    President Obama has engaged in “propaganda” encouraging people to “hate the police,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) charged a day after two city police officers were shot and killed in their patrol car by a man who posted anti-police messages to his social media account.

    **SNIP** Hours after their deaths, police unions and certain conservative allies are taking the slayings as deadly confirmation of what they've believed all along: pro-Garner protesters and Mayor Bill de Blasio are abandoning the NYPD at a time when their public perception is at an unprecedented low. The deaths have turned de Blasio's already-tense relationship with the NYPD into a full-blown crisis, with police unions pointing the finger at the mayor for siding with protesters. Strong words: The Sergeants Benevolent Association, one of several police union groups that has a rocky history with the mayor, blamed de Blasio directly for...

    I recently marked a particular anniversary of my birth.  I won’t say my age but it’s a prime number multiplied by ten, older than 30 and not yet 70.  I didn’t mark the day in any particular way.  Yeah there was a “happy birthday” from my wife and kids, but no huge celebration.   I didn’t want one. Passing that milestone makes one somewhat introspective and brooding about the arc of one’s life.  I was just twenty, for God’s sake!  What happened to all those years?  I still feel like a big kid.  I still watch Looney Tunes (love Road...

    Back in October, I posted about the story that people were avoiding needed medical care because the Obamacare plans involved high deductibles or co-pays. Under Obamacare as it exists now, Americans are basically paying insurance premiums and not getting anything in return. If they avoid the doctor to avoid paying their deductible then they will probably never reach the point that the insurance company has to start helping them with expenses.

    Outside of perhaps a drum circle or Phish concert, there are few things progressives enjoy more than dead people. It’s a fetish … It’s what makes some people love feet and makes Bill Clinton a chubby-chaser. The foot-fetish people are at least consistent – they are in to virtually all feet. But progressives’ fetishizing of dead people is very, very specific – they love dead black men who were killed by white men. Crime statistics show that if you’re the victim of a crime, particularly a violent one, it is highly likely the perpetrator looks like you. To a normal...

A classic writing by St. Cyprian comes to mind. It is a meditation on the fundamental human struggle to be free of undue attachment to this world and to have God (and the things waiting for us in Heaven) as our highest priority.In this meditation, St. Cyprian has in mind the Book of James and...

    Before President Obama announces his executive amnesty plan, Don Rosenberg has just one question for the president: Can he, with an executive order, bring his son who was killed by an illegal immigrant back to life? “While your Executive Order pad is out, can you write one to bring my son and the tens of thousands (actually over 100,000) killed by illegal aliens back to life and to bring our destroyed families back together?” he wrote to Obama. His son, Drew, 25, was run over by an illegal immigrant on November 16, 2010. “I know that shortly you will be...

The total of 14,413 cases in eight countries includes 1,187 deaths in Sierra Leone, 1,166 in Guinea and 2,812 in Liberia. The Liberian toll has been revised downwards from 2,836 because of reclassification, the WHO said.

On Sept. 23, Ruby Graupera-Cassimiro, 40, had her daughter, Taily, during a routine cesarean section, but there were complications. "Suddenly, I got called overhead. They said, 'Dr. Fleischer straight to the OR,' and I rushed up, and as soon as I got there she was already intubated, and most of the team had already arrived assessing the situation," obstetrician Dr. Michael Fleischer said. Graupera-Cassimiro's heart stopped for 45 minutes after amniotic fluid entered her bloodstream and heart and created...

    Obama has summoned the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – making manifest his goal of "fundamentally transforming America.” Part I of “The Four Horseman,” described the growing power of Obama’s plans for the “fundamental transformation” (destruction) of our nation, and the “Four Horsemen” he employs to affect that transformation: Death, War, Conquest, and Famine. We examined in detail Obama’s Magnum Opus, Obamacare, its intended destruction of our healthcare system and the consequent enslavement of the population to the whims and caprice of the Administrative State, and, more alarming than this, Obamacare’s comprehensive obliteration of most freedoms Americans still take for...

He says Fellenbaum, his wife, and girlfriend, Tait, all lived together in a mobile home in West Caln Township and worked at a local Walmart.

    Imagine being torn apart, limb from limb until you bled to death. That would be excruciating pain, right? This is not a mere cruel thought about the medieval act of quartering. A modern day punishment is being inflicted on innocent, vulnerable human beings who can feel pain. The 1999 U.S. Supreme Court case of Stenberg v. Carhart reveals the ugly reality of abortion of pain-capable pre-born children via dismemberment, where the child’s arms and legs are twisted off by the abortionist using a steel clamp. Dr. Carhart, the abortionist on trial, confirmed that the preborn child can be alive at...

