    Donald Trump has added a press conference at his Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., on Super Tuesday, fueling speculations of another high-profile endorsement. The billionaire will host separate campaign rallies in Ohio and Kentucky during the day Tuesday, before arriving in Florida. Some speculate that Florida Gov. Rick Scott could announce his support of Trump at the press conference, which is scheduled two weeks before Florida's Republican primary. Scott has not yet endorsed a candidate, but the two-term governor praised Trump's ability to attract frustrated Republican voters in an op-ed published in January by USA Today.

    Israel is still responding angrily to France's proposal yesterday to call an international peace conference with Israel and the Palestinians - and to unilaterally recognize the state of "Palestine," should the conference fail to bring peace. Political officials told Arutz Sheva that they wonder "whether France will propose an international conference with ISIS, after it armed and spread terror in France?" Another official explained that "The French proposal effectively gives the Palestinians an excuse to blow up the talks and still get all they want without negotiating at all." He added: "This is a mistaken approach. Why should the Palestinians...

According to Inna Shevchenko, a spokeswoman for the feminist protest group, two fundamentalist preachers were discussing the question of whether wives should be beaten or not when the activists, aged 25 and 31, ripped off their Arab-style cloaks and jumped on to the stage on Saturday evening. One had the slogan No one subjugates me inked across her torso. The other bore the words I am my own prophet. The protesters, aged 25 and 31, grabbed microphones and shouted...

    The White House did not invite the most senior American official charged with preventing terrorist attacks the F.B.I. director, James B.

But Mr. Comeys Russian counterpart Aleksandr V.

Since the November 2014 report, the head of the Oregon Department of Education sent a letter in December 2014 to Oregon school superintendents that claimed the content delivered by the presenters at the 2014 Adolescent Sexuality Conference was appropriate.

    Well, well well.. There he is. President Obama, Calderon and Harper; The leaders of U.S., Mexico and Canada standing together on the White House lawn talking about health care, "American gun trafficking to Mexico", etc..What really struck me was Obama's comment in response to a question on Obamacare. Obama said, "We're confident this Law will be OVER---, uh, UPHELD". Freudian slip, perhaps or just a MAJOR GAFFE?? Then, Calderon went on to congratulate America for "following Mexico's lead on health care coverage for all", snicker snicker..As usual, much discussion on "American gun trafficking to Mexico" with NO mention of Fast...

    ...notes from...Utah Valley Universitys Mormonism and the Internet conference. ...Joanna Brooks, The Challenge of Mormon Studies for the Digital Age...Charge of modern Mormon duplicity: behind...public image of friendly clean-cut family types...are dark secrets and a sinister agenda. Brooks cites Daymon Smiths ideas on Mormon discursive practices: trustworthy (official LDS) versus untrustworthy (other) sources; insider versus outsider narratives; guarded public speech to avoid open discussion of private LDS knowledge. Do Mormons have a divided sense of self? Do LDS scholars write to different (insider and outsider) audiences? Traditional theocratic control of LDS history and sources contrasted source world of modern...

    Anti-Israel activists who have gathered this weekend at Harvard University's "One State Conference" were told yesterday that the Jewish people do not exist. Prof. Susan M. Akram of Boston University's School of Law told the gathering that there is no legal basis for Jewish self-determination--at all: Israels claim of a state, on the basis of exclusive and discriminatory rights to Jews [sic], has never been juridically recognized. In other words, the concept of the Jewish people as a national entity with extraterritorial claims has never been recognized under international law. Similar denials of the Jewish people's existence and rights enabled...

    The relentless decline of Capitalism has begun. The time has come to fight against poverty. Time to obliterate the injustices. Time for the correct system. So declares a video promoting the global Caliphate Conference 2012 next month in Austria, suggesting the correct system is an international Islamic-based one replacing capitalism, which the video blames for catastrophe, civil war, and never-ending poverty. Organized by the fundamentalist Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, the conference will take place on March 10th south of Vienna. ... a similar conference scheduled for March 4th in Belgium was cancelled after local opposition. The Blaze reported on the...
