    On Tuesday, Turkey bombed the headquarters of Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, killing 20 of our soldiers. Immediately after the strike, the leaders of our forces — known as the People’s Protection Groups, or YPG — rushed from their operations center near Raqqa, where they’ve been working with the U.S. military to push the Islamic State out of its Syrian stronghold, to view the site of the attack. The American colonel and other officers who accompanied the YPG leaders were met by tens of thousands of protesters, including the mothers of soldiers who have died fighting the Islamic State. They...

    Governor Mike Pence will no longer be attending a Saturday campaign event in Wisconsin with House Speaker Paul Ryan, according to Politico. Donald Trump was scheduled to attend the event but was disinvited by Ryan after a leaked audio tape from 2005 sparked controversy. As of Friday, Pence had still planned to attend. A top Pence advisor says Pence was not disinvited but has refused to attend.

    Rex Harrison, my little guy, has passed at the age of 14. An believable friendly little guy, for a Cocker Spaniel, he loved to give kisses, love and bring joy on even the worst day. He was a funny dog who would, like a monkey, attempt to get the nits out of my hair. Never had a dog do that. He was always patient, observant and wanted to whatever I wanted to do. We called him Rex Harrison due to his black coat, with a streak of white in his chest and white paws...Like a tuxedo. He was always quite...

    On the Demise of the True Love of Friends in an Age of Lost Innocence Msgr. Charles Pope • January 3, 2016 • One of the casualties of the sexual revolution has been the love that is friendship.The Greek language has several different words for love. The love between friends is phileo, and is different from eros (physical, sensual love), storge (family love), and agape (selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love of God or another). Modern English sadly lacks such distinctions. However, in the past we were pretty well able navigate the different types of love and not read inaccurate motivations into...
  • The Only Thing Some Democrats Like About The Benghazi Select Committee: Trey Gowdy

    02/04/2015 6:37:17 PM PST · by ObamahatesPACoal · 21 replies ^ | January 28, 2015
    Democrats have harshly criticized the Benghazi select committee, calling it a political sideshow and questioning Republican motives behind the effort. But what some key Democrats aren’t questioning is the man who will lead the committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy. While Gowdy is decidedly partisan and one of the most vocal critics of the Obama administration regarding its response to Benghazi, he has built up an enormous amount of goodwill among some of his Democratic colleagues, particularly those he’s worked with on the Judiciary and Oversight committees. On the record and in private, Democrats praise Gowdy as fair and forthright. “I would...

    A dear friend of ours has been hospitalized and had emergency surgery this morning. The doctors removed the muscle of his right forearm and most of the tissue around his left hip. They say that he will not be able to use the fingers of his right hand and that he will not walk again. They say the disease will remain in his system for up to six weeks, so his ordeal is far from over. Please pray for him. He is a very, very good and kind man. Our friend is a master electrician, and he is a young...

    LAKE STEVENS — Police said two masked, armed men allegedly entered a garage of a home in the Lake Stevens area, confronted the homeowner and his friend there and allegedly attempted to rob them. But the friend was able to pull a gun out of his car and opened fire, hitting one of the suspects and prompting the other one to flee, police said. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting took place at a home in the 7000 block of 126th Drive NE. “It is believed that two men, the homeowner and a male acquaintance, were in the...
  • Social Media Hasn’t Enabled Us To ‘Scale’ Friend Capacity, Oxford Study Suggests

    The illusion social media presents of streamlining friendships may have something to it — allowing us to pare down on rote announcements, invites or shares — but it hasn’t increased our capacity to connect meaningfully on a larger scale, new research out of Oxford indicates. Social media has often been analyzed in regards to its potential to increase our connectivity in terms of binary units of “closeness.” That is to say, before social media, we physically lacked the capability to have hundreds of friends. So now that there is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Vine, can we do more friend stuff?...

    ST. PETERSBURG,Fla.—Mitt Romney, his friends often say, is a private man in a public world. But with just one month left until the election, he has calculated that to win the presidency he must do what for years he has been loath to: share intimate stories about his life.So it was that as the sun set on his rally here Friday night,...Romney talked about David for the first time himself.“It was clear he was not going to make it,”Romney said. “I went into his room one night when he was in bed,and he asked me a very difficult question.

    When Carbonite Inc. stock took a quick plunge this week, there was an obvious consensus about what caused the move: The company pulled advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s talk-radio program after the controversial host made inflammatory remarks about a Georgetown University law student. Yes, the market could have feared that Limbaugh’s fans would cancel Carbonite’s service, an online back-up solution for consumers and businesses, or mount their own boycott. Or maybe investors assumed Carbonite (US:CARB) will suffer because it will no longer have access to Limbaugh’s audience. Or it could be that investors saw in the release of the company’s Form...
  • Help in finding an old friend

    11/25/2011 9:10:05 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 19 replies
    Would need some help in finding a friend of my dad that he would like to re-unite with. He hasn't seen this buddy in over 40 years. All we know is that he was in the navy and is old enough to receive social security. Can't find him in Facebook. Would Social Security admin assist in finding someone? Would Veterans Affairs? If they could help what offices should be contacted? Any help from anyone who has ever tried to find someone they want to re-connect with would be really appreciated. Many thanks.
  • Hot Air exclusive: Perry raises $17.1 million in Q3

    Hot Air ^ | October 5, 2011 | Ed Morrissey
    A source on the Rick Perry campaign tells Hot Air that the Texas governor conducted some Texas-size fundraising in the third quarter. Coming in just a little over halfway through, Perry raised $17.1 million. That number would put Perry somewhere between $4-6 million ahead of Mitt Romney’s rumored total for Q3, according to this report last week from the Boston Globe. It’s also likely to far outpace Herman Cain’s fundraising or that of the other Republicans currently in the race. The pace is even more impressive. Perry had 49 days in which to raise funds, rather than the full 92...

    [caption id="attachment_7584" align="alignright" width="123" caption="Hugh DeLacy, 1940s"][/caption] From at least the mid 1970s, until 1986, President Barack ; Obama's nomination for Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, had a close personal friendship with; Hugh DeLacy, a Santa Cruz, California activist, and a life long Marxist-Leninist. Then Congressman Panetta and DeLacy exchanged letters over many years - almost all of which dealt with defense and foreign policy issues. Many involved requests by DeLacy for information, policy papers, etc, which Panetta went out of his way to supply. What Panetta hopefully did not know was, that in the year before this correspondence began,...

    The Federal Reserve system has lots of ways to communicate with the public, but that wasn’t always the case. The Fed has Web sites for the board in Washington and all the regional banks with access to speeches by officials, research and even blogs, there’s TV coverage of the chairman’s testimony and now press conference, there’s a plethora of other sites (including this one, of course) that cover the central bank closely, not to mention the banks’ paper publications and local outreach efforts. But there weren’t always so many options available. The New York Fed’s Liberty Street Economics blog posts...
