    Between the colonial and Revolutionary periods of American history came what historians have dubbed the (first) “Great Awakening.” The lack of passionate Christianity, along with the coinciding adoption of certain liberal interpretations of Scripture and a turn toward the secular, greatly concerned ministers such as Jonathan Edwards, Thomas Prince, and William Cooper. By the 1730s, passionate and animated pleas for the souls of lost Colonials became widespread. A common refrain was soon heard throughout the colonies: “God was an angry judge, and humans were sinners!” The earliest principle figure of this period of spiritual revival was the brilliant and pious...
  • This Is What It's Like To Spend A Day With A Venezuelan Government Minder

    We were trying to count the people standing in a breadline when William Contreras arrived. The line was forming outside of a bakery in the Caracas run-down neighborhood of Catia, about 20 people long with a half dozen more sprinting past me and our photographer, Cristian Hernández. It was a perfect illustration of the desperate situation of a country that was, a few years ago, boasting of its oil-funded socialist prosperity. Contreras was our government minder, a bulky 50-year-old alderman with salt-and-pepper hair. When he pulled up to us, he seemed oblivious to the snaking line.
  • Revolutionary Forebears: Sidney & Alinsky Part I

    Article V Blog ^ | June 26th 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    Two little-known men had enormous influence during America’s runup to revolution. Algernon Sidney (1623-1683) and Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) were students of history and political science. Both advocated revolution when necessary, but toward opposing ends. In his Discourses Concerning Government, Sidney set out lessons learned since Biblical times in the hope that future generations would recognize and reverse emerging threats to free government. He encouraged men to be skeptical of their magistrates and institutions in order to improve them, to prod them always back toward the first principles of the nation. When the admirer of Sidney saw corruption, his first impulse...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 6/16/17 | Susan Frickey
    Article V is one of the most important parts of the Constitution, setting forth the amendment process. In the past, changes to a form of government in most countries were accomplished by revolution. The amendment process allowed for change to the Constitution in a peaceful manner. An amendment must be passed by two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate. Then it goes to the people, who must pass it through their state legislature. The process was made deliberately difficult to prevent changes without a lot of forethought, and required a great deal of deliberation by the Congress and...

    From 1763-1776, many Americans felt the mounting force and expanding intrusion of a Deep State and their anger grew. It happened in 1776 – America’s first revolution against a Deep State. President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to “Drain the Swamp,” if fulfilled, will bring a second revolution against a Deep State. The first Deep State in America was foreign born in 18th Century England. It impacted the Colonies through the Crown’s operatives and emissaries, some American born – some British.
  • American Revolution 'pointless' because judges now rule (Horowitz)

    World Net Daily ^ | 19 May 2017 | Daniel Horowitz
    Americans have already lost their right to self-government. Every issue of importance is decided by unelected judges. And while the Republican majority and President Trump seem without power, the country is gripped in nothing less than a “foundational crisis.” That’s the charge of Daniel Horowitz, author of “Stolen Sovereignty,” who outlined the existential stakes facing the American people in an interview with Stefan Molyneux. [snip] “Even with this system, there is a remedy to take back jurisdiction. Article III, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, the entire jurisdiction of the courts are the subject matter. The Supreme Court, much less...

    The first time a Trump campaign sign disappeared from her yard, Judy Beaty figured it must have blown away in the wind. But then two more signs went missing overnight. And when Beaty went outside to investigate the next morning, she saw that someone had vandalized her Northern Virginia home. Messages were scrawled in black spray paint on two sides of her Gainesville house: “Can you see the new world through the tear gas,” said one. “Revolution,” said the other. Beaty, 69, discovered the graffiti on Wednesday morning and reported it to Prince William County police. Since then, she has...

    Instead of trying to help reach consensus with traditional protest, they tried intimidating the opposition ... The mob that just muscled their way into the lobby of the Heritage Foundation must have missed Obama's lecture. When those partisans pushed past security onto private property, they signaled that the liberal resistance has given up on unity. Quite simply, division is the new goal. More than a tantrum, this is a significant shift in the direction of the reiterating protests that have continued non-stop since Trump took office ... Around 200 protestors flooded into Heritage's Capitol Hill headquarters an hour before noon...

    This post from Sam Harris, an entrepreneur, engineer, and former data scientist at the U.S. Air Force, originally appeared on Quora as an answer to the question, "Is the United States on the brink of a political revolution?" No. We don't have enough teenagers. When I was an officer in the Air Force, I was a data scientist, and at one point we were tasked with determining what level of violence in Iraq could be considered "normal" so that we could declare victory and leave with dignity. Obviously, the base level of violence in Iraq would be higher than in...

