To me, those who raise the alarm about overpopulation sound like flat-earthers. Overpopulation is a myth from the 1970s, when there were 3.7 billion people and the myth was used to predict all sorts of catastrophes, including the starvation of hundreds of millions of people. It was also used to justify measures like abortion, eugenics, and […]


After spending the last seven years promising the American people that they would repeal and replace Obamacare, GOP members of Congress are getting cold feet now that they actually have the opportunity to do it. All indications are that, as of this afternoon, the current Senate GOP bill lacks the votes to pass. In the […]


Baby Terry, Baby Joseph Maraachli, and now Baby Charlie Gard — examples of big government stripping parents of their rights and ordering the death of children. By now hopefully you’ve heard of the case of Charlie Gard, an eight month old British baby suffering from a rare disorder. He has been in a London hospital […]


After this month’s shooting at a Republican congressional baseball team’s practice outside Washington, D.C., we saw members of Congress from both sides of the aisle come together in friendship and camaraderie. There were countless calls for civility, joint press conferences, prayer services, and many more inspiring signs that we are one nation. It felt like […]


The American Conservative Union has allied with Big Hollywood to launch a scurrilous attack on a startup company that’s trying to protect conservative values. In a “Call to Congress” letter on their blog, signed by an odd mix of right-leaning organizations, they said Congress should not update the Family Movie Act of 2005 to help VidAngel, a […]


After a primary on Tuesday that defied expectations, Virginia has its candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General in 2017. Virginia is one of two states that holds elections every year (the other is New Jersey), and this year will have important consequences. As we detailed in March, political analysts will be watching Virginia very closely […]


Politics is never boring in Virginia — a battleground state which is one of just two states that has elections every year — and last night’s primaries were no exception. (For some background on the races, read our preview from March.) Ed Gillespie narrowly defeated Corey Stewart to secure the Republican nomination for governor. Gillespie, […]


As I’ve covered before, many media observers have pointed to ESPN’s increasing leftward tilt as a reason for their hemorrhage of viewers and subscribers. ESPN has taken notice of this criticism, and yesterday, the sports network came out with a survey on the matter that confirms their bias — though you wouldn’t know it based […]


I normally skip the ads that play before online videos, but this one caught my attention. It was a clip of Bill Clinton giving a State of the Union address while he was president — and making an incredibly concise and eloquent case against illegal immigration. Based on the rhetoric, one would think one was […]


In the Democratic primary for governor of Virginia, it’s a race to the bottom as a pair of candidates try to prove who is more radical in his support for abortion. The two hopefuls, incumbent Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam and one-term former Congressman Tom Perriello, are attacking each other for not supporting abortion enough. Perriello, […]


The Democratic National Committee has just made another move to the left on abortion. Newly-elected DNC Chairman Tom Perez, who recently said that Democratic support for abortion is non-negotiable, has appointed pro-abortion activist Jess O’Connell as its CEO. O’Connell is the executive director of EMILY’s List, a political action committee which raises money specifically for […]


For all the Left’s claims to care about science, they sure don’t care much about science. Exhibit A: Rebecca Tuvel, a professor at Rhodes College, recently wrote an article in Hypatia, an “academic” journal exploring the logic of transgenderism and transracialism. Examining the case of Rachel Dolezal, the infamous white woman who claims to actually […]


This morning at a conference in the White House Rose Garden with conservative and religious leaders, President Trump unveiled and signed an executive order on religious freedom that he says fulfills many of his campaign promises to be a champion of religious freedom. But many social conservative leaders are slamming today’s order as “meaningless,” or […]


It was a bloodbath at ESPN this week as they announced they were laying off a staggering 100 employees — many of them prominent writers and on-air personalities. ESPN canned staff at various levels, from reporters to writers to on-air anchors. They cut employees across the board, but the losses will be felt the greatest within […]


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said back in February that he believed there would be another Supreme Court vacancy in 2017. As a former Supreme Court clerk and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Cruz is well-connected and highly credible when it comes to SCOTUS rumors. Today, the possibility of another vacancy got a big boost from […]


Sports have a tremendous potential to impact our culture and society, and they do so in a transformative way that transcends politics. Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier and helped usher in the civil rights era by working hard. Baseball helped unify the country and heal wounds after 9/11. But lately, the Left has been […]


Live by the court, die by the court. For decades now, the Left has been using the courts to force their unpopular, unconstitutional ideas on the American people, who would not accept them through the democratic process. Some of the most egregious examples include Roe v. Wade (abortion), Obergefell v. Hodges (same-sex marriage), and NFIB […]


In case there was any doubt that Senator Bob Casey Jr.’s (D-Pa.) transformation into a hard leftist was real, it’s been confirmed by his announcement this past week that he will vote against confirming Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. So why should Pennsylvanians and non-Pennsylvanians care? First, a little history. Casey is the son of […]


An incredible moment happened earlier this week during Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court. Of course, it will fly under the radar and be ignored by the mainstream media, but it was very telling. Watch this video (or read the transcript below): Senator Feinstein talked about the dark days before Roe v. Wade. […]


Ohio’s Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act officially took effect on Tuesday, placing Ohio among a growing list of states that ban the barbaric practice of late-term abortion. Scientific evidence confirms that unborn babies feel excruciating pain during abortions at 20 weeks (though there is evidence it begins even sooner). At this point, babies are so […]
