  • Dave Grossman: First-Person Shooter Videogames Should be Banned

    The first juvenile mass-murder happened for the FIRST TIME in recorded human history in the late 1970s, in California. In 500 years of gun-powder combat, not once had a juvenile committed multiple homicide. We had a couple in the 1980s, and now it's out of control. So what happened? It's Pavlog Dog, said Lt. Col. Lt. Col. Grossman: our youth is being conditioned from childhood by videogames to be "First-Person Shooters, (FPS) and to associate killing, human death and suffering with reward and pleasure. Videogames are not "games"; they are mass-murder simulators, Grossman says. Our kids are being wired...

    (NaturalNews) In the midst of all the anti-gun hysteria following the senseless murder of 26 people - 20 of them first graders - at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., one story that is repeatedly overlooked is how often a firearm has been used to save lives and stop senseless murders. We here at Natural News believe the mainstream media, which so often overlooks these kinds of stories because they don't fit into the statist government worldview held by the majority of news editors, has done a disservice to the public by ignoring these acts of selflessness and heroism....

    Fifty years ago today, the life work of Alger Hiss came to fruition. Hiss, a US State Department official, served the United Nations as its acting Secretary General during its founding conference in the spring of 1945. On October 24, 1945 the United Nations Charter became effective as a majority of the countries that had signed it ratified their signatures. Several years later, Hiss went to a federal penitentiary for committing perjury when testifying that he was not a Soviet agent. His personal career was over, but his most important work, the United Nations, lived on. Globalists everywhere are today...

    We will know. This is how the mur derous slaughter in Tucson differs from the Virginia Tech and Columbine massacres. The killers in those cases were dead by the time they ended, and their suicides ensured we would never be able to get to the bottom of them -- what combination of their own genes, upbringing and cultural influences led these monsters to such bottomless evil. But Jared Loughner isn't dead. His apprehension means we will eventually have a definitive explanation for this act -- that it won't be left to ideologically interested parties to stitch together a politically convenient...

    A few dozen Christian, Hindu, Jewish, and non-sectarian organizations of mixed races held a protest against Jihad in Nigeria, in front of Nigeria’s UN Consulate in Manhattan, Wednesday evening. This was diversity at its most constructive and most American, including naturalized citizens who gratefully embraced their U.S. citizenship. They do not want what they fled to pursue them here. Speakers expressed much religious fervor but also mutual tolerance. They described jihadist butchery of Christians in Nigeria in gruesome detail, with more righteous indignation and disgust than I’ve seen before. The speakers were introduced by the event’s organizer, Beth Gilinsky of...
  • The Jewish Nakba: Expulsions, Massacres and Forced Conversions

    Every year on the 15th of May, the Palestinians - and many others around the world along with them - "celebrate" Nakba Day. For them, this is the day that marks the great catastrophe that befell them as result of the establishment of the State of Israel. Hundreds of thousands of Arabs became refugees. Some fled, some were deported. The Nakba grew to such enormous proportions that it is preventing a solution to the dispute. We must remember that in the 1940s, population exchanges and deportations for the purpose of creating national states were the accepted norm. Tens of millions...

    LDS Church leaders have agreed to seek national landmark status for the church-owned Mountain Meadows Massacre site in southern Utah where Mormons attacked a California-bound wagon train on Sept. 11, 1857. A national landmark designation would ensure that the 120 Arkansas emigrants of the Fancher/Baker wagon train company who were killed by Mormon militia and some Paiute Indians "will always be remembered as part of our nation's history," said Marlin K. Jensen, an LDS general authority and official historian for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Jensen met Friday in Arkansas with about 20 representatives of the Mountain...

    BLITAR, Indonesia - Hiding out in the dense, humid jungle, Markus Talam watched Indonesian soldiers herd manacled prisoners from trucks, line them up and mow them down with round after round of automatic weapons fire. It was 1968, and the killings were part of a final offensive by forces under Gen. Suharto to wipe out the communist party and secure his position as leader of Indonesia, now the world's most populous Muslim nation. "They gunned them down and dumped their bodies in a mass grave dug by other prisoners. I remember the sound of the guns clearly: tat-tat, tat-tat, tat-tat...

    With Fox News reporter Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaf Wiig still being held hostage by Palestinian terrorists, the Western media has received a potent reminder that broadcasting certain truths from inside Arab territory can result in devastating consequences. While it is not clear the kidnappers’ motivation—they have yet to state any demands—this is just the latest in a string of abductions, which is in and of itself only part of the arsenal of heavy-handed media intimidation present in the region. Thuggery helps explain the obscenely low volume of negative press coverage of the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, Hamas, Hezbollah, and others....

My aunt Rose, a teenager at that time, survived the trip to begin her life in exile on the Lebanese coast.

    SADDAM Hussein's government may have executed 61,000 Baghdad residents, a number significantly higher than previously believed, according to a survey obtained today by The Associated Press. The bloodiest massacres of Saddam's 23-year presidency occurred in Iraq's Kurdish north and Shi'ite Muslim south, but the Gallup Baghdad Survey data indicates the brutality extended strongly into the capital as well. The survey, which the polling firm planned to release tomorrow, asked 1178 Baghdad residents in August and September whether a member of their household had been executed by Saddam's regime. According to Gallup, 6.6 per cent said yes. The polling firm took...

A statement from the UN mission in Congo said the victims had been hacked to death with axes, machetes, clubs and knives. Two survivors of the attack, which took place in the village of Ndunda, have been hospitalised and four more people are missing, the statement said. Ndunda lies 20 miles north of Uvira, the main town in Congo's troubled South Kivu province, on the border with Burundi. The United...

They spent $20,000 to buy a new artificial leg for the Sudanese refugee to replace the one he wore out in four months of filming in the jungles of Hawaii. ‘‘They did something I will never forget,’’ Anyak said. Anyak, who lives in an east Atlanta suburb, had no acting experience, but the movie needed someone to play the role of an African war amputee. Anyak lost his left leg during the...
