    This simple but powerfully symbolic Cross is in the Mojave Desert. It's been there for 75 years. That is, until some guy from Oregon decided that he didn't like it there since it's on Federal land. That person called the ACLU. The ACLU has managed to legally cover the Cross. The Veterans want it back - out in the open. Watch the Video here. Fortunately, there's a great Legal Team on the side of the Vets. We can only hope for the best.

    1. There is a website. Called Change.gov. I could stop right there. That’s creepy because a transition team’s website called, oh, for example “44thPresident.gov” is not sufficiently impressive. Here’s what’s really creepy about it, though. Don’t think of the word “change” there as a noun, or a verb, but as a command. Think of it as a command with the suffix .gov behind it. That gives me the willies right there. 2. It’s called Change.gov (part 2). Oh, and it’s a little juvenile to name an official United States government website after your campaign slogan (which was also Bill Clinton’s...

    Church-State Watchdog Group Says Board's Preference For Christianity Flouts First Amendment Of The Constitution Americans United for Separation of Church and State today filed a lawsuit in federal district court against a town council in New York that opens its public sessions with Christian prayer. Americans United sued the Greece, N.Y., Town Board and its supervisor, John Auberger, on behalf of two local residents who object to government-sponsored religious activities that favor one faith over others. The lawsuit alleges that almost all of the board’s opening prayers are explicitly Christian, and that since 2004, only a single non-Christian has been...

    The ACLU and three other organizations have filed lawsuits against the sheriff's department in Otero County, N.M., for violating the civil rights of Latinos during immigration sweeps in September. They claim the officers raided homes without search warrants and interrogated families without evidence of criminal activity. "Otero County sheriffs broke a basic bond of trust with the community" in the town of Chaparral, ACLU Executive Director Peter Simonson told Cybercast News Service on Thursday. "We need to restore policing to its proper mission so citizens and immigrants alike can trust that someone is watching out for their safety." "The enforcement...

    A constitutional attorney says instead of thanking American veterans for their service, the American Civil Liberties Union is "dishonoring" them by attacking their memorials across the United States. The American Legion has announced that it is teaming up with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) and Liberty Legal Institute in a campaign to fight ACLU efforts to remove religious symbols from war memorials. The ACLU has already filed suit to remove crosses at veterans' memorials, like the Mt. Soledad cross in San Diego and the Sunrise Rock cross in the Mojave Desert, which is now covered by a box.

    Washington Post Scalia, during a panel Saturday on the judiciary sponsored by the National Italian American Foundation, dismissed the idea of judicial independence as an absolute virtue. He noted that dozens of states, since the mid-1800s, have chosen to let citizens elect their judges. "You talk about independence as though it is unquestionably and unqualifiably a good thing," Scalia said. "It may not be. It depends on what your courts are doing." He added, "The more your courts become policymakers, the less sense it makes to have them entirely independent." Absolutely! The more the courts step outside of their bounds...

    I have heard the over exaggerated claims from liberals that they fear the Religious Right turning America into a Christian theocracy. They are devout disciples of the concept of “separation of church and state”. They are thankful for the ACLU keeping America from sliding down a slippery slope into the dreaded state of a Christian theocracy. Of course these fears are not based in reality. While most Christians want to share their faith with others and hope to convert people, the modern practice of Christianity does not seek to force their religion on anyone. Inviting someone to church, or expressing...

Is the ACLU worth saving? Not in its current form. It should be obvious to any intellectually honest person that the ACLU has a left wing agenda that bypasses any claimed mission statement of unbiased protection of civil liberties. They protect the civil liberties of abortion supporters, but have a completely different set of standards when it comes to anti-abortion protesters. They are falling...

    In 2005, a federal district court in Chicago sided with the ACLU and ruled that the military’s support for the National Scout Jamboree - held once every four years at Fort A.P. Hill in Fredericksburg, Virginia - unconstitutional. The case is Winkler v. Rumsfeld, No. 05-3451 (7th Cir.). The ACLU’s claim is that the Scout Oath’s “duty to God” makes the Boy Scouts a religious organization, like a church, and that military support for the Jamboree violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. If the ruling stands, the military may not lend equipment or provide logistical support to the...

    NASHVILLE — The American Civil Liberties Union will likely appeal a recent ruling by a federal appeals court, which allows Tennessee to offer anti-abortion license plates bearing the message "Choose Life." A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati earlier this month overturned a lower-court ruling that said the tag illegally promoted only one side of the abortion debate. The ACLU and other plaintiffs have until Friday to file an appeal for a hearing before the 6th Circuit, according to Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee. They would have another week to...

    The fear of lawsuits from the American Civil Liberties Union has driven 216 Boy Scout, Cub Scout and related troops across the state - including 35 in North Jersey - to sever their charters with public institutions. Many of them, including Troop 124 in Northvale, have enjoyed a long friendship with municipalities that have sponsored the Scouts, provided them with funding and offered a comfortable meeting space. But an ACLU threat has sent troops scrambling for new sponsors. The Boy Scouts of America issued a directive last April for all troops to transfer their sponsorship by the end of the...

    According to their own literature, the American Civil Liberties Union's job "is to conserve America's original civic values – the Constitution and the Bill of Rights." Preserving our values is a very admirable goal. But in spite of their lofty rhetoric, the ACLU is not such a protector of America's values. To the contrary, no organization, together with its allies, has consistently done more harm to our traditions and values. Just in the past few weeks, the ACLU has again proven their contempt for American values in several arenas. In September, the ACLU filed a friend-of-the-court brief urging the Supreme...

