  • REPORT: REDSKINS WILL ATTEND KAEPERNICK WORKOUT. WHY?

    In my post yesterday about Colin Kaepernick’s upcoming NFL workout session, I confessed to not knowing the NFL well enough to opine on whether it makes sense for a particular team to sign Kaepernick. However, there’s one team I know very well — the Washington Redskins. There is no good reason for the Redskins to sign Kaepernick. They have won just one game this season and, in an optimistic scenario, they might win three. The rest of the season will be devoted to providing experience for their number one pick in the 2019 draft — quarterback Dwayne Haskins. He will...

    ... Hartman said that during the time the restaurants were open, employees and patrons were harassed by people who took issue with the politics of Kris Kobach, the controversial politician who lost his bid to become Kansas governor last November with Hartman as his running mate. Kobach, the former Kansas Secretary of State, is now a Republican U.S. Senate candidate. From the first day the restaurants opened, Hartman said, people were writing obscene messages on menus, spitting on his employees, urinating on employees’ cars and shouting at people who went into the restaurant that they should eat somewhere else. “We...

    Washington Times ^ | Ryan Lovelace
    Sen. Lindsey Graham is preparing to relinquish his chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee to Sen. Charles E. Grassley in the next Congress, beginning in 2021. The South Carolina Republican’s staff confirmed Thursday that Mr. Graham would step aside, but he is poised to remain in the seat throughout the next year. Mr. Graham has worked as chairman since the outset of 2019 to confirm President Trump’s federal judicial nominees, and he has been a vocal opponent of the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. Ahead of the House’s vote to formalize certain aspects of its impeachment inquiry on Thursday, Mr. Graham said...

    FULL TITLE: Kansans for Life announces opposition to pro-abortion and activist applicants for the Kansas Supreme Court The Kansas Supreme Court Nominating Commission is meeting this week to interview applicants for a seat on the Kansas Supreme Court. In the wake of the Kansas Supreme Court’s recent decision finding a right to abortion in the Kansas Constitution, it is clear that ideology matters when selecting a Justice to the Kansas Supreme Court. For this reason, Kansans for Life opposes Judges Melissa Standridge and Evelyn Wilson in their consideration for a seat on the Court. “Both of these applicants are extreme...

    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    Kansas City, Kansas, police were still searching for one suspect, Hugo Villanueva-Morales, 29, in connection with the shootings at the Tequila KC bar early Sunday that also wounded another five people. Officers arrested the second man, Javier Alatorre, 23, late Sunday afternoon. Bartender Jose Valdez told The Star that he had refused to serve one of the suspects because the man had previously caused problems at the bar. Valdez said the man threw a cup at him and left, but that he returned later with another man shortly before closing time. Authorities identified the four people killed as Francisco Anaya-Garcia,...

    Thousands of pro-lifers stood outside in all kinds of weather Sunday to pray for unborn babies and their mothers. People gathered in about 1,600 communities in the United States and Canada for the annual Life Chain, according to organizers. The event brings pro-lifers together in their local communities to pray for an end to abortion and peacefully witness to the truth about life in the womb. In West Reading, Pennsylvania, about 75 people stood on the sidewalks in the rain, holding signs encouraging mothers to choose life, the Reading Eagle reports. “We got rained on quite well but people stayed...

    James Kraig Kahler intentionally shot and killed his wife, their two teenage daughters and Mrs. Kahler’s grandmother in 2009. Now he’s going to the Supreme Court. At his Kansas trial, the defense psychiatrist testified that Mr. Kahler had lost touch with reality due to a serious mental disorder. But the defendant couldn’t offer an insanity defense, because Kansas passed a law abolishing it in 1995. Some form of an insanity defense has been part of English law since the late Middle Ages.

"I’m here to tell you now that I am going to get in," he told Fox News. ​The announcement comes a week after Sanford hinted that he could enter the presidential race. The lawmaker, however, will...

    Republican officials in multiple states are on the verge of canceling their 2020 presidential primary elections in a show of support for President Donald Trump, even as some GOP candidates plan to challenge him. Party leaders in South Carolina, Nevada and Arizona have all expressed support for nixing their presidential primaries, and are expected to make it official over the coming weeks. Leaders of the South Carolina and Nevada Republican parties will each meet Saturday to reach a decision, while the Arizona GOP Executive Committee will discuss its decision at a Sept. 14 meeting. Kansas Republicans are also considering nixing...

    Full title: Kansas University faculty wants Chick-fil-A banned from campus for fears of 'safety,' 'mental well being' “The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels,” the Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council wrote in a two-page letter, accusing university leaders of being "more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well being of marginalized and LGBTQ people."

    If you thought LGBTQ activists in the University of Kansas faculty were mad before, wait till you see them now. Following years of demands that the taxpayer-funded institution discriminate against a vendor because of its founders’ religious beliefs, the KU administration actually gave its Chick-fil-A restaurant a better place on campus, The Kansas City Star reports. Before you assume this was a bold move in favor of viewpoint diversity and fair treatment, it actually fits your other stereotype of universities: that they do everything for financial reasons. KU’s 10-year contract with Chick-fil-A requires upgrades to its location in the basement...

    School is back in session folks, and the latest leftist lesson this semester is that if you enjoy a tasty, mouthwatering juicy chicken sandwich from Chick-Fil-A then you're a bigot. In fact, some professors at the University of Kansas feel so strongly that the Christian company is a hatemongering behemoth of evil, that they are demanding their school boycott and remove the sandwich chain from their campus. The Kansas City Star reports that Chick-Fil-A previously had a spot tucked away in the basement of an obscure building on campus. But, after a new contract, the eatery was moved to a...

It started with a magnitude-2.4 earthquake Wednesday morning just 2 1/2 miles southwest of Hutchinson, Kansas, in Reno County, according to the United States Geological Survey. There would be 10 more before the week was out.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reversed course late Friday, agreeing to key union demands as nearly two-thirds of its research staff will leave the agency rather than move to new headquarters in the Kansas City area. The announcement follows a tumultuous few weeks at the USDA where employees were given a month to decide if they would uproot from D.C. by Sept. 30 or lose their jobs that same day. Employees at both the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) — two of the major research wings within USDA — unionized in...
