Images Of Al Franken's Sexual Behavior

Sen. Al Franken is in hot water after a series of bombshell sexual misconduct allegations against him surfaced over the past week.

Leeann Tweeden, a California broadcaster, has accused Franken of sexually molesting her in 2006.

A photo of Franken groping Tweeden surfaced in light of the allegations.


Court Documents Raise Significant Questions About Accusations Against Roy Moore

Court documents involving Leigh Corfman, who says that Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore tried to engage in a sexual encounter with her when she was 14, raise questions about the timeline and narrative of Corfman’s accusations against the politician.

Those accusations were first publicly disclosed in a Washington Post story citing Corfman and her mother, Nancy Wells, as saying that in early 1979, Roy Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, allegedly asked Wells to watch her fourteen-year-old daughter while Wells went into a courtroom for a custody hearing.

Corfman claims that Moore asked the young Corfman for her number. “Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden,” the Post story states, referring to her mother’s home in Gadsden. Corfman’s parents were divorced.

Regarding the original court hearing where Corfman says that Moore asker her for her number while Wells went inside the courtroom, the Post reported that it “confirmed that her mother attended a hearing at the courthouse in February 1979 through divorce records.”

A thorough search of court documents finds one court case in February 1979—a case that took place on February 21, 1979. The Post failed to tell readers that at that February 21, 1979, court case Wells voluntarily gave up custody of Corfman to Corfman’s father, Robert R. Corfman. The two had been divorced since 1974. The custody case was amicable and involved a joint petition by both parents.

The Post further did not tell readers that as a result of the joint petition to change custody, the court ordered the 14-year-old Corfman to move to her father’s house starting on March 4, 1979. Court documents show the father’s address in Ohatchee, and not in Gadsden, where her mother lived and where Corfman says the meetings with Moore took place.

Ex-Boyfriend of Roy Moore Accuser: I Don’t Believe Her

Birmingham, ALABAMA — A minister who says that he dated Beverly Young Nelson at around the same time that Young claims to have been assaulted by senatorial candidate Roy Moore says that he does not believe his ex-girlfriend about the allegations.

The former boyfriend, Jeff DeVine, attended high school with Young and is currently in Thailand, where he runs DeVine Ministries with his wife and twin daughters. He says that as part of his ministry, which focuses on rescuing children, he has worked with victims of rape and other trauma.

A high school classmate of Nelson’s who spoke to Breitbart News remembers DeVine and Nelson briefly dating around 1977. DeVine also provided a copy of his high school yearbook inscribed with a lengthy message by Nelson. The inscription was signed by “Beverly Young,” using Nelson’s maiden name.

Princeton Scholars: Opioid Crisis, Alcoholism, Suicide to Blame for Rising White Working Class Mortality Rate

Economist Angus Deaton and Princeton University Professor Anne Case told the Wall Street Journal that the opioid crisis, alcoholism, and suicide continue to aggravate the American white working class mortality rate.

Dr. Deaton suggested that the country’s white community split into two camps: white Americans with bachelor’s degrees continue to thrive, while American whites without a bachelor’s degree face increasingly dire circumstances.

Dr. Case explained that America’s white working class continues to face higher mortality rates through suicide, drug overdose, and alcoholism.


Mom charged after putting recording device in daughter’s backpack

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The mother of a Norfolk student turned to 10 On Your Side after she was charged by police.

“I tried to be fair, but it’s not fair,” said Sarah Sims. “There is nothing fair about this.”

In late September, Sims says she had enough. She tells 10 On Your Side her 9-year-old daughter was getting bullied at Ocean View Elementary. She says repeated calls and emails to the school went un-returned.

“The thing that bothers me the most is that I am yet to get a response from anyone in the administration,” Sims added.

Sims says she took actions into her own hands. She wanted to prove that nothing was being done to help her 4th grade daughter. She put a digital recorder into her daughter’s backpack in hopes of catching audio from inside the classroom.

“If I’m not getting an answer from you what am I left to do?” she asked.


Illegal Aliens Killed Border Agent by Crushing in His Skull with Rocks, Says NBPC

Exclusive details have emerged on the early morning attack against Border Patrol agents that left one agent dead and another hospitalized in serious condition on November, 19 2017. Breitbart Texas first broke the news of the death and injuries and now the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) says that their agents on the ground have stated that the agents were tracking a group of illegal aliens who then beat the agents with rocks until one was killed and the other hospitalized.

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, also president of the NBPC, stated, “What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking. Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.”

Agent Judd continued, “The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”

A Viewer Writes: Social Security and Your Money

By: Alan R. Bowmaster

Like most of you, I have been paying into Social Security ever since I started working. For me that was at the age of fourteen. I am 59 now and that means, they have been taking a portion of my income for forty-four years. If you are so inclined, you can figure out exactly what you have paid I over the years. I have looked at mine and I started paying in since 1973.

I personally have paid Forty, three thousand dollars with an equal contribution form my employers. If you ad interest to that for forty-four years, it is not a bad chunk of change. And many of us want to know where that money is, and we all know that congress has decided that they could spend some of that money supporting “non-citizens” however you are not supposed to know this.

Guess what you are supporting “non-citizens” and if that were not the case why would they require the following provision and I quote.

“In most cases, we stop payments to noncitizens after they are outside the United States for six calendar months in a row. If we stop your payments, we will not start them again until you return to the United States and remain for a full calendar month. We may
continue to pay benefits to noncitizens outside of the United States if they meet certain conditions.

Additionally, if you are in an SSA-restricted country, we can only send payment to you under restricted conditions if you qualify for an exception. Use our Payments Abroad Screening Tool to find out if you can continue to get benefits while outside the United States.”

I copied that provision directly from the Social Security web site, it took less than three minutes to find it. Now if the “non-citizen” put nothing in, why are they collecting anything at all.

Who decided to give your money away to people that never paid in a dime? And if this is not enough to infuriate you perhaps this is, again I have taken this directly from the Social Security Website.

