    If and when Obama ever leaves office, he will return to what he’s always been: a street community organizer working to take America down from within The very first day after an activism coup d’etat captured America in what all thought was just another presidential election, the day-to-day life of its citizens began taking a nosedive downhill, never to return. It wasn’t another president who was elected on Nov. 4, 2008, it was the official election of Community Activism. Nowhere is proof of presidency by Community Activism more visible than it is in Ferguson, Missouri. Community Activism gets to shy...

    The Star-Spangled Banner will once again wave at the University of California, Irvine, after student government leaders nixed a bid to ban the American flag from a campus lobby. Members of the executive cabinet of the Associated Students of UC Irvine met Saturday in an emergency session to reverse the flag ban.

    See Map Here: In 2007, and with that same nauseating arrogance that has come to define him, then presidential candidate Barack Obama duplicitously quipped, “I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are just so ’90s. Their days are growing dark.” Dark, indeed. America’s soon-to-be cultural-Marxist-in-chief would then spend the greater part of a decade waging war against our nation’s Judeo-Christian culture and heritage at levels, and in ways, unseen in our storied history. Today, his anti-Christian crusade continues unabated. In fact, and with less than two years left to complete his baleful conspiracy, this neo-pagan extremist has begun to...

    United Liberty ^ | 12/30/14 | Matthew Hurtt
    The American experiment in self-governance relies heavily on an engaged and informed citizenry, who understand the philosophical foundations of individual liberty. This is why it is important to read philosophers like Frederic Bastiat, John Stuart Mill, John Locke, Adam Smith, and others, as well as the writings of our Founders. Without historical context, we cannot understand the foundation of liberty. And without an understanding of the foundation of liberty, we cannot partake in civic engagement. As citizens, we are given rights from our Creator — but with those rights come certain responsibilities. These are civic duties.

    We expect secular humanists and others like them to celebrate the idea of tolerance as the greatest good, but sadly many believers have also hopped on to this foolish bandwagon. It is as if the greatest virtue is now tolerance and the greatest vice is intolerance. Well, it is time for some straight thinking here. In fact, it’s time to get biblical as well. Just today I read the words of Jesus in which he praised intolerance. Yep, you heard me right. In his words to the Church in Thyatira he praised their ‘faith, service and perseverance,’ but he went...

    Was 2014 a year of darkness in America? Or was it a year of hidden promise? I think it’s the latter, because there are many hopeful harbingers for 2015. Despite some disturbing, jaw-dropping events of the past year, we really aren’t at the mercy of cowardly Republicans, demonic Democrats, vicious feminists and homosexual bullies. These fools present great challenges to American culture, to freedom and to the rule of law, but in many ways, they are in self-destruction mode. While we pray for any individuals who can be pulled out of the coming fire, let’s assist their causes toward a...

    The United Nations is holding climate talks in Lima, Peru, featuring delegates from 190 countries. To get their attention, the anti-science extremists of Greenpeace illegally entered a prohibited area adjacent to one of the most famous Nazca Lines. The activists trampled across the fragile, 1,500-year-old site to install large cloth letters reading: “Time for Change; The Future is Renewable.” To put it mildly, Peruvian officials are not amused.

    A parent at St. Paul's Nova Classical Academy alleges the charter school violated his sixth-grade daughter's right to free speech when administrators prohibited her from passing out anti-abortion fliers. The parent, Nicholas Zinos of St. Paul, has sued the school in federal court on behalf of the girl. Nova policy requires administrator approval before students hand out or post materials at school, the lawsuit states. In a letter to Zinos, the school's top administrator said the school has come to limit political, religious and controversial speech to its high school students in response to parental concerns. The lawsuit alleges the...

    Third in the "Fortune Favors the Bold" series The midterm elections are upon us - and they offer us no relief. Perhaps Harry Reid will be unseated (please, Lord). But the Establishment informs us “impeachment is a dead letter.” Without impeachment, then what? Bill after bill may be passed. Obama will veto most if not all. How can we believe more legislation will relieve us from the misery born of prior legislation—that more Congressional activity will relieve us from the disastrous effects of prior Congressional activity?

    Suburban Albany is not known for its rip-roaring weekend scene, but this most recent Saturday night, it was the momentary center of the political universe, as an underfunded political party was using its quadrennial convention to try to force America’s most powerful and best-financed governor to submit to its demands. Though the Working Families Party’s conventions are typically low-key affairs, this one had drawn 800 activists and operatives and most of the New York press corps—all to see if the party would endorse conservative Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo or run a third-party candidate against him. In the end, when the...

    The Christian organization Focus on the Family is releasing a movie in theaters May 6 called “Irreplaceable” about the value of traditional families, the importance of fathers being engaged in their children’s lives and the healing power of forgiveness. But apparently to some advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, community, that’s a cardinal sin. LGBT advocates have launched an effort to disparage the movie online, petition against it and work to make sure “Irreplaceable” isn’t seen in your local theater. Focus President Jim Daly reports in a blog post that some of the more than 700...

