MIT Torches Masks

The COVID Panic Mafia’s Mask Fetish Just Went Up in Flames. MIT Researchers Torched It. By Matt Vespa – Apr 25, 2021 How many times have we seen it from the liberal media? They detail a large gathering, with the insufferable comment “no masks.” The mask has been the crutch for the panic peddlers, something they think offers a total shield against COVID. Wrong. It doesn’t. I wore a mask and I still contracted the virus last November. Second, the so-called experts led by Dr. Anthony Fauci and his crew have clung to mask-wearing even for those who have been…

Voter Suppression for Some

Democrat States: “Voter Suppression” for Me, but Not for Thee  By AZ Free Enterprise Club – 4/13/2021 It is now very obvious that the left and liberal media’s commitment to false and hyperbolic rhetoric regarding election bills in Arizona, Georgia, Texas, and elsewhere is not about policy but rather demonizing Republicans. But the jig is up. Characterizing every Republican-led effort to implement reasonable election reforms as “Jim Crow 2.0” (laws that legalized racial segregation) is not only offensive, it is lazy, hypocritical, and getting very tiresome. For example, SB 1106, sponsored by Senator Mesnard, would require county recorders, upon confirmation that a voter…

State Legislature: Balance Fed Power

To balance federal/state power, state legislators must rise to their constitutional role by LaVarr Webb – April 21, 2021 How Freedom is Protected. In Federalist 51, James Madison wrote: “In the compound republic of America, the power surrendered by the people is first divided between two distinct governments (federal and states), and then the portion allotted to each (is) subdivided among distinct and separate departments (executive, legislative and judicial). Hence, a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself.” In this era of…

Small Business Helping Oligarchy

How American Small Businesses Are Being Coerced To Help Build The Oligarchy While corporations are leading our government by the nose, small business is more often an unwilling victim, pleading for any path they can to survive their rulers. By Christopher Bedford – APRIL 22, 2021 WASHINGTON, D.C. — In big cities across America, we have seen some laugh-out-loud-ridiculous “COVID-prevention” measures in bars and restaurants. No menus allowed. Masks off when you’re at a table. Masks on when you go to the bathroom. Disposable cups only. “Hold a minute while we wipe down the chairs.” Leave your name and your phone number…

Public School Alternative

New Data Shows Homeschooling Explosion! by Gary Benoit April 2, 2021 New data from the U.S. Census Bureau confirm earlier polling results showing an unprecedented explosion in the number of families choosing to educate their children at home, free from government indoctrination, sexualization, forced masking, and dangerous dumbing down. Homeschooling rates grew fastest among black Americans. The shift has been enormous. By the fall of 2020, the overall number of homeschooling families doubled, Census data show. In the Spring of 2020, just over 5 percent of families were educating children at home. By the fall, homeschoolers grew to represent over 11 percent of all…

Christian Persecution

More evidence Christians are under assault By Mike Huckabee – 4/3/21 On this holiest of weekends, there is more evidence that Christians are under assault on all fronts from emboldened secular forces on the left. To list just a few headlines from the past couple of days: Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, is under attack for saying that President Biden should stop claiming to be a “devout Catholic” when he’s actively promoting and funding huge numbers of abortions. Frankly, that not only sounds quite reasonable, it also sounds like exactly what a…

Illegal Migrants Surge!

WSJ – April 10, 2021 Biden’s Surge at the Southern Border By The Editorial Board | 271 words The White House has tried to pass off the migrant surge at the U.S.-Mexico border as nothing more than a routine seasonal sojourn. “It happens every year,” President Biden said in a news conference last month. New York Rep. Ritchie Torres called the crisis “more of a cyclical occurrence than a unique consequence of the Biden Administration policy.” Bad timing, as the latest data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows. CBP said this week that there were more than 172,300 encounters…

Congress: Spending Like Drunk…Dogs

National Debt – Up, Up and Away! By Stuart MacPhail – April 2021 “At our current rate of spending, the US will be unable to confront major problems in the future because we’ve already stretched ourselves too thin,” says Willis I. Krumholz, a writer for The Federalist, in a March 4 article headlined Is Our Exploding National Debt Fueling An Economic Crash? He says, “This situation threatens US national security.  Right now, the US national debt to GDP is about 100 percent, reaching World War II levels but without the world war,” and, “Estimates say that by the end of the decade, we’ll be…

National Beer Day!

