Now They’re Coming for Christ.

Black Lives Matter activists are expanding their calls for destruction of public and private property to depictions of Jesus Christ. Shaun King, a leading agitator within the Black Lives Matter movement, tweeted that “European” depictions of Jesus Christ should be taken down and said that this was a form of “white supremacy.” It’s unclear if Mr. King is actually black, having himself been part of a major racial furore concerning his lineage and how he presents himself to Black Americans. Nevertheless, King doubled down after taking heat by stating: “Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and

SCHILLING: If DOJ Needs More Powerful Porn Laws, Congress Should Pass Them

Pornography has been a hot topic in the news recently, and not just because of coronavirus. Over the past several months, there has been a growing chorus of leaders calling for an increasingly out-of-control porn industry to finally be held accountable. And as more evidence comes in, it could not be clearer that porn use is indeed out of control. The statistics are alarming. Pornography is now more available and popular than ever in history, thanks in large part to the internet. In 2018, the world’s largest porn site registered an average of 92 million visits per day and 5.5 billion

The Left Exploits Coronavirus to Open Borders and ‘Abolish ICE’

The left loves exploiting a crisis. Horrific school shooting? “An opportunity to ban guns!” Forest fires in California? “Let’s destroy American industry and pass a Green New Deal!” Coronavirus? “Abolish immigration controls!” The original “Abolish ICE” movement was popularized in by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) when she stood next to a fence of a parking lot and cried for the cameras.  Before @AOC hit the national stage & was just a fairly unknown House candidate frm NYC,she took time awy frm her campaign & came dwn to #Tornillo to protest the #tentcity housing migrant children.I made these previously unpublished fotos

SCHILLING: Cali ‘Conservative’ Carl DeMaio Supports Pro-Trans Ideology Legislation – Ditch Him!

Pro-family conservatives face huge opportunities and challenges this year. President Trump has been uniformly excellent on our issues thus far: life, judges, immigration, cutting regulation, jobs and the economy. Whatever one’s expectations were for this President on these topics, he’s over-delivered. So our first political opportunity and challenge is ensuring this President is reelected. President Trump can accomplish a lot, and has, through executive order. But we can help him be even more effective in a second Trump term with functioning MAGA majorities in the House and Senate. We need to win those races and take over those bodies, filling them with

Crooked Liz? Controversial Warren Bill Raises Specter of Abramoff

An American Indian tribe in Massachusetts with direct ties to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff is trying to bypass the federal courts and the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) to jumpstart a stalled casino project underway near the Massachusetts border with Rhode Island. Ironically, the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe has enlisted an unlikely ally, Senator Elizabeth Warren, to carry its water on Capitol Hill. The Mashpee Wampanoag began its quest to become a federally recognized Indian tribe in 1975. Such recognition is necessary for a tribe to operate a gaming institution on off-reservation land. In 2007, after hiring Jack Abramoff to

Uber Unfairness: Why Laws Punishing Ride Sharing Are Terrible Policy

This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. In her Liberty Minute titled “Can I Give You a Lift,” Helen Krieble exposes yet another instance of government regulating an area in which it has no business: Many cities have highway lanes dedicated to carpools — a simple way to reduce auto emissions and save gas. In Virginia, two sharp entrepreneurs using their own cars figured out that people would pay them to show up every morning to pick up riders. Lobbyists for the big taxi companies saw it as

Giving Patients a “Right to Try” Is the Right Move

This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. Government regulation is often imposed in the name of consumer protection. All too often, however, it backfires and ends up hurting the very consumer it intended to protect. In her Liberty Minute titled “Freedom Without Borders,” Helen Krieble discusses one instance of a regulation hurting the consumer: A charitable group called Remote Area Medical was set up in Tennessee to provide free healthcare to poor patients across the country. They found out the state had an old law prohibiting out-of-state doctors

Supreme Court Decision Lifting Ban on Sports Betting Is a Win for Freedom

This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation.  In her Liberty Minute titled “The Big Gulp,” Helen Krieble discusses a local government policy that many people immediately recognized as an egregious overreach: There have been many news stories about one mayor’s drive to ban large soft drinks. Nearly everyone thought the effort was a classic case of government overreach. I’ve never bought a Big Gulp soda, but I cherish my right to do so. We all understand the dangers of too much sugar in our diets, but most people
