    Best of Cain ^ | Tuesday May 6th, 2014 | Michael Johnson
    Parents in Gilford New Hampshire went to a school board meeting to get answers as to why they were not notified that their children would be reading the book "Nineteen Minutes" which details, among other things, a violent sexual encounter between teenagers. On a day when we also hear that a California school district was trying to move forward with a "lesson plan that instructed middle school students to make arguments denying the Holocaust happened," isn't this the type of parental involvement we should be encouraging? I can understand if he was being abusive or if he kept the meeting...

Heavily Armed, Militarized Federal Agencies I hope that you are aware of the standoff between heavily armed agents and contractors of the Federal Bureau of Land Management and the rancher Cliven Bundy and his family in Bunkerville, NV.

    Today I received an unsolicited DVD in the mail entitled, "Dreams from My Real Father - A story of Reds and Deception". It's from an organization called DFMRF, LLC having a Los Angeles address. This is a MUST SEE documentary of Obama's origins, his upbringing, his education, and his rise to most powerful man on earth. It's worse than you ever thought. Americans have swallowed the Communist Lie and are prepared to propel this once great nation into something like Mao Zedong's Great Leap Forward.

    When reading the "Little House" series by Laura Ingals Wilder to my children, I encountered much of what made this country a free and strong nation. Following is an excerpt from Little Town on the Prairie. I believe this excerpt is within the "legal use" limitations. It is July 4, in the 1880s and Laura, her father and her sister Carrie went into town in Desmet, Dakota Territory, for observances. A man stood up to address the crowd and read the Declaration of Independence. Here is the excerpt from Laura’s book. Laura and Carrie knew the Declaration by heart, of...

Where is the sacred honor of the people in government today? Perhaps a better question is, where is the sacred honor of the people who elected that government? Where is the regard for Divine Providence, that is, for the God of the Bible, to whom these men are clearly referring? Consider the opening verses of Chapter 13 of Paul's letter to the Roman believers. Let every soul be...

    OTTAWA, Ontario, February 28, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a recent parliamentary session on a bill relating to sexual offenses against children, psychology experts claimed that pedophilia is a “sexual orientation” comparable to homosexuality or heterosexuality, a definition that was questioned by one Member of Parliament who was present. Bill C-54, an Act to Amend the Criminal Code, seeks to increase or impose mandatory minimum penalties or punishment on sexual offenders of children for particular crimes. Parliamentary discussion on February 14 centered on the mandatory minimum imprisonment and how offenders respond to treatment. Dr. Vernon Quinsey and Dr. Hubert Van Gijseghem,...

Later, he afirmed that "In the international community, the feeling grows that agricultural subsidies, which we already know are immoral, are also illegal. The countries that retain these privileges are, in truth, producing poverty in the undeveloped countries." Later, Lula...
