    GOP Holds Military's Fleet to the Fire
    July 21, 2017

    If liberals thought the debate over military sex changes was over, they underestimated the American people!  Even Republicans have been stunned by the level of outrage over the policy, which has been lighting up phones on Capitol Hill since last Friday, when 23 GOP members agreed that $3.7 billion in transgender ...

    Dems Can't Beat around John Bush
    July 21, 2017

    If you thought your to-do list was long, you should see the U.S. Senate’s.  Bogged down by health care, confirmations, and a basket of looming spending bills, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) had no choice but to extend the chamber’s working hours.  Now, a lot of that persistence is paying off -- despite the Democrats’ efforts to derail the Senate’s ...

    DOJ's Sessions Saves FACE
    July 21, 2017

    When did it become news for a government agency to enforce the law?  I suppose after eight years of an Obama administration that didn’t.  In less than six months at the Justice Department, Attorney General Jeff Sessions probably didn’t think he’d make headlines for doing his job.  But that’s what happens after two terms of lawlessness and an administration ...

    July 20, 2017

    The temperature is sizzling in D.C. -- but it’s nothing compared to the heat on Congress.  As if there weren’t enough incentive to repeal Obamacare, the conservative movement just gave the Republicans more: next year’s election.  Voters have been a patient bunch as Republicans fumble their way through the health care debate, but their tolerance is wearing thin.  ...

    Four Objections -- and Answers -- to Religious Liberty!
    July 20, 2017

    Religious liberty has always been controversial. Even in America, with its history of religious dissent and with the Constitution's affirmative protection of the right to the "free exercise" of one's faith, the very idea of positive religious liberty is objectionable to a great many persons. Religious liberty is on the defensive today, now perhaps as much as ever in our nation’s history. ... (more)


    Defense Dollars: MIA after Trans Vote?
    July 20, 2017

    If Republicans go along with Obama’s “sex-changes-for-the-troops” idea, it could cost them a lot more than $3.7 billion!  It may cost them their defense budget.  Turns out, the military’s top leaders aren’t the only ones steaming about the Left’s transgender push.  So are voters.  Calls and emails have been pouring into ...
