Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who became a national figure by heading the Freddie Gray lynch mob, did not even bother to show up....

Movies like Jurassic Park and the Land Before Time only heighten that sense of wonder and raise the stakes behind that question.

    Our federal government was not assumed by royalty or nobility, but was created by the sovereign states. The creature and the limited delegated authority entrusted to it at creation cannot be superior in power to their creator. The federal government may be larger in size, but not necessarily greater in authority. Understanding this foundational principle and enforcing proper governmental boundaries are essential to protecting the people from the tyranny of a large, centralized government. America’s application of this principle is unique in that local elected officials are not considered lesser in terms of authority, but greater. For example, county sheriffs...

    This week Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg waded into the political domain and unintentionally bolstered the chances for Donald Trump to win the presidency. Calling him a "faker with a big ego," the 83-year-old Justice threatened to move to New Zealand if Trump wins in November. Alarmed that Ginsburg's outburst could work in Trump's favor, the Washington Post's editors criticized "her abandonment of the veneer of judicial impartiality. The acceptance of the Court's authority to strike down legislation enacted by the people's representatives relies on a perception of unbiased application of basic legal and constitutional rules.

    We Americans like to think of our revolution as not being radical; indeed, most of the time we consider it downright conservative. It certainly does not appear to resemble the revolutions of other nations in which people were killed, property was destroyed, and everything was turned upside down. We can think of Robespierre, Lenin, and Mao Zedong as revolutionaries, but not George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. We cannot quite conceive of revolutionaries in powdered hair and knee breeches. They made speeches, not bombs; they wrote learned pamphlets, not manifestos. They were not abstract theorists and they were not...

    Amidst polls showing her lead over GOP rival Donald Trump dwindling, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned voters against “the most divisive and unfit candidate in our nation’s history.” A key consideration from Clinton’s perspective is the fact that “Republican voters passed over 16 worthy representatives of the GOP brand and latched onto a man outside the mainstream of government. Trump hasn’t been a participant in any of the processes for governing a city, state, or nation. He has no record to run on.” Hillary contrasted Trump’s lack of governing experience with her own “30-year career at the center...

    The home and small shop manufacture of ammunition is an interesting subject for those debating the potential for disarming the population.  Guns are not very hard to make.  They are routinely made in third world workshops and by first world hobbyists.  Some of the simplest to make are some of those most detested by the opponents of armed self defense.  Homemade submachine guns are commonly found in Brazil and Israel. Many who oppose armed self defense have made the case that ammunition is the weak point in a black market or grey market economy.  They assume that ammunition is...

    During the last 60 years, the number of guns in private hands in the United States has risen sharply.  During the last two decades, the number of murders and non-negligent homicides have fallen sharply.  More guns do not equal more crime.  In response, opponents of an armed population have shifted their focus and changed the terminology that they use. Instead of gun control, they call restrictive policies "gun safety". Instead of focusing on violent crime, they have created the term "gun violence".  Most people consider gun violence to be "gun crime". The opponents of gun ownership use the term...

This problem, the conflation of the electoral and sovereign capacities of the people isn’t new; it goes back to the mid-17th century English Revolution and was only sorted out in the minds of some men just as the 1787 federal convention was under way.

According to Allen, the paragraph beginning 'We hold these truths to be self-evident' has been misinterpreted thanks to a rogue period that was not in the original document. And that could completely transform our understanding of how the Founding Fathers viewed the role of government, The New York Times reported.The line as it is most commonly reprinted reads: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,...

In 1814, the poet and lyricist Francis Scott Key penned the lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” originally known as “Defense of Fort M’Henry.” During the War of 1812, Key witnessed the attacks on Baltimore and wrote the words based on his experiences this night.

    Today is the day that we Americans re-proclaim our independence. The conditions we live under today are in many ways the same as those our forefathers had to endure in 1775 when they took up arms to fight to live as free people. At that crucial point in our history we had to decide to either meekly submit to the tyranny of an unelected monarchy with its oppressive foot on our throat; or stand and fight risking everything including even more oppression if we didn’t win. When we started our First American Revolution in 1775, winning was as doubtful as...

