Angsty Progressive Employee

Kerby Anderson Several progressive organizations have become paralyzed due to the woke activists within their organizations. Jim Geraghty writes about this and provides lengthy quotes from leaders of these organizations who have been crippled from pursuing their mission because of in-fighting within their organizations. One leader documents the inability of pro-abortion organizations like “Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America” to be effective because they have “been locked in knock-down, drag-out fights between competing factions of their organizations, most often breaking…

Maine family fights - religious freedom

Kerby Anderson The Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of religious schools. The decision in Carson v. Makin written by the Chief Justice made it clear that religious parents should have the same freedom as non-religious parents. The state of Maine provided funding for parents but restricted parents from using it for religious schools. Two earlier precedents provided the foundation for the decision. In Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer, the court ruled that the state could not refuse a grant…

The Western Bumblebee, Bombus occidentalis

Kerby Anderson One of the questions that seem to stump otherwise intelligent people is the question, “What is a woman?” Another apparently difficult question surfaced in California. That is the question, “What is a bumblebee?” A California court ruled that bumblebees are fish and can be protected by the California Endangered Species Act. This is merely a linguistic trick to expand the government’s reach, but there is growing evidence that several of the many woke ideas being applied to humans…

awake protesters outside of WDW

Kerby Anderson Abigail Shrier has written an essay “In Defense of Political Escalation.” You may remember that she is the author of the book, Irreversible Damage, which documents the sudden rise in young people, especially teenage girls wanting to transition. Even if you don’t accept her conclusion, her essay is worth reading because she documents so many cases of censorship that are rarely even covered by the media. Ryan Anderson and his co-author lost their ability to offer pre-orders of…

Sen Chris Murphy D-CN & Sen Alex Padilla D-CA)

Kerby Anderson A bipartisan group of US senators have been discussing and debating gun control legislation. Democratic members of Congress and former members are heralding it as a legislative milestone. Senator Schumer is “pleased that, for the first time in nearly 30 years, Congress is on the path to take meaningful action to address gun violence.” Senator Murphy hailed the breakthrough agreement as “the first in 30 years.” Gabby Giffords says the measure will “be the first time in 30…

Penna Dexter The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has issued a report warning of a “high risk of energy emergencies during peak summer conditions” across much of the country. NERC estimates that two-thirds of the U.S. could experience blackouts this summer. Progressives want to limit our dependence on fossil fuels. They are shutting down coal plants without enough full-time power to avoid frequent and prolonged grid failure. According to a recent Wall Street Journal editorial, “Solar and wind are rapidly…

What is a Woman? Matt Walsh - banner

Kerby Anderson Ben Shapiro asks an important question: Is Ignoring the Other Side a Winning Strategy for the Left? He asked that question because his company released the documentary by Matt Walsh, “What is a Woman?” The film investigates radical gender theory and its influence in society. He noted that (at least at the time of the article) no one in the entertainment media had reviewed the film. Rotten Tomatoes had lots of viewer reviews and comments, but not a…

Twitter Logo - User Silhouettes

Kerby Anderson Charles Cooke argues that “Progressives Have a Twitter Problem.” Of course, you could also say that liberals and conservatives focus too much on Twitter. But what he is talking about is the Twitter echo chamber, which reinforces liberal ideas that bear little relation to reality. Progressive ideas and policy proposals are promoted and reinforced within the Twitter-sphere. Tweets are retweeted and repeatedly liked by a mob of sycophants. Soon an idea that might not even be given serious…

Promote Life Pro-Life march

Kerby Anderson Several commentators point to an obvious contradiction. On the one hand, progressive activists mourn the loss of “our most vulnerable” who are killed in a store or school. Yet with the next breath promote state laws that will increase the killing of the unborn, who are truly the most vulnerable in society. Much of this contradiction is tied up with a misunderstanding of rights. Rights are rooted in natural law and cannot merely be your subjective feelings. The…

Pastor Praying

Kerby Anderson Most Christians do not have a biblical worldview. That has been well documented in numerous studies. This is puzzling since a significant percentage of Christians without a biblical worldview regularly attend church services. A recent study by George Barna may have an answer. Put simply, church members don’t have a biblical worldview because the pastor does not have a biblical worldview. Less than a third (31%) of pastors in America have a biblical worldview. That is a shocking…

Gang shooting-Sacramento

Kerby Anderson The country is currently focused on gun violence because of the recent mass shootings in stores and schools. But Rich Lowry reminds us that, “the same leftists who rightfully lament mass shootings avert their eyes from the much more common scourge of deadly gang violence.” Some recent headlines seem intended to deceive. One headline howled that “at least 54 injured, 11 killed in 7 separate mass shootings this weekend.” Such headlines leave the reader with the impression that…
