NORTH CAROLINA: “Governor Signs Bill of Rights for Foster Children into Law”
BY: Erica Bryant

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed new legislation, called a Bill of Rights for Foster Children, into law. The legislation aims to better protect foster children across the state as some foster programs in the state were not meeting federal standards. Due to mismanaged funds, children were being bounced between dozens of temporary homes and given immunizations without parental consent. This Bill of Rights is working to address all these issues and take additional steps to make sure the state has the resources to protect these foster children., July 23rd, 2013

SOUTH CAROLINA: “Grandparents’ Rights Provide Children with Alternative to Foster Care”
BY: Frances Parrish

The Grandparents Rights Association of South Carolina (GRASC) was founded four years ago by John Schafer after he lost his rights to care for his grandchildren when they entered the state’s custody. GRASC is dedicated to protecting the rights of grandparents and grandchildren. The organization introduced a bill in the South Carolina legislature that would encourage family courts to give custody to the grandparents or another relative in the case of the termination of parental rights. The bill, H3464, was signed into law last month. Schafer hopes to expand GRASC to all fifty states, aiming to make things better for all grandparents and grandchildren.

SOUTH CAROLINA: “South Carolina Court Denies Rehearing in Baby Veronica Case, Orders Adoption Finalized”
BY: Russell Hulstine

The South Carolina Supreme Court on Wednesday denied a request to reconsider its July 17 order in the “Baby Veronica” case, instead directing the family court to finalize Veronica’s adoption by the Capobiancos. The court stated its decision was based on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that the Indian Child Welfare Act does not apply to the case. Baby Veronica will be transferred back to South Carolina once the details are worked out. Both the National Congress of American Indians and the Cherokee Nation have released statements displaying their great sadness and disappointment in the ruling., July 24th, 2013

FOSTER CARE/Kinship Care
CALIFORNIA: “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Often Lack Financial Support They Need”
BY: Brenda Gazzar

More than 300,000 grandparents in California have primary responsibility for their grandchildren, with nearly 65,000 of them being aged 65 or older. Twenty-thousand of those older grandparents care for their grandchildren without any other family member present. With the number of people in this age group projected to double in the next 30 years, it is likely that the number of grandparents raising grandchildren will increase at a similar rate or greater. Unfortunately, nearly half of the state’s custodial older grandparents do not have enough income to cover their grandchildren’s most basic needs and public assistance programs are unavailable to family caregivers.

Parental Rights- How to Visit Your Congressman logo
Sign the Petition Donate Volunteer Learn More View Online
July 30, 2013
How to Visit Your Congressman

Next week, the House and Senate will adjourn until after Labor Day so that members can make themselves available back home in your state or district. Last week, we encouraged you to gather some friends and set up an appointment to meet with your lawmakers while they are in the area.

So this week it is only fitting that we walk you through just how to get that done.

1. Set up the meeting. You may want to gather friends and neighbors to go with you, since having a small crowd is a show of strength. Don’t let your friends’ unavailability stop you, however. A visit by one or two is much better than no visit at all.

Once you’ve identified who’s going with you, call the local office you want to visit. Tell them when you would like to come and see if they have a 15-20 minute slot available. If they don’t, be as flexible as you can in scheduling a different time.

2. Prepare. Decide what talking points you want to make, and figure out who in your group will do the best job of making those points. You can make up to 5 or 6 key points, but should keep focal-point speakers to only 1 or 2.

You want to ask your congressman to cosponsor HJRes 50, the Parental Rights Amendment. You can find a lot of talking points at When talking to your Congressman, consider Why We Need an Amendment, or some of the stories from our July 16 newsletter. And if your Congressman is a Democrat, be sure to print out a copy of the Zogby Poll from 2010.

When talking to your Senators, focus on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. We want them to oppose this dangerous treaty. You can find talking points at (West Virginia residents: When visiting Senator Manchin, please focus on the Parental Rights Amendment and ask him to sponsor it.)

