Man Targets American flag At the McCain Mall in North Little Rock, a middle-aged man came up from behind the group as they calmly prayed the rosary. First he said, “Praise be Mary,” giving the impression he was friendly.  Next he shouted, “Get the hell out of here!” and rushed our American flag bearer Elias Bartel, knocking him off his feet...

    Three masked men allegedly broke into a 33-year-old lesbian woman’s home, bound her arms and carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and abdomen. A vigil was held in support of the woman who was allegedly attacked for her sexual orientation. A 33-year-old Nebraska woman said three masked intruders tied her up, carved homophobic slurs into her skin and then set her house on fire in a shocking case that police are reportedly classifying as a hate crime. A spokeswoman for the Lincoln Police Department told CNN on Monday investigators found a derogatory slur used against lesbians spray painted inside her...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed Iran for a terror attack on an Israeli tour bus in Bulgaria today that has claimed the lives of seven Israeli civilians, vowing that Israel will respond. The attack comes on the eighteenth anniversary of a deadly Iranian terror attack against a Jewish community center in Argentina. Netanyahu promised to respond: "Israel will react powerfully against Iranian terror." Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told Fox News' Megyn Kelly that Israel's message had to be taken seriously, given that Netanyahu did not mention Hizbullah--an Iranian proxy with a presence near...
  • Cancer on the body politic; can negative attack ads be eliminated or at least curtailed?

    Civil Discourse Now ^ | April 30, 2012 | Mark Small
    Why do negative ads work? Some people say the negative ads give them information upon which to base their decision at the voting table (those little four-legged stands we use in Marion County). A study from Stanford University says the information from negative ads generally is not accurate. Perhaps negative ads work in the same way as Big-Time Championship Wrestling (as it was called when I was young; whatever it is called now). No one doubts the efforts of the participants, and the world is made a much simpler place when painted in black-and-white (with slightly better resolution vis-a-vis the...

    UNITED NATIONS – A treaty being hammered out this month at the United Nations -- with Iran playing a key role -- could expose the records of America's gun owners to foreign governments -- and, critics warn, eventually put the Second Amendment on global trial. International talks in New York are going on throughout July on the final wording of the so-called Arms Trade Treaty, which supporters such as Amnesty International USA say would rein in unregulated weapons that kill an estimated 1,500 people daily around the world. But critics, including the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, warn the treaty...

    SAN ANTONIO—U.S. Border Patrol agents opened fire Saturday along the Rio Grande on the Texas-Mexico border after being pelted by rocks and having a gunman point a weapon in their direction on the Mexican side of the river, an agency spokesman said. Spokesman Henry Mendiola said no Border Patrol agents were injured in the incident Saturday near Brownsville. He did not know if anyone else was hurt. He said the Mexican government had been notified and was responding to the area. The FBI also was investigating. The Border Patrol released little details about the morning gunfire, including what the suspects...

    Warning: Vulgarity ahead. I wrote last week that a Newsweek article favorable to the personhood movement and personhood leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason had “riled abortion proponents.” Little did I know how much. Someone posted Mason’s home address in a comment to the Newsweek article. Newsweek closed down comments, but it was too late. At 1:30a on June 27, Mason “was in the basement, catching a movie and having a beer, to just chill,” according to a follow-up Newsweek piece, when he heard a loud noise: “[I] thought one of our kids had fallen down the stairs.” Mason says he...

    It was hard to put a finger on it, but something seemed slightly off five years ago as Jim and Nell Hamm were completing a hike through pristine Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. The Humboldt County woods seemed unusually quiet, they said, perhaps a bit spooky that fateful afternoon on Jan. 24, 2007, when Jim heard a "gravelly sound" and looked behind him. In the air, its claws straight out in front, was a mountain lion flying toward his head. He said he instinctively ducked to his left and the lion flew by, landing on the trail. The cougar quickly...
  • Barak: Attack Shows Egypt Losing Control of Sinai

    Monday morning's attack by terrorists against Israeli workers building the security fence on the southern border is further evidence of the increasing failure of Egyptian security efforts in Sinai, said Defense Minister Ehud Barak. Speaking at a meeting of his Atzma'ut faction, Barak said that several recent events, including Grad rocket attacks against Israel over the weekend, meant that Egypt needed to do more to fulfill its international obligations. “We see Monday's attack as a very serious incident,” Barak said. “It comes in the wake of an incident on Shabbat in which two Grad rockets were fired into southern Israel...

