Speech Suppression is Habit-Forming
Speech suppression is a habit that the Biden administration and its liberal supporters can't seem to break. Many staffers may have picked up the habit in their student years: Colleges and universities have been routinely censoring "politically incorrect" speech for the last 30 years. As Thomas Sowell noted, "There are no institutions in America where free speech is more severely restricted than in our politically correct colleges and universities, dominated by liberals."

By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.24.21
The iconic, famously woke ice cream company, Ben & Jerry’s, announced on Monday that it will no longer sell its product in “Occupied Palestinian Territory.” As the company explained, “We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).” However, they added, “Although Ben & Jerry’s will no longer be sold in the OPT, we will stay in Israel through a different arrangement.”
Porn Star Rightly Kicked Out of Conservative Political Event
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.23.21
Many self-identifying Republicans have no understanding of the term “conservatism.” Case in point, the recent kerfuffle that ensued when conservative leaders of the Turning Point USA organization rightfully revoked an invitation to porn star “Brandi Love” to attend the Student Action Summit as a VIP. Love was asked to leave the event intended for high school and college students after attendees found out what she does for a living. To be clear, Love, who self-identifies as “conservative,” is not a former porn star. She is a current porn star who heartily affirms pornography.

As Brazilian lawmakers worked to recognize and legitimize home education, which has been wildly successful in the United States for decades, senior United Nations “education” bureaucrat Italo Dutra warned that homeschooling threatens “harm to children and adolescents.”
They Said There Was No Slippery Slope, But This Teen Says Otherwise
About two years ago, the popular animated kids show Arthur, broke boundaries when the show’s writers decided the teacher, a regular character on the show, was homosexual. Needless to say, this garnered mixed reviews, some praising the decision, saying Arthur was breaking social norms and introducing children to a very important topic, while other, more rational, people said they did not want a show meant for four to eight-year-olds to discuss such a sensitive topic.
The Time for School Choice Is Past Due
By Dr. Jerry Newcombe   |   07.17.21
An old story tells of a big, successful store with a plaque in the employees’ lounge which read: “Rule #1. The customer’s always right. Rule #2. If you ever think the customer is wrong, reread Rule #1.” I bring this...
Radical Transgender Activism Is Proof Positive that We Have Lost Our Corporate Minds
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   07.16.21
Just think of the upside down world in which we live today. Women and girls are relaxing in a California spa when a man walks in, naked and fully exposed, in full view of these mothers and daughters. Yet when a complaint is issued, the spa, along with the editorial board of the Los Angeles Times editorial board, defend the man. Do we need any more proof that we have lost our corporate minds?
Words for Those Lost in Sexual Darkness
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.15.21
I write often about homosexuality and “trans”-cultism because there are no more serious threats to fundamental speech rights and religious liberty than the efforts to use public education, the law, Big Business, Big Tech, the mainstream news media, and the arts to normalize homosexuality and gender confusion.
