Police Issue Public Advisory for Hoax Calls to Day Care Facilities

The Delaware State Police and Newark Police Department, are issuing a public advisory regarding hoax phone calls which were made to two separate day care facilities in New Castle County.

Both incidents occurred on Monday, November 13, 2017, during the same approximate time frame, and involved day care facilities in Newark and Middletown. In each case an unknown male caller, who was calling from a blocked number, advised the day care staff that he had located a lost child, and that information in the child’s belongings, identified them as being under that facilities care. The caller, who refused to identify himself, attempted to obtain personal information, and was evasive when asked follow-up questions, before hanging up. In each case, the day care staff immediately contacted police to report the incident.

Subsequent investigations by both the Delaware State Police and Newark Police Department revealed that there were no reported abductions, missing persons or other related incidents that could deem the information provided in the calls to be credible.

This information is being provided for awareness purposes only and to dispel rumors that might circulate via social media or other means.

If anyone has information regarding these incidents they are asked to call Delaware State Police Troop 9 at 302-378-5749 or the Newark Police Department at 302-366-7111. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware crime stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or via the internet at

Advocates for military caregivers shift focus from awareness to action

WASHINGTON — Veterans advocates believe they have made impressive strides in recent years in raising awareness about the struggles of military caregivers. Now they’re shifting their focus to ways to fix them.

On Monday, officials from the Elizabeth Dole Foundation and Department of Veterans Affairs hosted their second annual Military Caregivers summit, announcing a series of new plans to better connect those families with support services.

That includes a new VA center of excellence for research on caregivers, development of a new care curriculum for doctors to more fully include caregivers, and building a “caregiver map” for community leaders and families in need of practical plans for outreach.


Pentagon may stop running stateside schools for military children

The Trump administration is considering a plan to end the military’s longtime operation of schools for military children on dozens of stateside military bases, part of a broader push to cut costs and reduce the size of the federal workforce, according to information obtained by Military Times.

The military currently operates 47 schools on military installations in seven states in the continental U.S., serving a total of about 20,000 students. The proposal, which has support from some parts of the Pentagon, would turn over operation of those schools to local school districts.

The proposed “divestiture” of Defense Department stateside schools would not impact the Defense Department-run schools overseas, according to officials familiar with the proposal but who were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.


Report: Strangled Green Beret may have discovered SEALs’ illicit cash scheme

Sources close to the investigation into a Green Beret’s death in Africa say the soldier may have discovered that two Navy SEALs, who have since been identified as “persons of interest” in the case, were allegedly stealing cash meant for their mission.

As investigators began to untangle what happened to Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar on June 4 in the embassy housing he shared with two SEALs and another Green Beret in Bamako, Mali, one early detail didn’t add up, according to a report in The Daily Beast.


College football player expelled after sucker-punching coach

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A Tennessee State University football player has been dismissed from the team and expelled from the school for hitting a coach.

TSU athletics director Teresa Phillips told The Tennessean that 22-year-old senior defensive end Latrelle Lee, of Dothan, Alabama, was kicked off the team and expelled Monday.

Videos show Lee hitting head strength coach T.J. Greenstone twice in the head, knocking him to the turf on the sideline during the Saturday night game against Southeast Missouri at Hale Stadium. Greenstone is charged with keeping players from getting too close to the sideline during games, to avoid a penalty. The Tigers’ offense was on the field at the time.

Lee was a criminal justice major who had started in two games this season. He didn’t play in Saturday’s game.


More Evidence the Paris Climate Accord Is a Farce

"Global commitments made in Paris in 2015 to reduce emissions are still not being matched by actions." Who woulda thunk it?

The Left preaches that the Paris climate accord is not just an obligatory moral endeavor — the world faces an imbroglio that requires frantic countermeasures if we expect to stave off the (alleged) apocalyptic consequences of man-made global warming. Conservatives have countered that argument partly by insisting that key foreign nations have zero interest in abiding by the rules. They rightly see the accord as a massive transfer of wealth. The underlying motivation of nations to participate is the cash flow they envision flowing from the top. It’s a great scheme — if they can make it work.

Unfortunately for them, the plan isn’t coming to fruition, at least not as intended. News broke last week that the U.S. represents literally the only nation not a signatory to the Paris climate accordfollowing Syria’s about-face. Ecofascists are furious, but the move was a sterling one, especially considering the evidence isn’t in their favor. According to a new report, the trend is already heading in the direction that conservatives warned it would. It’s been predicted that whatever positives the U.S. achieves in terms of limiting emissions output will be canceled out by other big polluters like China. New indications via the Global Carbon Project affirm this concern.


Lawsuit demands Donna Brazile tell all about Seth Rich shooting

'If this were a random murder,' why did she fear for her own life?

