For nearly three months now, Congress has been unable to pass a bill funding the fight against the Zika epidemic. This is not because no such bill exists; the House passed one in June which would provide $1.1 billion in funding to combat the virus’ spread. Senate Democrats have blocked the bill, however, for the […]

(Editor’s Note: Danny Cannon is fluent in sarcasm.) On Monday, the American electorate received critical information it had long been waiting for this election— at long last, Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) told us who she would be voting for in November. Well, really, she just said who she wouldn’t be voting for, but at least […]

Last night at the Democratic National Convention, Tim Kaine attempted to make the case that Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy, a sentiment with which the overwhelming majority of Americans disagree. Amid a number of attacks on Donald Trump, Kaine laid out his argument: First, she’s consistent. … When you want to know something about […]

Last year, the Center for Medical Progress released a series of videos documenting Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted children’s body parts. They feature Planned Parenthood officials haggling over the price of a baby’s liver, discussing how to most profitably crush an unborn child’s abdomen, and a whole host of other equally horrific statements. One video […]

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been massively outspending Donald Trump on advertising since the beginning of this election, including in several key swing states. According to one report, as of July 13th the Clinton campaign and pro-Clinton PACs had booked more than $111 million on TV and radio ads through the election, while Trump and his PACs had […]

The federal government may have decided to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for her “extreme carelessness” with classified information as Secretary of State, but, as recent polling shows, the voters most certainly have not. Since the end of June, and particularly after FBI Director James Comey’s press conference last week announcing the decision not […]

An effort is underway to ensure that a call to defund Planned Parenthood is included in the official Republican platform, the Washington Times reports today. Pro-life groups will be active in Cleveland in the days leading up to the convention, holding rallies and even flying a banner over the city in order to “keep the pressure […]

The US Chamber of Commerce is upset. For years, they have shaped Republican policy, spending millions of dollars trying to push the Republican Party towards a business-first economic message that seems incapable of talking about anything but “job creators.” The most special of special interests, the Chamber is by far the largest lobbying organization in […]

For years, the Clintons claimed that they wanted abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare,” a relatively moderate position they stuck to so long as they considered it politically convenient. In 2008, Hillary Clinton agreed wholeheartedly when asked if America should try to reduce the number of abortions to zero. For “at least fifteen years,” […]

There has been increasing talk among pundits about the possibility of a GOP delegate revolt, in which the delegates to the Republican National Convention would refuse to nominate Trump in favor of . . . well, somebody else. It’s unclear whether this hypothetical candidate would be someone the voters have already rejected or someone who […]

How did a bill defending religious liberty, which passed the Senate 97-3 and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton, become so controversial? This is the question posed in an op-ed published last Friday by the Los Angeles Times Editorial Board, examining recent liberal opposition to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. The […]

Last week, Priorities Action USA — a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC — began running an ad in seven key states, seeming to target Christian conservatives who may be hesitant to vote for Donald Trump in November. The ad focuses on a Midwestern couple and their daughter, Grace, who was born with spina bifida. Attacking Trump […]

Undecided pro-life voters were given a rare opportunity on Friday to evaluate the two leading contenders for president, as both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump addressed their positions on abortion in depth during speeches given at events in the D.C. area. In attempt to reassure Christian conservatives, Trump spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual […]

Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has consistently voiced his opposition to the Common Core, calling it a disaster from the very first speech of his candidacy. In an interview earlier this week, his message was the same: “I like the concept of local education. I want to get rid of Common Core. I think Common […]

Over the weekend, the Libertarian Party nominated former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson for the presidency, with former Massachusetts Governor William Weld serving as his running mate. Now, some, including Johnson himself, are suggesting that the Libertarian ticket could be the perfect choice for conservative voters unsatisfied with Donald Trump. The Wall Street Journal published […]

Donald Trump has taken the lead over Hillary Clinton in two national polls released this week. Fox News has Trump with a three point lead over Clinton, 45 percent to 42 percent, while Rasmussen shows Trump with a five point lead, 42 percent to 37 percent. Furthermore, despite pundits’ predictions that Trump would fare poorly among […]

Last Friday, the Obama administration sent out a letter threatening public schools with the loss of federal funding if they refuse to submit to the left’s radical transgender ideology. That morning, Donald Trump responded to the directive in several television interviews, signaling personal ambivalence on the issue but stressing that it should be left up […]

Last night, on “The O’Reilly Factor,” Donald Trump doubled down on his commitment to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who are pro-life. This is in stark contrast to Hillary Clinton, who has consistently stated that she will only appoint justices who see Roe v. Wade as “settled law.” You can watch Trump’s full appearance […]

Municipal Judge and Circuit Court Magistrate Ruth Neely has served the small town of Pinedale, Wyo., for more than twenty years. She is well-recognized and respected within her community, garnering praise from local mayors, citizens, and attorneys for her fairness and impartiality.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are in the midst of making their final pitches to the people of Indiana before next Tuesday’s primary, spending millions of dollars on television advertising throughout the state.
