    DENVER­–The Left views The American Legislative Exchange Council as a pawn of corporate influence. There were some protests at the organizations annual meeting in Denver, Colorado in July. They were mild. No fires were started, and no vandalism occurred. They came, they chanted, and then they dispersed. That was it. While progressives chanted the usual liberal talking points outside of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Denver, a significant number of state legislators were figuring out a way to knock out what seems to be an unstoppable killer: opioids. Around 1,700 people attended the event held in July, where the topic...

    HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Connecticut lawmakers were working at the State Capitol on Friday in the final days of the session. Democrats said they were finding it harder to get bills passed, now that Republicans have more seats and carry more weight. "They said they wanted to lead. They told the voters in the state of Connecticut give us more seats and we will be at the table, House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz said. And you know what we have heard, we will offer no votes."

    Catherine Engelbrecht, president of True the Vote, talked with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Friday regarding President Trumps executive order establishing the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which will investigate voter fraud and offer recommendations. Engelbrecht said of voter fraud in America, We are, in my opinion, on the verge of a systemic crisis for a lot of reasons. The first is, we are not evaluating the people that we are allowing to register to vote. We are not doing any sort of reconciliation for identity, residency, citizenship. We dont know that these people are...

    Syrias Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem on Monday said there had been an apparent change of attitude towards Syria by the US administration following the Russian plan for de-escalation zones. It seems the United States, where (President Donald) Trump has said the Syrian crisis has dragged on too long, might have come to the conclusion that there must be an understanding with Russia on a solution. Asked about US backing for Kurdish groups fighting Islamic State in northeast Syria, Moualem said that what Syrian Kurds were doing against the jihadist group was legitimate at this stage and fell within the framework...

    Debt is not just an American or Chinese problem. The EU is equally mortified with debt and the problem is not just in Greece. As per the Maastricht Treaty, the countries EU states cannot have debt more than 60% of their GDPs. Currently, the situation is nowhere close to this ideal as 21 countries have passed this limit and 5 have more debt than their GDP. The situation is serious with Greece, where the debt is 177 percent of the GDP. While the world is focusing on Greeces extreme debt crisis, Italy and Portugal easily miss the spotlight despite having...

    FROM AN EMAIL RECEIVED TONIGHT: A very interesting speculation and frightening theory about the upcoming election and the next four years of U.S. government. At first I thought it a bit farfetched. But as I thought about it, maybe it could happen! The theory as explained: "I believe that Hillary Clinton will win the election in November," . "Then, sometime between November and January, Hillary will be indicted. The IRS is now investigating the Clinton Foundation and the whole e-mail thing isn't over yet." "Once under indictment she won't be able to assume the Office of the President in January....

    Hospitals are to cancel thousands of operations and appointments in a desperate bid to stop the NHS "buckling" this winter, under Government plans. Health officials are drawing up contingency measures to attempt to safeguard emergency care by diverting senior doctors from operating theatres into wards and Accident & Emergency departments as winter sets in. The national plan, detailed in evidence to the Commons health select committee, comes amid concern that the NHS is already in the grip of the worst bed-blocking crisis on record. Last night, Britains most senior A&E doctor said hospitals were under such strain that a bad...

    Thousands of Catholic pilgrims thronged to the French shrine of Lourdes on Monday for Assumption celebrations held under tight security after the murder of a priest, the latest victim in a series of jihadist attacks. The gathering at the sanctuary in the foothills of the Pyrenees is the first major Catholic event in France since priest Jacques Hamel was killed by two jihadists who stormed his church during mass on July 26 and slit his throat. Groups from across Europe, the Middle East and Asia traveled to Lourdes for the occasion, one of the biggest in the Christian calendar. "We've...

    Evolutionary Crisis and the Third Way by Jeffrey P. Tomkins, Ph.D. * Evidence for Creation Modern evolutionary theory has never been without its problems and controversieseven among secular scientists. Famed evolutionist Douglas Futuyma recently stated: Ever since the Evolutionary Synthesis of the 1930s and 1940s, some biologists have expressed doubt that the Synthetic Theory [the prevailing modern version of evolution, also called neo-Darwinism], based principally on mutation, genetic variation, and natural selection, adequately accounts for macroevolution, or evolution above the species level.1 In fact, two of the most prominent and vocal skeptics were actually the leading neo-Darwinist evolutionists of their...

    Angelo Mozilo can finally get on with his life. This month the Justice Department told Mr. Mozilo, the former chief executive of Countrywide Financial, once the nations largest subprime mortgage lender, that he was no longer under investigation in connection with civil mortgage fraud. The governments criminal inquiry into Mr. Mozilos role in the financial crisis was dropped previously, so he is now in the clear. At least thats the view from Washington. On Main Street, where the pain of Countrywides reckless lending and abusive foreclosure practices still throbs, its safe to say that Mr. Mozilo is still identified as...
