    A former Republican lawmaker and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations blasted President Donald Trump in an opinion piece published this week. Former Sen. John Danforth, R-Mo., wrote in The Washington Post that Trump is not a true Republican because of one main reason: he stands against having a unified nation.

  • Josh Hawley Running for Claire McCaskill's Missouri Senate Seat

    Weekly Standard ^ | 10/10/17 | Andrew Egger
    Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced Monday evening that he is running for Senate in 2018. The young Republican may prove the most formidable challenger yet to Claire McCaskill, who is widely seen as one of the Senate’s most vulnerable Democrats. Hawley, who is popular and well-connected in Missouri, enters the race an instant frontrunner in the Republican primary. In his announcement video, Hawley skips straight to his general election pitch: that McCaskill, a two-term incumbent, is out of step with his state’s values. “Senator McCaskill, she’s been in D.C. forever,” Hawley says in the video. “She’s turned her back...
  • Satanist wins transfer of her abortion rights case to the Missouri Supreme Court

    10/09/2017 12:18:17 AM PDT · by Morgana · 13 replies ^ | October 8, 2017 | Max Londberg
    A Missouri woman who is an adherent of the Satanic Temple won a victory in court last week in her quest to show that state abortion law violates her religious beliefs. The Western District Court of Appeals ruled in her favor Tuesday, writing that her constitutional challenge — rare for its basis in religion — presented “a contested matter of right that involves fair doubt and reasonable room for disagreement.” The woman, identified as Mary Doe in court documents, argued that her religion does not adhere to the idea that life begins at conception, and, because of that, the prerequisites...
  • Next-generation battery developer's new Joplin facility will create 100 jobs (Missouri)

    ZAF Energy Systems Inc. opened a new production facility in Joplin Thursday, which is expected to create more than 100 jobs. The Montana-based company, which develops next-generation battery technology, is expanding its production capacity to meet customer demand and drive more interest in its rechargeable nickel zinc battery (NiZn) as a replacement for lead-acid batteries. The additional capacity also will help it expedite licensing and joint venture negotiations, as well as commercializing its products on a global scale. “We just weren’t able to keep up with the demand with the capacity we had in Montana,” said ZAF CEO Randy Moore...
  • White Nationalism Is as Much of a Threat to U.S. as ISIS, FBI's Open Investigations Show

    The number of attacks carried out by white supremacists were “almost triple” those of those carried out by people who identified with groups such as ISIS, said Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri. And government data obtained by The Hill suggests the number of white supremacist attacks compared to those from radical Islamist groups was as many as two to one. “We have had zero hearings on the threat of domestic terrorists and the threat they pose and our response to it,” McCaskill said, explaining there had been a number of hearings about ISIS, but none about white supremacists. But...

    LAKE OZARK, MO (KOMU/CNN) - A bar is getting criticism for a doormat that's being called racist. The makeshift mat of NFL jerseys started as a stance against anthem protests. Jason Burle has been running a Lake of the Ozarks bar for almost two years, a project that gives a nod to his military roots. His father served in the Navy from 1969 to 1973 during Vietnam. He, too, served in the military, and now his son. In the “hallway of heroes” around the corner from the bar, there is a reminder of what the Snafu Bar is really about....

    Salt Lake Tribune ^ | Sept 21, 2017 | Tiffany Frandsen
    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints now owns the printer’s manuscript of the Book of Mormon — for $35 million, the sellers say. The Community of Christ, formerly known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, announced the sale, and the price tag, on Wednesday. The Independence, Missouri-based church has owned the manuscript since 1903. Steven E. Snow, LDS Church historian and recorder, confirmed the acquisition, calling the document both a spiritual and historic treasure. Church officials did not immediately confirm, but also did not challenge, the stated sales price when contacted Thursday.
  • Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man?

    Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man? Bob Adelmann The decision on Friday to acquit a white St. Louis police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man back in December 2011 predictably set off rioting in the city. It didn’t occur to the rioters that, according to the evidence in the case, Officer Jason Stockley’s use of force was reasonable, to defend his own life against a potentially lethal threat exhibited by Anthony Lamar Smith. It didn’t matter that the judge found that the state failed to prove its allegation...

    FULL TITLE: Kansas suspends abortion doctor for failing to take a sample of a 13-year-old's fetus after she 'had sex with her 19-year-old boyfriend' Kansas suspended a former Planned Parenthood doctor's state medical license for failing to preserve a fetal tissue sample from a 13-year-old girl's abortion so that it could be sent to authorities after she allegedly had sex with a 19-year-old. The State Board of Healing Arts concluded that Dr Allen S. Palmer violated Kansas law during the December 2014 abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park. Kansas requires fetal tissue...

    A St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter is among the 80 people arrested by St. Louis police late Sunday after protests in the city turned combative. The newspaper reports on its website that Mike Faulk was covering the protest and its aftermath when he was taken into custody as police cleared a street early Monday. The report doesn’t say if Faulk has been charged or released. City police say they will release a statement later.

    Once again, big city Democrat politicians have failed us. A deep societal wound was opened this past weekend in the Show Me State, with Ferguson, the false clarion call of “Hands Up Don't Shoot,” and the Black Lives Matter marches all still fresh in our memories, another. The acquittal on Friday of a white cop on trial for murder for fatally shooting a black man in 2011 after a high-speed chase was immediately met with demonstrations and violence including attacks on police, property, and the media. That was predictable, but what was equally and sadly on display were incendiary comments...

    Destroying libraries? Sure. This is what the left supports. While the media keeps lying that the St. Louis race riots are "peaceful protests" (as it has been doing in response to every black nationalist race riot since Ferguson), here's what the left's racist black nationalist thugs are actuallu up to. Trashing libraries. The Schlafly branch in St. Louis suffered broken windows at the hands of the racist thugs. The library reopened at midday after the staff went "literally... book by book" to check for glass fragments, said library director Waller McGuire. He arrived at the library at 2 a.m. Saturday....

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen a single article on Free Republic, or on any place I frequent, talking about the three nights (so far) of rioting in St. Louis after that verdict. St. Louis police is reporting on their twitter that just tonight, there has been significant damage done to businesses in the downtown area, chemicals thrown at police, arrests, injuries received by cops, and weapons and ANTIFA/BLM flags confiscated from violent criminals. See the link above for more information, as I don't know how to post pictures from twitter onto free republic, unfortunately.

    Jason Stockley, the former police officer whose acquittal sparked three days of riots and protests in St. Louis, says he did not murder Anthony Lamar Smith. “I did nothing wrong,” Stockley told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “If you’re telling the truth and you’ve been wrongly accused, you should shout it from a mountaintop.” Stockley, 36, was acquitted by Judge Timothy Wilson of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith, a 24-year-old black man with a lengthy police record. During his 28 years on the bench, Judge Wilson has ruled both for and against police. Before the shooting,...

    St. Louis police say there were 33 arrests, 11 injured officers and property damage to Mayor Lyda Krewson's house during Friday protests. They also say there was damage to two police vehicles, the St. Louis Public Library and 10 businesses as protesters marched downtown and in the Central West End. St. Louis interim police Chief Lawrence O'Toole says Saturday evening that five officers were taken to hospitals after being hit with bottles or bricks. The arrests of protesters included many for failure to disperse, resisting and interfering....
