Jeff Sessions is Still Best For Alabama

President Donald Trump officially endorsed Tommy Tuberville, spurning his former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the Alabama Senate race. Sessions fell out of favor with the President and was fired from the post of Attorney General in 2018 after he recused himself from the Justice Department’s Russia investigation. “This is what happens to someone who loyally gets appointed Attorney General of the United States & then doesn’t have the wisdom or courage to stare down & end the phony Russia Witch Hunt. Recuses himself on FIRST DAY in office, and the Mueller Scam begins!” Trump tweeted after Sessions fell

Abortion Wars Intensify as Both Sides Go on Offense

Abortion continues to be at the center of the public conversation lately in the midst of a state-by-state push by pro-lifers to change the legal regime that has resulted in nearly 60 million abortions since 1973. Meanwhile, the 2020 Democrat candidates for president are campaigning on the issue to appeal to hard-left voters. The front runner, former Vice President Joe Biden, called the new pro-life laws in Alabama and Georgia “pernicious” and “wrong” and said he would support federal legislation to codify Roe into law. Biden also said he would support ending the Hyde Amendment, a law renewed annually that prohibits direct

Alabama Declares War on Roe v. Wade

Alabama has enacted the first law in decades to make abortion illegal again in a state. The new law is designed as the boldest and most direct challenge to Roe v. Wade in over 25 years. The law, titled the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, was passed by an overwhelming vote (74-3 in the state House and 25-6 in the state Senate) and promptly signed into law by Governor Kay Ivey. It will take effect in six months if it is not blocked by a court and will make abortion a felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison for any

Voters Approve Pro-Life Constitutional Amendments in Alabama, West Virginia

Voters in Alabama and West Virginia passed strong pro-life amendments to their state constitutions in ballot initiatives on Tuesday. In West Virginia, where Joe Manchin masquerades as a pro-life Democrat and pulled off a narrow victory, voters passed Amendment 1 by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent. A 1993 state Supreme Court decision effectively mandated taxpayer funding for abortion in West Virginia by striking down a law prohibiting funding of abortion through Medicaid. According to state Delegate Kayla Kessinger, over 35,000 abortions have been paid for by West Virginia taxpayers since then. That ends with Amendment 1, which adds to

Pro-Life Wave? Voters to Decide on Key Abortion Measures in 3 States

When American voters go to the polls tomorrow, they will not only be voting on candidates but also on many ballot measures put forward to address policy and regulatory issues at the state level. And in three particular states, these measures involve an especially critical issue: abortion. On Tuesday, voters in Oregon, West Virginia, and Alabama will be asked to decide whether or not to amend their states’ constitutions regarding the issue of abortion. The proposed amendments in Oregon and West Virginia are similar in that they both address the use of public funds to pay for abortion, while Alabama’s

States Seek to Bolster Pro-Life Laws Ahead of Possible Roe v. Wade Reversal

This November, both Alabama and West Virginia will vote on proposed state constitutional amendments which stipulate that a right to abortion is not protected at the state level. Although both state legislatures approved the ballot measures last April and May, the two initiatives could have more immediate relevance than expected if Judge Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed and the Supreme Court shifts toward a conservative majority. Since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in late June, conservatives and liberals alike have speculated about the likelihood of a potential court reversal of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case that

Moore Victory Sends Clear Message to McConnell, GOP Establishment

On Tuesday evening, Roy Moore rattled the Washington establishment as he claimed victory over Luther Strange in the GOP Senate primary in Alabama. Moore finished with 54.6 percent of the vote statewide, while Luther Strange tallied 45.4 percent. The former chief justice of Alabama’s state Supreme Court, Moore has garnered an outpouring of support from Alabamians since he announced his candidacy in April. Moore also won the backing of many prominent conservatives — including Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Steve Bannon, and Laura Ingraham, to name a few — prior to the runoff election. And although President Trump

A Strange Endorsement from President Trump

Republican leadership’s failure to get on board with the Make America Great Again (MAGA) agenda has been a source of frustration to President Trump as he struggles for a legislative victory in Congress. If there is one thing that Trump needs out of the 2018 elections, it is the election of strong conservative candidates who will fight for his agenda, not establishment Republicans who will side against him. Trump’s recent endorsement of Luther Strange, the establishment’s pick in the GOP Senate primary race in Alabama, has caught Trump supporters by surprise. Strange is backed by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose
