    SAN DIEGO (CBS/AP) — One of three suspects charged with murdering a Marine’s wife said she strangled Brittany Killgore, fearing he woman would upend a kinky sex ring by seducing her “Master,” according to search warrants unsealed Wednesday.

A judge ordered the warrants unsealed at the request of news organizations including The Associated Press. Jessica Lopez wrote in a seven-page letter that she believed Killgore was trying to come between her, Louis Ray Perez...

    Yes, there is a Huma Abedin angle to this story but a certain Muslim Congressman seems to be in the middle of digging himself a bit of a hole. On July 12th, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Muslim-MN) sent a two-page letter to the five congressmen who sent five separate letters to five separate Inspectors General on June 13th. The June 13th letters raised serious concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration inside the U.S. Government. Among the concerns raised with the OIG at the State Department are the familial connections of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide – Huma Abedin – to the Muslim Brotherhood....

"However, to undertake this jihadi approach you must agree to be sodomized for a while to widen your anus so it can hold the explosives," al-Dema al-Qasab tells...

    When Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States” we could not have anticipated the extreme transformations he would seek. The evidence is rolling in that he is determined to transform America into a totally secular land where religion is permitted only within the walls of a church, but is banned in every public place, public gathering and public school. Obama tipped us off to his animosity to religious Americans when, campaigning in San Francisco in 2008, he insulted religious people in small towns. He said, they “get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people...

    A coalition of African-American pastors is calling on blacks to boycott President Barack Obama and sign a petition demanding that the administration withdraw support for gay marriage. The group, the 1,300-member Coalition of African-American Pastors, says it was snubbed by Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder when it demanded a meeting to discuss same-sex unions. The group had requested the meeting last month. “By embracing gay marriage, President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path,” Rev. William Owens, president of the Memphis-based coalition, said on Friday, The Washington Examiner reports. “Some things are bigger than the next election.”...

Media sites are reporting that Holmes is leaving Cruise because he planned to indoctrinate their young daughter, Suri, and send her to a camp for young Scientologists. The church sent out an email instructing members on how to "stand up for their religion" and instruct sites like Microsoft and Google to take down anti-Scientology content. Marty Rathbun, a former Scientologist who now blogs against the religion, posted the email. It's from the Office of Special Affairs, which...

Saleha Abedin, Weiner’s mother-in-law, is not only a leader of the Muslim Sisterhood but she has endorsed the mission of the International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child (IICWC), which includes the acceptance of marital rape. This became apparent when her name appeared on the list of participants of the Islamic Conference for The Islamic Uprising....

Lachlan Murdoch was assiduously courted by the Hollywood star in 1999 while they were both living in Australia, according to the Daily Beast.

But, unlike the original movie, this time the heavenly destroyer is much smaller, and it's headed for Washington, D.C. Scientists determine that it will not break up, but will hit intact right in the space between the White House, the Capitol, and the Supreme Court, and a mere stone’s throw from The Federal Reserve and other key centers of power. It is estimated that the impact will obliterate everything...

    Whoah. Saudi Arabia has decided to allow female athletes to compete in the Olympics for the first time in history. The move ends speculation that the country might have faced banishment from the London Olympics for gender discrimination. The only female competitor currently up to Olympic standards is show jumper Dalma Rushdi Malhas, said officials. But others may end up competing, and all will be dressed to "preserve their dignity," they added. That likely means modest, loose-fitting clothing and a "sports hijab" covering competitors' hair, but not their face, reports the BBC. It's huge step for the nation, where the...

    It was encouraging to see five sitting US Congressmen – led by Rep. Michele Bachmann – send a letter to the Office of the Inspector General at the State Department recently; it made reference to the familial relationships Huma Abedin – Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff and closest advisor – has to the Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin has much fewer than six degrees of separation (1 or 2 depending on your interpretation) from Egypt’s newly elected Muslim Brotherhood president – Mohammed Mursi. One year ago, when Walid discovered the names of 63 leaders who make up the Muslim Sisterhood –...

    Four in 10 Americans do not know that Mitt Romney is a Mormon. PRINCETON, NJ -- Eighteen percent of Americans say they would not vote for a well-qualified presidential candidate who happens to be a Mormon, virtually the same as the 17% who held this attitude in 1967... The exact percentage of Americans who resist the idea of voting for a Mormon has varied slightly over the eight times Gallup has asked the question, typically when a Mormon was running for president, including George Romney (1968 campaign), Orrin Hatch (2000 campaign), and Mitt Romney (2008 and 2012 campaigns). The percentage...

    The West Coast will see an ocean several inches higher in coming decades, with most of California expected to get sea levels a half foot higher by 2030, according a report released Friday. The study by the National Research Council gives planners their best look yet at how melting ice sheets and warming oceans associated with climate change will raise sea levels along the country's Pacific coast. It is generally consistent with earlier global projections, but takes a closer look at California, Oregon and Washington. Although the 6 inches expected for California by 2030 seem minor, the report estimated that...
