An Arizona State Museum worker points to baskets in the museum’s collection in this 2015 file photo. These were not excavated from Native American graves, as the items in Finland were, but are the type of objects typically found in burial settings.
The Hopi and Navajo are among 26 tribes that will see the return of ancestral remains from Finland, where the items have been held in a museum after being taken from Colorado almost 130 years ago.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday will confront a difficult issue of statutory construction involving the language of the nation’s premier civil rights law.
The Court will decide whether discrimination because of an individual’s sexual orientation and gender identity constitutes discrimination “because of … sex” under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Under the American separation of powers doctrine, the U.S. Congress is the institution that is charged with making new laws. However, Congress, hopelessly mired in partisan politics, has made no effort to amend…
I need a lawyer, or a foundation to take up this lawsuit. Let me know who is interested please…
This is my proposed lawsuit, against Facebook/Google and Social media, to make them abolish their algorithms, and any touching of any data, for the purpose of managing or manipulating it in any way, and just let the information superhighway completely alone. Be the host of Facebook for the world, and Google for the world, but don’t touch any searches or posts, or anyone connected to them. All users are to be left completely alone. Abolish all “community standards” or…
Republicans are attacking two Michigan Democrats who flipped GOP House seats in 2018 with an advertisement wave sparked by the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, but the House speaker plans a counter-offensive to bolster them.
The Republican National Committee last week began airing television ads in Metro Detroit targeting Democratic U.S. Reps. Elissa Slotkin of Holly and Haley Stevens of Rochester Hills, criticizing their support for “endless investigations” and “endless hearings” to the detriment of “fixing health care” and “lowering drug prices.”
ADL, Antifa and Koch: Toxic Anti-Trump League
by Michelle Malkin
The Anti-Defamation League is a joke.
Once a respected civil rights organization dedicated to fighting extremism and hate against Jews, the ADL lies in bed with violent antifa extremists and perpetuates hate against political opponents. The “progressive” group is now a brazenly partisan character assassination outfit headed by Jonathan Greenblatt, a Clinton/Obama operative and former George Soros-funded operative, whose contempt for President Donald Trump trumps all.
John Hickenlooper raised more than $2.1 million for his U.S. Senate campaign in less than six weeks, a record haul in Colorado that affirms his Democratic front-runner status in a top-tier race.
The cash total positions the former two-term governor as the top fundraiser in his party primary but it falls short of Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, who will report raising $2.45 million for his reelection bid in the three-month period that ended in June.
The Hickenlooper campaign told The Colorado Sun that 95% of the contributions from his announcement Aug. 22 through the Sept. 30…
In the summer of 1973, as a student intern in Washington far from my home in Mobile, I got a firsthand view as the Senate held its Watergate hearings. For a young person, it was an amazing introduction to politics, and I was fascinated by what I saw.
I followed the subsequent impeachment proceedings in 1974 carefully. Unfortunately, as the facts came out, it was clear President Nixon couldn’t continue in office.
During the Clinton impeachment drama, I was a busy father, attorney and part-time state school board member. I could not pay as close…

Green Independent member considers challenging Collins
SOLON, Maine (AP) — An environmental and peace activist is forming an exploratory committee to consider running against Republican Sen. Susan Collins in 2020.
Lisa Savage, of Solon, would run as a Green Independent Party candidate. She said Monday she’d provide an alternative to the political establishment that brought “endless wars abroad, impoverished us at home, and sold our democracy to the highest bidder.”
There’s another Green Independent, David Gibson, who says he intends to run.
If three or more candidates…
A few dozen backers of President Trump, including his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, took to the street outside the Manchester office of U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen Monday to criticize Democrats.
The Trump re-election campaign and local Republican activists did what they could to bring a Trump campaign rally feel to the corner of Elm and Wall.
There was music. There was Trump-like rhetoric from a bullhorn: “New Hampshire voters are sick and tired of these perpetual witchhunts.”
And there Corey Lewandowski, posing for selfies,…
Beto O’Rourke was the first Democratic presidential candidate of this election cycle to speak to students and locals during a town hall Sunday, Oct. 6.

U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (Both D-Md.), together with 49 senators and 123 U.S. Representatives and former lawmakers have filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Amy Klobuchar said Monday that she raised $4.8 million in the third quarter for her 2020 presidential campaign, a total that places the Minnesota senator in the middle of the Democratic field in fundraising for the third straight quarter.
Klobuchar has raised more than some rivals but less than top-tier candidates such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, who raised $25.3 million last quarter, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who raised $24.6 million.

Johnathan McCollar, the mayor of Statesboro, said in his opening address that citizens should be involved in the political process by not only voting, but by being active attendees of local political meetings.

ALTOONA, Iowa — After raising millions of dollars for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, Carson King will end up with a year’s supply of Busch Light after all.
Mike Schonhorst of Huxley personally bought 30 cases of Busch Light and delivered it to King on Monday. That is 720 cans of beer, which means King can average about two beers a day for a whole year.
Schonhorst, who owns General Insurance Agency in Huxley, said he didn’t do it to gain recognition. He wanted to give…
WASHINGTON — The White House published a rare Sunday night press release this week. It said that U.S. troops in northeast Syria will move out of that region, which opens the door for Turkey to launch an assault on Kurdish troops there.
For years, American forces have worked alongside Kurdish fighters to defeat ISIS in the region. There are about 1,000 U.S. troops in northern Syria who were patrolling the Turkey-Syria border.
U.S. troops “will not support or be involved in the operation” and “will no longer be in the immediate area,”…

Every seat in the house is taken at Tamale House East on a steamy Saturday morning, almost all by women of color. Some are there to quietly translate for their monolingual tablemates (both English and Spanish) the proud claims to power from the nationally known activists onstage, the calls to action from the women in the crowd, and…
