    On the heels of the United Kingdom’s and Europe’s disastrous immigration policies, both Denmark and Italy are fighting back against open borders.Inger Støjberg, Danish Integration and Immigration Minister, recently rejected EU migrant quotas for 2018, detailing that refugees do not do enough to contribute to Denmark.Støjberg told Jyllands-Posten: Although we have gained significantly better control over the influx, we are still in the position that we are struggling to integrate the many refugees who have come to Denmark in recent years. Despite the fact that more refugees have come to work, there are still too many who do not support...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) may want to pack her bags and take a little vacation because this huge skeleton just fell out of a 1992 closet and is about to put a huge dent in her reputation. If you recall, Hirono was very outspoken when it came to now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the sexual misconduct accusations he faced from Christine Blasey Ford and a few others who turned out to be not credible, nor have real witnesses, or anyone at all who could corroborate any of the accusations against Kavanaugh. But Hirono was very vocal in going after Kavanaugh and...

    In a move to combat what it calls an obesity epidemic, Public Health England (PHE) is crafting rules to limit the size and number of toppings on pizzas. Dr Alison Tedstone, PHE chief nutritionist, promised that our efforts will go beyond merely requiring restaurants to add healthier options to their menus. The real problem in our view is that customers could still choose unwisely. If we strictly control what can be offered we can eliminate unhealthy choices so that the consumer cannot make an unwise choice. Public Health Minister Steve Brine said the Government was willing to do whatever it...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 17, 2018 | Susan Ferrechio
    Senate Democrats on Wednesday boycotted a Judiciary Committee hearing to examine a group of Trump administration nominees, complaining that the hearing shouldn't have been scheduled while the Senate was out of town. Republican Sens. John Kennedy of Louisiana, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Mike Crapo of Idaho, and Ben Sasse of Nebraska were the only Republicans at the hearing, which was called to consider six of President Trump's judicial nominees. The top Democrat on the panel, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, of California, had a scheduling conflict, a spokeswoman told the Washington Examiner. She called on Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to...

    Conservative commentator and outspoken Never Trump critic Bill Kristol mocked first lady Melania Trump for claiming she is one of the most bullied people in the world. Cry me a river, Kristol tweeted Thursday morning in response to Melania Trump's claim. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Melania Trump made the comment in an interview with ABC News during her first solo trip in Africa. "I could say that I'm the most bullied person in the world," she said. One of them -- if you really see what people are saying about me." She continued by saying her experience with bullying is in part what...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 10/17/18 | A. Dru Kristenev
    So, tell them again, Mitch McConnell and GOP swamp, why should Mississippi settle for a never-Trumper masquerading as a republican when they could send a verified conservative and supporter of Trump's agenda to Washington? The facts about the Mississippi special election to replace Thad Cochran have been completely misrepresented by the GOP Vote Red campaign. Making voters believe that the senate race is the usual partisan showdown, the GOP has pressured President Trump to endorse the governor-appointed candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith who is a proven democrat in republican clothing. The MSGOP even went as far as to coerce McDaniel voters wearing...

    Elizabeth Warren is the epitome of why racial preferences should be outlawed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) typifies the Democrat shrieking shrew who is angry all of the time. Warren, who falsified her job application to Harvard claiming she was Cherokee (based on her grandmother telling her she had high cheek bones), played the affirmative action card, and allowed Harvard Law School to call her the schools only Native American professor. Newly released DNA test revealed Warren may have 1/1024 Native-American ancestry. Yet she lied about her ancestry to climb the well-paid academic ladder.

    A choice whether or not to determine the future of America by continuing the 2016 American Voter Revolt. If youve voted in several Presidential elections in America, you may have, at some time, felt unenthusiastic about choosing between the political version of Tweddle Dee and Dweddle Dum of Alice and Wonderland fame. You had cause to feel that way. It wasnt your fault. Had you come of voting age in 1904, you not only would be dead now, you would have, throughout your life, missed the opportunity to choose between Presidential candidates representing two, distinct, major, political parties.

    NEW YORK -- The NFL is attacking the concussion issue on a team-by-team basis. At the owners meetings in New York on Tuesday, Dr. Allen Sills, the NFL's chief medical officer, said the league identified seven teams in 2017 that had a higher incidence of preseason concussions than the others and "did a targeted intervention with those clubs." Sills said that process involved wide-ranging discussions with the football operations staffs of the teams that included the design of practice drills and which helmets players were wearing.

    This story originally appeared on the website LGBTQ nation under the headline DC Mayor will pay for 100 drag queens to run a footrace through city streets.If you saw that without knowing the source, you’d probably guess it was from a conservative site, likely because the title openly addresses the fact that the mayor is using taxpayer dollars to fund a footrace for drag queens, something that is certainly outrageous on many levels.The fact that this title is written glowingly, not for shock value, shows you exactly how great the ideological gap is between progressives and conservatives.Conservatives have the wild...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) With debates like this, who needs debates? The only truly notable thing about last nights debate between Ted Cruz and Irish Bob ORourke was the persistent gleam of Richard Nixon-like sweat that clung to the Irishmans face throughout the festivities. ORourke led off with a line reminding the audience about the Lyin Ted nickname that Donald Trump had tagged Cruz with during 2016, but Cruz neutralized that by noting that that tactic was used no doubt on the advice of ORourkes pollsters, which is no doubt true. Naturally, that did not...
