Say NO To Rep. Mike McCaul As DHS Secretary

President Trump’s greatest challenge at the Department of Homeland Security is getting rid of Obama-era people, thinking and policies. Nominating Rep. Mike McCaul as Secretary of Homeland Security would be tantamount to appointing an Obama holdover to run DHS.

Not Giving Up–Until Abortion Is Held in the Contempt It Deserves

Tony Perkins, CNS News

If abortion groups are trying to keep a low profile, they’re not doing a very good job of it. While Congress debates whether taxpayers should fund the likes of Planned Parenthood, the industry has spent the last six months trying to avoid headlines. That will be impossible now, thanks to a federal judge who’s threatening to send the man responsible for exposing the grisly business to jail.

The Extreme Barbarism and Cruelty of Abortion: Gosnell’s ‘House of Horrors’

Nora Sullivan, CNS News

The Gosnell case was indeed a pivotal moment.  Not only did it allow the public a rare glimpse of the reality of abortion, but it also revealed the true colors of the abortion lobby.  While their rhetoric claims that they care about women, their actions have shown that they are more interested in the abortion industry’s bottom line.

Trump Must Nix HHS Mandate

Bill Donohue, CNS News

The majority of Catholics voted for Donald Trump, and many did so because he identified himself as pro-life and ran against a candidate who justified partial-birth abortion. He also said he would rescind the HHS mandate that makes Catholic non-profits complicit in providing for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception in their healthcare plans. Now his Justice Department is balking on this issue.

Carpetbaggers Come Back To Georgia

Georgia suffered once before when carpetbaggers invaded the Peach State, and it will suffer again, should carpetbagging Democrat Jon Ossoff and his liberal Hollywood friends gain the victory in today’s Congressional District 6 special election.

Political prosecution in California

Editors, Washington Examiner

Instead of serving the public, California's attorney general has made himself an errand-boy for an organization that performs roughly one-third of all abortions in America, and whose employees make jokes about the prices they can ask of laboratories for baby parts left over from abortions.

California Shamelessly Persecutes Pro-Life Journalists

David French, National Review

Big Abortion holds the Democratic party in a vise grip, and it now may use that power to send a man to prison for embarrassing the nation’s largest abortion provider. Two young journalists may pay a steep price for doing work that the Left admires — at least when reporters are protecting ducks and chickens. But babies in the womb? They only have the right to die.

Gorsuch v. Death, Inc.

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Gorsuch's belief that the both the Declaration and the 14th Amendment reflect the same understanding of human life that caused him to conclude that "the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong" cannot be reconciled with Roe's determination that the Constitution created a right to take a human life. Many innocent lives may now hinge on whether Justice Gorsuch acts on the court in keeping with this principle he championed as a private citizen.

Trump calls Planned Parenthood's bluff

Editors, Washington Examiner

Trump's offer (to keep funding if the group stopped doing abortions) reveals the value of having a businessman in the White House. The president negotiated to convince automakers to remain in the U.S., and Boeing to keep down the price of Air Force One. With his Planned Parenthood offer, Trump has exposed the dishonesty behind the group's emphasis on "women's health."

Dems' Suffragette Protest Falls Flat

Fact check: The Democrats' protest during President Trump's speech was not about standing in solidarity with all women but about defending a woman’s choice to end the life of her preborn child, defending pro-abortion efforts and taking a stand against our nation’s president.

Planned Parenthood's Pandering Press

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

As with virtually anyone on the left, journalists treat Planned Parenthood as the most sacred of cows. In the last few weeks, from the women's marches through the March for Life and other protests of Planned Parenthood, none of the networks will investigate or even cover the activities of these merchants of death.

Conservatives take a leap of faith on Gorsuch

Ryan Lovelace, Washington Examiner

Gorsuch looks poised to follow in the footsteps of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, a stalwart originalist whose vacant seat Gorsuch is looking to fill. But the potential for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judge to differ from Scalia on the Second Amendment and abortion has some conservatives acknowledging they are not sure where the high court nominee stands on those issues.

Abortion lobby isn't 'pro-choice,' wants to implicate everyone

Editors, Washington Examiner

The abortion lobby doesn't want to be left alone at all. It wants the opposite. Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, NARAL and their congressional allies all want to rope the rest of us into their dirty work. What offends them isn't anyone telling them what to do. What offends them is that any woman should have her hands clean of abortion.

Rep. Steve King Introduces Bill to Ban Aborting Babies With Heartbeats

Lauretta Brown, CNS News

The legislation, the Heartbeat Protection Act of 2017,  says that “any physician who knowingly performs an abortion and thereby kills a human fetus without determining, according to standard medical practice, whether the fetus has a detectable heartbeat; without informing the mother of the results of that determination; or after determining, according to standard medical practice, that the fetus has a detectable heartbeat, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”

Establishment Media Acting Like Planned Parenthood’s PR Network

As a recent NewsBusters study shows, so far in this news cycle, the major networks have skewed the coverage of the effort to defund Obamacare to make it look like the repeal effort is not about Obamacare’s failed business model and job killing taxes and regulations, it’s all about Planned Parenthood.

Pro-life groups expect quick action from Trump

Peter Sullivan, The Hill

Anti-abortion groups are hoping President-elect Donald Trump will start changing federal abortion policy on his first day in office. Those actions include removing ObamaCare's requirements for religious organizations to cover contraception in their insurance plans, easing the Obama administration rules that make it harder to cut funding from Planned Parenthood, and preventing foreign aid dollars from being used for abortions.

Ohio’s New Anti-Abortion Measure Could Challenge Roe v. Wade

John Stonestreet, CNS News

The timing here is what’s interesting. Assuming the bill becomes law, it will certainly be challenged in federal court, where, as Ohio Right to Life and Governor John Kasich rightly suspect, it will be struck down by a federal district court judge. Appeals take time, and by the time the case makes its way through the courts, a lot could have changed, including even a second opening on the Supreme Court.

FedUp PAC Launches Unprecedented Catholic Voter Outreach

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
This election is winnable.  It is close enough to be turned around overnight.  The key to shifting the Catholic vote in Trump’s favor is to reach individual Catholics, and Catholic women with specific information and facts the media has not reported.  And through FedUp PAC there is a way to do that.

Trump Voters: Send Them A Message Nationalize The Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Despite the abysmal failure of the GOP’s national leadership to fight the campaign on national issues, the election has been at least partly nationalized on a broader theme – a simple rejection of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s failed policies and their stated goal of fundamentally changing America.

It’s Time To Fight And Win The Election We Have

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this battle there is only the victory or defeat of constitutional liberty and the rule of law. In this battle there is no third option, there is no compromise, there is no sitting out the election. I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.