Many noncitizens living in the U.S. can get Social Security benefits

Being a U.S. citizen isn't a requirement for receiving Social Security. According to the Social Security Administration, noncitizens who are "lawfully in the United States and meet all eligibility requirements" can get benefits. That includes not only those admitted for permanent residence under the Immigration and Nationality Act, but also those who qualify under provisions for family unity and for immediate relatives to live within the U.S. as well.

Even noncitizens who leave the U.S. can still get Social Security benefits under certain circumstances

Typically, the SSA stops making payments to noncitizens after they have remained outside the U.S. for six months in a row. In order to restart those payments, though, all you have to do is return to the U.S. for a full calendar month.

Moreover, the U.S. has international agreements with a number of countries under which noncitizens can keep getting Social Security even if they live abroad permanently. Most of the countries covered under those provisions are in Europe, but others include Australia, Canada, Japan, Chile, and South Korea. For more information on particular countries, take a look at this SSA website for specifics.

As for me, I have had some very serious health issues as of late, and I have been treated like a thief by the Social Security Administration. They are late, on a regular basis. Deductions taken out long before you are notified. They decide how much money you need to live on. And without missing a beat will tell you to sell any assets “they”
consider to be non-essential.

It is time to stand up to a system that considers us inconsequential and we pay them to do this. Remember, of the people by the people and for the people.

Are you pissed yet? If so and I hope you are, contact your congressman and Local Senator, this must stop.

States With Lower Taxes on Business and Personal Income Have Higher Economic Growth

Americans are moving from high-tax states to those with no taxes and less spending

States with lower taxes on businesses and personal income have higher economic growth, according to an economist at the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Jonathan Williams, an economist at the council, spoke at an event on the Hill Monday and used two states, Kansas and North Carolina, to illustrate how raising and cutting taxes can affect the local state economy in either a positive or negative way.

Williams explained that while many try to suggest Kansas's economic difficulty has been due to tax cuts they have implemented in the past, the data suggest otherwise.

"Based on our ranking of rich states, poor states of economic competitiveness, Kansas started out about 10 years ago at 29th in America," Williams explained. "After tax reform, about 2013, it bolted up to number 11."

Additionally, data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis find that from 2012 to 2015 Kansas had annualized job growth of 1.3 percent per 10,000 residents.


Fifth SEIU Official Ousted After Being Accused of Sexual Assault

Another official at the Service Employees International Union has been ousted following accusations of sexual assault.

Pedro Malave was first fired from a local Boston-area SEIU chapter in 2014, only to be later rehired at two other local chapters in California, the labor website Payday Report reported last week. Politico‘s Morning Shift newsletter flagged the report on Monday and confirmed that the locals dismissed Malave after they learned of his past alleged conduct.

In the summer of 2014, the Boston-area 32BJ SEIU Local 615 investigated Malave, then the assistant director, after a co-worker, Daria Alladio, accused him of sexual assault. She alleged that, in 2008, Malave stuck his hand up her skirt and "put his hand in-between her butt cheeks," according to the Payday Report..


U.S. Strikes Taliban Drug Facilities in Strategy Shift to Target Revenue Sources

U.S. and Afghan forces have conducted more than two-dozen joint airstrikes against opium production facilities in Afghanistan under a new campaign to target Taliban financing, the top U.S. general in the country said Monday.

Army Gen. John Nicholson said the Sunday night assaults against drug labs in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province will continue in the coming days. Nicholson said the Taliban makes at least $200 million a year through opium production.

The Pentagon aired videos at a press conference of the raids involving American B-52s and an F-22 bomber annihilating insurgent opium factories.

Why Is The DOJ Downplaying Reports Of Proof Linking Obama And Clinton To Russian Corruption

Following the release of the identity of the FBI informant, Justice Department officials in recent days said that informant William Campbell’s prior work won’t shed much light on the U.S. government’s controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russia’s purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets.

However, The Hill's John Solomon has reviewed 1000s of new memos from an FBI informant that clearly show illegal activity surrounding a Russian plot to corner the American uranium market, ranging from corruption inside a U.S. nuclear transport company to Obama administration approvals that let Moscow buy and sell more atomic fuels.

FBI informant Campbell, acting as a consultant trying to help Rosatom overcome political opposition to the Uranium One deal, gathered evidence for six years, and, according to the more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation, there are a number of evidenciary links betweeen corrupt Russians, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton...


Wait….What? Op-Ed Claims Only White People Have Access To Going Outdoors

Going outside and enjoying time in the outdoors is now white supremacy. Yes, you heard that correctly, because apparently minorities don’t have access to nature the same way white people do.

A student (naturally) at Pitzer College in California has declared that “people of color have been denied access to the outdoors” in an op-ed for her school’s newspaper.

I can’t believe I’m typing these words.

The student directed her ire at two of the college’s nature groups, claiming that “racial boundaries” keep minority students from feeling “at ease” in the outdoors.

“Both clubs claim to be accessible,” he writes. “While trips are open to any student wanting to go, not everyone feels the same ease in entering the outdoors. This discomfort is unfortunately caused by existing racial boundaries.”

It’s worth noting that the person who wrote this is white, and claims that the term “outdoorsy” makes people think of white men. Now I might be in that particular minority here, but when I hear the term “outdoorsy” I cringe because it doesn’t sound like it should be a word, but then I think of my mother who has always been interested in that kind of thing. Gardening, going to the mountains, seeing all of nature. I don’t think of some random white guy with a backpack and a tent. That’s just weird.

Months Ago, Kathy Griffin Posed With a ‘Beheaded’ Trump & Now She’s Crying About the Consequences

Girl, you make it really hard to have any sympathy for you when you literally brought this on yourself. It’s not like nobody will hire you because some jealous ex-boyfriend leaked your nudes, you did this yourself. (Also if anyone out there is listening, I want all devices containing Kathy Griffin nude photos to suddenly stop working and become unrecoverable. Amen.)

Griffin is now complaining because she doesn’t have any paid work lined up for the future. Something to do with a bloody President’s head and the people of America not standing for that kind of rhetoric. You know, stupid stuff.


