    Republicans on the House Financial Services Committee are seeking to postpone consideration of marijuana banking legislation scheduled to be brought to vote next week by the panel’s Democratic chair, Rep. Maxine Waters of California. Ranking member Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri wrote Ms. Waters on Thursday raising concerns about Congress potentially passing the Secure And Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, a bipartisan proposal meant to protect banks that work with marijuana businesses in weed-friendly states. “The impact that many state laws, which have legalized marijuana, have on the federal laws governing the manufacturing,...

    Seattle Is Dying. It's a harsh title. Someone on social media even called it a "hopeless" title. I'll admit to you that I wrestled with the name for some time. Too dramatic, I wondered? Too dark? In the end I went with it because I believe it to be true. I believe that Seattle is dying. Rotting from within.

    TALLAHASSEE - Without much debate and two days before Gov. Ron DeSantis’ deadline, a bill to repeal a ban on smoking medical marijuana has finally rolled onto the governor’s desk. The Florida House affirmed the right to smoke medical pot Wednesday afternoon, approving the Senate bill to include “smoking” to the language in the medical marijuana constitutional amendment. The bill allows patients to receive up to 2.5 ounces of whole flower cannabis every 35 days as recommended by their qualified doctor. The bill passed 101-11. Seven representatives were not present for the vote. DeSantis in January tasked the Legislature with...

    Why Democrats are Ramping Up Abortion Efforts By Philip Cottraux In the ancient city of Karnak is the Ashkelon Wall, an Egyptian record of the military victories of Ramses II. The wall is divided into sections but the largest primarily focuses on a treaty with the Hittite empire. On either side are epic depictions of Ramses’ armies victorious in battle; the siege of Ashkelon is most intriguing. As the Egyptians surrounded the city, its citizens committed the ultimate act of desperation, throwing their own children over the defensive wall in a massive act of child-sacrifice. This misguided practice seems to...

    What are "humanized mice" any sane person might ask? Remember the big flap when the undercover video from Project Veritas showed the leaders of Planned Parenthood callously talking about selling parts of aborted children? This was exposed several times. One federal judge even ruled that the videos were authentic and not deceptively edited. Altogether Project Veritas released a dozen videos exposing this monstrous evil.

    On January 22, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law a measure permitting abortion up to the gestational age of 24 weeks for any reason, and after that point, if “necessary to protect the patient’s life or health,” that is, broadening its prior “life of the mother” law to one based on the broad Doe v. Bolton definition as overall well-being. On February 21, the Vermont House passed a measure that “would legalize abortion at any stage of pregnancy and for any reason,” as described by Alexandra DeSanctis at National Review. The House sent it to the state’s Senate....

    The NYPD is warning police officers about a possible threat from the MS-13 gang, particularly when they are off-duty. CBS2’s Dick Brennan reports that in a bulletin the NYPD put out this alert: “Members of MS-13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area as well as possibly Patchogue.” The bulletin says that the gang members would carry out the attacks on off-duty officers “in order to gain street credibility.” While the threat has not been substantiated, law enforcement experts say this cannot be taken lightly. “Whenever a law enforcement officer is being threatened, especially...

    MILWAUKEE, Wis., February 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Archbishop Jerome Listecki of Milwaukee condemned Catholics in government who approve radical abortion policies but also blamed Catholic voters who vote for “anti-life” politicians. Archbishop Listecki noted that New York approved a law that allows the abortion of babies right up to the moment of birth and after. “As some have explained,” he wrote, “even if the attempted abortion is botched and the baby born alive, there would be a right under the law to ‘euthanize’ the baby. Is this the witness to Christianity and its teaching that our forefathers envisioned for our...

    MONTPELIER, February 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Vermont’s Democrat-controlled House of Representatives voted Thursday to pass a bill many pro-lifers are calling the most extreme of its kind, as it leaves elective abortion virtually unregulated through all nine months of pregnancy. Last month, more than 90 House members cosponsored legislation to codify a “fundamental right” to “have an abortion,” like several other states moving to ensure abortion remains legal regardless of a future Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. “No State or local law enforcement shall prosecute any individual for inducing, performing, or attempting to induce or perform the individual’s...

    This week, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif) tried to bolster her prospects for nabbing the Democratic nomination for president in the 2020 election by alleging she can see the future. "Back when I was in college in the 1980s I had a glimpse of the future where I saw the rise to fame of Snoop Dogg and Tupac," she claimed. "This was before anyone, including me, knew who these people were. Then came the 1990s and both shot to the top of the music world." "Now I see two paths diverging depending on who is elected our next president," Harris said....

    When former astronaut Mark Kelly said last week he would run as a Democrat to try to unseat a sitting Republican U.S. senator in Arizona, the news sent liberal activists scrambling to try to come up with a candidate of their own. Left-wing groups urged Rep. Ruben Gallego, a vocal member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, to join the race to give liberals a more palatable option as they prepare for 2020. Across the country, those same liberal groups are eyeing next year’s elections with anticipation, hoping to prove that stunning primary season upsets in 2018, such as freshman Rep....

    “At that time, [marching] from Tirtza, Menachem subdued Tiphsah and all who were in it, and its territory; and because it did not surrender, he massacred [its people] and ripped open all its pregnant women.” II Kings 15:16 President Trump held a conference call with 4,500 participants on Thursday in which he reportedly referred to late-term abortions as “execution.” During the invitation-only conference call, the president discussed recent attempts by Democratic lawmakers to advance a pro-abortion agenda. In particular, the president discussed a bill recently signed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo which allows abortions after 24 weeks if the...

    Report from Young America’s Foundation, The leading conservative youth organization, looked at some 50 top colleges and found 250 examples of courses that question conservatism and Trump. Beyond the inane, identity- and intersectionality-obsessed topics, these classes advance a liberal agenda, malign conservatives and their values, and shut out ideological diversity,” said YAF spokesman Spencer Brown, author of the 25th annual Comedy and Tragedy Report. The reports on the courses, he said in a release, “peel back the shiny veneer colleges and universities place on themselves in the name of ‘higher’ education to reveal a stark reality: campuses devoid of intellectual...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) earned praise from “drug justice” advocates after criticizing a growing marijuana legalization and business model that is paving the way for white male investors to reap major profits after minorities spent decades in prisons for selling pot. She made her comments during a House Financial Services subcommittee hearing this week on banking services for the burgeoning cannabis industry as more states legalize the sale and use of marijuana. She suggested the growing industry was “compounding the racial wealth gap” by allowing wealthy white-dominated companies to gain a quick advantage in the industry. She complained that communities...
