Lawn Care, Dry Cleaning and 7 Other Things More Money is Spent on Than Politics
The Left, licking its wounds from its stunning defeat nationally last week at the polls, has gone back to incessantly complaining about the amount of money in politics.
It is estimated that $3.7 billion dollars was spent this election cycle. To the Left, this is a horrible, terrible, no good, dirty, astroturfing.
But the irony of all the decrying from the Left is just how little, comparatively, we spend on politics.
Elections Have Consequences So Don’t Bury Your Vote
On a near daily basis as an attorney for the ACLJ, I hear callers into our daily radio program, Jay Sekulow Live!, rightfully upset about the most recent appalling Executive overreach by the President or devastating vote in the Senate or House of Representatives.
The question always comes up: “Isn’t there something we can do to stop this outrage?”
Our Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow’s answer is always the same. “Elections have consequences.”
And we’re the ones to blame for those consequences.
Fairfax County Shelves Proposal to Violate Right of Assembly in One’s Home
Today, in a victory for the Constitution and common sense, a proposal to limit the number of people you are allowed to have in the privacy of your own home was shelved by Fairfax County officials.
The blatantly unconstitutional proposal would have violated the right of assembly and threatened to shut down home Bible studies in Fairfax County.
Pro-Abortion McAuliffe Bullies State Health Reps. to Resign, Takes Aim at Clinic Safety Standards
Pro-abortion Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has successfully bullied at least four members of the state board of health to resign in order to appoint radical pro-abortion replacements.
Virginians Assemble to Defend Bible Studies and the Right to Assemble in Private Homes
Earlier this week I told you about a proposed ordinance to limit the right to assemble in the privacy of one’s own home. It could have a chilling effect on home Bible studies and is a grave and fundamental violation of the Constitution.
Last night I spoke at a community meeting of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in opposition to the proposed regulation, explaining how it would not only violate the Constitution and Virginia law but smacks of the worst kind of government overreach.
Fairfax County Poised to Shut Down Home Bible Studies?
I never imagined when I agreed to host a Bible study in my home that such an action may one day be a violation of law.
Yet that’s exactly what my very own Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is prepared to do right here in Virginia.
Planned Parenthood, NARAL, HuffPost Misconstrue Senator Martin’s Comments to Make a Point They Don’t Even Agree With
The Huffington Post, NARAL, and Planned Parenthood have gone on the offensive against a pro-life politician, excoriating him for referring to pregnant women as a “host”.
Yet, this is nothing more than another example of the ever prevalent abortion distortion.
Religious Freedom: A Virginia Tradition Like No Other
It was on this day in 1786 that the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom was enacted. It was this Virginia statute, authored by Thomas Jefferson, that became the basis of our First Amendment religious freedom protections (a fact that I and every other Virginian you will meet are very proud of).
But are we, as a nation in general and this Administration specifically, really protecting religious liberty?
Terry McAuliffe Stands with Late-Term Abortion
Terry Mcauliffe is bringing his radical pro-abortion agenda to a whole new level.
McAuliffe is joining forces with the standard-bearer for late-term abortion (i.e. the killing of a viable baby), Wendy Davis, literally fundraising off the brutal destruction of human life and endangering women.
Pro-Abortion NARAL is Ready for Political Retribution over Pro-Life Laws that Work
Pro-Life laws work, and NARAL has endorsed the “100%” pro-abortion triumvirate of Terry McAuliffe, Ralph Northam, and Mark Herring because they are willing to take up NARAL’s cause to fight any “regulations on abortion providers.”
