A US State Department spokesman described reports of the killing as ďappallingĒ and said proof that the killers were linked to the group, known as Nour al-din al-Zenki, would lead to any further backing being...

    Now that Donald Trump is talking about ending birthright citizenship, other candidates who have never mentioned it before like Scott Walker are as well. But contrary to what the media would have you believe, the Constitution doesn't have to be amended to end birthright citizenship. All it would take would be an act of Congress. If an illegal alien has a child on American soil, the Constitution does not require the child be granted American citizenship. Congress can give citizenship to anyone it wants, but the Fourteenth Amendment only commands citizenship to persons born on U.S. soil to parents who...

Passage fell narrowly along party lines on a vote of 218-213, with 27 Republicans joining all Democrats in opposition to nearly derail it on the floor. For most of the roll call, the bill had more votes against it than in favor. Many Republicans either held out their votes until the last minute or changed their votes under pressure from GOP leaders.

By the middle of the week, Callie stopped breathing in her mother's arms in a pediatrician's waiting room and was rushed to the hospital. On Saturday, less than a week after the cough first appeared, Callie died at 37 days old on Jan. 30, 2010. It wasn't until a few weeks later that tests confirmed the...

    10/24/2014 6:33:11 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal
    After watching the only debate between Fourth District Congressman Steve King and Democrat challenger Jim Mowrer, it is easy to see why King opted out of appearing with Mowrer at other venues, and even considered cancelling this one. Kingís little-known opponent consistently attacked King during the hour-long event. (SNIP) He correctly pointed out that Mowrerís son would be covered under Hawk-I, an insurance plan for children established by the Iowa Legislature when Steve King was a state senator. ďBy all measures that I can uncover, Mr. Mowrerís children would be qualified for Hawk-I, so that exists, along with the high...

Even worse: Five children die daily by firearms, and one dies every seven hours from abuse or neglect. ďIt shouldnít be this hard for kids to grow and thrive

    DAMASCUS TWP., Pa. - A 10-year-old boy is being charged as an adult in the beating death of a 90-year-old woman in Wayne County. Prosecutors say the boy is Tristen Kurilla. Kurilla was visiting his grandfather, Anthony Virbitsky, who was taking care of 90-year-old Helen Novak in Damascus Township on Saturday. But the visit took an ugly turn when Novak yelled at Kurilla to leave her room. According to investigators Kurilla said Novak's yelling "made him very mad" and he "lost his temper."
