Amendment 1 Proponents Double-Talk on Independent Contractors

Plus how recent (June 30) U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Presents a New Impediment to Proponents

This article continues addressing a ballot measure that Illinois voters must vote on this election cycle.
We urge voters to reject Amendment 1, a constitutional amendment that
would elevate collective bargaining rights in the Illinois Constitution,
allowing government union contracts to override state law.

At the September 29 Amendment 1 virtual editorial endorsement interview hosted by the Daily Herald, two panelists from Shaw Media including Scott Holland participated. … Continue Reading

Democrats Get More Radical: Demand Court Packing

Written by Mia Gradick & Jorge Gomez

One political party appears to be turning more radical by the minute. Recent polls suggest the Democrat Party holds extreme positions regarding the U.S. Constitution and the structure of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Nearly one in four Democrats (23%) say the U.S. Constitution is “no longer a relevant document,” based on a new poll from Echelon Insights. Additionally, a recent Heartland/Rasmussen survey found nearly half of Democrats (49%) believe the Constitution “should be mostly or completely rewritten.”… Continue Reading

Democrats Are Taking Crazy To A New Level

Written by Robert Knight

You know, things haven’t always been this crazy.

I’m rereading a Robert Ludlum thriller, “The Sigma Protocol” (2001), in which two young Americans are tracking a post-war cabal of Nazi-connected business titans who — what else? — conspire to take over the world.

The Americans — a man and a woman — confront an elderly Nazi in Argentina who defends the monster Dr. Mengele’s hideous concentration camp experiments. This furthered medical science, the old Nazi says, so we all benefit.… Continue Reading

Conservatives Are Finally Winning a Culture War. Time to Double Down.

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Historically, even when conservatives appear to be temporarily winning on some issue, it’s really a sign of losing ground long-term to every leftward shift of the Overton window of politics. For example, as we temporarily appear to be winning on one cultural onslaught of the left, it’s only because we long ceded the previous battle, leaving leftists with new territory to claim, which they inexorably do. However, there are signs that with the transgender obsession, the Overton window might be shifting to the right – for the first time ever!… Continue Reading

A Lofty Fight Against The Left’s Godless Modernity

Written by Robert Knight

Deep in the Swiss Alps, a legendary retreat center is a spiritual oasis in an otherwise secular desert. And, no, regrettably, I am not writing from there.

Called L’Abri, it was founded by Christian thinker and writer Francis Schaeffer and his wife Edith, also a gifted writer. Since the 1950s, it has been a pilgrimage stop for thousands.

Visitors often have to do dishes and light housework, but they get to hear profound discussions of the Things That Matter.… Continue Reading

The Fight Over Abortion Continues

Written by Kristi Shaffer

The U.S. Supreme Court decision of Dodd v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade, is a victory for all who support life. The decision ends federal protection of abortion and sends the subject back to individual states to determine how and if abortion will be allowed in the state. It is estimated that at least 26 states will have strong restrictions or bans on abortion. While it indeed should be celebrated, conservatives should not let our guard down; the war for the pro-life community wages on.… Continue Reading

SCOTUS Unleashes the Left’s Outrage

Written by Robert Knight

You know it’s a good sign when President Joe Biden and lefty celebrities go bat crazy.

At a press conference in Spain, Mr. Biden trashed the U.S. Supreme Court as “destabilizing” because of its “outrageous” rulings on abortion and guns. He pledged to do an end-run on the U.S. Senate filibuster to pass a national abortion bill.

On June 24, a 6-3 court majority overturned Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.… Continue Reading

Saving the Lives of Millions of Children Not Just a ‘Political Victory’

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Last week the Supreme Court of the United States handed down a number of rulings reaffirming an originalist interpretation of America’s Constitution and its federalist assumptions. Perhaps the most important of these was the decision to rescind Roe v. Wade and return the issue of abortion to the people and their respective states, where it belonged in the first place. This was a tremendous victory for millions of faithful Christians who have fought for decades to see this day.… Continue Reading

Democrats’ Latest Obsession, The New ‘War on Women’

Written by Robert Knight

We’re in another season of orchestrated, obsessive hysteria.

This time, thanks to the unprecedented leak of a U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion, it’s about abortion.

Earlier obsessions were the Russian collusion hoax, the Trump phone call to Ukraine’s president asking about Biden family corruption (the shocking scale of which is still media-suppressed), the Trump impeachments, the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

A couple of other stories have made it through the media’s lockstep coverage.… Continue Reading

Romney, Murkowski and Collins: Weak-kneed Republicans

Written by Robert Knight

What part of a judge being soft on child pornography offenders don’t they understand?

Having embraced every perversion under the sun and proclaimed it all good, Democrats in the U.S. Senate predictably voted 50-0 on Thursday to affirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.

That would include Joe Manchin. The senator from West Virginia has stood in the gap against some of the Democrats’ worst schemes like “Build Back Better.”… Continue Reading