[Editor: 36 of 48 states were required ratify repeal of Prohibition of which 43 legislatures agreed to call conventions and 39 met to repeal prohibition. Nothing else happened—no runaway] The beginning of the end for Prohibition (a.k.a. National Beer Day!) By Tara Ross – April 7, 2021 On this day in 1933, Americans are finally allowed to drink beer again! Well, sort of. Prohibition was still technically in effect, but Congress was working to ease the pain a bit. Indeed, some parts of the country celebrate this day as National Beer Day. Prohibition was then entering its 14th year. Since…

“Woke” Corporate America

Have “Woke” Corporations Become The Greatest Threat To Our Freedoms? It’s Not Okay For Corporations To Take Away Our Freedom Just Because They’re Not Government Many Americans don’t see the erosion of liberties as major threats because they’re coming from corporate, not government. By Tristan Justice – April 14, 2021 If you want to take over the world, build an American corporate empire to monopolize the public square and ban dissent. Then, form a corporate coalition of like-minded peers who graduated from the same elite universities where wokeism is indoctrinated as a secular religion to strategize on circumventing republican governance.…

Scalia & Article V Conventions

What did former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia really say and believe about Article V conventions? By Stuart MacPhail – April 2021Below are direct quotes from Scalia during a May 1979 forum on the topic, sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute, when he was still a law professor at the University of Chicago. “I do not have a lack of trust in the American people. I am the one here who is least terrified of a convention.”AND“The one remedy specifically provided for in the Constitution is the amendment process that bypasses Congress. I would like to see that amendment process used just once.…

State Federalism in Action

Missouri GOP Stops Left-Wing Takeover in its Tracks By AMAC Newsline  – April 7, 2021     AMAC Exclusive Unnoticed by much of the media, Republicans in Missouri are taking a brave stand against a left-wing takeover of the state–and their courage could show the way for other legislatures to do the same. After a statewide initiative passed last August backed by deep-pocketed, out-of-state liberal interest groups, Missouri was slated to expand Medicaid to cover working age, able-bodied adults under ObamaCare. It was a massive, permanent expansion of the welfare state destined to result in countless more citizens on the government dole–a tragic…

DC Nullification Through Federalism

Federalism: a tug-of-war between states and DC SC Legislators Press Forward with Federalism Powers – By Stuart MacPhail – April 2021 HB3012 with 48 sponsors, and SB369 with 7 sponsors, under consideration in South Carolina, are part of a broad, multi-faceted “Pushback Agenda” aimed at what SC legislators believe to be unlawful overreach by the federal government.  These bills deal with federally-imposed firearm restrictions, but other items on this “agenda” deal with other aspects of the impact of federal regulations on SC citizens. The bill does not use the word “nullification,” but the bill’s primary sponsor, State Rep. Bill Taylor, said, “Who can step on the…

Tyranny of the Media

THE FOURTH ESTATE By: John Green – March 20, 2021 Outside the Bible our Constitution is probably the world’s greatest written document. In writing the Constitution our Founders recognized the need to ensure citizens had access to all points of view and information. The First Amendment does just that: “Congress shall make no law …abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,…” The press is considered to be all of today’s media. It was realized that our form of government could not flourish without a free flow of information and ideas.    So what could go wrong? Everything if the great majority…

Taxing & Spending Trillions More

Biden Unveils Another Trillion-Dollar Spending “Plan” By AMAC Action – April 1, 2021           Joe Biden released the latest installment in the Democrats’ radical plan to transform America into a socialist society with fewer jobs and more dependence on government disguised as an “infrastructure plan.” This $2.5 trillion step on the agenda follows up on last month’s $1.9 trillion in deficit spending that dramatically expanded the welfare state and the trillion dollars left unspent from last year’s Coronavirus legislation. A sample of the so-called infrastructure plan’s lowlights: Eight years of spending paid for over 15 years. $100 billion to further…

