“One Nation Under Allah”?

Recently, a student of Justice High School in Fairfax, Virginia led the graduation ceremony in the Pledge of Allegiance. In this public school setting, when she got to the part about “one nation under God,” she said, instead, “one nation under Allah.” This was apparently without any permission from school officials. The idea of “one […]

Marxism and the Military?

Can anybody name a square inch spot on the planet anywhere where Marxism has brought anything good? Anywhere? Certainly not in: China, Russia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela. And now, Marxism is allegedly making inroads into the U.S. military at present? So says a whistleblower, who just got fired from the military. Critical Race Theory, which […]

“Free” Government Money Is the Opposite of Compassion

In his book Was Jesus a Socialist? author Lawrence W. Reed writes, “Almost everybody wants to help those in need. The crucial question is how to help.

The examples border on the ridiculous: Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller “Psycho” is sexist. The Muppets require a disclaimer from Disney. Dr. Seuss, the famous children’s author, becomes radioactive for reportedly having engaged in racist […]
