    Flour Power: Bakers Stick to Beliefs Despite Pressure

    In a politically correct world, the costs of running a business are a lot more than dollars and cents. For Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of a small Oregon bakery, the price is their First Amendment rights.

    IRS: Inalienable Rights Suppressor?

    If you thought giving money to the IRS was frustrating, try handing it your First Amendment rights. Under the Democrats' new rule, conservative activists may have no choice. In the run up to the 2014 elections, the President's party can't hide from their scandalous record, but they can certainly keep the opposition from talking about it. That ... (more)

    Revisiting the Statute of Liberty

    On any given day, the line into the National Archives can stretch for blocks.

    Bible Belt Won't Buckle on Marriage

    After watching from a distance as the marriage debate ignited out west, Oklahomans were horrified yesterday to see the battle march directly into their backyards.

    Omnibus or Omnibust? Congress Debates Trillion-Dollar Deal

    This New Year's, one person who isn't going on a diet is Uncle Sam. In the spending package released yesterday, Congress blows by the old sequester caps, giving leaders a trillion-dollar rope to string along taxpayers.

    Obama's Same-sex Marriage Ring Leader

    Justice Secretary Eric Holder was already held in contempt of Congress -- but a Supreme Court reprimand may not be far behind.

    On Abortion, GOP Puts Tax Dollars in Life Savings

    Sending in your taxes shouldn't mean signing over your beliefs. But when it comes to issues like abortion, that's exactly what the Obama administration is asking America to do.

    Wedding Bills Ring on Capitol Hill

    It's been a convenient talking point of the media that Republicans haven't said much about the marriage debate since the Supreme Court's summer ruling. Today, they let their legislation do the talking. After a string of bad court decisions, Congress is stepping in to do the job that five justices did not: protect state marriage laws. Under the ...

    Gatesway to Truth

    If President Obama was hoping to regain his political footing in 2014, a new "tell-all" book just made that job a lot tougher. The 594-page PR nightmare is set to hit shelves next Tuesday, but the excerpts are already sending shockwaves through D.C. The book, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, is a lengthy look back at Defense Secretary Robert ... (more)
