ACRU Demands Freedom To Read for any US News Article

The New York Post ran a second story on October 15th claiming it has evidence Hunter Biden openly lobbied a Chinese energy firm to cash in on his family's influence. Once again, social media giants Facebook and Twitter are blocking citizen access to these stories. Media censors do not have the right to supersede our First Amendment protections. #freedomtoread

Liberal Social Media Giants Block America’s Freedom to Read

On October 14th, the New York Post ran a story reprinting an email allegedly from a Ukrainian oil exec thanking Hunter Biden for providing access to his father, VP Joe Biden. Twitter and Facebook have blocked circulation of this article. It is not up to liberal social media censors to assess the veracity of these claims -- it's up to the American people. #freedomtoread

Texas county on notice after suppressing religious liberty

Texas AG Ken Paxton has sent a letter to the liberal Cameron County judge and health officials who are demanding faith-based schools stay closed. Paxton’s letter reminds them (we are paraphrasing) that the Constitution is still the law of the land and that religious freedom still extends to religious schools.

CA Court: If rioters can scream, worshippers can praise

Many people of faith want to get back to church, and some are too worried about COVID to attend in person. Both are Constitutionally protected choices. After California Gov. Newsom decided worshippers couldn’t sing, but rioters could “protest,” Sun Valley Community Church Pastor John MacArthur sued the Governor, State AG and LA Mayor over their anti-indoor service restrictions. A judge familiar with our first freedoms sided with the faithful.

Wisdom from a regular gal

Ms. Elizabeth Ward Nottrodt likes to write letters to the editor, and for that we are grateful. We like to circle back to first principles at ACRU, and Ms. Nottrodt’s latest Washington Times letter on foundational property rights vs. anti-rule of law destructive Marxism is right on the money. Property rights rule no. 1? “Don’t touch other peoples’ stuff.”

Who can teach history better than veterans who lived it?

We love our veterans and we love this idea. In the past, the American Legion and other veterans groups participated in civics education for young people. Now that civics education has gone the way of the Dodo Bird in public schools, why not bring this mission back? Are you involved in a local AL or VFW post? If so, we hope you’ll consider some of the suggestions in this piece.

Won’t open church? Then we’ll worship amongst the slot machines

The liberal governor of Nevada unilaterally decided casinos could hold thousands of people and churches (regardless of capacity) could only have 50. Liberal Supreme Court justices and Chief Justice Roberts threw religious freedom under the bus by agreeing. But a group of worshipers found a workaround to exercise their Constitutional rights. Perfect. Brilliant.

The Supreme Court Declines to Consider Price v. Chicago

On July 2, the U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari in the case of Price v. City of Chicago, although Justice Thomas would have granted the petition. The American Constitutional Rights Union, joined by Students for Life in America, filed an amicus brief in support of the Petitioners, who were challenging the constitutionality of a Chicago ordinance limiting the speech rights of anti-abortion protesters.

Justice Roberts becomes the anti-religious freedom swing vote

An un-Constitutional and absurd ruling from the Supreme Court last week decided a Nevada church had to adhere to arbitrary and biased COVID guidelines from its liberal governor. Democrat Governor Sisolak is allowing hundreds of people into bars and casinos but only 50 souls per church without even considering church size. Casting the First Amendment to the wind, liberal justices were joined by Justice Roberts in pretending our first freedoms are less important than cocktails and Blackjack.

ACRU’s Blackwell: Cancel Culture’s Dual Meaning Is a War for America’s Soul

"Cancel culture” is a double entendre of the dangerous kind. It is not just about canceling individuals or entities who offend leftist activists and their myopic group of minions; it is about fundamentally canceling America.
