Hillsdale College American Heritage Registration

Hillsdale deserves the appreciation of all who labor for freedom.
- Ronald Reagan

America has no better teacher on the Constitution than Hillsdale College.
- Sean Hannity

We the People need to understand what it really means to be free ... And who will teach us? You know who: Hillsdale College.
- Mark Levin

Hillsdale College symbolizes everything that is good and true in America ... [Y]ou extend to each new generation a commitment to those beliefs which the Founding Fathers enshrined at the very heart of your nation's life.
- Margaret Thatcher

Dear Friend of Liberty,

You are among the first in America to receive this exciting news: Hillsdale College has a brand new FREE online course!

I urge you to register right now, to learn what every American must know to preserve our...
President Ronald Reagan
The first class, taught by me, just began on Monday, February 25. BUT IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE. It is archived online so you can take each lecture at your leisure.

I'm eager to tell you more about this important and timely series, being offered online for the FIRST TIME -- Free!

But first, here's an interesting little test for you: Which President said the following? (HINT: It was during his Second Inaugural Address.)
"... each time we gather to inaugurate a president, we bear witness to the enduring strength of our Constitution.

"What makes us exceptional, what makes us America is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration .... We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

"The patriots of 1776 did not fight to replace the tyranny of a king with the privileges of a few, or the rule of a mob. They gave to us a republic, a government of, and by, and for the people. Entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed...."
Who comes to mind: Jefferson? Lincoln? Coolidge? Reagan?

Actually it's none of the above. It was Barack Obama.

Surprised? I was too.

How can a President of the United States use phrases like "unalienable rights" and government "of, by, and for the people," when all of his actions point away from a republic of liberty, and toward bureaucratic despotism.

President Obama's policies -- from Obamacare, to higher taxes and runaway debt, to increased regulation of the economy and of family life -- are in direct contradiction to these words in his second inaugural address.
President Obama can only get away with misusing the words of America's founders because too many Americans today have not been properly educated about our American Heritage.

And if this is allowed to continue, our great nation will continue to become less free and less prosperous, and the intrusive bureaucratic state will continue to grow.
To steer our nation in the right direction, Americans must once again be educated for liberty. That is why I implore you to...

Register for our new American Heritage course RIGHT NOW!

It couldn't be easier to register ... it's FREE ... and it's filled with lessons all Americans must learn or remember now in order to preserve our heritage of liberty for future generations.

You will agree, I'm sure, why this outstanding course is urgently needed today:
Because so many Americans - especially young people - have not been properly taught what made this country the freest and most prosperous nation on earth ...

... nor have they been properly taught the amazing achievements, heroic deeds, and great leaders that have made America what it is today ...

... nor have they been properly taught about how we have fallen away from living in a republic of liberty, and what that means.
As I mentioned, the course began this week on Monday, February 25, but it's not too late register because all of the lectures are archived. The first of the ten lectures - which I teach - is available for you to view now! A new class follows each Monday, which we will remind you of by email.

So prepare to be informed, challenged and inspired - and to discuss the course online with other Americans who are taking it!
Hillsdale's FREE new course:

Settlement to the Reagan Revolution
High praise for Hillsdale's Constitution courses from across America ...
"Hillsdale's courses have re-ignited a fire in my belly for our country, freedom and ultimately the search for truth; wherever it may lead. I am urging everyone I know to take advantage of these powerful tools, especially in light of our current political and social/cultural environment."
- David M.
"As a disabled Marine ... I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to expand my understanding of this great country and the document that defines and undergirds her."
"I have already resolved to share it [Hillsdale's Constitution courses] with my children. I realize that precious freedom is in grave jeopardy and the only way for it to be sustained for my children is to actively defend it against all enemies of liberty. Please continue the efforts of restoring our constitutional heritage ..."
- Mark W.
"I have been teaching social studies for twenty years and I wish I could require all of my students to take this course. The history taught in most of our schools and universities today is so slanted toward the progressive agenda. It is great to be able to get the other side of the story from Hillsdale."
- Loren W.
"As a United States Marine no longer on active duty, I want to say thank you for helping us defend and spread the incredible vision of the Founders ... Hillsdale has and will always have my continuing support and gratitude! God bless you all. Semper Fi"
- Robert D.
"Hillsdale, your work has just started. You are doing an excellent job and we are thirsting for more."
- Brian V.
"I am a high school, home-schooled, senior who took [the Constitution course] for this semester, and I really enjoyed it. I only took the final quiz once and got a 39/40, so obviously you do a great job with the lectures. Thank you ..."
- Jordan L.
"I learned more about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Founders' wisdom, and the 'Progressive' views ... than I did from my undergraduate and law school education. Thank you!"
- William W.
"Ignorance is the enemy of a free nation, and I sincerely appreciate you offering these free courses as a way to battle it. God bless!"
- Kelly E.
"As an adjunct professor of Philosophy in an aboundingly liberal secular University, I [brought] in some of these lectures to watch.... The students were respectful and listened. One said that this was the first time he had heard the 'conservative position' so well and reasonably explained. Another wished that more frank discussion on principled points could be maintained at the university instead of the politically correct suppression of ideas currently in vogue."
- E M, Norfolk, VA
"Thank you, Hillsdale College, for this wonderful course. I am a 69-year-old veteran of the Vietnam War. I do so worry about the world today and what it is becoming."
- Gary J, Arkansas