The Washington lawyer who’s been on the hunt for slain DNC staffer Seth Rich’s killer and is suing the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton for allegedly rigging the 2016 presidential primary against Bernie Sanders now is going after another high-powered Democrat: Donna Brazile.

Brazile knows the truth about Rich’s mysterious death, attorney and Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman contends.

As WND reported, Burkman filed a lawsuit on Oct. 18 against the Democratic National Committee and scandal-ridden twice-failed Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton in D.C. Superior Court.

The complaint is seeking financial compensation for Sanders’ supporters who contributed to the Vermont senator’s campaign by donating to the DNC. Burkman is also demanding the release of the DNC emaile server, which contained troves of Clinton campaign and DNC emails that were published by whistleblower organization WikiLeaks.


Ron Paul Urges More Tax Breaks For Education

Shutting down the Department of Education and returning control of the education dollar to the American people is the key to improving education. The best way to put the people in charge of education is by shutting down all unconstitutional bureaucracies, repealing the Sixteenth Amendment, and ending the Federal Reserve’s money monopoly.

Since Congress is unlikely to restore constitutional, limited government in the near future, supporters of quality education must advance policies aimed at giving Americans control over the education dollar so they can seek alternatives to the federally-controlled system. This is why I have always supported education tax credits and deductions.

When I was in Congress, I introduced legislation providing tax credits for contributions to education scholarship funds. These funds provide K-12 scholarships to low-income-family students whose parents cannot afford private schools. These scholarship funds allow these children to escape government schools that have been ruined by federal “reforms” like No Child Left Behind and Common Core, as well as mandates such as the ones dictating what can be served in school cafeterias.

Including education scholarship tax credits in the tax reform bill currently before Congress would be a major step toward creating a free market in education. In a free market, parents could select the type of education that best suits the unique needs of their children, instead of the demands of politicians and bureaucrats. Schools could compete on the basis of academics, extracurricular activities, and even lunch menus. Those with unique and innovative education ideas would be free to establish schools and prove their models’ superiority.


Drudge Slams WashPost Report Linking Him to Russian Propaganda

Matt Drudge slammed The Washington Post on Monday over its report late last week that detailed the conservative media giant's links to Russian propaganda ahead of the 2016 election.

Drudge's rare tweet came in the aftermath of a Post story Friday headlined, "One of the busiest websites in the U.S. in 2016 regularly linked to Russian Propaganda."


Alabama voters reportedly got fake robocalls from Washington Post seeking damaging info on Roy Moore

Voters in Alabama reported receiving robocalls seeking damaging information on Roy Moore as the race for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' vacated U.S. Senate seat heats up amid sexual assault allegations.

Pastor Al Moore told WKRG that he received a robocall from the Washington Post’s “Bernie Bernstein” looking for damaging information on Moore in exchange for money.


Troopers Arrest Three Students In Connection With School Fight-Dagsboro

Dagsboro- The Delaware State Police have arrested three students in connection with a fight that occurred earlier this week at Indian River High School, leaving one student and three faculty members injured.

The initial investigation began on Monday, November 13, 2017, when the Delaware State Police School Resource Officer and Dagsboro Police Department was made aware of a fight involving several students and staff members. Further investigation revealed that three female students, ages 17, 16, and 15, entered the school’s main office and attacked another 17-year-old female student who was seated in a chair. As the school staff attempted to break up the fight, the 17-year-old aggressive student was removed and placed into another office, however she continued to be disorderly by pounding on the glass and wood portions of the office door, destroying the door blinds. As a staff member tried to calm her down, the student violently attempted to leave the office, pushing the staff member and causing injury to their hand. While attempting to remove the 15-year-old student, she pushed a male staff member causing him to fall to the floor. As another staff member tried to intervene, the 15-year-old made contact with this staff member causing him to fall to the floor and sustain injury to his shoulder. The 16-year-old student was removed by staff members without further incident.

The 17-year-old student victim was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Atlantic General Hospital where she was treated and released for a head injury and facial lacerations.

One faculty staff member was privately transported to Beebe Walk-In Care where he was treated and released for a shoulder injury.

Another faculty staff member was privately transported to Beebe Walk-In-Care where he was treated and released for a knee injury.

The 17-year-old student was charged with Rioting, two counts of Assault Third Degree and Criminal Mischief. She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and released on $5500.00 unsecured bond. The 16-year-old student was charged with Rioting and one count of Assault Third Degree. She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and released on $4000.00 unsecured bond. The 15-year-old student was charged with Rioting, and two counts of Assault Third Degree. She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and released on $5000.00 unsecured bond.

