  • Abortionist: abortion is a “sacrament” and women abort out of love

    In an article in Florida Today, abortionist Patricia Baird-Windle had some things to say about her work: I now consider abortion to be a major blessing, and to be a sacrament in the hands of women….At the very crucible of the sacrament of abortion work is the sentence in a letter written to me by a woman when I retired, and that is some women have an abortion out of love for the baby. She identifies herself as “pro-abortion.” So what exactly is this “sacrament” that is done out of “love”? A while ago I interviewed Catherine Anthony Adair, a...

    Kill Stop and Frisk, attack police for doing their jobs and promote the grievances of criminals… and strangely enough more shootings happen. The murder rate in New York City has spiked an alarming 20% in the first two months of the year, prompting NYPD brass to rethink strategy to curb the deadly trend.Since Jan. 1, 54 murders have been recorded in the city, up nine from the same period a year ago, according to the grim stats released Monday.Shootings have also climbed 20% — with 149 so far in 2015 compared with 126 in the first two months of 2014....

The news was given by Archimandrite Emanuel Youkhana to the Catholic organization Aid to the Church in Need on Thursday. ”Many of them,” he said, ”were defending their villages and their families.” One woman was beheaded in the village Tel Hormidz and two men were shot to death. There is no information at the moment on how the other 12 were killed. Youkhana added that the number...

    In Senate hearings designed to vet Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, the question of whether it is constitutional for the government to use extrajudicial lethal force on an American citizen on American soil failed to elicit the obvious “NO” that should be expected from someone aiming to become the nation’s top law enforcer. As Lynch sees it, “it all depends on who gives the order. If it’s someone trustworthy like President Obama, I think we give him the benefit of the doubt.

    The 43 Mexican students who disappeared in southern Mexico in September were abducted by police on order of a local mayor, and are believed to have been turned over to a gang that killed them and burned their bodies before throwing some remains in a river, the nation's attorney general said Friday. This is the conclusion that investigators have reached, Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said, though he cautioned that it cannot be known with certainty until DNA tests confirm the identities. This will be a challenge, he said, as the badly burned fragments make it difficult to extract DNA....

    The US State Department on Tuesday commented on the murder of three Israeli teens, on the same day the funeral for the three was held in the attendance of hundreds and thousands of Israelis. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf struck a cautious tone over who was to blame for the kidnapping, asserting that "the investigation of the abduction and murder indicates the involvement of Hamas in the affair, but at this stage we have not determined that Hamas is responsible." The statement was reported by Yedioth Aharonoth's Washington correspondent Yitzhak Ben-Horin. Harf's ambivalent comment comes despite the IDF's announcement last...

Steven Zelich, 52, a security officer, was charged Thursday with two counts of hiding a corpse. He was arrested Wednesday, when detectives wearing hazmat suits removed large bags of evidence and a refrigerator from his apartment in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb.

    Criminal illegal aliens released by the Obama administration between 2009 and 2011 went on to be charged with 19 murders, three attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, a House Judiciary Committee report previously documented. The statistics pose a grim outlook for the 36,007 additional criminal illegal aliens reportedly released last year by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, or ICE. A 2012 House report reviewed the effectiveness of the Secure Communities program, a project initially launched by the Bush administration to build databases that identify illegal aliens who qualify for deportation. The data covered arrests from October 2008 through...

Davis' parole must still be affirmed by California Governor Jerry Brown, who reversed a similar decision by the same board last year, saying that the 71-year-old convicted killer remained a danger to the public.

He was also charged with attempted murder in the wounding of a third youth. Hailey and Mormon were killed after a masked gunman sprayed the teens with bullets in Newark then took off running at 10 p.m. on Dec. 25.

He was convicted on two racketeering counts, 11 murders, 3 counts of conspiracy to commit murder, seven extortion counts, one drug count and six money laundering counts.

However, when we rank the extraordinary crime levels for each of these 'dangerous' cities, we noticed a startling trend in our quick research, and we weren't the only ones who noticed it, apparently. You see, each of these cities has one commonality being that each is also led by a Democrat Mayor, and these days you know what Democrat actually means.... "Liberal." Indeed, if...

