    The family’s mixed races have fueled suspicion and anger about the crash, reflected in hundreds of comments left on Facebook postings mourning the family. Many of the comments questioned the motives of white women who adopted black children. Meanwhile, those who knew the Harts described them as inspiring and devoted parents who had been unfairly subjected to criticism and assumptions about their motives for adopting the children. Friends also said that the couple tried to keep their children insulated from death threats and hateful emails prompted by the viral picture of Devonte.

    European border officials are being pulled out of Greek islands over concerns for their safety, following a spate of riots and violence by migrants. Since March, migrants arriving on the Greek islands have been prevented from moving on to the mainland as the European Union (EU) hopes to return at least some of them to Turkey. But due to growing frustrated at the delay, the migrants have taken to burning down their accommodation and rioting, the Daily Mail has reported. As a result, Belgium has taken the decision to withdraw its staff from the islands, fearing for their safety. Belgium’s...

    Three Syrian refugee families flew to the Vatican with Pope Francis on Saturday following the pontiff's brief but provocative visit to a Greek island at the center of the European migrant crisis.

    With pictures of sad faces and the images of a young boy's body washing up on shore, we are told the terror of the plight of Muslim immigrants seeking to escape ISIS. If we listen to these narratives, we would think that these people simply want a chance at a better life. They are so desperate to escape the violence and fascism of ISIS that they will chance even their lives and the lives of their families to try and get to Europe. But this narrative is being strained as violence erupts on the Greek Island of Lesbos. Breitbart reports:...

    President Obama's nomination of Elena Kagan to serve as the next Supreme Court Justice is no surprise to many. By most accounts, she is likely to be an effective advocate on the Court. For those in favor of the Court's steady erosion of the constraints on government power enshrined in our written Constitution, her nomination should be welcome. For those opposed, her nomination provides a call to arms to defend the principles of limited government. While she would be only one of nine Justices, Kagan's capacity to influence the direction of the Court may be significant. As many have observed...
