Watch: After 17 Years Of Trying, She Told Him She Was Finally Pregnant In Best Possible Way

One couple found out that life tends to happen when humans make other plans. Arkell and Dana Griffin-Graves recently found out they were pregnant after 17 years of trying, waiting and then giving up.

The Dinwiddie, Va., couple celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary last May. They started off their marriage almost two decades ago planning on a family, but had many problems in realizing their dream. Dana Griffin-Graves told Buzzfeed she delivered a stillborn baby at six months and had four miscarriages.

“It just didn’t work out, so we kind of gave up,” she said.

Looking at their Facebook pages, their lives are full. Both are involved in the community, their family, and each other. Arkell Graves complimented his wife on the public portion of his Facebook page on their anniversary.

“17 years strong, blessed and I love it. Know, greater partner to have,” he wrote.

Recently, Dana decided to start a walking program with her friends. She began to notice all of them were losing weight, but she wasn’t losing any. Concerned, she paid her doctor a visit. The doctor told her she was five months pregnant.

“I was ecstatic,” she said. “We hadn’t planned anything, we weren’t trying.”

Dana wanted to do something special to tell Arkell. So, she put some buns in the oven with a sonogram picture next to them. Arkell began helping to make dinner while his wife filmed him. She told him there was something in the oven, and he looked.

His reaction was of stunned surprise.

“You’re pregnant?” Arkell asked a couple of times before he became emotional. He burst into tears when she told him she was five months along and cried even harder when Dana told him even more news – she was having a boy.

Watch: ARMED Air Force Vet Who Was On Umpqua Campus Reveals What Stopped Him From Helping

An Air Force veteran, with a conceal carry license, was told to stand down when he offered to help during Thursday’s Oregon campus shooting.

John Parker, 36, was at the veterans center at Umpqua Community College when he heard about the shooting, which was happening 200 yards from his location.

He told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night: “There were a few people in the vet center and then when we heard the shooting happened, we got up and we were gonna go out and see what we could do.” He added: “Immediately the school staff stopped us and told us to get inside of the building…essentially the staff wouldn’t let us go to assist.”

Law enforcement later swept through the campus buildings and discovered that Parker had a gun. “I told the officer about the gun on my hip,” Parker told the Huffington Post. “He searched me, took the gun, escorted me back to my car and gave me my gun back and told me to have a nice day.”

Ten people were killed, including the shooter, and nine others were wounded in Thursday’s campus shooting.

The gunman wore body armor and had three handguns and an assault weapon, as well as a significant amount of ammunition.

CNN reports that one of the wounded, Anastasia Boylan, told her father:

The gunman, while reloading his handgun, ordered the students to stand up if they were Christians…

“And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second”…

“And then he shot and killed them.”

A vigil was held last night in Roseburg, Oregon, where UCC is located. Those students and others gathered sang Amazing Grace, and Taps was played in memory of the victims.

Western Journalism has made an editorial decision not to promote the name or image of the alleged Oregon school shooter. If you would like to see his name and picture, you may click here: Oregon Shooter Identity.

Donald Trump Tells Don Lemon That A ‘Certain Segment’ Of Muslims Are A ‘Problem’


CNN’s Don Lemon asked Donald Trump about the Muslim comment made by the unidentified man at his New Hampshire rally.

Don Lemon: “You’re heading back to New Hampshire, right?”

Donald Trump: “Correct.”

Don Lemon: “For the first time, for a town hall since that, the guy at the town hall said, ‘The president is a Muslim. That we have problems with the Muslims in this country. We have to get them out.’”

Donald Trump: “He said, ‘Muslims are a problem,’ that was part of what he said. Well, I mean, can you make the case that it’s been tough? And, by the way, most Muslims, I know many, are great people, just so you put it on the record.”

Lemon asked Trump directly if he thinks Muslims are a problem.

Don Lemon: “Do you think Muslims are a problem?”

Donald Trump: “Well, I think a certain segment are certainly a problem. Unless you want to be so politically correct, would you want me to say? ‘Oh, absolutely not!’ I mean, you have ISIS. You have the migration. You have all of this stuff. You have, you know, a lot of people think you can end up with World War III over the Middle East. I’ve heard that for 25 years. There’s something going on when you see beheadings. I mean beheadings, we haven’t seen that since medieval times.”

Mr. Trump said that his Muslim friends also believe that the radical Islamists pose a threat.

Donald Trump: “I have great friendships with many people who are Muslims, living in this building. OK? Living here. But I have great friendships, they’re phenomenal people. And most of them are like that, but you certainly have…”

Don Lemon: “Have they asked you about your comments? What do you say to them? Are they asking?”

Donald Trump: “By the way, they think we have a bigger problem than we do. OK? They think we have a bigger problem. Because there’s a radical Islamic group of people that is brutal. And unless our country gets tough and smart, and unless we have the right leadership done; we’re in big trouble.”

ABC’s ‘The View’ Gets Schooled On Planned Parenthood By GOP Candidate

Video Transcript:

As Congress debates defunding Planned Parenthood, the liberals on ABC’s The View disagreed with some of the hard truths.

Rick Santorum: Planned Parenthood, for example, doesn’t provide mammograms. I know they say they do, but they don’t. In fact…

Whoopi Goldberg: Yeah they do.

Santorum: No, Cecille Richards yesterday at the hearing said, in fact, they do not. In fact there are no, there are no Planned Parenthoods that provide any mammogram services.

Santorum said he would like to see every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood reallocated to more comprehensive women’s health centers.

I’m for reallocating every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood and put them in women’s health centers that actually provide more comprehensive services than Planned Parenthood does.

