    “I cover many issues in many countries” (Univision’s Jorge Ramos to CNN’s Brian Stelter 8/25/2015). “I’ve never ceased to be Mexican. I have two passports, and I vote in elections in both countries" (Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Time Magazine, 1/2/2013). “Then why your silence on the thousands upon thousands of Cubans that are arrested, beaten, extorted and deported by migratory officials of YOUR country, Mr. Ramos?” (Rafael Alejandro Hernández, 8/28/ 2015).  Rafael Alejandro Hernández is a young Cuban lawyer living in Mexico who knows from firsthand experience what migrants to Mexico go through. Last week he unloaded on Jorge Ramos: “Mr. Ramos,...

    When a Bible Club and Gang Bangers Collide... By Efrem Graham News Anchor & Reporter Tuesday, September 01, 2015 LOS ANGELES -- Classes are back in session for many public schools, and for thousands of California students that means a return to weekly Bible club meetings.

Brian Barcelona speaks at many of those high school Bible club meetings - and students are paying attention.

    Authorities in New Jersey say two employees of a day care center encouraged children to fight each other on at least one day. The Union County prosecutor charged Erica Kenny, 22, of Cranford, and Chanese White, 28, of Roselle, with fourth-degree child abuse. Kenny was also charged with third-degree endangering the welfare of a child. Prosecutors said the two women, who were employed at Lightbridge Academy in Cranford, instigated fights among children who were between 4 and 6. Kenny shot video of the so-called fight club and shared them with friends on social media, authorities said. The videos show boys...

    Over 150 students at a Missouri high school walked out of class Monday and staged a two-hour protest to voice their disapproval with a transgender student's request to use the girls' locker room to change for her physical education class. After dozens of parents showed up to a school board meeting at Hillsboro High School last Thursday to discuss their concerns over a senior transgender student's desire to use the girls' locker room and bathrooms, students and parents took to the school's parking lot on Monday to tell administrators they won't allow girls' privacy rights to be infringed upon to...

    As Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican presidential race, frustration and panic have become high enough to make some inside the party Establishment pine for a candidate they roundly rejected as recently as January: Mitt Romney. Romney himself has become one of Trump’s most vocal detractors inside the party. “He’s someone to whom civility means a lot. The whole Trump thing really bothers him,” a close Romney adviser told me — and some Romney-ites are only too happy to talk up the prospect of their man jumping into the race if the Establishment fails to stop Trump, whose support...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump met with Javier Palomarez, CEO of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, behind closed doors Tuesday to discuss a number of issues important to Hispanic voters. According to a statement by USHCC, the meeting was requested by Trump and lasted more than one hour at the billionaire's Fifth Avenue office building in New York City. Although USHCC has previously denounced Trump's rhetoric–particularly on the topic of immigration — as "harsh" and insensitive," Palomarez reportedly agreed to the meeting after Trump's advisers stressed that the pair's disagreement was "based on the media's mischaracterization of his stances."...

For them, the story is one of religious bias from the hateful right standing in the way of human happiness. The other story is receiving less national attention.

Some 17 million Britons are potential beneficiaries of the drug, but they will not be able to use it, because the United Kingdom’s version of Sarah Palin’s death panel — which bears the pleasingly Orwellian name NICE, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence — says it is too expensive.

    A new report by my colleague Steven Camarota finds that most immigrant households use welfare. That immigrants receive taxpayer-funded benefits at higher rates than the native-born isn’t a new finding. But previous research (including by CIS) has never found such a high rate. The reason is that Camarota used a different Census Bureau data source, the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), that is more difficult to use but, as its name suggests, provides the most comprehensive view of welfare use (a.k.a “program participation”). The study shows that 51 percent of immigrant-headed households use at least one welfare...

    Cecile Richards has pounded the drum till its skin has worn thin: Women’s healthcare is in danger. Without Planned Parenthood, women will die. Women will have no way to obtain pap smears, breast exams, and birth control, unless the half a billion taxpayer dollars a year keeps flowing into her hands. On its face, this seems relatively ridiculous. We have Obamacare, which mandates “free” birth control. We have Republicans looking to make birth control even easier to obtain by making it available in stores. One wonders if Planned Parenthood got the memo from the Centers for Disease Control that aggregates...

    The takeaway moment from the latest fetal tissue video comes when a woman identified as Advanced BioScience Resources’s Perrin Larton recounts cases in which the fetus “just fell out” during an abortion procedure. Depending on what happened next, that could be an unfortunate accident — or it could be a violation of the national Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. Released Tuesday, the ninth undercover video from the pro-life Center for Medical Progress fuels the growing contention that those involved in the fetal tissue procurement business, including Planned Parenthood, may have broken as many as a half-dozen federal laws.

Nothing is off the table – brain matter, eyes, hands, livers, hearts, lungs, and assorted tissue from aborted infants in various stages of development. The accompanying videos show Planned Parenthood abortion doctors talking about their work as if its just another day at the office, and they are negotiating bulk sales of...

The video features a conversation between a prospective baby organ buyer/researcher and Perrin Larton, the procurement director for Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), a California-based non-profit organ middleman. In one portion of the video, Larton brags that while President George W. Bush banned federal funding for research on new embryonic stem cell lines, taxpayer-funded research on aborted baby body parts was not banned. “Now they’re trying to make abortion illegal, and that’s...

