U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), a leading advocate for school choice in the United States Senate, on January 7th filed a resolution supporting National School Choice Week. Senator Scott, a member of the Senate Education Committee, will also introduce his Creating Hope and Opportunity for Individuals and Communities through Education (CHOICE) Act later this month and host a significant event supporting school choice in early February (details to be released in the coming weeks).
The far left New York Times editors must really, really like Jeb Bush, who is running for president in 2016 – although he won’t openly admit it. When the NYT endorses you or writes a flattering feature about you, there must be something really, really wrong about your conservative beliefs and stands. The NYT recently ran a slobbering feature about Bush and about his ability to “learn” and to “change” his stands on bedrock issues like marriage as a union of one man and one woman.
Newly-elected Congresswoman Mia Love (R-UT) appeared on “Greta” last night to discuss her first vote in Congress — and her decision to join the leftist Congressional Black Caucus. She’ll be following in the tradition of Lt. Col. Allen West when he was a congressman from Florida — and a GING-PAC endorsed lawmaker.
“More than 18,000 ‘very late term’ abortions are performed every year on perfectly healthy unborn babies in America. These are innocent and defenseless children who can not only feel pain, but who can survive outside of the womb in most cases, and who are torturously killed without even basic anesthesia. Many of them cry and scream as they die, but because it is amniotic fluid going over their vocal cords instead of air, we don’t hear them.”
At least 12 are dead and many more wounded at the office of Charlie Hebdo, a magazine that satirizes Islam and other targets. The office was invaded by at least three terrorists wearing black masks and carrying AK-47s. They burst into the office shouting “We avenged the honor of the prophet,” and “Allahu Akbar” before fleeing from the scene in a stolen car.
The Pew Research Center released a study recently showing that nine out of 10 new members of Congress are Christians. Of those, 57% are Protestant, 31% are Catholic, and 5% are Jewish.

Mike Huckabee, former presidential candidate and former governor of Arkansas, announced that he is leaving Fox News to consider another run for the presidency in 2016. Huckabee and GING-PAC Chairman William J. Murray are close friends and the prospect of his running in 2016 is encouraging news. He is a committed Christian, a vocal social conservative and a strong defender of the Constitution and the rule of law.
U.S. Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04), a vocal critic of President Obama’s decision to embrace the Castro regime after decades of human rights abuses, including the harboring of fugitives, appeared on Fox News Channel recently and reiterated his call to Cuba to extradite Joanne Chesimard, the convicted murderer of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster.
The worst is yet to come. Before the midterms, panicked and politically driven Obama bureaucrats delayed premium payment deadlines, high-risk insurance pool cancellations and onerous “meaningful use” mandates on health providers grappling with Obamacare’s disastrous top-down electronic medical records rules. Those chickens will come home to roost in 2015.
Despite a 5-year-old congressional ban on federal funding for the notably corrupt Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Judicial Watch has obtained documents that show a chunk of taxpayer money went to an affiliate serving as an Obamacare “navigator.”
