Wheaton College Embracing Ayers'-Style Radicalism?

By Rick Pearcey • February 26, 2010, 01:11 PM

Radio talk show host Sandy Rios writes:

Imagine the dismay of many to learn that, in an effort to educate its students, Wheaton has moved to the left, so much so that in a survey by the Wheaton Record, 60 percent of its faculty voted for President Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion, pro-homosexual agenda, spiritually confused president the nation has ever elected.

"A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans, according to a new national poll," reports CNN.

"Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens."

Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine -- YouTube Sensation

By Rick Pearcey • February 25, 2010, 01:54 PM

"On the eve of the Obama administration's most aggressive push yet to pass a national health care plan, a 50-year-old audio recording of Ronald Reagan speaking out against 'socialized medicine' has become a huge YouTube sensation," reports Fox News.

"Nearly 1 million viewers have watched the video, in which the late president, speaking before he became California governor, warns that government intervention in the health care system creates a slippery slope." Here's the video.

NCAA Yanks Focus on the Family Ad

By Rick Pearcey • February 25, 2010, 09:55 AM

AP reports:

Weeks after scoring a publicity coup with a 30-second Super Bowl ad featuring Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow, conservative Christian group Focus on the Family is at the center of another marketing tug-of-war -- this time involving the major governing body of college sports. 

The National Collegiate Athletic Association removed a Focus on the Family banner ad from one of its Web sites this week, NCAA spokesman Bob Williams said Wednesday.

The NCAA made the decision after some of its members   -- including faculty and athletic directors -- expressed concern that the evangelical group's stance against gay and lesbian relationships conflicted with the NCAA's policy of inclusion regardless of sexual orientation, Williams said.

The NCAA's groveling obedience to political correctness is a pro-homosexist anti-family attack -- and yet another reason for millions of free-thinking Americans to rise up in loving rebellion to declare their God-given and Creator-based independence against secular tyranny masking itself as personal liberation.

Florida School Prayer Order "Blatantly Unconstitutional"

By Rick Pearcey • February 24, 2010, 10:36 AM

"Liberty Counsel is representing Christian Educators Association International (CEAI) in a lawsuit against the Santa Rosa County School District after a federal judge denied CEAI's request to overturn a consent decree requiring faculty and staff to stop expressing their faith in public schools," reports Bill Bumpas at OneNewsNow.

This federal judge apparently understands neither the U.S. Constitution nor the concrete, public nature of Christian "faith."

Nothing in the Constitution, Declaration, or Bill of Rights gives a local school the power or authority to tell teachers and students to shut up and sit down when it comes to matters of the free exercise of the Christian faith. The 1st Amendment places limits on the Congress, not on the people. It's high time Congress, courts, and schools listen to not just "we the people" but to "we the people" endowed by our Creator with "certain unalienable rights," etc., etc.

Moreover, nothing in the data of the verifiable information we have in the Bible reduces "faith" to subjective feelings and private prayer closets from which there is no escape. What we have instead is a logically coherent worldview rooted in history, verified in space and time, and able to be practiced in the real world. The God of the Bible is very much a public figure, and those who affirm living in liberating community with our Creator get to do that everywhere, even in the schools.

Biblical "faith" is a matter of wholistic trust based on good and sufficient reasons, not a matter of private epistemology pushed aside and hidden away in some corner. We as individuals and communities ought to resist and reject this regressive pie-in-the-sky secularism imposed by judges foisting their private agendas upon the clear meaning of the texts of the founding documents.

Homosexuals at CPAC: The Perils of Regress

By Rick Pearcey • February 24, 2010, 07:36 AM

The attendance of an openly homosexual group at CPAC 2010 helped Ron Paul win the presidential straw poll, writes Lisa Fabrizio at American Spectator.

"But far from anointing Ron Paul as their presidential nominee of choice," she explains, "the most indicative effect of including gays was this result from the poll: while the great majority of respondents named reducing the size of government as the most important goal of conservatism, only nine per cent cited the promotion of 'traditional values.' Scary stuff when you realize that the former is impossible without the latter for our particular constitutional republic."

Fabrizio cautions: "A smaller government that is not based on the moral underpinnings of our founders would have been just as repulsive to them as a larger one that is. As John Adams said, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other."

