    mergency room physician John Forsyth sent a text to his fiancée in the early morning hours of May 21. He’d just finished his overnight shift at the hospital, he told her, and would see her in a little bit. Then he abruptly stopped responding to messages, said his brother, Richard Forsyth. And that’s the last time his loved ones heard from him. Surveillance footage from that day showed the doctor walking toward his RV outside the hospital in Cassville, Missouri, his brother said. Investigators told the family they found his Infiniti sedan unlocked at a nearby park. Inside the car...

    Ron DeSantis is determined to recruit Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders as his running mate before making a formal announcement on his 2024 presidential bid, sources close to his campaign told exclusively. Insiders claim that DeSantis has set his sights on the former Trump press secretary to be his VP pick after she won the race to become the state's first female governor in November, succeeding Gov. Asa Hutchinson who served in the role since 2015. "He really only has one strong choice: Sarah," the source told exclusively. "He is desperate to lock up his running mate before...

    Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R-AR) said Monday on FNC’s “Your World” that former President Donald Trump will use special counsel John Durham’s probe to “undermine all of law enforcement.” Anchor Neil Cavuto said, “This comes at a time when the former president himself was hoping that the Durham report would turn the world upside down so to speak. As damning as it is, outside of a low-level ranking FBI agent cited for lying, that’s it. That is the whole kit and caboodle right there.” He added, “The problem is what we’ll see is that Donald Trump will...

    n his rousing keynote address at The Heritage Foundation’s 50th anniversary gala last month, then-Fox News host Tucker Carlson offered an unexpected piece of advice: “Don’t throw away your hard-copy books.” Unlike digitized books, films, and albums that can be canceled, rewritten, or vanished altogether, physical copies are “the enduring repository that cannot be disappeared.” With their resurrection of poetry recitation requirements, educators in Georgia and Arkansas are protecting that repository in more ways than one, steeping students in a reality they can affirm, trust, and love. Both states’ departments of education recently proposed revised K-12 English language arts standards...

    Hunter Biden’s lawyers on Friday made a final effort to avoid an in-person hearing for his contempt case, a motion that has now been denied by an Arkansas judge. Attorneys representing the son of President Joe Biden urged Batesville Judge Holly Meyer to soften her previous decision ordering their client’s appearance. But instead of allowing for Biden’s remote participation, Meyer ordered him to “physically appear” for all of his court dates from this point forward — beginning with a hearing on Monday.

    LITTLE ROCK (LifeSiteNews) — Arkansas Republican Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed a bill Tuesday that prohibits people at public or charter schools from using bathrooms or locker rooms that do not coincide with their biological sex. According to provisions of the bill, people at K-12 public and charter schools must use multi-person bathrooms and locker rooms in accord with their biological sex. The bill also requires that schools provide “reasonable accommodation” for anyone “unable or unwilling” to use a multi-person bathroom or changing area, such as offering single person bathrooms or changing areas. Opponents of the bill claim, however, that...

    The continued — an increasingly curious — absence of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) from her duties in the upper chamber of Congress is becoming a growing thorn in the sides of the Democrats. Feinstein is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her prolonged recovery from shingles has ground to a halt the Democrats’ ability to further pollute the judicial system with activist judges who have been nominated by Joe Biden’s puppeteers. Over the weekend, Matt wrote a VIP column about Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) asserting that the Republicans on the committee not let Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer...

The drag queens blocked the views of some families and children and distracted others from the book reading and remarks from the stage, said Brave Books. The publisher shared photos taken by staff on the scene. Los Angeles-based Cameron, an outspoken Christian who has been traveling across the country to public...

Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., joined forces with 18 GOP governors to reject President Joe Biden's environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) "agenda," claiming the push is a "direct threat" to the economic freedom of American retirees. Governors in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming formed the alliance Thursday in what they described as an effort to ensure American retirement funds are not used for "woke" investments.

    The US Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to revive a newspaper's challenge on free speech grounds to an Arkansas law requiring state government contractors to pledge not to boycott Israel, a policy the publication's lawyers called a threat to a constitutionally protected form of collective protest. The justices turned away an appeal by the Arkansas Times, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, of a lower court's ruling dismissing its lawsuit that claimed that the measure punishes participation in political boycotts based on the viewpoint expressed in violation of the US Constitution's First Amendment guarantee of free speech. The Arkansas...

    The grisly scene where a top Bill Clinton adviser was found hanged from a tree with a gunshot wound to his chest has finally been revealed nine months after he took his life. But the sheriff's report into Mark Middleton's death raises more questions than answers as it shows his death was ruled a suicide – but the weapon that killed him was nowhere to be found. Middleton, 59, was found dead last May at the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas, an hour west of Little Rock.

Able-bodied people without dependents must work 20 hours a week or be in job training to qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Of those, seven states allow work waivers in certain areas of the state. These seven are Colorado, Kentucky, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, and South Dakota. Eighteen states and territories have kept the work waiver across the entire state. They...
