Why the Democrats are about to HAMMER young people on student loan rates.
You’d think that the Democrats would be capable of basic constituency services. But apparently not: Senate Democrats battled among themselves over student loans Thursday, holding dueling news conferences about the right way to prevent interest rates from doubling in four days. It was an unusual situation for the party with an issue on which it has typically been united. And the split all but guaranteed | Read More »
“Progressive” Sideshow Trivializes IRS Victims for Political Theater
The Left is engaged in a politically motivated sideshow; we are demanding the truth.

The Latest George Soros Group: The Evangelical Immigration Table
A number of evangelical leaders in America joined on to the Evangelical Immigration Table early. They felt a calling and need to help.

Q&A with Rep. Marsha Blackburn on IRFA
Some issues that face us in the tech world get complicated fast, especially when it comes to changing existing Washington regulations. The Internet Radio Fairness Act is one of those messy issues. Please welcome Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, who answered some questions for us on that issue.
