Seattle’s newly implemented tax on sugary beverages has been making headlines around the country this week — and not for reasons its proponents had hoped. This was to be expected. Unlike the Santa Fe, N.M., which allowed its liberal constituency to vote on its proposed sugar tax and was soundly rejected at the ballot box, […]


Thousands gathered in Chicago this past Sunday for the city’s ‘March for Life.’ The March for Life Chicago wasn’t simply a rally or a march but a series of events broken up over the weekend.

The Dangers of Contempt

by Shella Sadovnik

John Gottman, a marriage and relationship expert at the University of Washington, can tell in four minutes whether a couple will get divorced. He looks for one simple factor: Do they show signs of contempt toward each other? According to his published study, contempt was the “kiss of death” for relationships and nearly always led to […]


An amendment to the Tennessee state constitution that has been stuck in limbo for over three years was finally upheld by an appeals court ruling on Tuesday. Hailed as a victory by pro-lifers, this decision means that the 2014 ballot measure removing the right to abortion from the Tennessee constitution is no longer at risk […]


In the final days of 2017, Bitcoin captured the attention of global markets when the price of a single digital coin surged to a record-high price around $20,000. While the price of Bitcoin has since pulled back (to around $14,600 today), there is one market indicator that suggests digital assets will remain bullish in 2018 […]


As its revenue declines, Planned Parenthood is reportedly trying to increase business by moving into a new market: transgender hormones.

Good or bad, Virginia never fails to excite. As one of only two states to have elections every year, and a purple state, Virginia is often a battleground and proxy war for national politics. In 2005, a Democratic victory in the governor’s race foretold a Democratic takeover of Congress the following year, and the reverse […]


Planned Parenthood may be losing thousands of patients a year, but it is now gaining support from a new source — pro-abortion license plates in Nebraska. The abortion giant was recently able to obtain enough support to warrant the creation of the plates. According to LifeNews, Planned Parenthood needed 250 Nebraskans to request the plate […]


Whew. We finally did it! After an exhaustive year-long effort, President Trump delivered a pro-growth tax cut package just in time for the holidays. I am excited both that the passage of this legislation will increase American competitiveness and also that, after today, I won’t need to write any tax-cut columns for a while (until we go bigger […]

Liberal Republicans are reportedly plotting to ally with Democrats to bail out Obamacare — and to make matters worse, they’re doubling down on Obamacare’s worst excesses. The possible bailout, most commonly known as Alexander-Murray — named after Senators Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.), who have worked on the bill — would resume the […]
