Planned Parenthood rejects $60 million federal Title X money after the Trump administration says grant recipients cannot refer women to abortion providers as a method of family planning. The grant money normally goes to fund birth control, screenings for sexually transmitted diseases, as well as breast and cervical cancer detection. How has President Trump — a man with shifting convictions on the life issue — achieved the first substantive shift in the pro-life direction in decades?
Federal Circuit judge blocks President Trump from forcing drug makers to reveal prices in their advertising. But D.C. Circuit Judge Amit Mehta did so by saying a regulatory agency doesn’t have authority to require this: Congress must pass a law. How can conservatives grapple with two objects of their desire in conflict — the end of Obamacare, and a commitment to Constitutional separation of powers.
Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg praises her new colleague, Brett Kavanaugh, for being the first Supreme Court Justice to hire an all-female staff. Bill Whittle rarely finds anything to celebrate in Ginsburg’s actions or public statements, but this time she’s not only the Notorious R.B.G., but the Gracious R.B.G.. Yet CBS News misses a crucial detail in this story of historic firsts for women.
Democrat Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has a plan to make the Supreme Court less political by increasing the number of judges — a plan to pack the court. Meanwhile, Matt Ford at NewRepublic.com, says Mayor Pete’s plan won’t fix the Supremes, so he recommends a random drawing for new court picks, with term limits. Will either of these plans depoliticize the highest court, or simply lock in Progressive dominance of the judicial branch?
Former Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens says the worst decision of his life was the court’s DC v. Heller ruling, which recognized the individual right to keep and bear arms. Of course, Stevens voted with the minority in Heller. In a new book, he says he’s still convinced the framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights meant to protect gun rights only for use in organized militias. Bill Whittle mansplains to Stevens the meaning of a simple English sentence known as the 2nd Amendment.
After a decade of justice denied — under Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, John Brennan, James Comey, and others — Bill Whittle thinks he now detects a whiff of fear among those in that cabal. Former CIA Director John Brennan, usually a cool calculating man, seems frightened about the probe into how the Russia collusion investigation began.
As the Trump administration sues to cancel Obamacare, GOP voters must ask why legislation from the bench is now ok. Is the Democrats’ signature lawfare tactic considered principled conservatism now that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch sit on the Supreme Court?
When 44 Senate Democrats voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act, they made a statement about you. They believe that, after witnessing a failed late-term abortion, most Americans would stand aside and let the baby die on the table. Will America stand with this Democratic Party in 2020?
Robert Mueller and Senate probes find no collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia, so House Democrats launch at least three new investigations of their own. Will this spell #winning for Democrats in the 2020 elections.
The New York State Reproductive Health Act — the new abortion law — takes the debate beyond the question of pro-choice or pro-life. It removes abortion from the criminal code, loosens who can perform one and how late, and prepares the state in case the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. Bill Whittle calls it […]
In New Prime vs. Oliveira, the Supreme Court just said contract workers can’t automatically be forced into expensive, lengthy, often-unjust, mandatory arbitration. Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the unanimous opinion. Have the court’s conservatives lurched to the Left? Bill Whittle Now is a production of the Members at https://billwhittlecom.wpengine.com
College-educated women — offended by Trump, outraged by Kavanaugh, and clinging to abortion rights — are leaving the GOP, and Republicans don’t seem to have a plan to stem the tide. Bill Whittle Now brings the message he thinks will persuade them to stay and fight. To help create this show, and others like it, […]
Stephen Green laments a greater loss after the 2018 midterm elections — the Republicans lost opportunity when they had the House majority. Scott Ott finds a golden nugget in the muck, and Bill Whittle pushes back on Steve’s regret over losing earmarks.
With millions of votes already cast in the Congressional elections, Bill Whittle explains why you should vote — and vote Republican — even if you’re… – a never-Trumper who still can’t stand the president, – an Independent who wants to do the right thing, – a frustrated American who’s sick of the partisan division, or […]
