    This keeps happening on and off and it's driving me crazy. When I click on someone's name to find their comment history - either with a search on "user", or going to their profile page and clicking "in forum", I see one page of comments. Then when I click on "next page", I am taken to the page of articles they've posted. It's important to be able to see peoples' posting history sometimes - looking for a specific comment, or on a thread, or checking for trollhood either with comment tone/topic, or posting history.

    Geert Wilders, leader of the nationalist Dutch Freedom Party, wants a ban on pretty much much everything that has to do with Islam. Wilders released a manifesto Thursday for how the Freedom Party plans to reverse the “Islamization” of the country between 2017-2021. The platform includes bans on mosques, Islamic schools, the Koran, headscarves on women and Muslim immigration. Wilders has been able to gain popularity at home despite going on trial several times for “inciting hatred” with his remarks against Islam Recent polls suggest the Freedom Party may become the largest in next year’s election. The party is still...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals. The junior Alabama senator told co-host Tucker Carlson ending the “lawlessness” must be the first priority of the president. “He has not changed his view, but he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of...

    A senior staffer at the Republican National Committee (RNC) told Breitbart News Saturday GOP presidential candidate Donald J.

Despite letting the fat cats of Wall Street slip away without a single conviction following the worst financial collapse in this nation's history – leaving more than 20% of all homes in New York still underwater -- in the last year, Eric Schneiderman has instructed his office of more than 650 attorneys to instead focus their attention and significant taxpayer resources -- on far more mundane matters such as preventing the merger of two online...

    Donald Trump has named Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions the chairman of his national security advisory committee, the Republican frontrunner's campaign announced Thursday evening. Sessions, who became the first senator to endorse Trump earlier this week, will advise the candidate on matters of foreign policy and national security. "We need to understand the limits of our ability to intervene successfully in other nations," said Sessions, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, in a statement. "It is time for a healthy dose of foreign policy realism. In the Middle East, this means forming partnerships based on shared interests, not merely...

    The idea of practicing virtue to help and respect others is not absent from any part of the world. It is a basic law found everywhere. Therefore, no one has an excuse to not follow it. If we ever expect to have peace in the world, this is certainly where we can begin. The importance of this was well stated by Mohandas Gandhi: "To injure a single human being is to injure those divine powers within us, and thus the harm reaches not only that one human being, but with him the whole world." This makes it clear that whatever...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The "conspiracy of silence" that protected Jerry Sandusky extended all the way to the top at Penn State, prosecutors said Thursday as they charged former university President Graham Spanier with hushing up child sexual abuse allegations against the former assistant football coach. Prosecutors also added counts against two of Spanier's former underlings, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, who were already charged with lying to a grand jury. Spanier's lawyers issued a statement that asserted his innocence and described the new charges as an attempt by Gov. Tom Corbett to divert attention from the three-year investigation that...

    LIBERTY, Mo. – Prosecutors are charging a Missouri woman with forging her father's signature on a document doctors relied on to take him off of life support. Legal experts say there's little precedent in the case, which essentially accuses her of "death by forgery." Retired accountant William Van Note and his companion were shot by a home intruder in October 2010. Sharon Dickson was killed and Van Note was critically wounded by a gunshot to the head. He died four days later, after 44-year-old Susan Elizabeth Van Note told doctors her father would prefer to die rather than be kept...

    A bloody attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that left American ambassador Christopher Stevens, two marines and a communications officer dead was a planned ambush by terrorists using a pro-Islam protest as cover, it has been claimed. The victims died during a rocket attack when an armed mob set fire to the consulate in Benghazi after joining a protest over a 'blasphemous' film about the Prophet Mohammed. It is believed a 'small, vicious group' of attackers used the protest as a diversion, although questions remain over whether the killers drummed up support for the march or simply took advantage...

    Published September 10, 2012 | LiveScience Archaeologists have found an ancient water reservoir in Jerusalem that may have been used by pilgrims coming to the Temple Mount, the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced. The IAA said the cistern could have held 66,000 gallons (250 cubic meters) of water; it likely dates back to the era of the First Temple, which, according to the Hebrew Bible, was constructed by King Solomon in the 10th century B.C. and then destroyed 400 years later. Israeli archaeologists believe the reservoir served the general public in the ancient city, but say its location hints at...