3. Show up. Gather your group somewhere other than the lawmaker’s office, so that you can arrive on site as one cohesive group. Arrive a few minutes early (between 3 and 10), and be prepared to wait patiently. Try to dress nicely, and do not let your group be unruly. (Taking children along is a great idea, but you need to make sure they will not be a distraction. Otherwise, it is better to leave them with a sitter.)

4. Make your presentation. You will want to have your points prepared, but also be ready to dialog. If you are visiting with a Democrat in the House, be sure to give them the Zogby poll which shows that 92.4% of self-identified Democratic voters agree with the traditional role of parental rights. (Point out this fact while you’re there.)

If your lawmaker or his staff have questions, answer those you can. If you don’t know an answer, be honest. Tell them, “I don’t know the answer to that, but I would be happy to find out and get back to you.” We will gladly provide the answers you need, and you will have set up a follow-up opportunity to build rapport with that office.

5. Follow up. When you get home (before you have time to forget), write a thank you note and mail it to the office. Thank your lawmaker for taking time to hear your concerns. You might also mention by name helpful staffers you met along the way. Was the receptionist especially hospitable? Or a staff liaison? You might mention her or him by name. They will hear about that, and you will likely win a friend in that office.

6. Let us know. Please shoot an email to and let us know how your visit went. Please include your lawmaker’s name, how many went with you, which issue(s) you touched on (PRA or CRPD?), and your opinion of the meeting. (Please keep it brief, though. We are hopeful he will have to read a lot of these!)

Please keep in mind that encountering an unmoving Congressman or Senator is not failure on your part. You only fail by not making the visit at all. If you need to report that you “got nowhere,” we understand. It is still helpful for us to know where we stand.

If you have any other questions, please email David or give us a call at 540-751-1200 during office hours (8:30 – 5:00 Eastern, Monday – Friday). We look forward to helping make your office visit a success!

Common Core: Where Do We Stand?

Our allies as Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), under the direction of president and HSLDA chairman Michael Farris, have completed their full review of the Common Core State (education) Standards Initiative. You can find that review on their website here.

Given the nature of HSLDA's mission, it should come as no surprise that they take a home schooling perspective. However, their legal analysis regarding such concerns as the federalizing of education and the development of a nation-wide, kindergarten to workforce database is of general interest to all parents, regardless of how you educate your child. I would encourage everyone to read this review to learn more about the threat of Common Core to your parental rights.

Get Your Copy of Internet Safety 101 - Ends Saturday

In case you missed our earlier email, we are offering this DVD course as a gift for your online or phone donation of $100 or more, but the offer is good this week only. For more info, click here. (Please note that this study deals with harsh dangers and realities and seeks to inform parents of the threats. Some of its language is graphic for this reason, and not suitable for everyone.)

Thank you for standing with us to protect children by empowering parents through the Parental Rights Amendment.

American Minute with Bill Federer JULY 28 - Reconstruction Amendments and consequences

American Minute with Bill Federer
JULY 28 - Reconstruction Amendments and consequences
In 1857, the Supreme Court, with 7 of the 9 Justices being Democrat, decided that Dred Scott was not a citizen, but property.


Chief Justice Roger Taney, appointed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson, wrote that slaves were "so far inferior...that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit."

After the Civil War, the 13TH AMENDMENT was adopted December 6, 1865, abolishing slavery in America.

Southern Democrat Legislatures then passed Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws, requiring freed slaves to be "apprenticed" to "employers" and punished any who left.

On November 22, 1865, Republicans denounced Mississippi's Democrat legislature for enacting "black codes" which institutionalized racial discrimination.

On February 5, 1866, Republican Congressman Thaddeus Stevens introduced legislation to give former slaves "40 acres and a mule," but Democrats opposed it, led by President Andrew Johnson.

On April 9, 1866, Republicans in Congress overrode Democrat President Johnson's veto and passed the Civil Rights Act of 1866, conferring rights of citizenship on African-Americans.

