Jerry Davich: Why the uproar was different after a baby’s murder – Post-Tribune.


Hello. Don’t recognize me?

That’s OK; I understand.

My name was Antonio West.

I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.

I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.

Understand this, folks, if you glean…

A Message from Jim DeMint of Heritage


Fellow Conservative,

After six years of bad policies and worse leadership, liberals are finally realizing just what a calamity the Obama administration has been.

Even the reliably liberal New York Times said “even the slightest injection of the Obama brand into this election seems perilous for Democrats.”

But this bad political environment for liberals doesn’t change the fact that the radical Obama agenda remains in place — and that liberals want to double down.

Government continues to expand. Obamacare remains in force. The economy is still handicapped by red tape and high taxes and overzealous bureaucrats.

It’s midnight in America. And it’s our turn to shine the light.

After years of disastrous liberal leadership, Americans are desperate for an alternative. Conservatives have the advantage now. You and I need to press that advantage.

That’s why The Heritage Foundation and Heritage Action for America are undertaking an urgent joint initiative to…
