S.E.M., Vol. 1, No. 7
Federalist 69 - by Alexander Hamilton. 1. What are the chief characters in regards to the President as outlined in the proposed Constitution? 2. Why does Hamilton believe the term of office for a President should be longer than three years? 3. What was the term of office for the king of England and what, in your opinion, is the potential for abuse in such a term? Would the term of office of the king of England present any advantages - in the Founders experience and in your opinion - over over the new American system?

A Giant Step Towards Declaring American Soldiers War Criminals

A Giant Step Towards Declaring American Soldiers War Criminals

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Yesterday, the International Criminal Court “welcomed” Palestine as a “State Party” to the Rome Statute, the international treaty governing the ICC. Most of the coverage focused on the implications for Israel, as the PA has declared its intentions to file complaints against Israel for its conduct in the 2014 Gaza [...]

Bowe Bergdahl and Our Leaders’ Lost Honor

Bowe Bergdahl and Our Leaders’ Lost Honor

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Desertion is a very old story in the history of armies and armed conflict. Soldiers deserted from the Continental Army, from the Union Army, from the American armies in World War I and World War II — yet those armies fought on, fought well, and prevailed. An army can survive desertion, so to hear that Bowe Bergdahl has been [...]

Here’s One Way to Reach Scientific Consensus

Here’s One Way to Reach Scientific Consensus

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Earlier this week, I posted about Dr. James Enstrom’s successful settlement of his lawsuit against UCLA. Long a dissenter against environmentalist scare-mongering, Dr. Enstrom sued UCLA officials (full disclosure: my colleagues and I at ACLJ represented him) after they fired him shortly after Dr. Enstrom discovered that new [...]

Once Again Obama Tries to Limit Next President

Once Again Obama Tries to Limit Next President

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ We’ve seen this movie before. With the Obama administration, a familiar pattern is emerging. Trusting his own wisdom, President Obama resists oversight, goes to legal war against leakers and whistleblowers (at least those who make it look bad), and launches or proposes military offensives against sovereign nations [...]

Apologizing for Other People’s Actions

Apologizing for Other People’s Actions

The Moral 'High Horse' DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ There are few moral fashions more tiresome than the largely liberal tendency to “apologize” for the actions of others — whether it’s America’s past sins, the sins of Medieval Christianity, or the actions of your contemporary political opponents. In the Evangelical world, more liberal [...]

No, It’s Not ‘Childish’ to Insist

No, It’s Not ‘Childish’ to Insist

On a Reporting Requirement for Late-Term Abortions DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ It is extraordinarily disappointing to see Representative Renee Ellmers slamming pro-life groups as “childish” for insisting on a rape-reporting requirement in the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Both the reporting requirement itself and the angry response to [...]

American Sniper & the Left’s Culture-War

American Sniper & the Left’s Culture-War

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ American Sniper isn’t just a hit, it’s on its way to a colossal box-office return. It’s already the tenth-highest grossing movie of 2014 (the movie opened in select theaters at Christmas) and is well on its way to the top three — this despite a furious backlash from the Left, with rhetoric that routinely borders on [...]

When Barbarism Is Propaganda

When Barbarism Is Propaganda

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ The civilized world is confronting a movement that defines “victory” as the slaughter of unarmed cartoonists at work at their desks. Even worse, that movement knows that its barbarism — the very conduct that revolts us — is perhaps the jihadists’ most effective recruiting tool. Jihadist snuff films are rampant in [...]

Academic Boycotters of Israel Can’t Hide Unlawful Discrimination

Academic Boycotters of Israel Can’t Hide Unlawful Discrimination

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Yesterday, the University of California’s student-worker union (UAW Local 2865)voted on whether to join the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. While we don’t yet know the results of the vote, we do know that its supporters have been making deceptive legal arguments in support of a motion [...]

Are Obama’s Executive Orders Permanent?

Are Obama’s Executive Orders Permanent?

No, Neither Obamacare Nor President Obama’s Immigration Actions Are Inevitably Permanent DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Over the past six years, I’ve encountered quite a bit of conservative despair over the notion that President Obama’s signature domestic initiatives — Obamacare and, now, his apparently mass-scale immigration action — are [...]
