    Proverbs 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy. Once again we find the Establishmedia caught with its hand in the Corruption Jar. George Stephanopoulos has once again shown how the media is nothing but an arm of the DNC. It is not so much a revelation as it is a confirmation of this fact. It simply underlines how the Leftwing Media is an enemy of freedom and democracy which manipulates the dialogue to maintain and advance the Marxist agenda. It shows we have moved from moral relativism to...

    On December 18, 2014, Barack Obama officially began the war on police as he signed an Executive Order establishing the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Since the signing of this Executive Order, 55 Officers have been killed in the line of duty. Yet, this mattered little to Obama who justified his Executive Order as he spoke about “the distrust that exists between too many police departments and too many communities – the sense that in a country where our basic principle is equality under the law, too many individuals, particularly young people of color, do not feel they...

    We send good conservative people to Washington, DC. Most go wobbly, rino or worse. Oppression is on the rise. Institutions that worked so well to keep us free for so long are powerless to stop a rampaging executive branch. What happened? We stopped maintaining our republic. There isn’t a worldly creation that doesn’t need continual upkeep and renewal. Without regular maintenance to our marriages, autos, homes, bodies and souls, they will degrade and eventually cease to operate, or will ill-serve their intended purposes. Everything not consciously maintained and reinvigorated will degrade and spoil. The ancients were aware of this as...

    On Friday, the Pentagon raised the threat level across all military bases and compounds within the United States to “Force Protection Bravo” in response to the “increased and predictable threat of terrorism”, announced Captain Jeff Davis of U.S. Northern Command. The threat level was raised after FBI Director James Comey admitted that ISIS has thousands of sympathizers currently living inside the country ready to wage jihad. The FBI has also ordered agents to put under 24/7 surveillance more than one hundred U.S. residents that are considered possible terror threats. Officials from the FBI told ABC News that agents have been...

    Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Throughout the week Pam Geller has been singled out as someone who unfairly provoked Muslims into attacking her by having a Mohamhead drawing contest. Nobody will disagree that to Islam drawing a picture of their death cult leader is the same as poking a lion with a stick, the question is should she. The secular answer according to the media is mostly no, she should not yell fire in a crowded theater, in her case the theater is on fire while...

    “American liberalism today”, writes Jonah Goldberg, “sees no realm of human life that is beyond political significance, from what you eat to what you smoke to what you say. Sex is political. Food is political. Sports, entertainment, your inner motives and outer appearance, all have political salience for liberal fascists”. While Liberal fascism differs from classical fascism, what unites them are their “emotional or instinctual impulses, such as the quest for community, a faith in the perfect ability of man, the authority of experts, and an obsession with the cult of action, and the need for an all-powerful state”, notes...

  • To Those Who Fear A Runaway Article V State Amendments Convention.

    Vanity (A good one)
    A couple of prominent conservatives have expressed concern over the possibility of a ‘runaway’ Article V state amendments convention. Such is their anxiety that runaway tyranny from Rome-on-the-Potomac pales in comparison to the possible horrors of the states getting together to relieve their people from oppression. Are these concerns fact based or irrational or somewhere in between? An important, and likewise extra-congressional vestige of the federal system of 1787, and quite similar to an Article V state amendments convention in its constitutional foundation remains in force today. It is the familiar Electoral College (EC). Like the state amendments convention, the...

    Two leading newspapers have posted incorrect reports regarding the role of Free Republic in the dissemination of a bogus story about an alleged pre-existing spinal injury to Freddie Gray that contributed to his death in Baltimore police custody. Those incorrect reports are being repeated by blogs. The Baltimore Sun falsely reported: "The Free Republic website said Wednesday that Gray's "life-ending injuries to his spine may have possibly been the result of spinal and neck surgery that he allegedly received a week before he was arrested." The article also said the injury was the result of a car accident and cited...

The basis of Lenin’s statement is very much alive today within the Democrat party as they relentlessly attack and sow hatred towards cultural, moral, and religious institutions that conservatives hold dear. “This is the basis of the great cultural war we’re undergoing…. We are two countries now. We are two countries morally, culturally, socially, and theologically. Cultural wars do not...

