Record Number of NFL Players Kneel – Here’s The TV Ratings After That Hissy Fit - The Week 2 NFL single-header window delivered an 8.4 rating and 14.5 million viewers on CBS Sunday, down 24% in ratings and viewership from last year on FOX (11.0, 19.2M) and down 14% and 13% respectively from 2015 on CBS (9.8, 16.7M). The 8.4 rating is the lowest for the Week 2 single-header since at least 1998. The first two NFL windows on CBS this season have both declined double-digits to multi-year lows. —SportsMediaWatch

Bob Richards of Glendale:. Congress gets 73% kick back in subsides in payment for their Obama Health care & their staff members.  No wonder they won't repeal or replace it.  Article 1, Section 9 clause of the Federal Constitution reads in part: .."No money should be drawn from the Treasury, but in consequence of appropriation made by law". No such appropriations were ever made. Un Constitutional. See congress-receiving-unconstitutional-obamacare-subsidies

Maricopa County Republican Chairman Chris Herring: On Friday evening we celebrated the end of Constitution Week with our first ever Constitution Celebration Dinner. With 340 Constitution loving Conservatives in attendance we put on a great party for the 230th Birthday of the US Constitution. Celebrating the Constitution and remembering our duty to defend it is at the heart of what it means to be a Republican. And we plan to make celebrating Constitution Week an annual tradition. If you couldn't make it this year we hope you took time to think about what the Constitution means to you and what you can do to ensure it survives another 230 years.

Another GOP Healthcare Plan Appears DOA (But You Never Know)
It isn’t over till it’s over, but the prognosis for the Republicans’ latest bid to repeal the Affordable Care Act is grim after Sen. Susan Collins
became the third GOP senator to oppose the measure publicly and the Congressional Budget Office estimated millions would lose coverage. Before those two developments, Trump seemed fateful about it on Alabama radio’s “Rick and Bubba Show”: “We’re going to lose two or three votes, and that’s the end of that.” Now it’s unclear whether the Senate will vote on it.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on the Alabama run-off election: "Congratulations to Roy Moore on his victory tonight," said McDaniel. "The people of Alabama are united behind the conservative agenda Republicans are championing in Washington. This message of support for President Trump and his agenda will be loud and clear when the people of Alabama head to the polls again in December."

CONGRESSMAN TRENT FRANKS: Yesterday morning at a press conference  held by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, announcing the Oct. 3rd vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the US House. Franks introduced the legislation in January of this year. Franks said: "I want to deeply thank Leader Kevin McCarthy and the others in House leadership for their commitment to bring this bill to the House floor next month. And I am sincerely grateful for everyone’s participation here this morning. Not so long ago, when authorities entered the clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, they found a torture chamber for little babies that defies description within the constraints of the English language where abortionist Dr. Gosnell was making hundreds of thousands of dollars by murdering and dismembering very late-term unborn babies; some even after they were born. Ashley Baldwin, one of Dr. Gosnell's employees, said she saw babies breathing after they had been pulled from the womb. She described one as 2 feet long that no longer had eyes or a mouth but, in her words, was making like this “screeching'' noise, and it “sounded like a little alien.''

      “For God's sake, Ladies and Gentlemen, this cannot be who we are in America. It is time for all of us to be honest with ourselves and each other and ask the real question. Does abortion on demand really kill little human babies? If it does not then I for one would vote to disband this press conference and never talk about it again. But, if abortion really does kill innocent and helpless little human babies, then those of us standing here in the sunlight of freedom also stand in the midst of the single greatest human genocide in history of humanity; with now, the blood of 60 million unborn children staining the very foundations of this nation. It is time that America recognizes and responds to the cries and humanity of these helpless little pain capable babies and the inhumanity of what is being done to them. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a step in that direction and it calls to all humane Americans to come together for that purpose."

Frank Riggs 2Supt of Public Education candidate Frank Riggs: AZ law (A.R.S. Section 15-506) requires school districts and charter schools to set time aside each day for students who "wish" to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.  Saluting and pledging allegiance to the American flag and to the Republic for which it stands should be mandatory for all public school teachers & pupils!  Here's the language borrowed from Illinois, a very blue state: "The Pledge of Allegiance shall be recited each school day by pupils in elementary and secondary educational institutions supported or maintained in whole or in part by public funds." Teaching that the United States of America is still the greatest country in the history of the world - the exceptional, indispensable nation (try to imagine the World without her!) - will never be old-fashioned.  We should cultivate in our children and grandchildren a patriotic love of country and profound gratitude for the rights and freedoms we all enjoy as Americans.  And we should never forget it's the brave men and women of the U.S. armed forces who defend our freedom and secure it for millions of others as well. We must restore the civic mission of our schools by teaching how self-government under a Constitutional Republic works and preparing young people for responsible citizenship.  As Supt. of Public Instruction - and as an Army vet, former police officer, U.S. Congressman and education leader over three decades - I will work to put Civics front and center in our schools.
