It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles. — Patrick Henry

Fundamentally Transforming America, One Community at at Time

Robert Romano

Let's just be blunt. If Congressional Republicans do not defund the imminent rulemaking, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing," by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the upcoming continuing resolution, they are utterly insane.

What About the Judicial Filibuster?

Robert Romano

24 new federal judges by Christmas? That’s what outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) wants in the lame duck session of Congress. Faced with an incoming Republican majority, Barack Obama and Harry Reid want to stack the judiciary in yet another egregious power grab.

McConnell Pledges to Use Power of the Purse

Robert Romano

“It takes 60 votes to do a lot of things in the Senate, but there are some things we can do with 51 votes," said Senator Mitch McConnell. If he is truly determined to use the power of the purse, McConnell should get busy in the December funding bill — before the 2016 presidential election cycle consumes the congressional cycle. Take as many bites at the apple as possible.

McConnell Promises to Go After ObamaCare

Robert Romano

In a private meeting with Americans for Limited Government (ALG) staff, senior aides to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) promised that should Republicans reclaim a majority in the Senate on Tuesday, they would use the budget reconciliation process to go after Obamacare.

Republicans Shouldn’t Acquiesce to Obama

Robert Romano

The midterm elections are just a week away, and with most predicting a Republican sweep on November 4, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy is setting his sights on the 2015 governing agenda. But before a new Congress is sworn in, the government's funding for FY 2015 is due to run out on December 11, and Politico's Jake Sherman reports "[McCarthy] would like to use the lame-duck session to pass a long-term government-funding bill, so Washington can begin focusing on big-picture legislating, instead of just trying to keep government's doors open."

On Course to Never Pay Off National Debt

Robert Romano

We’re more likely to default on our national debt than to ever pay it off. The national debt has increased every single year since 1958 to its current level. Who really believes that trend will be reversed?

Will Republicans Have a Rout in the Senate?

Robert Romano

This is easily one of the most favorable political environments for Republican congressional prospects in quite a long time, particularly on the Senate side of the equation. Yet, if the polls are any indication, at the moment, the landscape appears more mixed.

Why Isn’t Our Govt Protecting Americans from Ebola?

Robert Romano

One of the few constitutionally enumerated responsibilities of the federal government is to secure the nation’s borders and ports of entry, and to provide consistent rules for entering the country, as in the aforementioned clause of Article I, Section 8. The reason for such safeguards is obvious.

Watch Out for the Fall Lame Duck Budget

Robert Romano

Congressional Democrats want to kick the can into the post-election, lame duck period, so they can use another anticipated shutdown to their advantage to achieve their budget priorities without having to worry about voter backlash. Yet, Congressional Republicans would be foolish to accept such a deal. But if House Republicans fear a shutdown hurting their chances in November, expect them to get rolled in budget negotiations.

DOJ Admits: Missing IRS Emails Were Backed Up

Robert Romano

Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search.

Ferguson: Good Lessons Available for the Taking

Rick Manning

In an unheard appeal for calm in the wake of a Grand Jury’s decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in what was determined to be a justifiable shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., President Barack Obama urged that we learn lessons from the tragedy. But what lessons will be learned?

Some True Thanksgiving

Bob Ellis

As Godless liberalism has gained ascendancy in America and our heritage has been whitewashed, many Americans don't know some important facts about our nation's Christian history. Ben Shapiro at the Revolting Truth shares some important history about Thanksgiving--so important, there wouldn't have BEEN a first Thanksgiving without these truths.

Liberty Versus Comfort

Ken Connor

For decades, liberal society has been obsessed with multiculturalism and tolerance. Generations of children have been raised to believe that it's good to accept everyone, celebrate differences, avoid value judgments, and affirm "authenticity" in all its forms. "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll die defending your right to say it" has been the credo of liberal societies the world over. In recent years, however, the notion of what it means to be "tolerant" has changed radically. Now, instead of merely tolerating my neighbor's differences, I must refrain from saying, doing, or even thinking anything that threatens my neighbor's ideology or makes him/her feel "uncomfortable."

A Truly Thankful Remnant

David Pepe

In light of our nation's godlessness, abounding moral relativistic thinking and secularism there is still a remnant throughout this nation today that still chooses to follow Almighty God and knows His Son as their personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures so teach. They are thankful daily for all that Almighty God has provided for them and they are found throughout the social classes today.

Ferguson: Seeking Justice in an Immoral World

Bob Ellis

The news has now hit the streets that the grand jury in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of "gentle giant" Michael Brown has examined the evidence, and rejected five offered charges against Officer Darren Wilson. So the logical response of the Left is to burn the city of Ferguson to the ground. That's what happens in a nation whose god is its belly.

"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
