What Does Michael Peroutka Really Believe About Secession?

According to the Baltimore Sun, GOP nominee for the Anne Arundel County Council Michael Peroutka told Steve Schuh, a GOP candidate running for Anne Arundel County executive, that he does not believe in Southern secession from the union. However, in a 2012 speech (starting at 26 minutes) to the white separatist group, League of the South, Peroutka spoke favorably about secession: I don't disagree with Dr. Hill [League of the South president] at all that this regime is beyond reform, and I think … [Read more...]

In Georgia’s 10th District, David Barton is Again an Issue

This week, GOP voters in Georgia's 10th District will decide which candidate, Jody Hice or Mike Collins, will face the Democrat nominee in the Fall. Richard Zimdars, a columnist for the Athens Banner-Herald, watched the two candidates debate and for at least two reasons decided that Collins might be the better choice.

The Institute on the Constitution’s Imaginary Constitution

IOTCSpheres

On the Institute on the Constitution's Facebook page, the following image was posted on July 12:The IOTC teachers Michael Peroutka and David Whitney believe that government has no role in the areas listed under family and church in this image above.

Hobby Lobby will be scrutinized widely and my purpose here is to put some links together on the decision.In a 5-4 decision, the "Court holds that the government can’t require closely held corporations with religious owners to provide contraception coverage, though the government may provide that coverage itself." The decision is a narrow rejection of the contraceptive requirement and does not invalidate other aspects of Obamacare.A pdf of the opinion is here.Follow c … [Read more...]

The Voice of the Voiceless (sic) Campaign: Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right

Subtitle: Conservatives Against Crazy Therapies #savethepillows (see video below).Right wing website The College Fix misses the point in an article published last Friday (6/20).The assumption on the part of Chris Doyle and author Claire Healey seems to be that incorrect information provided by college counseling or resource centers should lead to the addition of more incorrect information at those same centers.
