By Dave Andrusko As the preliminaries pick up speed in the run up to the 2020 presidential election, those Republicans who were/are/and forever will be Never-Trumpers find themselves in a bind.

Another lame pro-abortion attack on the Hyde Amendment

By Dave Andrusko Say what you will about the delusional nature of their insistence, it’s refreshing when pro-abortionists stop beating around the bush and just announce that it is your and my obligation to pay for their abortions.
