    A caravan of Central American migrants bound for the United States faced a setback Friday when they clashed with Mexican police as they tried to cross from Guatemala to Mexico. The caravan, estimated to be up to 4,000 people strong, originated in northern Honduras on Saturday. Marchers said they were fleeing high crime and unemployment in the country. The Trump administration has called upon Central American governments to stop the caravan before it reaches U.S. soil. On Friday afternoon, part of the caravan broke through chain link gates on the Guatemalan end of the bridge over the Suchiate River connecting...

    Arizona is trending blue. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) squeaked by in 2012, but he’s opting not to run for re-election due to abysmal approval numbers. It’s now Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally duking it out to replace him. The race has been tight, though the vicious battle over Brett Kavanaugh and his Supreme Court nomination seems to have generated a surge of support for McSally who is leading by a solid six-points. It could be an outlier, but the bad news hitting the Sinema campaign has been pervasive in the final weeks. She stretched the truth...

    TECUN UMAN, Guatemala (Reuters) - Hundreds of Central American migrants bedded down overnight on a bridge separating Guatemala and Mexico, many squeezed against a metal border gate, as efforts to halt a trek north by a caravan of thousands of people gathered pace under U.S. pressure. U.S. President Donald Trump has warned the Central American caravan must be stopped before it reaches the United States, and Honduras and Guatemala said late on Friday they were mobilizing to return Honduran migrants to their homeland. Earlier in the day, hundreds of migrants at the head of the caravan had poured through Guatemalan...

    Could Republicans do the unthinkable on November 6th and keep a majority in the House? Politicos Rachel Bade calls it unlikely, but not impossible. Bade hears from Republicans and even a few Democrats that the political winds have shifted enough this month that it might result in a slight GOP majority once all the votes have been counted. ....Just about every poll predicts it wont happen: Suburban voters are too fed up with Donald Trump, and Democrats too awash in cash, for Nancy Pelosis party not to seize the House on Nov. 6. And yet House Republicans and privately,...

    TECUN UMAN, Guatemala (AP) Central Americans traveling in a mass caravan broke through a Guatemalan border fence and streamed by the thousands toward Mexican territory Friday, defying Mexican authorities entreaties for an orderly migration and U.S. President Donald Trumps threats of retaliation. Arriving on the Mexican side of a border bridge, they were met by a phalanx of police with riot shields. About 50 managed to push their way through before officers unleashed pepper spray and the rest retreated. The gates were closed again, and a federal police officer used a loudspeaker to address the masses, saying, We need...

    The caravan of Honduran migrants has turned around Friday a day after reaching the Mexico-Guatemala border, according to a report. Some 4,000 migrants fled their lives of poverty and violence in the Central American country with the hope of making it to the United States despite repeated warnings from President Trump that he would deploy the US military to stop them. The caravan arrived at the border in southern Mexico on Thursday but turned around Friday, the Associated Press reported.

    If you get your news from the media, then you will have heard that Jamal Khashoggi was a heroic reform who sought freedom for the region, and was brutally murdered to the strains of hip-hop music by a legion of Saudi assassins. And it was all recorded on his Apple Watch. If you're interested in the facts, instead of the fake news, you probably already know that Jamal Khashoggi was a Muslim Brotherhood leader and an old friend of Osama bin Laden. He's being mourned by the media that backed the Muslim Brotherhood.

Just today, the Mexican government, and this is a very important step, requested the intervention of the U.N., the Office...

    Two Christian filmmakers appeared before the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul Tuesday to challenge Minnesota state law which they say illegally forces them to produce and create films expressing messages that contradict their core beliefs. Telescope Media Group owners Carl and Angel Larsen have already been threatened with hefty fines and up to 90 days in jail if they choose to disregard the law. The Larsens want to enter the wedding industry. However, the state's Human Rights Act stipulates if the couple creates films celebrating their Christian beliefs about marriage that marriage is between one man...

    Donald Trump threatened on Thursday to seal America's southern border with military force unless Mexico intervenes to stop the flow of illegal immigrants traveling to the U.S. from Central America. The stern, tweeted warning came as a group of more than 4,000 travels north through Mexico in the hope of reaching the United States, despite having no visas or other legal papers to enter. Trump blamed his Democratic rivals for the resulting chaos, saying 'they want Open Borders and existing weak laws.' He resurrected the claim that launched his White House campaign in 2015, saying that 'this large flow of...

    We went with the name Drive for 25 as an homage to a 2012 House Democratic slogan and to reflect the fact that while Democrats need to net 23 seats, they probably are going to lose at least a couple of seats they currently hold to Republicans. (snip)This year, Republicans appear to be guaranteed at least one pickup: PA-14, an open seat in southwestern Pennsylvania that is a more Republican-leaning version of the old PA-18, the seat now-Rep. Conor Lamb (D) won in a special election in March.(snip) Republicans also are targeting two open seats in Minnesota, MN-1 (covering southern...

    Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum graduated from an Oakland, California-based training school for progressive revolutionaries that has spawned a list of activists who have gone on to become the whos who of the far-left leadership world, with many taking senior positions at organizations financed by billionaire George Soros. In scores of cases, graduates of the Rockwood Leadership Institute founded or directed notorious Soros-financed activist groups, such as Black Lives Matter, Media Matters for America, MoveOn.org and the Tides Foundation, one of the nations largest funders of progressive groups. Soross own Open Society Foundations sent top staff to Rockwood for training....
