The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.”

BROWNSVILLE — At the groundbreaking ceremony Monday for SpaceX´s commercial spaceport on the Texas Gulf coast, the founder of the aerospace company said the survival of mankind may hang on colonization of other planets. The company´s future commercial orbital spaceport in Boca Chica, near Brownsville, could be a key player in the race to Mars, said Elon Musk, who is the CEO. “I´m an optimist,” Musk said. “I wouldn´t have gotten into the rocket business otherwise.” Musk said SpaceX expects to begin construction on the site by mid-2015 and launch at least one commercial flight per month by late 2016.

The Islamic State militant group released a new, chilling message that threatened the United States and its allies and urged Muslims to take violent action against "disbelievers." In the audio recording, a spokesman for the Islamic State, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, warned "that the matter is more dangerous than you have imagined." "If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, kill him

EMILY´s List, an organization dedicated to electing women who oppose legal restrictions on abortion and support taxpayer-funding of abortion, held a fundraiser in New York City today, but one notable name was dropped from the list of speakers: Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky´s Democratic senatorial candidate. (Photo) As the screenshot above (which was sent along by a Republican source) shows, EMILY´s List had touted Grimes as a speaker at the event, but she is no longer listed as a speaker. A spokeswoman for Grimes did not reply to emails asking why the Democratic candidate canceled her appearance at the event.

A Mother in Jail for Helping Her

On Sept. 12th, Jennifer Whalen, a 39-year-old mother of three in the rural town of Washingtonville, Pa., went to jail to begin serving a 9-to-18-month sentence. Whalen’s crime was, in effect, ordering pills online that her older daughter took in the first several weeks of an unplanned pregnancy, when she was 16, to induce a miscarriage. The medication was a combination of mifepristone (formerly called RU-486) and misoprostol. The drugs have been available from a doctor with a prescription in the United States since 2000 and are used around the world to induce miscarriage. Recent research increasingly suggests that early

New York - The U.S. Treasury Department on Monday announced what it called its "first targeted steps" to make it harder for U.S. companies to reduce their tax bills by merging with foreign firms. The process, known as inversion, has been all the rage in the corporate world this year. Treasury can´t unilaterally change tax law -- that´s the job of Congress. But what the Obama administration did on Monday was issue tax guidance that will govern any inversion completed from today forward. It also imposed at least one new restriction that will affect companies that have recently inverted.

Obama doesn’t look very happy these days. His face is drawn, his hair graying, his voice a monotone. To keep going he needs a lot of luxury vacations, therapeutic golf with low-level lackeys, and non-stop fawning from billionaire Democrats at fundraisers. He seems to have tuned out so completely that he hasn’t a clue what’s happening. Despite a year of briefings, ISIS was a complete a surprise to him. The only outside stimulus that got a reaction from the commander in chief was his abysmal poll numbers. It’s tough be to a pathological narcissist when the applause stops. The destruction

There’s been lots of debate lately in housing circles about the impact of student debt on home ownership. Now there’s a new study out that attempts to put a number on that impact: 414,000. That’s how many home sales will not happen this year because of high levels of student loan debt, according to a report from John Burns Consulting, an Irvine-based firm that advises home builders. That’s equal to about 8% of all home sales, and enough to dent the housing industry by $83 billion a year. The report estimates that the number of households under age 40 that

The extremist group Islamic State will drive the United States to its "death, grave and destruction," a spokesman for the militants declared in a recording that also called on Muslims living in the West to kill civilians. "You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland, and you will never be able to harm anyone afterward," Abu Muhammad Adnani said in a 42-minute speech that both taunted and threatened the U.S.-led coalition combating the Islamic State.

This has been a big year for gay rights in America. In state after state, either judges or voters have affirmed the constitutionality of same-sex marriage, and public support for gay unions reached an all-time high. But there´s still a tension between the acknowledgement of gay rights and the acceptance of gayness itself. A new Pew poll on religion in public life found that exactly half of respondents said they consider "homosexual behavior" sinful, a five-percentage-point increase since May 2013. This view is most prominent among white evangelicals and black protestants; more than three-quarters of each group said they see

There have been a rash of police raid-related stories in the news of late. Here’s a quick rundown: The grandson of a New Hampshire woman who was shot by police during a drug raid says she was reaching for her 18-month-old grandchild when the police fired at her. The bullet ripped through her arm and lodged in her abdomen. Two of the woman’s daughters were arrested on drug charges during simultaneous raids, but neither lived with the woman. According to the grandson, the police then tore the woman’s home apart but did not find any contraband. In a case we’ve been following here at The Watch, an Illinois judge just ruled

Smith, speaking on a new GAO report that indicated public funding of abortion, said, "The president issued an executive order on March 24, 2010 and it said: ‘the Act maintains current Hyde Amendment restrictions governing abortion policy and extends those restrictions to newly created health insurance exchanges.

A new study released Monday found that warming temperatures in Pacific Ocean waters off the coast of North America over the past century closely followed natural changes in the wind, not increases in greenhouse gases related to global warming. The study compared ocean surface temperatures from 1900 to 2012 to surface air pressure, a stand-in for wind measurements, and found a close match. "What we found was the somewhat surprising degree to which the winds can explain all the wiggles in the temperature curve," said lead author Jim Johnstone, who did the work while a climatologist at the Joint Institute

Learning of a refugee flood, John Stanmeyer went to the border. At least 66,000 Syrian Kurds streamed into Turkey on Saturday, fleeing the latest advances of the Islamic State—the violent Sunni group that has declared a caliphate in parts of Syria and Iraq—as it moved further north in a bid to extend territorial control. The militants’ onslaught left as many as 40 towns and villages in northern Syria, including the border city of Ayn al-Arab, called Kobani in Kurdish, virtually empty, as thousands of men, women and children sought safety. Turkey has received more than 1.2 million Syrian refugees since

In the dark of night,
remember to pray for America

Posted By: snowcloud- 9/22/2014 3:26:33 PM     Post Reply
At the end of each day as we lie abed each and every night there is something many of us forget to do. That something forgotten is to pray for America. In the vale of tears that life on earth is and has always been; in the misery that Marxism continues to spread among vulnerable masses, we pray for family members and friends who have fallen ill. We pray our job will be there for the foreseeable future, and even that we can somehow make this month’s rent or mortgage. At the end of the day when we turn out the lights and lay in our beds, when there is no one there but our conscience and the Creator, we tend to pray for people we know and about personal events perhaps thinking praying for a whole country is abstract.

The state-press report added that hundreds of innocent Chinese citizens have been killed over the past year. The report was short on many details. “At present, all the injured have been sent to hospital for full treatment, local social order is normal, and the cases are being investigated,” the report said. The alleged terror attacks comes following an announcement over the weekend that China is holding responsible seventeen police officials
