Boris Nemtsov, 55, a former deputy prime minister, was shot four times from a passing car as he was walking on a bridge just outside the Kremlin. Interior Ministry spokeswoman Yelena Alexeyeva told reporters on the scene that Nemtsov was walking with a female acquaintance, a Ukrainian citizen, when a vehicle drove up and unidentified assailants shot him dead. The woman wasn't hurt.

    ISIS has reportedly murdered 15 of the Assyrian Christians it captured earlier this week. Aid to the Church in Need reported that the Islamist group murdered a number of Assyrians it took from Hassake governorate in Syria.

Many of them were fighting to defend and protect the villages and families.” The captured came from a number of villages in the area: 14 people from Tel Hormizd, 81...

    To the four clean-cut college freshman out on a double date, it had seemed like a typical McDonald's: spanking clean, well-lighted, and safe. It was in a good neighborhood too, right next to Texas A&M University in College Station -- a campus known for its friendly atmosphere and official down-home greeting: “howdy” Shortly after 2 a.m that Sunday, they pulled into the parking lot of so-called “University McDonald's” – and beheld a scene unlike anything portrayed in all those wholesome McDonald's television commercials. Before them, hundreds of young black males were loitering about, some without shirts. Other local residents --...

Lush mango, palm and pomegranate trees are in bloom, their thick, green leaves whispering in a gentle breeze.The cinder-block storehouse where he was executed is empty, save for some flower pots, a cot and crumpled packs of cigarettes strewn across the floor.

    The Muslim supremacists have their own reason for pushing this victim card, and it involves providing justification for offensive jihad against unbelievers By now, the reader has surely heard about the murder last week of three Muslim students at the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill by Craig Stephen Hicks, a local resident. Because the killer is a gun-owning white male with a rather unshaven appearance, the immediate assumption made before the facts of the case began to come out, even by many conservatives, was that Hicks must be a right-wing Christian Tea Partier who killed the students because they were...

A self described “radical atheist” or “anti-theist,” Craig Stephen Hicks, shot three victims in the head on Tuesday—21-year-old Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salah, her 19-year-old sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salah, and her husband, 23-year-old Deah Shaddy Barakat. Reportedly, the three murders may have been the result of a long standing dispute over a parking space. Murder isn’t really news these days. The bastions of Liberal governance—Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, and New York—are killing fields where the depraved roam unfettered and prey with impunity on the disarmed....

    Things are very bad in South Africa. When the scourge of apartheid was finally smashed to pieces in 1994, the country seemed to have a bright future ahead of it. Eight years later, in 2002, 60 percent of South Africans said life had been better under apartheid. Hard to believe — but that’s how bad things were in 2002. And now they’re even worse. When apartheid ended, the life expectancy in South Africa was 64 — the same as in Turkey and Russia. Now it’s 56, the same as in Somalia. There are 132.4 rapes per 100,000 people per year,...

In Carter v. Canada, the Court overturned a previous law prohibiting assisted suicide, in effect reversing the previous 1993 Rodriguez decision in which it said the state’s obligation to “protect the vulnerable” outweighed the rights of the individual to self-determination. The ruling makes Canada join the ranks of Switzerland, the...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former hip-hop music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was charged Monday with murder and attempted murder after he struck two men with his pickup truck last week. Prosecutors allege that Knight intended to run down a friend and another man after an argument on a movie set. One of the men was killed. Attorney James Blatt says Knight accidentally ran over the men on Thursday as he tried to escape a vicious attack. He turned himself in to police on Friday. Knight's initial bail of $2 million was revoked Monday after a court commissioner agreed with authorities...

    The “conventional wisdom” says former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was tragically shot and killed by a former soldier suffering from PTSD. But perhaps there’s another version of the story no one wants to talk about. What if Routh had been converted to militant Islam in Iraq and sought Kyle out as retribution? There are some disturbing facts about Routh you most likely will have never read. According to The Warfighter Foundation, it is highly unlikely Routh suffered from PTSD because he never served in battle. “Eddie Routh served one tour in Iraq in 2007, at Balad Air Base (the 2nd...

    Former rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight, founder of one of the genre’s leading labels, had his $2 million bail revoked in Los Angeles after his arrest in running down and killing a man. Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says detectives asked a bail commissioner Monday to keep the Death Row Records founder behind bars because he is a possible flight risk. Authorities also cited Knight’s history of violent crimes and the possibility he would intimidate witnesses. …

    Pro-choice writer Wendy Simonds interviewed abortionists and clinic workers for her book, Abortion at Work: Ideology and Practice in a Feminist Clinic. She quotes one abortionist saying: The thing I like about the procedure [abortion] is that… When you feel like you are indeed a talented abortionist, you can get through the difficult cases… it’s dealing with a fibroid in the uterus; knowing what to do if you have an infection on the cervix, or if someone has put laminaria in there… when they really shouldn’t have because the cervix was friable, then knowing how to do this with such...

    The mainstream media in both the U.S. and Europe have done a stellar job protecting the identities of two men who committed a gruesome atrocity against a 19-year-old pregnant woman and her unborn child, and for good reason: the men are Muslims. Not wishing to fuel the “Islamophobia” that liberals claim is so dangerous, the cowardly media bows to Sharia law by safeguarding the very ideology that contributed to these two criminals’ violent choices. This political correctness continues to protect the offenders, subsequently victimizing the innocent and creating more potential victims. According to German newspaper KOPP, a 19-year-old German woman,...
  • Sociologists Warn of 'Christianophobia' Among Progressive Activists

    A recent study by two sociologists at the University of North Texas found that strong hostility toward Christians is held by a “small, but elite group” of Americans with considerable political and cultural influence, particularly in higher education. After noting evidence of anti-Christian hostility among cultural progressive activists, sociology professors David Williamson and George Yancey took a “systematic look” at the qualitative data from an extensive national survey, the American National Election Survey, and conducted interviews with members of liberal advocacy organizations. They published their findings in their recent book, So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is there Christianophobia in...

    Former rap music mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was fleeing for his life when he allegedly ran over two people – killing one of them – in Compton on Thursday afternoon, his attorney James Blatt says. A group of people attacked Knight and threatened to kill him and were “attempting to drag him outside of the vehicle when he made an effort to escape ... in fear for his life,” Blatt told the Los Angeles Times on Friday morning. But police have a different view. After interviewing the onetime hip-hop mogul, Los Angeles County detectives arrested him for murder.

    BREAKING: TALIBAN CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR MURDER OF THREE AMERICANS AT KABUL AIRPORT On Wednesday White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz argued that the Taliban is not a terrorist group, but instead an “armed insurgency.” On Thursday White House Spokesman Josh Earnest doubled-down on the idiocy. Earnest told reporters: “They have a different classification. They have a classification that does allow us to place financial concessions against them that have succeeded in limiting their capability. They’ve been effective. And that is different than an organization like Al-Qaeda that has much broader global aspiration to carry out acts of violence and...
