    GRAND FORKS — Grand Forks police and the FBI on Thursday visited the home of Jodi Carlson, a leading opponent of a new corn mill to be owned by the China-based Fufeng Group, following up on a social media post quoting the Declaration of Independence that mentioned the overthrow of the government. The authorities ultimately found no cause for concern, a police report states. The incident has provoked an angry response from opponents of the corn mill project, many of whom are part of the “Concerned Citizens of Fufeng Project in Grand Forks” group where the activity took place. “This...

    American Minute ^ | July 4, 2022 | Bill Federer
    Both served in the Continental Congress. Both signed the Declaration of Independence. Both served as U.S. Ministers in France. Both were U.S. Presidents, one elected the 2nd President and the other the 3rd. Download as PDF ... Once political enemies, they became close friends in later life. An awe swept America when they both died on the same day, JULY 4, 1826, exactly 50 years since they approved the Declaration of Independence. Their names were John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson's handwritten Declaration of Independence used the wording "inalienable rights" as seen in the copies at the American Philosophical...

    Independence Day is celebrated in the United States on July 4, and features parades, ceremonies commemorating the historic event, fireworks, barbecues and the occasional retail store sale. At the center of the observance is the Declaration of Independence, an influential political document that 56 members of the Continental Congress signed in 1776. From the 18th century to the present day, the Declaration of Independence has garnered a lot of attention, as well as a few misconceptions and myths about its origins. Here are five interesting facts about the Declaration of Independence. They include how it originally condemned slavery, how the...

    Independence Day makes Progressives squirm. They despise the principles of the American Revolution. If they could, their scotus judges would gut the Declaration as thoroughly as they have the Constitution. To them, our Noble Declaration, this expression of God-given reason subverts social justice; they are right. Since the Declaration is indeed hostile to their moral relativism, the Left has long attempted to minimize our founding to a fuzzy faith in the people. The “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” and “all men are created equal,” translates in their Marxist minds as widespread democracy accompanied with equal...

    From a dissident perspective, watching the fights within what they still insist on calling the conservative movement is a lot like watching a bum fight. The two journeymen fighters are paired up to see who will get to be the champ’s next victim. The fight may be entertaining, as long as you do not think too much about the fact that neither guy has a future beyond being a punching bag for the elite fighters. These disputes are not without value. Granted, what comes from them will never be a genuine alternative to the progressive orthodoxy, but it offers some...

    National Post [Canada] ^ | Nov. 20, 2021 | Bruce Pardy
    Late last week, three colleagues and I launched the Free North Declaration , a call to defend civil liberties in this country, which lawyers and members of the public are invited to endorse. So far more than 6,000 have done so, including over 100 lawyers. The declaration outlines the ways in which legal authorities — legislatures, governments, public health officials, professional regulators, administrative bodies and public institutions — have restricted Canadians’ liberties during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have done so shrewdly, to attempt to remain inside the strict letter of the law and to avoid triggering protections in the Charter...

    The abject stupidity of the triggered left knows no bounds. According to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), the National Archives in Washington, DC has added a disclaimer to their website saying that some of our historical documents, including the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution may contain “harmful content.” Boebert tweeted: “The National Archives have now put a disclaimer on their website that our historical documents may include Harmful Content. They even slapped this warning on the Constitution. We tried to tell you the Left wanted to get rid of it!” Lest you think we are making this up,...

    FIRST ON FOX: Members of the National Archives' task force on racism have recommended removing the "charters of freedom" description for America’s founding documents, such as the Constitution, arguing that it did not initially grant freedom for all individuals. Approximately 800 National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) employees from across the country attended a town hall meeting of the Archives’ Task Force on Racism on May 11, according to FOIA documents obtained by America Rising and shared with Fox News. During the presentation, a museum subgroup recommended that NARA "retire" the term "charters of freedom" as descriptors for the U.S....

    The United States and Germany have signed the Washington Declaration on common principles as a result of meeting. Its text is published on the White House website. According to the Declaration, Washington and Berlin are committed to protecting the 'open world'.

    “The simplest definition of mental illness (and insanity) is the inability to recognize and comply with reality.” (My college statistics instructor who was a professor of psychology) “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom” – Psalm 111:10 I often reflect on the nature of culture and nationhood, never more contemplatively than on the Fourth of July when I re-read and consider the observations within the Declaration of Independence. In so doing I recognize that, according to my statistics instructor, we are living in an Age of Insanity. As our nation is seemingly rife with incurious, gullible...

    Taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR) reluctantly repeated its tradition of staff reading the Declaration of Independence, this year framing its report to point out the “flaws” and racist elements of one of the most cherished U.S. documents. The left-wing media outlet said it started the tradition as “a way of marking Independence Day”: NPR included remarks from author David Treuer, who is Ojibwe from Leech Lake Reservation. “But a deeper look at history also shows that one of the reasons why the colonists wanted to rise up against the British — and wage the Revolutionary War — was over the...

    When I was a little girl, my mother told me, "Always be grateful you're an American. There's no greater blessing." Mom was right and no one expressed this more beautifully than pioneer Laura Ingalls Wilder in "Little Town on the Prairie" when she described DeSmet's 1882 Independence Day Celebration: Beside the flagpole a man rose up tall above the crowd. He was standing on something. The sound of talking died down, and he could be heard speaking. “Well, boys,” he said, “I’m not much good at public speaking, but today’s the glorious Fourth. This is the day and date when...

    Leftist citizens of the world are uncomfortable at the sight of unabashed and self-confident patriots celebrating the founding of a nation dedicated to undeniable truths. Tough. Let the micro-aggressions roll as we stand athwart the progressive junking of all that is good and decent. On our nation’s 150th anniversary in 1926, Republican president Calvin Coolidge gave a speech in which he responded to the progressive wave that was muddying the minds of the nation. Only thirteen years after the passage of the destructive 16th and 17th Amendments, Coolidge deftly reminded Americans not to discard principles that had served the nation...
