Again and again the “Top …Continue reading "The Winners and Losers of the Democrat Debacle (aka Debate)"
By Dave Andrusko The timing is exquisite, in a demented sort of way. Smarting from having lost the 2016 presidential election in the Midwest, the Democratic National Committee announced today that it will hold its presidential convention in Milwaukee July 13-16, 2020. It will be, as the Washington Examiner observed, the “first time the party …Continue reading "Democrats chose Milwaukee for 2020 national convention. Party’s Presidential candidates more unswervingly pro-abortion than ever"
By Dave Andrusko 26 days until the 2018 mid-term elections. We know that pro-life control of the House and the Senate could both be at risk.

By Dave Andrusko Reading the high profile media powerhouses which is the Washington Post, is to marvel at a publication at war with itself. The Post threw everything, including two kitchen sinks, at Donald Trump in an attack so hysterical it bordered on paranoid. Now, with a pro-lifer about to occupy the White House, the …Continue reading "Faced with the crushing defeats of their pro-abortion Democratic allies, Media Establishment desperately attempts to right the ship"

By Dave Andrusko Once upon a time pro-abortion editorial pages, such as the Richmond [Va.] Times-Dispatch, could console themselves with the illusion that Democrats really did sort of, kind of actually believe that abortion should be “safe, legal and rare.” As many of our readers will recall this was the rhetorical flourish pro-abortion to the …Continue reading "Pro-abortion editorial page laments “Democratic extremism on abortion”"
By Dave Andrusko The headline in the Las Vegas Review-Journal read, “No drama at Nevada Republicans’ two-day state convention.” It was an allusion to reporter Sandra Chereb’s description of the GOP convention held in Reno to choose the 30 delegates who will attend the National Republican Convention in July in Cleveland . It could have …Continue reading "Nevada GOP retains strongly pro-life platform plank"
By Karen Cross, National Right to Life Political Director This has been an incredibly busy, absolutely insane election year. It seems as if we’ve been in election mode for an eternity.
