    Prayers needed!!! I have not been on because I've come down with a mysterious illness that has not been diagnosed. So when there's nowhere else to turn, I pray to God and beseech all to have me in your prayers and pray that the good Lord, by His will be done, to deliver in the power of healing to His faithful, but contrite servant. Amen.

    SunSentinel ^ | February 4, 2016 | Tribune News
    An explosion that blew a hole in a jetliner shortly after takeoff and left one man missing was believed to have been caused by a bomb, the pilot said Wednesday, describing how the crew calmed frightened passengers as smoke enveloped the cabin before he brought the plane back to Mogadishu's airport for an emergency landing. Residents of Balad, a town 30 kilometers (about 18 miles) north of Mogadishu, found the body of a man who might have been blown out of the Airbus 321 in Tuesday's blast, said police officer Mohamed Hassan.

    CAREFREE, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Firefighters say flames swept through an abandoned studio for fashion shoots early Sunday morning in the town of Carefree. A passerby called sheriff's deputies at about 3:30 a.m., Sunday after spotting the flames shooting out of the empty building near Pima and Cave Creek Road in Carefree. We're told the building was known as Woburn Studios, an old retail fashion studio where shoots were held. When deputies arrived, the building was engulfed in flames. Rural-Metro firefighters also responded to the scene and they have been working to put out the flames.   Crews from Scottsdale...

The mandatory debate was held today due to a petition submitted by Australian Richard Morris. The Scottish parliament must consider all petitions which propose a law change.

    Hours after sanctions on Iran were lifted as a result of Barack Obama's nuclear deal, the president and his wife Michelle enjoyed a Saturday night out at a Mexican restaurant where they celebrated the first lady's 52nd birthday. On the menu: grasshopper tacos for $5. The Washington, DC restaurant Oyamel Cocina Mexicana is a low-key choice for dinner by presidential standards. The most expensive item on the dinner menu is the roasted lamb chop for $18.50. Oyamel has a three-and-a-half star rating on Yelp.....

They have also shot wild pigs on the ranch before and none of them have been blue.

    In the video, you can see this clown singing a verse from the Qur’an: “And if they incline to peace, then incline to it and rely upon Allah” (8:61). Doubtless the Islamic State jihadis will hear this (and understand it in English), and their eyes will fill with tears as they lay down their arms and embrace James Twyman, the lovable lug, in a big bear hug. Never mind that no Islamic jurists understand that Qur’an verse as superseding the book’s many commands to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers; the very idea that some Leftist guitar picker from Portland...

"Merry Christmas and a puff puff, New Year's," said one woman who accepted a joint. Nick Dicenzo, the founder of Cannabis Can and the one responsible for handing out the free weed, said they're trying to raise awareness about homelessness and encourage people to donate to their cause. The cause? To raise money to buy several RV's and provide restrooms and showers for those in need. Dicenzo...

    Pope Francis sure does say a lot of strange things. I don’t think that any other Pope throughout history has ever called Christmas a “charade” or has suggested that for many people this Christmas “may be their last”. What in the world would cause Pope Francis to adopt such an ominous tone? Without a doubt, the leader of the largest religious organization in the entire world would be privy to information that would not be available to ordinary people like you and I. Could it be possible that he is aware of something that is coming that is going to...

Trump was surely talking off-the-cuff in his usual style — and the comments were criticized as offensive and sexist — but it was another example of his mastery in exploiting the psychological biases of conservatives who see much to dislike in today’s society and express support for Trump in the polls.

    Last week, I presented some college students with a petition urging radio stations to stop playing the holiday classic "White Christmas" because the song only focuses on "White" Christmases. This clearly makes it racially insensitive, since it completely ignores Christmases of other colors. Students were all too willing to check their privilege and take a stand against Bing Crosby's racially charged micro-aggression. Just watch.