Rise in teen suicide connected to social media popularity

CHICAGO — An increase in suicide rates among US teens occurred at the same time social media use surged and a new analysis suggests there may be a link.

Suicide rates for teens rose between 2010 and 2015 after they had declined for nearly two decades, according to data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Why the rates went up isn’t known.

The study doesn’t answer the question, but it suggests that one factor could be rising social media use. Recent teen suicides have been blamed on cyberbullying, and social media posts depicting “perfect” lives may be taking a toll on teens’ mental health, researchers say.

Five Times Trump’s DHS Nominee Nielsen Nixed POTUS Principles on Immigration

President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Department of Homeland Security has repeatedly contradicted the pro-American immigration agenda that he was elected to implement.

Breitbart News has compiled the five times in which Kirstjen Nielsen, a former official under President George W. Bush, has been out-of-line with Trump’s Buy “Buy American, Hire American” policies and immigration principles.

1. Support of Amnesty for DACA Illegal Aliens

Nielsen’s most controversial statements on immigration have revolved around her open support for amnesty for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens.

In a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing, Nielsen testified that she believed Americans “owe” amnesty to DACA illegal aliens, Breitbart News reported.

Poll: 58 Percent of Americans Disapprove of Trump Coverage

Fifty-eight percent of Americans disapprove of the media coverage of President Donald Trump, but 54 percent still trust the media more than they trust the president, according to a new Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday.

Fifty-three percent of voters say the media focuses too much on negative stories about Trump compared to 42 percent who say they do not, but 57 percent say they do not believe the stories are made up compared to 39 percent who do.

Trump has slammed the news media consistently since his campaign, and often refers to many outlets as "fake news."

Women on Capitol Hill Tell of 'Sex Trade,' 'Creep List' of Lawmakers

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are so predatory that female staffers are advised not to ride in elevators alone with them, according to accounts compiled by CNN.

Females are also admonished to be careful of male lawmakers who sleep in their offices — another “unwritten” rule that women on Capitol Hill live by, according to the outlet.

The outlet spoke to more than 50 lawmakers, current and former staffers, and other political veterans, who revealed a culture so rife with sexual harassment that there is an informal “creep list” of lawmakers to avoid.

The allegations come after dozens of high-powered Hollywood figures like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., and political journalists have been outed as rapists, predators, and perverts who have subjected men and women to sexual assault for decades.


Ted Cruz: Media Should ‘Ask Democrats the Very Same Questions About Sen. Menendez’

While Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) acknowledged that the allegations made against Republican U.S. Senate candidate from Alabama Judge Roy Moore are “deeply concerning,” he challenged members of the media on Monday evening to ask Democrats “the very same questions” about Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) that are being asked about Moore.

The Texas Tribune (subscription required) published the interview with Cruz, who reportedly said, “As it stands, I can’t urge the people of Alabama to support a campaign in the face of these charges without serious, persuasive demonstration that the charges are not true.”

Cruz, however, went on to say:

"I would note that the media is understandably very eager to cover every aspect of this. For every reporter asking every Republican if Judge Moore should be elected, I would note for sake of consistency, those same reporters should ask every Democrat if Senator Bob Menendez – currently being prosecuted for multiple felonies including allegations that are deeply, deeply concerning – for fairness and consistency, reporters should ask Democrats the very same questions about Senator Menendez that are being asked about Judge Moore and in my view anyone who commits serious criminal conduct of type alleged should not be serving in the United States Senate.."


Sean Hannity Calls Media Matters a ‘Clear and Present Danger’ to Free Speech

Fox News host Sean Hannity warned viewers Monday of the “clear and present danger” from anti-free speech groups such as Media Matters for America, in the wake of a controversy in which the left-wing activist group successfully got Keurig to stop advertising on Hannity’s show.

“Conservative voices in this country for years we have been facing a clear and present danger. This is an unprecedented act that is happening in this country and it has to do with people, right now if you support this president, if you’re a conservative…you’re a target,” he warned.

Keurig announced Saturday it had stopped advertising on Hannity after pressure from Media Matters — who claimed the Fox host had been sympathetic when interviewing Judge Roy Moore over allegations of sexual misconduct. Moore has denied the most serious of the allegations against him.

However, after a counter-protest that featured conservatives destroying their Keurig coffee machines, the company’s CEO emerged Monday to walk back the boycott and apologize for its actions.


Farage: Soros and EU Allies Engaged in ‘The Biggest Level of International Political Collusion in History’

Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage has called out billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros and his “reliable friends” for collusion on a grand scale.

Speaking in a debate on the Paradise Papers in the European Parliament, the UKIP MEP pointed out that the financier had funded the exposé.