    Labelled a “surging dark horse” candidate in France’s presidential election, communist Jean-Luc Mélenchon has a new proposal that he hopes will maintain his momentum: a 100% tax on the rich. Mélenchon is running as the candidate of the “Unbowed France political movement, in an alliance with the French Communist Party.” Mélenchon is a colorful character whose repertoire includes showing up at rallies via hologram, enabling him to “appear” at seven rallies at once.

    On the evening of April 18, 1775, General Thomas Gage, the British commander in Boston, dispatched a contingent of troops to seize a supply of arms and powder that the colonial insurgents had stored at Lexington and Concord, as well as to arrest two leading patriots, Samuel Adams and John Hancock, who were also hidden in the area. As every schoolchild knows, Paul Revere's ensuing midnight ride called the local militia to arms, and the battles of Lexington and Concord followed the next day. Largely obscured by the great renown of Longfellow's poem, "Paul Revere's Ride", is the fact that...

    Walk in George Washington's footsteps at the new Museum of the American Revolution. The new Museum of the American Revolution is home to many of George Washington’s personal belongings. If the presidential election left you wondering how government works, then Old City’s new Museum of the American Revolution, opening on April 19, may hold a few of the answers. Former governor Ed Rendell serves on the museum board and has been involved in the project since his early days in office. “It’s filled with one great story after another—and these are stories that need to be told,” he says.

The Russia Analyst will have much more to write soon regarding the truth of what renegade Hoover Institution historian Anthony Sutton recognized as the Wall Street and City of London funded Bolshevik Revolution -- which was a necessary condition for the dialectical/occultist driven Third Reich, also funded by the City and Wall Street, in Germany. The goal, as LaRouche movement historian and RogueMoney regular guest Harley Schlanger has stated, to have the Germans...

    Now that he’s been unceremoniously dragged off the high horse of his presidency, revolutionary renegade Barack Hussein Obama has returned to full-scale community organizing with a waiting ‘Civilian National security Force’, he promised back in 2008 that would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the U.S. military” at his command. In little more than a month after the much celebrated inauguration of America’s 45th, the troops wait to welcome back the master who assembled them: 250 Organizing for Action (OFA) offices had already set up across the country, staffed by 32,000 organizers, 25,000 of them...

    On March 15th, the fate of the EU just might be decided. In the much anticipated Dutch election, Geert Wilders is looking set to take the Establishment by storm. The election that could shape Europe’s political landscape is tighter than most people think and will likely come down to the wire. The latest polls have shown Wilder’s PVV party slip to a point behind current Prime Minister Mark Rutte, but Wilders has had the lead since September, leaving many to question whether this latest poll is just a blip: As Geert Wilder’s popularity holds firm in the face of Establishment...

    It’s high time to force Obama face to face with the people he mocks, time to bring truth to power on renegade ripoff artist Barry Soetoro While Barack Obama waits in shadow mounting his resistance army to “force “ resignation or impeachment on duly elected President Donald Trump, he mocks Americans from the pages of international newspapers like the U.K.’s Daily Mail. Assuming underdog status for his post-election Shadow Government, Obama is the self-acclaimed leader of rampaging activists and rip-off artists.

    181 years ago, March 6, 1836, the Alamo garrison fell, and the fortress that had been a mission became a shrine. Francisco Antonio Ruiz was the Acalde (mayor) of San Antonio. He was an eyewitness to the events of that day. Twenty-four years later, in 1860, Don Poncho (as Ruiz was known), recounted what he had seen for the Texas Almanac. Below is his account in full. Remember the Alamo! Fall of the Alamo, and Massacre of Travis and His Brave Associates by Francisco Antonio Ruiz Translated by J. A. Quintero On the 6th of March at 3 a.m. General...

    It was recently reported that Barack Obama’s senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, would be moving into the $5.3 million walled mansion with Barack and Michelle in order to plan and plot anti-Trump activities with a goal to either force him to resign or get him impeached. Obama’s former activist attorney general Eric Holder said of Obama’s re-emergence in the political scene in order to derail Donald Trump’s presidency, “He’s coming. It’s coming. And he’s ready to roll.” So, it’s clear that Barack Obama and his allies are preparing to challenge Donald Trump’s presidency at every turn. In fact, Barack Obama’s super...
