Jim Daly: Focus on The Family Takes Pro-Life Message to Times Square

There’s an old saying that a lie never lives to be old, that the truth will eventually prevail, and that’s certainly true when it comes to the abortion industry.

This Saturday, May 4th we’ll be in Times Square in New York City. We will show live 4D ultrasounds of third-trimester babies. Many don’t want the world to see those images because the abortion industry is predicated on a lie. They say it’s a blob of tissue inside the womb.

Well, it’s not. It’s a baby. Big companies like ABC and Clear Channel have blocked us from purchasing time on the big screens in Times Square. They don’t want you to see the truth.

We’re not letting them stop us though. We’re bringing in our own screen so that everybody in that square, will see life clearly. I hope you’ll check out our event at FocusOnTheFamily.com on Saturday, May 4th at 3:00 PM Eastern Time.

David Davenport: The Green New Deal Looks Red to Me

Perhaps you’ve heard about the Green New Deal?  It’s freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s revolutionary scheme to reinvent the entire American economy.  She calls it “the Great Society, the moonshot, the civil rights movement of our generation.”

But look a little deeper and you’ll see different colors:  the blue of progressivism and mostly the red of government spending and debt.  The proposal calls for a breathtaking $90 billion in green initiatives.

Even mainstream Democrats are hesitant about this sweeping effort to reinvent the economy and eliminate income inequality.  But media darling Ocasio-Cortez will make it front and center.

The first New Deal turns out not to have solved the Great Depression as we once thought.  We hardly need a new one. Is it green? Yes. Is it utopian?  Yes.

But mostly it’s the same old liberal blue of government spending and the red of more debt.

Dan Proft: King’s Legacy Has Become a Shakespearean Tragedy

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry.”

That was Rev. Martin Luther King’s appeal to work as soulcraft in his 1967 “Street Sweeper” speech at New Covenant Baptist Church in Chicago.

All too often, it seems like those words are something close to blasphemy to Leftist elites who invoke his name while seeking to expunge from history those names King called forth.

Shakespeare—invoked by MLK—has today been dropped by Yale as required reading for English Literature majors. And Yale is by no means alone.

King argued the purpose of education was to, “teach one to think intensively and think critically.”

Today, the politicized professoriate would rather students not think for themselves at all.

It’s a Shakespearean tragedy for black and white alike that so few of today’s students do.
