States Origin’s

States Origin’s Where did federalism come from? How far had they come by 1890? By Mike Kapic – August 21, 2021 It might seem like a simple task to convert thirteen colonies into thirteen states in the mid-1770s, but it wasn’t without effort and determination. The population of about 3 million found themselves in an unfamiliar place and it had made them anxious, jittery, and nervous, particularly after the battles in Lexington and Concord. They did however, trust their family and neighbors over their legislators.   In our struggle for liberty, the separation War broke out in April of 1775…

Bob Dylan’s Gospel Trilogy

10 Defining Lyrics From Bob Dylan’s Gospel Trilogy On the 40th anniversary of his final of three albums created after converting to Christianity, here’s a compilation of lyrics worth highlighting. By Barry Lenser – AUGUST 12, 2021 Of all the reinventions Bob Dylan has undertaken in his long, shape-shifting career, none was more radical and jarring than his conversion to Christianity in the late 1970s. In terms of defying expectations, not even going electric can compare with going evangelical. This was Bob Dylan after all, a Jewish-born avatar of 1960s counterculture. He could have adopted few other identities that would have felt…

Break Government Schools

Masks And CRT Are Just The Start: It’s Time To Break The Public Schools (And Here’s How) Defund the schools for real. Take the amount of money that every public school is spending, per pupil, and put it under the direct control of parents. By Christopher Bedford – AUGUST 3, 2021 (Watch the video for a monologue on this article and an interview with the executive director of the Claremont Institute’s Center for the American Way of Life, Arthur Milikh, on breaking the power of public schools.) It’s looking to be a miserable fall for school children, at least in the nation’s blue states. Sure, they’ll finally be…

Are Energy Blackouts Coming?

Biden Administration Ignores Looming Disastrous “Blackout Scenario” By AMAC Newsline – August 13, 2021   The dubiously titled “bipartisan infrastructure bill” that just passed the Senate this week includes $73 billion for so-called “upgrades” to the electrical grid. However, as Energy Secretary Granholm has made clear in multiple interviews, the bulk of these dollars will be used to connect intermittent renewable energy sources to the grid. In ignoring the real problems that face the aging American grid infrastructure, the bill completely ignores a true threat to US energy security. For the last several years, the energy grid has been bordering on the…

A New Freedom Variant!

Dangerous New Freedom Variant Causing People To Ignore Government And Live Their Lives July 23rd, 2021 – BabylonBee.com U.S.—Experts are warning of yet another new problem facing the nation: They’ve spotted a new, more dangerous freedom variant spreading among the populace. This freedom is so virulent that people infected by it feel they can ignore government edicts about masks and lockdowns. “Usually, the freedom we see in the wild is fairly mild,” explained CDC official Hubert Pratt. “It’s just freedom to passionately express one of the approved viewpoints on social media or freedom to pick one of the three Obamacare…

Article V-Dynamic Federalism

by Rodney Dodsworth – September 10, 2018    Over a long radio career, Rush Limbaugh regularly slammed the Congressional Budget Office for its static analysis of tax cuts. It is natural to think in linear terms. If Congress cuts taxes by X, then government revenue should fall by X. Right? Except, it often doesn’t work that way. Man and men in society aren’t linear thinkers. Sometimes the output is a magnitude larger and opposite to the input. Cut taxes by X and the output isn’t an X tax loss, but typically a dynamic increase in tax revenue several times the tax cuts. Dynamic response…

Campus Abortion

Protecting Life on College Campuses By Travis Weber – July 23, 2021 It is no secret that the abortion industry deliberately targets vulnerable women in order to expand its reach. Its newest project of invading academic institutions, however, reaches the new low of turning “our college dorm rooms … into abortion clinics,” as Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., told Tony Perkins on “Washington Watch.” The physical and psychological traumas associated with the chemical abortion regimen evince the unique horrors of the procedure—even beyond what we are used to in the abortion context.  Tammi, one victim of the abortion industry’s embrace of this practice, reflected on…

The Power of Purpose

WSJ – July 31, 2021 The Power of Purpose-Driven Schools To engage young people, education needs to be about religious or social values that transcend preparing for a job. By Mark Oppenheimer | 1180 words My 8-year-old daughter is happy most everywhere—she is one of the merriest people I know—and she was always happy to walk, or skip, two minutes down the block every morning to our excellent neighborhood public school in New Haven, Conn. So when we learned it would not open for in-person learning last fall, it was a difficult decision to move her. But she is exceedingly…

A Old ‘Political Party’

States, The Natural Second Party by Rodney Dodsworth – May 16, 2016     While political parties ideally represent the common interests of their members, a contradiction has developed within the GOP over the past twenty years. Leadership and rank-and-file members work toward irreconcilable ends: the retention of power, wealth and status at any cost on the one hand, and change that restores economic prosperity and social cohesion on the other. For years, GOP leadership worked handily with democrat leaders Obama, Pelosi, Reid. Behind closed doors, this common senior leadership develops many thousand page omnibus spending bills. In turn, these assaults on the traditional appropriations…

Ken Ivory on Federalism

If there is one way for American citizens to take their country back, it would be as the Founders intended and instituted in the Constitution. They insisted on the people having the ultimate power and next, the states and national government would check each others power. The other three branches followed suit. Just like the Electoral College is based on federalism, so is Article V. The tools are in the toolbox for us to use.

