    (WND) – State looks to allow men who identify as women to use restroom of choice A move by the state of Iowa to classify churches as “public accommodations” and require them to allow men who say they are women to use women’s restrooms is causing an “objectively reasonable” fear that they will be prosecuted, a federal judge has ruled. U.S. District Judge Stephanie Rose refused to dismiss a case brought by the Fort Des Moines Church of Christ against the state’s Civil Rights Commission, finding that the church already was self-censoring its statements because of a fear of prosecution....

    Monday in an appearance on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) made the argument that claims of election rigging cannot be completely dismissed. He told “New Day” host Chris Cuomo there was “significant evidence” of voter fraud. “There’s significant evidence out there that there’s voter fraud,” King said. When challenged by Cuomo that making such claims were dangerous, King explained that one couldn’t be completely dismissive of the possibility and cited a number of examples from over the past two decades to back up his argument. “I wouldn’t say it is completely unsubstantiated,” he replied. “Partially unsubstantiated – I...

    TOLEDO, Iowa (AP) — They were, says Denise Kirchner, “the worst three hours of my life” — the agonizing moments after her son accidently shot her and her 14-year-old daughter Madison while cleaning his semi-automatic gun in their Iowa home. Madison skirted death, but survived. She is living proof, her mother says, of what can happen when otherwise responsible gun owners have a safety lapse. Dylan, 18, had been trying to remove a bullet from the chamber of the .40-caliber handgun when it fired, Toledo Police Chief Bob Kendall said.

But now the Obama administration, bowing to radical left wing protestors, has thrown the project into doubt with its unprecedented decision last Friday to halt construction on one section of the project. Apparently infrastructure investment is not the priority we were led to believe. The project in question is known as the Dakota Access Pipeline. It...

    The GWU Battleground Poll published on September 9 shows Donald Trump a clear path to victory: win the conservative vote. The data in this poll has been consistent over the last two decades, and the data in the latest poll is no different. The overwhelming majority of Americans are self-identified conservatives. The September 2016 Battleground Poll shows that 54% of all Americans are self-identified conservatives and only 38% are self-identified liberals, which means that if the tiny "moderate" 3% and the equally tiny "unsure/refused" 4% are excluded, then the conservative candidate would beat the liberal candidate by a landslide of...
