    A government watchdog found "no evidence" that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo violated a federal law governing political activities with trips he took to Kansas last year. The disclosure was made on Thursday by Pompeo when he sent a letter to Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, that included a copy of the Office of Special Counsel's (OSC) report, and then also sent a copy of the letters to a group of reporters. "OSC has no evidence to conclude that you violated the Hatch Act. Therefore, we are closing this matter without further action,"...

    LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — A active-duty soldier at Fort Leavenworth is being hailed a hero for intervening and ending an active shooting Wednesday morning on the Centennial Bridge. Police say his actions saved multiple lives. Leavenworth Police Chief Patrick Kitchens said officers were called to the bridge at 11 a.m. for a report of shots fired that was originally reported as a result of road rage. When officers arrived they found one man with a gunshot wound and another man trapped under a car. Emergency crews took both to a Kansas City hospital with serious injuries. As police investigated and spoke...

    Wichita, Kansas – Reports to one Kansas county’s hotline and web form for reporting “violations” of Democrat Gov. Laura Kelly’s COVID-19 stay at home orders reveal several startling lessons about human nature and the priorities of those most likely to tattle. What soon became known as the “snitch line” was operated by Sedgwick County, Kansas, from late March through May 1, 2020. A listing of the 1,582 complaints made to the county was obtained by Operation Rescue. It showed complaints made from March 26 through April 27, 2020. It also revealed what people wanted shut down most. Among those complained...
  • Joe Biden Hires Aide Who Said Being ‘Accused’ of Sexual Harassment Was Disqualifying

    Former Vice President Joe Biden hired a “senior adviser” on Wednesday who said in 2017 that no one who has been “accused of sexual harassment or assault” should run for public office. Karine Jean-Pierre, who was then the chief public affairs officer for left-wing MoveOn.org, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union that even if nothing had been proved against a candidate, the mere accusation of sexual impropriety should be disqualifying. Tapper asked Jean-Pierre to respond to a case in which a female Democratic candidate for Congress in Kansas named Andrea Ramsey dropped out of the race because...

    A Kansas Republican congressman who is also a medical professional has backed President Donald Trump's championing of the drug hydroxychloroquine to mitigate the risk of the coronavirus, and has recommended that anyone over the age of 65 should ask their doctor about it. The comments by Rep. Roger Marshall, an obstetrician who serves in Kansas' 1st congressional district, follow Trump's revelation he is taking the antimalarial drug which he has cited as a defense against the coronavirus. Marshall said that he, his siblings, his parents and his wife are taking the drug "prophylactically." "I would encourage any person over the...

    Before government shut the nation down, Americans ate half their meals outside home. The farmers who served restaurants and cafeterias are dumping meat, veggies, and milk. And it's going to get worse. America’s food system is cracking.People are still eating, farmers are still farming, and grocery stores are still open, but in areas around the country, shoppers looking for meat, milk, and other products find empty shelves and limits on what they can purchase — all while farmers from coast to coast are forced to dump milk, plow up vegetables, and euthanize livestock. So what’s happening, and why?There isn’t a...

    The Senate failed Thursday to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a bill that would curb his ability to take military action against Iran. The Senate came up short of the two-thirds majority, and it voted 49-44, with seven GOP senators joining Democrats. Seven Republicans broke with Trump: Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Todd Young of Indiana, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) joined Democrats in February to pass the bill, but he did not vote Thursday. Trump on Wednesday night,...

    A federal appeals court on Wednesday backed a lower court’s ruling that a Kansas voter identification law crafted by former Secretary of State Kris Kobach is unconstitutional and violates the National Voter Registration Act. The law heralded by Kobach took effect in 2013 and mandates that people provide documentation proving U.S. citizenship before being allowed to register to vote. The decision from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes after a federal district court struck down the law on the same grounds. The judges said the state had failed to provide convincing arguments in its appeal that Kansas was...

    Kansas cannot demand that new voters who register under the federal Motor-Voter law prove citizenship before their applications will be accepted, a U.S. appeals court ruled Wednesday. The two judges of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Kansas at best proved only a few noncitizens registered to vote each year, and said that wasn’t as bad as more than 30,000 would-be voters who were prevented from registering because of the citizenship requirement. “The significant burden quantified by the 31,089 voters who had their registration applications canceled or suspended requires us to increase the ‘rigorousness of our inquiry,’ …...

    Under orders from pro-abortion Governor Laura Kelly, Kansans can be punished for going to church because of the coronavirus, but abortion facilities in the state continue to jeopardize lives by killing unborn babies. However, a court has put a stop to that. Kelly’s executive order, issued just before Easter, bans religious services of more than 10 people. It also allows religious leaders and their congregants to be punished with fines of up to $2,500 and 12 months in jail for violations. Meanwhile, abortion businesses, including one in Wichita that kills unborn children in late-term abortions, can remain open. A week...

    Did you hear that President Trump recently tweeted that Mexicans were “Plague Spreaders”? Isn’t it shocking that Mike Pence, in referring to women in the workforce said, “We need a list of the virus-spreaders & the virus-adjacent”? Can you believe that Rush Limbaugh actually referred to non-Christians as members of a “Death Cult”? Yeah, me neither. Because they didn’t. However, a professor at Kansas State University recently said those exact things about Republicans when he wrote, “Has anyone developed an app to track Republicans & other plague-spreaders?” He also referred to local Republicans as, “Local branch of death cult, aka...

    Kansans can be punished for going to church this week because of the coronavirus, but abortion facilities in the state continue to jeopardize lives by killing unborn babies. The Kansas Supreme Court quickly handed down a ruling Saturday allowing Gov. Laura Kelly, a pro-abortion Democrat, to ban church services and punish those who refuse to comply. Allowed to stand barely 24 hours before Easter Sunday, Kelly’s executive order bans religious services of more than 10 people. It also allows religious leaders and their congregants to be punished with fines of up to $2,500 and 12 months in jail for violations....

    One small town in Southeast Kansas looked at a restrictive cruise night ban from their local government and said, “No, enough!” And a little help from the Kansas Justice Institute made it stick. The cruise night ban was issued even though it was not planned for anyone to leave their cars. Samuel G. MacRoberts, litigation director and general counsel for KJI, the legal arm of the Kansas Policy Institute, which also owns the Sentinel, sent a letter to the city on April 9, noting that the city’s order to prohibit car parades or cruise nights was worded in such a...
