    Chuck Norris: Blocking Faith, Family and Freedom Websites

    As most kids are screaming "School's out for summer," 18-year-old high-school student Andrew Lampart is still trying to figure out why his school's Internet service blocked him from gathering conservative facts for his side of the argument on his school debate team. Andrew told Fox News, "I knew it was important to get facts for both sides of the case." But when he tried to do an Internet search of conservative views, he was prevented at every turn.

    Chuck Norris: President Obama vs. George Washington on Prisoner Exchange (Part 2)

    Last week, I spoke about how President Barack Obama justified his prisoner swap of five senior Taliban leaders for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl by saying former military leaders and presidents, including George Washington, have engaged in prisoner of war exchange, too. Obama's exact words were: "This is what happens at the end of wars. That was true for George Washington; that was true for Abraham Lincoln; that was true for FDR; that's been true of every combat situation -- that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back. And that's the right thing to do."

    Chuck Norris: President Obama vs. George Washington on Prisoner Exchange (Part 1)

    I have four colossal disagreements with how President Barack Obama cut the deal for the prisoner swap of five senior Taliban leaders for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl; the former, the White House itself admits, could "absolutely" rejoin terrorist cells. Sure, I have far more than four issues with how it all went down -- for example, the absolute avoidance and disregard of constitutional submission and congressional consent. But this administration seems to have little regard for proper protocol with anything, so I'm going to focus here on a few different angles of argument.

    Chuck Norris: 89-Year-Old Vet Waits 68 Years for Benefits

    I almost lost my Texas cool this past week when reading a Fox News report about an 89-year-old wounded World War II veteran who had to wait 68 years from the time he was on the battlefield until he received benefits. And you thought long waits and mishandling of veterans care was only a recent problem? Milton Rackham of Belding, Michigan, who is a Purple Heart recipient, lived for decades without benefits because his records were lost in a fire; at least that's how the Veterans Administration explained its inability to give him the post-war care he deserved and fought for.

    Chuck Norris: Veterans, PTSD and US Government Abandonment

    Combat veteran Kryn Miner, 44, served 11 deployments in seven years. He suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and a traumatic brain injury after a bomb blast in Afghanistan in 2010 threw him into a wall. It was one of 19 blasts he endured over two decades of service to his country.On April 29, Kryn died after being shot by his teenage son, who was acting in defense of himself, his mother and his siblings because Kryn had threatened to kill them and pulled out a gun. Prosecutors ruled that it was a justified shooting, absolving the teen from facing charges. It was a tragic ending to a stellar military career. But according to his wife, Amy, it wouldn't have happened if the U.S. government were as eager to care for veterans as it is to deploy them overseas in battle.

    Chuck Norris: Who owns our kids anyway?

    Chuck Norris: The White House's Cover-up of Benghazi

    The Obama administration continues to suppress documents that could finally explain why U.S. officials lied to the world that the September 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, occurred as a protest over an American-made anti-Muslim video. And the families and friends of the four brave Americans murdered there continue to suffer without answers, reasons or justice. Is there not a shred of heart left in Washington?USA Today explained this past week how the watchdog group Judicial Watch blew the whistle on the White House's withholding of documents and obtained a letter from the U.S. Department of Justice under the Freedom of Information Act. In it, the Justice Department tries to justify its withholding of further Benghazi documents.

    Chuck Norris: My Granny's Advice for America (Part 2)

    A year ago, I wrote a two-part series titled "My Mom's Advice for America." There's no better time than now -- between my mother's 93rd birthday (May 4) and Mother's Day (May 11) -- to talk about her mother's advice, which my mother recorded in her autobiography, "Acts of Kindness: My Story."Last week, I started by echoing what my mom said about my grandmother's family values. Both of their models still stand as beacons of light, pointing the way America and American families need to go.

    Chuck Norris: My Granny's Advice for America (Part 1)

    A year ago, I wrote a two-part series titled "My Mom's Advice for America." Those columns became two of my most read pieces. With both my mother's 93rd birthday (May 4) and Mother's Day (May 11) on the horizon, I decided to write a two-part series this year on her mother's advice for America.

    Chuck Norris: Government-Forced Retirement at 57?

