Cotton rips US Air Force Academy prof for teaching critical race theory: She's trying to indoctrinate cadets

Cotton rips US Air Force Academy prof for teaching critical race theory: She's trying to indoctrinate cadets

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., joined “The Story” Wednesday to react to Air Force Academy associate professor Lynne Chandler Garcia advocating for critical race theory in the classroom, citing racism is ingrained in the system, in a Washington Post op-ed.TOM COTTON: I read Professor Garcia’s op-ed. It’s clear she knows very little about our Constitution, which is typical of colleges these days. She has no business teaching the Constitution or political science to cadets at the Air Force. [Defense] Secretary [Lloyd] Austin has testified at least twice that our military does not teach, instruct, or condone critical race theory. So Miss Garcia should start looking for a different place of employment in my opinion. Furthermore, it shouldn’t require an op-ed in The Washington Post or for a United States senator to make these inquiries for someone to exercise some oversight of what is being taught to our cadets at the service academy. So I suspect General [Richard] Clark, the superintendent of the Air Force Academy, and I will have a conversation soon about this. We should not be teaching and indoctrinating our cadets to believe that our military is a fundamentally racist institution. Who exactly is going to raise their hand and take an oath to defend our Constitution if you believe what Professor Garcia is teaching about it?WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE:

Declaration of Independence: 5 facts you may not know on this Fourth of July

Declaration of Independence: 5 facts you may not know on this Fourth of July

‘Woke’ culture targets National Archives rotunda Fox News’ Martha MacCallum discusses the report from the National Archives task force that said the rotunda is an example of ‘structural racism’ and reacts to a Washington Post article that compared Dan Crenshaw to George Wallace.1.) Independence Was Not Declared on July Fourth: July 4, 1776 is significant because that is the day Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence document. However, the second Continental Congress actually voted for independence on July 2. In a letter to his wife, Abigail, John Adams predicted that future generations would celebrate July 2 as Independence Day, saying, “The second day of July, 1776, will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illumination, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore.” 2.) 26 copies of the Declaration of Independence still exist:After the Declaration of Independence was adopted, the “Committee of Five,” which consisted of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston, was responsible for the reproduction of the approved text. On July 5, Philadelphia printer John Dunlap sent out all the copies he made to newspapers across the 13 colonies, in addition to commanders of the Continental troops and local politicians. There were initially hundreds of copies known as “Dunlap broadsides,” but only 26 of them survive and are mostly being exhibited in museum and library collections. (One of the most recently discovered “Dunlap broadsides” was found by a Philadelphia man in the back of a picture frame that was purchased at a flea market for $4 in 1989)READ: THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE3.) George Washington’s reading of the Declaration of Independence on July 9, 1776 led to a riot in New York City where King George III’s statue was torn down:When one of the “Dunlap broadsides” arrived in New York City on July 9, 1776, George Washington, who was the commander of the Continental forces in New York at the time, read the document to the crowd in front of city hall. Many of them cheered and would later tear down a statue of King George III nearby. The statue was later melted down and used to make tens of thousands of musket balls for the American army.4.) After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and other documents were secretly stashed at Fort Knox during World War II:After the attack on Pearl harbor, Secret Service Agent Harry Neal was tasked with transferring “priceless historical documents” to a secure facility away from Washington, D.C. After meeting with librarian Archibald MacLeish at the Library of Congress, Neal orchestrated the logistics of how they would discreetly transport the documents out of DC to Fort Knox, which is near Louisville, Kentucky. Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, the Gutenberg Bible, and the Articles of Confederation were also being stored in some of the cases at Fort Knox. The Declaration was returned to Washington, D.C., in 1944.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP5.) 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, but many of them never became famous:Some of the signers of the Declaration of Independence like John Adams and Thomas Jefferson went on to dedicate their lives to public service and serve as the second and third presidents of the United States. However, several of the signers are only remembered by history, such as Button Gwinnett of Georgia and New Hampshire’s Josiah Bartlett, whose name was used, with a slightly different spelling , as Martin Sheen’s presidential character in “West Wing.”

Jonathan Turley: Supreme Court made 'powerful statement' by unanimously siding with Catholic foster agency

Jonathan Turley: Supreme Court made 'powerful statement' by unanimously siding with Catholic foster agency

Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley reacted Thursday on “America Reports” to the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision that a Catholic foster agency shouldn’t be banned from participating in Philadelphia’s foster program because it excludes same-sex couples, calling it a “major decision for religious rights.”JONATHAN TURLEY: This is a major decision for religious rights, and it’s also the decision that some of us thought was the most important of those pending cases we’ve been waiting for. What is surprising is it’s 9-0. There are concurrences, but the Court is speaking with one voice saying the city of Philadelphia violated the free exercise clause of the Constitution. They’re saying that you need to accommodate the religious values of these organizations, particularly when you obviously can do so. You have exceptions for other groups. It’s a very powerful statement, not just in its ruling but in its unanimity …SUPREME COURT SIDES WITH CATHOLIC FOSTER AGENCY THAT EXCLUDES SAME-SEX COUPLES IN 9-0 RULINGThey saw the ability of the city to make available adoption services without denying religious beliefs and values to these organizations. These Catholic charities play a very significant role in adoption and other services, but there’s a variety of these groups, so the Court is saying we have to find a way to accommodate that. The reason this is so important is that these types of conflicts between anti-discrimination laws and the religious clauses of the Constitution are becoming more common. We just had a resumption of what’s called the Masterpiece cake shop case. It went before the Supreme Court involving a baker who didn’t want to do cakes that violate his religious beliefs. Activists have been trying to create another case to challenge him and they’ve done so, but they may regret that, because he could end up expanding what was a narrow ruling in his favor into something much broader after this decision.WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW BELOW:
