Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently made headlines for her extreme position on abortion. During a recent appearance on the The View, Clinton explained her support for Roe v. Wade by saying that an unborn baby has no legal rights and can be aborted right up until the moment of birth. Not to be outdone, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said yesterday, “I think we should expand funding for Planned Parenthood,” America’s biggest abortion business. I guess that’s one big business the Vermont socialist likes. But there’s more. . . Sanders also said, “I will use the Department of Justice
Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) signed a sweeping executive order last Friday restoring voting rights to more than 200,000 ex-felons. The move potentially expands Virginia’s voting rolls by nearly 4 percent. That is not an insignificant figure. Virginia’s 2014 Senate race was decided by fewer than 18,000 votes or eight-tenths of one percent. The year before, the race for attorney general was decided by 165 votes out of more than 2.2 million cast, or 0.007 percent. And in 2012, Barack Obama won Virginia by fewer than 150,000 votes or 3.9 percent. There is no question that this move overwhelmingly benefits
Highest negatives ever… That is a mantra we’ve heard over and over again from the left-wing media about the failure of the Republican Party to produce a winning nominee this year. It is meant to demoralize conservatives into prematurely surrendering the 2016 election. But I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Hillary Clinton. According to the Huffington Post’s poll tracker, which is tracking nearly 400 polls, Hillary Clinton’s favorability rating is just 40 percent. Her unfavorability rating is 55 percent. One year ago, April 13, 2015, her numbers were 47 percent favorable, 47 percent unfavorable. The more the
I have to give Governor John Kasich points for consistency. He went on CNN on Monday and doubled down on his view that values issues just aren’t that important. Referring to Mississippi’s religious liberty law, Kasich said: I read about this thing they did in Mississippi where apparently you can deny somebody service because they’re gay. What the hell are we doing in this country? . . . We had a Supreme Court ruling, and you know what, let’s move on. Not only did Kasich embrace the language of the left in grossly distorting Mississippi’s law, he embraced the left’s strategy for
Ohio Governor John Kasich was on CBS’ “Face The Nation” show on Sunday. When the controversy involving state religious liberty laws came up, Kasich seemed to belittle the notion that religious liberty is something worth defending. Kasich said he “probably” would not have signed the law in North Carolina requiring men to use men’s restroom. He conceded that religious organizations should be free to follow their faith. I’m glad to hear that. But it was downhill from there. The issue gets “tricky,” Kasich said, once businesses are involved. He asked, “Can’t we figure out just how to get along a
It is possible that Wisconsin may be Donald Trump’s Waterloo. After all, he did lose Waterloo, Wisconsin. While Senator Cruz enjoyed a five-point lead in the polls ahead of the voting, he over-performed and won by 13 points, taking 48 percent of the vote. Donald Trump finished second with 35 percent. Turnout broke a record set in 1980, when a guy named Ronald Reagan (perhaps you’ve heard of him) was running. Tuesday night’s win was significant for Senator Ted Cruz, not only for the size of the win, but what it means for the chances of a contested convention in Cleveland.
We told you earlier this week how Big Business, thoroughly co-opted by the sexual revolutionaries of the left, is attempting to browbeat the people of North Carolina and their elected representatives. Now we are witnessing the marriage of Big Government and Big Business as five agencies within the Obama Administration are threatening to withhold funding from the families of North Carolina. This is not a battle over the right to vote or whether the races can sit together at lunch counters. The issue at stake, unbelievably, is whether the women and girls of the Tar Heel State will be allowed,
Last week, more than 100 corporate CEOs signed a letter to North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory demanding the repeal of commonsense legislation that requires individuals to use public restrooms and other facilities that coincide to the sex of their birth. The list of signers reads like a who’s who of the business community — Apple, Bank of America, Barnes and Noble, Hyatt Hotels, Yahoo, just to name a few. In their view, the legislation upholding the public’s expectation of privacy in public bathrooms amounts to discrimination. Moreover, they insist that not allowing men to use the women’s restroom is somehow
