Pocket ConstitutionMillions of Americans are understandably frustrated at the inexorable growth of governmental power, especially at the federal level. This frustration has caused many to look for solutions, many of which will either do nothing or have the potential to make the problem worse—much worse.

The proposal for a constitutional convention to supposedly rein in the out-of-control federal behemoth is the greatest example of the latter. In fact, calling a national convention to change our Constitution in our present toxic atmosphere could very well provide the final blow to our constitutional republic. As the late Justice Antonin Scalia once told the Federalist Society, in reference to the push for such a convention, this is a bad century in which to write a Constitution.

The House of Representatives passed the Equality Act last week which forwards their gender-bending sexual orientation and gender identity ideology. Eagle Forum has long warned against SOGI, especially its potential to irrevocably harm children.

All Gender RestroomSchools are circumventing parental rights in the classroom by advocating and pushing SOGI ideology on children. Many schools teach SOGI and allow children of the opposite sex to use single-sex restrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams. An increasing number of organizations, like Planned Parenthood, are also advocating for “gender-affirming care”, which means irreversible hormone therapy and surgical sex reassignments. Children who struggle with gender dysphoria often resolve their dysphoria if allowed to mature naturally. The puberty blockers and surgery cause infertility and children “often do not see any lasting benefits with regards to mental health. In fact, many patients experience permanent damage to their cardiovascular health, bone density, and reproductive functions.”

Here's the thing with demanding civility -- you actually have to practice it. The Biden administration just learned that lesson the hard way. After two years of insisting on a kinder, gentler Washington, the president has raised plenty of eyebrows with his abrasive nominees. Neera Tanden was the surliest of the bunch, firing off years of social media insults as head of the radical Center for American Progress. She was everything Democrats said they hated in Trump: a brash, blunt, Twitter attack dog. Because she was one of them, the White House thought she'd be safe. They were wrong.

"The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next." - Abraham Lincoln 

This extreme leftist ideology is taking over public schools

Critical Race Theory MathA school district in Oregon decides that requiring students to show their work in a math problem reeks of white supremacy.1 Third graders in California must “deconstruct their racial identities” and “rank their power and privilege,” while Illinois’ new Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards will require all licensed teachers in the state to adopt a progressive political orthodoxy and “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives” to pass along to their students2. No more reading, writing, and arithmetic. Schools are to become radical leftist incubators that focus on social justice and politics.

It's a battle, Pastor Mike McClure said, that he "never wanted to be in." But it's a battle that God called him to fight -- and he knows it. Keeping his church open hasn't been easy, but then being obedient in the face of controversy usually isn't. Still, Pastor Mike pointed out, it's amazing when you do what's right how "the Lord just shows up." And late Friday, He wasn't the only one. The Supreme Court decided to weigh in too -- and the Christians of Santa Clara County couldn't be happier.

In a blatant attempt to silence conservative votes, House Democrats have once again pushed forward H.R. 1, the For the People Act. Make no mistake, this bill is not for the American people, but rather solely for Democrats to win all future elections. 

H.R. 1 is a massive federal takeover of our elections. All of the shady processes that were implemented last year, like mandatory mail-in ballots, same-day voter registration, and ballot harvesting would be placed into federal law. State regulations on showing identification to vote would be erased. Individuals would no longer be required to show an I.D. when voting, thus allowing non-citizens and even dead people to vote. This bill even has provisions that give illegal immigrants and felons a free pass to vote in our elections.

Defendants Seek to Overturn Multi-Million Dollar Verdict

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Life Legal attorneys filed their opening brief with the Ninth Circuit today, asking the appellate court to reverse a $2.4 million judgment against the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and the pro-lifers who filmed Planned Parenthood executives discussing the harvesting and selling of aborted baby body parts. The judgment was entered in favor Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and several other PP affiliates following a jury trial in 2019 that found all the defendants jointly liable on claims for fraud, trespass, racketeering, and unlawful recording.
