    If you’re like me, you’re pretty sick of the biased, left-leaning, mainstream media which goes way out of its way to paint a very negative picture of a world that hates and despises the United States for everything we are. Our global image is said to be that of a nation driven by greed and power. It is reported that the world perceives us as a nation who exploits the people and the resources of the world purely for selfish, greedy desires. We are told that the world’s citizens suffer under the power and might of the United States military...

    Once upon a time, not too awfully long ago, America was known as the ‘shining city on the hill.’ America, the most radical experiment in the history of the world, was the only nation to which people oppressed and repressed by old world systems of social classes and castes could be free of the stifling bindings engendered by those man created constraints. She was a Judao-Christian nation where God of the bible, and not an elite ruling class, was sovereign over all. America was the land of hope, promise and opportunity, where not only all men were equal before God’s...

    No nationalists on Jack's 'shining hill' -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: July 19, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 Creators Syndicate, Inc. "A struggle is underway for the soul of the Republican Party, between a minority of protectionist xenophobes and those who are pro-trade and pro-immigration." Thus does Jack Kemp begin a column in which he jettisons the black conservative running for Congress in North Carolina whom he earlier endorsed. Kemp accuses Vernon Robinson of "running a very negative and aggressive anti-immigration campaign ... contrary to the core values of the party of Lincoln." Jack is right about that struggle for the soul...

    "Ninety-five percent of the population was against the war in Iraq," observed my professor at our usual lunch spot near the University of Buenos Aires Department of Social Science, "and I, of course, am among that ninety-five percent." Of course. For a member of the Western intelligentsia to support the United States — let alone George W. Bush — on any element of foreign policy would be less likely than an Ivy League faculty deciding not to discriminate against conservative job applicants for the sake of "diversity."  Indeed, far beyond the opposition to the Iraqi liberation, our supposed allies and...

    Great shining city.   There are many cities, some are glorious, and some are not.  But there is one city, which have hope and shines with bright light of love.  That shining city is United States of America.  On that hill, in that city, many disagree, many are in sorrow, many are in pain, but there is always a hope.  Hope and dignity. Freedom and prosperity.  Victory and glory, as bright light of freedom shines upon it.  God has blessed that city, gave all the fruits of love and freedom.  It started not long ago, but like a thunder,...
