That list is just a tiny sampling of voter fraud, and it keeps growing. In May, the Heritage Foundation highlighted several recent cases.

We said "Enough" after Sandy Hook. We thought the moment for action had come. Yet nothing happened. We are saying "Enough" after Charleston. But this time, we don't even expect anything to happen. What's needed is a long-term national effort to change popular attitudes toward handgun ownership.

    As a public service, we try to track the progress, or lack thereof, of the latest top-down education reform concocted by elites and insidersCommon Core. We are aided immeasurably by the Heartland Institute which publishes updates on Common Cores setbacks and advances in School Reform News. In the May issue, we learn that: The governor of Mississippi vetoed a commission on Common Core; Ohio may soon give certain school districts the option of creating their own exams; and Montana parents went to court to repeal Common Core. Meanwhile, parents fighting Common Core still face uphill struggles in...

    Just in time for Mothers Day, pregnancy help organizations nationwide are receiving encouragement from an unusual source. Pro-choice group, Glitter Bombs For Choice (GBFC) has taken credit for at least six so-called glitter bombs in California, eight more in Ohio, with one report of a mailing to a pregnancy center in West Virginia, according to Heartbeat International, in the past week. These glitter bombs are typically hand-written cards with a small, sealed packet of glitter inside. When the card is opened, the glitter packet ruptures, sending pieces flying everywhere. The mission of these special deliveries, according to GBFCs website, is...

    The Union Carbide Hunting and Fishing Lodge campground on Blue Creek is facing extinction soon, after decades of being a choice, close-by, back-to-nature getaway location for generations of Union Carbide employees, their families and friends. Those who still maintain campsites on the Elk River-area property have been given notice to vacate the premises no later than mid-August. Jack Lesher of Clendenin is the treasurer for the Carbide Recreation Club, which has maintained the campground for approximately 25 years. He recounted the history of the facility and the recent notification of its impending closure. Back when Union Carbide ran a chemical...

    Twenty-seven senators want President Obama to block federal agencies and contractors from asking job applicants about prior criminal convictions. The senators, including 26 Democrats and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), want Obama to take executive action to "ban the box," referring to a question on job applications that asks if an applicant has any convictions. "We ask you to require federal contractors and agencies to refrain from asking job applicants about prior convictions until later in the hiring process," they said in a letter to Obama on Monday. "This policy would eliminate unnecessary barriers to employment for all job...

    Authorities in Florida say a ruse to get a man's fingerprints led to his arrest as a convicted killer who escaped an Ohio prison farm and disappeared for most of six decades. Brevard County deputies say investigators with the U.S. Marshals Service in Ohio sought help to check out the man while chasing leads about Frank Freshwaters, an Akron man who escaped in 1959. Major Tod Goodyear says they created a ruse to get the man to sign papers, then matched the fingerprints to those from the decades-old arrest. Goodyear says they watched the man for a week, then confronted...

    Sunday, we found out that U.S. Senator Joe Manchin removed himself from the running for Governor of West Virginia, but during the same announcement, he endorsed Hillary Clinton as his favorite presidential candidate. When Senator Manchin endorsed Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign on Sunday, he described Clinton as warm, compassionate, engaging, and tough. In 2008, Manchin waited until the Democratic candidate was already decided before endorsing Barack Obama.

    The first major step in what will likely be a long, drawn-out legal process will begin today, April 16. Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will hear oral arguments from 16 states and a handful of energy companies. The two consolidated cases led by the state of West Virginia and the Ohio-based Murray Energy Corporation seek to prevent EPA from finalizing the already proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP). The two lawsuits contend that EPA cannot legally regulate greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants under Section 111 of the Clean Air Act since ...
