Watch this brief interview from earlier this week with Dr. Carson on the O’Reilly Factor.

Dr. Carson is an award-winning pediatric neurosurgeon, New York Times best-selling author, and Presidential Medal of Honor recipient. He grabbed national headlines after delivering the keynote speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in February of this year. Standing mere feet away from President Barack Obama, Dr. Carson spoke truth to power when he discussed the importance of family, personal responsibility, and the dangers of political correctness.

Corbett Champions Marriage

Two recent attacks to marriage in Pennsylvania are being defended courageously by Governor Tom Corbett.

Gov. Corbett announced that the State Health Dept has filed a petition against D. Bruce Hanes, the register of wills in Montgomery County, challenging his willful defiance of our marriage law and the will of citizens across Pennsylvania. Corbett is also defending against the legal attack brought by the ACLU in the absence of the Attorney General who has failed to do her constitutional duty.

Please contact Governor Corbett to express your gratitude for standing up for marriage between one man and one woman.

These internships are paid.

Interested students should forward a resume and cover letter, or direct questions to: Emily Kreps, Policy Associate. E-mail: [email protected] or phone (717) 545-0600. Deadline to apply is AUGUST 21.

Wonderful week at City on the Hill – "absolutely life-changing experience"
