  • White evangelical voters in southwestern Ohio reluctantly embrace Trump

    LEBANON — Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both have a problem winning over white evangelical Christians in Republican-rich southwestern Ohio. Most don’t like either one of them. But make no mistake: Most evangelicals REALLY dislike Clinton, the Democratic former secretary of state. They see her as too liberal, favoring abortion and same-sex marriage, and a serious threat to religious freedom through her potential appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court. Many evangelicals don’t know much about Trump, the Republican businessman, developer and reality-television star. They acknowledge being troubled by his background, multiple marriages and bravado, but they say they’re willing to...

    Many are arguing over the winner of the so-called debate on Monday night between Trump and Clinton. Many argue that Clinton did not win that encounter. In fact, there are a host of polls that show Trump far above Clinton for the evening. And those few that do show Clinton as the winner have secondary questions also polled that are actually favorable to Trump. It appears that undecided saw that encounter and are largely moving to Trump How should we view it? First, bear in mind that it wasn't a debate. It was a joint press inquiry. In that inquiry,...

    Cooler weather and the threat of rain didn’t deter dozens of people from showing their support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at a support rally in Saginaw Township Tuesday, Sep. 27. Between 4:00-6:30 p.m. people held signs, listened to music and enjoyed brats and hot dogs in the festive atmosphere at the GOP headquarters at 3039 Bay Rd. People honked their horns as they passed by to encourage those gathered. Trump’s Saginaw County campaign director Debra Mantey says the event was to show people it’s possible to shift the state in Trump’s favor. “This is just the second round...

    Every US state has a motto. Some are interesting, like “Live Free of Die,” in New Hampshire, and some are sadly truthful, like, “Our Government is Vampiric” in Massachusetts. Just kidding. It’s more along the lines of “We’ll Tax You to Death,” or something like that. Anyway, some, like the motto for the 49th state, Alaska, are very upbeat and offer a sense of adventure. In Alaska, politicians tell us to look, “North, to The Future.” But, a shocking move by the federal government might inspire Alaskans to change their motto to, “Our Land Is Being Stolen By The Feds!”...

    Trump signs in her backyard. Trump magnets on her refrigerator. Trump buttons on her dining room table. Kathy Miller is the Mahoning County chairwoman for Donald Trump. While handing out Trump signs in June at a Republican headquarters just south of Youngstown, Ohio, she was approached by a woman in her late 80s, who said, “I have never voted Republican in my life. Give me the biggest sign you’ve got.” In economically struggling communities like Mahoning County — where most steel mills have closed — many white, working-class Democrats are voting for Trump, registration records and 2016 presidential primary results...

    Now that our monsoon is winding down, perhaps you are noticing areas on your property where heavy rainfalls have begun to wash away one of your most precious resources – your soil. Depending on the topography of your property, you may notice areas of bare ground, new small channels that are forming or older channels that are deepening with every rain event. Soil erosion is a natural and human-caused phenomenon worldwide and can even be seen from space through satellite imagery. For example, a quick peak on Google Maps of the delta south of New Orleans shows a very muddy,...

Unless you happen to be a heavenly being on a deluxe slumming tour of our charming little planet, you are probably part devil and part angel. The only difference is the degree to which either entity is in greater control than the other at any given time. Of course, we do not mean to imply that an actual miniature devil sits on one shoulder and a miniature angel on the other whispering in your ears,...

A second bomb was uncovered by police four blocks away and defused safely, before being sent to the FBI in Virginia for forensic examination.

They weren't always successful. "Whenever they flip you the finger, just blow them a kiss," suggested one supporter. The Pasadena gathering was the first of two roadside demonstrations Sunday for the group that just formed in June. Co-founder Renee Garza clutched...

    You have to admit there is a twisted sense of satisfaction derived from delivering a good insult. It is even more gratifying when your intended target does not realize it is an insult. Now, do not be squishy. No one is immune to the innate desire and even need to retaliate against folks who caused physical or mental anguish to you or someone near and dear to you. Sometimes turning the other cheek is not an option, particularly if the object of your retaliatory insult suffers from the pachyderm syndrome – thick skinned, thick headed and vocabulary disadvantaged.

