Todd Starnes: Air Force attacked after volunteers partner with Salvation Army to help needy families

Today 09:54 GMT

“We have no issue with the Salvation Army per se here as the total fault lies with the Air Force commanders who are effectively ordering their subordinates to assist the Salvation Army,” Weinstein told me. “The Salvation Army is not at fault in this scenario.”

How sad that the cold-hearted Grinches who lurk in the dark shadows of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation's headquarters got their tinsel in a twist because airmen wanted to make sure needy children would be able to celebrate Christmas.

Outrage at 'anti-democratic' bomb blast at Athens TV station

Tuesday 12:40 GMT

As the debt-stricken country has navigated its worst economic crisis in modern history – applying excoriating austerity in return for three international bailouts to stay afloat – attacks have increased again in recent years.

The calls provided enough time for no one to be injured, police said, describing the early Monday bomb blast as “especially powerful”. The force of the blast was such that windows as high as the sixth floor were blown out of the glass-fronted building housing the two organisations.

Strikes kill 62 al-Shabab fighters, US says

Tuesday 02:25 GMT

The group retained control over large parts of the country, and the ability to carry out high-profile attacks using suicide bombers, explosive devices, mortars and small arms, the report added.

Somalia-based security think tank the Hiraal Institute said in a report published in November that al-Shabab had been forced to change tactics following the upsurge in air strikes. The institute said the group was now conducting fewer mass attacks on military bases, but attacks on government offices and businesses which refused to pay it taxes had increased markedly.

Why Trump's attacks on SNL are seriously dangerous

Tuesday 02:24 GMT

On Sunday, after SNL ran an It's a Wonderful Life parody about the Trump administration, the president woke up and began complaining on Twitter.

That's why Trump targets SNL now: If you're not a fan, maybe you want to shrug and wait for a more noble cause to come along. The administration went after Jim Acosta a few weeks ago not just because White House officials dislike the CNN correspondent, but because they knew Acosta's occasional grandstanding can make other journalists uncomfortable — the administration wanted to see if it could divide the press corps into journalists more and less deserving of First Amendment protections.

PewDiePie printer hackers strike again

Tuesday 02:24 GMT

The stunt was first carried out last month, when one member claimed to have forced about 50,000 printers to create posters supporting his favourite vlogger PewDiePie.

Over recent months, the Indian music label and movie studio T-Series has come close to overtaking his lead, which has led some PewDiePie fans to mount stunts to attract new subscribers.
