    In a parallel with current events, a new film recalls the 1969 trial of the Chicago 7. Author urges progressive Christians organize and fight in order to win. 'Chicago 7' film about iconic '60s trial disappoints Netflix's newly released film "The Trial of the Chicago 7," recalls when the Youth International Party (or Yippie) leaders along with six others were tried in 1969 by the federal government for conspiracy to incite a riot during demonstrations at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in August 1968. Viewers will see ample parallels to our time in this flat and too staid film....

    TROY, Mich. (AP) — She walks with the determination of a person who believes the very fate of democracy might depend on the next door she knocks on, head down, shoulders forward. She wears nothing fussy, the battle fatigues of her troupe: yoga pants and sneakers. She left her Lincoln Aviator idling in the driveway, the driver door open -- if this house wasn’t the one to save the nation, she can move quickly to the next. For most of her life, until 2016, Lori Goldman had been politically apathetic. Had you offered her $1 million, she says, she...

    No way we can compete with that. We can only thank God for term limits. If you all can't acknowledge his pied-piper-like talent you're naive. It's Sam Cooke/Tom Brady. Timing and speech inflection. Suave, the looks and sophistication. Plus he kept his pants on around of all those women who wanted to take theirs off in front of him. Didn't have to work hard and didn't want to. He just had it whereas Trump does 3 rally a day-hard work.

    Former vice president Joe Biden held a campaign rally Saturday in Pennsylvania, and he referenced supporters of President Donald Trump protesting outside the event, calling them “chumps.” Biden was speaking about the coronavirus, and talked about how Trump separates out red states and blue states when discussing how well the response is being handled. “By the way, we don’t do things like those chumps out there with the microphone are doing, the Trump guys,” said Biden. “Look, we’ve got to come together.”
  • Pastor John Piper and the 2020 elections: A respectful response to his suggestion that Christians might do best by sitting out the presidential election, since a vote for either Trump or Biden cannot be justified.

    John Piper is one of the most respected Christian leaders in America, and I personally hold him in high esteem. Yet I differ with his suggestion that Christians might do best by sitting out the presidential election, since a vote for either Trump or Biden cannot be justified.Michael Brown holds a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages and Literatures from New York University and has served as a professor at a number of seminaries. He is the author of 25 books and hosts the nationally syndicated, daily talk radio show, the Line of Fire.Before sharing my differences, though, I want to...

    SYCAMORE, Pa. — The one thing all the guys know about Sara Vance is she never cries. Which is why her co-workers — all men — dropped their tools when Vance suddenly broke down in a flood of tears after she failed to shovel coal into a conveyor belt. Pregnant with her first child and just weeks before the due date, she was 1,200 feet below the surface of the earth with no easy way out.

    Republican pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News’ Bret Baier on Thursday night, that his "profession is done" if President Trump wins re-election come Nov. 3, and proves the national polls wrong yet again. “I hate to acknowledge it, because that's my industry — at least partially — but the public will have no faith. No confidence. Right now, the biggest issue is the trust deficit,” Luntz said in response to Baier asking how pollsters will fare if they are wrong in predicting the 2020 presidential election. “Pollsters did not do a good job in 2016. So, if Donald Trump surprises...

    John Piper has issued a blistering condemnation of President Donald Trump, warning Christian voters that the president's “deadly behavior” will lead the U.S. to “destruction of more kinds than we can imagine.” On Thursday, the influential pastor and writer published what he referred to as a “long-overdue” blog post in which he pondered the implications of the 2020 election. Piper, who pastored Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis for almost 33 years, reminded Christians that "it is not a small thing to treat lightly a pattern of public behaviors that lead to death." He pointed out that all of these sins...

    “The View” co-host Joy Behar said on Friday that President Trump and members of his administration should be charged with “crimes against humanity” because of its immigration policy and vowed to not “be a part of a country” that separates children from their parents. A contentious moment in Thursday’s presidential debate came as Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden sparred over immigration policy. Trump attacked Biden for the Obama-Biden administration's "catch-and-release" policy, in which illegal immigrants were allowed to walk free ahead of their court dates after being arrested for being in the country illegally. Conservatives have said that allowed...

    PHILADELPHIA - Here in the birthplace of American democracy, election officials are scrambling to prepare for a presidential vote they fear could plunge the nation into a historic political crisis. Philadelphia’s Board of Elections plans to move its counting operations to a 125,000-square foot space in the city’s convention center. Dozens of staffers, feeding expensive new machines to open envelopes and process mail-in ballots, will spend days tallying hundreds of thousands of votes - under intense scrutiny from partisan observers. The workers likely will discard thousands of ballots that are not properly completed or do not arrive in a special...

    Dozens of voters in a heavily Democratic county in Florida and across several states reported receiving emails on Tuesday purporting to come from a right-wing group threatening to "come after" them unless they vote for President Trump. But an examination of the messages, which are now under investigation by state and federal authorities, shows they were sent via servers located overseas, raising questions about their origin amid concerns about voter intimidation just two weeks before Election Day.

    In my last article, I explained why the only thing worse than Trump is Biden, and therefore Trump needs to win the election. Face it. Both men, in their own ways, are fronting for massive COVID crimes. Biden hopes to front for even greater tyranny if he can gain the presidency. To excuse the two of them, on the basis that they’re blind to the fake science, doesn’t cut it. They’re willing to assault the Constitutional and natural freedoms of every American. They’re willing to go where NO emergency is permitted to go. Natural disaster, health disaster, political violence, war—there...

    A sizable share of Americans eschewed the major-party dichotomy and voted for third-party candidates in 2016, helping deliver the White House to President Donald Trump. But four years later, almost all of the likely voters who opted against both the Republican and Democratic nominees last time around aren’t planning to do so again, Morning Consult Political Intelligence tracking shows — and a slim majority are siding with former Vice President Joe Biden. Daily tracking of likely voters conducted Oct. 16-18 found 53 percent of likely voters who opted for someone other than a major-party nominee in 2016 said they’re backing...

    So here we are, faced with the re-election of President Donald Trump and the prospect of a nation still struggling against Covid-19, reeling from the ravages of a flattened economy and in pain from civil unrest and our genuine concern for how we treat one another. I, of course, disagree with Biden on many issues and policies, sometimes vigorously; and it is my fervent hope that he will pursue policies that will help our country heal. But this election is not about those issues or policies. Rather, it is about the course of a nation and the character of her...

Yet this year, she is voting for Joe Biden and is encouraging fellow Christians to distance themselves from a president who she says is trying “to hijack our faith for votes.”

    When Donald Trump first won the US presidential election four years ago, many around the world were left shaken up for days. A medical journal is now asking whether news of that political event had any immediate health impacts. The answer is yes, there was a noticeable increase in the number of people hospitalized in southern California due to cardiovascular diseases, say researchers from Harvard University and Kaiser Permanente, a health care company in the US. The research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on October 12, found that such stress poses a greater health...
