The Obama administration has unveiled a tentative program that looks to give prisoners the right to receive Pell Grants for the first time in over 20 years.
The program, dubbed the Second Chance Pell Pilot Program, is scheduled to begin by fall 2016, and will allow a limited number of prisoners to enroll in a select set of associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs. How many prisoners will participate, what degrees they will be able to seek, and even how much the program will cost are all Read more [...]
I was going to write a satire piece, but frankly, the truth is bad enough. And you’re not going to believe it. (Well, maybe you won’t be surprised.)
The University of New Hampshire has a complete guide to politically correct speech. They just don’t call it that. They call it the “Bias-Free Language Guide.” Let me give you some examples:
Don’t say “American” when referring to someone from the United States. Say “U.S. resident” or “resident of the U.S.”
Using the term Read more [...]
I wrote back in March that John Boehner, according to his own State Constitution, should not even be in office. Sadly, too many in his own state, including the State's Attorney General are to spineless to enforce their own constitution. Yet, in Congress we are hearing that there is an attempt to at least remove the Democrat, I'm sorry, Republican in name only, John Boehner from his place as Speaker of the House.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) filed are resolution to declare, "the office of Speaker of Read more [...]
It must be difficult for Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. After all, she’s watching her chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, face a legitimate struggle for the party nomination against a man who says he’s a socialist, serves as an Independent in the Senate, and is running for the Democratic nomination for the White House. He’s an old white dude and the Millennials are crazy about him. What’s going on?
Leave it to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, then, to put Schultz Read more [...]
The Boy Scouts have made a fateful and fatal decision to allow homosexuals to serve as mentors to young boys. This will be and should be the end of this once noble organization.
Why? Because of the well-established link between homosexuality and pedophilia.
As Peter Sprigg writes for the Family Research Council, “The percentage of child sexual abuse cases in which men molest boys is many times higher than the percentage of adult males who are homosexual, and most men who molest boys self-identify Read more [...]
While markets hone in on the Federal Reserve's monetary policy hints, former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan sees a bigger economic irritant—government spending.
On Wednesday, Greenspan decried a rise in entitlement costs, which he contended have pressured the U.S. economy.
"To me the discussion today shouldn't even be on monetary policy it should be on how do we constrain this extraordinary rise in entitlements," he said in a CNBC "Closing Bell" interview, calling the trend "extremely dangerous." Read more [...]
The House is leaving for its summer recess until September 8 without voting on legislation to defund Planned Parenthood in the wake of the recent gruesome videos released of the abortion giant’s practice of harvesting the body parts of aborted babies for sale to biomedical companies.
A House leadership aide reportedly told The Hill, “In order to enact legislation to defund Planned Parenthood, we need more Republicans and Democrats in both the House and the Senate to support our efforts.”
Thousands Read more [...]
The world's anger at hunter Walter Palmer is understandable but misplaced
Minnesota Dentist Named as Killer of Beloved Lion
Under Mugabe: Robin Hammond Records the Suffering of Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe Is Proposing to Return a Select Number of Farms to White Landowners
Earlier this month, a 55-year-old American dentist named Walter Palmer went on a safari holiday in western Zimbabwe, where, over a 40-hour period, he maimed, cautiously tracked, and finally killed a lion. Palmer, a veteran big-game Read more [...]
America’s anchors have spoken: the shooting of one lion vastly outweighs the trafficking of baby parts by a taxpayer-funded abortion giant. In other words, the broadcast news shows spent more time in one day on Cecil the Lion than they did on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks.
The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting aborted baby parts — censored Read more [...]
One in five women has relied on Planned Parenthood for health care in her lifetime. Those women are the victims here. Planned Parenthood patients turn to us not just because they know we uphold the highest medical standards of care but also because we are part of their local community. More than half of Planned Parenthood’s health centers are in rural or medically underserved areas. And for many low-income women, Planned Parenthood health centers are their sole source of medical care. Our health Read more [...]
America needs to prepare for a major governmental assault on religious liberty in the wake of the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling, but those standing against the tide can find plenty of inspiration from those who pioneered the concept of religious freedom at the American founding.
Michael Farris is co-founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association and author of “The History of Religious Liberty.” The book details the fierce fight for the religious freedom provisions that eventually Read more [...]
Fox News radio host Todd Starnes got an earful on Wednesday from Cheryl Casone after he argued that the country had lost its “moral compass” because it was more concerned that an American dentist may have illegally killed Cecil the lion, one of Zimbabwe’s most beloved tourist attractions, than it was about abortion.
“Look anywhere online and you will find outrage over the dentist killing of a lion for sport,” Fox Business host Stuart Varney announced during his Wednesday show. “But Read more [...]
