Last Friday, I wrote a piece for The Hill urging establishment Republicans to resist the impulse to abandon President Trump and instead embrace his agenda. If the Republican Party turns against Trump, I argued, “it would be a death blow to conservative resistance and revival in America.” It’s a simple argument: Trump is in sync […]


As Americans begin the unenviable task of trying to rebuild from the recent hurricanes, a silver-lining to these tragic events can still be uncovered under close examination: As devastating as the recent storms were, American capitalism and innovation prevented an enormous amount of suffering and untimely deaths. While any lives lost are too many, The […]


In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is facing a discrimination lawsuit from three different Houston churches. More than just homes were destroyed by Harvey; non-profit organizations, including churches and religious organizations, were as well. FEMA has a fund that provides for these groups: the Public Assistance Grant program. Per […]


This article is part of series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. Most of Helen Krieble’s Liberty Minutes involve stories where she has heard of government interference affecting other people. However, in a recent installment, “GESC Fencing,” the government overreach hits a little closer to home: My home […]


This article was posted originally at The Hill. “Is Trump finished?” one of his savviest conservative supporters asked me recently. In other words, will restless Republicans, unable to achieve any legislative victories, turn on the president of the United States? Abandon hope all ye who succumb to this temptation. Turning on Trump is not the first, […]


Earlier this week, in a seemingly absurd statement, Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards wrote that “every person has the right to live.” Given the lethal work her organization does, her supposed defense of the right to life is laughably ironic. However, it all suddenly makes sense when the context of the entire quote is considered: […]


Sixteen left-wing activist attorneys general have filed one of the dumbest lawsuits in recent memory. Attorneys general from New York, Massachusetts, Washington, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia, and DC have filed a lawsuit to stop Donald Trump’s plan to phase out the Deferred Action […]


Immigration reform has come to the forefront of the American political conversation after President Trump announced on Tuesday that he would rescind former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA. In his statement on the issue, President Trump stated: As President, my highest duty is to defend the American people […]


Jane Robbins recently did an excellent job of describing the “government-sponsored personality manipulation” likely coming to a school near you. It is now time to look at the details of the federally-funded means for accomplishing this Orwellian effort. The program is called PBIS, Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. This benignly named program has been used […]


Yesterday marked the passage of another Labor Day weekend where workers had to suffer from coercive union dues. As Richard Berman, executive director of the Center for Union Facts, noted in Detroit News: …in the last decade, union leadership has sent more than $1 billion collected without prior permission from member dues to the Democratic […]


Hurricane Harvey has been an absolute tragedy. Not only has there been a tremendous loss of life, but the mass destruction of property and opportunities for the people of Texas has the entire country in mourning. It is at times like this where you see people pull together as one nation, set aside differences, and […]


This article is part of series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. If you’ve ever debated common sense issues like protecting the right to life or religious freedom, you’ve probably heard a liberal use the tired, old “Separation of Church and State” argument. All too often, however, the separation […]


Imagine if the government sent you a letter saying, “We intend to take your house, demolish it, and build a chain restaurant.” In rural western Maryland, there’s a memorable little town called Cumberland. Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, the town was a gateway to the west in early American history and was once Maryland’s second […]


It seems like ages ago now when supporters of same-sex marriage were trotting out the argument: “How will someone else’s marriage affect you?” In the time since Obergefell, however, we have unfortunately learned the answer. While Colorado baker Jack Phillips awaits his day in court — the Supreme Court, to be specific — after being sued […]


Yesterday, President Trump launched his Tax Cut Kickoff Tour in epic fashion by calling out Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) — who is up for re-election in 2018 — as one of the potentially critical votes in enacting tax reform. Turning up the pressure on vulnerable Senate Democrats like McCaskill, Trump touted the newly revised GDP […]


Coming as a surprise to no one, Democrats in Congress are reportedly preparing to fight President Trump’s recently issued directive regarding transgender individuals in the US military. Their method, according to multiple outlets, will be one or more amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), an important defense spending bill considered must-pass legislation by […]


It’s not every day we take the opportunity to write sweet nothings about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi here at The National Pulse, but this week she definitely deserves some credit. Following more left-wing violence perpetrated by “antifa” — a group of radical, left-wing terrorists that believes all violence against political opponents is justified — […]


With the largest Republican majority since 1928, one would think that enacting tax cuts (a signature pillar of the Republican Party) would have been low hanging fruit for our elected officials. Unfortunately, with only 48 legislative days left in 2017, the clock is ticking. Time is running out for the Republican Congress to make good […]


The corporate data miners that seek to psychologically profile our children in their unproven and dangerous experiments — both for profit and in order to convert education into workforce development for a planned economy — are trying to expand the preschool technology market. And of course, mind-bending social emotional learning (SEL) is at the forefront. […]


For months — heck, for two years — the media has been obsessed with Donald Trump. They have covered his every word and every move since the moment he announced his candidacy for president in 2015, and since he took office in January, it’s been at a fever pitch. Nonstop, wall-to-wall, endless, breathless coverage of […]
