This has been an incredibly important session of the Supreme Court and it has come with big wins for religious liberty. In a series of three decisions, the nation’s highest court ruled, first, that a state that offers financial support to private schools cannot exclude religious schools, second, that religious schools are free to employ teachers consistent with their religious beliefs, and third, that employers cannot be forced to provide contraceptive coverage if it would violate their religious or moral conscience.
It is hard—close to impossible, in fact—to overestimate the importance of these three Supreme Court decisions. Two of them were handed down just Wednesday
Once again, we are reminded of the importance of the Supreme Court and of the fact that the future of that court—and all federal courts—now hangs in the balance in the 2020 election.
Just imagine the disaster of losing any one of these decisions, much less all three.Read More »

And I could go on and on.
When you’ve got the left saying up is down and blue is red, then you’ve got obviously an inversion of truth and objectivity in the media.
The need for alternative voices—like mine—and alternative outlets—like the one you’re listening to right now—has never been greater.

With the news dominated by Covid-19 and racial injustice, you might not remember one of the big stories of the past year: the rise of socialism. Previously a dirty word, socialism became popular among young people and polled well with Democrats.
