  • Mich. pastor with necrophilia fantasy charged with killing fiancee's daughter

    San Jose Mercury News ^ | November 2, 2012 | John Flesher and Ed White
    Broomfield Township, Mich. -- As police frantically worked to figure out how his fiancée's 24-year-old daughter had vanished, a Michigan pastor who had turned to God to shed his violent past went to his flock with a request to pray for her. But all along, authorities say, he knew the sordid truth about where the young mother was. The pastor, ex-convict John D. White, later confessed to killing the woman to fulfill a fantasy of necrophilia, police said Friday. White drank four or five beers before going to the woman's mobile home and repeatedly striking her head with a mallet...

    The Fayetteville Observer ^ | November 13, 2012 | Andrew Barksdale
    Both sides in the 7th Congressional District race are lining up lawyers and volunteers to monitor the final counting of provisional and absentee ballots this week. U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre, an eight-term Democrat from Lumberton, is clinging to a razor-thin margin of victory over his Republican challenger, state Sen. David Rouzer of Johnston County. An unofficial tally on Election Day gave McIntyre a 507-vote lead, out of more than 334,000 cast in that race. Since then, more absentee ballots have been counted, dropping McIntyre's unofficial lead to 420 votes, according to the State Board of Elections website Monday.

    U.S. Kosovo policy pits National Guard against Christian Serbs resisting rule by U.S.-backed Muslim Albanian mafia rewarded with independence; ethnic cleansing threatens.Always on hand to promote the American-made Muslim state of Kosovo, The Wall St. Journal praised Obama’s praise and rhapsodized in typical Slavophobic tones how in 1999 President Clinton “bypassed the United Nations and sent in the U.S. Air Force…President Bush stood up to Russian bluster and European ambivalence to push for its independence.…though Serbia and Russia have tried to undermine it.” The editorial closed with a straight-faced reference to something that elicits snickers among those in the know:...

    Humans may be gradually losing intelligence, according to a new study. The study, published today (Nov. 12) in the journal Trends in Genetics, argues that humans lost the evolutionary pressure to be smart once we started living in dense agricultural settlements several thousand years ago. "The development of our intellectual abilities and the optimization of thousands of intelligence genes probably occurred in relatively non-verbal, dispersed groups of peoples [living] before our ancestors emerged from Africa," said study author Gerald Crabtree, a researcher at Stanford University, in a statement. Since then it's all been downhill, Crabtree contends. The theory isn't without...

But a voter registration snafu in Mansfield involving the Connecticut Public Interest Research Group denied Bunda and 92 other voters, mostly UConn students, the ability to cast their ballots. Ninety-three voter registration cards that were supposed to be submitted to the Mansfield Registrar of Voters were lost in a filing cabinet and not recovered in time for the election, according to Andrea Epling, Mansfield's Democratic Registrar of Voters. Bunda, of Larchmont, N.Y., said he filled out a registration...

    Will multiple states’ non-cooperation be too much for ObamaCare? The answer, of course, is an emphatic yes, since by its very nature, ObamaCare is too much for ObamaCare, but individual states’ freedom to opt out of designing their own state-specific health insurance exchanges is turning out to be yet another flaw in the oh-so-masterful plan. Last week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that the government is extending the deadline by which states must submit their blueprints for their exchanges, meant to be tools with which consumers can shop around for insurance options, but all states must still...

    Almost 200,000 Chinese students joined North American universities in the last academic year, an increase of 23% from the previous year according to the Institute of International Education, a US nonprofit.The Chinese call them "sea turtles," the lucky few who go abroad—the US often being their first choice—for education, and then return home with better English and a broader cultural perspective to get good jobs with Western companies. (The nickname applies because sea turtles return home to lay eggs for the next generation.)China's education system emphasizes rote learning at the expense of creativity.

Point blank, he said he did not understand the hatred of socialism in this country. In response to that, I said if he didn't understand why conservatives hate socialism, then he didn't truly understand what socialism is all about. Socialism can be defined in many ways, as it has many facets. Economic socialism requires social ownership of the means of production. In other words, companies that...

    Despite uncertainty surrounding the fiscal cliff and whether or not President Obama can make "compromise" a theme of his second term, one thing is for certain: the Affordable Care Act, widely referred to as "Obamacare" is going to take effect. The lion's share of the law is to be implemented on January 1, 2014. The major tenets that will impact Americans include the individual mandate and the pre-existing conditions clause that will not allow insurers to refuse coverage to anyone, even if they are in poor health. .........................................................

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Climate change is suddenly a hot topic again. The issue is resurfacing in talks about a once radical idea: a possible carbon tax. The idea was considered so radical that in 2009, when President Barack Obama tried to pass a bill on global warming, that he instead opted for the more moderate approach of capping power plant emissions and trading credits that allowed utilities to pollute more. That idea, after passing the House, stalled in the Senate in 2010 and has been considered dead since.

The Treasury said on Tuesday the October deficit was $120 billion, larger than economist forecasts for a $114 billion gap and up from $98 billion in October of 2011. Growth in expenditures outpaced rising receipts, deepening the deficit. Outlays grew to $304 billion from around $262 billion in the same month last year while receipts rose to $184 billion from $163 billion.

    The readings for today’s daily Mass (Monday Nov 12) largely deal with Church order and discipline. Paul in his letter to Titus tells him: For this reason I left you in Crete so that you might set right what remains to be done and appoint presbyters in every town, as I directed you (Titus 1:5).He adds that among other things, the men he picks be able both to exhort with sound doctrine and to refute opponents. Later in the letter we learned that people Crete tended to be unruly people and that there were many things that had been left...

    The California Chamber of Commerce sued the state today in a last-minute protest against the historic "cap and trade" greenhouse gas auction set for Wednesday. In a suit filed in Sacramento Superior Court, the chamber said the auction is really "an unconstitutional tax" on businesses that are affected by the state's global warming act, AB 32.

    The White House insisted Tuesday that it was not aware of the David Petraeus scandal until last Wednesday, blaming FBI "protocols" for not being informed earlier. Press Secretary Jay Carney said President Obama was "surprised" when he learned last Thursday that Petraeus had carried on an extramarital affair. While the FBI had at that point already been investigating for months, Carney said "protocols" at the agency apparently kept them from notifying Congress and other agencies in the Executive Branch. In the latest shoe to drop, the FBI on Sunday forwarded to the Pentagon a case involving thousands of "potentially inappropriate"...

    Liberals often like to compare President Barack Obama to former President Abraham Lincoln. The comparison is usually dismissed as laughably hagiographical, but judging by one unexpected bit of fallout from Tuesday’s election, it could well end up being accurate in just one respect: Like Lincoln, Obama is facing requests by the citizens of numerous states to secede from the union. However, unlike with Lincoln, these requests are peaceful, and highly unlikely to do anything at all except generate news headlines. A massive number of petitions are currently circulating on Change.org, a website designed to call for action by the federal...
