BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY After a court struck down Indiana’s Right to Work law, unions had every reason to think they would win again in the Indiana Supreme Court. Instead, in a stunning 5-0 decision, the Indiana Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s Right to Work law, and reversed the trial court [...]

U.S. Courts of Law – Sharia Courts?

BY T.F. STERN There’s a news item on the internet about Sharia courts being used in Texas.  It would appear that what’s good for the goose isn’t necessarily good for the gander; or something like that.  Having read the article it would appear these ‘Sharia’ courts are well within the [...]

My Problem with Sarah Palin

BY SELWYN DUKE With Sarah Palin once again hinting at a presidential run, pundits and politics wonks are all the more aflutter with 2016 talk. The predictable slings and arrows of the surly left are coming her way, while her excited fans are firing up the troops. Then there are those who say [...]

Feminist War on Words

Legislatures Should Curb Judicial Supremacy Over Marriage

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY It’s Roe v. Wade all over again, as the Supreme Court is poised to invent a new right to same-sex marriage found nowhere in the four corners of the Constitution. Fortunately, the Founders gave us checks and balances against this overreaching in power. The Framers [...]

  • Call Senate NOW – don’t fund illegal amnesty!

    eagle_forumACTION ALERT, EAGLE FORUM

    Next week, the Senate is expected to vote on funding the Department of Homeland Security. It will consider the bill passed by the House of Representatives that funds the department while defunding President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty and winding down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The Senate must follow the House’s lead.

    Democrats in the Senate signed a letter to Republican Leader Mitch McConnell asking him to only consider a “clean” DHS bill, meaning they want to remove the provisions defunding amnesty. In order for the Senate to take up a bill, they first vote on the “Motion to Proceed” to the bill. It is ...

  • Common Core: An Uneven Playing Field

    EDUCATION REPORTER, EAGLE FORUM

    Common CoreMany parents, teachers, legislators and citizens are fighting against the Common Core juggernaut. Some are becoming disillusioned and fear they might never overcome the well-planned and well-financed takeover of American education that was orchestrated by those who would eliminate local control and institute a one-size-fits-all federal education system.

    Arne Duncan, Bill Gates, Pearson Education, and hundreds of education systems who have and will continue to gain financially from the restructuring of American education are formidable enemies for parents and a few legislators to fight.

    In some states, legislators and other leaders are on the side of students and parents. In others, parents worked as hard as possible to institute ...

    After a court struck down Indiana’s Right to Work law, unions had every reason to think they would win again in the Indiana Supreme Court. Instead, in a stunning 5-0 decision, the Indiana Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s Right to Work law, and reversed the trial court decision. The president of Operating Engineers Local 150 vowed to appeal the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the U.S. Supreme Court is not the final arbiter of the meaning of the Indiana Constitution. The Indiana Supreme Court is – and it resoundingly held in favor of the Right to Work law, which passed in 2012 in spite of intense opposition ...

    LIBERTY ALERTS, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA

    goa feature 2It’s a problem as fresh as today’s headlines.

    A Pennsylvania woman with a concealed carry license drives over the New Jersey line with a gun in her car.  In a routine traffic stop, she is arrested and charged for violating New Jersey’s unconstitutional gun laws. Only a national campaign saves her from a decade in prison.

    And that’s just the point:  In an era where states like New York and California use draconian and labyrinthine gun laws in order to try to outlaw guns by fiat, a legal gun owner shouldn’t risk a life behind bars because he or she drives across a state line into ...

  • Make Lemonade From Wiccan Complaints

    Liberty Counsel LogoLIBERTY ALERTS, LIBERTY COUNSEL

    Washington, DC – Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief today and asked the Supreme Court to overturn the so-called “Lemon” test in its decision on Felix v. Bloomfield.

    “Since 1971, the Lemon test has allowed mere offended observers to overturn years of religious tradition,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. In the case currently before the Supreme Court, two Wiccans were offended over a Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the Bloomfield, New Mexico, municipal building.

    “The Lemon test has meant that the Establishment Clause, designed to prevent federal establishments of religion, has morphed into a weapon aimed at eliminating all vestiges of public ...
