    A Missouri state senator was arrested after causing a disturbance at a Ferguson police station. The senator, Jamilah Nasheed, had a fully loaded 9mm handgun and eight additional rounds on her person. Senator Nasheed refused to take a breathalyzer test, despite having a strong smell of alcohol. Nasheed was arrested and charged with violation of a Obey Lawful Order of Police and Manner of Walking in the Roadway. Nasheed claims innocence, stating that: “It was a symbolic arrest – sending a message to the protesters that we can protest peacefully and that we must protest peacefully and that we want...

    Men and women who are considering providing abortions as a career must overcome their natural revulsion to witnessing violence. They must silence their consciences and prepare themselves to participate in the destruction of human life on a daily basis. If they cannot do this, they will not be able to perform abortions. Here are quotes from four people – two medical students, a doctor, and a would-be Planned Parenthood director, going through this process. 1.) A doctor who was trying to decide whether or not to perform abortions witnessed a second trimester procedure and described what she saw: Seeing an...

    The disastrous mid-term relatio seeded confusion, conflict, and lingering bitterness at every level of the Church. But the synod itself was only Act One Upon becoming director of media relations for the American bishops in late 1969, I quickly made a crucial discovery about my new employers. With just a handful of exceptions, the bishops were painfully naďve about the news business, yet convinced they could manipulate the process to get the story told as they wished. They were wrong of course, and eventually they learned that. But in the interim their attempts at manipulation were a continuing source of...

    INN ^ | Tuesday, October 21, 2014 9:09 PM | Ronn Torossian
    Recently, The New York Times Magazine had an article entitled “The Beggars Of Lakewood”, which I found to be a distorted depiction of the Hareidi-religious Jewish community of Lakewood, New Jersey. The article describes how the people of Lakewood do not turn anyone vetted as needy away. It could—and should—have been called “The Generous Givers of Lakewood.” Because this is a community of Torah scholars who, barring a few, are far from wealthy. Instead, it focuses on those asking for funds. The piece uses the hackneyed stereotype of Jews as money-grubbing beggars—replete with a picture of a black hat surrounded...

    The Democratic effort to pump up the African-American vote in Georgia just took an interesting turn. A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters: “If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.” Here’s a complete look: And...

    After posting yet another disappointing quarter, McDonald’s CEO Don Thompson said Tuesday the company hasn’t been keeping up with the times and that changes are in store for its U.S. restaurants. Thompson said that starting in January, McDonald’s will “simplify” its menu to make room for restaurants to offer options that are best-suited for their regions. To offer greater customization, he also said the company planned to expand its “Create Your Taste” offering that lets people pick the buns and toppings they want on burgers by tapping a touchscreen. The program is currently being offered in Southern California, and McDonald’s...

    After Pope Francis published his Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, which, in part, attempted to highlight the concern that the rich should have for the poor and the marginalized, he became known in conservative circles as the Pope of the Redistribution of Wealth; to which, liberals would have preferred a more fun title – Pope of Economic Justice. Nevertheless, due to the Pope’s interest in governments and corporations sharing their booty he was compared to President Barack Obama. Perhaps, to a very limited degree, Pope Francis and Barack Obama do have a common interest in economic justice, but what everyone has...

According to his older brother who posted the video to reddit, Gabe has Down Syndrome and is the Rhinelander’s biggest fan. During the last game of the Hodag’s season, the team put Gabe into play, and orchestrated it so he would be guaranteed to score a touchdown. He is only eight, after all. What makes it more special is that the opposing team, Mosinee, fumbled and flopped all over the field as though they were...

    (CNN) -- Ben Bradlee, the zestful, charismatic Washington Post editor who guided the paper through the era of the Pentagon Papers and Watergate and was immortalized on screen in "All the President's Men," has died. He was 93. Bradlee began end-of-life care at his home last month after suffering from Alzheimer's disease and dementia for several years. He was the executive editor of The Washington Post from 1968 to 1991, during which time the paper covered the downfall of President Richard Nixon in the Watergate scandal.

    Benjamin C. Bradlee, who presided over The Washington Post newsroom for 26 years and guided The Post’s transformation into one of the world’s leading newspapers, died Oct. 21 at his home in Washington of natural causes. He was 93. From the moment he took over The Post newsroom in 1965, Mr. Bradlee sought to create an important newspaper that would go far beyond the traditional model of a metropolitan daily. He achieved that goal by combining compelling news stories based on aggressive reporting with engaging feature pieces of a kind previously associated with the best magazines. His charm and gift...

    To the various critics of Pamela Geller’s and the Stop Islamization of America Campaign: It says something about the advanced state of political correctness in this country, and the moral rot it causes, that a bus ad featuring a photograph of Amin al-Husseini, the once Mufti of Jerusalem, sitting across from Adolf Hitler, draws immensely shallow and ignorant criticism. (See “Spread Hummus, Not Hate.”) The story behind the Mufti and the parallels with today are eye-opening, shocking, and portend a very dangerous near-term future for the Middle East and the world.

