The Los Angeles Times editorial board offered some friendly political advice to Paul Ryan: “Drop the crusade against Planned Parenthood.” Anytime establishment liberals offer political advice to conservatives, a good general rule is: do the opposite. I have some better advice: Defund Planned Parenthood now. Today would be nice, in honor of David Daleiden’s heroism and as […]


Last Friday, the country learned House Republicans’ attempt to repeal Obamacare had been officially abandoned, at least for the time being. Paul Ryan later admitted their failure, declaring Obamacare to be “the law of the land” and that Republicans would have to live with the former president’s healthcare law “for the foreseeable future.” Since last […]


After last Friday’s demise of the Republican-drafted American Health Care Act, which would have, if passed, defunded Planned Parenthood, pro-life groups have called on Congress to prioritize cutting all federal funds to the abortion giant. In response, Planned Parenthood has declared today “Pink Out Day” in an attempt to show Congress how many women support […]


David Daleiden, the project lead of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the organization that filmed the Planned Parenthood videos and exposed the abortion behemoth’s inhumane business practice of harvesting baby body parts for profit, has been charged by a California prosecutor with 15 felony counts for his historic feat of citizen journalism. He faces […]


In a particularly disturbing new video released by The Center for Medical Progress early this morning, a former Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Arizona, Dr. DeShawn Taylor, is shown disclosing a number of gruesome details regarding what she’s learned from the abortions she’s performed: She explains, “It’s not a matter of how I feel […]


The Democratic Party took a beating in 2016. After losing the White House to Donald Trump as well as numerous Congressional and state-level races, Democrats have been forced back to the drawing board to determine what changes might be necessary to prevent further losses. Some of that soul-searching was on display this week, as similar […]


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 […]


In a recent New York Times interview, Donald Trump was pressed on whether he was a fan of the House GOP’s proposed border-adjustment tax; the President responded, “I am. I’m the king of that.” If President Trump has in fact changed his position on the border adjustment tax, we had better hope his tax plan […]


The GOP health care bill, which would have repealed Obamacare and replaced it with the American Health Care Act (AHCA), was withdrawn from the House floor without a vote last Friday after Speaker Paul Ryan failed to achieve a consensus. As The New York Times reported prior to the bill being pulled, President Trump had hoped […]


Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the passage of North Carolina’s House Bill 2 — popularly labeled as the state’s “bathroom bill” — which was passed last spring to overturn a Charlotte city ordinance mandating public bathrooms, locker rooms, and other facilities be open to use by persons based on their “gender identity.” Though […]


“I could not think of a more dangerous person to head up the Office of Civil Rights at HHS,” JoDee Winterhof, senior vice president of policy and political affairs of the Human Rights Campaign, said in a statement. He’s talking about Roger Severino, a distinguished Harvard law school graduate who spent seven years as a […]


Paul Ryan has admitted he and the House Republicans failed bigly. He lacks the votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, so House Republicans and President Trump have decided to move on to other parts of Trump’s agenda that might prove more popular. Ezra Klein is a liberal, but he hit the nail on the head about Paul Ryan […]


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, […]


It seems that all of the grassroots efforts to reach the Trump administration with Common Core-related concerns are finally starting to bear fruit. These concerns include Betsy DeVos’ pro-Common Core record, the disturbingly large number of Jeb Bush foundation employees and alumni staffing the U.S. Department of Education (USED), and the prominent decrease in the […]


President Trump showed some very good political instincts this morning with a tweet criticizing the House Freedom Caucus on their opposition to the new GOP healthcare bill: The irony is that the Freedom Caucus, which is very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, allows P.P. to continue if they stop this plan! — Donald J. Trump […]


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. […]


Kellyanne Conway Is an Icon

by Maggie Gallagher

This is the week Kellyanne Conway, a Jersey beauty queen, took Manhattan. She looks at you wide-eyed and laughing from the cover of New York magazine where Olivia Nuzzi points out the obvious: “Kellyanne Conway Is a Star. Not your star, perhaps. But that’s the point.” Nuzzi calls her “[m]ore what the press expected Ivanka to […]


Several states across the country have taken steps in recent weeks to provide greater protection for the religious freedom of their citizens. Both South Dakota and Kentucky have successfully passed state bills to defend the rights of religious groups and individuals, while similar legislation is also moving forward in Texas and Georgia. Earlier this month, […]


“President Trump’s approval rating hits a new low.” Thus proclaimed USA Today earlier this week, furthering the narrative popular in the mainstream media that Donald Trump’s presidency is off to a rocky start. It’s no secret that ever since Trump announced his candidacy for president in June 2015, his favorability ratings have been unusually bad — […]


While President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, has managed to hit a grand-slam so far at this week’s confirmation hearings, this hasn’t stopped well-meaning “Never-Trumpers” and principled conservative pundits from picking apart his comments. The double-edged social media platform known as Twitter is great. It has empowered everyday people to have a voice when it […]
