A deeply controversial and secretive education curriculum system known as “CSCOPE,” used by more than two thirds of Texas schools, has come under heavy fire in recent weeks, with critics saying it promotes anti-Christian propaganda and so-called “progressive” values at odds with American traditions of liberty and self-government. Parents, teachers, experts, activists, and others were outraged. After lawmakers got involved, however, critics scored some partial victories against the program.

The North Dakota state Senate approved an amendment last Thursday that would protect unborn babies from the moment of conception. The proposed “personhood” amendment (SCR 4009) declares that “the inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.”

President Obama's appointment of Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) members and pro-abortion advocates to his new Global Development Council leaves little doubt that it will push population control and redistribution.

The ex-Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer accused of hunting down and murdering his former colleagues over alleged corruption, 33-year-old Christopher Jordan Dorner, released a “manifesto” online praising President Obama and the U.S. government while demanding more gun control. He also applauded a range of politicians including Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, some “moderate” Republicans, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), as well as media figures like CNN’s Anderson Cooper and extreme anti-Second Amendment zealot Piers Morgan.

As if Obama’s politicized Justice Department was not embroiled in enough scandals — Fast and Furious gun-trafficking to Mexican drug cartels, the subsequent coverup and lies, disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder held in criminal contempt of Congress, lawless “legal memos” purporting to justify assassinating U.S. citizens without charge or trial, training police to believe Americans may be terrorists for political activism, and more — there is now yet another travesty to add to the growing list. Documents released recently exposed the department working intimately with one of the most controversial extremist groups in America.

While many constitutionalists and Republicans took heart at the courage of various Republican state governors in refusing to implement ObamaCare in their states, a few of those same state executives are now embracing the government-run medical care plan and abandoning their former firm resolve to stand up for the rights of their citizens and the sovereignty of their states.

As state lawmakers all across America craft nullification legislation to defy unconstitutional federal gun-control schemes and sheriffs openly vow to protect the Second Amendment regardless of what Obama or Congress say, municipal and county governments are getting involved in the action, too. In fact, in recent weeks, several local governments have unanimously approved ordinances and resolutions nullifying any and all lawless restrictions on gun rights.

As the Obama administration and Congress continue to rack up trillions of dollars in debt while the Federal Reserve conjures ever-greater sums of fiat currency into existence out of thin air, lawmakers in Texas have officially become the latest policymakers to openly explore the potential consequences. Legislation filed recently in the Lone Star State would, among other points, require a study on the effects of having to become partially or completely independent of the federal government in case Washington, D.C., is unable to function due to financial chaos.

As reported by the New York Times, a lawsuit filed in Britain by the family of an innocent victim of a U.S. drone strike may be giving allies a reason to reconsider their participation in the deadly program.
