    On September 28, 2016, Mrs. Raffie Chohan stood trial for statements she made during a speech she gave at a Pegida demonstration on November 11, 2015, in the Netherlands. Statements she made during her 15-minute speech were: ‘The Islamisation of the Netherlands has already begun, supported by the Dutch government and the EU.’ ‘The left doesn’t realize that they are being used by Islam, and once Islam achieves a majority they will be finished, too. Just look at Iran, look at Libya etc. The left thinks that it will never become a victim of Islam. (…) Islam will use the...

    CDC director Tom Frieden warned today of a possible cholera epidemic in the U.S. Frieden had originally thought that the cholera was related to the Zika mosquitoes and limited to Florida but CDC investigators proved otherwise. CDC investigators identified hundreds of cholera cases in Illinois with Chicago being the center of the outbreak. Investigators determined that 40 Haitian men were bused in from Florida to vote. The Haitians were part of a program by the Obama Administration to accelerate the nationalization program for thousands of Haitian refugees before the election. It was determined that the men were promised by local...

    Full title - "Is Facebook listening to your Confession? In an era of mobile microphones and apps that listen, both priest and penitent should be prudent about what they carry into the confessional" “All phones have a microphone, and Facebook and many other phone apps require access to the microphone and camera,” said Fr. George Hajj, parish priest at St. Anthony of Padua Maronite Church in the United States. “Therefore we don’t know what technology, and in whose interest it is in, to spy and overhear what is being said in the confessional.” For Father Andrew Pinsent, Research Director at...

    The Black Panthers emerged from this gritty Northern California city (Oakland) 50 years ago, declaring to a nation in turmoil a new party dedicated to defending African-Americans against police brutality and protecting the right of a downtrodden people to determine their own future. In the group’s short life, it launched an ambitious breakfast program for children and opened free health clinics to screen for sickle-cell anemia. At the same time, party members scared mainstream America with their calls for revolution that were at odds with Martin Luther King Jr.’s insistence on peaceful protest.

Granbury police say Officer Chase Miller was scanning his radio’s EMS channel on Oct. 12 when he heard a dispatcher call for paramedics to respond to a call about a toddler who had stopped breathing. Police said Miller realized he was near the location and immediately responded. Video from Miller’s dashcam shows him performing CPR on the boy until he resumed breathing. The boy’s parents told the officer he had suffered a fever-induced seizure. He was later taken to the hospital.

    Rapper Eminem released a brand-new track ahead of the final presidential debate titled “Campaign Speech.” The seven-minute freestyle rap covers a wide range of controversial news events that have surfaced during this election season — from the killing of Trayvon Martin, to Charleston church gunman Dylann Roof, to 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his anti-cop demonstrations. Given the rap’s title, it’s no surprise that Donald Trump gets a mention. What is surprising, however, is the fact that Eminem of all people chose to bash Trump and his supporters, considering how much he and the Republican nominee have in common.

    If you have an interest in fairness, justice and preventing wrongful convictions, then the new book "How the Police Generate False Confessions," by former Washington, D.C., homicide detective James Trainum is an important read. It takes you inside the interrogation room to see how investigators extract admissions from innocent people, and how the justice system can fix this persistent problem, seen in high profile cases such as the Central Park Five, the Norfolk Four and the teenaged suspect from Wisconsin in the Netflix series "Making a Murderer." It's a phenomenon that remains, understandably, incomprehensible to many. Someone "admits" to a...

From this large "haystack," as officials have called it, NSA analysts could get approval to run queries on specific numbers purportedly linked to international terrorism investigations. The problem for the NSA was that the haystack was only about 30 percent...

In a survey of 1,136 Americans who identified themselves as NFL fans, 29 percent said they are watching fewer NFL games. (Interestingly, 27 percent said they were watching more, though that does not necessarily correlate only a 2 percent net loss.) The fans claiming they watch less of the NFL cited the following reasons: • Protests by Colin Kaepernick and others • Lack of opportunity to watch the NFL...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has aroused new controversy by declaring that the 2016 presidential election is “rigged.” On the one hand, that is both an irresponsible statement, and also a potentially self-destructive one. On the other hand, it may be true. It is irresponsible to claim the election is “rigged” for the reason most of Trump’s media critics have suggested — namely, that by casting the result as illegitimate, Trump is ensuring it will be harder to unify the country afterwards. Moreover, it is politically questionable to call an election “rigged” while it is still ongoing, because it suggests...
