    People who have gained coverage since 2013 are positive about the health care reform law, but those who remain uninsured tend to want it repealed Americans have become more accepting of the Affordable Care Act over the last year, and while they may not like it – in fact, nearly twice as many call it a failure as think it a success – an analysis of this year’s Economist/YouGov Polls shows that those who may have become newly insured because of Obamacare are generally pleased with the program.10% of those in the six polls included in this analysis say...

    APRC withdrew its participation from Amplify Austin, a large 24-hour fundraising drive for non-profits this week, after the organization placed restrictions on faith-based groups. The restrictions included that funds from the event could not go to groups that communicate their faith while helping others or promote religious doctrine or instruction. Funding for the non-profit pregnancy centers is vital to their ability to help pregnant women and babies. However, their purpose to minister to both the physical and spiritual needs of these women appeared to be restricted by Amplify Austins new policies. APRC has chosen instead to engage in its own...

    In modern America, we face an enemy which is implacable in its desire to subvert, overthrow, and destroy our traditional American way of life. This enemy goes by many names the Left-wing, progressives, political correctness, cultural Marxists but one name which they have applied to themselves seems to best sum up what their intentions are: social justice warriors. These people refer to themselves this way because they believe it is their purpose in life to crusade against the evils that they think pervade America racism, sexism, homophobia, intolerance and all the rest.

Charles Schumer is calling for passage of legislation prohibiting individuals on the U.S. terrorist watch list from buying guns. The New York Democrat noted the arrests this week of three Brooklyn men on charges they conspired to join ISIS in Syria or carry out attacks at home. If they were on the terrorist watch list, the bill Schumers backing would have prohibited them from buying firearms or explosives.

    March 4, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Although there has always been contraception, its acceptance and practice by society as a whole is a relatively new phenomenon. In the first part of the 20th century barrier methods became through mass production increasingly used. However, with the advent of the hormonal contraceptive pill in the 1960s the contraceptive era, ushering in the sexual revolution, really took off.The term “revolution” is by no means exaggerated, for the result was a fundamental change in the understanding of human sexuality in society. With the pill, people thought, nothing can happen, i.e. no child could be conceived....

For Irans rulers, by contrast, it could be the deal of this young but already bloody century. Based on reports and leaks, the agreement now on offer will leave intact most of Iran's nuclear infrastructure, along...

About 320,000 people filed for first-time unemployment benefits last week, up 7,000 from the previous week, the Labor Department said Thursday. Economists had been expecting claims to fall to 300,000. Claims below that level indicate a strong labor market.

    WASHINGTON -- Readers of this column are familiar with my argument that a conservative tide is sweeping the country, contrary to the mainstream media. In the off-year elections of 2010 and 2014, the gains made by conservatives have been substantial in governors' mansions and in state legislatures. To be sure, they have been substantial in Washington, too, at the House and Senate level, but I would argue that they have been more consequential at the state level. There, old conventions that have been in place since the left-wing 1960s are being heaved out, and a clamor of protest is being...

This decision by Reagan, made against the counsel of some of his senior advisors, had enormous implications for the Soviet Union and theirs leaders knew it.

    Pro-lifers are concerned about the commitment of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, to ending abortion. In a "Fox News Sunday" interview, Walker said he was pro-life but sounded dipassionate about ending abortion if he were elected president. During his reelection campaign, host Chris Wallace noted, Walker ran an ad calling abortion an "agonizing choice" and said he supported legislation that "leaves the final decision to a woman and her doctor." "Do you believe," Wallace asked, "that a woman has a right to end a pregnancy at any point during those nine months?" Walker answered that he's...

    Americas racial composition is changing rapidly. In 2012, the Census Bureau predicted that whites would no longer be the majority group by 2043. This trend is already reshaping many states: during the 2000s, California joined Texas, Hawaii and New Mexico as a state without a majority racial or ethnic group. These demographic shifts have exposed serious deficiencies in American education. African Americans and Latinos make up about 50 percent of Californias high school graduates but less than 17 percent of students in its public university system. According to the Pew Research Center, more blacks and Latinos are enrolling in college,...

    Hillary Clinton probably will remain the inevitable Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, even if only because the Democratic Party is woefully short on viable alternative presidential candidates. A variety of Democratic opinion makers have begun to engage in the unthinkable process of envisioning what a post-Clinton 2016 field might look like if the former secretary of state’s campaign capsizes under the weight of her own carelessness and flagrant disregard for the law. The latest to join the chorus of speculators is National Journal’s Emma Roller who perhaps advertently highlighted the fact that the sitting Vice President of the United States...

For my purposes here, this is an incredibly useful word for illustrating what Barack Obama, and the left-wing in general, have done to our country.

The killing, it seems clear, was a professional hit.

CNN concludes that after consulting with “economists and experts,” they learned that a minimum wage hike to $10.10 would significantly help end child poverty. But if CNN actually talked to the most impoverished families, they would have learned that raising minimum wage, the way Oakland just did, results in maximizing single young mothers and their children living in poverty. Most Americans’ perception of Silicon Valley jobs is “champagne wishes and caviar dreams.” The hottest tech...
