    A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula as a show of force, a U.S. official told Reuters on Saturday, as concerns grow about North Korea’s advancing weapons program. Earlier this month North Korea tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile which only traveled a fraction of its range. The strike group, called Carl Vinson, includes an aircraft carrier and will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official, who was not authorized to speak to the media and requested anonymity. “We feel the increased presence is necessary,”...

    Electoral College voters based in Colorado have formed a political non-profit to block Donald Trump from the presidency. According to The Denver Post, Michael Baca, a Democratic elector, filed paperwork Tuesday with the Colorado Secretary of State's Office to create the "Hamilton Electors," a group able to fundraise unlimited donations from individuals, corporations and labor unions for political reasons. The goal of the group is to convince Republican and Democratic Electoral College voters to unify behind a Republican alternative for President or force an Electoral College deadlock. “I was opposed, actually, to raising money because I would prefer to just...

    Neurosurgeon Ben Carson should withdraw from the presidential race for his comments that a Muslim shouldn't be president a prominent Muslim-American group said Sunday. "I think his remarks should be repudiated by everyone on the political spectrum and that he should withdraw," Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation's largest Islamic advocacy group, told the Washington Examiner on Sunday. Carson, who is third in the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings, spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday and said that he wouldn't "advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation."

    Mathematicians Chase Moonshine’s Shadow Researchers are on the trail of a mysterious connection between number theory, algebra and string theory. In 1978, the mathematician John McKay noticed what seemed like an odd coincidence. He had been studying the different ways of representing the structure of a mysterious entity called the monster group, a gargantuan algebraic object that, mathematicians believed, captured a new kind of symmetry. Mathematicians weren’t sure that the monster group actually existed, but they knew that if it did exist, it acted in special ways in particular dimensions, the first two of which were 1 and 196,883.McKay, of...

    We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual...

    SIERRA VISTA — It was standing room only at Regis hair salon Wednesday evening, with a line that stretched out the door. More than 20 Troop 444 Boy Scouts, along with scout masters, friends and family members, crowded the salon located in the Mall at Sierra Vista for a group head shaving. They were doing it in a show of support for Assistant Scoutmaster Janet Thompson who is undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. And they were doing it for cancer awareness. All smiles, 12-year-old Dakota Pierce was one of the first in the group to climb onto the stylist’s chair...

    CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Shocking video of a young man who was beaten and robbed in broad daylight has gone viral, and it's all part of a disturbing trend. A handicapped man was beaten and robbed on the street. The incident was recorded, then sent around on Facebook like some entertainment or trophy. First a fight, which was more of an attack. Police say a young guy was robbed, then beaten. The fight was not one-on-one and was uneven in another way; a source close to the case says the victim was a young adult with a developmental disability.

    I gave up on NC Spin several months back. For those of you not familiar with this program, it is WRAL commisar Jim Goodmon’s attempted knockoff of the McLaughlin Group. Except Jim’s version involves Democrat hacks Tom Campbell and Chris Fitzsimon doing their best Baghdad Bob impression — regurgitating state-run media propaganda while John Hood and some other token Republican / conservative sit quietly off to the side. Somebody urged me to watch this weekend’s installation of the show. Apparently, Chris “The Mad Blinker” had a pretty hysterical meltdown toward the end of the show. (The fun starts at about...

    Western Springs and La Grange members of an anti-gun violence group are asking area businesses to post signs depicting No Guns Allowed. A new state law allows residents to carry concealed weapons, pending approval of permit applications through the Illinois State Police. The first such permits are expected to be issued beginning March 1. “I prefer to shop in places where I feel safe,” said Katherine Mudd, a Western Springs member of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. She has children, ages 7 and 9, and has been handing out postcards to area businesses.

    **SNIP** Eight of the eleven participants in the Ohio group- independents or independent leaners- voted for President Obama in 2012, but not one of them described themselves as “proud” or “satisfied” with him. Instead, they said that they were ‘disappointed’ with him, and used words like “inexperienced,” “powerless,” “cautious,” “timid,” and “overwhelmed” to describe him. One participant told Hart: “I was really excited going into his first term. His first term was certainly a disappointment.” one focus group participant shared.”

    (CNSNews.com) – The leader of the Nigerian jihadist group Boko Haram – which the State Department so far has refused to designate as a foreign terrorist organization – boasted Monday that it was now strong enough to “comfortably confront” the United States. Boko Haram is not only fighting the cause of Islam in Nigeria, Abubakar Shekau said in a video message, but also against the leaders of the U.S., France and all other countries that do not rule according to the teachings of the Qur’an, the Lagos Guardian daily reported
