    A rocket exploded in an open area near an Arab village in Gush Etzion around 2:15 p.m. as sirens wailed in Jerusalem during another barrage of rockets and missiles unleashed by Hamas. The missile exploded in an open area, and no one was injured. Minutes before the sirens rang out, an AFP correspondent in Gaza City reported hearing the loud report of an outgoing rocket. The attack was claimed by Hamas's armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, which said it had fired "an M75 rocket at the occupied city of Jerusalem." United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who spent the...

    The man who accused Elmo’s puppeteer of sexual misconduct reportedly wants to recant his recantation. Sheldon Stephens, 24, last week withdrew sensational claims that, as an underage teen, he had a wild fling with Kevin Clash, the voice behind the beloved Muppet Elmo. Now Stephens is interviewing lawyers in hopes of ripping up the $125,000 deal he reached with Clash, 52, to deny there was any illegal sex, according to TMZ. (snip)

    Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- When Congress reconvened this week, one of the first items the U.S. Senate voted on was S. 3525, “The Sportsmen’s Act of 2012.” As we reported last week, S. 3525 is an essential piece of legislation focused on the expansion and enhancement of hunting, recreational fishing and shooting on federal public land. But it’s more than that. Of critical importance is the fact that, in addition to promoting land access, S. 3525 would amend the “Toxic Substances Control Act” to prevent this and future administrations from using the Environmental Protection Agency to eliminate the right of hunters,...

    The endless wars with Israel are not really about the Jewish State. Nor are the wars about the Arabs living in the territories that Israel lost in 1948 to Jordan and Egypt and recaptured from them in 1967. The rest of the Muslim world cares no more about them than Hitler cared about the Sudeten Germans or Japan really believed in the rights of Chinese and Koreans. Israel is a sideline in a regional struggle by fractured populations, divided by ethnicity and religion, by language and natural resources, to unite into a single commonality. It is a natural target because...

    A Proclamation. The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke...

    ***SNIP*** There have been recent attacks aimed specifically at man’s best friend in various European nations.

    SAN FRANCISCO, November 19, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) - The pendulum of the sexual revolution may be swinging slightly back toward sanity in San Francisco, as the city is set to vote on a new law that may bar public nudity – except at the city’s gay pride march and other events covered by permit. The ordinance, introduced by Supervisor Scott Wiener who oversees the city’s homosexual Castro District, would make it illegal for any adult and most children to “expose his or her genitals, perineum, or anal region” in public. The behavior of some naturists at the district’s public plaza pushed...

    Jeremy Friehling, the 23-year-old son of Bernard Madoff’s former auditor, David Friehling, has died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. The younger Friehling was attending medical school at Ohio State University. Police found his body last Thursday inside his apartment in Columbus, Ohio, after his friends contacted them after some of his Facebook postings aroused concerns about his wellbeing. He was a valedictorian in his high school in New City, N.Y., and was active in sports, according to the Journal News. He graduated from Duke University. His father, David Friehling, was a partner in the New City, N.Y., accounting firm...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 19, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) - The new head of a Catholic philanthropic organization is a longtime Obama advisor and member of the Religious Left. Alexia Kelley has been named CEO and president of the Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities (FADICA). According to its website, FADICA “reinforces a foundation’s Catholic values, family mission, and faith-based stewardship.” Kelley takes her new position after serving as director of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The committee is headed by Joshua Dubois. Like Kelley, Dubois favors an “abortion reduction” strategy focused heavily...

    People often ask how it is that northerners move to the South, or Mexicans and other foreigners to the US, for a better life, but then vote as they did whence they came. Don't they know this only ensures that the South will become more like the North or the US more like south of the border? Again, whatever they know, it isn't mainly a matter of knowledge. Of course, in many cases people do fail to make the proper associations between cause and effect. Yet this is often due to emotional blocks, as the intellect cannot adjudicate facts not...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 11/19/2012 | Tom Gantert
    Gov. Jennifer Granholm often spoke of using “green energy” to turn around the state’s economy, but instead Michigan has become the epicenter of government-subsidized failures. Four of the nation's top eight “green energy” companies that have filed for bankruptcy had operations in Michigan and received state and federal subsidies. The Heritage Foundation put together a list of the 19 federally supported green energy companies that filed for bankruptcy and Michigan was represented significantly. The companies with Michigan operations included A123 Systems, Azure Dynamics, United Solar Ovonics and Evergreen Solar. Federal, state and local governments were willing to put up as...

    The way in which the New York Times reports good vs. evil is one of the most important stories of our time. Take the war between Israel and Hamas that is taking place right now. This war is as morally clear as wars get. Hamas is a terrorist organization dedicated to annihilating the Jewish state. It runs a theocratic totalitarian state in Gaza, with no individual liberty and no freedom of speech or press. In a nutshell, Hamas is a violent, fascist organization. Israel, meanwhile, is one the world's most humane states, not to mention a democracy that is so...

    In the film "Groundhog Day," Bill Murray wakes up each morning and relives the previous day. A similar scenario is playing out in the Middle East between Israel and her enemies. The deadly "movie" always goes like this: Israel is shelled or attacked by terrorists groups, often called "militants" by the media, each one with the same goal: Israel's elimination. After demonstrating considerable restraint of the kind that would never be tolerated by any other nation, Israel fires back. Suddenly, the world awakens from its indifference. World leaders, who said little when Israeli civilians were wounded and killed, now urge...

    This article was co-authored by Bob Morrison. It seems every time the Republicans lose a presidential election, white board-toting architects and backroom strategists descend on the Sunday talk shows. Republicans must dump the social issues. Defending the right to life of unborn children and upholding the civil right of marriage is just costing too much support with the voters. We have to moderate our positions, they say. It’s as if the Second Officer on the Titanic were to run down six flights of stairs and yell at the grimy, coal dust covered sweating stokers shoveling coal in the engine...

    President Barack Obama had more positive news coverage than he had gotten in months in the days just prior to the November election, but that was attributable to his improving race strategy rather than his prominence in the Superstorm Sandy coverage. That is according to a new study from the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism, based on a content analysis of 660 news stories from 49 mainstream media outlets between Oct. 22 and Nov. 5. According to the study, 37% of the "horserace" stories about the president in the last week of the campaign were positive, compared...