Breitbart vs. Blumenthal and His Vicious Alinsky Tactics

By Rick Pearcey • February 23, 2010, 08:59 AM

Lee Doren writes at Big Journalism: "While some people debate the merits of the current healthcare legislation in Congress, or attempt to expose corruption in our government, Max Blumenthal instead engages in character assassination using the most questionable sources."

Here is video that "summarizes Blumenthal’s Alinsky tactics and highlights clips from the most recent CPAC where he continues his viciousness," Doren writes. "As Andrew Breitbart wondered, what does Blumenthal really stand for, if it isn’t for destroying people’s lives?"

Stossel: Education Too Important for a Government Monopoly

By Rick Pearcey • February 19, 2010, 08:06 AM

John Stossel explains why the government monopoly over education needs to be broken and that parents, even poor parents, are just the people to do it.

Stossel writes:

Parents care about their kids and want them to learn and succeed -- even poor parents. Thousands line up hoping to get their kids into one of the few hundred lottery-assigned slots at Harlem Success Academy, a highly ranked charter school in New York City. Kids and parents cry when they lose.

Yet the establishment is against choice. The union demonstrated outside Harlem Success the first day of school. And President Obama killed Washington, D.C.'s voucher program.

This is typical of elitists, who believe that parents, especially poor ones, can't make good choices about their kids' education.

Is that so? Ask James Tooley about that (http://tinyurl.com/ydgln9z). Tooley is a professor of education policy who spends most of every year in some of the poorest parts of Africa, India and China. For 10 years, he's studied how poor kids do in "free" government schools and -- hold on -- private schools. That's right. In the worst slums, private for-profit schools educate kids better than the government's schools do. (emphasis added)

"Saved or Created" -- Obama's Misleading Jobs Rhetoric

By Rick Pearcey • February 17, 2010, 09:13 AM

"There he goes again," begins an editorial at the Washington Examiner. "In the latest Economic Report of the President, Obama repeats his claim that the $787 billion economic stimulus program 'has saved or created roughly two million jobs so far.'

"Administration officials stopped saying that last year after journalists and think tankers across the political spectrum examined the supporting data posted on the official recovery.gov Web site and found it full of factual holes."

Science Crime: A Recent History

By Rick Pearcey • February 16, 2010, 02:48 PM

Jef Akst writes at TheScientist:

Last Friday, biology professor Amy Bishop shocked the country when she allegedly shot and killed three of her colleagues at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, purportedly motivated by the university's recent decision to deny her tenure. Although certainly one of the most heinous crimes in recent memory, it is by no means the first criminal offense to disturb the scientific community.

Akst then provides a "timeline of some disquieting events from the last few years."

Dutch May Create Suicide Professionals to Help Over-70s

By Rick Pearcey • February 16, 2010, 02:24 PM

BioEdge reports:

"Wanted: nurse or spiritual caretaker in possession of a Completed Life Certificate to assist suicides."

If a group of elderly grandees in the Netherlands calling itself "Out of Free Will" succeeds with its plan for decriminalizing assisted suicide, job advertisements like this will be appearing in the newspapers.

"It is the animal kingdom, in its full 'Glory'," comments Br. Casimiro Kuypers. "The next step would be: If you cannot work any more, you should be disposed of in a medical acceptable way. It is the nazi doctrine of 'lebensunwertes Leben' ["life unworthy of life"] to the full."

Democrats Dropping Like Flies

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann write at Newsmax:

Enter Coats. Exit Bayh. Bye, bye, Bayh!

The first time Evan Bayh gets a serious race for re-election, he quits!

The Scott Brown victory is still rippling through the House and the Senate, causing retirements among committed, dedicated, long-term liberal Democrats. Seeing voter anger, they are heading for the hills.

If present trends continue, will new GOP faces on the Hill signal a real shift toward the constitutional republic so brilliantly designed by the Founding Fathers?

Or does this indicate a momentary surge of "voter anger" to be followed by rearranging the deck chairs on the U.S.S. Titanic?

Nation's Top Conservatives to Sign Philosophical Declaration of War Against Big Government

By Rick Pearcey • February 16, 2010, 07:56 AM

Fred Lucas reports at CNSNews.com:

The nation's top conservative leaders will gather Wednesday at Collingwood in Alexandria, Va. -- a property that was once the site of George Washington’s River Farm -- to sign a document organizers are calling the Mount Vernon Statement. It is designed to signal that a united and resurgent conservative movement is declaring philosophical war against the big government and moral relativism advanced by the nation’s liberal cultural, academic and political establishments.

