If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. — Jesus, John 15:18-20

Tax Cronyism in the States

Bob Ellis

The American Legislative Exchange Council has released a report on tax cronyism, and it's going on to some degree in pretty much every state. Tax cronyism is public policy designed to benefit certain industries or individuals instead of society in general. And it costs us all.

ObamaCare, Intended and Unintended Consequences

Robert Romano

The Halbig v. Burwell decision found that Obamacare exchange subsidies cannot be given in states that decided to not set up their own exchanges under an IRS regulation. When the D.C. Circuit Court rules on this issue in full, and the Supreme Court gets a crack at it, it is not up to judges to allow an agency to rewrite a law to suit its implementation, or to rewrite it themselves.

The Importance of History

Michael Peroutka

In the last few years, the idea of learning about our freedom documents has fallen out of favor in our government schools and perhaps has been neglected in our families, our churches, and our communities as well. Regrettably, more and more, as Americans, we know less and less about where we come from.

ObamaCare

Lawless President, Lawless Congress, Lawless Courts

Bob Ellis

Lawlessness has become completely rampant in the United States, and it was never more obvious than in yesterday's divided rulings on ObamaCare. Our executive, legislative and judicial branches are all complicit in lawless behavior to subvert our constitution, or laws...and with them, our freedom.

The Wilderness Wanderings

David Whitney

It gives me hope that vast sections of our land hate what is being done to America. It gives great encouragement to see that vast stretches of our land do not embrace the socialist destruction of our republic; and many who agree with Ronald Reagan when he said, “Government is not the answer to the problem, it is the problem.”

What is America’s Only Hope?

David Pepe

What more does one have to read to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we (America) are at the end nationally and globally. When the world’s only nation - at present - which was founded on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, has rejected and turned their back on Almighty God and His moral absolutes, what hope is there – not just for the U.S. but for the world?

A Vision of Achievement for America

Bob Ellis

What can I really add to this excellent Afterburner from Bill Whittle?  The current generation(s) of Americans have no vision of excellence and achievement for us as a people.

A List of Obama Lawlessness

Bob Ellis

I was just made aware today that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has compiled a list of 76 examples of lawless behavior by President Barack Obama. Not all of them rise to the level of an impeachable offense, but more than a few could easily form a list of justifications to impeach this lawless imperial president.

Chief Justice Roberts on ObamaCare: What Will He Do?

Robert Romano

With the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals issuing contradictory rulings on the question of whether Obamacare exchange subsidies can be given in states that decided to not set up their own exchanges under an IRS regulation, it appears all but inevitable that the case will ultimately wind up in the Supreme Court.

Out of the Closet: Anti-Capitalist Environmentalists

Bob Ellis

Though the Marxist roots and motivations of the global warming crowd was evident a long time ago, it still doesn't hurt to see fresh evidence that global warming hysteria is far more about promoting Marxism and far less about stopping an unscientific hoax of a "crisis." As the Daily Caller reports, 130 environmentalist groups have come all the way out of the closet to call for an end to capitalism.

Environmentalist Electric Car Sabotage

Tom Toth

Tesla has created a top-end electric car for the every-man. This could mark the beginning of the commonly used exhaust-free, electric automobile. What a glorious achievement for the environmentalist left! … Right? Well, not quite.

Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate Commands the Interstate

Bob Ellis

I just traveled back and forth across most of South Dakota in the past four days, from Rapid City to Sioux Falls, then down to Sioux City and beyond. As I traveled along I noticed that Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate had a lot of signs up along the I-90 and I-29 corridors. I'd have to say there were about a half-dozen going each way along I-90 running east-west, and two or three at least each way going north-south along I-29.

Freedom Index: How Does Your Rep Measure Up?

Bob Ellis

A friend reminded me yesterday that the latest Freedom Index is out. You can see it in both pdf and an online version. The Freedom Index "rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements. "

The ‘Mainstream’ Media: Terrorist Propaganda Organs

Victor Sharpe

Terrorism needs its poison spewed to as wide a viewing audience as possible. The New York Times, or the Guardian in London, have long been propaganda organs for terrorist organizations, wittingly or unwittingly. The result is the same. The victim suffers and the victimizer is feted.

Hamas Using Human Shields for Terrorist Attacks

Bob Ellis

It doesn't get a whole lot easier to see the difference between good and evil than in the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East...that is, unless you are a deluded Leftist who. like a moth to a flame, is naturally drawn to evil in the first place. Islamic Israel-hating extremists have recently launched a fresh attack against Israel, and as they have done so many times, they are fighting dirty.

Impeachment: Why Should We Allow…?

Bob Ellis

Democrats have, predictably, pooh-poohed the idea of impeaching our lawless president Barack Obama. We expect that. But more than a few "Republicans" also don't want to impeach President Obama.

Mike Rounds Tries to Fix His Big Mistake

Bob Ellis

Former Governor and now U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Rounds screwed up in 2010, and how he's busy trying to put a bandaid on his mistake. The killer of Debbie Martines and her unborn child had been locked away without possibility of parole. Now, thanks to Mike Rounds, Debbie Martines' family must endure parole hearings every eight months to keep him locked up.

Authority from the Governed–Nowhere Else!

David Whitney

All authority comes from the individuals and is provided to their representatives in government through an expressed powers document called a constitution. The understanding that all authority for government actions comes from the people individually is the fourth most important principle of freedom and the cornerstone of true freedom.

Madison_Constitution_1a

Why Did We Write it in the First Place?

Dr. Robert R. Owens

Besides regulating the division of authority, constitutions written to limit government must contain substantive rules. They need to establish general principles which will govern the specific acts of the legislature. Therefore, the essence of a constitution involves not only a hierarchy of power and authority; it also establishes a hierarchy of laws.

The Toughest and Most Important Fight

Steve Deace

Conservatives are unwilling to confront the most potent weapon the Left uses against us over and over again. A weapon they have put in place so they could unravel the intent and foundation of our constitutional republic without risking the scrutiny of the voters. This way they could impose “pretend laws” on a defenseless citizenry that would never see the light of the day if they had to pass lawfully. I’m referring to judicial supremacy,

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
