Common Core is an educational curriculum being forced upon the states by the Obama administration, which is scheduled to be mostly implemented this year in the 46 states that have adopted it. Common Core eliminates local control over K-12…Continue

Ok, I’m guessing that most, if not all, of you had a moment of “Huh?” after reading the title.
I’m a Christian (at least I try to be) and I also am getting really tired of the Christian bashing special interest shrillness going on and being sanctioned, if not promoted, by government, industry, the education system, etc.
But we’ve been warned. (No, this is not a scripture lesson, but…
In recent years it seems that much is has been made of “presidential libraries”. The concept was founded and enacted into law in 1939 by none other than – you guessed it – the Democrat, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who apparently couldn’t get enough of himself and wished to have his correspondence deified in its own refuge, separate from the tawdry and common trash associated the with the bulk of the national archives and the Library of Congress. ( Read more about its forming here:…Continue
Timothy Birdnow In a recent article at American Thinker Elise Cooper argued for new programs and more school involvement to reduce bullying. As she rightly points out bullying is on the rise in modern America, and the temptation to turn to psychologists, schools and government is strong - even for conservatives. I fear the notion that bullying can be stopped through governmental programs is…Continue
Why Common Core?

Thank God people are waking up to the implementation by sneak attack of the Obama DOED called Common Core. After a review of common core its new label should be Commie Core since this is a 100% communist program. Let's remember, communist hate the family, God country and seek total moral decay to divert…

Having recently received the latest issue of Imprimis from Hillsdale College, coupled with Judson Philips recent posting “The Greatest American Failure,” I am feeling compelled to offer you a short (?) list of reasons why we are in desperate need of a complete overhaul of our educational system.…Continue
If you passed through any school system since the 1960s, you are a lot dumber than you think you are. Those of us educated in the 1940s and 50s learned the fundamentals of literacy, history, civics, mathematics, and science in ways that no system relentlessly devoted to “self-esteem” ever…Continue

The idea here is to hit on core points most -- not necessarily all -- conservatives can agree on, without going into special interest areas or "single-issue" appeasement at all. We should be able to unify under these basic goals:
JOB 1: Get a conservative president elected who will reverse all President Obama's executive orders upon his inauguration.
Economy – short term
Popular culture has made murder, rape, mayhem, hatred, and violence "cool"

The recent massacre at an elementary school in Connecticut (the ironically named Sandy Hook - it’s been a bad year for anything named Sandy) has, predictably, brought a chorus of calls for gun control and to double down on Progressive social reform schemes.
It appears no tragedy, no matter how horrendous, is to be allowed to “go to waste” as Rahm Emmanuel would say.…

November 6th, 2012.
Obama vs Romney. Socialism vs Capitalism. Free stuff vs Freedom. Arrogance vs Humility. Corruption vs Competence. Bigger government vs Smaller government. Community Organizer vs Successful Businessman. Appeasement vs Strength. Lies vs Integrity.

With 14 days to go until election day, Obama has finally unveiled his NEW and IMPROVED plan for the next 4 years.
The empty chair and opened an empty binder.
It’s time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. Over the…Continue

Obama hasn’t taken a shellacking like that since the 2010 midterm elections.
It was so one sided that even liberal pundits were lamenting their loss. There was no tingle running up Chris Matthew’s leg. Bill Maher tweeted: “Obama made…Continue

I have been traveling the country for the last two years, teaching people the true history of the founding of our nation. I do this because I believe two things: one, that God has placed a call on my life and two, those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.
Recently, I was able to spend two days with a room full of high school-aged, homeschooled students. It was amazing. The first day, we went through a practical exercise to teach both the difference…Continue
Back in 2001 I wrote a four-part series on “The Subversion of Education in America” and more than a decade later not much has improved. The causes are easily identified. One is federal control and the other is the National Education Association (NEA) which, despite its name, is a…Continue
Hello Tea Party Nation,
I need your help with my campaign for the Texas State Board of Education. Please go to my website and help with a donation: www.gailspurlock.com
Many states will be impacted by this election. Because of the number of textbooks that Texas orders, many other states use the same textbooks. The Texas State Board of Education recently approved revised standards for English, Science, and Social Studies. These…Continue

Why are Liberals so Lost?
I pondered this question for awhile, and the best reason , among many, I can answer why liberals are so lost, is because liberals fail to understand the basics of humanity itself. Humans, by nature, are not angels. Humans are evil in nature. One of the basic things which separate us from animals, is animals do not have the cognitive ability to subvert the thinking of its contemporaries with…Continue
