Overturning Roe v. Wade & Fighting for the Unborn
Thirty-seven years ago the United States Supreme Court, in a display of judicial activism and constitutional revisionism at its worst, handed down the ruling in Roe v.

Do we have a legal challange to declare this monstrocity unconstitutional?

The “Planning” That Will Make Weeds From Our Health Care

ATF: All Your Amendment are Belong to Us
As far as the ATF is concerned, the words in the Constitution don’t mean what the Founders said they mean. They mean what the 9 unelected judges on the Supreme Court say they mean.

On Sotomayor… The Great, the Good, the Bad, the Ugly and the Pathetic
The Senate confirmation hearing, committee vote and floor vote have come and gone. Judge Sotomayor is now a member of the United States Supreme Court.
