    PALM SPRINGS — A tour bus returning home to Los Angeles from a casino trip plowed into the back of a semi-truck on a California highway early Sunday, killing 13 people and injuring 31 others, authorities said. A maintenance crew had slowed down traffic on Interstate 10 before the vehicles crashed just north of the desert resort town of Palm Springs, California Highway Patrol Border Division Chief Jim Abele said. The work had gone on for hours without problems, he said.

    FORT HUACHUCA — Four members of B Troop — representing Fort Huachuca’s 1880s historic soldiers on horseback — returned from the National Cavalry Competition at Fort Reno, Okla., last month with top honors. “We cleaned house,” smiled Martina Peters, who has been a B Troop member for 12 years. “For a small group of all-volunteers, we did exceptionally well,” she added. B Troop, 4th Cavalry Regiment (Memorial), with Chris Zimmerman as program coordinator, came home with the Best Cavalry Unit honors, as well as the coveted Major Howze award, a mobility test consisting of a mock saber charge. The group...

    Wednesday, October 19, 2016 GOP opponent calls for Schakowsky's resignation in light of undercover videos CHICAGO - Standing in front of Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky's Chicago office Wednesday, GOP challenger Joan McCarthy Lasonde called for the six-term Democrat to resign after undercover videos appeared to reveal Schakowsky's husband Robert Creamer's shady political activism. "Schakowsky almost certainly participated in those activities, and at a minimum, she must have known about them. And she could have stopped them. This is a sickening and terrifying abuse of power," Lasonde told reporters. Lasonde said Creamer's activities included hiring mentally ill and homeless people to provoke...

    A Wisconsin woman is giving a whole new meaning to “political smear campaign.” Christina Ferguson, 32, a Hillary Clinton supporter, was arrested Monday night and charged with disorderly conduct after allegedly smearing peanut butter on approximately 30 vehicles parked outside what she thought was a Donald Trump rally. After bursting in – a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif” in hand – Ferguson began yelling that she hated Donald Trump. When she was booted from the building, the passionate partisan proceeded to spread peanut butter on vehicles in the parking lot. But those cars had nothing to do with...

    Police in Fredericksburg, Virginia, are searching for the person responsible for setting fire to a pro-Donald Trump display that sat just a few feet from a row of townhouses. Police said an officer patrolling the Riverside Manor neighborhood noticed the display on fire about 2 a.m. Monday, a local ABC News affiliate reported. The fire reportedly destroyed a large Donald Trump sign, a Rep. Rob Wittman sign, an American flag and a bale of hay that the flags were attached to. The owners of the display were grateful the officer saw the fire when he did. “If it wasn’t for...
  • The Case of Kevin KC Massey - I Challenging the Interpretation vs. the Wording of a Statute

    Canada Free Press ^ | 10/18/2016 | Gary Hunt
    This last Section only sets the penalties. On April 29, 2015, Massey filed his “First Supplement to Motion to Dismiss Indictment”. The culmination of research into the wording of 18 US Code § 922(g)(1) led him to conclude that the wording of the statute complies, at least to some degree, with the authority granted to the government by the Constitution. That authority has to do with the “Commerce Clause”, providing powers with regard to “interstate and foreign commerce”. Since then, Massey has referred to this as the “Has/Had” argument. Though much simplified on the “First Supplement to Motion…” we can...

    WHEATON - While evangelist Billy Graham's son Franklin Graham stands solidly behind the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, students at the elder Graham's alma mater Wheaton College are evidently not in agreement. "Donald Trump is the 'Anti-Chrit'", a misspelled chalking said on the steps of the evangelical school's Billy Graham Center. Although Graham has declared his continuing support for Trump despite videos revealing and rumors suggesting immoral behavior which Graham preaches against, he wrote on his Facebook page this week that he's not condoning Trump's behavior: Continue reading "In front of Billy Graham Center in Wheaton, "Donald Trump is Antichrit""...

The vandals were right on busy Normandale Boulevard when they torched the big Donald Trump sign on Lorri Kreuscher’s lawn. "It was Saturday night, probably 9 p.m., and someone came to our door and said, ‘Do you know your sign is on fire?’” Kreuscher said. The Trump sign was decorated with women's bras and lit on fire. It happened only a few feet from where vandals hit 3 weeks earlier, using road salt to kill the grass and spell out her candidate’s...

    Along the cul-de-sac outside Guild House West on Monday afternoon, a Philadelphia Corporation for the Aging worker loaded meals onto a hand truck. She would soon wheel it inside a Fairmount Avenue apartment building that several hundred seniors call home. The sun was shining brightly, the birds were chirping happily and, before lunch was served, a handful of residents in the affordable rental-housing community chatted in a cafeteria that will double as a polling place in three weeks. There was talk of a resident who recently passed away (meaning there’s a vacancy), but there was zero chatter about a “Voter...

