The Roots of the First American Revolution

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!” ~ Samuel Adams (1776)

gadsden_flagEach year on April 19th, we honor the anniversary of Patriots’ Day and the legacy of Liberty launched that day, which is our inspiration to this day. In doing so, we mark the opening salvo of the first American Revolution in 1775, and the first step toward the establishment of an eternal declaration of human Liberty, subordinating the rule of men to Creator-inspired Rule of Law.

No. It’s an inverted totalitarian state. Continue reading

Once Upon A Time …

Faust Milano, 1863How is it possible for a great American political party to be so out of touch with its constituents, so completely tone deaf to their wants and desires, so separated from the reality of the world around them?

With citizens looped together into one vast globe encircling network of information and communication, how is it possible for the GOP to be so ill informed?

The Republicans are, today, set to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory — again. Continue reading

Social Security Halts Controversial Tax Program

  • Saw thousands of peoples’ refunds seized to recoup overpayments from more than a decade ago
"Oh WE of course knew nothing about it. We didn't know what we signed onto with that last Bill that no one could read until we passed it. But we are so grateful that we could come clean for these poor people who were dealth with so unfairly."

“Oh WE of course knew nothing about it. We didn’t know what we signed onto with that last Bill that no one could read until we passed it. But we are so grateful that we could come clean for these poor people who were dealt with so unfairly.” (SHEESH – Harry looks P.O.’d)

The Social Security Administration is suspending a program in which thousands of people were having their tax refunds seized to recoup overpayments that happened more than a decade ago. Continue reading

Cliven Bundy’s Cattle Battle: Harry Reid, China and Agenda 21

Land Management: A Chinese solar farm that fries birds is OK, as is redrawing tortoise habitat boundaries to benefit political donors. But an American rancher grazing his cattle brings feds with sniper rifles.

It appears Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has, at least temporarily, won his “range war” with the paramilitary wing of the Bureau of Land Management. Fearing another Waco, BLM has announced it will no longer enforce a court order and stop stealing Bundy’s cows, called “trespass cattle” by the feds, accused of grazing free on part of the 84% of Nevada that is federal property.

If the forces deployed in and around the Nevadan’s ranch had been deployed to Benghazi, it’s likely Glen Doherty, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Ambassador Christopher Stevens would be alive today. If illegal aliens were grazing on the disputed property, there would not have been federal snipers perched nearby with American citizens in their sights. Continue reading

‘Liberalism Has A Kind Of Tourette’s Syndrome These Days’

"FUOCCKKKKKK!"

“FUOCCKKKKKK!”

A meme-worthy moment from George Will yesterday on Fox News Sunday, as spotted by Jeffrey Meyer of Newsbusters:

CHRIS WALLACE: We asked you for questions from the panel, for the panel, rather. And we got this on Twitter from Michael Daigeaun. Why is it that if you oppose their position and you’re white, you’re branded a racist? Both Attorney General Holder and POTUS race bait. George is that what’s going on here? Continue reading

Sebelius II: Burwell’s Confirmation Hearings to Run Obamacare Just Got a Little More Difficult

Love the clothes - straight off the rack at K-Mart?

Love the clothes – straight off the rack at K-Mart?

Sylvia Burwell is President Obama’s pick to replace Kathleen Sebelius atop the Department of Health and Human Services, despite her having no experience in the healthcare industry. This administration’s motto seems to be “no experience required.” Burwell’s main claims to fame up to now aren’t terribly impressive. She ran the Gates Foundation, which never had any money troubles, and she ran the Walmart Foundation, which also never had any money troubles. Foundations tend to be easier to run when they’re flush with cash and can do whatever they want.

She has also headed the Office of Management and Budget, at a time when the US government is spending money at insane rates. OMB doesn’t just work on budgets, though, according to Marc Thiessen. Continue reading

Is Bundy Ranch Standoff a Warm-up?

lexington_concord-4.19.75The rancher-federal agent standoff that has been threatening to boil over in Clark County, Nevada, this week has transformed almost overnight from a ludicrous overreach by a government bureaucracy hiding behind an endangered tortoise to the probable result of a multibillion-dollar solar power project traceable to none other than Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid. Continue reading

Newby: Off the Top of My Head

Newby_foOn the last page of the front section of today’s Sunday Newspaper (April 6, 2014) is a small article which might be one of the significant indicators of the early steps to the third world war. It will probably be overlooked by a majority of readers. U.S. Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel announced that he will convey to Japanese leaders that the U.S. is strongly committed to protecting their country’s security. The recent take over of Crimea by Russia has much of the world looking over their shoulder and wondering where the next shoe will drop.

