  • Do You Adhere to the Language of Liberty or the Language of Servitude?

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/25/15 | Karen Lees
    The Language of Liberty celebrates the freedom of the individual. The language of Servitude exalts the tyranny of the State. The statements which follow reveal the mighty difference between those who fear the power of freedom and those who relish it. In their own words are revealed the true intentions–in both the past and the present– of those who speak the language of Servitude: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the...

    It is amazing how many different ways the same thing can be said, creating totally different impressions. For example, when President Barack Obama says that defeating ISIS is going to take a long time, how is that different from saying that he is going to do very little, very slowly? It is saying the same thing in different words. Defenders of the administration's policies may cite how many aerial sorties have been flown by American planes against ISIS. There have been thousands of these sorties, which sounds very impressive. But what is less impressive -- and more indicative -- is...

    In 2014, Sister Hatune Dogan had been rescuing Christian and Yazidi girls from ISIS captivity for eight months, but she was desperate. If only the world could see the harm being done, understand that rescues were possible, people would open their hearts and their wallets, [so she] found an independent British filmmaker, Edward Watts.. In an email dated February 6, 2015, Watts’s producer, Rosie Garthwaite, wrote: "Hatune you will be the lead story in a documentary about women living under IS.” Watts spent nine days in Germany, Turkey, and Iraq with Sister Hatune.

No word yet on the Jesuit university recanting all the honors it has bestowed on pro-abortion politicians. Now, according to the Washington Post, the Jesuits owned slaves and sold them to pay off debt? Wow. I'd never heard that. That's a pretty large and glaring gap in Matt's historical knowledge right there. Kind of embarrassing, huh? So that's clearly a bad thing the Jesuits did.

    Election Day 2016 will produce a shattering crash larger than anything the pundits anticipate because the revolutionary economic and social changes occurring in the United States have now pushed both the burgeoning new majority and the conservative Republicans’ counterrevolution beyond their tipping points. The United States is being transformed by revolutions remaking the country at an accelerating and surprising pace. Witness the revolutions in technology, the Internet, big data and energy, though just as important are the tremendous changes taking place in immigration, racial and ethnic diversity, the family, religious observance and gender roles.

    Rubbing Resentments Raw is a main theme of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s analysis of the Alinsky model of community organizing and political activism to gain power by conflict over the establishment. Her senior dissertation on “There is Only the Fight” not only reveals the continuing, enormous effect of Saul Alinsky on Hillary Rodham today, but also shows the immersion in his philosophy that directs her drive to become America’s first woman president. She says of her role model: “Saul Alinsky is more than a man who has created a particular approach to community organizing; he is the articulate proponent of what...

    --SNIP-- Her story highlights the brutal realities of human trafficking in Mexico and the United States, an underworld that has destroyed the lives of tens of thousands of Mexican girls like Karla. Human trafficking has become a trade so lucrative and prevalent, that it knows no borders and links towns in central Mexico with cities like Atlanta and New York. U.S. and Mexican officials both point to a town in central Mexico that for years has been a major source of human trafficking rings and a place where victims are taken before being eventually forced into prostitution.

    ... Although Trump glibly describes "Operation Wetback" as moving undocumented immigrants "waaay south," this program was at best inhumane and at worst horrific. Back then, the government rounded up suspected undocumented immigrants and sent them deep into the Mexican interior, where they were abandoned with next to nothing. The transports across the border were reportedly "indescribable scenes of human misery and tragedy." In one instance, 88 deportees died from heat stroke in the desert. Other deportees were sent to the Mexican Gulf Coast by ship, in vessels described by historians as an "eighteenth century slave ship" or "penal hell ship."...

    In Mauritania, a vast, desert country straddling sub-Saharan Africa and the continents Arab north, anywhere from 4 to 20 percent of the population are slaves. There are few statistics, so the exact figures are unclear, but even the lowest estimate makes Mauritania the country with the highest percentage of slaves in the world. While slaves here arent physically chained, many remain imprisoned by deep psychological bonds, as well as crippling poverty. Some consider it a sacred duty to serve their masters, tending to the livestock or doing the housework with no pay. Others, like Essatim, grow up knowing nothing else....

    The Civil War began over a simple question: Did the Constitution of the United States recognize slavery property in humans in national law? Southern slaveholders, inspired by Senator John C. Calhoun of South Carolina, charged that it did and that the Constitution was proslavery; Northern Republicans, led by Abraham Lincoln, and joined by abolitionists including Frederick Douglass, resolutely denied it. After Lincolns election to the presidency, 11 Southern states seceded to protect what the South Carolina secessionists called their constitutional right of property in slaves. The war settled this central question on the side of Lincoln and Douglass....

