    OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada agreed Thursday to hear the case of a woman who was ticketed and arrested after she refused instructions to hold onto an escalator handrail. Bela Kosoian was in a subway station in the Montreal suburb of Laval in 2009 when a police officer told her to respect a pictogram with the instruction, “hold the handrail.” She replied that she did not consider the image, which also featured the word “Careful,” to be an obligation. She refused to hold the handrail, and tensions mounted after she also refused to identity herself. She was “taken...

    Republican politicians, ALL OF YOU, you have seen the enemy and it is your elections departments. In the NEXT election, you must be pro-active and hire election fraud attorneys before the election. And then from day one, you need to actively challenge anything the Democrats do which increases their count, because you KNOW the count will only increase for Democrats until the Republican is defeated. Challenge in State courts and challenge in Federal Courts, and especially challenge the provisional ballots. And here is something that I continually marvel at. How is it possible, with anywhere from two to four years...

    Since California now has a super majority in the Assembly/Senate and can and will legislate any tax or thing their little Socialist hearts desire, we are now committed to leaving. We will be part of the exodus from the Socialist Republic of California. It's going to be a historical migration within our Nation, if not already. Since we are both Conservatives, we won't be bringing any of the Liberal/Socialist ideals with us and would make good neighbors.

    You’re not the center of the universe. In fact, no one really cares about you. It’s harsh, but true. Sure, you have family and a few great friends. They will take particular interest in various parts of your life, helping you when needed. But they don’t care about you nearly as much as you care about yourself. Ultimately, you’re not top of mind to anyone but yourself. When properly understood, this is incredibly freeing and valuable.

    I just uploaded a new video--no cuts, no titles, no photos. There’s no time for that right now. I knew about the massive voter fraud that has been occurring since the recent elections. But frankly, I didn’t realize it was THIS BAD! I saw a article this evening that was alarming, to say the least. It chronicles just how bad the fraud is. How bad? Check out the title: Since Election Day, Democrats Have Picked Off Over a Dozen GOP House Seats and 2 Senate Seats… And Are Going for More! I discuss the article’s highlights and their frightening...

The incident originally took place on Tuesday but LAPD responded to the address Wednesday where Avenatti could be heard saying “She hit me first, This is bullsh–,” the website reported.

    Trump then lobbied for voter ID with a bizarre statement that left many people scratching their heads. “If you buy a box of cereal — you have a voter ID,” Trump said. “They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.” As anyone who has purchased cereal might have noticed, you don’t need to show ID. Still, that didn’t stop Twitter users from milking the president’s comments for laughs.

    For the love of God, please prove me wrong. The country is gone. For the first time since the pilgrims have reached the shores of North America, the culture that both preceded, as well as lasted over 200 years, has met its final requiem in the 2018 “elections.” The Fabian Socialists have finally taken over the United States, the last bastion of economic, religious, and cultural freedom in the world, the rule of law, and Constitutional Republicanism that guarantees the rights of individuals over the suppression of government. In short, we are entering the darkest days that America will ever...
