    At a hospital entrance in Pakistan, a man detonated his explosive suicide vest, killing 67 people and injuring as many as 92 others. The suicide attack took place in the city of Quetta – the capital city of Pakistan’s southwestern province of Baluchistan. Early Monday morning, a prominent lawyer Bilal Kasi in Baluchistan had been shot and killed on the way to his office. He was subsequently taken to the hospital, and nearly 100 fellow lawyers came to the hospital in his honor. That’s when the suicide bomber detonated himself. Most of the victims were lawyers with the Baluchistan Bar...

    Fear Islam? In Sunday’s feature on the fear of Islam I noticed one topic conspicuous by its absence. Taqiyya is the Muslim policy of lying to the Infidel to protect, promote or advance Islam. Neither of the two Islamic scholars mentioned it, even in passing. No reference to it was found in the polling questions, nor in the comments about them. Because taqiyya is a tenet of Islam, how can you believe any Muslim who claims to be opposed to Jihad or to reject Sharia law? Those who do so sincerely are considered apostates by Islam, as deserving of death...

    How can I safely create a Facebook account without risk of the following: Facebook’s use of software that enables it to track users’ online activity after they log off of the social-networking site came under scrutiny in Washington this week, with lawmakers and consumer advocacy groups demanding a federal investigation. In a letter to the Federal Trade Commission, Reps. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Joe Barton (R-Tex.) wrote that Facebook’s use of “cookie” software should be investigated under the “unfair and deceptive acts” clause of the agency’s mandate. “When people log out of Facebook, they are under the expectation that...

    ]The 2012 outlook is improving modestly from a disappointing 2011. Economic growth picked up in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 2.8 percent and is expected to come in at 2.3 percent for 2012, up from 1.6 percent growth for all of last year, according to Fannie Mae’s (FNMA/OTC) Economic & Strategic Research Group. However, the year-end growth rate was due largely to a positive swing in business inventory growth, which is not indicative of underlying consumer demand or the overall health of the economy. Nevertheless, consumer spending improved modestly and manufacturing and services activity expanded at a strong pace....

    Attack on Arizona Congresswoman Giffords The attempted murder of Congresswoman Giffords and the tragic killing of six others in Arizona has again exposed the political left.

They have since been exposed as misinformed at the best, liars at the worst; the gunman has been shown to be one of their own.

    Iran is accelerating its uranium enrichment efforts and Israel could have only six months to destroy Tehran’s nuclear capabilities or risk an Iranian nuclear attack, according to influential Israeli columnist Caroline Glick. “Just as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has dropped nearly all pretenses about his intentions to achieve nuclear weapons, so too he makes it clear daily that he intends to use such weapons to annihilate Israel,” Glick writes in the Jerusalem Post. “With Iran speeding up its program, Israel may have as little as six months to launch a strike on its nuclear facilities before they can start churning...

    When the felonious Duke — that is, Duke Cunningham, former U.S. Rep from California's 50th District — left office last December, we had every reason to hope for something better, someone at least a little less criminal. We even had hopes for honesty! And things looked up. A candidate entered the running promising to cut back on pork. Candidate Brian Bilbray had been to Congress before, and he looked back on that time fondly, claiming to have been on the right side in 1995. "There's still more to do," he clarified in his recent campaign. He went so far as...

That is, 5 to 15 seconds into the act of sexual intercourse, she said, "Stop." He stopped immediately. She claimed rape. Thus, before his 23rd birthday, Rich Gorman of Orlando, Fla., was locked behind bars in the Liberty Correctional Institute near Tallahassee, serving a five-year sentence for sexual battery.

    I was aghast to read Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle's response to a question from The New York Times columnist John Tierney, "How long will blacks vote for a party that opposes the voucher programs they strongly favor?" Doyle's response: "I don't think this is an issue that moves voters." The discussion took place in context of the Democrat governor's opposition to moves to expand the number of vouchers available in the immensely popular and successful school choice program in Wisconsin. In a recently released Zogby poll, only 3 percent of respondents, with barely any difference between Democrats and Republicans, listed...

    Mike Wallace could be barred by his own network from covering gun-related stories on CBS News. The "60 Minutes" showboat correspondent appeared at a birthday party for columnist Art Buchwald -- a party that was also a fundraiser for the Brady Center, a prominent advocate of gun control laws. At the event Wallace showed a 47-second video of a past "60 Minutes" segment that, by Wallace's own admission, cast former NRA President Charlton Heston in a less-than-favorable light. In introducing the video, Wallace called Heston the "self-righteous enemy of the Sarah and Jim Brady bunch," according to a CBS News...

    British Prime Minister Tony Blair is pressuring the rich nations of the world to give more foreign aid to Africa -- to the tune of $25 billion a year by 2010. The U.S. already gave $3.2 billion last year. In the wake of this pressure, we might ask ourselves whether it's foreign aid that Africa needs most for economic development. A standard myth is there's a "vicious cycle of poverty" that makes economic development virtually impossible for the world's poor nations. This myth holds that poor countries are poor because income is so low that savings cannot be generated to...

    Is the United States a superpower? For years, we've assumed this was true. It was an easy assumption to make based on the amount of money we spend on our military and the high-tech weapons we've developed, from stealth bombers to precision missiles to satellites that can read license plates. But to be a superpower means being able to impose your will, by force of arms when necessary. Clearly, if America can't defeat its enemies in Iraq – the remnants of Saddam Hussein's corrupt regime, al Qaeda “emir” Abu Musab Zarqawi, and suicide bombers eager for their 72 virgins in...

    When Republicans took control of Congress in 1994, it was widely hailed as a revolution. Now, 10 years later, it is looking more and more like a coup d’etat that only changed the leadership while leaving everything else unchanged. In particular, the problem of an “Imperial Congress” seems little different today than it did under Democratic control. It is almost forgotten now how powerfully concerns about an Imperial Congress aided the Republican takeover. Democrats had controlled Congress more or less continuously since 1932. This bred arrogance and a casual disregard for the rights of the Republican minority. Even many liberals...

    U.S. Attorney David Kelley of New York City, who has concentrated on prosecuting rich white-collar criminals, has been assigned to investigate the young Republican aide accused of reading confidential Democratic communications.

Unfortunately, things aren't looking any better for the disenfranchised military voters this year, Human Events reports. An Internet absentee voting system was cancelled due to security concerns.
