    Prominent leaders of major Jewish and Christian global organizations announced a "historic" joint initiative on Monday, calling on world leaders to take urgent, determined actions to halt the brutal persecution of Christians in the Middle East in a Jerusalem press conference. Video The joint initiative was unveiled at the Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) celebration sponsored by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, with some 4,500 Christians from 80 nations in attendance. The alarming situation for Christian minorities across the Middle East continues to worsen even while world leaders have largely ignored this on-going human rights tragedy, laments a letter recently sent...

    Washington (AFP) - US Secretary of State John Kerry Monday sounded the alarm on the perils facing the world's oceans, calling for a global strategy to save the planet's life-giving seas. "Let's develop a plan" to combat over-fishing, climate change and pollution, Kerry urged as he opened a ground-breaking two-day conference of world leaders, scientists and industry captains. "Stewardship of our ocean is not a one-person event... it's a universal requirement," Kerry insisted. "We as human beings share nothing so completely as the ocean that covers nearly three-quarters of our planet," the top US diplomat said, adding that "each of...

    HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Veterans are rallying around a local bar whose owners say they have been ordered to removed a sign that salutes their service. “Thank a veteran for your freedom!” says a large sign perched above Johnny’s Booze and Pool. Vets love it and make up a significant part of the establishment’s clientele. “I love this place. The sign gives me the pride back that I lost … I struggled a lot when I first came back,” an Army vet told CBS2′s Stacey Butler. But someone complained to the city about the sign, and now the bar’s owners...

    ...First, and most important, is focusing on the economic concerns of working-and middle-class Americans, many of whom now regard the Republican Party as beholden to millionaires and billionaires and as wholly out of touch with ordinary Americans. This is a durable impressionwitness Bill Clintons effective deployment of it more than 20 years ago and its continued resonance during the 2012 campaign when Team Obama portrayed Mitt Romney as a plutocrat who delighted in shutting down factories and moving jobs overseas. Sure enough, in November exit polls, 81 percent of voters said that Barack Obama cared for people like me; a...

    United States Marines are being told to preserve ammunition and gasoline as a deal softening the impact of automatic spending cuts continues to elude leaders in Washington. Marine Corps Commandant James Amos urged personnel in a video posted online Friday to "save every round, every gallon of gas," and to "take every single aspect or opportunity in training to get the most bang for the buck," a reminder of the cuts' immediate effect on the U.S. military.

    Firearm prohibitionists love to use tragedy to leverage their agenda. So, its important for gun rights advocates to stand their ground and fire back (proverbially) whenever this happens. Last week I posted a graphic on Facebook claiming the average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 18.25, and the average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by civilians is 2.2. I based it on 10 shootings I found listed on some timeline somewhere. I honestly dont even remember where. I presented the case studies in a blog post on the Silver...

    TAMPA (FOX 13) - Angela Agrippa is an emotional wreck. "This home just means everything to us, it's just going to be so hard to walk away," she said. That is her worst nightmare, but it could happen in just four months. Agrippa bought her home back in 1991 for $61,000. She took a couple of home loans out on it over the years. But the sale of a rental property helped her pay off much of those loans years later.

    Every year, about two million Indonesians leave Islam for Christianity. Other Indonesians leave Islam and adopt other religions or become agnostics or atheists. This trend is likely to continue in Indonesia, and all across the Islamic world. I do believe many of the larger Islamic countries will officially leave Islam by 2030. Islam is a barbaric religion that imposes its will on the individual. People may take that for a while. Then rebellion comes. Then revolutions that dig out the stump of the tree of Islam from its roots, and cut that stump into minute pieces. It will never see...

    Coyotes are champions of change and have evolved in clever ways to take advantage of a human-dominated landscape Near the dawn of time, the story goes, Coyote saved the creatures of Earth. According to the mythology of Idaho's Nez Perce people, the monster Kamiah had stalked into the region and was gobbling up the animals one by one. The crafty Coyote evaded Kamiah but didn't want to lose his friends, so he let himself be swallowed. From inside the beast, Coyote severed Kamiah's heart and freed his fellow animals. Then he chopped up Kamiah and threw the pieces to the...

    Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- Quick thinking and a one-hand opening knife saved a construction worker recently, as posted by Seth on BladeForums.com. Below is his post (edited for readability) I work in construction, mostly in copper fabrication and seamless gutters, but also a bit of everything. Last Friday, I was helping a co-worker do some roofing, We were installing Permaclad sheets, a very typical roof setup here, galvanized 26 guage steel sheets with a U-panel design. The roof was somewhat steep, but it was dry and we had decent traction. The sheets were 18 feet long x 3 feet wide. I...

    [W]HILE Greece has been criticized for just about everything, especially about going on a debt binge, to be fair, that is the kettle calling the pot black. Lets be honest. ALL Western governments have been doing the same thing. Greece is merely the PRELUDE to the Decline & Fall of Western Society. This is always about politicians and their inability to manage anything whatsoever. It always comes down to their personal self-interests and until we reform our political systems BARRING reelection of ALL politicians to prevent a political class from rising, then politicians will always say: Vote for me and...

But she's passionate about securing full representation in Congress for District of Columbia residents. That's what led Panettiere to the John A.

    With the Obama economy limping along thanks in part to the Administrations policies in favor of extreme dollar weakness, theres growing speculation as to his re-election chances in 2012. Will a difficult economic situation that includes high levels of unemployment make Obama a one-term president? History says no given the power of incumbency. Added to that, another popular narrative of late points to an Obama victory owing to the supposed economic illiteracy of the electorate, along with a media that will provide our weakened president with positive media coverage no matter the state of the economy. Of course the problem...

    The most striking thing about the Save our NHS protests is how small they are.[Snip]Its an institution whose staff are now openly described by government officials as agents of persuasion (formerly known as agents of the state) who should seek to reshape peoples lifestyles. Its an institution whose contempt for Joe Public is perfectly demonstrated in those ubiquitous posters in hospital waiting rooms warning us not to beat up nurses or doctors. Its an institution that feverishly looks upon everyday human relationships as dirty and degraded, where midwives are encouraged to interrogate pregnant women over whether they are being domestically

    Sixty years ago in February I came to the United States. I was classified as a "displaced person" from World War II with no identity or knowledge of when, where or to whom I was born, an orphan who had miraculously survived on the streets of a war ravaged city somewhere in central Europe. On that bitterly cold overcast morning as I stood, alone at the railing of a ship, staring at the iconic image of the Statue of Liberty, I found myself arriving in a strange country itself coming face to face with a new and unwelcome role as...

    House Science Committee Republicans are asking President Obama to ensure that records associated with outgoing top White House climate and energy adviser Carol Browner are preserved. Ms. Browner and her staff are central figures in many decisions and issues of interest to the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, according to a letter that Chairman Ralph Hall (R-Texas) and three other senior Republicans on the panel sent late Tuesday. The Republicans are asking for all documents which they say is to be construed in the broadest sense associated with the White House Office of Energy and

Amanpour said, "We talk about symbolism, what the president needs to do. Politically he's moved to the center." Typical. He hasn't, Christiane, he won't move to the center. Anyway, "He's heeded the call of the people, so to speak," she says. "But when it comes to real solutions how do you kick-start and how do you make a dent in that 9.4% unemployment figure?" And this is what George Will said to Christiane Amanpour. WILL: I had lunch this...
