    The Pennsylvania Assembly ordered it to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Quaker leader William Penn founding the Colony in 1701 and writing the Charter of Privileges. Quakers were the first and strongest voices to end slavery.  In 1751, Pennsylvania's Assembly declared a "Year of Jubilee" and commissioned the bell to be put in the Philadelphia State House. Speaker Isaac Norris read the Leviticus chapter 25 verse 10: "And ye shall make hallow the fiftieth year, and PROCLAIM LIBERTY THROUGHOUT ALL THE LAND unto all the inhabitants thereof; it shall be a jubilee." "Jubilee" in the Israelite calendar was, after...

    In 1778, British Captain James Cook discovered Hawaii, which he named "The Sandwich Islands" in honor of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich -- the acting First Lord of the Admiralty. Captain Cook was killed on his third visit to Hawaii in 1779. When Captain Cook's voyages were read in England they raised awareness of new lands. This inspired a missionary movement, led by William Carey, who took the Gospel to India in 1793. The Hawaiian Islands were united by King Kamehameha I in 1810. In 1819, King Kamehameha I died. His wife, Kaʻahumanu, and his son, Liholiho (King...

    Calls to ban statues, flags and images of groups that were involved in slavery would have to include the Democrat Party's Donkey and Islam's Crescent, as both of these institutions were involved in the enslavement of Africans. Beginning in colonial times, approximately 350,000 African slaves were brought to America. This number grew to nearly 4 million slaves prior to the Civil War. Slaves were purchased at sharia Muslim slave markets. Sharia Islam defended the right to own slaves, as its founder, Mohammed, owned slaves. Beginning in 622 AD, the next 1,400 years saw an estimated 180 million Africans enslaved in...

    Both served in the Continental Congress and both signed the Declaration of Independence. Both served as U.S. Ministers in France. One was elected the 2nd President and the other the 3rd. Once political enemies, they became close friends in later life. An awe swept America when they both died on the same day, JULY 4, 1826, exactly 50 years since they approved the Declaration of Independence. Their names were John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson's handwritten Declaration of Independence used the wording "inalienable" rights as seen in the copies at the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia, the New York...
  • Choosing Self-Reliance: New NICS Record

    June 2020 set another all-time background check record. The FBI NICS office ran 3,931,607 total background checks last month, breaking the previous record by nearly two-hundred-thousand checks. The number of background checks run by the FBI has surpassed 3 million in a month four times. Three of those times have been this year. There have been 38% more checks in January through June of this year than during the same time period last year, and we have already hit 67% of the total number of checks run last year. Last year, you may recall, was the busiest year for...

    38-year-old King George III ruled the largest empire that planet earth had ever seen. The Declaration of Independence, signed JULY 4, 1776, listed 27 reasons why Americans declared their independence from the King: -He has made judges dependent on his will alone ... -He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. -He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies ... -To subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution ... -For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us ... -For...

    Police should not operate as an occupying army The public outrage following the killing of George Floyd has refocused many in Congress and the public on the need for police reform. Some of the proposals are simply outrageous, such as abolishing the police or defunding police departments seen by some as systemically racist institutions incapable of reform. Other reforms make sense and are long overdue. Among these are proposals to put a halt to measures that have seemingly transformed many departments into quasi-military forces that act and are seen by those they are supposed to protect as an occupying military...

    American Thinker ^ | June 26, 2020 | J.R. Dunn
    But the Left assessed their opponent poorly. Instead of exploding, the President behaved like the leader of a federal republic, demanding that the states and cities fulfill their responsibilities to the citizenry while assuring the public that he was ready to move if necessary. The cities in which Antifa has run wild Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis are all hyperliberal environments to which the President owes nothing and whose governments have uniformly displayed contempt for Trump personally along with sympathy for the insurgents. This left the President with absolutely no reason to intervene. To paraphrase a previous statesman who confronted...

    ...Anyone who belongs to a protected group is seen as a perpetual victim and must not be judged at all. That may seem like a better position but ironically it doesnt provide any protection at all. It treats the person as an infantilized adult. If one is robbed of personal responsibility, one can never be truly free...

    "We have seen the treacherous use of the 'fifth column' by which persons supposed to be peaceful visitors were actually a part of an enemy unit of occupation ... ... These trouble-breeders have but one purpose. It is to divide our people into hostile groups and to destroy our unity and shatter our will to defend ourselves." - Franklin D. Roosevelt. The term "fifth column” referred to ancient warfare, where two columns of soldiers were in the middle of the battlefield, with two flanks on either side. The fifth column was spies who had infiltrated the enemy camp to demoralize...

    "Don't Shoot Until You See the Whites of Their Eyes!" commanded Colonel William Prescott, repeating the order of General Israel Putnam, JUNE 17, 1775. Colonel William Prescott's men were in the center redoubt located on Breed's Hill, adjacent Bunker Hill, guarding the north entrance to Boston Harbor. Samuel Swett wrote in his History of Bunker Hill, that as the 2,300 British soldiers advanced: "The American marksmen are with difficulty restrained from firing. Putnam rode through the line, and ordered that no one should fire till they arrived within eight rods ... Powder was scarce and must not be wasted. They...

I have thought that a meeting of your wise men once or twice a year would be alike useful to you ... I now send my best wishes to the Cherokees, and pray the Great Spirit to preserve them. Twelve of the original 13 states sent delegates to Philadelphia. (Rhode Island boycotted the Convention.) Instead of rewriting the Articles of Confederation,...

    England was invaded by "Dane" Vikings from Scandinavia who destroyed churches, libraries and defeated all opposition except for 23-year-old King Alfred. Forced into the swampy, tidal marshes of Somerset, Alfred, King of the Anglos and Saxons, began a resistance movement in 878 AD. According to biographer Bishop Asser: "Alfred attacked the whole pagan army fighting ferociously in dense order, and by divine will eventually won the victory." King Alfred's battle song was: "When the enemy comes in a'roarin' like a flood, Coveting the kingdom and hungering for blood,  The Lord will raise a standard up and lead His people...

    If only we did not have these race issues all our problems would go away! Wrong. Satan loves communism and group think governments. China,NK, Germany, Cambodia, Soviet russia all were led to communism or Nazi or whatever without using race. Race is the best tool Satan can use to take us down this path. It seems to be working. But make no mistake that if we had no race issue that Satan would have tooled away at a different angle to take us down the group think road. It is inevitable that eventually free thinkers and free people will have...
