    what he witnessed. If you love Jesus, what would be your attitude after the first Christian was shot? I know what mine would be. "Let's get this bastard now, or we're all dead." That would also be my reaction if he targeted Muslims. Once the first victim is gunned down, someone had better call all the rest to action, and then rush him. This person is going to get shot. He is going to get shot anyway. This suicide mission requires a call to action. Otherwise, people will remain inert, hoping for the best. The best strategy in an unarmed...

    The Tea Party Economist ^ | April 25, 2015 | Gary North
    Public Works Mean Taxes For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword (Proverbs 5:3-4). The author of Proverbs in the first nine chapters contrasts the faithful wife with the strange woman. He uses the metaphor of the strange woman for alluring lies that ultimately betray the person who accepts them. Here is the passage’s underlying message: something can look very appealing on the surface, but the end thereof is bitter as wormwood. Why? Because there is a system...
  • Faith-Based Fascism: Turning Churches into the State's Bagmen

    09/05/2014 5:17:10 AM PDT · by all the best · 6 replies ^ | September 4, 2014 | Gary North
    The economic heart of fascism in the 1930's was the "government-private industry alliance." It still is. In this alliance, the state provides limited funds and promotion of favored businesses. The businesses provide profits that are taxed. The state's bureaucrats increase their influence over the economy by way of favored business enterprises. The state is now heralding faith-based welfare. State money is used to favor some ministries, which conform to state requirements. In this way, the churches get "matching funds" from the state, and the state gets another avenue into the lives of the public. There will be more welfare clients,...
  • Howard Phillips, RIP

    Howard Phillips, one of the founders of the New Right movement in the 1970s, died on April 20. The cause was dementia. He died in his home. He was 72. In 1974, he founded the Conservative Caucus. This was a year after Ed Fuelner and Paul Weyrich founded the Heritage Foundation. In 1974, Weyrich started the Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress, which later became the Free Congress Foundation. All three organizations were reactions to Richard Nixon's increasingly mainstream Republican move to the left. A fourth organization, Gun Owners of America, began in 1975. Nixon had hired Phillips...

    Former Texas congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has announced plans for a K–12 curriculum for home-school students that will offer them “an education in liberty like no other.” The first phase set to launch in September, and all subjects will be taught, but the curriculum will put an emphasis on primary-source documents that focus on the “basics of Western Civilization and Western liberty — how it was won, how it is being lost, and how it will be restored” rather than textbooks.

    Former Republican congressman and three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul has launched his own K-12 home-school curriculum to provide an “education in liberty like no other.” The curriculum, which includes courses on “the economics of the Austrian school,” provides its K-5 program for free, meaning that students and families will be able to learn under Ron Paul for six years “without spending a dime,” according to one of the curriculum’s high school teachers, Ludwig von Mises Institute senior fellow Tom Woods. “Here, students learn the basics of Western Civilization and Western liberty — how it was won, how it is being...

Dinesh D'Souza wrote, stars in, directed, narrates, and did the original research for it. If we look at this from the point of view of its success as a documentary, I think it is effective. It is making money in theaters. This is amazing for a documentary. It is a campaign-year documentary, and it is a good one. It is also dead wrong. That is because it misses the fundamental political fact of...

    Godfather Politics ^ | December 20, 2011 | Gary North
    In June of 1976, I was Ron Paul’s speechwriter. Shortly after I joined his staff as his newsletter writer and economic analyst, I recommended that he do what I had been doing for a year: buy a Code-A-Phone telephone answering machine and make a weekly 3-minute recording for people in his districts to call. He could send the tape to his office in the district, where the machine would be set up at a local phone number. Residents could call it for free. He thought this was a good idea. So began his weekly speeches.I wrote his first talk. He...

    First, you must understand that Boehner is a GobGop: a Good Old Boy of the Grand Old Party. The GobGops' goal is to keep the present system funded by the Bigs: Big Business, Big Pharma, Big Oil, and Big Banking. If you do not understand this, then you are as naive as a Democrat who thinks Obama speaks for The Common Man.Boehner shilled for Hank Paulson and Goldman Sachs by begging the Republicans to vote for the $750+ billion Big Bank Bailout in 2008. Watch his emotional performance here. "We just have to do it!" No, they didn't. Ron Paul...

    Every political movement needs a manifesto. The Tea Party surely needs one. So do other grassroots political resistance organizations. They don't have it yet, but they now have its preliminary foundation, Angelo Codevilla's essay, "America's Ruling Class -- And the Perils of Revolution." I have long regarded Dr. Codevilla as America's smartest conservative political analyst. He has been unknown to the conservative public until last week, when Rush Limbaugh began promoting the best essay of Codevilla's career. I regard this essay as the finest statement on the two-fold division in American political life written in my lifetime -- more...

