    Transcript of Mark Levin, 6/10/2014 You know what I've heard? On good authority, that Mitt Romney and Orrin Hatch want one of Mitt Romney's sons to go after Mike Lee in the Republican fight -- should there be one -- because they want to get rid of Mike Lee. Who are the purists, exactly? Who are the "Big Tent" guys, exactly? Now let me tell you what I'm gonna do if these fools pull that. Listen to me, Orrin, I'm talkin' to you. I'm going to go into your state and expose you. For your lies on this show. I'm...
  • Teen Sex Sleepovers: The Latest Fad in Immoral Sex Education

    Just when I think I’ve heard it all, I come across something that makes me pause in disgust. This week, I read an article from the Huffington Post titled, “How Do You Feel about Sex and Teenage Sleepovers?” There’s no doubt how I feel, but let’s first take a look at what the author said. In the first paragraph she asks, “Why not teach children how to have sex well, the way you teach them how to do other things?” She elaborates, describing parents inviting the teenager’s partner over, having a nice dinner and then the couple “toddles” off to...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 6/12/11 | Tzvi ben Gedalyahu
    Hizbullah leader Nasrallah, who stays in hiding so Israel won’t target him, made a rare public appearance Tuesday and asked to be martyred. He showed up in public for the first in more than three years, in the southern suburbs of Beirut Tuesday at a mourning ceremony on Ashura, when Shiite Muslims mark the anniversary of the death of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson Imam Hussein. He remained in a public for only a few minutes but long enough to preach for death in the name of Jihad. “It is the dream of every single one of us to join the...

    A YOUNG Toowoomba man yesterday tied the knot with his best friend – a five-year-old labrador. In perhaps a first for the Garden City, Laurel Bank Park hosted the wedding of Joseph Guiso and Honey, a labrador he adopted five years ago. Thirty of the couple’s closest friends and family were in attendance for the emotional ceremony, held at dusk. "You’re my best friend and you make every part of my day better," Mr Guiso’s vows read. The couple decided on the location – and to tie the knot - after stumbling upon a wedding in Laurel Bank Park during...

    Last summer, several students at the all-boys Landon School in Bethesda hatched what sources later described as a twisted idea for a fantasy league: They would draft girls onto teams and then tally points based not on sports scores but on sexual conquests the boys would make at a series of parties. The boys were caught before the first party took place, according to several sources. Asked about the incident, a school official said Wednesday that three rising freshmen received in-school suspensions at the beginning of the school year.

A forecast of heavy snow added to the list of complications. **SNIP** Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is expected to release a package of changes to the bill that could run to hundreds of pages. Since those changes were negotiated behind closed doors, McCain said it's reasonable to demand that the package be read aloud...

It's a tale that amazes even him. "I don't know how I had the stamina," says Skretteberg, who at 40 is a wiry 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds. "If I tried to attempt that just any day of the week, I would probably just quit, it's so much work. But in those circumstances, your adrenaline kicks in."

Gerard Baker Nestled deep in George Bush’s latest $190 billion request to Congress for emergency funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is a tantalising little item that has received scant attention. The US Department of Defence has asked for an additional $88 million to modify B2 stealth bombers so that they can carry a 30,000lb bomb called the massive ordnance penetrator (or MOP, in the disarming acronymic vernacular of the military). The MOP is an advanced form of a “bunker buster”, an air-delivered weapon...

    WASHINGTON — Lynda Marie Kirby sexually abused her young son in ways more horrible than anyone could imagine, and she'll pay a steep price for her crimes. Kirby is serving a 125-year sentence, and she will remain in prison for half that time — 62 1/2 years — before she becomes eligible for parole. But there are many in Texas who think Kirby shouldn't spend even another day behind bars. They believe crimes of her nature deserve a greater punishment than imprisonment, and now the state is on its way toward approving the death penalty for child rapists. Texas is...

On Monday, Omar Shahin and five other imams had gone to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to fly home to Phoenix after attending a conference in Minneapolis of the North American Imams Federation. Shahin is president of the group. But after passengers raised concerns about the imams — three of whom said their normal evening prayers in the airport terminal before boarding the Phoenix-bound plane...

    Four Guantanamo prisoners tried to commit suicide on Thursday and several others attacked guards who rushed in to halt one of the attempts, a camp spokesman said. Three took overdoses of prescription medicine they had apparently been hoarding, and the fourth tried to hang himself, said Cmdr. Robert Durand, a detention camp spokesman. None of the suicide attempts succeeded, he said. "At this point, I have no idea of motive, no idea of any co-ordination and no idea of any intended message," Durand said. The attempted hanging took place in a medium-security camp where prisoners live in groups of up...

    SAN TOME, VENEZUELA - Touring a branch office in central Venezuela, an executive from the state-run oil company worked himself into a lather. Why? Because there weren't enough portraits of President Hugo Chavez hanging in the building. "I want a nice, big photo of the president in the main entrance," he barked at a press officer. "And that's an order." From the hallways of the government energy company to the boardrooms of U.S petroleum firms, Chavez is firmly placing his stamp on the oil industry in Venezuela, the fifth-largest supplier of crude to the U.S. And many of the country's...

    Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Saturday night that the United States must be prepared to take military action against Iran if nonviolent means don't deter the country from building nuclear weapons. Iran has said it wants to enrich uranium only to make nuclear fuel for generating electricity. But concerns that it might misuse the technology led the International Atomic Energy Agency on Saturday to report Iran to the U.N. Security Council. The United States has long advocated Security Council action against Iran, including possible political and economic sanctions, which have not yet occurred. Asked whether Congress had the political...

    TONY BLAIR served warning last night that the West might have to take military action against Iran after worldwide condemnation of its President’s call for Israel to be “wiped off the map”. Ending a one-day European Union summit, the Prime Minister called the explosive declaration by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday a disgrace. Promising discussions with Washington and other allies over how to react, Mr Blair said that he had often been urged not to take action against Iran. But, he continued: “If they carry on like this the question people will be asking us is — when are you going...

    SACRAMENTO - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Wednesday that he will veto a bill seeking to allow gay marriages in California. Schwarzenegger said the legislation, given final approval Tuesday by lawmakers, would conflict with the intent of voters when they approved Proposition 22. That measure was put on the ballot in 2000 to prevent California from recognizing same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. "We cannot have a system where the people vote and the Legislature derails that vote," the governor's press secretary, Margita Thompson, said in a statement. "Out of respect for the will of the people, the governor will veto (the bill)."...

Or should he be charged with war crimes? It's an interesting question. On the face of it, Bush seems a perfect candidate for prosecution under Canada's Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes Act. This act was passed in 2000 to bring Canada's ineffectual laws in line with the rules of the new International Criminal Court. While never tested, it lays out sweeping categories under which a foreign leader like Bush...

    JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel has not adopted a formal decision to kill Yasser Arafat, Israel's foreign minister said Monday, in an apparent attempt to soften remarks by the vice premier who said that assassination was an option. In the West Bank, meanwhile, Palestinian Prime Minister-designate Ahmed Qureia asked Arafat's ruling Fatah movement to choose candidates for up to 16 of 24 Cabinet posts - a decision that appears to grant Arafat significant control over the composition of the new Cabinet. One of the legislators said the Fatah list would be chosen in consultations with Arafat. Also Monday, Israel's ambassador to...
