Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American. — Tench Coxe, 1788, Pennsylvania delegate to the Continental Congress

What Are You: Rebel, Revolutionary or Slave?

John W. Whitehead

Those tempted to write off the standoff at the Bundy Ranch as little more than a show of force by militia-minded citizens would do well to reconsider their easy dismissal of this brewing rebellion. This goes far beyond concerns about grazing rights or the tension between the state and the federal government.

Alice in Wonderland in Nevada

Michael Peroutka

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice (remember Alice in Wonderland), “whether you can make words mean different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “who is to be master – that is all.” Perhaps Alice can give us some insight into what the government is doing right now in Bunkerville, Nevada.

The Turtle Rebellion

JD Longstreet

Militias are reforming and retraining. Citizens are cleaning their guns and counting rounds of ammunition for them. Why? The government's heavy-handed way of dealing with a Nevada rancher whose cattle are being seized by the federal government at the point of a federal gun. Are we looking at another Ruby Ridge or yet another Waco? I certainly hope not. But the truth is, America cannot continue as the police state she has become.

Bringing Balance to the Endangered Species Act

Rick Manning

The positive and negative impacts of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) will be examined by a special working group within the House Resources Committee. The committee should explore how the broadest possible application of the ESA has impacted communities, private property rights and in some cases has actually harmed the species recovery itself.

Rep. Noem Asks Important Questions About Endangered Species.

Bob Ellis

A few weeks ago, Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) asked some important questions about the Endangered Species Act in the Natural Resources Committee. Noem has offered an amendment which would help combat the pine beetle infestation in the Black Hills, and plans to designate the black-backed woodpecker as threatened or endangered would hinder these efforts.

EPA Smacked: The Good Guys Win One

Bob Ellis

Great news! In this day and age when the anti-American Leftists win too many battles over their fellow American's freedom, the good guys finally won one yesterday in the U.S. Supreme Court. Chantell and Michael Sackett, who bought some land and were beginning to build their dreamhouse only to have the EPA shut them down, have finally received justice from the Supreme Court in a unanimous decision against the EPA's tyranny.

Hiding Another Land Grab in the Transportation Bill

Rebekah Rast

The U.S. Senate has approved of a $109 billion bill that provides two years of funding for transportation and transit projects around the country. Included in that is $1.4 billion in funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), which helps purchase and lock off land across the country. Evidently the line of thinking within the Senate is more U.S. lands are in need of being purchased and protected by the federal government.

Killing Owls to Save Owls: You Can’t Make This Up

Rebekah Rast

A 1-pound bird attributed to the demise of the logging industry some 20 years ago in the northwest part of the country is back in the news. The northern spotted owl is still struggling to survive, and the latest plan by President Obama is to shoot barred owls, a rival bird that has dominated its smaller counterpart. As with all things that come from the loony world of the Left, you just can't make this stuff up.

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
