    CARACAS, Venezuela—A gun-toting retired Venezuelan general has become a folk hero to the country's opposition and galvanized a protest movement by defying the government of President Nicolás Maduro, engaging in a Rambo-like standoff with security forces sent by the president to arrest him. Angel Vivas has been holed up in his home in a hilly Caracas suburb since last weekend, when Mr. Maduro, on live television, ordered his arrest for having backed student protests that have convulsed this oil-rich nation. When black-clad officers from military intelligence went to the retired Army general's house Sunday morning, he emerged wearing a flak...

    The Liberal Bastion Of San Francisco Suspends A Shocking Number Of Black Kids For 'Willful Defiance' The Center for Public Integrity Susan FerrissDec. 12, 2013, 9:57 AM One of America's most liberal bastions — San Francisco — has cut student suspensions by nearly a third in three years but continues to struggle with grossly disproportionate suspensions of black students. District data obtained by Public Counsel, the country's largest pro bono legal group, and community organizers in San Francisco show that African-American students represented only 8 percent of the city's public high school kids last school year. Yet 50 percent of...

    The Christians of the first century were rebels with a cause. They weren’t the hair-spray-addicted, religious sponges of pop culture and oppressive governments looking to be ogled by an Oprah-addled crowd or breastfed by some big government tit . Oh, no, senorita. The primitive church was out to change the world. After Jerusalem fell in AD 70, the church, birthed by the Holy Spirit during Rome’s heyday, exploded with growth in Asia Minor — which happened to be Ground Zero for Caesar worship. The punch-drunk citizens of Roman rule thought the various Caesars, their laws, and their government were...

    August Landmesser (born May 24, 1910; missing and presumed dead Oct 17, 1944; declared dead in 1949) was a worker at the Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Germany, best known for his appearance in a photograph refusing to perform the Nazi salute at the launch of the naval training vessel Horst Wessel on 13 June 1936. August Landmesser was the only child of August Franz Landmesser and Wilhelmine Magdalene (née Schmidtpott). He joined the Nazi Party (NSDAP) in 1931 in hope of getting a job. When he became engaged to the Jewish woman Irma Eckler in 1935, he was...

The launch, reported by South Korean media, was confirmed by South Korea's Defense Ministry. Pyongyang says it is entitled to launch a satellite into space but critics say the rocket development is...

    Official figures to be published on Thursday will confirm that foreign immigration under Labour added more than three million to our population. At the same time nearly one million British citizens voted with their feet, some saying that they were leaving because England was no longer a country that they recognised. How could all this have happened in the teeth of public opposition? Even the Labour government’s own survey last February showed that 77 per cent of the public wanted immigration reduced, including 54 per cent of the ethnic communities, while 50 per cent of the public wanted it reduced

    NAIROBI, April 9 — For centuries, Somalis used poetry and songs to pass protest messages to powerful rulers they were too afraid to confront directly. Now, some young Somalis are using rap to speak out against Islamists who they say are using religion to wage war in their country. The 11-member Waayaha Cusub band, currently in exile in neighbouring Kenya, wants its rap lyrics to encourage fellow Somalis to stand up to Islamist rebels known as al Shabaab. They have handed out at least 7,000 free copies of their newly-released album titled “No To Al Shabaab” to residents in Nairobi’s...

    WASHINGTON -- Peter De Vries, America's wittiest novelist, died 17 years ago but his discernment of this country's cultural foibles still amazes. In a 1983 novel, he spotted the tendency of America's therapeutic culture to medicalize character flaws: "Once terms like identity doubts and midlife crisis become current," De Vries wrote, "the reported cases of them increase by leaps and bounds." And: "Rapid-fire means of communication have brought psychic dilapidation within the reach of the most provincial backwaters, so that large metropolitan centers and educated circles need no longer consider it their exclusive property, nor preen themselves on their special...

