Abortion doctor killed newborns with scissors
Yesterday, the trial of abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell, charged with killing as many as seven newborn babies with scissors, revealed additional chilling facts. Adrienne Moton, an employee of Gosnell’s, admitted to snipping the necks of “a good ten fetuses.” Ten. The prosecution alleges that Gosnell made it his practice to send untrained employees in to administer sedatives and pain killers to pregnant women. At least | Read More »
#PrimaryGraham was a trending hashtag on twitter earlier this week referring to the effort to put up a strong primary opponent to Senator Lindsey Graham in the Republican primary in South Carolina. Graham has been a thorn in the side of conservatives for a long time. He does damage to the GOP whenever possible. Like his best friend forever, John McCain, he considers himself a | Read More »
Why is NLRC opposing the protection of unborn babies?
The Arkansas legislature has made me so proud I could cry. The measure, S.B. 134/H.B. 1037, known as the Arkansas Human Heartbeat Protection Act, prevents unborn children from being aborted after the person’s heart is beating except in cases of rape, incest, life of the mother and if the child is at risk of not living soon after birth. If this isn’t good enough, they | Read More »
Does the U.S. Govt have the power to kill you on American soil?
This is a question we have discussed repeatedly over the past few weeks. To be clear, the Justice Department has explicitly stated that its newfound power to assassinate American citizens is only to be used outside the United States’ borders. However, its legal justification for distinguishing between inside of border and outside of border, left me wanting. The official U.S. policy on drone assassinations, | Read More »
Losing faith in teacher unions
Republicans in the Alabama state government recently passed an education bill that will allow parents of children in underperforming schools to be given tax credits to send their children to schools that are actually succeeding in educating children – whether they are public or private. A bit surprisingly, state Democrats opposed the measure saying that it opened the door to . . . school vouchers. | Read More »
Is Obama the worst manager the country has ever seen?
President Barack Obama doesn’t agree with the Sequestration cuts that he proposed and pushed. Presumably, he felt more-or-less indifferent to the relatively minor cuts until the numbers came out at the end of the last month suggesting that the U.S. economy actually shrank. Now, the Administration is in full panic mode. They are rattling all sabers against the cages on every front. Either Obama is | Read More »
Are DC Republicans purposely shrinking the GOP tent?
Fresh off Republican Governor Bob McDonnell’s tax hike law in Virginia this past weekend, DC fundraising republicans are attacking Ken Cuccinelli. Anonymous media sources have lodged their disapproval of Republican Gubernatorial nominee, Ken Cuccinelli. Apparently, at least two, rich, country club republicans went really hard after the AG at a DC fundraiser last week. These Republicans weren’t concerned that he wasn’t pro-business or pro-growth enough….. | Read More »
Obama’s growing executive power
In last week’s State of the Union Address, President Obama repeatedly asked Congress to pass legislation, followed by a promise (or a threat) that if the legislature chose not to legislate – the executive would. On climate change, the President promised, “But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will.” During the SOTU and shorty after, the President and his team promised | Read More »
1.6 billion bullets for domestic use
The story that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.6 Billion rounds of ammunition is going mainstream. It began as a story for Alex Jones and WorldNet but is quickly making its way into the mainstream. Liberals will continue to view concern over DHS’s arsenal as conspiracy theorist. But many conservatives seem to be uniting in asking why DHS needs that many bullets. The | Read More »
VA General Assembly Transportation Plan remains a terrible deal for Virginians
Yesterday, the VA Senate voted to amend the House Bill on Transportation, the House bill was a tax increase. This one is worse. The link at the bottom provides earlier details about how we arrived here. The Senate bill raises taxes by $900 million a year! Keep in mind that Republicans have a super-majority in the House and 20/20 R/D split in the Senate, with | Read More »
