    The Washington Times is reporting that Julia Salazar, the democratic socialist who had seemed to have lied about her ethnicity, her academic credentials, and more, has beaten incumbent Sen. Martin Dilan. Seems New York City can’t get enough of those democratic socialists.

    By now we have heard of the sick anti-Catholic stunt pulled by California Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein. This attack says far more about the Democrats than it does about Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Trembling with hatred and fear of Catholics, Diane Feinstein, has reverted to her true self and dove to the depths of depravity to take one last shot at a Catholic target. If any other Democrat brought this charge it could be brushed aside as just another stunt from their Spartacus wing. That’s not the case here. Diane Feinstein, who has a history of showing her anti-Catholic bigotry, has...

    What appears to be the year’s largest pro-Second Amendment rally took place in Boise, Idaho, this weekend, drawing thousands of supporters from at least five states through the streets of Boise to the capitol building. Rallygoers carried rifles and handguns along with American and Gadsden flags, and all came out to show their support for the right to keep and bear arms. “They want to ban all semi-automatic firearms, this is the battle that we’re in and if you haven’t noticed, the anti-gun left wants your guns,” Greg Pruett, President of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance (ISAA), said from the...

    A window on the 36th floor of the tilting high-rise cracked last week and engineers have yet to determine a cause Millennium Tower must inspect all units and install a canopy around the perimeter of the 58-story building by Friday afternoon. The downtown tower has settled about 18 inches (45 centimeters) since it opened over a former landfill in 2009. Homeowners have filed multiple lawsuits against the developer and the city.
  • Is new voter law sparking confusion? Murphy: It will work. Lawmaker: It sucks

    Jersey voters, take note. There's a big change in the state's voting laws that you'll need to pay attention to under a measure signed by Gov. Phil Murphy designed to expand voter participation. Critics say the new law is sparking voter confusion. And county clerks say it's forced them to scramble to comb voting rolls to meet its requirements on short notice. The big change is about mail-in ballots. You have always had the option of mailing in your ballot. You could get a ballot if you applied for one by the deadline, then mailed it in or dropped it...
  • ‘Assault Weapon’ Ban in Florida… Anti-Gun Groups Join Forces to Put it on the Ballot

    09/14/2018 6:38:08 AM PDT · by rktman · 44 replies ^ | 9/12/2018 | Jordan Michaels
    Two Florida-based anti-gun groups have joined forces to put a constitutional amendment on the state’s 2020 general election ballot to ban “assault weapons” in the Gunshine State. The organizations – Americans for Gun Safety Now (AFGSN) and Ban Assault Weapons Now (BAWN) – must gather 766,200 petition signatures from registered Florida voters to place the amendment on Florida’s 2020 ballot. Once on the ballot, a Florida constitutional amendment must gain 60 percent of the vote to become law. “The assault rifle, and its ability to fire approximately one hundred rounds a minute, can be purchased legally with no proof of...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Thursday threw a cryptic curveball at Brett Kavanaugh, insinuating the Supreme Court nominee could be guilty of a crime even as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation. The vague accusation comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee already grilled Kavanaugh and other witnesses and prepares to vote on sending his nomination to the full Senate. The White House blasted the ambiguous charge as a last minute gambit. “I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in her surprise statement. “That...

    Nehemiah served in a pagan government as a believer in God. He was humble and respectful to the king, but proper fear of his king did not stop him from acting to save his people. He prayed to God and made a request of the king, asking for permission to go to Jerusalem to rebuild it. He also asked for letters that he might present to various governors for safe conduct, and even a grant for building materials. Not all the pagan governors were sanguine toward Nehemiah and his plans. Indeed, some were fiercely resistant to them. When Sanballat the...

    Ten days after Nike announced that Colin Kaepernick would be the face of its “Just Do It” 30th anniversary ad campaign, the sports apparel behemoth’s stock price closed at an all-time high on Thursday at $83.47, according to a report from Bloomberg. Nike had previously faced a noticeable dip in its stock price in the immediate aftermath of its Kaepernick announcement, dropping nearly 3 percent in the next day of trading at the New York Stock Exchange. That fall has since been made up and more, with the current price slightly besting the company’s previous high of $83.00 from Wednesday...

    Complete Headline: Dem Senate Candidate Kyrsten Sinema Fought For Loophole Protecting Men Caught With Child Prostitutes Because Some 12-Year-Olds 'Look Older' Democratic Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a Senate nominee, fought to protect loopholes for men caught with child prostitutes, on the grounds that some 12-year-old children can look like adults. While serving in the state legislature, Sinema argued against eliminating a loophole that allowed men caught with child prostitutes to use the child's appearance as a defense. She claimed it was "not fair" to get rid of the loophole. "As a former social worker at an elementary school, there were...

    This is not a coat that many women could not carry off, which is reason enough I suppose for the Left to hate Melania. They seem to prefer schtrong women, like Cynthia Nixon…and her make-believe friends in the make-believe hit show:In real life Cynthia’s quest to unseat New York’s governor Andrew Coumo was just squashed. Apparently even New York was not quite ready to embrace her insurgent progressive agenda.But speaking of schtrong women and make-believe, I see Lady M’s about to launch her multi-million dollar book deal tour.

    The Democrat party has moved considerably to the left for the 2018 midterm elections.  As part of that strategy, they have wholeheartedly embraced gun control as a winning issue. Here is a Democrat strategist explaining their thoughts on July 6th. Opinion from Since 1994, Democrats have shied away from gun safety believing that this fight is nearly impossible for Democrats to engage in and win because NRA supporters are more organized, energized and monetized. 2018 could finally be the end of 1994 Now, less than 125 days to another midterm election, the times they are a'changing. Obviously, there...

    A random act of nature unfolded Tuesday when the most regal of American symbols, a bald eagle, perched atop a fire truck during a Twin Cities Sept. 11 ceremony. The unscripted landing added to the moment on the Main Street overpass above Hwy. 10 in Coon Rapids, where firefighters from various departments were paying their annual tribute to those who died 17 years ago in the coordinated terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and to the emergency responders who rushed into harm’s way. “Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” on-the-scene Andover Fire Chief Jerry Streich said...

And we’re really happy about that. – Bad actress Cynthia Nixon turned out to be an even worse far, far, far, far, far, far, far left-wing political candidate, as she got her whiny head handed to her in last night’s Democrat primary by ultra-corrupt New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Nixon couldn’t even get up to Wendy Davis numbers, pulling just 34.5% of the vote in the race. What the results showed was not how much the despicable Cuomo is loved by New York voters, but...

    Qamishli (Syria) (AFP) - Kurdish fighters in northern Syria detained an alleged Italian member of the Islamic State group as he was trying to flee across the border to Turkey, they said Thursday. The People's Protection Units (YPG) have captured several foreign IS fighters since the jihadists' so-called caliphate collapsed nearly a year ago. "On August 27, a mercenary called Semir Bogana was captured as a result of a special operation conducted by our Anti-Terror Units, when he was trying to flee to Turkey," said the YPG. It said Bogana -- an Italian citizen known also as Abu Hureyre al-Muhajir...
