    Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri has called on Muslims to attack U.S., European, Israeli and Russian targets in a speech on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. SITE Intelligence Group reports that in a video released by the militant group, Zawahri also criticizes "backtrackers" from jihad, referring to former jihadis who changed their views in prison and called the 9/11 attacks unacceptable because innocent civilians were harmed. Zawahri, an Egyptian, became leader of al Qaeda following the 2011 killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan by U.S. Navy SEALS. He is believed to be hiding somewhere in...

    Team USA saw its 58-game winning streak in international tournaments featuring NBA players end Wednesday with an 89-79 loss to France in the quarterfinals of the FIBA World Cup in Dongguan, China, ensuring USA Basketball cannot medal. Team USA’s last loss with NBA players on its roster came against Greece in the semifinals of the 2006 world championships. The Americans rebounded to win gold at the Beijing Olympics two years later and also won the two Olympic tournaments that followed. They already had qualified for next year’s Summer Games in Tokyo. The composition of Team USA’s roster at those Olympics...
  • How buying and selling a home could soon be as simple as trading stocks

    On a recent weeknight, Dahlia and Adam Brown came home to a spacious Colonial on a quiet cul-de-sac in Marietta, Georgia. The Browns both work demanding jobs and have two young sons. They bought the house in June using Knock, a company that’s trying to revolutionize the real estate industry with a “home trade-in platform” making it easier to buy and sell at once. That solution was ideal for the Browns, who are just as busy as most couples, but are more introverted, making the idea of prospective buyers tramping through their private space seem excruciating. Across town, Martha Seay...

    CNBC host Jim Cramer gave Massachusetts Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren an unintentional boost when he said that Wall Street executives are privately telling him that “She’s got to be stopped!” On Tuesday’s edition of CNBC’s Squawk on the Street, Cramer told co-hosts David Faber and Dominic Chu that Wall Street executives are quaking in their boots at the prospect of a Warren presidency. He began by talking about Wells Fargo’s struggle to find a new CEO. “I still wonder what it’s like to have no CEO. In the end, I know, Elizabeth Warren don’t listen, I favor...

  • Call From Amazon/Vanity

    I keep getting a call that says press '1' to talk to an Amazon rep. I've got phone blocking but haven't yet blocked this same number, 800-300-8009. I'm really tempted to answer and press '1'. Anybody else getting this possible scam? I don't think I can reveal too much of anything just by pressing '1'. I mean nearly once a day. Sorry for the vanity:<(((

    Posted on September 10, 2019September 10, 2019 by Msgr. Charles Pope Three Reasons for Humility The first reading at Mass this past Sunday (23rd Sunday of the Year C) speaks to our limitations and need for humility.Who can know God’s counsel, or who can conceive what the LORD intends? For the deliberations of mortals are timid, and unsure are our plans. For the corruptible body burdens the soul and the earthen shelter weighs down the mind that has many concerns. And scarce do we guess the things on earth, and what is within our grasp we find with difficulty;...
  • Fireman Sam axed by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue because he’s male

    A fire service has taken the decision to axe popular TV character Fireman Sam as their mascot. Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service said that they had received negative feedback because the mascot was not inclusive enough. He had been used by the fire service for station open days and on advertising materials. Instead they are using gender neutral blue, red and yellow fire extinguishers called Freddy, Filbert and Penelope. Chief fire officer Lez Britzman said: ‘Firefighters nationally and residents locally have raised some concerns that “Fireman Sam” doesn’t reflect the fire service today, in terms of both the job itself...

  • Why Illinois can't balance its budget

    Daily Herald ^ | 6/20/2019 | Austin Berg
    Republicans and Democrats sang the same song at the Statehouse after rapidly passing the largest budget in state history: "It's balanced." Unfortunately, watchdogs couldn't offer much dissent in the moment. Lawmakers passed the 1,581-page document over the course of one weekend. In the absence of independent analysis, which takes more than a couple days to complete on a $40 billion spending plan, political rhetoric was rampant. It was all eerily familiar. In 2018, state lawmakers on both sides of the aisle claimed they had balanced the budget. But Illinois Policy Institute analysis had it out of whack by up to...
  • Buying U.S. Medications From Canada Is Not the Same As Importing Them

    The Trump Administration announced in July it will allow Americans to buy cheaper prescription drugs from Canada, including penicillin treatments for diabetes. Only one problem: Canada develops few drugs. Most that are used in the country actually come from multinational companies, mostly American. It is impossible to believe that drug companies will provide the gun to shoot themselves in the foot. Buying medications from Canada is not importing them, it is reimporting them - from the subsidiaries of multinational companies that are seen as the source of high prices. All that Americans are doing when they purchase penicillin and other...

    In an unexpected morning vote Tuesday, Republicans in the North Carolina House of Representatives pushed through an override of Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget. Rep. Deb Butler (D-New Hanover/Brunswick) strongly protested the move with a speech that led a man to turn off her microphone. When she could not keep the microphone on, Butler shouted at House Speaker Tim Moore for “usurping” the process.

    I imagine I’m not the only one this happened to, but still, you hate to see it happen at all. You express your support for Trump on a given issue, and an old friend or acquaintance dumps you. That’s how fiercely they oppose – or even despise – him. How do we best navigate these turbulent waters? Growing up in a small Jewish community on Long Island, most of my best friends were also Jewish. And like the majority of American Jews, most of those old friends are now liberal Democrats. And a few of those old friends – or...

    In an article published on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, The New York Times decided to blame airplanes for taking down the World Trade Center, completely ignoring that it was terrorists who hijacked those planes. “Eighteen years have passed since airplanes took aim at the World Trade Center and brought them down,” reads the second paragraph in the piece titled “Remembering Those Lost 18 Years Ago on 9/11.” In fact, terrorism isn’t even mentioned in the article, except for in the subheading. To make matters worse, this is the section the NYT tweeted to promote the...
  • After Odessa Shooting, Support For Gun Control Is Declining

    We’re still reeling from a rather violent spate of mass shootings. El Paso, Texas Dayton, Ohio, and Odessa, Texas each saw some lunatic commit senseless acts of violence. Still, mass shootings are still rare. Violent crime is still down. And rifles still commit the smallest share of gun deaths. It’s well below 500. And yes, it’s a numbers game. It shouldn’t be, but the anti-gun Left decided to combine homicides with suicides to inflate the numbers and manufacture a narrative that the U.S. is a shooting gallery. It’s not. And neither are our schools, which have never been safer. Firearms...
  • Brian Stelter Mocked for Lame 'Gotcha' Tweet on Trump Rally Weather

    No sweat! Or so CNN's Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter must have thought when he victoriously tweeted about how President Donald Trump was supposedly completely wrong about weather conditions. Stelter seemed to forget that something other than rain can get people wet in the humid South, namely Fayetteville, North Carolina where Trump held a rally on Monday. First let us see Stelter's "gotcha" moment in which he thinks he caught the President in a lie only to be brutally shot down in a most mocking manner by those on Twitter who reminded him about what else could cause people waiting...
