Abortion Victims: Human Commodities in Texas


Just over a year ago the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) began to release a series of undercover videos chronicling Planned Parenthood’s alarming practice of selling body parts of aborted victims– livers, kidneys, eyeballs, brains, and more – for research. Not only are members of the public shocked by what we saw, so are pro-life state political leaders. They have begun to respond, and this article gives a summary of what has been done and what we can expect.

My Educational Adventure into the School Choice Debate

Sometime in April, I was contacted by Josh Kaib from the Franklin Center.  I have to commend Josh in his persistence in trying to reach me. When we finally connected, I was thankful and honored that he offered me an all-expense paid scholarship to attend an Amplify School Choice Conference in Denver, Colorado from August 10 –12, and for the opportunity to learn more about school choice.  There were over 50 activists from all over

A Post-Trump Path on Immigration


More than any other issue, Donald Trump’s stance on immigration will have the biggest impact on post-2016 national politics. His opposition to immigration is his signature and most consistent opinion during the entire campaign. Trump’s rise was fueled by nativism — from his early statements on Mexican rapists to his first position paper to his current campaign.

With Trump Poll Numbers In Decline, Are Down Ballot Races In Texas In Danger?


Maybe to be forearmed, you need to be forewarned. Trump's decline in the last two weeks, if not reversed, could impact other GOP races.

Our concern here is over turnout. If it looks like the race is over and Trump will lose, it could discourage base voters or that traditional GOP voters are switching sides for President and then not bothering to vote down ballot. Either is a big potential problem.