"Your Constitution lectures have been such an enrichment to me. The professors are a clear and easy to understand. I wish more people would understand the gift of liberty the Founding Fathers gave us."
- Laura D.
"Overall, this course was fabulous. I enjoyed the lectures. 40 minutes is good limit ... The reading selections were again superb. The tests were fun. I'm on to Western History ... Thank you, VERY, VERY MUCH FOR DOING THIS!"
- Martin M.

When you register for this new online course - American Heritage -you'll also find out how to get a copy of Hillsdale's outstanding 882-page American Heritage Reader, the companion book for the course. It's the same book our undergraduate students study, with hundreds of original historic documents - the Northwest Ordinance, Thomas Jefferson's First Inaugural Address, former slave Frederick Douglass' Fourth of July speech, notable speeches by Lincoln, Coolidge, Reagan and many more. I strongly encourage you to get your own copy.

As Rush Limbaugh says: "If you want to get the most out of Hillsdale's new course, you need to have their American Heritage Reader!"

Here at Hillsdale, we take the threat to liberty in America today very seriously. And so we are reaching out across the nation, educating citizens to understand and defend America's founding principles and its heritage of liberty and limited government.

You and I must be equipped to defend and pass on America's heritage to our children and grandchildren ... to prepare them to be worthy of the blessings of liberty.

Today, we are at a dangerous crossroads. Will America continue down its current path toward bureaucratic despotism? Or will we regain an appreciation for the principles of liberty and limited government?

Over 100 years of Progressive education has brought us to this place today... but education is also the solution!

And education -- of a kind the Founders' envisioned - is what Hillsdale College has been providing since 1844 and continues to provide today.

That is why we launched this nationwide educational outreach, including FREE online courses on the U.S. Constitution, our Western Heritage, and now on American Heritage...

... bringing in over half a million registrants in our "virtual nationwide classroom" so far ...

... and now we want to boost that to ONE MILLION well-informed Americans - including you and your friends and family and co-workers!

You can help us reach that goal by

Registering for our new American Heritage course HERE!

As I said earlier, America is at a historic moment, a moment when our liberty is at stake.

America has faced similar crises before, and our liberty has survived because our people reached back and rededicated themselves to the best in our American heritage.

But what do you think about America's chances of passing today's test?

Do you think Americans will be able to turn back the progressive assault on our founding principles, our history, and our Constitution? If they are, I believe that education in our American heritage will be the key.

That's why it's vital that all citizens be educated and equipped to understand, explain and defend why America is exceptional in terms of freedom and prosperity ... and what we must do to continue to enjoy the blessings of liberty.

And that is why I urge you to...

Register for Hillsdale's newest online course: "AMERICAN HERITAGE - From Colonial Settlement to the Reagan Revolution"

You'll enjoy learning from Hillsdale's truly outstanding faculty, using the same American Heritage Reader all Hillsdale students are required to study, regardless of their major.

Each of the ten lectures in this course runs only about 40 minutes ... yet they cover the best of our American heritage -- the heritage that has enabled America to prosper for over 235 years!

Every week you can also watch special question-and-answer sessions with the professor featured in that week's lecture. Questions from viewers like you will be selected from our online discussion board.

And yes, the lectures and Q & A sessions are free for you. As are the readings, quizzes, study guides, and other materials.

Don't have time to watch on the day the course goes online? Don't worry! We archive every class, including the Q & A sessions, so you can watch at your convenience.

So please, Sign up for this FREE online course today and learn about America's rich heritage from Colonial Settlement to the Reagan Revolution.

