    An elderly Coptic Christian woman was attacked by a wild mob last week, who stripped her naked and paraded her down the streets of Minya, south of Cairo. Rioters also attacked Christian homes in Minya, raiding at least seven before burning them to the ground. Local police say the incident was sparked by rumors of an affair between the elderly woman’s son and a Muslim woman. Incensed by the rumors, rioters sacked the Christian woman’s home, dragging her out to the street before beating her, stripping her, and forcing her to walk the streets naked as members of the mob...

Matthew Owens is still in the hospital with severe head injuries. He reportedly pleaded with his attackers as they rained down on him.

    FULLERTON, Calif. (KTLA) -- Fullerton's city council has voted to hire a police watchdog to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of mentally-ill homeless man, Kelly Thomas, after a violent confrontation with six officers. Council members voted 4-1 Tuesday night to hire Michael Gennaco, chief attorney for the Los Angeles County Office of Independent Review, at upwards of $230 an hour. Gennaco said he would immediately begin his investigation into the entire department -- not just Thomas' death -- to see if there's any corruption. The decision came after a heated meeting involving enraged community members who booed, heckled and...

    Six police officers in California were placed on leave Wednesday after surveillance video surfaced showing witnesses describe how cops fatally beat a mentally ill homeless man. Kelly Thomas, 37, died July 10, five days after a confrontation with Fullerton police investigating reports of an attempted car burglary. Surveillance video taken on an Orange County Transportation Authority bus showed passengers describing the alleged assault. "They beat him up, and then all the cops came and they hogtied him, and he was like, 'Please God, Please Dad!'" said one witness. Another video, taken by a bystander on his cell phone, shows the...

    GILBERT - Arizona Sen. John McCain held a town hall in Gilbert this morning and the economy took center stage. The town hall was focused on the nations' economic troubles and McCain said the on-going financial problems would be much greater had Congress not passed a bill to keep the country from defaulting on its debt. McCain said he is very concerned with the recent S&P downgrade of the United States' credit rating and views it as a wake-up call to the nation. "It will cost more to borrow money and it is a very serious situation," McCain said. McCain...

    Poll finds Americans angry about pretty much everything Daily Caller – 36 mins ago No wonder David Bowie was afraid of Americans. A new Newsweek/Daily Beast poll finds that Americans are angry about…pretty much everything. From President Obama to congressional Republicans to even God (who has a 33 percent approval rating), everyone needs to watch out for an angry mob coming their way. Unemployment is at 9.1 percent, gas and grocery prices are skyrocketing, the housing market is in the dumps, and people aren’t happy. Three quarters of Americans think the country is on the wrong track, and 81 percent...

    KABUL, Afghanistan – Anger over the burning of the Muslim holy book at a Florida church fueled a second day of deadly violence half a world away in Afghanistan, where demonstrators set cars and shops ablaze Saturday in a riot that killed nine protesters, officials said. The church's desecration of the Quran nearly two weeks ago has outraged millions of Muslims and others worldwide, fueling anti-American sentiment that is further straining ties between the Afghan government and the West. The uproar even brought violence to the normally peaceful northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif on Friday, when a crowd of protesters —...

  • Thank a “Pissed-off Teabagger”: Federal Health Care Law Declared Unconstitutional!

    12/13/2010 3:25:25 PM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 24 replies · 1+ views
    Daily Kos hates Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, and now they have even more reason to trash him, thank God. This is what DK wrote on June 8, 2010 about the Attorney General’s fight against the part of the healthcare law that forces people to buy insurance: Commerce clause, taxation without representation, whatever. The colonists were pissed. About tea, or something. The teabaggers are pissed. Not about tea, but they want to be like the colonists, so the Boston Tea Party must be somehow applicable to the new health insurance law. Hell, it works for Boehner and Cantor, et al....

