BREAKING: Reuters is reporting that a United States citizen working at the international school in Benghazi, Libya has been shot and killed. FOX News is reporting that medical and security sources told Reuters that the man was targeted by gunmen as he was exercising. No one has yet taken responsibility for the cowardly act.
Gunmen have killed a U.S. citizen working at an international school in the Libyan city of Benghazi, medical and security sources said on Thursday.
The attackers shot the American man, who was an instructor or teacher at the Benghazi school, while he exercised in the morning, the sources said.
After the murders of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, including the death of US Ambassador Chris Stevens has literally gone unpunished by the Obama administration, terrorists in Benghazi must think it is open season on Americans. There has been no comment yet from the Obama administration as to whether an anti-Muslim tape was responsible for the shooting.
This is what happens when you do not respond to terrorist acts in kind. How have the deaths of Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Amb. Chris Stevens not been investigated and justice not been served?

AP-GfK Poll: What a Sad Commentary of Today’s Society, Two-Thirds Say People Can’t Be Trusted … #You Lie
When did “Trust” become a 4-letter word … Who will be the role models?
As the AP article says, ‘In God we trust, maybe, but not each other’. How sad. What a sad commentary on where our society has gone where Americans don’t trust each other anymore. It is one thing to have blind trust and rose colored glasses, it is quite another to have trust be remain skeptical and always question. However, the trust trends, or lack thereof have rose dramatically in the last 40 years. I think it is no surprise that it would be based on the Watergate years. But what has changed in that respect where people would think at the very least that their President could set the image of trust. But that is certainly not the case today as Americans found out that Barack Obama was lying when he told “We the People” that if you liked your healthcare plan, you could keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! That coupled with all to many scandals like IRS-gate, AP-gate, Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, NSA-gate, Rosen-gate, etc. How could people really trust when they see all of these lies going on around them?
But it is larger than just politics. We need something to reverse the trend so that individuals want to trust others.
These days, only one-third of Americans say most people can be trusted. Half felt that way in 1972, when the General Social Survey first asked the question.
Forty years later, a record high of nearly two-thirds say “you can’t be too careful” in dealing with people.
An AP-GfK poll conducted last month found that Americans are suspicious of each other in everyday encounters. Less than one-third expressed a lot of trust in clerks who swipe their credit cards, drivers on the road, or people they meet when traveling.
“I’m leery of everybody,” said Bart Murawski, 27, of Albany, N.Y. “Caution is always a factor.”
Does it matter that Americans are suspicious of one another? Yes, say worried political and social scientists.
What’s known as “social trust” brings good things.
A society where it’s easier to compromise or make a deal. Where people are willing to work with those who are different from them for the common good. Where trust appears to promote economic growth.
Trust has to be earned, it does not grow on trees. And once trust is broken, it takes years, sometimes forever to repair. So, is it too late to reverse this trend? Some say that it is. Is it possible to go back to a simpler time and instill not only trust, but values in people to act accordingly? The question really is, who will step up and play the adult to make “TRUST” a valued principle?
In fact, some studies suggest it’s too late for most Americans alive today to become more trusting. That research says the basis for a person’s lifetime trust levels is set by his or her mid-twenties and unlikely to change, other than in some unifying crucible such as a world war.
People do get a little more trusting as they age. But beginning with the baby boomers, each generation has started off adulthood less trusting than those who came before them.
The best hope for creating a more trusting nation may be figuring out how to inspire today’s youth, perhaps united by their high-tech gadgets, to trust the way previous generations did in simpler times.
There are still trusters around to set an example.

OH CHRISTMAS TREE!!! Miracles of the Season, Christmas Tree Saves Family After Drive by Shooting by 35 Year Old Thug Dionne Lee McKelvin in Jeannette, PA
OH CHRISTMAS TREE … Here is something to be THANKFUL for … Christmas trees!!!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
Thou bidst us true and faithful be,
And trust in God unchangingly.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
Tuesday night around 10:30, the silence in a Westmoreland County neighborhood on North First Street in Jeannette, PA decorated for the Christmas season, came to an end as gun shots rang out in a drive by shooting. According to police, 35 year old Dionne Lee McKelvin is accused of shooting a woman in the arm and chest. The thug was arrested and charged with attempted homicide and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. What a shock, he has a record. He is in Westmoreland County Prison under $500,000 bond.
However, the greater story here is the fact that when Dionne Lee McKelvin did his drive by shooting, shots sprayed everywhere including into the home of Tina Smorey. The bullet went through the front of the house and into her living room wall and hitting the Christmas tree.
Tina Smorey’s house was hit by a stray bullet.
It went through the front of the house, coming out in her living room wall and hitting the Christmas tree.
She told KDKA’s Brenda Waters: “I was sitting on my couch and I heard six to eight loud pops. If the tree wasn’t there, we would have had that couch right under the windows; but ironically, we put the tree up early this year.
