Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) issued a stay-at-home order Wednesday, defending churches as “essential,” arguing before reporters at a Thursday press conference that the government holds no authority to close churches – noting what a critical role they play “in times like this” that are plagued by the coronavirus.
Churches in two well-populated states have been declared “essential” during the coronavirus pandemic but the far-left mayor of New York City is offering a draconian solution if they refuse to stay shut.
A prominent pro-family group based in Mississippi is urging the state's governor to bring a halt to abortions in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The state has called for all "elective medical procedures and non-essential medical visits" to be postponed.

For nearly 50 years Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana, has featured a live nativity scene as part of its annual Christmas show, which it calls the “Christmas Spectacular.” But this year, the ACLU and the atheist Freedom From Religion Foundation brought a lawsuit on behalf of an unnamed father and his son, a student at Concord, to block the part of the show recognizing the nativity of
President Obama’s Department of Education has ruled that “common sense and reason” are not allowed to guide decisions of alleged sexual harassment under Title IX. This should come as no surprise, because Title IX is completely unreasonable and void of common sense. Under President Obama, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights has begun to investigate colleges that might not fit
Massachusetts passed a civil rights law which could put people of faith in jail for following their sincerely-held religious beliefs. The law criminalizes discrimination against certain protected classes in public places. One of the protected groups is transgender people. That means Massachusetts could put a pastor in jail for telling his congregation to only use the bathroom of their biological
Yesterday was an important day to celebrate our American heritage. We set aside one Thursday in November to remember the brave men and women who first came to this country seeking a better life. However, there are several lessons that can be learned from the day after Thanksgiving, which is known to most Americans as Black Friday. People who do not love America point to Black Friday as the

The Thanksgiving Proclamation signed by President George Washington was the first official presidential proclamation ever issued by the United States. Here is a quote from George Washington’s Proclamation: “Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey
Obama administration officials are quick to defend the President’s refugee policy. They claim that it’s safe and that the vetting process is comprehensive. However, a leaked memo from the Department of Homeland Security tells a very different story. The memo said that “Refugee fraud is easy to commit, yet not easy to investigate because refugee laws purposefully contain relaxed evidentiary
The small country of Poland is making big leaps for the pro-life movement. A bill that passed the country’s parliament would ban abortions in all cases expect when the mother’s life was at risk. The bill has garnered tremendous support among Polish people of all backgrounds.

“Word of mouth” marketing was the traditional way that good businesses attracted new customers and became more successful, before mass marketing became popular. Years ago, good service was rewarded by customer recommendations to others in favor of the business. That was the free market at its finest, based on actual reviews by genuine customers.

Harvard University is demanding that all clubs become gender-neutral by 2017, but with one big exception. All-women clubs are exempt from the new rule. All-male clubs will be forced to put women on their roles, which is a dream-come-true of the campus feminists. However, university administration is assuring women’s clubs like the Seneca Organization and the Women in Business club that they
University campuses all across the country are falling for the liberal trends of trigger warnings and safe spaces. These terrible idea have taken the country by storm, but some universities are not falling for the liberal lies. John Ellison, dean of students at the University of Chicago, sent a letter to incoming freshmen letting them know that they should not expect to be coddled on his campus.
The transgender issue is spreading to school districts across the country, leaving many parents outraged or out of the loop entirely. Parents of students in the Albuquerque school district were baffled to learn that administrators told teachers not to refer to students as boys and girls. The teachers were also told that they had to refer to students by whatever name and pronoun the student
Despite public outrage against Common Core in our schools, the powerful backers of this failed educational approach continue to inflict it upon us under other names. The multibillion-dollar Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded private organizations to push Common Core, and federal taxpayer dollars are used to coerce States to perpetuate this travesty.
There is no public accountability
The Farmer’s Almanac predicts a cold winter for the continental United States beginning later this year. That is bad news for the millions of Americans who strain to pay their energy costs, but the good news is that energy prices have declined since 2014 thanks to expanded production and particularly the use of hydraulic fracturing, better known as “fracking”.
Fracking consists of drilling

“Microaggressions” are the latest craze among liberal college professors and students. A microaggression is anything that people do or say that implies discrimination without intending to. The University of North Carolina has released a publication to tell their faculty what they can and cannot say in the classroom to avoid these microaggressions. Some of the phrases that they include may
The Obama administration has made it clearer than ever that they do not play by the rules. First, they signed the terrible Iran nuclear deal that promised 1.7 billion dollars to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. Next they broke the long-standing rule of not giving money for hostages by trading 400 million dollars for 3 American prisoners. Now the Obama White House refuses to tell

Ronald Reagan said that God’s hand is on America in a very preferential way. We have inherited a wonderful land of liberty and prosperity, and I believe it's the personal duty of each of us to do what we can to safeguard our magnificent heritage. We have the right of self-government, a right very few people in the history of the world have ever enjoyed
The next president of the United States most likely will appoint three or four justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. Love it or hate it, judges are currently the ones setting the agenda for America, and by legislating from the bench, they are the chief architects of national life. This is not how the Founders intended our constitutional system to work, but it’s what we have now and will need to
America is a nation at war. Whether a president who sympathizes with Islam acknowledges it or not, a large chunk of the Muslim world is actively engaged in undermining our way of life or supporting jihadist organizations planning terrorist attacks on our soil. Across the Pacific Ocean, which used to be under the unchallenged command of the U.S. 7th Fleet, the Communist People’s Republic of
The movement of women (including mothers of young children) into the paid labor force is one of the noticeable social changes of the last 60 years. During this same period, the labor force participation of men in their prime working years has declined. The long-term trend toward more working women, and more women working full-time, is usually portrayed by the left as an advance for women.
As the presidential campaign enters the home stretch, who would have predicted that one of Donald Trump’s major proposals would be an ingenious plan to help mothers of young children? Instead of a weak echo of Democratic talking points, Trump’s pro-family policy for women and families offers a true contrast to Hillary Clinton’s tired feminism. To reassure us that Trump is on the right track,

The Pledge of Allegiance is an important teaching tool for American young people. Reciting the pledge teaches children about some of the principles that make America great. The pledge teaches that we are a republic, not a democracy. It teaches that we are a nation under God. It teaches that we stand for the principles of liberty and justice for all. That’s why generations of American students
To the dismay of liberals, the percentage of women who are in the workforce has not increased in the last quarter century. In 1990, 57 percent of women aged 16 and older were in the workforce. Today, 57 percent of such women are in the workforce, and no more. This is a lower percentage than in many foreign countries. Women are staying at home in America by choice.