    Republicans are positioned for large gains Tuesday, likely retaking the House and picking up seats in the Senate, amid strong voter frustration with President Barack Obama and the Democratic-run Congress, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. In the new survey, Republicans held a six-point edge, 49% to 43%, when likely voters were asked which party they hoped would be in charge. Nearly half of voters who favored GOP control of Congress said their feelings reflected a vote of protest against the Democrats—an unusually high proportion that pollsters said reflected deep frustration among many voters. "The Democrats are...

    CHARLES TOWN - From the Ohio River to the Eastern Panhandle, West Virginians are fed up. They're disappointed in their politicians and disgusted with how they're behaving. They're frustrated their taxes helped fund bailouts they'd never get. They're tired of career politicians, yet wary of those who want to replace them. But that anger makes them unpredictable: Interviews with dozens of would-be voters from Parkersburg to Charles Town suggest that many are just as likely to cast a protest vote on Election Day as they are to stay home. "We need some Americans, instead of Democrats and Republicans,'' says Ed...

    Many Democratic candidates trying to survive the 2010 midterm elections know they must distance themselves from Mr. Obama and Nancy Pelosi, who are viewed as the authors of health care reform, cap and trade, and other legislative initiatives that are generally unpopular. While some Democratic candidates go so far as to attack parts of the president’s agenda, others take it a step further. The Democratic candidate for Rhode Island governor told a local radio station that Obama can “take his endorsement and shove it.” Mississippi Democratic Rep. Gene Taylor told his local newspaper, “I did not vote for Obama. I...

    The New York Times’ headline today, “GOP is poised to seize the House, if not the Senate,” says it all, just 10 days ahead of the November 2nd mid-terms. America’s most powerful newspaper, and standard bearer of the liberal elites that have run the United States in the Obama era, for the first time appears to be accepting the likelihood of defeat and acknowledging the scale of the conservative revolution sweeping America. The Times is now talking of a Washington “on the brink of a substantial shift in the balance of power”, a momentous change driven by a “highly energized...

    Wasn't Barack Obama supposed to unite us? Wasn't his speech at the Democratic National Convention a declaration that he did not see us as a "Blue America" or a "Red America" but as the United States of America? Fine words..but in the end just words as Obama might phrase it. Now he and other Democrats will have to live with his handiwork: an enraged citizenry eager to take out their justifiable anger on those who led us into this morass: the Democrats. From the folks at Gallup: The 44% of Republican voters who say they are voting more against the...

    The lamb plans to enter the lion's den. U.S. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., plans to meet Wednesday evening with Charleston Tea Party members at North Charleston City Hall. "Our objective is to provide a forum that will foster issue based questioning and allow ample time for the Senator to provide detailed information on his positions and votes on those issues," according to a Tea Party news release. Graham's meeting comes as he looks to mend fences with the conservative core of South Carolina's Republican Party -- a core upset with some of his recent positions on immigration and energy reform.

    The rally organized by conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck this weekend was a prominent reminder of the disenchantment many Americans feel about Washington—a sentiment that provides both opportunities and pitfalls for the Republican Party. The size and geographic diversity of the crowd demonstrated the breadth of anti-incumbent feeling. But many of those interviewed at the rally expressed dissatisfaction not only with Democrats but with the traditional Republican leadership too, saying GOP candidates shouldn't take their vote for granted.

    WASHINGTON — The incumbent senator from Alaska is taken by surprise in a primary. A new conservative movement energizes Republicans in a furious response to a Democratic White House. Little-known insurgent candidates prepare to storm the Senate. It is starting to feel like 1980. While the 1994 Republican takeover of the House is regularly explored for insight into what might happen this polarized election year, parallels are emerging between the watershed Senate election of three decades ago and the campaign of 2010 as another conservative rebellion threatens to reshape the Senate. In 1980, shocked Senate Democrats lost 12 seats in...

    WASHINGTON — If Democrats had doubts about the voter unrest that threatens to rob them of their majority in Congress, they needed only look from the Capitol this weekend to the opposite end of the National Mall. It's where Ken Ratliff joined tens of thousands of other anti-government activists at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial for conservative commentator Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally. "There's gotta' be a change, man," said Ratliff, a 55-year-old Marine veteran from Rochester, N.Y.
