    PHOENIX — A Phoenix doctor is accused of pointing a gun at a small group of protesters outside Acacia Women's Center on Thursday, October 10, according to Phoenix police. Doctor Ronald Yunis was arrested by Phoenix police on Friday, October 18, on charges of aggravated assault, according to the Phoenix Police Department. A YouTube video posted by Apologia Studios depicts a group of anti-abortion protesters outside the Acacia Women's Center on October 10. As Dr. Yunis pulls out of the women's center parking lot, he appears to brandish a weapon, briefly pointing it at the protesters. ABC15 reached out to...

    FULL TITLE: Jason Chaffetz: Pelosi and impeachment – There have already been 3 votes. Here's why there may not be a fourth Speaker Pelosi isn't refusing to hold a vote on impeachment. She is refusing to hold a fourth vote on impeachment. There have already been three votes. They all failed. Miserably. In other words, Congress has explicitly voted NOT to pursue impeachment. In December 2017, January 2018, and against in July 2019 under Pelosi's leadership, the House held votes on whether to open an impeachment inquiry. The results weren't even close. All three votes came up as "privileged resolutions."...

    Lousiana GOP Sen. John Kennedy has blocked a bill drafted by a top Democratic Senator that would accelerate the flow of Indian visa workers and immigrants into Americans’ office jobs. “The American people deserve an immigration system that looks like somebody designed it on purpose,” Kennedy told Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin during a polite conversation on the Senate floor. He said: I am rising to object [to Durbin’s bill] because a number of my colleagues … would like a little additional time to study this bill. But equally important, if not more important, many of my colleagues’ sentiment is that...
  • Hillary Clinton says Tulsi Gabbard is a 'Russian asset' groomed to ensure Trump reelection

    Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008. Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Abortionist Forced to Admit Under Oath That She Said “I Want a Lamborghini” in Relation to “Compensation” for Aborted Babies’ Body Parts A Planned Parenthood abortionist was just forced to admit under oath in our trial that she did in fact say, “I want a Lamborghini,” in relation to “what I would receive in compensation” for “fetal tissue” procurement – i.e. aborted babies’ body parts. We recently told you how, despite their legal efforts to keep certain evidence out of court, Planned Parenthood’s own legal team has opened the door, and disturbing evidence continues to mount....

    World Net Daily ^ | October 17, 2019 | By WND Staff
    There's been a "game-changer" at the California civil trial in which Planned Parenthood is suing the investigators whose undercover videos exposed the abortion industry's scheme to profit from the sale of baby body parts. For the first time, jurors were allowed to see portions of the videos that were released in 2015. The videos -- featuring Planned Parenthood executives making admissions on hidden camera -- caused a furor that caught the attention of lawmakers. California regulators shut down businesses that had been buying body parts, and two congressional committees referred companies and individuals for possible prosecution. The committees cited a...

    In a secret interview, Rep. Adam Schiff, leader of the House Democratic effort to impeach President Trump, pressed former United States special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker to testify that Ukrainian officials felt pressured to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter as a result of Trump withholding U.S. military aid to Ukraine. Volker denied that was the case, noting that Ukrainian leaders did not even know the aid was being withheld and that they believed their relationship with the U.S. was moving along satisfactorily, without them having done anything Trump mentioned in his notorious July 25 phone conversation...

    The Heritage Foundation ^ | Oct. 10, 2019 | Stephen Moore
    Key Takeaways 1. Middle-class incomes, after adjusting for inflation, have surged by $5,003 since Donald Trump became president in January 2017. 2. These surges in income, have occurred at exactly the time when many liberal economists and media talking heads were shouting “recession.” 3. These latest income numbers also squarely contradict the claims by Democratic presidential candidates.

    White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced during a White House press briefing that the 2020 G7 summit will be held at Trump National in Doral, Florida, from June 10-12. "We used the same set of criteria that previous administrations have used," Mulvaney said. He said Doral was "far and away the best physical facility for this meeting." President Donald Trump is sure to receive criticism and will face questions about whether he stands to profit financially from the large summit. Trump has received such criticism in the past for hosting foreign leaders, including China's President Xi Jinping,...

    BRUSSELS: European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker congratulated Prime Minister Boris Johnson on their Brexit withdrawal deal on Thursday and said it meant there should be "no further delay". "We have a deal, and this deal means there is no need for any kind of prolongation," Juncker told reporters as he welcomed the British leader to EU headquarters ahead of summit talks. British MPs are expected to vote on the deal on Saturday. Pro-EU parliamentarians hope they can defeat it and Brexit can still be delayed to allow a general election or a new referendum on whether to leave the EU...

    From The El Paso Times On Thursday, President Donald Trump — who has made several trips to the state while in office — will be in Dallas. This time he'll be in Texas as an incumbent seeking re-election, working to win the state's 38 hotly sought after electoral votes in 2020. The president, joined by thousands of expected attendees, will be at the American Airlines Center on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. CDT. As he travels to the Lone Star State, Trump is tied up in controversy around the impeachment inquiry into conversations with the Ukraine president. This will be...

    By Yi Whan-woo, Kim Yoo-chul As nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the United States remain in a stalemate after no "substantial outcome" from their recent encounter in Sweden, the lack of visible progress in the denuclearization dialogue is raising concerns that the North is "buying time" for its military and nuclear advancement. During an Asan Institute for Policy Studies security forum held in Seoul, Tuesday, Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst at the Washington-based RAND Corporation, claimed that despite North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's promise to end his nuclear program, Pyongyang has not taken any meaningful measures toward this....

    Everybody thought we had to keep our troops around so the Turks wouldn't invade Northern Syria and kill off all the Kurds. Everybody wanted them to negotiate with the Kurds and figured the only way to do that was little by little, by getting allies to reason with Turkey and hem and haw and maybe buy her off as in times past. Meanwhile, we had to keep the two ancient enemies, Kurds and Turks, apart. Negotiations would ever happen only if our troops stayed. Trump saw the situation differently. As beautifully laid out by Sundance at Conservative Treehouse, removing our...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to take the case of a public school teacher who required her students to recite the Islamic "conversion prayer" or receive a failing grade. The Thomas More Law Center is defending Caleigh Wood, a Christian student in 11th grade at La Plata High School in La Plata, Maryland. Wood refused to deny her faith "by making a written profession of the Muslim conversion prayer known as the shahada – 'There is no god by allah and Muhammad is the messenger of allah,'" Thomas More said. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled...
  • Pelosi: No House vote on impeachment inquiry [Developing]

    The Hill ^ | October 15, 2019 | Scott Wong, Mike Lillis
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi continued to stand firm Tuesday, insisting she will not stage a vote on the House floor to officially launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Trump and his Republican allies have been pressuring Pelosi to hold a formal vote to begin the investigation — a move they believe would grant them more power and influence in the process, including the ability to call and subpoena their own witnesses. Last month, Pelosi formally launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump after months of resisting calls from her caucus to do so, but she has faced pressure to hold an...

    Officials in Ukraine reportedly opened an investigation into an energy company that employed former Vice President Joe Biden’s son long before President Donald Trump’s July 25 nothing-burger of a telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that spurred the Democrats’ haphazard, increasingly Kafkaesque impeachment inquiry. The time element of the revelation, devastating as it is to the 2016-election-nullification push disguised as an impeachment process, has been largely ignored by the mainstream media which is overly preoccupied –as usual— attacking President Trump. The information came last week from investigative reporter John Solomon, who recently was hired as a Fox News...