    Community Standards Your problem is a theological one. But you did address a real problem. The problem you addressed is the problem you would not admit. The problem is that the American community agrees with the Supreme Court of the United States. The general American public agrees that abortion should be legal. Maybe it does not agree that the third-trimester abortions should be legal, but it is not going to throw out of office the civil magistrates who enforce the Supreme Court's ruling. In fact, the Supreme Court has authorized third-trimester abortion and any other kind of abortion, but the...

    I have lived through three monumental historical events. I remember only two of them. I do not remember the dropping of the two atomic bombs in August of 1945. As symbols of scientific world transformation, this constituted the most momentous event of the 20th century. This breakthrough, so far, has not led to nuclear war, even though on several occasions, it looked as though nuclear war was a distinct possibility. Nevertheless, the arrival of the nuclear age heralded a transformation of the modern world. We have not yet seen the end of that transformation.

  • What is Theonomy?

    What is Theonomy? By Jay Rogers Theonomy means literally, "God's law," or the belief that the moral laws of the Old Testament are still binding today. This idea states that only Old Testament laws specifically fulfilled in the New Testament are non-binding (such as sacrificial laws, ceremonial laws and dietary laws). The moral Law of God is still the ethical standard for governing individuals and society. In discussing theonomy, we should first explain clearly what we are not talking about. We are not talking about salvation, but merely government of individuals in society. Salvation cannot come through the Law, but...

I'm a scientist. I know he, and his wife, tried to make science politically correct with the religious crowd by opposing the teaching of evolution in public schools. It took the appearance of Nobel prize winning physicist Steve Weinberg before the Texas School Board textbook committee to undue the damage that the Taliban-like Gablers did to the teaching of evolution.

THESE SEEM LIKE MAN’S BLESSING AND NOT GOD’S BLESSING. When you belong to SFG, grammar is not a top priority. Self-confidence is. Maggie was among the more self-confident.

    The War on Mel Gibson by Gary North THE CULTURE WAR I argue in my book that the media's war on The Passion of the Christ has been systematic and increasingly frantic. It is part of the overall culture war that is being waged by the Left on America specifically and the West generally. The chief theoretician of this war was the Italian Communist, Antonio Gramsci, who died in 1937. I go into this background in my book. Gramsci understood eighty years ago: Christianity is the enemy of Communist revolution. He wrote in 1921: What remains to be done? Nothing...

    Did Jesus Get Lost in Translation? by Gary Northby Gary North On February 25, 2004, Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ, better known as The Passion, hit the movie theaters. This was Ash Wednesday. For most attendees, Ash Wednesday is not part of their vocabulary, but it is part of Mel Gibson's. Clearly, he did not schedule this release date for commercial reasons. The movie is shown without previews of coming attractions. This fact alone would have made it an oddity. Something very strange is going on.

    This is the story of Shays' Rebellion, which I contend is the most important falsified event in American history. It is a story of speculation in government bonds, political intrigue, propaganda, and systematic deception. But it is ultimately the story of John Hancock's big toe. As recently as 2001, only one historian knew that the event that is acknowledged as key political event in the success of promoters of the Constitution was not what it appeared to be. That lone historian, Leonard Richards, had not yet finished his revolutionary book, Shays' Rebellion: The American Revolution's Final Battle. In 2002, the...

    The Case For Tariffs-Only?by Gary North For over two centuries, one of the most useful litmus tests of economic rationalism has been the tariff test. Does a would-be economist support tariffs as the way to national wealth? If he does, he is probably a crank. Probably is not absolutely. Personally, I think tariffs are excellent as stand-alone revenue-generating devices. Why? Let me count the ways. First, tariffs are sales taxes imposed on imported goods. The key political fact about sales taxes is this: they are flat taxes. They cannot be used to extract more wealth from one taxpayer than another....

    For connoisseurs of surrealism on the American right, it's hard to beat an exchange that appeared about a decade ago in the Heritage Foundation magazine Policy Review. It started when two associates of the Rev. Jerry Falwell wrote an article which criticized Christian Reconstructionism, the influential movement led by theologian Rousas John (R.J.) Rushdoony, for advocating positions that even they as committed fundamentalists found "scary." Among Reconstructionism's highlights, the article cited support for laws "mandating the death penalty for homosexuals and drunkards." The Rev. Rushdoony fired off a letter to the editor complaining that the article had got his followers'...

    Which looks proper to you: "twin towers" or "Twin Towers"? For most people, "Twin Towers" looks proper. We rarely see "twin towers" in uncapitalized mode. That was what was wrong with the Twin Towers from day one. We read of "Ground Zero." That phrase, too, is capitalized. The empty space where the Twin Towers once stood has become a symbol of lawless destruction, as indeed it is. Some people speak of Ground Zero as sacred space or holy ground. I am not one of them.

He had such a profound impact on Clinton that Clinton referred to him in his 1992 nomination acceptance speech. Quigley is famous among conservatives for his book, Tragedy and Hope (1966), in which he devoted 20 pages to the connections between Wall Street banking firms and American foreign policy, which has doninated by the liberal left (pp. 950ff).