    DAD, WHAT's UNABHÄNGIGKEITSTAG? "Is that when the thirteen colonies broke away from England?" My ten year inquired out of nowhere at 6 AM German time this morning. "Yeah, why do you want to know, eat your breakfast," I mumbled, too sleepy to be very curious. "Because I am afraid my teacher will ask me, since I am wearing this T-shirt and I'm the only American in the class." With an effort, I adjusted my gaze upward to his white T-shirt. It was brand new. Prominent on his breast was an image of the flag and below that: OLD NAVY FREEDOM...

    Sunday, July 03, 2016 The Right to Happiness is the Antidote to Tyranny Posted by Daniel Greenfield Revolutions are not unique. Some countries have revolutions all the time until revolution becomes their national sport. In banana republics the overthrow of one dictator to make way for another gives everyone a day off from work. These revolutions, no matter how they are cloaked in the familiar rhetoric of liberty, are nothing more than tyranny by other means. What made the American Revolution unique was that its cause was not the mere transfer of power from one ruler to another or one...

    Excavating toilets might not seem like glamorous work. But this team of archaeologists were not complaining when they unearthed 87,000 artifacts dating back to the American Revolution while digging up 250-year-old outhouses in Philadelphia. The Commonwealth Heritage Group made the fascinating find on a dig at the site of the new Museum of the American Revolution, which opens next year. Twelve of the brick bathrooms were uncovered during the dig just two blocks away from Philadelphia's Independence Hall, the Huffington Post reported. Intricate crockery, finely detailed jugs, wig curlers and an array of beads were found during the excavation....

    BELLOY-EN-SANTERRE, France - In the end, Alan Seeger's bones could no longer be distinguished from those of his Foreign Legion comrades who had fallen alongside him in one of the most brutal battles of World War I. United across nations, it was the glorious death that he craved. Seeger - an American poet, romantic and soldier - died on that most American of days, July 4th, a century ago Monday. Barely 28, he was already fighting for a global, common cause that bound dozens of countries together at a time when the United States was still a bystander, reluctant to...

    How will Obama tell us to celebrate Independence Day tomorrow? Will He speak of Independence from The Dead Constitution? Independence from Islamophobia, or perhaps Independence for Safe Space Demanders? Let's get ready to celebrate our own Independence Day tomorrow and then on November 8th.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Be9f7Ovgg Some get it, some don't. Oh well. What difference does it make, Now? What difference will it make as Bill Whittle's young American Fascists become government officials and increase their authority over us? We need to keep that from happening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeEPSjOBzRA As Stephen Kruiser wrote at PJ Media, our great lefty "journalists" had to get into the game. One complained...

    ABC | July 1, 2016 | Self
    Over the weekend I had the fortune of getting an embargoed copy of the 2006 television miniseries on ABC, "The Path to 9/11." After its only broadcast, ABC embargoed this---it was never released on DVD. It is easy to see why. Clinton's fingerprints were all over the failure to stop 9/11. Sandy Berger is portrayed as a completely gutless political hack. Richard Clark is depicted as knowledgable but completely in cover-your-@ss mode all the time. But even the good FBI agents, including John O'Neill, were so constrained by the "laws of evidence" they were utterly helpless. The CIA and the...

    Tuesday, June 28, 2016 A Socialist Les Miserables in Venezuela Posted by Daniel Greenfield A mob of starving people advanced on the presidential palace chanting, “We want food”. They were met by soldiers and police dispatched by the tyrant from his lavish palace decorated opulently with a golden sun, giant rock crystal mirrors, sparkling chandeliers and towering oil portraits. The scene wasn’t 19th century France, but 21st century Venezuela. And if you are wondering why you haven’t seen it on the news, it’s because Venezuela is a Socialist disaster area that was once being used as a model by the...
