What happens when the forces of evil gain power and the necessary technology to destroy an entire culture for their own means? That is the story of my new political thriller entitled ERASE. ERASE is set in today’s America. Every government policy I use in the...

Political correctness has been with us a long time; Social Justice for almost as long.  Many people did not understand the implications.  Many still don’t – some because they have been brainwashed to follow the crowd, some because they haven’t taken the time to think...

In the brave new world of the very near future, children will enter their public schools passing police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, metal detectors, X-ray scanners and warrantless physical searches. Parents will relax, knowing their child is now “SAFE.” No violent evil doers will be able...

The debate over public education grows more heated. Regularly, reports are released showing that the academic abilities of American students continue to fall when compared to those in other countries. Twenty years ago the U.S. ranked first in the world in the number of young adults...

February 22, 2010 By Tom DeWeese I have reported many times in the pages of the DeWeese Report about how public school classrooms are being used, not for the teaching of academic knowledge, but for behavior modification to change the student’s attitudes, values and beliefs. Barack Obama...

December 17, 2007 By Tom DeWeese It’s a fact. Most of today’s school children can barely read or write. They can’t perform math problems without a calculator. They barely know who the Founding Fathers were and know even less of their achievements. Most can’t tell you...

May 10, 2006 By Tom DeWeese They are one of the biggest publishers of textbooks in the world, and they wanted to use some of my writings in one of their products. My first thought was, "Gee, I’m coming up in the world." The second was, "How...

December 12, 2005 By Tom DeWeese Your elected representatives in Congress deny that this nation has a mandatory federal education curriculum. Congress hides the fact behind the historic arrangement of state and local control of schools. The federal government denies that there is a federal curriculum...

November 8, 2005 By Tom DeWeese In the old days, children were warned not to smoke because it would stunt their growth. Apparently the same warning can now be issued on Ritalin. Researchers at the University of Sydney have analyzed 29 separate studies on the subject and...

January 17, 2005 By Tom DeWeese Many parents have sought to protect their children from the behavior-modification programs that have taken the place of academic education in public schools. To escape the assault of Outcome-Based Education (OBE), multi-culturalism, and workforce training programs, parents in ever-increasing numbers are...

March 19, 2004 By Tom DeWeese The Bush administration’s schizophrenic relationship with the United Nations continues unabated. It is dazzling to watch one part of the administration rebuke the UN for failing to respond to the threats of dictatorships to American security while another...

October 28, 2003 By Tom DeWeese The Declaration of Independence is quite clear about where government power is supposed to come from. It says "…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed." In other words, the people of the United...

January 2, 2003 By Tom DeWeese The new year calls to us to save the many children in our nation's schools who will be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and prescribed mind-altering drugs. This evil grows exponentially and, with it,...
