David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, released another damning video yesterday — which The National Pulse covered here — showing Planned Parenthood employees joking around about baby body parts and describing late-term abortions in horrifying detail. YouTube has now removed the video without giving an explanation for doing so. Let’s set aside the fact […]


File this under this week’s sign of the apocalypse: Mother’s Day should be about abortion. In an op-ed written for Time, Planned Parenthood CEO and abortion shouter-in-chief Cecile Richards hijacked Mother’s Day and ran it into the proverbial ground. Attacking the Republicans’ Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, which redirects taxpayer funds away from […]


It’s open war between Donald Trump and the liberal media, and the President isn’t holding back. In a recent interview with TIME, Trump unloaded on some of his fiercest critics: Joe Scarborough (MSNBC): I don’t watch MSNBC. Scarborough used to treat me great. But because I don’t do interviews and stuff and want to … […]


Since the night he shocked the world by defeating Hillary Clinton, left-wing activists have fantasized about impeaching Donald Trump. This obsession has driven many of these otherwise lucid individuals to lunacy as they desperately peddle baseless conspiracy theories about Russia hacking the election in order to justify their fervent partisan desire to destroy Trump. Looking […]


This is Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). According to Axios, the pro-Planned Parenthood picture on the right was taken less than a month ago. The anti-Planned Parenthood picture on the left? That was taken last week. Manchin is a Democratic politician in a deep red state trying to, as Axios delicately puts it, “walk a tightrope” on abortion […]


Last week President Trump’s nominee for Army Secretary, Mark Green, withdrew his name from consideration after several weeks of protest from radical LGBT and left-leaning groups. According to The Washington Post, Green, a professed Christian, was under siege for previous comments where he appeared to question the Left’s radical gender ideology: Among the comments that […]


President Trump’s executive order on religious liberty was an important first step. It was impressive to see the President today voice support for religious freedom and hugging the Little Sisters of the Poor in the Rose Garden. There is still much to be done on this issue, however. Our fight isn’t over. The executive order […]


Many conservatives who may have been unsure about Donald Trump during the campaign ultimately voted for him because of his promise to nominate a strong pro-life Supreme Court justice to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The data bear this out: 21 percent of voters said that Supreme Court picks were “the most important factor” […]


We all just saved thousands of dollars on our income taxes by switching to the GOP! (Well, maybe…) The Trump Administration unveiled the basic outline for the Trump tax plan yesterday, which they referred to as “the biggest individual and business tax cut in American history.” You can read their one pager here. The plan […]


When he was a presidential candidate, Donald Trump promised to protect the First Amendment and end the Obama Administration’s war against religious liberty. He specifically assured Catholics in a letter in October of last year that he would stop the federal government from suing the Little Sisters of the Poor over the Obamacare HHS mandate, […]


Morning Consult is out with a fresh batch of approval ratings for all 100 U.S. Senators. Check out the top three most popular senators, as rated by their constituents: 1.) Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) 75 percent approve 21 percent disapprove 2.) Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) 70 percent approve 22 percent disapprove 3.) Senator John Barrasso […]


Like many of our readers at The National Pulse, I have been following the United Airlines story obsessively. If you are somehow living under a rock and don’t know the details, here are the cliffnotes: United inadvertently overbooked a flight from Chicago to Louisville and, after boarding everyone, asked for four volunteers to leave the […]


Country music legend Charlie Daniels isn’t exactly afraid of weighing in on politics. In a relatively unnoticed tweet — Breitbart News first covered it — Daniels argued that, if the Left thinks “sanctuary cities” should be able to defy federal law on immigration, the Right should do the same thing and create pro-life sanctuary cities. How […]


After several long walks in the woods and months of sober self-reflection, Hillary Clinton thinks she has figured out why she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump. Clinton sat down with Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times at the Women in the World Summit to talk about the election. She listed off four primary reasons for […]


This is a live blog. Stay tuned for more updates as the day progresses. 11:30 A.M. At approximately 11:00 A.M. today, the U.S. Senate took a vote to limit debate to just 30 more hours on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. This motion would set the stage for a confirmation […]


Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) stated, in no uncertain terms, that the Senate plans to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court this week, whether the Democrats filibuster or not. WALLACE: “You have promised that the Senate will confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court by […]


As Dominic wrote earlier this week, the #FakeNews media has run with a ridiculous narrative that President Trump’s approval ratings have plummeted because of the GOP’s failure to pass the new health care replacement bill. However, polls demonstrate that this narrative is, in fact, misleading — voters are not blaming the failure of the health […]


President Trump is still unhappy with last week’s health care bill failure, and he’s found the perfect scapegoat to blame: the conservative Freedom Caucus: The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) […]


Yesterday, liberals on Twitter — and dozens of journalists — rushed to retweet a story from the Associated Press claiming that the North Carolina so-called “bathroom bill” law, HB2, cost the Tarheel State an estimated $3.76 billion in economic impact over 12 years: Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled […]


Today, the House of Representatives was set to vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which would have repealed Obamacare and diverted funding away from Planned Parenthood and toward community health centers that do not provide abortions. Immediately before the vote was scheduled to take place, after hours of debate on the House floor, […]
