    In previous generations, Americans had the sense to understand that if you vote for people who don't represent you, you get a government that doesn't represent you. That's self-evident. – Alan Keyes, LoyalToLiberty post, Sept. 23, 2012 Everywhere I go, I find conservatives complaining. They complain about what John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have done, or rather failed to do, with the GOP majority in Congress. They complain about the GOP's utter failure to confront Obama's treasonous foreign and national security policies. They complain about the party's failure to call Obama to account for his dictatorial edicts on immigration. They...

    ...Americans still loyal to the premises of right and justice must emphatically reject this decision. They must refuse to submit to it, just as in colonial times America’s first patriots refused to submit to British taxes imposed without regard for the will of legislatures elected by the people... The Obergefell decision is a more directly treasonous betrayal of constitutional law and justice than any of those previous acts of tyranny. As ratified by the American people, the U.S. Constitution derives its authority from their sovereign will. In the Declaration of Independence they cite the authority of “the laws of nature...

    A prominent black leader is coming to the defense of embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was pilloried on Thursday after the New York Times published a quote by him referencing slavery. “He wasn’t talking so much about black folks, but about the harm and damage that the leftist socialism has done to blacks,” said former U.N. Ambassador Alan Keyes, who also is a columnist for WND. Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s son, told WND that the quotes were taken out of context and that his father was commiserating over the poor situation in which blacks find themselves because of oppressive...

    In a recent WND article, Bill Federer cites Barack Obama's emphatic proclamation, back in 2006: "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation." Mr. Federer then proceeds to detail the facts that prove incontrovertibly that, when the American people ratified the U.S. Constitution, Christianity was the formally declared basis for public service in 9 of the 13 original States; and that conformity with tenets or practices consistent with the Christian religion were declared or required in the constitutions of the others. Of course, people who subscribe to Obama's murderous death cult shrug off these facts with a...

A group of black Republicans just published a bill of particulars detailing the abuses they believe warrant the impeachment and removal of the Obama government and its collaborators.

The health of the mother exception is universally recognized by authentic pro-lifers as a loophole you can drive Roe v. Wade through.

    During the GOP’s blatantly rigged 2012 primary season, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., distinguished herself as a sincere spokeswoman for the conservative grass-roots constituency the nomination of Mitt Romney will emphatically betray. Just recently she joined with several of her colleagues courageously to demand an investigation into evidence the Obama faction has placed people associated with organizations that promote Islamic jihad and Shariah law into high-level positions in the U.S. government, from which they may be exerting inordinate influence on America’s foreign and national-security policy.

    In 2010, Paul Gosar was elected to represent Arizona’s 1st congressional district in the U.S. Congress. With the help of a much-publicized endorsement from Sarah Palin, he rode to victory on the wave of resentment against Washington that fueled what came to be called the tea-party movement. Given this background, I naturally paid attention when I ran across a YouTube video in which Gosar told a gathering of conservative activists, “If all you’re going to do is stand just for the Constitution and nothing less, you will lose. … Because not everybody believes in the Constitution.” (For a written report...

    The headline read "3 in 4 say religious rights trump law." The article went on to explain that "In the Knights of Columbus-Marist Poll, nearly three in four Americans, 74 percent, said freedom of religion should be protected 'even if it conflicts with other laws.'" The juxtaposition of the headline and the explanation provide a perfect illustration of the way in which rights and freedoms are carelessly conflated these days, in a way that could have very damaging unintended consequences. For example, if religious freedom per se trumps other laws, what about the so-called "honor killing" permitted by Islamic law...

    “The boom, not the slump, is the right time for austerity at the Treasury.” So declared John Maynard Keynes in 1937, even as F.D.R. was about to prove him right by trying to balance the budget too soon, sending the United States economy — which had been steadily recovering up to that point — into a severe recession. Slashing government spending in a depressed economy depresses the economy further; austerity should wait until a strong recovery is well under way. Unfortunately, in late 2010 and early 2011, politicians and policy makers in much of the Western world believed that they...

    The dispute over Barack Obama's eligibility to be president erupted during the 2008 election campaign and featured among others a lawsuit filed on behalf of Ambassador Alan Keyes against California election officials who did not check whether Obama was eligibile. Now the 2012 campaign is charging ahead at full throttle, and the issue is still alive. That's because the case was before the U.S. Supreme Court for a conference today. A conference is a meeting at which the justices decide which cases they will review. To date, none of the Obama eligibility challenges that have reached the high court have...

