  • German Homeschoolers Win Custody of Their Kids, But Court Still Calls it Abuse of Parental Authority

    Christian Post ^ | 08/30/2014 | Anugrah Kumar
    An appeals court in Germany has ruled that a family court's decision to keep legal custody of four children away from their parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, was wrong, and ordered that complete custody be returned to the family. However, the court maintained that homeschooling endangers children and they should go to school. "We have won custody and we are glad about that," Dirk said in a statement released by Virginia-based Home School Legal Defense Association, which has been assisting the Wunderlich family since their children were taken on Aug. 29, 2013. The court said taking the children away was...

    72-Year-Old Man Knocked to Ground in West Village Attack By Natalie Musumeci WEST VILLAGE — A 72-year-old man was punched in the face in an apparently random attack in the West Village Monday afternoon, police said. The victim was knocked to the ground with a single hit as he walked past a man waiting in front of 99 Jane St., a doorman building in a residential part of the village between Washington Street and West Street. The male attacker immediately ran off as his victim, who was carrying a shopping bag, fell into a doorway at 5:29 p.m., surveillance video...

    Terrorism prevention has become a field of its own, but now a vital piece of that work is ending. The Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism was created after the bombing in 1995. Based on merits alone, M.I.P.T. could be regarded as one of the top training centers in the country. Twenty thousand officers trained across 450 agencies nationwide. Now, all that work will soon end. "I was dismayed, angry and ultimately saddened by it and their decision," Executive Director of M.I.P.T. David Cid said. In the wake of April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City responded with a three-prong approach...

Ten others were shot Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning. Most recently, a 25-year-old man was shot in the back and...

    The key argument against the Constellation program was that it didn’t pencil out — that there wasn’t nearly enough money dedicated to the program to achieve the lunar landing it envisioned. But now the NRC committee has delivered essentially the same assessment of the Obama Administration’s current NASA program of record. If the goal is Mars, the committee said, the current strategy isn’t going to work. “Absent a very fundamental change in the nation’s way of doing business, it is not realistic to believe that we can achieve the consensus goal of reaching Mars,” committee co-chair and former Indiana Gov....

"He needs to answer for what he did." Within days of his disappearance, says Buetow, teams monitoring radio chatter and cell phone communications intercepted an alarming message: The American is in Yahya Khel (a village two miles away). He's looking for someone who speaks English so he can talk to the Taliban. "I heard it straight from the interpreter's lips as he heard it over the radio," said Buetow. "There's a...

It was one of the largest heroin and cocaine rings in metro Detroit history, prosecutors said, but before a jury handed down guilty verdicts, three convicted in the case — 39-year-old Carlos Powell of Washington Township; 36-year-old Eric Powell of Franklin Farms; and 38-year-old Earnest Proge of Detroit — all took off. Deputy U.S. Marshall Rob Watson said the three were able to get away because they were out on bond. {Miniscule...

    The United States have a bloated, unelected bureaucracy answerable only to unelected political appointees to whom they must "suck up" should they desire promotion and more power. It creates more laws (Federal regulations) than the Congress and then interprets them to its advantage.The Federal bureaucracy has grown more vigorously than Topsy. The notion probably had its American origins with Theodore Roosevelt's idea that a bureaucracy of experts could guide the legislative branch and those who administer our laws along proper paths. Not necessarily a bad idea but we now have -- instead of a bureaucracy of experts -- one intent upon "implementing" Federal legislation along lines helpful...

    ttorney General Eric Holder said Friday that the federal government will recognize about 300 same-sex marriages performed in Michigan before a federal appeals court halted them, despite a decision by Michigan's governor not to recognize those unions. The decision means federal benefits will be extended to those couples -- including the ability to file taxes jointly, get Social Security benefits for spouses and request legal immigration status for partners. "These families will be eligible for all relevant federal benefits on the same terms as other same-sex marriages," Holder said in a statement.

Bolton, speaking directly after the speech on Fox News, was flummoxed that President Obama’s chief concern appeared to be that Russian President Vladimir Putin violated international law by invading Ukraine. Absent, Bolton noted, was any mention of Russia’s imperialist motivations or the need to implement further deterrents against Putin. “There’s nothing in the speech about understanding force and power and international affairs the way the Russians do and how they proceeded,...

But these days, he seems resurgent, pushing states to strike down voting restrictions on ex-felons and fighting hard to restore some of the key powers of the Voting Rights Act. It has been an uphill climb. In 2012, Holder became the first attorney general to be held in contempt by the House of Representatives while, the year before, he had to retreat from his earlier insistence that suspects in...

    NEW YORK – The underlying assumption that has led to the increasing legitimization of same-sex marriage is now fueling a growing effort in academic circles to mainstream pedophilia. Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior. If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized. James Cantor, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in the Law and Mental Health Program at the...

    An Ohio woman is in jail after she allegedly stabbed her twin sister in the chest during a fight over an apple fritter. Contisha Hayes, 21, and her sister, Tamara Delaney, 21, were in the kitchen cooking the fritter when they 'started to play fight' over the treat, investigators say.

    Hanif Thompson, one of the four men charged today in last Sunday's fatal carjacking at The Mall at Short Hills, loved to drive cars and sold drugs, but was not a violent person, a former neighbor said this morning. Tiwana Myers, who said she used to live next door to Thompson on Hobson Street, said she remains convinced the 29-year-old Thompson was caught up in the deadly carjacking by accident. He was never violent, she said. "He was a hustler — but I can't believe he was a carjacker," Myers said. "He wasn't a bad guy. He sold drugs to...

    When Basim Henry robbed a Union Township bank in November 2003, it was not hard to connect him to the crime. He had driven his white Pontiac to the bank on Morris Avenue, authorities said, and left it parked illegally on an adjacent side street with the keys in the ignition. At least three of the four men charged this morning in the fatal carjacking of a Hoboken lawyer at a The Mall at Short Hills last Sunday evening have been arrested before, according to state and federal records, for crimes ranging from burglary to bank robbery.
