Dr. Beverly LaHaye and Penny Nance Celebrate 40 Years of Success for Concerned Women for America

Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, celebrated its 40th anniversary and the retirement of founder Dr. Beverly LaHaye at a Gala headlined by Vice President Mike Pence. "With the retirement of Mrs. Beverly LaHaye, who has served God faithfully, we’re marking the passing of the baton on the firm foundation from which she built this organization,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President.

The left’s vile smear of America’s founding

Rich Lowry, New York Post

It is certainly true that an American nation existed prior to the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and slavery was its great sin, with permutations still felt today. But to pretend that racism is the essence of America and constituted one of the country’s founding principles is an odious and reductive lie. Rather than enhancing the moral standing of slavery, the Founding tended to undermine it. In the broadest gauge, it’s a mistake to treat the United States as an outlier in terms of its racial attitudes, when it was really an outlier in its (imperfect) embrace of liberty.

Black Education Decline

Walter Williams, CNS News

Genetic or environmental arguments cannot explain why blacks of an earlier generation were able to meet the demanding mental test standards to get into an elite high school. Socioeconomic conditions for blacks have improved dramatically since 1938. The only other plausible reason for the decline in academic achievement is that there has been a change in black culture. What has the triumph of egalitarian and diversity principles done for the rest of New York's school system? Are their academic achievement scores better than students at New York's specialized schools? The most important question for black parents: What has been allowed to happen to cripple black academic excellence?

AOC: The Perfect Graduate of Today's Biased Colleges

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

This is a new form of proud Know-Nothingism. We can't even say it will come back to haunt us because it already is doing just that. Reforming our educational system is the most important mission of our time. Presidents come and go. Even media grandees come and go — after a while (too long a while). But education remains, shaping our future. Change it or everyone sitting in Congress will be AOC. (No it doesn't stand for All-Out Communist. But wait long enough and it could.)

WomenOnTheWall.org Appeals To President Trump

Former President Obama issued an Executive Order that unlocked the doors of privacy and now allows our children to be data-mined of their personal information which includes social, emotional, and behavioral information.  We believe President Trump could and would stop this instantly if he met with concerned parents and researchers and was told the truth about this government sanctioned child abuse.

In the land of opportunity, education should be King

Editors, Washington Examiner

Instead of Gov. George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door these days, it is the teachers' unions who prevent racial minority children from getting a decent education. The unions use their influence to stop efforts to create school choice programs. Working for their own interests — their pay and benefits — rather than those of students, they trap minority children in bad public schools.

Left-wing education cheats children

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

The sudden decline in performance in the Edina (Minnesota) school system is what happens when educators think it is their job to impose their political views on students. Every American, in every state should make sure their elected school officials are focused on education – not political indoctrination.

Students’ Insult to DeVos Embarrasses HBCUs

Jonathan David Farley, American Greatness

Democrats have lost their way. The cities they have led for decades, and the school systems within them, have failed. As President Trump said, they offer nothing but carnage and failure. Of course, the Democrats counsel patience, so their leaders can preserve their riches, preserve their chokehold on urban residents, and condemn those children to illiteracy, joblessness, and homelessness. Betsy DeVos has the answers, and they are simple. That does not mean they are easy–each new generation must find the courage to fight.

Get Judges And Private Organizations Out Of Refugee Resettlement

The notion that an unelected federal judge could order the President and Congress to admit a given number of foreigners and order the States to support with welfare and education benefits however many refugees a private organization chose to send them defies so many constitutional limits that it is hard to even begin to count them.

How President Trump Can Halt Obama's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Program

President Donald Trump, acting on his own can easily incapacitate AFFH until incoming Secretary Ben Carson can coordinate with Congress to fully eliminate the threat.  Even if Dr. Carson's confirmation takes months!

Draining the Cultural Swamp in our Children’s Minds

Placing government in its proper perspective and teaching our children why property and freedom are inseparable, are the first steps in clearing their minds of the cultural swamp.

The Mental Dismemberment of Children: Part Two

In November, 1992, following the election of Bill Clinton, Marc Tucker, president of the National Center for Education and the Economy (NCEE) wrote an 18-page letter to Hillary Clinton. He excitedly outlined the opportunity the Clintons now had to “remold the entire American system…” Today, the proposal Tucker made to Hillary Clinton that fateful day is now completely in place.

The Mental Dismemberment of Children: Part One

Tom DeWeese channels Any Rand and Victor Hugo in this searing indictment of how the liberal establishment has created a dictatorial federal education system that has been transformed from teaching basic academics into one that focuses on controlling and remolding children’s minds.

The Moral Case For Trump's "America First" Agenda

Memo to the rest of the planet: Stop panicking over the victory of Donald Trump.  His “America First” agenda is not about abandoning the free world.  If anything, it is about saving the free world—from itself.

Why Trump's Education Pick Scares Unions

Jason Riley, Wall Street Journal

Mr. Trump clearly has tapped a fighter, and education reformers are thrilled. Mr. Obama and his Education Department supported charter schools but not vouchers. Ms. DeVos embraces school choice writ large, and states interested in expanding educational options for low-income families will proceed knowing that Washington has their back.

Must Read Book: Tom DeWeese’s ERASE

Like Atlas Shrugged and the Left Behind series Tom DeWeese's ERASE presents a fictional path through a dystopian future. However, in ERASE every single policy presented in the book, from the use of technology to change our culture; to the use of the public school classrooms to eliminate true knowledge; to the destruction of Christianity in a drive to meld all religions into one powerful tool for government, is all true and happening at this very moment.

Marco Rubio = Jeb Bush without the good manners

If you take Jeb Bush’s policies and record on spending, education and amnesty for illegal aliens and add-in John McCain’s policies and record on amnesty for illegal aliens, bringing Muslims to America and engaging in endless and inconclusive adventures in the Middle East, and then add a dash of support for the Obama and Hillary Clinton disasters in Libya and Syria, plus a strong dose of their views on amnesty and funding left-wing racist organizations, you don’t get a limited government constitutional conservative – what you get is Marco Rubio – Jeb Bush, without the integrity and good manners.

Michael Patrick Leahy, Breitbart

A Breitbart News investigation reveals that mainstream media outlets incorrectly reported a key detail in the story of the 9th grade World Geography teacher in Virginia who sparked a national controversy over a “calligraphy lesson” that required students to hand copy the Arabic characters that comprise the shahada, the Islamic statement of faith.

Tennessee Parents Battle Cultural Jihad: Arrogant Bureaucrats & Islam Join Forces

Hundreds of parents from across the county and the state of Tennessee gathered October 20 at a town hall meeting in Sparta, Tennessee sponsored by White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination, “to continue efforts to inform and engage the community about the pro-Islamic textbooks and materials being forced upon teachers and students by the White County School Board.” Read on to learn more about their fight against the forced Islamization of America's public school students.

PATRIOTS vs. POLITICIANS 2015

What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism - even American citizenship are taboo in today's school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science and the Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys.
