    FAIRCHILD, Wis. (WEAU) - An Amish family in Fairchild now has a sign on their home ordering them to leave. The court order for Amos and Vera Borntreger, along with their four young children, is for violating Eau Claire County building codes. The family claims those codes go against their religious beliefs. The county put up the sign, Thursday, around noon. The penalty for not obeying that sign by leaving their home could be $2,000 dollars for every day they stay or jail time. A group of about ten from the Amish community were gathered when the county delivered the...
  • Officials: Relationship Between Obama Administration and Israeli Government is ‘Irreparable’

    Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s senior advisers have described the relationship between the Obama Administration and the Israeli government as “irreparable,” the UK’s Jewish Chronicle reported on Thursday. Their dire evaluation comes on the heels of weeks of hostility from the White House and State Department towards Netanyahu, a situation which has intensified since Netanyahu’s Likud party won the largest amount of Knesset seats in Israel’s general election last week. Less than 24 hours after polls closed in Israel, and Likud’s win became evident, the administration was already openly talking about a “reevaluation” of the relationship with Israel. The stance was...

    It is just speculation, but Lubitz's Commercial Pilot's Training was in Bremen, Germany. Lubitz left Montabaur at the age of 20 in 2007 to begin his commercial pilot's training in the northern German city of Bremen. Marseille prosecutor says co-pilot Andreas Lubitz crashed plane 'deliberately' - both he and pilot Patrick Sonderheimer trained at Lufthansa Flight Training School in Bremen. Was there a connection between the Raid at the Bremen Islamic Center? 2 of 4 armed militants from France were arrested for possible terrorism. I don't know if they are connected, but has anyone else seen this?

    And so it begins. Ted Cruz announced Monday, the first major Republican to declare for the presidency. More will soon follow. I am happy because I suffer from a deep, bizarre and pretty American aberration: I love politics. Politics is serious, earnest, crucial, necessary—the venue in which we decide much of our country’s future. Beyond that I love the great game of it—the wins and losses, flubs and failures. The mess, the occasional glory. Even at its most disappointing high politics is the greatness game. Its necessities—caring, taking part, voting—remind us that, as Laurens van der Post once said, we...

    Today’s durable goods report for February was another shot at this wobbly edifice of the US economy. New orders for manufactured durable goods dropped by 1.4%, the Census Bureau reported. It was the third decrease in four months. Transportation equipment fell 3.5%, also the third decrease in four months. Excluding transportation, new orders – “core” durable goods – fell 0.4%, down for the fifth month in a row. And Core Capital Goods New Orders, considered an important gauge of business spending, fell 1.4%, down for the sixth month in a row. The weather is really hard to blame for this,...

    Pentagon officials envision prosecuting at most seven more Guantánamo captives, the most notorious among them an Indonesian man known as Hambali who was once considered the CIA’s most wanted terrorist in Southeast Asia, according to just released documents. That means that, of the 122 captives currently at Guantánamo, at most 17 could be accused of war crimes. The long-range vision for trials through 2019 was included in a 362-page release of internal discussions surrounding a since abandoned plan to base judges permanently at the remote U.S. Navy base. War court prosecutors had argued that the documents were privileged, but a...

    A Dean at Cornell University proclaimed on camera he’d give the green light for an ISIS club on campus in which actual members conducted training exercises. I’m curious if this demonstration of humanitarianism would be preempted by recent video of ISIS soldiers beating, raping, torturing, mutilating, and beheading countless men, women and children in the name of Allah? I also wonder if American Christians would enjoy an equally enthusiastic welcome if similar proof existed of their ranks committing mass atrocities. Oh, that’s right, Christians or Jews really aren’t welcome because the Crusades, which ended over 700 years ago, were a...

    PHNOM PENH, Cambodia, March 26 (UPI) -- Michelle Obama's tour of Asia to promote girls' education was marked by blunt criticism from Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, who said the first lady was "playing around" and using hopeful rhetoric about making improvements but not guaranteeing aid. The Phnom Penh Post reported that Hun Sen told U.S. embassy personnel and USAID workers Wednesday that Obama's Saturday visit with 10 schoolgirls in the Cambodian city of Siem Reap, part of the White House's "Let Girls Learn" initiative, was good but not enough. He said the U.S. government should promise scholarships – if...

    Last week, I applauded the Chairmen of the House and Senate Budget Committees for proposing budgets that complied with my Golden Rule, which means the burden of government would grow slower than the private sector. But my praise was limited because neither budget is ideal from the perspective of libertarians and small-government conservatives. "Even though the two proposals satisfy my Golden Rule, thatÂ’s simply a minimum threshold. In reality, thereÂ’s far too much spending in both plans, and neither Chairman proposes to get rid of a single Department. Not HUD, not Education, not Transportation, and not Agriculture." Heck, the budgets...

