  • ACLU: West Virginia attorney general trying to block transgender girl from participating in school

    When you read this tweet from the ACLU, it sounds like West Virginia’s attorney general is trying to block a 12-year-old transgender girl from attending school. West Virginia's attorney general is trying to block a 12-year-old transgender girl from continuing to participate in school — and he's trying to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court. We urge the Court to reject this egregious and cruel case. — ACLU (@ACLU) March 20, 2023 Well, this is a lie. — Chad Felix Greene (@chadfelixg) March 21, 2023 Yes, it is. By “continuing to participate in school,”...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - On Monday afternoon, a West Virginia circuit judge granted a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of West Virginia’s 1800s-era criminal abortion ban. As a result, abortions are once again legal in the Mountain State. This case pits the Women’s Health Center of West Virginia against the State of West Virginia. The ACLU, on behalf of the Health Center, was seeking an injunction to stop the enforcement of the 100-year-old law that criminalized abortion in West Virginia. The ACLU argues the state’s criminal abortion statute cannot co-exist with modern laws passed since Roe V. Wade. That includes...

    West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) is advising sheriffs in his state to stay on task processing concealed carry permit applications and issuing those permits for applicants legally able to carry a gun. Morrisey wants residents of this state to maintain the ability to defend themselves, regardless of coronavirus shutdowns and/or social distancing requirements. The NRA-ILA quoted Morrisey saying, “While we want our residents to be safe and practice good social distancing, we also want to ensure they can still exercise their right to keep and bear arms.” On March 27, 2020, Breitbart News reported Texas Attorney General Ken...

    If Joe Manchin loses in West Virginia, that will be one mountain-mama of a story. RealClearPolitics now assesses the race as a toss-up, moving it out of the Leans Democrat yesterday as part of its Election Eve final calls. That would be perhaps the most stunning upset of the night, not because of West Virginia’s voting character but because of Manchin’s storied record as a political survivor: Democratic incumbent senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia is in the fight of his political life, as his race against Republican Patrick Morrisey was changed to “toss up” on the eve of the...

Manchin leads Morrisey by four points—49 to 45 percent—in the heated West Virginia race. Thirty-six percent of West Virginia voters said they will “definitely” vote for Manchin, 11 percent will probably vote for the West Virginia Democrat, and two percent are leaning towards voting for him. In contrast, 36 percent said they will definitely vote for Morrisey, eight percent will probably vote for the AG, and one percent lean towards voting for the West Virginia Republican.

    President Trump went after Democrats Saturday night at a rally in West Virginia, a state whose Democratic senator could be a crucial swing vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Mr. Trump targeted West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, calling him "Washington Liberal Joe" and linking him to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters. If Democrats are elected, Mr. Trump said, "you'll have Venezuela, Big Version." Manchin is one of the Senate's most vulnerable Demoracts up for re-election this year. Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, meaning that they can only afford to lose one...

    For years, the most popular politician in West Virginia, hands down, was Joe Manchin. Twice elected governor, the centrist Democrat is now running for re-election as the Mountain State’s senior senator. In 2016, however, Manchin’s mantle was passed to Donald Trump, who carried the state by 42 percentage points over Hillary Clinton. The president remains nearly as popular today as he was on the last Election Day, and as the West Virginia Senate race approaches the post-Labor Day home stretch, the question is whether the Trump mystique will be enough to send Manchin into early retirement. He delivered a clear...

    Patrick Morrisey is leaning on the president to turn around his campaign against the incumbent Democrat. BECKLEY, W.Va. — Republicans can't seem to figure out how to beat Joe Manchin. On paper, Manchin should be an easy mark in November: an incumbent Democrat in a state where President Donald Trump won two-thirds of the vote in 2016 and remains overwhelmingly popular. Yet Manchin holds a comfortable lead in public and private polling, and interviews with multiple Republican operatives involved in or closely following the race indicate it has slipped out of the top tier of Senate contests. Republicans are worried...

    SNIP Tuesday night’s primary election results in Indiana, Ohio, and West Virginia provided a major lift to the GOP’s likelihood of maintaining the Senate. In Indiana, Mike Braun, a pro-Trump businessman, capitalized on his grassroots support to defeat two sitting U.S congressmen in order to challenge Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) in the fall. Congressman James Renacci (R) won his primary in Ohio in decisive fashion in order to take on Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio). And perhaps most importantly, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey pulled off a major upset in a three-way race, defeating the ever-controversial Don Blankenship, guaranteeing a...

    I have spent my life public service and public policy fighting for conservative ideals. Limited government, free-market policies, traditional values, American exceptionalism – these are the issues that gave rise to the Reagan Revolution and the modern day Republican Party. Over the past 30-plus years since Ronald Reagan urged America to partake in a “rendezvous with destiny,” these principles have come under attack – not just from the liberals, but from within our own party. We have watched Republicans talk about reining in government on the campaign trail, only to become part of the problem the minute they are sworn...
