    It’s always appropriate to show honor and appreciation to members of the military, but I offer this reminder to my readers: we’re not celebrating Veteran’s Day, we’re celebrating Memorial Day. This is the day we remember the high cost of freedom.

    The Marxists in NY, DC, and GA can go after Trump all they want, but what they’re really doing is making the former president a martyr for liberty. Watch as Mark unravels the left’s legal morass on Hannity.
  • Deliberately Engineered Confusion: The Hallmark of the Greatest Biopsychosocial Operation in History

    The iron fist of a coordinated program of control has been revealed and the fingers of this fist have imprinted themselves on every aspect of our lives. The economic impact has been enormous, resulting in an impoverishment of underlings while overlords have been majestically enriched. The ‘normality’ that, after three years, seems now to be reestablishing itself, is tenuous, for we have all seen how swiftly and fiercely the fist may come down, perhaps at the drop of another bat and the emergence of yet another infectious threat. Or perhaps the ever-looming dangers of climate change, another biopsychosocial operation, may...
  • I’m gay, I support gay marriage, and I don’t think the ‘gay rights’ side should win in this Supreme Court case: That’s what living in a pluralist and free society requires.

    I’m unabashedly gay, and I certainly support gay marriage. But I nonetheless side with the Christian wedding designer who’s before the Supreme Court right now because she refuses to design a same-sex wedding website. I’m going to explain why, but first, here are the facts.What’s This Case All About?On Monday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case called 303 Creative LLC v Elenis. The case centers around Lorie Smith, a Christian who owns a website design business. She wants to expand her business and start designing custom wedding websites, but due to her religious beliefs, is unwilling to...
  • Return of the Great MAGA King

    American Thinker ^ | 23 Nov, 2022 | J.B. Shurk
    MAGA is a walking, talking anthem for restrained government, empowered citizens, free will, and personal liberty. The "Great MAGA King" — that's what Joe Biden and others have called Donald Trump, and it's hard not to embrace the frivolity of the moniker, even though that is not what Dementia Joe's handlers had in mind. SNIP When I enthusiastically endorse Decrepit Joe's title for Donald Trump, I do so not in any misguided belief that only Donald Trump can or should hold the Office of the Presidency. I do not believe that America should be a country for rulers, subjects, or...

    Gab is an amazing social media forum. They don't moderate users, well except for porn and direct threats of violence. It also has more features than Truth Social, Twitter, and even Facebook. I even created a group (just now) and made it private called "Freerepublic". I'm hoping more users go there to experience what freedom on the Internet is like. Also here's a tip: You can create your own filters to block things you don't want to see. Like N-word, Hitler, Obama, etc...
  • Federal Court Nixes Vaccine Mandate, Citing Religious Liberty

    Breitbart ^ | 08/19/22 | Katherine Hamilton
    A federal court denied a petition for rehearing in a case surrounding United Airlines’ vaccine mandate — one judge accusing the company of “coerc[ing] its employees into violating their religious beliefs.” Judges for the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, widely considered the most conservative federal court, voted 13-4 on Thursday to deny a rehearing. The court also denied United Airlines’ request to vacate a panel opinion from February, which held that the mandate inflicted irreparable harm and remanded the case to district court. Trump-appointed Judge James Ho penned a concurring opinion, admonishing the airline for creating...

    NAtional Post ^ | Aug 05, 2022 | National Post View staff
    The likely Conservative leadership winner should ignore pleas to move to the centre Pierre Poilievre’s complete dominance of the Conservative party leadership race is undeniable no matter who your favoured candidate is. Should he win, as seems all but inevitable, Poilievre should ignore the advice of critics and pundits on the left, as well as some within his party, who argue he needs to moderate his message and policies. The Conservatives have tried that for the last two elections and it is a losing strategy. Instead, the party should embrace the chance to bring forth an agenda built around Poilievre’s...

    This is one of the letters in the article: The ConstitutionBy Yeonmi Park I read the Constitution for the first time when I finally made it from North Korea to South Korea. I was studying English, and collecting letters of recommendation in the hopes that I would win a visa and be able to travel across the ocean to America. Even with my broken English, I teared up reading the sentences. I didn’t know then what the word dignity meant, but that was what I felt for the first time in my life. My mother and I didn't risk our...
  • Voting For Libertarians In The Australian Police State (A personal post)

    05/19/2022 7:35:11 PM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 1 replies
    I hate and renounce the corrupt, inhumane governments of the country of my birth, Australia. Ron DeSantis was right to warn Americans about Australia last fall and Americans have subsequently shown very good judgement in lifting him to number three in the opinion polls for the American presidential election in 2024. There are a few wonderful libertarians in Australia who give me hope. There is Krystle Mitchell who served with Victoria Police for 16 years but has resigned to warn that the current socialist left lead government of Victoria has "far more control over Victoria Police than the community should...

