    What would you say ministry ^ | Jan 18, 2020 | Joseph Backholm
    VIDEO SUMMARY Joseph Backholm is in Washington D.C. for the 2020 Women’s March. The question he poses at the march seems relatively simple, “What is a woman?” but maybe this question is harder to answer than we thought.

    It is a truism in American politics that Democrats cheat.Dead voters, repeating voters, voters with false IDs, and the new angle of “ballot harvesting” are just some of the ways that the leftist party has devised to subvert the will of the American people. Historians, even liberal ones, now mostly agree that Democrat John F. Kennedy stole the 1960 presidential election from then-Vice President and Republican standard-bearer Richard Nixon in Texas and Illinois by using the political machines of Kennedy’s own running-mate, Lyndon Johnson, and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley to add voters to the Democrats’ count and suppress the GOP...

    I remember well the first Trump campaign, and how many Evangelicals (or so-called) were vehemently against him. None of these people openly said that they were voting for Hillary. But they actually were casting votes for her by withholding votes from President Trump. I also remember the night of the election results. My husband refused to watch. He believed the polls. I did not. Lying is like breathing to the Left. CNN and the rest of the fake news club were throwing bogus numbers at the public in hopes of discouraging Conservative voters to just stay home because their votes...

    London (CNN) The House of Commons has voted overwhelmingly in favor of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Brexit deal, finally paving the way for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union later this month after more than four decades of membership. The deal has cleared its biggest hurdle with the vote that followed a third reading in Parliament, in which 330 voted for and 231 against, putting an end to three years of political wrangling following the 2016 Brexit referendum. Thursday was the last opportunity for MPs to reject the bill before it is sent to the House of Lords,...

    “For me, once I saw the policies that President Obama pushed in the back half of his presidency just — it left a bad taste in my mouth,” said Former NFL player Jack Brewer during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Saturday. Brewer predicted that a “black awakening” would lead to President Trump garnering more than 20 percent of the black vote in 2020. “And then I really started being awakening [sic] to what was happening with the Democratic Party — making so many promises but then abandoning the community that I worked so hard in.”

    Republican senators Warren Daniel and Joyce Krawiec released a joint statement on the court order. "An overwhelming majority of North Carolina voters amended the state Constitution to require voter ID, and an unelected judge just suppressed their votes. The bill to implement that amendment was passed by a bipartisan supermajority and was even sponsored by a Democrat. It provides more ways to comply with the ID requirement than almost any state in the country, including issuing free IDs. We urge the Attorney General's office and the State Board of Elections to immediately appeal this decision, since this vote-suppressing judge won't...

The bill would also ban an extension of the transition period - during which the UK is out of the EU but follows many of its rules - past 2020. The PM said the country was now "one step closer to getting Brexit done".

Max Rose, Antonio Delgado, and Anthony Brindisi and New Jersey Reps. Jeff Van Drew, Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, and Mikie Sherrill - represent districts that voted for President Trump in 2016 but swung into the Democrats’ column in the midterm election. Now the rookies must choose which of their voters to piss off. “The luckiest guys in America this week are probably pollsters being paid to do polls...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Judiciary Committee abruptly postponed a historic vote late Thursday on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, shutting down a nearly 14-hour session that dragged with partisanship but had been expected to end with the formal charges being sent to the full House for a vote next week. Approval of the two charges against the president is still expected Friday in the committee. But the sudden turn punctuated the deep split in the Congress, and the nation, over impeaching the president. The committee, made up of some of the most strident lawmakers, clashed all day...

    Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear vowed during his inaugural address Tuesday to restore voting rights to more than 100,000 people convicted of felonies. "My faith teaches me to treat others with dignity and respect. My faith also teaches forgiveness," Beshear, a Democrat, said during his speech from the steps of the Kentucky capital in Frankfort. "That's why on Thursday, I will sign an executive order restoring voting rights to over 100,000 men and women who have done wrong in the past but are doing right now." "They deserve to participate in our great democracy," Beshear added. "By taking this step, by...

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is rushing the impeachment vote to the floor of the House before the Christmas recess to keep wavering Democrats in key battleground districts away from their constituents, the majority of whom are potentially uncomfortable with impeaching the president. “House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump over his contacts with Ukraine: Abuse of power and obstruction of Congress,” Breitbart News Network reported.

    The Daily Signal ^ | November 26, 2019 | Fred Lucas
    The president’s critics thought his presidency was illegitimate to begin with. His Cabinet members changed frequently. Mainly based on policy disagreements, members of Congress demanded his ouster. Some lawmakers were willing to toss out constitutional norms based on what they said was the president’s “ignorance of the interest and true policy of this Government, and want of qualification for the discharge of the important duties” of his office. But we’re talking 1843, not 2019. In the midst of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry targeting President Donald Trump, many pundits make comparisons to the impeachments of Presidents Andrew Johnson in 1868 and...

    One poll could be an outlier, but when two resected polls find the same outcome, it’s time to realize that, most likely, something serious is going on. Rasmussen, whose own daily tracking poll revealed that 34% of black likely voters support President Trump, was initially cautious about interpreting that result, as this response to a tweet by Dineen Borelli shows:

    This is a current lose/lose for Schiff-for-brains, and a win/win for Trump. Despite the media going on TV each night telling us that each witness said "OMG THERE WAS A QUID-PRO-QUO" each witness actually said "There was no quid-pro-quo"... It was only their opinions about something they heard from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from another Trump was messing around. So, if they vote to impeach, Trump goes to the Senate and calls them ALL as witlesses... (<~~ get it?) -even Shifty Schiffhead, and the 'whistleblower'. He will ask if they coordinated in advance,...

    I live in Fairfax County, Virginia, which has the 10th-largest public school district in the nation, but I never focused on our public schools. My kids go to Catholic schools, and that was the center of our universe. I never focused, that is, until I heard that the Fairfax County School Board voted to let boys into the girls’ bathrooms. The vote was 10-1. Was there only one sane person on the Fairfax County School Board? I had to find out. So I began attending school board meetings. And there I saw moms and dads begging the school board to...
