Who am I?

Judge (for over 20 years), Constituitonal Law Professor, Podcast Host (Patriot Lessons: American History & Civics Podcast), former Member of the State Board of Education, Author (America's Survival Guide, How to Stop America's Impending Suicide by Reclaiming Our First Principles, www.AmericasSurvivalGuide.com) and History co-founder of Patriot Week Foundation (www.PatriotWeek.org). Patriot Week began in 2009 when my then 10 year old daughter Leah pounded on the table and demanded a new celebration for America. This nonpartisan, nonprofit effort has been unanimously recognized by the US Senate for 5 consecutive years (co-sponsored by Democrat Senator Gary Peters and Republican Senator John Kennedy). Patriot Week renews America’s spirit by deepening the appreciation of the First Principles, Founding Fathers and other Patriots, vital documents and speeches, and flags that make America the greatest nation in world history. Many of our current holidays have become overly commercialized or have lost their deeper meaning. We need to invigorate our appreciation and understanding of America’s spirit. Anchored by the key dates of September 11 (the anniversary of the terrorists attacks) and September 17 (Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution by our Founding Fathers), the Schedule for each day has a separate focus. Patriot Week has captured the imagination and support of citizens across the nation. ​ Over 15 states have recognized Patriot Week with official gubernatorial and legislative proclamations and resolutions. Scores of K-12 schools (public, charter, private and home), universities, law schools, student groups, community organizations (Rotaries, Kiwanis, senior centers, religious, and others), cities, counties, courts, law firms, businesses, senior living communities, libraries, hospitals, historical groups, private homes, public officials, and others engage in a wide range of grassroots activities (including panel discussions, speakers, lesson plans, festivals, parades, picnics, commemorations, etc.). ​The grassroots effort is renewing the spirit of America, one person at a time, and is spreading throughout the nation. Participation has occurred in several states, with more to come! America's Survival Guide, How to Stop America's Impending Suicide by Reclaiming Our First Principles and History America's Survival Guide explains: * The challenges we face by surveying the overwhelming evidence of our ignorance and disdain of American history and First Principles as it affects: our K-12 system, higher education, the general public, media, and political class. * How the First Principles formed the philosophical basis of the Founding Fathers, including George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton , John Jay, Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, John Dickinson, James Wilson, Joseph Warren, and Benjamin Rush. And how John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, and Montesquieu contributed to the understanding of the Founding Fathers. * How the First Principles were the underlying cause of the American Revolution and became the foundation for our Federal Constitution. * How the First Principles formed the basis of the struggle for racial and gender equality, including the efforts of Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Reconstruction and the Radical Republican Congress, Martin Luther King,Jr., Abigail Adams, Sarah Grimke, Susan B. Anthony , and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Specific recommendations to combat the threat, including education, legal, media, holiday, nonprofit, and political reform. These innovative approaches include adopting an American Freedom Curriculum, reforming teacher preparation institutions, revising the bar exam, reorientating the media, and changing the political discourse. Together, the sections of America’s Survival Guide provide what we need to stop us from drinking our collective hemlock. History has captivated me since middle school. Fact is much stranger than fiction, and by learning history we can attempt to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past and improve society. History shows us where we have been, and where we can go (both good and bad). A people that does not know its history is lost, and America is definitely in danger of committing suicide because we don't understand the foundations of freedoms and liberties, and how unique America truly is.

4.8

In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions of listeners.
