    Ruling in the case of a Richmond teenager serving 50 years to life for a 2011 killing, the California Supreme Court said Thursday that youths serving potential life terms for murder are entitled to parole hearings within 25 years under a new state law. The court also ruled 6-1 that the teenager, Tyris Franklin, should have another hearing before his trial judge in Contra Costa County to allow witnesses to describe his mental state, lack of maturity and other factors that might have contributed to the crime. That evidence wasnt allowed at Franklins sentencing hearing, because the 50-to-life term was...

    CHINO, Calif. -- A California panel recommended parole Thursday for former Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten more than four decades after she went to prison for the notorious killings of a wealthy grocer and his wife. The decision will now undergo administrative review by the Board of Parole Hearings. If upheld it goes to Gov. Jerry Brown, who has the final word on whether the now-66-year-old Van Houten is released from the California Institution for Women in Chino. Brown previously blocked the parole of former Manson follower Bruce Davis, citing the gravity of his offenses and his refusal to...

    INTRODUCTION BY LASHA DARKMOON Europe is under sentence of death. The mass rape and murder of the indigenous population of Europe in their own homelands by the unstoppable hordes of the Third World is now perhaps inevitable. We in our ancestral homelands, clinging to what remains of our cherished heritage, need to prepare for a grim future of unparalleled sufferings. Europe is dying, dying slowly. There is no way Europe is going to survive the cataclysms ahead unless Europeans take drastic action, without delay, to reverse the menacing tide of mass immigrationif necessary by mass deportation of the invaders....

    When Walt Disney’s “Girl Meets World” actress Rowan Blanchard interviewed Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards for Paper Magazine, the 14-year-old star called the woman running America’s largest abortion provider her “role model.” “When I name my role models, it’s women like you and women like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and people like that who have really taken something and driven it forward,” Blanchard said to Richards during a Q&A published Saturday. Richards goes on to explain how Planned Parenthood is “beta testing for a new app to help young girls and young women who are starting their period to track their...

    After a Texas grand jury this week rejected criminal allegations against Planned Parenthood related to a series of controversial undercover videos released last year, House Democrats are accusing their Republican colleagues of being "all too eager to jump to conclusions at the risk of women's health." (snip) Representative Jan Schakowsky, the top Democrat on the House panel investigating the organization, has said Republicans now should admit they are wrong in the wake of the indictment. The DCCC hasn't yet called for the committee to be disbanded but "absolutely believes" it should be, says Meredith Kelly, DCCC national press secretary. "House...

    It has become sadly unoriginal for abortion doctors to use religion as an excuse for killing unborn babies. Mississippi abortion doctor Willie Parker regularly defends his abortion practice with religious references, claiming his abortion career is "a ministry" and the parable of the Good Samaritan inspired him to abort unborn babies. Young abortion doctor-in-training Carolyn Payne also recently wrote a column, claiming that her Christian faith motivated her to pursue a career as an abortionist. And in November, pro-lifers in Chicago filmed an unnamed abortionist as she knelt and prayed on the sidewalk, thanking God that she can abort unborn...

The representatives with the most experience harvesting fetal organs, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola, and Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s Director of Research Melissa Farrell, indicated this already happens at their sites as a routine matter.

The timing of the endorsement is particularly striking, with the Iowa caucuses—the first primary-type event to occur nationwide for the 2016 Presidential election—is now less than one month out.

    Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who opened fire on a San Bernardino holiday party earlier this month, were buried Tuesday in a quiet, graveside funeral guarded by FBI agents. Many of those who attended mosque with the couple refused to attend, two mosque members said. U.S.-born Farook, 28, and his Pakistani-born wife Malik, 29, killed 14 people and injured 21, in what U.S. officials have called a terrorist attack. They died later that day in a gun battle with police.

    More 200 protesters denounced Planned Parenthood on Saturday in Pembroke Pines as part of a nationwide protest over whether fetal tissues recovered during abortions are sold for profit. The protest began about 9 a.m. in front of the clinic along University Drive, on the north side of Pines Boulevard. Police cars parked in front of the clinic as a precaution. Clinic workers stood outside to escort patients if needed. But there did not appear to be confrontations, as a ditch separated the clinic and protesters.

That Planned Parenthood is the target of a withering attack by anti-abortion activists is no surprisethey have been at war for years.

    Planned Parenthood has become one of the most attacked groups in America. Daily protests, funding threats and sting videos featuring hired actors are the norm. Shootings, bombings, arson and chemical-weapon attacks are less frequent but still occur against the group, which has been operating since 1916 and which a Republican president Richard Nixon, no less funded in 1970. Seriously El Chapo gets less heat than Planned Parenthood does. Im tempted to wonder whether the group was involved in hiding Osama bin Laden, they get so much political vitriol.

