It’s been a year and a half since President Trump made the decision to rescue the military from the transgender distractions of the Obama years. And in 30 days, he might actually get to see that order take effect.

Amazon isn't the only one fed up with New York's ridiculous tax rates. Plenty of companies are packing their bags and looking for office space in states with more business-friendly policies. There's just one problem: a lot of these top firms can't stand the conservative laws that make their new homes so successful.

The Senate may have already killed its Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection bill, but the issue is far from dead. In a new op-ed from Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Republicans make it clear: the fight over infanticide is just beginning.

It's getting old to say “we told you so,” but in the three and a half years since Obergefell, conservatives have been proven right in ways most of us wish we never were. Remember the days of “my same-sex marriage won't affect you”? Well, according to U.S. District Judge Gray Miller, it's affecting you – and every single daughter in America.

In a country that's already on edge over the issue of abortion, last week’s news about Louisiana's clinic law set off plenty of panic. Thanks to some misleading headlines, a lot of people were under the impression – wrongly – that the Supreme Court had struck down the state's policy on hospital admitting privileges. They didn't – but, as Chief Justice John Roberts made everyone quite aware, the law still has plenty of hurdles ahead.

President Trump reached past the political divide in Congress to unify Americans around an inspiring vision of what America can be. He took the policy issues that often polarize Washington and appealed to Americans with moving stories that showed the human side of policy decisions.

Parents used to worry about "peer pressure" encouraging their kids to experiment with alcohol or drugs, or to have sex. Now, they have to worry that it may encourage their kids (especially daughters) to change sex altogether.

Just 27 days ago, Nancy Pelosi claimed the Speaker's gavel and promised that her House would be "bipartisan and unifying." What have we seen since? House Democrats are pushing to open the floodgates of millions of taxpayer dollars to pay for elective abortions – even as Speaker Pelosi insists that she can't offer more than a dollar to build a border wall. And then yesterday, Democrats on the Natural Resources Committee announced they would remove "so help you God" from the oath that is administered to witnesses who testify before the committee. So under the new Democratic House majority, it's “yes” to taxpayer funding for abortion, “no” to a border wall, and “no” to God.

For 40 years, America has had one of the most extreme abortion laws on the planet. Babies in the womb -- boys and girls, unwanted by their families, rejected as members of the human family, have been deprived of their human rights and legal protection until the moment of birth, thanks to the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973. But rarely has there been the collective outrage we now see against the New York legislature and its governor, Andrew Cuomo.

It's hard enough to be the president under normal circumstances. But try doing it while others are constantly trying to usurp your constitutional authority. That's the position Donald Trump's been in for two whole years. Every time he acts, the courts react – at best, putting his policies on hold. At worst, refusing to consider them. Today, finally, one set of justices got it right – but the White House had to go all the way to the top to find them.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced today that it will allow the Trump administration's transgender military policy to go into effect while litigation continues.

It was supposed to be a day celebrating religious freedom in America. Instead, liberals decided to show everyone just how much our First Freedom is at risk. For Christians, who've tried to warn people that these last several years were about a lot more than marriage, the attacks on Second Lady Karen Pence certainly seem to prove their point. Three years after Obergefell, all of the lies about “love” and “tolerance” have been eclipsed by the court cases, articles, and editorial demonizing people of faith. What Americans see now is the truth: the left is coming for our freedom. And they have no intention of letting up.
