    CEDAR RAPIDS — Caches of guns and ammunition bound for Beruit were secreted among boxes of goods collected in a clothing drive for Syria and Lebanon organized by a Cedar Rapids company, federal authorizes said Tuesday. Authorities said they intercepted two shipments and seized more than 152 firearms and ammunition. It was not disclosed who the weapons were intended for in Lebanon. Three Cedar Rapids men and a woman were taken into custody and were scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon to face charges of conspiracy and knowingly shipping illegal weapons. The four, according to a federal affidavit, are...

    Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Throughout the week Pam Geller has been singled out as someone who unfairly provoked Muslims into attacking her by having a Mohamhead drawing contest. Nobody will disagree that to Islam drawing a picture of their death cult leader is the same as poking a lion with a stick, the question is should she. The secular answer according to the media is mostly no, she should not yell fire in a crowded theater, in her case the theater is on fire while...

My earlier articles documented some of the first initial reports of this mysterious group’s existence, leading up to this development. Currently, the best existing source compiling all information on the Mont Order society into a single dossier has been put together by author Liam Quaid and is available at a new website called the Mont Order Conspiracy Observatory.

Her son, who had previously lived in Colorado for a period of time, disagreed with some of the anti-pot points that were being made by school officials." The school called the police.

    The Obama administration is unfairly blocking tens of thousands of military veterans from owning guns, a Republican senator is charging. The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is filled with military veterans who are essentially banned from owning guns, even though they may not be a danger to society, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote this week in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder. The gun ban "effectively voids their Second Amendment rights,” Grassley said. At issue is whether these veterans are suffering from mental illnesses. According to a 2013 Senate report, the Department of...

People Magazine published a teaser for the film Sunday, which was first screened in January at the Sundance Film Festival. Sensational in content but not in tone, Going Clear has been making headlines since its first screening at Sundance in January.

The church’s disclosures, in a series of essays online, are part of an effort to be transparent about its history at a time when church members are increasingly encountering disturbing claims about the faith on the Internet. Many Mormons, especially those with polygamous ancestors, say they were well aware that Smith’s successor, Brigham Young, practiced polygamy...

It promises to be one of the largest cult gatherings in U.S. history. And it will take place two days before President Obama and world leaders gather for an “emergency” climate summit at the United Nations. The march is the brainchild of Bill McKibben, a celebrated environmental activist.

    You would see me across the room when we arrived on Saturday night for staff dinner. You’d signal to me in a personal and private way that you wanted me to sit with you. And you always positioned me just directly across from you. You’d slide your feet out of your shoes and play footsies with me. You would use your feet to feel But rather than offering that protection, you exploited that situation. You asked me to tell you how it felt. To tell you if my body was aroused by their touches. You wanted vivid details. But you...

    .....In the past few months, Clinton has concluded a big book tour with dozens of news interviews; distanced herself (either in small or substantial ways) from her party’s currently unpopular president; and is now heading next month to Iowa, which traditionally holds the first presidential nominating contest. What’s significant about all of this activity, Democrats say, is that the more she walks and talks like a presidential candidate – effectively freezing out any other Democrats even contemplating a run – the more difficult it becomes to turn around and say no. “The longer it goes, the harder it becomes for...

For Al Gore and other politicians, it’s just another means to control the masses, but the religious aspect of Global Warming is ultimately how they are able to convince so many people that it truly does exist and man is responsible for creating it.To really explain what it is I mean, I need to...

The pope said women were "the most beautiful thing God has made". And he added: "Theology cannot be done without this feminine touch." He agreed not enough was said about women and promised that steps were being taken to remedy the situation. But when his interviewer, the Vatican...
