In June, Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared on the cover of People magazine for the first time in more than a decade. Real people, not the magazine, talked about what the article might mean for 2016. They talked about whether Clinton was using a walker (she wasn't). They talked about people talking about whether Clinton was using a walker (She still wasn't).
What they didn't do was buy the magazine. According to a report from AdWeek on Monday, the June 16 issue of People featuring the former first lady and senator was the magazine's worst selling of 2014 with 503,890 copies sold. The magazine's best-selling issue --1,169,800 copies -- was the one featuring Robin Williams after his death in late August.

“It is not only a question of increased … flights but it’s the way they’re conducting the flights. They are not filing their flight plans and they are not communicating with civilian air traffic control and they are not turning on their transponders,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference on Monday.NATO said its aircraft have intercepted more than 400 Russian flights this year, a 50 percent increase from 2013.
“That poses a risk to civilian air traffic. The important thing is that NATO stays vigilant and that we intercept the Russian flights.”
Russia denied its aircraft had posed any hazard to the airliner
A federal court judge in Pennsylvania on Tuesday ruled parts of President Barack Obama's executive immigration orders unconstitutional, accusing him of bypassing Congress in granting deportation relief and work permits to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants.
The decision, by Judge Arthur Schwab in Pittsburgh, dismisses the White House's legal reasoning in granting the orders, which Obama announced in a prime-time speech on cable television on Nov. 20.
Schwab's ruling, described by The Washington Times as "scathing," said the president has the authority to issue executive orders and interpret the law. But "Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution..." Schwab wrote, according to The Times.
The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s horrific attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, Pakistan. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims, their families, and loved ones. By targeting students and teachers in this heinous attack, terrorists have once again shown their depravity. We stand with the people of Pakistan, and reiterate the commitment of the United States to support the Government of Pakistan in its efforts to combat terrorism and extremism and to promote peace and stability in the region.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Tuesday took his most definitive step yet toward running for president, announcing plans to "actively explore" a campaign and form a new political operation allowing him to raise money for like-minded Republicans.
In a holiday message posted on Bush's Facebook page and Twitter account, the son and brother of past Republican presidents said he discussed the "future of our nation" and a potential bid for the White House with members of his family over the Thanksgiving holiday.
"As a result of these conversations and thoughtful consideration of the kind of strong leadership I think America needs, I have decided to actively explore the possibility of running for president of the United States," Bush wrote.
He added, "In the coming months, I hope to visit with many of you and have a conversation about restoring the promise of America."
Kristy Campbell, a spokeswoman for Bush, 61, said he has not yet made a final decision on whether to seek the Republican Party's presidential nomination in 2016. She said that he will announce his decision next year "after gauging support" for a run.
Support for the use of unmanned drone aircraft to kill suspected terrorists overseas is the highest it's been in over two years, but voters still express concern about innocent civilians killed in such attacks.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 71% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the United States’ use of drone aircraft to kill al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists overseas.
That’s up from 63% a year ago but is still down from a high of 76% in February 2012 after President Obama first acknowledged the drone program’s existence.
Just 12% oppose the use of drones to kill terrorists in other countries, while 17% remain undecided
"Cruz is a very interesting guy. You heard in that clip, he said, you have to decide if you want to stand with the administration or with the American people. His idea of conservatism is standing with making a statement, rather than doing something. Now, there was no way the objection he was raising over the weekend was going to anything, anything at all to stop the president's executive order. A 12 year old with a piece of chalk and a blackboard could have drawn a graph showing that was impossible"...
