    Fortnight for Freedom: Please Spend Some Time Working and Praying to Protect Your Religious Liberty Msgr. Charles Pope • June 22, 2017 • There has been a steady erosion of religious liberty in the United States in recent years. It has been challenged through a broad range of incidents, requirements from the medical world, health insurance mandates, and court decisions. We often take our religious freedom for granted, but it is under substantive though sometimes subtle challenge. We are in the midst of a sea change; we are being told that religion has no place in the marketplace, in...

    Former President Barack Obama in Montreal this week warned the world against income inequality and the concentration of wealth, all while pulling down $7,700 per minute at his $400,000 speech. Obamas first post-presidency address on Canadian soil was loaded with anti-Trump, anti-capitalism and anti-American rhetoric. Big surprise there. Obama said that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful, NBC reported and noted that Obama is now striving to be an international community organizer. He said the U.S. and other nations showed there was a better way in creating an international order that was...

    If you approach the study of our Constitution with the mental image of building a house, its easier to comprehend and retain what you are learning. The original four short pages that make up the seven Articles of the Constitution provide the concrete foundation and the framework. The authors were literally called the framers of the Constitution. The Articles are short, to the point, and critically important in understanding the foundation of our republic. Patrick Henry said, The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the...

    any who would rewrite history, would have us to believe the women during the revolution were oppressed subservient wives of overbearing husbands who dictated policy in the home. Nothing could be further from the truth. The founding women of our nation carried themselves with dignity and strength; believing with their hearts and souls the value of Liberty was worthy of their families sacrifice. These were women of principle, of courage, and of great resolve, willing to sacrifice all so that their children could be free.

    A fiery Michelle Obama vigorously defended the healthy eating initiative that was her biggest legacy as First Lady on Friday, telling a public health summit in Washington D.C. that something was wrong with an administration that did not want to give consumers nutrition information or teach children to eat healthily. We gotta make sure we dont let anybody take us back, Obama said. This is where you really have to look at motives, you know. You have to stop and think, why dont you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you?

One of the newest citizens is a Baltimore Oriole who gave the city nine memorable years. he special ceremony, which happens twice a day in Baltimore, was a little more nerve-wracking than stepping onto the field at Camden Yards. Orioles Hall of Famer Melvin Mora has become a U.S. citizen after 17 years in the country. "I was trying not to cry," Mora said. "I said, 'What am I doing?' You know, I've been hitting with 40,000 people and now my hands are shaking so you know...

    Miracle? State House passed a bill saying liberties dont come from governments, but from Almighty God May 10, 2017 | Scott Morefield | Print Article From whence do our liberties derive? Are they from the whims of man, of whoever has the power to grant or deny them at any given moment in history, or are they from an almighty, unchangeable force? Its an important philosophical question, because if the answer is the latter, any attempts to deny humans their God-given liberties are by definition anti-God and worthy of opposition by decent-minded people.

    President Donald Trump said hed promote commonsense policies that would Make America Great Again and would stand up to politically correct bullying from the left.So why isnt he doing that in the case of religious freedom?Twice now, he has failed to stand up for commonsense policy on religious liberty when liberal opponents lashed out against it.Back in February, he caved to the protests of liberal special interest groups as he declined to issue an executive order on religious liberty that had been leaked to hostile press.And earlier today, he issued an executive order on free speech and religious liberty that...

    In another move to free up domestic energy supplies, President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday aimed at lifting the Obama administration’s offshore drilling restrictions.For decades, bad policies have blocked access to America’s abundance of domestic resources, yet America has still managed to be a global energy leader. Trump’s executive order, “Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy,” could unleash further success in the energy sector.The economic potential sitting just off America’s coasts is enormous. The Outer Continental Shelf is awash with natural resources, containing an estimated 86 billion barrels of oil and 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.Realizing...

  • Why people are rich and poor: Republicans and Democrats have very different views

    Pew Research Center ^ | May 2, 2017 | by SAMANTHA SMITH
    Beyond partisan differences over economic policies, there are stark divisions on a fundamental question: What makes someone rich or poor? Most Republicans link a persons financial standing to their own hard work or the lack of it. Most Democrats say that whether someone is rich or poor is more attributable to circumstances beyond their control. The public overall is about evenly divided over which has more to do with why a person is rich: 45% say it is because he or she worked harder than most people, while 43% say it is because they had more advantages in life...

    New York Times ^ | April 21, 2017 | David Brooks
    Between 1935 and 1975, Will and Ariel Durant published a series of volumes that together were known as The Story of Civilization. They basically told human history (mostly Western history) as an accumulation of great ideas and innovations, from the Egyptians, through Athens, Magna Carta, the Age of Faith, the Renaissance and the Declaration of the Rights of Man. The series was phenomenally successful, selling over two million copies. That series encapsulated the Western civilization narrative that people, at least in Europe and North America, used for most of the past few centuries to explain their place in the world...

    The meaning of words change over time, which presents problems to historians and patriots alike. Liberty, being so important to the American psyche, is one such word. With that in mind, hang on for a rocky read. Few words conjure more and varied impressions than the word, liberty. Long before the American Revolution, liberty was the means to overthrow a tyrant, or alternatively, of appointing a chieftain whom all were obliged to obey. In the 17th and 18th century, no other political ideal was invoked more often, but with less precision. As opposed to today, where many view liberty as...

    I thank God every day for President Trump and pray for his continuing success. Had Trump not entered the race, the GOPe would have delivered the nomination to Jeb Bush and then Her Royal Heinous Hillary would be sitting in the White House today. Those who think that doesn't make any difference whatsoever are perfectly free to post somewhere else. God bless President Trump. God bless America.

Quit screwing around with unwanted, unpopular, unsustainable, unconstitutional health care schemes. Push for and accept nothing less than a full repeal on Obamacare and then get to work enacting the rest of HIS MAGA agenda!! And...

    A buy-to-let tycoon facing a public backlash over his ban on "coloured" tenants has said: "I would do it again." Fergus Wilson has banned "coloured" people from renting his homes because he claims they leave them smelling of curry, costing him thousands of pounds after they leave. The Equality and Human Rights Commission has pledged to investigate the matter. Mr Wilson insisted he was "not racist" and said his move was an "economic decision". He said his stance was no different from his ban on letting his properties to smokers and dog owners. The 69-year-old said: "There has been much...