    ....But while Roberts may have saved Obama's signature domestic legislation — and perhaps his reelection campaign — by siding with the court's liberal wing, he actually did it in spite of Obama, not because of him. Roberts' opened his opinion today by declaring, unequivocally, that the individual mandate — which requires people to buy insurance or pay a penalty — is not constitutional under the Commerce Clause or the Necessary and Proper Clause. It's a direct shot at the Obama administration's defense of the law's constitutionality, which largely relied on those two clauses, which give Congress the power to regulate...

    Imagine if you could get full salary and benefits for a decent paying job and you didn’t have to work to get it. All you had to do was be accused of a crime. What crime, you ask? How about molesting school kids? That’s what the teachers‘ unions in states like California and New York State are doing: coddling accused criminals — at your expense. And it’s probably going on elsewhere as well. Believe it or not, New York is a lot tougher on them than California. From the New York Post: "At the beginning of his 32-year career as...

    A lower court's "hostility" towards Christianity will stand after the U.S. Supreme Court today refused to intervene in a school district's censorship of a kindergartener's choice of literature for a class reading. "By refusing to hear Mrs. Busch's case, the U.S. Supreme Court has endorsed the kind of hostility toward religion that should never be found in an American public school," said John W. Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, which took on the Newtown Square, Pa., case. As WND reported, Donna Busch accepted an invitation to visit her son Wesley's kindergarten classroom at Culbertson Elementary School to read a...

    A friend I know via the internet told me yesterday that he, and now his little daughter, have a strain of MRSA that is resistant to "almost everything". His seems to be improving somewhat, but hers is not. Although I have never met him, he is almost like a brother because of the wonderful conversations we have had about God, truth and the meaning of life. If anyone would like to pray for their wellbeing, I would greatly appreciate it, as other than prayer, I can do nothing to help them, and ultimately, the Supreme Lord is our only refuge.

    ANKARA, Turkey, April 6 -- President Obama made his most direct outreach to Muslims around the world Monday, telling Turkey's Grand National Assembly that the United States "is not and never will be at war with Islam." "Our partnership with the Muslim world is critical in rolling back a violent ideology that people of all faiths reject," Obama told the assembly. "The future must belong to those who create, not those who destroy. That is the future we must work for, and we must work for it together." (snip) During his campaign, Obama consistently played down connections to Islam, rarely...

    Al Qaeda's military commander in Afghanistan has threatened India with further attacks if the country attacks Pakistan. "India should know that it will have to pay a heavy price if it attacks Pakistan," Mustafa Abu Yazid said in a recently released videotape. "The Mujahideen will sunder your armies into the ground, like they did to the Russians in Afghanistan." In the videotape, Yazid referred to the November 2008 terror assault in Mumbai, saying the Indians suffered "humiliation" in the attack and more was in store if India decides to retaliate against Pakistan, the BBC reported. The 62-hour terror spree in...

    INDIA SAYS it is keeping open the option of a military strike against Pakistan, which it blames for last month's terrorist attack on its financial and film capital, Mumbai, in which over 175 people died. "Terrorism remains a scourge for our region," said foreign minister Pranab Mukherjee said at the weekend. "If a country [Pakistan] cannot keep the assurances that it has given, then it obliges us to consider the entire range of options that exist to protect our interests and people from this menace." On Saturday Mr Mukherjee and defence minister AK Antony attended a meeting of India's three...

    A dispute over who should pay to protect Nato and US military supplies crossing Pakistan is hampering efforts to secure the main lifeline for foreign troops in Afghanistan. Pakistan's Government, recently bailed out by the IMF, wants the shipping companies carrying the supplies to pay for the extra security on the main route from the port of Karachi via the Khyber Pass to Afghanistan. Militants have staged several attacks on the route in the past month, torching 260 vehicles the week before last, and killing three people on the Khyber Pass yesterday. ...snip...

    The Islamic fundamentalists who run the Markaz-e-Taiba complex near Lahore like to boast that it was inspired by Aitchison College, Pakistan's poshest private school. It is, as they describe it, the Eton of Wahhabi Islam, complete with polo ponies and a swimming pool. Yet when it comes to their links to Pakistan's intelligence service and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the militant group blamed for last month's attacks in Mumbai, they seem to suffer from collective amnesia. “We've never had any connection to either,” Mohammed Abbas, the administrator of the complex, told The Times. But it was here, in April 2001, that Hafiz...