Governor Larry Hogan Announces Construction Start for the Final Phase of US 113 Widening

Long-Awaited Project Will Enhance Safety and Ease Congestion in Worcester County

Governor Larry Hogan today announced the start of construction on the final phase of widening US 113 (Worcester Highway). This $82.3 million congestion relief project widens US 113 from two lanes to four lanes with a median from MD 365 (Public Landing Road) to Five Mile Branch Road. Governor Hogan added the funding for Worcester County’s top transportation priority in June 2015 as part of the administration’s additional $2 billion investment in roads and bridges across the state.

“This project has been an ongoing priority for thousands of residents and travelers for decades,” said Governor Hogan. “With its completion, this highway will be safer for residents and visitors, encourage tourism, and support economic development not only in Worcester County, but across our entire state. Our administration remains fully committed to bringing congestion relief to all of Maryland.”

Phase Four improvements include a four-lane divided highway with 12-foot lanes and modifying access for residential and commercial properties with service roads, constructing a new bridge over Purnell Branch, stormwater management, and a center median.

This final phase of the dualization of US 113 is a design-build project where the state completes the initial project design and a private sector team is procured to finalize the design and construct the project. The Design-Build Team, Wallace Montgomery and Allan Myers, was awarded the $51.4 million project. The state used an innovative procurement approach that considered price, time, and impacts to the public in award of the project. As a result, the Design-Build Team has committed to completing the project six months sooner and at nearly $2 million less than estimated. The new lanes will open to traffic on the 4.3-mile section in fall 2019, with disincentives to the contractor per day beyond.

Hillary is toast: Scandals finally catch up with Clintons

Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat’s mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc.

Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion. While it is refreshing to consider the landscape unadorned by Clintons, Republicans will miss her. Only Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have contributed as generously to GOP fund-raising efforts in recent years, or so energized voters.

Mrs. Clinton is finally being held to account, at least in the court of public opinion, where it may matter most. As charges of sexual aggression swirl around prominent figures on the left and right, Bill Clinton’s gross and possibly criminal behavior is getting a second look. New York’s junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand took the revisionism to a whole new level when she told the New York Times that President Clinton should have stepped down when his sexual relationship with 22-year old staffer Monica Lewinsky came to light.



The utter hypocrisy that is being demonstrated in the Bundy Ranch trial by those who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution from both foreign and domestic enemies is quite telling as to the level of corruption we are seeing in our land today. Furthermore, it is demonstrating that many of those who have taken that oath not only don’t know what the Constitution says, but also have become the very domestic enemies they proclaim to oppose because of their ignorance.

First, take this update from Guerilla Media Network’s Deb Jordan.

“Judge Gloria Navarro presiding over USA vs Cliven Bundy says, if the Prosecution does not call Daniel P. Love to the stand she is leaning heavily toward not allowing the defense to call him to the stand either,” Jordan wrote. “In a shocking statement made outside the earshot of the Jury this past Friday, Navarro said that she has no obligation to allow the defense to call the former Special Agent in Charge of the Bundy cattle impoundment to the stand for the purpose of impeaching his testimony to the grand jury.”


Newly surfaced pics show Al Franken grabbing Arianna Huffington’s breasts and butt

Newly revealed pictures show Sen. Al Franken grabbing self-described feminist Arianna Huffington on her bottom and breasts.

The never-before-published images, taken for a magazine in 2000 and obtained exclusively by The Post, include a number of frames showing the former “Saturday Night Live” star grabbing the media mogul’s buttocks as they pose back to back.

An even more shocking snap shows the pair posing on a bed, with Franken cupping Huffington’s breast with one hand.
“Franken was clowning around, but it really isn’t funny,” said a source from the shoot. “That’s his tactic, pretend like it’s all a big joke. Arianna was pushing his hands away. He was groping her. There was some fun attached to it, but she wasn’t enjoying it. She definitely told him to stop and pushed him away.”


John Rosemond: Your kids should not be the most important

I recently asked a married couple who have three kids, none of whom are yet teens, “Who are the most important people in your family?”

Like all good moms and dads of this brave new millennium, they answered, “Our kids!”

“Why?” I then asked. “What is it about your kids that gives them that status?” And like all good moms and dads of this brave new millennium, they couldn't answer the question other than to fumble with appeals to emotion.

So, I answered the question for them: “There is no reasonable thing that gives your children that status.”

I went on to point out that many—if not most—of the problems they're having with their kids—typical stuff, these days—are the result of treating their children as if they, their marriage, and their family exist because of the kids when it is, in fact, the other way around. Their kids exist because of them and their marriage and thrive because the parents have created a stable family.


Bill Clinton Still Silent About Flights On Pedophile’s Sex Plane

Former President Bill Clinton continues to remain silent about the 26 flights he took aboard convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express,” which reportedly offered underage girls to passengers to rape.

Fox News wrote in 2016 that the Lolita Express, a Boeing 727 jet, was “reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.”

Clinton flew on some trips where the flight logs showed only the first names of female passengers.

The Daily Caller News Foundation contacted the Clinton Presidential Library last week to obtain information about the former president’s relationship with billionaire Epstein, who in 2008 was convicted of soliciting sex from underage girls as young as 14.

Poll: Majority of LGBTQ Americans Report Harassment, Violence Based On Identity

More than half of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Americans say they have experienced violence, threats or harassment because of their sexuality or gender identity, according to new poll results being released Tuesday by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
"There are very few nationally representative polls of LGBTQ people, and even fewer that ask about LGBTQ people's personal experiences of discrimination," says Logan Casey, deputy director of the survey and research associate in public opinion at the Harvard Chan School. "This report confirms the extraordinarily high levels of violence and harassment in LGBTQ people's lives."


Citizen of the Year?

'Proof of Citizenship' Voting Laws May Surge Under Trump

Emboldened both by President Donald Trump’s claim that millions of noncitizens voted in 2016 and by his creation of a panel to investigate the alleged fraud, lawmakers in several states want to require people registering to vote to provide proof of their citizenship – even though federal registration forms don’t require it.

This year at least four states – Kansas, Maryland, Texas and Virginia – considered proof of citizenship measures, according to the Brennan Center for Justice. That means residents must provide documentation such as a passport or birth certificate when registering to vote.

