A high school district in Northern California has sent a notification to parents telling them that their homeschooled children are not lawfully being educated.

When the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) received word that all of its member families in the San Benito High School District (SBHSD) received a letter from state authorities declaring that they were illegally educating their children, attorneys from the nonprofit group were perplexed.

After one homeschool graduate applied to the Ohio Business College, admissions officials promptly denied her acceptance, demanding that she must first acquire a GED before they would consider her admittance.

Homeschool grad Ashlynne Perkins was distraught when she received the following notification from Ohio Business College's admissions office, which informed her that her application was rejected because she did not have a GED. "We are unable to accept Ashlynne's application due to the fact that she did not graduate from an accredited high school," the letter from the college read, according to the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA).

I began fielding questions about the legality of homeschooling in California early last week. At first, I did not think much of it because it was just one high profile Canary Party vaccine activist from another state that had heard a rumor.

It was in regards to an assembly bill that was rumored to be recently resurrected here in California. I promptly looked up that assembly bill and found that it ended up being a bill from last year's legislative session that was about funding for charter schools.

Ever questioned why alcohol, more of a "gateway drug" than marijuana is, continues to be legal despite the reality that it has been proven to promote aggressiveness and contribute to lots of social ills, including domestic violence and auto accidents?

Isn't it amusing that a lot of nations have legalized something as destructive and addictive as alcohol and not as safe as cannabis? Here are 5 reasons alcohol, the most dangerous drug, is sold openly and why nobody is objecting to it.

A group of San Diego parents has filed a federal lawsuit against California's new law that eliminates nearly all exemptions to childhood vaccinations.

The suit was filed Friday, the day the law took effect. It asks the court to declare the law unconstitutional. The lawsuit claims that eliminating the personal and religious exemptions to childhood vaccines violates parental rights. It also argues that the plaintiffs have legitimate concerns about the timing and safety of mandated vaccines.

Russian Christians are praying and fasting in hopes of keeping their religious freedoms in tact. Earlier this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that bans all evangelism outside of churches.

The law, which takes affect on July 20, states that no religious proselytizing can occur in Russia except with a license; and then, only within the four walls of a government-recognized church building. The law is aimed at protecting the country from terrorism, but ultimately restricts all religious preaching and teaching outside of church buildings. According to reports, some Christians have stated that they will defy the law and keep evangelizing.

Under the cover of darkness, just hours after Hillary Clinton was handed a get-out-of-jail-free card by the FBI for committing felony crimes, the Senate quietly voted 63-30 to preempt state law in direct violation of the Tenth Amendment.

Senator Jeff Merkley wasn't afraid to call a spade a spade in the aftermath of the treasonous vote, which was further buried in the news cycle by Obama's latest attempt at race-baiting in order to abolish the Second Amendment. Merkley told the media that the so-called Roberts-Stabenow Bill, also known as the Monsanto DARK Act 2.0, is a farce, and will do nothing to protect consumers who want to know what they're eating.

The pending "compromise" GMO labeling bill has food safety and consumer advocates both in and out of government scrambling to block the legislation, which they warn will destroy popular efforts to label products made with genetically modified (GMO) ingred

The legislation is seen as a direct threat to a GMO labeling law passed in Sanders' home state of Vermont, which is slated to take effect on Friday. Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, also from Vermont, on Tuesday declared his opposition to the legislation.

State lawmakers on Thursday handed Mayor Rahm Emanuel broad authority to create special taxing districts to help pay for four major rail projects, but the mayor and his administration would not detail how much money would be diverted.

The legislation, which lawmakers passed as part of a compromise on a stopgap state budget and an education funding bill, is designed to help City Hall come up with money it needs to match requirements to receive federal transportation grants and loans, Emanuel said. But the measure also grants the mayor and City Council wide discretion to create the so-called tax-increment finance districts within a one-mile-wide swath of land along 46 miles of Chicago Transit Authority rail lines throughout the city. The districts, which could remain in place for up to 35 years, would siphon off 80 percent of property tax revenue within their boundaries (with the exception of taxes for Chicago Public Schools) and dedicate the money toward four major transit projects.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed six stringent gun-control measures Friday that will require people to turn in high-capacity magazines and mandate background checks for ammunition sales, as California Democrats seek to strengthen gun laws.

Brown vetoed five other bills, including requirement to register homemade firearms and report lost or stolen weapons to authorities. The Democratic governor's action is consistent with his mixed record on gun control . Some of the enacted bills duplicate provisions of a November ballot measure by Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. Some of the vetoed measures also appear in Newsom's initiative.
