    Eastern Michigan University ^ | April 18, 2018 | Jack Minzey
    A few days ago, Jack Minzey, sent what was to be the final chapter in the long line of books and treatises which he had written. Jack went to be with the Lord, on Sunday, 8 April 2018. 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:

    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.

    “The Right has all the guns, and the Left can't figure out which bathroom to use?” For all of those concerned that the 2nd American Revolution is about to break out at tomorrow’s Patriot Prayer/Antifa/ rally in Portland, Oregon: Don’t worry. Revolution won’t break out in Oregon because ‘Resistance’ Leader Barack Hussein Obama is not ready to step out of the closet—yet.

    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...

    After months of circling President Donald Trump during NFL depositions and discovery, Colin Kaepernick’s lawyers are expected to force Trump directly into the ongoing legal battle between the quarterback and league. Kaepernick’s legal team is expected to seek federal subpoenas in the coming weeks to compel testimony from Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other officials familiar with the president’s agenda on protesting NFL players, sources with knowledge of the quarterback’s collusion case against the NFL told Yahoo Sports.

    { SNIP } Whether due more to a loss of nerve than bad planning, the mobs dissipated and the Bolshevik leaders were arrested. With evidence that they were being lavishly financed by Russia’s wartime enemy Germany, the provisional government prepared to dispatch the traitorous radicals. “Now they are going to shoot us,” Lenin warned his co-conspirator Leon Trotsky before shaving his beard and fleeing to Finland. He would not be seen again in public until the Bolsheviks staged a second coup attempt nearly four months later, this time resulting in the cataclysmic October Revolution, which, according to Sean McMeekin’s estimates,...

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” former Obama administration green jobs czar and network contributor Van Jones blamed the ”moral collapse inside of our political system” for Roseanne Barr’s derogatory tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. Jones said, “Some things apparently are more important than money, even to a big corporation like ABC-Disney, and that is very heartening because we’ve been in a moral freefall for at least three years. To my point of view, one of the great things is — it is, in fact, important that red-state America be better represented in the media. But they can have a...

    Early one morning in late June 1778, an unknown passerby tossed a package of documents that clanged against the gate at Benjamin Franklin’s home in Passy, France.[1]  In it was a letter addressed to Franklin dated June 16, 1778 from one “Charles de Weissenstein,” writing from Brussels.  In addition to the letter, the package contained two other documents, titled Project for Allaying the Present Ferments in North America and An Outline of the Future Government in America.  The flurry of activity that followed provides a unique window into the state of both American and British thinking on the Revolution at the...

    Nearly two years ago, the British people voted for Brexit. They rejected the arguments of the political, business, academic and media establishment, which were united in their support for the European Union and its elitist agenda that favors the rich. Instead, voters chose populism, voting for Britain to become a self-governing, independent nation outside the EU. You can say they were wrong; you can lament their decision. But you can’t deny the facts of what happened. But guess what? Denying the facts is exactly what the elitists are trying to do. Right now, the political debate in the United Kingdom...

    What is the connection between personal freedom and rising from the dead? When America was in its infancy and struggling to find a culture and frustrated at governance from Great Britain, the word most frequently uttered in speeches and pamphlets and editorials was not "safety" or "taxes" or "peace"; it was "freedom." Two acts of Parliament assaulted freedom and broke the bonds with the mother country irreparably. The first was the Stamp Act, which was enforced by British soldiers, who used general warrants issued by a secret court in London to rummage through the personal possessions of any colonists they...
