    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."

    With all of the stress we Patriots are facing everyday during these days of this POTUS and government gone crazy, there must be some comic relief. Since I have been known to compare Obama to Hitler on more than one occasion(much to the chagrin of many of my liberal family members), this made me laugh until I cried. There are a few choice words in it, so be forewarned.

    'If we're going to get a grip on this, we have to know their narrative and understand it' A noted specialist on Islamic law and ideology from the Center for Security Policy, who has been cited as an expert for the Pentagon, says a coalition of Islamists and Marxists is working to destroy the United States. The comments come from Stephen Coughlin, a lecturer for leading Department of Defense institutions such as the Naval War College, Marine Corps HQ-Quantico and for the FBI. Coughlin is a retired major in the U.S. Army reserves and was assigned to USCENTCOM, with a...

    If Barack Obama loses next November, we'll look back on Sunday -- July 31, 2011 -- as the day he became a one-termer. He demonstrated the one key quality common to all unsuccessful leaders: Haplessness. In the most confrontational partisan moment of his presidency, Obama ended up looking remarkably powerless. He didn't get his way. To put it mildly. The deal he endorsed on the debt ceiling will long be an object of debate for both right and left. There's so much for everyone to dislike in it that people are lining up to rage against it, even though it...

    Last night I watched this German movie called “Downfall”. It’s about Hitler’s last days and the battle of Berlin (not just from the Bunker). I have seen other similar films, but this one to me is clearly the best. I know you have already seen other films on this subject before, but I think it’s well worth your time to watch it. It’s a German film so it’s all Subtitles (don’t let that discourage you… It’s like the movie Das Boot). Oh and be sure to use a headset too. That way you feel like you are in the theater....

    We see now that the image was all a fraud. The things that made the public like Tiger personally -- the low-key demeanor, manners, and sweet smile of countless sports-page photos, magazine covers, political analogies, and most important, product endorsements, was an act. The larger lesson here is about how much artifice -- sustained, deliberate deception -- goes into the construction of a public persona when there is profit to be made or power to be had. In one instance reporters had photos of a "transgression"...committed in a church parking lot, no less. These journalists agreed to keep it secret...

The Arabic-language video, entitled "The West and the Dark Tunnel," is part of series of messages by the organization marking the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Bin Laden released a short message of his own on Sept. 14. Like similar long messages on previous anniversaries, it featured testimony from several leading al-Qaida figures intercut with news footage from the past year.

    Japanese Pop Idol Recast as Junkie Earthquakes, tsunami tidal waves, typhoons, floods and landslides kept Japanese news gatherers busy over the Obon week when Japanese traditionally return home to pay respects to departed relatives who return briefly from the spirit world. It wasn't, however, any act of God that shocked the nation but alleged drug use by singer Noriko Sakai. Manufactured pop idols cranked out by Japan's powerful production companies have dominated Japan's music charts for decades. Sakai, who debuted at 15 in 1987 with squeaky voice, clean-cut image and cute nickname, Nori-P, was one of the most successful winning...

    Relations between Russia and Germany have not been good since Vladimir Putin's nationalist sabre-rattling this summer, but they are about to get a whole lot worse. A new film about to be released in Germany will force both countries to re-examine part of their recent history that each would much prefer to forget. Yet it is right that the ghastly truth should finally be acknowledged. The movie, A Woman In Berlin, is based on the diary of the German journalist Marta Hillers and depicts the horror of the Red Army's capture of the capital of the Third Reich in April...

He rarely carries pennies because "they take up a lot of room for how much value they have." Instead, like so many other Americans, he dumps his pennies into a bucket back home in Sarasota, Fla.

    It was mid-July 2004. The constitutional deadline for enacting a state budget had passed a month earlier, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, eight months into his governorship, was squabbling with Democratic lawmakers over a spate of budget-related issues. Schwarzenegger was frustrated because he had, in his own mind, bent over backward to accommodate Democrats' demands for sparing health and welfare programs from severe cuts, even though the state faced a multibillion-dollar deficit. He had abandoned his initial demands for midyear spending reductions and then added $3 billion to his revised budget. In return, Schwarzenegger had sought concessions, such as making it easier...

    "Downfall" is proof that it’s still possible in these timid and cautious days of Hollywood moviemaking that a movie about a big subject can be told with complete uncompromising conviction. The only misleading fault to that statement is that this film is not from a Hollywood studio. It’s a German import made by director Oliver Hirshbiegel ("Das Experiment"), and the only buzz its received this season is that it was one of the out-of-left field nominees for best foreign film at this year’s Oscars. Yet it could be the most remarkable film in the foreign film category, or just about...

    Folks are complaining that government took God out of public life, but they fear trying to do anything about it. Much of our common language is now censored in favor of "political correctness" and it probably will not be long before making any derogatory remark will be a federal felony. Today, instead of teaching kids patriotism and American history in school, parents stand by and allow their kids to be taught the feel-good benefits and joys of foreign cultures by socialist leaning public school teachers. Even in government schools, American patriotism is somehow painted in a bad light in favor...

Why is it that some societies in the past have collapsed while others have not? I was discussing famous collapses such as those of the...

Al-Watan in its Wednesday edition focussed on the reasons behind the rapid downfall of Baghdad regime, contributing it mainly to the close cooperation of Saddam Hussain's cousin, Mahir Takriti, with the coalition forces. This daily adds, "Mahir Takriti was in charge of defending the central parts of Baghdad and Saddam's administration had assigned him the task of exploding all bridges over Tigris, but after getting assurance from the US...
