  • Exposing the Myths You've Always Believed about Thomas Jefferson: From Sally Hemmings to His "Deism"

    What kind of criticism would prompt a major publisher to withdraw from circulation a New York Times bestseller by a recognized scholar? One would think the objections would have to be weighty and the critics unquestioned experts in the particular field. In the case of "The Jefferson Lies", one would be mistaken to make those assumptions. In 2012, David Barton's popular analysis of Thomas Jefferson was pulled by the book's publisher, Thomas Nelson, based on what appears to have been an academic putsch designed to protect the now popular view of the third president as a secular deist and hypocritical...

    Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface. These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict.

    Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface. These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict. So it perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that Eric Errickson’s media venture “The Resurgent“, is taking Super-PAC money from the (formerly Scott Walker advocates and financial backers) Ricketts family of Wisconsin who fund...

    Rafael Cruz shown speaking to the Freedom Club at their luncheon meeting Monday at the Minneapolis Club. (MinnPost photo by Brian Halliday) Rafael Cruz, father of Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, appeared to have little difficulty selling his son to members of the conservative Freedom Club at their luncheon meeting Monday at the Minneapolis Club. But it wasn’t the younger Cruz’s positions on taxes or social issues or gun rights that made an impression.  It was the depiction of Ted Cruz’s personality — brash, extremely conservative, and unapologetic — as communicated by his father, a pastor...

    About That Carly Fiorina “Faces” Super-PAC Campaign Ad…. For those who follow the GOPe Road Map, and are fully aware of the goals therein, here’s a little something to put in the memory file. Thanks to an enormous media push most people have seen the Carly Fiorina “faces” political ad. However, what most people didn’t pick up on, is that the ad itself did not come from the official Fiorina campaign – it came from the Super-PAC “CarlyForAmerica“. Federal campaign law forbids coordination between a candidate’s Super-PAC, with unlimited funding sources and/or limits on contributions, and the official campaign itself....

    LANCASTER, Pa. -- America just marked its 239th Independence Day, the birth of what many consider the greatest nation on earth. But after all these years of celebrating, Americans may soon be mourning its downfall. That's the conclusion of researcher George Barna and historian David Barton in their book U-Turn: Restoring America to the Strength of Its Roots. ***** Faith is losing its foothold in the land. "The proportion of unchurched people has risen from 28 percent to 48 percent in six years," Barna shared. "The fastest growing faith group in America is atheists and agnostics."

    When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general...

    Does Sen. Ted Cruz believe AIDS is God's punishment for being gay? Does Cruz believe that government should regulate homosexuality and that public schools are using anti-bullying laws to indoctrinate children into homosexuality? Does Cruz believe that we need more hate and less tolerance in the world? If not, perhaps Cruz should explain why he's headlining a legislative conference in Dallas this weekend hosted by a group whose founder has said each and every one of those things. Cruz, along with another potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate, Gov. Bobby Jindal, is scheduled to keynote the Wallbuilders ProFamily Legislators Conference, which...

    Throughout our nation’s history, the Church has been a force for good in America and abroad. But over the last 50 years, government has systematically eroded our free speech and religious expression. The Bible and the Gospel have been banished from our public schools and our public squares. With more than 75% of Americans calling themselves Christians, it’s time for the Church to rise up and take action to turn the tide in our nation! We have the numbers and we have a voice. If we are silent, we have no one to blame but ourselves for a Godless America.

    Its just a thought piece. I am sure I could cite hundreds, if not thousands of examples of topics removed from public government schools in favor of topics more sympathetic to social justice. As could you. There is a very long train of abuses here. For topics on my mind in this context, I recently posted text of the 1100 Charter of Liberties, in which King Henry plainly stated that it is oppressive to buy back your inheritance - the death tax. Also, I am currently recording the full text of the Colored Patriots of the American Revolution, here -...

    American history author David Barton recently claimed that over half of Christian college students lose their faith while studying at their higher education institutions. "Between 71-88% of our Christian kids who go to college are renouncing their faith at college, and...over 50% of our Christian kids who go to Christian colleges are renouncing their faith at Christian colleges because the professors in the Christian colleges were trained by the pagans in the secular colleges," Barton said on the Kenneth Copeland's Believer's Voice of Victory program earlier this month. "So those Christian professors, 'Christian' professors, are trained by those pagans and...

    Christian conservatives are trying to draft historian David Barton to challenge Sen. John Cornyn of Texas in the Republican primary this spring, Politico reports. Despite being voted one of the most conservative members of Congress by the National Journal in 2010, Cornyn apparently isn’t conservative enough for tea party activists who have elevated Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to hero status. Barton is an eloquent orator, broadcaster, and author who heads WallBuilders, a national organization that promotes “the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built,” according to its website. His critics have labeled him anti-gay and some historians...

    Two Tea Party groups recently declared war on Republicans who voted to end the government shutdown. The Tea Party Nation and the Tea Party Leadership Fund want to run Tea Party-approved candidates against sitting Republicans as punishment for being "traitors." One Tea Party favorite, debunked Christian historian David Barton, is rumored to possibly run against Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), notes Warren Throckmorton at Patheos.org. A "Draft David Barton for US Senate" Facebook page has been set up and currently boasts 1,445 members. One pro-Barton advocate claims on his blog that "last week a meeting occurred between Tea Party leaders and...

    I'm trying to find a school textbook about government mentioned on the American History Series show Jan 27, 2013 by Davide Barton. I believe he said it was the first textbook published for the State of Connecticut around the 1850s. He also said all of the thirteen states used it, and many states used it up until around the 1960s. I can't remember the title, but it was a tiny book with just four items: 1. The Declaration of Independence 2. The Constitution of the United States 3. George Washington's Farewell Address 4. [I can't remember] It ended with...
