To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. — Richard Henry Lee, 1788, Signer of the Declaration of Independence

The Duty to Defend Life

David Whitney

When you study the history of the world, some of the most perilous times for any people are when a regime change takes place. I believe we are approaching, if we are not already into, a major regime change; not just in our land but around the world.


Sydney Hostage Tragedy and Its American Cousin

Jake MacAulay

Just a few days ago, a dangerous and deadly hostage ordeal unfolded in Sydney, Australia. According to news reports the Muslim man who perpetrated the event is a self proclaimed minister of the Islamic state. This tragedy in Australia got me to thinking about another tragedy – another hostage situation much closer to home.


Ignorance is No Excuse…Unless You’re a Cop

John W. Whitehead

With Orwellian irony, the U.S. Supreme Court chose December 15, National Bill of Rights Day to deliver its crushing blow to the Fourth Amendment. Although the courts have historically held that ignorance of the law is not an excuse for breaking the law, in its 8-1 ruling inHeien v. State of North Carolina, the Supreme Court gave police in America one more ready excuse to routinely violate the laws of the land, this time under the guise of ignorance.


Women Have a Role to Play in Ending Rape

Erica Wanis

I spent much of my early twenties participating in American party culture, and I'm lucky I made it through those years relatively unscathed. Looking back, I made a lot of foolish decisions. I put myself in a lot of compromising situations that could have easily taken a dark turn. What I have to say in the following paragraphs, then, does not come from a place of ignorance or unsympathetic idealism.


Lying Leibowitz and His Race-Baiting Ways

A.J. Castellitto

Pseudo-comedian/political analyst Jon 'Stewart' Leibowitz is at it again! He continues to play the role of liberal activist and righteous avenger. When you're aiming for cheap laughs and political points, any tragedy will do!


How’s That Godlessness Working for You, America?

Bradlee Dean

In America, crime is encouraged, contrary to God’s judgments. The criminal is allotted three crimes to be committed before America’s justice system deals with him. You know, three strikes and you are out.

Barbarians Come Home to Roost

Bob Ellis

As usual, Bill Whittle's Firewall cuts to the bone of the bull. This time, he discusses the "new barbarians" of the Let, namely Michael Brown, Lena Dunham, Tawana Brawley, Patricia Williams, Al Sharpton, the lawless looters of well as President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. In his summation, this has to be one of the best descriptions of liberalism I have ever heard.


I Can’t Breathe

Dave Daubenmire

Eric Garner was not strangled. In fact, the coroner did not list suffocation as the cause of death. You cannot scream when you cannot breathe. So on Monday night LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers showed up for pre-game warm-ups against Brooklyn wearing a shirt that read I CAN’T BREATHE!!


Murder v. Manslaughter

David Whitney

I don’t intend to solve the problem regarding the slaying of Michael Brown, but rather take a close look at the crucial issue involved, which is the Sixth Commandment. I hope to help us understand the nature of what constitutes murder in contrast to manslaughter or even justifiable homicide.


Government-Mandated Mind-Reading

Michael Peroutka

Can you read my mind? Well the federal government is now saying that it can read my mind – and your mind. And it is ready to punish you for your thoughts. Does that sound like Nazi Germany to you? Me too.

I Am No Longer a Republican

J. Matt Barber

I am no longer a Republican. John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and their Democrat-lite, RINO Republican establishment have seen to that. They have betrayed their own constituents. They have actively turned against the American people – the very voters who granted them power to do good.


Whom do you fear? God or man?

Bradlee Dean

Crisis after crisis are taking place, and many of them are contrived to bring about an unlawful change. These crises are in many cases manufactured to produce fear for the purpose of bringing you to your knees and forcing you to submit to their creators’ ungodly plans. This is the method of dictatorships.

Why Nativity Scenes Matter in the Public Square

Doug Carter

When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he explained that our freedoms come from God. “All men are created equal,” he says, and “they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” A nativity display on government property reminds us that all humans have unalienable rights- rights which cannot legitimately be taken away- because these rights come from God.

Bush Paved Way for Obama Executive Abuse

Robert Romano

To save American car companies in 2008, then-President George W. Bush opted to use $17 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), which had been enacted to extend loans to financial institutions caught in the mortgage backed securities meltdown. There was nothing in the law that had allowed the bailout funds to be used for auto manufacturers. The Administration just made it up.

Congress Allows Obama to Slap Them With Cuba

Rick Manning

It only took a couple of days for the ink to dry on Congress' decision to fund the Obama administration's objectives for the rest of the year before it came back to bite them. The choice to fund all of the government for the next nine months, besides the Department of Homeland Security, means that Congress has little recourse to rein in Obama's Cuban bailout.


"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
