Number of workers receiving unemployment benefits falls to lowest level in 44 years

The total number of workers receiving unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level in 44 years to end 2017, the Department of Labor reported Thursday.

Altogether, 1.87 million people received unemployment insurance benefits in the last week of the year, the lowest such seasonally-adjusted mark since December of 1973. Benefits are available for up to 26 weeks in most states.

VIDEO: Pro-abortion student defends killing a 2-year-old child

It’s not unusual to see a college student argue in favor of abortion. That’s heartbreaking enough on its own, that students would feel they have to kill their own preborn children to safeguard their own futures. But one college student took it to an even more perverse level, stating that it should be allowable for children to be killed up until age two. And really, when you think about the pro-abortion position, infanticide is the next logical step. Abortion is wrong, and this student’s logical leap to the next step — killing children outside the womb — helps to illustrate why.

Sessions announces Hezbollah financing, narcoterror team after bombshell report

The Department of Justice announced Thursday that it is creating a task force to take a fresh look at drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations linked to Hezbollah after an investigative report last month claimed that the Obama administration turned a blind eye to such activities to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.

US slaps highest-level ‘do not travel’ warning on five Mexican states

The State Department unveiled a revamped travel warning system Wednesday, giving five Mexican states the sternest “do not travel” advisory alongside war-torn nations like Syria, Yemen and Somalia.

All five states — Tamaulipas on the U.S. border and Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero on the Pacific coast — are hotspots of drug cartel activity, either hosting trafficking routes or extensive drug-crop cultivation.

The new warning system designates the states as a “level 4” risk, the highest level of potential danger. Mexico as a whole has a level 2 rating, meaning Americans should “exercise increased caution” because of concerns about crime. But an additional 11 Mexican states got a level 3 warning Wednesday, which urges people to “reconsider travel” there. Mexico has 31 states in all.

How Elite Liberals Have Sold Out the African American Community

When hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their prey. They would synchronize their steps on the side of the horse away from their prey until they were close enough for a good shot.

A stalking horse had a double benefit if the prey was an armed person. If the stalkers were discovered, it would be the horse that took the first shot.

That’s what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America—stalking horses. Let’s look at it.

I’ll just list a few pieces of the leftist agenda that would be unachievable without black political support.
