    A billboard advertising the new Halloween movie opening Friday was altered after a street artist swapped out an image of serial killer Michael Myers and replaced it with one of Maxine Waters. The gigantic billboard at Pico Boulevard in West Hollywood remains intact, only the congresswoman is now holding the sharp butcher knife in her right hand, looking ready to plunge it into an unsuspecting victim. The phrase "#Uncivil Democrats" has also been added. Blumhouse and Universal are advertising the sequel to the 1978 classic slasher movie of the same title on several billboards in and around Hollywood, though in...
  • Dems' hoped for surge in Hispanic turnout an illusion

    Democrats have been touting their "blue wave" for months, believing that their anti-Trump, anti-GOP hysteria will drive minorities and women to the polls. But as we get closer to election day, it is becoming more apparent that this hoped for surge in turnout among their core constituencies is mostly a mirage. There are indications that two important groups – Republican women and Hispanics – will not be giving Democrats the boost at the polls that they hoped.  Republican women are "coming home" to vote for the GOP while there is no indication that Hispanics will turn out in any greater...

    Thousands of migrants from various countries in Central America forged on over the weekend, with numbers growing to more than 7,000 despite threats from President Donald Trump that hed dispatch the military should they reach the U.S. border. The fleet is composed mainly of individuals seeking jobs that arent available in their home countries or trying to find safety from drug and gang violence, but for a number of them, this wasnt their first time trying to reach the U.S.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. Nearly 570,000 Californians have already voted in the November election. That's about 100,000 more than voted at this point in the 2014 election. But roughly 3 million more Californians received mail-in ballots this year, about 12.5 million people total. Political Data Inc., which tracks voter data, shows the early voting pool leans Republican, white and older. That's typical compared to past elections. Democrats are hoping for more enthusiasm among their voters to win competitive U.S. House seats.

A massive hurricane (named Willa) is set to cross the path that the migrants will eventually cross. Theres also a slightly smaller disturbance named Vincente to the south of Willa that meteorologists say will be consumed by the massively growing Willa, but will still...

    New estimates cited by El Universal, a Mexican newspaper, say the caravan now has 14,000 people, many of them already in Mexico while others still wait One woman quoted by BBC, identified as Maria, walking with her husband and two children, said they are looking for work. That would put them in the category of illegal migrants, not asylum-seekers. Yet many appear confident they can take advantage of lax U.S. laws to gain a foothold in the shadows.

    President Trump announced Monday morning he is starting the process to cut or reduce aid to Central American countries that haven't stopped a caravan of illegal aliens. Over the past few days, the caravan has grown from 4,000 people to 7,000. Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2018 Over the weekend, President Trump again threatened to seal...

    In recent months Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and many other prominent Democrats have advocated for violence. They threw open Pandoras box labeled MOB, and their calls to action are bearing fruit. They happily unleashed the whirlwind, yet refuse to accept responsibility for the destruction they are causing. Ricin laced letters are sent to Senators homes. Shrieking mobs attack innocent drivers and passersby in Portland and elsewhere. GOP candidates and staffers have been physically attacked, leaving one with a concussion. Shrieking mob harpies turned the Senate building into a zone of insanity with their chants, screams, and...

    Despite media claims to the contrary, election Mexican officials previously promised to allow the invasion of Central American migrants. There is a history here. Heavily financed horde of Central American migrants has overwhelmed token resistance from Mexican military and advanced north toward Southern U.S. border. As described by Associated Press today: growing army of migrants resumes march toward US. This is a well financed, well organized, left-wing political operation strategically timed to reach the U.S. border and coincide with the 2018 mid-term election.Estimates as to the number of economic migrants varies between 7,000 to 10,000 and the numbers are growing...

    California will reconsider life sentences for up to 4,000 nonviolent third-strike criminals by allowing them to seek parole under a ballot measure approved by voters two years ago, according to court documents obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday. The state will craft new regulations by January to include the repeat offenders in early release provisions. Gov. Jerry Brown also will not appeal a court ruling that the state is illegally excluding the nonviolent career criminals from parole under the 2016 ballot measure he championed to reduce the prison population and encourage rehabilitation. The state parole board estimates between 3,000...
