    Khan's latest attack on Trump: "Running for president is not an entitlement to disrespect Gold Star families and [a] Gold Star mother not realizing her pain. Shame on him! Shame on his family!" Khizr Khan said, struggling to hold back his anger. "He is not worthy of our comments. He has no decency. He is void of decency, he has a dark heart."
  • More than 5,000 Muslims Serving in US Military, Pentagon Says (December 8, 2015 story)

    Despite recent rhetoric against the fastest-growing religion in the world, Islam has contributed a great deal to the U.S., including in the military, Defense Department figures show. Muslims have played an essential part in guarding the homeland and fighting for its interests in war-torn countries the world over, fighting in all major U.S. wars, including the Civil War, World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War, according to military officials. More recently, Muslims have also served in the Gulf War, Iraq War and the war in Afghanistan. Here's what the numbers tell us. There are 5,896 self-identified Muslims...

    The ocean has gotten noisier for decades, with man-made racket from oil drilling, shipping and construction linked to signs of stress in marine life that include beached whales and baby crabs with scrambled navigational signals. The United States aims to change that as a federal agency prepares a plan that could force reductions in noise-making activities, including oil exploration, dredging and shipping off the nation’s coast.

    It’s a hot summer night, and leaders of the Satanic Temple have gathered in the crimson­-walled living room of a Victorian manse in this city renowned for its witch trials in the 17th century. They’re watching a sepia-toned video, in which children dance around a maypole, a spider crawls across a clown’s face and eerie, ambient chanting gives way to a backward, demonic voice-over. The group chuckles with approval. They’re here plotting to bring their wisdom to the nation’s public elementary school children. They point out that Christian evangelical groups already have infiltrated the lives of America’s children through after-school...

    PITTSBURGH, Pa., July 30 - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton toured the U.S. Rust Belt on Saturday, promising to reject bad international trade deals during a factory visit and securing the endorsement of investor Mark Cuban at a Pittsburgh rally. The Dallas Mavericks owner, who said as recently as last month that there was a "good chance" he would vote for Donald Trump, instead criticized the Republican nominee's leadership in front of an energetic crowd. "Leadership is not yelling and screaming and intimidating," Cuban said. You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jagoff!" Cuban added,...

After drifting aimlessly for eight days and running out of drinking water, Columbus vowed if the winds returned, he would name the first land he saw after the Holy Trinity. The winds returned and on JULY 31, 1498, he sighted an island off the coast of Venezuela which coincidentally had three peaks rising from the bay. Columbus obtained fresh water for...

    Hillary Clinton made history, but that may not be enough to get her to 270. Some Democrats are still worried that Donald Trump might win, given the level of volatility this election cycle, how Trump deflects media attacks like Teflon, and the high level of Democratic discontent within their own ranks over ClintonÂ’s nomination. Those feelings were intensified when leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee showed staffers trying to find ways to derail Sen. Bernie SandersÂ’ campaign. The amount of booing, even during ClintonÂ’s acceptance speech Thursday night just highlighted those divisions within the Democratic Party (via The Hill):...

When he did, and passed out on the couch, she got a gasoline can, poured fuel all over him and dropped a lit match on his chest. He survived with mild burns, and later quit drinking. One time when J.D.’s mom took exception to something the boy said in the car, she hit the accelerator and sped up to 100 miles per hour, screaming that she was going to kill them both.

    A leader of the Druze population of the Golan Heights disputed the assertion of a United Nations committee that accused Israel of imposing economic and social hardships on his community. Dulan abu-Saleh, the mayor of Majdal Shams, the largest Druze town in the Golan, told Makor Rishon that the U.N.

Unlike other Druze populations in Israel serve in the Israel Defense Forces, the Golan’s Druze population of some 20,000 has been careful not to align itself publicly with the Jewish state, which annexed...

On July 29 Ralph Lauren and the United States Olympic Committee proudly unveiled the design of the US team’s 2016 Opening Ceremony uniforms. But while many people rushed to praise the stylish look of the new garments, others were quick to point out one very strange detail – the fact that the color pattern of athletes’ striped T-shirts sticking out of their buttoned-up blazers clearly resembles the Russian national...

    Schools have been told they may be breaking the law if they do not allow extra breaks in sports lessons for transgender pupils. Advice from councils warns that the practice of chest-binding – which is common among youngsters changing from female to male – can lead to ‘breathing difficulties and fainting’. And if pupils are put at risk or treated less favourably as a result of being transgender, schools could be in breach of discrimination legislation. Guidance on how to deal fairly with transgender pupils has been produced by a number of local authorities including Lancashire, Cornwall, Brighton and Hove,...

The profits recession is still in force. And what’s the Hillary Clinton plan? Tax us into prosperity.

Not when hormones rage. Islamic State projects strength. Strength is an aphrodisiac. Women are biologically programmed to be attracted to powerful men. That’s one reason some girls willingly put on black nose bags and flock to become ISIS brides.

    The Bolshevik/Menshevik crisis we saw in the first stages of the Russian Revolution is bubbling to the surface in our country through the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party today reflects an updated version of the Bolshevik/Menshevik split of the early 20th century. In 1903, the Russian Social-Democratic Labor Party (communist) split into two opposing groups, the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks. Vladimir Lenin, leader of the pro-dictatorial Bolsheviks, defined the difference between the two groups, as one being "hard" (Bolsheviks) and the other being "soft," led by Leon Trotsky, Georgi Plekhanov, Julius Martov, and others. Both were for the overthrow of...

Though the new movie’s marketing has shifted somewhat to include more outreach to potential male viewers, a tweet posted by the official “Ghostbusters” Twitter account sent a very different message.

    In a moment of truly blinding irony, NARAL’s president called for Americans to elect Hillary Clinton as president so she could stand against bullies. The Democratic National Convention made history for women this week. No, I’m not referring to Hillary Clinton receiving the nomination, making her the first woman to be running for president for a major political party. I’m talking about Ilyse Houge, the president of NARAL. She shared with the nation that not only does she champion abortion rights, she has had an abortion for nonmedical reasons. Since Hogue missed a basic tenet of ethics, I will spell...

    PHOENIX - A man waiting to board a Southwest plane at Phoenix Sky Harbor Thursday night was booted from the flight for his vulgar t-shirt. But he thinks his punishment was politically motivated. The T-shirt Kevin (he declined to share his last name) was wearing said “F*** Trump.” “I mean there was another guy who just had a middle finger on his shirt but they didn't say nothing to him,” Kevin told ABC15 on Friday. Kevin thinks the problem wasn't the bad word, but rather the target of that aggressive language. “What's really the problem? Are you a Trump fan...

    In the end, it always comes down to money. An Article I wrote last year about Alexis Tsipras: A Charismatic New World Leader Emerges and Takes Control of Greece An Excerpt: “His name is Alexis Tsipras, and it seems that he meets much of the criteria of the prophesied Antichrist He was just elected as the Prime Minister of Greece. He is an atheist and a far left winger. His party in Greece is called SYRIZA. He has appeared out of nowhere in the last couple of years, almost magically. He has landed himself in a most precarious situation. Greece...

    It’s been a long and contentious week so let’s close out the day on something positive. A mom in Texas decided to celebrate the anniversary of the day a local police officer saved her daughter’s life by hiring a professional photographer to capture their tea party reunion. Corporal Patrick Ray saved Bexley Norvell’s life last year when the girl choked on a coin. From CNN: “Her lips were completely blue,” her mother, Tammy Norvell, 41, told CNN. She called 911, and Ray was there within minutes. “I could not believe how fast he got here,” Norvell said. He was able...
