    A former Republican senator is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president after the mass shooting in Orlando, Fla., citing her support for gun control. Former Sen.

I cant believe Im endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, but I am, said Pressler, who spoke with The Hill on Monday after endorsing Clinton in a statement issued over the weekend.

No one is that crazy to make such a foolish statement. If you are one to make such a claim please take this brief test. Almighty Gods Holy Law (The 10 Commandments) clearly reveals and conveys to every human being that we are truly transgressors of the natural and SPIRITUAL absolutes of Almighty God and that we are fully accountable to Him on this matter (Isa. 1:18, Rom...

    The manufacturing executives had gathered in an Atlanta conference room last year to honor their senior United States senator, Johnny Isakson, for his tireless efforts on their behalf in Washington. But as the luncheon wound down, Mr. Isakson found himself facing a man from Coweta County. The man, Burl Finkelstein, said trade policies with Mexico and China were strangling the family-owned kitchen-parts company he helped manage, and imperiling the jobs it provided. Mr. Isakson politely brushed him off, Mr. Finkelstein recalled, as he had many times before. So when the Georgia primary rolled around this month, Mr. Finkelstein, along with...

He works with children who are at-risk children and came up with this idea to help the children. I was thinking maybe if I have the boys dress for success, said Nelson.

    This is a major economic blow to Indianapolis' struggling manufacturing sector. One of the City's largest employers, Carrier, announced it's closing its manufacturing facility on Indianapolis' west side, eliminating 1,400 jobs. The layoffs will begin in 2017 and be spread over three years according to the Indianapolis Star. Carrier's president of HVAC systems, Chris Nelson, says the move is part of the "continued migration of the HVAC industry to Mexico, including our suppliers and competitors, and ongoing cost and pricing pressures driven, in part, by new regulatory requirements." Let me guess that more than a few of these workers at...

He claimed, "I am the light of the world." He challenged believers, "You are the light of the world.

    Manufacturing activity in the U.S. contracted at the fastest pace since July 2009 in December, dampening optimism over the strength of the economy and adding to uncertainty as to how fast the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next year, industry data showed on Monday. In a report, the Institute for Supply Management said its index of purchasing managers fell to 48.2 last month from a reading of 48.6 in November. Analysts had expected the manufacturing PMI to inch up to 49.0 in December. The New Orders Index registered 49.2, an increase of 0.3 points from the reading of 48.9...

Clinton Birthplace, designated as a National Historic Site, around 3:20 a.m. Friday, according to police. Hope Fire Department Chief Dale Glanton said his department will investigate the incident as arson, rather than an accident. "There's just evidence and signs that we do believe it was intentionally set," Glanton told KSLA-TV.

His compulsive boasting is evidence of insecurity. His unassuageable neediness suggests an aching hunger for others’ approval to ratify his self-admiration. His incessant announcements of his self-esteem indicate that he is not self-persuaded. Now, panting with a puppy’s insatiable eagerness to be petted, Trump has reveled in the approval of Vladimir...

That he had no record of achievement was seen as an advantageous clean slate.

Next, the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance oration, Barrys stock was skyrocketing.Soon, however,...
