    Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund has made an iconic purchase in America — a stake in the company that owns New York’s Empire State Building. The $622-million purchase by the Qatar Investment Authority comes as the Doha fund increases its investments in the US as the small country on the Arabian Peninsula tries to cope with low global oil and gas prices.

    Jehoram King of Judah 2 Chronicles 2:4 When Jehoram established himself firmly over his father’s kingdom, he put all his brothers to the sword along with some of the officials of Israel. 5 Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years. 6 He followed the ways of the kings of Israel, as the house of Ahab had done, for he married a daughter of Ahab. He did evil in the eyes of the Lord. 7 Nevertheless, because of the covenant the Lord had made with David, the Lord was not willing to...

    Although homosexual men are a tiny sliver of the U.S. population, they account for the majority of all Americans living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced. Men who have sex with men (MSM) are two percent of the population but make up 55 percent of people who were HIV-positive in 2013, according to a CDC fact sheet released last Wednesday. More than nine out of 10 new HIV diagnoses (92 percent) come from young gay and bisexual MSM, ages 13 to 24. If these trends continue, one of every...

    When I was a child, I associated "muslim"with Malcolm X and Louis Farrakhan. As a teenager, I learned that Indonesia is the world's most populous muslim nation, and that only one in five muslims are Arab. As an adult, I have tended to associate Islam with Iran, which is overwhelmingly a Caucasian nation. In short, I have no racial profile for Islam. Islam is a religion, not a race. Race-baiting liberals like Paul Ryan and the fast-failing radio talker, Charlie Sykes, insist that any scrutiny of the practitioners of Islam is racist. This reveals their immature personalities; but, even more...

When I came to a "D", I actually said, "D as in Donald". It came out so innocently that I stopped in mid-sentence and snickered. The Rep laughed too, when I said I must be watching too much election coverage. Amazingly, he responded, "We're getting a lot of that particular spelling for "D" lately, he's great isn't he?"

    The suicide bomber who attacked a wedding party in the southeastern Turkish city of Gaziantep on Saturday killing 51 people was a child between the ages of 12 and 14, President Tayyip Erdogan said. “Initial evidence suggests it was a Daesh attack,” Erdogan said, using an Arabic name for ISIS, during a visit to Gaziantep after the attack. He said 69 people were in hospital and 17 were “heavily injured”. ISIS has been blamed for other attacks in Turkey, often targeting Kurdish gatherings in an effort to inflame ethnic tensions. The deadliest one was last October, when suicide bombers killed...

    On the Political Insiders segment of Fox Report Weekend this evening, John Leboutillier said the reason Hillary is winning in the swing states right now is she (and her PAC) have spent multi-millions on anti-Trump ads in the these states where the election will be won (or lost). Also, Hillary is attempting to raise 1 billion dollars! LeBoutillier said that Trump needs to take 100 million of his money and put it into his own anti-Hillary ads, or he's unlikely to win the election. I think he's right. I know the Trump campaign has begun to air ads but they've...

"Two disaffected black athletes from the United States put on a public display of petulance that sparked one of the most unpleasant controversies in Olympics history and turned the high drama of the games into theatre of the absurd." That is how the Time Magazine chose to describe the now iconic scene of Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising black-gloved fists high while standing atop the medal pedestal and refusing to look at the American flag. The year, of course, was 1968. Months earlier,...

It may be seen as a cross between The Price is Right and a State Department version of Casino Royale.

    There are some who see the prospect of Hillary Clinton winning the U.S. presidency as a milestone for modern feminism and women in general. Yet Clinton’s decades-long march to the White House owes much of its success to her rapscallion, silver-tongued husband, Bill Clinton. She did not storm the citadel of male power and privilege from the outside; she was escorted in under the banner of one of its most flamboyant high achievers. She came into politics by the back door of her mate’s male prowess. She may be the first female presidential nominee for a major party, but it’s...

    Donald Trump says the 2016 election will be "rigged." He has even suggested, despite very little evidence of actual voter fraud in the United States, that it's the only way he might lose a state like Pennsylvania. We shouldn't be surprised if this message catches on — if there is substantial questioning of an outcome in which he loses, especially in a close race. I laid out my case for why earlier this week. And now, more polling data suggests this is fertile territory for Trump to plant seeds of doubt in case he loses. Trump backers this year, it...

    Over the past several years, the sports media have presented several stories of youth athletes who have become addicted to prescription painkillers and eventually turned to heroin. In fact, one of these reports in Sports Illustrated was ominously titled 'How painkillers are turning young athletes into heroin addicts.' The narratives in these reports typically revolved around a young male athlete who sustained an injury, was prescribed painkillers to manage pain after surgery and eventually developed a dependence on these medications. This dependence then subsequently escalated into a heroin addiction, as heroin is a cheaper and more available alternative to prescription...

Mr Berdiyev, chairman of the Coordination Centre of North Caucasus Muslims, made the controversial comments when asked to comment on a report into the practice published earlier this week. “All women should be circumcised so there would be...

The title referenced a tweet by CNN’s Sally Kohn that defended Sharia law.

The Religion of Peace site reports: Homosexuals are beheaded, hanged and stoned in modern Saudi Arabia and Iran….Five other Muslim countries also have the death penalty on their books for homosexual behavior.
