Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavours to renovate the age, by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, of inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity…in short of leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system. — Samuel Adams

Impeachment: Why Should We Allow…?

Bob Ellis

Democrats have, predictably, pooh-poohed the idea of impeaching our lawless president Barack Obama. We expect that. But more than a few "Republicans" also don't want to impeach President Obama.

Mike Rounds Tries to Fix His Big Mistake

Bob Ellis

Former Governor and now U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Rounds screwed up in 2010, and how he's busy trying to put a bandaid on his mistake. The killer of Debbie Martines and her unborn child had been locked away without possibility of parole. Now, thanks to Mike Rounds, Debbie Martines' family must endure parole hearings every eight months to keep him locked up.

Michael Peroutka

Barack Obama has repeatedly threatened that if Congress doesn’t give him his way on immigration and bailouts and Obamacare, he’ll just do it himself. After all, he’s got a pen and a phone. All these bailouts and threatened executive action got me to thinking that maybe there is a common underlying and unspoken premise.

Another Attack on Religious Liberty

Bob Ellis

Religious liberty continues to fall under attack from homosexual activists and their "useful idiots" in government. One of the latest incidents to be reported nationally is in New York, where a family farm is being forced to accommodate a counterfeit wedding for two homosexuals.

Family Reunion

David Whitney

One of the great differences between all the creatures God made on earth and mankind is the long period of dependency. Many creatures are up and out of the nest in a matter of a few months. Human offspring however remain dependent longer than any creatures of comparable size.

Ken Connor

In today's culture we are constantly cajoled about the need to concern ourselves with "niche interests" and to demonstrate acceptance for those who choose to live "outside the norm." Unless, that is, the different characteristic is Down syndrome.

Growing Opposition to Common Core

Rick Manning

Not since conservatives virtually deserted the battlefield over textbook content and curricula in the 1970s leading to the gradual acceptance of the legitimacy of a federal Department of Education, has the public revolted against education policy so completely. The unifying factor is the Obama Administration’s Common Core program that was sold to states as a means to receive federal education dollars.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
