According to Biggs, the Vice President of the Border Patrol Council was reportedly silenced by Federal administrators and told to keep quiet about the possibility of Islamic State militants organizing for an attack within the domestic United States. For their part, the Obama Administration completely denied the reports. On Tuesday DHS issued the following statement: “There is no credible intelligence to suggest that there is an active plot by ISIL to attempt to...

If an adult tries to help (grandparents, parents, anyone), he pushes them out the door so we have to peek in a crack to make sure he's doing it right. He climbs up on the seat, squats with one foot on each side and dangles his junk down so he hits...

    As both an active member of the pro-life movement and a law student, I am frequently confronted with the fact that the vast majority of activists on both sides of the abortion debate have many misconceptions about what Roe v. Wade actually says about the legality of abortion. Most of this arises from the fact that they have not read the case themselves, or if they did read it, they were unable to understand it due to a lack of legal training. My goal is to attempt to clear up four of the most common myths surrounding Roe v. Wade,...

    Oh, the irony. The liberal feminist media are proving to be trailblazers. At least, that is, for male comedians. Abortion is “a funny word” – just like “guacamole” – according to comedian Stephen Colbert’s latest segment. For his Sept. 15 “The Colbert Report” show, Colbert invited actress Mindy Kaling on as a guest to discuss her comments against abortion sitcoms. Following Colbert’s lead, Kaling admitted her show “might” find a “hilarious take on abortion” in the future. Kaling, who garnered fame with “The Office,” now writes, produces and stars as an obg-yn in Fox comedy “The Mindy Project.” During a...

    Despite the best efforts of the World Health Organization and Doctors Without Borders, Ebola is expected to rage on in West Africa for another 12-18 months, with 20,000 cases predicted. Without coordination of relief efforts, the ability to contain the disease is limited and has been labeled a “failure” to date. Countries are sending supplies and equipment in piecemeal fashion. The U.S., for example, is setting up a 25 bed hospital for its part. Unfortunately, it’s far too little to make a dent in the epidemic. It’s difficult for a person in a developed country to believe that medical systems,...

Cows have always remained at the top of the holy animal hierarchy and are respected as "Go matha" or mother cow, who fulfills all the needs of her children; a gift of the gods. 'Gopujas' are also performed in various parts of India during festival seasons to worship cows. Recently, with an additional eye...
