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 […]


This past Monday marked another important victory for religious liberty, this time coming via an Arizona Supreme Court ruling. The case dealt with many familiar issues: two Christian calligraphers, Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, operate a company called Brush and Nib LLC which specializes in handmade, custom calligraphy products. The duo felt that a Phoenix […]


Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) recently made the radical suggestion that the United States allow the United Nations to handle the massive influx of immigrants at our southern border. She stated, “We should do what any other country does by dealing with this situation in a serious way.” So, if every other country allows the UN to […]


I’m going to do what the media won’t — talk about Andrew Yang. Despite being “the hottest candidate this side of Elizabeth Warren” right now, Yang was allotted less than 8 minutes of speaking time during last night’s 3-hour Democratic debate, the least of any candidate in the field. This marginalization of Yang follows a […]


Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is many things. The Democratic primary candidate is fluent in Norwegian and a former Rhodes Scholar. He’s also embroiled in a racially tinged controversy involving the South Bend police department. However, there is one thing Buttigieg certainly isn’t: a theologian. Time and time again, the 2020 candidate […]


A recent article by Erika Christakis in The Atlantic titled “The New Preschool Is Crushing Kids” again highlights the problems with making kindergarten and preschool overly academic and how the huge expansion in preschool is actually harming academic achievement and doing little if anything to close the achievement gap. The accountability movement of strict standards […]


Walmart used to be a major target for Democrats. They would pillory the retail giant for paying low wages to their employees and wiping out small businesses. Republicans would often rush to Walmart’s defense as a free market success story. Now the tables have turned as Walmart is using its might to push a left-wing […]


Welcome back from Labor Day weekend! I hope it was a great one for all our readers. I was out in Texas for the first time, and as a good conservative, it pains me to be back in the swamp! But, lucky for us, this shortened work week did provide us with some exciting economic […]


Politicizing and propagandizing in U.S. public schools is at an all-time high. Not only has the far left agenda sucked education into a black hole of safe spaces, hurt feelings, and post-truth America-bashing, but now the progressive elites want to teach kids everything there is to know about sex. Not just the-birds-and-the-bees sex. The kind of sex […]


As alarm about the problems, dangers, and poor research related to social emotional learning (SEL) spreads, prominent new voices are entering the fray to speak against it. Bob Kellogg at One News Now recently discussed SEL’s harm to parental autonomy and the academic dilution it causes, while Max Eden, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, […]


A new poll released last week by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal contains surprising information that could have a profound cultural impact in the years to come. It is interesting to note that the article releasing the results of the poll buries the lede. The NBC News’ headline reads, “‘A deep and boiling […]


Red flag laws or “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” have become an intensive topic of discussion and debate after the 2018 Parkland, Fla., shooting as well as the more recent shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso Texas. These laws have been described as setting up a process that allows family members or law enforcement to […]


Recently, the stock market has been on a wild ride after trade war escalations including the U.S. labeling China a currency manipulator, the announcement of $550 billion in new tariffs, and a confusing tweet ordering U.S. manufacturers to make contingency plans to relocate from China. As Steve Forbes noted on Fox Business, the stock market is […]


The evangelical world has been jolted over the last month by a handful of prominent Christian leaders who have renounced the faith and condemned what they previously stood for. Now a well-known rocker is calling for Christians to resist relativism and embrace “truth over feeling.” It started with Joshua Harris, a former megachurch pastor best […]


The founding father, and signer of the Declaration of Independence, Samuel Chase once said that “religion is of general and public concern, and on its support depend, in great measure, the peace and good order of government.” It is almost certain that if the famous Marylander were to come back today, he would recoil in […]


As this nation continues to contend with major social and political discord and violence, perhaps the education world is turning to the roots of faith present before and since America’s founding. For the first time, the 51st annual Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) poll on public education issues included questions on teaching Bible classes in public […]


Like many institutions in government, the Federal Reserve has dramatically increased in size and scope since its inception. The Fed was originally established to be a lender of last resort, then expanded its charter to a “dual mandate” of maintaining dollar stability and minimizing unemployment through monetary policy, and currently has oversight over banks and […]


Last Wednesday, three Democrat lawmakers announced they would be introducing the “Clergy Mandatory Reporting Act” in Wisconsin’s state legislature. The State Assembly version of the bill is sponsored by Reps. Chris Taylor (D-Madison) and Melissa Sargent (D-Madison), while the State Senate version is sponsored by Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee). While statements from the bill’s sponsors […]


In a recent appearance on Fox News, supply-side economist Arthur Laffer was asked to give his assessment of the global economy after a week of market turmoil due to tariffs and currency devaluation from China. Laffer does not view the United States as having an immediate risk of recession, but he warned that the rest […]


Last week, Senator Steve Daines (R-Mont.) introduced a resolution condemning socialism to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Its full title is “A resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that socialism poses a significant threat to freedom, liberty, and economic prosperity.” Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) failed 2016 campaign in many ways put socialism back on the map […]
