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 […]


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.

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 […]


New rule: If you want to launch a primary challenge against a sitting U.S. president with high party approval ratings, you have to actually say why your ideas are better. Elections provide the best opportunity to inject new ideas into public debate. It’s no surprise to anyone that politicians pay the most attention to their […]


Still reeling from a holiday celebrating that genocidal maniac, Christopher Columbus, schools in Seattle are about to dole out another heaping spoonful of how white men, colonization, and all things related to Western Civilization are bad. Very, very bad. Not only did white men and the growth of Western Civilization result in disease, pestilence, slavery, and […]


As Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), the powerful chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, approaches retirement in 2020, he and Congress are making one last push to reauthorize the Higher Education Act (HEA). This legislation has been in a stalemate for the last five years. This means that the odious College […]


On Wednesday, October 2, former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of Botham Jean.

Last Friday, an activist interrupted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) town hall event, provoking mixed feelings of amusement and horror across the internet. Channeling the Bronx congresswoman’s penchant for generating controversy with eccentric claims about climate change — such as her suggestions that prehistoric viruses will inundate the face of the earth as glaciers melt and […]


Last week, Andrew Yang became the latest Democratic presidential candidate to endorse one of the craziest policies to emerge this election cycle: “Democracy Dollars.” The premise behind “Democracy Dollars” is that taxpayer funding should be redistributed to political candidates — regardless of whether or not you agree with them — as this would create a […]


Last week, the Department of Justice announced its support for the Catholic Archdiocese of Indianapolis in a controversial lawsuit brought against them by a former teacher at Indianapolis’ Cathedral High School.

Pundits and politicians are vociferously debating the health of the U.S. economy, but one subject that isn’t up for debate is the health of the world economy — it stinks. Economic growth has slowed precipitously in China, India, Germany, France, U.K., Italy, Japan, India and much of the developed world. For now, the U.S. is […]


When I was a kid, my siblings pranked me by telling me there was a man living under the basement stairs. Anyone who would secretly live under the basement stairs had to be there for only one reason: to murder me. They probably only told me about a serial killer in the basement one time, but it […]


Several weeks ago, we wrote about the very grave bipartisan concerns over “red flag laws” that have sadly been already passed in 17 states. These laws have been described as setting up a process that allows family members or law enforcement to ask a judge for an order that allows temporary confiscation of firearms if […]


Blain Dillard, the Carey, N.C., parent in the Wake County School District that we wrote about several weeks ago who is being sued by a Common Core math curriculum company for speaking out against the Mathematics Vision Project (MVP), is now countersuing: A Cary parent who is being sued for libel and slander for criticizing […]


During Donald Trump’s recent campaign rally in New Mexico, the president made headlines when he told the audience, “We really think we’re going to turn this state and make it a Republican state.” As per usual, Trump’s remarks were met with jeering from the liberal media, who noted that a Republican presidential candidate hasn’t won […]


Nicodemus Daoud Matti Sharaf, the Orthodox Bishop of Mosul and one of the leading Christian voices in the Middle East, gave a stirring interview to the National Catholic Register a few years ago. That interview, while informative, also sent a message that should trouble us all: the West cares more about frogs than about Middle-Eastern […]


The BBC has unleashed a flagship of ideological imperialism on the schools of England. By a series of videos intended to indoctrinate teachers and students alike in the vagaries of gender ideology, citizens are being coerced to believe that there are 100 genders and that to disagree may land you in prison. This tyrannical episode […]


One of the great accomplishments of the Trump era was the Janus decision — a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling, supported by Trump-appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch, which ruled that non-union public sector workers cannot be forced to pay union fees as a condition of employment. This decision is similar to right-to-work laws which extend these freedoms […]
