    (Doggie News) Great news! Caitlyn, the 15-month old Staffy-mix that was found last week in critical condition with her muzzle clamped shut with electrical tape, is now recovering from surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. According to the Charleston Animal Society, veterinarian Dr. Henri Bianucci performed the surgery to repair extensive damage to Caitlyn’s cheek and lips. The surgery, which took about two hours to perform, originally called for repair to her tongue which appeared to have become irreparably damaged due to loss of blood when it became clamped between her top and bottom teeth while her...

    Donations From Around the World Pour in for Stray Dog ‘Fighting for Her Life’ After Her Muzzle Was Taped Shut for Days Since horrific images spread of a South Carolina stray dog found with her muzzle tightly shut by electrical tape, donations and support from around the world have been pouring in for Caitlyn, the 15-month-old Staffordshire Terrier mix who was receiving treatment Friday at an emergency veterinary clinic. And the reward shot up Friday from $1,000 to $6,000 for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for what one official called ”the most malicious case of animal abuse...

    It’s an Obama world. The Obama State Department today refused to condemn the seizure of a Marshall Islands ship by the Iranian regime. Jeff Rathke from the State Department briefing refused to condemn the actions (13:57): (video at link) Reporter: What do you consider the Iranian act? Is it a — an act of piracy, act of violence? Rathke: Again, I’m — this I think is underway. I’m not going to apply an adjective to it right now.

    I can't take it anymore. If one more person sends me that e-mail about Hillary and the Black Panthers, I'll have to be dragged away screaming in a straitjacket. You know the e-mail I'm talking about. It accuses Hillary of helping the Black Panthers get away with torture and murder during the early 1970s. With the 2004 presidential race drawing near, the spam mills are creaking to life, flooding the Internet once more with this agitprop classic. Unfortunately, the e-mail mingles good information with bad, sowing more confusion than enlightenment. Some versions, for instance, carry the byline of radio talk...
  • ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ did not happen in Ferguson

    WaPo ^ | 3/22/2015 | Michelle Ye Hee Lee
    This phrase became a rallying cry for Ferguson residents, who took to the streets to protest the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer, Darren Wilson. Witness accounts spread after the shooting that Brown had his hands raised in surrender, mouthing the words “Don’t shoot” as his last words before being shot execution-style. The gesture of raised hands became a symbol of outrage over mistreatment of unarmed black youth by police. That narrative was called into question when a St. Louis County grand jury could not confirm those testimonies. And a recently released Department of Justice...

    “That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.” - Aldous Huxley I like quotes. Quotes are wisdom for those with short attention spans. They are disregarded by many as irrelevant platitudes or obsolete; however, they are knowledge, often hard-earned and considered by their authors to be important enough to be passed on. I’ve chosen the above quote for today, not only because it is always relevant, but because we bear witness to a time where the political left of this country is trying...

    19-Year-Old Jessica Lane Chambers was brutally murdered in Mississippi two nights ago. Unfortunately the details of her murder are so horrific to comprehend they make the current racial anxiety in the headlines seem small, yet also potentially more explosive. …When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire. […] They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose… Yes, Jessica was white; and no, by all accounts her killer(s) were not. She wasn’t just attacked, beaten, and burned alive – she was brutalized beyond all horrific imaginings. When you identify what took place,...

However, even with this headwind, each day many more people choose to engage in an honest discovery and understanding of what’s going on. Whether because they stumble upon a concern, or whether they happen across some information that makes them rethink their prior position and views, it can lead to an engagement with us from a perspective of their only reality view having been determined by...

    There was something for everyone in the release last week by the Congressional Budget Office of its August update and outlook. The federal government’s revenues are expected to top $3 trillion this year for the first time in history, thanks to individual income taxes rising by six percent, payroll taxes by eight percent, and corporate income taxes by 15 percent. Those infatuated with big government are celebrating the event as a reflection of an improving economy resuscitated by government spending and stimulus programs. Small government advocates, on the other hand, are decrying the event by reminding those who will listen...

Risen, whose reporting on warrantless wiretapping was published in 2006, is now facing jail time for the same material that earned him a Pulitzer Prize. According to Democracy Now, Risen’s original story was supposed to be published in the New York Times prior to the Presidential election in 2004. However, the report was not published until 2006, because Risen was under “government pressure,” due to the fact that his article could have had an...

    Precisely 100 years after the death of Islam’s prophet Muhammad in 632, his Arab followers, after having conquered thousands of miles of lands from Arabia to Spain, found themselves in Gaul, modern day France, facing a hitherto little known people, the Christian Franks. There, around October 10-11, in the year 732, one of history’s most decisive battles took place, demarcating the extent of Islam’s western conquests and ensuring the survival of the West. Prior to this, the Islamic conquerors had for one century been subjugating all peoples and territories standing in their western march—including Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco....

As an audience of D-Day veterans and world leaders listened, President Reagan introduced the American Rangers who captured the cliffs as “champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war.” But starting this year, many of our best students won’t learn about the “boys of Pointe du Hoc.” Although state and local U.S. history standards recognize and...

