In 1782, Thomas Jefferson wrote,

" I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His Justice cannot sleep forever." hmmm....

In 1838 Abraham Lincoln once said:

" At what point shall we expect the approach of danger?..... Answer; If it ever reaches us, it must spring up amongest us, It cannot come from abroad, If desruction be our lot, we must ourselves be it's author and finisher." 

In 1951 Harry Truman once said:

" I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our present position of power and strength for some great purpose." 

 Sir Isaac Newton, scholar, mathematician and one of the greatest scientific mind's in human history, once said,

      Shooting at Pennsylvania hospital leaves one dead, two wounded

      By Shelby Lin Erdman, CNN

      (CNN) -- A shooting at a suburban Philadelphia hospital Thursday afternoon left a psychiatric caseworker dead and two wounded, including a doctor, local authorities said.

      Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said the shooting happened about 2:30 p.m. in a treatment room at Mercy Fitzgerald Wellness Center in Darby, Pennsylvania, according to CNN affiliate KYW-TV.

      Whelan said it appears an outpatient psychiatric patient shot and killed the caseworker, and the doctor, who was carrying his own weapon, shot the patient. Authorities said they did not know why the patient opened fire.

      He identified the patient as Richard Plotts of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, and the caseworker as Theresa Hunt of Pennsylvania.

      The doctor, Lee Silverman, was grazed by a bullet but otherwise not injured, Whelan said. Plotts was in critical condition at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, the district attorney said

      Witnesses described a chaotic scene as numerous law enforcement officers descended on the hospital.

      "The scene looked like a small army. It was very surreal but it was comforting that if something happens this severe and we can come together," said Rohan Hepkins, mayor of nearby Yeadon, Pennsylvania.

      "The police came in droves and they locked down everything. They chased everybody on the inside and then we (saw) a SWAT team come in," a bystander told CNN affiliate KYW.

      CNN's Dominique Dodley, Christy Lenz, Chelsea Carter and Rob Frehse contributed to this report

      Carlos Gomez Is A Dancing Ninja Turtle

      Mark Reynolds was a guest on MLB Network's Yukfest Live with human balloon-from-the-supermarket-checkout-line Kevin Millar and Chris Rose Wednesday afternoon and got himself videobombed by Carlos Gomez. This was no run-of-the-mill videobomb, though, Gomez was dressed up as Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. We might finally have an explanation for this bizarre novelty shirt that looks like a pizza stain.

      The hosts spent a few minutes trying to guess who was in the Leonardo costume, eventually asking to see him move his hips, which led to the dance moves you see above.

      Gomez eventually broke the cardinal sin of stuffed costume-wearing and removed his Leonardo head to cool off. I think he also tried to smell the back of Reynolds's head? I dunno, baseball players are weird, man.

      Carlos Gomez Is A Dancing Ninja Turtle

      Gomez apparently obtained and wore the costume because his son asked him to, which is a pretty Cool Dad move on his part.

      We've seen bad defense from Ryan Raburn before, but this is really something.

      For at least the second time in his career, the outfielder (now with the Indians) allowed a man to circle the bases entirely due to defensive miscues. The beneficiary this time was Kansas City's Mike Moustakas, and it broke a 0-0 tie in the eighth inning.

    APS said authorities lost contact with flight AH 5017 an hour after it took off from Burkina Faso, although other officials gave other timings, adding to confusion about the fate of the flight and where it might be.

Vast swaths of northern Iraq, including the cities of Mosul and Tal Afar, have fallen as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, advances toward Baghdad, the capital. The ISIS militants want to establish a caliphate, or Islamic state, in the region, stretching from Iraq into northern Syria.

     Baghdad (CNN) -- Nearly five dozen inmates were killed when militants attacked a convoy of Iraqi security forces who were transferring them from one prison to another, police said Thursday.

    At least 58 inmates died in the suicide attack and eight security force members were injured.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but police said they believed it was carried out by fighters for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The Islamist group has gained control of large swaths of the two Mideast nations.

    Dozens feared dead in Taiwan plane crash

    By Jason Hanna and Ashley Fantz, CNN

     

    Map: Magong

     (CNN) -- As many as 45 people are feared dead after a TransAsia Airways passenger plane crashed on one of Taiwan's Penghu Islands on Wednesday, Taiwan's Central News Agency reported.

    At least nine other people were injured in the crash of the twin-engine turboprop plane, which happened outside Magong Airport at about 7 p.m., CNA reported.

    CNN affiliate ETTV is reporting that the plane crashed into a residential building.

    Witnesses said they saw homes on fire, the affiliate said.

    The cause of the crash wasn't immediately known. Some media reports said the plane was making a crash landing prompted by strong winds from Typhoon Matmo, which hit Taiwan early Wednesday, according to CNA.

    The plane, an ATR 72, had taken off from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, CNA reported. The Penghu Islands are off the main Taiwanese island's west coast.

