Without This Woman, American Might Not Have A Bill Of Rights

May 31, 2017 by


By Sen. Mike Lee ~ You didn’t log on to the internet or switch on cable television in 1788 Boston to obtain breaking news of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. You hiked to the nearest tavern or coffeehouse to pick up a copy of the latest newspaper to learn what—in those days of rudimentary communication—passed […]

Why It’s A Lousy Idea To Curtail Our Freedoms By Adding Amendments

May 4, 2014 by


By Rich Tucker ~ At the beginning of the movie Lincoln, the president is focused on amending the Constitution to bar slavery. That seems unnecessary to some. After all, he’s already issued an Emancipation Proclamation. But Abraham Lincoln takes the Constitution seriously. He wants major changes enacted through the proper amendment process, not by presidential […]

Stealthy Moves Against Freedom Of Speech

November 2, 2013 by


By Edward Cline ~ Advocates and defenders of the First Amendment and freedom of speech are strung out like the three Roman legions that were ambushed and ultimately annihilated by barbarians in the dense Teutoburg Forest in Germany in 9 A.D.  Out of a force of about 36,000 fighting men, the Romans suffered between 16,000 […]

Rights Versus ‘Rights’

February 5, 2013 by


By Edward Cline ~ I developed a dislike for Franklin D. Roosevelt in high school because he was oversold by my history teachers. He was portrayed as a kind of canonized secular saint who had saved the nation and the world from the ghastly phenomena of the Depression and the Axis. Too young to judge […]

Do We Really Have A Free Press?

July 25, 2010 by


From The Editor At Family Security Matters (FSM) By its very nature, this is a long post, and very well worth your while reading it…..TonyfromOz. AN ETHICAL PRESS? Scandals connected with the behavior of journalists who subscribed to the now-defunct “Journolist” private web forum have once again opened up the debate about what role the […]

Democrats Attack The First Amendment With The Disclose Act

June 24, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has lately taken to saying that the failure to pass the Cap-and-Trade Act would be “immoral.” I suggest that the White House the Democrat congressional leadership and members haven’t a clue when it comes to determining the morality of anything. They are so politically corrupt that they are […]

The Two Faced Brutality Of Hope And Change

April 4, 2009 by

Under the ruse of assembling as tolerant, engaged and caring members of society – activists concerned with war, the environment and the economic crisis – anti-war activists, eco-zealots, […]

April 7, 2008 by