Hmm, another case of a convicted criminal abiding by gun laws.
YIKES, Two Florida Men Dressed Up As George Zimmerman & Trayvon Martin For Halloween Complete with Blackface & Blood-Stained Hoodie
The Do’s and Dont’s of Halloween costumes … I am going to go out on a limb and say this one would be a DON’T!!!
Anything for a laugh … Two Florida men dressed up as George Zimmerman and Travyon Martin for Halloween on Friday night. They declared the costumes “hilarious” on a Facebook post, which was since been deleted. Go figure. Happy Halloween from George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin the caption of a photo posted on a friend’s Facebook page. In the picture, one man is wearing a shirt with “neighborhood watch” on it as he holds his fingers looking like a gun pointed to the other man’s head. The man dressed like Trayvon is wearing black face and a blood stained hoodie. Really folks? SICK!!! What, no Skittles or Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail?
Is there a crime for poor taste?
As stated at Mediaite, some Facebook posters took exception to the pic and post and it was eventually taken down. Guess it was not so funny after all, eh? This further proves my theory that everyone serves a purpose in life, these three are here to serve as a bad example.
Image via Facebook
A pair of Florida men decided to celebrate Halloween this year by dressing up as George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, complete with blackface and blood-stained hoodie.
The image of the duo (click to enlarge) was uploaded Friday to the Facebook page of Caitlin Cimeno, a Martha’s Vineyard native who captioned the photo “Happy Halloween from Zimmerman & trayvon.” Cimeno, flanked in the photo by the two men, followed those words with a smiley face emoticon.
Greg Cimeno, 22, portrayed Zimmerman, complete with a “Neighborhood Watch” t-shirt. Cimeno lives in Cape Coral, Florida, where he appears to work for a carpentry firm.
William Filene, 25, dressed up as Martin, covering his face in black paint and donning a gray sweatshirt with a single bullet hole surrounded by fake blood. Filene, who also lives in Cape Coral, was arrested in June for felony auto theft. His rap sheet also included collars for loitering/prowling and failing to register an automobile.
Good Triumphs Over Evil … 15 Year Old Christian Lunsford Apologizes & Repays 78 Year Old Widow Tona Herndon Who His Father Had Mugged
GOOD REALLY DOES TRIUMPH OVER EVIL … Son pays for the sins of his father, literally!!!
It is the feel good story of the day and should provide us hope for the future.
First the unthinkable evil … 78 year old Tona Herndon was visiting the grave of her recently departed husband who she had been married to for 60 years. As she lay flowers at the grave she was mugged. What type of dirt-bag does such a thing and robs an old lady at a fresh grave? Talk about a one way ticket to Hell. The unconscionable incident occurred in Bethany, Oklahoma (VIDEO). However, the suspect attempted to use the widow’s credit card at a Walmart and the store’s surveillance video captured him on camera.
“After 60 years, there’s a lot of memories there. That should be a place that she should be able to go to and have peace and comfort. She’ll tell you that’s the closest she can get to him at this point,” Greg Herndon said.
“When someone will go to that point and rob a little old lady at a fresh grave, what is it that they will not do?” Herndon continued.
Thus far, police believe they might have a lead as to the man’s identity. The suspect attempted to use Mrs. Herndon’s credit card at a Walmart and the store’s surveillance video might have captured him on camera.
HOWEVER, GOOD PREVAILS … 15-year old Christian Lunsford was watching television when he saw his father’s mugshot appear on the screen as the man who committed the heinous act of robbing Tona Herndon. The 15 year old boy reached out to the victim and stated, “she needed an apology from someone”. Christian Lunsford met Tona Herndon in a church parking lot and apologized for the sins of his father, who had been absent from his life. Christian’s father had also been in jail a half a dozen times. But the apology was only the first part of the boys amazing act. Christian’s father had given him $250 for his band trip; however, the boy had no idea where the money had come from and was not sure if it may have been a part of the mugging. Christian Lunsford then did something that should bring a smile to all our faces, he gave $250 to 78 year old Tona Herndon. It was not the son’s crime, but he paid the debt anyhow. Talk about the apple falling way far from the tree. Herndon accepted the money and then brings us to the best part of the story … Tona Herndon then gifted the $250 back to the boy to that he could go on his band trip.
The mugger got away with her purse and $700, but not for long. Police caught him, and the news put his mug shot on TV.
Fifteen-year-old Christian Lunsford says the first time he saw the picture, he recognized it “in detail.” He had no doubt that it was his dad.
Christian says his parents divorced when he was two, and his dad has been mostly absent ever since. Last time he heard from him was a few weeks ago. His dad gave him $250 for a band trip Christian really wants to go on.
But that’s been the extent of his parenting recently. In fact, over the years, Christian says his dad has been in and out of jail more than half a dozen times.
