In this interview I had on Fox Nation, I cover many topics including how black Americans are starting to shift away from progressive candidates. Instead, they shift to conservative candidates because it’s our values that Americans in inner-cities truly support. I was joined with Jason Riley and former governor of Maryland, Robert Elrich. When you watch this interview, you’ll hear us tackle many issues including …

President Donald Trump-haters salivated over special counsel Robert Mueller’s recent filings on ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and Trump former lawyer/”fixer” Michael Cohen. In both cases, Mueller recommends lengthy sentences, having accused them of committing crimes, including, in the case of Cohen, that Trump directed him to violate campaign finance laws in paying off porn …

There was a point in my life where I became that guy that I hope my daughter never dates. I wasn’t always that guy. Nor did I ever intend to be. The truth is men aren’t born to be dogs. They’re taught to be dogs. The good news for women is, you’re a significant part …

As France is gripped by civil disorder, many commentators identify, quite correctly, as the culprit the outsized burden that France’s bloated welfare state places on its citizens. According a recent report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the highest tax burden in the industrialized world is in France — 46.1 percent of GDP. …

How appropriate would it be for a major publicly held American company to hire a person with a history of having publicly made the following statements and many others like them? (In the interest of brevity, I shall list only four.) “The world could get by just fine with zero black people.” “It’s kind of …

George H.W. Bush was America’s closer. Called in to pitch the final innings of the Cold War, Bush 41 presided masterfully over the fall of the Berlin Wall, the unification of Germany, the liberation of 100 million Eastern Europeans and the dissolution of the Soviet Union into 15 independent nations. History’s assignment complete, Bush 41 …

Two days before an event on campus last month, the University of Pittsburgh charged the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), a conservative group, and the school’s College Republicans, a $5,546.52 security fee in case other students rioted over “controversial” speaker Ben Shapiro’s appearance. Rather than controlling rioters, who seek to shut down speech they oppose, the …

Surely murder is a serious subject, which ought to be examined seriously. Instead, it is almost always examined politically in the context of gun control controversies, with stock arguments on both sides that have remained the same for decades. And most of those arguments are irrelevant to the central question: Do tighter gun control laws reduce the murder rate?

That is not an esoteric question, nor one for which no empirical evidence is available. Think about it. We have 50 states, each with its own gun control laws, and many of those laws have gotten either tighter or looser over the years. There must be tons of data that could indicate whether murder rates went up or down when either of these things happened.

But have you ever heard any...

Black women constitute 6 percent of our population, yet they account for 35 percent of abortions. How can Democrats possibly be serving this community by supporting and encouraging this disaster?

This year, as every year, I will be joining the hundreds of thousands who will be arriving in Washington, D.C., for the March for Life. March for Life notes the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, Jan. 22, 1973, which legalized abortion on demand in our country.
The event has taken place every year since 1973 and will continue to take place every year until this disastrous and destructive decision is reversed.
Those who come to Washington express the breadth and depth of the resolve they hold for enshrining respect for the sanctity of life as part of our national culture.
They often brave the hostile elements of winter in our nation's capital. And have also braved many different political climates.
Fortunately, this year, the pro-life political climate has dramatically improved.
Operation Rescue, one the nation's leading activist pro-life Christian organizations, has named President Donald Trump its Pro-Life Person of the Year.
Last October, the House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This legislation prohibits abortion after 20 weeks, the point at which it's estimated that the unborn child can feel pain.
Trump has indicated that he is ready to sign the bill into law. In order for this to happen, it must pass the Senate. However, there is considerable doubt that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can muster the necessary 60 votes, particularly now that the Republican count in the Senate is down to 51.
Nevertheless, the push should be made in the Senate, and there are indications that the vote will take place.
Today's political landscape is characterized by increased partisan polarization, and abortion is no exception.
According to a 2017 Gallup poll, 71 percent of Democrats self-identify as "pro-choice" compared with 36 percent of Republicans — a difference of 35 percentage points. Sixteen years ago, in 2001, the gap between Democrats and Republicans on this issue was 26 points. The 71 percent "pro-choice" figure among Democrats in 2017 was the highest it's been in the last 17 years.
The nation's highest abortion rates are among black and Hispanics, both of whom vote disproportionately for Democrats. So, as in other areas, these minority communities are not getting the leadership they need in the Democratic politicians they vote for.
It's why Republicans should push for floor votes on abortion. It provides an opportunity to push Democrats and raise awareness among their constituents about this issue.
Black women constitute 6 percent of our population, yet they account for 35 percent of abortions. How can Democrats possibly be serving this community by supporting and encouraging this disaster?
It's vital for blacks, and for all Americans, to understand that abortion is not an issue that can be viewed in isolation. Lack of respect for the sanctity of life spills over into other critical areas of human behavior.
Thus it is no accident that the years since the Roe v. Wade decision have been years in which the American family has collapsed.
In 1960, 73 percent of all children were living with two parents in a first marriage. By 2014, this was down to 46 percent.
In 2014, 54 percent of black children were living with a single parent. Seventy-one percent of black babies were born to unwed mothers in 2014 compared with 40 percent in 1960.
Research is overwhelming regarding the centrality of a healthy family structure to success in life. There is little question that the deep issues in black communities today tie to family collapse.
And at the core of that collapse is the absence of reverence for the sanctity of life.
There is no issue more central to our national moral, physical and fiscal health than abortion. And the partisan implications are clear.
Republicans must help lead blacks and Hispanics out of the darkness in which the Democratic Party is holding them hostage.

What is feminism? If you asked people on the street, the most common response is “equality.” Yet at the darkened heart of today’s faux feminism, there is no equality because it is violently hostile to Life. You can dress it up in all the pink banners, euphemisms, and #ShoutYourAbortion tweetfests that you’d like, but the truth can’t be hashtagged over. Without Life, there is no equality.

How many times must we go around this human value merry-go-round? You can’t diminish and destroy any part of the human family and expect humanity to rise. Fannie Lou Hamer understood this. It was why she was so “sick and tired of being sick and tired.” She fought against a society that claimed “land of...
