    "These tragedies must end," says President Obama, referring to Adam Lanza's horrifying assault on Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last Friday. Although it is hard to disagree with that sentiment, the measures Obama favors cannot reasonably be expected to prevent such thankfully rare but nevertheless appalling outbursts of senseless violence. After the massacre, press secretary Jay Carney reiterated Obama's support for reinstating the federal "assault weapon" ban that expired in 2004, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., promised to introduce a bill aimed at doing so next month. But we know for sure that an "assault weapon" ban...

    AARHUS, Denmark, December 18, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In 2009 a Danish couple, Camilla Skovhus and Thomas Mikkelsen, decided to abort their late-term baby after an ultrasound showed that he likely had kidney disorders that might require dialysis and transplants after birth. Staff at Aarhus Skejby hospital, where the abortion was performed, warned the couple that their baby might be born alive. He was. Their son lived a few hours after birth, dying slowly in his parents’ arms. The following year the couple was pregnant again, only to be told once again that their son may suffer from the same kidney...

    Abortions in the United States Total number of abortions in the U.S. 1973-2011: 54.5 million+ 234 abortions per 1,000 live births (according to the Centers for Disease Control) Abortions per year: 1.2 million Abortions per day: 3,288 Abortions per hour: 137 9 abortions every 4 minutes 1 abortion every 26 seconds These statistics include only surgical and medical abortions. Because many contraceptive measures are abortifacients (drugs that induce or cause abortions), it is important not to overlook the number of children killed by chemical abortions. Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control...

    A woman who was convicted of orchestrating the beating deaths of her millionaire husband and mother-in-law was sentenced Monday to life in prison. The judge also called her a coward for skipping the court session. Narcy Novack, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., waived her right to appear at the sentencing, apparently in protest, and listened to it from a prisoner holding area in an adjoining room. Judge Kenneth Karas called it "her final act of cowardice."

    Vanessa Pham’s friends and family prayed, held vigils and beseeched the public for help in the search for the 19-year-old’s killer. For 21 / 2 years, there was virtually nothing to give them hope. But then, in the span of a few days, came a DNA match and the arrest of Julio Miguel Blanco-Garcia. That brought relief, shock — and, for some, still more emptiness.“I don’t know how to feel or what it means,” said Jake Beckhard, who attended Vienna’s James Madison High School with Pham. “I want to know who this person is that killed her.” Answers to that...

    Whenever international comparisons of homicide rates are studied, it is mandatory to consider Switzerland. Not only does Switzerland have very low homicide rates, it has one of the highest levels of gun ownership in the world. As I attempted to find out what the gun homicide rate for Switzerland was, I ran into a curious phenomena. The most commonly quoted figures for gun homicides were for both gun homicides and attempted gun homicides. In one source, this led to the startling conclusion that gun homicides for a given year were greater than total homicides. At the site gunpolicy.org, the total...

    Getting a clean conviction of Major Hasan is more important than whether he has a clean face.The court martial of Army Major Nidal Hasan, who murdered thirteen people at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009 and wounded thirty-two others while screaming Allah Akbar, has dragged on too long. If he had been forcibly shaved he would have had grounds to continue the charade and, if eventually convicted, to appeal that conviction for many years. Defense counsel likely tried to inject legal error into the proceedings as grounds for post-conviction appeals. That's what defense counsel try to do when the evidence...

    Detectives have long wondered what secrets serial killer John Wayne Gacy and other condemned murderers took to the grave when they were executed -- mostly whether they had other unknown victims. Now, in a game of scientific catch-up, the Cook County Sheriff's Department is trying to be creative: They've created DNA profiles of Gacy and others and figured out they could get the executed men entered in a national database shared with other law enforcement agencies because the murderers were technically listed as homicide victims when they were put to death by the state.

Belize police are searching for McAfee as "a person of interest" in a murder investigation. "You can say I'm paranoid about it, but they will kill me, there is no question. They've been trying to get me for months. They want to silence me," Wired quoted McAfee as saying on its website. "I am not well liked by...

    BENGHAZI-GATE WORSE THAN WATERGATEMEDIA STILL REFUSES TO REPORT SCANDAL Only one day left to make a difference in this pivotal election that will massively impact our troops, our National Security, and the War on Terror for the next 4 years or longer! Now that we're on the home stretch, the mass media is running interference for Obama by ignoring the story that threatens to hurt him the most: Benghazi-gate. It's now been 55 days since the tragic terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed 4 Americans including two former Navy SEALs and our Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. And...

    Recent claims that an attempt to rescue the American Ambassador in Libya was vetoed by someone high up in the administration raises a disturbing question. Did someone higher up want the Ambassador and/or others at the consulate to die? Investigators need to examine this possibility. One potential problem might be that the action resulted from the same type of "failure to communicate" that caused the death of Canterbury Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. King Henry II was locked in a long running dispute with Beckett and at some point said something that caused his knights to mistakenly believe the king...

    A Florida judge has denied a prosecutor’s request for a gag order to prevent George Zimmerman’s attorney from posting documents and other information online. [Snip] In her two-page order Monday, Circuit Court Judge Debra Nelson wrote that she found no "overriding pattern of prejudicial commentary" and noted that a dozen media companies that had opposed the order were right when they argued that the state had failed to demonstrate prejudice. Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda had argued that Zimmerman’s lawyer, Mark O’Mara, has used a website set up to assist Zimmerman and social media sites such as...

    I've had my fill. That's enough. This morning I'm shaking I'm so ANGRY!!! I've been away from the news a few days because of my work schedule, so imagine my SHOCK when I read this morning that someone, somewhere in the Obama Administration or one of his appointees DENIED three plea's to rescue Ambassador Chris Stevens, Navy Seals Glen Doherty & Tyrone Woods and another American during the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi! Not only DENIED, but our folks who COULD HAVE rescued them were told to STAND DOWN three times?! Where the hell is the bloody damn'...

    WHY? Why did the White House at least 3 times deny military assistance to those American heroes in Benghazi? 1)Would military assistance spoil a plot to kidnap Ambassador Stevens thwarting a deal to release the blind sheik? 2)Was the White House Muslim afraid to do anything to cause more unrest in the Muslim world? 3)Obama's name is being used by his step-grandmother to raise funds to educate kids in Sharia with the help of Ansar Al-Sharia, the same Libyan group believed to have done the Benghazi attack. A lot of connection here. 4)Has the ideology of the White House Muslim...

    Last week, Manssor Arbabsiar pleaded guilty to plotting what U.S. officials have termed “a significant attack in the United States.” Attorney General Eric Holder called the Iranian-born American’s admission “a reminder of the exceptional efforts of our law enforcement and intelligence agencies in protecting America against terrorist attacks.” Yes, that’s quite right. Holder added that this outcome demonstrates that the U.S. will hold “accountable those who plan such actions.” No, that’s patently false. Arbabsiar has admitted that he was working at the direction of the Quds Force — the most elite branch of Iran’s powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The...

    On the eve of the most critical presidential election in our nation’s history, it is worth revisiting the despicable words of the wife of the criminal occupier of our White House. On Tuesday, Life News posted an image of a 2004 fundraising letter Michelle Obama wrote in support of Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), as he ran for the U.S. Senate in Illinois. In the letter, Michelle Obama laments the “rise of conservatism in this country…” Oh, the horror! That awful conservative ideology is rising, pushed by those scary people who love God and our nation as founded,...