In this working-class suburb of Tampa Bay, finding people enthusiastically supporting Hillary Clinton is tough. Finding people enthusiastically supporting Trump is less difficult. Finding people fed up with the status quo is a piece of cake. “It’s not that I like Trump that much, it’s that I dislike Hillary so much.

    Oil Price ^ | September 15, 2016 | Michael McDonald
    Apache’s recent oil find highlights what could be a new phase in fracking. To date, fracking in the U.S. had really been all about taking explored basins and drilling new wells to get at previously untapped resources. That strategy worked well when oil prices were more than $80 a barrel. At today’s prices though, drilling the old style rigs in mostly depleted fields to get at residual layers of black gold is a money losing strategy. Apache’s find shows that money can be made by taking risks and looking for major new finds in areas that had been passed over...

    Recently, the Virginia Supreme Court agreed to hear a lawsuit filed against FCPS by the conservative organization Liberty Counsel, which represented an anonymous FCPS student and his/her parents. The student alleges that his/her civil rights were violated by the FCPS policies that allow individuals to use restrooms, locker rooms, and showers based on their "gender identity", not their actual, physical, gender. According to the Liberty Counsel, the FCPS policy constitutes an invasion of privacy. The lawsuit was appealed from the Fairfax Circuit Court, where Judge Brett Kassabian dismissed it on procedural grounds. However, the Virginia Supreme Court disagreed with the...

    The conventional wisdom is that the city fathers of big cities and gangs are at opposite ends of the spectrum. That may be true in many cities but it isn’t true in Chicago. The incestuous relationship between aldermen and gangs blurs the line between good and evil. 85 years of Democratic rule has left Chicago with a reputation as the most corrupt city in the US. It is well earned. Aldermen are kings (or queens) of their wards. They wield immense power. They control patronage jobs, zoning, city contracts, property tax reduction and permits in their wards.

    Singapore reported another big batch of Zika virus cases Sunday, bringing its total count in just a week to 215, and World Health Organization officials said the spread of the virus definitely still constitutes a global health emergency. Zika's apparent quick spread out of Latin America and in Asia and Africa has WHO officials worried. They have no idea if the virus will spread as explosively as it has in the Americas, and they cannot predict if it will cause a fresh wave of birth defects and side-effects such as the paralyzing Guillain-Barré syndrome. They don't even know if they...

    Jund al Aqsa, an al Qaeda front group in Syria, has released a video showing one of its small drones dropping a bomb on Syrian regime forces in Hama province. The unguided bomb doesn’t appear to have been especially effective, but the video is noteworthy because it documents the Sunni jihadis’ further experimentation with explosives. Iran’s chief terrorist proxy, Hezbollah, was reportedly an early adopter of drones for use in its operations. Over the past year, Al Qaeda-linked groups and others have increasingly used commercial drones and similar technology to record their propaganda videos. The Long War Journal has previously...

    The extended drought in California has farmers looking for ways to use less water. Among them: growing feed indoors using hydroponics. The new diet is making some Central Valley sheep very happy. On Golden Valley Farm an hour north of Fresno, Mario Daccarett's employees milk 500 sheep every day, in rounds of 12. This creamy milk eventually is turned into cheese and sold at places like Whole Foods. "They tell me that our Golden Ewe cheese is the best for grilled cheese sandwich ever," Daccarett says. (I bought some and it was really tasty.) He says he gets about 800...

    A newly released photo, taken by a FCPS student and sent to ResistanceMedia.org, shows a poster in a Fairfax school that warns of the consequences of "sexting", or sending sexual images through text messages. The photo of the poster appears below: Notice the image of a girl with a cell phone, posing suggestively. The poster warns that "sending sexually explicit photos by cell phone, computer, or any electronic device may be a felony." However, if that model in the poster is under 18, it may be FCPS who is committing a felony. Disseminating sexual images of children is considered a...

    A former refugee who lied about "fearing persecution" to gain admission to the United States just got his citizenship revoked and landed more than four years in prison when it turned out he was actually a genocidal maniac who did quite a bit of persecuting, himself. Mladen Mitrovic, 55, of Loganville, Ga., was sentenced to 57 months in prison for “providing false and fraudulent information on his naturalization application” after having been admitted into the United States as a refugee from Bosnia in 1996. It turns out Mitrovic had lied about being persecuted in the then-war-torn nation to gain admission into the...

