    Jon Stewart is Literally Speechless Over Huckabee Comments

    NEW YORK — Jon Stewart is one of TV’s most outspoken media critics, but at one point during Monday’s “Daily Show” the host literally had nothing to say. During the second segment on the “Daily Show,” Stewart reacted to Mike Huckabee’s controversial comments comparing the Iran Deal to the Holocaust by only contorting his face and gesticulating wildly. That’s right, Stewart didn’t say anything more than a few indiscernible noises. Instead the host shook his head, smiled, looked angry, and […]

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Peering at the drawn-out look on former Vice President Dick Cheney’s face and the expressions of other top Bush Administration officials, former 9/11 Commission Vice Chairman Lee Hamilton remembers the feelings of the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks which shaped the nation. “They were serious, somber, saddened, and almost immediately beginning to think ‘How do we respond to this?'” said Hamilton, a former Democratic Indiana congressman and leader in the national security and intelligence communities, in […]

    Coast Guard Vows Aggressive Search for Missing Florida Teens

    Finding the boat that two Florida teens took fishing was a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the 14-year-old boys were not with the boat, and remain missing. But on the other hand, knowing the boat’s location is helping crews to recalculate and refocus their searches, said Capt. Mark Fedor, chief of response for the Coast Guard 7th District. “Our intentions are to continue to search aggressively. As of midnight tonight, we’ll have executed 32 different searches, covering over 27,000 […]

  • The U.S. stock market is having a rough go. Monday is the fifth straight day of losses for stocks. While there hasn't been a massive drop to make headlines, there's been a steady bleed with the Dow shedding about 100 points each day.

    ‘Extreme Fear’ is Back for the Stock Market

    NEW YORK, New York — Extreme fear is back in the stock market, according to CNNMoney’s Fear & Greed Index. Just how bad is it? The index has a 100 point scale — with 0 indicating nightmare level fear and 100 signaling “buy everything in sight” greed. On Monday, the Fear & Greed Index fell to 7. What’s especially alarming is that the index was reading 36 only a week ago. Investors were somewhat on edge last Monday, but certainly […]

  • China's Shanghai Composite index dropped 8.5% on Monday, July 27, 2015, a bone-rattling decline that raises questions about the government's ability to prevent a crash. Beijing managed to stabilize markets with a dramatic rescue in late June and early July, intervening in a number of ways to limit losses for investors.

    Walmart Announces Infant Car Seat Designed to Prevent Hot Car Deaths

    Walmart and Evenflo announced this week a new infant car seat with technology designed to remind drivers of their backseat passengers, and stop children from dying in hot cars.

    RNC: Knock Off the Name Calling

    WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee has a message for candidates like Donald Trump: No more name-calling. That’s what the party’s chief strategist and communications director Sean Spicer said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday. “I understand it’s going to be the nature of any primary for folks to discuss the differences between themselves on policy issues, and I think that’s fine,” Spicer said. “The name calling, however, needs to stop.” Spicer added: “We have got to remember what Ronald Reagan […]
