Now the Government Wants to Take Away our Cars

Via ZeroHedge.com and Reason.com

Despite losing in the United States Supreme Court, the state of Indiana is still arguing that there are virtually no eighth amendment limits on what it can seize using civil asset forfeiture, according to Reason.

In fact, Indiana Solicitor General Thomas Fisher argued in Indiana Supreme Court last week that it would be constitutional to seize any and every car that exceeded the speed limit. It was an argument that drew laughter from the U.S. Supreme Court last year.

New York has Declared War against Religious Freedom and Education

By Micah Morrison from Judicial Watch:

New York State has opened to the door to a war on religious education. New guidelines from the state’s Department of Education are framed as applying to all “religious and independent schools” in New York, but no one is fooled. The changes are aimed right at New York City’s freewheeling Orthodox Jewish seminaries, known as yeshivas. More than 100,000 students attend yeshivas in New York City.

The new guidelines revisit the “substantial equivalency” statute that has kept the peace in New York schools since 1897. Non-public schools can educate their students as they see fit, provided the education is “substantially equivalent” to public schools. The new guidelines change the equation. Math must be taught every day. English, science, and social studies must be taught. Schools must provide samples of teaching schedules, textbooks, and lesson plans. Non-compliant schools risk withdrawal of funding for things like textbooks and transportation, and students ultimately could be forced to go to another school. Students that resist transfer risk being declared “truant” and legal steps to challenge parental competency could follow. The new mandates will be enforced by inspections from local school district officials. Continue reading

Preserving Liberty in Christ in an Age of Lawlessness

I find this reassuring, not because they are seeking me out, but because of what they are implicitly communicating through the questions they ask. On the surface, these questions would seem to indicate a lack of spiritual maturity. This is attributable to the substance of the inquiries which reveal the struggles and innermost turmoil these believers are attempting to overcome. However, I take a different view. Continue reading

Social Media Wants to Purge Free Speech

Just like Hitler had his Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment & Propaganda, American communists within academia, the mainstream media and political circles have their own organizations whom act as fronts for mass censorship – social media.

What was once thought to be bastions of free speech within the internet have become ideological echo chambers, where Leftist thought abounds but Christianity and conservatism are squelched with much enthusiasm by their respective “communities”. Think of it as historical Marxist suppression manifested on the web. Continue reading

The Tomi Lahren Debacle Proves that Many are Followers of Personalities and not Principles

At the outset, let’s address the caged cat: Ms. Lahren is heretically wrong on abortion and in contradicting her own statements on the matter proves she’s either a publicity-seeking opportunist or genuinely had a fascinatingly quick, Trump-like change of heart. I highly doubt the latter and I’ll explain why. But let’s scrutinize her recently announced posture on abortion first. Continue reading
