    Five-year-old Teague Pollard saying the Pledge of Allegiance before virtual school. Remember when we used to say the Pledge of Allegiance every day before school started. When I was in Girl’s State, we would get up every day at the crack of dawn, dress up and gather round the flag to say the Pledge of Allegiance. I, for one, believe that children who grow up not having any respect for this nation are bound to disrespect the country and its people. It’s important that they learn to take pride in their country and our flag. To illustrate my point, I...
  • Florida Is Open, New York Is Closed, And The Latter Has More COVID Deaths

    Thus far in Florida, approximately 20,000 people have died of COVID-19. In Texas, the number stands around 24,000, and in New York, about 35,000.New York is the smallest of the three, with 19.54 million residents. Then comes Florida, with 21.67 million, before Texas, with 28.7 million residents.COVID numbers are difficult to trust. Cases are often counted more than once as patients go in and out of the hospital, and some deaths are attributed to COVID that are barely related, if at all.There’s a perverse incentive to write down “COVID” and get state and federal money, no doubt, but one thing...

    According to Carhart’s website, the banned procedures are being done at his facility on babies at 14 to 22 weeks of gestation. BELLEVUE, Nebraska, November 26, 2020 (Operation Rescue) — A new Nebraska state law that bans a risky, yet common procedure used to abort babies in the second trimester has gone into effect without legal challenge, but the one abortionist who the law would most affect is denying he uses the procedure — a denial Operation Rescue believes to be patently false. The new law, known as Legislative Bill 814, bans the use of an abortion process known as...

    Bellevue, NE – A new Nebraska state law that bans a risky, yet common procedure used to abort babies in the second trimester has gone into effect without legal challenge, but the one abortionist who the law would most affect is denying he uses the procedure – a denial Operation Rescue believes to be patently false. The new law, known as Legislative Bill 814, bans the use of an abortion process known as Dilation and Evacuation (D&E). That involves slowly dilating a woman’s cervix then removing the unborn baby through dismemberment. Sometimes a drug called Digoxin is used to stop...

    Live Action News ^ | Nov 23 2020 | Cassy Fiano-Chesser
    A Nebraska bill banning dismemberment abortions was passed by the legislature earlier this year. Now, with no legal challenges against it, it has officially taken effect. The Omaha World-Herald reported that the law took effect last week. This means that dilation and evacuation, or D&E, abortions are now illegal in the state of Nebraska. Often committed in the second trimester, a D&E is a violent procedure that takes several days to complete, and results in the dismemberment of a child who is often still alive. On the first day, the abortionist inserts laminaria into the mother’s cervix to begin dilation....

    Multiple people have been injured and one person has been arrested following an active shooting and explosion at a Sonic restaurant in Nebraska as flames engulfed a vehicle outside. In a media briefing Sgt. Andy Jashinske with Bellevue Police said the bomb squad is at the scene as of 12.30am Sunday and checking for more potential devices after the blast inside a U-Haul outside the eatery. 'There was a truck with some fireworks or some type of device,' he said.

    If Donald Trump doesn’t take the Oath of Office on January 20, 2021, one principal but little-noted reason for this may be that he crossed one of the most powerful and least accountable forces in the nation: the military-industrial complex. As Trump said last September, “the top people in the Pentagon…want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy. But we’re getting out of the endless wars, you know how we’re doing.” Now, however, that Joe Biden has been anointed “President-elect”...

    By the time President Donald Trump finished speaking to thousands of supporters at Omaha's Eppley Airfield on Tuesday night and jetted away on Air Force One, the temperature had plunged to nearly freezing. But as long lines of MAGA-clad attendees queued up for buses to take them to distant parking lots, it quickly became clear that something was wrong. The buses, the huge crowd soon learned, couldn't navigate the jammed airport roads. For hours, attendees - including many elderly Trump supporters - stood in the withering cold, as police scrambled to help the most at-risk get to warmth. The confusion...

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday directed his supporters’ attention to an interview of Hunter Biden’s former business partner conducted by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “Moments ago we learned about the other reason Joe Biden has been hiding in his basement,” Trump said at a rally in Omaha, Nebraska. Trump spoke about the story at a campaign rally that began about six minutes after Carlson’s interview with Tony Bobulinski concluded. The president described the new information revealed by Bobulinski as “shocking, disturbing, and explosive.” “The business partner made clear that Biden’s denial of involvement in his son’s corrupt business dealings...

    New early voting data showed Democrats failing to hit their mark in several battleground states, giving Trump campaign officials more reasons for optimism Tuesday as President Trump rallied voters in key Midwestern states and Democrat Joseph R. Biden made a play for traditionally red Georgia. In Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona, Democrats are falling short of their target of 70% of early votes cast either in-person or by mail. That’s the lead they hoped to build up to stave off an expected higher Republican turnout on Election Day.“The Democrats have not opened up a large enough lead in...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Speaker Nancy Pelosi once predicted she’d have the 2020 House Democratic majority secured by November — of 2019. Now, days before the Nov. 3 election, she seems to have done it, and she’s expanding her reach. With control of the House hardly contested, Pelosi is working to fortify Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and win extra House seats in case Congress is called on to resolve any Electoral College dispute with President Donald Trump. Pelosi said she feels so confident Democrats will keep the House this election, she’s already preparing to win the next one in 2022....

    One day before Jake Gardner fatally shot James Scurlock outside his bar in downtown Omaha, President Trump threatened to send the military to Minneapolis in response to violent clashes between police and protesters following the death of George Floyd in police custody, tweeting “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” The timing of Trump’s tweet, which Twitter has since removed from public view for violating its policy on glorifying violence, “is significant in terms of Jake Gardner’s affinity for the president,” special prosecutor Fredrick Franklin told members of the press in Omaha on Wednesday. Last Tuesday, Franklin announced that a...

    The harassment campaign against Gardner did not begin with the rioter that he shot in self-defense, but it may have been the reason that the mob was at his bar smashing his windows in the first place. For years, the far-left in Omaha has been targeting Gardner for supporting President Donald Trump and for building a third, unisex, bathroom in his bar for transgender customers to use. Garner was a Marine and veteran of deployments to Iraq and Haiti. He described himself as a libertarian, but voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 and volunteered for his campaign in three...
