors. More than 1,000 people and dozens of service dogs attended the funeral service last week for Kye, a 3-year-old Belgian German Shepherd that was stabbed to death by the suspect. Kye’s partner since serving on the police department´s K-9 unit, Sgt. Ryan Stark, shed tears and expressed a final farewell to the dog before his flag-draped coffin was buried and the canine was given out a 21-gun salute. Kye was injured while Stark was responding to a stolen

Washington - US Secretary of State John Kerry will meet Palestinian negotiators on Wednesday in Washington to discuss the ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and other issues, the State Department said. Kerry was also expected to speak with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by telephone on Tuesday before meeting Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters. The fresh talks - Kerry´s first face-to-face meeting with the Palestinians since late July - comes as the Palestinians say they will put forward a resolution later this month to the United Nations to set a three-year deadline for the end of

Nearly three-fourths of Americans favor letting the Washington Redskins keep their nickname, but the percentage who think it should be changed has tripled in the past two decades, according to a poll conducted by Langer Research for "Outside the Lines." Nearly a quarter (23 percent) of Americans surveyed now think the name should be changed, up from 8 percent in 1992 and up 9 percentage points in the past year alone. The poll of 1,019 Americans, conducted on landlines and cellphones between Aug. 20 and Aug. 24, found that 71 percent favor keeping the nickname -- but that´s down from 89 percent

The decision whether to re-name the JFK Center in Willingboro in honor of President Obama has been drawing national attention. Opinions about the name change have been all over social media and large crowds came out on Tuesday to weigh-in. FOX 29´s Lauren Johnson reports. It started as an idea for a former school, now a community center, to undergo a name change. “This has been JFK High School, now it´s the JFK center,” said one attendee.

Obama OKs deployment of
350 more troops to Baghdad

President Obama approved sending 350 additional troops to the Iraqi capital to increase security at the Baghdad embassy compound and its support facilities. The Pentagon said late Tuesday that the new personnel will build upon previous deployments that were announced in June, boosting security in Iraq up to about 820 people. The forces are expected to provide security for the State Department, as the U.S. military continues to carry out airstrikes on Islamic State militants in Iraq. "The additional joint forces will come from within the U.S. Central Command area of operations and will include a headquarters element, medical personnel, associated helicopters, and

Military Abandons Some
Combat Dogs Overseas

In his USA Today column, Jonah Goldberg exposes a national disgrace I was completely unaware of, one that is almost too heartbreaking to comprehend: the United State military sometimes reclassifies combat dogs as "equipment" and abandons them to languish in shelters overseas in war zones. Other than the fact that combat dogs save an average of 150 American lives during their service, these living creatures form strong emotional attachments to the men assigned to them. But when their time is up -- when they become too old, combat fatigued or shall-shocked to be useful in combat -- rather than transport

Obama’s herky-jerky leadership

The word of the day is herky-jerky, which is a polite way of saying erratic. And which, I regret to report, is a fitting description of President Obama’s handling of immigration. And, I regret even more, a metaphor for his stumbling stewardship. o recap and add perspective: The country’s immigration policy is broken, with 11 million undocumented immigrants forced to live in the shadows. That this situation endures is the fault of House Republicans who, captive to a gerrymandered, cable-inflamed populace that greets every reasonable solution with cries of “amnesty,” have rejected any comprehensive solution. This recalcitrance may be rational,

The rising tensions with Russia over its aggression in Ukraine is creating national security concerns inside the Pentagon, where the military’s largest satellite program is reliant on a rocket engine produced by Moscow. The Air Force said it has begun looking for alternatives to the RD-180 rocket engines for its Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle program — the fourth largest line item in the U.S. defense budget — now that Russia has threatened to cut off the technology in its -for-tat struggle with the U.S. Lawmakers and national security analysts said they were aghast that the military allowed itself to become

The family of a South Carolina teenager who was ordered to remove his makeup before taking a driver´s license photo this year has filed a federal lawsuit against the state Department of Motor Vehicles, according to court records. Chase Culpepper, a 16-year-old who identifies as male but wears makeup and women´s clothing on a regular basis, was ordered to remove his makeup by DMV officials when he tried to obtain his driver´s license in March. The agency argued that Chase was, in effect, attempting to disguise his appearance by not appearing as a male. The New York-based Transgender Legal

