    The media says America is cursed with a xenophobic president who fears and loathes refugees. Yet the Americans who voted for him at the highest rate (higher even than native-born “whites”) were foreign-born one-time refugees. The media says America is blighted by an isolationist know-nothing president who ignorantly, chauvinistically and provincially shirks our nation’s international commitments, especially regarding common defense. Yet this week this president got a rousing reception in the capital of a nation 7000 miles and an ocean away where he pledged to install America’s most modern Polaris missiles for the common defense.The media says America is cursed with...

    The FBI on Monday announced terrorism charges against 23-year-old Harlem Suarez of Key West, Florida, who portrayed himself online as a member of ISIS and allegedly wanted to carry out a terrorist attack on American soil.Toward this end, law enforcement says Suarez thought he was purchasing an operational backpack bomb for deployment in Florida, but it was actually a dud sold to him by FBI operatives. He was also allegedly trying to get his hands on an AK-47 rifle.According to NBC News, Suarez told informants of a plan to pack the bomb with nails, bury it on the beach, and...

    Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1 Happy Birthday America and thank you George Washington! It has been over a decade since America could actually celebrate its birthday and not feel guilty about it. Whether it was protesting the war or the eight years of Obama trashing this Country one speech after another we finally have someone in office who loves America and what she stands for. America has been the beacon of freedom in a world of dictators and despots who oppress...
  • The 4th of July – The Concord Battlefield And When The Mystic Chords Of Memory Fray

    Every year, between Memorial Day and the 4th of July, I make a pilgrimage to the place where America began – the battlefield in Concord, Massachusetts. Today, it's a national park with beautiful green hills, flower beds, a meandering river and the Minuteman Monument. The colonists gave birth to a new nation not on July 4, 1776 (with the signing of the Declaration of Independence), but at the Old North Bridge in Concord, on April 19, 1775. Words are fine and necessary, but nations, like individuals, are born in blood. The Battle of Concord was the first time the colonists...
  • FL: Open Carry March Draws Hundreds of Second Amendment Supporters

    Hundreds of men women and children participated in an open carry march in Florida on the 4th of July.  On video posted on facebook, you can see the march stretching into the distance in front of and in back of the camera. You can also see the wfla video posted on wfla.com.  It is taken at a corner. That perspective makes the march look much smaller. From wfla.com: INVERNESS, FL (WFLA) – More than 300 people marched through the streets of Inverness in Citrus County to show their support for the Second Amendment on the morning of Fourth of...

    Happy Birthday, America! It’s 2015, and we are freer than we have ever been to pursue happiness as the Declaration of Independence promises we have an inalienable right to do. As of last week, the Supreme Court guaranteed gay Americans, who once lived in the shadows, the full range of privileges and legal protections. People of all races have never been so free to live and work as they choose, in full security, with full rights and respect as citizens, and with the opportunity for advancement. The Internet has given us full individual freedom of expression, and created new avenues...

    This is a tough Vortex to speak. I’m as patriotic as the next guy. I remember being a young lad of 15 as my country celebrated its bicentennial back in 1976. I watched TV that day from six in the morning until well past midnight as the non-stop, commercial-free, wall-to-wall coverage on the giant national birthday party was broadcast from sea to shining sea. I watched the tall ships sail into New York harbor, saw the explosive fireworks show over D.C. I listened and sang my lungs out with a lump in my throat as Arthur Fielder conducted the Boston...

    Our nation, formed in such idealism in 1776, today is under assault. Some people might think that word “assault” is just a metaphor. Our values under “assault.” Our religious rights of conscience being “attacked.” All that is true, of course. But I’m talking about real, literal assault. Unborn babies in today’s America are literally – not figuratively – assaulted. They are physically attacked in the womb, dismembered, often in the most painful ways imaginable. They, even more than our nation itself, are truly “under assault.” Through the work of National Right to Life, our state affiliates, local chapters and others,...

    I live in a rust-belt town. Most of my neighbors are the grandchildren of eastern European immigrants. Many are, like me, the children of World War 2 veterans. The majority I'd classify as JFK democrats, old-school conservative democrats. From my front yard I can see one other American flag out today besides mine. One other flag, out of perhaps 25 houses.

    This 4th of July (which may be our nation's last 4th of July in peace), the majority of Americans throughout this land will be enjoying a day off with family and friends, eating, drinking (getting drunk), and making merry totally excluding the REALITY of our nation's founding and totally oblivious to where our godless nation is rapidly heading at present (Rev. 6-19). As long as we have our cell phones (which is our life), ignorance, pleasure, food in our stomachs and some partial remaining freedoms... all is good and tolerable in the "land of the free". Throughout the years I...

    “In America, the streets are paved with gold. You can buy any fruit you want any time of the year without standing in line. You can be anything you want to be.” These were things my parents told me to lull me back into submission whenever I had reservations about coming to America. Even after we came, if I complained about living here, the response was: “Would you rather be back in Iraq where your dad would be forced to go to war, possibly get killed? Would you rather not have school options?” The land of justice. The land where...

    I awoke with a start at the loud noise. I thought it might be early revilers when I realized it was just my tenants stomping their displeasure at the lack of hot water. I had hoped to be able to sleep later on my day off from my rotating shift at the Rite-Aid medical clinic. As my mind began to clear I realized today was the Fourth of July. In my youth it was known as Independence Day. Since it was removed from the list of federal holidays for its racist past not many people find reasons to celebrate. Even...

    by Gina Cassini | Top Right NewsA thief who stole a very special flag, gave in to pangs of conscience, when he returned it to its rightful owner -- with an apology. That's because he stole it from the family of a firefighter killed on 9/11 As the NYPost reported, The flag he stole flew over the World Trade Center during recovery efforts. The September 11th Families Association gave it to Melissa Brengel in honor of her 29-year-old brother, Jonathan Ielpi, an FDNY member who died when terrorists destroyed the World Trade Center.Brengel reported the flag missing from her home in Huntington...

    While Americans today are roasting hot dogs and setting off fireworks, few will be thinking deeply about the significance of the event we remember, the issuing of The Declaration of Independence by our courageous Founding Fathers. Christians should realize, however, that the ideas enshrined in the founding of our nation and in the Declaration are biblical ideas that are just as important today. Reformed Christians, especially, should see in the language of our Founders the ideas of covenant theology that are essential for us to recover and defend today. With this in mind, let me offer three reasons why the...

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania We meet to celebrate the birthday of America. The coming of a new life always excites our interest. Although we know in the case of the individual that it has been an infinite repetition reaching back beyond our vision, that only makes it the more wonderful. But how our interest and wonder increase when we behold the miracle of the birth of a new nation. It is to pay our tribute of reverence and respect to those who participated in such a mighty event that we annually observe the fourth day of July. Whatever may have been the...
