    Police in Telford have been accused of ignoring child sex abuse after it emerged volunteers have been passing evidence of grooming to them for three years.

One victim who was forced to have sex with a string of men told The Mirror: “The police have betrayed the children of this town for a second time. “I dread to think how many victims there have been over the years ... “It...

Some of those joining Overd in the evangelism effort included American citizens visiting the country to share the gospel. “The purpose of mankind is to worship God and enjoy Him,” Overd preached, according to recorded footage of their arrest. “You need to...

    Will [Donald Trump] have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure. For every one he’ll lose 1½ , two Republican women. Trump’s comments like “You can’t be a 10 if you’re flat-chested,” that’ll come back to haunt him. There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally. — Ed Rendell, a surrogate for the Hillary Clinton campaign

    Source: University of Chicago Press Journals Date: April 30, 2007 Was Bristol Channel Hit By A Tsunami? Science Daily — On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Britain's largest natural disaster, the author of Tsunami: The Underrated Hazard, reveals strong new evidence that the Bristol Channel was devastated by a tsunami on January 30, 1607.

    Virginia GOP'ers returned fire over the state Democrat Attorney General Mark Herring's move to halt recognition of concealed carry permits from 25 different states. Our General Assembly has already identified who can and cannot conceal handguns in Virginia, and we cannot have that decision undermined by recognizing permits from other states with more permissive standards, Herring said when he made the announcement last week. Republican state legislators could strip Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe of his protective detail. Virginia Sen. Bill Carrico told The Herald Courier last Tuesday he plans to propose a budget amendment during the State Senate's January...

    Bristol Palin, the daughter of 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has given birth to a second child. Bristol Palin, who turned 25 in October and is a vocal advocate of sexual abstinence before marriage, tweeted Thursday that her "heart just doubled" at the birth of her new baby girl, Sailor Grace. Palin announced she was pregnant in June, a few weeks after her engagement to Dakota Meyer , a 27-year-old U.S. Marine who received a 2009 Medal of Honor , was called off after a year-long relationship. Meyer tweeted a photo of the baby girl, too, writing: "Best...

Not everything is race based and most police, and law enforcement in general, are just trying to do their jobs. Let them do their jobs, and stop looking for reasons to cause riots.

    ...before we get off the topic of Fox News and the fact that they are “oh-so-shocked” at the supposed sexism of Donald Trump…here’s a little perspective. Back in 2010, Chris Wallace joked about having my Mom (Sarah Palin) sit on his lap during an interview. In 2011, Roger Ailes said, “I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.” Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency.

    CNN anchor Carol Costello’s apology is revealing. ... Why — how? — could a CNN anchor, a woman who is herself on record saying she was once assaulted by a boyfriend — possibly have the reaction to the Bristol tape that she did? The answer is that in reality, Costello’s contempt has nothing to do with Bristol Palin. Nor, it should be noted, does it have anything to do with Sarah Palin. What this is really all about is another liberal elitist who, though not to the manor born herself, is attracted by the sense of moral, intellectual, and cultural...

    On his show Reliable Sources this morning, CNN host Brian Stelter defended Sarah Palin against media coverage of her family’s alleged “brawl” at a snowmobile party earlier this month. “Doesn’t Sarah Palin deserve the benefit of the doubt?” Stelter asked. He began the segment by airing a clip from Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough seemed to take a jab at what Stelter called Scarborough’s own network’s “saturation” of coverage over Gov. Chris Christie‘s “Bridgegate” scandal — or lack of. Stelter then took aim at the New York Daily News‘s coverage of the story, saying the newspaper did not...
