    Q: Why are the voters rebelling? A: The leftist progressives have been treading on our constitution and our liberty for at least the last 100 years and consequently we've suffered a long train of abuses and usurpations: The income tax (16th amendment), ending state sovereignty/concentrating power at the federal level (the 17th amendment), the Fed, heavy-handed/unconstitutional regulations, socialized retirement, socialized health care, restrictions on religious liberty, legalized abortion, federal mandated homosexual marriage with the heavy hand of the federal government enforcing it over the objections of the states and small business operators, the illegal alien invasion, the subversive Muslim invasion,...

    Shot Glass of History ^ | George E. Harrell
    After the American War for Independence, both Britain and the thirteen newly freed states felt the need to centralize their political power. Many in Congress, fearing that Britain or another European nation would take advantage of the fragile American governments, deeply in debt and without any means of protection, sought to form a stronger union than the one established under the Articles of Confederation. This shift from “thirteen independent sovereignties”[i] to united states has gone down into our popular mythos as an integral part of the American progression towards liberty, so it is not surprising that few people today are...

    Newt Gingrich told Breitbart News that the country is in rebellion against the coastal power centers and that Donald Trump might be the candidate who can "kick down the doors" of the establishment. Former House speaker Gingrich weighed in on Trump's rise. "I think he represents a different era" in the same conservative movement, Gingrich said. "The system has become so incompetent and outrageously buracratic. The centers of power are so, so in New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, that the whole rest of the country is in rebellion. And people are looking for somebody who can kick down...

Diaz even managed to avoid the reporters staking out the Hilton Alexandria Old Town, chasing anybody who showed up for what had been code-named "family meeting."

    The 2016 GOP presidential campaigns agreed on Sunday evening to cut the Republican National Committee (RNC) out of the debate negotiation process and instead deal directly with networks moderating debates, Breitbart News has learned. Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for frontrunner Donald Trump, confirmed to Breitbart News via phone on Sunday that the “biggest consensus” of five separate points the GOP campaigns agreed on was cutting the RNC out of the negotiations with the networks, as the campaigns would each like to negotiate with the networks directly. In response to the revelation that the RNC will be cut out of...

    Like Elvis, Donald Trump brings his own style to the stage, an energetic, in-your-face, New York style that drowns out the classic pop tunes of the day Rock & roll (R&R) exploded onto the music scene in the 50s and ignited a cultural revolution. New sounds with irresistible rhythms swept teenagers up in a whirlwind of passion. But parents of those excited teens werent so enamored with the new hip. In fact, they went from parental coaxing, to stern warnings, to banning the music altogether. But Rock & Roll was here to stay. Prior to Elvis, kids sorta, kinda listened...

    Good evening and happy Friday. I was recently shown the difference between Romans 13 in the King James, and Romans 13 in the NIV. These differences are stark and their meanings are fundamentally different. I'll give you the verses and let you find the difference. [Rom 13:1-7 KJV] 1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a...

    Donald Trump is now the 2016 GOP frontrunner. That sentence would have sounded ridiculous a month ago, but here we are. The billionaire real estate mogul and reality star has tough-talked his way to the top of the ticket for 24 percent of Republican voters, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll. As The Upshot's Nate Cohn explains, Trump's post-announcement poll bump is of a completely different magnitude than what we're seeing elsewhere in the crowded GOP field. All of which has observers scratching their heads and asking: what do people see in the guy? A lot, as it...

    In the wake of the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church, America seems to be bent on eradicating even the hint of any symbol regarding the Confederacy, from removing the Confederate battle flag from public spaces to even deleting Civil War computer games. Serious people have proposed banning Gone With the Wind and sanitizing The Dukes of Hazzard. Others have advocated blowing up the Jefferson Memorial and other monuments to famous Southerners whether they had anything to do with the Civil War or not. However, if America is serious about expunging any hint of the Confederacy, it must even ferret...