Fakectivism is social media activism by small numbers of people that is integrated into the news cycle because it matches the media’s political agenda.Every Tea Party member knows that media coverage of actual protests is unequal. Twenty students, most of them volunteers at an environmental non-profit, protesting Keystone will get media coverage that a thousand Tea Party members protesting ObamaCare won’t receive.The same is true of online protests.Many of the real life protests covered by the media are fake....

    These days there aren't too many big pro-family victories to celebrate. But Sunday's St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Boston was one of them! It went wonderfully. The organizers stood up to the politicians and the rabid media who tried relentlessly to force them to include overt homosexual activist groups in their traditional Catholic, pro-family parade. And in the end many others stood with them. Labor unions, small businesses, several politicians, and an almost endless procession of military, religious, school, and other groups proudly marched before huge, cheering crowds.

    The revolutionary guerilla network, the Sons of Liberty, was a grassroots reaction to unjust taxation. It got off to a roaring start in 1765 by burning the Boston commissioner of stamps in effigy, and burning his home and offices to the ground. These first Tea Partiers invented American gonzo. Some smeared with paint and sporting feathers, in December of 1773 they dumped the equivalent of $1,000,000 worth of tea into Boston Harbor to protest the British Tea Act. But because the ships were owned by Americans, they were not damaged, and the decks were swept clean when the festivities ended....

    If you really want to have an impact on something you stand a much better chance if you're prepared. The same goes for party activism. I've written quite a bit about the importance of getting involved in a political party, and about how parties are organized. But how do you go about trying to be effective over the long haul? What should you do? What should you focus on, and why? The Boy Scout motto "Be prepared" comes to mind in the sense of being prepared ahead of time for the situations they may face.

The success of the homosexual movement depends absolutely on the successful execution of this plan, because the entire gay-lesbian population is only about 1.5% of the general population and could not possibly wield much power and influence by itself.

    There are, generally speaking, two kinds of sin. There are sins of commission and there are sins of omission. From my perspective – and I think it's the biblical perspective – we Christians commit a sin of omission if we remain passive as our culture becomes "given over to a reprobate mind." When we seek to be loved by the world – when we follow the Princeton model and take the wide path to "mainstream" acceptance – we abdicate our duty to "fight the good fight." Indeed, we are in a spiritual war for our culture. It is a war...

    Add two more activists to Russian President Vladimir Putin's most wanted: Left Front members Sergei Udaltsov and Leonid Razvozzhayev were charged by federal prosecutors with organizing anti-United Russia parties on May 6, 2012, two months after the election of Putin. They might face 10 years in prison as a result.

    I have been thinking of late about the coming Fourth of July holiday. (AKA: Independence Day) With the current state of the nation and our daily loss of freedoms once guaranteed I don’t really feel like celebrating something we no longer have. It feels like going to a wedding anniversary dinner knowing the couple both cheat. So what to do? Not go out, ignore the day, throw my hands up and just go with the flow? None of these seem to be acceptable options. What about some form of protest to show the country and our “leaders” I will not...

    This essay is a call to citizens to put real work, ingenuity, and community above false promises and disgraced authority. Empowerment, in this essay, is not about pumping up self-esteem but rather equipping citizens to take control of the global economy. When political and economic leaders fail to act effectively, we will have to be the ones to succeed. Capitalism stands and falls upon care, not the superficial “I-feel-your-pain” type, but the deep, committed “I-give-a-damn” type. What does it mean to give a damn? “I give a damn” means: I get broadly and deeply involved, I refuse to ignore what...

    An all-too-familiar scene was enacted on the campus of Swarthmore College during a meeting on May 4 to discuss demands by student activists for the college to divest itself of its investments in companies that deal in fossil fuels. As a speaker was beginning a presentation to show how many millions of dollars such a disinvestment would cost the college, student activists invaded the meeting, seized the microphone, and shouted down a student who rose in the audience to object. Although there were professors and administrators in the room — including the college president — apparently nobody had the guts...

    Think you know what's in your grocery cart? Think again. Or use the Buycott app to check. Know where your consumer dollars go with the free Buycott app. Supermarkets are labyrinthine behemoths laid out in a convenient linear fashion. So where's the maze? On the supermarket shelves, of course. Food products galore stare back at us, silently appealing to our penchants for sugar, salt, and fat. We pick and choose, knowing full well what we are getting into. But it's the hidden components that are increasingly becoming a salient issue. If supermarket shelves are overwhelming due to the sheer diversity...
  • Music of the Jewish Diaspora

    Shearith Israel, the very first Jewish Congregation in America, hosts its 2nd annual “Music of The Jewish Diaspora” performance, featuring the Salome Chamber Orchestra. The Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue presents an evening of elegance and sophistication. Set inside the luxurious main sanctuary, a room built to hold 700 people, yet because of its architecture, creates a uniquely intimate setting and vibrant acoustic. The Salome Orchestra, just as Shearith Israel, exquisitely blends the classic culture and history in its roots with the modern spice of our new age. Musical influence has always been a strong aspect of Sephardic culture and is...
