David Bossie: Anti-Trump and anti-GOP mobs act like thugs, while Trump-hating media spare them criticism

Friday 23:42 GMT

Obsessed with spreading negative and often inaccurate coverage of the president – continue to ignore the dangerous violence, intimidation tactics, threats, bullying and harassment by the professional paid left-wing protest industry.

Record-low support for Angela Merkel's government

Friday 23:42 GMT

Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) and the Social Democrats (SPD) were each down a point from last week, bringing support for the government down to 39 percent.

In tiny Bhutan, known for its pursuit of happiness, democracy brings discontent

Friday 23:42 GMT

It is harvest time in this village in western Bhutan, and residents are reaping an unusual crop: politicians making promises.

Long before there were courses in happiness studies at U.S. universities and happiness curriculums in elementary schools, Bhutan led the way in placing national contentment at the heart of its policymaking. That philosophy helped Bhutan, a relatively poor country of 750,000 people, chart a unique course for its economic development.

Rep. Steve Scalise: Republicans keep getting violently attacked – Democrats should condemn this

Friday 23:42 GMT

We are less than 20 days out from Election Day and the shocking reports of attacks against Republican candidates and volunteers keep getting worse.

We’ve heard Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former Attorney General Eric Holder, all call on their supporters to harass Republicans. Remarkably few have spoken out forcefully against this violence, and what’s worse, some continue to stoke this hysteria instead.

Multiple Republican leaders in Kansas have publicly backed Democrat Laura Kelly’s gubernatorial bid – a blow to controversial Republican Kris Kobach.

Although neck-and-neck with Kobach, there’s fear among Democrats that independent candidate Greg Orman, a Kansas City businessman, could draw enough votes away from her to put Kobach in the lead. Additionally, Kelly’s campaign has promoted a list of 27 Republican Kansas lawmakers who are backing her over Kobach.

GOP using Nancy Pelosi as campaign tool in key midterm Senate races

Friday 20:02 GMT

Despite not serving in or running for the United States Senate, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is becoming the favorite foil in Republican Senate races.

"In Congress, [Nevada Democratic Senate candidate] Jacky Rosen voted with Pelosi nearly 90 percent of time," said the narrator in a Republican ad on the air in Nevada, which mirrors the national trend of attacking Pelosi in the country's most competitive Senate races – despite her not serving in or running for a seat in the Senate. "Pelosi to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants," claims an ad tying West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin to Pelosi.
