    MIAMI, February 8, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) - In what could become a landmark decision, a Florida judge has ruled that a 23-month-old girl can have three people listed on her birth certificate as her parents. Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Antonio Marin approved a settlement between a lesbian couple, Maria Italiano and Cher Filippazzo, who were legally "married" in Connecticut, and Massimiliano Gerina, a homosexual who donated sperm for Italiano to become pregnant. Under Florida law, a sperm donor for artificial insemination has no paternity rights. However, Gerina claimed that in the verbal agreement he entered into with the lesbian couple...

    On a Sunday afternoon several months ago, I was engaged in one of my favorite religious rituals, watching pro football on television. During a break in the game, I reflexively clicked the “mute” button on the remote control. But my eyes stayed fixed on a startling commercial. The screen showed a balding man with tawny skin and a salt-and-pepper goatee, and seconds later it spelled out his name: Mujahid Abdul-Rashid. The advertisement went on to show him fishing, playing in a yard with two toddlers, and sitting down to a family meal. One week later, again during an N.F.L. game,...

    It doesn’t get any messier as Los Angeles police officers, involved in a statewide manhunt for an ex-LAPD colleague, came across vehicles matching the one sought by authorities in massive manhunt at two separate locations. The first location in Torrance involved Los Angeles police detectives from the Hollywood division, who got caught up in an officer involved shooting, which resulted in gunfire injuring two women that had been delivering newspapers. They have since been transported to an area hospital. The incident took place at approximately 5:20 a.m. in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue according to sources. The extent of...
  • Revealed: How nine-year-old Mexican girl who gave birth could really be aged FIFTEEN or older

    The nine-year-old girl who gave birth to a baby in Mexico is almost certainly far older - and could be 15 or more, it can be revealed today. Multiple sources told MailOnline that it was 'highly likely' that Dafne was not the age her mother claimed she was when she went into hospital with her daughter in labour. Dubious: Authorities will want to know why the girl's mother, who has been accused of being a prostitute, has possibly lied about her daughter's real age In a press conference last night Antonio Munoz Serrano, the health commissioner for the state of...

    The manager of the Las Vegas gun store that murder suspect and fired Los Angeles Police officer Christopher Jordan Dorner criticized in his manifesto said Dorner was a customer, but never purchased any firearms there. Tony Melendez, manager of Lock N Load said all customers' purchases are confidential, but the store never sold a gun to Dorner because he was a California resident. "He never purchased any firearms in the store," Melendez said. A California resident would not be able to legally purchase a firearm in Nevada or another state without having the weapon transferred to a federally-licensed gun dealer...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Immigration activists on Friday rejected the idea of granting legal status short of citizenship to illegal immigrants in emerging legislation. The activists said that only citizenship would be acceptable for the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants and that the compromise idea floated by some House Republicans, offering legalization but not citizenship, won't work. Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice, said allowing illegal immigrants to legalize their status without the prospect of citizenship would "create an institutionalized group of second-class non-citizens." "When we've said to a whole group of people, 'You're good enough to work here but...

    Things have certainly changed at Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts. From the renowned Catholic writer G. K. Chesterton getting a hearty laugh in the video above by saying, "I may not be much of a crusader, but at least I am not a Mohammedan," to the execrable, supremely arrogant Islamic supremacist pseudo-academic Caner K. Dagli, it is a steep descent indeed. (Thanks to Michael Coren for sending me the Chesterton video.) However, we are keeping the pressure on for the truth in Worcester. The Bishop of Worcester, Robert McManus, canceled my appearance at a Catholic Men's Conference in Worcester...

    February 8, 2013 Nuclear war over Rove's claims to work for Reagan; Gipper biographer says no Paul Bedard The war of words between conservatives and former Bush advisor Karl Rove has gone nuclear, this time over Rove's claim that he worked for Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign and on a Reagan advisory board. The bottom line: While Rove told The O'Reilly Factor Thursday that he worked for the Gipper, Reagan's acclaimed biographer Craig Shirley says there's no evidence to back Rove up. Worse: In an email Shirley is sending to conservative leaders, he reveals that Rove backed former President Ford in...

