Most Americans are familiar with the prestige that surrounds the United States military service academies. Various names and phrases, spoken like solemn incantations, attest to their sacrosanct status: the Point, the Long Gray Line, Annapolis, cadets. Their graduates constitute a who’s who of American greatness, including Ulysses Grant, Jimmy Carter, novelist James Salter and sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein, to name a few. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, in a 1962 address at West Point, typified the veneration when he told the cadets that they were “the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense.” The service academies

U.S. President Barack Obama has been accused of being disrespectful, after being caught chewing gum during the Republic Day parade in India. A photo of the president removing the gum from his mouth before popping it back in, has been shared across Twitter. At the time, Indian Prime Minister Nardndra Modi appears to be trying to explain something to the president. Twitter user Shobhaa De wrote: ´Barack bahi working his jaws overtime and chewing gum! At least it´s isn´t gutka. But seriously - gum during a formal parade?´ American media have said Obama was most probably chewing Nicorette.

It would be hard to overstate how poorly things are going for the United States around the world. Iran moves steadily toward acquiring nuclear weapons, with the apparent approval of the Obama administration. Iraq, once hailed as one of the Obama administration’s greatest successes by Joe Biden, is now largely occupied by ISIS. The carnage in Syria continues. The government of Yemen, a key ally in the war against Islamic terror, has fallen. In Nigeria, Boko Haram slaughters thousands and now controls much of Africa’s richest country. And Russia continues to chip away at Ukraine. Let’s pause on this one for

The total haul for the Warner Bros. film now stands at $200.1 million. “We’ve never quite seen anything like this at this time of year,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at box-office tracker Rentrak. “‘American Sniper’ is helping to

Fox News, a usually staunch supporter of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, changed its tone on Friday when anchor Chris Wallace and host Shepard Smith expressed harsh criticism of the prime minister´s decision to speak before the US Congress in March, without the prior arrangement of the White House and just a couple of weeks before the Israeli election. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner extended the invitation to Netanyahu on Wednesday and the Prime Minister´s speech on Capitol Hill is expected to focus on the need for increased sanctions against Iran, as well as on Islamist extremism.

Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said Sunday that terrorists are "using religion as a mask" to advance their "political motives," and compared the attacks on the Islamic faith in the U.S. to the way the country talks about race. "They are using religion as a mask to act on their political motives and trying to control people and cause all this mayhem," Abdul-Jabbar said on NBC´s "Meet the Press." He said aggressors who say they follow Islam have "this insane idea about what religious life is about and they are getting the world to buy it that this is what Islam
