Living In An Updated World

By David Heddendorf| Mr. Munson owned a 1966 Mustang convertible that he bought after seeing an ad in the local paper. All his friends congratulated him on an excellent deal. He loved his Mustang for its looks and for the way it drove, but he didn’t know anything about vintage cars. He kept his Mustang in a special garage in his yard and took it out several times a year.

What American Schools Should Teach About Race, Racism, and Slavery

By Dennis Prager | Regarding race and much else, America’s students are not taught history. In fact, they are not taught; they are indoctrinated. With anti-Americanism. The purpose of all teaching about race in American schools is to engender contempt for America. They are, therefore, “taught” the lies of The New York Times’ 1619 Project—that the United States was founded to…

More Facts About Illegal Voting by Non-Citizens

By James D. Agresti  | In an effort to combat racial discrimination the San Diego Unified School District last week announced plans to abolish the traditional grading system, Fox News reports. A “fact check” by USA Today is defaming a Ph.D.-vetted study by Just Facts that found non-citizens may have cast enough illegal votes for Joe Biden to overturn the lawful election results in some key battleground states….