To force Southern States to grant State citizenship rights to freed slaves, the U.S. House passed the 14TH AMENDMENT, May 10, 1866, as did the Senate, June 8, 1866. One hundred percent of Democrats voted against it.

The 14TH AMENDMENT was adopted by the States on JULY 28, 1868.

Get the book, Three Secular Reasons Why America Should Be Under God

Republican Congressman John Farnsworth of Illinois stated, March 31, 1871:

"The reason for the adoption (of the 14TH AMENDMENT)...was because of... discriminating... legislation of those States... by which they were punishing one class of men under different laws from another class."

On January 8, 1867, Republicans granted voting rights to African-Americans in the District of Columbia, after overriding Democrat President Andrew Johnson's veto.

On July 19, 1867, Republican passed legislation protecting voting rights of African-Americans, after overriding Democrat President Andrew Johnson's veto.

On March 30, 1868, Republicans began impeachment proceedings of Democrat President Andrew Johnson.


On September 12, 1868, Democrats in Georgia's Senate expelled Civil rights activist Tunis Campbell and 24 other Republican African-Americans, who would later be reinstated by a Republican Congress.

On October 22, 1868, while campaigning for re-election, Republican Congressman James Hinds was assassinated by Democrat terrorists who organized vigilante groups known for intimidation tactics and lynchings.

The 15TH AMENDMENT was passed February 3, 1870, overcoming 97 percent Democrat opposition, granting the right to vote to all Americans regardless of race.

On May 31, 1870, Republican President U.S. Grant signed the Enforcement Act, providing stiff penalties for depriving any American of their civil rights.

On June 22, 1870, Republican Congress created the U.S. Department of Justice to safeguard the civil rights of African-Americans against Democrats in the South.

On February 28, 1871, Republican Congress passed the Enforcement Act providing federal protection for African-American voters.

On April 20, 1871, Republican Congress enacted the Ku Klux Klan Act, outlawing Democratic Party-affiliated terrorist groups which oppressed African-Americans.

On October 10, 1871, African-American Republican civil rights leader Octavius Catto was murdered by a Democratic Party operative, after repeated threats by Philadelphia Democrats against black voting.

On October 18, 1871, Republican President Ulysses S. Grant deployed U.S. troops to combat violence committed by Democrat terrorists who formed the Ku Klux Klan.

In solving one problem, another was created.
When questioned as to whether the 14th Amendment might open the door for the Federal Government to usurp other rights away from the States, its sponsor, Republican Congressman John Bingham of Ohio, replied:

"I repel the suggestion...that the Amendment will...take away from any State any right that belongs to it."

Yet after the 14th Amendment was ratified, activist Federal Judges began to do just that.

Darwinist philosopher Herbert Spencer influenced Harvard Law School dean Christopher Columbus Langdell to apply evolution to the legal process.

Rather than upholding the intent of those who wrote the laws, Langdell taught that laws could evolve through a series of "case precedents."

This influenced Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., to challenge the traditionalist concept that the Constitution does not change, so neither should its interpretation.

The 14th Amendment soon became a door by which Federal Courts gradually took authority away from the States in other areas such as trade disputes, union strikes, what farmers could grow, and eventually religion.

Federal Judges gradually began using the 14th Amendment to remove from States' jurisdiction responsibility for:

-Freedom of speech and press, Gitlow v. New York, 1925 (re: Socialists) and Fiske v. Kansas, 1927 (re: Unions);
-Freedom of press, Near v. Minnesota, 1931 (re: anti-Catholics); and
-Freedom of assembly, DeJonge v. Oregon, 1937 (re: Communists).

Federal Judges used the 14th Amendment to remove responsibility for religious freedom from States' jurisdiction in cases regarding Jehovah's Witnesses:

Cantwell v. Connecticut, 1940; Minersville School District v. Gobitis, 1940; Jones v. Opelika, 1942; Taylor v. Mississippi, 1943; Martin v. Struthers, 1943; United States v. Ballard, 1944; Saia v. New York, 1948; and Niemotoko v. Maryland, 1951.