    Most Americans are unaware that under the “Refugee Resettlement Program,” whole Muslim communities from hostile nations are imported into the United States, circumventing whatever immigration laws that are still intact. This is made even more dangerous by what organization determines who is are refugees and who aren’t. It’s the UN, driven largely by the world’s largest international body, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The OIC is a modern day caliphate made up of 56 countries and the Palestinian terrorists. For years, a handful of my colleagues and I have warned of the reckless immigration polices here in America and...

    On Saturday the WaPo featured a wordy piece devoted to Darren Wilson’s dysfunctional family of origin, and the racial and other problems in the police force he used to work for, difficulties that seem to have had nothing whatsoever to do with him. As William A. Jacobson has written, it’s an attempt at guilt by association. That effort seems even more biased when it is contrasted with a lengthy AP article published the very next day in the Sunday WaPo that tells us what a great guy Michael Brown was. From Saturday’s article about Wilson, Darren Wilson’s first job was...

If there is empirical evidence on the importance of strong standards, this is probably the place to find it. Unfortunately, only two papers in the entire compendium are devoted to measuring the impact of Common...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A year after the Supreme Court struck down a law barring federal recognition of gay marriages, the Obama administration granted an array of new benefits Friday to same-sex couples, including those who live in states where gay marriage is against the law. The new measures range from Social Security and veterans benefits to work leave for caring for sick spouses. They are part of President Barack Obama's efforts to expand whatever protections he can offer to gays and lesbians even though more than half of the states don't recognize gay marriage.

    White working-class Britons are "marginalised" due to immigration and badly paid jobs, according to a study by the Open Society Foundations (OSF). The group, set up by billionaire George Soros, spent a year talking to residents of the Higher Blackley area of Manchester, northern England, and asking them their views on a wide variety of subjects. They found that residents felt disillusioned and disempowered after years of mass immigration to the area. Although the residents have a "strong work ethic", they are still finding it hard to get jobs thanks to mass migration. Researchers also found that although there is...

For about 18 months before the attacks on our Benghazi Special Mission, intelligence had successfully identified terrorist factions inside the rebel factions. Those terrorists included the Muslim Brotherhood as well as al-Qaeda. Nevertheless, Senator John McCain said the rebels were his heroes. Qadhafi made a fatal mistake, literally, by working toward one currency for Africa, which threatened the West. The idea of a...

    Qasim Rashid is an Ahmadi Muslim; I debated him here. Despite the fact that Ahmadis are persecuted, oppressed and slaughtered in Muslim countries, Qasim Rashid carries water for his oppressors and furthers the Islamic supremacist war against freedom of speech. He also whitewashes the Qur'an's justification for domestic abuse. Nuts. Fox News publishes piece whitewashing jihad violence and proselytizing for Ahmadi Islam Robert Spencer at Jihadwatch Fair and balanced. Can you imagine Fox, or any other news outlet, running a piece like this proselytizing for Christianity? Exhorting people to revere and follow Pope Francis? Media Matters would be in an...

He refused to enter his pleas and requested three more days, because an attorney has offered to represent him. Hasan wanted that time to decide on the new attorney. The judge said the request was "untimely" and called it an obstruction to the administration of the court martial. The military judge...

    Today in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, U.S. Ambassador James B. Smith and Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Director of the General Authority of Civil Aviation, Dr. Faisal bin Hamad Al-Sugair, signed an Open Skies air transport agreement. The United States-Saudi Arabia Open Skies agreement will, following a transition period, permit unrestricted air service by the airlines of both countries between and beyond the other’s territory, eliminating restrictions on how often the carriers fly, the kind of aircraft they use and the prices they charge. This agreement will allow for the strengthening and expansion of our strong trade and tourism links with Saudi Arabia,...

    IRS Tyrant Lois Lerner was former FEC Tyrant Terrorizing Conservative and Christian Groups while Refusing to Pursue Obama's Illegal and Foreign Contributions Obama's campaign contributions from Gaza Did you ever wonder why the FEC (Federal Election Commission) never took any action on all the charges about Obama's eligibility and foreign campaign donations? Longtime Atlas readers remember the blockbuster stories I broke during the early summer 2008 on illegal contributions, foreign contributions, contributions from Hamas-controlled areas in Gaza, and non-existent donors (scroll here). I documented it all in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Adminstration's War on America. Good article...

    Canadian jihadi under interrogation told Russians about Tamerlan Tsarnaev; they then told FBI (full title) Epic failure. Obama scrubbed our counter terror materials and manuals of jihad, so what would you expect to happen? Even in the wake of the blood and carnage, Eric Holder is admonishing Jews to be tolerant of Islam and warning of "anti-Muslim backlash." That's his takeaway. Canadian jihadi under interrogation told Russians about Tamerlan Tsarnaev; they then told FBI Jihadwatch And the FBI did nothing to stop the Boston Marathon jihad bombing. They received the warning but did nothing, because it had to do with...

    “Wahhabi” Islam The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 shook the United States to its core. Since those horrific moments, our nation has been thrust into a global war against terror and religious extremism. Now more than ever, it is of the utmost importance that we understand the thought processes of those who seek to destroy the very fabric of Western society. Nothing short of our way of life and our very existence are on the line. We cannot afford to lose. What could possibly drive people to murder innocent civilians on such a large scale? What would lead a...