    Thumbs up! Go see it. It is an excellent escape from all the BHO hoopla 24/7 on cable news. In the wake of Valkyrie, there is a new WWII called Defiance which I highly recommend. As with Valkyrie, this movie covers a subject which has, heretofore, received little attention from Hollyweird filmmakers. Defiance takes place on the Eastern Front in WWII and is the story of the Bielski brothers, two Jewish men who organized a partisan unit operating behind German lines in the thick primeval forests of Belorussia, now called Belarus. First a little background. The Eastern Front during WWII...

    (CNN) -- The question of Jewish resistance to the Nazis -- or the lack of it -- has loomed large ever since the true extent of the horrors of the Holocaust became impossible to ignore. Liev Schreiber, left, and Daniel Craig play Jewish resistance fighters in the World War II drama "Defiance." As early as 1940 and 1942, Charlie Chaplin and Ernst Lubitsch fashioned satiric fantasies in which Adolf Hitler was comically humiliated by Jews (a barber in Chaplin's "The Great Dictator" and a hammy actor in Lubitsch's "To Be or Not to Be"). More recently, Steven Spielberg and Roman...

More than the Tibet Autonomous Region itself, where the upsurge of anti-Chinese protests and riots erupted last month, the historically Tibetan parts of neighbouring provinces have defied efforts to smother unrest with troop convoys, roadblocks and patrols, and warnings of harsh punishment to lawbreakers. In Zhuoni, a county in the northwest province of Gansu, protesters in...

My hometown was not unlike many small towns across the South, and the similarities between Morris' Yazoo City are many. Other than the technological differences between the 1940's and the 1960's, only the backdrop of the American Civil Rights Struggle, and the War in Viet Nam provide the more significant differences between the two periods.

    Which kind of intelligence failure is better — the kind that badly understates a threat, such as the one in London, or the kind that overstates a threat, such as the insistent warnings before the invasion of Iraq that Saddam Hussein was armed with weapons of mass destruction? Even in the best intelligence services, failures are sometimes inevitable. Foresight will never be as sharp as hindsight. Only after the fact — after the Underground blows up, after 9/11, after the stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons are nowhere to be found — is it clear what the picture looks like...

    UPDATED: Demo senators strike note of defiance in maintaining holdout By W. Gardner Selby Express-News Staff Writer Web Posted : 08/04/2003 3:15 PM ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Eleven Democratic senators entered their second week away from Texas in a local hotel today by singing a song crediting them with outsmarting U.S. Rep.

Rick Perry to call repeated special sessions for the purpose of imposing more Republican-leaning congressional districts. Several senators sang along with visiting guitarist Steve Brooks, who wore a “Killer D’s” T-shirt referring...

    Korean defiance piles pressure on Bush By Rupert Cornwell in Washington 09 February 2003 The Bush administration this weekend was mounting an intense diplomatic drive to prevent the confrontation over North Korea's nuclear weapon ambitions spinning out of control, even as it makes the final preparations for a war with Iraq. The effort, which could see the appointment of a high-level US envoy to take charge of the crisis, reflects the difficulties North Korea's brazen defiance of Washington pose for the President. Not only are some Republicans as well as Democrats questioning the very different treatment of Iraq and North...

    11/13/2002 10:00:58 AM PST · by 45Auto · 6 replies · 310+ views
    Saskatchewan's justice minister says he has major concerns about the federal government's plan to control the use of guns. Bill C-68 requires all firearms to be registered by this coming January 1st. Chris Axworthy says he's concerned law abiding citizens could become criminals through no fault of their own. He says there are still ``large numbers'' of gun owners in Saskatchewan who have not registered their weapons. Axworthy says he doesn't think the federal government's computer system will be able to handle all the last minute registration requests. He says that means even though people may have registered their guns,...

    9/11? We are going flying. The US Flag Balloon will be flying on September 11th 2002. We will be flying from Kerr Park in Downingtown, Pa in the early evening weather permitting. I invite all Chester County, Pa FReepers to come out and join us. Any other FReepers are also welcome to join in. We had wanted to be at one of the sites that the terrorists hit, but I think that what we have decided to do is probably for the best. We have had one year to mourn the dead. We are flying the US Flag Balloon on...