One of the hosts was concerned about what would happen when the nation’s most prolific baby butchers were no longer funded.

Paula Faris: So you’re saying if you reallocate all of that money away from Planned Parenthood to these clinics, will those clinics then provide abortions or where do you want these displaced women to go?

Santorum: Yeah, well, there are obviously, Planned Parenthood is one abortion provider in the country. There are others that provide abortions.

Santorum had to explain what few services Planned Parenthood does.

Santorum: They basically provide abortion, contraception, STD’s and…

Host: Morning after pill.

Santorum: …pregnancy tests. That’s it. If you said we were going to take the Planned Parenthood money, reallocate it to, actually clinics that do provide a whole host of other women’s health services, women are probably going to get a more holistic health screening at those places than they would at Planned Parenthood.

Watch: Netanyahu Makes A Bizarre Action During UN Speech That World Leaders Can’t Possibly Ignore

Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu delivered yet another impressive and emotional speech at the General Assembly of the United Nations (UNGA), taking the world body to task about its obsession with the Jewish State and its sheepish acceptance of the nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers.

“We see a world celebrating this bad deal, rushing to embrace and do business with a regime openly committed to our destruction,” The Israeli PM said.

Netanyahu took an unusual step to pause during his speech after he compared the reaction of the international community to Iran’s repeated vows to annihilate Israel to what happened in the world more than seventy years ago when the Nazi’s murdered six million Jews.

“Seventy years after the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s rulers promise to destroy my country, to murder my people, and the response from this body, the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here, has been absolutely nothing. Utter silence. Deafening silence,” Netanyahu told the UNGA.

After he lambasted the United Nations for its deafening silence in response to the Iranian threats the Israeli PM stood at the podium of the General Assembly and stared silently at the delegates of UN member states for 45 seconds to make his point.

Netanyahu gave the General Assembly several examples of recent threats to exterminate Israel made by Iranian leaders and showed the delegates a new book written by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, that deals with a detailed plan to destroy Israel.

He detailed how Iran has used the period of the final negotiations about a nuclear deal with six world powers to supply new sophisticated weaponry to its proxy armies at Israel’s border and to boost weapon supply to the forces of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Netanyahu also told the UNGA that Iran was behind Hezbollah terror plots that have recently been discovered in Kuwait, Jordan and Cyprus.

Netanyahu said that the amount of explosives found in the Cyprus terror plot was enough to commit a devastating act of terror comparable to the Oklahoma attack in the United States and warned that Iran is currently preparing dozens of other attacks including several in the northern hemisphere.

The Israeli PM said that the nuclear agreement will not turn the rapacious tiger (Iran) into a kitten and added that when bad behavior is rewarded it only gets worse.

“The greatest danger facing our world is the coupling of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. The deal with Iran could be “the marriage certificate of this unholy union,” Netanyahu added.

At the end of his remarks on Iran, Netanyahu again made clear that Israel is not bound by the nuclear agreement with Iran and threatened the international community that Israel will never allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons.

He told the Iranian leaders that their plans to annihilate Israel will fail and mentioned empires that had tried to destroy the Jewish nation throughout its history of three thousand years but vanished from the face of earth while the Jewish people returned home and are alive and kicking. “Am Yisrael Chai,” (The people of Israel is alive), Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu briefly touched upon the speech of PA President Abbas who addressed the UNGA yesterday.

Abbas had accused Israel of seeking to change the status quo on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem which is today home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Mosque of Omar (Dome of the Rock) and threatened to terminate the Oslo accords when Israel continues to breach the agreements.

Netanyahu said that Israel does everything possible to maintain the status quo on the Temple Mount including a ban on Jewish prayer and accused the Palestinians of smuggling explosives into the mosque and of violent acts against Christian and Jewish visitors on the Temple Mount.

“President Abbas, stop spreading lies about Israel’s alleged intentions on the Temple Mount. Israel is fully committed to maintaining the status quo there. What President Abbas should be speaking out against are the actions of militant Islamists who are smuggling explosives into the al-Aqsa Mosque and trying to prevent Jewish and Christian visitors from entering the site,” Netanyahu said. He added that this was the real threat to this sacred site.

Netanyahu told the UNGA that “Israel expects the Palestinian Authority to abide by its commitments,” implying that it is the PA that is in breach of the Oslo Accords.

“The Palestinians should not walk away from peace,” he said. Netanyahu repeated his offer to Abbas, to return to the negotiation table immediately “without preconditions.” He said that it would not be easy to reach an accord but that both leaders owe this to their peoples. The UN can help advance peace but not by imposing solutions and not encourage Palestinian rejectionism, he added.

At the end of his speech, Netanyahu told the delegates that the UN should rid itself of its obsessive bashing of Israel. He gave one example of this obsession. Despite four years of horrific violence in Syria during which more than 250,000 people lost their life, the UN continues to adopt resolutions that condemn Israel and not the Syrian regime. Just last year the UNGA adopted twenty resolutions against Israel and just one resolution about the ‘savage slaughter’ in Syria, Netanyahu said.

He called upon the UN to finally stand with Israel because “Israel is not just defending itself but you.”

Just two hours after Netanyahu delivered his speech at the General Assembly of the United Nations, Palestinian terrorists killed two Israeli citizens near the village of Itamar in the northern West Bank (Shomron). Israeli paramedics found the bodies of two Jewish Israelis who were murdered by gunshots in the chest in a car along the road between Alon Moreh and Itamar. Four children who apparently traveled with the victims escaped unharmed and were brought to the Itamar junction where they were examined by doctors who had arrived at the scene.