“I say this at a time when the use of money and the influence it may have had on the Brexit result or the Trump election has reached a level of virtual hysteria,” he said.

“Just last week the Electoral Commission in the UK launched an investigation to find out whether the Leave campaign took offshore money or Russian money.

“This came about as a result of questions asked in the House of Commons by one Ben Bradshaw, somebody linked to an organisation called Open Society.

“I just wonder when we’re talking about offshore money, when we’re talking about political subversion, when we’re talking about collusion, I wonder whether we’re looking in the wrong place.

“And I say that because George Soros recently gave Open Society, his organisation, which of course campaigns for free movement of peoples and supports supranational structures like the European Union, he recently gave it 18 billion dollars.

“And his influence here, and in Brussels, is truly extraordinary.”

ICE agents: Trump ‘betrayed’ them by leaving Obama’s people in place

The country’s immigration enforcement officers launched a website Tuesday demanding President Trump do more to clean up their agency, saying he’s left the Obama team in place and it’s stymieing his goal of enforcing the laws on the books.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement supervisors in Philadelphia banned officers from wearing bullet proof vests during an operation in the dangerous “badlands” section in the city’s north, for fear of offending the immigrant community, the new website,, charges.

Meanwhile officers in one Utah city are required to give city officials seven days’ heads-up before arresting anyone — and by the time they go in, the migrants they’re targeting seem to have gotten a heads-up and taken off, the website says.

Compiled by the National ICE Council, which represents ICE officers, the website is part whistleblower and part primal scream for Mr. Trump to pay attention to a group of people who were among his staunchest backers during last year’s campaign.

“ICE Officers grudgingly admit that the only President they ever endorsed hasn’t kept his word, and many officers now feel betrayed,” the officers say on the new website.

Publishers Notes: "Drain The Swamp"!

$15 Million in Taxpayer Money Has Been Paid Out to Settle Congressional Sexual Harassment Suits

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) informed NBC’s Chuck Todd on Tuesday that $15 million in taxpayer money had been paid out over the years to settle sexual harassment suits filed against members of Congress.

Earlier in the day, Speier testified in front of the House Administration Committee that two members of Congress, a Republican and a Democrat, have engaged in sexual harassment in the past.

Todd asked Speier about her allegations of sexual harassment and what she believes her responsibility is in going public with that information.

“Well, it is my responsibility to address the seriousness of this issue. These survivors are subject to a non-disclosure agreement. I’m not going to violate their non-disclosure agreement,” Speier responded.


Alabama media have whispered about Roy Moore's alleged behavior for years, as this 2002 article shows

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is pushing back on reports he sought sexual encounters with teens and minors in the 1970s by questioning the timing of the allegations and pointing to what he says is a sterling reputation as a public servant and private citizen.

But local Alabama reporting dating as far back as 2002 suggests his reputation in the state has been anything but sterling, and that his supposedly disturbing behavior has been a topic of discussion in and around his hometown for decades.

Moore has flat-out denied the worst of the allegations found in a Washington Post report published last week, including that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl and that he gave another minor alcohol while on a date.

He has also questioned the timing of the Post report, suggesting that it is all part of a larger smear campaign spearheaded by the press and the Democratic Party.


Professor: ‘Toxic Masculinity Is Killing Everyone’

A professor at Kutztown University, in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, argued recently in a series of tweets that “toxic masculinity” is to blame for the recent Texas church shooting.

According to a report from Campus Reform, Kutztown literature professor Colleen Clemens argued recently in a series of now-deleted tweets that “toxic masculinity” motivated the November 5 Texas Church shooting that claimed 26 lives.

Just a day after the massacre, Clemens tweeted that “toxic masculinity is killing everyone.”

Like a broken record, she tweeted: ““Toxic masculinity is killing everyone. REPEAT. Toxic masculinity is killing everyone. REPEAT. Toxic masculinity is killing everyone. REPEAT.”

Poll: 77% of Democrats with 4-Year Degrees Think Sex Not Determined at Birth

Three out of four college-educated Democrats seem to believe that a man can be a woman if he just says so, regardless of his biology, genetics, and genitalia, according to a skewed survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

The main question in the August-to-September survey of 4,573 people is built on the phrase: “sex assigned at birth.” But that phrase was invented by transgender activists to help them claim that every person’s sex is independent of their biology and that a newborn’s sex should not be unfairly “assigned” by the doctors and parents who examine the newborns’ biology and visible genitalia. The Pew survey asked:

Which statement comes closer to your views, even if neither is exactly right?

Democrats drown out message about tax bill’s benefits to middle class

Even after losing the state and local income tax deduction, taxpayers in New York and other high-tax blue states would still end up ahead under the Republican tax reform bill, analysts say.

