America prides itself in being called “the land of the free.” But, what, exactly, does it mean to be free? Does it mean owning a car and having a job? People in communist countries own a car and have a job. Does it mean going to a mall to shop. People in communist countries go to a mall to shop. Does it mean going to an amusement park to recreate? People in communist countries go to amusement parks. Does it mean going to the polls and voting? People in communist countries go to the polls and vote. In reality, many, if not most, of the things that most Americans would identify as marks of freedom are commonly practiced in the most oppressed communist countries of the world. So, what does it mean to be free?
Imagine this, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner read from the U.S. Constitution as he sat onstage for an interview with Politico's Mike Allen at the Newseum in Washington May 25, 2011. Not to uphold the constitution, but to make a case for raising the U.S. national debt limit.
Staver’s reference draws from President Ronald Reagan’s famous speech to Mikhail Gorbachev, when asking the former leader of the Soviet Union to tear down the wall of Communism.
In what marks an unprecedented political move, President Obama is making a direct plea to American students in schoolhouses across the United States.
On Tuesday, September 8, Obama plans to bypass parents and directly target children in an effort to implement his political agenda.
Federal law expressly forbids the Secretary of Education or any officer from exercising “any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system.”
Millions of parents are justifiably outraged, and the Liberty Counsel is calling for Obama to cease the illegal activity.
U.S. Department of Education (DOE) Secretary Arne Duncan recently sent a letter to school principals encouraging them to cease academic instruction and have classes tune in to a live speech Obama will give to children during school hours on Tuesday at noon. The DOE even provided lesson plans, sample activities and questions that teachers can use to promote the event. The letter encourages teachers to “build background knowledge about the president by reading books about Barack Obama.”
“Obama has pushed his political agenda to the extreme by forcing himself on America's children,” says Mathew D. Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law. “Obama's political agenda on healthcare and his expansive vision for government is being rejected by the American people. Now Obama is after our children, who, like some socialist members of Congress, have not read the healthcare bill.
Although, due to the backlash, some of the most offensive language has been softened, students as young as kindergarten will, nonetheless, be asked: “Why is it important that we listen to the President?” and then, initially, were to be asked to write about “what they can do to help the president.” Their writings would later be used “to make students accountable to their goals.”
DOE Secretary Duncan is no moderate. He is a former Chicago politician who chose Kevin Jennings as Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. Jennings was the founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network), a radical group that promotes forced acceptance of homosexuality and transsexuality in schools to children as young as five.
Parents are urged to demand that schools not participate. If the school allows Obama and the DOE to indoctrinate school children, parents ought to opt their children out of this illegal program.
According to the results of a poll published across the local press Friday afternoon, shortly before the start of the Sabbath, nearly six out of every 10 Israelis think Benjamin Netanyahu should reject the Obama administration's demands to end completely the construction of communities in the biblical heartland of Samaria and Judea.
Liberals have always coveted the return of Clinton in the Oval Office. Those were the days, if only he could run again, they dream. Can you imagine unlimited terms for any president? Nixon perhaps or Bush the second? Maybe we should bring Carter back? God forbid. Now they have Obama. What if President Barack Obama could be our President forever? Imagine that?
Does the government have power to force corporations to buy failed companies? In an account released by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo the former United States Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and the Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke threatened to remove Ken Lewis, president of the Bank of America and the entire board of directors if they refused to purchase Merrill Lynch late last year.
If South Florida is a melting pot, the tax day TEA Party gave it a new flavor on Wednesday.
Indeed, a revolution is brewing across the country and residents of traditionally liberal Broward County are running to the battle line to exercise their First Amendment rights.
A recent report circulating around the Internet has engendered the worry because of a newly distributed U.S. Department of Homeland Security Assessment called “Rightwing Extremism: Current economic and political climate fueling resurgence in radicalization and recruitment.”
