    WASHINGTON — At a joint news conference here Tuesday with President François Hollande of France, President Obama veered from his focus on the terrorist attacks in Paris to bring up the huge international gathering beginning in the French capital on Monday to hammer out a global response to climate change. “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children,” Mr. Obama said of the climate conference. The segue brought mockery, even castigation, from the political right, but...

    First there was that incident at the Trump rally in Alabama. You know, the one where a protester with, shall we say, some ideas that are not terribly compatible with those of Trump or many of his supporters, showed up. He wound up on the ground, taking a beating and throwing some punches of his own before security booted him from the gathering. And then this week, much of the country learned of news that what has seriously been described as masked men shot five people protesting what they believe to be a questionable police shooting near a Minneapolis police...

    A group of roughly 40 Capitol Hill residents gathered Friday morning at a local coffee shop to discuss the recent surge of violence in the area. As the meeting kicked off, another shooting occurred just two blocks away. According to a Metropolitan Police Department alert, a shooting occurred at the corner of 13th and Pennsylvania Ave SE, and the suspect fled toward downtown D.C. in a blue or black car. The meeting, and most recent shooting, came on the heels of what some calling the “Reign of Terror” that occurred Wednesday night. Five people were mugged in the neighborhood within...

    Citizens of Belgium's capital Brussels haven been told to avoid crowded places like cafés, restaurants and theaters because of "precise information" about a planned terrorist attack. The city's metro has been shut down for the day. The steps were taken immediately after the Belgian government raised its terror alert to the highest possible level, implying that a terror attack is "imminent." The Belgian prime minister explained that the alert is a result of "quite precise information about the risk of an attack like the one that happened in Paris." A few days ago, the country raised its threat level to...

    The University of Vermont recently held a retreat exclusively for Caucasian students so they could explore white privilege. "Examining White Privilege: A Retreat for Undergraduate Students Who Self-Identify as White," was the name of the three-day conference, as first reported by the website Campus Reform. It's a bit wordy for a t-shirt, in my humble opinion. They should've just called it "Blame the White Guy 2015." As we all know the only way to build a stronger and inclusive university campus is to shame the white children into acknowledging they are personally responsible for every imaginable evil that has befallen...

    An hour into the rock concert, the atmosphere was frenetic. The band had just finished playing a number called Save A Prayer and — having told their raucous Parisian fans they loved them — they were launching into another favourite, Kiss The Devil. How sickeningly ironic these song titles seem now. As the strobe lights flashed, silhouetting the Eagles of Death Metal drummer Julian Dorio raising his sticks and white-bearded guitarist Dave Catching thrashing out a riff, a volley of cracks rang out — so loud they cut right through the thrumming heavy metal music. Many among the hip young...

    President Obama's rejection of the Keystone XL oil pipeline project sends a clear message to the world on his commitment to fighting climate change. It's a welcome decision. The economic impact of the pipeline has been largely overblown. The significance of Obama's announcement is that it makes clear the president intends to make his environmental agenda one of his lasting legacies, even if it comes at the expense of support from Democrats in energy-rich states who argue that the pipeline would create needed jobs.

    Employers are leaving a bigger chunk of the bill for care to workers who use their health insurance, and benefits experts see few signs of this trend slowing. Most companies now offer health coverage that requires employees to pay an annual deductible before insurance kicks in, and the size of that deductible has soared in the past decade, according to a survey released Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation and Health Research & Educational Trust. The average general deductible for workers with single coverage totaled $1,077 this year, compared to only $303 in 2006. That deductible has climbed nearly seven...

    Cuban authorities prevented leading dissidents from meeting Pope Francis in Havana on Sunday, in a sign of the Communist regimes rigid intolerance of political opposition. Two well-known dissidents, Marta Beatriz Roque and Miriam Leiva, had been invited by the Vatican to attend a vespers service led by the Popes in Havanas historic baroque cathedral.

    My father, who saw some pretty terrible sights during World War 2, used to frequently tell me that bad things happen in war, but I don’t think he ever ran into anything like this. A story breaking over the weekend reveals that our “Afghan allies” have been engaged in a sick practice referred to as “boy play” in the common parlance. This essentially translates into abducting, imprisoning and raping young boys, keeping them as sex slaves. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, it’s apparently been standing policy for some time now that US soldiers were told to turn a...

    The Islamic State has managed to destroy two thousand years of Christian civilization in the Middle East in just a couple of years, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters noted on The OReilly Factor last week. And he placed the blame squarely on President Obamas cowardly, feckless, incompetent foreign policy.ISIS has been spreading across the Middle East like a plague of locusts, and as they have spread, they have targeted religious minorities, particularly Christians, for destruction. In Syria, tens of thousands of Assyrian Christians have been attacked and displaced.They are the forgotten refugees.A Catholic priest who visited Kurdish Iraq last fall described...

    When a rubber dinghy carrying around 100 African refugees across the Mediterranean began to sink, a Nigerian Christian prayed for his life in an innocent act that would end in the deaths of 12 fellow migrants. One of the Muslims on board the rickety craft ordered him to stop, saying: 'Here, we only pray to Allah.' When he refused, a violent fight ensued and 12 Christians drowned when they were thrown overboard by the Muslim refugees. The tragic news comes amid reports that an unprecedented 10,000 refugees fleeing war and persecution in Africa have been rescued by Italian ships in...

    In his last phone call home, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father what was troubling him: From his bunk in southern Afghanistan, he could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought to the base. At night we can hear them screaming, but were not allowed to do anything about it, the Marines father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because its...
  • Ben Carson Does Not Believe a Muslim Should Be President

    Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said he would not support a Muslim as President of the United States. Responding to a question on "Meet the Press," the retired neurosurgeon said, "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that." He also said that Islam, as a religion, is incompatible with the Constitution. Carson, who is near the top of several early presidential polls, said a president's faith should matter depending on what that faith is. "If it's inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of...
