Christianity in the Classroom?

bible-verse-620x391 We're told by progressives and many public educators that God, specifically the Judeo-Christian God of the Bible, has no place in the classroom.

False Premises of “I’ll Do It Myself”

obama-signing2 Barack Obama has repeatedly threatened that if Congress doesn't give him his way on immigration and bailouts and Obamacare, he'll just do it himself.  After all, he's got a pen and a phone.

John Boehner: “We have a system of government outlined in our Constitution” But I won’t follow it Concerning Impeachment of Barack Obama

John-Boehner For many, it came as no surprise when CNSnews.com reported that House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) "disagreed" with Sarah Palin's call for Obama's impeachment. Boehner would rather have the House of Representatives file a lawsuit against Obama aimed at "forcing" this president to "faithfully execute the law." Impeachment has been tabled by Boehner because […]
