    Donald Malarkey, a World War II paratrooper who was awarded the Bronze Star after parachuting behind enemy lines at Normandy to destroy German artillery on D-Day, has died. He was 96. Malarkey was one of several members of "Easy Company" to be widely portrayed in the HBO miniseries, "Band of Brothers." He died Sept. 30 in Salem, Oregon of age-related causes, his son-in-law John Hill said Sunday. Malarkey fought fight across France, the Netherlands and Belgium and with Easy Company fought off Nazi advances while surrounded at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944.
  • Forget the debate: Two simple reasons a Republican will likely win in 2016

    Elections are not mysterious events subject to the whimsy of unpredictable candidates and voters. They’re actually highly predictable, with a set of variables that influence outcomes in familiar ways. Because of that, we can say, with reasonable confidence, that a Republican will be moving into the White House in 2017.

    LifeWay Christian Stores has come under fire for selling a book based on a boy who claimed he visited heaven and who is now saying that the story is false. The book, titled The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, has been available since last year and tells the story of 6-year-old Alex Malarkey who suffered a horrific car accident in 2004. The crash paralyzed Alex and it was unlikely he'd survive after slipping into a coma. He awoke two months later and claimed that angels took him through the gates of heaven to meet Jesus. Malarkey addressed the validity...

    Tyndale House, a major Christian publisher, has announced that it will stop selling “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven,” by Alex Malarkey and his father, Kevin Malarkey. The best-selling book, first published in 2010, purports to describe what Alex experienced while he lay in a coma after a car accident when he was 6 years old. The coma lasted two months, and his injuries left him paralyzed, but the subsequent spiritual memoir – with its assuring description of “miracles, angels, and life beyond This World” – became part of a popular genre of “heavenly tourism.” Earlier this week, Alex...

    Nearly five years after it hit bestseller lists, a book that purported to be a six-year-old boy's story of visiting angels and heaven after suffering a bad car crash is being pulled from shelves. The young man at the center of The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven, Alex Malarkey, said this week that the story was all made up. "I did not die. I did not go to Heaven," Alex Malarkey wrote. He continued, "I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never...

    DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — At odds early and often, Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan squabbled over the economy, taxes, Medicare and more Thursday night in a contentious, interruption-filled debate. "That is a bunch of malarkey," the vice president retorted after a particularly tough Ryan attack on the administration's foreign policy. "I know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but I think people would be better served if we don't interrupt each other," Ryan said later to his rival, referring to Democratic pressure on Biden to make up for President Barack Obama's listless performance...

    I understand Barack Obama. It is not always easy, but I do. I can even relate to him. Of course, we weren't supposed to need to. He was supposed to be above that. He was never supposed to be an everyman, and never pretended to be. He transcended beer tests, barbecue tests, and the rest — the tests of whether he was "likable" enough as a politician. It didn't matter whether I wanted to have a beer with him or not, and nobody asked. He was Barack Obama. What he represented was much larger than any individual, even himself. It...

    Here is video of President Obama speaking this afternoon to push his Health Care Reform Bill that would bring socialized medicine to America. Obama said that those who are "betting against Health Care" are "mistaken." Obama claims that two-thirds of the cost of Government Health Care will come from savings in the government not having to make payments to insurance companies. The other one-third he said would have to be found by some solution arrived at by Congress (that would be TAXES!). Obama was trying to prop up Democrats who are wavering as the weekend approaches. He wants both the...

  • Barbara Bova: If Hillary wins get ready for some interesting changes

    The bets are in. Pundits say that Hillary Clinton will be our next president. I’m thinking as a Republican and a woman that having Hillary for president might be just what the doctor ordered. She might be able to accomplish changes that no man in office could ever do. With a female moderate in office, abortion will no longer be on the front burner. The expression, “little woman” will be erased from the minds of not just men, but women. If Hillary wins, it will bring a new status to women. But most of all, women will begin to raise...

    The US has also today come in for unprecedented criticism from the Iraqi Prime Minister. He has told a UK newspaper that he wishes that Baghdad could receive strong messages of support from the US. Nuri al-Maliki said Iraq's need for US troops could fall in three to six months if Washington equipped Iraqi security forces with sufficient weapons. He is also reported to have told an Italian paper that President Bush has never been in a weaker position than he is today. He is quoted as saying that it is the administration in Washington facing demise, not the Iraqi...

    WASHINGTON — The investigation into the case of a U.S. servicewoman who reappeared as mysteriously as she vanished will continue, a senior defense official said Tuesday, adding that something about her story didn't add up. Air Force Maj. Jill Metzger, 33, vanished from a shopping mall in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, on Sept. 5. She resurfaced three days later when she knocked on the door of a house in Kant, about 22 outside Bishkek, and claimed she had been kidnapped. Kyrgyz police said Monday that Metzger, who was serving a tour at the U.S. military base in Manas, gave confused accounts about...

    IT'S OFFICIAL: 2005 WILL BE the newspaper industry's worst year since the last ad industry recession. And things aren't looking much better for next year either, according to a top Wall Street firm's report on newspaper publishing. "Sadly, 2005 is shaping up as the industry's worst year from a revenue growth perspective since the recession impacted 2001-2002 period," says the report from Goldman Sachs, adding a warning that meaningful growth in 2006 is "very unlikely."

    Who will be the next pope? Whoever he is, the future leader of the world's more than 1 billion Roman Catholics is likely to stay the course on controversial issues like abortion, contraception and the ordination of women as priests. All but three of the 117 voting cardinals, who will gather in secret at the Sistine Chapel on April 18 to choose a successor to John Paul II, were appointed by the late pope, who strictly adhered to conservative church doctrine during his 26-year reign. But in the United States, where many Catholics tend to hold more liberal views on...
