A Warning for Parents
By Micah Clark   |   11.07.23
We hear a lot about fentanyl deaths in America today due in large part to our open southern border. One of the saddest parts of this crisis is the number of young people who die from overdoses, by accident from taking what appear to be other drugs or medicines that are laced with this lethal drug.
Horribly Lopsided

For several decades there have been numerous studies of media bias or party affiliation. The results probably won’t surprise you since the media often sounds the same as Democrat talking points.  Generally, journalists who are Democrats outnumber journalists who are Republicans by anywhere from 5 to 1 to as much as 14 to 1 according to various studies.
A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
By Micah Clark   |   08.25.23
We live in a culture that thrives off claims of victimhood and oppression in a nation that offers more opportunity than almost another on the globe or in the history of the world.  Yet, that is not what most of our schools, media, and institutions are teaching.
Mental Health Crisis

We hear a lot about America’s mental health crisis. Many people might see evidence of this even in their own family or circle of friends. In fact, it has become such a problem that one might think that most people have mental health issues.
Society V. Nature

There is a research article from a professor of sociology and family studies, writing for the Institute for Family Studies, that looks at the social contagion of the LGBT movement. Professor Nicholas Wolfinger investigated the National Survey of Family Growth regarding sexual identity. As you may know, the percentage of people who identity with the LGBTQIA+ movement is growing, particularly among the young, but there is perhaps an overstatement within these numbers.

Support for drug decriminalization is waning among blue state residents as overdose rates, crime and homelessness continue to increase, a recent survey found.
The Growing Marriage Divide
By Micah Clark   |   10.08.22
There is no more important social institution to society than marriage. It has a host of social benefits for adults and children. The breakdown of the family is directly linked to all sorts of societal problems including crime, poverty, public health, and educational challenges. This is a reality that has been well documented for decades by social science.
Not Wanting to Speak of Gender Confusion
By Micah Clark   |   05.27.22
Summit Ministries, in partnership with McLaughlin and Associates—one of America’s most respected polling survey firms—released the results of a recent national survey regarding sexuality. Results were from a survey of 1,000 likely general election voters nationwide and was conducted April 22nd through April 26th. Unsurprisingly, a majority of respondents believe transgenderism is not a healthy human condition and oppose teaching sexual based curriculum in elementary schools.

There is an interesting national poll finding that most parents are worried about their children’s spiritual condition. The Christian polling firm led by George Barna surveyed parents with children under the age of 18 and measured their level of concern regarding their peers.
A Real Danger in the COVID Madness
By Micah Clark   |   01.22.22
There is a new poll from Rasmussen Reports that is flat-out scary. First, here is a finding that probably won’t surprise you. Americans are split evenly on President Biden’s vaccine mandate.   Roughly half (48 percent) of voters favor President Joe Biden’s plan to impose a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on employees of large companies.
So Much for the “Born this Way” Argument
By Micah Clark   |   11.18.21
A new poll from Arizona Christian University has some shocking findings regarding the indoctrination of America’s youth. For decades the percent of those who identify with the homosexual lifestyle has consistently been less than 3 percent of the population. However, the LGBT agenda has now thoroughly saturated our nation’s schools, pop culture, media, politics, and society.

By Micah Clark   |   08.25.21
There is a powerful 2-minute testimony from Derrick Wilburn speaking before a school board in Colorado Springs, CO that is making the rounds on the internet.  Mr. Wilburn’s talk is widely credited with the school board’s vote to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory in his school district.
A Significant Change in Education Demographics
By Micah Clark   |   07.29.21
The number of kids who home school is slightly lower as my two head off to college in a few weeks. However, this is certainly no dent in home education. A new report finds that even though many public schools will soon reopen for in-person instruction, the percentage of parents who are choosing to educate their children has jumped dramatically.
Tear Down this Statue, But Don’t Look Over There
By Micah Clark   |   07.06.21
I recently read a very interesting, and brave, editorial from Bill Donohue of the Catholic League. It appeared on AFA’s national news service - One News Now. He points out the contradiction in the efforts to remove statues all across America because of how the culture now views the words or actions of certain individuals which can often cloud how they are remembered today for their larger contributions.
Government Solutions – Paying More for Less
By Micah Clark   |   06.24.21
Last week many news story headlines made it sound as if the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. In reality, this moderate court again avoided taking a strong stand on a politically charged issue, and simply ruled that the Plaintiffs had no standing to bring the case.
