“In God We Trust” – Our National Motto – is under attack again.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve been defeating atheist Michael Newdow’s attempts to banish “under God” and “In God We Trust” in federal court for over a decade.
Once again his last federal lawsuit is full of the same failed arguments: outlandishly claiming that our National Motto is “false and offensive,” “bigotry,” and "repulsive," that atheists are “forced to proselytize,” and even claiming that it promotes a "psychopathic monster."
Yet it’s this lawsuit that is extremely offensive and extremely wrong legally.
We defeated Newdow’s attempt to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance at the Supreme Court and helped ensure his last lawsuit against the National Motto failed.
Now we’re preparing to file another critical amicus brief to defend “In God We Trust.” Join our brief.
This year we have seen a record number of constitutionally minded judges confirmed . This achievement is a credit to President Trump and the leadership in the U.S. Senate. Former Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, current Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, and...
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to openly testify before Congress on July 17. He’ll appear before two Democratically-controlled House committees after being subpoenaed by them. The Democrats chose to subpoena Mueller; but their partisan move will backfire on them -- significantly.

Yesterday we told you how a question intended to be included on the upcoming 2020 census has been taken before the Supreme Court by critics who say it is offensive because it asks if everyone living in your home is “a citizen of the United States.” On today’s show, we asked whether the Supreme...
ACLJ petitions aren’t merely names on a page but powerful tools used with governments, the media, and courts to focus attention on injustice and create real-world change. Here's how:
First, we can directly and immediately alert individual Members of Congress and other government officials of the size and scope of the public support for our initiatives. Unlike, say, White House petitions – which at best generate a response from low-level staffers – our most successful petitions have generated direct White House, State Department, and congressional responses at the highest level.
Second, we alert members of the media and can help drive national news stories as petition signatures grow.
Third, petitions not only influence foreign governments, they can provide aid and comfort to persecuted people abroad.
Finally, you can directly participate in the most critical court battles of our time. Your signature - your voice - can be represented in briefs to the Supreme Court and to federal courts across America.
