There have previously been unconfirmed reports that the Temple of Bel in Palmyra had been destroyed, but solid reports could not make it out of the Isis'controlled city. Maamoun Abdulkarim, the head of the Syrian Department of Antiquities, said that although he believed there had been a large explosion at the temple, most of the site remained intact. However, UN satellite analysts have now said that almost nothing remains of the 2,000'year'old temple.

Patricia Vroom, an award'winning, veteran ICE attorney, filed the suit late last year claiming that she and other career officials were strong armed into compliance with the administration’s prosecutorial discretion immigration enforcement policy. And, to that end, Vroom charged that she was the victim of age and gender discrimination and a hostile work environment.

I speculated that Carson was a better fit than Trump for Iowa Republicans given his geniality and unfeigned social conservatism. Now, a freshly'minted Monmouth poll has Carson tied with Trump at 23 percent. According to Monmouth, this marks the first time since late July that a poll in any of the first four nominating states has not shown Trump in the lead.

Shannon Miles, 30, appeared shackled in court today and did not enter a plea in the murder of Deputy Darren Goforth, a 47'year'old father of two and 10'year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Department. Miles’ priors include disorderly conduct with a firearm and resisting arrest. He was charged in a 2012 fight at a homeless shelter and was initially found to be mentally incompetent before that was reversed and the charge was dropped.

The letter is a response to a letter Cecil Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, sent to Congressional leaders last week making charges against CMP and its founder David Daleiden. Daleiden’s letter today turns Richards’ letter against her. Daleiden tells Congressional leaders that Richards’ letter is an admission that “that multiple Planned Parenthood affiliates have recently received payments of $45 to $60 ‘per tissue specimen’ from various Tissue PETA slams Obama for joining ‘sexist, speciesist’ Bear Grylls Tue, 01 48 2015 02:48:23 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=842935 e8866eaade92729b6b18f32f0bfde5573f9d4831 Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar Posted By: KarenJ1- Tue, 01 48 2015 02:48:23 GMT PETA has issued a harsh rebuke of President Obama’s plans to trek into the Alaskan wilderness in an episode of “Running Wild” with famed survivalist Bear Grylls. NBC announced Monday that the president will be joining Mr. Grylls to receive a crash course in survival techniques and the effects of climate change in the area. PETA argues that there are “far better ways” to raise awareness than to appear on Mr. Grylls’ “disgusting, degenerate” show. “Bear Grylls’ shows are known as the bottom of the barrel in demeaning sexist, speciesist, and who knows what other ‘'ist’ TV reality shows — Network Media, Black Leaders Sit Idly By as #BlackLivesMatter Rhetoric Grows Dangerous Tue, 01 35 2015 02:35:09 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=842934 1eb9e36c4a3764b34739e95866a346c883f0e4cd Mediaite, by Joe Concha Posted By: KarenJ1- Tue, 01 35 2015 02:35:09 GMT “Pigs in a blanket.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis will have to choose whether to issue marriage licenses, defying her Christian conviction, or continue to refuse them, defying a federal judge who could pummel her with fines or order that she be hauled off to jail.

Md Uddin of Corona lured the young girl into the Fultoli Jame Masjid Mosque and then fondled her over and under her shirt while hugging her, according to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. After asking the girl ´Does this feel good?´ and ´Do you like this?´, the suspect allegedly kissed the victim on the forehead and cheeks and said: ´Don´t tell anyone about this.´ Obama calls widow of slain Texas deputy, calls shooting ‘an affront to civilized society’ Tue, 01 12 2015 02:12:24 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=842931 84404ad76fb0f2eff54b1b4236aa398d03ec77f9 Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang Posted By: KarenJ1- Tue, 01 12 2015 02:12:24 GMT President Obama on Monday condemned last week’s cold'blooded murder of a Texas sheriff’s deputy, calling the killing “an affront to civilized society.” Mr. Obama called Kathleen Goforth, the widow of Harris Count Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth, while on Air Force One en route to Alaska. Deputy Goforth was shot 15 times while pumping gas Friday night, and investigators believe he was targeted simply because he was a law enforcement officer. On behalf of the American people, I offered Mrs. Goforth my condolences, and told her that Michelle and I would keep her and her family in our prayers.

