    It is nearly impossible to overstate the evangelistic failure of the Catholic Church in Ireland following that countrys democratic embrace of homosexual marriage the first nation ever to openly choose such debauchery for itself instead of having it imposed by the courts. Many reasons were offered last week for why this happened on an island nation where roughly 84 percent of the population identifies as Catholic. Among them were the tone-setting decadence of a divorce culture, the priest abuse scandal and the fat, dumb and happy that came with the countrys economic revolution in the 1990s.

    Some armless, others hobbling on spindly prosthetic legs, Honduran migrants came to Mexico City this week to protest their plight. Maimed in Mexico when they tried to catch a precarious train to reach the United States, they feel forgotten, ignored and with little reason to live. Our visa [to enter the U.S.] is our mutilation, our handicap, our lost arms and legs, said Jose Luis Hernandez, 29, of Progreso, Honduras. He fell off the train, known here as La Bestia the Beast in the northern border state of Chihuahua; caught under its wheels, Hernandezs leg, left arm and...

    Mexican authorities said Tuesday they staged 153 raids over the last year on a train known as La Bestia that rolled toward the U.S. border crowded with hundreds of Central American migrants. Following a big surge in child migrants reaching the U.S. border last year, Mexicos government cracked down on routes commonly used by migrants to travel from Guatemala to the U.S. border. The head of the National Immigration Institute, Ardelio Vargas, said the 153 train raids were part of 758 immigration inspections over the last year.

    Tuxtla Gutirrez (Mexico) (AFP) - Mexican authorities have launched operations to block Central American migrants from illegally heading to the United States, stopping them from hitching rides on a freight train known as "The Beast." The operations came after officials pledged to take action to stem a wave of unaccompanied child migrants who have flooded into the United States in record numbers in recent months. Migrant rights activists and a consular official from a Central American nation said Mexican federal police and immigration agents conducted patrols late Thursday along the train tracks in the southern state of Chiapas, which borders...

    The Obama administration praised a recent agreement between Mexico and Guatemala that could allow even more migrants to hop on so-called "death trains" to try to unlawfully enter the United States. In fact, the administration may even send Mexico foreign aid to help the country implement its "southern border initiative" with Guatemala. At a Thursday Senate hearing on the unaccompanied children who are flooding across the border, Ambassador Thomas A. Shannon, the Counselor of the Department of State, told senators that Mexico's "Southern border strategy" with Guatemala "was a welcome step towards improving Mexicos ability to exercise greater control along...

    On the day President Barack Obama met with Texas Gov. Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis, at least 1,300 migrants were stranded when the so-called "Death Train" derailed in southern Mexico. Reuters reported that "a cargo train" nicknamed "the Beast," which is "used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border," derailed on Wednesday in Oaxaca, Mexico." About 1,300 migrants, many of whom were "young people," were reportedly stranded but not injured while riding what others have referred to as "El Tren de la Muerte," or Death Train.

    A Mexican train carrying more than 1,000 illegal immigrants derailed en route to the Texas border area. The cargo train was transporting both Central Americans and Mexican adults and children hoping to enter the United States illegally and surrender themselves to Border Patrol agents. The train many illegal immigrants are using is referred to as La Bestia The Beast. Mexican authorities think The Beast may have derailed due to several days of heavy rain in the area. Those attempting to cross over the Texas border illegally found themselves stranded and forced to go on foot if they were to...

A senior EU official said Tuesday that the bloc was considering cutting its annual aid to the PA if the current round of talks fails to end in an agreement. The EU provides the PA with about 300 million Euros in aid per year. As well, the official was quoted by Israeli media as having said, the 28-nation bloc was considering reviving its plan...

Well, how would the Justice Department be dealing with it if it had been uttered by, say, the president of an insurance company rather than the president of the United States? Fraud is a serious federal felony, usually punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment with every repetition of a fraudulent communication chargeable as a separate crime. In computing sentences, federal sentencing guidelines factor in such considerations as the dollar...

So the advance team wheels his non-sequestered limo out of the cargo plane and over to the gas pumps to make sure he has a full tank when he arrives. Apparently there is some concern he might have to make a hasty retreat and wont have time to fill it up later. Whoever was filling it up didnt know that it ran on diesel and filled it up with regular. Apparently, they...

    Barack Obama's hopes of a smooth start to his first presidential trip to Israel suffered a hitch on Wednesday when his armoured limousine broke down after a driver reportedly filled it with diesel instead of petrol. The hulking vehicle, nicknamed "the Beast" for its supposed robustness in the face of potential attacks, juddered to a halt on the motorway between Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport and Jerusalem after its engine apparently proved incapable of absorbing the alien fuel intake. Israeli media outlets, including the flagship Channel 2 television station, reported that the car had been filled with diesel. The sleek...

The President was hit with the penalty for his motorcade. London mayor Boris Johnson wanted the 10 ($15) congestion fee to be paid for the President's armor-plated limo - dubbed "The Beast" - and all other cars during his visit in May. But cameras only managed to photograph one of the vehicles in Obama's motorcade because they were driving so close together. That is the subject of the $193 fine.

    Washington--The government is working on a new loan facility to help companies that issue credit cards, make student loans and finance car purchases. The Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve will unveil the program Tuesday, according to people familar with the plan. They spoke on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement has yet to be made. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson has said he plans to use a "relatively modest share" of the $700 billion financial bailout money to pay for the new program. It's the latest effort by the government to break through a dangerous credit clog that has...

    A group of scientists is building the world’s most evil computer program. This isn't a B-movie setup: A team at Rensselaer Institute’s AI & Reasoning Lab is bringing personified evil to virtual life in the hope that they'll unlock the secrets of human morality.

    Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton tried to backpedal Friday from comments she made in October suggesting Mississippi was a backward place for women's progress. Speaking to radio station WJZD-FM in Gulfport, Miss., the former first lady said the comments she made about the state in the run up to the Iowa caucuses "were not exactly what I said," even though they came directly from an interview she gave to the Des Moines Register in October. Clinton was on a campaign swing through Mississippi before Tuesday's Democratic presidential primary. The newspaper quoted the New York senator discussing Iowa and Mississippi...

    When Hillary Clinton said, way back in New Hampshire, that Vladimir Putin "doesn't have a soul," I figured that would be the sort of thing the Russian wouldn't be pleased about. But when I called the foreign ministry the next day for comment, it was Orthodox Christmas, and I let it slide. He was asked about the remark at his press conference yesterday, however, and indeed wasn't pleased. The former KGB lieutenant colonel appeared to lash out at U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton a leading Democratic candidate for president when one reporter quoted her as saying that former KGB...

    DES MOINES - A Democratic presidential contest that had focused on high-minded qualities of leadership, experience and change has whiplashed into sharp attacks between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama over courage, character and kindergarten writings amid ever-tightening polls and the ever-closer Iowa caucuses. The intensity of the rhetoric flowing between the two rival camps underscores the stakes of Iowa's presidential deliberations, now less than a month away, for a Clinton campaign that had initially projected inevitability toward winning the nomination, only to find a strong challenge from Obama turning the leadoff contest into a tossup. "Well, now the fun part...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 4 In September 1968, Hillary Diane Rodham, role model and student government president, was addressing Wellesley College freshmen girls back when they were still called girls about methods of protest. It was a hot topic in that overheated year of what she termed confrontation politics from Chicago to Czechoslovakia. Dynamism is a function of change, Ms. Rodham said in her speech. On some campuses, change is effected through nonviolent or even violent means. Although we too have had our demonstrations, change here is usually a product of discussion in the decision-making process. Her handwritten remarks...
