    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan's capital city on Wednesday rescinded its decision to deem itself a "sanctuary city" protecting immigrants, bowing to concerns from the business community that the ambiguous, contentious term may draw unwanted attention to Lansing.The City Council voted 5-2 to reverse course after last week's 6-0 vote to call itself a sanctuary. The term "sanctuary city" has no legal definition and varies in application, but it generally refers to jurisdictions that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials. Under Lansing city policy, police don't ask for people's immigration status, except as required by U.S. or Michigan law...
  • While You Weren’t Looking, the Democrat–Media Election-Hacking Narrative Just Collapsed

    That supposed FBI investigation of collusion with the Russians? Never mind . . . They’re in retreat now. You may have missed it amid President Trump’s startling Saturday tweet storm, the recriminations over president-on-candidate spying, and the Jeff Sessions recusal — a whirlwind weekend. But while you weren’t looking, an elaborate narrative died. For months, the media-Democrat complex has peddled a storyline that the Putin regime in Russia hacked the U.S. presidential election. There is, of course, no evidence that the election was hacked in the sense that the actual voting process was compromised.

    After two Project Veritas videos shined a light on their nefarious activities, the activist coalition DisruptJ20 has "dramatically scaled back" their plans to sabotage the inauguration of Donald Trump, according to reports. Legba Carrefour, the self-described "glam anarchist" who was caught on tape plotting bridge and train blockades, came up with a convenient cover story for the media. “The amount of chaos is being intentionally overstated” by his group, he said.

    Many thousands of women are expected to converge on the nation’s capital for the Women’s March on Washington the day after Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. Jennifer Willis no longer plans to be one of them. Ms. Willis, a 50-year-old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white. The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also...

    A&E has pulled the plug on its upcoming docuseries centered on the KKK. The network announced their plans to scrap the project, which was intended to serve as a close look at anti-hate extractors focused on helping people leave the Ku Klux Klan, in a statement released Saturday. "Our goal with this series has always been to expose and combat racism and hatred in all its forms," the network said in a statement. "However, A&E learned last night from the third-party producers who made the documentary that cash payments — which we currently understand to be nominal — were made...
  • Krauthammer’s Take: Trump Opposing U.N. Israel Resolution ‘Extremely Effective and Extremely Daring’

    The U.N. was expected to vote today on a resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building, and reports indicate that Obama was ready to allow the resolution to pass until Egypt put off the vote. President-elect Donald Trump put pressure on Egypt not to go forward with the resolution, and it seems to have had an effect. Charles Krauthammer said that the resolution could have done serious damage to Israel, making Trump’s involvement daring and effective: More than a slap on the wrist, I think it would have done permanent damage to Israel, which is why even Obama himself...

    Two men who drove a truck through Wellesley College waving a Trump flag while yelling "Make America Great Again," and were accused of shouting racial slurs will not face disciplinary charges, their lawyers said. Parker Rand-Ricciardi and Edward Tomasso, students at nearby Babson College, faced accusations of harassment and disorderly conduct before the college’s honor board on Friday. On Monday, however, the school officially ruled that the students did nothing wrong and that the racism charges were unfounded.

    Andrea Bocelli has backed out of performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration after he received backlash from his fans. Despite the rumors that no celebrities wanted to perform at his inauguration, the president-elect reportedly personally approached the blind Italian singer, who originally accepted. Now, according to Page Six, he has changed his mind. “Bocelli said there was no way he’d take the gig,” a source told Page Six. “He was ‘getting too much heat’ and he said no.” Another source told Page Six that it was Trump’s idea for Bocelli to back out. “Trump suggested to Bocelli he not participate because...

    President-elect Donald Trump’s businesses provide an unprecedented opportunity for conflicts of interest and even corruption. And he just canceled the news conference where he was supposed to tell Americans how he’d deal with them. On November 30, Trump said that he’d announce his plans for the Trump Organization, his sprawling business empire, on December 15, promising he would be “leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Now that press conference has been canceled, according to Bloomberg Politics’ Kevin Cirilli, Caleb Melby, and Ben Brody.

    A Villanova University student has asked police to drop their investigation into an incident in which she alleged she was attacked by white male President-Elect Donald Trump supporters. An African-American female student at the university alleged in a hate crime-related story that after Trump’s victory against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a group of white men knocked her to the ground as they yelled “Trump,” Philly.com reported. Last month, the student asked the local police department to shut down the investigation into the incident, yet police did not reveal the reason for her request. Villanova University campus police say the student...

  • Source: The Rolling Stones Were Invited to Play the Inauguration In September — By the Democrats

    Last week, a source to Digital Music News leaked that the Rolling Stones had been invited to play the Presidential Inauguration. Now, it appears that the invitation came months ago, and it didn’t come from the Trump Administration. We’re now getting a better idea on just how cocky the Democratic Party was heading into Election Day. According to a connected source disclosing details with Digital Music News over the weekend, it now appears that the Rolling Stones were invited to play the Inauguration back in September. But the invitation looks like it came from the Democratic Party, Clinton campaign, or...

    President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama cancelled a photo op with President-Elect Donald Trump and future First Lady Melania Trump at the White House on Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Obamas became strong campaigners for Hillary Clinton during the presidential race and held rallies for her around the country. In 2008, after President Obama won his first election to the presidency, President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush welcomed the Obamas to the White House in what has become a tradition, and took a picture of the two couples.

    Hillary Clinton's campaign has called off its planned election night firework display, it emerged Monday, the day before America goes to the polls. Staffers were going to put on a two-minute show over the Hudson River after the results come in on Tuesday, but the proposal has been canned, TMZ reported on Monday. The campaign called the Coast Guard last week to tell them the event was off, three days after the New York Post reported it was planning the bash - although the cancellation was secret until Monday.

    One of America’s top defense attorneys was deemed too controversial to host an event for President Obama, according to newly surfaced emails, mainly because of one particular client – a jet-setting billionaire accused of trafficking underage girls, who also happens to be close friends with Bill Clinton. Famed attorney Roy Black, 71, represented Jeffrey Epstein, 63, a Palm Beach finance mogul accused of trafficking for himself and his powerful friends nearly three-dozen underage girls for sex. Black, and his co-counsel Alan Dershowitz, secured a remarkable deal in 2008 in which Epstein pleaded guilty to one count related to prostitution with...
