On Saturday at the Iowa Agriculture Summit, I called on Washington to put American workers first.
Critics say I'm a "populist," but the truth is I'm a nationalist. I put America and its workers first. Too many in the political class put Wall Street and Washington elites first. They aren't fighting for American workers. more >>
The son of a Pakistani Christian servant, who was accused of stealing from her employer's home, was killed by local police officers last weekend after he was arrested and beaten in hopes that his beating would force his mother to confess to the burglary.
The British Pakistani Christian Association reported that the body of 20-year-old Zubair Rashid Masih was dumped onto the street in front of his mother's home in the early morning of March 8 in the Shamsabad area of the Punjab province.
On March 4, his mother, Aysha Bibi, was arrested on charges that she stole about 35,000 rupees and 100 grams in gold ornaments from the home where she worked as a domestic servant. more >>
The Supreme Court is slated to rule on the subject of same-sex "marriage" this term. Here are four questions I want to ask same-sex marriage supporters:
1) If the Supreme Court says that it is okay for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman, then how can they stop there?
Once they open Pandora's Box, how can they say that polygamy is unconstitutional? The Supreme Court already ruled on that. Utah, a state founded by Mormons, could not be accepted in the Union until there was the promise that they would not practice polygamy, Reynolds v. United States, 1878. more >>
Brian Ivie, a 24-year-old filmmaker from Orange County, California, set out three years ago to South Korea to make the film to end all films. Fortunately for him, that didn't work out. Instead, he encountered the man he now calls his spiritual father — and became a curator of this man's powerful and profound story of sacrifice and love.
Ivie, eager and working from a script set in his mind of how things would certainly go, set out on Dec. 15, 2011, for Seoul, South Korea, with a crew of 11 (mostly friends and his younger brother, Kevin) after a simple email exchange with Pastor Lee Jong-rak.
"19 Kids & Counting" matriarch Michelle Duggar has opened up about her struggles with self-worth and bulimia before knowing God in the latest season of the reality series.
"Before I came to know the Lord, I had been struggling in my self-worth, just feeling like I needed to measure up to all my friends. I began to have a wrong view of who I was, I gained weight so easily. I ended up starting a bad habit of making myself get sick after I ate. As I was in that process, no one knew," Michelle said in the upcoming episode.
She actually went public with her ordeal in the book Growing Up Duggar, which was written by her daughters Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger. She went by a pseudonym in the book but then later did acknowledge that the story was about her. more >>
A grandmother in Chicago, Illinois, has been taken into custody after allegedly murdering her seven-month-old granddaughter with a circular saw because she would not stop crying.
The 52-year-old woman tried to stop the infant from crying by stuffing something into her mouth, according to one source. Then, authorities said, she used a circular saw to cut the baby's throat. She then attempted to take her own life and was found by another relative; she was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was in stable condition and in police custody.
The death came as a surprise to the entire family and community. Illinois Department of Children and Family Services said that there had been no prior contact with the family and there were no other children present at the time of the incident. more >>