From Russia to Syria to Iraq to al Qaeda, President Obama and his aides have underestimated the motives and capabilities of U.S. adversaries. With regard to some, the Obama team initially characterized bad actors as U.S. partners, such as in the cases of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad. In other instances, Mr. Obama ridiculed as a “JV team” the rampaging Islamic State terrorist group, said al Qaeda was “on the run” and declared Iraq secure as he pulled out all troops against the military’s advice. “I think, unfortunately, that the Obama administration has put a higher

Beijing — More foreign firms are feeling unwelcome in China, the American Chamber of Commerce in China said as it released the results of a survey about the business climate in the world´s second-largest economy. The lobbying group said Tuesday that 60% of 163 respondents to its poll said they feel less welcome in China than before. That is up from 41% in a survey released late last year. Nearly half of the respondents also believe that foreign companies are being singled out in recent government campaigns investigating pricing practices and corruption, up from 40% in the 2013 survey.

Brooklyn cops were ordered to ignore blatantly illegal liquor sales inside three junkyards that were turned into open-air nightclubs — drawing thousands of rowdy revelers who vomited and urinated in the streets during the Labor Day weekend, The Post has learned. A 25-year-old man who was at one of the parties tied to the West Indian Day Parade was critically injured by two drunken men who followed him outside and stabbed him with a broken beer bottle. While the junkyard parties have been operating illegally for several years, cops cracked down and shut them all about three weeks ago,

Key hearing on Detroit´s historic

Detroit will not recover, and it may not survive as a major city if its debts are not significantly reduced during bankruptcy, a city attorney told a federal judge at the start of a critical phase of the case on Tuesday. As Detroit´s state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr looked on in the courtroom, Bruce Bennett, an attorney for the city, sought to convince Judge Steven Rhodes that Detroit´s 1,034-page plan to adjust $18 billion of debt would save the city. "There is no doubt, your honor, that progress has been made, but Detroit is still a city in distress," said

When Donald Sterling had to sell the Los Angeles Clippers because he was caught on tape saying he didn’t want his mistress bringing black people to his basketball games, many people cheered. But if you had paid much attention to Sterling prior to the TMZ-leaked audio, you probably didn’t cheer—not because you weren’t troubled by Sterling’s comments, but because Sterling’s downfall over those particular comments felt a bit anticlimactic. (Snip) At a recent service, Ms. Osteen commented that, when we offer God our obedience and worship, we do this for the sake of our own happiness rather than for the

In just the last five or six years the world has been fundamentally transformed. Instead of the old accustomed Western-inspired postwar global order, crafted and ensured by the United States and its European and Japanese partners, there is now mostly chaos, from Ukraine to Syria to the South China Sea. Or, rather, there may be emerging new rules, given that we are still frozen in a Wild West moment, when everyone in the saloon has drawn his six-shooter, paused, and is wondering what happened to the sheriff — and wondering, too, who will be the first to dare start shooting.

Fox News analyst Brit Hume noted on Tuesday that, despite public opposition to a new fight in Iraq, ISIS risks awakening a “sleeping giant” if their brutal beheadings and other atrocities spur angry Americans to advocate war against the Islamic radicals. Hume spoke with Fox’s Bret Baier about the Tuesday release of a second video showing the savage decapitation of American journalist Steven Sotloff by an ISIS fighter. “What about the political power of this image?” Baier asked. “What does that mean here in the U.S.?” “Well the American military is, at the moment, kind of a sleeping giant, and

If they did a remake today, they would replace Dukakis’s picture on the wall with one of another Massachusetts governor: Mitt Romney. Talk of a Romney 2016 run is heating up.

Charles Krauthammer has no consoling words for President Obama in the wake of a second American journalist beheaded by the Islamic State. Scolding the president’s refusal to call Islamic State terrorists anything but “extremists,” Krauthammer called the president “a man in denial, on the verge of delusion.” “Here’s a man who comes into office and denies the existence of a war on terror,” said Krauthammer on Special Report. “And what do we see?” Krauthammer then proceeded to list attacks by Islamic jihadists in Somalia, Nigeria, Niger, Libya, Yemen, and, of course, Syria and Iraq. “It’s everywhere.

The White House just announced that President Obama authorized hundreds of extra troops on the ground to protect the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement that that the Defense Department authorization stemmed from a State Department request for “approximately 350 additional U.S. military personnel to protect our diplomatic facilities and personnel.” “This action was taken at the recommendation of the Department of Defense after an extensive interagency review, and is part of the President’s commitment to protect our personnel and facilities in Iraq as we continue to support the Government of Iraq in
