America's Future

Court Monitor
Regulatory State Loses on Last Day  
In a decision held until the last day of its Term, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a stunning setback to environmentalists by requiring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to consider the costs of new regulations before imposing them on the public. This decision sets a good precedent extending far beyond the facts of the case.  08-28-15
Obamacare is now 'SCOTUScare'  
For millions of Americans, their participation in Obamacare is propped up by subsidies from the federal government in the form of tax credits. This law, whose official name is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, provided for subsidies to flow to those who enroll on "an Exchange established by the State."  08-21-15
A Roe v. Wade on Marriage, by 5-4  
By a margin of only 5-4, the U.S. Supreme Court held that millennia of tradition on marriage is wrong, the vast majority of the States are wrong, and the Bible is wrong. The Court invented a new constitutional right to same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges, and thereby engaged in judicial supremacy reminiscent of Roe v. Wade. The Court demands that all 50 States, and all territories of the United States, begin performing same-sex marriages despite local laws prohibiting them.  08-05-15
Big Brother Is Watching Your Cell Phone Calls  
The full Eleventh Circuit, sitting en banc, upheld the power of government to obtain, without a search warrant, the locations of anyone's cell phone conversations. The Court declared that no American has any expectation of privacy in his whereabouts when he makes or receives a cell phone call. 07-23-15
Rare Loss for Free Speech  
Free speech claims before the U.S. Supreme Court have almost always won in recent years. An unlimited right to sell violent video games to children, for example, was established by calling it free speech. The Court also recently struck down an overall monetary limit on campaign donations, by viewing it as free speech. And the Court invalidated, on free speech grounds, a federal law that punished people who lie about having received military honors, known as "stolen valor." 07-12-15
Border Patrol Agent Wins One  
A teenager was shot and killed while entirely on Mexican soil, by a federal border patrol agent who was on the American side. The teenager's family then sued, alleging that the boy was playing a harmless game with friends near the border when he was gunned down by the federal officer. American investigators rejected that account, instead concluding that the agent was trying to arrest illegal aliens who had crossed into the United States when the agent was attacked by rocks thrown at him. 06-21-15
Setback for the Second Amendment  
The Second Amendment, which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms, has enjoyed decades of success at the state and national levels. Every state allows "concealed carry" to enable law-abiding citizens to own and carry guns, although permits are still difficult to obtain in some areas. 06-07-15
Alabama Supreme Court Rules for Dry Counties  
Two pastors from a small town in Alabama won a stunning, unanimous victory before the Alabama Supreme Court against the sale of alcohol in their tiny community. 05-25-15
California Supreme Court Orders Judges to Leave Boy Scouts  
The U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of association as a fundamental First Amendment right, but that did not stop the liberal California Supreme Court from telling judges in its court system that they cannot belong to groups disfavored by the Court. On January 23, 2015, the California Supreme Court ordered all California judges to stop belonging to the Boy Scouts. 05-11-15
"Hackney Carriage" Owners Versus Boston (and Uber)  
"Hackney carriage" is the predecessor in the horse-and-buggy era to the taxicab, and this term continues to be used in many municipal codes in Massachusetts. Hackney carriages, or taxicabs today, are fully regulated in big cities such as Boston.  04-26-15
Tour Guides Lose Free Speech Appeal  
Tour guides lead visitors in many cities to the local landmarks, teaching some history along the way. But in recent years several cities enacted laws requiring tour guides to be certified in history before they can charge the public for their tours.  04-19-15
Keystone Pipeline Wins One, For Now, in Nebraska  
The much-publicized Keystone XL pipeline project would send heavy crude oil through an enormous pipeline stretching from western Canada through the heartland of the United States, down to refineries along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. The southern portion of this pipeline has already been in operation from Oklahoma to Texas, but opponents have held up construction of its longest segment: from Alberta, Canada, to Steele City, Nebraska.  03-25-15
Court Turns the Lights Out on Intrusive Solar Cell Project  
Solar power is a favorite of liberals. When a solar power company was founded by a prominent member of the Kennedy family, that combination would seemingly be unbeatable in a judicial proceeding in Massachusetts. So ordinary townsfolk faced grim odds when they challenged a permit to build a massive solar array, by suing a solar power company founded by former Democratic Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy II.  02-28-15
Court Blocks Sheriff from Arresting Illegals  
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was courageously enforcing Arizona laws against illegal aliens who used stolen identities to gain employment. Two Arizona laws make that a felony, and the sheriff was doing his job in finding and arresting the felons.  02-23-15
Kansas Judges Demand More School Funding  
Judicial supremacy has reared its ugly ahead again, this time in Kansas. A three-judge panel of state court judges there has ruled that the Kansas legislature must pour more money down the drain of public school education.  02-07-15
Cert. Granted against Obamacare!  
For liberals, it was a double dose of bad news in the same week. First they lost big in the midterm elections, and then a few days later the U.S. Supreme Court issued a surprise grant of certiorari to consider the legality of how Obamacare is being implemented.  01-31-15
Stunning 5-0 Victory for the Right to Work  
After a trial court struck down Indiana's Right to Work law as being in violation of the Indiana Constitution, unions had every reason to think they would win again at the Indiana Supreme Court. Instead, in a stunning 5-0 decision, the Indiana Supreme Court upheld the Right to Work law, and reversed the trial court decision.  01-17-15

