    The Restored Republic Let the light of the Statue of Liberty always live in your heart, and never be taken from you “Never in the course of human endeavor, has one nation risen up to declare that every citizen is their own sovereign, where the powers of government, are subservient to the rights of the individual. Liberty is the light to freedom in a world of darkness and oppression. Liberty has a home, it’s called the United States of America.

John Dickinson of Pennsylvania and James Duane, Robert Livingston and John Jay of New York refused to sign.

    President Trump may be facing a roadblock on the rest of his nominees but he’s outpacing his predecessors when it comes to getting federal judges confirmed after his fifth court pick was approved by the Senate on Tuesday. Alabama lawyer Kevin Christopher Newsom was confirmed to a seat on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on a 66-31 vote, with 16 Democrats joining the GOP. He’s the third circuit judge approved so far, and combined with one district judge and Supreme Court Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, it puts the president and the GOP-led Senate well ahead of pace. By...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano, a senior judicial analyst for Fox News, was a guest lecturer last week at Mises University in Auburn Alabama. During an opening lecture where he discussed natural rights, the development of the Constitution and footnote 4 of United States v. Carolene Products Co., he closed the question and answer period following his lecture by saying he saw dark clouds coming for the country and warned the students that some of them may die in government prisons by standing faithful to first principles. The full warning is here (1 minute 33 seconds):

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 9 July 2017 | John Semmens
    President Trump’s defense of “western values” in his speech in Poland this week was condemned by a pair of left-wing magazines. The New Republic’s Jeet Heer called it “a paean to white grievance.” The Atlantic’s Peter Beinart called it “an outburst of racial and religious paranoia.” “Mr. Trump’s unapologetic praise of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness puts ‘white values’ ahead of alternative perspectives,” Heer complained. “His pledge of support for the dignity of every human life is a thinly-veiled jab at a woman’s right to abort her unwanted child. His assumption that it is the hope of every soul...
  • White "privilege" is a direct result of our American heritage and Judeo-Christian work ethic

    07/05/2017 11:16:25 AM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 34 replies
    "White privilege" (their term for self-sufficient productive people) is a direct result of our American heritage and Judeo-Christian work ethic and free market economy. America was founded on the Judeo-Christian principles of liberty, freedom, self-sufficiency, self-responsibility, self-governance, respect for God, respect for self, for each other and the law, civic responsibility and the value of family, church, tradition, education and hard work. The liberal/progressive/atheist/socialist democrats have been working overtime for a hundred years or more trying to tear all that down. They are teaching our children that there is no God, that government is all powerful and will provide for...

    During Saturday’s Freedom Rally at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump said that ever since 1776, America has always affirmed “that liberty comes from Our Creator.” He also told the evangelical community that his administration will “support and defend your religious liberty.” In his speech, the president celebrated God’s presence at America’s founding and Religious Freedom in America today. Following his salute to America’s veterans, he stated, “Tonight we celebrate veterans. We also reflect on all that we cherish as Americans. We love our country, we love our families, we love our freedom, and we love our...
  • Were Confederate Generals Traitors?

    Creators ^ | June 28, 2017 | Walter E. Williams
    My "Rewriting American History" column of a fortnight ago, about the dismantling of Confederate monuments, generated considerable mail. Some argued there should not be statues honoring traitors such as Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis, who fought against the Union. Victors of wars get to write the history, and the history they write often does not reflect the facts. Let's look at some of the facts and ask: Did the South have a right to secede from the Union? If it did, we can't label Confederate generals as traitors. Article 1 of the Treaty of Paris (1783), which...

    Fortnight for Freedom: Please Spend Some Time Working and Praying to Protect Your Religious Liberty Msgr. Charles Pope • June 22, 2017 • There has been a steady erosion of religious liberty in the United States in recent years. It has been challenged through a broad range of incidents, requirements from the medical world, health insurance mandates, and court decisions. We often take our religious freedom for granted, but it is under substantive though sometimes subtle challenge. We are in the midst of a sea change; we are being told that religion has no place in the marketplace, in...

    Former President Barack Obama in Montreal this week warned the world against income inequality and the concentration of wealth, all while pulling down $7,700 per minute at his $400,000 speech. Obama’s first post-presidency address on Canadian soil was loaded with anti-Trump, anti-capitalism and anti-American rhetoric. Big surprise there. Obama said that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful, NBC reported and noted that Obama is now “striving to be an international community organizer.” He said the U.S. and other nations showed there was a better way “in creating an international order that was...

    If you approach the study of our Constitution with the mental image of building a house, it’s easier to comprehend and retain what you are learning. The original four short pages that make up the seven Articles of the Constitution provide the concrete foundation and the framework. The authors were literally called the “framers” of the Constitution. The Articles are short, to the point, and critically important in understanding the foundation of our republic. Patrick Henry said, “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the...

    any who would rewrite history, would have us to believe the women during the revolution were oppressed subservient wives of overbearing husbands who dictated policy in the home. Nothing could be further from the truth. The founding women of our nation carried themselves with dignity and strength; believing with their hearts and souls the value of Liberty was worthy of their families’ sacrifice. These were women of principle, of courage, and of great resolve, willing to sacrifice all so that their children could be free.

    LYNCHBURG - For students and non-students alike, President Donald Trump's commencement speech at Liberty University Saturday was important and impactful. "I loved it. I love Trump.

    A fiery Michelle Obama vigorously defended the healthy eating initiative that was her biggest legacy as First Lady on Friday, telling a public health summit in Washington D.C. that something was “wrong” with an administration that did not want to give consumers nutrition information or teach children to eat healthily. “We gotta make sure we don’t let anybody take us back,” Obama said. “This is where you really have to look at motives, you know. You have to stop and think, why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you?

One of the newest citizens is a Baltimore Oriole who gave the city nine memorable years. he special ceremony, which happens twice a day in Baltimore, was a little more nerve-wracking than stepping onto the field at Camden Yards. Orioles Hall of Famer Melvin Mora has become a U.S. citizen after 17 years in the country. "I was trying not to cry," Mora said. "I said, 'What am I doing?' You know, I've been hitting with 40,000 people and now my hands are shaking so you know...

    Miracle? State House passed a bill saying liberties ‘don’t come from governments, but from Almighty God’ May 10, 2017 | Scott Morefield | Print Article From whence do our liberties derive? Are they from the whims of man, of whoever has the power to grant or deny them at any given moment in history, or are they from an almighty, unchangeable force? It’s an important philosophical question, because if the answer is the latter, any attempts to deny humans their God-given liberties are by definition anti-God and worthy of opposition by decent-minded people.

    In another move to free up domestic energy supplies, President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday aimed at lifting the Obama administration’s offshore drilling restrictions.For decades, bad policies have blocked access to America’s abundance of domestic resources, yet America has still managed to be a global energy leader. Trump’s executive order, “Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy,” could unleash further success in the energy sector.The economic potential sitting just off America’s coasts is enormous. The Outer Continental Shelf is awash with natural resources, containing an estimated 86 billion barrels of oil and 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.Realizing...
