    A Muslim immigrant was arrested Wednesday night and charged with viciously raping and attacking a 10-year-old girl in Minnesota. Something strange occurred during the initial reporting of the case, since local news outlets refused to release information showing that the suspect was in fact a “refugee” from Somalia.

    Donald Trump is not a fascist––probably. His ex-wife Ivana once claimed he kept a volume of Hitler’s collected speeches in a cabinet by his bed, and read from time to time the fuhrer’s vision of human life as a pitiless war of all against all. “If I had these speeches, and I am not saying that I do, I would never read them,” he told Vanity Fair in 1990. But consider something the architect of Trump Tower, Der Scutt, once said on how to evaluate the truth value of Donald Trump claims: “divide by two, then divide by four, and...

    vSen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., thinks the press' criticism of Hillary Clinton's flip-flop this week on the White House's trade deal with Pacific Rim countries is unfair, and argued in an interview Thursday morning that all candidates "evolve" on these sorts of issues. The senator and Clinton super delegate accused MSNBC specifically of being particularly uncharitable towards the former secretary of state. "I've been listening to you guys this morning," McCaskill said on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "I think some of it has been unfair."

    Around the world, Christians are targeted for persecution and martyrdom, something that is developing even in the United States. But even as church leaders increasingly are on guard against threats of murderous violence, experts warn they may be ignoring a far more common threat – sexual assault against congregants. “Sexual assaults taking place on church property is an epidemic in our nation,” Carl Gallups told WND. “The reasons for it are numerous (and sometimes complex), but the main problem is that most churches have an abysmal lack of adequate security measures. While many churches are concerned about the growing trend...

    I went to Manhattan to be a novelist and took the whole project very seriously. You know, in that pretentious way that young writers do. But somebody recommended The Big Sleep to me and I was totally charmed. This is the opposite of highbrow literature. It's a lively crime story told in street-level English, with slang and hyperbolic metaphors. The hero is a tough-guy private investigator, a knight on a white horse as Raymond Chandler himself explained. People come to him with their problems and the PI makes justice prevail. Raymond Chandler wrote a half-dozen outstanding novels starring his famous...

    Last year, a Massachusetts teenager named Philip Chism was accused of raping and murdering his teacher, Colleen Ritzer, after being asked to stay after school to study. Chism was just 14-years-old at the time and a freshman in high school. His murdered teacher was an agonizingly young 24. Ritzer’s body was found in the woods, partially covered by leaves, after being torn open with a box cutter. A letter was placed next to her lifeless form. It read “I hate you all.” Now, after months of prepping, the trial of Philip Chism is finally getting underway. He is being tried...

    President Obama was visibly frustrated when he spoke about a shooting at a community college in Oregon Thursday, saying, "our thoughts and prayers are not enough." "It's not enough. It does not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel. And it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America," the president said in a statement from the White House briefing room. He argued, "The notion that gun laws don't work, or just will make it harder for law-abiding citizens, and criminals will still get their guns - it's not borne out...

Among other things, the report claims that Americans who are concerned about illegal aliens’ involvement in crime are, well, confused.

Under the controversial proposal, Chief Kerr Putney could designate a high-crime area as a safety zone in response to crimes such as drug sales or discharging guns that were committed on public property. Someone who has been arrested for crimes in the area could be issued a notice that they are no longer allowed to enter, for as long as the safety zone is in effect.
