Silenced No More May 3, 2019 A Real Free Speech Movement  President Trump has never bowed down to political correctness. In fact, it was one of the reasons why he won the Presidency. In that same spirit, he recently issued an executive order to force higher education institutions to comply with the Constitutional right to free speech. The order explained, “Free inquiry is an essential feature of our Nation’s democracy, and it promotes learning, scientific discovery, and economic prosperity.” It goes on ... Read more

Close the Visa and Lottery Loopholes April 26, 2019 The President and Congress Act on Visa Issues While President Trump is moving forward with building a wall at the U.S./Mexico border, he is cracking down on other illegal immigration loopholes. This week, the President signed a memo that gives Homeland Security and the Department of State 120 days to propose a solution to illegal immigrants who overstay their visas. During 2018, a whopping 415,000 individuals stayed in the United States after their visa ... Read more

The High Cost of Free April 22, 2019 Socialism, or Democratic Socialism, is portrayed as a system that helps those in need most and gives everyone a fair chance at success. This ideal system would redistribute the wealth of the 1% to provide a basic income, free healthcare, free college tuition, and free child care, just to name a few. These talking points tend to hit home with almost every American who spends a large chunk of the paycheck on everyday ... Read more

Victory — Because You Took Action! April 19, 2019 No New Taxes President Trump has proved to be a man of his promise. We have seen him come through on campaign issues on which he ran like immigration and life. This year, he may add another issue to his repertoire: infrastructure.

Senate Republicans Defend Life April 12, 2019 The Senate Judiciary held a hearing this week on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 160) further highlighting our need to continue encouraging our Senators to uphold the sanctity of our most vulnerable, the unborn. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act bans abortion after 20 weeks gestational age due to overwhelming scientific evidence that babies at this age can feel pain. The U.S. is only one of seven countries where it is legal ... Read more

Ask your Congressman for another Victory for Life April 5, 2019 Last year, the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) reviewed their Title X rules and tightened up their grant rules to comply with federal law. They determined that Title X recipients could not reside with abortion facilities. Federal law bans any federal money from funding abortions, so separating the two clarifies where the money is actually going. In addition, HHS highlighted a federal law requiring Title X recipients to report abuse incidents, encourages ... Read more

Equal Pay Erases Choice March 22, 2019 An Unfair Paycheck Act House Democrats are pushing forward yet another oppressive measure disguised under the label of “equality”. The Paycheck Fairness Act (H.R. 7) is messaged as a bill that outlaws sex-based wage discrimination. The Left makes this sound like a good effort, but in reality, unequal pay on the basis of sex is illegal now. Sex discrimination in the workplace is already prohibited by law through Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights ... Read more

The White House Budget March 16, 2019 The President’s $4.7 trillion budget was released early this week. While Congress has usually ignored past White House budgets, and Democrats have already labeled it a “non-starter”, it gives us an indication as to what the President plans to focus on in the upcoming year. In a nutshell, the President proposes to increase military spending while cutting $2.7 trillion of non-defense spending over ten years. He also leaves the spending caps in place as ... Read more

The New Free Speech Movement March 9, 2019 At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last weekend, President Trump made a promise to protect free speech on college campuses across the country.

Infants Not Infanticide March 1, 2019 The Right to Life The old saying, “Give the devil an inch and he will take a foot,” has proven true in recent weeks. Pro-abortion activists have legalized abortion in the third trimester in states such as New York and have even advocated for infanticide once a baby is born alive. Pro-life Congressional members have recognized the sense of urgency to protect our children and future generations. The Senate voted on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors ... Read more

Finishing the Wall February 23, 2019 President Trump Delivers on Wall Funding After an intense stand-off between President Trump and Democrats, the President signed the remaining spending bills and declared a national emergency. The $333 billion budget was less than desired, but with the accompaniment of Presidential action, the wall is well underway. Once again, Congress had little time to read the 1,169-page bill which means many of our Representatives did not know what they were voting for or against. ... Read more

AOC: Against Our Country February 16, 2019 The Liberal Dystopia The Green New Deal (H. Res. 109/S. Res. 59, “GND”) has been the talk-of-the-town this week. The plan, sponsored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-MA), is an extreme liberal’s utopia. Some Democrats including Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Elizabeth Warren (D-OK) immediately voiced their support for the plan, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shied away from fully embracing it. This is the ... Read more

Pelosi Pushes Voter Fraud February 2, 2019 The “For the People” Act is NOT for Americans The first bill introduced in Congress this year was the For the People Act, (H.R. 1).  Despite the charming name, this bill contains over 500 pages of overreaching federal government policies that will disenfranchise voters and make voter fraud more rampant. The Conservative Action Project recently released a memo in opposition to H.R. 1.  The letter laid out the following issues with the bill: Forces states to implement ... Read more

Transgenders in Military Ban Goes into Effect January 26, 2019 After much waiting, the Supreme Court is allowing the President’s transgenders in the military ban to temporarily go into effect. Previously, four federal district judges from Washington, D.C., Seattle, WA, Baltimore, MD, and Riverside, CA tried to stop the ban by ruling in favor of LGBT groups. However, early this year, a Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. ruled in favor of the ban. In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled to ... Read more

