    “Five-term incumbent Mayor Chris Louras of Rutland, Vermont was defeated this Town Meeting Day. He lost to Alderman Dave Allaire by a margin of 52 percent to 34 percent. Allaire swept all four wards,” WCAX reported Tuesday night. “Louras had beaten Allaire in two previous mayoral elections,” Seven Days Vermont reported. It was not even close on Tuesday, as Louras (pictured) was crushed in a humiliating defeat that was as much a rejection of his personal character as it was of his pro-refugee policies. Louras made headlines last year when it was reported that, beginning in 2015, he secretively attempted...

    The mayor of New York City just may be the second most powerful elected position in U.S. politics, only behind the presidency. Located inside City Hall in the heart of Manhattan's bustling and brightly lit Broadway, the Big Apple's mayoral office is arguably the most influential in the world. And it looks like Hillary Clinton has her eyes all over it. The former Democratic candidate who won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election but lost in a shocking electoral upset to President Donald Trump has reportedly been flirting with the idea of a run for New York City...

    ALMOST 50,000 people have signed a petition to remove Sadiq Khan as London mayor over his controversial Brexit stance. They are angry at the Labour politician for wanting London to have a bespoke Brexit deal after Article 50 is triggered. Mr Khan has urged the Government to give the capital "a voice at the table" during upcoming negotiations with Brussels. And he wants to introduce special work visa for migrants coming to work in London. More than 47,000 have signed Matthew Lee's petition on Change.org calling for the Mayor to be removed. He claims Mr Khan's comments are encouraging the...

Mayor John Cranley announced, alongside Muslim, Jewish and Christian religious leaders, that his city would “stand in solidarity with the immigrant community,” and declare itself a sanctuary city, despite the threat of losing federal funding under President Donald Trump’s administration. “This city stands with immigrants,” Cranley said during the live press conference. “This city stands with Muslims. This city stands with Syrian refugees yearning to break free.” “This city opposes executive orders to halt refugee resettlement and...

    Mayor Andy Ginther countered President Donald Trump's executive order with one of his own. The mayor said Columbus will be a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees and city resources won't be used to enforce immigration laws. The executive order comes just days after Trump banned immigrants from seven majority-Muslim nations. That ban led to large protests over the weekend at John Glenn International Airport. About 50 protesters demonstrated outside City Hall Monday evening calling on Columbus to designate itself a "sanctuary city". Ginther's executive order stops short of that but the protesters said they supported the steps he took.

    Fearing a loss of millions of dollars for defying immigration authorities, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Thursday ordered county jails to comply with federal immigration detention requests — effectively gutting the county’s position as a “sanctuary” for immigrants in the country illegally. Gimenez cited an executive order signed Wednesday by President Donald Trump that threatened to cut federal grants for any counties or cities that don’t cooperate fully with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Since 2013, Miami-Dade has refused to indefinitely detain inmates who are in the country illegally and wanted by ICE — not based on principle, but because the...

Those who, like Emanuel, enable lawless so-called sanctuary cities deserve to be behind bars. Radical left-wingers don't believe America should have borders at all.

Victory in Rome would be a huge breakthrough for anti-establishment 5SM, which was founded in 2009 by comedian Beppe Grillo and has grown to be Italy's second largest party.

Talbot’s strong words for Stanford students have struck a chord up north in San Francisco, and his speech is rapidly going viral.

    Besieged by federal and state investigators, Mayor Bill de Blasio turned Nixonian Thursday and declared five of his closest outside confidants exempt from public disclosure laws when they advise him on running the city. His administration extended the stunning “agents of the city” privilege to BerlinRosen co-founder Jonathan Rosen; Hilltop Public Solutions partners Nicholas Baldick and Bill Hyers; and AKPD partner John Del Cecato. All four worked on de Blasio’s political campaigns. Also included was Patrick Gaspard, US ambassador to South Africa and a former political operative at SEIU Local 1199.

    Labour Party candidate Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, has been elected mayor of London, and the international Left is thrilled. “Son of a Pakistani bus driver, champion of workers’ rights and human rights, and now Mayor of London. Congrats, @SadiqKhan. –H,” tweeted Hillary Clinton. Likewise happy are Islamic supremacists worldwide: members of the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), the party of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the majority party in the nation’s National Assembly, held up a sign emblazoned: “Heartiest Congratulation [sic] to Sadiq Khan 1st Muslim Mayor of London who defeated millionaire Jew Zec [sic] Goldsmith.” Those two messages...

    LONDON — Labour candidate Sadiq Khan has been elected Mayor of London, beating his Conservative opponent Zac Goldsmith. Khan, 45, replaces flamboyant Conservative Boris Johnson after a race characterised by allegations of extremism and racism.

His allegations were echoed by prime minister David Cameron in the parliament, during Wednesdays' question time. The son of a bus driver from Pakistan, Khan is a former human rights lawyer who branded himself "the British Muslim who takes the fight...

    Late at night this month, the pastor’s phone beeped with a text message from an anguished parishioner. Andre Taylor, the church member’s great-nephew, had been shot and killed. “Dre had just turned 16,” the message on the Rev. Ira Acree’s phone read. “I think that it’s time to call for action and solicit help, have the National Guard to take over and patrol the Chicago streets.” Four days earlier, another text had appeared. A different parishioner’s granddaughter, Daysha Wright, a 21-year-old nursing student, had been shot to death in a car, leaving a 2-year-old son. At his desk at Greater...

    LONDON — The mayor of London has a simple message for President Obama over Britain’s upcoming referendum on membership in the European Union: Butt out. In a strikingly combative article published Monday, the flamboyant mayor, Boris Johnson, accused the United States of “exorbitant hypocrisy” in urging the United Kingdom to vote to stay in the bloc, given that the former defends its own sovereignty with “hysterical vigilance.” Johnson's strident criticism in the Telegraph newspaper comes amid reports that Obama will visit the United Kingdom next month and will urge Britons to vote to remain in the 28-nation E.U. The London...
