Gorsuch Survives Hearing, Is Well on His Way to Joining the Supreme Court
It’s all over but the voting. Judge Neil Gorsuch survived his second and final day of having to listen to senators pontificate and now is well on his way to becoming Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch.
To be fair, there were plenty of occasions where he was less forthcoming than even previous nominees, like when asked whether this or that ancient case was correctly decided or how to interpret particular constitutional clauses. By my count, he took all of four firm legal positions during his testimony
House Postpones Vote on RINOCare because the Votes Aren’t There
House establishment Republican leaders postponed Thursday’s planned vote on the American Health Care Act, aka RINOCare because some conservatives in the House are actually standing on their principles to see Obamacare fully repealed, which the current legislation before the House does not do, despite the White House’s attempt to say otherwise.
The strongest stand against the bill comes from the House Freedom Caucus, headed by Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC).
On Thursday afternoon, Meadows
Study: Senate Can Repeal Obamacare’s Regulations through Reconciliation, with Only 51 Votes
President Trump pledged during the presidential campaign to deliver legislation that “fully repeals Obamacare.” By forcing the House to a vote on a bill that does not repeal the health insurance regulations that are the driving force behind the Affordable Care Act’s skyrocketing premiums and low-quality coverage, Republican leaders are abandoning the president’s pledge. The leadership
4-Year-Old Boy Saves Mom’s Life by Using Siri
Siri is the popular Apple app that is voice activated and provides funny responses to random questions, but also provides helpful information. The latter was demonstrated recently by a 4-year-old boy in London, who was able to use Siri to call for an ambulance and save his mother’s life.
On March 7, the quick thinking little boy named Roman unlocked his mother’s <a id="amznPsBmLink_4321601" class="amzn_ps_bm_tl" href="http://amazon.com/s/ref=as_li_bk_tl/?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=iPhone&tag=freedomoutpos-20&linkId=bf130c466de962b791a346fcfbb4deca&linkCode=ktl
Trump’s Big Problems: Anemic Private Investment and Weak Productivity
Why was the Great Depression so deep, and why did it drag on for so long? According to impressive research by Robert Higgs of the Independent Institute, it was because President Roosevelt abandoned his campaign promises of 1932: to cut federal spending, to balance the budget, to maintain a sound currency, and to rein in Washington’s bureaucracy. Instead, Roosevelt switched gears. Roosevelt and the Congress, according to Higgs, produced a “bewildering, incoherent mass of new expenditures

Gun Owners of America Warns RINOCare Still Contains Gun Control
Gun Owners of America has come out against the American Health Care Act, aka RINOCare, because it continues to have measures in it that allow doctors, insurance companies and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to use medical records to push a gun control agenda, something our Constitution specifically says cannot be done lawfully.
GOA openly opposed Obamacare because of the threats to the rights of Americans that
The Worst Retail Cataclysm Ever: Sears Warns It Is On The Verge Of Collapse As Payless Prepares To File For Bankruptcy
More than 3,500 retail stores are going to close all across America over the next few months as the worst retail downturn in U.S. history gets even deeper. Earlier this week, Sears shocked the world when it announced that there is “substantial doubt” that the company will be able to “continue as a going concern” much longer. In other words, Sears has announced that it is on the verge of imminent collapse. Meanwhile, Payless stunned the retail industry when it came out that they
Why Do Women Need Apologetics?
Charles Spurgeon has said, “Defend the Bible? I would as soon defend a lion! Unchain it and it will defend itself.”
Indeed, God’s Word needs no defending, for it is truth (John 17:17) and it is eternal (Isaiah 40:8; 1 Peter 1:25). It is through this enduring Word that God the Father, by the power of His Holy Spirit, brings people to repentance and faith in the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 10:17).
Saving faith is found in the person and work of Jesus Christ alone, whose perfect life
Senate to Vote Thursday on GOP Bill to Reverse FCC’s Rules Regarding Internet Privacy
A GOP-sponsored bill in the US Senate reverse the FCC’s rules regarding the protection of privacy of consumers who use the internet, and that bill is up for a vote on Thursday!
It’s interesting how this bill has basically gotten no mainstream coverage, isn’t it? While the Senate had lively oratory over the measure on Wednesday, there was barely any coverage of that debate.
C-SPAN captured the debate. The debate begins around the 6:53:00 mark.
Senator Ed Markey (D-MA)
