Real Unemployment Rate Is At Least 18 Percent

Friday, the Labor Department is expected to report the economy added 235,000 jobs in July, and the unemployment rate remained steady at 6.1 percent, but that hardly tells the story. The jobless rate may be down from its recession peak of 10 percent, but much of this results from adults, discouraged by the lack of decent job openings, having quit… Read more →

Obama signs act to protect LGBT federal contractors

President Obama signed an executive order Monday protecting gay and transgender federal contractors from discrimination, the latest in his effort to act on Democratic-supported issues he says are being ignored by the Republican-led House. “It doesn’t make much sense, but today in America millions of our fellow citizens wake up and go to work with the awareness that they could… Read more →

EPA Gives Itself Power to Garnish Wages

The Washington Times is reporting a quiet ruling claimed by the Environmental Protection Agency that gives them the authority to “unilaterally garnish paychecks” of anyone violating its rules and regulations. This would not be the first time the EPA has overstepped its bounds as a government agency. As TruthRevolt reported back in April, they fined a man $75,000 per day because they claimed he violated the Clean… Read more →

Graduate Delivers Faith-Based Speech; Defies School Administrators

When Brooks Hansby learned he would be the salutatorian for his graduating class, he submitted three different drafts to school administrators. Each draft was rejected because they contained references to his deeply-held Christian beliefs.

Undeterred, Hansby decided to use the experience as a “teachable moment” for his fellow graduates.

In coming before you today, I presented three drafts of my speech, all of them denied on account of my desire to share with you my personal thoughts and inspiration to you: my Christian faith. In life, you will be told, ‘No.’ In life you will be told to do things that you have no desire to do. In life, you will be asked to do things that violate your conscience and desire to do what is right.

“No man or woman has ever truly succeeded or been fulfilled on the account of living for others and not standing on what they knew in their heart was right or good,” Hansby said, before quoting from “the biggest best-selling book of all-time in history.” “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot,” Hansby said, quoting Matthew, 5:13.

“Be the salt of the Earth. Be strong and stand for your convictions and for what is right, what is ethical, what is moral and what is Godly, no matter what is the cost to you. Stand for what is good wherever you go and whatever you do.” That’s not a bad message for high school graduates to hear. Wonder why public school administrators, paid by tax-payer money, wanted to silence it.
