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 […]


As I wrote last week, Virginia’s statewide elections this November will be a critical bellwether on how voters are feeling about Donald Trump, the Republican White House, and the Republican agenda. Democrats will pour millions of dollars into the race, seeking to test their message in a purple state before the 2018 midterm elections. Republicans […]


It’s hard to underestimate the importance of the statewide elections in Virginia in 2017. Virginia is the epitome of a purple battleground state, with Democrats dominating the densely populated Washington, D.C., suburbs in Northern Virginia, and Republicans dominating pretty much everywhere else. As one of two states to have constitutionally-required statewide elections every year, it’s […]


The deciding factor for many reluctant conservatives to get behind Donald Trump was the Supreme Court vacancy left by the passing of the late, great Antonin Scalia. Trump gave a list of potential justices he would appoint, and despite hints that he would ignore the list and choose someone else, he did end up delivering […]


An international team of researchers based in England have released an incredible video that shows a 20-week-old unborn baby in the womb in stunning high definition. They are calling it the clearest ultrasound ever taken. In the video, the unborn baby moves rapidly, turning her head and taking big stretches in her mom’s belly. The […]


The Senator may want to check his dictionary.


Fox News reports on this breaking development: “In a pair of simultaneously released statements, the campaigns announced that Kasich would pull out of Indiana to give Cruz ‘a clear path’ ahead of that state’s winner-take-all primary May 3, while the Cruz campaign will “clear the path” for Kasich in Oregon, which votes May 17, and […]


Two new polls show a Ted Cruz surge and suggest Donald Trump may be having difficulty in putting away his rivals. A new Fox News national poll shows Trump at 41 percent while Cruz trails by just 3 points at 38 percent. Even more significantly, the first Wisconsin poll from Emerson shows Cruz in a […]


During the Fox News GOP presidential debate last night, moderator Bret Baier asked Ted Cruz a question regarding gay marriage and adoption and later asked Donald Trump for his response as well. You can watch both candidates’ answers and read the transcript below: BRET BAIER: Senator Cruz, the U.S. Supreme Court obviously declared same-sex marriage […]


While on The Hugh Hewitt Show yesterday, Sen. Ted Cruz was asked by Hewitt what he thought would be the effect of Donald Trump potentially skipping the next round of GOP debates. Cruz responded by suggesting that Trump does not want to debate because it is difficult for him to defend his record, especially when […]
