NORTHERN NIGERIA - Heavily armed Boko Haram Islamists abducted more than 100 girls from a secondary school in northeast Nigeria, sparking a search by soldiers to track down the attackers, a security source and witnesses said Tuesday.
Some of the schoolgirls in the Chibok area of southern Borno state narrowly escaped their kidnappers by jumping off a truck in the middle of the night as the gunmen sought to cart them away, according to multiple witnesses.
A security source who requested anonymity said the attackers were members of Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means “Western education is forbidden.”
The group has repeatedly attacked schools in the northeast during an insurgency that has killed thousands since 2009. Continue reading
The draw of the fuzzy Racoon was just too much to bear….
NEBRASKA - A Nebraska toddler had his eye on the prize when he slipped out of his home and wound up inside a claw machine at a nearby arcade.
Ashley Ireland had called police and begun a frantic search for her son, Kael, after he went missing from her apartment on Monday afternoon.
The three-year-old had managed to open the front door and walk to the nearby amusement arcade, where he was found playing with stuffed toys inside one of the machines. Kael’s antics had caught the attention of a group of customers in Madsen’s Bowling and Billiards in Lincoln, who alerted staff to the stowaway inside the machine.
A group of friends who had been bowling pointed out the trapped toddler to bartender Rachell Hildreth.
Pretty soon the toddler had a group of about 25 spectators watching him through the glass, as they tried to figure out how he managed to crawl inside. Continue reading
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †
I hate living in a time where we need to consider U.S. motivations in publicizing the issues of AQAP; …..and the potential for this to be a strategic media discussion. “Hate” is a strong word, but in this example it’s not even strong enough – sorry.
If we remove our own government’s ulterior motives from the equation, which is not easy, we are left to discuss the possibility Obama’s weakness in Syria and now Ukraine is specifically emboldening AQAP to think bigger than they normally would.
Regardless, it should be noted that historically AQAP only broadcasts their open meetings when something, some event, is already well underway. That said – it is prudent to be extra cautious and pay attention to the EU and Central Middle East (ie Egypt).
Never forget that upon a scale of rabid religious ideology – AQAP is at the very top in a deeply held belief they are engaged in a “Holy War”. Here’s the CNN report:
Washington (CNN) — A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.
U.S. officials won’t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. Continue reading
You might remember the murder of Australian college baseball player and exchange student Chris Lane last year in Oklahoma.
A normally quiet weekend in the small southwestern Oklahoma town of Duncan was horribly interrupted last year, when a car carrying three teenagers pulled up behind a lone white male jogger. The teens in the car fired on the jogger, Chris Lane, with a .22 caliber revolver, striking him in the back. As horrified witnesses looked on, the jogger staggered and dropped to his knees as the car sped away. He was pronounced dead at the scene by authorities.
James Francis Edwards Jr., 15, and Chancey Allen Luna, 16, were charged with murder in the first degree. The oldest member of the group, 17 year old Michael Jones, believed to be the driver of the vehicle, gave Duncan police a mind-boggling explanation for the crime: “We were bored and didn’t have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.“
Yesterday a fourth suspect was arrested. Continue reading

Interesting contrast inside the latest polling from Texas. Wendy Davis has wider name recognition yet Greg Abbott is extending his overall lead. What’s also interesting is how Wendy Davis polls worse the more people get to know her. And this is a Democrat friendly poll:
(Via Public Policy Polling) PPP’s newest Texas poll finds Republicans leading by double digits in all of the state’s major races for 2014.
In the Governor’s race Greg Abbott’s at 51% to 37% for Wendy Davis. Those numbers are largely unchanged from our last poll of the state in early November when Abbott had a 50/35 advantage.
Davis had a 39/29 favorability rating right after her famous filibuster last June, but since then voters in the state have mostly moved toward having negative opinions about her and now she’s at a 33/47 spread. Continue reading
Five years ago many of us were talking about why the White House would take Census Polling responsibility away from the Dept. of Commerce. At the time we did not know specifically why they were doing it – but we sensed it was nefarious. We predicted it was a typical Chicago Politics strategy to mold comparative data that directly would show consequences to long-term policy. We were right.
WASHINGTON DC - In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census.
Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. [...]
The White House dismissed the concerns of conservatives which were, indeed, unfounded insofar as they related to the 2010 census. But the fears of some that the Census Bureau could be corrupted by the imperatives of the political operatives in the White House was today proven accurate. Continue reading
