    While Sen. Orrin Hatch expressed his ‘shock’ Monday that most of his Democratic colleagues could vote against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, it wasn’t just Democrats who opposed the measure. Two Republican senators joined Democrats in voting against the 20-week abortion ban: Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine. Meanwhile, Sens. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania—all Democrats—voted in favor of the ban on abortions at the point which unborn babies can feel pain, with certain exceptions such as rape, incest and to save the mother’s life.

  • Petition for NFL (No Flyover Laurels)

    As a taxpayer subsidized organization, the National Football League (NFL) and its members should not be permitted to publicly insult veterans, first responders, families of those who have sacrificed their lives for this country, and any patriotic American with its public displays of sitting, kneeling, exercising or other disrespectful behavior during the performance of our national anthem or flag ceremonies. We the people petition the Federal Government and the United States Air Force to abstain from providing the traditional "flyover" aerobatic display performed during the opening ceremonies of the NFL Superbowl, beginning immediately, until representatives of the NFL publicly apologize...

    Do you think it would be a good idea to move forward with my petition to remove the Flyover at the NFL Superbowl? With the current behavior and attitude from this organization, I think it is an insult to have our Air Force honor the NFL. Your feedback is appreciated.

  • White House petition giving Trump a patriotic alternative to amnesty

    Trump clearly favors legalizing DACA recipients and perhaps all DREAMers. He clearly isn't going to do mass deportations of DREAMers. If you oppose amnesty, then you have to give him an alternative plan. This petition does exactly that, proposing that Trump helps repatriate DREAMers via a voluntary program that would help them reestablish themselves in their home countries. It has the following advantages: * It's a workable plan. * It wouldn't get tied up in the courts. * It would help the USA and Mexico. * It won't incentivize future illegal immigration. * Trump can promote and defend it. *...

    A White House petition requesting that President Trump’s administration label Antifa as a terrorist organization reached more than 180,000 signatures, surpassing the 100,000 needed for a response from the White House. The petition created on August 17 calls for President Trump to formally designate the radical, left-wing movement as a terrorist organization following the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier in August. “Antifa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States,” the petition reads.

    A new White House petition this week is calling on the Trump administration to formally recognize the Antifa movement as a terrorist organization. "AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States," the petition, started Thursday, states. Antifa is short for anti-fascists, and the people involved are generally extreme leftists known for their face-offs with right-wing activists, including recently in Berkeley, Calif. Antifa counter-protesters made an appearance in Charlottesville, Va. this past weekend and clashed with white supremacy and neo-Nazi groups protesting...

    **SNIP** However, the group and other supporters of Calexit believe such financial risk would be worth it, particularly given that California’s political leanings are so at odds with the current administration and that California sends more tax dollars to the federal government than any other state. “We feel that California has been neglected and left out of the political process for many, many decades,” Gonzales told the Bee. “With current politics the way they are, clearly there’s a recognition that many in the United States have disdain for Californians. They call us ‘out of control.’ So this is a time...

    Rep. Tom Garret (R-VA), along with a dozen Freedom Caucus members, announced his intent to file a discharge petition that would put a clean repeal of Obamacare before the House. The House Freedom Caucus repeatedly argued that the best path to repealing Obamacare revolves around a simple repeal of Obamacare and then replacing the Affordable Care Act with a free-market alternative. Congress passed a clean repeal bill of Obamacare in 2015 only to have it vetoed by President Obama. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a former chairman of the Freedom Caucus, reintroduced the same legislation in 2017. However, Congress has not...

    Michael Savage is one of the greatest American radio commentators, and he is one of the top people in the country who got Trump elected. And yet, Savage is also one of the few with the courage to criticize Trump when ( in Savage's eyes ) Trump is backing off of his promises or taking us down a questionable or wrong road. As you probably know, for 8 years Savage has been banned by the UK government from traveling to the UK. Savage is grouped with other people being banned such murderers, rapists, and Islamic terrorists -- and high insult...
