Washington – Yet more Democrats are piling on President Barack Obama for skipping a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border during his recent trip to Texas. "I wish he would have come to the border,´ said U.S. Rep. Beto O´Rourke, a Texas Democrat on CNN´s State of the Union with Candy Crowley. "It would have sent an important message to the rest of the country about how seriously he takes this issue beyond the spending request he sent to Congress last week." Obama´s decision to skip the border comes as more and more unaccompanied immigrant minors are making their way in

Qatar plans to buy US Patriot missile batteries and Apache attack helicopters in an arms deal worth about $11 billion, senior Pentagon officials said Monday. The sale would provide Qatar with roughly ten radars and 34 launchers for Patriot systems designed to knock out incoming missiles, as well as 24 Apache helicopters and Javelin anti-tank missiles. Qatar was investing in missile defense systems to counter the threat across the Gulf from Iran, which has built up its missile arsenal, officials said. Qatar's minister of state for defense, Major General Hamad bin Ali al-Attiyah, committed to the sale in a signing ceremony Monday in Washington after talks

GAZA CITY - The Palestinian Hamas movement said on Monday it would not end hostilities with Israel without concessions by the Jewish state and that no serious efforts towards a truce had been made. "Talk of a ceasefire requires real and serious efforts, which we haven´t seen so far," Hamas MP Mushir al-Masri told AFP in Gaza City. Masri said Hamas would only negotiate on the basis of a set of concessions it wants to see Israel agree to. Those include the lifting of Israel´s eight-year blockade on the Gaza Strip, the opening of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt and the

Bastille Day! A time to remember
the ´magazine of wisdom´ that

Bastille Day! A day to remind ourselves yet again of the age-old formula that Revolution equals Political Inexperience times Zeal times Stupid Theory times Testosterone. Or R = PIZST2, if you prefer. The French Revolution — in which virtually all the revolutionary leaders were men under 40 — makes the point perfectly. But you can try the same game with revolutions of your own choice, and in the privacy of your home. At such a time, one’s thoughts turn inevitably — or at least mine do — to Burke, scourge of the Jacobins. You will doubtless know his magnificent lines on Marie

WASHINGTON — Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant who spent nearly five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan, was returned to regular duty Monday with a desk job that makes him available to Army investigators for questioning about his disappearance in 2009. In a brief statement, the Army said Bergdahl is now assigned to U.S. Army North at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston in Texas, the same base where he has been decompressing and recuperating from the effects of his lengthy captivity. His exact administrative duties were not immediately disclosed, but a Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, said

The grainy images of blindfolded hostages being led out of its imposing doors by a mob of baying Islamic revolutionaries are among the most enduring of the 20th century. Thirty-five years later, the former American embassy in Tehran looks more like a sleepy university campus than the “nest of spies” of Iranian propaganda, or the training school for militants it has since become. Behind its walls, though, lies the black museum of Iran’s revolution.

Jerusalem - Israel is to indict three Jewish extremists with murder over the brutal killing of a Palestinian teenager, officials said Monday, as it emerged their initial target was an eight-year-old child.

Nadine Gordimer, the South African writer whose literary ambitions led her into the heart of apartheid to create a body of fiction that brought her a Nobel Prize in 1991, died on Sunday in Johannesburg. She was 90. Her family announced her death in a statement. Ms. Gordimer did not originally choose apartheid as her subject as a young writer, she said, but she found it impossible to dig deeply into South African life without striking repression. And once the Afrikaner nationalists came to power in 1948, the scaffolds of the apartheid system began to rise around her and could not be

Assignment Asking Students Whether
The Holocaust Was Real Results
In Disturbing Answers And Grades
Independent Journal Review, by Caroline Schaeffer    Original Article

Approximately 2,000 eighth graders in the Rialto, CA, school district received a shocking in-class essay assignment in May, which led to an outcry from the community and a public apology from district administrators. The assignment asked students to discuss whether the Holocaust “was an actual event in history,” or whether it was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” the San Bernadino Sun reports. After the justified outrage ensued, district administrators insisted that not one single student had argued against the reality of the Holocaust. But the San Bernadino Sun, after sifting through hundreds of student

(Video) President Obama said that he is done running for higher office, and that means he can tell us the truth now. From a speech he gave in Austin, Texas late last week: “I’m just telling the truth now. I don’t have to run for office again, so I can just, you know, let her rip.” Yes, he really said that – effectively meaning he wasn’t being totally straightforward before he got elected (see: Politifact’s “Lie of the Year” about keeping your health plan). Just for kicks, he threw in a line about being “really not that partisan of a

According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen. While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate

President Barack Obama’s handling of the Central American immigration crisis isn’t selling well in New Mexico, according to a Journal flash poll. More than half of the registered New Mexico voters surveyed — 55 percent — said they disapproved of the president’s handling of the situation. Only 28 percent said they approved and 16 percent were unsure. Tens of thousands of immigrants from Central America have recently entered the U.S. illegally, many of them children, and many reportedly fleeing violence in their own countries. Obama’s response has been e volving. But last week, just before the Journal flash poll was conducted, he asked

Bill Ayers’ recent appearance on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News program appears to be part of a systematic campaign to whitewash the activities of the communist terrorists who were murdering policemen and FBI agents during the 1960s and 70s, and to set the stage for their release and rehabilitation. Kelly was unprepared for the interview and failed to consult prominent experts on the case, such as former FBI agent Max Noel. “I’m extremely disappointed, as are a number of us who actually worked the WUO [Weather Underground Organization] case on a daily basis, in your attempt to ‘confront him’ without availing yourself

Fred Thompson´s political career dates back to Watergate. Since, he has been a U.S. Senator and presidential candidate. He now does triple duty in talk radio, as a columnist and as a respected character actor; a profession he´s enjoyed success in since 1987. In a Hollywood Reporter interview about his upcoming film "Persecuted," which opens in 600 theatres this Friday, Thompson admits things are tough for Republicans in Hollywood -- even for a veteran like himself: Is it tough to be a Republican actor in Hollywood? It´s a tough business for everybody, but if you happen to run across a particular moviemaker who´s

The Reagan Roots of Reform Conservatism

There’s a movement sweeping the land, and if you want to call it “reform conservatism,” I agree that it’s good marketing. It promises a freshness and idealism that are appealing. What is reform conservatism? Let’s quote from one of its key documents (emphases added): Republicans . . . have always taken the side of the individual, whose freedoms are threatened by the big government that Democratic [ideas have] spawned. Our case for the individual is stronger than ever. A defense of the individual against government was never more needed. And we will continue to mount it. But we will redefine and broaden
