  • Osama's Son 'Led Bhutto Death Squad'

    Osama bin Laden's 16-year-old son led a suicide bomb squad sent to kill Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, according to her own claims. Before she was assassinated in December the former prime minister claimed she had been warned that four such death teams would try to kill her. And the naming of bin Laden's teenage son, Hamza, could now strengthen claims that he is being groomed as a future leader of the al Qaeda terror group. In 2001, he appeared in a joint Taliban and al Qaeda video of a militant attack on a Pakistan army camp in South Waziristan,...

  • Strong Warnings from the Founders and Early American Leaders for America

    05/03/2016 8:03:03 PM PDT · by The Ignorant Fisherman · 4 replies
    Dear Friends, One of the most remarkable observations in the study of history is the caution and warnings that are always given by Founders of great civilizations. It seems that those who lay foundations for great civilizations are quite aware of the seeds of pride, selfishness, and contention in human nature which over time usually begin to manifest themselves in society--even good societies. These Founders, realizing the tendency of human nature to degenerate, have always closed their public ministries with solemn warnings of the dire consequences of departing from the lofty ideals they established. Moses gave the children of Israel...

One was spotted near Piedmont, a small town where a twister last May killed several people. The National Weather Service was working to confirm the reports. Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Brown told The Associated Press the storms were fairly weak but still damaged some homes. A tornado that...

    Liberal fascism sounds like an oxymoron or a term for conservatives to insult liberals. Actually, it was coined by a socialist writer, none other than the respected and influential left-winger H.G. Wells, who in 1931 called on fellow progressives to become "liberal fascists" and "enlightened Nazis." Really. His words, indeed, fit a much larger pattern of fusing socialism with fascism: Mussolini was a leading socialist figure who, during World War I, turned away from internationalism in favor of Italian nationalism and called the blend Fascism. Likewise, Hitler headed the National Socialist German Workers Party. These facts jar because they...

    WASHINGTON - A south Texas rancher, Texas sheriffs, an Arizona district attorney and other law enforcement representatives urged Senate committee members Wednesday to heed their warning: The porous southern border of the United States is a national security risk. Witnesses told Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, chairman of the Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship subcommittee, at a hearing on border violence that without cooperation from Mexico, combined with federal support from the United States, the situation at the border will continue to deteriorate. Cornyn focused the hearing on recent reports of Mexican military incursions into the United States, increasing border violence...

    DETROIT - A warning that consumers shouldn't use a heat gun that produces temperatures of 1,000 degrees as a hairdryer has won an anti-lawsuit group's award for the wackiest label of the year. The Wacky Warning Label Contest, in its ninth year, is conducted by Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch as part of an effort to show the effects of lawsuits on warning labels. "When judges see it as their job to dismiss cases that are rooted in frivolous theories, we'll see fewer wacky labels and more fairness in the courts," said Robert B. Dorigo Jones, the group's president. The $500...

    NEW ORLEANS - Engineers responsible for monitoring the levees that failed following Hurricane Katrina were never told that canal water had been pooling in yards beside a flood wall months before the storm, an Army Corps of Engineers manager said Friday. Residents living along the 17th Street Canal told The Times-Picayune newspaper in an article published Friday that they had complained to the city Sewerage and Water Board nearly a year ago about water pooling in their yards. City workers came out and concluded environmental testing was needed to determine if water was seeping through the levee, said Beth LeBlanc,...

    Officials with the National Weather Service told House lawmakers Thursday they did everything within their power to inform federal, state and local authorities of the severity of Hurricane Katrina in the days before the storm hit, including issuing a chilling warning and making unprecedented telephone calls to the governors of Louisiana and Mississippi and the mayor of New Orleans. By Aug. 26 at 10 p.m. Central Daylight Time, the Weather Service had determined the hurricane would be a Category 4 when it made landfall, and that it was headed to southeast Louisiana and New Orleans. The forecast turned out to...

    25 Warnings in Ten Years to the United States - Bill Koenig In John McTernan's and my book, "Israel: The Blessing or the Curse," we showed how the Lord over ten years has given the United States 21 warnings the same day the U.S. has pressed Israel to give up their land. There were record-setting earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, tropical storms, floods and stock market corrections. I have also included 4 more since President George W. Bush took a more active role in the Middle East talks. October 30, 1991 - President George W. Bush and Russian President Michael Gorbachev begin...

    WHETHER it is to do the dishes, clean the car or vacuum the living room, men now have an answer to their wife's war cry that they never listen: it's not me, darling, it's my brain. Scientists now have discovered that women's voices are more difficult for men to listen to, and process information from, than the voices of other men. Researchers at the University of Sheffield tracked activity in the brains of 12 men while playing recordings of different voices. The results showed that there were startling differences in the way the brain responded to male and female sounds....

    ROSELAND -- Battles over zoning and permits appear to be a common problem lately in the small town of Roseland. But residents now have a complaint that's not just about small town ordinances. It's about the nation's Constitution and its First Amendment, freedom of speech. This week, some residents have pitched signs in their yards, urging the two married members of the three-person Town Council, David and Dorothy Snyder, to resign. In return, residents have received warnings or tickets from the town, telling them they are breaking the law. "We don't have freedom of speech. We can't say what we...
