Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Climate Science a Fraud, Not A Mistake

Climate Science a Fraud, Not A Mistake

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY A new book called The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science makes the case that climate change is a fraud. The global warming movement has been designed to justify more government controls, enrich its proponents, and radically change society.

The Inside Story of Roe v. Wade

The Inside Story of Roe v. Wade

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY How did America become one of only four nations (along with Canada, China, and North Korea) that allow abortions for any reason, at any time during pregnancy?

Happily Never After

SARAH SKWIRE, THE FREEMAN Francis Spufford’s Red Plenty has been ably reviewed in these pages before. But it’s a book I can’t stop talking about and recommending. And when I do recommend Red Plenty to others, I’m never quite sure what to call it. The back of the book describes it as “history . . . fiction . . . as different from [...]

The Remarkable Ronald Reagan

The Remarkable Ronald Reagan

BY PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY I suggest that parents who have children in public school look at their textbooks and check the index for the name Ronald Reagan. You might be surprised at the unfavorable way Reagan is treated in school textbooks. A good way to counteract anti-Reagan propaganda is a new book written especially for children by Susan Allen, [...]

Handbook for Surviving Obamacare – Schlafly

BY PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY Dr. Betsy McCaughey, former Lieutenant Governor of New York State, is the only person I actually know who read the 1,000 pages of the ObamaCare law. I interviewed her recently on my Saturday Eagle Forum Live program, and she was most interesting. Despite the fact that half of all Americans do not want ObamaCare, it is the [...]

The World Until Yesterday, by Jared Diamond

The World Until Yesterday, by Jared Diamond

BY CARL L. BANKSTON III Jared Diamond’s last two books aimed at accounting for the rise and fall of civilizations. Guns, Germs, and Steel offered a geographic and environmental theory of why complex societies arose in some parts of the world and not others and why Europe eventually dominated the globe. Collapse traced the fall of defunct [...]

Book Review: “Recall Abortion” by Janet Morana

BOOK REVIEW, PRIESTS FOR LIFE Americans are savvy consumers. When a product does not live up to its promise, we boycott, we sue and finally, we demand a government recall.

Bankston—Jonathan Israel’s, “Radical Enlightenment”

Philosophy and the Making of Modernity, 1650-1750 BY CARL L. BANKSTON III By the end of the European middle ages, a Christianized version of Aristotelian philosophy had achieved the status of the official interpretation of the world and of the place of human beings in the world.  According to Aristotelian scholasticism, things are made up [...]
