When news first broke that Professor Christine Blasey Ford had accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of committing attempted sexual assault against her when they were both teenagers — just days before his Senate confirmation vote to become the Supreme Court’s newest justice — many on the Left immediately called for Kavanaugh’s head. ABC News Chief Political […]


Leftist activists and Democrat senators have spent the last four days making fools of themselves during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Anyone who has watched the hearings on television has heard the shrill shrieks of leftist agitators, screaming about how Kavanaugh is going to take away their health care […]


Last week, President Trump told Bloomberg News that he is considering indexing capital gains to inflation. If the President follows through with this plan, his timing really couldn’t be better. This free market policy change should send market sentiment soaring right before the midterm election. I have previously written that indexing capital gains to inflation […]


Several Democrat senators running for re-election in red states voted to continue taxpayer funding for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood on Thursday. An amendment proposed by Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to a massive bill to fund the Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services would have stripped Planned Parenthood of nearly half a billion dollars […]


Recently, CNBC announced that Texas came in first place for the network’s “2018 America’s Top States for Business” rankings. As CNBC noted in its announcement, “[t]his is familiar territory for the Lone Star State, which becomes the first four-time winner in our annual study, now in its 12th year… 1 in 7 jobs created in […]


In a stunning reversal of an inclusive platform amendment, the Missouri Democratic Party has decided that pro-life Democrats are not welcome after all. Pro-lifers across the country lauded Missouri Democrats when a platform amendment that was inclusive of pro-life opinion was passed. The amendment, approved in July, read: We respect the conscience of each Missourian […]


The fact that ‘pro-life Democrat’ sounds like an oxymoron is a tragic commentary on the state of our nation’s politics. Within the two major political parties in our country, along with smaller groups and factions, you will find countless variations of personal political platforms. The fiscal is separated from the social, and people often split […]


Late last month, the Missouri Democratic Party announced a new platform, containing an amendment that has since raised a great deal of controversy within the party. At their quarterly meeting, the Missouri Democratic Party approved updates to their ten-year-old platform and included an unexpectedly welcoming caveat for pro-life party members: We respect the conscience of […]


With just over 100 days to go before election day, what’s the state of the battleground Senate races? The party which controls the White House usually loses seats in Congress in the first midterm after the presidential election. This year is unique in that Republicans could be poised to lose seats in the House while […]


In the beginning of this first full week of summer, it looked like the big issues leading up to November’s midterm elections were going to be immigration, Obamacare, and North Korea. However, that’s all been thrown out the window now with the bombshell news that Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring for the Supreme Court. Court […]


Is this year going to look like 2010 or 1998? It’s the end of May, and this week came with the stunning news that the generic ballot gap has narrowed to almost zero. The “generic ballot” is a type of poll which asks voters if they would be more likely to vote for the Republican […]


After Senate Democrats blocked an anti-human trafficking bill last week because it lacked language that would allow abortions, pro-life groups have come together to condemn the decision and to advocate for anti-trafficking legislation. “In a stunning display of protecting abortion at all costs, the U.S. Senate failed to defend victims — women and little girls — […]


This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. In her Liberty Minute titled “The People Rule,” Helen Krieble exposes a blatant attack on the First Amendment right of a free press: [In 2013], the Federal Communications Commission issued a proposal to place government […]


Before the start of this month, the prevailing narrative in the media (even among many conservative commentators) was that the millennial generation was an army of socialists-in-training. Pundits pointed to the rise of Bernie Sanders as evidence that millennials detested capitalism and would bring our economy to ruin if ever empowered. I attacked this “Communist […]


Over the years, Beltway insiders and the media have built a myth around Mitch McConnell as a master tactician and strategist who both sides agree is a formidable force in Congress. For the most part, it’s just not true. For all his decades in the Senate and years in Senate leadership, McConnell has only one major legislative […]


This article was originally posted at The Hill. Over the past several months, political pundits and media elites alike have decided we are headed toward a “blue wave” in this year’s midterm elections. This narrative is spoken as if it is an absolute certainty, reminiscent of the “Hillary Clinton is unbeatable” conventional wisdom in 2016 — and […]


Last week, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) unveiled his plan (or half of one — more on that later) to create a new federal program guaranteeing “Jobs-For-All.” Sen. Sanders’ proposal would guarantee that every American worker could receive a government job that pays at least $15 an hour and includes health care benefits. It would seem […]


Recently, there has been increased discussion that Congress is gearing up for a “Tax Cut, Phase II.” This is a terrific development — a second round of tax cuts will reveal in bright colors which members of Congress are for and against more money in workers’ wallets. There are mountains of evidence to suggest that […]


Chicago-area Congressman Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), one of the last pro-life Democrats in Congress, staved off a fierce primary challenge from a ferociously pro-abortion candidate last night. Rep. Lipinski defeated Marie Newman — an ultra-leftist who had the backing of Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Human Rights Campaign, and Bernie Sanders — by a margin of […]


This article was originally posted at The Stream. Dems are chortling with glee about the election on Tuesday night: They snatched another victory in deep red territory. Trump won Pennsylvania 18th congressional district by 20 points. On Tuesday, the Democrat Conor Lamb eked out a win over GOP’s Rick Saccone. Dems are smacking their lips: They […]