You will be partnering with Hillsdale College to educate Americans for liberty and self-government.

That's what we do every single day here at Hillsdale, since our College's founding in 1844. That's how long we've been "pursuing truth and defending liberty" through education, in order to preserve the blessings of liberty that have made America exceptional in terms of freedom and prosperity.

In that tradition, Hillsdale College steadfastly refuses all government funding - even in the form of government subsidized student grants or loans.

That's one reason why, for many years, so many leading champions of freedom have spoken at Hillsdale events ...

From Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and William F. Buckley, Jr. ...

... to Walter Williams, Edwin Meese, George Will, Mike Pence, Michelle Malkin, Paul Ryan and so many more.

Today, Hillsdale is advancing the cause of liberty even further by enrolling over 500,000 Americans for our free online courses on the Constitution and on our Western and American heritage...

...which, with your help, we will soon grow to ONE MILLION!

Please join Hillsdale's growing, nationwide classroom by
Signing up for this FREE online course!

The more Americans who join you in these lessons, the more Americans we equip to help preserve our priceless American Heritage.

We will fail our nation and surrender liberty for our children if we forget the best of our American heritage ... if we fail to learn from the great men and women on whose shoulders we stand today.

That's what the Progressive movement's assault on America's founding principles and American history attempts to do, even today: make us forget - or even be ashamed of - our American heritage. It's what Progressives have been doing for over a century.

To preserve America's Heritage - to save what you and I love so much about our country - we must know and understand the principles of liberty that made possible the greatest country in human history, and help our fellow citizens to do so as well.

Won't you please do your part today and Sign up for this FREE online course?

It will take all of us - you and me - working together, doing our utmost to save our constitutional republic...

... so that we preserve our priceless American Heritage for future generations!

Yours for liberty,

Dr. Larry P Arnn

"A republic, if you can keep it."

Environmentalism and Human Sacrifice
By: Dennis Prager

Last week, Bjorn Lomborg, the widely published Danish professor and director of one of the world's leading environmental think tanks, the Copenhagen Consensus Center, published an article about the Philippines' decision, after 12 years, to allow genetically modified (GM) rice -- "golden rice" -- to be grown and consumed in that country. The reason for the delay was environmentalist opposition to GM rice; and the reason for the change in Philippine policy was that 4.4 million Filipino children suffer from vitamin A deficiency. That deficiency, Lomborg writes, "according to the World Health Organization, causes 250,000 to 500,000 children to go blind each year. Of these, half die within a year."

60 Plus Quarterly Update
By: 60 Plus Association

It's a New Year across America, but little has changed in Washington, with President Obama and Senate leader Harry Reid (D-NV) obstinately standing against reining in government spending, and senior citizens scheduled to get walloped with higher taxes and the effects of Obamacare as more facets of the healthcare law continue to be rolled out. Obama's January 21 inaugural address was a cattle-call to move forward with every item on the liberal special interest wish list, but despite his tough talk, 60 Plus and millions of our senior activists will be standing in the way of his agenda!

5 Sequester Facts to Know Before Committing Suicide
By: Nick Gillespie & Meredith Bragg

To hear President Barack Obama tell it, the impending $85 billion in spending cuts to the federal budget known as the sequester are the worst disaster since Seth MacFarlane hosted the Academy Awards. But before you dive deep into depression, here are five facts that should take the sting out of the sequester.

The Christian Publishing Company with a Vision
By: BJU Press

In the early 1970s it became apparent that if there were to be academically solid, biblically sound science textbooks, Christian teachers of science would have to write them. George Mulfinger and Emmett Williams, two Christian university professors, agreed and were commissioned to write a high school physical science textbook. At that time the University Press—as BJU Press was called years ago—had been publishing a few books and booklets by theologians. The machinery—human and otherwise—producing books, booklets, and a periodical, Faith for the Family, was called upon to help prepare the science text manuscript for printing.

Obama: Fear the Sequester Cuts!
By: Howard Kurtz

Appearing before hardhat-wearing shipyard workers in Newport News, Va., the president tried to step up pressure on the GOP to avoid the so-called sequester that hits Friday. Following the all-politics-is-local rule, Obama pointed out that 90,000 Virginia defense workers will face furloughs if the cuts are allowed to stand. In a new twist, the president reacted to an emerging Republican plan to give the administration more flexibility in carrying out the $85 billion in cutbacks slated for his year. That, of course, would shift political responsibility to the White House. And Obama wasn't buying, saying the time frame was too short to give him anything other than unpalatable choices.
