    Murder victim Horacio Cooks was laid to rest Saturday and, just hours after a family gathering following the funeral, his first cousin was gunned down outside a Birmingham service station. Tim Cooks, 26, was shot multiple times in the chest and stomach about 3 a.m. Sunday outside the Shell station on Third Avenue West. His family, still reeling from the June 18 shooting death of 28-year-old Horacio Cooks, said it's almost more than they can bear. "We can't believe it,'' said Sandra Cooks, one of Tim's sisters. "Two deaths in two weeks. The family is really grieving." Horacio was found...

So far, the Mainstream Media has been reluctant to share Mr. Wade’s current legal troubles. The Obama White House has no comment as well. Read more at

So deep into his monologue on the topic, Levin mused that the CNN debate hosts should ask more nuanced version of the Republican nominee question Bret Baier asked in the Fox News debate, and they should ask it of...

How steep has the rise in terror activity been this year?

Cardinal Biffi said the Antichrist was not the beast with seven heads described in the Book of Revelation but a "fascinating personality" whose outward charm and plausibility had deceived his enemies. The cardinal said the Antichrist espoused vegetarianism, pacifism, environmentalism and animal rights. He also identified the Antichrist as an expert on the Bible who nonetheless promotes "vague and fashionable spiritual values" rather than the Scriptures. He advocates ecumenical dialogue between the...

The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) quoted the Committee for Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) as saying: "Park Geun-hye's recent behaviour with Obama was like a mean immature girl begging gangsters to beat up someone she does not like. Or a crafty prostitute eagerly trying to frame someone by giving her body to a powerful pimp."

That the President doesn’t have the authority to repeal provisions of a law passed by Congress doesn’t seem to matter anymore.

He seems to believe he is free to do anything he wants without negotiating with Congress. Obama wouldn’t give the House Republicans a crumb back in October, now he’s unilaterally done just what...

    I don’t have to tell you I’m not a racist; my life speaks for me.  Yet, I will probably be called a racist because of this post. I don’t like what happened to Trayvon Martin and I don’t claim to understand the frame of mind George Zimmerman was in when he fired his weapon. I don’t know the whole story behind the story. None of us do, yet. But this I know: a kid is dead and his killer is being publicly executed.  The state of Florida is investigating the killing more slowly than some think is necessary and the Panthers have a bounty on Zimmermans’ head.

    In photos and videos, Datqunn Sawyer strikes menacing poses, flashes large sparkly rings and parades around parties with a woman on each arm. It was a lifestyle Sawyer fueled with violence, forcing underage girls and vulnerable women into a life of prostitution and then keeping all of their cash, federal prosecutors say.

The Obama administration says this is crucial so that this country will have a workforce prepared for the jobs of the 21st century.

    In the gloomy Officers’ Mess of a rain-swept Royal Marines base on a miserable October morning, choirmaster Gareth Malone is chatting animatedly about the importance of encouraging people to sing, when he is interrupted by a very large, rather menacing individual in green Army fatigues. “I just wanted to shake your hand,” the marine says, thrusting out his own massive mitt towards Malone. “My wife thinks you’re the dog’s bollocks” The contrast between the fresh-faced, bespectacled, slightly fogey-ish choirmaster and this gruff giant of British military manhood borders on the comical. Yet the encounter illustrates the degree to which Malone,...

    A substitute teacher for a special-education school in North St. Paul has admitted to trying to sway a student to engage in prostitution. Tameshia Leeann Allen-Hodges, 23, of Oakdale was accused of bringing a 21-year-old female student with developmental disabilities to her home, where she took photos of the student in lingerie and suggested she perform sex acts for money. The photos were posted online with the student's contact information. The student told police she received multiple calls and said at least one man came to Allen-Hodges' apartment, though the student said she did not engage in any physical contact...

    The Obama administration will announce plans Wednesday to seek investors' ideas for turning thousands of foreclosed properties owned by government-backed entities into rental homes, according to administration officials. The move is intended to put a floor under declining home prices by creating a way to deal with hundreds of thousands of potential foreclosures in coming years. Mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac sold a record 100,000 homes during the second quarter. Together with the Federal Housing Administration, the entities owned about 250,000 homes at the end of June, or around half of all unsold, repossessed properties. Another 830,000 homes...