    Most of us that studied (actual) history in high school knows the story of how our Constitutional Republic came to be. According to history, the Colonists in Boston were tired of paying exorbitant taxes to King George for basic things such as tea and other necessities. They were tired of living under the thumb of the monarchy with hardly (if any at all) representation, and simply put, it was tough times back in 1775 in New England. Today, he would be called a “right-wing loon.” Today, he would be labeled as an insurrectionist, purveyor of tin-foil-hat messages, and likely be...

    You might be, as I am, alarmed about the future of liberty. How deep are the roots of liberty when so many submit to authoritarian measures in response to COVID, and approve the use of coercion against those less eager to comply? Unable to visualize alternatives, public acceptance of top-down coercive solutions to COVID demonstrates a willingness to sacrifice liberty for the promise of safety. To restore liberty, our understanding of liberty needs to deepen. The prolific author and educator Leonard Read is most famous for his timeless essay “I, Pencil.” In one of his earlier works, Students of Liberty,...

    What are “Positive Rights”? There is much talk regarding “rights” and how they relate to freedom and liberty. If you’re wondering, “what are positive rights,” and why should I care? We’ll explain what they are and some of the fundamental issues that many people have with this ideology. Positive Rights Definition A positive right is one that requires others (namely the government) to provide you with either a good or service. They do so by taking away another individuals’ rights. Positive right issues start to arise when these infringe on the fundamental human rights of others by requiring them to...

    TONACATEPEQUE, El Salvador — It has been four weeks since the shoemaker vanished from his hometown, hauled away in handcuffs by Salvadoran police.The family of the man, Heber Peña, 29, has gathered business receipts and signatures from clients to prove he makes his money honestly. They fear he is now stuck in an overcrowded prison, accused of being a gang member. Even so, the cobbler’s family still sees the benefits of the police crackdown that led to his arrest — and admires the leader behind it. “Apart from this,” said Caleb Peña, Heber’s brother, “everything the president has done is...

    Sometimes a mask is so completely torn away that only the willfully and ideologically blind or the stupid cannot see what the real game is. Frank Bruni of the New York Times kindly provided those who desire to see with such an opportunity with his own Two Minutes Hate against Florida's protection of 5- to 9-year-olds from groomers. The gist and heart of Bruni's tirade is that in this latest incarnation of the culture war, too much emphasis has been put on "parental rights." Public schools, he emphasizes, don't exist "as some bespoke service attending to the material wants and...

    Fox News host Mark Levin explained what "America first" means to him, Sunday, by debunking the notion that our founders were "nationalists." The "Life, Liberty & Levin" host said how the word "nationalist" cannot be found in our founding documents because the founders and framers "believed in Americanism," guided by "natural law and rights," not nationalism" or "populism." "The Tenth Amendment rejects nationalism. It’s federalism. Talks about state sovereignty. Why do we have a Ninth Amendment? Have you read that one lately? It talks about individual liberty, it is in my view, a reflection of the Declaration. They put it...

    A federal judge in Cincinnati granted a temporary order this week blocking Air Force action against 18 service members including 11 who currently or recently served at Wright-Patterson in Dayton who are fighting the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. A federal judge in Cincinnati is stopping Air Force action against 18 servicemembers fighting the COVID-19 vaccine including 11 who currently or recently served at Wright-Patterson in Dayton. The servicemembers sued earlier this year over the denial of religious accommodations for refusing shots. The First Amendment and Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) does, in fact, apply to the military, contrary to...

    I do not write this article to throw stones. I write it to save lives. That’s why I make this heartfelt (and anguished) plea: If you are a pastor or ministry leader and you believe that, according to the Bible, you have the liberty to drink alcohol (without drunkenness), please don’t turn that liberty into a public boast, as in, “Look at how free I am!” You can enjoy that freedom before God, with moderation and discipline. But please don’t bash those who practice total abstinence. And please don’t use your liberty as a club against legalism. Or as a...
