    February 13, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The deputy chief executive of the international pro-abortion, pro-contraception charity Oxfam has resigned as a scandal over the organization’s abuse of Haiti earthquake victims continues to unfold. Last week, the news broke that following the 2010 Haiti earthquake, senior Oxfam officials stationed in that country hired earthquake victims for sex. Oxfam then allegedly covered up and minimized how its officials had used earthquake victims, some of whom were possibly underage, as prostitutes. Roland van Hauwermeiren, Oxfam’s Haiti director, admitted to using prostitutes himself. He and several others were sacked or allowed to resign provided they...

    Rep. Kevin Cramer has signaled to confidants that he will reverse course and run against Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., in what promises to be one of the nation's most hotly contested Senate elections, two GOP sources familiar with his plans told NBC News. Cramer, the state's lone House member and a close ally of President Donald Trump, has long been considered the blue-chip recruit for Republican. He announced in January that he wouldn't challenge Heitkamp, but White House officials, party leaders and Cramer's home-state supporters continued to pressure him to jump in. One of the other two candidates in the...

    Chinese spies are spreading throughout the United States as part of “a whole-of-society threat,” FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Tuesday. The problem is exacerbated by the “naivete” of U.S. academics who don’t recognize the intelligence collectors among them. “They’re exploiting the very open research-and-development environment that we have, which we all revere, but they’re taking advantage of it,” he said. “So, one of the things we’re trying to do is view the China threat as not just a whole-of-government threat but a whole-of-society threat on their end and I think it’s going to take a whole of-society response by...

    RUSH: “Feds Collect Record Taxes in First Month Under Tax Cuts.” When I saw this, I wondered how many people are gonna say, “Rush was right.” I wonder how many people are gonna say, “Rush told us this was gonna happen.” I wonder how many people are gonna remember for the last 30 years, “Yep. This is exactly what works every time it’s tried. Rush told us.” Quote: “The federal government this January ran a surplus while collecting record total tax revenues for that month of the year, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released [Monday].

    The California Attorney General Tuesday issued details on how businesses can navigate a controversial new state law that limits employers’ cooperation with immigration authorities while still complying with federal law. “Just to be clear, there is no conflict between what (the California law) requires and what federal law requires,” Attorney General Xavier Becerra said at a press event. The new Immigrant Worker Protection Act (AB 450) went into effect at the start of the year and has caused concern and confusion among some employers. It requires employers to keep workers informed when the federal government is investigating their status and...
  • Chicago police commander shot to death while responding to robbery

    A high-ranking Chicago police officer was shot to death Tuesday afternoon at the Thompson Center administrative building downtown while assisting a tactical team that was chasing a suspect, police said. Commander Paul Bauer of the Near North District was shot several times a little before 2 p.m., according to Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. He said a suspect was taken into custody and a gun recovered. “It’s a difficult day for us, but we’ll get through it,” Johnson told reporters outside Northwestern Hospital, where Bauer had been taken. Bauer, 53, joined the department in 1986 and worked all across the city...

    Democrats on Tuesday won yet another special election for a state legislative seat once held by a Republican, this time in a battleground seat south of Tampa, Fla. With all precincts reporting, attorney Margaret Good (D) took 52 percent of the vote, ousting Sarasota real estate agent James Buchanan (R). Good won despite Buchanan's well-known name: His father, Rep. Vern Buchanan (R), owned some of the largest car dealerships in the area. He now represents a district in Congress that includes the legislative seat in which his son ran. President Trump carried the state legislative district by a five-point margin...

    RUSH: From the Morning Consult… It’s a polling outfit. Remember, I don’t care about any of this, but they do. You would not believe the number of people who live and die by these things. I remember I had dinner with Tim Russert and his wife, Maureen Orth, way, way, way, way back when I lived in New York. It was back during the Perot, George H. W. Bush, Clinton era. I forget. We were nowhere near an election, it was still two years away, and Tim was just reciting every poll he knew about and what it meant, two...

    For reasons I may never understand, a lot of people in 2018 America regard victimhood as a sort of currency. The worse off you claim to be, the higher your status. Every minute of every day is a competition to see who's the most oppressed. Who's the most offended. And when your entire identity centers around how badly you're being wronged, no slight is too slight. The better you're doing in life, the harder you have to work to stay #woke. ...

    The women of ABC News' “The View” took a shot a Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of Indiana for talking to Jesus and even calling it a “mental illness.” It all started when they played a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother,” in which former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman discussed the vice president. “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence… everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” she said in the clip. “I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks...

    A 28-year-old man who suffered from postoperative pain was convinced that he could heal himself through swimming in cold water. Through this technique, he was able to cure his pain when nothing else worked. His experience and the associated report are published in the BMJ Case Reports. The man behind this story is 28 years old. While suffering from excessive facial redness, he underwent an operation (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) that cut off the triggering nerves in his chest. Although the operation went perfectly, he subsequently suffered severe and...

    Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) will challenge Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), according to a GOP candidate who announced on Tuesday that he’s dropping out of the North Dakota Senate race. Gary Emineth, a former state GOP party chairman, sent an email to supporters that he’s withdrawing from the Senate race, citing Cramer’s entry. But Cramer, who passed on a high-profile Senate bid last month, has yet to officially announce his plans. He told a regional news service Friday that he’s “mildly reconsidering” the race, amid reports that GOP leaders are urging him to take on Heitkamp.
