  • Its days like today when I think America is hanging by a thread. (Vanity)

    Its days like today when I think America is hanging by a thread. And that thread is the courageous and good man Donald Trump. I knew the media would deliberately lie about Charlottesville, but I didn't think the liberal republicans would too. Clearly I overestimated them. These cowardly republicans still have never learned. Their fate is tied to trump. They go against him and they can forget getting the vote of people like me ever again. (Sigh) maybe in America 2.0 we will insist on a media that isn’t a bunch of leftists lying filth. Until then, stock up for...
  • 10 Vintage Gun Ads that would be Banned in 2017

    Gun ads have changed with the times. Political correctness is certainly not the name of the game in these classic pieces of gun marketing. It was just plain old fashion advertising back in the day. Hammer the hammer? Lawyers wouldn’t come within a football field of this one. Of course, hammering on a vintage revolver probably is a bad idea anyway…Oh no, that guy is teaching his son how to hunt, you say? Where are their iphones, video games and couch? Well, buddy, this is how a father is supposed to raise his son to be a man, not a...
  • Dept. of Justice and the D.C. Swamp

    Which is why, if freedom is to survive in America, the U.S. Department of Justice must be drained. As an enabler of the D.C. Swamp, the U.S. Department of Justice must be drained first, if freedom is to survive in America. According to a Department of Justice (DoJ) website, a “somewhat enigmatic Latin motto” appears on the official seal of the department: Qui Pro Domina Justitia Sequitur. Its history, like the history of the seal itself, is unclear. One literal translation of the Latin is: “For the lady who pursues justice.” The DoJ website suggests it means “the Attorney-General prosecutes...

    When I talk about free speech, I often ask the audience two questions. First, did you know that the Supreme Court has been steadily expanding free-speech rights? Second, do you feel freer to speak now than you did five years ago? The answers are always the same — some variation of “no” and “heck, no.” The first assertion is undoubtedly true. Federal courts have consistently protected free speech from government interference and have been relentless in shutting down viewpoint discrimination. When government officials target speech because of a speaker’s views, they lose time and again. At the same time, millions...

    The Restored Republic Let the light of the Statue of Liberty always live in your heart, and never be taken from you “Never in the course of human endeavor, has one nation risen up to declare that every citizen is their own sovereign, where the powers of government, are subservient to the rights of the individual. Liberty is the light to freedom in a world of darkness and oppression. Liberty has a home, it’s called the United States of America.

    I wonder how young people would feel if they were forced to suffer such deprivation of food and freedom in a war or in a tyrannical government like communism, theocracy, or fascism? Would they still be so willing to be multicultural globalists? I was seated recently at a table of educated Romanians, late twenties and early thirties, lawyers, businessmen, teachers, engineers, doctors, and lobbyists for various globalist non-profits in D.C. We were celebrating the success of Romanian-Americans, a diaspora composed of individuals who belonged to my generation that escaped communism and others who were recent arrivals and successful entrepreneurs, people...

    Surely, if Islam is making any one statement, its most glaringly evident message is "NO TRESPASSING ALLOWED ON ISLAM!" As some are speculating, I will also guess that Officer Mohamed Noor, after hearing what might have sounded like a shot, may have believed Justine Damon had a gun in her hand as she leaned toward the squad car in her pajamas. If that was the case, his allegedly firing the shots that killed the unarmed Australian woman was simply the worst of judgments in the presence of panic. In saying all that, I’m straining - times 10 - to give...

    Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III first leaped onto the national stage when he became the first US Senator to endorse Donald Trump for president. Back then, Trump did not even have the Republican nomination wrapped up and was still considered a long shot by most. Jeff Sessions took a huge risk that eventually catapulted him to one of the most powerful positions in the nation. Unfortunately, his short time as Attorney General has been a disaster to say the least. Sessions quickly revealed to the public that his true character is somewhere between a 1930’s dictator and a movie villain. His...

    President Trump's administration, on orders to kill two regulations for every new one, ripped up the playbook during its first six months, eliminating 16 old rules for every new one, according to top officials. "It's really the beginning of a kind of fundamental regulatory reform and a reorientation of where we're going with regulation," said Neomi Rao, the newly installed administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Office of Management and Budget. In a briefing with a handful of reporters, Rao laid out the administration's regulation agenda, declaring, "It's a beginning ... you're going to see...

