    Against Parents’ Wishes, School District on the Radar of LGBT Group Imposes New Sex Ed


    Most Americans have probably never heard of Fairfax County, Virginia—but their children could be the next victims of its latest policy. That’s because the 10th-largest school district in the country rewrote the rules on sex ed—and the LGBT activists who helped are about to take the model everywhere.

    It was one of the fiercest debates that most locals had ever seen. Parents, furious that they’d been left out of such a controversial subject, flooded the public comment lines with objections. READ MORE...

  • Why There’s an Increased Interest in Homeschooling


    There’s a lot to dislike about many public schools—and right now, student safety is at the top of the list. “After a gunman opened fire on students in Parkland, Florida,” a new Washington Times feature explains, “the phones started ringing at the Texas Home School Coalition, and they haven’t stopped yet.”

    Like so many state organizations, the Texas organization was used to a certain number of inquiries about homeschooling. President Tim Lambert says they usually averaged about 600 calls a month—a number he watched double over the past several weeks. “When the Parkland shooting happened, our phone calls and emails exploded. And they’re not alone. READ MORE...

  • Now That Starbucks CEO Knows About Planned Parenthood Funding, Will He End Chain’s Support of ‘Racist Organization’?


    Your tax dollars aren’t the only thing supporting Planned Parenthood—proceeds from your daily coffee may be, too.

    By now, Starbucks’ grande agenda on social issues isn’t a surprise to anyone, except maybe its CEO. In an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Kevin Johnson seemed completely oblivious to Starbucks’ ongoing relationship with the abortion giant through its matching gift program.

    For Johnson, it’s been a rocky few months at the head of one of America’s biggest brands. After an embarrassing scandal in Philadelphia, when a local employee had two African-Americans arrested for sitting in their shop, the damage control was in full swing. READ MORE...

    Trump, Republicans Changing Lower Courts for the Better


    If all Donald Trump did with these four years was balance the courts, his presidency would still be a success. Lucky for us, he’s got his sights set on a lot more than that—and a pile of accomplishments to prove it.

    But in an age when more decisions are being snatched out of his hands and put in the courts’, this president understands there’s only one way to protect that progress: confirming men and women to the bench who respect and uphold the law.

    Thanks to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, he’s racked up an impressive list. With laser precision, he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are guaranteeing that no matter what happens in November or 2020, the people who have the last word on some of America’s most important issues will be strict constructionists the country can trust.

  • This Student Was Ordered to Remove a Bible Verse From Her Graduation Speech. Here's What Happened.

    This Student Was Ordered to Remove a Bible Verse From Her Graduation Speech. Here’s What Happened.


    Last week, Colorado Mesa University gave the Class of 2018 a lot more than their diplomas to celebrate. The Grand Junction campus finally decided to let Karissa Erickson quote the Bible in her speech. But not without a fight.

    The controversy started a few weeks ago when Erickson, a nursing student, turned in her remarks for graduation. In them, she talks about persevering through adversity. “God always has a purpose,” she wanted to say. “I find comfort in Jesus’ words, and I pass them on to you. John 16:33. ‘These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take comfort, I have overcome the world.’” READ MORE...

  • The Perfect Parting Gift for Cecile Richards

    The Perfect Parting Gift for Cecile Richards


    When Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards walked out of her office for the last time Monday, fans gushed that her legacy wouldn’t be forgotten. They’re right—because Richards’ legacy is the brutal slaughter of 3.5 million unborn lives. In her 12 years at the top, Planned Parenthood destroyed a population bigger than Chicago’s—and somehow managed to convince Congress to help.

    We’ll never know how much taxpayers have unwillingly propped up the group’s killing machine—but we know enough. A half-billion-dollar investment into a group that thinks carving up tiny bodies is a great way to make a buck, or jokes about hitting the gym before snapping babies’ necks, is an indefensible use of American money.

  • How Homeschoolers Defeated California Push to Regulate Education More

    How Homeschoolers Defeated California Push to Regulate Education More


    They came by the hundreds, one newspaper said“perhaps thousands.” Some traveled hours, others waited hours, all for the opportunity to protest one of the most outrageous homeschooling bills ever introduced: California’s AB 2756.

    Spilling out into crammed hallways and overflow rooms, families poured into the statehouse just for the opportunity to spend a few minutes speaking out on a measure that would give the government more power over parents who educate at home.

    Initially, the bill tried to mandate fire inspections of all homeschooling families (which, not surprisingly, firefighters rejected). Then the proposal was amendedthis time to force homeschooling families to give out private information about the names and address of homeschooling families. READ MORE...
