Blackstone Institute - Founder and President
www.blackstoneinstitute.org, 29 Mar 2015 [cached]
Dr. Virginia Armstrong Blackstone Institute's president, Dr. Virginia Armstrong, has had a distinguished academic career as Director and Senior Professor of Legal Studies and Political Science at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas. She now devotes her attention to the Eagle Forum's Court Watch Project of which she is the National Chairman and to the Blackstone Institute, which she founded.
Dr. Armstrong also founded the Texas Undergraduate Moot Court Association and HSU's Legal Studies Program and served as the first Chairman of each organization. As a college professor, Dr. Armstrong taught a number of advanced law courses, including constitutional history and law, legal philosophy, and the judicial process. She directed HSU's federal court internship program and coached the University's award-winning moot court team. And she drafted several of the cases argued in TUMCA tournaments across Texas, most notably those involving "homosexual rights" and the "right to assisted suicide. Her students dubbed her "an intellectual Rambo."
Dr. Armstrong now has become a national pioneer in constitutional and jurisprudential apologetics. Much of her current work focuses on the design of short but dynamite-packed studies appealing to, and appropriate for, use by Americans in our fast-paced life today. Dr. Armstrong is expanding the use of the worldview model to understand the egregious court decisions spewing from America's Humanist judges and how Judeo-Christian worldview proponents should respond more effectively. She also continues to develop ways of expanding the use of Internet capabilities for researching, creating, and teaching constitutional and jurisprudential apologetics. Her audiences range from high school homeschoolers to attorneys and judges.
A high school and university honor graduate, Dr. Armstrong holds the Ph.D. in political science and public law. She wrote both her master's degree thesis and doctoral dissertation on the U. S. Supreme Court. The Eagle Forum has twice granted her its National Service Award "with appreciation for your dedicated work for God, home, and country. She received the Liberty Bell Award from the Abilene, Texas, Young Lawyers Association and was a finalist for the Texas Liberty Bell Award, given "to an outstanding nonlawyer for efforts in his/her community to strengthen the American system of justice. She has won numerous scholarly and professional honors. Among these are listings in Outstanding Young Women of America, Outstanding Educators of America, and Who's Who Among America's Teachers (joining only 1% of America's educators to be listed in consecutive editions of this publication, whose honorees are selected by outstanding students for "making a significant impact and difference in students' lives").
Dr. Armstrong contributes actively to several constitutional/judicial reform efforts. She authored an amicus curiae brief to the U.S. Supreme Court urging the over-turning of Roe v. Wade, and she served as the constitutional issues specialist on the Roe Media Advisory Committee. She is also involved in the effort to pass Congressional court-curbing measures and to secure the appointment of constitutionalist judges.
Dr. Armstrong has written and spoken widely on legal and constitutional topics and Christian apologetics. She has hosted her own daily radio commentary and has written regular columns for various publications. She has authored other works for a variety of organizations, including the American Family Association, the Christian Legal Society, the Simon Greenleaf School of Law (now the Trinity Law School), the South Texas Law School, the Eagle Forum, Probe Ministries, the Northeastern Political Science Association, the Western Political Science Association, and the Southwest Political Science Association.
On their furloughs from the Culture War, Dr. Armstrong and her husband, Gerry, a college administrator, enjoy music, reading, horseback riding, hiking, water skiing, and snowshoeing.

Eagle Forum Court Watch Chairman, Dr. Virginia Armstrong, who is also the founder and President of the Blackstone Institute, taught a small group leadership training session using a free internet video-conferencing technology called Skype. On Feb. 12, Virginia taught the three-hour interactive workshop from her home in Abiline, TX to a leadership group in the Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX metroplex. The Skype internet-conference workshop was a follow-up to a "Blackstone Blitz Workshop on Reviving the Constitution," which Virginia taught live to 125 people in the metroplex in January. Blackstone's unique and compelling "Reviving the Constitution! events emphasize "learning for action," and can range from a half-day workshop to a dinner/luncheon presentation. Virginia can teach live or through Skype.
