Affirm Foundation: Scripture Helps Parents Combat Trans Craze [+video]

In a final rule released Thursday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) surprisingly omitted a proposed change to bundle so-called “gender transition” procedures into private insurance plans. Dr. Jennifer Bauwens believes comments submitted by Family Research Council, other policy organizations, and thousands of individual citizens are the reason. “By backing off this rule, they don’t have to […]

VIDEO: Taking the Sting out of Babylon’s Cultural Quarrels

Ever wonder what the cultural weather will be in a few years, months, or days? Just ask the meteorologists at The Babylon Bee. I’m joking, of course. The Babylon Bee is a satire site, and prudent readers never, ever take a word they say seriously. But they do have a strange knack for nearly predicting future events […]

Taxing Their Patience: GOP Fed up with Corporate Wokeism

If you gave 1,000 American voters three tries to guess the top policy proposal of the Republican party, not one would answer “more taxes,” but many might associate the GOP with “lower taxes,” or “pro-business” policy. It might surprise them that a new document released by the Business Roundtable calls for more taxes, practically the opposite of […]

The Lie of Biden’s ‘Lifesaving’ Treatment

“I have this intense rage in me over the harm that was done to me…” — Julie, 27 When Julie woke up from her double mastectomy in the children’s hospital in Syracuse, she expected to feel elated. Instead, she only felt numb. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, she thought. Years later, she looks […]

A 40,000-Foot View of Freedom

Monday afternoon, airline passengers whooped and hollered when flight crews informed them the federal mask mandate was finally over. Crews and passengers responded to the news by ripping off masks mid-flight. Most commercial airlines and Amtrak quickly followed suit to drop their masking policies, as did rideshare services Uber and Lyft. Airlines “were urging that the mandate be lifted sooner,” […]

VIDEO: Under Biden, the Party’s over for Moderates

 Maybe to some people, Joe Biden’s fixation with gender identity feels out of character. But to others, who’ve watched the president undergo his own radical transformation in recent years, it makes more sense. The man who stood in front of America and defended the rights of little children to change their identities has, in many ways, […]

VIDEO: Parents Nationwide, They’re on Kids’ Side

Waukesha, Wisconsin conservatives went three-for-three in Tuesday’s school board elections, shutting out the progressive “slate” opposing them.

We Must Acknowledge the Damage Inflicted by Transgender Ideology

There are at least 24 international LGBTQIA+ awareness days in addition to Pride Month. Some of these days are Drag Day, Pronouns Day, Trans Awareness Week and Month, and Trans Parent Day. No other subject known to humanity has been afforded such a salute on our yearly calendars as the LGBTQIA+ issue. Of course, these […]

VIDEO: ‘Human Tsunami’ Puts Border on the Brink

Under Barack Obama, 1,000 people a day “overwhelm[ed] the system.” Anything over 4,000 was considered a “crisis.” So what does Joe Biden call 7,100 illegal border crossings every 24 hours? Just the beginning, apparently. The White House, determined to take sole ownership of the “worst administration ever” mantle, has decided to turn the catastrophe at […]

Would You Stay and Fight for America?

When Russia invaded Ukraine, laying waste to the country, the response of many Ukrainians awed and inspired the world — Ukrainians rallied in support for their country, taking up arms as their lives were put on hold. Grandmas, school teachers, and people of all walks of life volunteered to join the Territorial Defense Forces (TDF). […]

Twitter’s Plan Bee: Censorship

“This is real life.” To Babylon Bee creator Adam Ford, it was important to make that distinction, since even the world’s greatest satirists couldn’t imagine a scenario like this one. Twitter, king of conservative censorship, wielder of the all-powerful on/off switch, had done it again. In the growing genre of it-sounds-like-fake-news-but-isn’t, Big Tech’s thought police […]

With Ketanji, Biden Tries to Tip Court’s Scales

Biden’s pick is Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, a federal judge on the D.C. Circuit Court and a former clerk […]

VIDEO: Biden’s One-Pandemic-Fits-All Approach

The White House has extended the national emergency in response to the COVID pandemic “beyond March 1, 2022.” President Biden, who promised to “shut down the virus,” will celebrate the second birthday of “two weeks to slow the spread” by pretending most people haven’t resumed business as usual. Meanwhile, the disease is screeching to a halt, as […]

Conservative Success: Locally Sourced in 2022

In the four million square miles known as America, it’s easy to forget that Washington, D.C. is just a sliver. While most of the attention is focused on the noisy rectangle that holds our nation’s capital, a lot of incredible things are happening outside the District — especially on the issues we care about. From […]
