Moana Patterson, a fourth-grade teacher at Valley View Elementary in Bountiful, apologized Monday for the incident last week, and explained why she had her student, 9-year-old William McLeod, wipe the ashes off his forehead, FOX13 reported. Patterson was placed on administrative leave as Davis School District officials investigate the incident.

A former Pennsylvania pediatrician is scheduled for sentencing Monday in the sexual assault of 31 children, most of them patients. Dr. Johnnie Barto of Johnstown will be sentenced on dozens of counts, including aggravated indecent assault and child endangerment. Prosecutors say he spent decades abusing children in the exam room at his pediatric practice and at local hospitals. Barto appeared before the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine nearly two decades ago on administrative charges that he molested two young girls. But regulators threw out the case and allowed him to keep practicing medicine.

A handful of leading Democrat donors recently told former Vice President Joe Biden that they would not raise early-stage campaign funds for him if he were to run for president in 2020, according to a report.

CNBC reports: Biden, who has yet to announce whether he will run, has reached out to leading financiers over the past week to see whether they will help him raise money for a presidential run.

During the first term of George W. Bush, I attended a Passover Seder. One of the other guests delivered a long riff about some non-Iraq-related conspiracy Bush supposedly had formulated.

He was the evil genius; Bush was his stooge. Thus, the left could have its cake and eat it too. That won’t work with President Trump. There is no Dick Cheney in his administration.

Other media outlets picked up the BuzzFeed "story" — creating the false impression of smoke where there was no fire.

Will the Baby Trump blimp once again fly in the sky over London? Buckingham Palace is expected to extend an invitation to President Trump for his first official state visit.

Prime Minister Theresa May promised an invitation for an official state visit after President Trump was elected in 2016 but as of yet a formal visit has not happened. In the case of Great Britain, the invitation comes from Queen Elizabeth. She will be the official host. State visits are not just ceremonial.

Do you think President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) was paying attention? The news from the southern portion of Mexico last night would indicate that he received the message loud and clear.

Key U.S. Supreme Court justices seemed inclined to let the Trump administration add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census in a clash that will shape the allocation of congressional seats and federal dollars. In an 80-minute argument Tuesday that was both technical and combative, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh directed almost all their questions to the lawyers challenging the decision to ask about citizenship. Kavanaugh said Congress gave the Commerce secretary "huge discretion" to decide what to ask on the census.

With President Donald Trump not playing the Democrats’ impeachment games (and rightfully so), states have done their part in fighting this administration. Washington State and New Jersey have passed laws keeping presidential candidates off the ballot if they don’t release their taxes.

Taxes remain another front in the ongoing crusade to impeach Trump. Democrats don’t have Russian collusion anymore; that was nuked by the Mueller report.

American jurisprudence is based on the presumption of innocence -- in other words, innocent until proven guilty. The accused remains innocent unless and until the prosecution can convince a judge or jury that the accused is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Exoneration is not part of this equation for it represents the exact opposite principle, namely guilty until proven innocent. This is an impossible standard as it requires proving a negative.

While there is nothing “inherently untoward about such arrangements,” as noted in the Washington Post, there is much ado being made in the anti-Trump media about who foot the bill for President Donald Trump’s family to join their father this week during his state visit to the United Kingdom. Unfortunately for the cabal, according to a source who spoke with the Daily Mail, his sons, Donald Jr., Tiffany and Eric, and his wife, Lara, paid their own way. Much of the overseas media was positive in its coverage of the president’s visit, as he presented himself as a strong, competent leader.

Twitter is aflutter with news reports that Maxine Waters got something right. But did she? Did President Trump “back off” a “bluff” about Mexico tariffs? Or did he, in fact, wrangle the win in negotiations with our neighbors to the south, undercutting Mad Maxine in the most brutal return volley ever? The drama began with just another ho-hum tweet by the left-coast congresswoman on Friday, when she wrote: “Spineless GOP Senators grew a backbone this week & finally stood up to their Dictator Trump on something: Mexico tariffs, also known as a TAX INCREASE on American consumers. Bet your bottom dollar, Trump will back off by the weekend. Just another bluff!”

A 22-year-old man was arrested this week after allegedly planning to carry out a terrorist attack in Times Square, the most popular tourist destination in New York City. Ashiqul Alam of Jackson Heights, Queens, was arrested after planning to buy a pair of 9mm Glock semiautomatic handguns. The serial numbers on the weapons had been obstructed. Alam was arrested as part of an FBI sting operation. As alleged, Ashiqul Alam bought illegal weapons as part of his plan to kill law enforcement officers and civilians in a terrorist attack on Times Square,” Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a public statement.

The legal debris field has been cleared and the objections of Native American and environmentalist special interest groups nullified by a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Washington Post reports: A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday ordered dismissal of the lawsuit by environmental and Native American groups, saying President Donald Trump had revoked a 2017 permit allowing the $8 billion pipeline to be built. Trump later issued a new permit, and the appellate judges agreed with Justice Department attorneys who say that nullifies the legal challenge involving environmental impacts.

Imagine being arrested and losing your home after two repeat burglars break into your house again and rush toward you with the possible intention of murdering you. This exact scenario played out in New York late last month thanks to the far-left state’s draconian gun control laws. A 64-year-old Deerfield homeowner was charged with illegal firearm possession and arrested after he used a gun he’d inherited from his deceased father to kill two repeat burglars. Then upon his release from a jail a couple of days later, he found himself homeless because his house had been condemned.

The Supreme Court declined Monday to take up a legal dispute targeting the inscription of “In God We Trust” on coins and currency from the Department of Treasury. Michael Newdow, an activist who filed the case on behalf of a group of atheists, argued Congress's mandate to inscribe the nation’s motto on U.S. money was a violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, which prohibits Congress from establishing a national religion. The phrase “In God We Trust” first appeared on coins in 1864, and Congress passed legislation in 1955 requiring all paper and coin currency to bear the words.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes President Trump's administration is a gateway to fascism.

Until 2019, all previous responses were delivered by contemporary senators, representatives, or governors. Since 2011, there have been two responses — one in English and one in Spanish.

Trump’s deviancy threatens the left because it shows people there is another, more direct way to get things done than the mutated and metastasized puffery practiced by the powdered wig disciples of a process of indirect diplomacy

The media outrage is itself outrageous. President Trump’s renewed pledge to deport huge numbers of illegal immigrants is inspiring anger, but it's hardly righteous. If, as a Homeland Security adviser has explained, the targets of Trump’s deportation plans will be those illegal immigrants who have failed to show for their assigned court hearings, then Trump is morally, ethically, and legally justified in deporting them. The tut-tutting chorus might as well spare us their faux moral histrionics. The immigrants Trump is targeting are people who have broken American law not once but twice.