    It’s a pity the Russians didn’t enforce the constitution they had. The Soviet Constitution shared more than a few similarities with the US constitution. The rights to property, private correspondence, freedom of religion & conscience, equality before the law, and the right to earn/keep earnings and to leave inheritances are there. All considered, it wasn’t bad for peoples who had only known Mongol hordes and Czars for the past thousand years. Despite these guarantees, the Soviet Union was a slave state from its inception. How could oppression have lived side-by-side recognized assurances of so many personal rights? Slavery was certain...

    “The belief that Islam is a peaceful religion and that Islamic terrorists have twisted that faith to unrecognizable extremes is a false interpretation that surrounds today’s narrative regarding Islam”, writes Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch. The greater overall threat this misconception poses is neglected because of fear and outright denial to acknowledge what or who our enemy truly is. The more we lie to ourselves and allow our politicians, media and government officials to lie to us, the more we enable terrorists to become embolden. Spencer further notes, “we cannot possible defeat an enemy whom we refuse to understand, refuse...

    “It is when the majority in a country becomes weak, indifferent and confused that a criminal minority, beautifully organized like all gangs, seizes the power”, wrote Ayn Rand in her open letter To All Fifth Columnist. Speaking about the tragedy of today, Rand concludes that “by remaining unorganized, mentally unarmed, indifferent and confused, we are serving as innocent Fifth Columnists of our own destruction”. This indifference in America to cultural issues that we believe are seemingly unimportant is akin to the appalling fascination of watching a man being hanged with the slowly dawning realization that it is a reflection in...

    Dennis Ross and David Makovsky in Israel’s Drive Toward Self-Destruction, argue that Netanyahu must offer up hope to Palestinians or face a revived de-legitimization movement. They’re certainly right to point out that the delegitimation movement will grow, but they are wrong to suggest that the answer is for Israel to offer hope to the Palestinians. How facile is that? They argue that what Israel needs to do is begin capitulating even before the negotiations commence, let alone, conclude. They want Israel to give up its bargaining chips for nothing in return. The Palestinians don’t hope to be given a state,...

On March 31, 2015, Iran will have taken “its rightful place in the community of nations” in a way only Barack Obama could have imagined as a final nuclear agreement is reached. Moreover, “by the time Obama leaves office”, writes David Rothkopf of Foreign Policy, “no country on Earth will have...

    Over 50 years ago, with much fanfare, President Lyndon Johnson declared "unconditional war" on poverty in America. Since that bold proclamation, we have expended over $22 trillion of our national treasure in this so-called "war". Much of that coming out of the paychecks of working people and transferred to "poor" people by way of welfare, food stamps and a large variety of other government programs. Despite the expenditure of this enormous amount of taxpayer money, the problem of poverty has not gotten better. In fact, it has gotten worse. Even more alarming, the middle class, which was growing rapidly...

    Before the New DealThe essay Federalism: Yesterday and Today covers Federalism from the Founding period to the modern era, with some attention paid to the Progressive Movement. The Progressives thought that the solutions to America’s problems, which they believed originated with Big Business, would only be found in Big Government as a counterbalance. They believed that Big Government should nudge, or even coerce, Americans to “live properly” – which meant to live as this university-educated elite saw fit. The earlier essay laid out their political and social agendas. The Constitution was an impediment to this agenda, and the Progressives needed...

In this article, I would like to explore one of the ramifications of that principle, and discuss how it was applied in our founding document. This is the principle that "divided power is limited power," and why it is important, constitutionally and morally speaking, for power to be both divided and limited.

When you are on a rocking horse everyone else seems on a high one. For someone who has reached new lows as the worst leader in the world’s history, he has the gall to pretend he is a preacher. To accuse Christians of being prideful by their outrage of a religion that is at the heart of fanatical cultists; burning someone alive is an accusation that encapsulates liberalism. Christians today...
  • Reliance on the Virtue of Politicians Cannot Restore our Republic.

