    By now you should be seeing a trend in our study of the Constitution. The Articles set up the form and intent of the Federal Government along with the powers relegated to each branch. But many of the Framers believed this was inadequate for their peace of mind in ratifying this first-ever document. They believed eventually the Federal government would encroach on individual rights, as had happened throughout world history; a history they had intently studied for years before creating our constitutional republic. So in order to get on board with ratifying the Constitution, many of the signers demanded the...

    American Thinker contributor Thomas Lifson writes of the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise: Update: GOP Congressman Shot It was approximately two hours after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in Tucson, Ariz. by Jared Loughner, an insane man, that the left media began a campaign against the "climate of hate" allegedly fostered by, in particular, Sarah Palin. Remember the crosshairs on a map of districts targeted for GOP wins? With the cultural grandees of New York indulging in theatrical renditions of President Trump being bloodily stabbed, there is certainly a climate of hate now. It is time for a little reflection...
  • Government of the Lawyer, By the Lawyer and for the Lawyer

    Government of the lawyers, by the lawyers and for the lawyers was on full display at the Comey Congressional Hearing as an illustration of just how far removed our highly paid, elected officials really are from the issues which are truly interesting to we the governed. Clearly, Congress is discriminating against the employment demographics of our country! Just how many lawyers are in Congress? And more importantly, how many of them "rule" us via their committees? All I could think of, as a daughter and niece of a lawyer, judge and cousin of a law professor as I watched this...

    Article V is one of the most important parts of the Constitution, setting forth the amendment process. In the past, changes to a form of government in most countries were accomplished by revolution. The amendment process allowed for change to the Constitution in a peaceful manner. An amendment must be passed by two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate. Then it goes to the people, who must pass it through their state legislature. The process was made deliberately difficult to prevent changes without a lot of forethought, and required a great deal of deliberation by the Congress and...

    A screenshot of former President Barack Obama blatantly leering at a youngish female's buttocks is one of the visual aids in the Vatican Sex Ed program titled "The Meeting Point: Project for Affective and Sexual Formation." Released last July, 2016, in Rome at the World Youth Day celebration, the lesson plans and details of this rather unusual approach to a religion's sex education for teens have drawn outrage and even a petition for removal. Deemed inappropriate and vulgar, this controversial effort on the part of the Vatican seems to have fallen on a code of silence as the American Life...

    Reality Leigh Winner has been accused of printing classified intelligence and forwarding it to a media outlet. The Air Force veteran was an employee of Pluribus International Corporation, a defense and intelligence contractor for the U.S. government. Winner was arrested Saturday at her home in Augusta, Georgia. According to an FBI affidavit, she “admitted intentionally identifying and printing the classified intelligence reporting from her office space, retaining it, and mailing it, to The Intercept. Winner knew she was not authorized to receive or possess the documents outside of a secure facility or to share it with unauthorized people.” How she...

    Although World War I changed the world, in many ways it is the forgotten war that needs to be remembered once again in the 21st Century. One such remembrance is owed Sgt. Alvin C. York of the Upper Cumberland Valley of Tennessee. He did not want to fight in the war due to his religious convictions, but was inspired to do so by his drill sergeant who gave him a Bible and an American history book. On October 8, 1918, in less than fifteen minutes, his life would change forever. He single-handedly captured four German officers and one hundred twenty-eight...

    Hunter College will offer students an “Abolition of Whiteness” course this fall to discuss how “white supremacy and violence” influence individual identity. The course fulfills one of four graduation requirements in political science, and its instructor has requested that it be added to the list of courses that satisfy a diversity requirement. Hunter College will offer students an “Abolition of Whiteness” course this fall to discuss how “white supremacy and violence” influence individual identity. The course, taught by Women and Gender Studies Professor Jennifer Gaboury, is cross-listed for both her department and the Political Science Department, where it fulfills one...

    Good Grief. To what extent will government overreach its authority? The new imprimaturs of a central Florida utility have become scary indeed! What right does a government entity have to prowl through the garbage of individual, innocent homeowners without a warrant? What mystery public union sector employees will "examine the contents of customers' recycling bins?" Taking the ‘Save Our Planet’ mantra to an entirely new level, an over-eager garbage pickup initiative soon plans to do the following to an estimated 22,400 waste customers who are trapped in a one size fits all city negotiated contract with a single waste collection...

    If you approach the study of our Constitution with the mental image of building a house, it’s easier to comprehend and retain what you are learning. The original four short pages that make up the seven Articles of the Constitution provide the concrete foundation and the framework. The authors were literally called the “framers” of the Constitution. The Articles are short, to the point, and critically important in understanding the foundation of our republic. Patrick Henry said, “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the...

    Does the answer to the media's witch hunt against President Trump lie in this comment from a Free Republic, “Freeper;” "Obama waited two weeks before the [Trump] inaugural to redo some areas of the White House…I am beginning to think these rooms were remodeled with the latest wiretapped/listening devices that can't be detect (sic) any sort of gadgets…It's very fishy!!!! President Trump needs to look into that remodeling matter and tear those walls apart if need be!" While at first blush the Freeper’s comment may suggest only conspiracy theory, further research signifies insight. Just before moving out of the White...

    A blogger asked if we were scared of Mexicans. The post was a YouTube video clip of The President of the California State Senate, Kevin DeLeon caught participating in a “Brown Power” event, chased and shouted down by Trump supporters. I'm not scared of Mexicans. I find them an inordinate percentage of those few I love and trust among my own circle of friends and acquaintances. I'm scared of Legislators who find it impossible to represent all the people under the greatest Constitutional Republic the world has ever seen. They use their positions for power and money (No race exclusions...

    Let us never forget those who gave their life for our freedoms. Remembering the brave men and women who gave their “last full measure of devotion” for our freedoms, requires us to take a moment on this Memorial Day to focus on the individuals behind the numbers and remember they are not just names on a wall. One of those individuals who gave everything he had for us was Marine Captain John J. McKenna IV who was killed on August 16, 2006 during an operation in Fallujah, Iraq. The story of John McKenna’s life and death is the story of...

    Did former President Obama try to co-opt media coverage of President Donald Trump's international trip by making Italy his first stop in an all-expenses paid trip around the world? Isn't this the first time that a former president traveled a route nearly parallel with that of the new President? Obama departed for Italy on Friday, one day before the People's President embarked for Saudi Arabia. The Obama private jet was encircled by six Eurofighter Fourth Wing fighter jets en route to Italy for his five day stay at the $15,000 a night Borgo Finocchieto, thirteenth century restored village, owned by...

    The Constitution was written with the intent that it must endure for ages to come and be adaptable to the various crises of human affairs. Edmund Randolph, one of the five men charged with drafting the document, observed that it was necessary to stick to basic, “essential principles only; lest the operations of government be clogged by rendering those provisions permanent and unalterable.” The Framers knew that principles of liberty remain constant throughout time, so they provided this foundation for altering future law. Let’s continue our study of the U.S. Constitution with Article I. Article I, Sec 1 basically set...

    There've been battles of the network stars, the Battle of the Bulge, battles with city hall, and many other battles - but the one that predates them all, and still goes on today, is the so-called "battle of the sexes." Men are from Mars and Women are from Oz, or Middle Earth or something, and never the twain shall meet. Except that the twain do meet, often and repeatedly, so it's best that we learn to get along. And of course to do this in today's society, men have to understand women. Women don't have to understand men because women...

    Officials in Corpus Christi, Texas just discovered that one on their Municipal Court Judges is not a United States citizen. And how was the situation handled? Well, “Judge” Young Min Burkett was placed on unpaid leave, after which “the city council [gave] her 90 days to become a citizen and keep her job.” Yep. An illegal alien has been passing judgement on the activities of actual Americans in a Texas town. But it's OK, because Corpus Christi Mayor Pro-Tem Lucy Rubio said that city officials “never asked during the qualification process to become a municipal judge whether Burkett was a...

    Our children are receiving many vaccinations that could be putting them more at risk for long term neurological development disorders than for the short term diseases of simple chicken pox and/or pertussis. "What parent would subject their child to a medical procedure knowing it could cause a life-long neurological injury in order to prevent a relatively benign illness?" asks physician Dr. David Brownstein in his most recent blog on the dangers of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) vaccination protocols. He is stepping up his appeal to concerned Americans that they contact the office of the president and their Congressional...

    The following article appeared in the dailycaller.com on May 18. Words fail me, except to say that the transgendered, psychological whack-jobs who are attempting to portray their particular perversions as somehow "normal" should be told to straighten up and save their lunacy for each other only. Ed. By Amber Randall Colleges across the country are putting tampons in men’s bathrooms in an effort to bring about “menstrual equity” in restrooms. The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Brown University and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities are just a few colleges who placed menstruation products in their male and gender neutral bathrooms, reports the...

    A dangerous, large scale outbreak of painful Lyme Disease is being predicted for this summer by a video reporter who has suggested that this animal disease might have been spread to the U.S. population as an inadvertent escape pathogen from the U.S. Plum Island Animal Research facility. Because we've had a very mild winter, "all the conditions are right for one of the biggest outbreaks of LD this summer," says video researcher David Zublick. "What if your backyard is a breeding ground for a most heinous act of bioterrorism by our own government," asks Zublick about research done at Plum...