    A "wall" of taco trucks will be erected outside the Trump International Las Vegas hotel before the final presidential debate there on Wednesday night. The Culinary Union, an adversary of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, is going to “build” a wall of taco trucks at the hotel, according to BuzzFeed News. Trump’s hotel is located just a few miles from the site of the debate at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. “We’re reminding Mr. Trump that immigrant workers here and across the country will be watching the debate and voting in November,” Yvanna Cancela, political director for the union, said....

    Some Hamiltonians are watching the U.S. presidential election campaign with a sense of awe. Some are dismayed by its numerous controversies. Some are disgusted. But on the weekend, half a dozen with local Liberal ties got involved by driving to Pennsylvania to campaign for Hillary Clinton. Led by former Liberal candidate Anne Tennier, the group knocked on doors in Erie to encourage current and former Democrats to get out and vote. It was Liberals this time, Tennier said, but some active NDP members will join her in two weeks. "Today it just happened to be Liberals," Tennier said on the...

    A Donald Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ hat is once again stirring tempers at Calgary universities – this time leading to a physical altercation. According to a University of Calgary statement, a fight broke out between two males, one of who was confirmed to be a university student, around 6:30 p.m. on Friday. Andrew Brookman, a political science major, alleges that someone called him over, referencing the hat, and what looked to be a ‘fist bump’ quickly escalated. Minor injuries were sustained, and both individuals were treated at the scene. Neither was sent to hospital. Brookman said he had never...

In fact, Fattah said, he actually is "grateful" for the proposed policy. "A lot of Americans have the misconception that Donald Trump is racist toward Muslims," said Fattah, 39, who attended a rally on Independence Mall Sunday as part of a small group under the banner Muslims for Trump. "That's not what [the policy] is about whatsoever. It's about the extreme vetting of Muslims coming into this country, and I...

Shaffer and his friend, both construction workers in their 50s, support Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate. They believe the United States needs a strong military and that undocumented immigrants should be deported. "Why build a wall? Landmines will do the same!" Pennsylvania has backed the Democratic presidential candidate in every election since 1992. Even so, the state is "not reliably Democrat", says political analyst...

    Members of the group Mormons for Trump are concerned about a trend among LDS church faithful to support third-party candidates like Evan McMullin. They say the push to “vote your conscience” is unwittingly helping to put Democrat Hillary Clinton in the White House. McMullin has undoubtedly benefited from the recent controversies surrounding Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump. The 40 year old former CIA officer told KUER last week after the video of Trump speaking crudely about women surfaced, interest in his own presidential campaign intensified. “For all those people who wondered why we were so adamant that Donald Trump must...

    Drug users who want to avoid becoming another bloody casualty in Philippines leader Rodrigo Duterte's war on narcotics have been making coffins as part of one local rehabilitation programme. Addicts in the city of Olongapo, three hours to the north of the capital Manila, are taught to make coffins after they hand themselves over to authorities. In the Philippines, where more than 3,600 people have been killed since Dutere's election in June, the process is known as 'surrendering'. The macabre irony of the programme is not lost on those who enrol in it. "I knew that if I don't change,...

The cellphone and landline survey of likely voters in the state’s largest city found that Clinton, a Democrat, and Trump, a Republican, each were favored by 38 percent, and Libertarian Gary Johnson by 11 percent. Six percent wanted someone else and 7 percent were undecided or didn’t know. The Oct. 1-6 poll was sponsored by The Virginian-Pilot, WVEC-TV, and Christopher Newport University and was conducted before Friday’s revelation of Trump’s denigrating comments about women in a 2005 “Access Hollywood”...

"In fact, Donald Trump’s slogan is strangely related to the ideas and words of the Ku Klux Klan." "Donald Trump wants to make America great again by going back to the way it was before.

    My Daughter and Son in law, and two grandchildren were going to the Grapefest in Grapevine, Texas, between Dallas and Fort Worth. They graciously invited me to tag along.  Sunday afternoon, 19 September, 2016, was the time that fit with schedules and the kids naps.  The temperature was 97 in Dallas, and I could feel the humidity. I missed my Sun Helmet.  I am heat acclimated, but the kids were not.  We had to walk a couple of blocks to the festival, and the family stopped in some shade to consider options. I notice some sign-age that looked as...

    A couple of good old boys in Maryland decided they would let some of the Black Lives Matters protesters in Hagerstown, Maryland know what they think of their protests. So, one followed the other's truck, which was a diesel truck and they proceeded to spew black exhaust smoke across the entire group of protesters. Check out the video below, which was originally uploaded by Aaron Gettel and then reposted by a protest supporter, Lawrence Marley Hester. Fast forward to the 1:20 mark.

    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...

    Those who watched this debate and paid attention saw the major reason this election belongs to Trump and this debate belongs to Trump He is REAL. He speaks from the heart, he speaks from experience, and he speaks with conviction. 1. Trump On Business: Trump won that hands down. Clinton was clearly rattled. 2. Trump on Security: Trump devastating blow about Clinton's cheating Bernie Sanders. She knew it struck to the heart of her democrat voters. 3. Trump on International Affairs: Trump Blew Her Out of the Water. Don't listen to the pundits. Trump's point that any 'friend' should pay...