    He has a strong record of supporting progressive judges.  That's important to liberal activists. He backs Loretta Lynch to be attorney general. Lynch supports President Obama's amnesty order, and Graham supports her. He believes that climate change is real and that the federal government should do something about it. Climate change is very important to environmentalists, a key Democratic constituency. He’s open to a Simpson-Bowles-type approach to rein in big deficits, something that would raise tax revenues. Responsible Democrats realize that taxes have to be raised to fund the modest operations of the government. And he was an architect of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A dispute over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s position on immigration erupted on Thursday, highlighting the Republican’s struggle to appeal to conservatives on the explosive issue as he prepares to launch a Republican presidential bid. The two-term governor has consistently opposed what he calls “amnesty” for immigrants in the country illegally, but his definition of amnesty has evolved. In a recent closed-door meeting with top New Hampshire Republicans, Walker said such immigrants should be allowed to stay in the country legally.

SNIP Court heard that Reid used syringes attached to a caulking gun to inject silicone into women's buttocks between April 2011 and August 2012. SNIP Reid also told a number of her victims there were "no detrimental effects" associated with the procedures and claimed she had had the injections herself, court heard.

Zimmerman has been largely silent since his 2013 acquittal, but he is making up for lost time with a new video he recorded with his attorney, Howard Iken. Asked who he blamed for the “highest level of unfairness” he has experienced since the shooting, Zimmerman was quick with an answer. “By far, the president of the United States,” Zimmerman said. “Barack Hussein Obama....

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans slowly pushed a balanced-budget blueprint toward Senate approval Thursday, laying down conservative markers for a likely veto struggle with President Barack Obama over their plans to erase deficits through trillions in spending cuts and repeal of the health care law. Approval of the non-binding budget was certain, one day after the House ratified a slightly different version on a party-line vote. Separately, legislation to stabilize the system for paying physicians who treat Medicare patients cleared the House during the day and is expected to pass the Senate. As a result, the week's events gave credence to...

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) proposed a resolution on Wednesday that said as the climate changes, it will cause food and water scarcity around the world. That will create pressures on poor women in particular, since they are often charged with growing food and collecting water for their families. As resources dwindle, it could force many women...

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

That seems exaggerated, when considered from our perspective. A Catholic does something he feels ashamed of, hies himself to Confession, goes in the little room with the priest, and comes out a few minutes later. Sometimes he stops for a quick penance prayer in the pew. Sometimes he’s off like a shot to his next Saturday afternoon appointment. To the naked eye, it’s hard to see something akin to God hurling the Andromeda Galaxy...

    Researchers from Harvard University have successfully inserted genes from a woolly mammoth into living cells from an Asian elephant, the extinct giant's closest remaining relative. Harvard geneticist George Church used DNA from Arctic permafrost woolly mammoth samples to copy 14 mammoth genes -- emphasizing those related to its chilly lifestyle. "We prioritized genes associated with cold resistance including hairiness, ear size, subcutaneous fat and, especially, hemoglobin," Church told The Sunday Times. Then, using a kind of DNA cut/paste system called CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat), Church dropped the genes into Asian elephant skin cells. The result? A petri...

    When Kelsey McLain, then a 25-year-old in the midst of the first trimester of her pregnancy, arrived at the abortion clinic closest to her home, her car couldn’t get past the entrance of the parking lot. ... For pro-lifers, the opportunity to protest outside clinics is nothing less than a divine calling. In 1985, Joseph Scheidler, founder of the Pro-Life Action League and often called the ‘grandfather’ of the pro-life movement, published the book Closed: 99 Ways to Stop Abortion. It begins with a chapter on sidewalk counseling, which Scheidler called “the single most valuable activity that a pro-life...

    The Wall Street Journal’s Reid Epstein is up with a report that, if true — and it is well sourced — will prove very troubling for Scott Walker on the campaign trail. Epstein writes that Walker “told a private dinner of New Hampshire Republicans this month that he backed the idea of allowing undocumented immigrants to stay in the country and to eventually become eligible for citizenship.” That conflicts with statements the governor made as recently as three weeks ago that, in a reversal of his previously held position, he no longer supports comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path...
  • Fortune Mag Puts Two Ferguson Riot Inciters On Their ‘World’s 50 Greatest Leaders’ List

    In a list that included Pope Francis and tech billionaires, two Ferguson protesters were lauded as among the 50 “greatest leaders,” by Fortune magazine. Fortune described the people who made the list as “extraordinary men and women” who are “transforming business, government, philanthropy, and so much more.” If by transforming businesses, Fortune means looting and burning them, no argument here. Deray McKesson and Johnetta Elzie helped whip up the Ferguson mobs that terrorized the city in service of a lie. Not that Fortune would tell readers that

    ">Did Jesus Have Fleshly Half-Brothers? by  Dave Miller, Ph.D. The usual word in the Greek language for “brother” is adelphos. It possesses the same latitude of application that the English word possesses. Hence, it can refer to a person who shares the same religion (a spiritual brother). It can refer to a person who shares the same citizenship—a fellow countryman. It can refer to an intimate friend or neighbor. All of these uses are self-evident, and do not encroach upon the literal use of the term. By far the most prominent use of the term is the literal sense—a blood...