    Hillary Clinton’s support for abortion is longstanding and unwavering. But many Americans may be surprised to learn just how extreme her position is. A November 2014 poll conducted by The Polling Company found that just 13% of Americans believe abortion should be legal for any reason and essentially at any time during pregnancy. In other words, just 13% of Americans agree with Hillary Clinton on abortion. Here are 10 times so far in the 2016 campaign that Hillary Clinton has showed her extremism on abortion. 1) “Religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” to expand abortion. At a...

The video clips claim to show Planned Parenthood discussing the sale of fetal body parts for financial gain. Sen. Tommy Garrett said if federal lawmakers won't de-fund the organization, he's going to stop Planned Parenthood from collecting fetuses before they sell them. The Center for Medical Progress released the footage recently.

If Jenner weren’t already a rich celebrity, would she have received the same support? How would other, less famous transgender Americans be treated?

With that philosophical premise, former Oklahoma Rep. J.C. Watts (R) isolated the differences between members of the two political parties in the clearest manner I've ever heard, and the implications of his statement are considerable, as it explains many Republican policies for at least a generation.

    If you’ve been holding out any hope that Congress might actually put up a fight against Planned Parenthood’s $528 million in federal funding, think again. The House of Representatives may be holding a vote on it after Labor Day, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reiterated that that’s all we’re going to see: The Senate Democrats have a big enough number to prevent us from doing things. They prevented us from doing any of the bills that appropriate money for the government, thereby forcing a negotiation when we go back in after Labor Day, which I’ll be engaged in...

    Black lives matter — unless, apparently, you’re Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. The left is renewing its venomous, racist attacks on Thomas in the aftermath of his dissent in the Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling in favor of gay marriage. Actor George Takei smeared Thomas as a “clown in blackface.” The Huffington Post called his dissent “beyond ridiculous” and tarred him as a hypocrite for opposing a court-created “right” to gay marriage: “Clarence Thomas is married to a white woman — something that would be illegal today, if it weren’t for the Supreme Court’s historic Loving v. Virginia ruling.” As if...

    Regulating fast food kids' meals that include toys may end up making the meals healthier, according to a new study. If a proposed new policy in New York City is approved, then fast food meals that come with toys would contain fewer calories overall, and fewer from fat and sodium, researchers report. "We can create policies that will nudge us toward healthier behaviors," said senior author Marie Bragg, of NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. The proposed policy, which was introduced to the New York City Council, says fast food meals that come with a small toy must include...

    Unemployed individuals in America are more likely to go shopping, watch TV, or play sports on an average day than to look for a new job, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Less than one in five of America’s unemployed, or 18.2 percent, participated in job search and interview activities on an average day, according to the BLS data from the American Time Use Survey. Yet 40.8 percent of the unemployed shopped on the average day by store, telephone, or Internet. Of those who shopped, 21.5 percent of those shopped for items other than groceries, food, or...
  • Many Hispanics want Pope Francis to address Trump on immigration

    Karla Perez loves Pope Francis. Like her, he’s a native Spanish speaker. He is also the first Latin American to lead the Catholic Church, and he talks easily about soccer and prefers public buses to luxury cars. Most of all, though, Perez loves this pope because he has made better treatment of immigrants a centerpiece of his two-year-old papacy. She hopes, as do many of the nearly 30 million Hispanic Catholics in the country, that this month’s visit by Francis will change the tone of the nation’s divisive immigration debate. “I’m an immigrant myself, and I hear politicians saying they...

    So says PPP, the same outfit responsible for that poll a few weeks back showing Trump losing head-to-head match-ups against Rubio and Walker in North Carolina. Either NC is an outlier or the mood has changed nationally because Republicans across America now prefer him to either of those candidates — and not narrowly either. He leads Rubio by eight when voters are forced to choose between them and Walker by 14. As for Jeb Bush, gadzooks:Jeb’s got another month to turn things around before the donor class heads for the lifeboats, I think. There is one candidate tested who...

    In the feud between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, embattled former Rep. Anthony Weiner – Abedin's husband – is stepping into the line of fire. In a radio show appearance Monday, Weiner called Trump's suggestion that Abedin may have shared state secrets with him both "wrong" and "outrageous."
  • McConnell to conservatives: Look, we don’t have the numbers in Senate to defund Planned Parenthood

    We do have the numbers to force a shutdown, but McConnell’s already ruled that out. I’m going to look on the bright side here: At least this guy’s trying to spare us another dismal episode of GOP failure theater. If we had a majority in the Senate that was prepared to dig in and have this fight on principle, no matter what the polls say, it’d be worth considering a shutdown. Obama might blink if it lasted long enough. Because we have the majority we have, there’s really no point. It’ll play out just as lefty Bill Scher says...

    The Kentucky county clerk facing potentially stiff penalties for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses has been married four times, raising questions of hypocrisy and selective application of the Bible to her life. The marriages are documented in court records obtained by U.S. News, which show that Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis divorced three times, first in 1994, then 2006 and again in 2008. She gave birth to twins five months after divorcing her first husband. They were fathered by her third husband but adopted by her second. Davis worked at the clerk's office at the time of each divorce...