Cases of anti-Catholic discrimination were appealed to the Supreme Court:

Pierce v. Society of Sisters of Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, 1925, and Everson v. Board of Education, 1947.

Since then, Federal Courts used a case by case "crucible of litigation" (Wallace v. Jaffree, 1985) to evolve the First Amendment into its present anti-religious interpretation.

Thomas Jefferson warned that this would eventually happen, in a letter to Charles Hammond in 1821:

"The germ of dissolution of our...government is in...the Federal judiciary...working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow...until all shall be usurped from the States."

The pre-14TH AMENDMENT view of "Separation of Church and State" was to simply to limit the Federal Government, as President Thomas Jefferson stated in his Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1805:

"In matters of religion I have considered that its free exercise is placed by the Constitution independent of the powers of the General (Federal) Government.

I have therefore undertaken, on no occasion, to prescribe the religious exercise suited to it; but have left them, as the Constitution found them, under the direction and discipline of State and church authorities by the several religious societies."

On January 23, 1808, Jefferson wrote to Samuel Miller:

"I consider the (Federal) Government of the United States as interdicted by the Constitution from intermeddling with religious institutions, their doctrines, discipline, or exercises.

This results not only from the provision that no law shall be made respecting the establishment or free exercise of religion, but from that also which reserves to the States the powers not delegated to the United States (10th Amendment).

Certainly no power to prescribe any religious exercise, or to assume authority in religious discipline, has been delegated to the General (Federal) government. It must then rest with the States as far as it can be in any human authority...

I do not believe it is for the interest of religion to invite the civil magistrate to direct its exercises, its discipline, or its doctrines...

Every religious society has a right to determine for itself the times for these exercises, and the objects proper for them, according to their own particular tenets."

Summing up the pre-14TH AMENDMENT view, Justice Joseph Story wrote in A Familiar Exposition of the Constitution of the United States, 1840:

"The real object of the First Amendment was not to countenance, much less to advance Mohammedanism, or Judaism, or infidelity, by prostrating Christianity, but to exclude all rivalry among Christian sects."

In his Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833, Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story wrote:

"In some of the States, Episcopalians constituted the predominant sect; in other, Presbyterians; in others, Congregationalists; in others, Quakers...

The whole power over the subject of religion is left exclusively to the State governments, to be acted upon according to their own sense of justice and the State Constitutions."

When North Carolina was considering ratifying the U.S. Constitution, its Governor, Samuel Johnston, argued, July 30, 1788:

"The people of Massachusetts and Connecticut are mostly Presbyterians...
In Rhode Island, the tenets of the Baptists, I believe, prevail.
In New York, they are divided very much; the most numerous are the Episcopalians and the Baptists.
In New Jersey, they are as much divided as we are.
In Pennsylvania, if any sect prevails more than others, it is that of the Quakers.
In Maryland, the Episcopalians are most numerous, though there are other sects.
In Virginia, there are many sects...
I hope, therefore, that gentlemen will see there is no cause of fear that any one religion shall be exclusively established."

In 1889, John Bouvier's Law Dictionary (Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott Company) hinted of the novel use of the 14TH AMENDMENT in its definition of the word "Religion":

"'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof'... By establishment of religion is meant the setting up of state church, or at least conferring upon one church of special favors which are denied to others...

The Christian religion is, of course, recognized by the government, yet...the preservation of religious liberty is left to the States...

This provision and that relating to religious tests are limitations upon the power of the (Federal) Congress only...Perhaps the Fourteenth Amendment may give additional securities if needful."

Justice Joseph Story wrote in his Commentaries, 1833:

"Probably at the time of the adoption of the Constitution...the universal sentiment in America was, that Christianity ought to receive encouragement from the state so far as was not incompatible with the private rights of conscience and the freedom of religious worship.

Any attempt to level all religions, and make it a matter of state policy to hold all in utter indifference, would have created universal disapprobation, if not universal indignation."
