    Are Republicans out of the Doghouse with Voters?
    February 05, 2018

    Americans might miss summer, but Republicans sure don't. Six months ago, the GOP was starting down a bitter defeat on their biggest issue -- Obamacare -- and wondering how to climb out of the political basement. A half-year later, that's exactly what they've done. Thanks to a president who refused to chase polls, congressional Republicans finally have reason to feel optimistic. (continue reading...)

    The Costa Isn't Clear on Same-sex Marriage
    February 05, 2018

    Americans aren't the only ones struggling to come to terms with same-sex marriage. Two and a half years after the Supreme Court forced a new definition of marriage on the U.S., Costa Ricans are reeling from a similar nightmare -- only this time, from an international court with no respect for national sovereignty.

    The Left's Latest Attempt to Program Kids
    February 05, 2018

    If you haven't heard of "Social emotional learning" (SEL), you're not alone. SEL is a new catchphrase that's starting to permeate public education policy. An organization called the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is SEL's primary mover, and it claims that injecting its SEL agenda into all pre-K and K-12 curricula will cultivate in children the attitudes, feelings, and behaviors necessary for academic achievement.  (continue reading...)

    Libs Flood Brooks on Abortion
    February 05, 2018

    How badly does the Left want to retake control of Congress? Not badly enough to rethink its strategy on abortion, apparently. If Democrats' obsession with the issue is costing the party elections, they don't want to hear it. Even from their own. (continue reading...)

    Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Should Treat the Law Equally
    February 02, 2018

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a decades-old agency first created to enforce federal employment nondiscrimination laws -- which have extensive authority in public and private employment. Much of its work concerned the proper enforcement of civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination because of one's race, color, national origin, sex, and religion. (continue reading...)

    Reactions to Trump's Policies Are Telling
    February 02, 2018

    Newton's third law of motion says that for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. If that's true of the physical world, then it's abundantly evident in the political world. If a president is gaining ground in an area, then the level of resistance from the opposition rises. (continue reading...)

    Freedom Gets Its Ambassador in Brownback
    February 02, 2018

    Yesterday afternoon, I was honored to attend the swearing in of my friend Sam Brownback as the next Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom. Years from now, I believe we will look back on yesterday as a defining moment in turning back the tide on what is now being recognized as the worst period of religious persecution in world history.  (continue reading...)

    Kentucky Gov. Stands up for Kneeling Down
    February 01, 2018

    In the past decade or so, there's been a shift in our culture. Maybe you've noticed it too. Calls for prayer in the wake of tragedies, something that used to almost universally embraced, is now met with cynicism and outright hostility. (continue reading...)

    HHS Targeted for Anti-Faith Purge
    February 01, 2018

    The president laid out a compelling plan for the year in his State of the Union address, but it's important to remember that the key to good policy is good personnel. So, it's no surprise that anti-faith liberals are attacking some of the appointees in this administration, especially in one of the largest and most powerful departments, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which has been the nemesis of conservatives, especially under Barack Obama.

    Baptist Leaders: Trump No Wedge for Evangelicals
    February 01, 2018

    The mainstream media has had a lot to say lately about evangelicals and President Trump. You may recall last fall when they openly mocked me and other evangelical leaders for praying over President Trump in the Oval Office and then sneered the president's enthusiastic reception at the Values Voter Summit. (continue reading...)
