    Three women who were kidnapped in Cleveland and locked up for over nine years are speaking out on their harrowing captivity, seven years after their miraculous escape. For years kidnapper Ariel Castro held three women – Amanda Berry, 33, Gina DeJesus, 29, and Michelle Knight, 38, - captive in his home after abducting them between 2002 and 2004. After years of abuse where they were chained, starved, tortured, and raped they were finally able to escape on May 6, 2013 when Berry managed to leave the home and called 911 from a neighbor’s phone. 'He was always there watching every...

    Police in California discovered a horrifying scene of 12 siblings “shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks” inside their California home after a 13th kid escaped and called 911. The siblings — ranging in age from 2 to 29 — were allegedly being held captive in putrid conditions by their parents in a home in Perris, Calif., about 30 miles south of San Bernardino, according to KABC-TV. The discovery was made after a 17-year-old girl escaped from the hell house on Sunday Morning and called cops on a cell phone she managed to sneak out with her. Police soon...

    For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him. I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early. Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will...

    This was a question asked of the CNN audience by Wolf Blitzer Thursday afternoon--the day after an experienced trainer, 40 year old Dawn Brancheau, was killed in a tragic accident by an orca whale at the Orlando SeaWorld Park. The response to the polling question, “should animals be used for human entertainment”--was answered predominately “no.” One person wrote of how he was mesmerized by a show at the aquarium, when he was a small boy. Then later, as an adult, he saw a similar show, with dolphins and whales and he felt physically ill for the animals and the life...
  • Why McCain's captivity matters

    You would think it would be simple, but I forget that the concepts of Duty, Honor & Country are dirty words to the left/press. None who have served, well none with more than 4 months in the motor pool, wonder what John McCain proved to us. We know that a man who would refuse to be released ahead of others and allow the enemy a propaganda victory definitely understands and stays true to those three pillars. The clowns on the left toss out the straw man that he learned nothing about foreign policy there. Well I disagree, he learned at...

    FORT HUACHUCA — America’s heroes were honored at a special event on Wednesday, including the many who now live in this community. The annual Bring A Vet To Lunch, presented by the Greater Sierra Vista Area Chamber of Commerce and its Military Affairs Committee, saw more than 180 people fill the Thunder Mountain Activity Center. Among them were veterans aged 80-plus, as well as active-duty soldiers still in their teens, and community and military leaders. But the special guest was retired Lt. Col. Barry Bridger, an Air Force veteran who spent more than six years as a prisoner of war...
  • Former POWs Blame Kerry for Captivity

    PHILADELPHIA - Former U.S. prisoners of war who blamed their years of captivity in Vietnam on activists such as John Kerry are the only voices in a documentary that Sinclair Broadcasting has decided not to air in its entirety. Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee, was a decorated Navy lieutenant who returned from Southeast Asia disillusioned. He organized anti-war protests in Washington and testified against the conflict before the Senate. The 42-minute film, titled, "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal," is a one-sided view of Kerry's anti-war activities. It consists mostly of interviews with U.S. prisoners of war who survived imprisonment...
