U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, along with the Secretaries of Labor and Commerce, recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Swiss government to collaborate in the area of workforce development.

In a move being applauded by the pro-life community, the Trump administration has halted a government-run study that was using aborted fetal tissue. Research for this first halted study had been occurring in a National Institutes of Health lab located in Montana and was set to study human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The lab was ready […]


With the 2018 midterm elections one month behind us, the 2020 presidential race is all but officially underway. Republicans fielded 17 major candidates in the 2016 election, the most in recent memory, but the Democrats may blow that number out of the water, with up to 30 major candidates who may jump in. Democrats have […]


Have you received your healthcare premium notice in the mail yet? I did. Next year, I will pay roughly $850 more for the same Obamacare plan that I have this year. No, thankfully, my health has not grown materially worse. In fact, I am near-certain the only expense my insurance company picked up this past […]


As the push for more school-based mental health intervention increases after recent high profile school shootings, one particularly controversial and inaccurate mental health screening instrument, “TeenScreen”, is starting to make a comeback. Developed by Dr. David Schaffer and other psychiatrists at Columbia University, TeenScreen is a 14-question computerized survey that was heavily used in as […]


As a potential government shutdown looms on the horizon, one of the most highly discussed budget issues is whether or not Planned Parenthood should continue to receive taxpayer funding. If a new funding deal is not passed soon, the federal government is scheduled to shut down on December 7th. While the passing of former President […]


There are legitimate ways for conservatives and Republicans to be critical of Donald Trump. We saw a lot of it during the last presidential primaries, though most on the Right overcame their objections to Trump after he won in 2016. Nevertheless, there are still principled conservative critics like Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) who stand up […]


This article was originally posted at Townhall. Most public schools are still afflicted with the Common Core national standards. Paid advocates such as the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation continue to push Common Core despite overwhelming evidence of the slow-motion train wreck that has resulted – reduced student achievement by almost every metric. Fordham refuses even to acknowledge the bad news, much less […]


Regardless of whether you support President Trump’s tariffs as a negotiating tactic or whether you view them as harmful and unlikely to net a better deal, my Christmas wish is that the U.S. and China reach a pro-growth trade agreement before the holidays. A recent string of headlines makes clear that continuing the ‘economic cold […]


Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave the pro-life movement even more to be thankful for this year, releasing a report that shows abortion rates have hit a decade low. Data collected for the most recent report shows trends from 2006 to 2015, the last year surveyed. Over those years, the […]


Andrew Pollack — father of Meadow Pollack, one of the seventeen students and staff murdered in the Parkland shooting last February — recently posted a two-part video of a fight at Monarch High School in Broward County, Florida: Here is part 1 of the brutal fight at @browardschools.

The Trump White House has poured much energy into making America more economically competitive with China. Yet while much of these efforts have been directed at changing China’s domestic policies from abroad, one secret for improving American competitiveness is lying right under our feet: harnessing America’s mineral resources. A new report authored by Dr. Ned […]


In June 2017, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit of a Minnesota mother, Annmarie Calgaro, whose then 17-year-old son was emancipated from her by a county and several medical clinics without any due process on the mother’s part. That case was appealed in July 2017 by attorney Erick Kaardal and the Thomas More Society and […]


After a contentious midterm election season, conservatives and leftists have finally found one thing they can agree on: Amazon’s HQ2 deal to open two new 25,000-person headquarters in New York and outside Washington, D.C. is a bad idea. To recap, Amazon launched its “HQ2” search in October 2017. Declaring that this new headquarters would be […]


The Ohio House of Representatives has passed an important piece of pro-life legislation, making it a felony for doctors to abort unborn babies who have a detectable heartbeat. Approved by a vote of 60 to 35 on Thursday, this bill classifies aborting a baby with a beating heart as a fifth-degree felony. Under this classification, […]


With the dust mostly settled from the midterm elections (minus ongoing attempts to steal votes in Florida), Democrats are celebrating their victory in reclaiming the House of Representatives, and Republicans are taking solace in the fact that Mitch McConnell’s judge-confirming-juggernaut factory just increased the size of its infantry. So while on the national stage it […]


“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism; nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,” said French President Emmanuel Macron last Sunday. He continued, “By saying we put ourselves first and the others don’t matter, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it great and what is essential: its moral values.” This […]


The outcome of the 2018 midterm races certainly did not lack for interesting results. Wins and losses for all parties, drastic surprises, and expected finishes — the results were a mixed bag across the board. In the midst of it all, however, several pro-life candidates emerged victorious, winning their respective races. Here are five of […]


The 2018 midterm elections are (almost) now in the books. Here is a brief review of the education outcomes relating to Common Core, Congress and FedEd, school funding, and school choice: Common Core There is much new data and analysis coming out about falling ACT scores under Common Core, the twin dangers of Common Core […]


Voters in Alabama and West Virginia passed strong pro-life amendments to their state constitutions in ballot initiatives on Tuesday. In West Virginia, where Joe Manchin masquerades as a pro-life Democrat and pulled off a narrow victory, voters passed Amendment 1 by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent. A 1993 state Supreme Court decision […]
