So without further ado, here’s the News you can Use for Thursday, August 31, 2017.
Conservatives are ready to stand up and fight for tax reform; the question is… does the GOP have the stomach for a fight that they can actually win?
The Left’s “inclusiveness” doesn’t extend to basic orthodox Christian beliefs or the people who believe them.
It’s about time. The tide is beginning to turn against Antifa and their cohorts as more moderate leftists begin denouncing the violent acts and totalitarian beliefs of the far-left fringe. More Democrats must stand up and openly, and loudly condemn the leftist mobs.
A statue of Christopher Columbus was beheaded in a park in Yonkers, New York. Apparently, the famed explorer who opened the New World to Europe is now a “controversial” figure in our America.
Attorneys General from 21 different states have filed a friend of the court brief asking the Supreme Court to overturn Maryland’s so-called “Assault Weapons” ban.
It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving college. Evergreen State College is ground zero for the war on free speech and the battle over PC culture on college campuses. The school has actively allowed their students to harass conservatives, and to silence dissent… and now they’re paying for it.
The embattled school faces a massive $2.1 million budget shortfall due in part to a drop in enrollment, and the institution has already handed out some temporary layoff notices as officials grapple with balancing the books.
Steve Bannon went from Breitbart to the White House and back again.
Doris Pollard of Norwalk, Connecticut celebrated her 107th birthday this past week and she’s got an interesting answer for how she’s done it.
So we asked her what her secret was to living a long, long life and she told us, “great genes, a carefree attitude, living a clean, simple life playing bridge to keep the mind sharp and a hearty appetite.”
Oh and a little scotch to ensure a “well oiled machine.”
Yes, those floating ant colonies you’ve seen in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey do really and truly exist.
