Virginia Is For Lawlessness? 

Decades ago, Virginia tourism officials adopted the slogan, "Virginia is for lovers." With the newly-elected governor and attorney general seem determined to change the slogan to "Virginia is for lawlessness."

Earlier this week we warned that Attorney General Herring had suggested that he might not defend the popularly enacted state marriage protection amendment. During an interview on National Public Radiothis morning, Herring announced his decision:

Defending Life 

Today marks the 41st annual March for Life, which coincides with the tragic anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. That ruling has resulted in, by one count, more than 56 million abortions in America. That's 56 million innocent babies destroyed in the womb; 56 million lives never lived, their contributions to society lost forever.

Obama's Harvest

Governor Mike Pence Fights For Marriage 

Indiana Governor Mike Pence delivered his State of the State address Tuesday and did not hesitate to stand up for normal marriage.

Indiana has been an unlikely battleground in the culture war. While more than 30 states across the country overwhelmingly approved constitutional amendments protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman, liberal politicians who previously controlled Indiana's state legislature routinely refused to let Hoosiers vote on the issue.

Nuke Deal Is Obamacare Of Foreign Policy 

Like Obamacare, President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran gets worse the more we find out what is in it. The goal was to put in place tough conditions to stop Iran from developing its nuclear weapons program. Is that what it does? Not according to the Iranians.

Justices Challenge Obama's Abuse Of Power 

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in a case challenging one of Barack Obama's abuses of power. Like you, I am frustrated that Obama is getting away with what appears to be extra-constitutional actions. Rarely a day goes by when I am not asked, "Why isn't something being done?"

Obamanomics Still Not Working 

Today the Labor Department reported that a puny 74,000 jobs were created last month. That is well short of the 200,000 jobs economists had expected.

Christie In The Crosshairs 

Finally! The media have woken up and are focusing on scandals. What took them so long? 

If you think I'm referring to the IRS scandal, sorry. That's not it. Is Benghazi on the front page of the New York Times? No. In fact, as we have reported, the New York Times has devoted its resources to aiding the Benghazi cover-up. Fast and Furious? Nope. Are the extra-constitutional actions by the president getting attention? Not that either.

Gates Unleashed 

A book by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has Washington buzzing today. In Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, Gates blasts the Obama White House as excessively controlling and obsessed with politics. According to the Washington Post's Bob Woodward, Gates' book "simmers with disappointment in Obama" and "outright contempt for Vice President Biden." For example:
