    A group of attackers pummeled a transgender man badly enough to fracture his left eye in a Brooklyn beating police are investigating as a bias crime. The 32-year-old victim, who police say identifies as male, was set upon by five men as he walked along Ninth St. between Seventh and Eighth Aves. in Park Slope at about 11:30 a.m. Friday. “What are you looking at, you white f----t?” one of the men yelled. They then started punching the victim repeatedly in the head and face, cops said.

    “Whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice, yes, and I will rejoice” (Philippians 1:18). It is possible to maintain your joy even while dealing with criticisms and irritating distractions. The dictionary definition of detraction is “the uttering of material (as false or slanderous charges) that is likely to damage the reputation of another.” A detractor wants to undermine and destroy the good name and credibility of another. Great statesmen, such as President Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War, often have been the targets of contentious political opponents and stinging detractions by the...

    Grace to You.org ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    The twelve apostles included "Thaddaeus" (Matt. 10:3). If you love Christ, you will receive His Word and obey it. Radio signals are fascinating. At any given moment every room in your house is filled with voices, music, and numerous other sounds—yet you can't hear them unless your radio is tuned to their frequency. That's a modern parallel to a spiritual truth Jesus taught in John 14:21, where He says, "He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and...

    Debates over the U.S. government's foreign and economic policies have recently taken a backseat to the debate over what bathroom transgender individuals should use. The two sides of the debate both believe that government has the legitimate authority to tell private businesses who they should allow to use their facilities. Few on either side of this debate defend the right of private property owners to decide for themselves who may and may not use their bathrooms. Some say government must be involved in this issue in order to ensure that private businesses do not violate individual rights. Those who make...

    Chinese officials plan to ask their American counterparts in annual talks next month about the chance of a Federal Reserve interest-rate increase in June, according to people familiar with the matter. The Chinese delegation will try to deduce whether a June or a July rate rise is more likely, as the nation’s policy makers prepare for the potential impact on financial markets and the yuan, the people said, asking not to be named as the discussions were private. In China’s view, if the Fed does lift borrowing costs, a July move would be preferable, the people said. A People’s Bank...

    It may have felt like a pipe dream for many Bernie Sanders supporters: a Bernie vs. Trump televised debate. But the possibility seems to be getting closer and closer to becoming a reality. Both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have expressed a willingness to debate each other before the California primary on June 7. A debate almost happened in March, and now it’s looking like a debate is more and more likely to happen before the primary. After you read this article, take our poll at the very end of the story and let us know if you think Trump...

    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren moves with the fleet-footed bounce of a featherweight fighter - an agile pugilist who has been using Twitter to deliver jabs and hooks to Republican front-runner Donald Trump. She is not an especially elegant fighter, but she's fast - throwing a barrage of blows: "loser," "pathetic," "weak." And in person, too, her style is aerodynamic, with her short sandy hair, rimless glasses, necklace-free decolletage and tiny stud earrings. She is nearly accoutrement-free as she moves against the head winds. She looks quick and agile. Flexed for a fight. And her sleeves are always rolled up -...

    JNS.org – Ever wonder why it is that Congress passes so many strongly pro-Israel bills, yet they never seem to be implemented? For example, a bill was passed to move the Embassy of the United States in Israel to Jerusalem — but the embassy was never moved. Legislation was passed to restrict US aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) — but it was never restricted. Now a bill has been passed to permit families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia — but in fact, it will actually block such lawsuits. What all three of these laws have in common...

It features "an elderly Asian British woman being berated by an aggressive thug", according to Operation Black Vote's description. The campaign says it is meant to show everyone has the same voting power.Magnus Djaba, chief executive of Saatchi and Saatchi London, the ad agency which created the poster, said: "This is a message about democracy, not a message about race.

    The American people have shown us over the past decade that they will no longer put up with Washington’s back room deals and slush fund spending. There are no more Bridges to Nowhere, and bailouts using taxpayer dollars, such as those initially required by Obamacare, are met with ferocious opposition. While Washington still spends and taxes too much, the American people have made their opinion on these matters unmistakable. But while the public has raised its collective voice against this irresponsible spending, the Obama Administration has found a new loophole for advancing its liberal agenda – legal settlements. These proceedings...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did break her department’s rules by setting up her own secret email server, the inspector general concluded in a report sent to Congress on Wednesday that says she failed to report hacking attempts and waved off warnings that she should switch to a more official email account. Inspector General Steve Linick, appointed by President Obama, said he couldn’t find any evidence that Mrs. Clinton received approval for her odd email arrangement, and when lower-level staffers pressed the issue, saying she was skirting open-records laws, they were ordered “never to speak of the secretary’s personal...

