    Emotions ran high at a San Jose, Calif. community meeting this week where residents questioned local officials about the brutal stabbing death of Bambi Larson, who was allegedly killed by an undocumented immigrant wanted by federal immigration officials for deportation. Authorities said Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza – a native of El Salvador with a long criminal history and admitted gang ties -- stalked Larson, 59, before the February attack in her home.

    Last week, Americans United for Life filed a "friend of the court" brief on behalf of a group of 77 Members of Congress in the en banc Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, supporting Texas's decision to defund Planned Parenthood under its State Medicaid program. The case, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas v. Phillips, arose after Texas disqualified Planned Parenthood as a State Medicaid Provider when undercover videos revealed that Planned Parenthood was involved in illegal and unethical behavior concerning aborted fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood and some of its patients sued in federal court challenging the disqualification. A three-judge Fifth...

    One of the firmest rules in modern American politics these days is that candidates need to get out there and define themselves before somebody else gets a chance to do it for them. That seems to be a lesson that hasn’t been lost on California Senator and presidential hopeful Kamala Harris (D). Her greatest fear clearly appears to be the risk of being seen as part of the old Democratic establishment in an era of aggressive young socialists influencing their party. She made that point clear when she showed up for church services in Atlanta this weekend, talking about the...

    Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who has pushed to impeach President Trump every year that the commander-in-chief has been in office, said Sunday that "impeachment is not dead," despite findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe showing the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia. The congressman tweeted that Mueller's report, which was submitted on Friday and the key findings of which were released Sunday, "did NOT investigate bigotry emanating from the Presidency harming our country." He continued: "The findings do NOT negate the President’s bigotry. As long as bigotry influences the President’s policies, I will continue to seek...

    FULL TITLE: ‘He LIED!’ Rep. Dan Crenshaw just DROPPED all sorts of mics on Adam Schiff’s latest ridiculous claims about the #MuellerReport Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Eric Swalwell and a plethora of other Democrats are spinning Mueller finishing his report (which looks to be a total dud) into some grand conspiracy by the GOP to silence the report so the American people can’t see it. We suppose they think this makes Americans question whether or not Mueller is somehow covering for Trump or that the president himself wants to edit the report to cover his tracks but c’mon already. Why...

    Democrat 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke warned from the campaign trail in South Carolina Friday night there may not be another year of America if the Mueller report is not made public. “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are...

    On Friday's edition of HBO's 'Real Time,' host Bill Maher said Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke looks "weak and ridiculous" for always apologizing. Maher called on O'Rourke to have a "Sister Souljah Moment" and call out the radical left and look like someone who can stand up and be the leader of the country. MAHER: I like him a lot... but he started off, the campaign, doing nothing but apologizing. I remember saying to him -- I'm not telling this out of school -- I said, you know, how about a Sister Souljah Moment where you stand up to the...

    Watch in slow motion as Democrats, goaded by the media, conspire to re-elect President Trump: Voters care about the economy and making education and health care affordable. And so Democrats are talking about … abolishing the Electoral College? Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren started the latest distraction at a CNN town hall on Monday. “Get rid of the Electoral College,” she said, neglecting to mention that this has zero chance of occurring in the foreseeable future. The media took it from there. On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Garrett Haake pressed former representative Beto O’Rourke: “Getting rid of the Electoral College: Is that an...

    Four years ago, Democrats were gearing up for a pre-determined outcome, the anointing of Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential candidate. Convinced they were “on the right side of history,” Democrats believed Hillary was destined to succeed Barack Obama, America’s first black president, by becoming our first female president. The only real opposition to Mrs. Clinton’s nomination came from Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont who had never previously identified as a Democrat. The weakness of Hillary’s candidacy was exposed in the 2016 primary campaign, when Bernie and his wild-eyed supporters very nearly derailed her nomination, being foiled by...

    Thursday while speaking at the Bermuda Executive Forum in New York City, former Mayor Mike Bloomberg mocked former Vice President Joe Biden and 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Beto O’Rourke. Bloomberg said, “It’s just not going to happen on a national level for somebody like me starting where I am unless I was willing to change all my views and go on what CNN called an apology tour.” He continued, “Joe Biden went out and apologized for being male, over 50, white. He apologized for the one piece of legislation which is actually a pretty good anti-crime bill, which if...

    EL PASO, Texas, March 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A video of pro-abortion congressman Beto O’Rourke, who is running for president, has surfaced showing him berating a Catholic priest for defending male/female marriage at an El Paso City Council meeting in 2011. The incident took place in June 2011 when El Paso priest Fr. Michael Rodriguez spoke against extending marriage benefits to same-sex couples during the public comment part of the meeting. O’Rourke, who had been serving as city councilman since 2005, called Fr. Rodriguez back to the podium after his remarks, seemingly to do nothing more than lecture him so...

  • Reduce Browning in Avocados & Other Fruits by Switching Your Knives

    Keeping apples or avocados from browning after being cut is impossible; within minutes of being exposed to air, these fruits (yes, avocado is a fruit) begin to brown. No matter what you try—adding lemon juice, keeping the pits in place, immediately sealing the produce in an airtight bag—brown discoloration always occurs. However, air is not the only reason that foods like apples, avocados, and lettuce brown: it's also due to the knife you're using. Why Does Browning Occur? Apples and other produce contain both polyphenol oxidase (PPO), an enzyme, and polyphenols, a chemical. Normally, these two are separated and do...

    I wish I could say that the worst thing about John Hickenlooper's CNN town hall on Wednesday night was the part where he talked about watching Deep Throat with his mom. The former governor of Colorado, who is one of roughly 173 declared candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination, explained that the porno-with-mom thing was not an accident. He said he knew that the movie was "naughty" but thought his mother might enjoy getting out of the house. Apparently after the infamous X-rated flick began she was "mortified." That poor woman... Meanwhile, there is Beto... I do want to know...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way. Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left. The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience)...

    The road rage suspect who killed a sheriff’s deputy, wounded a police officer and died in a central Washington state shootout this week was living in the United States illegally, the federal government said Thursday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, 29, was a citizen of Mexico who entered the United States in 2014 at Laredo, Texas, on a temporary agricultural worker visa. The agency had no record that Flores Del Toro left the U.S. or extended his visa after it expired.
