    Copano Bay Press ^ | 1860 | Francisco Antonio Ruiz
    181 years ago, March 6, 1836, the Alamo garrison fell, and the fortress that had been a mission became a shrine. Francisco Antonio Ruiz was the Acalde (mayor) of San Antonio. He was an eyewitness to the events of that day. Twenty-four years later, in 1860, Don Poncho (as Ruiz was known), recounted what he had seen for the Texas Almanac. Below is his account in full. Remember the Alamo! Fall of the Alamo, and Massacre of Travis and His Brave Associates by Francisco Antonio Ruiz Translated by J. A. Quintero On the 6th of March at 3 a.m. General...

    President is the TARGET of the most dangerous group of EXTREMISTS on earth: our liberal press, television/entertainment The left’s HATRED of Donald Trump has gone beyond ‘art form’ and has progressed into a sick competition to win approval from fellow Trump haters and the liberal news-media/entertainment industry that have invented the new sport of Trump HATE. It’s quite obvious that the object of that HATE is to chastise the Donald and anyone who dared to act like a FREE AMERICAN. Just as I had diagrammed it in my last article, Trump HATE is gaining momentum with each morning’s freshly disparaging...

    “We, the People . . .” are the three most powerful words in the history of world governments. It was the promise of a new way of self-governance; a profoundly unique experiment born of America’s 13 colonies and defended with the blood of Patriots. But today, battles rage among a divided people over an array of issues. At the center of the conflict is an oversized American government no longer bound by constitutional limits and retaining only a vague recollection of the finite powers delegated to it at the time of its creation. As Americans we should honor and celebrate...
  • Have we misunderstood the Declaration of Independence? Princeton professor claims

    Has America spent the last few hundred years misunderstanding the Declaration of Independence? That's what Danielle Allen, a professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, believes. According to Allen, the paragraph beginning 'We hold these truths to be self-evident' has been misinterpreted thanks to a rogue period that was not in the original document. And that could completely transform our understanding of how the Founding Fathers viewed the role of government, The New York Times reported.
  • Four Times the Declaration of Independence Mentions God, and Why It Matters

    Many historians call the Founding Fathers "Deists," and many of them were not true Christians -- after all, Thomas Jefferson tore all the miracles out of the Gospels! But judging by the Declaration of Independence, our Founders were more religious than many think: our founding document mentions God no less than four times.This is not to say America was founded as an explicitly Christian nation -- the federal government has never had an established religion. But the Jewish and Christian understandings of God deeply influenced the founding generation, and that influence radiates from the Declaration of Independence.Here are the four...

    During the Bretton Woods Conference, in 1944, Lord Halifax is said to have “whispered to Lord Keynes: ‘It’s true: they have the money bags but we have all the brains.’” By “they,” Halifax meant the Americans. His frustration with the American mind—often prosaic and anti-intellectual—during the critical Bretton-Woods negotiations seems as valid today. As odious as Britain’s elites are; boy, are they cleverer than ours. Take the impromptu interview, on June 28, which Richard Quest, CNN’s imported British broadcast journalist, conducted with Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party. Farage had emerged exhilarated from the coven that is the...

    DAD, WHAT's UNABHÄNGIGKEITSTAG? "Is that when the thirteen colonies broke away from England?" My ten year inquired out of nowhere at 6 AM German time this morning. "Yeah, why do you want to know, eat your breakfast," I mumbled, too sleepy to be very curious. "Because I am afraid my teacher will ask me, since I am wearing this T-shirt and I'm the only American in the class." With an effort, I adjusted my gaze upward to his white T-shirt. It was brand new. Prominent on his breast was an image of the flag and below that: OLD NAVY FREEDOM...

Speaking to SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon for the Breitbart News Daily Fourth of July Special, Mansour explained in dramatic detail the personalities and political tensions that led the Continental Congress to declare independence from the British crown.

