As President-elect Donald Trump's campaign manager, Mrs. Kellyanne Conway helped pull off one of the most stunning political victories in U.S. history. So, why do the feminists hate her? Why isn't she being praised as a feminist icon by CNN or the gals from The View? Could it be because Kellyanne Conway is outspokenly pro-life?

On the other hand, dire predictions of calamity and apocalyptic happenings seemed to ring in every New Year I can remember. On New Year’s Eve 1972, for example—the so-called “Jacinta’s year”—we were told to brace for the dreaded Three Days of Darkness.

I guess we’re still waiting for those Three Days of Darkness… unless, of course, they’re already here.

It is because they are finding it. Because the realities have at last begun to overcome the false propaganda of the last five decades.
