Resisting The Ruling Elites Insanity

Written by Robert Knight

A day doesn’t pass without more striking evidence that our ruling elites are not only evil but unhinged.

Take Yale Law School’s, Ian Ayres. In a column for Thursday’s Washington Post, Mr. Ayres announced that he would initially address all students as “they” this school year instead of using singular pronouns. This is “less likely to cause offense than using harmful stereotypes to guess at someone’s pronouns,” he explained.

By “harmful stereotypes,” he means common-sense clues to gender, such as body type, clothing, voice, makeup, hair, and so on.… Continue Reading

Defining The Human Being: Justice Kennedy Released The Kraken

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

In 1992, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe and the mystery of human life.” And thus, the good judge, who became emblematic of what it means to “straddle the fence,” opened up Pandora’s box and released a curse of Herculean proportions on modern man:

Consider the week’s headlines.

Proponents of critical race theory double down in suggesting that people with paler skin are actually “less” human than “persons are of color.”… Continue Reading

Stopping Communism One School District At A Time

Written by Robert Knight

Once upon a time not so long ago, Loudoun County, Virginia, was the most conservative county in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

An exurb outside the Beltway with a high-tech corridor rivaling California’s Silicon Valley, plus the Washington Football team’s headquarters and Dulles Airport, Loudoun’s sprawling suburbia is supplanting farmland like super-charged kudzu.

The eastern part is home to more than 100 huge, gray “data centers,” through which more than 70 percent of the world’s Internet traffic flows. … Continue Reading

Happy Pride Month! Celebrating the Essential Vice and Utmost Evil

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

On June 1, 2021, Joe Biden used his bully pulpit to encourage Americans to stand proud in our nation’s march for what he called equality. “Pride stands for courage. [Pride] stands for justice, and most of all [pride] stands for love … Happy Pride Month!” the president tweeted.

In the fall of 1942, C.S. Lewis took to the airways of his nation to encourage his fellow citizens to, likewise, stand resolute.… Continue Reading

Today’s Religion of Wokeism Ignores Logic, Science And Reason

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Two weeks ago, on May 8, 2021, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) became the first mainline Protestant denomination to elect a transgender bishop.

The Rev. Megan Rohrer, a female who insists on using the pronouns “he” and “him,” was elected to serve as the leader of the Sierra Pacific Synod of the ELCA, by a vote 209 yeas to 207 nays. Rohrer will be installed on September 11 at St.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Laurie Higgins on “The Transing of Public Schools”

Why Conservatives Should Not Support ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner For Governor

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Caitlyn” (aka Bruce) Jenner has announced his candidacy for governor of California. The question is should conservatives support him? After all, Jenner stands for lower taxes, common-sense border security, and less government intrusion in our daily lives. Surely this would be better than the tyrannical rule of Gavin Newsom, wouldn’t it?

The answer, in a word, is no, and the simple reason is, likewise, one word — priorities.… Continue Reading

Why Compromising With The Equality Act Falls Short

Written by John Stonestreet and Timothy D. Padgett

The most recent incarnation of the Equality Act is also the most radical version we have yet seen. It’s worth noting as well that it’s closer to becoming law than any version so far put forward.

As a friend of mine would say, this isn’t magic; it’s math. This Congressional term, the Equality Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Though unlikely at this point, a 50-50 tie in the Senate broken by a Democratic White House is feasible, making the Equality Act a live option.

Exposing The Left’s Radical Version of ‘Normal’

Written by Robert Knight

Given the level of insanity erupting at all levels in America, it wasn’t really a shock when the huge, multinational corporation Unilever announced in early March that it was pulling the word “normal” from at least half of its products.

No more soap for “normal skin care,” or shampoo for “normal hair.” It’s offensive.

A global study by Unilever found that the word “normal” made 56 percent of the respondents feel excluded and that 70 percent felt that using the word on packaging has a negative impact on people.… Continue Reading