Worst Ideas in Education

Common Core and Critical Race Theory infiltrate civics while Republicans applaud. By Jane Robbins – March 2021 The Educating for Democracy Act (EDA) is an alarming piece of legislation in the U.S. Congress that unfortunately has support from naïve Republicans. At a price tag of $1 billion annually to taxpayers, the EDA promotes “Action Civics” as a new curriculum whose sole purpose is to turn young people into political activists. This is not your grandfather’s civics where founding principles and processes for good government are explained. Instead, it is an indoctrination program that teaches students how to become politically involved…

Forced Equality

The ‘Gay’ Assault on Family and Faith The systematic devolution of gender by cadres of heterophobic science deniers. By MARK ALEXANDER – MAR. 31, 2021 “It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors.” —George Washington (1789) This column is something of an outlier, and I suspect it will in some part offend a small number of readers for reasons that will become apparent. This week, as we prepare to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, it is a fitting time…

Our Current Civil War

America’s Current Civil War Rages Over Judeo-Christian Values Judeo-Christian values are essentially another term for biblical values. Judaism and Christianity are both based on the Old Testament—its God, its Ten Commandments, its admonition to love one’s neighbor as oneself, to love God, to lead a holy life, etc. By Dennis Prager – March 30, 2021 Conservatives often speak of Judeo-Christian values and how the current civil war in the United States and the rest of the West is essentially a battle between those values and the left, which rejects Judeo-Christian values. They are right. But they rarely explain what Judeo-Christian values…

Federal Government

Writer Alleges: ‘Federal Government is clearly out of control’ by Stuart MacPhail – April 2021 Perhaps We Should Give the Constitution a Try says the headline in a March 15 opinion piece by John Green, published by Conservative Daily News. Green starts with the premise: “The Federal Government is clearly out of control.”  He follows that with reference to the tens of thousands of federal rules (laws, regulations, and executive orders) imposed on Americans, and the tens of trillions of dollars of national debt the federal government has built up.  Does anyone doubt Green’s premise? He talks about efforts (tactics) to elect more…

Discovering More Election Truth

Judge Orders New Election After Discovering Unsettling Truth About Majority of Absentee Ballots By Elizabeth Stauffer – March 4, 2021 A Mississippi judge has ordered a new runoff election to be held for the alderman seat in Aberdeen’s Ward 1. Special Judge Jeff Weill cited “evidence of fraud and criminal activity in how absentee ballots were handled, how votes were counted, and the actions by some at the polling place” in a 64-page order, according to WCBI-TV. In the Democratic runoff election last June, Nicholas Holliday defeated his opponent, Robert Devaull, by 37 votes. Devaull then challenged the results in court. The…

Biden Rejects Rule of Law

In Abortion Case, The Supreme Court Can Stop Biden From Pushing Extreme Rules In Secret Deals The Biden administration has abandoned the legally mandated rulemaking process to establish its preferred policies through closed-door settlements with political allies. By Margot Cleveland – MARCH 19, 2021 Elections have consequences. Abandoning the rule of law should not be one of them. That matters not, though, to the Biden administration, which has abandoned the legally mandated rulemaking process to establish its preferred policies through closed-door settlement agreements with political allies. To stop the administration from gutting the governing Title X regulations on abortion providers, however, Ohio…

Holy Week History

How And Where Did The Original Holy Week Happen? The days of Holy Week can be reconciled by careful accounting of events and by recognizing alternative ways that ancients used to mark time. By G.W. Thielman – MARCH 29, 2021 Christians around the world prepare for their Good Friday vigil by remembering the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, beginning in the late fourth century. This chronology assumes that Jesus’ trial by the Sanhedrin following his arrest at Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives commenced the night before his crucifixion. Another debate concerns whether the Last Supper that Jesus celebrated with his disciples…

Slavery to Freedom

Passover – From Slavery to Freedom by Daniel Greenfield – March 30, 2021 As the first days of another Passover conclude with the echoes of “Once we were slaves and now we are free” and “Next year in Jerusalem” recited at the Seder nights ringing in our ears, we know that freedom is a lot more than being able to board a plane and fly off to Jerusalem. Slavery did not end with the fall of Pharaoh. Since then we have become slaves again, lived under the rule of iron-fisted tyrants and forgotten what the very idea of freedom means. And that will likely…
