An incredible moment happened earlier this week during Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court. Of course, it will fly under the radar and be ignored by the mainstream media, but it was very telling. Watch this video (or read the transcript below): Senator Feinstein talked about the dark days before Roe v. Wade. […]


Faced with an eminently qualified, reasonable, fair, and brilliant judge, Democrats are flailing — and failing — in their desperate attempt to “bork” Judge Neil Gorsuch. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) hit new lows when she attempted to savage Neil Gorsuch for saying he believes “the intentional taking of a human life by private persons is always […]


The opportunity conservatives have been awaiting for years has finally arrived: defunding Planned Parenthood. Republicans tried to cut federal funding to the abortion provider last year but were out of luck. The bill passed the House and Senate but was vetoed by President Obama, which was no surprise given his extremely pro-abortion track record. But now, […]


As I wrote last week, Virginia’s statewide elections this November will be a critical bellwether on how voters are feeling about Donald Trump, the Republican White House, and the Republican agenda. Democrats will pour millions of dollars into the race, seeking to test their message in a purple state before the 2018 midterm elections. Republicans […]


It’s hard to underestimate the importance of the statewide elections in Virginia in 2017. Virginia is the epitome of a purple battleground state, with Democrats dominating the densely populated Washington, D.C., suburbs in Northern Virginia, and Republicans dominating pretty much everywhere else. As one of two states to have constitutionally-required statewide elections every year, it’s […]


Last week, amidst the increasingly heated political debate over Obamacare, President Trump offered an important message to those obstructing health care reform. In his remarks to CPAC, Trump stated: From a purely political standpoint, the single best thing we can do is nothing. Let it implode completely. It’s already imploding. You see the carriers are […]


A new Rasmussen poll suggests that Frank Cannon is right: Donald Trump is winning his war with the media and the Democrats. The attempt to “de-normalize” the Trump administration is failing. Just 29 percent of likely U.S. voters think it’s better for the country if the Democrats oppose President Trump in every way possible. Sixty-three percent […]


Sam Brownback, governor of Kansas, has a message for Republicans about the social issues: they can help you win elections. On banning late-term abortions and defunding Planned Parenthood, for example, he told me, “These life issues are winners in the political body. The country is pro-life.” Gov. Brownback should know. He and the GOP-controlled Kansas […]


According to multiple reports, Andy Puzder, President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Labor, has withdrawn from consideration for the post. I am withdrawing my nomination for Secretary of Labor. I’m honored to have been considered and am grateful to all who have supported me. — Andy Puzder (@AndyPuzder) February 15, 2017 Puzder was opposed by […]


I know it’s way too early to talk about 2018, but — come on — have you looked at the Senate map yet? 2018 favors the GOP in a way that few cycles ever have historically. Of the 33 Senate seats up for election in 2018, just eight are currently held by Republicans, while 23 are held by […]

All of this demonizing and otherizing is getting exhausting.


Frank argued quite persuasively last week that it wasn’t House Bill 2 itself that doomed North Carolina’s Gov. Pat McCrory in his reelection bid, but rather the overwhelming negative publicity dumped on the state by the left-leaning media and corporate-entertainment-sports complex. But while Democrats and their allies were busy outspending McCrory in the governor’s race […]


Today, North Carolina’s Republican Gov. Pat McCrory announced he would be conceding the state’s gubernatorial race to Democratic Gov.-elect Roy Cooper, bringing an end to several weeks of recounts and investigations into alleged cases of voter fraud. Despite his defeat, conservatives should applaud Gov. Pat McCrory for standing up for what is right. He refused […]


There was a time, not long ago, when Democrats commonly accused the Republican Party of being the “Party of Big Business.” Republicans, or so it was claimed, cared more about corporate interests than those of the average voter, while Democrats were supposedly looking out for the little guy. During this election season, however, there has […]


There’s been much talk among Catholics over the last day and a half about the newly released emails on the Hillary Clinton campaign’s disdain for them. It is also beginning to seep into mainstream outlets. There are two interesting things to consider here. The first is that the Catholic Church has survived for over 2,000 […]


Heard about HB 2 in North Carolina? You know, the law the media’s been calling the “bathroom bill”? Then you’re probably aware of all the big corporations, musical artists and sports leagues crying “bigotry.” Thankfully, the Institute for Faith and Family is giving voice to the other side. A new commercial uses the testimony of […]


According to the Washington Examiner, 19 Senate Democrats have introduced a resolution recognizing Planned Parenthood for the 100th anniversary of its founding, which took place on October 16, 1916: “The resolution, spearheaded by Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., praises the women’s health and abortion provider for leading significant changes in women’s health and civil rights, being […]


Hillary Clinton is not a communist. That said, she is certainly running to the left. What’s left? That’s actually an interesting question. People throw around the terms “left” and “right” with an instinctive, imprecise, sense of their meanings. It’s good to get back to first principles. […] There are many gradations of leftist sentiment, from […]


Back in May, I speculated that the conventional wisdom that Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson would disproportionately impact Donald Trump was wrong, and that Johnson was instead pulling support from both Trump and Hillary Clinton in almost equal measure. Fast-forward roughly four months, and it would appear the major candidates are realizing this as well — […]


For nearly three months now, Congress has been unable to pass a bill funding the fight against the Zika epidemic. This is not because no such bill exists; the House passed one in June which would provide $1.1 billion in funding to combat the virus’ spread. Senate Democrats have blocked the bill, however, for the […]
