    Cataleya woke up with the knife on her neck. Her father QA wanted to kill the then 17-year-old because of her homosexuality. She barely survived. "He yelled, 'Are you gay? Are you gay?' and drew the knife through my throat. " With these words, Cataleya described in October 2019 how her father tried to kill her. Cataleya was still a man at the time and only 17 years old. Because of the serious injuries, Cataleya, then called Seran, had to be placed in an artificial coma. With a lot of will to live and luck, she survived her father's knife...

    San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, 71, says he’s “embarrassed as a white person” that a white man could allegedly murder a black man, referencing George Floyd, and suggesting such “lynchings” are commonplace in 2020 America. “In a strange, counterintuitive sort of way, the best teaching moment of this recent tragedy, I think, was the look on the officer’s face,” Popovich said in a video posted by the Spurs, according to The Associated Press. “For white people to see how nonchalant, how casual, just how everyday-going-about-his job, so much so that he could just put his left hand in his...

    SAN DIEGO — The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan. Mitt Romney looks out the windows of his beach house here in La Jolla...He devours news from 2,600 miles away in Washington about the "fiscal cliff" negotiations, shaking his head and wondering what if. Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There's no aide to make his peanut butter and honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and emailing his CEO buddies, who've been swooping in and out of La...
  • Obama's Euro-Crisis Lecture 'Pitiful and Sad'

    US President Obama has given the Europeans a harsh lecture on the dangers of their ongoing debt crisis. Offended by the unsolicited advice, Europeans have suggested the US get its own house in order first. Obama's remarks were "arrogant" and "absurd," German commentators say on Wednesday. Europeans are well aware of the seriousness of their ongoing debt crisis. But they don't, it seems, like to receive lectures from other countries -- especially the United States, which is struggling to deal with its own mountain of debt.

    Italy's top disaster official blasted the U.S.-led relief effort in Haiti as a "pathetic" failure that is turning a national tragedy into a "vanity show for the television cameras." Guido Bertolaso, the head of Italy's Civil Protection Agency, told Italian television on Sunday that the U.S. military "tends to confuse military intervention with emergency intervention," and that despite the presence of 13,000 U.S. troops there, "no one is giving orders." He said there is a danger that aid will be lost by the "inefficient" operation. Bertolaso threw darts at targets ranging from former President Bill Clinton to the United Nations,...

    You can't be loved and adored by everybody, but if you're President Barack Obama and it concerns the media, you can come awfully close. In an interview on (video) with the network Washington correspondent John Harwood, Obama reflected on the media coverage he has received to date. Harwood asked the president to respond to the claim that lack of media criticism has allowed him to "hurt" the country. "When you and I spoke in January, you said, I observed that you haven't gotten much bad press," Harwood said. "You said, ‘It's coming.' Media critics would say not only has it...

    For all of the dire warnings and pre-election commotion about the impact of a Democratic majority in Congress, the fact is that — now that it is upon us — it can do little or nothing but harass the administration. There is no real danger of any legislative action emerging from this Congress. Yes, the president has a veto the Democrats cannot override, but nothing will ever make it as far as the desk at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., are just spinning their wheels. In the Senate, there is...

    Conservative radio talk show host G. Gordon Liddy, who was sent to jail for his role in the Watergate scandal, said former FBI Deputy Director F. Mark Felt is a "flawed individual" who was pressured to confess his identity as the confidential source known as "Deep Throat" because his family wanted money. Liddy told the Fox News Channel's John Gibson Wednesday that as a law enforcement officer if Felt had evidence of a crime and the participants of that crime, "he was duty bound to take that to the grand jury." "That's what he should have done rather than leak...

    I really am worried about this website. Don't you all see that this is exactly what Satan wants? All of us to say absolutley terrible things about this guy? I really think he should suffer the consequesnces for what he has done, and I hope that the victim can come out of this with a lot of help from Christian counseling so he can make others more aware of the problem, but what I feel we should all be doing as Christians is prayng for Larry Lance Carlton. He is obviously very troubled and maybe even possesed. The hope is...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008.

Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...

    They make unlikely combatants, a grieving immigrant mother from Queens and a second-generation West Coast mogul who boasts of providing "millions of firearms" to lower-income groups. But Joan Truman Smith — a persistent voice for justice in the murder of her daughter Anita Smith in the Wendy's massacre two years ago — is taking on the man she says also played a role in the stunning crime. She has filed a federal lawsuit against Bruce Jennings, whose family holds an empire built on the manufacture of small-caliber Saturday night specials, as well as the sale of cheap .38-caliber and 9-mm....