The cumulative effect of these shootings produces the equivalent of a Sandy Hook massacre every few days, but that doesn’t fit the media’s narrative so that fact is never mentioned. Any objective review of the number of gunshot murders in America tells us they aren’t happening in Hasidic neighborhoods; or Scandinavian enclaves....

    cities are the heartland of America’s real gun culture. It isn’t the bitter gun-and-bible clingers in McCain and Romney territory who are racking up a more horrifying annual kill rate than Al Qaeda; it’s Obama’s own voting base. Chicago matches the murder rate for Japan and is higher than the murder rates for Spain, Poland and pre-war Syria. If Chicago gets any worse, it will find itself passing the homicide rate for the entire country of Canada. Chicago’s murder rate of 15.65 per 100,000 people looks nothing like the American 4.2 rate, the Midwestern 4.5 or the Illinois’ 5.6 rates,...

The sentence was the result of a plea bargain between lawyers for Mark Bassely Youssef and federal prosecutors.

Unable to raise her head or scream for help, the victim slowly suffocate in her own blood. According to testimony, "a process a pathologist would later determine took between five and...
  • Six Watergates and counting (Maddow: Benghazi debacle, Fast & Furious are not "legitimate scandals")

    I guess this was inevitable. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) joined the chorus of Republicans criticizing President Obama's response to the violence in Libya on Monday, going so far as to suggest that the administration's handling of the situation is worse than Watergate -- the scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon: "I think this is an issue -- Benghazi-gate is the right term for this. This is very, very serious, probably more serious than Watergate." Now, Blackburn struggled to explain what it is about the attack she considers Watergate-like, or even what she's accusing the administration of, exactly. But for...

    "Afghan officials said that the clash on Saturday was a misunderstanding and that the Americans apparently attacked an Afghan National Army unit in error. A top coalition officer said the Americans were attacked first in what might possibly have been an insurgent attack. Nonetheless, he expressed regret for what ensued... "

    The Justice Department's inspector general cleared Attorney General Eric Holder Wednesday of knowing about the gun-walking operation known as Fast and Furious that allowed thousands of weapons to cross into Mexico. But Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that there were "serious failures" at both the Justice Department and its Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives going back more than six years, CBS Radio News reporter Stephanie Lambidakis reports. Horowitz found that no one running the operations—not agents, nor prosecutors, nor managers—questioned the wisdom of letting guns vanish across the border with Mexico, where they ended up in the hands...

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Saturday to discuss the rising number of "insider" attacks in which Afghan security forces have turned their guns on American and other coalition troops. Spokesman George Little said Panetta encouraged Karzai to work with U.S. commanders to ensure more rigorous vetting of Afghan recruits. Little said Panetta and Karzai agreed that American and Afghan officials need to work together to address a problem that has intensified in recent days. In the latest incident, an Afghan police officer on Friday shot to death two U.S. servicemen during a training exercise in...

    In the last Debunker, we examined the relationship between gun ownership and the murder rate. We found that the most recent statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed that annual gun purchases increased by more than 60 percent over the past decade, while the murder rate declined by more than 14 percent. We concluded that either “(1) there is no correlation between gun ownership and the murder rate, or (2) gun ownership is negatively correlated with the murder rate (in other words, more guns means fewer murders).” Some comments online have argued that we did not prove the point:...

    Ten people were shot in three separate incidents in Roxbury, Roslindale and Dorchester yesterday, and at least three were killed — two of them women — as Sunday turned bloody, police said. “It’s horrendous,” Boston police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said on Harlem Street in Roxbury, where two women were killed and two other women were wounded when their vehicle was sprayed with gunfire by unknown suspects who may have fled in a white car. The motives in that and the other incidents were not immediately clear. “We’re working the scene, and there are a lot of clues. It’s a...

  • Democrats Defend Holder: Maloney on Fast and Furious, ‘There’s Nothing There’

    House Democrats defended Attorney General Eric Holder, who faces a contempt of Congress vote against him on Thursday for withholding documents related to the botched gun-walking program Operation Fast and Furious. Also, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) said his support for contempt votes against Bush administration personnel were not comparable to the situation today. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), a supporter of stricter gun control laws, said there is “nothing there,” in reference to Fast and Furious, a Justice Department program that began in the fall of 2009 and allowed guns to flow to Mexico. It was halted when two guns from...
