    A school system in Maine has instituted its own burgeoning Red Guard called the “Civil Rights Team.” This benign-sounding organization of kids is supposed to ensure that student rights are upheld. What has happened instead led to parents sounding off at the latest school board meeting to complain that the Civil Rights Team is just a bullying organization with an agenda. The Maine Wire covered the story: "Kristen Day said students affiliated with one of RSU 14’s Civil Rights Teams harassed her daughter. When her daughter refused to speak about her sexuality, two students affiliated with the club began to...

A police car was torched and buildings were vandalized on Saturday during...

    According to Science magazine, the average night sky brightened by 9.6% per year from 2011 to 2022. Many of us have experienced our own encounters with the reduction of nighttime quality of life because of poorly positioned or excessively bright lights. A recent documentary on the subject of Maine’s skies, “Defending the Dark,” described the public health effects of constant over-bright nighttime artificial light. More light at night is linked to cancer; glare threatens public safety of motorists and pedestrians, and more light takes the night sky away from us earthbound dwellers, something all flora and fauna have evolved under...

    A Maine mom has called for an investigation into her 13-year-old daughter’s school after she claims a social worker gave the teen a gender-transitioning device known as a “chest binder” and encouraged her to keep it secret from her parents. Amber Lavigne, of Damariscotta, told the National Review that she found her daughter’s chest-flattening garment in December and confronted the teen, who claimed a friend gave it to her. “I want you to think long and hard if there’s anything else you want to share with me about this because I am going to reach out to your friend’s mom,”...

    PORTLAND, Maine -- The U.S. would risk enabling the spread of extremism in Europe if it stopped providing support to Ukraine in its war with Russia, Maine's independent senator said Monday in the wake of meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Sens. Angus King of Maine and Jack Reed of Rhode Island, who sit on the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services, traveled to Kyiv last week to meet with Zelenskyy. King said he came back more certain that U.S. aid to Ukraine is vital. Ukraine is slated to receive $44.9 billion in U.S. aid as part of the recent...

    A Damariscotta mom demanded the resignation of several public school officials at a school board meeting Wednesday following her discovery that a school social worker had begun secretly transitioning her 13-year-old daughter’s gender. In an emotionally charged address to the school board, Amber Lavigne said a Central Lincoln County School System (CLCSS) social worker at Great Salt Bay Community School in Damariscotta provided a chest binder to her daughter — a gender transitioning device the employee encouraged the young girl to keep secret from her parents. Lavigne said she’d never met the social worker — Samuel Roy — and had...

    The Biden administration has been hesitant to send the drone to Ukraine amid fears that sensitive technologies may end up in Russian hands. What's happening: A group of 16 bipartisan senators, led by Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), is urging Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to answer a series of questions on transferring the MQ-1C Gray Eagle, since the armed drone is Ukraine’s “highest priority” military transfer request. The Biden administration considered transferring the MQ-1C for the last several months across 24 assistance packages. During that time, Russia has started using Iranian TB-2 drones, and the technology is threatening...

    As most are well aware by now, the disgraced founder of FTX Sam Bankman-Fried was the Democrat party’s second-largest donor just behind George Soros. As reported by The Gateway Pundit, in the 2020 presidential election, Bankman-Fried dished millions to the Biden campaign and followed it up by handing out over $40 million dollars to democrats in the 2022 primaries and midterms. Forbes reported last year that Bankman-Fried also donated to six RINOs who voted to impeach President Trump. Forbes reported : Since July, Bankman-Fried has made $5,800 contributions, the maximum individuals can give directly to Congressional campaigns, to the committees...

    I've been keeping track of election results from Fox News updates. (Of those that "count," Fox is better than CNN, NBC, AP and others.) Election outcomes seem to be permanently stuck while a few states get their acts together, submit their results, and someone in the news "calls" the results as decided. Republican victories in the House have remain stagnant, while the Democrats continue to pick up seats. Here's where it still stands on Fox's map (as of 11/12/2022, 11:30 PST): House of Representatives: Republican: 211/218 needed Democrat: 201/218 needed Where are those yet uncalled 23-25 races*?

    PORTLAND, Maine — In November, Portland residents are being asked to approve sweeping changes to the city’s charter including controversial items that would result in a strengthened mayor, a financially independent school board and a citizen-led police oversight board. But, amid the ongoing fury, one charter change question among the eight-question list has been largely overshadowed. It would make Portland the only municipality that officially recognizes in its charter that it sits on unceded land, stolen from Indigenous peoples by European colonizers. The question, which would alter the governing document’s preamble, was written by charter commissioner Pat Washburn. It reads,...
