    A dear church friend (and veteran) was in Washington this week on an Honor Flight to see the WWII memorial and other sights and had a mini-stroke, a second one in his long life. Praise God his escort was a EMT, and they were minutes away from a very good hospital, but prayers, please. He will have to do speech therapy but all limbs are good. I know this will shake him because he has recently recovered from the last one, but again, praise God that he was in exactly the right place to have it treated immediately.
  • Israel Accepts UN Request for Six-Hour 'Humanitarian Ceasefire'

    07/16/2014 12:19:09 PM PDT · by Nachum · 16 replies
    INN ^ | 7/16/14 | Ari Soffer
    Israel has accepted a request by UN envoy Robert Serry to enact a six-hour "humanitarian ceasefire" starting Thursday morning. Serry submitted the request to both the Israeli government and Hamas on Wednesday evening in order to allow humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip; while Israel accepted immediately, Hamas has yet to respond. It comes as efforts continue to broker a more long-term truce after Hamas rejected an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire agreement Tuesday morning, and responded by escalating its rocket fire against Israeli civilians. One Israeli man, 38-year-old father of three Dror Hanin, was killed in a mortar attack near the Erez...

    Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday indicated he would comply with a House GOP subpoena to testify about Benghazi and other questions from the new select committee appointed by House Speaker John Boehner. But in his first comments on the topic since renewed attention to it began in the last week, Kerry batted away the inquiry into the September 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi as a “partisan” effort that won’t bring forward anything that isn’t already known. “I think this sort of speaks for itself, frankly,” Kerry said at a press conference at the State Department...

At the prompting of his longtime girlfriend, he went in to his doctor and his doctor ordered a ct scan. Dad got a call a little later at home to call 911 and get to the hospital as they found he had some bleeding in the brain. He's at the hospital now, he's doing fine. No loss of memory or faculties or anything like that. It's a slow bleed that apparently has been going on for they figure...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 11/25/11 | David S. Cloud
    Washington— The U.S. commander in Afghanistan has prepared a request for more troops to serve as advisors for Afghan military units, a sign that Washington and its allies are trying to speed up the hand-over of combat operations to the Afghans as they prepare to withdraw, U.S. and NATO officials said. The stronger emphasis on training may keep more U.S. troops on bases next year and help reduce U.S. military casualties before presidential elections next November. President Obama's Afghan policy is already an issue. Marine Gen. John R. Allen, who took command in Afghanistan last summer, wants 1,700

Israel denied a request by the United States on Thursday to temporarily freeze settlement construction in order to promote peace talks with the Palestinians. In a meeting with Interior Minister Eli Yishai, US Ambassador Dan Shapiro requested the freeze - a repeated Palestinian precondition for negotiations - in order to bolster political goodwill as the US tries to counter Palestinian efforts to seek full UN membership. Shapiro promised that the United States would veto such efforts regardless of...

    A defense lawyer is calling for calm after death threats have been made against teenagers charged in the death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after she was allegedly bullied by schoolmates. "Not to minimize what happened to Phoebe Prince in any way, but translating this into death threats and public harassment has got to stop," says Colin Keefe, who represents Sharon Chanon Velazquez, accused of tormenting Prince, who hanged herself on Jan. 14. "It's gotten way out of control," adds Keefe, who says Velazquez has been driven temporarily from her home.

Dunphy, the lawyer for Austin Renaud, asks for the names of any physicians, psychologists or rape counselors Prince saw; any medical and psychological records viewed by the prosecutor; details of any prior allegations of rape or abuse by Prince; and a statement as to whether...

    Since the health care reform push hit its final stretch, numerous sweeteners for lawmakers' districts and states have been found inside the package. Earmark requests are made outside of the health care bill, making them a bit more difficult to link to any vote-trading. But it is precisely that kind of tricky-to-catch deal-making that Republican Sen. Tom Coburn said he and other GOP senators would be monitoring for months to come.

    PHOENIX -- A handful of taxpayers in a small community north of Wickenburg, Arizona are being targeted by the local school district in a lawsuit that asks a judge to declare they have no right to request public records, sue the district, or complain to outside agencies. The Congress Elementary School District claims that past efforts by these residents to obtain documents such as minutes of board meetings and spending reports amount to harassment that should not have to be tolerated. But Jean Warren, one of the four defendants named in the lawsuit filed January 28, 2010, said the complaint...

    11/24/2009 - SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. (AFNS) -- Capt. Marian Collins' third deployment to Afghanistan in October became her most rewarding one. Not because of any medal earned or battle fought, but because she reached out to an Afghan youth whose gratitude gave added meaning to her team's mission. Captain Collins, the assistant director of operations for the 571st Global Mobility Squadron at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., was deployed to Shindand, Afghanistan, to restore a 1960s-era airfield to accommodate air mobility operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. While deployed, her desire to help others inspired her to...

    Is this any way to run a war? Critics are lambasting President Obama for hitting the pause button on the war in Afghanistan, making U.S. commanders seeking thousands more troops there wait for a decision as he tries to get the "strategy right first." "The commander in chief is the commander in chief, period," said retired Army Lt. Col. James Carafano, a senior fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation. "You can't fight a war from Washington D.C. There's only one way this works: You have trust and confidence in the leaders on the ground, or you don't." Some critics are...

    Greetings FReeper prayer warriors; Over the last many years, I have on several occasions posted a prayer request for one of Lake Havasu's Finest, Clint Campbell. It seems that the Lord, every 18 months to 2 years, sends Clint another challenge to overcome. I talked to Clint earlier this evening, and found out that he had a medical procedure the other day, and they did a biopsy on a growth on his kidney. He managed to overcome his other bouts with cancer, and if this biopsy comes back positive I am confident, that with your prayers, and God's grace and...

    As many of you know Maria Bush's husband has been fighting terminal cancer. It now appears death is eminent. He is in the hospital in a hospice ward and Maria and her children are with him. If he should pass today it would be most appropriate as he is and has always been a great patriot and lover of freedom and the USA. Please keep the family in your prayers, they are couragously dealing with this but are still devastated by the pending loss of their husband and father.

The actor, in a transcript provided to The Associated Press by "The View," said that he also wanted to quit "30 Rock" so the sitcom and the hundreds who work on it wouldn't "be hurt...
