Tom DeWeeseA little over one year ago I sponsored the Freedom Action National Conference at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania on August 12-14. It turned out to be an historic gathering, because this was the event that essentially sparked the current national firestorm against the UN’s Agenda 21. Here activists from around the nation heard from the foremost Agenda 21 experts about why this United Nations’ policy is such a threat to American society. And from this event, those activists returned home, inspired to take on the battle to oust such policy from their local communities.

The idea that the United States is unique among the world’s nations has been recognized by many historians and ordinary citizens who sense our exceptionalism without fully knowing its genesis. That is why we have been such a strong magnet for immigrants. All they know about us is that we are the land of opportunity, a free country. Freedom is the main theme of our being. Indeed, freedom has made us the richest and most advanced nation in history.

Chip WoodUntil recently, I have not been John Boehner’s biggest fan. For years, I thought the Congressman from my native state of Ohio was, at best, wishy-washy. His voting record until two years ago put him squarely in the moderate camp, and his leadership in the House didn’t inspire a lot of confidence.

Tony Blankley’s recent column, “Politics Turns Dangerously Rougher,” reflects my own thinking on where all of this conflict between the socialist left and pro-Constitution Tea-Party right is headed. Since the history of socialism is rife with revolutionary violence, and undoubtedly socialist Obama knows that history well, I have feared that the present conflict may be leading us to civil violence. The words of labor leader Hoffa at the Labor Day celebration in Detroit had a dangerous ring. Blankley writes:

I received a very interesting comment on my recent article, "The Great Brain Robbery," in which I tried to convey the damage that is being done daily in our elementary schools by teachers who have been so badly miseducated that they have no idea that the teaching methods they are using can cause untold damage to a child’s ability to use his or her mind effectively for the rest of his or her life.