Big Data Threatens Our Privacy CAPITOL HILL REPORT January 19, 2019 Against the wishes of concerned citizens, a dangerous data-mining bill, the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (H.R. 4174, “FEPA”), became law this week. Eagle Forum sent out alerts and emails to Congressional and White House staff, however, the influence of the swamp was far too great. Although the bill was sponsored by former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), there was no question as to who was behind the bill- the establishment. House ... Read more

The Inequality Act CAPITOL HILL REPORT January 12, 2019 Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has vowed to make the Equality Act a top priority of Congress this year. The word “equality” has been warped to create a culture that caters to one group of people, and in this case, that group is the LGBT community. The Equality Act was originally introduced in 1974 but was made popular in 2015 when former President Barack Obama announced his support for the legislation. The bill ... Read more

New Year, New Congress January 4, 2019 As we enter into 2019, Congress looks a bit different. With a Democrat majority in the House, barely a Republican majority in the Senate, and a Republican in the White House, the outlook of passing Conservative legislation (or even a simple budget) is dim. However, our job to educate all our representatives on our issues must continue unabated. There are areas in which we can focus our efforts that will be worthwhile. Spread the truth ... Read more

The Shutdown Standoff December 28, 2018 Last Friday, the House surprised us all. House Republicans passed a budget with $5 billion in border wall funding.

Is a Border Wall in the Works? CAPITOL HILL REPORT Is a Border Wall in the Works? December 21, 2018 This has been a confusing and contentious week for Congress.

Vote Tuesday. Get your family and friends to the polls. Every vote counts. November 2, 2018 Vote for Liberty! The midterm election will significantly impact America’s future in freedom.  Next Tuesday will decide whether the many, already incredibly successful policies set in motion under President Trump will continue or whether they collapse under the weight of a new Congressional majority bent on removing Trump from office and implementing their radical, socialist, anti-freedom agenda.

Confronting the Left’s Incivility CAPITOL HILL REPORT Don’t Let Bullies Suppress Our Free Speech October 13, 2018 After weeks of the Democrats waging war on the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh, he was confirmed 50-48 mostly along party lines. The confirmation came a week later than planned after an FBI investigation was called. The investigation found nothing new, but gave Senators who were on the fence the extra motivation they needed to vote for him. The fanfare is not over yet, though. Democrats have no plans of ...

The Failed Budget Continues to Move CAPITOL HILL REPORT The Failed Budget Continues to Move September 21, 2018 While everyone is distracted by the Democrat obstruction of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the Senate has passed a spending bill strangely similar to the last Omnibus, but by another name.

Medicare for All Means Freedom for None CAPITOL HILL REPORT Medicare for All Means Freedom for None September 16, 2018 Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) introduced his Medicare for All Act (S. 1804) last year, but Democrat campaigns have recently ramped up support for it. This single-payer healthcare system idea is hitting a note with the public. A Reuters-Ipsos survey found that 70% of Americans support a Medicare for all policy. Of this percentage, 85% were Democrats while 52% were Republicans. These numbers are extremely troubling ... Read more

Congress is Funding Planned Parenthood and Not Funding the Wall CAPITOL HILL REPORT Congress is Funding Planned Parenthood and Not Funding the Wall September 7, 2018 The House came back into session this week after a long five-week break.

Religious Liberty Upheld by Department of Labor August 20, 2018 A Win for Faith and the First Amendment The Department of Labor issued a directive that protects the religious freedoms of government contractors who disagree with same-sex marriage.

Bush issued an executive order in 2002 that established a framework for faith-based contractors seeking contracts with the federal government. After former President Obama took office, he ...

Would Federally Paid Family Leave Be An Entitlement Program? August 18, 2018 Since the election of President Trump, his daughter, Ivanka Trump, has made paid maternity and family leave a priority of the administration. This has been evident in many of Ivanka’s speeches as well as the President’s White House budget. While this can certainly be appealing, the facts say that it will be more harmful than helpful. Although the United States does not have a federally paid family leave policy, it already has the 1993 ... Read more

Righting the Wrongs of the Obama Administration July 21, 2018 Presidents will typically use their pardon power near the end of their term. However, President Trump has decided to use it throughout his presidency to quickly give certain prisoners relief from the overreach of federal law. One of the most recent instances was the pardons of Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond. The Hammonds who were multi-generational cattle ranchers were convicted of setting fires to public lands in 2012. They said they had used ... Read more

The Diminishing of Obamacare June 25, 2018 Earlier this month, the Department of Justice announced that key parts of Obamacare are now unconstitutional.

When the Supreme Court ruled in favor ... Read more

GOP Agrees to Two Immigration Votes June 15, 2018 Rep. Jeff Denham’s (R-CA) discharge petition (H.Res. 774) failed to get the last two signatures needed to move toward a vote in June.  Immigration is not completely off the table though.  Next week, the House plans to vote on two immigration bills: Rep.

Congress is Open for Business June 1, 2018 Congress Should Not Take a Vacation! One of the most pressing issues this year has been the lack of work from Congress. With a Republican-controlled House, Senate, and Presidency, you would think that we would see more Conservative bills and confirmations of the President’s nominees than we have seen in past years. The Senate has picked up their pace on confirmations, however, there is still much work to be done in that effort, as well ... Read more
