    While the media continues to excoriate Donald Trump for allegedly making insensitive remarks about former Ms. Universe Alicia Machado 20-years ago, they continue to conveniently ignore Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s troubling past. In particular, the media is ignoring a 1975 case in which Clinton served as defense attorney to a 41-year old child rapist. As a 27-year old Arkansas lawyer, Hillary Rodham took the case of Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year old man accused of raping 12-year old Kathy Shelton.

    A Swazi Member of Parliament has urged the government to hike taxes on traditional healers and soothsayers to help solve a funding crisis in Africa's last absolute monarchy. ... Swaziland's budget deficit ballooned to 15 percent of its annual economic output in 2010 but the government managed to keep itself afloat by running through central bank reserves and delaying payment of wages to civil servants. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) declined to launch a bailout because of reluctance by King Mswati III, who has at least a dozen wives and a personal fortune estimated at $200 million, to cut royal...

    It remains unclear whether President Barack Obama's lies about attacks on U.S. embassies will cost him re-election. One thing is certain, however: whatever ambitions Secretary of State Hillary Clinton once held to run for president in 2016 have been damaged beyond repair. Obama was literally asleep when the proverbial "3 a.m. call" came, but Clinton--who bears responsibility for embassy security--was asleep on the job for weeks. Clinton's response--"How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?--bears the same naďveté for which she once mocked her Democratic rival in debates and campaign...

    ST. ROBERT, Mo.—Claire McCaskill began a sparsely attended campaign event here Thursday with this quip: "I don't know if you noticed, but my campaign has been really boring lately." The ironic line was one of the few references the Democratic senator made to the political firestorm that erupted after her opponent, U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, used the term "legitimate rape" during a TV interview Sunday. Rather than beat Mr. Akin over the head, Ms. McCaskill appears to have decided to let the wrecking ball he set in motion swing all by itself. And unlike the Republican establishment, which has called...

    The Salem witch tragedy of 1692 took less than two years to play out. Yet 300 years later, explanations for how and why it happened are still coming. One theory recently gaining exposure thanks to bloggers comes from a 2004 college thesis that places the blame on something we think of as a strictly modern phenomenon: climate change. Proposed in a Harvard thesis, the paper by economist Emily Oster has earned attention due to the modern swirl of controversy surrounding the possibility that human interaction has altered world temperatures. Currently an assistant professor at the University of Chicago, Oster linked...

    This is Bristol ^ | Saturday, April 07, 2012
    A MAN who calls himself the King of all Witches wants to open an occult centre in Bristol. Magus Lynius Shadee says he is in the final stages of securing a venue in Park Row for his centre. The 66-year-old wants it to be the start of a franchise, and making an unusual comparison he told the Evening Post: "It will be a bit like McDonalds, but we encourage vegetarianism." Mr Shadee, who divides his time between homes in France and London, calls himself a practising occultist. He says his centre will offer services including ritual work, witchcraft and exorcisms....
