    A newly released photo submitted into evidence Monday in the Boston Marathon bombing trial shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaaev standing behind the Richard family, including 8-year-old Martin Richard, the youngest victim, on Boylston Street before the blasts. Tsarnaev can be seen directly behind the tree in the center of the photo. Martin Richard is in the center-front of the photo, standing on the fence in a black jacket, while his father, Bill Richard, looks on over his right shoulder. In the trial on Monday, jurors were shown graphic photos of Martin Richard’s autopsy and heard testimony from the medical examiner who performed...

    It seems that the A&E Duck Dynasty controversy has come to a conclusion. In the aftermath of this dispute, after all the words exchanged have been reviewed, what can we learn? I believe that the public responses surrounding this recent chain of events reveal several observable trends and ideologies about us as a society. Thus, the following theses presented below are based upon what I believe is the trending American ideology and ethos towards scripture, ethics, and what it values. Thesis #1: Society is unable to apply the simple rules of grammar to scripture. In the debated GQ Interview, it...

    What do Samantha Power, Obama’s nominee for UN Ambassador, and Richard Falk, UN Human Rights Council “expert” and Boston terror apologist, have in common? They both champion the United Nations’ human rights credentials and denigrate those of the United States. On Monday in Geneva at the Human Rights Council, Falk will provide a demonstration. Courtesy of the UN’s top human rights body – a body which the Obama administration joined and strongly supports – Falk will be welcomed to the podium to condemn Israel and throw potshots at the United States.

Under court order to cough up the email messages to Chris Horner of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and having turned over a first installment of 2,100 such email messages earlier this week, the Obama administration is making this a case that might challenge the ingenuity of Sherlock Holmes. With Horner’s assistance, my daughter Eliana tries to pierce the fog of administrative war in her NRO column “Lisa Jackson’s gadfly.”

We’re kind of like the invisible people. He doesn’t realize that the service we provide – if it wasn’t for us, it would be a big health issue, us not picking up trash. Get the sledgehammer message?

    WATERLOO, N.Y. The Cayuga Indian's 25-year-old land claim will not get a second look from a federal appeals court. Seneca County Attorney Steven Getman says today's decision by the Second U-S Circuit Court of Appeals is another victory for property owners. The Cayuga Indian Nation of New York and the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma had asked for a rehearing after the court's split decision in June. The decision said the tribe was not entitled to a 248 (m) million land claim judgment awarded by a lower-court jury. Today's decision cited an earlier U-S Supreme Court ruling in a separate case...

    ROCHESTER—A state appeals court has overturned sex abuse charges against an Ontario County man and ordered a new trial. In doing so, the court also admonished the Ontario County District Attorney’s office for improper comments made during trial. In a decision released Friday (April 1), the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, ruled that Richard M. Wildrick’s rights were violated when the Ontario County Court refused to issue subpoenas for the school records of one of his alleged victims, an underage boy. That refusal, the court held, denied Wildrick his right to a fair trial because the prosecution had...

    This past March in Columbus Ohio a disabled 16 year old girl was sexually assulted at  Mifflin High School by a group of boys.  They beat her, stripped her naked, and video taped the incident while others watched as it happened.  This occurred while school was in session in the school's auditorium.  When the girl was finally brought to safety, a school official named Richard Watson did not want to call the authorities because it would attract unwanted media attention.  The father of the disabled girl was not called until a considerable amount of time had passed after the incident was reported.  The principle (Ms Crenshaw) has been fired for...

    Richard Clarke came to speak on the Univ. of Ill. campus, and expressed an interest in winning the war by winning the war of ideas. You can read the Daily Illini pre-coverage here and my news/blog article on the speech itself here. Thoughts on Clarke? Does he have valid points to bring up? Or an alterior motive? He was a decent speaker and it was a packed crowd the overflowed into another room where another packed audience watched the lecture on monitors. He took a few jabs here and there (Fox news and Bush's desire to recreate the blackboard of...

    The inane and bitter Richard Cohen spewed forth a few days ago and -- shockingly -- he wrote of the Democratic movement rustling through the Mideast: '...something momentous is stirring: democracy, freedom, independence. Something. Or, as an Arab acquaintance just e-mailed me from the region, "I can smell the winds of change in the air wherever I go." ...' A gracious and glowing concession to the Reaganesque moves of the administration? Of course not. '...Given what's happening, it's understandable that many eyes have shifted to Washington with a new sense of appreciation. Could it be that the neocons were right...

    The behavior of candidates for political office often reflects what they are seeing in their private polls. That being so, I suspect that the Kerry-Edwards private polls look pretty grim, unlike the public polls which purport to show them running neck-and-neck with the Bush-Cheney ticket. To put it bluntly, both John Kerry and John Edwards are beginning to look more than a little loony. Take for example Kerry's astonishing comparison of terrorists with prostitutes and gamblers. In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, Kerry said: We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are...

    Star cyclist Richard Virenque retires Friday September 24, 2004 By SAMUEL PETREQUIN Associated Press Writer PARIS (AP) French cycling star Richard Virenque retired Friday, ending a career marked by his fierce mountain climbs but tainted by his part in the Tour de France's worst doping scandal. ``I have had some great moments,'' the 34-year-old rider said. ``But from now on I will just be enjoying bike rides with my family.'' Virenque won a record seventh title this year as the Tour's top mountain climber. He captured seven stages in 12 appearances in cycling's premier race and wore the yellow jersey...

    John Kerry calls for the death of Freedom of Speech John Kerry calls on "Unfit for Commmand" publishers Regenry to stop publishing and distributing the book, which charges Kerry lied and distorted the facts while serving in Vietnam in order to gain medals and a quick trip home. Additional calls by Kerry to the various big-name retail book outlets have also been made, where he has asked that the book be 'pulled from the shelves' and removed. No such call for a ban or removal was issued by John Kerry for Michael Moore's movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" which is deeply...

    Covering up? U.S. officials tell us that the FBI is focusing on a single document in its investigation of former White House National Security Adviser Samuel R. Berger. Investigators are trying to determine why Mr. Berger improperly removed a highly classified after-action report by Richard A. Clarke, an aide to Mr. Berger, that was harshly critical of the Clinton administration's response to the so-called millennium terrorist plot to bomb Los Angeles International Airport and other targets in late 1999. Mr. Clarke was the National Security Council staff aide who ended up as a Democratic holdover in the Bush administration. He...

    The Candidate With No Name By Andrew L. Jaffee, July 29, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms ”Defeat Bush – VOTE In 2004!” I’ve seen more bumper-stickers with this platitude than I’ve seen ones that simply state, “Kerry/Edwards 2004.” While my liberal friends rarely mention Kerry and Edwards, they constantly remind me of how much they hate President Bush. This year, the politics of hate rule. The Left doesn’t even have a candidate. They are galvanized mainly by visceral hatred -- a hatred which stands on shaky assumptions, like the lies that Michael Moore sells as truths. In Fahrenheit 9/11, Moore insinuates that...

    SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - State Education Secretary Richard Riordan has apologized for joking that a child's name meant "stupid dirty girl." In a videotaped exchange at the city's central library on Thursday, a girl asked Riordan if he knew that her name meant "Egyptian goddess." Riordan, who apparently believed he'd been asked what her name meant, replied, "It means stupid dirty girl." Some in the room laughed nervously, and the girl again told Riordan the meaning of her name. "Hey, that's nifty," he said.
