MARK W. HENDRICKSON The Wall Street Journal editorial page seems to reserve an especially snide sarcasm for Republicans who wander off the path of economic growth. The latest recipient of this acidulous derision was Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL). On Monday, an obviously miffed WSJ editorialist lambasted Sessions for a “critical...
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy learned and used a new word during the Supreme Court’s oral argument about Marriage. He said, “The word that keeps coming back to me in this case is millennia.” He wasn’t talking about the new voting bloc of young people called the...

LIBERTY ALERTS, LIBERTY COUNSEL Orlando, FL – The New Year challenges to natural marriage stormed Florida this week.
