The Magic of Obamacare: Misdirection

Jonathan Paine I love movies about magic. Magicians are some of the best entertainers in the world, in my opinion. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen the trick, I am always willing to see it one more time. To be duped one more time. The wonder produced by magic tricks comes from what […]

History Haters

David Barton One thing that can be said about atheist and secularist legal groups is that they are dedicated, persistent—and very predictable: nothing brings them to legal action faster than finding an official mention of God. In many ways, this seems oxymoronic, for they don’t even believe God exists. For myself, I don’t believe the […]

Who’s Side Are You On?

Jonathan Paine As humans, we have a natural self-defense instinct. When we sense an attack, we naturally respond in defense. Now, any marriage counselor will tell you that this reaction needs to be tempered for a relationship to work.

As reported by Reuters, “The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism, five people briefed on the matter […]

5 Judicial Myths

David Barton Despite what we hear today . . . The Judiciary is Not a Co-Equal Branch of Government Federalist #51: “the legislative authority necessarily predominates.

The Future of America Depends on You

Rick Green 2017 has tremendous potential to be a pivot year for America. What a difference a year can make! Just 18 months ago, I was trying to keep my conservative friends from giving up and running for the hills (which even I wanted to do after those back to back dreadful days in June […]
