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.

What Has Happened to Protests in America?

What Has Happened to Protests in America?

BY ALAN CARUBA The U.S. began with protests that evolved into a full scale rebellion we call the Revolution. Throughout our history, there have been many protests and those against slavery evolved into the Civil War. War—whether for or against it—has been a prime generator of protests. On the evenings of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday [...]

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

BY SELWYN DUKE Western civilization lied and people died. It lied, that is, to itself. I am referring to Iraq, but not to the hapless George W. Bush and the claim of WMDs’ existence, which wasn’t a lie at all. What is at issue here is more fundamental. It’s a lie that imbues Bushes, Clintons and Obamas, both the left and the right [...]

Benedict Obama’s Invasion of America

Benedict Obama’s Invasion of America

BY SELWYN DUKE If millions of soldiers from south of the border were flooding our nation for the purposes of colonizing our land, we would easily recognize the threat. And if some amongst us were aiding and abetting this invasion — purposely lowering border security to facilitate it — we’d know what to call them. And we’d know how they [...]

A Special Documentary: “The History Of The Eagles”

A Special Documentary: “The History Of The Eagles”

BY MARK W. HENDRICKSON “The History of The Eagles,” a three-hour documentary about the American band of the 1970s, was released on DVD a year ago. I finally saw it on Showtime last week. It is, in a word, superb. Given the enduring popularity of The Eagles (who hold the distinction of having the best-selling album of the 20th [...]

Unreasonable People

Unreasonable People

BY T.F. STERN I put off writing about the sale of my rent house to accommodate the actual closing, that part of the sale when the buyer and seller sit down together, sign off on a stack of papers and everyone walks away happy.  Well, it didn’t happen, at least not today and not with the folks who claimed they wanted to buy the house. I [...]

The Worst Week for Abortion

The Worst Week for Abortion

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Oh, how the tide has turned against abortion. There were three stunning setbacks to the pro-abortion movement in just one week this year. The first came during oral argument in the Hobby Lobby case before the U.S. Supreme Court. The left wing of the Court was having a field day by predicting a parade of horribles if Hobby [...]

No Women’s Museum on the Mall

No Women’s Museum on the Mall

LIBERTY ALERTS, EAGLE FORUM This week, the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 863, which would set up a commission to study the creation of a National Women's History Museum. Long sought by feminists, this project would enshrine their warped view of American history on the National Mall. Among the feminists the museum plans to laud are [...]

Truth in The Triple Package

Truth in The Triple Package

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Amy Chua, who’s known for her famous book called Tiger Mother, recently published another book called The Triple Package with her husband. Chua’s new book sets out to explain why they believe that certain cultural groups do better in America than others. They have higher incomes, higher test scores, and better jobs. Amy [...]

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? Why do laws regulating other surgical procedures not protect women when they get an abortion? Why does “unborn human life” have legal status in tort, criminal, and [...]

Vladimir Putin Caesar and Our Great Geo-political Turning Point

Vladimir Putin Caesar and Our Great Geo-political Turning Point

BY SELWYN DUKE We are witnessing, I believe, a turning point in geopolitical history, one future historians may analyze as we have the Roman Empire’s fall. Vladimir Putin is making a move — and it’s not just against Ukraine. It may not be just a move against Eastern Europe. It’s not even, perhaps, just a move against US world [...]
