BORDER INSECURITY

BORDER INSECURITY

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past several weeks, you’re well aware of what’s happening at the United States’ southern border. A tidal wave of people are entering the country illegally. This surge is above and beyond the normal flow of illegal aliens coming into the country. The spike includes many unaccompanied minors, apparently sent by their parents to the United States in hopes that the children will be granted asylum or be reunited with other relatives already in the country. The numbers …

AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM

AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM

For a long time, I didn’t like the term “American Exceptionalism.” I would wince when I heard someone use the phrase. To me, it sounded jingoistic and arrogant. I felt, in many ways, that it was an empty boast. I don’t think that one group of humans is genetically superior to another, so I didn’t buy into the idea that Americans had some sort of pre-programmed inside track to greatness.

I have come to realize that I was wrong. No, Americans aren’t genetically superior, but …

WHERE DOES THE TEA PARTY GO FROM HERE?

WHERE DOES THE TEA PARTY GO FROM HERE?

It’s probably not fair to call the 2014 primary season a roller coaster for the Tea Party. A roller coaster would suggests some ups and some downs. The reality is that it’s been one really, big up in the middle of a bunch of downs. Dave Brat’s victory was a huge up, but that’s been about the only one. In other races, the GOP Establishment has dispatched Tea Party favorites with regularity, including last night’s soul crushing victory for Thad Cochran over Chris McDaniel.

The Tea …

STICKS OR CARROTS? COMMON CORE SHOWING TRUE INTENTIONS IN INDIANA

STICKS OR CARROTS? COMMON CORE SHOWING TRUE INTENTIONS IN INDIANA

There is little mistaking that the recent move by the Department of Education to threaten education funds in Indiana is nothing short of Federal control of education policy. All the mantras about States having the ultimate power and it being driven by the States is becoming more and more unbelievable. From the article in “The Enterprise.”

Indiana, which recently became the first state to withdraw from the new Common Core standards and just last week adopted its own testing standards, is apparently facing possible suspension …

HOW TO TALK TO A LIBERAL; AND WE ABSOLUTELY MUST

HOW TO TALK TO A LIBERAL; AND WE ABSOLUTELY MUST

It’s getting harder and harder to deny that Senator Rand Paul has an uncanny ability to talk to a mainstream media elite who are almost genetically geared to call him out as a racist/bigot/homophobe in any way that they can.

If you followed the political news at all in late April you probably noticed that Senator Paul visited Chicago and Milwaukee and headlined two separate events on School Choice and education reform.

At the Milwaukee event he answered some questions directly after that had little to do …

SCHOOL BOARD REP SUPPORTS ELIMINATION OF DEPT. OF ED

SCHOOL BOARD REP SUPPORTS ELIMINATION OF DEPT. OF ED

The Leesburg representative to the Loudoun County School Board in a letter endorsing Bob Marshall for Congress, agrees with Marshall on the elimination of the U.S. Dept of Education. The Department of Education (from the Loudoun Times Mirror article):

“…which operates on a $67 billion budget, establishes educational policy and administers and coordinates most federal assistance to education.
