House Speaker Paul Ryan says he doesn’t care that Donald Trump continues to tweet outlandish claims as president-elect as long as Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress get things done when he’s in the Oval Office. “That’s what’s going to matter at the end of the day,” Ryan said in an interview that aired on CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday. It was a stunning claim as there is no evidence of significant voter fraud.

The fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 received a hero’s welcome from American enthusiasts. Back in 2014, the special edition muscle car famously clocked a 7m 37s wet lap of the Nürburgring, faster than dry times for the Lamborghini Murciélago and contemporary Porsche 911 Carrera S. No wonder the initial run of Z/28s sold out before arriving at dealerships. Trouble is, Chevy also limited production to 500 units that first model year, which means lots of people missed the boat.

The judge in the murder trial of a white former South Carolina policeman accused of shooting an unarmed black suspect in the back declared a mistrial Monday after the jury said it was deadlocked. The jury had indicated on Friday that it was within one vote of returning a guilty verdict against Michael Slager in the killing of Walter Scott after the 50-year-old fled a traffic stop and struggled with the officer on April 4, 2015 in North Charleston. Lawyers for Slager -- who could have been convicted of either murder and voluntary manslaughter -- argued that Scott's disregard for authority, aberrant behavior and aggressive actions justified the deadly encounter.
Ohio lawmakers approved a bill that bans abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks after conception, clearing the way for one of the most stringent abortion restrictions in the United States if it becomes law. The Republican-led state House of Representatives and Senate passed the so-called "heartbeat" measure late on Tuesday, sending it to be signed into law by Republican Governor John Kasich. Kasich, an abortion opponent, has in the past questioned whether such legislation would be constitutional.

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to drive both a Hellcat (Charger or Challenger) and Jeep Wrangler, you can certainly appreciate each vehicle's individual capability. The Hellcat and its pavement-scorching 707 horsepower is scary fun and always good for a few smiles and close calls. It's also common knowledge that the Jeep Wrangler is arguably the most capable off-road vehicle from the factory. But what if you could have both in one vehicle?

Despite losing an increasing amount of territory in strategic areas in both Middle East countries, a new ISIS spokesperson has insisted the terror group will come out on the winning end. The person who was previously identified as ISIS' official spokesperson was killed after a September airstrike in Raqaa, Syria, where the group had established its de facto capital.
A South Carolina judge declared a mistrial Monday after a jury deadlocked in the murder trial of a white former police officer charged in the shooting death of an unarmed black motorist. A panel of one black and 11 white jurors — who had seemed close to a verdict to convict Friday, with apparently only one holdout — said Monday they were unable to reach a unanimous decision after deliberating more than 22 hours over four days. "We as a jury regret to inform the court that despite the best efforts of all parties we are unable to come to a unanimous decision," said Circuit Judge Clifton Newman, reading a note from the jury before declaring a mistrial.

By Michael Holden and Estelle Shirbon LONDON (Reuters) - The British government launched a Supreme Court battle on Monday over who has the power to trigger the formal process of leaving the European Union, seeking to overturn a legal ruling that could derail its Brexit strategy. With passions inflamed by the June vote to leave the EU, demonstrators gathered outside the court as it began hearing the government's appeal against a ruling that ministers needed parliament's assent before triggering the complex process. The High Court ruled last month that Prime Minister Theresa May could not trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and begin two years of Brexit talks with the 27 remaining EU members without parliamentary backing.
