  • California governor denies parole for Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten

    California Gov. Jerry Brown denied parole for the youngest follower of murderous cult leader Charles Manson who is serving a life sentence for killing a wealthy grocer and his wife more than 40 years ago. Brown overturned the recommendation of a parole board on Friday that found Leslie Van Houten was no-longer the violent young woman who committed a gruesome murder and was now fit for release. She has completed college degrees and been a model inmate. The Democratic governor acknowledged her success in prison and her youth at the time of the murders. However, he wrote in his decision...

    Many Americans are campaigning for a raise in the minimum wage. Even more Americans are struggling just to find jobs at any wage.Yup -- those two news items are related.While trying to present a case for the Massachusetts state legislature to approve a program that provides summer jobs to teens at non-profits and government agencies, an editorial at the Boston Globe accidentally explained why artificially imposed minimum wages kill job opportunities.I don’t think the Globe even realized it, either: The program provides money for YouthWorks, which pays the wages of 4,400 low-income teens in eligible cities who work for nonprofits...

    I have always been a pistol shooter. Even the first time I was out on the range, I loved everything about shooting, from the smell of the gunpowder to the sound the steel makes when it is hit by a bullet. I think that’s what got me hooked on competitive shooting. I was 9 years old when I attended and watched my first Glock Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) match in Columbia, S.C., and my whole family attended to see what it was all about. MY FIRST USPSA MATCH was the North Carolina Sectional in 2012. I had never even been...

    White teenage unemployment is about 14 percent. That for black teenagers is about 30 percent. The labor force participation rate for white teens is 37 percent, and that for black teens is 25 percent. Many years ago, in 1948, the figures were exactly the opposite. The unemployment rate of black 16-year-old and 17-year-old males was 9.4 percent, while that of whites was 10.2 percent. Up until the late 1950s, black teens, as well as black adults, were more active in the labor market than their white counterparts. I will return to these facts after I point out some elitist arrogance...

Last week the City of San Francisco passed an amendment (9-2) to lower the voting age to 16 years old. It will appear on this November’s ballot in an effort to expand voting “rights”. It may be tempting to laugh it off as “wacky San Francisco”, but advocates intend to replicate this around the country, and worldwide. Their wishes may be soon granted: Council members...

    A new poll has found that youth in Israel are increasingly right-wing in their political opinions, and are overwhelmingly Zionist and loyal to their country. The survey, conducted by the New Wave Research institute for Israel Hayom and published in part on Wednesday, asked 11th and 12th graders to define their political position. A full 59% defined themselves as right-wing, while another 23% said they were centrist, and only 13% identified as leftist. Another 5% said they have no position. A whopping 82% said there is no chance of reaching a deal of some sort with the Palestinian Arabs, indicating...

    “I’m not a superpredator!” Ashley Williams, a young Black Lives Matter protester told Democratic presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton—her confidence belied by a slight quiver in her voice. Even when heckled by the mostly white crowd at a $500-per-plate campaign fundraiser dinner in conservative South Carolina, Williams held her ground. She faced down an evasive Clinton, demanding an explanation for racist remarks the former First Lady made in 1996, where she referred to inner-city, black youth as “super-predators” with “no conscience” and “no empathy.” “We need to bring them to heel” she explained.

According to reports, the officers were injured as they responded to a fight around 3 p.m. near Allen High School in Allentown. Violent video of the brawl and the attack on the officers was posted to Facebook. Authorities say three students have been arrested so far, the Morning Call reported.

    There are numerous factors that contribute to Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israel, including the history of the region, the Islamic religion, and the difficulties faced by Palestinians because of what they view as “the occupation.” But there is another important aspect of the conflict that cannot be ignored, namely, demographics. The inhabitants of the West Bank and Gaza Strip are disproportionately young, and a youth-heavy population is one that is typically marked by violence, rebellion, and social upheaval. In this case, most of the anger is directed towards Israel, making for a situation that could explode at any moment. Using...

    I have been Youth Leader at my church (Baptist) for the last 16 years. In that time we have had our ups and downs ministering to teens; the good times and the bad. But never this bad. About 4 years ago, we were averaging 10-15 teens in our group (we're a small church, with attendance in the 80s and 90s.). Then an incident happened which began an unfortunate pattern. "The Incident" (as I call it) involved a Sunday night youth meeting in which I mentioned, in passing, that the Bible condemns homosexuality (the topic was in the news). After everyone...

    A sluggish economy has kept young Americans unemployed and underemployed as our nation's high school and college graduates find they have inadequate skills for a dynamic and increasingly global economy. And it's no secret that the enrollment rate for ObamaCare has been disappointing: Of a projected 35 million enrollees, only 16.2 million have actually enrolled. The White House knows the president's health spending law is untenable unless 40% of the enrollees are between the ages of 18 and 34, because this age group is significantly healthier than all other age groups. This age group now comprises a mere 24%, meaning...