Calling for a thorough and complete debate, the first-term senator asked: "Do we want to live in a world where the government knows everything about us?...

    There is something very, very wrong with the Albuquerque, New Mexico police department, and the citizens have just about had enough. Before I get into the heart of this story, I need to provide you with a little background. The Albuquerque Police Department (APD) is well known for its outrageous and inappropriate use of violence. So much so that it has been under investigation by the Department of Justice, which wrote a letter to the Mayor of Albuquerque on April 10, 2014 condemning the police force. Heres an excerpt from the letter: Based on our investigation, we have reasonable cause...

Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then...

We dont have to accept recent history we just need to change the presidency, Perry continued. We must elect the right kind of leaders to represent us to Washington.

    PARIS -- Ceding to protestors' demands, Ukrainian parliament members voted last week to impeach President Viktor Yanukovych and hold early elections, which have been set for May 25. Online "slacktivists," keyboard warriors and various media outlets responded by breathlessly declaring the situation a "revolution" -- and in some cases even proclaiming it a successful one. Except that it isn't at this point. Far from it. Proponents of freedom and democracy would love nothing more than for Ukrainian citizens to fully control their own destiny. However, mere wishful thinking is no substitute for manifest reality, and semantics shouldn't replace substance. Otherwise,...

    When I saw "The Hunger Games," I was sure there was a strong anti-government message that seemed closely related to our current situation in the USA. The newest episode in the trilogy, "Catching Fire," sharpens that message even further. Jennifer Lawrence is headed for a position as one of those generation-defining actresses, much the way Katherine Hepburn, Raquel Welch, and Meryl Streep were. I'm not talking acting talent, although it's pretty clear Jenny can act. I'm talking about the actress who most quickly comes to mind when you talk of the early 21st century. She delivers another excellent performance as...

    Mission accomplished, and with the sequel, the gloves come off. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a muscular, engrossing, unexpectedly bleak epic of oppression and insurrection, directed with dramatic urgency and a skilled eye by Francis Lawrence (Constantine, I Am Legend). Set in the fascist future state of Panem, the movie takes pains to show its young mass audience what living under a totalitarian dictatorship might look and feel like. But the sharpest aspects of Catching Fire the parts that sting play as an allegory for today. Very few people will take in this spectacle of a society...

    The administration is risking rebellion from some Democrats in Congress if it fails to deliver on its promise to fix HealthCare.gov by the Nov. 30 deadline set by President Obama. By and large, Democratic lawmakers have held their fire to give Obamas team space to fix the technical problems that have stalled the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. If the presidents team fails to deliver, Democrats will embrace legislation extending the laws enrollment period or forcing insurance companies to continue offering plans that do not meet ObamaCares standards, according to Democratic aides.

    Once an idea is unleashed upon the world, there's no telling where it will lead. That is one lesson to be drawn from studying the astonishing influence of John Calvin's theology on the subsequent history of the world. Born five hundred years ago today, Calvin deepened the Protestant Reformation by building on Martin Luther's break from Rome, formulating a sternly ascetic version of Christian piety that, as Max Weber powerfully argued more than a century ago, inadvertently laid the psychological groundwork for the development of capitalism. Others have noted the surprising ways that Calvinist ideas helped to legitimize representative political...

    After the Revolution, Thomas Jones, an embittered loyalist exile, identified the culprits he deemed responsible for the rebellion in New York: the Whig "triumvirate" of Presbyterians--William Livingston, William Smith, and John Morin Scott. Jones averred that in the Independent Reflector (1752-53) and Watch Tower (1754-55), which they authored, "the established Church was abused, Monarchy derided, Episcopacy reprobated, and republicanism held up, as the best existing form of government." The three wrote "with a rancor, a malevolence, and an acrimony, not to be equaled but by the descendants of those presbyterian and republican fanatics, whose ancestors had in the preceding century...

