The state of Michigan has announced that funding will be cut off from adoption agencies that do not work with same-sex couples, forcing faith-based organizations to choose between their religious beliefs and the bottom line. This decision, announced Friday, comes as a result of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) suing the state on behalf […]


Influential supply-side economist Stephen Moore has been nominated by President Trump for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. His decades of research, writing, and championing of supply-side economics make him the perfect pick to fill one of the most important economic positions in the U.S. Stephen Moore’s legacy as a leader in […]


For the first time in a long time, Democrat candidates for president are being seriously challenged — by both sides — about their positions on abortion. Abortion has long been a sacred cow of the Left. There has not been a serious pro-life Democrat to run for president in decades, so support for abortion has […]


Just hours after Governor Matt Bevin signed Kentucky’s fetal heartbeat bill into law on Friday, a federal judge temporarily blocked it. The law was set to become one of the strictest anti-abortion measures in the country. It would block abortions occurring after a fetal heartbeat was detected, which is typically detectable by six weeks into […]


Not apparently content with the extent of invasive personality profiling discussed last year, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is expanding it psychological profiling to 5,000 young children each in the U.S., England, and Estonia. The assessment is titled the International Early Learning Survey (IELS). Dubbed by some as “Baby PISA” (after the […]


Will “Betomania” be going nationwide next year? The mediocre former Texas congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke today announced he is running for president in 2020. The announcement comes after he declared just a few months ago he would not run for president. O’Rourke became a leftist superstar in his high-profile challenge to Sen. Ted Cruz last year. […]


Last week, Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats rammed through H.R. 1, the “For the People Act,” in a party-line vote. While Democrats and their media allies claim the House passage of this legislation amounts to a victory for “transparency” that would make our elections process more democratic, H.R. 1 does quite the opposite. The […]


A few weeks back I discussed how President Trump could deliver massive, pro-growth tax cuts without any approval from Congress. Today, one of these suggested policy changes received a major endorsement when publisher and supply-side icon Steve Forbes revealed his support. Writing for Forbes.com, Steve Forbes called for for eliminating taxes on gold and silver […]


Last Wednesday, the Idaho House of Representatives passed HB 120, a bill that requires parental opt-in for sex education, by a party-line 56 to 14 vote. It now heads to the Republican-controlled Idaho Senate. The bill is sponsored by State Representative Barbara Ehardt (R-Idaho Falls) and co-sponsored by 23 Republican lawmakers. It reads, “Any parent or […]


The Pioneer Institute, a national leader in the fight against Common Core and other horrible corporatist and global education reform ideas, today released a new study titled “Social-Emotional Learning: K–12 Education as New Age Nanny State.” The study — which I was honored to co-author with attorney and researcher Jane Robbins and Dr. Kevin Ryan, […]


In a win for religious liberty, the state of Colorado has decided to drop its case against Christian baker Jack Phillips after years of legal hostility. Phillips is the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop and was the leading figure in last summer’s 7-2 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that overturned Colorado’s attempt to force him to create […]


Democrats are now openly saying that if you disagree with same-sex marriage, you’re no longer a decent person. Some on the Left have been saying that for a few years now, forgetting that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both publicly opposed same-sex marriage as recently as seven years ago. But now, even prominent national Democrats […]


U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Congressmen Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Bobby Scott (D-Va.) reintroduced a bill that would essentially render the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) useless. According to its sponsors, the “Do No Harm Act” would prevent the RFRA from being used to deny: Protection against discrimination laws or the promotion of equal […]


The 2020 Democratic presidential primary has been heating up in the last couple weeks, with multiple new candidates jumping in the race and several more poised to announce their decisions this month. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Kamala Harris are jockeying for position at the front of the pack. Sanders’ campaign reportedly raised […]


President Trump was recently presented with one of the greatest foreign policy tests of his administration when Nicolas Maduro’s regime closed its doors to humanitarian aid attempting to enter Venezuela by land and sea. Despite the United States’ dubious history of intervention in Latin American politics, the administration has been right not to ignore the […]


Missouri’s state House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a sweeping pro-life bill that is being labeled the “strongest in the nation” on Wednesday, sending it to the Missouri state Senate with a vote of 117-39. House Bill 126, commonly referred to as the “Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act,” is comprehensive in restricting abortions in the […]


In the wake of multiple horrific school shootings — particularly the Parkland, Fla., massacre where 17 people were murdered by a student long-known to have mental issues — states all over the nation have been moving to expand mental health screening, treatment, and data collection. The two most prominent states are Florida and Texas, but […]


Fresh off a hilarious, failed attempt to get liberal Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to pledge to vote ‘yes’ on the “Green New Deal,” proponents of this effort to bankrupt America are now complaining that the upcoming Senate vote is “a sham.” E&E News reports: If Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) calls a vote on […]


Planned Parenthood isn’t satisfied with having aborted more than 330,000 babies in 2017. Now, in an effort to cast their net a little wider and reel in a larger number of potential clients, they’ve developed a chatbot named Roo. Roo is an artificial intelligence app available via the Planned Parenthood website and targeted at kids […]


The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) recently gave the upcoming pro-life film “Unplanned” an ‘R’ rating for violence, an ironic endorsement of the film’s key message. “Unplanned” tells the story of former Planned Parenthood clinic manager Abby Johnson. Running the clinic opened her eyes to the gruesome reality of abortion, causing her pro-life conversion. […]