    A brown bear mauled a hiker on an offshoot of the Bird Creek Trail south of Anchorage early Sunday, and the man escaped by scrambling up a tree, Alaska State Troopers said. Ben Radakovich, 30 of Eagle River, was about three miles from the trail head hiking alone when he rounded a curve and met up with a bear cub. "(The encounter) scared the cub and the cub turned around and high-tailed it out of there," said Beth Ipsen, trooper spokeswoman. Then the sow attacked. Radakovich was wearing a backpack, which provided some protection, and carrying ski poles, which he...

    PAYSON, AZ - A 74-year-old Arizona woman was injured Thursday morning when a bear ripped a hole in the tent where she, her husband, and their dog had been sleeping. According to Arizona Game and Fish officials, the attack occurred around 4:30 a.m. at the Ponderosa Campground in Tonto National Forest, about 10 miles east of Payson. Officials said after tearing open the tent, the bear reportedly stuck its head in and clawed at the woman, leaving her with bruises and a laceration on her scalp. The Apache Junction woman was treated at Payson Regional Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries...

    Security forces in the Samaria (Shomron) town of Yitzhar were recently involved in violent clashes with Palestinian Authority Arabs, a senior IDF commander said. In at least one case, the security team managed to prevent an attack. Despite that, the team has been punished for its allegedly heavy-handed response by having its responsibilities scaled back and its weapons confiscated. The commander described two of the incidents that led to the punishment. As background, he noted that there has been a rash of arson attacks in the area lately – most of them carried out by Palestinian Authority Arabs, but some...

    An Australian woman says she was "stalked" for two days by an angry kangaroo, which finally attacked, leaving her with a 12-inch scar. "It was lucky it was cool weather and I had two layers of clothing; otherwise it could have been worse," Kirrily McWilliams said. The (Sydney) Daily Telegraph reports that McWilliams called the National Parks and Wildlife Services (NPWS) to report that the female eastern gray kangaroo was lurking outside her home, in Port Macquarie in New South Wales. But wildlife officials reportedly told her to simply ignore the kangaroo and that it would move on. Instead, the...

    Back in February, The Blaze reported on Obama’s “Truth Teams,” described on the official site as “a network of [President Obama's] supporters who are committed to responding to unfounded attacks and defending the President’s record.” “When you’re faced with someone who misrepresents the truth, you can find all the facts you need right here—along with ways to share the message with whoever needs to hear it,” the site continues. (Related: Obama Campaign Launches ‘Truth Teams’) However, after consistent ridicule (particularly over the “Attack Watch” section of the site), the Truth Teams started flying lower on the political radar. Now, it...

    A Winnipeg man who was dragged out of an outhouse by a black bear is recovering at home with some cuts on his back and an amazing tale of survival. Gord Shurvell, 65, was camping and fishing with a friend at a cabin by Dunbar Lake, about 60 kilometres north of Sioux Lookout, Ont., when the bear attacked him early Saturday. Shurvell told CBC News he was in the outhouse, with the door wide open so he could enjoy the morning view, when the bear barged in. "I'm sitting on the throne, and my feet are sort of up on...

    Democrats balk at Obama campaign’s sustained attack on Bain CapitalBy Cameron Joseph - 05/22/12 08:35 PM ET Some influential Democrats on and off Capitol Hill are refusing to give President Obama political cover for his attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital. Despite pushback from more than a half-dozen Democrats, the Obama campaign on Tuesday defended how it has scrutinized Romney’s business background. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a widely respected member of Congress, stopped short of criticizing the president, but made it clear that the campaign should pivot. “It’s done,” she said. “Go on to other things now.” Sen....

    Al Qaeda has called upon its followers to unleash massive forest fires upon the United States this summer. Published in the latest edition of the notorious terror magazine, 'Inspire', are graphic instructions for the creation and ignition of 'ember bombs' Detailed in the memorably titled, 'It is of your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb', the magazine encourages any would-be terrorist to target Montana, because of the rapid population growth in its wooded areas. 'In America, there are more houses built in the countryside than in the cities,' explained the writer known as The AQ Chef according to ABC News. Reveling...
