Florida Eagle Forum – Teen Eagles Outreach Florida Eagle Forum – Teen Eagles OutreachJuly 12, 2017 Pat Andrews shared the following report with us about Eagle Forum of Florida’s outreach to homeschoolers and promoting TEEN EAGLES. Homeschooling has made great strides in the U.S. in recent years as more and more parents try to find a better way to educate their children.

Capitol Hill Report — 7/03/17 July 3, 2017 Notable Supreme Court Cases Religious liberty has become the left’s punching bag, forcing the Supreme Court to rule on many cases dealing with this issue alone.  We saw one of those cases this week, along with challenges to President Trump’s executive order dealing with travel and refugees from other countries.  Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer Trinity Lutheran Church in Missouri applied to a state program that provides rubber surfaces made out of recycled tires to safeguard ...

To have a large number of unknown delegates from the 50 states messing with our constitution would put at risk our First and Second Amendments.