But that message is having a tough time breaking through the din in Washington.

Democrats have seized on the state and local tax deduction, or SALT, as their chief argument against the tax code overhaul, warning of an electoral backlash from middle-class suburbanites against Republicans if the plan is approved.

There is one problem: SALT is not a middle-class tax break. The benefit of the write-off goes overwhelmingly to high-income earners in high-tax blue states, several economists said.

“SALT is a classic tax preference for the rich that Democrats should be opposing,” said Brian Riedl, an economist at the conservative-leaning Manhattan Institute who has been studying the tax reform plans.


Billionaire Tom Steyer: World Class Hypocrite

“What is un-American is when shadowy billionaires pour unlimited money into our democracy to rig the system to benefit themselves and the wealthiest one percent. I believe in an America where economic opportunity is open to all. And based on their actions and policies they promote, the Koch brothers seem to believe in an America where the system is rigged to benefit the very wealthy.” —former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, denouncing the $14.5 million spent by Charles and David Koch on Senate races, March 4, 2014

“California billionaire hedge fund manager turned political activist Tom Steyer announced in a press conference on Thursday morning that he is ‘doubling down’ and committing another $10 million to his Need To Impeach campaign against President Donald Trump. The additional capital, which would bring Steyer’s total dollars spent to $20 million, will fund new advertisement buys and at least one new commercial which will be released next week.” —Forbes Magazine, Nov. 9, 2017

For terminally hypocritical Democrats, some billionaires and their spending are “more equal” than others..


Parkside Teacher Press Conference

Trump picks immigration hardliner Tom Homan as ICE director

President Donald Trump on Tuesday named immigration hardliner Tom Homan, who has served nearly 10 months as acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to run ICE on a permanent basis.

Homan has run the agency since Obama appointee Sarah Saldaña — the former U.S. attorney in Dallas — stepped down when Trump took office in January. He has been a public face of the administration's crackdowns on immigrants and border security, a tough-talking law enforcement careerist who is unapologetic about being "heartless" when it comes to deporting even the most sympathetic longtime U.S. residents.

Homan's performance as an advocate for Trump's policies made him briefly the subject of speculation for secretary of homeland security. But that vacancy, created when former Marine Gen. John Kelly took over as White House chief of staff, ended up going to a Kelly deputy.

In July, he floated the possibility of charging mayors and other local leaders with violating anti-smuggling laws if they don't abandon "sanctuary city" practices that shield immigrants from federal enforcement efforts.

Mr. Trump said Tuesday he personally intervened with Chinese President Xi Jinping to seek their release.

Mr. Trump said of the situation, “What they did was unfortunate. That was not something that should have happened.”

'Transracial' man, born white, says he feels Filipino

TAMPA, Fla. — Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino.

He even drives what he calls a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines.

Ja Du is part of a small but growing number of people who call themselves transracial. The term once referred only to someone (or a couple) of a one race adopting a child of another, but now it’s becoming associated with someone born of one race who identifies with another.

Ja Du says he grew up enjoying Filipino food, events and the overall culture.

“Whenever I’m around the music, around the food, I feel like I’m in my own skin,” he said.

“I’d watch the History Channel, sometimes for hours ... nothing else intrigued me more but things about Filipino culture.”


Former Lorton Reformatory converted into luxury apartments

LORTON, Va. - It was a prison for nearly 100 years, but now, the old historic Lorton Reformatory is being turned into a luxury apartment community.

The prison, which was built in 1910 and opened in 1916, stopped housing prisoners in 2001.
Now, Liberty Crest Apartments, a project constructed by Elm Street Development in partnership with Fairfax County and the Alexander Company, has adapted the prison into a mix-use development.

“We’re very excited to be creating a new, vibrant, mix-use community and adaptably reusing these prison buildings, these historic structures in new ways. It’s for office, retail, restaurants, apartments and townhomes,” explained Jack Perkins with Elm Street Development. “It takes a really creative team to have the vision to take a piece of property like this and turn it into something new and exciting, some of the historic fabric, some of the cells would be retained for historical purposes and interpreted use, but most of it would be converted.”

Paul Craig Roberts Laments "I Don't Recognize My Country Today"

Having grown up during the second half of the 20th century, I don’t recognize my country today. I experienced life in a competent country, and now I experience life in an incompetent country.

Everything is incompetent.

The police are incompetent. They shoot children, grandmothers, cripples, and claim that they feared for their life.

Washington’s foreign policy is incompetent. Washington has alienated the world with its insane illegal attacks on other countries. Today the United States and Israel are the two most distrusted countries on earth and the two countries regarded as the greatest threat to peace.