    A common solution at FreeRepublic for the ills of our nation is to just enforce the constitution we have. Elect enough Tea Party conservatives and freedom will be restored. From the moment of our independence, the first question, as posited by Mercy Warren was “what government consistent with the Declaration of Independence can be designed by men too proud for monarchy, too poor for nobility, and it is to be feared, too selfish and avaricious for a virtuous republic?” Republicanism was in our blood. Despite the efforts of the British Crown, all of the states had evolved from quasi-republican colonies....

    "Our debts, national and personal, are huge. We can never pay them off. Our trade imbalance is just as bad. Our recovery is based entirely on a house-price balloon that could burst in a moment. The main effort of the Government is to avoid any shocks until the Election is over-but what then?" Peter Hitchens "Mail on Sunday" column Sunday 2/01/15 The story of politics everywhere in the world from Obama's America to Cameron's Britain is all about faking people out about the true nature of the economic situation. The "Conservative" Prime Minister sits on a debt mountain worse than...

    American liberty has always been held up by two pillars. Limited government and unlimited resources. What happened in the 1970's was that the USA moved toward a future based on limited resources. (That has naturally pushed the USA in the direction of unlimited government because of the need for the government to adjudicate over relatively scarcer resources.) In order to facilitate the republican vision of limited government its important that pubbies also push for a future of unlimited resources. Toward this end the republican party needs to have a technological vision Greater than Reagan's Star Wars for foreign policy which...

    Genesis 14:21 The king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the people and keep the goods for yourself.” Just as the price of gas is reaching levels Americans can both go to the grocery store and fill their cars in the same week, our Glorious Premier Obozo decides to close the remainder of the ANWAR desert to oil exploration. This oil reserve holds more than thirty years of energy for America and would further stabilize the price of gas, but Marxists like him hate cheap oil so he is closing this production by edict. Alaskans want to develop and...
  • The Fifth Branch of Government.

    For several decades, conservatives have lamented the growth of the administrative state, aka the fourth branch of government. Created by congress, directed by the president, and armed with semi-despotic powers, these administrative agencies, by the number of regulations they issue, are the real lawmakers in the once American republic. On paper, the fourth branch is accountable to the reps of the people, the House and Senate of the United States. Liberals love them, for while these agencies are subject to congressional oversight, they are for practical purposes, extensions of the will of the president and are unaccountable to congress. Consider...

    It seems America has a steely determination to kill herself. Let's look at the events of the last few days, since January 12, 2014. Nancy Pelosi named a Muslim Congressman to the very important House Intelligence Committee, which will afford him access to some of the most secretive information on America's war on terror. Rep. André Carson of Indiana has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood through the Muslim American Society / Islamic Circle of North America (MAS/ICNA) groups, and in May of 2012, asserted that American schools should be modeled after madrassas, which are Islamic teaching schools. The President...

    Matthew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. It seems all the conservative commentators cannot understand why the Onazi regime continues to make a pretzel appear straight with their explanation of the Islamic barbarians in Paris. They cling to their Koran and thuggish tactics like a terrorist holding an infidel’s head while reporters try to explain the unexplainable. After he snubbed the biggest march in history against Islam, the world asked in astonishment how the leader of the free world could not lead a procession for freedom of...

    The smoke has cleared, and John Boehner, the neo-progressive Obama-enabler, has retained his House Speaker position. Despite a clear and unequivocal message sent by many millions of Americans and conservatives, the dissenters in the House who would have removed Boehner numbered only twenty-five -- twenty-five men and women of conviction, out of two-hundred thirty-six. That is a mere 10.5% of the total Republicans seated in 2015. The reseating of Boehner, who I now call the Crying Cheeto (due to his weepiness and odd orange skin color), guarantees an agenda of appeasement of Democrats, a failure to rein in an out-of-control...

    I think the vote for speaker demonstrates a clear need for having a well thought out process for choosing who is the leader concerning the house and senate and also a process that will remove the obvious blackmailing using campaign funds and committee assignments and committee chairmanships. Right now it is damned shame that is is ran almost like a Mafia family selecting it's leadership or union Boss "Card Check" election. Here is what needs to be done: Selecting the Speaker of the House, House Minority leader, Senate Majority/minority leader. 1. Once the House/Senate members are seated a member may...