    Under a law signed on Wednesday, pro-life pregnancy centers in Hawaii will be forced to tell patients about free abortions provided by the state. And if they don't, they could face fines up to $1,000 dollars for a repeated offense. There are currently five pro-life centers in the state. "This clinic does not provide abortion services or abortion referrals. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate," reads the mandatory notification the centers will have to provide patients with. "Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to...

    When I read the president’s speech in Warsaw the other day, I was stunned. Who could have “thunk” it? Certainly in my lifetime, I have never read a presidential address that caught me by such surprise. It was the context that grabbed me. Western civilization has a context, and that’s what has been missing from presidential addresses for a long, long time, perhaps with the exception of Ronald Reagan. But this speech seems to grasp the contextual situation much better than Reagan did in terms of the full scope of the struggle for survival going on in our world. A...

    I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. Psalm 138:2 KJV “We want God”, was the chant of the Polish people when they were calling for their freedom from Soviet oppression during the prayers of Pope John Paul in Warsaw. They did not want money or jobs or handouts they wanted God who represented their freedom just as our forefathers wanted to worship God freely when they sailed to America. It is time for America to go back to God...
  • White "privilege" is a direct result of our American heritage and Judeo-Christian work ethic

    07/05/2017 11:16:25 AM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 34 replies
    "White privilege" (their term for self-sufficient productive people) is a direct result of our American heritage and Judeo-Christian work ethic and free market economy. America was founded on the Judeo-Christian principles of liberty, freedom, self-sufficiency, self-responsibility, self-governance, respect for God, respect for self, for each other and the law, civic responsibility and the value of family, church, tradition, education and hard work. The liberal/progressive/atheist/socialist democrats have been working overtime for a hundred years or more trying to tear all that down. They are teaching our children that there is no God, that government is all powerful and will provide for...

Charles Pope • July 3, 2017 • (credit: Rgoogin at Wikipedia)All across the United States on the Fourth of July, we celebrate freedom. In particular, freedom from tyranny, from government that is not representative, from unchecked power, and from unaccountable sovereigns.Yet as Christians, we cannot overlook that there are ways of understanding freedom today that are distorted, exaggerated, and detached from a proper biblical, Christian, or Natural Law context. Many modern concepts of freedom treat it as somewhat of an abstraction Yes, many...

    Seems like more Americans are engaging the political process. Politics is involved in every single aspect of your life. You may not be involved in politics, but rest assured, politics is involved in your life. You may live in the Land of Freedom, but you cannot do anything without the directive, tax, fee, regulation or authority of your government. From the moment you woke up this morning lying under those government-approved, fire-resistance sheets to driving your highly regulated car and arrive at your job at a business permitted by the State, everything is touched by your government. You cannot allow...

    My "Rewriting American History" column of a fortnight ago, about the dismantling of Confederate monuments, generated considerable mail. Some argued there should not be statues honoring traitors such as Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis, who fought against the Union. Victors of wars get to write the history, and the history they write often does not reflect the facts. Let's look at some of the facts and ask: Did the South have a right to secede from the Union? If it did, we can't label Confederate generals as traitors. Article 1 of the Treaty of Paris (1783), which...

    BERLIN — In a coordinated campaign across 14 states, the German police on Tuesday raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful postings over social media, including threats, coercion and incitement to racism. ... The raids come as Germans are debating the draft of a new social media law aimed at cracking down on hate speech, a measure that an array of experts said was unconstitutional at a parliamentary hearing on Monday. ... According to Mr. Mihr, Germany’s current instruments for persecuting hate speech, as demonstrated by Tuesday’s raids, are working. “The raid shows that we don’t need this...

    As a sociologist and legal scholar, I struggle to explain the boundaries of free speech to undergraduates. Despite the 1st Amendment—I tell my students—local, state, and federal laws limit all kinds of speech. We regulate advertising, obscenity, slander, libel, and inciting lawless action to name just a few. My students nod along until we get to racist and sexist speech. Some can’t grasp why, if we restrict so many forms of speech, we don’t also restrict hate speech. Why, for example, did the Supreme Court on Monday rule that the trademark office cannot reject “disparaging” applications—like a request from an...