But that gets confusing. In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states may not require proof of citizenship for those who use the federal registration form, which states are required to accept. It didn’t bar them from requiring such documents for state elections, so states can set up a dual registration system—in which voters who lack proof of citizenship can register and vote in only federal elections.


Public Defenders Fight Back Against Budget Cuts, Growing Caseloads

Public defenders have complained for decades they’ve got too many cases and not enough money — or time — to do their clients justice.

Now, more public defense advocates are suing states for more funding. Overwhelmed public defenders also are increasingly trying other tactics: refusing to take on new cases, raising money through crowdfunding, even trying to assign a case to a sitting governor.

“It’s been a huge national failure,” said William Leahy, New York’s chief public defender, of the whole public defense system, which provides legal representation for poor people charged with more serious crimes, a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

With declining budgets and crushing caseloads, juggling clients has become a Sisyphean task, public defenders say. In New Orleans, for example, 60 public defenders manage roughly 20,000 cases a year. And overburdened public defenders, they argue, can’t mount a vigorous defense for their clients.

Race for 2020 Democratic nomination already getting started in New Hampshire

HOLLIS, NH – Not one year into the Trump administration, New Hampshire already is buzzing with the anticipation of 2020 and playing host to an early screen test for a parade of potential and declared White House hopefuls.

The state Democratic Party’s annual Kennedy-Clinton fall fundraising gala – held on a cold and windy November night this past Friday, in part to celebrate their 2017 victories and look ahead to the midterms – featured two headliners with an eye on the next presidential race.

Maryland Rep. John Delaney, who over the summer launched a stunningly early 2020 presidential campaign, told the audience that “hyper partisan politics is tearing our country apart.”

The message from the three-term congressman was “what we really need a president to do is to bring us together, to restore civility in politics and respect in public service.”

Eight-term Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, also a potential contender for the next Democratic presidential nomination, preached to the crowd that “the Democratic Party’s got to be the party that builds the new system.”

“We need to build systems that put people first,” he added.

Democrats' depravity laid bare by Bill Clinton

With profiles in courage like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in powerful positions of authority around here, is it any wonder that men and women of America are living in such respectful bliss and harmony with one another?

Nearly thirty years after credible and even verified reports of grand Democrat poobah Bill Clinton molesting women and so much worse, Mrs. Gillibrand has finally decided the monster should have been thrown out of the White House for his lecherous assaults.

“Yes, I think that is the appropriate response,” she said when pressed about whether Mr. Clinton should have been hounded from office.

In other words, Ken Starr and the Republicans of the 1990s were exactly right.

Then Mrs. Gillibrand offered a truly astonishing defense of the most famous rapist in American politics.

Why People Will Happily Line Up To Be Microchipped Like Dogs

So…some people actually want to be microchipped like a dog. They’re lining up for it. They’re having parties to get it done. It if isn’t available to them, they’re totally bummed out.

I’m not even going to venture into the religious aspect of having a microchip inserted into a human being. Let’s just talk about the secular ramifications.

Certain folks won’t be happy until everyone has a computer chip implanted in them. Here’s how this could go.
Initially, it would be the sheep who blindly desire to be chipped for their own “convenience” leading the way.
Then, it would become remarkably inconvenient not to be chipped – sort of like it’s nearly impossible to not have a bank account these days.
Then, the last holdouts could be forcibly chipped by law.

Read on, because I could not make this stuff up.


Hillary Says The Dumbest Thing Ever About Bill Clinton’s Problems In White House

Hold on to your hats, ladies and gentlemen, because we’re about to take a long ride on a roller coaster of stupidity and you’re going to want to be here for every second of it.

Hillary Clinton tried to brag about her husband and his accomplishments while in the White House. She gave her little speech at the Clinton Presidential Center as a way to mark the 25th anniversary of Bill’s first election. (Is that pathetic or is it just me?)

And then, just when you thought that the Clinton’s couldn’t be anymore tone deaf, Hillary said something so outrageously stupid that I was rendered speechless for a good 20 minutes after reading it. Seriously, I was just making grunting and groaning noises and I tried desperately to maintain my grasp on the English language. I was frightened that her stupid may have been contagious and I caught it by reading this story.


Sam’s Club Customer Plays the Piano and Worship Session Breaks Out

On November 10, a Sam’s Club in Dothan, AL, went from being just a store, to being a place of worship. Michelle Holland Conner, who experienced it, said “Sometimes you need a little church. Even if it’s in Sam’s Club.” She later posted the wonderful video of the event on Facebook.

It all started when a group of local Christian musicians began testing out a keyboard. The group included Slade Alday and his wife Danielle. He was asked about the inspirational event.

“It was impromptu,” he said. Alday is a member of the Sons of Jubal, a Baptist chorus.

He continued, “The Holy Spirit just showed up in a mighty way. In this time when people can’t get along for various reasons we were all together. We were just singing praises to God.”

Ms. Conner’s video shows Mr. Alday singing, while Joy Buczek played “Our God is Awesome” on a keyboard.

Alday continued, “When we were walking around we turned the corner and there were these keyboards. Like any curious musician, Joy wanted to mess around on them and started playing some song. We started singing in our little group and began having a worship time. Our eyes were closed, so we didn’t really know how many people had joined in before I looked around.”

Alday said, “I heard people saying ‘Amen.’ So, I turned around and they had their hands raised; some were crying. It was a beautiful moment.”


Videos Reveal A Close, Gory View Of Police Dog Bites

Donald W. Cook is a Los Angeles attorney with decades of experience bringing lawsuits over police dog bites — and mostly losing. He blames what he calls "The Rin Tin Tin Effect" — juries think of police dogs as noble, and have trouble visualizing how violent they can be during an arrest.

"[Police] use terms like 'apprehend' and 'restrain,' to try to portray it as a very antiseptic event," Cook says. "But you look at the video and the dog is chewing away on his leg and mutilating him."

Cook says the proliferation of smart phones and body cameras is capturing a reality that used to be lost on juries. "If it's a good video, it makes a case much easier to prevail on," he says.

The latest high-definition body cameras worn by police provide especially clear views. Cook collects these videos on his computer, and what strikes him is the degree of bloody violence the dogs can inflict.


