The Republican nominee has insisted, without evidence, that dead people and undocumented immigrants are voting in the United States. Trump has long claimed that the 2016 election is rigged but has amplified his claims...

Bryant, who does alterations from a storefront along King, can recite a long list of flourishing businesses that used to line the street. They all left.

She and her husband even moved in above her shop to ward off thieves who have stolen her air conditioning unit and removed copper pipes from her store, which is...

    When the nuns first hit the road in 2012, their mission was to collect stories of economic oppression in protest of the Paul Ryan budget ó in defiant response to Pope Benedict XVI's startling decision to launch an investigation into the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, an umbrella group that represents more than 80 percent of religious sisters in the United States. The investigation was an outright attack on women's role in the Church and was referred to as "a crackdown on American nuns." Their alleged transgression was spending too much time on social justice issues, and promoting "certain radical...

    Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry suddenly announced he was suspending his presidential campaign Friday. As he did so, he made it abundantly clear that he's still not a fan of real-estate mogul Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner in the race with whom he has often feuded. Speaking at an event in St. Louis, Missouri, Perry repeatedly jabbed at Trump's campaign-trail controversies without using his name. "Demeaning people of Hispanic heritage is not just ignorant, it betrays the example of Christ," Perry said, according to his prepared remarks. "We can enforce our laws and our borders, and we can love all...

    My buddy John alerted me to Rick Perryís exit from the race today. He speculated that now Kasichís numbers might ďtake off a little, if not big.Ē In his text was a quip about the remaining candidates: ďgood-bye before hello.Ē For me, I never got a chance to say hello to Perry. Donald Trump was immediately more interesting than all of the other candidates put together. He didnít have to use self-justifying rhetoric to establish his conservative bona fides. He just said amazing true things, bluntly and spontaneously, that we have long wished all rightwing politicians would say. Trumpís remarks...