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland, the largest particle accelerator on Earth, reported yesterday that their machine might have produced a brand new particle not included in the established laws of particle physics known as the Standard Model. Their results, based on the data collected from April to November after the LHC began colliding protons at nearly twice the...

    f your child’s middle school or high school doesn’t have “Transgender Awareness Month” yet, get ready. A whole new world of indoctrination is on the horizon. It’s tempting for conservatives to say that the transgender anti-discrimination & public accommodation laws being pushed these days by the LGBT lobby are simply “bathroom bills”. Yes, they do allow cross-dressing men to go into women’s restrooms and locker rooms. But it’s really a lot more than that. The LGBT lobby sees this as a stepping-stone -- for leveraging the concept of “transgender non-discrimination” into psychologically forcing the inversion of people’s mental and emotional...

Following a Daily Caller expose last month, King announced that he was shutting down Justice Together and returning donations given to it and another similar group...

Instead, we have the joyless scolds at PETA, and some of their not-so-bright Hollywood pals, trying to ruin the holiday the Pilgrims originated. Just in time for Thanksgiving, creator Bryan Fuller and star Gillian Anderson of NBC's cannibal-themed show Hannibal joined forces with PETA to produce an ad against...

Especially among the under-30 demographic, the United States is struggling to cope with the proliferation of dangerous perverts, drug addicts, psychotics and Ivy League liberal arts majors: A student at Columbia University is urging the school to inject more diversity into its required courses, claiming she suffered severe emotional trauma from reading too many books by and about white people....

    Over the past several months there has been a public discussion about what to do with the mass migration of Syrian refugees traveling to the West, fleeing from violence. The recent attacks in Paris have raised concerns about ISIS operatives posing as innocents fleeing from violence. Some leaders in Europe and the United States have seized upon this heinous incident to reverse the decision to welcome Syrian refugees. While these positions are understandable, they are also misguided. In fact, welcoming Syrian refugees into America helps our nation in the long fight against ISIS by undermining the terrorist group's recruitment message....

    Aside from the lurid details about Sheikh Mashoor bin Hasan Al-Salman’s bordello Paradise and his view of marriage as a master/slave relationship, he also seems to take slavery for granted. He never questions the idea that a woman might own a slave. Slavery is taken for granted in the Qur’an and Islamic law, and even though it has been abolished in Muslim countries, it persists in the shadows: many people in those countries do not accept the idea that Islamic law could be superseded by the law of the land. Sheikh Mashoor bin Hasan Al-Salman, who is a Palestinian-Jordanian...

    When I first saw this image I was overwhelmingly confused, upset. I had to find out the source of the sign, who authored, made it, what the story behind it was, but had no clue and neither anyone at Google Plus did either. I then thought of doing a Google reverse image search hoping this strategy would reveal something, anything about the sign I could possibly learn. The idea was right on because it lead me to unravel the mystery behind this bizarre imagery. (HINT: Look at the very bottom of the image to get a clue.) SNOPES provides...

    Full Title:'They might have guns, but we have flowers': Video shows Father reassuring son in wake of Paris attacks In the wake of the deaths of 129 people out enjoying a Friday night in Paris, understanding what happened has been a struggle for most adults. Explaining the atrocities to small children, then, can prove incredibly difficult - and as this video shows, has to be couched in terms they will understand. On Saturday, France's Le Petit Journal sent its reporters to speak to parents with children at the memorials that have appeared across the French capital in the wake of...

    I'm not sure this shows that he want to "microchip everybody," but it IS disturbing that he'd even be headed in the microchiping direction.

    The president of the University of Missouri, Tim Wolfe, had to go. He had to go because he benefitted from "white privilege." That, at least, was the victorious argument of the intellectual heavyweights of Concerned Student 1950, who insisted that Wolfe acknowledge his "white privilege" before leaving office in a handwritten - not typed, dammit! - letter.This raises some rather obvious questions, like: What is "white privilege"? Why is it that Tim Wolfe's "white privilege" mattered while that of Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel (salary: $3.1 million for helping men in pads hit each other) and Assistant Professor Melissa Click...
