US Constitution

Ed And Elaine Brown

By Doug Powers for WorldNetDaily very now and again, one hears of people being interviewed who believe federal income taxes are constitutionally invalid, and, as a result, they refuse to pay them. My first thought is usually "have fun in prison," but recent statements and proposals from some of our politicians have led me to believe that this is a cause worth fighting for. Enter Ed Brown and Elaine Brown, New Hampshire residents who don't believe in paying income taxes. As a result, the Browns have been sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison and ordered to pay more than $200,000...

Islam In American Classrooms

Thanks to Brigitte Gabriel for sending us this piece authored by Adrian Morgan: he First Amendment to the US federal constitution was drafted in 1789, and was ratified by the States in 1791.

Ugliness By Peaceniks, Again

ATE SPEECH OR FREE expression of ideas? Depends on which goal line you are defending. As we know here at the Project, both teams, each with their funny-looking uniforms and logos can dip rich and rude into the smear jar, using all sorts of unsportsmanlike conduct to further their objectives. But the Left seems especially gifted in this area, although admittedly the Right often comes off far too smug in resting on its amnesiac laurels for the common man to stomach. So here we go again... Violence erupted at a Michigan law school last week when protestors tried to block...
