It’s been almost 3 years and yet liberals are still puzzling over how President Trump won the 2016 election.

Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) save thousands of women and babies each year which makes them public enemy number one to the abortion-worshipping left in Hollywood.

Singer Anita Aysola released a pro-abortion song with the Women’s March-inspired Resistance Revival Chorus on Monday. The song was written in response to Georgia’s heartbeat bill, which bans abortion after a baby’s heartbeat can be detected (at about 6 weeks), but is tied up in the courts.

On Thursday, NBC announced that the next season of Will & Grace, the third of its revival and 11th overall, will be the last. The series’ final 18 episodes will be released mid-season in early 2020, offering the show the opportunity to get in some last parting shots at President Donald Trump, but not quite airing close enough to the election for its self-indulgent liberal lectures to serve as true campaign ads reminding Americans why Trump won.

How heartbreakingly sad is it when you’ve had so many abortions you can rank them and decide which one was your “best?” In New York Magazine’s The Cut on June 19, Sarah Miller wrote about the four abortions she's had and which was her "best abortion ever." The article is brutally honest to the point of being cavalier about abortion.
The 2019 BET Awards were held on Sunday night, hosted by actress Regina Hall. Although Hall made a big deal hailing from D.C., the awards were mostly non-politically, with a few exceptions.

Madonna is out with her first album in 4 years, which means it’s time for her to wear something ridiculous, like a sequined eye patch, and say outrageous things for publicity, like that Jesus would agree with abortion.
