    Thirty years from now, historians will mark the assassination of America’s Ambassador to Libya on September 11, 2012 as a more important event than the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. On “9/11,” the United States’ self-appointed role to provide relative peace in the Western World as the only military super-power was challenged for the first time since the collapse of the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s.

    MIAMI — Administrators at a charter school repeatedly failed to take action after a 7-year-old student was bullied and sexually assaulted by an older classmate to the point that he attempted suicide, the boy’s mother claims in a lawsuit filed Monday. The boy, identified only as “John” in the lawsuit, first told his mother in November 2011 that the 11-year-old boy “made me do something nasty” in the back of a school bus, according to a police report. The boy said he was forced to perform oral sex on the classmate, “J.R.” who warned him, “If you don’t do this,...

    Police claim that teacher Emmanuel Del Rosa, 27, “facilitated some students to carry out the hazing to limit behavioral problems within the classroom” during summer school at AB Miller High School in Fontana, California. Four students reportedly took part in the assault, authorities said in a statement. Police declined to release more details, citing the on-going investigation. Fernando Salgado, 18, is accused of attempted sodomy with a person under 18-years-old, rape, mayhem and child cruelty with the possibility of injury or death.

Its survey, involving more than 9,000 respondents across eight European Union nations as well as the United States, is the stuff of nightmares for EU officials desperately trying to keep the European project together against the backdrop of the biggest economic crisis in Europe since the 1930s. In the words of the report’s authors the European project “is a major casualty of the ongoing sovereign debt crisis,” with deep-seated disillusionment with the European single currency and the broader process of...

Obama is much more than the first president to be raised by a transsexual nanny in Indonesia. He's also the very first commander-in-chief to thank his drug dealer in his high school yearbook, instead of his mom.

    Jewish World Review ^ | Wesley Pruden
    Some of Barack Obama's best friends are Jews. He says so himself. (Who knew?) The Poles, not so much. Mr. Obama is afflicted with golden tongue disease (croesus tungitus, but not in medical dictionaries), which is common to those with an eloquent tongue, particularly if the tongue is forked and bleeds around the edges. The tongue is sometimes off and running before the brain is fully engaged. In the president's case, the disease is probably terminal. The president and his croesus tungitus have had a rough week. First he offended the Polish government with a reference to "Polish death camps"...

    If you're taking a refreshing dip in a pool with four other people, odds are one of you is urinating. This is not gross-out myth, but cold, depressing fact from a recent survey conducted by the Water Quality & Health Council, a scientific research group sponsored by the American Chemistry Council. The survey, conducted in April, asked nearly 1,000 adults whether they urinate in pools. One in five bravely admitted their mistakes. And those are the ones who admitted it.

    One day soon, America could wake up to a dozen eggs costing $8 or more. And unless you are involved in some aspect of farming or agriculture, you would never know that egg prices are about to skyrocket or the reason why. With food prices already increasing due to high grain and fuel costs, extraneous so-called animal welfare regulations are being imposed on U.S. food producers, large and small, by the animal rights powerhouse known as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

    Lech Walesa was once a trade-union activist. He was often arrested for speaking his mind against Communist oppression behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and for defying the Soviet Union. He was an electrician who, with no higher education, led one of the most profound freedom movements of the 20th century — Solidarity. He became president of Poland and swept in reforms, pushing the Soviet Union out of his homeland and moving the country toward a free-market economy and individual liberty. And President Obama doesn’t want him to set foot in the White House.

    WARSAW, Poland (AP) — President Barack Obama has written a letter to the Polish president expressing "regret" for an inadvertent verbal gaffe that caused a storm of controversy in Poland this week. Obama on Tuesday used the expression "a Polish death camp" while honoring a Polish World War II resistance hero rather than wording that would have made clear that he meant a death camp that Nazi Germany operated on Polish soil during its wartime occupation of Poland.

    When Justin Combs turned 16, his father, hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, gave him a $360,000 silver Maybach. When Justin Combs decided to play football in college, UCLA gave him a $54,000 scholarship. As UCLA confirmed this week that the recent graduate of New York's New Rochelle Iona Prep would enroll on a full athletic scholarship, some questioned if the cash-strapped school should pay for the education of the son of a man worth an estimated $475 million — and whether the 18-year-old should have accepted the offer.

    In 1959, the Middleboro Kiwanis Club in Massachusetts put up a large cross that said “WORSHIP” on it on a traffic island off one of the local freeways. It stood for 53 years. Then, a liberal lawyer spotted it. Now, the state may have to tear it down. According to CBS Local, the cross “sits mostly on town land. The state owns a small fraction of the traffic island where it is located, and thus, the ACLU says, the cross violates church and state separation laws.”

If and when the White House gets around to emailing the official schedule out, it will note that on the day that we learned unemployment has ticked back up to 8.2% and previous jobs numbers have been revised negatively, President Obama is not focused on the economy...

If such an assurance was given, it was surely worthless.

    Blaming GOP obstructionism for the lingering jobs crisis, Democratic leaders on Friday called on House Republicans to bring a long-term highway bill to the floor. The Democrats — led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) — noted that Friday's dismal jobs numbers included a steep decline — by 28,000 jobs — in construction employment. Reauthorizing transportation spending for two years, they argued, would help put those workers back on payrolls and stabilize the economy.

With a similar lawsuit filed by a Stratford, Ont., woman in February 2011, it means at least four Canadian women are now accusing border agents of sexual assault at the Canada-U.S. crossing, according to the lawyer for all three cases, Tom Wienner.

Some months ago, it was found that the Patriot Act was being interpreted by government departments in a way to aid their ongoing investigations, leading to calls that there was a “classified” element...

    If you have a family of four with an income of just under $50,000, they could end up paying more under the Cain plan. Currently, they are taxed around $3,850 in income tax. Under Cain’s plan, they would be taxed at 9 percent or pay $4,500. That’s $650 more. Although the family would save almost $4,000 in Social Security taxes, it would have to give up the child tax credit worth the same amount. Furthermore, it would pay an additional national sales tax of 9 percent on everything purchased, including groceries and clothes, which totals about $2,000. That means under...

    The system spies on people through a camera, using powerful software that detects the changes in emotions on a person's face. The system bases its results on studies that associate lying to things like sudden eye movements, lip biting, heavy breathing, swallowing, and rapid blinking. Thermal imaging technology then determines rise in temperature brought about by an increase in blood flow, which is another telltale sign of lying. Professor Hassan Ugail (the head of the research) says, "When someone is making something up on the spot, brain activity usually changes and you can detect this through the thermal camera."
