In an unprecedented show of bipartisan unity, 66 U.S. Senators – 2/3rds of the Senate – have sent a letter to Turkey’s President Erdoğan demanding the immediate release of wrongfully imprisoned American Pastor Andrew Brunson. The Senators’ letter echoes the frustration we’re all feeling at the way our supposed NATO ally Turkey is treating an innocent U.S. citizen. They’re calling out the ridiculous indictment against him containing no real evidence and relying on hearsay from mysterious “secret... read more

Violence against Christians in Pakistan just keeps escalating – this time with ISIS taking the credit – as mobs rule and the government continues to look the other way. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the cold-blooded assassination of a Christian family in Quetta, Pakistan the day after Easter. The family of four Christians who’d come to the city to visit relatives was riding in a rickshaw when reports say gunmen on motorcycles surrounded them on both sides and opened fire before speeding... read more

After telling us it found no records responsive to our request (something we later found out was a lie ), and then telling us that it found only a few documents (documents that implicated the DOJ in its own lie ), the FBI has now told a federal court that, for the first time in this case, it is going to search its “Central Records System.” In fact, the Deep State FBI claims it now needs more time to do that. Think about that for a minute. For the first time since July 2016, and after telling us... read more

It was revealed this week that CIA Director (and Secretary of State nominee) Mike Pompeo traveled Easter Weekend for personal talks with Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea. It was a surprising development, which comes as the United States and North Korea lay the groundwork for direct talks between President Trump and Kim. The Korean War never formally ended and tensions with the North have been higher than ever in the past year. The trip by Pompeo was an impressive diplomatic accomplishment... read more

Robert W. Welch, Jr. said, “For not only every democracy, but certainly every republic, bears within itself the seeds of its own destruction.” Welch’s argument was that the very openness and democratic ideals within a nation (or institution) carry with it the risk that the members will vote to diminish, or eliminate, the very things that brought them into existence in the first place. While the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO ) is not a country, it is an organization of countries who... read more

We’ve been telling you that the case of imprisoned American Pastor Andrew Brunson has reached the highest levels of the U.S. government. Last night, President Trump took to Twitter directly calling on Turkey and asking that “Pastor Andrew” “be allowed to come home,” stating that he is “being persecuted in Turkey for no reason.” Pastor Andrew Brunson, a fine gentleman and Christian leader in the United States, is on trial and being persecuted in Turkey for no reason. They call him a Spy, but I... read more

Imagine living day to day afraid for your own life because you worship Jesus Christ. To make matters worse, what if it is your own government that is sponsoring the threat, or even is the threat itself? Tragically, this is the reality millions of Christians face every day around the world. The ACLJ is fighting to put an end to these threats and protect individuals from persecution for their faith throughout the world. One of the ways we do that is by utilizing the Universal Periodic Review... read more

The legality of President Trump’s National Security Proclamation will be decided soon by the United States Supreme Court. The Court will hear oral argument on April 25th and should be issuing a decision by the end of June. In February, the American Center for Law and Justice (“ACLJ”) filed an amicus (friend-of-the-court) brief urging the Court to allow the full implementation of the Proclamation. The brief was filed with the support of close to 300,000 people who have joined the ACLJ’s... read more

After one day of trial, the situation just took a bleak turn for Pastor Andrew.

The judge refused to release Pastor Andrew. The judge ordered that the trial not resume until May 7th. read more