He’s got to show he and his ilk are nothing like those unwashed, knuckle-dragging barbarians who made it possible for his ilk to spout nonsense in English instead of German or Japanese. Just know that he doesn’t speak for me. I’m not sorry for defeating our enemies. I’m not sorry for anything. The two most common categories of responses to the moral illiterates...

    FBI agents shouldn't have questioned Oregon standoff figure David Fry after taking him into custody Feb. 11 because his attorney already had invoked Fry's right to remain silent, federal prosecutors admitted Wednesday. "The government acknowledges that agents should not have questioned him," Assistant U.S.Attorney Ethan Knight wrote in a legal brief. Fry's attorney, Per C. Olson, had contacted Knight and Oregon's federal public defender earlier Feb. 11, asking them to contact the FBI to relay his request to speak with Fry and his desire that Fry not answer any questions from police once he was arrested. Olson contacted Knight at...

    SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Fueled by independents and younger voters fed up with both parties, Bernie Sanders has clawed his way back from a seemingly insurmountable deficit to draw nearly even with Hillary Clinton in California, a new poll finds less than two weeks before the Golden State's primary. The Vermont senator now trails Clinton 46 percent to 44 percent among likely voters, a virtual dead heat well within the margin of error of the survey conducted by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California. While even losing California's June 7 primary wouldn't stop Clinton from claiming the Democratic nomination,...

The investigator claimed attorney Jose Baez hired him days after police arrested the mom in July 2008.

    When German engineers from ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, who are building Israel’s next-generation Sa’ar-6 class missile corvette, showed Israel Navy engineers the first blueprints for the strategically vital vessel, the Israelis realized there was a problem. The plans outlined a ship based on Germany’s own sea platforms, and was similar in design. Yet Israel must deal with a far more challenging environment, in which Hezbollah is stockpiling radar-guided shore-to-sea missiles that can target the navy, offshore gas drilling rigs in the Mediterranean and strategically vital sites, such as civilian sea ports – just the type of threat the Sa’ar-6 will be...

    A prominent Saudi cleric has declared photographs with cats, and other animals, unless completely necessary due to an upsurge in Saudis “who want to be like Westerners.” On a televised broadcast, Sheikh Saleh Bin Fawzan Al-Fazwan, a member of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars, was told about “a new trend of taking pictures with cats has been spreading among people who want to be like Westerners.” He replied: “What?! What do you mean pictures with cats? Taking pictures is prohibited. The cats don’t matter here.” The sheikh continued: “Taking pictures is prohibited if not for a necessity. Not with...

    If Clinton becomes president and appoints liberal justices, the author writes, a liberal majority on the court will enable her to remake the United States. This article first appeared on the Thoughtful Ideas site. If Hillary Clinton is elected, she may have the opportunity to appoint three or possibly four justices to the Supreme Court. First up is filling the late Antonin Scalia’s seat, which will give the court a five-vote liberal majority consisting, on her inauguration, of Sonia Sotomayor (63), Elena Kagan (56), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (83) and Stephen Breyer (78).

    A medical marijuana legalization bill has been sent to Ohio Gov. John Kasich in an effort by state lawmakers to offset support for a proposed fall ballot measure. The measure cleared the Ohio Senate by just three votes, and the House followed by OKing Senate changes 67-28. The proposal, which Kasich has not committed to signing, would bar patients from smoking marijuana or growing it at home, but it would allow its use in vapor form for certain chronic health conditions. It garnered both support and opposition among Republicans and Democrats. Supporters recalled emotional testimony from chronic pain sufferers and...

    The state’s auditor general says the Illinois Lottery violated state finance law by prepaying $20 million to ensure it could participate in future multi-state lottery games even without a state budget. The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the lottery made two $10 million payments on June 30, 2015, when it was clear lawmakers had failed to agree on a state budget that should have begun the next day. …

    A nationally ranked Minnesota charter school facing a discrimination complaint by the parents of a former kindergarten transgender student approved a controversial new gender inclusion policy at a school board meeting. While the school board, which consists of a mix of parents, teachers, and community members, overwhelmingly voted in favor of the new policy Monday night, some parents are upset with the outcome. “What has happened at Nova is unthinkable,” a mother with two children at the school told The Daily Signal. “A classical school based in logic and reason has taken the most radical approach possible, that of affirming...
