Thanks, SCOTUS, For the LGBTQ Madness
The Supreme Court's recent rulings on separate LGBTQ cases have set the course for years of legal wrangling -- and that means years of societal, educational, cultural and athletic confusion for the rest of us.

COVID-19 Shutdowns Are Needless
Let's stop with the COVID-19 madness, shall we? Let's stop the shutdowns; quit with the face masks. Dr. Marilyn Singleton -- yes, that's "Doctor" -- says the numbers being reported don't justify the political actions being taken. This "new normal" is a defeatist way of thinking.

Police Are Good!
With all the calls to defund, dismantle and destroy police departments, it's easy to lose sight of the fact: Police are good. As a force, they do much for the betterment of society. And nobody knows that better than Jaco Booyens, who works to educate about sex trafficking -- and his sister, Ilonka Deaton, who was sex trafficked. Both share their stories.

The U.S. State Department just released its 2020 "Trafficking in Persons Report" about the state of human slavery around the world. But nothing says "real" like hearing right from a victim.

Newt Gingrich on Trump, America and More
It's bad enough President Donald Trump has to fight Democrats for reelection -- but Republicans, too? The deep state globalists are alive and shrill. Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the House, has a new book about it and warns that a Joe Biden win means a Nancy Pelosi-Chuck Schumer rule. This election is the most important in American history, he says.

Democrats' Plan to Destroy Blacks

He's got a powerful, powerful message all of America needs to hear.

Isaiah 58 in America
It's an Isaiah 58 kind of world out there -- meaning, there are biblical truths to be applied to today's America.

Democrats' Despicable Drive to Compromise Voting
Democrats have been using the coronavirus in recent months to insist on widespread mail-in voting -- and there's a good reason for that: It's the way they win the White House. 'Cause it's rife with fraud. Hans von Spakovsky, an election expert with the Heritage Foundation, talks mail-in voting and Electoral College sense, and explains why the left is so bent on boosting the first; crippling the second.

A Serious Talk on Police Powers
Democrats want to defund police. Antifa thugs want to dismantle police departments. But somewhere in all this talk about radical federalization of community police departments are true ideas of reform that could actually help all Americans -- not just special interests, not just Black Lives Matter.

Black Lives Matter, a Mission of Mayhem
Black Lives Matter was founded in 2013, and has since gone global. And if you think this social justice warring group is going away any time soon -- think again.

So says Rebecca Friedrichs, a California public school teacher with amazing insights on where this violence in the streets is rooted.

George Floyd Is Being Used as Puppet For Left
Members of the media would have it believed that America is unjust, the Constitution racist and police awaken each morning with visions of gleefully killing black men in their communities. It's all lies. As hero military veteran and former law enforcement official Mark Geist says, America has problems -- and Floyd was horrifically killed. But America's problems, he explains, are rooted largely in the national turn from God and individual accountability.

Resisting Government in These COVID-19 Times

The Big Chill of Contact Tracing
Contact tracing — what is it? The government says it’s nothing to worry about, nothing to fear. That’s a lie. Contact tracing, with technology, is one big government spy program — and it’s coming to a community near you. There are privacy problems. There are constitutional issues. And as technology security expert Quentin Rhoads-Herrera warns: there are questions about the potential for hackers and thieves to steal the data for nefarious uses.

COVID-19 War on Churches
America's churches are in a war -- against America's own government. And it's all due to COVID-19. Think that's hyperbole? Think again. And while thinking, take a listen to two church leaders -- Pastor Timothy White in Washington state and Pastor Veron House in New York -- talk about the crackdowns they've personally faced. And here's an eye-opening clue of the seriousness of the situation: Police were actually involved. Did you ever think this could happen in America, a country founded on religious liberty?

COVID-19, America and the Stink of Socialism
So here we are in America, amid COVID-19 government crackdowns -- and for one asylum seeker who fled Venezuela for the free society of the United States, it's almost like a post-traumatic stress disorder moment with all the trampling of civil rights.