Charters Take a Beating

WSJ – July 24, 2021 Congress Beats Up Charter Schools A House spending bill cuts funding and adds new political strings. By The Editorial Board | 498 words Democrats in Washington say they want to reduce inequality. So why are they running a guerrilla campaign against charter schools that help so many children escape educational inequality? That’s the untold story at the House Appropriations Committee, where Democrats recently voted to cut $40 million from the federal Charter Schools Program. The cuts came despite an overall 40% increase in federal education funding to $102.8 billion. President Biden’s budget proposed to hold…

Taking the Racism Test

By: Kathleen Brush, Ph.D. – June 30, 2021 Professor Ibram X Kendi is the unremarkable, unapologetically racist “academic” who has become the go-to guy for guiding woke public sector leaders on how to recognize racism and the throughline between systemic racism yesterday and today. In an environment where Kendi’s woke disciples initiate daily reports of racism everywhere, it is a useful skill to be able to recognize racism and any through lines. Why not test your skills? Keep in mind that racism is discrimination based on race, religion, or ethnicity.  Historical: 1700-2000 All North American slaves, excluding spoils of war, after 1700…

COS Opponents

Jaywalking with Convention of States Opponents by Rodney Dodsworth    February 25, 2019     When did a republic extricate itself from imminent tyranny through the election of better or more virtuous people? Perhaps Article V COS opponents will point to the election of President Trump. There’s no doubt that he is a reprieve, but a reprieve is just that, a temporary interruption, a finger in the dike to the tide of tyranny.1 Can we somehow do likewise with Congress and Scotus? Just elect better congressmen and senators who in turn will only consent to conservative judges? Is it reasonable to believe we can do with…

What is Freedom?

The Biggest Thing That Separates Authoritarians From Supporters of Freedom Leonard Read reminds us of how large the chasm is between utopian promises authoritarians offer and what they actually have the wisdom to provide. Gary M. Galles –  July 3, 2021 In today’s media, we are constantly being told of “new and improved” impositions that are needed to replace the “old hat” ideas of freedom and open competition. But the visions held by these proponents could hardly be further from reality. Leonard Read wrote of this decades ago, in “Freedom: A New Vision,” Chapter 2 of his 1975 Castles in the…

America’s Special Purpose?

Does America Have a Special, Divine Purpose? By PAUL GARDINER / AUG. 24, 2015 Author’s Note: Abraham Lincoln once said that his “greatest concern is to be on God’s side for God is always right.” Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson recently said that America needs God’s healing hands now more than ever. I asked myself how do we as a nation, at this particular time in history, get God’s healing hands and how do we ensure that we are on God’s side? In a search to answer these questions, I read a book entitled “The Light and the Glory: Did God Have a…

A House Divided

by E. P. Unum – June 21, 2021 (emphasis added) On June 16, 1858, in Springfield Illinois, some 163 years ago, and only 82 years after our Republic came into being, Abraham Lincoln spoke to over 1,000 delegates and eloquently addressed the hotly debated issue of slavery. In that speech, he uttered these famous words: “A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot permanently endure half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall—but I do expect it will cease to be divided”            And so it was, but…

People’s Sovereignty: 9th Amendment

Article V – Assert our Sovereignty by Rodney Dodsworth    January 27, 2020     Use it or lose it. Article V opponents believe America is too corrupt to be trusted with a Convention of the States. They believe We The People fulfilled Ben Franklin’s fears and are no longer fit for self-government, which if true, means we don’t have any business voting either. Nonsense. Thanks to our collective failure to demand Article V Conventions of the States when necessary, We The People slowly, over decades, relinquished our sovereign authority to Scotus. I challenge anyone to explain the practical limits of the Supreme Court of…

Congress v. Amending Convention

Do The States Need Congress’s Permission To Hold A Constitutional Convention? Ask Civics 101 By MITCHELL SCACCHI • JUL 9, 2021 Our question this week comes from a listener who asks: Under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, do the states need Congress’s permission to hold a convention to propose constitutional amendments, or was this originally proposed by the Framers as a way to bypass Congress in order to amend the Constitution?  Article V of the U.S. Constitution lays out the amendment process for altering our governmental structure. It’s a product of two systems: checks and balances and federalism. The former is an…
