    Senate Democrats Blatantly Lied About Hillsdale College

    Every single Democrat senator owes Hillsdale an apology for the blatant lies spread about the college during Senate debate over tax reform.

    Last night, while losing to the GOP in the Great Tax Bill Debate of 2017, Senate Democrats eked out a small victory.

    They persuaded a handful of Senate Republicans to join them to strip from the GOP tax bill a provision characterized as an unjustified earmark for Michigan’s conservative Hillsdale College, a school that famously declines to accept federal funds. READ MORE...

  • Kate Steinle Deserves Better Than Democrats Opposing Deportation of Illegal Aliens

    Kate Steinle Deserves Better Than Democrats Opposing Deportation of Illegal Aliens

    San Francisco, being the proud “sanctuary city” for illegal aliens that it is, will no doubt roll out the welcome wagon for Jose Inez Garcia Zarate the next time he sneaks back into the country.

    And it’s a near-certainty that he will, after he’s deported to Mexico for a sixth time following his acquittal Thursday by a San Francisco jury in the fatal shooting of Kate Steinle on July 1, 2015, on a pier on the city’s waterfront.

    The needless death of the 32-year-old Steinle has rightly become, in criminal justice parlance, “Exhibit A” for the need for President Donald Trump’s proposed measures to strengthen border security. READ MORE...

    If a Christian Baker’s Rights Are Violated, We All Lose. Here’s Why.

    Religious freedom has set our nation apart from the very beginning.

    Among its many benefits, religious freedom allows religious individuals and groups to make unique contributions to the public good. And those contributions are massive—from founding countless universities and hospitals to funding charities and the arts.

    The economic byproduct of religious liberty is also noteworthy. Religious groups and religiously motivated businesses like Masterpiece Cakeshop contribute $1.2 trillion to the U.S. economy each year. READ MORE...

  • How Prayers Saved My Life During The First Iraq War

    How Prayers Saved My Life During The First Iraq War

    When a murderous gunman mercilessly slaughtered 26 innocent men, woman, and children, many of the nation’s leaders called the nation to prayer. Among the first was President Donald Trump, who was in Japan on an extended trip to Asia.

    The president appealed to God to be with the people of Sutherland; “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas.” The president added, “All Americans pray to God to help the wounded and the families of the victims.” House Speaker Paul Ryan followed the president’s appeal, saying, “The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.” READ MORE...

    Pro-Life Students Sue Miami University Because It Won’t Let Them Erect a Cross

    Students at the Miami University in Ohio are suing the school after it wouldn’t let them erect a cross on its campus to express their pro-life message.

    Filed by the Alliance Defending Freedom on behalf of Miami University’s Students for Life, the lawsuit alleges that the university violated their rights to free speech and expression because it wouldn’t let them erect a cross on it’s Hamilton campus, which recently hosted an event on the “Perspectives of Free Speech,” according to WLWT5. The suit also asks the university to change its policies regarding campus postage and seeks monetary damages. READ MORE...

    Meet These 2 Trump Judicial Nominees Who Just Fielded Questions in the Senate

    This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee considered two of President Donald Trump’s best nominations to date—Kyle Duncan for the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and David Stras for the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, scheduled the hearing over the protest of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., who refused to return his blue slip on Stras’ nomination.

    After holding out, Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., returned a modified blue slip for Duncan, indicating that Duncan should receive a hearing but not announcing whether he supports the nomination. READ MORE...

  • It’s Time To Repeal The Johnson Amendment And Let Pastors Talk Politics

    It’s Time To Repeal The Johnson Amendment And Let Pastors Talk Politics

    Among the provisions in the House GOP’s tax bill that passed last week and might well make it into the Senate version is a repeal of the 1954 Johnson Amendment, named after then-senator Lyndon Baines Johnson, which prohibits churches and other nonprofit groups from engaging in political activity.

    Rolling back the ban has long been championed by religious leaders who say it unfairly infringes on their First Amendment rights. Certainly, the idea that pastors and other clergy aren’t allowed to weigh in on elections or political issues from the pulpit would have struck the Founding Fathers as not only strange but inimical to the idea of a constitutional republic (especially since one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, John Witherspoon, was a Presbyterian minster).
