Benghazi consulate attack: Report clears US response


The inquiry by the Republican-run House Intelligence Committee also said there was no intelligence failure and no delay in sending a CIA rescue team.

My note:  this removes a serious charge of leadership incompetence away from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- a big boost to her potential campaign

Bean is facing two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor. The charges stem from an ongoing investigation that involves an alleged sexual encounter with a 15-year-old boy.

A Great Thanksgiving Read for You and Your Family


Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving 

[Kindle Edition]
Eric Metaxas (Author)

Print Price: $6.99
Kindle Price: $1.99 
(save $5.00 off of regular Kindle price)


My review:  A delightful and heart-breaking story about a child's journey from his peaceful tribe in what is now Massachusetts to being taken hostage and sold into slavery. Follow Squanto from those innocent early days in America to Spain where he is sold as a slave and then to England where he is able to return home. See God's providence in placing Squanto into the hands of Christians who treated him well and understood his desire to return home. Read how God used him back in his homeland to help settlers escaping persecution in Europe survive in an unfamiliar new land. A great Thanksgiving day read for you and your family.

For those concerned about how it appears on the Kindle, I read it on my Kindle for PC with no problems. Everything was right where it belonged and the story flowed nicely.

Websightings: Vicious and Bloody Attack Kills 4 Jews Praying in Their Jerusalem Synagogue, Speaking to Your Boys about Kardashian, Russian Ministries Changes Its Name, Holiday Stories and Single Parent Encouragement




Jerusalem Terror Attack Leaves 4 Jews Dead, 8 Seriously Wounded and the 2 Palestinian Attackers Dead

Utilizing a pistol and meat cleaver, two Palestinians committed an act of vicious and murderous hatred on a prayer gathering of 25 in a Jewish synagogue in Jerusalem.

The amount of blood at the scene gives a sense of the terror and the atrocity committed there. 

Word is that this in the pre-1967 portion of Jerusalem, not what the Palestinians often call "occupied" Jerusalem.

Fifth person dies
