Weekend Read: Artificial Intelligence

By Conlan Salgado As human beings we name things. We classify objects and persons. These activities are the foundation of our pursuit of understanding: categorization. It may be that in classifying ourselves as homo sapiens—intelligent hominids—we set ourselves up for perpetual misunderstanding of ourselves. Lately some members of homo sapiens have convinced themselves that they […]

Why Are Elected Republicans Helping Democrats Reward A Failed Education System?

By Neland Nobel Editors’ Note:  We in Arizona are indeed fortunate that our Republican leaders have been leading the nation in school choice. But, Democrats and their allies the teachers’ union will always be trying to cut back school choice and so we must remain ever vigilant. On a national level, we must be sure […]

Principleless, Panicked and Power-Hungry

By James Allan Pandemic Panic was a fascinating book to read, especially for a lawyer like me. It very quickly had my blood pressure way up as it reminded me of the nearly three years of governmental thuggery, heavy-handedness, imposition of idiotic and often irrational rules, and resort to lockdown lunacy. If that last sentence sounds […]

Is Learning Standard “White” English Oppressive for Black Students?

By George Leef Among the many destructive ideas loose in American education is that black students should not be expected to master standard English because doing so is demeaning and demoralizing for them. Standard English is part of the power structure of “whiteness” that must be overthrown before we can have an equitable society. Professors […]

Saving American Children a.k.a. Saving America — Part 2

By John Droz, Jr. Please read Saving American Children – Part 1. What should be the primary objectives of competent U.S. public K-12 schools? Good question, as this is a highly debated topic. Many hundreds of articles, reports, and books have been written on this matter. IMO one of the main reasons that the US education […]

Fomenting Race Wars Begins in Kindergarten

By Linda Goudsmit Globalism is a replacement ideology that seeks to reorder the world into one singular, planetary Unistate, ruled by the globalist elite. The globalist war on nation-states cannot succeed without collapsing the United States of America. The long-term strategic attack plan moves America incrementally from constitutional republic to socialism to globalism to feudalism. […]

Saving American Children, a.k.a. Saving America. – Part 1

By John Droz, Jr. We all agree that “Our children are our future.” However, many of us then make the fatal mistake of saying something like: “Yes, but it’s a long way off before they will have an impact on the country, and I have more pressing things to attend to now.” This single critical […]

The Tailspin of American Boys and Men

By Brenda M. Hafera American males are turning off, and tuning and dropping out. Many boys and men are struggling to flourish in their roles as sons, students, employees, and fathers, and to achieve the sense of purpose that comes from being rooted within marriages, communities, churches, and country. Much of the literature on the […]

Review of Climate: The Movie (The Cold Hard Truth)

By Peter Murphy Editors’ Note:  The film reviewed by CFACT we have viewed and think is excellent.  It is factual and scientific, but easily understood by a layperson.  A link is provided in the third paragraph.  View the movie.  You will enjoy it and be better informed for doing so. Our (mankind’s) ability to control […]

Questions for UA’s Provost Candidate

By Craig J. Cantoni It’s almost a certainty that he wasn’t asked penetrating questions when he spoke the party line about diversity. Two news stories on March 27 exposed what is wrong at the University of Arizona (UA), and, by extension, the Tucson metropolis. The first was a story in the Arizona Daily Star about […]

The Panic Over Climate Change Is Not Catching On

By Thomas C. Patterson The Great Climate Change Revolution is headed for failure. You can tell that because it is already in big trouble before the ultimate heavy lifting has even started. International accords, (i.e. Paris Agreement) passed with great fanfare to ensure cooperation on emissions reductions, are ignored by most of the signers, notably […]

COLUMBIA & CORNELL: The Impact Of Pro-Hamas Educators

By Canary Mission Antisemitism at Cornell and Columbia universities has escalated following the October 7th Hamas massacre to the point where both schools are now the subject of federal investigations and lawsuits filed by Jewish students. The role played by professors in fomenting this hate cannot be understated. Professors openly express anti-Israel sentiments and support […]

Dem Claims Men ‘Don’t Compete in Women’s Sports’ as Stolen Titles Near 300

By Family Research Council Does Rep. Jerry Nadler (D) live in New York or an alternate universe? People certainly wondered after a House Judiciary hearing where the 76-year-old declared, “Men do not compete in women’s sports.” Is the president’s senility contagious or is Nadler living in complete denial of a global phenomenon that’s plunged communities into […]

Charlie and the Social Justice Factory: Is Harvard right to teach chocolate is racist?

By MercatorNet – Navigating Modern Complexities If you’re white and you buy your children chocolate eggs to eat this Easter, aren’t you training them to become infant white supremacists? This question is so incredibly stupid that it could only be posed by someone with a PhD. Sad to say, even chocolate has now been tarred […]

Young People Aren’t Nearly Angry Enough About Government Debt

By Laura Williams Young people sometimes seem to wake up in the morning in search of something to be outraged about. We are among the wealthiest and most educated humans in history.

Did Anti-white, DEI Bias Steal a State Final Spot From a White Basketball Team?

By Selwyn Duke Some say it was the worst call they’ve ever seen in high-school basketball. The scene was the recent NJSIAA Group 2 state semifinal game between New Jersey team Camden — a powerhouse that hadn’t lost to another NJ public-school squad in five years — and underdog Manasquan. Down 46-45 after Camden player […]

CHAPTER 10: Objective Reality Is Required for a Free Society

By Linda Goudsmit Space Is No Longer the Final Frontier—Reality Is [upcoming release April 2024] Globalism is a replacement ideology that seeks to reorder the world into one singular, planetary Unistate, ruled by the globalist elite.

Led by Riley Gaines, 16 Women File Groundbreaking Suit against the NCAA

By Family Research Council The NCAA has ignored Congress, its own committee members, state legislators, parents, and female athletes, but it can’t ignore this. In what is being called “a day of reckoning” for President Charlie Baker, the country’s biggest collegiate sports association is being taken to court over a radical transgender policy that has physically hurt, traumatized, […]

The Collapse of Credentialism

By Rob Jenkins For many years, the United States has been effectively a technocracy, run by unelected “experts.” Former Harvard president Claudine Gay’s fall from grace may mark the end of that era. Technocrats have long told us what we can and can’t do, what we’re allowed to own, what our kids must learn in school, […]

By Mary Vought As the mother of two young daughters, I want to safeguard the values that make our nation great for the next generation.

Taking On the College Cartel

By Frederick M. Hess and Michael Q. McShane The venerable economist Milton Friedman once said, “Only a crisis—actual or perceived—produces real change.” That’s the impulse behind Winston Churchill’s admonition (later famously echoed by Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel): “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Well, welcome to the world of American higher […]

Bribing Future Generations for Marx?

By Jerry Newcombe, D. Min. Can anybody name one-square inch on the planet where Communism has done anyone any good? Anywhere? Not for the ruling elites, but for the people themselves? It doesn’t exist. How, then, do they continue to manage to create new recruits? Well, a story out of California last week explains one […]

How Biden’s 2025 Proposed Budget Impacts Values Issues

By Family Research Council President Joe Biden released his proposed 2025 budget on Monday. “As the president is fond of saying, a budget is a reflection of our values,” said Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) at Senate hearings on the multi-trillion-dollar proposal. But Biden’s proposed budget would: Place transgender-identifying minors into the foster care facilities of the opposite sex, a […]

I’ve read Marilyn’s weekly column (Ask Marilyn) for several years, and she […]
