Office of Planning, said in a statement that urged residents and city leaders to engage in the federal review of the multibillion-dollar project. The 40-mile “superconducting magnetic levitation train system,” commonly called...

    On Friday’s New Day, CNN guest host Erica Hill brought on the President of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives Lynda Williams to spout woke nonsense. Hill egged Williams on with anti-American ranting about “the reality that deep-seated racism has infected the United States of America for hundreds of years and has been allowed to fester and grow.” Williams responded by making her own radical claims, such as, “systemic racism is just as American as apple pie.” Hill began the segment by applauding Williams for attacking Attorney General William Barr, during a recent meeting, for his rejection of...

In a conversation with NAACP President Derrick Johnson and journalist April Ryan, Romney emphasized that voting by mail is secure. “I, for one, believe that vote by mail is a more secure system because if we think there’s been voter fraud or machines have been tampered with, we can always go back to the paper copy, we can compare signatures, we can talk to the person to see if they actually voted, we...