It masquerades as a clever ploy intended to tag Obama with the damaging political consequences of the U.S. government's runaway spending and indebtedness.

    Herman Cain is certainly aware that the First Amendment withholds from the U.S. government the power lawfully to prohibit the free exercise of religion. But has he thought at all about the connection between that provision and the one that says that no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification for "any office or public trust under the United States"? Mr. Cain apparently believes that in today's world Americans have good reason to distrust any follower of Islam. But the Constitution explicitly prohibits officials of the U.S. government from applying religion as a criterion for public trust, whatever...

The remark, and the fact that Mike Huckabee is the one who made it, confirm an insidious truth about the cynical New Deal political paradigm that structures the activities...

    *snip* America began with a ringing acknowledgement of the existence and authority of God. It began with the assertion of unalienable rights derived from God's authority. It began with an effort to respect that authority by establishing government based on the premise that all legitimate government aims to secure those God-given unalienable rights and must therefore derive its powers from the free and deliberate consent of the governed. Thus, without reference to "the laws of nature and of nature's God" the constitutional liberty of the American people cannot be understood or sustained. The key issue for America's future is not...

    In chemistry a reagent is defined as “a substance used to detect or measure another substance or to convert one substance into another by means of the reaction which it causes.” With this in mind, the Ground Zero Mosque (GZM) project is turning out to be an effective political reagent. In their reactions to it America’s political and other public figures are taking stands that reveal their core priorities and motivations. In my last posting I discussed this in regard to Ron Paul’s slashing attack on the GZM’s opponents, among them the families and friends of those murdered in the...

    According to Newsmax “Ron Paul unleashed a lengthy and at times angry statement on his website Friday that supports the rights of Muslims to build what’s become known as the “Ground Zero Mosque.” As they read about it, I’m sure not a few of his admirers will disagree with him. But as usual they’ll dismiss it as another aberrant outburst from someone whose views they otherwise applaud. If Newsmax is right about his feelings, though, it makes sense to ask why he feels anger at the people opposing the GZM project. I think it’s because he accepts the view that...

    The title of this post obviously alludes to Herman Kahn’s book, Thinking About the Unthinkable . Kahn is famous for his contributions to strategic thought at the onset of the age of thermonuclear war. With the G-string concealed bias one comes to expect there, the Wikipedia article about him suggests that his influence contributed to “the fallout shelters, evacuation scenarios, and civil defense drills now seen as emblematic of the paranoid 1950s”. Paranoia implies an irrational sense of threat and persecution. Yet given mid-twentieth century realities, the real madness (or is it wickedly calculated deception?) appears evident in the left’s...

    This morning I noticed a link to a posting from the FreedomWorks website in which Freedomworks Chair Dick Armey presents their endorsement of David Malpass in the GOP primary for the special U.S. Senate election in New York. I then paid a visit to the candidate’s website, which headlined a recent endorsement by Sue Kelly, formerly a New York Congresswoman, and a prominent so-called “pro-choice” Republican. The quote from her endorsement statement tells us that “David…has the experience and skill set to grow the economy and create jobs.” Such enthusiasm from someone who aligns with the Democrat party’s abandonment of...

    I always find it repugnant when Barack Obama pretends to articulate and apply America’s moral values. As products of Saul Alinsky’s finishing school for Marxist protégés, Obama and his crew have no respect for the self-evident truths in which those values originate. It’s not that they have no use for them. On the contrary, they refer to them only when they are useful for ideological warfare. Obama’s reference yesterday to religious tolerance, and America’s respect for religious freedom, is a case in point. According to an AP report, he “is weighing in forcefully on the mosque near ground zero, saying...

    When given the chance to register an opinion, the majority of Americans express their desire to keep intact laws and government policies that respect the God-ordained natural family. The people of California did so in Proposition 8. Many of them are justifiably outraged at the decision taken by federal Judge Vaughn R. Walker that purports to invalidate their will. The key to Judge Walker's assault on the constitutional sovereignty of the people of California is found in these words: A state's interest in an enactment must of course be secular in nature. The state does not have an interest in...

    A couple of days ago I read a story reporting Brian Bilbray’s remarks about the issue of Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be President. Bilbray denied that the phrase ‘natural born citizen’ has anything to do with birthplace. He asserted that “a natural born citizen is someone who is born in the U.S. or overseas if the birth is registered with the government.” Bilbray’s statements prompted one commentator to ask “Where is this guy from? Is he dealing with a full deck?” But the whole tenor of Bilbray’s obtusely wrong and dismissive statements is consistent with the Republican Party’s derelict response...
