Trump’s approval numbers continue to improve to the chagrin of the Media Establishment

By Dave Andrusko This is the last post of the week so it will be brief. At 2:49 this afternoon, NBC News posted a story, “NBC News poll: Biden, Sanders and Warren lead 2020 field.” But if you reached that story via clicking on AOL, you see the headline was different: “Trump’s approval ticks upwards …

By Dave Andrusko Going forward, I know that every time the usual suspects bash President Trump for “false” or “distorted” comments about Democrats and their ever-more-extreme posture on abortion, I will now think of a new video ad put out by the Republican National Committee The video was described by one reporter as a “brutal …

Indiana AG will take a different route to salvage state law banning the dismemberment of living unborn babies

By Dave Andrusko In a strategic decision, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill announced Wednesday that rather than appeal a federal judge’s order blocking the state’s ban on dismemberment abortion from going into effect, his office will proceed to summary judgment.

Critics of Abortion Pill Reversal steadfastly avoid evidence APR does save babies

By Dave Andrusko I love pro-abortion outlets that tout their “fact-based” even “award winning” journalism. Especially so when they are so cavalier about ignoring facts that don’t support their narratives. So Rewire News tells us that the state of North Dakota “reached an agreement with plaintiffs last week that it would not begin enforcing HB …

Initial hostility that turns into genuine friendship reminds us never to burn bridges

By Dave Andrusko One of the many terrific workshops I visited while covering National Right to Life’s annual convention was put on by the charismatic Pat Castle, the founder and sustainer of Liferunners.org. Being a runner of very modest distances and very much impressed with his presentation, I signed up and received a very nice …