    ”It was never a medical decision — and that’s why I think the action came so fast… It was a political move.” “That’s how far we’ve come in ten years. Now we even have the American Psychiatric Association running scared.” — Barbara Gittings, Pro-homosexual Activist Introduction Homosexuality advocates like to appeal to position statements published by American mental health organizations to fortify their bogus claims concerning homosexuality issues. One would expect such professional groups to be a reliable source of unbiased information on such matters and that their official positions would be based on the most up-to-date and scientifically sound...

    (Newser) – A hacker has breached the personal email accounts of several Bush family members and friends, and discovered that the family was actively preparing for George HW Bush's death during his recent hospital stay. In material given to the Smoking Gun, the former president's chief of staff sent Bush's children a message saying, "Your dad's funeral team is having an emergency meeting at 10am," adding that this info "fell under the broadening category of things NOT TO TELL YOUR MOTHER." George W. Bush also said he was "thinking about [a] eulogy" in a Dec. 26 email. "Hopefully I'm jumping...

    (AP) – A long-forgotten piece of America's military history is going up for sale. The original smaller statue of the iconic raising of the US flag at Iwo Jima in 1945 is expected to fetch up to $1.8 million later this month at a New York auction dedicated to World War II artifacts. That such a statue even exists is news to all but the most ardent history buffs. Most Americans are familiar with Felix de Weldon's 1954 bronze version, the 32-foot-tall Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Va. Less well-known is the 12-and-1/2-foot-tall statue created soon after the...

    BIZ PAC Review (West Palm Beach, Florida) ^ | February 8, 2013 | Jonathon Moseley
    Republican insiders want to force Republican voters to choose more “electable” nominees than examples like Christine O’Donnell, Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, so Karl Rove launched the American Crossroads super PAC to counteract the tea party. Undeniably, better candidates are better and worse candidates are worse. Unfortunately, that meaningless platitude illustrates the problem. GOP elites have no idea who is going to win an election, and there are several reasons I say that. First, the establishment wants fiscal conservatives who downplay social issues. But drunken sailors are more restrained with money than establishment Republicans, the tea party complains. The trouble...

    A mother and daughter who were mistakenly shot by Los Angeles police hunting for rampage suspect Christopher Dorner had no warning before bullets started whizzing through their newspaper-delivery truck, their lawyer said Friday. “No command, no instruction, no warning. They just opened fire on them,” said Glen Jonas, who is representing Emma Hernandez, 71, and Margie Carranza, 47, in possible legal action against the LAPD. “They had no idea what was going on. They’re huddling, covering up and praying and hoping they’re not going to die.” Both women survived. Hernandez, shot in the back, was in good condition Friday. Her...

    A new poll reveals that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the most popular national figure among American voters. The Quinnipiac University national poll released Friday shows that Clinton enjoys a 61 percent favorability rating, 10 points higher than President Barack Obama. “Hillary Clinton ends her term as Secretary of State and the bruising inquiry into the Benghazi murders as easily the most popular actor on the American political stage today,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a press release. Obama’s job approval rating tumbled to 46 percent compared to 53 percent...

    BOTHEL -- A security guard shot a 15-year-old boy at a Food and Drug Administration regional facility in Bothell early Friday, according to police. Bothell Police Captain Denise Langford said it was not immediately clear why the guard fired at the boy at about 7 a.m. in the parking lot of the FDA's Pacific Regional Laboratory Northwest. The teenager got into a car after he was hit by gunfire and crashed into another vehicle about a mile away on the Bothell-Everett Highway, said Sgt. Cedric Collins of the Bothell police. He was taken to Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland with non-life-threatening...