The military/security complex is incompetent. The national security state is so incompetent that it was unable to block the most humiliating attack in history against a superpower that proved to be entirely helpless as a few people armed with box cutters and an inability to fly an airplane destroyed the World Trade Center and part of the Pentagon itself. The military industries have produced at gigantic cost the F-35 that is no match for the Russian fighters or even for the F-15s and F-16s it is supposed to replace.

The media is incompetent. I can’t think of an accurate story that has been reported in the 21st century. There must be one, but it doesn’t come to mind.

The universities are incompetent. Instead of hiring professors to teach the students, the universities hire administrators to regulate them. Instead of professors, there are presidents, vice presidents, chancellors, vice chancellors, provosts, vice provosts, assistant provosts, deans, associate deans, assistant deans. Instead of subject matter there is speech regulation and sensitivity training. Universities spend up to 75% of their budgets on administrators, many of whom have outsized incomes.

Exclusive — Alabama Polls: Judge Roy Moore Maintains Double Digit Lead Over Democrat Doug Jones Before, After WaPo Smear

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Two new polls demonstrate that GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore remains unaffected entirely by smears in the Washington Post against him, and his lead before the Post piece on Thursday afternoon remains intact.

One of the polls, which were both provided by the pollster to Breitbart News exclusively on Saturday evening, was conducted on Thursday morning before the publication of the Postpiece that afternoon. The second one was conducted on Saturday evening. Together, they show Judge Moore’s lead over Democrat Doug Jones has been virtually unaffected since thePost story came out.

The first survey, which was conducted entirely before noon local time on Thursday, shows Moore leading Jones by 50 percent to 39.2 percent with 10.8 percent undecided. That survey of 1,354 likely voters in the upcoming Dec. 12 special election has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.


BUSTED! Moore Accuser's Stepson Spills the Beans

Darrel Nelson and Beverly Young Nelson
Beverly Nelson is one of the Moore accusers and Gloria Allred's client who claimed Judge Roy Moore (Alabama's GOP Senate candidate) tried to rape her in 1977.

The problem with her scripted broadcast - tears and all - is she showed her yearbook with Judge Moore's supposed signature. For one moment contemplate: if you were sexually attacked by someone, would you seek them out to sign your yearbook? Additionally, what yearbook comes out in December? Don't they usually come out in May/June after graduation?

Furthermore, Moore graduated from law school in 1977, which leaves suspect about this woman's account of their supposed encounter. Judge Moore was not the District Attorney in Alabama in '77, he was a Deputy District Attorney, but the signature shows otherwise. Therefore, many have viewed this as further reason to doubt this woman's statements in addition to the Allred connection.

Beverly Young Nelson with Gloria Allred
Many people have debunked her claims; however, the GOPe and MSM are bent on pushing their false narratives to the public will force Moore to step aside in an election that has him ahead by 10 points.

As a result of these allegations, many DC Swamp dwellers in the Republican party have called for him to step aside instead of seeing these accusations for what they are: unsubstantiated claims where time is a mitigating factor as to their authenticity.

At any rate, Ms. Nelson's stepson, Darrel Moore, doesn't believe she's telling the truth. He was so shocked and upset when he found his stepmother had levied these accusations, he went out of his way to make this official video statement, offering to help Judge Moore clear his name.

Nelson's reasoning is he's known about the Judge his whole life and feels she's made these false accusations for money and nothing else. (Note: It was widely reported that Gloria Allred paid a Trump accuser $500K to make false allegations against the then-presidential candidate. Miraculously, that accuser disappeared when Trump threatened to sue her for defamation and slander.)

Mr. Nelson wants to get the word out and has asked everyone to circulate it in the hopes of setting the record straight.

A Viewer Writes: WBOC Bless Our Children

I can tell you about 10 years ago I was needing help for Christmas.

WBOC told me the name of a church they gave funds to. So I made an appointment on Christmas eve to go there. The church told me they didn't get any donations from WBOC. I said well that's funny because they gave me your cell number and said you were one of the last to get $$ from them. They hesitantly made an appointment with me. I waited in their cold church, no lights on, no one talked to us for hours with my sister.

After about 9pm on CHRISTMAS Eve the pastor arrived. He spent about 20 minutes bragging about how he has been able to buy homes for his whole family through donations, walked us out back and shown us building supplies, new bathtubs to be exact on that day and said he's got huge storage units full. All donated to them. He then handed me a football and coloring book for my children. After bragging about getting donations to help families for Christmas. I'm not being selfish when I say this... it gave me a scam vibe.

I was the only family there to get gifts that year. It was like they didn't tell people they got the funds to help. This was my first and only time needing help and since then I've never donated to Bless our Children. Only through churches I trust.