Planned Parenthood also received $528.4 million from government grants and reimbursements, which equaled 41 percent of its revenue. The federal government is prohibited from paying directly for abortions through Title X family planning grants and reimbursements; however, federal funds do pay for Planned Parenthood operations, including the clinics where abortions are...

The new campaign-trail martyr is Clayton Lockett, an African-American who kidnapped four people, including a 18 year-old woman whom he raped and then killed after she watched her grave being dug for 20 minutes. Obama has the same motive as he did 2012 boosting turnout of his most important bloc.

The change comes days after the state revealed that it had been unable to obtain the chemicals for its existing protocol: pentobarbital and vecuronium prompting a court to delay the executions of convicted murderers Charles Warner and Clayton Lockett for a month. In the revised protocol given to the men's defense team, prison officials outline five possible one-drug and three-drug injections it could use to kill...

    For decades, California's criminal justice policies ensured that murderers and others sentenced to life, with the possibility of parole, could expect to die in prison. And most of the time, they did. Since Gov. Jerry Brown assumed office in January 2011, a record number of inmates with life sentences are winning parole. Brown has allowed the release of nearly 1,400 lifers, while going along with the parole board about 82 percent of the time.

    In the English language, the word Spartan has come to mean austere. The culture of ancient Sparta was so harsh that mothers would send their sons off to war with the warning, Return with your shield or on it. Spartan austerity began at birth. New-born infants were examined and if they were not fit, they were left to die. Infanticide was not unusual in the ancient world. But, in Sparta, it was managed by the state with chilling efficiency. What mattered most was not the individual, but the nation. Weak individuals were not allowed to drain the strength of one...

    An 86-year-old Korean War veteran died earlier this month days after he was beaten and stabbed during a violent home robbery. Carroll Jordan of Chickasaw, Ala., was attacked on Jan. 27 and died 12 days later as a result of complications from surgery. Considering the brutal nature of the crime, two of the suspects charged in Jordans death DeAngelo Terrell Smith, 21, Yasmine Munnerlyn, 19 sported some curious grins in their mug shots. The third suspect, and Carlos Nottingham, 20, had a more somber look in his official police photo. The three, who have reportedly had past issues...

    The same is true about people. We now know that homicide and gun violence are overwhelmingly concentrated among serious offenders operating in groups: gangs, drug crews, and the like representing under half of one percent of a city's population who commit half to three-quarters of all murders. Read it once more: under half of one percent commit half to three-quarters of all murders. It is vitally important for us to realize the recent worst of the worst roundup had very little to do with race, yet to the uninformed it clearly appeared that only blacks were targeted....

    Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, told a rally in Omaha last week that illegal immigration has killed more Americans than the attacks on September 11th. King spoke an event Friday held for victims of crimes committed by people who are in the U.S. illegally. Recalling a conversation he had with a former INS agent, Mike Cutler, during a congressional hearing, King said he asked Cutler, How many Americans have died at the hands of [illegal immigrants] who did make it into America? Whats the price Americans are paying for an open door policy? King claims that Cutler responded, I dont know...

    A congressional select committee could offer immunity to the CIA’s dispersed, intimidated survivors. You can always tell the depth of an event’s illegality by the measures people take to cover it up. By that measure, the conduct of President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and David Petraeus leading up to the terrorist attack that killed four Americans on 9/11 2012 must be must be so sufficiently wrongful that, if revealed, they could lead to the president’s impeachment.How else can we gauge what is apparently the most energetic coverup in modern history? We know, from several sources, that the survivors of the attack —...

    The Israeli cabinet took a courageous and politically unpopular step by approving the release of 104 Palestinian prisoners, including many terrorists who had murdered Israeli babies, women, the elderly and other civilians. According to Israeli intelligence some of these released murderers are likely to rejoin terrorist organizations and may kill again. Relatives and friends of the victims have protested the decision to release these killers. Yet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet withstood these pressures and ordered their release. The United States government had pressured the Israeli government to release these prisoners because the Palestinian Authority had made...

    Democrats in the House and Senate are looking to stop what they say are deceptive advertising practices by anti-abortion health clinics that imply they offer abortion services, but instead encourage birth and promote adoption. The legislation is aimed at crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), which are clinics often set up by a church or other anti-abortion groups. Democrats in Congress and other pro-abortion groups say these clinics are known to indicate they can perform abortions in order to attract pregnant women patients, and then try to convince them to carry their babies to term. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), the House sponsor...
