    Amid the current national debate over immigration policies, racial discrimination, LGBTQ rights, and executive power, the anniversary of an important legal and political dispute that has directly shaped that debate will pass quietly, its legacy all but forgotten. In September 1958, sixty years ago next week, the United States Supreme Court finally earned its hard-fought reputation as a co-equal branch of the federal government, in a courtroom drama filled with urgency and uncertainty. For perhaps the first time, the high court put muscle behind its mandate, asserting in unequivocal terms that its interpretation of the Constitution was the "supreme law...

    LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — Dozens attended a rally held by the Satanic Temple at the Arkansas State Capitol on Thursday. The rally comes after the Arkansas legislature approved the placement of a Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds. During the Satanic Temple's Rally for the First Amendment, a more than 8-feet-tall Baphomet statue was unveiled. Those against the rally also attended, telling KATV they had hoped to spread God's love.

    A more than 8-feet-tall Baphomet statue was unveiled. Following the installation of the Ten Commandments monument, the Satanic Temple filed a lawsuit to have its statue placed on the same grounds in the name of religious pluralism and the First Amendment. During the 2017 legislative session, the Satanic Temple sent a letter to Arkansas legislators asking for lawmakers to sponsor a bill that would allow a Baphomet statue on Capitol grounds, but not one lawmaker responded.

    The Satanic Temple unveiled its statue Thursday of a goat-headed, winged creature called Baphomet during a First Amendment rally at the Arkansas State Capitol to protest a Ten Commandments monument already on the Capitol grounds. With Satanists, atheists and Christians among those in attendance, several speakers called for the removal of the Ten Commandments monument or for state government officials to install Baphomet as well. The Satanic Temple said the Ten Commandments monument violates constitutional freedom of religion rights and that installation of their statue will demonstrate religious tolerance. Satanic Arkansas cofounder Ivy Forrester, who helped organize the rally,...

It was about 2:30 a.m. when airport security personnel contacted police about seeing a man jump a fence and attempt to enter an American...

    Arkansas taxpayers won another victory in court Monday when a federal judge rejected Planned Parenthood’s argument against defunding it of Medicaid dollars. Arkansas moved to strip the abortion chain of taxpayer dollars in 2015 after undercover videos exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts trade. The abortion chain sued, but in November, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a victory to the state. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker also ruled against the abortion group by rejecting its new request for a preliminary injunction against the state, Arkansas Online reports. Baker is the same judge who initially sided with...

    SALINE COUNTY, Ark. - The sound of a barking dog echoes down terrace drive. A sound that may haunt Bobby Brimer. "I mean it hurts to even think about what I've seen," he said. Monday morning, returning from errands, he turned on a road he's driven up for 30 years, only to witness an horrific attack. "Seen these dogs dragging a woman down the road into the ditch." He jumped out of his truck with his cane and tree trimming tools and tried to beat away the 8 or 9 dogs from the helpless woman. "She was laying in the...

    Like every presidential election that liberals lose, years later we’re still hearing about how unfair it all was. Of course, the favorite complaint of liberals this time around is “Russia did it!” Even if you accept for the sake of argument that Russia wanted Trump to win and hacked John Podesta’s email (and neither of those assertions may be true), buying some inconsequential Facebook ads for both sides and revealing the contents of John Podesta’s emails (none of which turned into truly major stories) wasn’t exactly a game changer. Liberals also noted that Hillary would have won had the election...

    In 1989 then-Gov. Bill Clinton was sued as one of three top Arkansas officials responsible for the intimidation of black voters in his state as part of a legal action brought under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, NewsMax.com has learned. And a year earlier the U.S. Supreme court ruled that Clinton had wrongfully tried to overturn the election of a black state representative in favor of a white Democrat. In the 1989 case, "the evidence at the trial was indeed overwhelming that the Voting Rights Act had been violated," reported the Arkansas Gazette on Dec. 6, 1989. (The paper later...

    A top conservative leader criticized former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) for tweeting out a picture of gang members, saying they were House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) “campaign committee.” Bob Vander Plaats, the president and CEO of Iowan conservative group The Family Leader, chastised the former governor on Saturday. “Where did my friend and pastor @GovMikeHuckabee go?” Vander Plaats tweeted. “I want him back. I’ll assume someone hijacked his twitter account.” “He’s way better than this!” He added. Vander Plaats was responding to a tweet from Huckabee on Saturday appearing to link Pelosi with gang members. “Nancy Pelosi introduces...

    Chinese clothing maker that signed one of several deals with Gov. Asa Hutchinson to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. has begun production and posted “help wanted” signs on its newly-created website to fill vacancies at its new Little Rock port location.

In a ceremony at the State Capitol...
