  • Our Revolution’s Logic

    The American Mind-Claremont Institute ^ | 10/18/2018 | Angelo Codevilla
    The primary objective of any people who find themselves in the throes of a revolution is to find ways of diverting its logic from its worst conclusions. [....] The logic that drives each turn of our revolutionary spiral is Progressive Americans’ inherently insatiable desire to exercise their superiority over those they deem inferior. With Newtonian necessity, each such exercise causes a corresponding and opposite reaction. The logic’s force comes not from the substance of the Progressives’ demands. If that were the case, acquiescing to or compromising with them could cut it short. Rather, it comes from that which moves, changes,...

    Yahoo Sports (a left-wing sports site) ^ | Sept 24, 2018 | Jason Owens
    "...as has been the theme throughout much of the first three weeks of the NFL season, roughing the passer penalties were a significant storyline from Monday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bucs, Steelers set new mark for roughing penalties Officials called four roughing penalties during Pittsburgh’s 30-27 win on Monday, which is tied for most in the league in one game since 2001, according to ESPN. While a couple of them were fairly clear violations of contact with the quarterback’s head, others appeared to fall into the vague new definition of the foul that penalizes defenders...

    A Louisiana mayor reportedly banned his city’s recreation programs from purchasing Nike products in the wake of an ad campaign featuring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Mayor Ben Zahn, of Kenner, signed a memo last week that states that “[u]nder no circumstances” can any Nike apparel or equipment be “purchased for use or delivery” at any recreation facilities in the city. “Effective immediately all purchases made by any booster club operating at any Kenner Recreation Facility for wearing apparel, shoes, athletic equipment and/or any athletic product must be approved by the Director of Parks and Recreation, or his...

Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein. His interest in Conservative Politics was exceeded only by his intellectual ability. This is the last of his works: Civil War How do civil wars happen?...

    On Sunday, a protest carried out by “Antifa” at Berkeley and members of the “alt-right” became violent, and vandalism ensued. A masked Antifa member “sucker-punched a detractor,” and other Antifa members smashed the windows at a recruiting office for the U.S. Marine Corps in Berkeley, California, Fox News reported. Filmmaker Ford Fischer posted a series of photos to Twitter depicting the vandalism carried out by Antifa, along with a video showing the act. Here is the video:https://twitter.com/FordFischer/status/1026255134886514689?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1026255134886514689&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Famericanmilitarynews.com%2F2018%2F08%2Fvideo-antifa-smashes-us-marines-recruiting-office-during-protest%2F

    The overhead highway sign read, ‘Prevent A Tragedy, Buckle Up’, which makes for succinct, and apparently sound advice for you and your family as you motor along at a mile a minute, or most times faster; but, these same well-conceived words of caution could also be an immediate warning of greater importance for the sake of our family of fellow Americans. Prevent a tragedy, keep the House of Representatives with a Republican majority, and the same goes for the US Senate.

Revolution won’t break out in Oregon because ‘Resistance’ Leader Barack Hussein Obama is not ready to step out of the closet—yet.

    American Spectator ^ | July 12, 2018 | Crosby Kemper III, Rex Sinquefield
    Mindful of Voltaire’s dictum (“To hold a pen is to be at war”), we take up the pen against five enduring myths about the Russian Revolution and the advent of socialism. The five myths are long-standing pillars of falsehood — used to curtail liberty, justify past atrocities, and (in the name of “progress”) lead free people into servitude. Calling themselves “progressives,” many people today readily accept most or all of these myths as the truth. Filled with socialist yearnings, they have become a new force to be reckoned with in American politics. Myth #1 — The false story of a...

    Americans celebrated their independence for the 242nd time this week. The annual celebration on the 4th of July is often accompanied by national pride, remembrance of the Founding Fathers and talk of individual liberty. But what really motivated the patriots of the late 1700’s to take the monumental risk of going to war with the British Empire? If you grew up in the US public school system like I did, you were likely taught only a miniscule portion of the truth. Young kids are taught that the reason for the war was the 1765 Stamp Act that was imposed on...

    Subject: INDEPENDENCE DAY! -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA! Remember & Enjoy this 4th of July Weekend - Some History Reminders Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Five signers were captured by the British as traitors and were tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. What...

    Armenia has been in the grips of a mass public protest movement since early April, when opposition leader and member of parliament Nikol Pashinyan launched street demonstrations and strikes in cities all over the country against former president Serzh Sargsyan’s attempt to be named the next prime minister. But after Sargsyan stepped aside, the acting prime minister, Karen Karapetyan (a former chief executive of Gazprom’s fully owned Armenian subsidiary, who has long surrounded himself with support from Russian oligarchs), refused to accept the conditions of a peaceful transition of power to the opposition. To reinforce these counterrevolutionary measures, Samvel Karapetyan...

    Christian Post ^ | 06/30/2018 | By Wallace Henley
    As the United States readies to celebrate its independence on July 4, a thorny question arises: Does the Bible really grant nations—especially those once labeled "Christian"—the right of revolution, or do the Scriptures forbid it?Romans 13, now much in focus because of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' appeal to the passage (affirmed by White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders) to support current federal immigration policy and practice, would seem, according to some interpreters, to demand unquestioning submission to "authority."As already noted in the Christian Post, this passage has been too often used as the proof-text for all kinds of tyrannies. Yet its...

    The Left has declared full-blown war against the USA and are now pushing for physical assaults on those who support their president and the values of America as a nation. With that, we can expect, not only civil unrest, but murders and assassinations by those who are mentally unstable and see this as their green light to finally change things themselves. It should be crystal clear to every freedom loving American by now that the United States has been under an anti-American dictatorship for years. We see it in the form of the opposition to the election of Donald Trump...

    With the sestercentennial of June 1768 passing by, I have few days to devote to the Battle of Bunker Hill. But here’s Charles E. Frye’s map of that battle, completed in 2011 and available through Wikipedia. It’s unusual in positioning American army units on the Charlestown peninsula. Frye is an army-trained cartographer. In this interview, Frye talked about how he came to make that map: My wife suggested I help my oldest son with his 5th grade history project and that we could research to find out where [our ancestor] Isaac [Frye] was on the battlefield. Reading about the battle...

    “Don’t shoot until you see the whites of their eyes!” commanded Colonel William Prescott, repeating the order of General Israel Putnam, June 17, 1775. Colonel William Prescott’s men were in the center redoubt located on Breed’s Hill, adjacent Bunker Hill, guarding the north entrance to Boston Harbor. Samuel Swett wrote in his “History of Bunker Hill” that as the 2,300 British soldiers advanced: “The American marksmen are with difficulty restrained from firing. Putnam rode through the line, and ordered that no one should fire till they arrived within eight rods. … Powder was scarce and must not be wasted. They...
