    Fight at the Museum

    You can't put a price tag on women's contributions to America -- but Congress is trying. For almost 20 years, liberals have batted around the idea of building a National Women's History Museum in D.C. as a way to draw attention to the untold stories and accomplishments of America's daughters. Who could be opposed to that? Plenty of people, once ... (more)

    Trafficking Bill Gets Green Light from House

    "I thought it only happened in poor countries," Sister Gladys Leigh told reporters. But, like too many people, the St. Louis nun underestimated the strong grip of sex trafficking. Now a volunteer at St. Louis's shelter for recovering sex slaves, Leigh and others know all too well the dark and horrifying world of forced prostitution. Over and over ... (more)

    Independence or in Dependence?

    It's been 50 years and 20 trillion dollars since President Lyndon Johnson's famous speech declaring war on poverty. What's the report from the frontlines? The number of poor people hasn't shrunk -- and neither has the government. In fact, quite the opposite. Fighting poverty became an excuse to expand bureaucracy, 92 programs worth. And now, five ...

    Ain't That a Kick in the HUD...

    The government may be desperate for homeless shelters -- but not desperate enough to give up their liberal agenda. Instead of partnering with ministries, the Obama administration seems bent on preventing them from helping the hurting. At Cincinnati's City Gospel Mission Roger Howell says the group has more needs than it has beds -- a problem it ... (more)

    The Left's Trafficking Cops

    Liberals care about fighting sex trafficking -- but not all care enough to partner with Christians who are. To them, the church's involvement is less about helping the hurting and more about a hidden agenda of religious conversion. In an eye-opening piece by Melissa Gira Grant, Salon.com treats the faith-based movement's involvement with deep ... (more)

    ObamaCare: Here Today, Oregon Tomorrow

    If it's possible to do a worse job on health care than the federal government, Oregon has. The Beaver State is making ObamaCare history this week, becoming the first state to quit its own exchange and move to the federal system. After sinking $130 million into Cover Oregon, the state's enrollment program, the system's bugs were so irreparable that ... (more)

    Rand Casts a Paul over Life Debate

    Republicans are still months away from kicking off the presidential race -- and that's a good thing for front-runners like Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who could use the extra time to hone their messaging. In four years, the Kentucky leader has won over plenty of fans for his solid record on a whole range of issues, including life. But today, it isn't ... (more)

    IRS: Bad to the Bonus

    Whoever said "cheaters never prosper" obviously didn't work at the IRS! There, it seems employees do a great job of collecting everyone's taxes but their own. As if Americans needed another reason to seethe over the agency, government officials are pulling the curtain back on even more corruption. The latest bombshell comes courtesy of the ... (more)

    The GOP's Marry-Go-Round

    Whoever declared an end to the marriage debate must not have consulted Republicans. While the media is busy eulogizing one of the hottest issues of the last 15 years, those who vote for GOP candidates are saying, "not so fast!" Turns out, pronouncing marriage dead is convenient -- but not credible. Earlier this spring, FRC and American Values ... (more)

    Cloners Eggs-periment with Disaster

    While millions of people were busy hiding eggs for kids, scientists were hunting for eggs. Human ones. While researchers in London are growing noses, ears, and blood vessels with ethical stem cells, some scientists are still stubbornly plowing ahead with their morally dubious methods. Just last week, scientists from the U.S. and Korea broke the ... (more)
