The Defense Department has opened an investigation to explain how about 50 ISIS-affiliated fighters were able to ambush a 12-man Green Beret-led team and why the team lacked sufficient support to ward off the attack.

    He was a nocturnal creature who gambled all night and slept all day. He took Valium at times for anxiousness, and had the doctor who prescribed it to him on retainer. He wagered up to a million dollars a night, but wandered around glitzy Las Vegas casinos in sweatpants and flip-flops, and carried his own drink into the high rollers’ area because he didn’t want to tip the waitresses too much. This was Stephen Paddock as he saw himself four […]

To help speed tax reform, Republican leaders in the House and Senate worked with the White House to craft a technical amendment that would clear the way […]

    Military Veterans Deploy Themselves to Puerto Rico to Help With Relief Efforts.

    The cavalry is here, at an abandoned airport in the far west of Puerto Rico. Not a traditional military unit, but a bunch of guys who call themselves the Warfighter Disaster Response Team. They’re veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and when they see a need, they just go. Red tape frustrates them, especially when people are hurting and they can help, so they deploy themselves — for free. They’ve made an abandoned airport in Mayaguez their base, […]
