The Constitution means what the delegates of the Philadelphia Convention and of the state ratifying conventions understood it to mean; not what we judges think it should mean. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, American Enterprise Institute speech, Feb 16, 2001

Court decision in California will improve education

Star Parker

Last week’s California superior court decision, striking down teacher tenure law in California public schools, and aspects of the law making it almost impossible to fire tenured teachers, is good news for everyone worried about America’s future. Everyone, except the teachers unions, seems to grasp that public education in America, particularly in low-income communities, suffers because of lack of competition.


The ‘Order Out of Chaos’ Globalists

Bradlee Dean

If America would simply read the warnings from our forefathers, then she would not be made a fool of ill-designing men. Neither would our soldiers who die on the battlefield through unconstitutional wars. If this were not the case, then what did Kissinger mean when he said, “Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy”?

Despite liberal howls, Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling was right

Star Parker

Why exactly is it that Democrats find the Hobby Lobby decision so outrageous that in America religious freedom is respected? That we have law – The Religious Freedom Restoration Act under which the owners of Hobby Lobby sued the federal government – that assures that no federal law will substantially burden individuals in the practice of their religion. Paying for contraception would violate the Christian principles of Hobby Lobby’s owners.


"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
