"Where did Common Core come from?" is a question I often hear from parents in every state I've visited as I travel the country speaking about the Islamic infiltration of America.
Because in 2014-2015 America, public school students via Common Core are:Public school sponsored trips to mosques via taxpayer expense, girls must wear head scarves (Colorado parents complain), Debating whether or not the Holocaust was "merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain," (an eighth-grade assignment defended by the Rialto Unified School District, Los Angeles), Pledging allegiance to Allah (New York), Observing two "Muslim holy days," (New York City), Being taught Islamic vocabulary lessons (North Carolina), Being taught Islamic Culture (Tennessee), Being taught world history from Islamic perspective (Florida) that includes learning about the five pillars of Islam (Maryland father, a Marine Corps veteran, complains and is banned from school grounds), Told to proselytize by creating a pamphlet about Islam to "introduce Islam to 3rd graders" that introduces Allah to children as the same God of the Christians and Jews (Michigan), Reciting in class the Shahada, "There is No God but Allah," and the Muslim Call to Prayer (Massachusetts).
Parents in every state are outraged, protesting, and asking, "Why is Islam being taught in public schools?" and "How did this happen?" "Where is the ACLU?" "Where are the people 'protesting against' religion being taught in public schools?" more >>
Rev. Franklin Graham has warned that the end of time may be near given the leadership of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.
"One of the greatest threats to America is the progressives (a new name for liberals) led by President Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder who are trying to impose a new morality—which is really no morality at all—jamming it down the throats of the American people. America has been blessed by God more than any nation on the face of this earth. When our country was birthed, its foundations and laws were based on biblical laws and principles. We used to be 'one nation under God,' now we're a nation that has turned its back on God. History shows that when nations do this, their end is near," Franklin posted to Facebook on Monday.
This is not the first time Franklin has spoken about government's leadership and a lack of morality. Earlier this month, he predicted that persecution would come to America given Obama's foreign policy. more >>
Seeing as the costs will come due only after Barack Obama has left the White House, I guess he doesn't care how high those costs are. But the costs are horrendous, as just added up by our country's foremost authority on such things, Robert Rector of The Heritage Foundation.
Rector told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee last week that the lifetime costs of Social Security and Medicare benefits paid to the millions of immigrants to whom Obama is granting legal status will be about $1.3 trillion. Rector's calculation is based on his assumption that at least 3.97 million immigrants will receive legal status under Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, and the average DAPA beneficiary has only a 10th-grade education.
DAPA recipients, according to Rector's calculations, will receive $7.8 billion every year once they get access to the refundable earned income tax credit and the refundable additional child tax credit. Those EITC and ACTC recipients will also be allowed to claim credit for three years of illegal work, which will sock U.S. taxpayers for another $23.5 billion. more >>
Here are 10 reactions to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's, R-Texas, Monday announcement at Liberty University that he is running for president.
These comments are from journalists and pundits from across the partisan and ideological spectrum and are in no particular order.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has said that President Barack Obama needs to get over his "temper tantrum" concerning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's recent re-election victory. Obama has said that Netanyahu has been misleading in his campaign plans for a two-state solution to create a Palestinian state.
"The President should get over it. Get over your temper tantrum, Mr. President," McCain told CNN's Gloria Borger on "State of the Union" on Sunday.
"It's time that we work together with our Israeli friends and try to stem this tide of ISIS and Iranian movement throughout the region, which is threatening the very fabric of the region," he added. more >>
In 2008, many conservatives opposed the bank bailout. Why send $700 billion of hardworking Americans' taxpayer dollars to banks that had failed? Some of us argued it was unfair. Some of us argued it was unnecessary. But among the strongest arguments we made was the moral-hazard argument. Bailing out reckless behavior today will only encourage reckless behavior in the future.
I continue to believe we were right to worry about the bad lesson the bank bailout would teach financial institutions. But in hindsight, we should have also focused on what it would teach others. All across the United States, in high school study halls and college dorm rooms, more than a few young Americans were watching Congress, the President, and Wall Street.
Any parent with children knows that when they are watching what you do, they are learning from what you do. If you swear, they will learn to swear. If you cut corners, they will learn to cut corners. The young learn the habits of the old – for better or worse. more >>
