    Happy Patriots' Day. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. ...   As we peer into society's future, we – you and I, and our government – must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for, for our own ease and convenience, the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without asking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to...

    Original title:The American Revolution began - Today in history On April 19,1775 the American Revolutionary War began with the battles of Lexington and Concord. At about 5 a.m., 700 British troops, on a mission to capture Patriot leaders and seize a Patriot arsenal, march into Lexington to find 77 armed minutemen under Captain John Parker waiting for them on the town's common green. British Major John Pitcairn ordered the outnumbered Patriots to disperse, and after a moment's hesitation the Americans began to drift off the green. Suddenly, the "shot heard around the world" was fired from an undetermined gun, and...

    ....I see only two paths for America today. First, some miracle will happen in which a couple hundred constitutionalists like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and Trey Gowdy will be elected to the House and Senate over the next few election cycles, and something resembling the Founders republic will be restored, but given the current climate of relentless progressivism, massive bureaucracy, government dependence, and voter ignorance, that seems like a very remote possibility. The second path is that complacency, ignorance, and indifference will allow more progressives and communists to be elected, the federal government will continue to grow and amass...

    I wish I knew what was in the water that the Republican leadership is drinking so we can administer a counteragent. Democrats are floundering as more and more people start realizing the true cost of ObamaCare, not to mention the out of control spending of Washington. Across the county, progressive liberal programs are being attacked and rolled back, such as Common Core. Despite the mainstream media constantly shielding Obama and actively participating in his lies, a majority of Americans believe that he lies on important issues. With all these things lining up in the Republicans' favor, you would think they...

    As a rule I abhor the modern English language practice of using nouns as verbs. However, given that it is Holy Week and given that it is the perfect allusion, allow me to paraphrase Daniel Henninger: Big Guy just Pontius Pilated the Ukraine. It is an accurate, if awkward, construction. "The White House reiterated that no lethal assistance was planned" to help Ukraine defend itself. The U.S., however, did send ready-to-eat meals. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney's comments were antiseptic: "The Ukrainian government has a responsibility to provide law and order." It is fitting that churchgoers the world over...

    Russian Nationalism Right After the fall of the Soviet Empire the Russian people felt a little humiliated. They felt like they were living in a beaten nation. Vladimir Putin has slowly been building a sense of nationalism that has resonated with the Russian people. He has put in place policies that have rejected the Wests programs of tolerance and multiculturalism which were working to destroy Russian identity and culture. It came as a shock to the Gay community that, during their protests, the Russian people didnt care about them one bit. Inside Russia Putin is seen as a hero for...

  • Is the goal of our government a post industrial America

    With the exception of the IRS I think we have gotten the unwanted attention of just about every federal, state and local agency that exists. The gauntlet of regulations, fees and penalties have become so daunting that our management team just withdrew our permit application and decided not to pursue the expansion in our county or even state. The deck is so stacked against business today it is necessary to ask oneself if the goal of our government is to create a post industrial society out of America

    We learned that the government will do anything to private citizens in order to grab land and private property either under the guise of protecting an endangered desert tortoise that is actually overpopulated, or getting rid of feral and destructive trespassing cattle grazing the land for generations, cattle that are in the way of developing a $5 billion Chinese solar panel plant (ENN), and the exploitation of rare earth elements in the larger adjacent area. Mr. Bundy was too stubborn, the last rancher standing in Clarke County, Nevada, clinging to his inconvenient feral cattle, his agreement with the State of...

    All my life, I've heard that liberals are against authority and that they love nothing more than sticking it to the man. Such talk is usually accompanied by how the hippies changed the world by smoking pot and protesting the Vietnam war and other such nonsense. The reality, though, is far different from the narrative that they continually push through their control of popular culture and education. The liberal went from hating the man to becoming the man. They worship at the shrine of big government, and they relish in the displays of overt power that they once condemned. Thus...

The video which follows shows just how close this fraudulent tale of the habitat of desert tortoises came to being a disaster. Whether Harry Reid and his sniveling son were involved in engineering the week-long, federal intimidation of Cliven Bundy and...

    Once upon a time there were more than fifty cattle ranches operating in the area of Southern Nevada where Cliven Bundy, with the help of numerous armed patriots from all over, is making his stand against the abusive, bankrupting tactics of the bullying federal government. Now, there is only one rancher and his family left. After several generations of his ancestors having use of the land in question, Bundy is literally the last man standing in what is, evidently, a long-range vendetta against ranchers by land-grabbing federal bureaucrats who, also literally, have gone power madthat is, mad for solar power...

    04/17/2014 10:07:33 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 53 replies
    The cattle-ranch protest in Nevada was an armed insurrection by the Tea Party. One thousand Tea Party, so-called patriots, came to Bunkerville, NV, brandished weapons and the government backed down. Other mass protests in America have either ended in arrests or violent clashes between authorities and protesters. There is an obvious double standard here because the government relented and turned away. Why did the government do this? The main difference between many other mass protests and the cattle-ranch protest is that the cattle-ranch protesters were armed with handguns and assault rifles. Is American in such a state where the new...

Its birth was a long and desperate struggle for independence against the strongest and most advanced military in the world. In the War of 1812 its capital was burned to the ground. It suffered the growing pains of expansionism against hostile natives as well as unfriendly claims and competition by Spain, France, Great Britain, and Mexico. It suffered through a tragic and horribly bloody civil war that helped to define the idea of federalism at the...

    The murders at Fort Hood have resulted in renewed calls to lift Bill Clintons ban on personally owned firearms on military bases. This latest attack was the third on a military installation in the past five years, so common sense, no, common DECENCY dictates that a change in policy is necessary. Those who essentially hate the military and think the worst of its members have had their way long enough. Their because we say so policy has never made sense.

    In the last presidential election, Mitt Romney was savaged by the media and the cultural elites for pointing out that 47 percent of voters will vote for Obama as they're getting subsidies from the federal, state, or local governments.

    As if the Obama administrations purchase of more than 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and nearly 3,000 urban tanks, along with their unprecedented (and highly illegal) domestic spying program was not enough to convince you that the federal government is about to suspend the Constitution once and for all, the man who once vowed to run the most transparent administration in history has just rather inexplicably, ordered the U.S. Army to seize every Apache attack helicopter currently in use by the National Guard. In all, the Defense Department will confiscate 192 Apaches from National Guard units around the country and...
