Trending: Former Australian Politician Gives Life to Christ at 85 After Lifetime of Atheism

Congressman Steve Scalise’s situation was far more dire than the media told us on Wednesday. He was apparently at “imminent risk of death,” but is now improving, though he remains in the ICU.

Conservative Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Liberal Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have teamed together to demand that the United States move our embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“Fifty years later, now is finally time to recognize Jerusalem as the one eternal and indivisible capital,” Cruz said at a luncheon hosted by the Orthodox Union Advocacy Center on Capitol Hill. “I believe it is long past time to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, where it belongs.”

President Trump canceled President Obama’s second Executive Amnesty, but left the first Amnesty in place.

President Trump also canceled Obama’s “one-sided” Cuba deal and has announced that he won’t life any of the sanctions on Cuba until the government frees their political prisoners.

It’s easy to see how Hodgkinson’s anger at Republicans might have been fed by a steady diet of toxic hyperbole dished up by progressives. It’s trendy now to frame disagreement with Trump’s agenda as “resistance.” The term evokes the French Resistance in World War II that carried out sabotage and assassinations. It implies that the properly elected president of the United States is the head of an illegitimate regime akin to North Korea’s or Syria’s. Such provocative, self-indulgent language may make those who voted for Hillary Clinton feel better, but it may also encourage someone like Hodgkinson to take the “resistance” to the next level.

Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) was dodging bullets on Wednesday but he was still clear-headed enough to explain to the media why we need the 2nd Amendment.

Free Speech advocates clashed with ANTIFA thugs on the campus at Evergreen College, where ANTIFA got violent again… surprising no one.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