The United Nations is spearheading efforts to end a civil war sparked by President Bashar al-Assad’s crackdown on pro-democracy protests more than three years ago. “A purely military response to the vicious new threat posed by (Islamic State) could ultimately contribute to the radicalization of other Sunni armed groups and spark a...

The poll, sponsored by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, and conducted by the Shvakim Panorama research institute, found that 76 percent of the Jewish public opposed a Palestinian state if it meant dividing the capital, indicating that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took no political risks—and indeed reflected a wide consensus opinion—when he...

    When Monica Lewinsky reemerged in the May issue of Vanity Fair, many speculated that the timing of the infamous former White House internÂ’s return to the spotlight was relatively good news for Hillary Clinton. It suggested, some speculated, that LewinskyÂ’s determination to air the dirty laundry of the 1990s in early 2014 was good timing for Clinton, and that the issue would be fully litigated long before the 2016 campaign began in earnest. That assumption went out the window this month when Lewinsky joined Twitter and began to speak openly and without regret about the incident that made hers...

    Rabbi Mark Kula and Imam Khalid Salahuddin are looking forward to attending church Sunday. Yes, church. The pair are two of several religious leaders who will take part in an interfaith service at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Coral Gables Congregational Church, across from the Biltmore Hotel, at 3010 De Soto Blvd. The fourth annual service, organized by MCCJ, formerly known as the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews, is themed, “Pursuing Peace: A Common Path.” “What we see, what we believe, affects the way we interact with people,” said Kula, of Bet Shira Congregation, a Conservative congregation in Pinecrest....

    Q. My Sister’s Parenting: My sister has this idea that she shouldn’t confine her son to traditional gender stereotypes. Recently she started dressing him in feminine clothing. He is 4 years old and gets teased at his day care and has expressed many times how much he hates his dresses and pink tutus. She keeps telling him the other children are wrong to tease him and he should be proud of dressing that way. What can I say to her without insulting her parenting skills? A: Your sister’s behavior will not have your son embrace her ideals of gender fluidity,...

    Most people believe that it is up to the woman getting married whether she takes her husband's last name or not - but that kids should generally get their father's name The wedding of Amal Alamuddin to George Clooney in Venice has been one of the most talked about events of 2014. Amal, who is a prominent human rights lawyer in the UK, caused a certain amount of controversy due to her decision to take Clooney's last name as her own. Furthermore, unlike many women with professional careers, she will also professionally be known as 'Amal Clooney' instead of 'Amal...

    Just two weeks from now Americans will be going to the polls to vote in the mid-term elections. All eyes will be on the US Senate to see if there is a shift from Democratic control into Republican hands. Among the key races that could decide the chamber's fate is Louisiana. For 18 years Democrat Mary Landrieu has held one of the state's Senate seats, but now she is in a tough battle against Republican Bill Cassidy.

    Sharpen Your Skills Today's Scripture "Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings…" (Proverbs 22:29, NIV) Today's Word from Joel and Victoria Too often, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut, doing the same thing the same way over and over every day. But if we are going to live at our absolute best, we should constantly be growing and sharpening our skills. We should strive to learn and grow every single day because when we stop learning, we stop growing. When we stop growing, we stop living. What are you doing to...

    Impulsiveness or Discipleship? " But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith . . . —Jude 20 " There was nothing of the nature of impulsive or thoughtless action about our Lord, but only a calm strength that never got into a panic. Most of us develop our Christianity along the lines of our own nature, not along the lines of God’s nature. Impulsiveness is a trait of the natural life, and our Lord always ignores it, because it hinders the development of the life of a disciple. Watch how the Spirit of God gives a...

    Times of Israel ^ | 20/10/14 | Elhanan Miller
    The Palestinian leadership is bound for the UN Security Council, where it will demand a deadline for Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank. But, given the risk of a swift Hamas takeover of the West Bank, a former Israeli security official questioned the sincerity of the Palestinian demand, speculating that it may be acting against its own self-interest just to spite Israel. Addressing donor states in a conference for the rehabilitation of Gaza last week, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas did not cite November 2016 as the final date by which Israeli troops are to leave the West Bank (as...

    Note that this comes from the Georgia Democratic Party itself, not some no-name outside outfit that’s looking to boost its profile by tossing racial grenades.One of the fun subplots of this campaign is watching Democrats, starting with The One himself, feign anger at Republicans for using fear to gain an advantage while they scaremonger in increasingly cartoonish ways themselves. Mark Udall went so nuts with his “Cory Gardner hates women” message in Colorado that the Denver Post finally threw up its hands in disgust and endorsed Gardner. Now, with two weeks to go and red-state Democrats desperate to survive,...
