Joe Biden Exposed the Standards of the General Election

Jack Shields | @Jack_Shields20

The general election is still over a year away. We can’t trust presidential polls too much, especially if they’re within the margin of error. However, one candidate is not within the margin of error. Joe Biden is blowing Trump away. He has the moderate, blue-collar appeal that could win back the Rust Belt and give the suburban women uncomfortable with Trump a home in the Democratic Party. Every Democratic candidate will lose to Trump except for Biden, who would win in a blowout.

Georgia’s Heartbeat Bill Could Federally Restrict Abortions

Nate Galt | United States

Last week, Georgia lawmakers passed a bill that bans abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. Dubbed the “heartbeat bill,” the legislation would make abortions illegal if the fetus has a heartbeat.

However, numerous celebrities and activists are pressuring him to veto the legislation. Many of Hollywood’s elite petitioned to end their work in the state should the abortion restriction become law.

Anti-Trump Hysteria is Turning Democrats Into Warmongers

By Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

The ghost of John McCain has risen to possess the most unlikely host: the Democrats. Trump’s magical aura seems to automatically turn anyone with a (D) in front of their names against him. This occurs regardless of his policy decision. Orange man is always bad. Doesn’t matter what he did, has done, or will do. Orange man is bad, even when orange man is creating a world where fewer people die.

On Thursday, February 28th, immediately following the passage of HR 8, HR 1112 made its way through the Democrat-controlled House as well. 228 votes to 198, HR 1112 will now go to the Senate floor.

HR 1112 extends the allotted time for the FBI to complete federal background checks. Prior to the law, it was three days, but it could now take up to ten days to purchase a firearm.
