    He was awarded the Navy's medal of heroism during World War II. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his book Profiles in Courage. He was the youngest elected President, serving just over 1,000 days before being shot. This was John F. Kennedy, born MAY 29, 1917. In the Introduction to a 16-volume American Heritage New Illustrated History of the United States (Dell Publishing Co., 1960), John F. Kennedy wrote: "History, after all, is the memory of a nation.

    A Los Angeles judge granted Amber Heard a temporary restraining order Friday against husband Johnny Depp, whom she claims has been abusive. The actor was ordered to stay away from Heard. She wanted the same order to apply to her dog, Pistol, but the judge wouldn’t go along, saying there was “insufficient showing of need to protect the dog.” Heard, 30, and Depp, 52, have been married since February 2015. Earlier this week, she filed for divorce. In her complaint, Heard alleges, “During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me.” “Johnny has had...

She’d spent the prior two years in and out of treatment facilities, her mother told NBC2, learning to cope with the horrors of the sex slave industry into which she had been trafficked at age 13. So when she tracked down her crush after school last week and he asked her for sex, her mother said through a victims’ advocate, the young teen agreed. But then word...

    Dozens of people fanned out Saturday to continue looking for a 15-year-old California girl who was abducted by a 19-year-old man, later shot dead by police. Search teams are focusing on an area near the Northern California town of Jenner. It's about 65 miles from where a witness saw Pearl Pinson abducted at gunpoint from a pedestrian bridge near her home in the Bay Area community of Vallejo on Wednesday morning. "She was forced into that car," Rose Pinson said through tears Friday, desperate to find her younger sister.

Clinton’s presidential campaign has failed to quiet the furor over the issue, which has dogged her for more than a year. In the next few weeks — just as the likely Democratic presidential nominee hopes to pivot towards a general election — it will face its toughest scrutiny yet. “All of that feeds...

    Indonesia has toughened its punishments for child rapists to include the death penalty and chemical castration. It follows outrage over several recent violent crimes, including the gang-rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl. President Joko Widodo said the regulation was "intended to overcome the crisis caused by sexual violence against children". Previously, the maximum sentence for rape, of either an adult or a child, was 14 years in jail. People jailed for sexual offences against children may also now be made to wear electronic monitoring devices after their release.

The Republican presidential hopeful has since dialed back the rhetoric, calling that earlier claim a joke. But — as in other areas of critical domestic and international concern —...

    The United Nations Security Council wants a global "framework" for censoring the Internet, as well as for using government propaganda to "counter" what its apparatchiks call "online propaganda," "hateful ideologies," and "digital terrorism." To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN "Counter-Terrorism Committee" — yes, that is a real bureaucracy — to draw up a plan by next year. From the Obama administration to the brutal Communist Chinese regime, everybody agreed that it was time for a UN-led crackdown on freedom of speech and thought online — all under the guise of fighting the transparently bogus...

    President Obama is taking a big step towards creating a national gun registry. Hawaii looks like it is about to provide the federal government with the list of all the gun owners in the state. Supposedly, keeping a list of gun owners’ names will enable the FBI to tell police if a gun owner ever gets arrested. But a national gun registry isn’t necessary to do this check. The FBI isn’t the only organization that can do background checks on already existing gun owners. Hawaii already has a gun registry, and can regularly run its list of names to see...

    Relatives of the woman shot to death on a San Francisco pier last year filed a lawsuit Friday saying the illegal immigrant accused in the killing should have been in custody if not for a series of mistakes by city and federal workers. The killing of Kate Steinle in July 2015 and the arrest of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez put San Francisco's leaders on the defensive as critics and outside politicians called for a change in the city's sanctuary law. Despite national outrage, San Francisco's Board of Supervisors on Tuesday upheld those protections for people in the country illegally. The...

    Over the months, Hillary Clinton misstated key facts about her use of private email and her own server for her work as secretary of state, the department's inspector general reported this week. According to the findings, she claimed approval she didn't have and declined to be interviewed for the report despite saying "I'm more than ready to talk to anybody anytime." Scrutiny of her unusual email practices appeared to be unwelcome, despite her contention those practices were well known and "fully above board." A look at some of Clinton's past claims about her unusual email set-up and how they compare...

    In an article published on Wednesday for the 16th anniversary of Israel’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon, the Lebanese paper Al-Safir detailed the deployment of the Hezbollah terrorist organization on the border — and revealed the Iran-proxy is digging tunnels into Israel. The article, which was translated and exposed by MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute), also discusses Hezbollah’s activities in Syria where it is propping up Bashar al-Assad’s regime, and it defined the Syrian front as a larger challenge than the fight with Israel, due to the terrorist group’s losses there and the damage to its operational abilities. The Lebanese...

    A divided Iowa Supreme Court on Friday banned judges from imposing life prison sentences without the possibility of parole on juveniles convicted of first-degree murder. The court ruled 4-3 that the sentence amounts to cruel and unusual punishment under the Iowa Constitution. Even juveniles who commit the most heinous crimes should someday have the option of proving to the Iowa Board of Parole that they have been rehabilitated and are fit for release, Justice Brent Appel wrote for the majority.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) -- From shootings on the Strip to the killing of a liquor store clerk who couldn't open a safe to an April weekend that saw five slayings in separate cases, crime is spiking in the shadows in Las Vegas - and spurring questions about causes and cures. The local sheriff, police union officials and district attorney have various theories about what's behind the body count: 64 homicides by the end of April, compared with 29 killings after the first four months of 2015; 75 slayings as of Wednesday, compared with 45 by the same date last year.
