    The pugnacious attorney is putting pressure on other potential Democratic candidates to move further and further to the left. Avenatti has called on Democrats to support expanding the Supreme Court to 11 seats, in order to ensure a liberal majority. The Democratic “nominee must commit to this or not receive the nomination,” Avenatti wrote on Twitter.

    At first, Safiya Wazir couldn’t believe what she was hearing. A second later, it sunk in – after a long day on her feet, Wazir, a pregnant 27-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, defeated lifelong Heights resident and four-term District 17 state incumbent Rep. Dick Patten, overcoming an opponent who said her lack of experience and status as a refugee would hurt her campaign. Instead, Wazir said those very things – as well as her drive to connect with voters through doorknocking, thank-you notes and election reminders – buoyed her campaign. “They were very excited there was someone new running for the...

Edwards is a Navy veteran who also served as a police chief and as chief enforcement officer for the state liquor commission.

The most prominent among them was the late Massachusetts Congressman Gerry Studds, who was described as preying on male students.

April 27, 2018 Daniel Greenfield aniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. A funny thing happened to the #MeToo movement in the Democrat Party. While #MeToo burned a fiery trail through the media, leaving behind the wrecked careers of top talent, after suffering some initial losses, the Democrats built a firewall by ruthlessly targeting activists. Their approach was eerily similar to that of Harvey Weinstein....

    Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she didn't know what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand "was trying to say" when she suggested this week former President Bill Clinton should have stepped down over his affair with Monica Lewinsky that tarnished his presidency. "I don't exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say," Clinton told host Rita Cosby on WABC Radio in an exclusive interview Friday while promoting her new book "What Happened." When asked if she could have been more supportive of women who claimed to have been sexually harassed by her husband, Clinton said each...

    On Friday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show’s hosts and guests spent most of their broadcast mourning the announced resignation of Minnesota Senator Al Franken from Congress in the wake of over half a dozen allegations of sexual assault against him. In a stunning display of hypocrisy, MSNBC’s liberal morning pundits went to extraordinary lengths to cast doubt on the women who have accused Franken of sexual misconduct, violating the network’s own oft-repeated standards for Republican and conservative politicians.New York Times writer Bari Weiss was even brought on to complain about how “some innocent people are going to go down” as...

    CONCORD, N.H. – Former President Bill Clinton’s name no longer adorns the Democratic Party’s major fall fundraising dinner in the state that made him “the comeback kid” and launched him on the road to the White House. The New Hampshire state party announced Tuesday that their annual Kennedy-Clinton Dinner will now be known as the Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner, in honor of the famous first lady who went on to serve as the first U.S. delegate to the United Nations. "We are proud to honor Eleanor Roosevelt, a woman revered around the world for her bold leadership and tireless efforts to...

    OSSIPEE — A worker at a Jackson inn has been charged with a hate crime for physically removing two patrons from the establishment because of their religion and perceived national origin, state and county prosecutors allege. Priscilla Protasowicki, 32, will face an “enhanced criminal sentence” if the two counts of simple assault are proven to have been motivated by hate, said prosecutors. The simple assault charges carry a possible maximum sentence of five years in New Hampshire State Prison. In addition, Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald announced he has begun a New Hampshire Civil Rights Act claim against the woman....

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Catalina Celentano used to hold training sessions for hospital workers in Lynn, Mass., to familiarize them with the cultures of patients from Cambodia, Russia and the Dominican Republic. When she moved to New Hampshire, she suddenly found herself in an ethnic vacuum. “I went from being able to speak Spanish every day to not speaking Spanish at all because there wasn’t anybody to speak Spanish to,” said Mrs. Celentano, who was born in Colombia to a Colombian mother and Hungarian father. “The only person I spoke Spanish with was a cleaning lady and she moved back to...

    A fiercely contested bill to make residency a condition of voting in New Hampshire was determined by the state Supreme Court to be constitutional Thursday, in a major ruling that clears its approval by Gov. Chris Sununu. In a 3-2 ruling, the court found that the bill, House Bill 1264, is not a burden on the right to vote, but rather a means to better organize state laws “in order to place voters and residents on equal footing as New Hampshire citizens.” The court’s decision, which came without warning, now sets up a high-stakes choice for Sununu. On Thursday afternoon,...

We also facilitated contact with Capitol Police,"...

    Several illegal immigrants were arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at a checkpoint established along a New Hampshire interstate this week.

    New Hampshire’s Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed into law on Friday a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors. Medical and mental health professionals — including the American Medical Association — say the practice to change a minor's sexual orientation or gender identity is proven to be ineffective and can cause psychological harm to LGBTQ youth. “Discrimination — in any form — is unacceptable and runs contrary to New Hampshire’s Live Free or Die Spirit,” Sununu said in a statement, as reported by WMUR. “If we really want to be the ‘Live Free or Die’ state, we must ensure that...

    CONCORD, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley says his phone’s ringing off the hook with calls from likely White House contenders. “There are so many potential contenders wanting to come up for our events, it’s just mind-blowing, the activity,” he told Fox News. Several potential Democratic presidential candidates are making trips this weekend to the state that traditionally holds the first primary on the road to the White House -- part of a wave of hopefuls taking advantage of the expectation that Hillary Clinton, who kept young candidates on the sidelines last time, is politically finished.

    The Donald Trump administration approved New Hampshire’s waiver, becoming the fourth state to implement work requirements for Medicaid. New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said in a statement on Monday: Work requirements help lift able-bodied individuals out of poverty by empowering them with the dignity of work and self-reliability while also allowing states to control the costs of their Medicaid programs. They help people gain the skills necessary for long-term independence and success. Sununu added, “Today’s announcement by CMS authorizing New Hampshire’s Medicaid work requirements is a transformative step towards a more thriving workforce.” New Hampshire became the fourth state...
