    ANDOVER, Mass. - Investigators are hoping an autopsy performed Wednesday will help identify a newborn baby boy discovered in a Connecticut recycling plant. The boy’s identity is unknown, but investigators say it’s possible he could be from Massachusetts. Related Headlines Material found at the recycling plant was traced to five different places throughout the northeast and one of them was Andover. Andover mother Julie Bosworth was heartbroken to think the baby could be from her town. "It's horrifying," she said. "It just makes me sick to my stomach." Republic Services, the company that hauls trash and recycling for Andover, is...

    Democratic congressional candidates combined have raised more than $1 billion this election cycle, underscoring an investment in flipping control of the House and Senate in next months midterms. A Washington Post review of Federal Election Commission records found that Democratic candidates raised $1.06 billion through the end of September. The figure surpassed the previous high of roughly $900 million given to Republican congressional candidates in 2012. It also marks the first time since 2008 that Democrats have outraised Republicans in direct contributions to candidates, even as the Republican National Committee (RNC) has significantly outpeformed the fundraising total of the Democratic...
  • Breaking: Masculinity is not a mental health issue

    Good news for the bro crowd. (My apologies if I didn’t use that term correctly. I keep seeing it on lefty Twitter.) Masculinity is no longer a mental health issue, at least at the University of Texas. In 2015 the school rolled out a program designated “MasulinUT” which was described as being, “aimed to teach men how to reduce sexual and other forms of interpersonal violence.” You get the drift, right? Toxic masculinity. This drew plenty of derision on the right, ranging from mocking amusement to alarm over indoctrinating students into a culture where the concept of masculinity was associated...

Kayla Parker, 26, was arrested in Dayton, Ohio, and extradited to Pennsylvania to face charges of exploiting a child and other accusations. Her bail was set at 10 percent of one million dollars and her next hearing will be on October 26.

    This year’s high-stakes midterm elections are fast approaching, and much ink has been spilled about a surge in women candidates running for office. Unfortunately, most of the hype has focused on only one type of woman: anti-Trump, pro-abortion, and angry about it. What about the millions of women and men who are eager to see more protections for unborn children and their mothers – who revere the Constitution and want more fair, impartial judges like Justice Kavanaugh appointed? Who is running to represent folks who not only decline the pink hats and handmaid outfits, but are happy about the direction...

A.G. made his first knife at the age of nine in the family's blacksmith shop in Southeast...
  • Furious about prostitution campaign ad, Menendez calls opponent 'slimiest of slimeballs'

    Calling his opponent "the slimiest of slimeballs," Sen. Bob Menendez lashed out at his Republican opponent Wednesday over a controversial attack ad resurrecting old and unsubstantiated allegations that the New Jersey Democrat had once engaged in trysts in underage prostitutes. Accompanied by more than a dozen high-profile Democratic women at a press conference in Hackensack, Menendez angrily accused Bob Hugin of resurrecting false and salacious charges in what he called a "desperate and blatantly false ad." "These are lies. I know it, you know it, and Bob Hugin damn sure knows it," declared Menendez. "Hugin is spreading so many lies...

    The Democratic effort to save him may end up torpedoing their chances of retaking the Senate. The metaphors don’t get any better (or worse) than this: A van carrying Hillary Clinton, fresh from throwing her Me Too sisters under the bus this weekend, crashed into a parking-garage pillar on the way to a New Jersey campaign fundraiser Tuesday for beleaguered Democratic senator Bob Menendez. At her side was Huma Abedin, who is divorcing convicted serial sexter and underage girl stalker ex-Democratic representative Anthony Weiner. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the accident. But politically, damaged goods plus damaged goods equals...

    Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and Center for Arizona Policy Action announced a ground campaign to expose Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s extreme views on abortion ahead of the midterm election. Since the summer of 2017, SBA List’s field team of more than 700 pro-life canvassers has visited more than two million voters at their homes across Indiana, Florida, Ohio, Missouri, North Dakota, and Montana. The campaign is part of an historic effort to educate and mobilize voters for the 2018 midterm elections. “When it comes to abortion, Rep. Sinema could not be more out of...

