Back in September, I wrote about Donald Trump’s plan to win the state of New Mexico — something no Republican presidential candidate has done since 2004. The president’s strategy focuses on Democrats’ opposition to oil and gas development, which is the driving force of New Mexico’s economy. A new report out from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce […]


Government and education technology entities are moving ahead with efforts to collect more and more sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) on America’s children and their families. Here is an update on some of those efforts: Weakening of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) According to excellent reporting by Cheri Kiesicker at Missouri Education Watchdog, […]


This week, President Trump took to Twitter to announce new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Brazil and Argentina. Although the Trump administration has had its share of puzzling trade war escalations — including declaring auto parts a threat to national security — this is potentially the most indefensible one yet. Anecdotally, the most […]


The New York Times recently polled the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates on the topic of abortion. The results should be of grave concern for the pro-life movement. The survey was completed by Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Joe Sestak, Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang. […]


Tomorrow, we red-blooded Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving. We admittedly have many holidays celebrating our national identity: Memorial Day for fallen patriots, Veterans’ Day for those who gave their youths to freedom, and the Fourth of July to celebrate our independence. However, Thanksgiving is special because it arguably centers on gratitude for one particular constitutional right: […]


Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf vetoed a bill on Thursday that would have banned abortions based on prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis. Why? Because he believes women “must be able” to abort such babies. The bill was passed by the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania General Assembly the day before landing on the Democrat Gov. Wolf’s desk. It was aimed […]


In the midst of the impeachment charade, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and a number of his GOP colleagues introduced a bill to address mass shootings. However, privacy groups, particularly those who advocate for student privacy, question the larger effect of the bill. Is it really about mass shootings? Or is it just building a bigger, more invasive […]


One interesting takeaway from Trump’s impeachment hearings occurred when former White House national security expert Fiona Hill gave testimony on her conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin on fracking. The Washington Free Beacon reports: Under questioning from Rep. Mike Conaway (R., Tex.) at a hearing on the impeachment of President Donald Trump, Hill agreed that […]


Veritable droves of right-of-center commentators and would-be eminences are more than happy to sound off ad-nauseam about tax cuts and job creation. Those priorities are spoken about as if they are the only political issues that conservatives can win on. In 2018, before November’s midterm elections, a group of Republican insiders and strategists happily gloated […]


Unborn children who are diagnosed with Down syndrome can often be targets for abortion. A bill recently introduced in the U.S. Senate seeks to change that, making it illegal to abort a baby solely because of such a diagnosis. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) has introduced the Down Syndrome Discrimination by Abortion Prohibition Act, which was […]


Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has conceded defeat in the state’s gubernatorial race to Democrat Andy Beshear. The concession comes over a week after the election, which was too close to call on election night. Beshear led by just over 5,100 votes on election night, a margin of less than 0.4 percent. A re-canvass left that […]


This week, a timely new e-book was released making the case for why capitalism is the best system for spreading universal opulence. “The Capitalist Manifesto,” authored by supply-sider Ralph Benko and prominent Tea Party organizer Bill Collier, serves as an easily readable primer on what capitalism is while heading into an election cycle that may […]


Even while judicial setbacks in Ohio have discouraged pro-lifers in the state and across the country, the Ohio State Senate has been busy working on even more pro-life legislation. One such bill was passed in October, and the chamber passed an additional pro-life bill on Wednesday. Senate Bill 155, the most recent of the two, […]


Reports indicate that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing the paperwork to qualify for the Democratic presidential primary in at least one state. This news comes on the heels of increasing speculation that both Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton could join the race as late entries. Why are a growing number of […]


All eyes on Tuesday were on marquee races of the 2019 general elections in Virginia, Kentucky, and Mississippi. In Virginia, another blue wave devastated the GOP. In Kentucky, the incumbent Republican governor trails in a race that’s too close to call, while Republicans handily swept other statewide races on the ballot. Republicans also swept the statewide […]


If there was any doubt that the Common Core standards have been harmful to American academic achievement, that doubt should be erased by the 2019 results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the Nation’s Report Card. NAEP results have been stagnant or declining since the full implementation of the standards was mandated in […]


The 2019 elections are just about in the books. Below are some of the biggest story lines after last night. Kentucky Governor’s Race Still Too Close to Call as GOP Sweeps Other Statewide Races The Kentucky governor’s race is too close to call after a wild finish that may get wilder. Shortly after midnight on […]


Pennsylvania State Rep. Wendy Ullman (D-Bucks) revealed the dehumanizing sentiment that drives the pro-abortion movement in a comment made last week regarding miscarriages. Speaking on a bill before the Pennsylvania House Health Committee that would give parents of aborted or miscarried babies the decision to cremate or bury their child, Ullman remarked: It refers specifically […]


Four states have elections this Tuesday. Some of them could be early bellwethers for the 2020 elections. Here’s what you need to know about these elections and why you should care even if you don’t live in one of the four states. Virginia Virginia has some of the most important races of the year. The entire […]


This week, the Federal Reserve will be in the spotlight as markets digest where the central bank stands on this rate-cutting cycle. A CNBC survey of economists and money managers showed 80 percent of respondents anticipate another interest rate cut in October, and a narrow majority believes it will be the last rate cut of […]
