PODCAST: Wednesday at Bernie’s — Propping up Socialism

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has never lied about being a socialist. Where he’s truth-challenged is in defining it. Last week’s speech at George Washington University was supposed to change all of that. After weeks of preparation, his campaign was convinced Sanders would be delivering the grandest defense of the system since FDR. What it ended […]

Will Abortion Politics Give Birth to Trump’s Second Term?

The good news for Joe Biden? There are still 17 months until the general election. That could be enough time to move past some of his catastrophic mistakes. The bad news for Joe Biden? There are still 17 months until the general election. And that’s an awful lot of time to make more. Not many […]

The Most Dangerous Place in Illinois: The Womb

Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker (Ill.) swore he would make Illinois the most extreme state in the country on abortion. And right now, he’s one signature away from succeeding. No one thought an abortion law more radical than New York’s was possible, but the Land of Lincoln is proving everyone wrong. In an astonishing move that sweeps away […]

Biden Tries Boosting His Self-Extreme

There are times when the Democratic party looks like a formidable threat heading into 2020 — and other times, like this weekend, when people are wondering if their political strategists are permanently out to lunch. Initially, former Vice President Joe Biden probably stood out to a lot of people as a legitimate contender in the […]

Abortion and Trafficking: Two Birds of a Feather

Abortion and sex trafficking aren’t often brought together in the same sentence, but they have a lot more in common than meets the eye and doubles the devastation in many women’s lives.Earlier this week, our friends at Americans United for Life and Global Centurion hosted a briefing on Capitol Hill on the connection of abortion […]

California’s Sex Ed Guidelines Suggest Asking Kindergartners What Gender They Identify As

“It’s pornography.” That’s how one mom described California’s new guidelines for sex ed. Patricia Reyes, who spoke up Wednesday during a hearing in Sacramento, can’t fathom sending her children to school to learn about things that would be embarrassing for most of us to say out loud—let alone teach to elementary students. “If this continues, […]

PODCAST: Twitter — Excelling @Censorship

When the head of Twitter’s public policy department told the Senate he’d do more on conservative censorship, making it worse wasn’t what most leaders had in mind! Unfortunately, that’s exactly what seems to be happening — to pro-lifers, Trump supporters, and even popular parody accounts. Three weeks ago, Carlos Monje Jr. was apologetic for the mistakes Twitter […]

Liberals Break the Facts Machine

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) just learned what a garbage disposal is, but she says it’s American men who don’t know anything about plumbing! In a pair of incoherent tweets Tuesday night, the former bartender blasts the new abortion limits in Georgia by arguing that “Most of the men writing these bills don’t know the first thing […]

NASA Chief Criticized for Mentioning Christianity in Speech

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the First Amendment. Or maybe, after the spat over a speech by NASA’s Jim Bridenstine, it does. Thanks to the double standards of secularism, public officials can’t even talk about faith without making headlines. It’s no wonder, then, that when the head of America’s space program gave remarks at […]
