In Friday's report I expressed my frustration with the political establishment's unwillingness to defend the traditional values of millions of Americans.

IRS Scandal Update 

Yesterday afternoon more emails related to the IRS scandal were released. They make two things perfectly clear: First, there was a coordinated, intentional effort to target Tea Party groups. Second, senior members of Congress demanded it.

VA Scandal A Preview Of Obamacare's Future 

Everyone should be paying attention to the VA scandal. Not only is the disgraceful treatment of our veterans a national outrage, but it offers us a potential glimpse into the future of Obamacare.

Dr. Richard Krugman, the former associate chief of staff at the Veterans Affairs health care system in Harlingen, Texas, is among the growing number of whistleblowers at VA facilities to allege that poor treatment led to unnecessary deaths. Dr. Krugman specifically cited a cost-cutting policy limiting colonoscopies.

Our Hashtag Foreign Policy 

The tragedy of the kidnapped Nigerian girls continues. From the past acts of Boko Haram, we can assume that by now most of the girls have been sexually abused. Now their jihadist captors have forcibly converted them to Islam. A video has been released showing them reciting Koranic verses in Arabic. It's not clear whether that was before or after they were raped.

Rally For Religious Freedom

This morning I joined the leaders of 15 other pro-family, pro-life organizations at the "Rally for Religious Freedom." The event took place in front of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, which is widely considered the second-most important court in the country. The rally was sponsored by Priests for Life and the Archdiocese of Washington, which were in court today fighting Obamacare's contraception mandate.

The Real War On Women 
There is a lot of talk about a "war on women" in America. It is utter nonsense spewed by leftist politicians trying to disguise their radical social agenda. There is a very real war on women going on in many Muslim countries, and the left frequently ignores it. Recent tragic events have forced some in the media to confront it.

Thank you, my friends! Donations poured in yesterday and we met our spring goal. Thanks to your support, we are back on track.

Good News & Bad News On Religious Liberty 
The Supreme Court handed down a decision today on the constitutionality of prayers at government events. The case before the court concerned the town of Greece, New York, which opened its board meetings with a roll call, the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer delivered by local clergy. 

Two residents sued the town because the prayers were predominantly Christian. In its defense, the town argued that it wasn't discriminating because "nearly all of the local congregations are Christian."