    Nikki Haley’s unprecedented gains were something of a flash offensive In a televised press conference last week, while she sat next to the president, US Ambassador the United Nations Nikki Haley announced her resignation. It’s hard to see her go. Few American ambassadors have so distinguished themselves as champions of freedom. Both along the East River and across the world, Haley earned herself a formidable reputation as a tough and resolute defender of her country and its allies. She made immense progress in curbing UN bureaucracy, combating anti-Israel bias, and standing up to the international body’s amorality in excusing brutal...

    FULL TITLE: Democrats Should be Asked if They Support Snipping Babies’ Necks in Abortions Like Kermit Gosnell Did Whatever a person’s position on the divisive issue of abortion, one would think and hope that at the very least, people can agree that babies who are born alive, and are completely separated from their mother’s body, should be protected by law. Well, as it turns out, not even that protection is secure. About 13,000 abortions a year in the United States occur at or beyond 21 weeks of pregnancy. Phone calls with legal abortion clinics that I have commissioned and that...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/17/2018 | Monica Showalter
    In Puerto Rico, municipal offices not far from San Juan's mayor were raided by dozens of FBI agents yesterday, with lawmen looking for evidence of fixed contracts and falsified documents. An FBI spokesman told the Washington Examiner the operation was "pretty big" and the tips came from disgusted insiders. According to the Examiner: Agents were seen entering the Municipal Tower with dozens of empty boxes. The federal agents deployed to the third, fourth, 14th, and 15th floors of the 16-floor building, Osorio said. They were looking for any paper and electronic documents related to "corruption" inside the city administration's purchasing...

    Whenever Donald Trump talks about fake news, there are howls of indignation from the establishment media. We're told that the very mention of "fake news" is a direct attack on our democracy, that the alternative is "darkness," that it led to the dismemberment and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and that, yes, every once in a while there might be a typo, but if you mean the media intentionally report false information, that is dangerous demagoguery. I present CNN's Ana Cabrera. On Sunday night, Cabrera launched a premeditated, vicious, racist lie about President Trump, then proceeded to discuss the false story...

    CE car sales are down and EV sales are up. Most people know this much. Also, EV sales are not up by as much as ICE car sales are down. The two metrics are believed to be independent of one another. I believe they are related. When someone purchases a Tesla Model 3, that car sale is an EV and not a new ICE vehicle. So that is a first sale the ICE industry loses. Next, the new EV owner often trades in a used ICE car and someone else will purchase that car. Some number of car buyers will...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is defending her decision to release a DNA test and political ad asserting she has a distant Native American ancestor — even as the Cherokee Nation condemns her for it, Republicans mock her, and political analysts wonder if she has crippled any hopes she had of competing in the 2020 presidential election. “Donald Trump goes in front of crowds multiple times a week to attack me,” Warren told members of the Boston Globe editorial board Tuesday, referring to the president’s relentless mockery of a six-year-old accusation that the senator used to identify as a Native American...

    The Mexican government has sent 500 extra federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, say documents obtained by NBC News U.S. Customs and Border Protection is tracking the caravan as the Hondurans make their way north toward the U.S. border. Meanwhile, the State Department is trying to stave off that possibility by compelling the Mexican government to stop them at its border with Guatemala. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, and plans to stop the caravan will be a "prominent" topic of discussion, a senior...

    Making college admissions “test-optional” has been steadily gaining steam among elite and liberal arts American colleges. In late September, Colby College and Rosemont College joined the hundreds of other institutions that do not require their applicants to submit standardized test scores to be admitted to the school. Other schools that have “test-optional” policies include Bowdoin College, Bryn Mawr College, George Washington University, Sarah Lawrence College, the University of Chicago, and Wake Forest University. And now, the University of California system has announced plans to study whether including standardized tests adds value to the admissions process. Many observers, including students, scholars,...