He directed them east across Franklin County, away from the Far West Side apartment that he shared with Samantha Greenlee, a 22-year-old woman who had told her family she was 3 months pregnant with Ferrero’s child. Just east of Madison Christian Church at 3565 Bixby Rd. in Groveport, Ferrero directed detectives to stop and pull into a gravel drive. It was the church’s rustic outdoor chapel, just a few wooden benches and an altar clustered among a...

    Islamic State militants fighting in Syria and Iraq have released a sickening video of a young woman being stoned to death by a group of men - including her own father. The shocking footage is understood to have been filmed in the city of Hama and shows a bearded cleric ranting at the woman in Arabic and accusing her adultery while she pleads for her life. The woman turns to her father and begs his forgiveness but he coldly rejects her, saying he would rather please God. He then turns to the men to give the signal for his daughter's...

We have a responsibility to stay connected to them and help them see this through.” Quammen was merely saying out loud what the multiculturalists in the Obama administration, the president...

    Islam isn't just at the heart of the terror threat posed by the Islamic State. The religion is also contributing to the other major crisis plaguing the globe: the spread of Ebola. Washington and its media stenographers won't tell you this, lest they look intolerant, but Islamic burial rituals are a key reason why health officials can't contain the spread of the deadly disease in West Africa. Many of the victims of Ebola in the three hot-spot nations there — Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as neighboring Liberia — are Muslim. Roughly 73% of Sierra Leone's and about 85%...

    By all accounts Brittany Maynard’s is a life well lived. Sure, we’re not God, so we have no idea where she stands eternally. We don’t know if she’s sought the forgiveness for her sins that is found only in Jesus Christ, but we can pray that she has before it’s too late. However, from what we can humanly see, Maynard has lived a life of courage and adventure—even climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Sadly, though, it now seems she may not live to see her 30th birthday. In April, the 29-year old Maynard was diagnosed with a stage four malignant brain tumor....

    Until as recently as 1987, British coal pits employed caged canaries as sentinels that alerted miners to the presence of poisonous gases. Being more sensitive to them than we are, the birds would get distressed before the gases reached levels that are dangerous to humans, giving the miners time to evacuate and avoid suffocation. According to new research, the sense of smell is the canary in the coalmine of human health. A study published today in the open access journal PLOS ONE, shows that losing one’s sense of smell strongly predicts death within five years, suggesting that the nose knows...

    Old people are such a burden. Democrats seem to love death. Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage. They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy. Enter Ezekiel Emanuel. Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm. Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death...

    A common theme in the failure of armed robbers is the problem of becoming distracted, if only for one or two seconds.   That is all the time a prospective victim needs to access a weapon and strike a fatal blow or three.   Robbers want compliance and money or goods.   They generally do not want murder, at least until after they get the goods or money, which compliance helps them to obtain.   In this case in Phoenix, the would be robber was distracted, and loses the subsequent gunfight.   From kpho.com;  Crump is a police Sargent: The suspect walked up to...

    GENEVA— The World Health Organization reports more than 800,000 people die by suicide every year. WHO, which is launching its first global report on suicide prevention, said more people die from suicide than from conflicts, wars and natural disasters combined.

Despite this shockingly high statistic, WHO said only a handful of countries have policies aimed at suicide prevention. WHO Director of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Shekhar Saxena said there also is much more that communities can do to provide support for vulnerable people....

    San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon charged the aunt of a 2-year-old killed by a hit-and-run driver with felony child endangerment. Loyresha Gage, 25, didn't run over her niece Mi'yana Gregory as the toddler stood alone in a crosswalk after 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 15; an unknown hit-and-run driver hit the child. Yet it is Gage who has been charged with a felony. If convicted, she faces years in prison. I cannot be alone in my first reaction to this story. What was Gage doing taking a little girl and her twin brother to see "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on...

It is only within the 150 years that they have come to be regarded as “diseases” that can and should be treated by the medical profession. Most anti-anxiety drugs, or anxiolytics, belong to a class of chemical compounds called benzodiazepines, a category which includes alprazolam (Xanax), lorazepam (Ativan), diazepam (Valium), olanzapine (Zyprexa), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), clonazepam (Klonopin, Clozaril, Leponex), and estazolam (Prosom).

    The decisions that determined the fate of the great nations and empires that failed to survive the 20th century are well known. For the Kaiser's Germany, it was the "blank cheque" to Austria after Sarajevo. For Great Britain, the 1939 war guarantee to Poland. For the Third Reich, it was the June 1941 invasion of Russia. For the Empire of the Sun, the decision to attack Pearl Harbor. And for the Soviet Empire, it was the invasion of Afghanistan. As for the United States, historians may one day concur with the late Gen. Bill Odom. For the lone superpower to...
