Christianity in class

The Constitution is not dead

The debate on Christianity in class has reached the ultimate irony. Those who object to it, forget one thing: you cannot keep Christianity out of class and still stay historically accurate. Don’t the opponents know that? Or do they?

Jihad: Obama a recruiter?

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast

By now everyone knows: as many as 300 Americans are, as the Constitution would put it, “levying war against the United States.” The Arabic, or at least Muslim, word is jihad. The Latinate word, and the Constitutional word, is treason. Now we must ask why. Why should so many young men go to the Middle East to wage jihad, against the United States or any other country? That question might have as many answers as the countries they come from. But the American answer is all too clear.

Oathbreakers

The Constitution is not dead

Our Constitution is clear about what the federal government can and cannot do. Article 1, Section 8i, specifically defines the enumerated powers of the federal government. The rest of the Constitution was designed to keep tight reins on government and to lay out with great specificity what the powers are of each branch of government; how our representatives are to be elected; their qualifications; and a whole range of other operating procedures within our government. Our Founders did this because they understood the propensity of all governments and the people that run them to become power-crazed resulting in the continuous degeneration of the liberties of their citizens. They also had the foresight to include 10 amendments to the Constitution that protected the rights of our citizens that they deemed extraordinarily important, and which our government was to both protect and not infringe upon; hence we call these amendments our Bill of Rights.

Media & Dems: evil consortium

James Risen writes for this paper. He told them what he thinks, and it is not pretty.

During the past 5 or more decades we have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of Progressivism.  The degradation of our society and our country, which began slowly and stealthily, has gone into overdrive with such torrents of speed it’s nearly impossible to track.

IRS scandal: e-mails do exist

The IRS scandal made the news again yesterday. Now the IRS admits the “missing” e-mails still exist, and Lois Lerner did not lose them forever as she said. But the IRS now makes another excuse for not giving those e-mails to a judge. And as ever, no one looks at the worst part of the IRS scandal: whether any branch of government can investigate itself.

Why I shake America awake

The Reichstag Fire. That kind of provocation is coming to America.

 

The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.

– Vladimir Lenin

We have found, again, in the center of Ferguson, Missouri, that provocateurs have been sent in to stir up domestic insurrection.

America’s bloodless coup

This man knew how to lead a coup d'état.

The American Patriot in 2014 is a frustrated human being. Many have been sounding the alarm that our country is being torn asunder by the incompetent, the illegitimate, the opportunist, and the globalist. While all of this is true, the overriding message may be substantially worse. Our country isn’t being torn asunder; it is being taken over. Let me rephrase: it’s already been taken over.

Egomaniac and Ignoramus

The Obama birth certificate. Why is this still accepted as valid?

Egomaniac:  one who has an obsessive preoccupation with one’s self, i.e., one who is intolerably self-centered.

Ignoramus:  a person who does not know much: an ignorant or stupid person.

Several weeks ago Bill O’Reilly revisited the issue of Obama’s birth certificate during the viewer letter segment of his cable news program on Fox.

Militarized police go too far

Militarized police vehicle. This kind of display could show the police are soldiers under the Third Amendment.

The events of the last eight days in Ferguson, Missouri have called the country’s attention to a disturbing trend. America now has the most militarized police it has ever had. Like all ideas that threaten liberty, militarized police began innocently enough. But the public and the media are at least paying attention. So, one hopes, are enough Representatives and Senators

Ferguson: hope for peace?

Riots and looting broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, again last night. But then a dozen people did something that offers hope. When the police dared not interfere, they protected the stores that had come under attack. That shows the people in the community want peace, not the race war someone is trying to provoke.