    When the American Revolution broke out, at least in the Scotch-Irish version of the story, the Ulster natives leaped at the opportunity to attack the British crown. "Call this war by whatever name you may. . . ," observed one Hessian officer, "it is nothing more or less than a Scotch Irish Presbyterian rebellion." King George allegedly called the conflict "a Presbyterian war," and another official stated that cousin "America has run off with the Presbyterian parson."

    Coming predominantly from former homes in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, the first permanent European settlers began arriving in the area west of the Catawba River during the 1750s. These settlers were overwhelmingly Scots-Irish Presbyterians who traveled here by way of the "Great Wagon Road." Allied by both blood and religious affiliations, the Scots-Irish pioneers moved through the Shenandoah Valley and the present-day towns of Winchester, Lexington, and Roanoke in Virginia, and eventually pushed south to Salisbury, North Carolina. From here they drifted southward along the Catawba into South Carolina. In order to set the stage for the 1780 Presbyterian Rebellion,...

    The commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of the great Geneva Protestant Reformer, John Calvin, took place this past July 10, 2009. Without question, Calvin was a giant among men used by God to rediscover and expound on biblical truth that long had been forgotten and rejected by Rome. His influence on all spheres of life is immeasurable, and today, his understanding of theology is making a huge comeback within certain quarters of the Christian community. However, what Americans do not realize immediately is that the birth of the American republic is steeped in Calvinist presuppositions, and perhaps...

    Let me explain, gun grabbers, how your confiscatory fantasy plays out. Let us imagine for a moment that a sweeping gun control bill similar to the one currently suggested is passed by the House and Senate, and signed into law by a contemptuous President. Perhaps 50-100 million firearms currently owned by law-abiding citizens will become contraband with the stroke of a pen. Citizens will either register their firearms, or turn them in to agents of the federal government, or risk becoming criminals themselves. Faced with this choice, millions will indeed register their arms. Perhaps as many will claim theyve sold...

The Republican nominee pledged that, if elected, he would prosecute a far more engaged foreign policy, including helping to arm the opposition in Syria's bloody civil war. "Hope is not a strategy," Romney said. Romney spoke at the Virginia Military Institute in what was billed as a major foreign policy address. After aggressively challenging the incumbent on economics at last week's debate, Romney is looking to build on...

    Raynor Memorial Libraries at Marquette University ^ | January 1, 2005 | Richard Gardiner
    Abstract During the era of the American Revolution, King George III and his supporters perceived that the war was a "Presbyterian Rebellion." Why? The label "Presbyterian" was a much more ambiguous designation than it is at present. Employed broadly as a synonym for a Calvinist, a dissenter, or a republican, the term was used with considerable imprecision in the eighteenth century. Furthermore, it was used as a demagogic tool to inflame popular passions. The term Presbyterian carried with it the connotation of a fanatical, anti-monarchical rebel. Those who designated the war a Presbyterian Rebellion could be considered biased, partisan, and...

    In Brief: The Republican Party began by electing members to Congress; it worked. The Republican Party didn't begin with Lincoln The last successful third party in American politics elected its first President in 1860. The party of course was the Republicans and the President was Abraham Lincoln. But the Republican Party didn't begin with Lincoln, and it didn't begin in 1860. Still, the birth of the Republican Party was meteoric by today's standards. They were organized on February 28, 1854, held their first convention on July 6, and elected forty-four Representatives and fifteen Senators in November (19% of the House;...

    Why stay? President, Congress should just go home until after the election By Judd Gregg - 04/23/12 05:44 AM ET The president is in full campaign mode. So is Congress. The federal government has been put into a holding pattern until the November elections. Like Major, Major, Major from Catch-22, it appears that although everyone in Washington is still there, no one is actually there. This being the situation, one might ask Why dont they all go home? They could leave Washington to the pundits and lobbyists. President Obama could go back to Chicago and campaign from there, reconnecting...

