Government waste and abuse was on full display this week when Politico discovered the existence of a secret Pentagon slush fund dedicated to investigating UFOs. As it turns out, the program was started at the behest of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and most of the $22 million it spent over the course of […]


This article was originally posted at Townhall. Conservative news sources were shaken up for a few days this summer when several outlets picked up Rolling Stone Magazine’s story on Tim Gill, “Meet the Megadonor Behind the LGBTQ Rights Movement.” The greatest concern was with Gill’s pledge to “punish the wicked” by passing laws in swing and Southern […]


The House Education and Workforce Committee completed their mark-up last week of HR 4508, which they have named the Promoting Real Opportunity, Success, and Prosperity through Education Reform (PROSPER) Act. Here is an update on the data privacy implications of this bill. The good news is that the ban on a student unit-record system is […]


This article was posted originally at the Epoch Times. Normally, the concept of wealth redistribution involves government using force to take from some people and give to others. But the bitcoin revolution is redistributing wealth differently. For the sake of simplicity, and to avoid confusion, we will talk about only the original bitcoin in this article and avoid the likes […]


Today is a pretty normal Thursday in America for 2017. There’s some intense negotiating going on in Congress, some political speculation fueled by a Politico article, and some snow on the ground in many places. Just what you’d expect for a December weekday. But if you go on Reddit (which I don’t recommend, since it can be […]


This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. While the Democratic Party continues to fight for faux rights like the “right to receive a free college education,” “right to have one’s abortion paid for with tax dollars,” and “right to force Christians to […]


This article was originally posted at The American Spectator and co-authored by Emmett McGroarty, a senior fellow at the American Principles Project. In 2013 Michael Cohen of Achieve, Inc. (an organization integral to developing and marketing the Common Core national standards) testified in New York that Common Core is a long-term education experiment on our children: “The full effects… […]


Yesterday, I was extremely honored to discover that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh had featured a new ad from the Committee to Unleash Prosperity (which I am professionally affiliated with) on his show. As a longtime listener, it is absolute thrill that a project I worked on received recognition from his iconic program — but […]


In a blow to abortion providers across the country, a major U.S. medical waste company will no longer be contracting with abortion centers. Specific Waste Industries has ended all contracts with abortion centers, including its contract with EMW Women’s Surgical Center in Louisville, the very last abortion center in Kentucky. This means that the waste […]


Back in February, both Education Liberty Watch and American Principles Project warned about and submitted comments to The Federal Register opposing U.S. participation in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) latest ill-advised and invasive International Early Learning Study (IELS). This is a new scheme to extend international standardized testing, social emotional profiling, and data mining […]


This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. In her Liberty Minute titled “Flocks of Sheep,” Helen Krieble quotes a passage from Alexis de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America that is just as pertinent today as it was when it was published in 1835: […]


Bobby Schindler, brother of the late Terri Schiavo who was starved to death by a hospital under court order in 2005, says there is a legal reality that should send shivers down all our spines. According to Schindler, “it is presently legal in every state deliberately to bring about the end of a patient’s life by denying […]


There has been an incredible push in recent years to propagate “gay marriage” as a civil right. Arguments severed from nature and reason have multiplied as what is really a moral problem has been reduced to a political problem. Furthermore, the softened heads and hardened hearts in our American culture have acquiesced to the agenda, […]


Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. This case has enormous religious liberty implications nationwide. You may remember that Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colo., refused to make a custom-made wedding cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding reception in 2012. Even though they were […]


On Friday, Newsweek magazine published an article with an intriguing title: “Meet the Elon Musk of Assisted Suicide, Whose Machine Lets You Kill Yourself Anywhere.” Interviewing Dr. Philip Nitschke, the Newsweek author provides an advertisement for his new, top-of-the-line product, a “luxurious” killing machine: The Sarco is sleek—and, Nitschke stresses, luxurious. It resembles a spaceship […]


In today’s Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard discusses a fascinating new Harvard study on the political attitudes of the Millennial generation. For me, a Millennial, Harvard’s research amounts to the single-most revealing study ever undertaken on our generation. Tragically, the Washington Examiner‘s headline — “Millennials now biggest voting group in U.S., 2-1 Democratic” — buried the […]


With the Senate’s passage of Republicans’ much publicized tax reform bill, many conservatives are growing optimistic that Americans are on the verge of much needed tax relief. With the House version easily passing through that chamber last month, both sides will now go to conference to reconcile the bills and eventually send a final version […]


Alliance Defending Freedom recently announced it is suing Miami University of Ohio on behalf of the campus’ Students for Life chapter. Why? Because an administrative official required them to post “trigger warnings” prior to setting up white crosses on campus that represent all the babies aborted in the United States. Over and over again, we […]


Amidst of the ongoing battle against the surveillance state that we have chronicled with the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (FEPA), the College Transparency Act (CTA), and the regulatory gutting of the family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), there is yet another data bill that is now rearing its head. Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), […]


This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” […]
