    Ever since the failed witch hunt against the Covington boys in Kentucky, a lot of leftists have been ranting online about ending charter schools, Catholic schools because it "breeds "white supremacy". Why? What's their end game?
  • Audit: More than 10 million Americans feeling SALT cap pain

    Nearly 11 million Americans nationwide would have been capped from deducting more than $323 billion in state and local taxes in 2017 because of changes enacted in the GOP's tax reform legislation, according to an audit released Tuesday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration — and expect similar results for the 2018 tax year. The 28-page report offers a new window into the full scope of the $10,000 cap on SALT deductions, which is supported by the White House and top congressional Republicans but has been heavily criticized by the leaders of many high-tax Democratic states, including New...

    MT. HOLLY, N.J. — It was another brutal end (to another brutal week) for the rapidly-collapsing Burlington County Republican Party. On Saturday, Sheriff Jean Stanfied’s (R-Westampton) long-speculated decision to NOT seek reelection in 2019 became public.

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders gave her first press briefing in weeks on Tuesday, and she faced a barrage of questions over President Donald Trump‘s demand for border wall funding. ABC News’s Terry Moran was scathing in his questioning, directly confronting Sanders over Trump’s nonsensical claim that his USMCA trade deal with Mexico will result in the country paying for a wall on its border.

    Illinois has long been a blue state, mainly because of the way Chicagoans lean. But if state Republicans had hopes of gaining, or even maintaining ground last Tuesday, their hopes were quickly quashed. Democrats ousted Republicans in the race for governor and in two key congressional districts, and the General Assembly locked in Democratic supermajorities in both houses. So where do Republicans in Illinois stand today, and what’s to come?

    PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Thanksgiving is nothing to celebrate for Native Americans, who are gathering in the town where the Pilgrims settled for a solemn National Day of Mourning observance. Thursday's noon gathering in downtown Plymouth, Massachusetts, will recall the disease, racism and oppression that the European settlers brought. It's the 49th year that the United American Indians of New England have organized the event on Thanksgiving Day.

    Tuesday’s midterm House elections saw Democrats fare much better than they did in the 2016 presidential contest. Two years ago, Hillary Clinton topped Donald Trump by 4.6 percent in the popular vote, while this week, Democratic House candidates received 9 percent more votes than their Republican counterparts.

    Democrat J.D. Ford pulled off a big upset Tuesday, unseating state Sen. Mike Delph, a Republican who has served the district since 2005. With two-thirds of precincts reporting, Ford held a 57 percent to 43 percent lead over Delph. “I wanted District 29 to be heard and with our win tonight, they will be,” Ford told fellow Democratic supporters Tuesday night. “Now you have a voice in the Indiana General Assembly.” Ford is thought to be Indiana’s first openly gay state lawmaker. “Ladies and gentleman, we just made history and no one can take that from us,” Ford said. It...

    Democrat Katie Porter unseated incumbent Rep. Mimi Walters (R-Calif.), marking the first time Democrats have won the inland Orange County district since its creation in 1983. The Associated Press called the race on Thursday, nine days after Election Day. Walters, a former Laguna Niguel mayor and state lawmaker, had aligned herself with the unpopular President Trump this past election cycle. She was one of a handful of vulnerable Republicans who voted for and defended both Trump’s Obamacare repeal bill and his tax cuts law.

    What's up with Charlie Skyes? He has been surly and gloomy since Donald Trump won the GOP nomination and the presidency in 2016. Is his lack of enthusiasm hurting Scott Walker in Wisconsin, especially conservative fortress Waukesha? What's going on over there? My friend lives in Waukesha and is worried about some guy Evers in the polls against Walker.

    The controversy over a campaign staffer to Republican state Sen. Martin Golden inviting an alt-right leader to speak at a GOP club continued to escalate as a Bay Ridge social justice organization demonstrated in front of the lawmaker’s campaign headquarters and supporters staunchly defended him. The group Bay Ridge for Social Justice held a protest rally outside Golden’s campaign office at 7615 Third Ave. on Oct. 21 to demand that the senator fire Ian Reilly.

    Five Hard Truths That Will Set You Free Msgr. Charles Pope • July 11, 2017 • I have received many requests to republish a post from several years ago. The following five truths from that essay are indeed hard. They rock our world and stab at the heart of some of our most cherished modern notions. If they can be accepted for the truth they convey, however, they bring great peace. These truths are not only good medicine for our collective self-absorption but they also help us to have more realistic expectations as we live out our lives in...

    After Justice Antonin Scalia's death Saturday at 79, the Supreme Court is now evenly divided between four liberal justices and four conservatives, even with Anthony Kennedy's occasional swings. What a moment for Scalia to depart: The court faces a wild array of closely divided decisions. It is an election year. And President Obama has stacked the lower circuit courts with Democrats. Obama has been chewing on his legacy for months. Fate has handed him the opportunity of any presidency -- to swing the balance of the Supreme Court from conservative to liberal. Scalia weighed heavily on the conservative tilt of...

    Somebody cue the Debbie Downer horn. How bad are things for President Obama? In recent days, the Washington Post has brought us a double-barreled downer blast from two pundits who normally support the president. All you need to know about Dana Milbank's and Ruth Marcus' columns you can glean from their respective final sentences, which read: "Maybe the president does understand that the game is over." And "Can he recover? I’m sorry to say: I’m not at all confident." Wah-wah, indeed! More here.

    In the classic movie “History of the World Part 1,” Mel Brooks famously said, “It’s good to be the king!” He was playing King Louis XVI, the French monarch who eventually lost his head over his excesses while the people suffered. Democrats enjoy acting like they are the peasants in the modern-day version of that struggle, but nothing could be further from the truth. Although they may talk a good game, “Let them eat cake” is their mantra … only, since they seek to control everything we do, including what we eat, it’s sugar-free carrot cake. Corruption starts at the...

    The US Senate passed the Patty Murray (former pre-school teacher, now Chair of Senate Budget Committee) budget by a razor thin majority of 50-49. Her budget calls for $1 trillion in ADDITIONAL taxes over the next 10 years and an increase in Federal debt of $7.3 trillion. Needless to say, the Murray budget never balances. No wonder parents don’t want her teaching personal finance to their children! The House of Representative have passed the Ryan budget which actually DOES balance the budget over ten years by a vote of 221-207. Needless to say, it took the Senate 4 years to...

    Dani Gilbert, newly appointed Jewish outreach liaison and staffer Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), is facing a growing firestorm of controversy after a number of publications picked up on a picture posted to her Facebook account where Gilbert refers to herself and her friends as “Jewbags” and the “Jew cash money team.” The picture dates back to 2006 – but is enjoying new life today as a number of publications have picked up on the derogatory caption beneath the photograph.
