    What Veterans Say About Effort to Remove Peace Cross War Memorial

    When Jake Hill heard that an atheist activist group had sued to have a historic World War I memorial pulled down because some people were offended by the monument’s Christian symbolism, the Marine got angry.

    “Americans of all faith backgrounds should be outraged,” Hill, a lance corporal in the Marine Corps, said.

    Hill, of Madison, Wisconsin, was awarded the Silver Star during the Afghanistan War for his valor in leading his squad through enemy fire in 2010 to rescue a wounded fellow Marine. He also received a Purple Heart after being wounded in action during his service from 2008 to 2013. READ MORE...

    Trump Calls Out Broward’s Brenda Sipes Over Florida Election Mess

    President Donald Trump is scrutinizing the Florida election-recount process, and he isn’t the only one—largely because of Broward County.

    On election night, it appeared likely that Rick Scott, the outgoing Florida Republican governor, had defeated Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson for his seat. It appeared even more likely that Republican ex-Rep. Ron DeSantis defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, to be Florida’s next governor.

    By Friday morning, both Nelson and Gillum were challenging the outcome. READ MORE...

  • Liberals Aren't Losing Faith in Our Constitutional System. They Just Don't Like Its Results.

    Liberals Aren’t Losing Faith in Our Constitutional System. They Just Don’t Like Its Results.

    In liberals’ imaginations, there are only four ways to lose elections — and none has to do with their leftist turn, their hysterics or their one-dimensional identity politics.

    Democrats say they lose because of gerrymandering, voter suppression (sometimes known as asking for ID), Russian mind-control rays deployed by social media, and our antiquated and unfair Constitution.

    That last excuse is becoming increasingly popular among pundits who continue to invent new crises to freak out about.

    Take Vox’s Ezra Klein, a longtime champion of direct democracy: “I don’t think people are ready for the crisis that will follow if Democrats win the House popular vote but not the majority,” he tweeted before the midterms. “After Kavanaugh, Trump, Garland, Citizens United, Bush v. Gore, etc, the party is on the edge of losing faith in the system (and reasonably so).” READ MORE...

    How Trump is Toughening Asylum Rules for Immigrants

    President Donald Trump’s administration is clamping down on asylum rules for immigrants coming to the United States, the White House announced Thursday.
