The victim, Tariq Abu Khdeir, is reportedly a US citizen who was hurling rocks with a slingshot at police. Khdeir goes to school in Florida. The edited footage was released by the Palestinians and widely reported around the world.

    The whole world’s eyes are on the far east, wondering how a Boeing 777 can just disappear without a trace. Malaysia Air Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur at 12:43am this past Saturday morning and has yet to be located. Flying is the safest mode of transportation that exists today, so the disappearance of an airplane like this is really sobering. I heard the following story firsthand from the travel agent involved. He is an avid DansDeals follower that I’m friends with. He sent me the unedited exchange that follows and I made the necessary edits to protect the...

    Dear Friend, As our campaign has gained momentum, our opponents have gotten more and more desperate. But now they’ve stooped to a new low by attacking my family, my education, and my personal story – playing politics with the journey that has been my life. Mine is a story about a teenage single mother who struggled to keep her young family afloat. It’s a story about a young woman who was given a precious opportunity to work her way up in the world. It’s a story about resiliency, and sacrifice, and perseverance. And you’re damn right it’s a true story.

    In the First Book of Samuel which we are reading now in daily Mass, we see are rather stunning portrait of poor parenting and poor priestly leadership in the person of of High Priest of the Sanctuary at Shiloh, Eli. Consider this line from the Scriptures: Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD where the ark of God was. The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, “Here I am.” Samuel ran to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called me.”“I did not call you,” Eli said. “Go back to sleep.” …..At that time Samuel was not familiar...

    David Horowitz, author of The Black Book of the American Left and the founder and president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, has spoken at length about how he was raised by “card-carrying communists” who always “described themselves as progressives.” He followed in their footsteps, becoming one of the founders of the New Left in 1960′s, which he described as an organization “formed by children of communists who wanted to get away from the taint that Stalin had put on (communism), and revive the vision.” So what made the born-and-raised communist become the staunch conservative and defender of American liberties...

    Pilgrim’s Progress Published in NWFDaily News Nov 13 2011 Published again in NWFDaily News as "The True Story" Nov 28, 2013 As the story goes the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in the winter of 1620. Indians taught them how to fish, hunt, and plant corn, bringing forth an abundant harvest giving rise to the first Thanksgiving. That however was not quite true. Indians did indeed help the colonists, but harvests weren’t bountiful and many died of starvation and disease. The problem lay in the Mayflower Compact, which dictated a form of government whereupon property was communally owned and cultivated...

    Writing about the Black Panthers and gun rights, David Frum begins well — which is to say, with a quotation from me — but quickly reverts to First Order Frummery. ”The purpose of having citizens armed with paramilitary weapons is to allow them to engage in paramilitary actions.” That sentence is quoted not from the Black Panther manifesto, but from an article published just a few weeks ago in National Review by Kevin Williamson. Before 1965, it would have occurred to precisely nobody that the Second Amendment guaranteed the right to organize private armies independent of the state. The only...

    "When I think about what we've done well and what we haven't done well," the president said, "the mistake of my first term - couple of years - was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that's important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times." Mr. Obama acknowledged the dissonance between others' perception of his strength as an expert orator, and his own. "It's funny - when I ran, everybody said,...

    Once upon a time, there was a mirror. And the mirror was bright, and polished, and pure, without any flaw; and it was said the the mirror would return the very image of its beholder without distortion. And it happened, by chance or malfeasance, that the mirror fell, and was shattered: and it was broken, sparkling, into countless shards scattered throughout the earth. And the fate of these shards as they were scattered differed one from another. Some indeed retained their brilliance, such that they sparkled like a rainbow in the sun, but all their powers to return an image...

Walsh wanted to give Weiner the “benefit of the doubt” with all of his explanations, yet Matthews wasn’t buying Weiner’s changing stories about his “brief encounter” with a “suspicious package.” Matthews was amazed that Weiner couldn’t affirmatively say that he never took...

    A CNN report on a three-year-old Gaza girl suffering from a disease caused by kidney failure has the makings of a great human interest story. However, the network turned it into an article that is uncomplimentary to Israel and ignores Palestinian Authority indifference. The girl from Gaza is Aya abu Mouwais. The CNN report effectively creates deserved sympathy for her, beginning with the description, “The second she opens her eyes she starts crying. The 3-year-old is in pain every waking moment and has been for two years. “She is suffering from oxalosis, a condition which occurs when the kidneys fail....

The issue died down when Sestak claimed, but which Clinton never addressed publicly, that the offer was a trial balloon that came from the former President and...
