    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Actor Alec Baldwin followed up his latest parody portrayal of President Donald Trump with a serious call Sunday night for voters to use the Nov. 6 midterm elections to peacefully "overthrow" the government. After reprising his role as Trump on "Saturday Night Live," Baldwin flew to New Hampshire, where he was the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's annual fall fundraising dinner. "The way we implement change in America is through elections. We change governments here at home in an orderly and formal way," he said. "In that orderly and formal way and lawful way,...

    A member of the Young Democratic Socialists of America at Georgia Tech University is furious at Sen. David Perdue after the Georgia Republican nationalized his phone while campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp: “Give me my phone back, senator” exclaimed the young man who wants the government to take other people’s property: So it’s only OK if the government takes someone else’s property and not your own? WEIRD! Also, these are the people who are pissed at Sen. Perdue right now: It’s going to be a really, really short “Revolution” if this is how they act. Sen. Perdue did quickly...

    For instance, the system can be used to capture beeps produced by a scanner and the rustling of bags at checkout to find out the number of items in a transaction or even the number of bags used. More alarmingly, the patent mentions that the system could be used to listen to guests' conversations to determine the lengths of checkout lines. "Additionally, the sound sensors can capture audio of conversations between guests and an employee stationed at the terminal," the patent states. "The system can process the audio of the conversation to determine whether the employee stationed at the terminal...

    Commentary: The Ideology of Evil October 14, 2018 Admin by Pedro Gonzalez Michael Anton recently joined Tucker Carlson on Fox News to discuss an American Greatness column, “The Gillibrand Standard.” Anton argues that the Left poses a grave threat to our institutions, our country, and to decency and truth itself. Toward the end of the segment, Carlson asked, what does it say about those who claim that impartiality does not matter? “That power is everything,” Anton replied. Carlson concluded by remarking that the leftist drive for power for the sake of power is the product of a “secular worldview.” But...

I didn’t know I was on JC Penny’s WiFi (I was not in the store). Can’t quite figure out what word has been banned... Free? Republic? No wonder they’re going out of business.

    When the history of the 2018 midterms is written, there will be a chapter on missed opportunities for Democrats. Some may wonder if they should have spent so much money supporting Beto O’Rourke in Texas, or whether Heidi Heitkamp was doomed from the start in North Dakota. One painful question for progressives will be whether it was a good idea to spend millions trying to unseat House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes. The Los Angeles Times reports that Democrat Andrew Janz, a first-time candidate, raised $4.3 million in three months, a sum it calls “a staggering amount in a district...

    ERIE, Pa. — Jason Vogel is fired up to vote. He says his passion crystallized two weeks ago when he saw just how chaotic Washington would be if the Democrats seized power in Congress. When Democratic senators smeared Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as an attempted rapist without proof, and angry protestors stormed the Capitol, he says he grew increasingly concerned. “Hard to imagine that occurring every day, but you begin to realize that is exactly what would happen if I didn’t turn out to vote”. Vogel is with his family at the Erie Insurance Arena to rally for Trump...

    Everybody loves the Apocalypse. The idea of the end of the world, the more imminent the better, has always had enthusiastic popular support. For as long as we’ve enjoyed life on this delightful Earth there has been a morose and righteous sect of one sort or another telling us the lease was nearly up, the doomsday bailiff coming any minute now to shut things down forever. And whether from the abrasive thrill of the message, or the melodrama of the scenario, people have lapped it up. Indeed there is a whole category of philosophy devoted to that time when the...

    Then, Lemon then took issue with those who sent cameras to the event. “This has nothing to do with being liberal or a conservative,” he said. “This has to do with honesty. And we have to stop pretending, sitting here on these CNN panels or whatever network panels, and pretending like this is normal and let’s have this conversation about Kanye West. Who cares? Why are you sending cameras to the Oval Office for Kanye West?” Near the end of his remarks, Lemon said the artist changed after the death of his mother, remarking his mom would have been disturbed...
