Bill S.240

New York has just passed legislature updating their current laws on Abortion. Some argue that this is a monumental step in protecting reproductive health rights and others claim that it is a moral atrocity. There are many articles stating that this legislature allows for abortion up to birth and strips all rights away from infants. […]

The Hope of Redemption

To whom then will you compare me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name; by the greatness of his might and because he is strong in power, not […]

International AIDS Conference: Two Sides to the Story, but Where is the Truth?

The International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) is like an unkempt braid. There are three distinct stories intertwined in an effort to resemble a whole, yet the individual strands are still evident. The first story is the one made up of “marginalized groups” advocates, which include “sex workers,” transgender individuals, “men who have sex with men” […]

My Overall Impression of CSW61

Overall, my experience attending the Commission on the Status of Women 61 was a positive one, despite the UN’s liberal agenda. If not for C-Fam, the issue of life would not be represented at all. I noticed that for any of the sections whenever the issue of life was brought up by question askers, the […]

Realpolitik

El concepto “realpolitik” refiere una visión de la política partiendo del “realismo” de sus circunstancias y fines (en contraposición del idealismo). Sin embargo, podríamos decir que este concepto, además, conlleva la preocupación por conservar el poder, un elemento que ha estado presente en todo el transcurso de la historia. Desde las conquistas romanas hasta la expansión de Daesh, […]

Hillary Clinton Admits Person-hood of the Unborn

Hillary Clinton has contradicted herself yet again. In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, Hillary confirmed that she is inconsistent beyond belief on her positions concerning abortion. The most illogical statement that Hillary makes in this interview is when asked when or if the unborn child has constitutional rights, in which she responded: “The […]

On Wednesday, February 12th Republican presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina, announced the suspension of her presidential campaign. While she no longer has the potential to be in the White House in 2017, there are several important leadership lessons we can learn from her campaign.  Attack Ideas, not People: In a culture when ad hominem attacks are commonplace, […]

President Obama

A Flaw in the State of the Union

Last week we heard President Obama’s State of the Union address. In the course of an hour, there was one aspect that particularly struck me, although it was relatively brief. After talking about the economy and job market for the majority of the speech, Obama closed with a call for bipartisan cooperation, asking politicians to […]

Youth and Hope in Politics

One month ago we had our midterm elections, and for conservatives, they were incredibly successful. The Republican Party won the majority in the Senate, giving them control over both houses of Congress. On election night, I was at Governor Sam Brownback’s watch party in Topeka, Kansas. Some friends and I were involved in his campaign, […]
