  • N.J. scoutmaster 'groomed' boy for sex, cops say

    07/30/2015 1:44:46 PM PDT · by Mount Athos · 50 replies
    A scoutmaster with a Boy Scout troop in South Jersey was "grooming" a young boy for sexual purposes by buying him pricey gifts, officials said Thursday. The Cape May man, Frank Thomson, was arrested and charged Tuesday with luring an 11-year-old boy after a concerned citizen tipped off authorities earlier this month to suspicious activity between the two, Cape May County Prosecutor Robert L. Taylor said in a release. During several interviews with 68-year-old man, authorities say they discovered a separate incident several years ago where Thomson sexually assaulted a young boy. Additional charges were brought against Thomson on Wednesday....

    Fresh off the heels of the Boy Scouts of America’s decision Monday to end its ban on gay adult leaders, Oklahomans for Equality has announced its intention to form a local Cub Scout pack. Operating out of the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center, 621 E. Fourth St., the organization will charter the troop through Tulsa’s Boy Scouts chapter, the Indian Nations Council. The interest is there — both from youth participants and adults taking part in its leadership — and now it’s just a matter of getting all the paperwork in order and approval from the local council, said Andrew...

    Once upon a time, there was a teacher who undermined parents rights. Sound familiar? It should. This has become a common story in classrooms across America, as more liberal teachers latch on to kids books with homosexual themes. But for moms and dads in North Carolina, the news that their third graders were listening to gay fairy tales didnt have the happy ending teacher Omar Currie hoped for. A homosexual himself, the elementary school teacher thought the book King and King would encourage his class to treat others with respect. What he didnt count on was the overwhelming feeling of...

They were indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Minneapolis and are accused of illegally taking bonuses for signing up new recruits. According to the indictments, Timothy Stafford is accused of fraud in kickbacks on the enlistment of 25 soldiers, and Terry Wosmek and Quinton Jones are accused of receiving kickbacks for four recruits each.

    Oxytocin is that feel good hormone that bonds a child to his or her mother. But never mind that. Researchers in Hawaii are recruiting girls as young as 14 to participate in second trimester abortions, where the preborn baby is 18-24 weeks gestation, in order to test whether or not oxytocin can reduce bleeding in mothers during and after abortion. The study is being conducted by the University of Hawaii and the University of Washington in Seattle both public universities, which leads to the obvious question: is the government funding this study? A second trimester abortion is at least...

    For the first time since 2010, Alabama does not lead's team recruiting rankings. USC, which also led's rankings in '10, jumped the Crimson Tide for the top spot in '15. Alabama will instead have to settle for the second-ranked class in the country. The Trojans closed out their recruiting this year with a flourish, landing four five-star recruits between Tuesday and Wednesday to finish with 26 total commitments, 21 of whom were rated four- or five-star talents. The last time USC topped the recruiting rankings was its final class before NCAA-imposed sanctions limited the number of scholarships available....

    A big part of the fight against the terror group known as ISIS and ISIL is taking place on American soil in places where young people are leaving the country to go join their cause, even fight and die overseas. Perhaps the biggest question of all is: Who is recruiting? It's a question no one seems to be able to answer definitively in Minnesota, but a lot of fingers are pointing at Amir Meshal, a former al Qaeda suspect who lived on a quiet cul de sac in Eden Prairie, Minn., until recently. Yet, some believe he may actually be...

    A Minnesota youth center is at the heart of a federal grand jury investigation into a suspected ISIS terrorist pipeline. The FBI says that someone on the ground in Minnesota is convincing young people to join the terror fight in Syria, then giving them money to get there. Up to 30 Somali-Americans who have reportedly joined or tried to join terrorist groups overseas had attended Al Farooq Youth and Family Center in Minnesota. Thats the same mosque that kicked out 31-year-old Amir Meshal this summer for allegedly proselytizing radical Islam ideologies

Last week, Russian television showed an interview of former soldiers who fought in Afghanistan and elsewhere, fighting in East Ukraine with pro-Russian rebels. 900 French citizens have traveled to Syria and Iraq since 2012, according...

ISIS has also financially benefitted by the erasure of Obama's "Syrian Redline," Obama's abandonment of Military support for ally Iraq, and a pledge to not send US Marines or Army Troops back into Iraq.

    Obesity has become the leading cause of new recruits being rejected from the US Army as they struggle to meet fitness standards. And military officials have warned expanding waistlines in the warrior corps are causing a national security concern as the Army is being forced to dismiss a rising number of overweight soldiers. During the first 10 months of this year, the Army, under pressure to cut the number of troops, kicked out 1,625 soldiers for being out of shape - around 15 times the number discharged for that reason in 2007. Between 1998 and 2010, the number of active-duty...

"On one hand, we're eliminating assistance to men and women who served our country ... and on the other hand, we're paying for race cars."

    The CIA has produced a new batch of TV ads for recruiting Arab and Iranian-Americans. Especially those with a good knowledge of the languages and cultures of the old country. Such recruiting has been a tricky business, because we are war with an entity that identifies itself via culture and religion; not nationality. A polyglot nation like the United States has citizens, and non-citizens, from all parts of the world. This creates opportunities (for recruiting intelligence operatives) and dangers (spies in our midst) in wartime. And we are at war, with over a dozen Islamic terrorist attacks within the U.S....

    By now, Sekou Jackson is used to the questions: Why does he need to leave a work meeting to pray? Don't black Muslims convert to Islam in jail? Why would you even want to be Muslim? "It's kind of a double whammy to be African-American and Muslim," said Jackson, who studies the Navy at the National Academy of Science in Washington. "You're going to be judged." Jackson's struggle may have gotten harder when the FBI raided a Detroit mosque Wednesday, saying its leader preached hate against the government, trafficked in stolen goods and belonged to a radical group that wants...

    Armed Forces hits recruiting goalsMilitary Recruitment Hits 35 Year High 10-19-09 Last Update: 7:47 pm Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - For the first time in 35 years, all branches of the military met their recruiting goals for 2009. The Army had more than 70,000 people sign up; the Navy had close to 36,000; the Marine Corps got 31,000 new recruits and the Air Force came in with close to 32,000. The high unemployment rate, coupled with increased education costs, is at the heart of the successful recruiting campaign. Recruiting tactics haven't changed. Recruiters still work hard to reach people, especially at high...

    THANKS to a mix of patriotism and high unemployment, every one of our military services exceeded its recruiting goals for fiscal year 2009. That's the good news. The bad news is that, after eight years of indecisive war and ravaged personal lives, the Army's losing the experienced officers and NCOs it needs to train and lead those new recruits. The Army's tough. But after years of voices crying wolf for political purposes, there's real trouble looming on the personnel front. I joined a broken Army after Vietnam. I don't want to see an Army resembling that one again. Yes, we...
  • Anti-bullying effort in Alameda under fire

    A small East Bay school district's effort to protect children of nontraditional families from being bullied has sparked a lawsuit from an out-of-town Christian legal group and a campaign to recall three school board members. On one side are parents who believe the Alameda Unified School District board's decision to authorize a lesson in the so-called Caring Schools Community Curriculum violates their rights to teach their children about sexuality issues on their own terms and will indoctrinate their children into what they call the homosexual lifestyle. On the other are parents who believe the curriculum's Lesson 9 is vital for...

    San Francisco -- A San Francisco group billing itself as "the best in LGBT media" is claiming hundreds of public schools in California have signed up to show its films and use accompanying discussion materials. One film features a boy "coming out" by wearing his mother's bikini. Another film incorporates Native American spiritualism to cast LGBT (lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender) persons as "two-spirit" people. The films and school materials are being distributed by Youth in Motion, a partnership between Frameline and Gay-Straight Alliance Network. YIM can be accessed here (warning: may contain offensive content). The films are accompanied by...

    SNIPPET: "Since 9/11, the general focus on prison radicalism in the media and in government has been on the process of certifying imams and literature available to inmates. Fully understanding the impact of this phenomenon, however, requires a historical look back at Islam in prison. The seeds of jihad were planted in the prison soil by men like Warith Deen Umar long before we were attacked in 2001. Having spent 26 years working in New York 's Department of Correctional Services, I have witnessed this process of radicalization first-hand. Sometimes it was monitored; sometimes a recruitment cell was infiltrated. As...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 10, 2009 July was a boom month for military recruiting, with more than 15,000 young men and women entering the active-duty force, defense officials reported today. July recruiting and retention numbers released today show across-the-board successes, with a new high school graduation class among the recruitment-age population seeking career opportunities. In tougher economic times, youth are simply more willing to discuss options with recruiters, said Bill Carr, deputy undersecretary of defense for military personnel policy. And when they learn the facts, they see the advantages. All four services met or exceeded their July active-duty recruiting goals, officials...

    EXCLUSIVE: A 23-year-old pre-med student who "got caught up with friends who were pulling him" toward homosexuality is well and undergoing Christian counseling, his family says. But a gay activist who created a Web site to locate the "missing" man says Bryce Faulkner's silence speaks volumes, claiming that the young man's religious parents are controlling his every move in an effort to "cure" him of his homosexuality. Debra Faulkner, of El Dorado, Ark., denied the Web site's reports that her son was forced against his will to undergo reparative therapy for homosexuality at Exodus International, a nonprofit Christian organization that...
