Federalist 62. Madison reminds us that the election of U.S. Senators by their respective state legislatures secured state rights or authority. In your opinion, how might a return to this vital constitutional principle become a key element in empowering a push back against federal intrusion into powers our heaven inspired Constitution clearly retained as jurisdictionally belonging to state & local governments, to families & individuals, to private businesses, churches, & charities?

The Embarrassing, Sophomoric Malice of Obama-Administration Foreign Policy

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ So, a “senior Obama administration official” called the prime minister of Israel — our closest ally in the Middle East and one of the few nations in the region that is not (a) imploding or (b) actively funding or supporting terrorists — “a chickenshit.” While that [...]

Illegal Voters May Decide Fate of Senate

Illegal Voters May Decide Fate of Senate

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Control of the U.S. Senate is up for grabs on November 4, and illegal voters may tip the balance.

Making It Easy to Predict the Next Financial Crisis

Making It Easy to Predict the Next Financial Crisis

BY ALAN CARUBA It is a cliché, but true, that history repeats itself. This is largely due to the failure of each new generation to learn anything from the past as well as the human tendency toward the bad habits of greed and power-seeking. Only the names and faces change. That is why the [...]

Obama’s Amnesty Travesty

Obama’s Amnesty Travesty

BY ALAN CARUBA People really need to read the U.S. Constitution. It says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” The Constitution makes no reference whatever to executive orders (EO). George Washington started the practice mostly [...]

God and Washington

God and Washington

THEY WERE BELIEVERS WITH STEVE FARRELL George Washington, perhaps more than any other Founder, saw the hand of God everywhere. It never fails.

Great Pillars of American Liberty

John Adams: Party of One—Man of God

LIBERTY LETTERS WITH STEVE FARRELL Editor's Note: This book review was previously published in 2005 at NewsMax.com and elsewhere on the Net. It wasn't too many months ago when David McCullough won a Pulitzer for his biography on John Adams. And so maybe it wasn't the best of timing that on [...]

Is America in Decline?

Is America in Decline?

BY ALAN CARUBA In case you have had the feeling that America is in decline and will make way for a new superpower, you may be right. At least you’re right if you agree with James MacDonald, the author of “When Globalization Fails: The Rise and Fall of Pax Americana” (due in January 2015, [...]

Nevada Cracks Down on Uber

Nevada Cracks Down on Uber

Condoms In Middle School?

Condoms In Middle School?

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Last summer, a school district in Oregon announced that it would provide condoms to middle schoolers as young as age 11. The superintendent said this was necessary because, every few years, a middle school student either became pregnant or fathered a child. In New York last [...]

The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand

The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand

BY SELWYN DUKE There is one particular thing that illustrates better than anything else the unreasonableness — and some would say gall — of homosexuality activists. It’s not demanding that bakers, shirt printers and wedding planners be party to events and expression deeply contrary to [...]

Passionate About Conservatism

BY ALAN CARUBA We conservatives tend to be rather low key when it comes to expressing our commitment to conservative values. We are all about the Constitution, small government, a strong military, and fiscal prudence, but these are not things that are easy to talk about in a passionate way, no [...]

Abortion Harms the Whole Family

Abortion Harms the Whole Family

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY In the world of feminism, abortion is sacred. The National Organization for Women has passed resolution after resolution claiming that abortion is a fundamental human right. That’s a bold claim if you look at the history of abortion laws in our country, as I do in my new [...]
