He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man. We must not conclude merely upon a man’s haranguing upon liberty, and using the charming sound, that he is fit to be trusted with the liberties of his country. — Samuel Adams

‘Houston, we’ve had a problem’

William J. Federer

"Houston, we've had a problem" were the words sent from Apollo 13, which was launched for the moon APRIL 11, 1970. Mission control identified that an oxygen tank had exploded, irreparably damaging the craft. Special prayer services were held at the Chicago Board of Trade, at St. Peter’s Basilica by the Pope, at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and reported in The New York Times. In April of 1970, President Richard Nixon had the nation observe a Day of Prayer for Apollo 13 astronauts. Even the U.S. Senate adopted a resolution urging prayer.

Thoughts on the Coming Election

Dr. Robert R. Owens

The courts have been packed, the banks have been bought off, and the unions use legally mandated dues to support candidates and policies their unwilling members don’t want. Check and check-mate. The situation has become so dire and the hour so late that it appears the only line of defense we have left between the USA and the USSA is a House of Representatives controlled by Progressive Republicans and the hope of a Senate controlled by the same crowd. The old bulls talk conservative to get elected, then join hands across the aisles in a marriage of despotism with deceit.

Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?

Not the Pastor America Needs, but the Pastor We Deserve

Steve Deace

From the outside, Joel Osteen lives a life the world covets. There’s just one problem with that. I can’t think of a single truly great figure in the 2,000-year history of Christianity who didn’t pay some kind of worldly price for defending the faith—beginning with Christ himself at the Cross. On the other hand, it seems as if the world is paying Osteen quite handsomely for the self-esteem gospel according to Joel.

Cruz: More RINOs Will Get Hillary Elected

Bob Ellis

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has highlighted the insanity of once more in 2016 allowing the liberal RINO establishment to push candidates on us who have proven they will betray Republican (and American) principles. You know, of course, that Albert Einstein is credited with stating that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

"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
