What Does Keystone Tell Us About Democrats?

Harry Reid, Jeanne Shaheen, Jeff Merkley, Tom Udall, Mark Warner, Kay Hagen, Mark UdallBy Mr. Teasdale

A wise man once said “If you ever injected truth into politics, you have no politics”. Ok, it wasn’t a wise man. It was just Will Rogers. But it still true. Have the Democrats been telling the American people the truth about the Keystone Pipeline over the last six or so years, while blocking all attempts at its passage? Course they haven’t. And their upcoming vote in the Senate proves that. Continue reading

Obama The Dictator? VIDEO Shows Us That We Should Have Seen It Coming

obama dictatorBy Mr. Teasdale

I found an interesting video online today where Obama, on a number of different occasions, referenced the possibility of bypassing congress. I didn’t think the substance of what Obama was saying was all that interesting, new, or novel. Not at all. Not for Obama anyway. We’ve all seen the videos by now of Obama saying he can’t bypass congress after all. What I did find interesting howerver was not only the constant applause Obama got when talking about bypassing congress, but more specifically, Obama’s body language when he referenced the possibility. I thought it was very very telling, particularly at the end of the video. That video is posted a few paragraphs down. Continue reading

“A Republic, If You Can Keep It”

ben_franklin-1-2-e1336601575917By Mr. Teasdale

I’ll admit it. I’m sort of obsessed with the Constitution. Perhaps its because I have a Type A personality and I like the idea of the sort of structure, order, and predictability that any Constitution should…should in theory create, if actually adhered to. Perhaps its because I consider myself a conservative, and know from studying American history that while the Constitution created a more centralized form of government than the States had at the time of its creation, it at the very same time actively works to diffuse government power and guarantee liberty to the individual. I think the latter is more so that which has caused me to revere the Constitution, learn more about its formation, and has made me want to know how best to preserve and promote it. Continue reading

Disgraceful

constitution-fireBy Mr. Teasdale

Bookmark the following videos and pass them around. People need to SEE what a lawless hypocrite our current President is…for the sake of the few who don’t already know. Obama is truly breaking new ground here. He really is. This isn’t Obamacare, where conservatives say its unconstitutional and liberals say it is constitutional, and the two sides disagree. OBAMA said the executive action he is about to take on immigration is unconstitutional just a few years ago. He didn’t say this TYPE of thing was unconstitutional….he said THIS was unconstitutional…and he’s about to do it anyway: Continue reading

Article V Of The Constitution. The Final Straw?

article-v-vidBy Mr. Teasdale

James Madison, a Federalist, and therefore a proponent for passage of the Constitution and of a stronger central government, affectionately known as the “father of the Constitution”, in arguing for the Constitutions passage and in trying to alleviate the fears of those citizens skeptical about giving more power to a central government, said in Federalist 45, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and infinite.” That was a mouthful of a sentence, huh? Again, that promise, of a limited federal government, was written by an advocate for a stronger central government, and by the man who was said to have written much of what came to be our Constitution. It really goes to show you how generally united both Federalist and Anti-Federalists were in their belief in limited government, despite the Constitutions formation. Continue reading

PISA: U.S. Test Scores Below Average, Again

educationBy Mr. Teasdale

I know. We’re all so surprised, right? According to the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), U.S. students continued to test below average for the 2012 school year. Considering the assets we have at our disposal, average ought to be a disgrace, much less below average, again. Just a few PISA scores showed we ranked 26 out of 34 in math, 17th in reading, and 21st in science. What can we realistically do about that? What’s the answer to solving this problem? Well, there is no singular answer to this tragedy, but make no mistake, it must be solved, or else.

Aristotle said of education, “All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.” Jefferson also saw the import of education when he similarly said, “If a nation expects to Continue reading

Supreme Court Orders Obama Admin to Respond to Christian Homeschooling Family’s Appeal

Romeike-Family-300x224By Heather Clark

WASHINGTON – The United States Supreme Court has ordered Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice to respond to a petition to appeal from a Christian homeschooling family that is fighting deportation to their homeland of Germany.

As previously reported, Ewe and Hannelore Romeike have been battling the matter in the courts for several years while continuing to raise their six children in rural Tennessee. The Romeike family fled to the United States in 2008 after German authorities demanded that they stop homeschooling in violation of national law.  Continue reading