"Beyond Resistance" - Soros, Pelosi Headline Left's Biggest Dark Money Conference

A secretive three-day conference where big money liberal donors are plotting the next steps of the "resistance" will be headlined by Friday speeches by billionaire George Soros and Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, according to internal documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Democracy Alliance, a donor club of deep-pocketed liberal donors that each pledge to direct hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing groups, descended on California's posh La Costa Resort on Wednesday morning for its fall donor summit. The group continued its tradition of secrecy, promising all members and guests of the summit their participation would "remain confidential."

The first page of the conference agenda, which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and can be viewed in its entirety below, lays out "participation guidelines," explaining that the Democracy Alliance is a "safe place" for donors and activists to meet.

Guests are instructed not to share members' names with the press and not to post to any social media sites, to contact Democracy Alliance if "the media or a blogger" contacts them, and to "refrain from leaving sensitive materials out where others may find them."

This latter directive was ignored.

The agenda for the meeting, titled "Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future," lays out three full days of events culminating in a Friday night dinner headlined by Pelosi.

Bankrupt Toys R Us want to pay $16M in Executive Bonuses

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Toys "R" Us has asked the bankruptcy court for permission to pay $16 million in bonuses to its top executives if the company is able to hit some financial targets during the upcoming holiday shopping season.

Toys "R" Us filed for bankruptcy in September, and now must get court approval for many of its basic business decisions. The court will have the final say on its incentive plan.

In the filing made with the court Wednesday the company argues the bonuses are necessary to get executives to perform at a high level during its bankruptcy.

"It is the [company's] employees — and more particularly the senior management team — that must execute at this critical juncture and provide the foundation for a successful turnaround," it said in the filing.

Among the 17 executives who would get payments is chairman and CEO David Brandon, who joined the company in 2015.


Gunmaker Remington faces default as Americans buy fewer firearms

Remington Outdoor, the second-largest U.S. gunmaker has suffered a “rapid” and “sharp” deterioration in sales and a similar drop in profits since January, and faces “continued softness in consumer demand for firearms,” credit analysts at Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings said in a report today.

S&P as a result has cut the company’s corporate credit rating — already at a junk-bond-level CCC+ — two full notches, to CCC-, a move likely to make the company’s high-yield debt less attractive to investors and lenders, and force Remington to pay more in interest. The company could face a change in control, bankruptcy, or default on its debt by next year.

A backlog of unsold, unwanted firearms will force Remington to operate at a loss and “pressure the company’s sales and profitability at least through early 2018, resulting in insufficient cash flow for debt service and fixed charges,” unless Remington gives up cash to pay for ongoing operations, S&P adds.


Empty Seats Fill Stadiums Everywhere

With the NFL’s Week 11 action wrapping up, it quickly became clear that football fans had found other things to do as thousands of empty seats could be seen in stadiums from coast to coast.

With TV ratings off nearly 20 percent over all and the networks already known to have lost up to $500 million in ad revenue, it is becoming clear that last year’s 12 percent decline wasn’t because of the raucous political season, a claim that served as the excuse for the 2016 season’s ratings loss.

The ratings slide is reflected in the skimpy attendance at the stadiums, too, with Week 11 photos showing that there are still empty seats galore.

To cite just a few:


The National Republican Party

After Judge Roy Moore won the Alabama Republican senatorial primary election a few weeks ago, I wrote this:

You can bet that the establishment is not finished trying to destroy Roy Moore—not by any stretch of the imagination. When Trump stumped for Luther Strange last week, he said that Judge Moore would have a hard time winning the general election. He said that because he knows that not only will Roy Moore have to defeat the Democrat establishment, he will have to again defeat the Republican establishment. So, Roy’s fight is far from over.

Boy, were those words an understatement! After forty years in public office; after being investigated more times than probably any man in America; after being removed from office twice for not caving in to unconstitutional judicial rulings; after taking on the President of the United States Donald Trump, the Vice President of the United States Mike Pence, the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and the entire media and political establishments in New York and Washington, D.C.; and after having over $30 million spent against him by the Republican establishment AND WINNING—and just four weeks away from the most important senatorial election in modern American history—suddenly several women come out of nowhere to accuse Roy Moore of sexual improprieties from some forty years ago.


Wisconsin College Democrats leader resigns after tweeting, 'I f--ing hate white men'

An executive board member of the College Democrats of Wisconsin has resigned amid backlash over a derogatory tweet about white men.

Sarah Semrad, a junior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and vice chair of the statewide College Democratsorganization, reportedly tweeted last week from her now-deleted Twitter account: “I f—ing hate white men.”

Ms. Semrad also celebrated tearing down flyers at her campus for Christian-based pregnancy counseling, the La Crosse Tribune reported. The tweets apparently caught the attention of conservative Milwaukee radio talk show host Mark Belling.

“My new bit is tearing down all the pro life Christian pregnancy resource center fliers that they put up around campus to try & trick people,” Ms. Semrad wrote, according to screenshots shared by Mr. Belling.

A spokesperson for the College Democrats of Wisconsin told Campus Reform that Ms. Semrad had stepped down as vice chair as of Tuesday.


This Is What Anguish Looks Like: Victims of Black-on-White Violence

Budding Hollywood actresses do not have to rely on semi-naked fat dudes in expensive hotels for acting tips. Not anymore.

Real-life examples of real-life emotions such as despair, abandonment, anguish, and betrayal are easy to find if you know where to look – e.g., local stories of black-on-white violence.

Let's start with some backstory in Chicago. During last year's election for the Chicago version of states attorney, Kim Foxx was not hiding anything. With loads of cash from George Soros and lots of support from Black Lives Matter, she bragged about how, under her watch, she was going to stop over-policing, halt mass incarceration, and begin a new era of arresting fewer black people in Chicago.

Because everyone knows that cops are always picking on black people for no reason whatsoever.

The new D.A. is as good as her word. In the latest example, Chicago has seen over 700 carjackings this year – almost all of them done by the fellas.


U.S. Contemplated Soviet False Flag

The U.S. government considered manufacturing or obtaining Soviet aircraft in order to launch an attack on American or friendly bases that could then provide an excuse for war, according to newly released documents.

