Ted Cruz: Senate Dems, Led By Schumer, Want to ‘Repeal the First Amendment’ This Year

Don't think the 2nd Amendment is the only one under attack. nation.foxnews.com:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told attendees at a Family Research Council pastors retreat that Democrats wanted to limit free speech through amending the Constitution.
“When you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” Cruz said at the FRC’s Watchmen on the Wall 2014 event in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “This year, I’m sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment.”

Calling these “perilous, perilous times,” Cruz said Senate Democrats have said they are ready to vote on the amendment, Senate Joint Resolution 19 – “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.”

“Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech, because elected officials have decided they don’t like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done,” he said.

“God” Replaced With “Peace” In Pledge of Allegiance

From redstate.com:

“One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

For the past few years, this line in the Pledge of Allegiance has caused an increasing amount of debate among Americans. Despite this debate, 85% of Americans still believe that “under God” should be kept in the Pledge, while only 8% do not. Forget the lawsuits, conflict, and uproar, saying that controversial line at schools daily is still part of the law.

Unfortunately, a Madison, Wisconsin high school has decided to go against that law over the past couple months.

Just last month, Samantha Murphy, a brave high school junior at Madison East High School, emailed me. In her freshman year, Madison East did not offer the Pledge every morning. Her family decided to talk to the principal and school board, reminding them that it is a state law to offer the Pledge every day. They pointed out Wisconsin State Statute Chapter 118, Section 6, which states “Every public school shall offer the pledge of allegiance or the national anthem in grades one to 12 each school day.”

"Lunch lady said I can’t pray," 5-year-old tells her parents

Found at bizpacreview.com:

Imagine hearing this story from your 5-year-old when you ask her how her day was in kindergarten.

Kudos to these parents for staying calm and teaching this little girl that she can pray absolutely anywhere she wants.

Marcos Perez posted the touching video on You Tube with the following explanation:

My wife and I were shocked when our 5-year-old daughter began to tell us that someone on staff at her school saw her praying – told her to stop – and said “it is not good”. This is Kindergarten. She was praying to herself for her food, following the biblical values we are working hard to instill in our children. We are so proud of our little princess and as you can see – we continue to affirm her that prayer IS GOOD and that NO ONE can tell her she can’t pray. No doubt we will homeschool going forward.

We live in the United States of America – the land of the free, yet our traditional values and religious freedoms are under assault. This is just a small example.

Update on Idaho Campus Carry SB 1254

2014-03-12 SB 1254 Signed into law by Governor Otter, to take effect July 1, 2014.


SB 1254 made it out of Senate State Affairs committee and the full Senate.  It has gone to the House where it sits in their State Affairs committee.  I am still hoping this passes and is signed into law.


2014-02-26: Recently an email was sent out by the university administration to all students, faculty, and staff.  It was, as could be expected, very critical of the bill.  I'm no lawyer, but I had some issues with the text of the message and respectfully disagree on a number of points.  Excerpts from that email are below.

This bill permits those with certain permits to carry concealed weapons on campus except in residence halls and in public entertainment facilities with seating capacity of 1000 or more. Naturally, folks are focusing on this being about concealed weapons being allowed on campus. But under Idaho law, anyone with a concealed carry permit can also openly carry a weapon.

The "Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms without Infringement" Act

Piers Morgan is a tool. Apparently OK State Senator Nathan Dahm thinks so too. Found at misguidedchildren.com:

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma - State Senator Nathan Dahm of Oklahoma has recently proposed a new and very controversial firearm legislation named after CNN’s Piers Morgan. The bill is titled “The Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms without Infringement Act”, and, if passed, would allow law-abiding citizens of the state to carry both open and concealed firearms without a license or background check. Under the law, carrying guns into designated “gun-free zones” such as schools, government buildings, and other facilities would still be prohibited. The weapon would also have to remain inside a holster or some other type of sling or case designed to carry the weapon in public.
