    Many are the facts that the national media refuses to address. One such fact is that concerning the pattern of violence that’s emerged on the part of the supporters of self-declared “socialist,” Bernie Sanders. In addition to the fact that they conflict wildly with those held, traditionally, by Americans generally, socialists hold moral beliefs that demand the deployment of the overt coercion of others of those who don’t share those values.

    The Democratic warhorse Dianne Feinstein is warning that Bernie Sanders’ campaign against Hillary Clinton could turn the party’s convention in Philadelphia into the kind of disaster that erupted in Chicago in 1968. “It worries me a great deal,” she tells CNN. I can understand why. I was there. Covering the Democrats’ 1968 convention for one of America’s greatest newspapers, the Anniston (Ala.) Star, I saw a bitterly divided party, riven by the Vietnam War and Jim Crow, met with violence in the streets. The convention finally handed up, in Vice President Hubert Humphrey, one of the finest liberals in history....

    Why Sanders is lying when he says he doesn’t approve of violence perpetrated on his behalf. The reason Bernie Sanders pointedly refuses to condemn his supporters for throwing chairs and making death threats against Democrat officials at and after the party’s Nevada convention is because he doesn’t actually object to their violent behavior. Sanders blew off pressure from Democrat leaders to disavow ugly tactics by his supporters at the event Saturday evening, calling the complaints “nonsense” and arguing that his supporters were not treated with “fairness and respect.” The pro-violence radicalism among Sanders supporters comes straight from the top

    It was the film that traumatised a generation of children, with its much-loved rabbit characters slain on screen in graphic and memorable scenes. But the story of Watership Down is to be remade for a new era, as programme-makers promise to tone down its most brutal images. The BBC has teamed up with Netflix for one of the most expensive mini-series ever made for the small screen, and the first animated four-part drama of its kind. The new version stars the voices of James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult as Hazel and Fiver, Sir Ben Kingsley as General Woundwort and Star...

Sitting right across the aisle were two well-dressed, young, absolutely moronic parents who had their son sitting between them. He could not have been more than five. Stone’s ultra-intense Vietnam War masterpiece had the audience thoroughly keyed up. Roaring artillery and wholesale slaughter were coming from every direction without warning. The poor little...

    An attempt by President Obama to promote his 'My Brother's Keeper' initiative, which aims to keep youths of color out of trouble, came to a farcical end when rapper Rick Ross's ankle bracelet - which he received on a kidnapping and assault charge - went off. Obama had invited a bevy of hip-hop heavyweights, including Niki Minaj, Common, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T and DJ Khaled, to the meeting at the White House Friday. But none of them - least of all Ross himself - expected the ankle bracelet to interrupt the president, according to TMZ.

The first is the issue of violence at his rallies and the second is his being “Nazified” by some elements. Not to be namby-pamby or perceived as a member of the chorus, but some of the things that come out of Trump’s mouth about the protesters is just...

The two argued to the point, according to police, where Davis bit off the tip of the woman's pinkie finger and swallowed it. Police have not yet been able to recover the fingertip.

    For a second straight day, opposition protesters erected burning roadblocks and shattered windows in a section of Haiti's capital on Tuesday to press for new elections less than a week before a January 24 presidential and legislative runoff. A few thousand people joined the demonstration in downtown Port-au-Prince, marching through narrow streets and occasionally chanting: "The revolution has started, get your gun ready." Young men threw rocks, smashing windshields and the windows of a bank. They also overturned vendors' stalls to block law enforcement vehicles. Associated Press journalists saw one injured protester with what appeared to be a bullet wound....

    Most of the postings concerning Islam on the internet are about the atrocities being committed around the world. But we need to take more time to explain WHY these things happen. Even though the violent commands are in the Quran, many western Muslims discount them, brushing them off as not literal. So it is necessary to go to the hadith to see how Muhammad himself interpreted these things. This needs to be communicated widely to Muslims themselves to bring them out of the dark. Like many Christians who have not studied the Bible, most Muslims have never really studied the...

    Appeals for African American leaders to step up and protect unborn babies from abortion are growing louder and louder this month as more pro-life advocates call on politicians to end their support of the abortion industry and instead defend the vulnerable. The latest appeal came from one of America’s most prominent black families. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and a pro-life advocate, wrote an open letter to President Barack Obama this week, asking him to end abortion violence against unborn children. CNS News published King’s letter on Jan. 12: … Sir, you recently tweeted:...

    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 we're not allowed to do anything about it," the Marine's 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 it's...
  • Palestinian wave of violence marked by increased female role

    While battling Israel was once a role restricted to Palestinian men and boys, the current wave of violence has seen an unprecedented spike in female involvement. And where the few women who did engage in attacks in the past were typically underprivileged females seeking redemption after being rejected by their families, the attackers are now largely ideological, educated women from supportive homes. Palestinians consider the trend to be a combination of rising Islamist zeal, the growing role of women in the conservative society and the brewing desperation of a younger generation with few prospects.

    resident Barack Obama and his fellow progressives like to talk about "gun violence," as if it guns themselves stroll about American cities and commit acts of violence, unassisted by human beings. The silly term is meant to hide the obvious fact that it is indeed criminals using those guns, who comprise the problem, not the firearms acting alone. To deflect attention from terrorists, including Islamic terrorists, whom the president urgently feels must not be named, seems even more important to them. It took the Administration days to fully admit what everyone knew: the mass shooting in San Bernardino was...
