    God Bless America and protect all souls from the breath-taking evil of the Obama-Clinton cabal. There’s something special you can do on this Independence Day, the last one before the cabal backing Barack Obama’s third term through Hillary Clinton gets to change July 4th to ‘Global Citizen Independence Day’. It starts by opening your windows and letting all negativity go flying out into the summer breeze making it truly gone with the wind. Mark July 4, 2016 as the one when the heart-rending song, ‘God Bless America’ was turned into a fervent, year-round prayer.

    It’s time for God to stop blessing America during the seventh-inning stretch. Welcome to the July 4 holiday weekend — when once again, baseball fans will be assaulted by the saccharine-sweet non-anthem “God Bless America” at stadia all over this great land. But no matter which home team you root, root, root for, “God Bless America” should be sent permanently to the bench.

    The Star-Spangled Banner survived the rocket’s red glare and bombs bursting in air – only to face a modern-day threat – silly town ordinances and petty bureaucrats. I’m not sure if it’s an epidemic of anti-American nincompoopery sweeping across the fruited plain or if it’s a general lack of common sense. Maybe it’s both. I’ll let you be the judge of that.

    A pillar of contemporary leftism is the notion of "white privilege." Given that a generation of high school and college students are being taught that a great number of "unearned privileges" accrue to white Americans -- the charge of white privilege demands rational inquiry. The assertion turns out to be largely meaningless. And more significantly, it does great harm to blacks. First, no reasonable person can argue that white privilege applies to the great majority of whites, let alone to all whites. There are simply too many variables other than race that determine individual success in America. And if it...

    "War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength." In George Orwell's dystopic novel 1984, the totalitarian Big Brother regime issues perverse edicts reflecting the opposite of what is said. Likewise, in the American Civil Liberties Union's dystopic world, "silence is freedom of speech." The latest example unfolded recently in the Pittsburgh suburb of Monroeville, Pennsylvania, where the ACLU bullied the city council, which had been considering allowing faith leaders to give rotating prayers before the meetings. The Council had long been opening with recitations of the Lord's Prayer, and after a complaint from a single, disappointed petitioner morphed into...

    For more than a decade boys and girls at Glenview Elementary School would start the day by gathering on the playground to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. The children of Haddon Heights, New Jersey would conclude their patriotic service by saying "God bless America." It was a tradition birthed by two kindergarten teachers in the aftermath of the Muslim terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 - a way to honor those who lost their lives on that terrible day. But that tradition ended Monday - thanks to the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey. The school's principal sent a...

    YULEE, Fla. – It took less than a week of public outrage to convince the Nassau County School District to allow the phrase “God Bless America” in schools after officials caved to legal threats over its use in morning announcements. Last week, Yulee High School officials received a letter from the American Humanist Association – an atheist advocacy group – stating that some students objected to the “God Bless America” sign-off used by a student who runs the morning announcements. The Association alleged the phrase is a “constitutional violation” that’s inappropriate.

About 300 of the signs were handed out at First Baptist Church of Bartow following a Fourth of July sermon. But three months later, City of Bartow Code Enforcement says the temporary signs have worn out their welcome. Residents have three days to pack it up or pay a minimum fine of $25 a day.

    Dear Fellow Fan, It was wholly a pleasure to get your video of Kate Smith singing "God Bless America" as only she could -- and did. It rekindled childhood memories of listening to the Kate Smith radio show every school day morning at 9 in Miss Hinkle's fourth grade class. It was the best part of the day, not counting baseball at recess. It included a wrap-up of the day's news, and so fulfilled the Current Events requirement. But the show wasn't over till the fat lady sang. And did she ever, especially "God Bless America." Her version has no...

    An elementary school in Massachusetts has told kids not to say the word “God” in the Lee Greenwood song “God Bless the USA” during a recent assembly. Instead, they wanted students to say, “We love the USA.” Many parents were not happy with this move, but some agreed that the principal did the right thing. The school decided that they would pull the song from the assembly all together instead of continuing a debate about it. Michael Graham, a conservative radio talk show host with WTKK in Massachusetts, joined Martha MacCallum on America’s Newsroom to discuss the matter. Graham disputes...

This is in addition to the everyday 10 percent discount for military members and their families. The extra discount also applies to spouses and dependents.

Freedom, for example. One thing I’ve always taken for granted is that if a civil authority (e.g., the police) wishes to enter my home, a warrant is required to...

If, as has been the case for his entire presidency, he is true to his word, he will be as magnanimous to his successor as he was to his predecessor; notwithstanding the disrespect he received at the hands of both.

But Chambliss fell just short of the 50-percent margin that Georgia law requires.

Sarah Palin’s appointment as John McCain’s running mate, Americans have grown increasingly concerned about her brand of radical Christianity. A new recording released to the media today by Barack Obama’s campaign, gives definitive proof that Gov. Palin’s pastor, in an emotional tirade, once called on God to “bless” America. The recording captured at Wasilla Bible Church, the Palin’s home congregation, will doubtless cause discomfort among educated Americans, and raises new questions about Gov. Palin’s worldview. “It’s...
