Stephanie Holden Smith: Freedom in crisis

It is now the unfortunate (inconvenient?) truth that cancel culture is the standard in American society today. What began as an easily ignored annoyance widely known as political correctness has mushroomed into a full scale attack on individual freedom. Punishing people professionally and/or socially for their sincerely held personal or religious beliefs is completely antithetical in a country built upon the foundational cornerstones of freedom of thought and freedom of speech.

Stephanie Holden Smith: The real war on women

On day one of the Biden administration, he signed a sweeping executive order, “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.” That order unleashed an assault on Title IX, the federal law prohibiting discrimination in educational programs and activities, including athletics, on the basis of sex.

Listen to 1819 News Contributor Stephanie Holden Smith on News & Views with Joey Clark as they discuss her recent article opining that government is not a piggybank and is not God, and Biden's college loan "forgiveness" is likely unconstitutional and certainly regressive.

Piggybank
Stephanie Holden Smith: Government isn’t God or a piggy bank

President Biden is attempting to unilaterally erase $10,000 in federal student loan debt for individuals with incomes below $125,000 and households that earn less than $250,000 annually. His executive order (some would say fiat) was signed under the auspicious umbrella of the (length yet to be determined) national COVID emergency.

Stephanie Holden Smith: Government doesn’t produce money — taxpayers do

It’s rare that elected officials of all ideological stripes agree on how to spend money, and it’s even rarer that elected officials agree regarding cutting taxes. What is clearly unanimous in the state of Alabama is widespread understanding, and literally everyone is in agreement that state coffers are overflowing.

Stephanie Holden Smith: The 'Respect for Marriage Act' will destroy America

As I’ve pointed out recently, members of Congress tend to name pieces of legislation the exact opposite of what the bill actually does. The “Respect for Marriage Act” is no different.

Stephanie Holden Smith: Let us speak boldly!

"The old canard says, ‘You can’t legislate morality.’ The truth is you can’t avoid legislating morality. Every law says, ‘It’s not okay to do this thing’ or ‘You must do this thing.’ Every law legislates morality.  Morality will be legislated. The only question is, whose morality?” (God, Caesar, and Idols, by Rick D. Boyer)
