    This truly has been a week to remember, and not just because of impeachment. – In fact, it could be argued that the idiotic ending to the Democrats’ impeachment sham turns out to only modestly important in the context of the other major events that happened over the last seven days. The impeachment sham notwithstanding, President Trump just had what may well have been the greatest week of his entire presidency, and that is a truly great thing for America. Let’s take a look at this truly momentous week: Markets – This country has seldom seen a run in the...

    "President Trump on Wednesday attacked Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) during a campaign rally in Michigan, claiming the Democrat used to “kiss his ass” in the past when Trump was a supporter. Trump’s remarks about Schumer came after a rant on immigration during an at times rambling speech to a crowd in Battle Creek, Mich. “You know, Chuck Schumer. Cryin’ Chuck. Cryin’ Chuck Schumer. I used to be a big contributor,” Trump, a former New Yorker, said. “He used to kiss my ass, Chuck Schumer. He’d do anything. He would have done anything for me.” “I didn’t need anything,...

    BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — The City of Battle Creek announced details about President Trump and Vice President Pence's upcoming visit on Wednesday, Dec. 18. They will hold a "Merry Christmas" rally at the Kellogg Arena starting at 7 p.m. City officials said in a press release that they "anticipate a larger crowd than the arena's capacity." So there will be a designated overflow area outside at the Festival Market Square. The president and vice president's visit Wednesday will cause road and business closures around the city for the day, public transit detours, and may also cause an overflow of people...

    Britain's voters rejected soundly the Labor Party, whose former leader Jeremy Corbyn has called Hamas and Hezb'allah terrorists "his friends" and for whom Hamas expressed reciprocal support. Americans must similarly ostracize and marginalize politicians, organizations, and religious institutions that give tacit support to Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezb'allah, and other terrorist organizations. There is a huge legal difference (no criminal liability versus up to 15 years in prison), but little moral difference, between giving material support to terrorists and seeking to damage Israel's economy through boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS). Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who endorsed Jeremy Corbyn, supports BDS, as do Ilhan...

    "The road, trees, houses and even ourselves were bathed in a blinding phosphorescent-like glow which had its center in a bright streak in the sky above us," highway construction superintendent Leroy Milhan of Centerville, Michigan, would recall in a paper published the following year. "It passed over us toward the west. Immediately came a muffled report or jar that shook houses and the very earth like an earthquake." The following day, the Washington Times reported that "telegraph and telephone communications and electric lighting plants in several cities in southern Michigan and northern Indiana are out of commission" as a result...

    Many years ago for the BBC I interviewed T Coraghessan Boyle, author of a novel set in Battle Creek, Michigan - "The Cereal Bowl of the World!" - in the early years of the 20th century. The title of Boyle's book was The Road To Wellville, which in fact was the name of a pamphlet written by C W Post after a stay at Dr Kellogg's sanatorium in Battle Creek, Michigan. Mr Post was so inspired by the Kellogg recommendations on "clean living" that he started his own breakfast cereal - Grape Nuts - and included a copy of his...

    A 12-year-old Michigan girl who just made it through the biggest fight of her life has been dealt another blow. In August 2012, Rose McGrath, of Battle Creek, was diagnosed with leukemia. But last week, her family received a letter from her school that would turn her world upside down. As CBS affiliate WWMT reports, the letter addressed concerns regarding Rose's attendance and academic performance, and stated that Rose had been dismissed from St. Joseph Middle School. "I didn't do anything wrong, but they still got rid of me," Rose said. screen-shot-2015-04-24-at-11-24-21-am.png Rose McGrath WWMT Rose has been with the...

    KALAMAZOO, MI -- Planned Parenthood Mid and South Michigan is closing its Battle Creek clinic, citing "increasing competition and declining patient demand" as a result of the Affordable Care Act. The last day of operation will be Jan. 31. Spokeswoman Desiree Cooper said the need for Planned Parenthood's health-care services has declined because of the ACA, which has greatly improved access to subsidized contraceptives and women's health-care services. The ACA requires insurances plan to provide women with an annual physical and contraceptives without a deductible or co-pay. That means women who formerly were reliant on Planned Parenthood for services and...

    Jessica Olmstead has no problem staring down wild animals. The 17-year-old Harper Creek High School senior has taken up one of nature's oldest, and possibly most dangerous sports, hunting. In the middle of August, Olmstead and her father, Tim, took a hunting trip up to Oba, Ontario, Canada, where the high school senior shot down a bear more than twice her size. "When I go out hunting, it's really exciting," Olmstead said. "Whenever I see a bear I just want to go at it. When you're hunting, your heart is racing, your blood is pumping, and you feel that adrenaline...

    BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (The Enquirer) -- Someone stole at least 600 pairs of panties Saturday from the Victoria's Secret store in the Lakeview Square Mall, Battle Creek police reported today.

This latest theft follows an incident on Oct. 29, 2009, when store officials reported that 80 bras valued...

    BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — Battle Creek police have killed a black bear that state officials believe wandered out of the wilds and well beyond its usual comfort zone. The Battle Creek Enquirer reports Officer Troy Gilleylen was looking for the victim of a domestic assault early Friday when he shined his patrol car spotlight down a street and saw the bear. He tried to get a closer look, but the bear ran away. Police say they shot the animal four times but it kept disappearing. They followed drops of blood on the pavement to the wounded bear and killed...

Nick Smith, but an early endorsement by the ever-powerful Right to Life of Michigan could stop several anti-abortion candidates in their tracks. The reason: Right to Life wants to block the nomination of former state Sen. Joe Schwarz of Battle Creek, the only abortion rights GOP candidate.