    Hundreds of thousands of white Europeans were captured by Barbary MUSLIM pirates and sold as slaves in North Africa and the Ottoman Empire between the 16th and 19th centuries. Tens of thousands of Black African slaves are still owned today by Arab Muslims. These slave raids were conducted largely by Arab and Berber Muslim rather than Ottoman Turkish Muslims. However, during the height of the Barbary slave trade, the Barbary states were subject to Ottoman Muslim jurisdiction and ruled by Ottoman pashas. Furthermore, many slaves captured by the Barbary corsairs were sold eastward into Ottoman territories before, during, and after...

But one of the sex slaves was a fresh-faced blond American, a 25-year-old aid worker who was captured in Syria in August 2013.

Those who are deemed the best minds of this generation devote their energies to convincing people that the threat is not as large as it is, or that it can be neutralized by adjustments to U.S. foreign policy (particularly the abandonment of Israel), or that the West is really just as bad, so we are hypocrites for opposing the jihad....

His work began in earnest in 1787 when he first came into contact with abolitionists such as Thomas Clarkson, Hannah More and Charles Middleton. These activists found a kindred spirit in Wilberforce, whose conversion to the Christian faith had given birth to an abiding concern for social reform—so much so, in fact, that he wrote in his diary, “God Almighty has set before me two great objects, the suppression of the slave trade and the reformation of manners.”The dark and dehumanizing practice of slavery weighed heavy on him.

After the Civil War, the 13th Amendment was adopted Dec. 6, 1865, abolishing slavery in America. Once Southern Democrats were forced to free their slaves, they attempted to effectively re-enslave them by passing Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws which...

    Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson are history in Connecticut. Under pressure from the NAACP, the state Democratic Party will scrub the names of the two presidents from its annual fundraising dinner because of their ties to slavery. Party leaders voted unanimously Wednesday night in Hartford to rename the Jefferson Jackson Bailey dinner in the aftermath of last months fatal shooting of nine worshipers at the historic black church in Charleston, S.C. The decision is believed to be unprecedented and could prompt Democrats in other states with similarly-named events to follow suit. I see it as the right thing to do,...

    We call the war of 1861 the Civil War. But is that right? A civil war is a struggle between two or more entities trying to take over the central government. Confederate President Jefferson Davis no more sought to take over Washington, D.C., than George Washington sought to take over London in 1776. Both wars, those of 1776 and 1861, were wars of independence. Such a recognition does not require one to sanction the horrors of slavery. We might ask, How much of the war was about slavery? Was President Abraham Lincoln really for outlawing slavery? Let's look at his...

    Stories about Black and Native American connections are rarely told within the narrow historical context shared in classrooms, history books and around family tables, but there are some details that reveal a more complete story of enslavement in the Americas. In the 1830s, the enslavement of Blacks was established in the Indian Territory, the region that would become Oklahoma. By the late 19th century, when over half a million Africans were enslaved in the South, the southern Native American societies of that region had come to include both enslaved Blacks and small numbers of free Black people. Though the harsh...

    Satan cannot stand against Satan. If he does, his own house falls. Every Sunday school child learns this simple lesson, but liberals' rank ignorance of this fact could present the greatest hope of our time. "How?" you ask. Let me explain. Just yesterday, the news was all abuzz with a not-so-shocking undercover video of Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services,Dr. Deborah Nucatola placidly discussing how helpful it is when those who need body parts of dead babies let them know in advance so they can better serve up those "needs." Here's the video: I say it's not-so-shocking because what...

    In 2015, slavery is no longer freedom, but it certainly is tolerance. Congressman Louie Gohmert read a portion of my article "Pull Down the Slaver Flags of Islam" on the floor of Congress which addresses the hypocrisy of censoring the Dukes of Hazzard while opening the doors to Islamic racism and other forms of supremacist bigotry and nostalgia for slave-owning cultures. When Obama condemned Christianity for the Crusades, only a thousand years too late, in attendance was the Foreign Minister of Sudan; a country that practices slavery and genocide. Obama could have taken time out from his rigorous denunciation of...

    While radical leftists dust off their 60s and 70s Marxist yearbooks, dawn their holy Che Guevara t-shirts, wave the black flag of the ISIS JV team, desecrate century-old memorials with Black Lives Matter, dig up confederate soldiers in the name of progress and rewrite their politically incorrect history to remove the last traces of common sense from the American frontier, perhaps the time has come to ban the most pervasive and offensive embodiment of racism in America: the Democratic Party. Not only did Democrats constitute the beating heart and unrelenting face of human trafficking in America streamlining commercial operations...

    In 1854, around one single issueopposition to slaverythe Republican Party was formed. As historian David Barton notes, The Republican agenda was clear, for every platform since its inception had boldly denounced slavery. In fact, when the U. S. Supreme Court delivered the 1857 Dred Scott ruling protecting slavery and declaring that Congress could not prohibit it even in federal territories, the Republican platform strongly condemned that ruling and reaffirmed the right of Congress to ban slavery in the territories. But setting forth an opposite view, the Democrat platform praised the Dred Scott ruling, and the continuation of slavery, and also...
