    An associate professor at the University of North Dakota called the police on two ROTC students carrying replica rifles on campus, saying the group's practice drills are "highly inappropriate" and "irresponsible" in light of recent school shootings. In a letter Sunday to the Grand Forks Herald, Heidi Czerwiec described the panic she felt when she looked up from her office computer to see "two figures in camo with guns" outside her window. "My first thought is for my students' and my safety: I grab my phone, crawl under my desk and call 911," she wrote. The threat, however, was two...

With a creeping poisonous Marxism that’s already dragged in the Vicar of Christ on Earth, the prime minister next door and asundry ‘leaders’ of other nations, it’s time to shout BOO (Back Off Obama!) from the rooftops.

    A sick performance that was part of the Ha'aretz Israel Culture Conference at the Tel Aviv Museum Sunday was cut short and the "artist" made to leave the stage. The performer, Ariel Bronz, inserted a flag into a part of his nether anatomy in front of the crowd, which predictably reacted harshly. According to Israel Hayom's Dror Eydar, the flag was an Israeli flag. According to some reports, the artist also threw juiced oranges at the audience after he was booed. In a Ha'aretz interview in October, Bronz said that he sees his art as a form of terror and...

    Ohio Governor John Kasich fought for more time during the Fox Business debate this evening, but as he grew increasingly agitated over what he saw as a lack of experience on key issues, the audience got tired of his preaching. At one point, they booed the governor when he was defending the notion of bailing out banks in order to keep them from failing. snip He appeared willing to interrupt any of the non-establishment candidates to remind them about what he saw as the “realities” of serving as an executive, and he frequently charged over the moderators, ignoring the bell...

    On Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will fulfill his invitation from House Speaker John Boehner to warn the world about the grave threat Iran poses to the Jewish State and the United States. Because Boehner didn't consult the White House about the invitation, Democrats are throwing a fit about Netanyahu's planned address to a joint session of Congress. The Congressional Black Caucus has loudly proclaimed its members will not attend Netanyahu's speech, citing a perceived disrespect from the Prime Minister toward President Obama. Dozens of other Democrats also plan to skip out. Vice President Joe Biden will be jetting...

    Sen. John McCain didn’t quite receive a warm welcome when he spoke before a Arizona Republican Party committee meeting Saturday, with several GOP delegates booing and turning their backs on him during his speech. According to the Arizona Daily Independent, the only members of the audience who showed any appreciation for McCain were a “mostly silver-haired faction” and outside supporters reportedly brought in to cheer him on. However, some attendees claimed to The Arizona Republic that only a few booed the senator and nearly everyone there seemed to love him. But video and images of the event show a sizable...

    Former President Jimmy Carter believes U.S. intelligence agencies are spying on him — so much so, he eschews email to avoid government spies. "You know, I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored," Carter told NBC's Andrea Mitchell in an interview broadcast Sunday. "And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write a letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it. "I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored," Carter continued. The 89-year-old said the National Security Agency and others have abused the argument that gathering...

Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa failed--three times in a row--to earn the support of a two-thirds majority of delegates to amend the platform to include Jerusalem and a reference to "God," which had been omitted. In the end, he merely deemed that the convention had passed the motion--though it clearly had not--and adopted the amendments...

"We declined a few weeks ago and [the] NAACP was pleased [Vice President Joe Biden] was able to attend," a campaign official told CNN. But the president's schedule for Thursday, released Wednesday evening, appears to be wide open with the exception of his daily briefing with senior aides and advisers. Hilary Shelton, the NAACP Washington Bureau director and a senior vice president in the organization, said the White House never confirmed a visit. “They were trying to...

    Los Angeles • Ever since Bram Stoker’s Dracula began haunting the imagination in 1897, popular culture has identified Christian symbols — crucifixes, holy water, communion wafers — as weapons to ward off a blood-thirsty vampire. The Twilight novels and film franchise have religious associations, too — most of them from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As the film’s “Twi-hard” fans get ready for the third “Twilight” installment, “Eclipse,” to open in theaters Wednesday, few are likely to recognize the religious references in the film based on the novels by Stephenie Meyer, herself a Mormon. “People make up...

    Motorists who receive minor parking or traffic tickets in Indianapolis, Indiana are being threatened with fines of up to $2500 if they attempt to take the ticket to court. A local attorney with the firm Roberts and Bishop was so outraged by what he saw in Marion County traffic court that he filed a class action suit yesterday seeking to have the practice banned as unconstitutional. "The deck is stacked against the motorist," lawyer Paul K. Ogden wrote. "To penalize that person for seeking justice seems wrong.

This will ensure the elections of Obama as the media will blame the Republicans for not voting for the bailout. When socialist and defeatist Obama is the next President he will pass with the democrat Congress a 1.5 trillion dollars bailout loaded with welfare prgrams. To pay for it he will increase our taxes by 15% to 20%. It will be absolute socialism. This is no time for purism and absolute principles, there is a simple...

Similarly, polls increasingly show the unpopularity of the Iraq war, as well as of the Congress that seems incapable of ending it. Because some people who vocally oppose amnesty are supportive of the war, the ideological connection between support of the war and amnesty is often masked. If there is a single word explaining the reasons why we continue to fight unpopular wars and see...

Twenty-one percent of the 1,000 adults who replied to the survey conducted Thursday through Sunday said it was very likely or somewhat likely their conversations had been wiretapped, while 52 percent said it was not at all likely.(snip) According to the poll, Americans appear to be split over the legality of the domestic eavesdropping program. About 49 percent of respondents said the president had definitely or probably broken the law by authorizing the wiretaps and...

    But Judge Alito also brings with him to this process a universally-accepted reputation as a rock-ribbed conservative jurist who is not afraid to get out in front of the curve when it comes to the types of social issues that get the president's base foaming at the mouth. For example, he is to the right of the Court's current majority when it comes to abortion rights — he voted for a marital notice provision in an abortion law early in his career as a judge — and his ascension to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's seat would immediately narrow that majority...

    CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chavez urged Venezuelan parents not to dress their children in costumes for Halloween, calling it a U.S. custom that has no place in the South American country's cultural traditions. Speaking during his weekly radio and television show Sunday, Chavez called Halloween a "gringa," or North American, custom. "Families go and begin to disguise their children as witches," Chavez said. "That is contrary to our ways." Chavez said he was urging Venezuelans to reflect on the subject. In recent years it has become common to see Venezuelan parents holding parties for children dressed as ghouls,...

    There are two digital images identical to each other (click above link); you have to find three differences. If you can find three differences, then you are part of an elite group. This has been tested on many people (in Holland), and hardly anyone found the three differences. After 45 seconds, 75% of those tested can only manage to find two differences, 24% see 1 difference.

    Civil War mystery may be solved by modern technology. (PRWEB) June 28, 2005 -- One of the mysteries of American Civil War lore may have finally been solved.

  • National Treasure it is NOT!

    I believe National Treasure implies that Freemasons are a POSITVE influence on our country. Anybody that knows the TRUTH about Freemasonry rather than the propaganda they wrap themselves in will NOT be takin in by the positive portrayal in this movie. Please America, wake up, don't buy into the guys who brought "Seperation of Church/State" to America, model ISLAM as the highest truth (the Shriners), label the Holy Bible as "Furinture" in a lodge, and outlaw the name of "Jesus" in any lodge. I know I will get flamed by 10,000 Masons and Mason supporters on this, but if you...

Late nineteenth-century Halloween pranks included smearing doorknobs with tar, removing gates from fenced yards, knocking over occupied outhouses, and dismantling farmers' wagons and reassembling them on the roof of the local...