The documents are part of an October release of thousands of formerly classified files related to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It describes a March 22, 1962 meeting that discussed “the question raised by the attorney general on the possibility of U.S. manufacture or acquisition of Soviet aircraft.”

The meeting was held by the “Special Group (Augmented),” which according to an encyclopedia on the Central Intelligence Agency, included Attorney General Robert Kennedy, CIA Director John McCone, National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lyman Lemnitzer. And while not members, President Kennedy and Secretary of State Dean Rusk would attend meetings.

The previously top secret documents listed three reasons for obtaining or manufacturing the aircraft.


Married teacher and JV cheerleading coach, 23, arrested for sex affair with teen boy student

A married North Carolina teacher and junior varsity cheerleading coach was arrested Wednesday after allegedly having a sexual relationship with a male student.

Katherine Ross Ridenhour, 23, an educator at Cox Mill High School in Concord, N.C., allegedly had a consensual relationship with a 17-year-old male student, FOX46 reported.

The Concord Police Department said Ridenhour and the student had “inappropriate contact” several times during the last month and a half at the school, FOX46 reported.


Breaking News: President Trump defended Roy Moore

President Trump defended Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate, who is accused of sexual misconduct with minors: "He totally denies it"

President Trump defended Roy S. Moore, the Alabama Republican Senate candidate who is accused of sexual misconduct with minors, on Tuesday.
“If you look at what is really going on, and you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it,” Mr. Trump said.

FBI Informant Has Video Of Russian Agents With Briefcases Of Bribe Money In Clinton-Uranium Scandal

An undercover FBI informant in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former AG Loretta Lynch, claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal – according to The Hill investigative journalist John Solomon and Circa‘s Sara Carter.

The informant, whose identity was revealed by Reuters as William D. Campbell, will testify before congress next week after the NDA which carried the threat of prison time was lifted. Campbell, originally misidentifed by Reuters as a lobbyist is actually a nuclear industry consultant who is currently battling cancer.

As previously reported, Campbell was deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry where he gathered extensive evidence of a racketeering scheme involving bribes and kickbacks.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. –The Hill

Campbell’s attorney, former Regan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing, previously told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”


New Fed Chief Powell - A “Swamp Critter Extraordinaire”

Just like many of his other campaign promises, Trump isn't doing a great job of draining the swamp. His nominee for Fed Chair is Jerome Powell.

Powell is a 'swamp critter extraordinaire' so declared by Bill Bonner last week. We're inclined to agree. Name-calling is poor sportsmanship when it comes to politics, but hey, Trump started it.

When Trump traveled around the United States campaigning for the most privileged position in the country he lashed out at the seemingly abstract promise to 'Drain the Swamp' at every opportunity. He used it to criticise anything he didn't like about the status-quo.

He made the 'swamp critters' the fall-guys for every hardship Americans were facing. In many ways he was right.

Yet as has been the case throughout the last eleven months, Trump hasn't done a great job of turning rhetoric into reality.


Trump: 'Hillary, get on with your life'

President Trump on Saturday returned to attacking his favorite target: Hillary Clinton, the election foe he vanquished more than a year ago.

“Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time,” the commander in chief tweeted.

Trump continued: “She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!”

It wasn’t clear what, exactly, Trump was responding to. But Clinton recently suggested to Mother Jones that Russian government interference undermined the “legitimacy” of Trump’s win.

“There are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” the 2016 Democratic nominee said in the interview, published this week. “And we don’t have a method for contesting that in our system. That’s why I’ve long advocated for an independent commission to get to the bottom of what happened.”

She added: “Because, look, this is the first time we’ve ever been attacked by a foreign adversary, and then they suffer no real consequences.”


Hillary Clinton, Who Colluded With The Russians, Questions The Legitimacy Of The 2016 Elections Because….Russia

Some of the reasons cited by Clinton are literally exactly what she and her campaign actually carried out themselves!

Failed former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is now directly questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 elections, citing the discredited deep state narrative that Donald Trump worked with the Russians as one of her reasons despite the fact that her own campaign colluded with “Russian sources” to spread disinformation about President Trump through what would eventually become known as the “Trump dossier.”

Clinton made the comments in a wide ranging interview with the always friendly Mother Jones Senior Reporter Ari Berman where she stated that there are many questions about the actual legitimacy of the last presidential election in which she lost.

During the interview Berman asked Clinton, “So between the Republican voter suppression you talked about and Russian interference, do you think it was a legitimate election?”


Joy Everingham becomes U.K. Methodist Church's first transgender minister

Joy Everingham, a chaplain at the University of Kent Canterbury, has two sons and a wife named Ruth. The 46-year-old minister also is undergoing a transitioning process that involves hormone therapy and wearing women’s clothing full-time — all approved by church leaders.

“People sat down and started reading [my letter on transition], and then I could see them looking up and around,” the minister said, Kent Online reported Friday. “I was scared to death, but people kept coming up to me and saying ‘well done.’ A couple of people didn’t speak to me for a bit, but they had to work it out for themselves. I was expecting it to be a long hard trek to justify who I was, but it’s not been like that.”

The decision was 22 years in the making, which included years leading a double-life, a gender dysphoria diagnosis by health care professionals, and battles with depression.

“I tried running away from it, but I couldn’t resist it any longer,” the chaplain told the newspaper. “Sometimes I felt like God had cursed me, but I had to trust in a God that loves me, whatever I am.”


Large U.S. farm study finds no cancer link to Monsanto weedkiller

LONDON (Reuters) - A large long-term study on the use of the big-selling weedkiller glyphosate by agricultural workers in the United States has found no firm link between exposure to the pesticide and cancer, scientists said on Thursday.

Published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI), the study found there was no association between glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's popular herbicide RoundUp, "and any solid tumors or lymphoid malignancies overall, including non-Hogkin Lymphoma (NHL) and its subtypes".

It said there was "some evidence of increased risk of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) among the highest exposed group", but added this association was "not statistically significant".

The findings are likely to impact legal proceedings in the United States against Monsanto, in which more than 180 plaintiffs are claiming exposure to RoundUp gave them cancer - allegations that Monsanto denies.


