1. You're out — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee were cut Thursday from the main stage of the fourth GOP primary debate, scheduled to air on Fox Business Network next week. The candidates, who went up against the frontrunners in all three prior debates, failed to average the required 2.5 percent in the four recent polls that were used for consideration. Christie and Huckabee will join former Sen. Rick Santorum and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal in the undercard debate prior to the mainstage event. (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

2. Metrojet plane crash — Russian, Egyptian, U.K., and U.S. officials are still working to determine what made Metrojet Flight 9268 break up in mid-air, causing it to come crashing down in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Saturday, presumably killing all 224 people aboard. U.K. and U.S. authorities have said it appears more than likely that a bomb placed by ISIS or its affiliates took the plane down, but Russia and Egypt insist there is not enough evidence to support that theory.

3. Bush slam — In excerpts from the upcoming Jon Meacham biography of George H. W. Bush released to the media late Wednesday, the former president comes out swinging against former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former Vice President Dick Cheney, criticizing their service to his son, former President George W. Bush. He feels they were too "hawkish, taking a harsh, inflexible stance that tarnished America's reputation around the world," according to Fox News.

4. Kerry kills Keystone XL Pipeline — Here, the Keystone Steele City pumping station, into which the planned Keystone XL pipeline was to connect to, is seen in Steele City, Nebraska on Tuesday. On the recommendation of Secretary of State John Kerry, President Barack Obama on Friday rejected a proposal for the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

5. Conservatives dominate Election Day — Kentucky Republican Gov.-elect Matt Bevin and his wife Glenna react to the cheers of supporters during his introduction at the Republican Party victory celebration on Tuesday. Voters delivered major defeats to liberal ballot initiatives and liberal office-seekers across the country this week, making Election Day 2015 a clear win for conservatives. Some highlights: Bevin became the second Republican in 40 years to be elected Kentucky governor; Ohio voted no on marijuana; and Houston's LGBT-focused Equal Rights Ordinance was defeated. (AP Photo/Timothy D.

6. Fred Thompson dies — The Tennessee lawyer, U.S. Senator, and well-known actor died Sunday at age 73 following a recurrence of lymphoma. Best known for his role on "Law & Order," Thompson's bid for president in 2008 fizzled. But, according to Newsmax's chief political columnist and White House correspondent John Gizzi, had he run a decade earlier, he may easily have been on the ticket. (Alex Wong/Getty Images for "Meet the Press")  

7. Illinois cop's death ruled a suicide — Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, whose September death sparked a massive manhunt for three suspects, in fact plotted a "carefully staged suicide," authorities announced this week. The Fox Lake lieutenant had reportedly been stealing and laundering money for seven years through his department's youth Police Explorer program. On Thursday it was revealed that Gliniewicz even tried to order a hit on a village administrator who may have been about to discover his criminal acts.

8. Taco Bell exec fired for Uber driver attack — Taco Bell executive Benjamin Golden was fired Tuesday for allegedly attacking an Uber driver last week in a videotaped incident that could land him a year in jail if he's convicted of the four assault charges brought against him. (YouTube)

9. Kenya sweeps the New York Marathon — Mary Keitany (L) and Stanley Biwott of Kenya pose together after winning the women's and men's divisions of the 2015 New York City Marathon in New York's Central Park on Sunday. (Mike Segar/Reuters)
