    Richard Barnett, 60, of Gravette, Arkansas, appeared in a photo taken last Wednesday inside the U.S. Capitol after a violent, pro-Trump mob stormed the building and ransacked lawmakers’ offices. In the photo, Barnett could be seen inside House Speaker Nancy' Pelosi's private office, draping his leg across her desk. By Tuesday, Barnett had made a different sort of appearance — in federal court. Barnett appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Erin Wiedemann in Fayetteville on Tuesday to hear the charges against him. Among them is a charge that he unlawfully entered a restricted area with a lethal weapon — in this...

  • Cotton breaks with conservative colleagues who will oppose electoral vote count

    Cotton warned that if Congress threw out the electoral votes of states such as Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where President Trump has alleged without evidence widespread election fraud, it would “take away the power to choose the president from the people.” He said it would imperil the Electoral College and the voice it gives to smaller states like Arkansas and help Democrats “achieve their longstanding goal of eliminating the Electoral College.” He said Congress if overrides the Electoral College’s vote, it would “take another big step toward federalizing election law.” “Thus, I will not oppose the counting of...

    Little Rock, AR — An Arkansas abortionist, Tom Tvedten, 74, whose medical license was suspended on an emergency basis in August, will apparently be allowed to resume abortions – at least temporarily – but remains blocked from certifying medicinal marijuana cards. Tvedten’s license was suspended on August 13, 2020, after the Arkansas State Medical Board (ASMB) determined that his evaluation and certification of a minor girl for a medical marijuana card rose to the level of “gross negligence and ignorant malpractice” that posed a danger to the public. News outlets have reported that during a disciplinary hearing held on October...

Officer Travis Wallace, 41, was a five year veteran of the Helena-West Helena Police Department, Chief James Smith told WREG Friday. He leaves behind his mother, two children and several sisters and brothers. “When you go there and speak with his child and tell them that his father is not coming back home, that’s something hard for an adolescent to process,” Smith said.

    It’s not even Election Day, and as far as the Republican Party is concerned, one race is over. Republican David Tollett’s Democratic challenger Jimmie Lee Wilson has been disqualified to run, due to past convictions concerning federal farm loan use. This clears the path for Tollett to step into the District 12 seat in Phillips County. Democrats say they will seek an appeal. Tollett is the first Republican to take District 12 since Reconstruction.

    On "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee gave President Trump some advice he will likely decline. He wants the president to stop talking about how Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter sat on the board of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company while he was vice president and overseeing U.S. relations with Ukraine. "It is a mistake" to keep bringing up the Hunter Biden scandal, Huckabee explained, "Because most people don't understand it, it's too complicated. And frankly, it doesn't matter to them."

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The Advertising and Promotion Commission has pulled back from operations at the former home-turned-museum of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Fayetteville with plans to let the lease expire. Commissioners voted 6-0 Monday to scale back programming at the Clinton House Museum. Starting Jan. 1, the commission will pay only rent and maintenance expenses until the lease expires with the University of Arkansas on Dec. 31, 2021, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “Putting together a winding-down plan is not pleasant, it’s not how we thought we would’ve ended the year,” said Molly Rawn, chief executive officer...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A lawsuit filed Tuesday asks a federal judge to require Arkansas election officials to give absentee voters a chance to correct their ballots before they're rejected due to signature issues. The League of Women Voters of Arkansas argues in the lawsuit that Arkansas law regarding absentee ballots disenfranchises voters because they're not given any notice or chance to cure any deficiencies. State law requires election officials to reject absentee ballots that are missing a voter's signature or if there's a mismatch between the signature, address or date of birth on the absentee ballot and the...

    Groups of conservatives, QAnon supporters, and others on social media have jumped on the release of the French coming-of-age film Cuties and a trending “Cancel Netflix” hashtag to associate the company with pedophilia. A Netflix spokesperson on Thursday defended “Cuties” as an award-winning “social commentary,” according to the DCNF, “Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children. It’s an award-winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up – and we’d encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie.” But...

It is also outrageous that the NBA has caved to Chinese government demands for contrition,” the letter reads. It was co-signed by eight members of Congress, including Republican...