All I'm saying is that they don't do much checking up on who gets these funds. These people were resentful of me being there in the first place. I was the only person who came to get toys and that was all they handed me.

I wanted you to know this happened and could use some digging to see if it's normal or one that slipped through the cracks.

Ohio Republican Christina Hagan: CA, NY 'Elites' Will Not Set Gun Policy for Rest of USA

Ohio State Rep. Christina Hagan (R) is running for U.S. Congress (OH-16) and uses her latest ad to let Ohioans know she will not allow California and New York “Elites” to set gun policy for the rest of the country.

She is running to fill the seat being vacated by Rep. Jim Renacci (R).

Hagan grew up on a farm in Northeastern, Ohio, and uses her new ad to stress that guns have been part of her family’s heritage. She holds a shotgun in the ad and says, “These guns defend my home, my family, my baby.” She then references California and New York “elites,” while images of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and gun control lobby donor Michael Bloomberg flash across the screen. Hagan warns that these elites are trying to curtail Second Amendment rights in Ohio and she pledges to “fight” them and their gun-grabbing schemes.


Modern Day Julius & Ethel Rosenberg

Many of you probably don't remember the Rosenbergs because their case and execution for treason happened during the early Fifties during the Cold War Era. The case centered around them leaking US technological secrets to the Russians. Of course, they proclaimed their innocence but the evidence was overwhelming and they were put to death by electric chair.

The Clintons' Criminal Syndicate is far more involved than the Rosenbergs, which leads one to wonder why they still walk among us given their entanglements and dubious shenanigans throughout decades.

Last night on Sean Hannity, he detailed a roadmap of criminality that demonstrates the staggering lawlessness that has permeated the Clintons' world in recent history. This is all post-White House crime, committed while Hillary Clinton was a Senator, Secretary of State and afterwards. The web of deception is so vast and contains so many players, Hannity was forced to broad-stroke the big ticket items. Stolen Primary, Uranium One (including the Clinton Foundation and pay for play), Email Server, and the DNC IT scandal. All these situations have Hillary at the central hub.

Below is the map in its entirety. 

If you can, try to catch the whole discussion because you will then understand just why so many people are trying to get a Special Prosecutor involved. The evidence is overwhelming.

This Is What's Wrong With This Country: Some Foul Language

Mainstream Media Now Promoting "Gun Confiscation Orders" As Solution To Mass Shootings

In what many saw coming a mile away in the aftermath of both the Las Vegas Massacre and the Texas Church mass shooting, liberals in the government, with the help of their mainstream media allies, are now pushing what amounts to plans for gun confiscation, outside of normal law, for Americans across the country.

The new push for gun control from the left comes courtesy of ABC News which recently published a piece promoting the use of an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) that many believe is nothing more than a thinly veiled confiscation plan that would allow a judge to “issue an ex parte order” for the direct confiscation of an American citizens firearms.

Unbelievably, the order can actually be issued without the firearm owner even being present, which would in turn end with police at the citizens door demanding he hand over his weapons or face violence from the state.

ABC’s Andy Fies, on the other hand, apparently wants Americans to see the orders differently, painting a more friendly picture of the ERPO’s while quoting two different left-wing gun control groups as seemingly unbiased experts on gun violence.


Good Samaritan Stops Rape with Gun: ‘Didn't think I'd ever have to pull it’

‘I pulled my gun and told him to get off her’

A Texas man is being hailed as a hero after he used his firearm to stop a rape occurring on a hike-and-bike trail, in another pro-Second Amendment story you won’t typically see in the mainstream media.

Austin resident Josh Williams, 39, remembered hearing screams as he was jogging during the early morning hours of September 15.

“Apparently he came up behind her and tackled her,” Williams described to KVUE last Wednesday, thankful he was in the right place at the right time.


Week 10: Thousands of Empty Seats Still Plague NFL Stadiums

Photos of empty seats continue to make their appearance on Twitter as the NFL’s Week 10 games debut on Veterans Day, this weekend. Though only a few players decided to protest the country on this day dedicated to our soldiers, fans stayed away in droves.

According to the Twitter account Empty Seats Galore, the Rams “handed out 60,032 tickets” for the game as they met the Houston Texans beating the Texans 33 to 7.

But apparently, not many fans turned out to see the game.

Wife Asks Husband...

Avocados -

A Wife asks her husband, “Could you please go shopping for me and buy a carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6.

A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, “Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?”

He replied, “They had avocados”

If you’re a woman, I’m sure you’re going back to read it again.  Men will get it the first time.

Water in the carburetor

WIFE:  “There is trouble with the car.  It has water in the carburetor.”

HUSBAND:  “Water in the carburetor?  That’s ridiculous.”

