    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the beheading "an act of cold-blooded murder." Yes, and the sky is blue. But what is he going to do about it? Nothing.

Well, ISIS is at war with you, damn fool. Obama's lapdog, PM Trudeau, would not comment on the fate of the other hostages -- fellow Canadian Robert Hall, Hall's Filipino girlfriend, Marites Flor, and a Norwegian, Kjartan Sekkingstad.

    An appeals court says the U.S. government cannot be held responsible for the 1991 abduction of Jaycee Dugard, who was held by a federal parolee for 18 years. Dugard had sued, alleging that federal officials should have revoked the man’s parole prior to her kidnapping. Phillip Garrido had been convicted of a previous rape and abduction. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Tuesday that Dugard wasn’t Garrido’s victim at the time he was placed under federal supervision

    Tucson police this week rescued a 16-year-old boy they say had been beaten, blindfolded and bound after being kidnapped for ransom because his captors believed he came from a wealthy family. The boy’s family called police Tuesday evening reporting that their son was taken and that his suspected kidnappers were attempting to extort money from them. “For whatever reason the suspects believed that the family, that the father, had a good deal of money,” Tucson police spokesman Sergeant Pete Dugan said. Detectives worked overnight to track the boy down to a house in the city’s south side. They were conducting...

    The IDF on Sunday conferred the status of state land on 4,000 dunams in the Gush Etzion region of the West Bank, thereby ending the civil administration’s investigation into the possibility that parcels were private Palestinian property. The new designation for an area known as Gevaot, opens the door for settlers to advance plans to build a fifth city in the West Bank on those dunams. There is a 45(day)-period for objections to be raised. The land had previously been listed as survey land, a designation that prevented settlers and the army from moving building plans through the planning system....

    CONWAY — Former Kennett High classmates of Nathaniel Kibby were not surprised when they learned Monday that he was arrested as a suspect in the alleged kidnapping of Abigail Hernandez, a case that has drawn national attention. They actually remembered Kibby starting a gang while a student at KHS, and some believe he may have been linked to a number of called-in bomb scares during the 1998 school year. One of Kibby's former classmates, Randy Waldron, Class of 1999 at Kennett High, said Kibby tormented him for 20 years. "I don't know Abby Hernandez but I hope and pray this...
