Supreme Court


While President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, has managed to hit a grand-slam so far at this week’s confirmation hearings, this hasn’t stopped well-meaning “Never-Trumpers” and principled conservative pundits from picking apart his comments. The double-edged social media platform known as Twitter is great. It has empowered everyday people to have a voice when it […]


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 […]


Prof. Gerry Bradley of Notre Dame Law School has a column today at National Review repudiating recent arguments that Neil Gorsuch should answer boldly on overturning Roe v. Wade during his Senate confirmation hearings. Prof. Bradley argues: For him to become the first nominee in living memory to reveal his mind about Roe would mark him — […]


Two weeks ago, Planned Parenthood rejected an offer from President Donald Trump which would have continued federal funding to the organization, provided they cease performing abortions. Trump’s offer included the possibility of an increase in federal funding to Planned Parenthood, which appears to have not been enough of an incentive. Now Planned Parenthood has declared […]


By a 2-1 margin, a three-judge panel on the 11th Circuit on Friday rejected a security guard’s claim that legal protections against sex discrimination can be stretched to include sexual orientation discrimination, in a case where the guard claimed a hospital fired her because she was a lesbian. The majority opinion relied on a 1979 ruling that […]


Generally, the first 50 days of the Trump Administration have been an absolute joy to watch. The media and the Left have been apoplectic as President Trump largely honors his campaign promises and does exactly what he said he would do. Truthfully, Trump has been everything we hoped he would be and more. Still, that’s […]


In a victory for common sense, the Supreme Court vacated the Fourth Circuit ruling upholding Obama’s transgender mandates on public schools. It did so because Obama’s guidance letter holding that Title IX’s sex discrimination ban requires schools to give transgender teens equal access to the bathroom, shower, sports team and away-game hotel room of their […]


The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is boasting that 53 major corporations signed onto its amicus brief in G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board, alleging that permitting schools to base locker room and bathroom policies on biological gender will be bad for their business and violates their core corporate values. The lopsidedly tech-heavy list includes: Airbnb, […]


The deciding factor for many reluctant conservatives to get behind Donald Trump was the Supreme Court vacancy left by the passing of the late, great Antonin Scalia. Trump gave a list of potential justices he would appoint, and despite hints that he would ignore the list and choose someone else, he did end up delivering […]


The Senator may want to check his dictionary.

All of this demonizing and otherizing is getting exhausting.


Congratulations, President-elect Trump. Congratulations to the historic, never-before-seen governing majority he assembled. It’s time to hope I was wrong and work for President Trump’s success — for America’s success. Here are my first six takeaways from last night’s historic victory: 1.) The RNC’s “Autopsy” from 2012 got it exactly wrong in arguing the key to […]


The only thing a candidate can ever offer is words. He can’t act on what he will do because he’s speaking about the future, not the present. Yet Donald Trump has actually raised the bar for what pro-lifers can expect from Republican candidates, despite his troubling personal history on the issue. This sounds counter-intuitive: even […]


I really wish Republicans were more like outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. In a wide-ranging interview with Talking Points Memo, a left-wing news outlet, Reid (D-Nev.) proudly declared that he is setting the stage for the Democrats to eliminate the 60-vote filibuster rule should they win control of the Senate in November, allowing for […]


Things got spirited early during last night’s final presidential debate when moderator Chris Wallace asked both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to discuss their views on abortion, the Supreme Court, and Roe v. Wade. Trump reiterated his campaign promise to appoint pro-life justices and attacked Clinton on her support for partial-birth abortion, while Clinton reaffirmed that […]

Earlier this week, I wrote about Mike Pence’s complicated past history on religious liberty and argued that he had two choices before him on the issue: take a strong stand or retreat back to ambiguity. While Pence was not asked to address the topic during Tuesday’s debate, he was presented with several questions on social […]


Donald Trump is doing everything he can to make it clear to the pro-life movement: “I’m With You.” This week Trump tapped Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List and a frequent contributor to The Pulse 2016, to head up his pro-life coalition. Politico reports: Dannenfelser will seek to mobilize “national and statewide […]


If there was ever any question about who pro-life voters should support on Election Day, Mike Pence — who has championed pro-life initiatives in Congress and as governor of Indiana — cleared it up over the weekend. At the annual Values Voter Summit on Saturday, Gov. Pence once again demonstrated his deep roots in the pro-life […]


Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson recently sat down with Townhall.com’s Guy Benson for a fascinating interview covering a number of different topics. In “Part II” of the interview, Johnson intimated that he disagreed with his running mate Bill Weld’s one-time suggestion that Stephen Breyer or Merrick Garland would be ideal Supreme Court nominees, and […]
