A recent op-ed published in the Baltimore Sun accused the United States Naval Academy of “defying the Constitution — specifically the First Amendment.”
Members of both parties in the House and Senate chambers of Congress — including Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — have strongly condemned President Obama for flouting the War Powers Act as the nation's war effort against Libya passes its 60th day.
In response to President Obama�s announcement that he supports Palestinian demands to redraw the Israeli borders to the pre-1967 parameters, Representative Allen West (R-Fla., pictured) declared that Obama�s endorsement of that policy �could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.�

The Republican-controlled legislature of Tennessee has become the latest in a growing number of states to tackle public-employees unions. On May 19, its House of Representatives voted 59 to 39 to remove from teachers' unions significant collective bargaining rights. Though the bill does not affect bargaining for pay or benefits, it does take away the right to bargain on issues such as job performance, classroom assignments, and bonus pay.

“If we are not even free anymore to decide something as basic as what we wish to eat or drink, how much freedom do we really have left?” asked Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) in his May 16 Texas Straight Talk.
Paul was referring to the Food and Drug Administration’s ban on the interstate sale of raw milk — milk that has not been pasteurized. The FDA believes raw milk is unsafe because it “can carry dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, which are responsible for causing numerous foodborne illnesses.” The agency also claims that raw milk is no more healthful than pasteurized milk.
Congressman Ron Paul issued a blistering critique of President Obama's recent proposal for Israel to surrender its territory to pre-1967 borders and create a Palestinian state.
When GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich called Barack Obama a “food stamp president,” he was charged with using “racially-tinged language.” Of course, Gingrich’s assertions had nothing to do with race and everything to do with the 47 million Americans currently receiving food stamps, including Michigan's $2 million lottery winner Leroy Fick, who asserts that he will continue to collect food stamps despite his winnings, and is permitted to do so under the current system.
The U.S. Supreme Court has dismissed the latest legal challenge of noted atheist Michael Newdow (left) to religious wording in government business, “refusing to hear a complaint about President Barack Obama adding ‘so help me God’ to his inaugural oath of office,” reported the Associated Press. On May 16 the High Court opted not to consider an appeal from Newdow, “who argued that government references to God are unconstitutional and infringe on his religious beliefs,” added the AP writer.
