JAY SEKULOW, ACLJ I’m on my way to New York City to speak at the United Nations General Assembly tomorrow. At the Ambassadors Against BDS International Summit at the U.N., my message is as simple as it is important – We stand against the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement...
BY PAUL G. KENGOR In a stunning moment in the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Neil Gorsuch, Senator Dianne Feinstein, a staunch supporter of so-called “abortion rights,” took umbrage with one of Gorsuch’s previous written statements. As Feinstein described it, “He believes there are no exceptions to the principle...
~Reining in the budget and activities of this bloated bureaucracy is essential~ By Scot Faulkner President Trump’s budgetary assault on the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is long overdue.  He is forcing a rethinking that will benefit America and the world. The State Department is one...
LLOYD MARCUS, THE UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN The Left continues to relentlessly promote their lie that Trump stole the election by scheming with the Russians. Their goal is to get enough people believing Trump's presidency is illegitimate that they can impeach him. Folks, these people on the Left and GOP establishment still do...
BY PHILIP VANDER ELST For decades, many observers of the contemporary cultural scene have been rightly concerned about the growing evidence that materially advanced Western societies are experiencing a process of moral breakdown and social fragmentation resulting in high levels of crime, anti-social behaviour, and cultural decay. At the same...
BY SELWYN DUKE People like thinking the best of themselves, which is partially why we have “trigger warnings,” “microaggressions” and claims of “taking offense” — so these complainers don’t have to come to terms with the fact they’re spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats. Here’s how it works: When accusing you of...
~How can society better ensure that leaders and innovators are there when we need them?~ James E. Smith, PhD Leadership is too often overlooked by the very societal systems that rely on it. Every social and organizational level depends on leaders and their direct and indirect efforts, to provide progress, success,...
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~Coal ash scare stories are the latest tactic in their long war on coal-fueled electricity generation~   Coal-fired power plant scrubbers now remove 80-90 % of airborne particulate, mercury, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and other pollutants. But that means “fly ash” and noncombustible residues (what we used to call...
JAY SEKULOW, ACLJ Today , the ACLJ filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court asking it to intervene in a critically important First Amendment free speech case on behalf of three California crisis pregnancy centers (“CPCs”). In October of 2015, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the so-called “Reproductive...
BY MARK W. HENDRICKSON The Republican-proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA) that the House of Representatives is expected to vote on this Thursday has been called a bill that everybody dislikes for one reason or another. Democrats are hoping that the AHCA will be as unpopular as the 2010 Affordable...
By David Barton March 17 is annually celebrated in Boston as "Evacuation Day," commemorating the departure of the British from the city after an extended eleven month occupation at the start of the American War for Independence. That occupation lasted from April 19, 1775, through March 17, 1776, encompassing the Siege of...
LLOYD MARCUS, THE UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN I am a black Tea Party guy; speaker, singer, activist and prolific writer. I became exposed and educated about home-schooled kids while traveling the country on 14 Tea Party national bus tours. Home-schooled kids are strikingly smarter, better educated, calmer and better behaved. I also...
~Why does government refuse to do the one thing that would help our forests and climate?~ By Greg Walcher For years, politicians have waged war on coal, stifled oil and gas production, and advocated carbon taxes and other extreme measures to reduce carbon dioxide, while ignoring one of the most...
BY T.F. STERN My wife and I went to Florida this past week.  We found that travel and lodging during Spring Break involves cashing in a couple of CDs since prices qualify for gouging; but that’s a whole other story. The purpose of our trip was to scatter my father’s ashes,...
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~FSB, Climate Cabal expand power and wealth, by targeting financial and insurance industries~ The $1.5-trillion Climate Crisis industry is not about to go quiet into that dark night, or to strut but an hour upon the stage, to then be heard no more. In these desperate times, it...
BY MICHAEL SARGENT Following on his pledge to eliminate wasteful and inappropriate federal programs, President Donald Trump’s budget blueprint delivers when it comes to the Department of Transportation. Trump’s budget blueprint shears the Department of Transportation’s discretionary budget by $2.4 billion—some 13 percent—by slashing some of its most egregious programs. Although most...
MARY CLARE REIM, HERITAGE FOUNDATION The Trump administration’s proposed budget blueprint for 2018 significantly cuts waste in federal higher education spending. For decades, the federal government has increased spending on higher education programs with not much to show for it—other than higher tuition prices. Today, American students and taxpayers are in bad...
BY PHILIP VANDER ELST Living as we do in the age of the Internet and 24/7 radio and television, our lives and perspectives are now dominated as never before by the daily news cycle and the insistent pressures of the immediate present. The resulting shortening of our time horizons, combined...
BY PAUL G. KENGOR The ability of the communist left to consistently mislead and use an ever-wider group of people never ceases to amaze. I wrote a few weeks ago about the Women’s March, a shocking display of vulgarity that erupted after the Trump inaugural in January, where none other than...
LLOYD MARCUS, THE UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN While piddling around in my work shop, I heard this sound bite on the radio of Trump talking about his upcoming speech to congress that evening. President Trump said, “All I can do is speak from the heart and say what I want to do.” http://bit.ly/2ltFIyz...