¡Adios, America!   
Modern American policies are often decided based on emotions, particularly that of pity. "A nation increasingly dependent on heartrending anecdotes to focus and activate its sense of justice is one that's losing the capacity for moral and abstract reasoning," according to William Voegeli.  08-27-15
The Pity Party

Crimes of the Educators   
This important deconstruction and explanation of everything that is wrong with American education today should be required reading for parents, educators, legislators, and any American who wants to see our nation survive.  07-09-15
Declaration of Independence   
"Socialism takes over a country by ignorance and ever increasing entitlements," according to Sal Martingano. He says socialism means "citizens become totally dependent on the government" and that they eventually find themselves in "bondage." This will happen when Americans vote to have the government support them or are so poorly educated that the Constitution no longer means anything to them.  06-14-15
No Greater Valor   
Jerome Corsi's No Greater Valor reminds us that the study of World War II history evokes understanding and appreciation of the sacrifices made to save the world from fascist domination.  05-31-15
The End of Socialism   
Author James Otteson is a professor at Wake Forest University, a Senior Scholar at the Fund for American Studies in Washington, D.C., and a Research Professor in the Freedom Center and Department of Philosophy at the University of Arizona. His newest book is geared toward scholars and lay readers alike.  05-21-15
A Choice Not an Echo   
Faced with the inevitable nomination of Ronald Reagan, liberal Republicans at the 1980 Nominating Convention promoted a deal that would have made Gerald Ford a co-president with Reagan. It was understood that Ford would take orders from Henry Kissinger.

What Works   
The popular syndicated columnist Cal Thomas notes that it is "Groundhog Day" in America. Like the movie that depicts a man going through the same day over and over again, Thomas says America is trying failed strategies repeatedly and getting the same results. He sifts through economic and tax theory, health care measures, family structures, federalism, and more to define what has worked and what will never work.  04-14-15
Barack Obama's Rules for Revolution   
In order to understand the political tactics used by Democrats, Conservatives should be familiar with Saul Alinsky and the strategies his followers use. Alinsky was born in Chicago in 1909. He devoted his life to destroying the capitalist system and trying to bring down Western Civilization. Why? He and others like him want to destroy what is, in order to replace it with a perfect utopian society.  04-03-15
The Great American College Tuition Rip-Off   
Why does a college education cost so much? Tuition increases have far outpaced inflation. Graduating with massive loan debt not only has a negative impact on students and on their families, but it also harms society. Paul Streitz explains why college is a rip-off and suggests ways to solve this problem.   02-22-15
Jesus On Trial   
After his personal examination of Christianity, David Limbaugh concluded that "mainstream culture's disdain and disrespect for the intellectual integrity of Christianity is unwarranted, and its conceited assumption that Christian beliefs are a product of blind faith, bereft of reason and intellect, is completely false."  01-29-15
Takeover   
Conservative strategist and marketing expert Richard Viguerie offers a comprehensive plan to take the Republican party away from the "establishment" and to attract voters to the party. He's been involved in campaigns from Goldwater to Romney.  01-04-15

Some High Costs of Diversity
In his seventh year of "funda­mentally transforming the United States of America," as Barack Obama famously promised five days before he was elected Presi­dent, we're learning new details about what "diversity" in our immigration policy really means. Instead of doing his duty to keep bad people out of America (or removing them if they manage to sneak in), Obama is bring­ing us an unwelcome diversity by accepting thousands of refugees from terrorist-harboring countries such as Syria and Somalia.  Click here for the full story.
Update on Chinese Hacking into U.S. Personnel Info
What if a team of Chinese spies had broken into the Pentagon or the U.S. Office of Personnel Man­agement (OPM) and carted out boxes of classified information? Would we see redundant news and many pictures on our TV screens? Would pundits be saying "this was an act of war"?  Click here for the full story.