    There were 54 passengers and four crew aboard the flight, said Jean Shen, the director-general of the Civil Aeronautics Administration, at a press conference.

      The bounce. The bounce is what makes this particularly humiliating for the San Francisco fan and absolutely wonderful for the rest of us. That it comes as he tries to adjust his pants while a furry mascot crosses him up is but a delicious, added bonus.

      The video is not embeddable, but you can watch the whole thing over at NFL.com, which you should obviously do because look at that guy bounce! Once he hits the deck, there is at least an inch, maybe six, between his body and the ground before he slams back down again, this time with his face giving his body a little bit of a break. While all this is happening, the Seahawks mascot is hot-dogging and taunting his way to a "touchdown" in a parking lot or something. Just a brutal moment to have caught on camera.

      That's newly-acquired Yankees third baseman Chase Headley meeting his new coaches and teammates for the first time since he was traded from the Padres earlier in the day. He had to catch a flight from Chicago, where San Diego was set to play the Cubs, so he was not expected to get to the stadium on time—Joe Girardi said he might be available off the bench—but he got to the Bronx around 7:30 p.m. and eventually made his way to the dugout.

      It was a pretty weird scene, Headley working his way down the dugout, shaking hands and introducing himself to pitching coach Larry Rothschild, first base coach Mick Kelleher, and the rest of his team for the first time while the game was going on. Amazingly, he did not enter the game until the eighth inning and wound up with four at bats.

      OK, so, context: Ronaldo went on a Japanese television show and brought with him some kind of device for "facial fitness." He also brought some other massaging tool that looked like an upside down phallus and rubbed it on a lady's face. And, yeah, he stood next to a shirtless, life-size picture of himself for pretty much the whole time.

      Grieving father of daughter aboard MH17 pens open letter to Vladimir Putin. (AP/Contributed)

      Hans de Borst takes to social media to cope with the loss of his 17-year-old daughter on Flight MH17.  'Life is ruined' » 

       

      A grief-stricken father whose 17-year-old daughter was a passenger on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 has penned an open letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

      In the letter posted to Facebook, Hans de Borst wrote that his daughter, Elsemiek de Borst, had planned to become an engineer.

      "Elsemiek would next year take her final exam, along with her best friends Julia and Marina, and she did well in school," de Borst wrote. "She then wanted to go to TU Delft to study engineering, and she was looking forward to it! She is suddenly no more! From the air she was shot in a foreign country where a war is going on."

      Elsemiek, he wrote, was traveling from The Hague to Malaysia with her mother (de Borst's ex-wife), brother and stepfather on MH17. She was one of 193 Dutch victims of the crash. The Boeing 777 en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam was shot down over the Russia-Ukraine border, killing all 298 passengers and crew.

      "Many thanks to the Separatist leaders of Ukrainian government for the murder of my dear and only child," de Borst wrote. "Gentlemen of the above, I hope you're proud of including her and her young life was shot up too, and you can look in the mirror!

      "Thanks again," he added, signing the letter: "Sincerely, Elsemiek's father, Hans de Borst from Monster, whose life is ruined."

      De Borst wasn't the only grieving Dutch parent to address Putin.

      "Mr. Putin, send my children home," Silene Fredriksz-Hoogzand, whose son Bryce and his girlfriend, Daisy Oehlers, were among those killed in the crash, told Sky TV. "Send them home. Please."

      Fredriksz-Hoogzand told the Associated Press she was appalled at the way the crash site was being handled.

      "I am not a politician," she said on Sunday. "But I know for sure that Mr. Putin can do something.

      "No words can describe it," Fredriksz-Hoogzand continued. "Bodies are just lying there for three days in the hot sun. There are people who have this on their conscience. There are families who can never hold the body of a child or a mother."

      Mother, son's eerie MH17 selfie surfaces (AP)

      Gary Slok and his mother

       Petra and Gary Slock snapped this photo moments before taking off on the flight that was later shot down.

      These snapshots might have been their last. Cellphones and the Web have been tracking the lives of the victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, shot down in eastern Ukraine last week:

      • Fifteen-year-old Gary Slok and his mother, Petra, were going on a dream vacation and snapped a photo before departure.

      • In one video, there's audible preparation for liftoff from Amsterdam.

      • A picture of the Boeing 777 on the runway quickly went viral after it was uploaded to Facebook. Dutch musician Cor Pan joked about its possible disappearance, referencing missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. He and his florist girlfriend, Neeltje Tol, were supposed to go on a trip together. Friends and family had sent their well-wishes on the online post.

      Social media have also been active in the aftermath of the tragedy:

      • Vine videos document the mass destruction.

      • A soccer star had to apologize for posting a selfie on Twitter while on the same route to New Zealand but on a different day. Two fans of Haris Vučkić's Newscastle United club were killed in the crash.

      • A community memoriam Facebook page was set up for Cor Pan. It has more than 10,000 likes.
