If there is one thing you can count on, it’s the ever shifting 24/7 news cycle. Mostly, and appropriately, perhaps, the news cycle over the weekend focused on the combined American, British, and French airstrikes against the Syrian chemical weapon production capability. However, there was a more important story from last week that we should not so easily dismiss. It centers around the Senate and House congressional testimony of Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. If we were paying attention to the very well scripted and rehearsed testimony of Mr. Zuckerberg, we would realize that he all but concurred with the assessment that Facebook does censor certain speech.

Matt Bevin signed it into law... . This restriction,” she says, "is part of a national strategy to push abortion out of reach.” You bet it is!

Things sure are getting better now that science has all the answers. At least that’s what one Harvard professor thinks.
It was widely reported earlier this month that London experienced a higher number of murders over the first three months of 2018 than did New York City—the first time in modern history that has occurred.
Concerning Paul Ryan's decision to leave Congress, I am more troubled by its implications for entitlement reform than the impact it may have on the GOP agenda or the November elections.
Conservatives are used to the national media excluding our viewpoint or loading up a pundit panel with eight liberals and one marginal Republican.