    The words of Thomas Jefferson are etched under the dome of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.: “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Imagine if Jefferson finished that thought with these words: “Unless, of course, you’re 57 years old and a U.S. federal law enforcement officer.” In the beginning of our republic, our founders fought for freedom from governing tyranny, including for those who worked in government. And if a man’s work ethic, health and passions allowed him to labor until his dying breath, he did so, even in government.

    Chuck Norris: 3 Lessons Our Politicians Should Learn From Fort Hood

    As with all Americans, my wife, Gena, and I had our hearts broken again last Wednesday as we heard about another killing spree at Fort Hood, Texas, in which four people died and 16 more were injured at the U.S. Army's largest active-duty installation.Chelsea Schilling, WorldNetDaily's commentator editor and journalist extraordinaire, reported shortly after the tragedy: "The shooter, identified as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez, is among the dead. Lopez reportedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound," but only after being confronted by a courageous female military police officer in the parking lot. (Interestingly, it was also a female cop who felt responsible for thwarting the Fort Hood gunman in 2009. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people -- the deadliest attack on a domestic military base in U.S. history.)

    Chuck Norris: US Air Force Airbrushes Religious Liberty Again

    Fox News reported a few weeks ago about how the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., removed a Bible verse from a cadet's personal whiteboard. I am personally so disappointed that the branch of service that I served in to protect our freedoms is now trying to suppress them. When one walks the dorm halls of the Air Force Academy, one immediately notices the hundreds of whiteboards hanging on students' doors. This past week, Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., cited Air Force officials who explained that cadets "often use these boards to display items, quotes or other things that reflect their personality or from which they draw inspiration." I guess the Bible is the wrong type of inspiration, at least according to some Air Force leaders.

    Chuck Norris: Obamacare's O-Bummers For Americans

    With Obamacare’s March 31 sign up deadline and subsequent penalties looming over the heads of young and old Americans, citizens are questioning more than ever – and with good reason, I might add – if Washington has dished out another bill of bad goods. And here are a few more solid reasons why our socialistic medicine skepticism continues.Reporter Bob Unruh at WND recently reported how Obamacare is actually blocking patients from paying for their own treatments. The feds are already capping what some citizens can spend on their own health care, even if those patients are willing and able to cover their own costs.

    Chuck Norris: America's Founders and Legalizing Marijuana (Part 3)

    In the first two parts of this series, I explained the comparative dangers and health risks of alcohol and marijuana. To elevate one over the other is like saying a plain doughnut isn't so bad as a glazed one. The point is that neither of the drugs is good for us or our culture.

    Chuck Norris: Alcohol, marijuana and American youth, Part 2

    A few weeks ago in Part 1, I began to show from extensive studies and evidence how alcohol and marijuana use compare regarding addiction, withdrawals and using motorized vehicles.This week in Part 2, I will discuss in greater detail how alcohol and marijuana compare in their effects on our minds, bodies and relationships. And then I want to conclude addressing the most overlooked aspect of the marijuana legalization debate: its effects on the youth of America.

    Chuck Norris: A Force More Powerful Than Oscar

    I don't have to explain to anyone how television is much more risque, with some programs being downright lewd, than it was decades ago. But I want to tell you about something that can change the course of values in television and movies.Once upon a time, about as edgy as it got was Barbara Eden's "I Dream of Jeannie" character, who showed her trim tummy, and Elvis swinging his pelvis on "The Ed Sullivan Show" -- though the broadcast screen only captured the upper half of his body as he did.

    Chuck Norris: Chuck Norris tells Olympics' most inspiring tales

    Chuck, thank you for your inspiring column last week on Olympic champion snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg. I don’t want to take away from his or any other’s deserved golden glory, but in a country where sports figures’ character is not always – shall we say – exemplary, don’t you think we should also commend Olympic champions who truly show gold medal attitudes in the face of defeat? – “Looking Out for Losers” in LouisianaThere are those who are champions on courses of competition. Then there are those who are victors in their caliber of character, too. In our often wayward world, the latter ought to be given not just a gold medal but a golden crown.

    Chuck Norris: When Sportsmanship Trumps Cereal Boxes

    There are those who are champions on courses of competition. Then there are those who are victors in their caliber of character, too. In our often wayward world, the latter ought to be given not just a gold medal but a golden crown.Being dead last is never fun. I would imagine that it is particularly painful if you’ve trained like a world champion, traveled half-way around the globe, and are competing at the Winter Olympics.

