Earlier this month, a Virginia high school teacher was fired over his declining to use a transgender student’s preferred gender pronouns.

In June 2017, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit of a Minnesota mother, Annmarie Calgaro, whose then 17-year-old son was emancipated from her by a county and several medical clinics without any due process on the mother’s part.

Earlier this month, New Jersey became the latest state to institute a policy threatening parental rights — adding to a growing nationwide hostility to the already fragile institution of the family.

Recent statewide policy proposals in both Delaware and Ohio have captured the attention of national media outlets and highlight a growing phenomenon of government infringement on parental rights, one which has triggered a political firestorm.

Conservatives are well aware of the corrupt nature of politicians and their pay-to-play schemes. Many politicians will support legislation or policy changes for the right price. Often times special interest groups donate money or hold massive fundraisers for politicians with a wink-and-a-nod agreement that, in exchange for their campaign donations, their prized legislation will advance. […]

What good are social conservative donors when they appear to concede the most important battles for religious liberty? One of the most significant races […]


With midterm primary battles now heating up nationwide, one race conservatives should pay close attention to is in Pennsylvania, where three Republicans are vying to take on the incumbent Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf. The vote seems likely to be a close one. According to a recent poll of 800 GOP likely voters in Pennsylvania released […]


This article was originally posted at Townhall. Our nation’s elites are waging war on the American people, wielding the institutions they’ve spent several decades capturing to punish those who disagree with their preferred positions and to deny them the ability to speak publicly, all in an effort to stifle free and open debate. And no, this isn’t a […]

As its revenue declines, Planned Parenthood is reportedly trying to increase business by moving into a new market: transgender hormones. More women are apparently realizing that Planned Parenthood is not a great source of health care after all, as evidenced by the abortion giant’s 2016-2017 annual report showing decreasing numbers in both abortions and patients […]


This article was originally posted at Townhall. Conservative news sources were shaken up for a few days this summer when several outlets picked up Rolling Stone Magazine’s story on Tim Gill, “Meet the Megadonor Behind the LGBTQ Rights Movement.” The greatest concern was with Gill’s pledge to “punish the wicked” by passing laws in swing and Southern […]


This month, the Maricopa County Library District canceled an event at their annual LibraryCon called “Reading With the Queens.” The event, in which three drag queens were to read diversity and tolerance-themed stories to children, was canceled by the Library District’s administration citing it had “no connection to the spirit of the LibraryCon event” and […]


In a race with national implications, Virginia GOP state Delegate Bob Marshall was defeated by his Democratic opponent Danica Roem after being outspent by more than $400,000, an absurdly enormous amount of money for a small House of Delegates race. Roem received approximately 11,000 votes at a total cost of almost $60 per vote. This […]

Bob Marshall and Democrat Danica […]


Donald Trump is often mocked for his mantra “fake news,” not because he is wrong but because the two-syllable sound-bite is inarticulate and leaves itself wide open for pedantic criticism. Clever ideologues can easily turn it around on him when he is inaccurate with his own statements. However, there is a truth lurking behind the […]


Politico’s Morning Education recently discussed the efforts of a California education committee to comply with a 2011 state law requiring that social studies textbooks teach about “the role and contributions of” eight different identity groups including “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans…and members of other ethnic and cultural groups, to the economic, political, and social […]
