Good morning  In 2015, one of the hottest battles we had was to trying to REPEAL Common Core. Legislators had ‘gotten the word’ from parents and some teachers and the battle was enjoined.

If you have been a subscriber for very long, you probably followed the biggest, most difficult battle TN Eagle Forum ever had. It was the passing of the 2018 bill that PROHIBITED Sanctuary Cities in Tennessee.

While everyone sleeps, the courts are abolishing all immigration enforcement

on June 6, 2019, 10:30 AM / in National News

Congress could never get away with creating constitutional rights for illegal aliens to remain here, yet a single lower court just did so on Thursday. And where Congress would face deep reprisal in the next election, faceless judges will never feel the heat. Conservatives fear that extreme Democrats might actually abolish ICE and all immigration enforcement, but the lower courts […]

New SAT ‘Adversity Score’ Turns American Meritocracy Into a Sham

Commentary: The New Social Contract We Must Reject

on May 14, 2019, 8:13 AM / in Opinion

By Bruce P. Frohnen and Ted V. McAllister  |   Tennessee Star America’s public life is disordered; our discourse toxic. Competing lists of scandals and abuses (calls for impeachment, “nuclear options,” attacks on free speech, and so on) are long and shop-worn—and often miss the real issue that something profound, systemic, and dangerous has happened to our nation. A hostile ideology […]