“There’s times that you just feel really low, like, ‘Is that going to be me?’” he says. “‘Am I going to end up like that?’”
The apple wants nothing to do with the tree. Which is why, after Christian heard about his dad’s latest crime, he reached out to the victim and asked to meet her in a church parking lot. (Read the full story HERE).
Former St. Louis Rams Practice Squad Player T.Y. Nsekhe Gets Hammered in Backlash after Tweeting Anti-Military Comments … ‘It Doesn’t Take Much Skill To Kill Someone’
Anti-military Tweet from former St. Louis Ram Offensive lineman was quite offensive …
It all started after an individual Tweeted that she found it hard to believe that an individual wearing a helmet defending a football makes more money than a soldier wearing a helmet defending his country. I actually second that opinion as it is the soldier who makes our country free so that another individual has the right to play football. The dim-witted and cut practice squad offensive lineman then Tweeted, “It doesn’t take much skill to kill someone.” Wow, really? So an out of work football player who only played in 2 games thinks they can make it through military basic training, wanna bet?
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said Nsekhe wasn’t in the NFL because he’s “not necessarily a deep thinker, OK?”
The incident started after someone named Morgan Reed – under the Twitter handle @_Morganism_ – tweeted “Hard to believe that a player in a helmet defendin’ a football makes more money than a soldier in a helmet defendin’ his country.”
Offensive tacke Ty Nsekhe (@TY_Nsekhe), who was on the Rams practice squad in 2012, then responded, “It doesn’t take much skill to kill someone.”
The opinions Nsekhe shared via social media are his own and are completely contradictory to the values of our organization and the priority we place on military and veteran appreciation.
The St. Louis Rams are grateful for the sacrifices our military and their families make in order to defend our freedom and protect our great nation. The Rams have a longstanding commitment to our military and veterans and that commitment has only been strengthened under Head Coach Jeff Fisher, a passionate supporter of the military and everything that they represent. We find it deplorable that anyone would express any feelings other than extreme gratitude for the service that our country’s military provides.
UPDATE I: T.Y. Nsekhe is in full retreat and spin mode as he tries to apologize for his ignorant comment. Sorry, no one is buying it.
Former St. Louis Rams practice player T.Y. Nsekhe apologized to fans after facing intense backlash for a tweet he sent out a Tweet Monday night dismissing the talent of those in the U.S. military.
“In no way were my comments meant to demean the members of our US armed forces,” Nsekhe said. “I recognize the sacrifices these members make so that all American’s [sic] can enjoy the freedoms our soldiers [sic] skills have afforded us.”
Terrorist Suicide Bomb Kills Christians at Pakistan Church: 60 People Killed & More than 120 Injured Including Women and Children Following Twin Suicide Bomb Blasts in Qissa Khawani Bazaar of Peshawar
Because Islam is a religion of Peace …
So where is the outrage that Christan are being killed in Muslim countries? The LA Times is reporting that a pair of suicide bombers detonated their explosives outside a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing over 60 people in the deadliest-ever attack on the country’s Christian minority. The NY Times is reporting 75 people are dead as the cowardly suicide bombers detonated their bombs as as worshipers left the All Saints Church in the old quarter of the regional capital, Peshawar.
The bombing in Peshawar, which wounded 120 people, underlines the threat posed by Islamic extremists as the government seeks a peace deal with domestic Taliban militants. It will likely intensify criticism from those who believe that negotiating peace with militants is a mistake.
The blasts killed more than 60 people and wounded 120, said Arshad Javed, top health official at the hospital in Peshawar where the victims were being treated. The dead included several women and children, said Sher Ali Khan, another doctor at the hospital.
The number of casualties was so high that the hospital was running out of caskets for the dead and beds for the wounded, said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, a former information minister of surrounding Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province who was on the scene.
“What have we done wrong to these people’” asked one of the wounded, John Tariq, referring to the attackers. “Why are we being killed?”
PESHAWAR: At least 60 people were killed and more than 120 including women and children were injured in twin suicide blasts in Qissa Khawani bazaar of Peshawar, Geo News reported.
Sources said suicide bombers blew themselves up outside Kohati gate near the Pakistan Church.
Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have cordoned off the area after the blast.
Chief Executive Leady Reading Hospital (LRH) has confirmed killing of 56 people in the blasts.
Emergency has been declared in the LRH.
The eyewitnesses said the worshipers were leaving the Church when the blast occurred. More than 500 people were present in the Church at the time of suicide attack.
Too Funny, But Very Sad as Well … Passing a Joint Scores Higher than Passing the Collection Plate in Church … “This is When You Know We’re Going to Hell”
This might be one of the funniest moments ever in ‘Family Feud’ but boy doesn’t it speak volumes of just how far our society has fallen. What happened to us? The question was, name something that gets passed around? Unbelievably there were more “weed heads” than people that go to church.
