You don't have to fly to China to find real skeptics of freedom. Turns out, there are plenty right here at home. They pop their heads up every time the Trump administration does something meaningful on religious liberty or human rights -- which, thanks to this president's priorities, means we hear from them, a lot. Sticking up for freedom used to be America's calling card. Now that we have a State Department who takes that mission seriously, the country is finally starting to see who the real radicals are.

Until recently, most people didn't know that a town called St. Louis Park, Minnesota even existed. And if you asked most residents, a vote against the Pledge of Allegiance isn't how they'd choose to be introduced. But thanks to five misguided council members, the suburb of Minneapolis is officially on the map. And not in a way anyone's proud of.

WASHINGTON -- It is often said our nation's capital is filled with wealthy college-educated elites operating in a company town where everything is transactional. They are a clubby set of folks who can "fail up" in their profession and rarely interact meaningfully with anyone who isn't part of their peerage. They have lost touch with whomever they used to be wherever they used to come from.

As a former educator, I found it very interesting that with all the talk about quality education reform needed in SC by our Governor, Legislators, SCDE, Administrators and teachers, that no one was listing the present in line with Common Core standards we have been using since 2012. Those standards drive curriculum and testing. But no, not any of them have mentioned the standards...crickets.

 “The issue of Illegal immigrants in America or in any other country can easily be resolved - Enforce the Law.”

Within America, it is clear that when it comes to the issue of illegal immigration, the laws are simply not being enforced, which encourages and breeds crime, and at the end of the day, anarchy and the loss of your country (Psalm 9:17).

People come to Pinterest for all kinds of things. But apparently, there's one thing users won't find on the app -- and that's tolerance. It was supposed to be a harmless site, a place for swapping recipes and planning kitchen remodels. Now we know: even the most innocuous platforms aren't immune from Big Tech's censorship. And if that's the case, conservatives are in trouble. Because the problem just got a whole lot worse than we thought.

WASHINGTON – Throughout our nation's history, we've often heard the term, "Freedom of the Press." But has America turned into a country where there is Unfreedom of the Press

That's the title of radio personality and author Mark Levin's new book and it comes at a critical time. In today's political landscape, in the age of Trump, catchphrases like, "fake news" and "enemy of the people" have stuck like glue to the mainstream media. So what are we to make of this rhetoric? Is it an exaggeration or could something even more drastic be going on?