College fans erupt after basketball player shoots hoops during national anthem

Jim Howard, of Garden City, Kansas is a red-blooded, American patriot and a faithful supporter of the athletic program at the local community college.

For 32 years he’s volunteered with the booster club – keeping scorebooks, holding fundraisers, running the chain gang for football – and even providing a place for players to have a Thanksgiving meal.

He was in the stands on Nov. 1 for the season-opener of the Garden City Broncbusters basketball team. And when the announcer asked everyone to stand for the national anthem, he dutifully joined the crowd and stood at attention.

That’s when he noticed a lone player seated on a bench at courtside – Rasool Samir, a 19-year-old Muslim red-shirt.


Time To Crush The RUMOR About WiHi Today

Very early this morning I had received a message telling me kids were spreading the word that someone on social media stated a student was going to come into WiHi with a gun and start shooting up the place. 

I immediately contacted the Sheriff's Office in which I was assured that they were aware of the RUMOR and they were proactive in sending in multiple Deputies just to comfort parents and students. NOTHING ever happened.

I've been fielding phone calls from parents all morning and while I strongly felt I needed to stay away from publishing anything about this as I did NOT want to scare parents and students about something that just wasn't true.

Because I continue to receive phone calls and since we're getting close to the end of the day for students I just wanted to assure everyone it was just a rumor. I'll add, parents who contacted WiHi about this were told they could come in and pick up their child/children. 

Social Media has become one of the top problems for schools across the nation. The cool part is this though. The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office was well aware of this very early this morning and were prepared for any questionable situations. Give credit where credit is due. 

Does Your Age, Sex, and Location Make You a Target for Cybercrime this Cyber Monday?

Do you know how likely you are to become a victim of internet crime, fraud, and identity theft based on your age, sex, and location? With Cyber Monday just around the corner, you need to be aware.

The United States loves to shop online. According to a recent study, ecommerce is growing 23 percent year-over-year, and a whopping 80% percent of Americans with an internet connection have made an online purchase in the last month.

Since 2016’s Cyber Monday was the biggest shopping day in the history of U.S. e-commerce —with $3.39 billion spent online—2017 is bound to be one for the record books. Unfortunately for bargain hunters, malicious attacks against consumers increase almost 40% on Cyber Monday. To help you understand your risk of being affected by cybercrime while shopping for gifts and deals, we analyzed cybercrimes that were reported to the FBI and CSN in 2015 and 2016—concentrating on internet crime, fraud, and identity theft. Based on reported complaints per 100,000 people, we were able to reveal the most and least affected states in the country for total cybercrime victims, the most victimized sex and age, and how much money people lose on average in each attack. We hope that this will inspire you to take extra precautions to protect yourself if you fall into one of these categories. For more on the methodology, please scroll to the end of this piece.
State By State Ranking of Cybercrime—From Most to Least in the Country

States are ranked from most to least total victims of cybercrime—by equally weighing the total number of internet crime victims (per 100,000 people), fraud victims (per 100,000 people), identity theft victims (per 100,000 people), average dollar loss per victim of internet crime, and average dollar loss per victim of fraud.

All ranking information is based on 2016 data from the FBI’s IC3 and CSN reporting databases. It’s important to note that the average dollar loss per victim of identity theft was not available from CSN, so this was not included in the ranking system. Also, states which tied were assigned the same rank.


Whirlpool enlists government to help avoid competing and innovating

On Thursday, October 19, the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) held a hearing to determine what actions should be taken to “remedy” supposed damage done to Whirlpool’s washing machine business by foreign competitors LG and Samsung.

The hearing came on the heels of an ITC ruling that Whirlpool suffered injury from increased imports of LG and Samsung residential washing machines. If this disastrous ruling is upheld, consumers and potentially taxpayers will have to bear the burden of higher costs and lower quality.

During testimony, Whirlpool’s attorney recommended levying a 50 percent import tariff on washing machines from LG and Samsung – which somefear would discourage both companies from carrying out their direct foreign investment plans that have been in the works for years.

The ITC “global safeguard” trade case, under Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974, is a rarely used and deeply flawed provision and statute. Contrary to misinformation spread by Whirlpool and its advocates, safeguard cases have nothing to do with illicit or legitimate anti-competitive practices. In fact, these maneuvers amount to little more than crony capitalism and protectionism designed to buoy a struggling domestic industry. Never has Section 201 been used – nor was it intended – to target specific competitors as the Whirlpool petition does.


Breaking News: Net neutrality is being repealed. The FCC decision would allow internet providers to charge consumers more and limit their content choices.

The Federal Communications Commission announced on Tuesday that it planned to dismantle landmark regulations that ensure equal access to the internet, clearing the way for companies to charge more and block access to some websites.
The proposal, put forward by the F.C.C. chairman, Ajit Pai, is a sweeping repeal of rules put in place by the Obama administration that prohibited high-speed internet service providers from blocking or slowing down the delivery websites, or charging extra fees for the best quality of streaming and other internet services for their subscribers.

HuffPost: 'Joe Biden 2020 Is a Terrible Idea in a Post-Weinstein America'

Rumors are circulating about former Vice President “Uncle” Joe Biden’s potential run for president in 2020, and the HuffPost — a major news source for the left — has made a case against such a scenario, citing the potential for massive backlash in the wake of mounting allegations against men who behave inappropriately.

“From former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly to producer Harvey Weinstein to comedian Louis C.K., men are losing their jobs after years of having sexually harassed or assaulted women with impunity,” the HuffPost wrote. “Biden is the wrong guy to bear the standard of any party purporting to speak for the victims of unaccountable power.”

Biden, adoringly referred to as “Uncle Joe” by many Americans, has long been a champion of women’s rights. And while he may have good intentions, perception is reality.

On Tuesday, Biden said, “I’m not closing the door. I’ve been around too long, and I’m a great respecter of fate, but who knows what the situation is going to be a year and a half from now?”


The Great American Earthquake

Column: Can the foundations of our society hold?

"Who can deny that, in the United States today, as never before in its history, there is a vast unease about the prospects of the republic?"

