Liberals in California Target Judges with Boy Scout Ties

Gina Miller

Give them an inch, and they’ll demand a mile. We warned you that the terrible decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow openly homosexual boys into membership would only lead to further attacks against the organization by the militant homosexual Left. We were right, and the target is now judges who have ties to the Scouts.

Rule of Law Refused in California

Newswire

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy Sunday declined to vacate Friday’s premature order from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in the lawsuit concerning California’s marriage amendment. The Proposition 8 legal team filed an emergency application Saturday that argued the 9th Circuit’s order prematurely lifted a stay on a district court order that had declared the amendment unconstitutional.

ADF: SCOTUS Ruling Leaves Proposition 8 Intact

Newswire

The U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday declined to review the validity of Proposition 8, California’s constitutional amendment protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman. According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, without an appellate court decision declaring the amendment unconstitutional, Proposition 8 remains the law of the land in California.

California Outlaws Normalcy; Liberty Counsel Sues to Get it Back

Gina Miller

The radical leftist leadership in California has taken an unprecedented step down the cursed road to Sodom and Gomorrah by declaring it illegal to provide kids under 18 with counseling and therapy to help reduce, manage or eliminate unwanted same-sex attraction. This is truly astonishing. Only a society that has become deeply sickened in its soul would sink to such dark, ignorant depths.

California Leads–In the Wrong Direction

Rebekah Rast

California has the ninth largest economy in the world. Once booming with private corporations, agriculturally rich farmlands and tourists, the state is now losing businesses, much-needed food crops and even vacationers. How did the state that all other states sought to emulate fall to the bottom? Along with pristine beaches and beautiful weather, California also has a tax base unfriendly to businesses and those with wealth; it has a rampant environmental movement destroying communities and industries and caters to and favors the public sector union workforce so much so you’d think the state was on a mission to commit economic suicide.

California: Grateful to Almighty God for Our Freedom

William J. Federer

In 1769, the first Spanish missions were founded in California by Franciscan missionary Junipero Serra, whose statue is in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall. California became the 31st State on SEPTEMBER 9, 1850. Its Constitution, which prohibits slavery, stated: "We, the People of the State of California, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom...do establish this Constitution."

Things Not So Golden in America Anymore

Rebekah Rast

In the 1850s droves of gold-hunters hoping to make it rich rushed into what would later be established as the Golden State. The pristine beaches, vast mountains and plenty of opportunity persuaded some to stay in the state. But now, California is facing a different kind of rush—one that is causing people to pick up and leave.

The Rightful Remedy

Guest Author

Two hundred thirty years after the Founders won American independence from a tyrannical monarch, the inheritors of their estate are facing a hard reality: liberty is jealously defended or it is lost. As all three branches of the federal government exercise powers beyond those granted, our God-given rights are under sustained assault. The question is: what is the remedy?

"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
