DETROIT — U.S. history teacher Matt Enochs and his eighth-grade class from Southfield Public Schools watched online together as the mob broke into the nation's Capitol building on Jan. 6. "I had students ask questions about the powers of government that I hadn’t heard before because they were watching it unfold ..." Enochs said. "One question from students: Who is going to stop this? It was a very simple question and very complex answer." That inspired Enochs to go back and review history books and textbooks during the times the government faced tumultuous times in the past. He told his studen...

Mark Mitchell, a pollster with the conservative Rasmussen organization, revealed on Thursday that American voters are "much less likely" to vote for a Republican than they were a year ago.
In an interview on Real America's Voice, Mitchell told conservative podcast host Steve Bannon that President Joe Biden's poll numbers had surged over the summer. Still, he said that boost was beginning to erode.
He also said that Democrats had closed the gap in the generic congressional ballot.
Earlier this month, Democrats were within one point of Republicans, who had led by as much as 10 points.
"Look at the question. If the midterm elections were held today, would you vote for the Republican candidate or for the Democrat candidate for Congress?" Mitchell said. "And, you know, when somebody loses a lead like that, it's a referendum on the party. Right?"
"So, people are very concerned about all these topics," he continued. "They look around and they see a lot of problems with the economy and they're worried about being able to make their rent payment or whatever.
The pollster added: "But they are less likely to vote for Republicans — I think that's a very clear signal — than they were a year ago. Much less likely than they were a year ago."

The managing editor of a military publication blasted Ohio congressional candidate J.R. Majewski for embellishing his military service record.
The U.S. Air Force veterans misleadingly claimed to have been deployed to combat in Afghanistan, offered a laughable excuse for the discrepancy, and then was caught misrepresenting his past punishment and demotion -- and Task & Purpose managing editor Jared Keller called him out.
"In response to that initial report, Majewski claimed that, despite his status as a glorified plane loader at a rank just one notch above entry-level, his ostensible deployments to Afghanistan were 'classified' and that the Associated Press article — based on his own military records — represented a 'hit piece,'" Keller wrote.
House Republicans pulled nearly $1 million in ad spending from Majewski campaign after the revelations first surfaced, although the Ohio GOP hasn't offered a response, and Keller said the candidate stands to lose support from the military community.
"Among active-duty service members and military veterans gearing up to vote in the midterm elections this November, the label of 'stolen valor' — lying about or deliberately exaggerating the details of one’s military service — may end up hurting the Majewski campaign more than any claims of 'classified' service can fix," he wrote.
On Thursday, WRAL reported that a community in Harnett County, North Carolina is up in arms over a Halloween decoration that appears to depict a man hanging from a tree.
"This display, shared hundreds of times on Facebook, shows what appears to be a fully-dressed man with his hands tied behind his back hanging from a tree outside a home in Coats," said the report. "Investigators with the Harnett County’s Sheriff Office tell WRAL the family says it was Halloween decoration meant to look like a farmer. Some residents say the display had racist undertones."
According to the report, the family, which is Hispanic, has taken down the decoration after it prompted social media outrage and an investigation by the county sheriff's office. "Investigators said the family took down the display after realizing the hurt it caused within the community. They go on to say there aren’t policies banning such displays on private property."
"Those who saw it in person said this hits close to home for families of color," said the report. "'My daughter is biracial — she’s Black, white and Indian, and I don’t want her growing up seeing these things,' said Jenni Byrd."
While this display may not have had ill intent, racist Halloween decorations have caused controversy around the country over the years.
In 2017, a Virginia Halloween yard display that appeared to depict a Black man being lynched triggered protests. A similar display in 2018 was put up by the owner of the Kickstand bar in Elizabeth, Pennsylvania, although the bar claimed that the hanged individual was supposed to be the Devil.
