Our Dec. 31st Federal Fundraising Deadline Is At The End Of The Month, And We Desperately Need A $30,000 December Miracle

December 31st is the most important deadline that our campaign for Congress has faced so far. All over the country people will be watching to see how much money we raised in the fourth quarter, and a good result could mean lots of support and contributions from Republican organizations all over the country. But a bad result would be disastrous. The key will be to show that we raised more money during our second quarter than we did during our first quarter, and right now we are behind that pace. This time of the year people are so preoccupied with holiday preparations, and so many political campaigns go into “hibernation mode” until after the first of the year. But we cannot afford to do that, because what will happen over the next few weeks could be the deciding factor in whether we win or not next May. If we can raise $30,000 by December 31st we will be where we need to be, and if you would like to help you can do so right here(Read More...)

California Is Being Sued Because So Few Of Their Public School Children Can Read

At one elementary school in California, 96 percent of the students are not proficient in either English or math.  How is that even possible?  Unfortunately, the more the federal government gets involved in education, the worse it seems to get.  At one time the United States had the greatest system of public education on the entire planet, but these days we only seem to make headlines when news comes out about how poorly we are doing.  This has been a hot button issue for me for a long time, but even I was surprised when I learned that the state of California is actually being sued because so few of their public school children can read… (Read More...)

UPDATE: After A Nationwide Uproar, Baby Elijah Is Now Home With Mom And Dad

I love it when a tragic story has a happy ending.  Last week I told you all about a mother and a father here in north Idaho that had their newborn child taken away by government bureaucrats right after it was born.  The mother has cerebral palsy, but the truth is that there was absolutely no reason to take that child away from the parents.  In addition to both parents being there, a grandfather also lives in the home, and so there would be plenty of care for the little one.  Well, the good news is that Baby Elijah was restored to Mom and Dad on Friday.  The battle is not over yet, but for the moment this is a major victory.

CPS Grabs Newborn Baby From A Disabled Christian Mother After The Parents Expressed A Desire Not To Vaccinate

Sometimes a story comes along that makes your blood boil, and this is one of them.  All over the nation CPS is stealing children from Christian families that express concerns about the safety of vaccines, but I never expected it to happen in north Idaho.  Actually, a large number of families from all over the country have moved to Idaho in recent years specifically because of the vaccine issue.  In Idaho, there is no legal requirement to vaccinate your children, and so no child should ever be taken away because parents do not intend to vaccinate.  Unfortunately, that appears to be what happened in this case.

Why Congressman Joe Barton Must Resign Immediately

I wish that I had never seen the nude photo of U.S. Representative Joe Barton that is circulating around the Internet like wildfire.  It is a photo that he took of himself and sent to a woman that he was not married to, and even though his private area is censored in the photo, it is still one of the most horrifying things that I have ever seen.  I am not going to share that photo in this article, and I very highly suggest that you do not go looking for it.  Joe Barton has already admitted that he took this photo of himself, and this type of behavior is completely unacceptable for a sitting member of Congress.  Barton must resign, and he must resign immediately.

Since 1997, 264 Cases Of Sexual Harassment In Congress Have Been Settled For A Total Of $17,250,854

We finally have the official numbers, and they aren’t pretty. Reid Wilson, a correspondent for the Hill, has posted to Twitter a year by year breakdown of sexual harassment settlements and awards that he received from the Congressional Office of Compliance.  I went ahead and added up each column, and what I discovered is that 264 cases of sexual harassment in Congress have been settled since 1997, and the total amount awarded in those settlements comes to a grand total of $17,250,854.

Another Reason To Drain The Swamp: Sexual Harassment Is Rampant In The Halls Of Congress

Did you know that the House of Representatives has paid out $15,000,000 to victims of sexual harassment in recent years?  I am going to share some things with you in this article that are deeply disturbing, but it is for a purpose.  The status quo is not acceptable in Washington, and once people truly understand how deep the corruption runs I believe that they will get motivated to finally drain the swamp once and for all.  So yes, I am going to share some things in this article that are truly disgusting, but the goal is to show you that it is time to take our government back from the corrupt career politicians that are completely and utterly out of control.

The Internet Crackdown Begins: U.S. Senator Al Franken Wants Google, Facebook And Twitter To Censor Political Speech

Are the days of the free and open Internet numbered?  The Internet is certainly used for all sorts of horrible things, but it has also allowed ordinary people to communicate on a mass scale that would have been unimaginable decades ago.  In the old days, if you wanted to reach large audiences of people with your information you always had to go through corporate gatekeepers.  But today, anyone with an Internet connection can literally broadcast whatever they want to say to the whole world.  Personally, my wife and I have always been amazed at how many people we are able to touch all over the planet from our little home in the mountains.  Over the past seven years our websites have been viewed more than 100 million times, and we receive emails about our work from people all over the globe.

The Republican Party Just Got A Major League Wake Up Call

Tuesday night was a major shock for millions of Republicans, but it shouldn’t have been.  I have been warning for months that Democrats were raising lots of money and had more energy and enthusiasm on their side, and it showed.  From coast to coast Republicans got trounced, and if we don’t get our act together we are going to get killed in the 2018 mid-term elections.  Last November, we witnessed the greatest miracle in the history of U.S. politics, and afterwards millions of conservatives promptly went to sleep.  That was a tragic mistake, because we are literally in a battle for the future of America, and at the moment the Democrats have the momentum.