The ACLU has written Anderson and Seneca city councils and Oconee County Council asking them to follow a federal court ruling. The Fourth US Circuit Court of Appeals last year upheld a lower court ruling that prayers before Great Falls Town Council were unconstitutional because they honored one faith over another by mentioning Jesus. The US Supreme Court refused to consider the town's appeal. Mike Cubelo of the ACLU says the organization will sue if necessary.

    It's tough to be a parent. In fact, raising your child these days to develop into a healthy, happy, responsible adult has never been harder. Violence and sex saturates television and movies, popular music is filled with profanity and rage – even video games often focus on the darkest edges of human behavior. It is bad enough that the culture seems at war with parents. But more disturbing are the actions of courts to damage the link between parent and child. And no group has done more to inflict damage on parental rights though the courts than the American Civil...

    ATLANTA - Five Cobb County residents and the ACLU are suing Cobb County for overly sectarian prayers at county commission meetings. The lawsuit, filed by the ACLU Wednesday in federal court in Atlanta, claims the prayers before commission meetings are too Christian. One prayer ended, "in the name of Jesus our savior," and dozens more since 2003 mentioned Jesus, according to the lawsuit. The ACLU does not challenge the commission's right to pray before meetings, just that the prayers are overly Christian, offending the five plaintiffs. The lawsuit seeks unspecified "nominal damages" and a court order for Cobb to stop...

    While growing up I was a proud member of an organization that emphasized the importance of honesty and "being clean in thought, word and deed." We vowed to serve God and our country. If you think that this organization's philosophy is non-controversial, you are sadly mistaken. We live in an era of Political Correctness. The beliefs and values that our society broadly embraced when I was a member of Boy Scout Troop 77, chartered by Holy Trinity Catholic Church of Racine, Wisconsin, are now endangered.Unfortunately, our federal courts often make decisions that assault our country's most cherished beliefs and values....

    On Sunday, President Bush addressed a Jamboree of more than 30,000 Boy Scouts in Virginia. He stated, "through the generations, scouts have made America a stronger and better nation." Those critical of the Boy Scouts of America argue that the Boy Scouts' exclusion of gays, atheists and females makes America more divided and divisive. One side wishes to strengthen the Boy Scouts; the other wishes to destroy the Boy Scouts by forcing politically correct changes upon it. Over the past two decades, the Boy Scouts has been both a flash point and the ground of sustained struggle between traditional and...

    This just in--Curtis DeVeaux, a Philadelphia fireman, is refusing to shave his beard in spite of regulations requiring him to do so for his own safety and the safety of other firefighters (breathing apparatus will not fit and seal properly over beards). Mr. DeVeaux claims that his muslim faith requires the beard (although he has been clean-shaven during his first two years of service in the fire department and agreed to follow the department regulations when he was hired.) Seems pretty simple...

    "For God And Country Forever Surrender To The ACLU Never" I had the benefit of getting an interview with Mr. Reese Lloyd, a former ACLU lawyer affiliated with the largest Veterans Organization in America, the American Legions. When I called the media relations department there and inquired about their support for Public Expression of Religion Act of 2005 , this is the man they reffered me to. I soon found out why. This was a very passionate, wise, and well spoken man. I first inquired of his history with the ACLU, how he became employed with them, and why he...

    Written for Stop The ACLU And Crossposted from there. For the past week we have been voicing our support for HR 2679, the Public Expression of Religion Act (PERA) of 2005. And this is a case that would potentially be effected by it should it already be law. In San Diego, California, there has been a fight over a cross put upon Mount Soledad. Decades ago, private citizens placed the cross on that site to honor Korean War veterans. In 2004, President Bush signed legislation designating the site a 'National War Memorial'. Now, an atheist who travels the road overlooked...

    It seems the ACLU are by no means finished with their dirt-digging exercise at the expense of the FBI:A series of FBI inquiries across the country shows that the agency has sunk back into the kind of political monitoring it did in the 1960s and 1970s, says the American Civil Liberties Union. Ah, yes. The 1960s and 70s; that notorious period in which sinister government agencies cracked down so hard on civil liberties that the left were barely able to come up with the anti-Vietnam movement, radical feminism, Roe vs. Wade, gay rights, hippies, freely-available porn, and -- Oh. Wait....

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend! As you enjoy this time off with your family, make sure to pray for the troops! Do something to honor the vets. Don't forget if you see a vet in a bar this weekend, buy him a beer! They at least deserve that as well as our thanks for protecting our great country. Now, as you remember the fallen, just keep in mind as you enjoy your barbeque, pic-nic, or whatever you and your family will be doing that the ACLU is ever vigilant. Think about this: While the ACLU attacks the Boyscouts for having the...

    As if the ACLU continued defense of American criminals and degenerates is not enough the ACLU has now taken their unholy cause to the very terrorists that have swore to kill or convert every man, women, and child in the United States. The ACLU has now “uncovered” more evidence of torture and mistreatment at the hands of United States Military interrogators. In a press release the ACLU blows their own trumpet on their “success” at uncovering “abuses”. Funny thing, the newest document that the ACLU is using as evidence is over 2 years old, has been investigated by the Military...

    "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."-Voltaire The right to express unpopular opinions, advocate despised ideas(NAMBLA) and display graphic images is something the ACLU has steadfastly defended for all of its history. Exception: in the case for pro-lifers. The ACLU's Reproductive Rights Project has a lot to do with why the ACLU is so reluctant to defend the rights of anti-abortion protesters. "With a $2 million dollar budget and a staff of 17 employees, Janet Benshoof was the Union's most devoted activist for abortion rights.....she became so overextended in...