The host was looking for some saving, but passing the joint scored higher than the collection plate at church. YIKES!
Vatican Confirms that Syrian Catholic Priest François Murad Beheaded in Syria by Rebel Jihadist Forces (Video-Warning, Violent) … And Obama Wants to Arm the Rebels Against the Will of the People?
Because Islam is a religion of peace … Take a good look at what Obama wants to arm with American weapons.
The Vatican has confirmed that Catholic priest François Murad is dead and was beheaded by Syrian jihadists on June 23, 2013. The priest was trying to defend nuns inside a convent. Let this be a lesson to everyone what radical Islamist jihadists are all about. Franciscan Father, Francois Murad, was accused of collaborating with the Assad regime. So this is what they do, these animal. These are the same rebels fighting against Assad that fools like Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Carl Levin (D-MI) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) want to arm. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! This is what Obama, McCain and other misguided twits would rather have in power than Assad. The Obama administration has approved arming this animals. As Weasel Zippers states, So I guess Christians will now be killed with American weapons. And we hear from Obama that the war on terror is over. Really?
On Sunday, June 23 the Syrian priest François Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge. This is confirmed by a statement of the Custos of the Holy Land sent to Fides Agency. The circumstances of the death are not fully understood. According to local sources, the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying was attacked by militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra.
Father François, 49, had taken the first steps in the religious life with the Franciscan Friars of the Custody of the Holy Land, and with them he continued to share close bonds of spiritual friendship. After being ordained a priest he had started the construction of a coenobitic monastery dedicated to St. Simon Stylites in the village of Gassanieh.After the start of the Civil War, the monastery of St. Simon had been bombed and Fr. Murad had moved to the convent of the Custody for safety reasons and to give support to the remaining few, along with another religious and nuns of the Rosary.
As these animals savagely behead Father, Francois Murad, you can here them yelling Allahu Akbar as they are taking pics with their cell phone. I am speechless. This is what we are going to back in this Syrian war? OBAMA, HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!! This is what we want in charge of Syria? Sorry, but we have no business getting involved at all. Syrian rebels have pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda. So now Barack Hussein Obama, we are in the business of helping al-Qaeda?
WARNING, and we mean WARNING: Syrian rebels beheads bishop François Murad might contain content that is not suitable for all ages. You must be 18 years and over to view.
This is why all polls show that Americans want no involvement when it comes to Syria and their civil war. A recent NBC/WSJ poll indicates Americans oppose overwhelmingly intervention in Syria. In a Gallup poll, 68% of Americans oppose U.S. Military involvement in Syria. A PEW poll shows that 70% of Americans oppose arming groups in Syria, yet that does not stop Barack Hussein Obama. According to a FOX News poll, 66% of Americans voters disagree with arming the rebels, made up of 77% of Republicans, 64% of independents and 58% of Democrats.
Asked to pick a response to stop the killing of civilians in Syria, just 15 percent in the poll say they favor U.S. military action, and only 11 percent want to provide arms to the opposition.
By comparison, a plurality of respondents — 42 percent — prefer to provide only humanitarian assistance, and 24 percent believe the U.S. shouldn’t take any action.

Jury Says that Convicted Murderer Jodi Arias is Eligible for the Death Penalty … Death Wish for Arias
Jodi Arias, don’t ask for things they might come true …
This afternoon, jurors in Jodi Arias murder trial decided that the woman convicted of first degree murder of her boyfriend, Travis Alexander, should be eligible for the death penalty . The jury determined that Arias murdered Alexander in an “especially cruel and heinous” manner. Next up in the trial is the penalty phase, when the jury panel will weigh her possible execution. The jury will determine whether she lives or dies begins tomorrow.
Arias, 32, admitted killing Travis Alexander in June 2008 at his suburban Phoenix home. She first denied involvement. Two years after her arrest, she said it was self-defense. Prosecutors said she planned the killing in a jealous rage.
Next comes the final penalty phase, when prosecutors call witnesses, including Alexander’s family, as they attempt to convince jurors that Arias should face the ultimate punishment. Arias’ attorneys will work to gain sympathy from jurors to spare her life.
During Wednesday’s proceedings, Alexander’s family sobbed in the front row as prosecutor Juan Martinez took the jury through the killing one more time. He described how blood gushed from Alexander’s chest, hands and throat as he stood at the sink in his master bathroom and looked into the mirror with Arias behind him.
“The last thing he saw before he lapsed into unconsciousness … was that blade coming to his throat,” Martinez said. “And the last thing he felt before he left this Earth was pain.”
In a past interview Jodi Arias stated that she preferred death and to die sooner, rather than later. The jury may actually give Arias her death wish. Tomorrow promises to be an emotional, heart-wrenching day as family members will present their feelings on what the punishment should be to the court.
