    Arizona – -( On a remote property on Perdiz Canyon Road, off of Highway 165, in New Mexico, a 59-year-old homeowner says that he woke up to find an intruder in his home.  The house is out of sight of the gate, down a long, dirt track that serves as a driveway.  The intruder is said to have sprayed the homeowner’s dog with pepper spray, then used a gun after the homeowner woke up.  From “(The intruder) fired a shot that went just wide of my client’s hip,” Cravens said.Cravens said his client used his cane to knock the...

    Dear Consistent Life, It was unwise as well as detrimental to CL’s reputation for justice, for you to publish your comment on the acquittal in the Zimmerman case. [Their lastest newsletter, featuring the Zimmerman Aquittal article, found at Link] Its assertions are, at best, unproved, and at worst, examples of the very prejudice and bigotry which is deplored in the article. Permit me to introduce you, perhaps for the first time, to some of the facts of the case. "Racism is the most obvious; it seems likely that Zimmerman perceived Martin as a threat because he was a young black...

    Last week it happened again. Another school. Another disturbed young person. Another needless firearm legally purchased. Another good person dead as a result. Last Tuesday, a 28 year-old former Spanish teacher named Shane Schumerth walked into the office of Dale Regan, the principal of the school where he had been recently fired, pulled out an AK-47 assault rifle and killed her before committing suicide. A week earlier, T.J. Lane, a 17 year-old Ohio boy, took out his .22 semi-automatic pistol and killed three people and injured two more. And the week before that, a third-grader grabs the family's legally bought...

    (CALGARY, Alberta) - There were sombre ceremonies across Tucson, Arizona on Sunday, January 8, 2012, in remembrance of Jared Loughner’s shooting spree a year earlier where he seriously wounded Representative Gabrielle Giffords, killed six and wounded 12 more. I suggest that the Untied States, is the only country in world, where remembrances could be held virtually every single day of the year for egregious killings of citizens by other citizens—all indirectly supported by the National Rifle Association. The day before the Tucson ceremonies, on January 7, there was a funeral in Brownsville, Texas, for a fifteen-year-old eighth grader who was...

  • Why Are Pacifist Europeans Declaring War on Libya?

    Pajamas Media ^ | March 23, 2011 | Soeren Kern
    An unintended but highly illuminating irony of the military intervention in Libya is that it has exposed the duplicity behind European pacifism. Ever since taking office in 2004, Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero has worked overtime to craft his own public persona as a “convinced pacifist.” His first official act as pacifist-in-chief was, famously, to withdraw Spanish troops from Iraq. That decision was not only wildly popular with Spanish voters, but it also cemented Zapatero’s pacifist credentials on the world stage. Zapatero has also been careful to appoint only pacifists as Spanish ministers of defense. Zapatero’s first defense...

    The bulldozer driver who crushed to death American activist Rachel Corrie seven years ago struggled Thursday just to recall her name. "It's Rachel-something," he testified in a Haifa courtroom. "Carrie?" The former Israeli reservist's courtroom appearance, his first public comments since the college student's 2003 death, was expected to be the dramatic climax of the Corrie family's long-running civil lawsuit against the Israeli government. But during more than four hours of testimony, the 38-year-old Russian immigrant, speaking from behind a screen to hide his identity, said he remembered little about that day and the young woman he ran over. ***...

    Presidents aren't meant to be passive. They are meant to lead, be role models, inspire, and most of all be persons who take massive action. President Obama is definitely not a role model, he definitely does not inspire, he is not a person of action, and most of all he doesn't even come close to being a real leader. It seems that everything Obama does makes things worse, and savvy Americans agree: since he took office we have become increasingly worse off. For roughly two years, he has stood by and let this once-great nation sink under the crushing weight...

    Most Americans probably agree that we have elected a highly articulate, talented president in Barack Obama. He has also given us a potentially great Secretary of State in Hillary Clinton. It makes me proud to witness these two recent political rivals working together to strengthen and enrich America at home and abroad. Recognizing the major economic crisis our new leader has inherited, we must hope his proposed economic plan will be helpful. I think it will. But as someone on the sidelines, may I suggest a few other steps? First, why not order all U.S. troops out of Iraq and...

    “Pacifists are like sheep who believe that wolves are vegetarians.” Yves Montand In every age, there are those that believe barbarism can be defeated with civility. Occasionally, those with such views rise to power and not only express those views but act on their views. Too often, if not most often, their civility is less than requited. In recent days, Obama has resumed the role of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton with regard to those that would do us harm. No greater example of that is Obama’s decision to release only the more difficult portions of the previously classified interrogation...

    WASHINGTON – While Barack Obama is basking in praise for his "decisive" handling of the Somali pirate attack on a merchant ship in the India Ocean, reliable military sources close to the scene are painting a much different picture of the incident – accusing the president of employing restrictive rules of engagement that actually hampered the rescue of Capt. Richard Phillips and extended the drama at sea for days. Multiple opportunities to free the captain of the Maersk Alabama from three young pirates were missed, these sources say – all because a Navy SEAL team was not immediately ordered to...

    .... And so it was sadly that I listened to the Dalai Lama pronounce last week that if the violence didn't cease he would have no option but to quit being Tibet's spiritual leader in exile. Whoa! I'll bet that really gave those Chinese generals a couple of sleepless nights! To all those out there with the "Free Tibet!" stickers, here are a few facts that will help the world make sense: 1. There will always be bad people. 2. Bad people don't care about hurting good people. Appeals to shame, empathy and guilt don't work on them. That's why...

    Iran hostage crisis, in U.S. history, events following the seizure of the American embassy in Tehran by Iranian students on Nov. 4, 1979. The overthrow of Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlevi of Iran by an Islamic revolutionary government earlier in the year had led to a steady deterioration in Iran-U.S. relations. In response to the exiled shah's admission (Sept., 1979) to the United States for medical treatment, a crowd of about 500 seized the embassy. Of the approximately 90 people inside the embassy, 52 remained in captivity until the end of the crisis.
