border to ‘stop an invasion’

Jim Gilchrist — one of the founders of the Minutemen Project — said he’s reaching out across America to recruit at least 3,500 volunteers who will go to the border to patrol and cover the “porous areas” between San Diego and Brownsville, Texas. The campaign is called “Operation Normandy,” and it’s set for May 1, 2015, Raw Story reported. “If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be,” Mr. Gilchrist said, Raw Story reported. “However, there is one difference. We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an

Washington - The Obama administration is developing a new way for religious nonprofits that object to paying for contraceptives in their health plans to opt out, without submitting a form they say violates their religious beliefs. The government has been searching for solutions since the Supreme Court decided an evangelical college in Illinois can avoid filling out the form while the case is being appealed. That move undercut the accommodation the Obama administration had devised in hopes of resolving religious group´s objections without shifting the cost for birth control to employees. The document, known as Form 700, lets faith-affiliated

Border crisis creates discomfort for state,

TUCSON — A governor was moved to tears. A mayor fretted about disease and crime. A city councilman accused the federal government of keeping secrets. Around the country, in statehouses and mayor’s suites, in city council chambers and local police agencies, the challenge of housing tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American migrant children is forcing an emotional, uncomfortable and politically treacherous conversation on policymakers at every level. In the weeks and months since large numbers of migrant children began showing up in the Rio Grande Valley, federal officials have turned to states as far north as New England and many

Border agents: ‘This is the dream

The vice president of the National Border Patrol Council says the current border crisis is “the dream of every terrorist in the world,” with illegal immigrants being able to board American jetliners without proper identification. The union, which represents thousands of Border Patrol agents, has accused the Transportation Security Administration of letting illegals board American jetliners with only a “Notice to Appear” document — a claim the federal agency strongly denies, Fox News reported. “This is a document that could easily be forged,” union vice president Shawn Moran told Fox News. “It is simply a computer printout with a name on

Sergei Kavtaradze, an aide to rebel leader Alexander Borodai, Prime Minister of the self-declared Donetsk People´s Republic, told CNN that the two jets had been shot down by rebel fighters using a shoulder-fired missile system.

Using his verified Twitter account, horror novelist Stephen King singled out the Tea Party for a lecture about Christianity as it pertains to the ongoing crisis at the Mexican border. "Revised Tea Party Gospel," King wrote in one tweet, "´Suffer the little children come unto me. Unless they´re undocumented kids from Central America.´" As of now, though, despite his vast wealth and land holdings, there are no reports of King offering to personally care for or allow any Central American border kids to take refuge in or on his property.

You´re a United States senator from a state struggling to compete in the world economy. Your daughter runs a giant drug company with roots in your state, and the firm makes a fortune from taxpayers via Medicare and Medicaid. Everything´s cozy and connected and perfectly Washington – until your daughter renounces the firm´s U.S. citizenship to reduce its U.S. taxes. What do you do? If you´re Joe Manchin, you duck a reporter´s telephone call for six days, then emerge for an interview in which you vow to make your daughter´s actions, from this day forward, illegal. Sort of.

A veteran Somali protest singer who had become a member of parliament was shot dead in central Mogadishu on Wednesday by Islamist gunmen who blocked her car and sprayed it with bullets. Saado Ali Warsame was one of fewer than 30 women lawmakers in the 275-seat parliament, MPs said. Believed to be in her 70s, she was renowned for songs that landed her in jail when she challenged the former dictator Siad Barre before he was toppled in 1991 and Somalia plunged into conflict.

Walk down the street in New York and you´re virtually guaranteed to see several millionaires. That´s because more than 1 in every 25 New Yorkers is a millionaire, according to a study released Tuesday. The Big Apple ranks fourth in a listing of the top 20 global cities based on the portion of their populations whose net worth, excluding primary residence, tops $1 million. Altogether, 4.63% of New Yorkers, or 389,100 people, are millionaires, according to the analysis by Spear´s magazine and consulting firm WealthInsight. “New York has long been the bastion of wealth not only in America, but the world," said Oliver Williams, an analyst at

Half Years for Stealing From Charity

The longtime executive director of a prominent and politically connected Jewish charity in New York was sentenced on Wednesday to three and a half years in prison for stealing more than $1 million from the organization. The director, William E. Rapfogel, who led the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty for two decades, faced a sentence of four to 12 years when he appeared at State Supreme Court in Manhattan before Justice Larry Stephen. But under the terms of a plea agreement he accepted in April, Mr. Rapfogel paid the remaining balance of $3 million in restitution in exchange for a shorter sentence of 3 ⅓ to 10 years.

