The Hand of providence has been so conspicuous in all this, that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations. — George Washington, letter to Thomas Nelson August 20, 1778

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.

Stewardship of the Republic

Dale Pflug

Whenever the health of the American republic is in serious decline, who will take action? You might ask, “What republic?” It is a rare occasion today when anyone refers to our nation as a republic. Our President, governors, senators/congressmen, government bureaucrats, teachers/professors in our schools and institutes of higher learning, the printed and electronic media and the average Joe on the street all “think” of us as a democracy.

Republican Hypocrites and Party Idolators

Bob Ellis

It looks like I'm far from the only one who is pretty disgusted with Election 2014. Erick Erickson at RedState asks why we should bother supporting Republicans ths year? And this situation has led me to ask myself whether I want to be a hypocrite and an idolator.

Pamela Geller Maligned Over Counter-Jihad Ads

Gina Miller

The new American Freedom Defense Initiative ad campaign consists of simple, common-sense declarations of the truth of what we face with hell-born Muslim conquest around the world. However, the deluded adherents to “political correctness” among us refuse to tell the truth about Islamic jihad, and instead, attack those of us who do.

There is No ‘Me’ in ‘WE the People’

A.J. Castellitto

A dark cloud is looming overhead as the economic storm continues to grow. In the midst of it all, mindless drones demand their right to amnesty, marriage and abortion as the ground under their feet becomes ripe for seizure and confiscation.

The Ten Commandments

David Whitney

Today many persons have a great misunderstanding in thinking that if they follow Christianity they don’t have liberty. That is far from the truth. In fact, Christianity when followed correctly brings liberty – not bondage.

"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
