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.

The Obama Administration’s Slow-Motion Surrender to Jihad

The Obama Administration’s Slow-Motion Surrender to Jihad

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ If there’s one political silver lining for the Obama administration in the ongoing firestorm over handing the Taliban a substantial victory to retrieve a probable American deserter, it’s that the pundit class has been all but ignoring the supreme foolishness of administration policy in Palestine. Is the State Department [...]

Americans the Obama Administration Will Leave Behind

Americans the Obama Administration Will Leave Behind

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ It sickens me that the Obama administration has been justifying ransoming terrorist leaders for a probable deserter by reciting the creed that America never leaves a man behind. The Obama administration frequently leaves men (and even children) to suffer and die, with minimal apparent effort on their behalf. A partial [...]

The VA’s Disgrace and Bureaucracies’ Inevitable Failure

The VA’s Disgrace and Bureaucracies’ Inevitable Failure

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ So the VA is getting tough now. After revelations in state after state that the VA has essentially cooked its books to hide scheduling delays that could have been fatal to a number of veterans, VA leadership is cracking down by . . . placing a handful of employees on administrative leave. As we say in the South, [...]

The Legal Significance of Labeling Pro-Life Speech ‘Torture’

The Legal Significance of Labeling Pro-Life Speech ‘Torture’

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Kathryn Lopez has been covering the ongoing effort by radical pro-abortion NGOs to apply the U.N. Convention against Torture to the Catholic Church for — among other things — its international pro-life advocacy. The argument is so facially irrational that one would be tempted to dismiss it out of hand. Not even the [...]

Manufacturing Scientific Consensus—In Four Easy Steps!

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Among the many virtues of aggressive litigation — in addition, of course, to the fundamental goal of obtaining justice for your clients — is the ability to gain knowledge. Through sworn testimony, compelled document disclosures, and other features of the discovery process, one can learn about institutions and attitudes at [...]

On the Verge of Victory: Is the Obama Administration Backing Down From Handing Over the Internet?

On the Verge of Victory: Is the Obama Administration Backing Down From Handing Over the Internet?

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ This morning’s Wall Street Journal has this encouraging report: Less than a month after announcing its plan to abandon U.S. protection of the open Internet in 2015, the White House has stepped back from the abyss. Following objections by Bill Clinton, a warning letter from 35 Republican senators, and critical congressional [...]

Victory Update: Conservative Christian Professor Awarded Promotion, Back Pay

Victory Update: Conservative Christian Professor Awarded Promotion, Back Pay

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Late last month a federal jury in North Carolina found that the University of North Carolina-Wilmington retaliated against conservative Christian professor Mike Adams when the university denied him a promotion to full professor. Rather than evaluating his work on the merits, the university denied his promotion in a process that [...]

The Radical Left’s High-Stakes Gamble on Intolerance

The Radical Left’s High-Stakes Gamble on Intolerance

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Not for the first time, the radical Left is moving rapidly away from any respect for free speech and pluralism and is decisively throwing itself into creating a self-righteous culture of intolerance and intimidation. It’s playing a dangerous game, one that is already alienating its own allies. I don’t often type this, [...]

Another Victory for Religious Liberty: Freedom for Christian Employers

Another Victory for Religious Liberty: Freedom for Christian Employers

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ On the heels of last month’s jury verdict for a Christian professor punished by his employer for his conservative and Christian speech, the ACLJ team is pleased to report yet another victory for religious liberty. A former employee sued her Christian employer, a national campus ministry, claiming that its religious criteria [...]

So, the U.N. Wants Control of the Internet

So, the U.N. Wants Control of the Internet

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ This morning the ACLJ launched a fast-growing petition (23,000 signatures in the first six hours) protesting the Obama Administration’s decision to hand over critical technical functions of the Internet to a “multinational body.” We’re calling on the President to reverse course or – failing that – Congress to take [...]
