I’m Done With The Democrats’ ‘Good Intentions’

Written by Robert Knight

I used to chalk up liberal policy failures to good intentions gone awry.

Having embraced liberalism in college, I thought it was the best way to help poor people. But as evidence mounted that it hurt them, I had to reassess. Many people also do that after taxes shred their paychecks, especially if they marry and have children.

This is one reason Democrats have been reflexively hostile to marriage, using the courts to redefine it.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: David Shestokas To Run for Illinois Attorney General (Part 2)

Written by Jenna Smith

Welcome to part two of Monte Larrick’s conversation with David Shestokas, attorney and Republican candidate for Illinois Attorney General. In this Spotlight, the discussion turns to Governor Pritzker’s abuse of his emergency powers and executive orders – a deliberate overreach that has been enabled by the legislature’s abdication of their authority, as well as the failure of Kwame Raoul (the current Attorney General) to protect the public interests of the citizens of Illinois and to enforce the law set forth in the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act.… Continue Reading

Climate Change Is an Ever-Moving Target

Written by Walker Wildmon

[Last] week, over 400 private jets flew into Glasgow, Scotland, for the annual UN Climate Change Conference, also known as the Conference of the Parties (COP26). The entire climate change movement is built on the belief that man is in control of the climate and that we are contributing to the change of the climate because we emit carbon through various common energy sources.

Whether it be driving a gas-burning car, flying a jet that uses jet fuel, or warming your home with electricity that is produced by coal, all of these are modern-day examples of humans polluting the planet and creating climate change, according to those who submit to this belief system.… Continue Reading

Marter: Underwood Owes The Nursing Community and Constituents an Apology

U.S. Congressional Candidate James Marter called on Lauren Underwood to apologize to the Nursing Community and her constituents for deceiving them and endangering their lives.

During her first run for Congress, Underwood boasted of her experience in Health and Human Services, preparing for and responding to public health crises. Similarly, she touted her nursing career, although the New York Times has since exposed that she had “never really worked with patients.”

“Much of the Congresswoman’s rhetoric appears to be geared to gaining political office, rather than sharing truth.… Continue Reading

Parental Educational Rights and Religious Liberty: The Yoder Case Revisited

Written by Dr. John A. Sparks

Throughout the country, parents are concerned that some public schoolboards, administrators, and associations hold them in disdain and fear their input when they raise legitimate questions about the direction of their local schools. Just short of 50 years ago (1972), the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a decision that protects parents in the educational choices they make for their children—Wisconsin v. Yoder. Revisiting Yoder nearly a half-century later is more than a historical exercise. … Continue Reading

Time to Fight For Your Kids; Their Souls Are in the Balance

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

If you feel as if you are watching the intentional destruction of your culture and your kids, you’re right. It’s not just a bad dream. It is real. It’s planned. It’s targeted. It’s relentless. And it is being carried out in your own back yard in your own public schools.

It doesn’t matter where you live. Whether it be in the crazy land of Gavin Newsom or the bumbling buffoonery of the Beltway, you now reside in Oceania, and your children are Winston.… Continue Reading

The Cultural Shift Behind the Republican Tsunami

Written by Robert Knight

Something is happening out there. It looks for all the world like a punch-drunk fighter rising to his feet, shaking off the cobwebs and decking his opponent.

Republicans in Virginia swept all statewide offices and flipped the U.S. House last Tuesday. The folks at CNN and MSNBC were on the verge of hysteria. They channeled enfant terrible climate activist Greta Thunberg shouting, “How dare you!”

In New Jersey, a political neophyte truck driver apparently defeated the state Senate president.… Continue Reading