So asked Irving Kristol in "Our Shaken Foundations," a 1968 essay for Fortunemagazine. Observing the student revolt, urban riots, increase in crime, and mass mobilizations against the war in Vietnam, Kristol acknowledged that Americans in the late 1960s were not the first people in history to worry about the instability of their society. Nor would they be the last. "The premonition of apocalypse springs eternal in the human breast." Every civilization undergoes recurrent cycles of anxiety and dislocation that eventually subside. "Somehow, the human race endures, life continues to yield its modest satisfactions; the world doesn't actually come to an end."

Yet, Kristol added, Americans do not live in "the world." They live in "a particular world; and history records many particular worlds that did indeed come to their ends—sometimes abruptly, more often slowly and insensibly, but always painfully for those who felt themselves part of what was being destroyed." The revolutions of 1968, he went on, may have been the beginning of another such painful transition.

Climate Alarmists Warn of Coming ‘Mass Extinction Event’: Don’t Worry, They’re Always Wrong

Scientists are once again sounding the alarm that humans are destroying the planet, and we're heading towards a "mass extinction event."

"We the undersigned, senior members of the world's scientific community, hereby warn all humanity of what lies ahead," wrote over 15,000 scientists from 184 countries—an irrelevant fact to make it sound like a consensus. "A great change in our stewardship of the earth and the life on it, is required, if vast human misery is to be avoided and our global home on this planet is not to be irretrievably mutilated."

Sounds dire. But don't worry, they're always wrong.

The group called their letter "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice." You might wonder why this is their second notice. What did they predict the first time?

As Investors Business Daily points out, the first notice, published in 1992, got everything wrong.


Deadline set for DOJ to release Lynch-Clinton tarmac-meeting docs

Clandestine conference happened while FBI probed Hillary over email

It happened on June 27, 2016, on the tarmac at the Phoenix airport. Bill Clinton was there on his plane, and then-U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch was there on hers.

They met, privately, without witnesses, except possibly Lynch’s husband.

What otherwise might have been a meaningless chat between two Washington power brokers, one out of office and another on her way out, was significant because Clinton’s wife, Hillary Clinton, a candidate for president, was under investigation by the FBI for allegedly mishandling classified information.

Then-FBI director James Comey took the unusual step only days after the meeting to publicly announce that while Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information while secretary of state, he had decided not to refer the case to the Loretta Lynch-led Justice Department for prosecution. Comey insisted no “reasonable” prosecutor in the nation would find the case worth prosecuting.


Ultimatum Given to One Fire Department

Lose the Confederate Flag or Lose Funding:

Commissioners in Montgomery County say they will restrict funding to a rural volunteer fire department that for months has refused to take down the Confederate flag that waves over it.

Debate over the Uwharrie Volunteer Fire Department's flag has simmered for months but complaints about it go back years, according to news accounts. The department, organized as a nonprofit corporation in 1983, occupies a privately-owned building but gets county money.

County commissioners had previously asked the department to remove the flag. This week they delivered an ultimatum.

Commissioners said by letter they would limit the fire department's funding until it removes the flag, paying only for fuel and maintenance of the two county-owned trucks that firefighters operate. The county will also replace the Uwharrie name on the trucks with new graphics "in support of the county's stance on equal rights and freedom of speech."


Couple beats restaurant owner over cold fried chicken

A Georgia couple has pleaded guilty to beating a restaurant owner and her teenage daughter after they complained of being sold cold fried chicken.

Nathaniel Smith, 45, and Latasha Smith, 28, entered guilty pleas on Friday to charges of aggravated assault and cruelty to children, according to The Florida Times-Union.

Surveillance captured Latasha beating Jeanette Norris, the owner of the Qwik Chick, in Baxley, on June 22 because the couple claimed their food was cold and they didn't have enough fries.

When Norris's 15-year-old daughter got out of a vehicle to help her mother, Nathaniel is seen punching her in the face, sending her flying backwards.

Norris suffered a broken nose and her daughter was treated for a concussion.

Why Oswald Chambers and his incredible ‘My Utmost for His Highest’ is still a guide for today

To Scottish preacher Oswald Chambers, the word “tweet” described the sounds bird make. Having died a century ago, he knew nothing of Facebook, Instagram, or our other modern forms of communication. His world differed dramatically from ours.

So what could Chambers possibly say to us today about social media where religious, political, and lifestyle opinions are regularly posted to highlight our differences and often lead to anger and angst?

I suggest that Chambers’ approach to belief and the way we express our belief is a helpful example to the divided, noisy, uptight world in which we live.

Oswald Chambers’ personal style is just one aspect of a legacy that is as powerful as it is unlikely. A book of his daily meditations, “My Utmost for His Highest,” has sold more than 13 million copies worldwide since 1927. It remains one of the most popular Christian devotionals even today.

Some four dozen books bear Chambers’ name, nearly all of them published posthumously from verbatim notes of his teaching that were captured by his stenographer wife. Chambers’ insights are treasured a hundred years after his death by Christians of many ages and backgrounds.

All of us, though, whatever our beliefs, might learn something from the man’s example.


Judge continues suit by black teacher punished after criticizing ‘white privilege’ lessons

ST. PAUL, Minn. – A U.S. District Judge refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a black teacher in the St. Paul school district who alleges administrators retaliated against him for criticizing the district’s ineffective, race-based school discipline policies.

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson denied a motion by St. Paul Public Schools to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Aaron Benner, a black former teacher at John A. Johnson Elementary, who sued the district in May after the St. Paul Department of Human Rights and Equal Economic Opportunity found probable cause the district violated his rights, the Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports.

Benner quit in August 2015 after a series of district investigations that coincided with him speaking out against the district’s race-based school discipline policies that he and other teachers claim are encouraging bad behavior, especially among black students.

The “restorative justice” discipline policies are a result of a push by the Obama administration to force school districts to address a disproportionate percentage of minority students suspended from school for bad behavior.

Instead of suspension, the “restorative justice” approach involves talking circles, counseling, and other ineffective solutions that result in unruly students sent back to class, where they continue to disrupt the education of the classmates.