The first time Nigel Sykes tried to get money from the Seasons Pizza in Newport, he did it with a gun, forcing his way into the business through the back door. This time, Sykes is trying to get money from the pizzeria by suing the employees who tackled him and wrestled his gun away during the robbery. Sykes alleges assault in a federal civil complaint claiming the rough treatment was "unnecessary" and that as a result of the injuries he suffered during his attempted hold-up, he is due over $260,000. Sykes also claims in his suit, filed without an attorney, that after employees

With Albany rocked by a seemingly endless barrage of scandals and arrests, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo set up a high-powered commission last summer to root out corruption in state politics. It was barely two months old when its investigators, hunting for violations of campaign-finance laws, issued a subpoena to a media-buying firm that had placed millions of dollars’ worth of advertisements for the New York State Democratic Party. The investigators did not realize that the firm, Buying Time, also counted Mr. Cuomo among its clients, having bought the airtime for his campaign when he ran for governor in 2010. Word that the

The first bodies of those killed in the MH17 massacre have arrived in the Netherlands to be greeted by grieving relatives and members of the Dutch royal family. The remains of around 40 international victims of the Malaysia Airlines tragedy left Ukraine´s Kharkiv airport on a convoy of planes earlier today, ahead of a painstaking identification process which is expected to take several months. There is concern however, that as many as 95 victims--one third of the total number of passengers on board MH17--may still be missing after Dutch officials counted only 200 bodies on the morgue train on which

John Podesta, one of President Obama´s closest White House advisers, counts among his key financial supporters Hansjorg Wyss, a reclusive Swiss billionaire whose company conducted illegal human experiments that resulted in the deaths of three elderly patients. Justice Department attorneys negotiated a $23.8 million plea deal in 2011 with Synthes Inc., and Norian Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary, and sent four of its U.S. executives to prison. The money was paid to the federal government. Two of the victims died in a California hospital and the third perished in a Texas medical facility. One of the California victims was Ryoichi Kikuchi, 83,

German artist Oliver Bienkowski probably wasn’t seeking the U.S. government’s approval when he projected onto the U.S. embassy in Berlin, early last Saturday, the words “NSA in da House” beside a peace sign and an image of President Obama wearing a backwards baseball cap. But the U.S. State Department, while it disagrees with the message, says it’s okay with the act. “Well, I strongly disagree with the message in it, but support the ability of people to freely express that message,” State Dept. spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters at Tuesday’s daily press briefing.

Writing on Commentary’s website yesterday, Prof. Eugene Kontorovich denounces the Obama administration’s double standard in cutting off flights to Israel: Ben Gurion remains an extremely safe airport. The FAA had many various measures short of a flight ban, like warnings, that it could have imposed. The FAA only warns airlines about flying to Afghanistan; it does not ban them. And the FAA move comes the day after a general State Department warning about Israel–though far more people were killed in Chicago on Fourth of July weekend than in the Jewish state since the start of the Gaza campaign.

Sienna Mazone’s love affair with food began long before an aunt in Colorado sent her information about Michelle Obama’s Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and encouraged her to enter the nationwide recipe contest. Mazone, a 12-year-old from Dresden, prepares one or two meals a day for her family, and does most of the household grocery shopping. Her family has a big vegetable garden (which Sienna says has turned her into “a professional weeder”), so she has learned to make bean-lentil loaf topped with tomato sauce and, as her mother Kimberly put it, “a mean pot pie.” She has her own herb garden,

When Adolph S. Ochs purchased The New York Times in 1896 he pledged “intelligent discussion from all shades of opinion.” He bolstered his commitment with a new motto for the newspaper, promising: “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” But Ochs was also determined that the Times would never appear to be a “Jewish newspaper.” His pledges have competed for ascendancy ever since. Arthur Hays Sulzberger, who succeeded his father-in-law as publisher in 1935, feared that Zionism would “exacerbate doubts about every Jew’s ultimate loyalty.” Editors were instructed not to refer to “the Jewish people” but to “the Jewish faith.” There

Los Angeles native Max Steinberg, 24, showed his love for Israel by joining the Golani brigade, one of the most elite units of the Israel Defense Force. Now Israel has returned that love, with 30,000 Israelis turning out for the Steinberg´s funeral Wednesday at Israel´s military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. Another fallen U.S. volunteer, Sean Carmeli of Texas, received a send-off from 20,000 Israelis at his funeral earlier this week. Both Steinberg and Carmeli, were "lone soldiers," foreign volunteers with no family in Israel. The Israeli public has long embraced lone soldiers, offering their homes for weekend leave,

The attorneys general of 10 states have joined in Indiana’s appeal of a federal judge’s ruling that found the state law banning same-sex marriage unconstitutional. In a filing this week, the attorneys general of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah filed a friend of the court brief alleging it is not the judicial branch’s role to determine whether same-sex marriage should be permitted. “The moral, political, and social issues surrounding this case are profound and profoundly important,” says the brief filed by Colorado Solicitor General Michael Francisco. “However, they are distinct from the purely legal
