    Trump Declared May 1 “Loyalty Day,” But You Shouldn’t Freak Out About It By Morgan Brinlee 19 hours ago President Donald Trump asked Americans to reaffirm their allegiance to the United States' founding principals in a proclamation that caused a number of people on social media to flip out. In his proclamation, Trump called on Americans to "observe this day with appropriate ceremonies," including reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and asked government officials to display the American flag on all government buildings and grounds. But while Trump's request may sound a bit Orwellian, the truth is there's no reason to...

    FULL Title - Former SEIU Official Reveals Secret Plan To Destroy JP Morgan, Crash The Stock Market, And Redistribute Wealth In America A former official of one of the country's most-powerful unions, SEIU, is detailing a secret plan to "destabilize" the country.

    Schools shouldn't see a major financial hit because of Monday's immigration rallies because the state quit counting students for funding purposes two weeks ago. Several districts reported up to a threefold jump in absences Monday, so there was potential for a serious loss of funding. Students who missed class won't face any unusual punishments beyond the normal steps for unexcused absences, school officials said. Schools are paid by the state based on the number of students in attendance. If a student has an unexcused absence, the district doesn't get paid for that student on that day. Funding is "based on...

    Two of the three Republican candidates for lieutenant governor differed Monday over whether the job should be part-time or full-time and over a possible proposal for Arkansas voters to prohibit most state services from being provided to illegal aliens. Chuck Banks of Little Rock said the public wants a part-time lieutenant governor. Jim Holt of Springdale said he wants it to be full-time as a “bully pulpit” to push for possible ballot measures, such as one to deny state services that aren’t mandated by the federal government to illegal aliens and require stricter identification for voter registration. Banks suggested that...
