By John Biver   |   10.02.17
Here is a recent headline from the Independent Journal Review: “Salon: Identity Politics Is ‘Dragging the Progressive Agenda Down.’” IJR’s Pardes Seleha explains that yes, indeed, a “far-left publication” [Salon] is “finally denouncing its long-embraced identity politics…” Salon isn’t the...
Vote Fraudsters Double Their Opportunities
By Robert Knight   |   09.25.17

Connected? Big Government, Labor Decline and Opioid Addiction
By Micah Clark   |   09.20.17
There is a great deal of talk about America’s opioid crisis and what can be done about such drugs.  This has led to a focus on narcotic painkillers.  In reality, America has an addiction problem.  “What might be some of...

What Have Liberals Got to Hide?
By Robert Knight   |   09.06.17
Progressives are in an uproar over the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, and we have to ask why? They claim creating an election integrity commission is a way to advance voter suppression. They truly fear the findings of this commission, and want to disband it as soon as possible.
Charlottesville: A Return to the Topic of Identity Politics
By John Biver   |   09.06.17
It is time to return to our Identity Politics and Paraphilias series, and events surrounding Charlottesville serve as the path back. This focus on identity politics is important because while it’s being written about a lot, in my view it’s still not receiving the serious level of discussion that it deserves. Leftists want to fundamentally transform the United States. Unfortunately, they do not nearly have the level of support they need to accomplish it...
The SPLC: An Anti-Christian Hate Group
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.19.17
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose...
State Politicians Turn Illinois into a ‘Sanctuary State’
By John Biver   |   08.19.17
Most everyone has heard about “sanctuary cities” during the past few years due to the attention they received during the presidential election. But have you heard of sanctuary states? How about sanctuary government buildings? Governor Bruce Rauner has agreed to...
Things Fall Apart: Racists vs. Anarchists
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.16.17
I was hoping not to step into the sticky wicket that the Charlottesville protest, counter-protest, and attack created. All discussions of fault or causation carry the risk of being labeled a bigot or hater. But, for a number of reasons, fearful silence is not a justifiable response.
Conservatives and Christians, Do Not Be Duped By Cultural Marxism
By Tami Jackson   |   08.14.17
Virtually anyone over the age of 25 today has heard of Karl Marx and Marxism, though many remain ignorant of Marx’s history and the subsequent cultural ideology that emerged from aspects of his economic theories. Karl Marx was the grandson...
Female Military Service Members Told to Accept Naked Men in their Showers
By Joshua Denton   |   08.10.17
The Army recently released a new training presentation for troops regarding their interactions with transgender soldiers, and guidelines regarding gender transition in the military. The policy favors the needs and feelings of the individual over the well being of the unit, a practice that is formerly foreign to military protocol.
Military Lethality Demands Rigid Standards With No Exceptions
By Tami Jackson   |   08.04.17
Those first courageous settlers in the new world — circa 1607 — faced peril and hardship to make a new home in this country. They steeled themselves, ready to fight predators and all who would threaten their loved ones and...
Healthcare Reform in Congress Aims to Promote Life
By Monte Larrick   |   08.03.17
U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14th District) says the healthcare status quo is unacceptable. The Republican is hoping market solutions will be used to help bring down rising premiums. With healthcare reform stalled for now, the lawmaker says the budget process might be a good way to defund Planned Parenthood.
Life, Liberty, and Healthcare?
By David E. Smith   |   07.12.17
As Washington D.C. lawmakers wrangle about the details of the so-called "ObamaCare repeal," "progressive" politicians and activists are ramping up their rhetoric. Setting aside the fact that the repeal effort has turned into an effort merely to reform government healthcare and the fact that Congressional leaders are seemingly unwilling to undo the legislation that mandated socialized medicine, I think it is important to once again address the Left's dogmatic narrative that asserts that health care is a human right...

In his recent video for PragerU, National Review senior fellow David French illuminates the political buzzword of “transparency” and the Left’s illicit application of the concept to the private citizen. While the government possesses an obligation to be transparent in...
