Columbus, OH – The 1851 Center for Constitutional Law yesterday petitioned the United States Supreme Court to rule in favor of the Petitioner in a case challenging the constitutionality of public sector unions’ power to force public employees to pay union “agency fees.”

What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in “self-evident truths” and set forth a list of grievances against the King in order to justify before the world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country.

Glenn Beck and I spoke yesterday and agreed: the Left is trying to take us back to 1965.
By whipping up the emotions of Americans, liberals want to force Americans not to have the right to bear arms, tell South Carolina to take down the Confederate flag (that’s a debate for South Carolinians), and teach Americans that conservatives are racists.
On Thursday, black pastors are joining with me in Washington DC to protest the liberal take-over of this tragedy. With your support, policy-makers will know our faces and they will hear our voices!
Will you stand with us? I know you believe like I do that it is far too dangerous to stay silent. READ MORE
