    This year’s high-stakes midterm elections are fast approaching, and much ink has been spilled about a surge in women candidates running for office. Unfortunately, most of the hype has focused on only one type of woman: anti-Trump, pro-abortion, and angry about it. What about the millions of women and men who are eager to see more protections for unborn children and their mothers – who revere the Constitution and want more fair, impartial judges like Justice Kavanaugh appointed? Who is running to represent folks who not only decline the pink hats and handmaid outfits, but are happy about the direction...

    Two days after her parents' mysterious death, Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs remained "endangered" -- but her whereabouts continued to prove elusive for the investigators combing the country for the 13-year-old. Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said in a Tuesday news conference that Jayme is believed to be in danger and emphasized she is not a suspect in the death of her parents, James and Denise Closs. He also dismissed the idea Jayme had run away from her home in Barron, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

    A top Republican senator is demanding documents regarding the FBI’s 2016 interactions with a lawyer working for the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign who provided information on Russian meddling. Fox News reported last week that Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann gave documents pertaining to the Russia probe to then-FBI general counsel James Baker, according to Baker’s own testimony. Perkins Coie is the same firm that, while working for the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig into then-candidate Donald Trump’s background – resulting in the controversial anti-Trump ‘dossier.’ In a letter being sent...

    The Hill ^ | 10/08/18 | PETER SULLIVAN
    Democrats are planning to force a vote in the Senate this week on overturning a Trump administration rule expanding non-ObamaCare insurance plans. The Democratic resolution, which will likely get a vote on Wednesday, would overturn a rule finalized in August that expanded the availability of short-term health insurance plans. Democrats decry the plans as “junk” insurance because they does not need to cover pre-existing conditions or follow other ObamaCare rules. Republicans argue the plans provide a cheaper option alongside ObamaCare plans. The resolution, which is supported by all 49 Senate Democrats, is unlikely to pass given that it would need...

In Madison, Wisconsin, the city council has voted overwhelmingly to remove a cemetery marker noting the names of about 140 Confederates, most of whom died in a prisoner of war camp in the town. More: “You don’t have discussion in a cemetery.

These are Americans who died as prisoners of war. “They die off like rotten sheep,” said a Union soldier who worked at the camp, where conditions were bad. The “monument”...
