The semi-official Fars news agency and other outlets say 16 workers survived Wednesday’s cave-in, including six who were taken to the hospital for treatment. Rescuers are still searching for one worker. …
  • The Great Catholic Cave-In that Wasn’t

    National Review ^ | 10/14/2014 | George Weigel
    For the better part of a half century, the New York Times, and similarly situated purveyors of news and opinion, have eagerly awaited the Great Catholic Cave-In: that blessed moment when, at long last, the Catholic Church, like many other Christian communities, would concede that the sexual revolution had gotten it right all along and would adjust its teaching and practice to suit. A Times “breaking story” on October 13, under the headline “Vatican Signals More Tolerance Toward Gays and Remarriage,” might have struck the unwary or uninformed (or those equally committed to the Times agenda in these matters) as...
  • Journalists guide to islam called cave in to political correctness

    A "how-to" guide published by a prominent journalism school to help reporters covering Islam-related issues is under fire from critics who say it sacrifices the First Amendment to political correctness. "Islam for Journalists,” an online guide from Washington State University, says coverage of the Muslim world can be fair, yet inoffensive without compromising journalistic principles. Yet it pointedly condemns publication of images of Muhammed, an act which is forbidden by the Koran, and seems to equate it with violence carried out in the name of Islam.

  • Sens. Cruz, Lee say they won't block deal

    Sens. Cruz, Lee say they won't block deal By Mike Lillis - 10/16/13 12:38 PM ET Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee said Wednesday that they won't try to block the bipartisan deal to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling. "The timing of the vote will make no difference to the outcome," Cruz (R-Texas) said. "I have no intention of delaying the vote." Cruz and Lee (R-Utah) had spearheaded the campaign to attach ObamaCare language to any new budget bills, and had pushed their colleagues to take a hard-line stance. But the pair emerged from a meeting of...

    The basic framework of the deal Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid have hammered out is coming to light. The provision the GOP is crowing over — that the Obama Administration will check the income levels of those who receive a subsidy — is already the law. Meanwhile, the GOP will let the rest of the year proceed above sequester level spending, give the unions another carve out of Obamacare, and extend the debt limit to February. I’m sure at the last minute they’ll also delay the medical device tax so it looks like Harry Reid caved on something. Really, it’ll...

    If Boehner and his House RINOs Cave In, and do NOT defund the Communist Law Obamacare, have they led us into the no escape, Communist Box Canyon called Obamacare? If Obamacare is not defunded by Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, then a name change is in order. Suggestions are as follows: BOEHNERCARE, or RINOCARE. Note: Capital letters are preferred to remind us of the Capital offense these sorry RINOs will have done to our descendants. In this way we can more accurately be reminded of who the real enemies of Freedom of Choice really are: Boehner and his House RINOs. What...

    House Republicans say they'll go for a temporary extension of the debt ceiling in exchange for a "real commitment" from President Obama and Democrats to talk about the nation's pressing problems. At a news conference Thursday morning, House Speaker John Boehner said Republicans are ready to "move half way -- half way to what (Obama's) demanded." [snip] - See more at:

    Updated 12:28 p.m. | House Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters Thursday morning that he intends to go to conference on the budget, signaling the end to one of the year’s greatest impasses between the two parties and chambers. “We’re gonna start negotiations,” Ryan said. “I intend to go to conference. “I think when Leader Pelosi said that they would remove all the motions to instruct, that was a good-faith effort to get serious negotiations going,” he continued. “We intend to go to conference on that. As you know, a budget resolution is not sufficient to do all...

    House Republican leaders will seek a conference committee with Senate Democrats in a last-ditch effort to find a compromise on a short-term spending bill, a GOP aide confirmed late Monday night. The GOP proposal to meet comes after a days of sending bills back and forth to each other with no effect. The House has sent the Senate proposals to undermine ObamaCare, while the Senate continues to insist on a spending resolution that doesn't touch ObamaCare. A conference committee would give a members of both chambers to meet face to face to decide how to move forward on a spending...

    The last non-Socialist Leader in the US Federal Government caved in last night to the Socialist-Democrat Wing of the once proud Democrat Party. Yep, ol' Boehner-Head finally cut all pretense of protecting the TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY folks from the terrible damage done to America by the Socialist-Democrats led by Chairman Obama, "Bottleneck" Reid and of course, certifiably brain-dead, Ex-Bottleneck, Princess Nancy. All of this could have been avoided if Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell had not joined the Socialist-Democrat Party and caved in to "Bottleneck" Reid on the payroll 2/3 tax "deal." Pay 2 month taxes on a quarterly basis. Yep, both Mitch...

    Congressional Republicans may resurrect ObamaCare from the dead. You read that right… Republicans in Congress may actually fall for a political trap being set by Barack Obama designed to breathe new life into ObamaCare. That’s why it’s imperative we take decisive and immediate action to stop them. As reported by The New York Times: "President Obama said Sunday that he would convene a half-day bipartisan health care session at the White House to be televised live this month, a high-profile gambit that will allow Americans to watch as Democrats and Republicans try to break their political impasse." Of course, you...

    TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Pope Benedict XVI called for the establishment of an independent Palestinian homeland immediately after he arrived in Israel Monday, a stance that could put him at odds with his hosts on a trip aimed at easing strains between the Vatican and Jews. The pope also took on the delicate issue of the Holocaust, pledging to "honor the memory" of the 6 million Jewish victims of the Nazi genocide at the start of his five-day visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories. Benedict urged Israelis and Palestinians to "explore every possible avenue" to resolve their differences...

    U.S. Senate Republicans are not planning to try and use procedural maneuvers to delay passage of a proposed $789 billion economic stimulus bill, the party's leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, said on Wednesday. McConnell said there was a widespread feeling in the minority party that they "ought to vote and move on." He spoke after congressional negotiators said they had reached a deal on the massive package of spending and tax cuts to try and rescue the flailing economy.

    VIRGINIA BEACH -- Monday, Virginia Beach Police dropped obscenity charges stemming from two poster advertisements for Abercrombie & Fitch at Lynnhaven Mall. Police confiscated the ads Saturday, saying they violated the city's obscenity law because some of the models were partially nude. One showed a group of shirtless male models and one has his jeans low enough to show a part of his buttocks. Police say they received several complaints about the ads and had met with local store officials, in which police informed them they were in violation of the code. The window displays went up in 363 stores...
