It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail. The religion and public liberty of a people are intimately connected; their interests are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately; and therefore they rise and fall together. For this reason, it is always observable, that those who are combin’d to destroy the people’s liberties, practice every art to poison their morals. — Samuel Adams

Stemming the Tide of ‘Progress’

Ken Connor

Many people, when they hear talk of the growing "war on Christianity," roll their eyes and dismiss the charges as mere political hyperbole designed to fire up the values voters come election time. While it's true that one's Christian identity is currently not grounds for explicit political or legal persecution, there is a subtler process underway by which Christians are being gradually pushed to the margins of public life.


When You Forget You’re In the Right

Victor Sharpe

For 47 long years since the liberation of biblical Jewish Judea and Samaria from illegal Jordanian occupation - territory the world grotesquely prefers to call the "West Bank" - the beloved Jewish heartland has remained in a political limbo and not been fully or even partially annexed.


The Lost Holy Day

David Whitney

Just a few days ago it was Memorial Day. What a people memorialize and celebrate reveals some significant things about them as a people. It reveals what they value and what they hold as important. It communicates a standard by which other things are measured.

Can Christianity in the West Endure?

Ken Connor

For Christians lucky enough to live in the free West, we have in large part become complacent and apathetic. Our embrace of relativism and our addiction to material things, coupled with our self-obsession, has dulled our sense of the Transcendent and diminished our faith. We take our freedom and our God for granted. What will it take to rekindle the vision of Christian martyrs past?

Our Silence is Deafening

Ken Connor

The recent kidnappings in Nigeria by the Islamic militant group Boka Haram has cast the issue of religious persecution – of Christians in particular – into the spotlight, and begs the question: Why have American Christians been so silent on the subject of religious persecution of their spiritual brethren around the world? It is a question many leaders within the American Christian community are asking, and there appears to be universal consensus that continued silence and inaction on this issue is unacceptable.


The Bad Science of Anthropogenic Global Warming

Rick Manning

"Bad science gone berserk," is how Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman characterized a just released White House report on global warming. The 800 plus page report is just one more act of violence against science perpetrated under the guise of saving the planet from some imagined future ills, with the full intent of scaring the American people into supporting emergency action.

And You Thought It Couldn’t Happen Again!

JD Longstreet

Have they begun stringing barbed wire again? Have they set-up new ovens again? How about those showers, are they getting them operational again? Are they stock-piling Zyklon B gas already? Sadly, many Americans reading the paragraph above have no idea what the heck I'm muttering about. This is important -- because we are seeing the early elements of another Holocaust coming together in Europe today.

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.


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.

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts

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.


"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
