After declining to speak at a Christian conservative gathering this week, Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., is facing pushback for previously speaking at an Illinois megachurch known for its biblical stance on sexuality and marriage.
The senator released last week 10 years’ worth of tax returns, which showed that he made about $1.7 million in speaking engagements over the course of five years from 2009 to 2013...

When he moved to Pennsylvania about five years ago, it was a coin toss which party Brian Heitman would register with.
No longer.
Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, Heitman, who is 42 and white, has become a reliable Democrat. Last week, he voted for the Democratic candidate in a special state Senate election in Pittsburgh’s affluent southern suburbs.
“A decade ago I probably wouldn’t have even noticed this election...

Many Black Virginia Voters Feel Betrayed by Democratic Party, Left in No-Win Scenario

Eva Siakam’s choice to campaign for Ralph Northam in 2017 was a simple one: He was a Democrat and endorsed by Barack Obama, America’s first black president.
But sitting in a stylist’s chair at Supreme Hair Styling Boutique in Richmond on Friday, she shook her head in disgust when asked about revelations that Northam wore blackface 35 years ago.
“I really believed in him,” said Siakam, a 28-year-old student. “To find out that he dressed up in blackface is disappointing. He’s shown his disdain for black people.”
Black voters who factored prominently in the 2017 election that helped Northam become Virginia governor are feeling betrayed over the scandals that have engulfed the state over the past week, leaving them with a less-than-ideal set of choices at the top of the Democra...

WATCH: Radical Feminists Share Stories of Parents’ Grief and Anguish Over Gender-Confused Daughters Who Undergo Transgender Surgery and Treatment Despite Parents’ Strong Objections and Warn That Transgender Ideology is Taking Over Everything

Radical feminists are unmasking the horrors young girls have experienced in transgender clinics in addition to exposing the abuse lesbians have endured for publicly opposing “gender identity” ideology.
Speaking at the conservative Heritage Foundation Monday, Jennifer Chavez, an attorney and board member of Women’s Liberation Front, a radical feminist organization, gave voice to several heartbroken parents whose children have come to believe they are the opposite sex.
Despite their parents’ objections, these children have managed to undergo hormonal treatments and surgeries that have left them mutilated and sterilized, procedures that were approved and facilitated by therapists, schools and medical institutions...

When 44-year-old Julián Castro officially launches his presidential campaign Saturday, he’ll be one of the youngest candidates in the prospective 2020 Democratic field. And he’ll be first — and likely only — Latino candidate.
That could give Castro an edge in a key early presidential state — Nevada has the highest percentage of Hispanic voters of the four early voting states. And it’s likewise an asset in California, which stands to cast a long shadow over the Democratic presidential primary now that its primary has been moved forward to early March.
Together, the former San Antonio mayor and former Secretary of ...

Rep. Nancy Pelosi Agrees to Step Aside by 2022 to Win Votes for House Speaker Bid

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised to step aside as Democratic leader by 2022 in an agreement with members of her party who objected to her becoming House Speaker for a second time, The Washington Post reports. Under the agreement, Pelosi will reportedly support a “three-term limit” for the top three House Democratic leaders. “I am comfortable with the proposal and it is my intention to abide by it whether it passes or not,” she said of the plan. The agreement also reportedly stipulates that a fourth term would only be possible if House members vote for it by a two-thirds majority...

Pastor Andrew Hamilton of Berean Baptist Church in Thomasville, Georgia, Who Predicted Trump Would Win the 2016 Election, Now Predicts That Republicans Will Keep Both the House and Senate and Accuses Black Democratic Leaders of Being Like the House Negroes During Slavery Who Were Charged by the Masters With Keeping the Other Negroes on the Plantation

Pastor Andrew Hamilton
Pastor Andrew Hamilton of Berean Baptist Church in Thomasville, Georgia, who predicted that Donald Trump would win the 2016 presidential election when others did not think he had a chance, predicted today that the Republicans are going to keep the House and the Senate during tomorrow’s midterm elections. He says he believes many blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, and white Democrats are going to break away from the Democratic Party because they appreciate the job President Trump has done in his first two years in office, especially on the economy with its increase in jobs.

Pastor Hamilton also accused black leadership in the Democratic Party, especially the Congressional Black Caucus, of being just like the house Negroes during slavery times who were often charged ...

Why We Need to Protect the Integrity of Our Elections

Voting is a fundamental constitutional right. Free and fair elections are vital to our republic. Voting is a right and a civic duty. Our Founding Fathers entrusted “We the People” to have a full voice in leading our country into the exciting future.

Every properly registered voter has the right to an undiluted vote. If someone else votes more than once…if a non-citizen votes…that dilutes your precious vote and undermines the integrity of our elections.
For eight years as Ohio’s Secretary of State, I protected our elections. I witnessed it firsthand, over and over again; elections are vulnerable to fraud. I could write a catalog of ways people try to “game the system” or overzealous political operatives try to gain an edge and rig an election...

In Absence of Obama, Democrats Say They Have ‘No One Else’ to Look to for Leadership

When former President Obama left the White House, he pledged to take a back seat to make room for other Democrats in the party to shine.
Nearly 17 months later, that’s proving to be an impossible task.
Obama drew headlines this week after a Politico report  revealed that he is consulting a long line of would-be 2020 candidates and offering advice to party leadership. And he drew another round of headlines when it was announced that his political committee, Organizing for Action, is revving up to help Democrats in the midterm elections.
Democrats have turned to the party patriarch as fatigue with the Clintons has set in, a factor exacerbated in recent days by former President Clinton’s tone-deaf comments on Monica Lewinsky and the “Me Too” movement.
The desire among Democrats for O...
