Do Liberals Like Thomas Jefferson When He Said This?

Liberals have a few political patron saints, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy, to name just four. Some might say Barack Obama, but his halo is beginning to tarnish. He’s still in the running. It’s hard for liberals to reject a political messiah that they

Bryan Cranston’s ‘LBJ’ Steals ‘Godfather Politics’ Tag Line

I’m minding my own business, watching segments of the Breaking Bad Marathon on AMC while taking notes for several writing projects, and all of a sudden I hear something familiar. It’s Bryan Cranston plugging his new Broadway play “All the Way”1 where he plays President Lyndon Bains Johnson. Cranston has

Why Firing Phil Robertson Is Not a Censorship or First Amendment Issue

There’s a great deal of misinformation going around concerning A&E’s reaction to Phil Robertson’s comments about same-sex sex. Even Sarah Palin (“Free speech is an endangered species”) and Gov. Bobby Jindal (“I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment”) have gotten it wrong. Even Mark Levin is wrong

Let the ACLU Have Its Pro-Abortion License Plate

I’m not a big fan of “cause” license plates. I doubt that they do much good. One of the big “cause” license plates is “Choose Life.” I applaud the efforts of those who worked hard to get the plates approved, but the message is too ambiguous for me. At every

Student Obeys God Rather Than Men in Graduation Speech

I love it when someone stands up for the truth when the whole world is watching and powerful sinister groups want to shut him down. Valedictorian Roy Costner IV of Liberty High School — note the name — tore up his “pre-approved speech,” dismissed legal threats from the ACLU and

Those in the Media Should be Required to Undergo Background Checks

Melissa Harris-Perry is the gift that keeps on giving. She wants background checks on every person who wants to purchase a firearm. I’m calling on Congress to call for a similar requirement for anyone in the media. What’s sauce for the Second Amendment goose, is sauce for the First Amendment

Law Professor Uses First Amendment to Dump on the Constitution

The New York Times, the paper of record with “all the news that’s fit to print”1 (except when it’s favorable to conservatives), has published an article by Louis Michael Seidman, a professor of constitutional law at Georgetown University and the author of the forthcoming book On Constitutional Disobedience. The Constitution

Atheists Want to Deny Congressmen First Amendment Rights

The American Humanist Association (AHA) is on the religious warpath again. AHA executive director Roy Speckhardt is using Soviet- and Nazi-style tactics against elected officials who want to exercise their First Amendment rights to pray. In fact, even if we did not have a First Amendment, elected officials and everyone else

Should Questioning and Challenging the President be Illegal?

Chris Matthews of MSNBC made a statement about how President Obama should have been treated by presidential challenger Mitt Romney in their second debate. It was the fact that Gov. Romney actually challenged the President that led Matthews to go Gestapo on him: “I don’t think he understands the Constitution

The Right and Duty to Change the Government

The First Amendment to the Constitution states as clearly as it can that the people have the right to “petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Wrapped up in this Constitutional right are additional rights regarding speech, press, and assembly. It’s a package deal. We can petition in several

Atheists Demand Massachusetts High School Revise its State’s History

The atheist organization The Freedom From Religion Foundation is demanding that the Wayland High School band “stop playing ‘God Bless America’ at school functions because it violates separation of church and state.” The Massachusetts’ school officials are ignoring the group’s threats, and for good reason. First, the First Amendment prohibits

Should Gun Purchases Require a “Co-Signer” to Prove Sanity?

John Kelly, a columnist for the Washington Post, is advocating that all gun purchases be co-signed as testimony that the new gun owner is not a “nut job.” I’m all for it. That way, no liberal would ever be able to buy a gun. Who will get to determine who’s

Don’t Know Much About the First Amendment

I was not surprised when it was reported that more people are familiar with pop culture than the Constitution. The article states that “only one in four Americans can name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. But more than half can name at least

Michelle Obama Encourages Pastors to Break the Law

Where’s the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State when Liberal Democrats politic in Churches? If the wife of a conservative candidate went into churches to ask the people to vote for her husband, groups like the ACLU and Americans United would be sending threatening letters that

IRS Lies to Churches about Political Activities

Pastors meeting in Washington were warned by officials from the Internal Revenue Service that there are some political activities that could jeopardize their churches’ tax-exempt status. IRS regional manager Peter Lorenzetti told the Faith Leaders Summit that that pastors in their official capacity are not permitted to endorse or oppose

What the First Amendment Really Says about Religion

Many people incorrectly maintain that the First Amendment was designed to remove any and all religious precepts and considerations from civil affairs. An example of this misinterpretation can be found in the Congressional Quarterly’s Guide to the U.S. Supreme Court: The two men most responsible for its inclusion in the

News Service Associated Press is the Mouthpiece for Obama Administration

Our founders wanted a free press. It was a gutsy move on the part of men who would one day hold public office. They would be open to criticism and there would be nothing they could do about it. I’ve heard a story that the first person marching in a

Are Millions of Christians Contributing to the Totalitarian State By Not Getting Involved Politically?

Christians would be a large voting-block if a majority of them voted and voted consistently. Unfortunately, too many Christians are under the false belief that whatever the government is doing, they must support it because it is “ordained by God.” Here is an email I received from one such confused