    Reflections on the anniversary of Lexington and Warsaw... By April 19, 1775, the British armed forces had been occupying Boston, Massachusetts for almost seven years. Soldiers demanded room and board from the residents of this religious town, founded over a century before by immigrants seeking a safe and hospitable place to live and work and practice their quiet, respectable, honorable denomination. But the British grew ever more tyrannical in the 1760s, until soldiers were underfoot, on the corner, in the shops, in the Bostonians very homes. Their freedom the liberty their ancestors had braved the dangers of ocean voyage...
  • This Level Headed FReeper is *NOT* voting for Romney (VANITY)

    With all of the chicanery that the GOP-E has done over the last year, and helped the media to do over the last year, there's NO WAY I'm surrendering to these creeps. Romney is *NOT* our candidate! He's their candidate, we're NOT REPUBLICANS! We are conservatives and constitutionalists FIRST. We believe in small government! Not this big government crap that Romney has peddled for the better half of the last decade or two, and I certainly can't do any more nose holding at the ballot box. Voting for a big government republican is the real world equivalent of cutting off...

    Another "sagebrush rebellion" is brewing with Arizona possibly laying claim to 25 million acres of federal land. Supporters of the modern day land grab say federal agencies have mismanaged the land and blocked access to natural resources while depriving the state of jobs and revenue from businesses ready to develop those resources. The state says if the feds fail to do so by 2014, the state will begin sending the federal government property tax bills.
  • Trumps Paper Tiger Rebellion Against Conservatives

    In the spring of 2011, Donald Trump threatened to start a revolution within the Republican Party, appealing to the naive among Tea Partiers by promising to take on President Obama as no one else could. All too many members of the conservative media, including even some highly reputable ones, took his nonsense seriously.
  • New Santorum ad calls for "Rebellion" against the Republican establishment

    Here's Rick Santorum's latest ad, and in my opinion, it's his most powerful broadside against Mitt Romney and the Washington establishment. REBELLION This comes on the heels of another Santorum ad that does exactly what the Not-Romneys should all be doing--demonstrating that there is no difference between Romney and Obama. EASY ANSWER These hard hitting ads should put to rest any ideas that Rick Santorum is running as a stalking horse for Romney or for the Vice Presidential slot. Santorum is doing exactly what many of us hoped he'd do--hit Romney hard, again and again. Win or lose, you've got...

    A senior Scientologist has condemned the controversial religion's leader for turning the organisation into an autocratic, heavy-handed fundraising machine. Debbie Cook, one of the most respected members within the Church, sent a shock email denouncing chairman David Miscavige to 12,000 Scientologists just minutes after midnight on New Year's Day. She accuses him of turning the Church, which numbers celebrity followers including Tom Cruise and John Travolta, into a tyrannical regime in direct conflict with the doctrine laid down by founder L Ron Hubbard in the 1950s. Writing under a banner of 'Keep Scientology Working', Mrs Cook called out

    Most self-affiliated members of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest national organizations for the grassroots conservative movement, would vote for Mitt Romney as president if confronted with a choice between him or President Obama, according to a poll of members released to The Hill on Friday. The group surveyed its members this week in an informal poll posted at the groups website. The question asked was: If Romney is the GOP nominee, what will you do in the general election? Fifty-two percent of about 1,150 respondents said they would hold their nose and vote for Romney if he becomes...

    "In 1919, Georg Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary. He immediately set plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary. Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children, then both the hated (traditional) family and the Church would be dealt a crippling blow, Lukacs launched a radical sex education program in the schools. Sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) and sexual intercourse while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority. All...

    ...Nonetheless, the most memorable line that ranks perhaps within the top ten of all of Shakespeare's work, is the famous line spoken from this rebellion "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers." (King Henry VI, part II, Act IV, Scene 2, Line 72). What is misunderstood regarding this line is that today people place it in the modern context of all lawyers. In those days, the only person allowed to have a lawyer was the king, never the defendant. The lawyer for the king is what we distinguish today as the PROSECUTOR. Thus, what is really being...