The statement emphatically says no to the type of "change" pushed by political leaders who ignore the Constitution's limits on government power.

"In recent decades, America’s principles have been undermined and redefined in our culture, our universities and our politics," says an excerpt from the statement. "The self-evident truths of 1776 have been supplanted by the notion that no such truths exist. The federal government today ignores the limits of the Constitution, which is increasingly dismissed as obsolete and irrelevant." . . .

Meatless Mondays to Fight Climate "Emergency"?

"Going green will not be optional in Cambridge, Mass., if the Cambridge Climate Congress [CCC] has its way," reports Joshua Rhett Miller at Fox News. "It will be mandatory." 

Among the proposals from the CCC: "There will be congestion pricing to reduce car travel. Curbside parking will be eliminated. There will be a carbon tax 'of some kind,' not to mention taxes on plastic and paper bags. And the Massachusetts city, home of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will advocate vegetarianism and veganism, complete with 'Meatless or Vegan Mondays'."

Spiritual Dimensions of National Survival

By Rick Pearcey • February 10, 2010, 08:04 AM

Herbert London writes at Human Events:

I’ve said this before but no matter how many times it is said, it bears repeating: the threats that the United States face from a fanatical Islamic foe are made possible by our devotion to positions that undermine our heritage, accomplishments and founding. . . .

Our vulnerability does not stem from a lack of resources or even inept leadership, but rather from a void that emanates from not knowing what we believe. Our real enemy is a lack of confidence, of not believing in our own national achievements.

Arnold Toynbee argued that civilizations die as a result of suicide, not murder. I am not yet willing to concede death, but there isn’t any doubt that America is at risk because of a loss of self-confidence. What ails us internally is at least as threatening as the forces found externally.

Tea Party Success Forces Media to Show Some Respect

By Rick Pearcey • February 9, 2010, 07:29 AM

"The mainstream media (MSM) spent the last year treating the Tea Party movement as if it were a cancer on the body politic, not an organic outcry from a citizenry that had enough," writes Christian Toto at Human Events. "That was before the movement helped elect three GOP candidates -- particularly Scott Brown's stunning takeover of the so-called Ted Kennedy seat in Massachusetts."

But "now, the MSM knows better than to tar and feather tea partiers -- or use a derogatory sexual term to describe them," Toto continues. "Instead, the press treated this weekend's premiere National Tea Party Convention in Nashville as it would anything else outside its liberal bubble -- with grudging respect mixed with mudslinging."

Why Palin Speaking at Tea Party Convention

By Rick Pearcey • February 4, 2010, 04:10 PM

This Is Good:

I thought long and hard about my participation in this weekend's event. At the end of the day, my decision came down to this: It's important to keep faith with people who put a little bit of their faith in you. Everyone attending this event is a soldier in the cause. Some of them will be driving hundreds of miles to Nashville. I made a commitment to them to be there, and I am going to honor it.

But participation won't be limited to those in Nashville who have a ticket. It's much bigger than that. Because the Tea Party movement is spread out across the country — with no central offices or annual events — this is an opportunity to connect with like-minded folks. Yes, there will be speeches given in a room in Nashville. But we'll also be speaking with thousands of Americans watching online at twitter.com/SarahPalinUSA, or through various news outlets. And the conversation will continue on my Facebook page.

This Is Even Better:

My only goal is to support the grassroots activists who are fighting for responsible, limited government — and our Constitution. In that spirit, any compensation for my appearance will go right back to the cause. [emphasis added]

Feminists Tied in Knots Over Tebow Ad

By Rick Pearcey • February 4, 2010, 08:00 AM

Jane Chastain writes at WorldNetDaily:

Radical feminist groups have been burning up the airwaves and chewing up newsprint in an effort to persuade CBS to reconsider its decision to air a 30-second spot during the Super Bowl featuring football star Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam, called "Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life" . . . .

Feminist groups are tying themselves in knots over this ad and the reason couldn't be more obvious. They claim to be "pro-choice," so why not simply celebrate Pam Tebow's choice?