WIFE:  “I tell you the car has water in the carburetor.”

HUSBAND:  “You don’t even know what a carburetor is.  I’ll check it out.  Where’s the car?

WIFE:  “In the river”

This is a frightening statistic!

25% of the women in this country are on medication for mental illness.  That’s scary.  It means 75% are running around untreated.

He must pay!

Husband and wife had a tiff.  Wife called up her mom and said, “He fought with me again, I am coming to live with you.”

Mom said, “No darling, he must pay for his mistake.  I am coming to live with you.

Israeli Tech Firm Opens U.S. Headquarters in Maryland

Sesame Enable Executives Met Governor Hogan During Israel Trade Mission in 2016

Governor Larry Hogan today announced that Sesame EnableTM, an Israel-based technology firm, has opened its United States headquarters in Bethesda near the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Governor Hogan met with company executives in 2016 as part of the administration’s economic development and trade mission to Israel, where the governor promoted Maryland as the ideal location for the company’s entry into the U.S. marketplace. The company currently has five employees in the U.S. and is looking to hire up to five additional Marylanders who are veterans or have limited mobility disabilities.

The company has developed a proprietary technology, known as Open Sesame, that enables people to operate a smartphone through head movements and voice control if they cannot use their hands to control the device’s touch screen. Maryland is one of the first states to adopt this technology, which is now available to citizens through the state’s Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) program administered by the Department of Information Technology (DoIT).

“Governor Hogan has been an active supporter of Sesame Enable for the past year as we searched for a U.S. headquarters that would align with our vision of supporting people with physical challenges,” said Oded Ben Dov, CEO and co-founder Sesame Enable, Ltd. “We chose Maryland because of the backing we have received from the state subsidy program, and Bethesda’s proximity to health institutions, including those focusing on veterans. In addition, we are now close to Washington, D.C., where we know we’ll have opportunity to influence change needed to make our technology readily available to all Americans who can benefit from it.”

“Sesame Enable’s decision to choose Bethesda for its U.S. headquarters is tremendous news for Montgomery County and our state,” said Governor Hogan. “I was excited to see this cutting edge technology firsthand, and we are proud to be one of the first states to expand universally accessible options to our citizens with disabilities.”

Eating nuts twice a week cuts your risk of heart disease

Eating a handful of nuts twice a week can slash the risk of heart disease by almost a quarter, say scientists.

A study of more than 200,000 people - many of whom were followed for more than three decades - found all types of nuts helped prevent the world's biggest killer.

Strikingly, the Harvard University researchers said they also found no evidence that nuts fueled weight gain, despite their high calorie content and previous reports to the contrary.

Regular snacking on walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, pistachios, pecans and peanuts achieved dramatic results compared to those who rarely or never ate them.

Those who ate any of these tree nuts two or more times a week were 23 and 15 percent less likely to develop coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease, respectively.


Zimbabwe's military said it had President Robert Mugabe in custody and would arrest the "criminals around him" in what appeared to be a coup

Zimbabwe’s military claimed early Wednesday to have taken custody of President Robert Mugabe, the world’s oldest head of state and one of Africa’s longest-serving leaders.

After apparently seizing the state broadcaster two uniformed officers said that “the situation in our country has moved to another level.” While denying that the military had seized power, they said that Mr. Mugabe and his family “are safe and sound, and their security is guaranteed.”

Pension Ponzi Bailout: Democrats Sponsor US Treasury Bailout Scheme

Most defined benefit pension plans are nothing but Ponzi schemes. Plans are now unraveling because of demographics. An increasing number of retirees, needing untenable returns, are supported by fewer and fewer people putting money in the system. Democrats sponsored a bailout scheme. Will it pass?

Pension and Investments reports Sen. Sherrod Brown to Unveil Multiemployer Loan Program Legislation.

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, plans to introduce legislation that would allow struggling multiemployer pension funds to borrow from the U.S. Treasury to remain solvent.

The bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, could be introduced later this week or shortly after. It would create a new office within the Treasury Department called the Pension Rehabilitation Administration. The funds would come from the sale of Treasury-issued bonds to financial institutions. The pension funds could borrow for 30 years at low interest rates. One restriction for borrowers is they could not make risky investments.

The bill would also fund a program at the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. to finance any remaining needs of pension plans borrowing from the new program. "Any money needed for the PBGC would be a tiny fraction of what it would otherwise be on the hook for if Congress fails to act," said an analysis by Mr. Brown's office.

Mr. Brown told a group of retired Teamsters in Ohio on Monday that the bill will be out shortly.

NEW YORK – Officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested 25 during a 6-day period, ending Nov. 9 in Long Island in an enforcement effort dubbed, Operation Secure Streets.