    Here is the heart of Saul Alinsky's plan to convert our American Republic into a soulless Commune called Communism or Socialism ending private ownership of a home or business!!!! This in turn brings an end to self initiative to improve community conditions due to lack of self economic growth with it's rewards!! When the central government controls all elements of your life, there is no allowance left for free self expression!!! Right now the Republican Party is so completely at war internally that it may not recover in time to knock out Hillary. That would complete Alinsky's program. A real...

    After residents of the UK voted today to leave the European Union, the movement for an independent Texas may be gaining serious momentum, with thousands online calling for a “Texit.” The largest group agitating for secession is the Texas Nationalist Movement, which has been promoting its own version of Brexit, called Texit, over the past several weeks. The group has taken inspiration from the pro-exit campaign in Britain, noting that the two movements share many of the same principles. Daniel Miller, president of the TNM, told Australian website news.com.au, “The vast majority of the laws, rules and regulations that affect...

    Now another shot heard 'round the world has been fired, this time by the British. Hopefully, America and others will get wise and follow her lead “The party is over. Everybody out of the pool - at least for the moment.” Britain, by only a very small margin, elected to leave the European Union. This, most probably the Brit’s last stand for independence, is an object lesson that absolutely should not go unheeded by the United States that is aspiring, tooth and nail, to be the next Finland. It was Finland’s former prime minister, Alexander Stubb, who last night tweeted...

    Democrat Louisiana state representatives launched an attack against the phrase “all men are created equal” in the Declaration of Independence Wednesday in response to the state House’s consideration of an education bill. State Rep. Barbara Norton (D) led the charge against HB 1035, a measure that would require local school boards of education to have students in grades four to six recite a specified section of the Declaration of Independence after the current daily period of silent prayer or meditation and the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. The bill, introduced by state Rep. Valarie Hodges (R), would require students...

    Taiwan’s China-friendly Nationalist Party has elected its first female leader after ousting her as its presidential candidate ahead of January elections that were won by pro-independence rivals. The Kuomintang had ditched Hung Hsiu-chu as her abrasive style and strongly pro-China positions were seen as alienating voters. The veteran legislator and former teacher was elected as leader over three other candidates Saturday and likely faces a difficult time rebuilding the party after its January electoral defeat. […] Chinese President Xi Jinping congratulated Hung from Beijing, saying he hoped the two parties would continue to oppose “Taiwan independence,” according to the official...

    Scotland’s leader says she doesn’t want to use a possible British vote to leave the European Union as leverage to achieve independence. But First Minister Nicola Sturgeon concedes that Scots’ secessionist spirits would be inflamed if English voters forced them out of the EU. Sturgeon spoke Sunday on the second day of her Scottish National Party’s spring conference, which is focused on strengthening nationalist control of Scotland’s Parliament in a May 5 election. […] Sunday’s published poll data suggested that Scottish voters appear much more enthusiastic than their English neighbors about staying inside the 28-nation bloc, with 50 percent planning...

    When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived, and for the advancement of whose happiness it was instituted, and so far from being a guarantee for the enjoyment of those inestimable and inalienable rights, becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression. When the Federal Republican Constitution of their country, which they have sworn to support, no longer has a substantial existence, and the whole nature of their government has been forcibly changed, without their consent, from a restricted federative republic, composed...

Military experts said the drills were aimed at sending a "political warning" to Taiwan's president-elect Tsai Ing-wen, chairwoman of Democratic Progressive Party, that Beijing would never give up using "non-peaceful means" to solve...

    MADISON, Wis. - While the left and the right staked out their positions on the Badger State's condition, Gov. Scott Walker's 2016 edition of the State of the State address was replete with the kind of core conservative ideas that had gotten lost in the din of his failed presidential campaign. "For too long, government programs have entrapped individuals...into extended dependency," the Republican governor said Tuesday in laying out his executive blueprint, which promises to be somewhat muted by election-year inertia. "Our reforms help people get the training they need to get back up on their feet." While the diminishing...
