The unit, named after its leader Oscar Dirlewanger, comprised of criminals, the...

    He was a soldier in one of the most fanatical divisions in Hitler's war machine. As a member of the SS, Heinrich Steinmeyer expected little mercy as he surrendered to British troops towards the end of the Second World War. But instead, he says he was treated with humanity by both the troops who captured him and the guards at the Scottish prison camp where he was kept until the end of the war. Sixty-five years later, Mr Steinmeyer has pledged to leave his home and life savings of £430,000 to elderly residents in the village of Comrie, Perthshire, as...

    The Provocateur ^ | 07/23/2009 | Mike Volpe
    A reading of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform report on ACORN leaves only one conclusion, ACORN is a criminal enterprise. In fact, the only doubt, according to the committee, that ACORN is not RICO was a debate late in the report whether it is technically an organization. The evidence gathered by the committee is damning. The committee quoted several news sources, "insiders", Marcel Reid, Karen Inman, Anita Moncrief, and the law firm of Harman, Curran, Spielberg, and Eisenberg. HCSE was retained by ACORN as outside legal counsel. Ironically enough, a lot of the most damning evidence came from...

    Following overwhelming House passage last week, the Senate tonight voted 74 to 14 on a procedural move that essentially guarantees a major expansion of a national service corps, a cornerstone of volunteerism that dates back to the era of President Kennedy. It’s akin to a call to arms by President Obama, who has harkened back to those early days to demand giving back by those who voted for him. In fact, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the senior Democrat from Massachusetts whose battle with brain cancer has oft kept him absent from the Senate these days, appeared on the floor to...

    Deported ex-Nazi guard freed by Austria March 22, 2009 JERUSALEM (JTA) -- A former Nazi SS guard was freed by Austria a day after being deported from the United States. Josias Kumpf, 83, of Racine, Wis., could not be put on trial in Austria because the statute of limitations had expired, according to the Austrian justice ministry. The ministry told the United States before Kumpf's extradition that he would be freed since he was younger than 20 at the time of the crimes and because he was never an Austrian citizen, nor were the crimes committed in Austria, Reuters reported....

    An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle. The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read "Abort Obama, not the unborn." Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over. ''I pulled over, knowing I hadn't done anything wrong," Harrison said in a recent phone interview. When the officer asked Harrison if...

    My younger sister has often complained to me that, during their working careers, she and her husband had difficulty making ends meet, financially. In response, I’ve tried to convince her that those who have a little money… or even a lot of money… have a far more difficult problem: i.e., holding onto what they have. No man has done more to prove my point than Bernard Madoff, the head of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities, LLC, a Wall Street investment advisor admired and trusted by some of America’s wealthiest individuals and foundations. No man has done more to destroy the...

    Every year, Iran's Islamic regime devotes an entire week to the glorification of the Basij Resistance Force. This year, Basij Week ended on November 27 with extensive media coverage and a raft of activities, including a high-profile review march by 15,000 Basij members in Tehran. The Basij (Persian for mobilization) is a large and omnipresent paramilitary organization with multifaceted roles, and which acts as the eyes and ears of the Islamic regime. It is present in schools, universities, state and private institutions, factories, and even among tribes. The Basij was formed by order of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in November 1977...

Two-term Rep. Paul Broun of Athens cited a July speech that has circulated on the Internet in which Obama called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.

    For decades, a fairly consistent share of workers -- about 60 percent of women and about 52 percent of men -- have claimed a Social Security check at 62, the earliest age at which most people qualify for benefits. However, collecting Social Security before "full retirement age," which is climbing gradually to age 67, results in a permanent reduction in a person's monthly payout, says the Wall Street Journal. In a study published in June by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, researchers found: Some 48 percent of women and 43 percent of men who turned 62 in...
