  • ‘Jihad John’: Rap Song Lyrics Provide Chilling Clues Into His Rage (ISIS Beheader)

    BEFORE he was named as a key suspect in the brutal beheading of two western journalists, the man who has become known as Jihad John was an aspiring rapper with a dark message. Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, who released music videos under the name L Jinny and even had a few songs played on BBC radio, has gained notoriety for darker reasons other than his music. The British man has gained worldwide attention after he was named as the chief suspect in the gruesome beheading of American journalist James Foley. Police and intelligence officials told Britain’s Sunday Times that “MI5 and...

    C’mon. In the new America, you’re not really an adult until you’re 26. Maybe longer, depending on the next unilateral executive rule change.This case had to end this way, didn’t it? Rachel Canning, a senior at Morris Catholic High School, went to court to force her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, to pay her child support, her private school tuition, medical and related bills, college expenses and legal fees. Canning is an honor student and athlete, but her parents have stopped paying her bills because, they say, she would not obey their rules…Her parents countered that she voluntarily left home...

    The meanstream media has been all atwitter this week over the spat between the Cheney sisters – Liz, a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming, and her lesbian sister Mary – regarding same-sex marriage. Actually, you can't even call this a spat, since only one of the two sisters is bickering with the other in this little family war. And the one doing the sniping here is not the heterosexual, happily-married, Christian sister. The one who is lobbing the grenades here is her perpetually aggrieved, sexually-confused, gay-activist sibling. I'm not sure what you call it when one sister is...

But, I mean, this is serious stuff. The president of the United States has opened up the jails. The president of the United States, because of budget cuts which have not happened yet, has released 500 or so illegal immigrants, and, by definition, of law, they are criminals. We mentioned this late in the program yesterday. Hundreds of illegal alien criminals have been released from illegal alien jail. Janet "Big Sis" Napolitano says that because...

A picture snapped by Sean Leonard's brother paints a different picture of the foul ball incident at Wednesday night's Rangers game. "If this picture was the only picture that was shown online and on the Internet, people would say, 'Oh, he's got a ball,'" Leonard said. Instead, a viral video from YES Network spread across social media sites, talk radio and news stations drew all of the...

    President Obama went to Las Vegas today. (How many people do you think have already made the joke ‘a little less conversation, a little more action please’?) While out there Obama managed to smooth over the recent rough relations with the city and held a town hall where he discussed, among other things, the recent extreme weather conditions across the country. No matter what some parts of the conservative party would have you believe, says Obama, climate change is real. His remarks and video below.

    National Review ^ | February 6, 2009 | Rich Lowry
    Barack Obama, a reputed master of the persuasive art, has settled on his central argument for the stimulus bill: I won. That Obama is reduced to this crude appeal is a symptom of the intellectual collapse of the case for his stimulus bill, a congressional spendfest untethered from its stated goal of providing a rapid “jolt” to the economy. As far as political arguments go, “I won” has its power—provided it’s made on behalf of an agenda ratified by the American electorate. But Obama didn’t campaign on a sprawling, nearly $1 trillion new spending plan. If he had pledged in...

    He's only been in office for three days, and President Obama is already behaving like Veruca Salt in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. About all that's left is for him to sing “Don't Care How, I Want It Now” and then plummet down the bad egg chute to the furnace. He apparently thinks that both Republicans and the media should both unquestioningly bend over and kiss his behind, unaware that the latter already has been doing so for over two years. As the cameraman in the first quote shows, a good many of the mainstream media still have their...

    First, let's dispense with the thundering denial that just came rolling down from Mount St. Miley: The rumor that Hannah Montana is considering legal emancipation from her parents is, in the words of a Cyrus publicist responding to my inquiry, "completely false." However, if Miley Cyrus did want legal sundering from Billy Ray and What's Her Name—essentially freeing herself from her parents and achieving an early adulthood—the teen sensation would be the latest in a long line of famous child performers to do so. In fact there are plenty of names you probably know very well ...

"I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute," Hilton said during the call, according to an account posted by Walters on ABC's Web site.

    She was relaxing in the Dazzle beauty salon awaiting a hot stone body scrub when she got the call. It was obviously something important or her personal assistant would not have risked invoking her volcanic temper by passing her the mobile phone mid-treatment. Indeed it was. On the end of the line was a lawyer telling her that Saddam Hussein had lost his appeal and would hang by the end of the week. And the tall, slim woman who paled as she received this news was the tyrant's redoubtable eldest daughter Raghad. There was much arm-waving, cursing and shrieking. But...

    What's The Scoop: Wide receiver Terrell Owens rested his sore left hamstring again Friday morning after missing his first practice of training camp Thursday. Dressed in sweats and a baseball cap, Owens watched while the Cowboys practiced for two hours on a soggy River Ridge Complex field. Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells said he didn't know when Owens would return to practice, but he wasn't concerned about his star receiver's hamstring. And Owens said Thursday he and the team are simply being cautious. "I don't know that he has an injury," Parcells said. "I think he's worried about it. That's...

    Poor Patrick. It's not what people would be expected to say about a rich kid who sailed into a House seat on the strength of his family name. But in Washington, where politics is both profession and blood sport, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) has long been seen as a figure of sadness. "Most people feel sorry for him because he's obviously troubled," said a veteran Democratic consultant after the 38-year-old Kennedy announced his return to drug rehab after crashing his car on Capitol Hill. "He walks around as though he has the weight of the world on his shoulders," the...

But after she moved into a friend’s basement in Bellerose Terrace in March, Guevara did something her mother didn’t see coming: She sued her parents for child support in Nassau Family Court....

He's too small for the chair he swivels in, and is thin and awkward after the classic model of the thin and awkward fourteen-year-old boy. He is mostly, but not completely, friendless, and will transfer to a new school in the fall, where a classmate will later remember him as "invisible." His parents have begun to clash more intensely than ever, casting a weary pall over the household. Obsessed with hip-hop, he feels spectacularly out of place amid the...