Japan is sitting right in the middle of the tinderbox of the Far East. China is growing more militant daily over the island of Taiwan sitting off shore, free and independent. The Democratic party of the Free Republic of China would not have existed if not for the protection of the United States at the end of World War II. The United States protected and guarded Taiwan’s existence until it became a viable free country. By the same token then in a diplomatic move they gave the United Nations seat of Taiwan to Communist China. Continue reading

Huntwork: Don’t Ban Bossy, Ban Beyonce

Beyonce 10Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In and Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, has a line in her book that states “I want every little girl who’s told she’s bossy to be told instead that she has leadership skills.” As you have probably heard by now, her Lean In organization and the Girl Scouts of America have teamed up with various celebrities and some other well-known female figures to urge us to ban the use of the word bossy. As part of their “public service” campaign they have released a short ad featuring these women lecturing us about how they were called bossy and other names as children and therefore we should “ban bossy.” The “Ban Bossy – I’m Not Bossy. I’m the Boss” video has gone viral while stirring up some controversy along the way. It has now been viewed over 2,250,000 times on Youtube. (See VIDEO Inside) Continue reading

Beaman: Progressivism & Communism

progress_communA progressive talk show host this past week did a partial review of Karl Marx’s ten recommendations to establish communist society. He discussed the abolition of rights of inheritance, not completely dismissing it. He also discussed the progressive income tax which he endorsed; of course no self-respecting progressive would ever disagree with that. It is a cornerstone of progressivism. The analog would be that when you go to the grocer’s. The check out clerk would ask for your income statement before determining the charges.

He did admit that Marx wanted to destroy all rights of property; mighty charitable of him. He also stated that Marx, toward the end of his life, said he was not a Marxist, a statement which is pretty much acknowledged but which proves what I’ve been saying for years. Continue reading

Ross: Weary To The Bone

ross_unmaskedOn Saturday December 22, 1787, The Independent Journal in New York published an article written by Alexander Hamilton under the pseudonym of Publius. This would be the twenty-sixth out of eighty five such articles which we now know as the Federalist Papers. Hamilton begins his article by saying, “It was a thing hardly to be expected that in a popular revolution the minds of men should stop at that happy mean which marks the salutary boundary between POWER and PRIVILEGE, and combines the energy of government with the security of private rights. A failure in this delicate and important point is the great source of the inconveniences we experience, and if we are not cautious to avoid a repetition of the error, in our future attempts to rectify and ameliorate our system, we may travel from one chimerical project to another; we may try change after change; but we shall never be likely to make any material change for the better.”

Why do I begin my article with a quote from an article written over 200 years ago? Well it is because a good many people in this country realize that there is something wrong, that things aren’t going the way they should be, but they don’t know what exactly is to blame. Every two years we go to the polls and cast our votes for people to represent us in government, with every fourth year we go to vote for who will be our next president. We do so, then sit back hoping that these newly elected representatives will fix whatever it is that is wrong with this country. The problem is that they are what’s wrong with this country.

The War Within the GOP

Tea Party MovementI started out a Democrat because my parents were Democrats. When I was old enough to conclude that the Democratic Party was so socialist I could not remain one, I became a Republican. In her nineties, even my Mother registered as a Republican. Times change and people change. Now I am considering registering as an independent. I am waiting for the outcome of the November midterm elections. Continue reading

What’s next? Read historical text in public and face contempt charges?

us-constitutionA court considering contempt of court charges against a Maryland county commissioner shows a disturbing trend, according to a constitutional law expert.

Late last month, a federal court ruled in a lawsuit against Carroll County (Maryland) commissioners that prayer in the name of Jesus had to come to a halt. Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver tells OneNewsNow the court ordered secular prayers only.

“In other words, you have to have essentially a secular poem,” he explains. “That’s what happened in this particular case with these commissioners now in a 3-2 vote saying they will only use nonsectarian prayers to open their meetings.” Continue reading

History’s Greatest Event

fee9b184-f214-4f52-8fb7-f5bdf25547bdThis week starts the anniversary celebrations of the greatest event in history. Two thousand years ago, in a rather routine and inconsequential act for that time, Roman authorities nailed a man to a cross. What happened next is subject to dispute. But since then, most of the western world has believed that three days after his execution, the man named Jesus came back to physical life.

Whether one believes it happened or not, indisputably the first Holy Week fundamentally transformed civilization. Today, several billion people globally will celebrate Holy Week. They believe Jesus died for them, rose again from the dead, stayed on the earth for 40 days and then ascended to Heaven “from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead,” as the Apostles’ Creed proclaims.
