    As federal criminal statutes have ballooned, it has become increasingly easy for Americans to end up on the wrong side of the law. Many of the new federal laws also set a lower bar for conviction than in the past: Prosecutors don't necessarily need to show that the defendant had criminal intent.

    This story sounds like something you would hear out of China, not the United States. In Gould, Arkansas the city council is planning to pass an ordinance that forbids any group from forming or gathering that will discuss city matters without first getting city council approval – a clear violation of the First Amendment. They mayor is dead set against it but it appears from the video that they can override him: VIDEO This is tyranny on steroids. I can’t imagine this will stand up in court but it appears that the city council wants to test that theory. Just...

    While the majority of Americans believe that the country’s morality is poor and lacking, the gap between those looking for the moral high ground and those who believe we are already morally good is closing. A Thursday Gallup poll shows the number of Americans who believe the overall state of moral values in the U.S. is poor has dropped seven percentage points to 38 percent. Meanwhile, the number of those who believe the country's morality is excellent or good has risen eight percentage points to 23 percent. Fewer Americans also believe the country's moral values are getting worse. Sixty-nine percent,...

    Radical Islam is growing in Bosnia Information available to experts on international terrorism indicate that Bosnia Herzegovina is presently one of the epicenters of extremist Islamic circles in Europe, as it represents a hub for potential Islamic terrorists: the so called 'white' or 'European' Al-Qaeda . Money from Islamic countries that is laundered through 'humanitarian' organizations finances the religious education of at least 100,000 young Bosnian Muslims. In addition to such education, which follows the interpretations of Wahhabi Islam, there is another type of 'training' in various officially registered camps throughout the B-H Federation. There, the young and carefully selected...

    Press, Thy name is Immoral and Immorality. Lady Gaga says to Good Friday "Jesus is my Virtue, Judas is my demon" in her "Born this Way" album and the press has no clue why this is a problem. They hail it as "cutting edge" and "Brilliant" but they don't see the rampant immorality behind it or hail the immorality with the highest praise. The Lord Jesus Christ said to the woman, caught in Adultery' "Go and sin no more" and was truth and grace personified. Because He led a perfect sinless life, He was able to go to the Cross...

The New York Post reports that at the Brooklyn Public Library, “customers can watch whatever they want on the computer,” according to spokeswoman Malika Granville. That includes hardcore porn. Library officials offer extensions that can be used to obscure the view of a user’s monitor. They are...

    China is on course to overtake the US in scientific output possibly as soon as 2013 - far earlier than expected. That is the conclusion of a major new study by the Royal Society, the UK's national science academy. The country that invented the compass, gunpowder, paper and printing is set for a globally important comeback. An analysis of published research - one of the key measures of scientific effort - reveals an "especially striking" rise by Chinese science. The study, Knowledge, Networks and Nations, charts the challenge to the traditional dominance of the United States, Europe and Japan. The...

    CHINA used a top-secret SC-19 anti-satellite (ASAT) missile in a test last year against a target missile as part of a missile-defense system that remains shrouded in secrecy. The ASAT missile was fired against a new medium-range missile and details were disclosed in a State Department cable made public recently by WikiLeaks that included an outline of a diplomatic protest note to Beijing about both Chinese weapons programs. The cable provides the first detailed U.S. assessment of what defense officials say is a major strategic advancement in China’s military buildup. It reveals that China’s anti-satellite system was developed for use...

    LONDON, March 8 (Reuters) - Western cuts and swiftly rising defence spending in emerging economies are redrawing the global strategic map, a leading think-tank said on Tuesday, with the danger of conflicts between states also rising. In its annual Global Military Balance report, the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) said the shift in economic power was already beginning to have a real military effect and closing any strategic gap. "Western states' defence budgets are under pressure and their military procurement is constrained," said IISS director general John Chipman. "But in other regions -- notably Asia and the Middle...

    FRANKFURT — To hear family, friends and neighbors tell it, Arid Uka was a model youth: never involved in violence, or in trouble with the police, unlike many other young men in his predominantly immigrant neighborhood in Frankfurt. Mr. Uka, 21, they said, was calm and quiet. In 2005, he and some classmates won a government prize for a school project on how to prevent violence in society and posed proudly with Gerhard Schröder, then chancellor of Germany. The young man from Kosovo helped his mother at home, cleaned floors, took out the trash and even gave her half his...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - While Congress brawls over how to shrink a $1.6 trillion budget deficit this year, an even tougher battle has begun over cutting popular Social Security retirement benefits to achieve long-term savings. It's unclear whether Congress will be able to agree on how to reform the massive government pension program, which has provided a social safety net for the elderly since 1935. That in part will depend on whether President Barack Obama throws his weight behind a reform effort that politicians of all stripes fear could be full of political risks. While the president has invited a conversation...

    Like so many jihad plots and actual jihad attacks and attempted attacks these days, the jihad murder of two U.S. airmen and the wounding of two others outside the Frankfurt Airport in Germany Wednesday was initially dismissed as having nothing to do with terrorism. According to the German news agency DAPD, Boris Rhein, the interior minister for the German state of Hesse hurried to the airport and almost immediately declared that there were no indications that the shootings had been a terror attack. One wonders what actually would constitute a terrorist attack for such analysts. Would the murderer have to...

LinkedIn could be accessed as recently as Thursday morning, according to two regular users, one a Reuters employee and the other a business consultant, who declined to be identified.

North Korea’s official news agency reported on Feb. 15 that Meng had been received by North Korean leader Kim Jong-il the day before. The visit was initially seen as an endorsement of the plan for Kim Jong-un to succeed his father Kim Jong-il as the country’s leader, as...
