    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - GOP Congressman Todd Young is accusing Democrats of using dirty tricks in an effort to get his name removed from the ballot in the race for U.S. Senate. And Republican leaders are expressing concern over the possibility that the Democrats will be successful. In order to make the ballot, a candidate must gather 500 petition signatures in each of Indiana's 9 congressional districts. Todd Young collected just 498 in the 1st Congressional District according to Democrats who have filed a challenge with the state Election Commission. The Todd Young campaign believes that it has 501 certified signatures...

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - An Indianapolis manufacturing facility is moving operations to Mexico, impacting 1,400 jobs. Carrier, currently located on West Morris Street, will be moving operations to Monterrey, Mexico beginning in 2017. The move is expected to be complete in 2019.

    In 2009, Obama stole money from retired teachers and police officers in Indiana During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured creditors worse than unsecured creditors. Some of these secured creditors were retired teachers and police officers from Indiana. Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law, wrote of this:"Upsetting this fixed hierarchy among creditors is just an illegal taking of property from one group of creditors for the benefit of another, which should be struck down on both statutory and constitutional...

    Indiana may have lost as much as $60 million in hotel profits, tax revenue and other economic benefits when a dozen groups decided against hosting conventions in Indianapolis last year due at least in part to the controversy surrounding the state's religious objections law. A document prepared by the tourism group Visit Indy shows that the 12 out-of-state groups were surveyed and all said that the state's controversial law played a role in their decision to hold their events elsewhere. The document was obtained by The Associated Press ahead of its formal release Thursday. The Republican-backed law garnered quick and...

During the president's CNN town hall meeting on gun control Thursday he spotlighted the number of illegal guns in Chicago.

    Which is obvious to anyone not intentionally misreading it. The real news here is not that Antonin Scalia said this, but that it’s the slightest bit controversial. But that’s not something that happened overnight. The secular left and their media servants have spent decades pushing the idea that the establishment clause is about protecting the non-religious from maniacal Jesus freaks - especially the nightmare scenario in which the Jesus freaks get a job with any public entity and are guided in any decision by biblical principles. Scalia is a man who actually knows about the founding of the nation and...

    The long-running feud between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump escalated yet again Saturday, with the former Florida governor releasing a two-minute video on social media mocking the billionaire's fitness to be commander-in-chief. *snip* The clip is the latest salvo in the Bush-Trump rivalry, which has often been marked by bitter and personal exchanges between the two prominent Republican presidential candidates. On Friday, Trump suggested Bush's brother, former President George W. Bush, shared in the blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks because they occurred during his presidency. Saturday's round centered on a video set to the tune of circus music that...

    Time Capsule Found at 1950s Mental Hospital, Contains Film With Message For the Future Construction crews in Indiana were shocked to discover a time capsule from 1958 at a former mental hospital.

What were they saying in the damaged parts of the film? Was it a warning? Did they know something that we dont?!?! When the psychiatrists of the future open this time capsule, only they will be...

    CULVER, Ind. (21Alive) -- A prestigious school west of Fort Wayne, known for its military disciplines, is causing a stir with a policy change regarding firearms. That change comes near the time of the latest terrible school massacre in the U.S. Considering Culver's roots as a military school dating back to 1894, it was a surprise when last week Culver Academies school officials announced security officers would no longer carry weapons. The school administration declined to talk on camera and said allowing us to interview students would go against the best interest of their safety. A statement released by Culver,...
