    Calif. Republican says bill allows state to 'discriminate based on race when providing servicesA California Democratic lawmaker accused his Republican colleague, the state assembly’s first Muslim member, of White supremacy for declining to back a bill that would allow state funds to go toward programs based on race in what critics are calling state-sanctioned discrimination. Democratic Assemblymember Corey Jackson, who proposed ACA-7, said it’s meant to address "persistent disparities in health, education, and economic outcomes for certain communities" in California. Jackson's bill would amend the state’s constitution in order to allow taxpayer money to fund "culturally specific programs in any...

    Chile’s most prominent right-wing party has romped an election on Sunday night aimed at selecting members for the constitutional assembly responsible for drafting the country’s new constitution.The assembly was tasked with creating a new constitution to replace the one that was implemented during the military rule of General Augusto Pinochet which many credited for making Chile the most prosperous country in the region.A draft by a predominantly left-wing assembly was overwhelmingly rejected in a national referendum. The draft had proposed numerous changes, including replacing the Senate with a Chamber of Regions and recognizing Chile as a “plurinational state,” granting indigenous...

  • Pritzker’s executive orders unchecked as lawmakers return home until January

    The Center Square ^ | 10/29/21 | Greg Bishop
    It’s been more than 20 months since Gov. J.B. Pritzker began managing the state’s response to COVID-19 through executive order and the Democrat-controlled legislature remains hands-off. Pritzker’s first orders, with accompanying emergency declarations, were in March 2020. The orders concerning COVID-19 have evolved since then and range from a stay-at-home order that lasted more than ten weeks, business closures with varying degrees of capacity and threats of sending state police to enforce, school closures, mask mandates and most recently vaccine mandates for a variety of sectors. Lawmakers left the capitol after the end of the veto session Thursday and won’t...

    When you run down the list of issues the Oath Keepers are worried about, it reads a lot like a bill of particulars from the American Civil Liberties Union. The Oath Keepers don't like warrantless searches. They're upset that the executive branch has claimed the power to classify American citizens as enemy combatants, detain them indefinitely, and try them before military tribunals. They worry that a large-scale terrorist attack similar to 9/11 could lead to the mass detention of Arabs or Muslims, just as Japanese Americans were detained during World War II. They worry about crackdowns on political speech, protest,...
  • The Church;Visible and 4

    The True Church exists in two simultaneous modes; the visible and invisible church. By the visible church we refer to the local assemblies of God’s people, who believe in Jesus, worship Him, break bread and who observe and propagate the teachings of the Apostles. The visible church, can be referred to as the churches. They are the witness of God (for better or worse) in every community where they are established. Churches come and they go, they can shine brightly, or they can apostasize, they have differing histories, experiences, expressions of worship, and they can be seen by men. “Let...
  • The Case For Church; church 2

    I have been mulling around several different topics to address on this subject; what is church, what does it mean to be part of a church, how should a healthy church function, God’s power and reality in the church, etc, all of which I intend to get to. But I wanted to begin by cutting to the chase, I want to make the case for the Church. Why should Christians be part of a church, and give themselves to that form of the work of God? It was a given, at one point, in my own experience of being converted...

    A Canadian pastor stood up to police who disrupted his service and shamed them into leaving. Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don’t you dare come back here!” “Can you imagine those psychopaths? Passover. The holiest Christian festival of the year and they’re coming to intimidate Christians during the holiest festival? Unbelievable. What is wrong with those sick psychopaths. It’s beyond me. How dare they,” he continued. The police appear completely cowed by the force of his...

    New York Assembly Republicans will introduce a measure to form an Impeachment Commission designed to gather "facts and evidence" regarding Governor Andrew Cuomo's handling of nursing home deaths during the pandemic. Nursing home deaths have plagued Cuomo's response to the pandemic and he's facing heavy criticism for withholding information from legislators. Some have called for his resignation and others pushed for voters to recall him, but save a successful challenger in the 2022 election, the only method of removing Cuomo from office is through impeachment. On Thursday, Assembly Republicans announced a resolution to create an impeachment commission consisting of eight...

    Wisconsin lawmakers this week will hold a public hearing on alleged election irregularities. The state Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections hearing will take place on Dec. 11 at the Wisconsin State Capitol. It will deal with the investigation into “numerous irregularities with the 2020 general election,” Rep. Ron Tusler, a Republican who chairs the committee, said in a statement. “The goal of the ongoing investigation is transparency. Wisconsin voters deserve fair and accurately counted elections. I want you to know that their vote counted,” he said. The hearing will include testimony from eyewitnesses, experts, and elections officials. Assembly Speaker...

    As coronavirus cases surge again nationwide the Supreme Court late Wednesday temporarily barred New York from enforcing certain attendance limits at houses of worship in areas designated as hard hit by the virus. The justices split 5-4 to bar the state from enforcing the restrictions against the groups for now, with new Justice Amy Coney Barrett in the majority. It was the conservative's first publicly discernible vote as a justice. The court’s three liberal justices and Chief Justice John Roberts dissented

Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) warned on Sunday that certain areas of New York City are heading toward tighter coronavirus restrictions, including the most restrictive “red zone” which prohibits all gatherings deemed “non-essential.” The Democrat governor stated some areas, namely Staten Island, Long Island, and parts of Manhattan, are “in the warning track” and could soon face additional restrictions due to concerns over rising infection rates and hospital capacity.

    Democrats appear to have lost at least three and as many as five seats in the New Jersey Legislature, including the only Senate race on the ballot. And they did not flip any of the three districts they were targeting in this year’s election, which took place yesterday. With 100% of districts reporting, Republicans captured the Senate seat in the southernmost 1st District, as well as both Assembly seats there. They also held a smaller lead in the neighboring 2nd, a split district with a Republican senator that includes Atlantic City. That race, however, had not been called with fewer...

    This is why it matters that California Assembly Leaders Chad Mayes and Kristen Olsen had an affair they wanted to keep quiet While I am a political analyst more comfortable with legislation and policy, occasionally the personal lives of politicians become entangled with politics and even policy. The affair of Republican Assembly Leader Chad Mayes and former Assembly Leader Kristen Olsen is one such situation where personal lives intersected with politics. This is personal and difficult to write about however, it is necessary. The shamelessness exhibited in politics today is not new. But the current willingness by Republicans to sell...

    In a deliberate “show of force,” federal and local police forces raided a political meeting in Texas, fingerprinting and photographing all attendees as well as confiscating all cell phones and personal recording devices. Members of the Republic of Texas, a seccession movement dedicated to restoring Texas as an independent constitutional republic, had gathered Feb. 14 in a Bryan, Texas, meeting hall along with public onlookers. They were debating issues of currency, international relations and celebrating the birthday of one of their oldest members.