    Chuck Norris: What Is Your 'Back 16 Japan'?

    (Editor's note: Chuck has postponed the second part of his series "Alcohol vs. Marijuana" until after the Winter Olympics so he can address some moments of inspiration from the games.)American snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg, a native of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, made the decision of his life in Olympic competition over the weekend, and it paid off big-time, with the first American gold medal -- and the first gold medal in general -- in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Whatever our aspirations, his example shows us the way to our ticket to gold, too.

    Chuck Norris: Alcohol vs. Marijuana (Part 1)

    I understand the arguments for the legalization of marijuana: It can generate tax revenue. It can reduce illegal supply and demand. It can strip power from cartels and lessen crime across and at our borders. And it isn't so dangerous as other illegal drugs or alcohol.President Barack Obama even claimed one of those arguments when he recently told New Yorker Editor David Remnick, "As has been well-documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life."

    Chuck Norris: American Hostages, My Granddaughters, and the Hope of the World

    I'm interrupting my series on Common Core State Standards for public schools to join the appeal to Iran and North Korea for the release of American hostages like imprisoned American pastor Saeed Abedini and missionary Kenneth Bae. And I'm also calling upon President Obama and Congress to step up their action, stand for religious freedom and fight for the release of these godly men, whose crimes were nothing more than exercising their faith.

    Chuck Norris: Is Common Core Good For Kids and Teachers? Part 5

    Common Core State Standard, CCSS, advocates love to point out how 45 states and the District of Columbia have voluntarily adopted this new national public school regimen. What they’re not telling you, however, is how federal and state funds were used to muscle their adoption or how expert reviews and efficacy shortfalls have prompted political and educational action in at least 17 of those 45 states (more than 33 percent) to restrict or reverse the tides of CCSS rollout, according to a brand new report in the Huffington Post.In August, Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Oklahoma and Utah withdrew from the assessment groups designing tests for the CCSS. And in September, Florida Gov. Rick Scott issued an executive order restricting Florida’s involvement with the CCSS national assessments because of concerns over federal overreach of the program. Congress.org reported, “Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Utah are all currently considering full withdrawal with other fiscally conservative states sure to follow.”

    Chuck Norris: Feds' 3 Tentacles in the Common Core, Part 4

    In Part 1 of my series on the Common Core State Standards being infused into 45 state public school systems, I revealed how the feds spent $350 million of taxpayers’ money, funding and giving give grants and waivers to muscle states and local school districts to accept CCSS. And that was after 2009, when feds awarded or bribed “governors approximately $48.6 billion … in exchange for a commitment to advance essential education reforms … including: college- and career-ready standards [aka CCSS] …”In Part 2, I showed how the feds are injecting their progressive agenda into curricula taught to U.S. kids in elementary, middle and high schools via their educative minions posted in academic arenas and among CCSS curricula creators.

    Chuck Norris: Feds' 3 Tentacles in the Common Core, Part 3

    After months of the feds doing everything they could to distance themselves from the origin and launch of the controversial Common Core State Standards, or CCSS, more and more of Washington’s tentacles are surfacing through public rage, implementation revelations and the  White House’s own foot-in-mouth disease.After the U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan cast bigoted blame on “white suburban moms” for nationwide resistance to CCSS – an oops from which he’s still reeling in public humiliation and maternal fury, White House spokesman Jay Carney dodged Duncan’s bullets by claiming ignorance to his statements. But then Carney buried the White House in federal ownership of CCSS by saying, “I can just tell you that the secretary of education and everybody on the president’s team dedicated to this effort is focused on making sure that we do everything we can, working with states and others …”

    Chuck Norris: Feds' 3 Tentacles in the Common Core, Part 2

    Last week in Part 1, I explained what the Common Core State Standards, or CCSS, are and how, despite the federal government saying it’s staying out of the classroom standard business, there is much evidence to show that the feds are intricately linked to it.The first way I demonstrated that in Part 1 was by pointing out that the feds have spent $350 million of taxpayers’ money, funding and giving give grants and waivers to muscle and bribe states and local school districts to accept CCSS. And all of that was done without a single act of Congress, meaning yours truly – the executive branch, including the White House – dumped protocol again to dodge accountability.
