Republican Party of Iowa Chair A.J. Spiker was simply stating facts when he said that the Iowa Democratic Party is the gay marriage party during Iowa Press.
Former Iowa Speaker of the House Chris Rants says to vote yes on Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins retention. His logic has some flaws.

Chuck Hurley, the president of Iowa Family Policy Center which is now under the parent organization the Family Leader outlined their priorities in the next couple of years. First he mentioned 2012 where they hope to make an impact with a possible endorsement and will look to candidates who support social conservative issues and godly […]
She would probably still have a job. From a ruling that just came down today Galloway v. State. I’m not familiar with the case, but what we should find interesting is what soon-to-be-former Chief Justice Ternus and Justice Mark Cady wrote in their dissent: Courts are, at times, capable of deciding legal issues based on […]
By Dale Mastarone In the 10-21-10 Osceola Sentinel-Tribune I took interest in a letter to the editor that was submitted with a number of local lawyers signing onto it who all asserted to be members of the Clarke County Bar Association. The letter urged local electors to vote Yes to retain judges and justices for […]
This will be as political as we’ll get here. I wanted to give Jeff Mullen, the pastor of Point of Grace Church in Waukee, IA a shout-out for the great video made to encourage pastors to help prepare their congregations for November 2nd’s judicial retention election. He is spearheading a coalition of pastors in order […]

By Rev. Cary K. Gordon So many times we read editorials claiming “if it had not been for the courts, we’d still have slavery in America today!” This shameless untruth is nearly always stated in an attempt to praise modern-day judicial activism, (without which homosexual marriage in Iowa could not exist). Besides the glaringly obvious […]
Bob Vander Plaats just launched the online component for his campaign to oust the Iowa Supreme Court Justices up for retention. You can find it at http://www.iowafamilyvalues.com. Not much there yet as he’s basically revamping what was his gubernatorial campaign website, but you can sign-up to receive updates. What new information we do learn is […]
Predictably, The Des Moines Register wrote an editorial yesterday entitled, “public opinion can’t decide court cases” after news that there will be an organized campaign to oust the Supreme Court justices up for retention this year. While that is true that public opinion should not decide court cases, the public can and should hold a […]
I was unable to attend Bob Vander Plaats’ press conference this morning, but heard about it from a friend this afternoon and then saw the press release in my inbox tonight. Confirming what I thought when I heard the event was to be held in front of the Iowa Judicial Building, he’s not launching an […]
After the Iowa Supreme Court’s ruling last year declaring Iowa’s Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich declared that the ruling showed “judicial arrogance.” Then he predicted a major battle over judicial power. Yesterday, speaking to a group of pastors and church leaders in Des Moines, IA, Newt Gingrich highlighted […]
That is certainly a question that people here are asking. What to do, those who supported Bob Vander Plaats won’t be getting the executive order placing a stay on the Iowa Supreme Court’s decision on Iowa’s DOMA law they hoped for. I, among others, felt this law executive order was likely unconstitutional. I know that […]
