How Democrats routed conservative candidates and turned Virginia blue

How Democrats routed conservative candidates and turned Virginia blue

November 12, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Exultant over the November 5, 2019 Democrat takeover of both houses of Virginia’s General Assembly, Governor Ralph Northam used his official web page to proclaim: 

Tonight ... voters ... elected landmark Democratic majorities in both the Senate and the House of Delegates[.] ... Virginians ... want us to defend the rights of women, LGBTQ[.] ... [T]hey want ... gun safety legislation, so no one has to fear being hurt or killed while at school, at work, or at their place of worship.

Not wanting to waste any time, Democrat state delegate Alfonso Lopez said earlier this year at a town Hall: “If we have the majority, the work of a lifetime is the work of two afternoons. Read More

Democratic Boosterism For Transgenders, Abortion Occupies Last Week Of Virginia Elections

Democratic Boosterism For Transgenders, Abortion Occupies Last Week Of Virginia Elections

The voters are sending a message.  Antifa, abortion, and transgenderism is no substitute for transportation, education and economy.  Republican priorities have served the latter; will Democrats continue to remain enslaved to the former

News from the Washington Examiner as Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) comes to northern Virginia to stump for Delegate Kathy Tran, whose support for abortion up to birth was made famous with a story originally reported by TRSFrom the Washington Examiner:

“She has endured, she has persevered, and, all the while, with courage, she has been one of the strongest leaders that we have,” Harris said of the freshman lawmaker who two years ago flipped her seat blue.

“She is somebody who never puts up her finger and says, ‘Oh, is this going to be popular or not’ You know that. You know she’s taken on huge fights, in particular for the women of Virginia and the families that love them, saying it’s not about what’s popular at the moment. It’s about what’s right. And these are the kinds of leaders we need in our statehouses,” she added.

“I don’t think we have a limit” being the answer as to how late an abortion could be performed, Tran now famously argued that abortion up-to-birth would be entirely permissible — “My bill would allow that” being her answer.

Meanwhile, concerns are being raised about including transgenders in high school sports as young men continue to dominate in women’s sports and break long-standing female records. Read More


Al-Baghdadi and Trump’s Syrian Chessboard

Al-Baghdadi and Trump’s Syrian Chessboard

Last night was a great night for the United States and for the World. A brutal killer, one who has caused so much hardship and death, was violently eliminated – he will never again harm another innocent man, woman or child. He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place. God bless the United States of America!

US President Donald Trump’s many critics insist he has no idea what he is doing in Syria. The assassination of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi over last weekend by US Special Forces showed this criticism is misplaced. Trump has a very good idea of what he is doing in Syria, not only regarding ISIS, but regarding the diverse competing actors on the ground.

Regarding ISIS, the obvious lesson of the Baghdadi raid is that Trump’s critics’ claim that his withdrawal of US forces from Syria’s border with Turkey meant that he was going to allow ISIS to regenerate was utterly baseless. Read More


Impeachment Is A Farce, And Nancy Knows It

Impeachment Is A Farce, And Nancy Knows It

The Democrats will soldier on, riding like Tennyson’s six hundred into the Valley of Death. But you can stick a fork in impeachment. It’s done.

By Bryan Fischer

Nancy Pelosi was an outspoken opponent of impeaching Donald Trump from day one. She knew it would represent a catastrophic misjudgment on the part of her fellow Democrats, would do nothing but energize Trump’s base, and make defeating him in 2020 an impossibility.

But she finally got stampeded into going along with this insanity. She and perhaps Steny Hoyer are the only Democrats who see that this whole thing is liable to go over a cliff dragging the entire Democrat Party behind them.

Nancy put Adam Schiff in charge of this charade for one reason. She needs a scapegoat for when this all implodes, and the pompous and unlikeable Schiff is it. Like any good explosives expert, she wants to be as far away from the device as possible when it goes off, and she wants somebody else to take the blame for it. Poor Adam Schiff doesn’t realize he has been led into a booby trap, and Nancy is not going to be there for him when the thing blows up. Read More


A State of War

A State of War

The following is an excerpt covering the writing of John Locke from my forthcoming book, The Light & the Rod. It uses writings of Machiavelli, Hobbes, Spinoza, Locke, and Rousseau to demonstrate the outcome of trying to reconcile Judeo-Christian ideas with pagan ones, particularly allowing government to put its hands on education. But this too is nothing new. We can trace this idea back to the period just before the Renaissance and Enlightenment. Pagan philosophy was only preparatory for Christian ideas; it is not consistent with them. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Read More

Progressive PAC Clean Virginia’s True Motives Finally Confirmed

The Republican Standard

A recent article in the Roanoke Times has confirmed what we have known all along: the organization Clean Virginia is a complete and utter fraud.

Those who have been paying attention have noted that the organization had more than just appearances to suggest that it was a dark money front group for billionaire Michael Bills and his wife Sonjia Smith who together have given over $2 million to Democratic candidates in Virginia. Read More


Our Most Important Right

Our Most Important Right

Last year I wrote about the natural rights we possess, where they came from, and why we have them.[1] But over the last several weeks, as I lay in a hospital, I had lots of time to think—and of course watch movies. There wasn’t much else I could do. What I noticed made me realize I’d missed an important point about our natural rights. This article addresses that omission. Read More