    Back in the day, when bosses and CEOs got a little too attentive to detail, we would wryly note that they were “micromanaging.” Today, students actually want university administrators to micromanage free speech, putting the First Amendment at risk. “Two terms have risen quickly from obscurity into common campus parlance,” Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt write in the latest issue of The Atlantic. “Microaggressions are small actions or word choices that seem on their face to have no malicious intent but that are thought of as a kind of violence nonetheless. For example, by some campus guidelines, it is a...

    Murfreesboro police have charged 22-year-old Brandon Richmond Bowling with first-degree murder in connection to the death of Heather Maples. Bowling, who is a senior at Middle Tennessee State University, was booked into the Rutherford County jail just before 3 a.m. Saturday. A spokesperson with the university confirmed Bowling's status to Channel 4. Bowling was registered to resume classes this fall. His arrest comes more than a week after Maples' body was found in her apartment on Brown Drive. She was not a student of MTSU. Police are still not saying how the 22-year-old woman died.

    A Kentucky pastor was stripped of his right to minister to youth while using the Bible at a Juvenile Detention Center in Bowling Green earlier this year after he refused to sign a new policy that would prohibit him from referring to homosexuality as sinful. The pastor, David Wells of Pleasant View Baptist Church in McQuady, has helped sexually abused youth at Warren County Regional Juvenile Detention Center for 12 years, and is being represented by the Liberty Council, a Christian law firm that's filing a lawsuit against the state on his behalf for refusing to reinstate him.

    Today, Sen. Ted Cruz announced the addition of a new Millennial Director to his South Carolina campaign efforts. “I understand the crucial role Millennials will play in the 2016 presidential election,” Cruz said in a statement. In 2008, Millennials voted for Obama by a ratio of 2 to 1 – the largest margin within any group since 1972. President Obama’s popularity among young people decreased in 2012, however, he still won the under-30 age group by 24 points over Mitt Romney (60 percent to Romney’s 36 percent). Recognizing Millennials could prove important for the GOP candidates in the upcoming election....

Levin explains in elegant, but easy to understand terms just how Washington and the elites who infest the nation’s capital are stealing our future. Woven into his narrative are both his original analysis of the corruption of our modern state and thoughts on liberty and freedom from great statesmen like James Madison and Edmund...

Being lumped in with Marx is a bit unusual for him, Cruz noted, but he's thrilled to be dismissed as a wacky populist by an Establishment shill like Brooks.

She is a 94 year-old woman who was murdered in Meridian, Mississippi on March 1. Based on the complete lack of press coverage outside of the immediate area, it's reasonable to believe that the nation's journalists don't think, in the popular parlance, that "her life mattered" all that much.

Then, police said, one of the male party attendees followed the manager into the kitchen, threatened to kill him and began to attack. “I’m characterizing this as an attack on the employees of...

    BERLIN — Denis Cuspert was drawn early to gangsta rap, and later to Islam. Born and raised in West Berlin, jeered at as a half-African child and often at odds with his American stepfather, he fell in with Salafists in Germany, left for Egypt in 2012 and made his way, eventually, to Syria. By last spring, the German authorities said, he had joined Islamic State guerrillas and swore allegiance to their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. This week, Mr. Cuspert was transformed again. The American State Department announced Monday that, as “a willing pitchman” for the extremist group’s “atrocities,” Mr. Cuspert...

    Word first came in a 9-1-1 call from South Dade Senior High last September 19th – a male teacher relating a disturbing encounter with a dazed, bloody female teacher. “She was walking down the hallway and she has blood on her face and pants,” the caller told the operator. “She just told me to call 9-1-1.” Documents, photographs and recordings released the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s office Tuesday detail how the teacher was allegedly beaten, choked and raped in her classroom by 18 year-old student Victor Marshall Nash.

    Buyer's remorse among America's Obama-supporting youth?  One would hope so. Young America's Foundation released its latest Youth Misery Index – a compilation of what the organization considers the three most important statistics to determine how young people in the United States are doing.  Those stats are youth unemployment (18.1%), average graduating debt ($30,000), and national debt per capita ($58,400).  YAF calls these numbers, respectively, "one of the highest levels since World War II," "record-breaking," and "the highest ever." Put them all together, and you get a Youth Misery Index of 106.5. I corresponded with YAF's Ashley Pratte on the...

Jessica Kartalija reports now there’s a push for kids to eat healthier.

    In the recent months, I have been engaged in political debates with liberals mostly under the age of 40 (I am over the age of 40). These debates have taken place in person, via email and political discussion blogs. In each occurrence, I was contacted or confronted by the individuals who wanted to engage in discussions with me. I was personally contacted and invited to participate in discussions on a blog that repost some of my articles. However, after each round of discussions, I am saddened with the realization that our great country is in deep trouble if today’s young...
