This week, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released the first of a series of never-before-seen videos featuring whistleblower testimony regarding Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal body parts to the biotech company StemExpress. The video serves to further shed light on the shady business partnership built upon the sale of illegally obtained human tissue. In […]


This article is part of series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. In her Liberty Minute titled “Pull Up or Pay Up,” Helen Krieble criticized school boards and city councils which have taken their power to the extreme by even mandating what people are and are not allowed […]


As I’ve written several times before, Virginia’s 2017 statewide elections are critical for both national parties. Polling in Virginia races is notoriously wild, and this year has been no exception. While most polls have shown Democrat Ralph Northam leading Republican Ed Gillespie, they have almost all been within the margin of error. That is, until […]


An interesting article in Quartz today celebrates the fact that Europe is experiencing a “goldilocks moment” for economic growth. So which nations are leading the charge? Germany? France? The United Kingdom? Nope — all three of these nations are traveling side-by-side with the U.S. in the economic slow lane. To discover Europe’s all-stars of economic […]


Linda Greenhouse, writing for The New York Times earlier this month, laments: “On Contraception, It’s Church Over State.” Greenhouse opens with the statement “Saudi women are gaining the right to drive. American women are losing the right to employer-provided birth control.” The problems with her argument begin immediately. Modern rights ideology necessarily proceeds from the false premise […]


A young, pregnant illegal immigrant, referred to only as Jane Doe, is revealing the intersection of disparate political issues. Doe is 17 years old and was pregnant when she crossed the border in September as an unaccompanied minor. Since crossing, she has been held in an immigration detention center in Texas, and while in detainment, […]


One commonly used definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Bill Gates, the billionaire education philanthropist, has spent hundreds of millions of dollars remaking education according to his philosophy but exempting his own children from his “reforms.” He apparently sees that definition applying only to mere mortals […]


This article is part of series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. Last week, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Seattle University’s Law School revoked its sponsorship of an event hosted by the conservative Federalist Society. The school’s dean announced her decision via an email stating that she […]


This year, CNN has hosted a series of televised debates between prominent members of Congress from both parties on specific topics. Called “CNN Debate Night,” these prime-time debates have been an incredibly good thing for America. Typical debates and panels on cable news pit a commentator versus a host, or 2-4 commentators against each other, […]


This article was originally posted at The Federalist. Kyle Sammin cogently argues that the United States should implement a voluntary national identity system in the wake of the Equifax hacking. Debate about this issue has roiled for decades. Although numerous countries have a national identification system, Americans have long resisted the idea. The Social Security number (SSN) has certainly […]


On Sunday, California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed AB 569. The bill, introduced by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego), would have prohibited faith-based organizations including churches, colleges, non-profit organizations, and pro-life pregnancy centers from having a code of conduct about abortion and sexual behavior. The bill only provided a ministerial exemption for those who are […]


American Principles Project released a new poll this week showing that issues surrounding the transgender phenomenon are “toxic” for Democrats, especially when they involve children. The poll, conducted last week by Revily, Inc., surveyed 341 likely voters in the Virginia 13th District House of Delegates race between incumbent Republican Del. Bob Marshall and Democrat Danica […]


When Bernie Sanders was on the presidential campaign trail, he famously lambasted the Democratic Party for “often” supporting corporate welfare. Bernie Sanders surely knows this to be true — as this last week has revealed the extreme lengths that Democrats, including himself, will go to defend the most egregious corporate handouts in America. After the […]


Donald Trump is often mocked for his mantra “fake news,” not because he is wrong but because the two-syllable sound-bite is inarticulate and leaves itself wide open for pedantic criticism. Clever ideologues can easily turn it around on him when he is inaccurate with his own statements. However, there is a truth lurking behind the […]


Politico’s Morning Education recently discussed the efforts of a California education committee to comply with a 2011 state law requiring that social studies textbooks teach about “the role and contributions of” eight different identity groups including “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans…and members of other ethnic and cultural groups, to the economic, political, and social […]


Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have joined forces in Missouri, filing a lawsuit against the state over a recently passed abortion law. Senate Bill 5, signed in July by Republican Governor Eric Greitens, “modifies several provisions relating to abortion,” including regulations in complication plans, consent to abortion procedures, tissue reports, Attorney […]


This article is part of series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. A few weeks ago, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio finally gave his support to efforts aimed at repealing an absurd anti-dancing law which has been in the books for over 90 years. The Prohibition-era […]


According to an overreaching board of trustees, evangelical students at Princeton University should hide their religious affiliation because it stereotypes them as Republicans. The board recently announced their decision that the students must scrap the word “Evangelical” in their student club’s title. Therefore, what has been known for eight decades, since its founding in 1937, […]


The Boy Scouts of America announced on Wednesday that they have changed their organization’s male-only policy to now include female membership in the scouts. Starting in 2018, the Cub Scouts — an organization traditionally reserved for young boys and affiliate of the Boy Scouts — will be open to girls, with a program for older […]


Let me be completely clear: if Harvey Weinstein is guilty of the sexual harassment, assault, and rape claims currently making headlines, he is a pig, a predator, and a criminal. His dirty little secrets should — if everything plays out the way it appears to be playing out — guarantee him some time in an […]