Freedom Ain't Free. Charlie Kirk's Words of Optimism

Fame or Family? Rocker Richie Furay Tells His God Moment
Fame -- what would you do for it? It's an interesting question, particularly since America's economic and social systems drive the quest for fame from a young age. It's rare to get it, though; even rarer to give it up -- for family and God. But 1960s Hall of Fame rocker Richie Furay did. And he is here to tell his most interesting, most extraordinary tale of turning secular rocker -- to pastor and family man.

Government Gone Wild
It's not just COVID-19 that is bringing about a government that's gone wild with the dictatorial style of leadership -- though the coronavirus is leading to some serious constitutional dings. But in Texas, the Supreme Court has a case of eye-opening proportions that's seeing a fit and proper biological dad having to fight for custody of his little girl -- because another guy who used to live with the girl feels like he's a dad. It's Real Dad vs Fake Dad, and Jeremy Newman with the Texas Home School Coalition has the shocking story.

Religious Liberties in Coronavirus Freefall
America was founded in large part on religious liberty. And as Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel and vice president of litigation David Cortman says, without religious liberties, all others fall. Well, take a look around at modern America and see: We're in a crisis mode for freedom. When a pastor is arrested for preaching the Word and worshippers are fined $500 for listening to the Word -- we're in a crisis. David Cortman gives some hope: ADF to the litigation rescue.

Fighting Coronavirus the George Washington Way
It's Easter -- and in America, churches are closed. What a sad situation for a nation built on Judeo-Christian principles, built by founders like George Washington who turned in times of trouble to prayer. William Jeynes, a California professor and a Harvard graduate and a co-creator of some religious liberties' guidelines signed by President Donald Trump in January, has an Easter season idea to tackle coronavirus, Christian warrior way -- and while it's not exactly what the doctor ordered, it is nevertheless exactly what our nation's first president would've done, as well. Listen in and learn!

A Perfect Coronavirus Socialist Storm
If you think America, land of the free, will return to the same America, land of the free, once coronavirus passes -- think again.

Coronavirus Blues? Sam and Kevin Sorbo to the Rescue

Saving Civil Liberties in a Coronavirus Time
It's in times of great peril -- like coronavirus -- that patriotic Americans must band together to ward off government attacks on constitutional rights that come in the name of national safety or security. That's what makes Lisa Nelson, CEO of the American Legislative Exchange Council, such a great guest. ALEC is all about the states' rights. And Lisa has some crucial words of policy wisdom for how states can keep up the free market march while fighting coronavirus -- even as feds try to encroach more on the 10th Amendment.

Trafficked in North Carolina
It's bad enough Mexican cartels are bringing their drugs into America, devastating communities near you. But did you know cartel-tied human trafficking -- sex trafficking -- the enslavement of suffering little girls and boys -- takes place right in Anytown, USA?

ERA -- it's back!
In case you've missed it -- the equal rights amendment for women is making a resurgence of late, on the wings of all the hopeful feminist women in politics who want to see abortion and LGBTQ madness as constitutional rights. Eagle Forum's Anne Schlafly Cori has some warnings about what this measure would bring America. Can you say chaos, chaos and more chaos?

Sex Trafficking in Your Backyard

In America's own neighborhoods. In America's own San Diego, for instance. And San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, who's seen first hand the destruction traffickers bring, has some tough words, along with some good ideas, to wake people to the cold, harsh truths of U.S. trafficking.

Why do Jews vote Democrat?
Democrats, particularly recently, have been fighting off perceptions -- accusations -- accusations based on factual coverage of their own statements and actions -- of anti-Semitism. Yet Jews, as a group, tend to vote Democrat. It's not just odd. It's self-destructive. So why do they? Rabbi Aryeh Spero, dubbed "America's rabbi," offers some thoughts -- including one idea he's not previously mentioned in public. Have to listen to learn what it is!

How to Save America
If you want to save America -- really, truly save America -- it's going to take more than voting Republican this November. It's going to take a widespread, national return to Judeo-Christian values. And to start, Dr. Michael Youssef, internationally-known pastor and founder of Leading The Way ministries, has written a book that lays out well the road that must be traveled: "Saving Christianity." Pure and simple, saving America starts with saving Christianity.

Democrats Are Pretty Dang Racist
Democrats say they're all about tolerance and equality and diversity, but that's all smoke and mirrors. Fact is, Democrats are pretty racist -- and you can see that in how they bend over backwards, every campaign season, to drum up black votes. It's ridiculous. It's offensive. It's ineffective. And Black Voices for Trump coalition member and Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli has a lot to say about it. Tune in for a special Super Tuesday podcast with one of politics' best pundits.

Bernie Sanders, Resident Deceiver
Bernie Sanders has been able to get away with quite a few deceptions on his trail to the White House -- heck, during his entire political career, for that matter. Adam Guillette, president of Accuracy in Media, explains how members of the press are complicit in advancing these deceptions, and gives some hints on what voters should watch for in the coming months.

Cal Thomas, On the Faith
The media doesn't have a very good reputation with the American people -- and part of that distrust comes from the polling fact that members of the press are simply out of touch, out of faith. Nobody knows this better than Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist and author, who speaks about his experiences as a Christian in the secular media world -- and about his great new book on the fate of America.

Why 12 Years?
On the first year of Christmas, my true love gave to me -- a can of hair spray that deleted the ozone. Democrats love to predict death and doom and devastation for the world in the next 12 years. But their science is far from sound, or settled. Here to help make sense of the insanity is environmental expert and "Inconvenient Truths" author Gregory Wrightstone, who provides what the left hates: Facts.

Brexit and America: Two Peas in the Freedom Pod
So what's Brexit got to do with America? Only everything -- only everything tied to principles of freedom, sovereignty, nationalism and yes, rugged individualism.

George Soros, socialism and America's schools
Three things that should never be equated in the same sentence: George Soros. Socialism. And America's public school systems. Yet there is a relationship. Rebecca Friedrichs, an author who spent three decades as a teacher fighting the unions from inside the system, speaks of the outright Marxism that's marching into America's schools.

The Schools Are No Place For Children
Socialists in the schools. Teachers in the Democratic Socialists of America. Administrators who care more about LGBTQ agendas than educating on math, science and English. Your children are in danger -- and few know this more than actress, model, author, wife and mom Sam Sorbo, who pulled her kids from public schools and homeschooled them. She's got some dire warnings for parents -- and some sound advice. This is an interview you can't afford to miss.

America, the 'God-Given' Great
America was founded on the principle that rights come from God, not government. This is the core of American exceptionalism -- the root from which all individual freedoms spring. And nobody explains that better than Rep. Jody Hice, who says, in this interview, "the "more we kick God out," the "more intrusive" government becomes.

Second Amendment in Peril in Virginia
Liberals say they only want common-sense gun control, not to kill the Second Amendment. But they don't. They want control and power. If they truly wanted common-sense gun control, they'd start by bringing moral teachings based on godly principles back into the public school systems, so that today's youth would have a firm grasp on what constitutes right versus wrong. Look at what's going on with Virginia with looming gun controls -- and beware. The NRA's Chris Kopacki sheds some light on the fight to maintain one of America's core rights -- self-defense -- in a state that has gone Democrat, and now, full-steam-ahead with gun control.

Democrats, Party of the Soulless
The question on the table is: Do the Democrats have souls? That's not a joke; that's a serious consideration at a time when the leftists on Capitol Hill and around the nation are busily having fun with impeachment. The costs to the republic are clear. But at what costs to the taxpayers? Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at Heritage Foundation, helps break down the financial costs of this whole impeachment charade. Here's a clue: It's so high, even he can't come up with an exact figure.

Christians and Politics and Persecution, Oh My
On the heels of a Christianity Today editorial that condemned President Donald Trump and called for his speedy impeachment, those of the faith in America are up in arms about what constitutes Christianity -- whether it's "Christian" to support Trump or not. Of course it is; using the Bible to teach that Trump is worthy of impeachment is ridiculous. But here's a positive spin: At least Christianity is in the news. And that's good for getting the word out about horrific Christian persecution around the world. Guest filmmaker Jordan Allott, producer of "Christians in the Mirror," talks about this.