It charges the RNC is standing by CNN, the “Clinton News Network.” Fiorina and her campaign spoke to numerous media outlets within the past several days about the current CNN debate rules and how the way CNN is calculating the top 10 candidates is grossly unfair to Fiorina, as it could keep her off the main stage yet again even after her standout performance in In Cancun, the U.S. Gets Played Tue, 01 35 2015 01:35:07 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=842929 dfa7df8ffa3bf7b7f438a45188132aa8d35ada81 Weekly Standard, by Ted R. Bromund Posted By: Desert Fox- Tue, 01 35 2015 01:35:07 GMT Cancun The Conference of States Parties—the first meeting of nations that have ratified the controversial Arms Trade Treaty (ATT)—wrapped up in Cancun on Thursday. Because it’s wisely not ratified the ATT, the U.S. was there as an observer. So was I. And on Thursday, I got to observe as the U.S. got played. Nominally, the ATT is about controlling the illicit arms traffic, and about encouraging nations to show responsibility in whom they sell arms to. On its face, that’s a sensible idea. What isn’t so sensible is believing that a treaty will force nations to do what they evidently don’t want to Ted Cruz Reacts to Vilification of Police: ‘Coming from the Top — All the Way to the President of the United States’ Tue, 01 14 2015 01:14:42 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=842927 811175940ef492bca9644e8bf3fec07075b95004 Breitbart Big Government, by Alex Swoyer Posted By: Desert Fox- Tue, 01 14 2015 01:14:42 GMT Following the shooting of a sheriff in Houston, Texas by a black man as well as chants from Black Lives Matter protesters advocating violence against police, GOP presidential candidate Sen.

McKinley to Denali. Given President McKinley´s record on racial healing, fiscal discipline, global power and disaster response, Obama´s got some timing. Ohioans were right to take President Obama´s unilateral changing of the name of the 20,200'foot peak to Mount Denali as an insult. The mountain, North America´s highest, was named after one of America´s best presidents, William McKinley, a native of Canton, Ohio. Now, after nearly 100 years, at the current president´s whim, the mountain will be called by its Native American name.

And if there are, it´s not true that Iran will be inspecting itself. And even if Iran will be inspecting itself, the side deals are a separate arrangement and not part of the nuclear deal, and the issue they´re intended to address — past Iranian nuclear weapons work — doesn´t matter. What´s going on here? First, we know there are secret side deals that were not mentioned in the Obama administration´s rollout of the Iran nuclear agreement.

La Mastra V Posted By: Desert Fox- Tue, 01 59 2015 12:59:57 GMT Millennials born from the early 1980s to the early 2000s are the most ethnically diverse and educated generation in American history, but also the most naive and idealistic — a formula for international instability as they start to take the reins. As seen by the election of unconventional leaders such as President Obama and the popularity of candidates like Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, it´s become clear that millennials hold a different worldview. The faint'hearted foreign'policy positions that these officials and others have taken has created a more volatile world that encourages the growth of terrorist groups and supporting states.

But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side. The fire from the right was almost as fierce as that from the left. "It´s not conservative and it´s not realistic and it does not embrace American values," said Jeb Bush. Sen. Lindsey Graham called it "absolute gibberish." Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called the idea "crackpot" and "morally obscene."

I bet nobody saw that coming. After all, Perkins didn’t even back Fiorina when she was chief executive of HP. In 2004, he voted along with the rest of the company’s board to fire her. Now he thinks she should be the whole nation’s CEO – or so he said in a full'page Fiorina Super PAC ad in last week’s New York Times.

This allows the Road Map to succeed with 15 to 20% support for Jeb – depending on primary state location. However, when the plan was constructed it’s obvious they never anticipated a Donald Trump candidacy. The original plan was created to defeat Ted
