  • Florida survivors push back after GOP activist says they're 'hijacked by left-wing groups'

    Student survivors of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who are taking the fight for gun control to the state and national level don’t appreciate seeing their organizing efforts being labeled as a left-wing conspiracy. “Their sorrow can very easily be hijacked by left-wing groups who have an agenda,” former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) told CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, specifically naming billionaire and liberal activist George Soros. “Do we really think 17-year-olds on their own are going to plan a nationwide rally?” the conservative activist continued. Incensed students went on the air following Kingston’s remarks to...

The interstate will stretch from metro Atlanta 40 miles south to Macon. GDOT Operations Director John Hibbard says it would...

Again, I think there’s gonna be another push to fire Sessions in favor of someone who will slap every Democrat with charges of collusion, election interference, and insulting Trump. Nunes is already implying that there’s corruption at the DOJ….

    The leading Democratic candidate for a Virginia House seat the party is targeting in 2018 moved to the state just a year-and-a-half ago, but you'd never know it from watching his campaign's first ad.Roger Dean Huffstetler, who is both outraising and outspending his Democratic opponents in Virginia's largely rural fifth district, announced his campaign less than a year after he moved in the summer of 2016 to Charlottesville, a blue city located near the center of a rural red district. His first ad—which, based on a nearly $50,000 expenditure, appears to have been created by a major D.C. advertising firm...

    This is the mummified dog who was found by loggers inside a tree trunk 20 years after he got stuck while chasing a 'raccoon' and starved to death in Georgia. The dog, known as Stuckie, was discovered in 1980 when loggers for the Kraft Corporation cut the oak into logs. They found the mummified hunting dog lodged in a hollow stretch near the top of the tree - and he is now the main attraction at Forest World, a tree museum in Waycross, Georgia. Stuckie's body was mummified instead of decomposing because the updraft of air in the hollow tree...

    How Putin is Winning and Losing Syria No one is in Syria because of ISIS. October 8, 2015 Daniel Greenfield    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The Russian line is that they’re in Syria to fight ISIS. But the Russians, like the Turks, Iranians and Europeans, don’t care about ISIS. By declaring itself a Caliphate, ISIS made itself non-aligned. The fighting in Syria isn’t about ISIS. It predated the rise of ISIS as a major player. It’s about Syria. ISIS has become a convenient excuse for...

Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Sen. Davild Perdue (R-Ga.) issued a joint statement Friday suggesting otherwise. “We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically,” Cotton and Perdue said. “But what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest.”