These feminist spokespersons are afraid to attack Tim Tebow or his mother directly. Instead, they attack Focus on the Family, a group that promotes adoption and pregnancy help centers that offer tangible help to women with crises pregnancies.

Don't Fall for "Pro-Choice" Ploy on Tebow Super Bowl Ad

By Rick Pearcey • February 3, 2010, 11:59 AM

"After CBS agreed to run a Super Bowl commercial featuring Tim Tebow, several feminist and pro-choice groups rose up in protest against the ad, calling on the network to pull it," reports Casey Curlin in a story titled "Liberals Tackle Groups Trying to Sideline Ad" at the Washington Times.

"Now, however," reports Curlin, "even some liberals are calling those attacks misguided, saying the choice to give birth to an unborn child is also part of pro-choice beliefs."

In other words, as long as the "pro-choice" premise that allows members of one class of humanity (pregnant women) to decide whether members of another class of humanity (preborn citizens of the United States) live or die, so-called liberals are supposed to happy. And "conservatives," too, I suppose.

Independently minded people should not fall for this ploy. Why? Because the pro-life position is not a "private belief" but an ethical fact. And for this reason, compassion requires revolt against any kind of self-styled "progressive" inhumanity imposed upon individuals currently residing in mothers' wombs across the land.

Human life, created in the image of a verifiable and knowable Creator, has intrinsic and objective value. And although liquidating innocent life under the banner of "choice" or "reproductive rights" has been an effective PR campaign in a society dehumanized by secular thoughtforms, its cruelty and inhumanity remain self-evident truths to any thinking person whose eyes are not blinded by pretheoretical ideological commitments.

Tim Tebow and his mother are to be commended for publicly affirming what is at the heart of the mission statement of the United States of America: That human beings have been "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights," and "that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," states the Declaration of Independence.

Tim and his mother have made a personal choice, but the content of their choice is anything but private: It affirms a universal truth that appies to all people and across all cultures.

By the same token, the "pro-choice" position isn't just "private." It's wrong and inhumane in its public consequences (50 million dead, and counting), and no free-thinking and responsible person ought to allow his or her life to suffer under the impositions of any such barbarism masquerading as emancipation. 

And, by the way, the Super Bowl is a great place to draw a bright line of distinction between "pro-choice" barbarism and that brotherhood of humanity that extends even to "the least of these." In the fight for life and freedom against death and tryanny, the real choice could hardly be more basic. In this contest of light over darkness, it's either win or die: If humanity wins, kids live and get to see the light of day. We're pulling for the home team.

Trustworthy But Betrayed S.C. 1st Lady Jenny Sanford Releasing "Staying True"

By Rick Pearcey • February 2, 2010, 10:20 AM

Jan Taylor, a friend of South Carolina First Lady Jenny Sanford, looks forward to reading Staying True, a memoir detailing the "private ordeal behind her very public betrayal" (see product description at Amazon) by husband and Gov. Mark Sanford, who was having an affair with a woman from Argentina.

Taylor writes:

I have known Jenny for 14 years. I have not read the manuscript but have been in weekly contact as she labored over the contents. The way she lives her life, and has lived her life, gives credence to the book she would produce.

Any traveler know that where there is much darkness, a "lamplighter" is invaluable. One wants this particular lamplighter, Jenny Sanford, to be filled with honesty, integrity, probity, and with a generous portion of empathy and truth.

Jenny Sanford is to be trusted because of the path that she has trod and the serious thought, prayer, and intellect that accompanied her as she walked.

AP reports that Barbara Walters will air an interview with Jenny Sanford this Thursday evening on ABC's "20/20." Staying True officially goes on sale Friday.

Andrzejewski's Tea Party Army vs. "Redcoats" in GOP Illinois Primary

By Rick Pearcey • February 1, 2010, 07:13 AM

"Adam Andrzejewski refers to his opponents in the Illinois Republican primary as 'the Redcoats,' while calling his own grassroots campaign for governor 'the ragtag army'," writes Robert Stacy McCain at American Spectator.

"Revolutionary War metaphors come easily for Andrzejewski, whose showing Tuesday in Illinois will provide an early test of the ability of Tea Party activists to deliver votes in Republican primaries during this year's mid-term campaign."
