Unaccompanied Minors Released on
Lavish Vacation Spot, Virgin Islands

HOUSTON, Texas -- Several unaccompanied minors who entered the U.S. illegally have been relocated to and released where many U.S. citizens cannot afford to bring their own families on vacation: the Virgin Islands. Subsequent to being caught illegally crossing the Texas-Mexico border, more than 30,000 unaccompanied minors have been released by federal agents in states across the U.S. While the majority of the minors have been set free in large states like Texas, Virginia, and California, a Health and Human Services (HHS) document shows that four were set free in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The picturesque Virgin Islands, located in the

US sent Latin youth
undercover in anti-Cuba ploy

Washington - Fernando Murillo was typical of the young Latin Americans deployed to Cuba by a U.S. agency to work undercover. He had little training in the dangers of clandestine operations — or how to evade one of the world´s most sophisticated counter-intelligence services. Their assignment was to recruit young Cubans to anti-government activism, which they did under the guise of civic programs, including an HIV prevention workshop. Murillo was instructed to check in every 48 hours and was provided with a set of security codes. "I have a headache," for instance, meant the Costa Rican thought the Cubans were

Plagiarism is a big deal. It is an act of deception that has serious consequences - not the least of these being a loss of trust. U.S. Sen. John Walsh, D-Mont., says he did not intentionally plagiarize the research paper he submitted to Army War College in 2007. The paper, which is a requirement for a master’s degree, was thoroughly analyzed by the New York Times and posted online as well for readers to draw their own conclusions. The Times’s analysis - and conclusion - pointed out that Walsh’s paper did not just incorrectly attribute a few statements. It lifted entire passages

A bungling Alabama burglar broke into a Vietnam War vet´s home and smoked his dead wife´s ashes - because he thought they were drugs. The still-at-large bandit reportedly tried to blaze up the remains of Phillip McMullen´s spouse Christine after finding them in a plastic box. But, after not liking the taste, he threw them up under a tool box. McMullen - who was staying with friends out of town when his Citronelle home was broken into - also had fishing rods, a knife and a chainsaw stolen in the raid. And the former soldier said it had made him

Jacksonville, Fla. - Residents at a Westside apartment complex where a 12-year-old murder suspect used to live said they were terrified of him. Sharron Townsend was arrested Thursday on a murder charge after police said he randomly shot and killed a 54-year-old homeless man in June. Townsend used to live in an apartment off Indian Lakes Court. "No good. I don´t have anything good to say about him," said one woman who didn´t want to be identified. Neighbors said Townsend was always in trouble, starting fights and even begging on the corner, pretending to be homeless.

Nearly a quarter-mile off the road, Thomas J. Bergstrom, 51, built a 20-foot-by-20-foot compound of pallets and bright blue tarps. A transient, that´s where he hooked up a TV and watched it from his scruffy recliner near 100 NE Pine Island Road. Anthony Cashdollar found him Saturday morning, stretched out on the ground, blood congealing on his arm and mouth, just feet from the recliner. "I was so shocked, I just sat my hand on his back," Cashdollar, 18, said Sunday night, adding that he called "Tommy, Tommy, Tommy. ... Then it hit me that Tommy was dead."

The Obscure Drug With

An obscure injectable medication made from pigs’ pituitary glands has surged up the list of drugs that cost Medicare the most money, taking a growing bite out of the program’s resources.

In Blow to Obama, Court Orders

In response to a lawsuit filed by government watchdog Judicial Watch, a federal court rejected legal arguments by the Obama administration and ordered the Justice Department to release certain information about “Fast and Furious” documents it is withholding from Congress and the public. Analysts and lawmakers have long argued that Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, the latter of whom is still in criminal contempt of Congress, are trying to cover-up details in the deadly “Fast and Furious” scandal, which saw the Obama administration put thousands of weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. The latest order could finally

GAZA CITY – An Israeli airstrike killed a militant leader in the Gaza Strip on Monday just before Israel began a unilateral seven-hour cease-fire for large parts of the devastated Palestinian enclave, and two attacks on Israelis in Jerusalem killed one person and injured four others, including a soldier. Palestinians accused Israel of breaking its own truce by bombarding a refu­gee camp in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, wounding at least 15 people. Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said an Arab man from East Jerusalem used a backhoe to kill an Israeli pedestrian Monday afternoon, then rammed into



Barack Obama to reporters:
´I´ll take a question´

President Barack Obama had just done the unthinkable. He took questions last week from the White House press corps — not just once, but twice. He didn’t call only on the reporters who were selected ahead of time by his senior aides. He even stuck around longer than he wanted at a briefing Friday to appease the room of shouting correspondents. “Hold on, guys. Come on. You’re not that pent up,” Obama joked. “I’ve been giving you questions lately.” This never used to happen in the Obama White House, a place so obsessed with message control that the president could go

PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands - A newly formed Hurricane Bertha swirled northward across open sea Monday after brushing the Turks & Caicos Islands and Bahamas as a tropical storm, while forecasters predicted the storm wasn´t likely to make landfall on the U.S. East Coast. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said the second hurricane of the Atlantic season also was likely to miss Bermuda while beginning to curve north-northeastward. The current forecast map predicts that the center of the storm will stay offshore as it passes wide of the U.S. East Coast, though it´s hard to precisely gauge

The University of Arkansas library has backed down from its decision to block the Washington Free Beacon from accessing its special collections archives following a month-long public uproar. The library suspended the Free Beacon’s research privileges in June after the outlet published a story based on audiotapes from university archives that included Hillary Clinton discussing her 1975 defense of a child rapist. Library officials said the Free Beacon had violated the university’s intellectual property rights by publishing the excerpts without submitting a permission-to-publish form. However, the library later acknowledged it did not

TOLEDO, Ohio— A water ban that had hundreds of thousands of people in Ohio and Michigan scrambling for drinking water has been lifted, Toledo´s mayor announced Monday. Mayor D. Michael Collins called the drinking water safe and lifted the ban at a Monday morning news conference. "Our water is safe," Collins said. "Families can return to normal life." Ohio´s fourth-largest city warned residents not to use city water early Saturday after tests at one treatment plant showed readings for microcystin above the standard for consumption, most likely from algae on Lake Erie.

The total federal debt of the U.S. government has now increased more than $7 trillion during the slightly more than five and a half years Barack Obama has been president. That is more than the debt increased under all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Bill Clinton combined, and it is more debt than was accumulated in the first 227 years of this nation´s existence--from 1776 through 2003. The total federal debt first passed the $7-trillion mark on Jan. 15, 2004, after President George W. Bush had been in office almost three years. When President Obama took office on Jan.

It is really unfortunate that, when they were being marched to the gas chambers, the Jewish victims of Nazi aggression did not contemplate the effect their deaths would have on the German death-camp guards. Certainly, they are guilty of not having found some way to protect the Nazis from the psychological consequences of being compelled to murder large numbers of human beings. Sound absurd? That is the pristine logic of the UN’s High Commissioner on Human Rights, Navi Pillay, whose term just expired. Her swan song was to accuse both Israel and the United States of human rights violations for

Here’s a wacky idea. Let’s win the war against our jihadi enemies. Yeah, it’s certainly an outside the box idea. All we hear right now – in fact, all we’ve heard for decades – is about peace processes and negotiations and ceasefires. On and on they go, one after another, always crashing on the rocks of intransigence by people who hate our allies and who hate us. Maybe we need some fresh new ideas, some outside-the-box thinking. How about we and our allies destroy our enemies? After all, the best peace plan is victory. Wait, hear me out. You know,

No shortage of dumb, offensive stuff has been written lately about Israel and Palestine, some of it in so-called respectable newspapers, some of it in blogs, some of it on social media. For example, The Times of Israel this week published piece entitled “When Genocide is permissible”. You’d think that sort of headline would be unthinkable under any circumstances. You’d think it’d be twice as unthinkable in Israel, where Jews comprise 75 per cent of the population. European Jews, remember, were themselves the victims of the Nazis’ attempt at genocide in the 1940s. The piece has since been pulled but the moral damage has been done.

On July 22, Dr. Kent Brantly woke up feeling feverish. Fearing the worst, Brantly immediately isolated himself. Nancy Writebol´s symptoms started three days later.

The lofty motto of the Environmental Protection Agency is "protecting people and the environment." In practice, however, EPA bureaucrats faithfully protect their own people and preserve the government´s cesspool of manipulation, cover-ups and cronyism. Just last week, Mark Levin and his vigilant Landmark Legal Foundation went to court to ask federal district judge Royce Lamberth to sanction the EPA "for destroying or failing to preserve emails and text messages that may have helped document suspected agency efforts to influence the 2012 presidential election." The motion is part of a larger Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

The pleasure was in the journey. Down a long, sunlit hallway. Back again, seeing friends in the bustle of the hospital’s main floor. Then, Pedene got back

Meet the lucky man who survived Ebola — the deadly disease doctors fear could be a worldwide killer. Saa Sabas contracted the virus — which has claimed more than 800 lives this year across three countries — while caring for his sick father.

Fortunately the disease was caught early and the pharmacy worker from southern Guinea in West Africa has joined only a small handful of people to survive.

Based on conversations with a dozen top Democrats, mostly members, here´s what they might write in a private letter to Obama: Dear Mr. President, We write this in a constructive spirit, knowing you´ve been dealt a difficult hand in foreign policy and face legislative gridlock at home. Yet without significant changes, the next three months could be perilous for you and our party. First, erase the F-word --

The great fear among conservatives, stoked by the actual statements of the Obama White House and one of its chief sycophants, Congress Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, is that the president will step far beyond the constitutional limits of his power and grant amnesty through executive fiat to as many as six million illegal aliens. This would be political suicide for Obama. It would be an act of brazen stupidity and it would likely not only destroy any chance his party has to retain control of the Senate but could potentially fracture his own coalition for future elections. Already Obama polls at