    At least 11 people were injured — one critically, nearly losing an arm — when a ferry heading to New Jersey hit people kayaking, according to police. Five people were taken to hospitals near Jersey City, most with minor shoulder and back injuries after the Hudson River accident. The NYPD Harbor Unit says the instructor suffered a partially severed arm, according to WABC-TV. The incident happened just before 6 p.m. Tuesday near Pier 79 on Manhattan's west side as a group of 10 kayakers were paddling down the river, according to News12. The group was riding in eight kayaks, and...

    What is going on lately with the growing trend of young parents or family of very young children killing them?! Another human waste of space, 24-year-old Zachary Tricoche of Pennsauken, N.J., repeatedly punched a two-year-old whose injuries from the punches resulted in his death on Saturday. The name of the mother was not reported, but the boy’s name was Jamil Baskerville Jr. Apparently this pile of garbage, Tricoche, was upset and had been fighting with the mother of the child, who was also his girlfriend, over her not buying some of the groceries he liked. Maybe Tricoche could get off...

    The Sea Bears Ogden Fish House has become prosperous as a restaurant that welcomes and practices the open carry of firearms.  They have done so well they needed to move to a larger venue.  That venue was Union Station in Ogden.There are four museums at the station. One is the John M. Browning Firearms Museum, another is the Utah State Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, a third is the Browning Classic Car Museum, and the fourth is the Utah State Railroad Museum.  It seems like a good fit. From standard.net: For more than a year now, owners, employees and...

    Black Lives Matter protesters campaigning for "justice" over the death of a man under police restraint occupied a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) office demanding action. Campaigners raising awareness about the case of Kingsley Burrell, who died in 2011 following contact with police, staged a noisy but non-violent demonstration in the Colmore Gate offices in Birmingham after an earlier rally in the city. The protest dispersed when a senior manager from the West Midlands CPS agreed to take a letter from the campaign group raising 10 key points in Mr Burrell's case, and pass it to the director of public prosecutions...

    Driving to the Ranch through the Mohawk valley, east of Yuma, I noticed the gentleman pictured above.  I stopped to take his picture and determine his business. You can see that the soil in this area is a fluffy loam.  It is highly productive, irrigated by Colorado River water.  This area near Yuma is some of the most productive agricultural land in the United States and in the world. Leo did not mind having his picture taken.  I asked him if he were guarding the field from birds that would eat the seeds.  No, he said, ground squirrels. He...

    The Baltimore County Board of Education on Tuesday voted 6-5 against closing schools for two Muslim holidays when they fall on school days. According to the Baltimore Sun, the Muslim community had advocated for more than a decade to close Baltimore schools on the Islamic holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. The vote followed a heated discussion among school board members as dozens of Muslims waited in the audience. The results of the vote prompted shouts of “Injustice!” by some in attendance, and the board had to call a five-minute recess before continuing. …
  • "Student Journalists": Puppets of the Liberal Establishment

    In schools across America, "student newspapers" are common activities for middle and high school students who are interested in journalism, media, or technology. However, these "student newspapers" often are little more than mouthpieces for the liberal public school elites. A perfect example of this can be found in Alexandria, Virginia. The West Potomac Wire, a "student-run" publication associated with West Potomac High School, claims to be the "student voice of West Potomac High School." But if their news content is to be believed, that voice is overwhelmingly liberal, and fully content with stretching facts, exaggerating, and forthrightly lying. I challenge...

    A woman openly carrying a Glock was threatened by an armed felon in the early morning hours of 1 August, 2016.  She was leaving the gas station with a drink in her hand and the Glock on her hip.  Her daughter would be turning three in about a week. From abc15.com: Miracle said she was leaving the Circle K near 59th Avenue and Camelback Road with her family early Monday morning when the suspect, Frank Taylor , tried to bum a cigarette. She told him that she didn’t have one, and then seconds later, Miracle said, she could feel...
