This week, a George Soros-backed PAC supporting Virginia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ralph Northam released an ad against Republican Ed Gillespie so disturbing that even the far-left Washington Post called it “vile”: The ad came out one day before the terrorist attack in New York, where a man used a truck to mow down and kill 8 people.

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 […]

Bob Marshall and Democrat Danica […]

Illinois’ GOP Governor Bruce Rauner is up for reelection in 2018, but he is facing a potential primary challenge by conservatives furious at his expansion of taxpayer funded abortion.

In these times of sharp party division in Congress, any bipartisan agreement warrants particular attention. One such bipartisan resolution introduced this week is especially noteworthy since it deals with a hot-button issue — the legalization of assisted suicide.

Last week, H.R. 1628 was introduced in the U.S. Senate. The bill is a last-ditch Obamacare repeal effort, but it has the potential to defund Planned Parenthood and end federally sponsored abortions as well. The bill was introduced by four senators: Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Dean Heller (R-Nev.), and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). Former […]


In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is facing a discrimination lawsuit from three different Houston churches.
