Minor sex change law back in effect after SCOTUS intervenes

In a major victory, our law protecting gender-confused children from sex reassignment drugs and surgeries is back in effect after the U.S. Supreme Court intervened earlier today.

ALERT: Girls feel unsafe using Boise middle school bathrooms and locker rooms

We’ve recently learned that the Boise School District is allowing biological boys to use bathrooms and locker rooms designated for girls. Earlier this spring, school officials at Fairmont Jr. High gave the green light for a gender-confused boy to play on the girls’ volleyball team.  Not only did the boy change in the girls’ locker […]

ALERT: Traditional families are under attack!

Pope John Paul II once remarked, “As the family goes, so goes the nation.” In recent years, however, traditional families have come under assault from many quarters—including no-fault divorce, so-called “same-sex marriage,” cohabitation, surrogacy, sexual promiscuity, and pornography. Thankfully, Sen. Ben Toews (R-Coeur d’Alene) and Rep. Joe Alfieri (R-Coeur d’Alene) have introduced House Concurrent Resolution 35, which would designate the […]

ALERT: Stop Marijuana Billboards

You might have seen one of the many marijuana billboards littering our state roadsides. Even though state law criminalizes marijuana possession and distribution, it doesn’t prohibit advertisements that encourage our residents to cross state lines for unlawful activities.

URGENT ALERT: Hold Fentanyl Traffickers Accountable!

The cartels strike again—this time in the Gem State. Rigoverto Hernandez, a Caldwell-based gang member, was finally sentenced last week after he was caught trafficking 19,900 fentanyl pills and 13.5 pounds of methamphetamine at his AirBnB in 2023. According to law enforcement, Hernandez sold fentanyl on the streets, providing profit to cartel suppliers. In a press release, […]

ALERT: Protect Conservatives from False Charges of “Domestic Terrorism”

You might remember that a few years back, dozens of politically involved parents, pro-life activists, and traditional Catholics were labeled “domestic terrorists” and investigated by the FBI. Frighteningly, one mother was investigated and interviewed by the FBI after a neighbor called an anonymous threat hotline, alleging that she belonged to a “right wing mom’s group” known as […]
