In light of the unambiguous and unbroken history of more than 200 years, there can be no doubt that the practice of opening legislative sessions with prayer has become part of the fabric of our society. To invoke Divine guidance on a public body entrusted with making the laws is not, in these circumstances, an “establishment” of religion or a step toward establishment; it is simply a tolerable acknowledgment of beliefs widely held among the people of this country. — Marsh v. Chambers, July 5, 1983, http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0463_0783_ZO.html

Not Even Kings (or Presidents) Are Above the Law

Bob Ellis

Did you know that the Old Testament kings in Israel were not a law unto themselves? That they were under the authority of a law higher than themselves? Did you know that presidents today are under a higher law? Why do we allow some to behave as if they were a law unto themselves?

Law vs Anti-Law

Dr. Robert R. Owens

America was founded upon the principles of Natural Law. The Progressives led us into the realms of Legal Positivism. The vast government apparatus they have constructed has progressed into a dystopian fantasy land beyond law where faceless bureaucrats in an alphabet soup of departments create regulations with the force of law from thin air. Such is the journey from tyranny to tyranny in ten generations. Such is the journey from law to anti-law.

Multiculturalism: Good or Bad for America?

Michael Peroutka

Is multiculturalism a good thing or a bad thing for our American society? You might not realize it, but this is a very important question. This agenda of multiculturalism is based on the notion that we are a more stable, prosperous society because we embrace diversity, toleration and acceptance of anything and everything. But is this true?

Five Lessons from the Whiskey Rebellion

David John Marotta

The earliest and first U.S. tax-inspired revolt was the 1791 Whiskey Rebellion. The federal government, just two years old, was $54 million in debt from the American Revolution. Another $25 million was owed by the states. Combined, the debt was the equivalent of $1.975 trillion in today's dollars.

FDR’s Second Bill of Rights

Michael Peroutka

Back in January, 1944, just four years before Walt Kelly's Pogo first appeared, President Franklin Roosevelt, in his annual address to Congress, set the nation on a path that would destroy America as the founders envisioned it. The plan he declared to the nation in that speech was destined, if not designed, to make America its own enemy.

Social Justice: Biblical Principle or Progressive Plank?

Ricki Pepin

Will the real social justice please stand up? How do you find truth within the two very conflicting camps pervading America today on this hot topic? A principle approach comparison of modernism/progressive thinking versus biblical/principled reasoning is in order. Definitions and historical applications will prove to be far more accurate than just parroting some pundit’s opinion.

Straight Talk About An Article V Convention

Publius Huldah

This speech (video) was presented to Campaign For Liberty – Memphis on March 24, 2014. It exposes some of the false claims made by those pushing for the so-called “convention of states”.

You Say You Want a Revolution

Dave Daubenmire

I hear a lot of clamoring about a need for a Second American Revolution. It makes me chuckle. I just can't believe how anesthetized most Americans are…especially the “Christians.” Christians should be the most alert…the most informed…the most prepared…the most cogent…the brightest bulbs in the candelabra.

Constitutional Literacy: Does it Matter?

Ricki Pepin

When Congress is considering any bill, their criteria should not be the latest Gallup poll, your opinion, or their opinion about whether or not this potential legislation is a good or bad idea. Their sole concern should be keeping their oath of office when they pledged to Almighty God that they would protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Turning the Tables on the Left

Bob Ellis

It seems Leon H. Wolf at RedState is about as enthused at the prospects of a "Republican" victory in November as I am. Republicans: would you like to actually accomplish something next year? Would you like to be able to overcome Barack Obama's propaganda? You can, if you are willing to fight.

Crony ‘Capitalism’ Strikes Tesla

Tom Toth

Tesla Motors, the American car maker created in 2003 by “engineers who set out to prove that electric vehicles could be awesome,” has been banned from opening stores in Michigan to advertise and sell its vehicles.

How’s Romans 13 Working, Pastor?

Dave Daubenmire

I guess I don't understand all the hubbub. Why are Houston's pastors objecting to turning over their sermons to the government? Haven't they told all of us to “obey the authorities?” Doesn't Romans 13 demand that we obey un-Godly government?

What if Republicans DO Get Control of Congress?

David Pepe

As the 2014 midterm elections heat up... expect the Left and the Main Stream Media to do whatever it takes to secure a leftist socialist progressive Democratic win and keep its lawless, bulldozer "a" rolling. Nothing will be beneath them as they use any lawless means to accomplishing this goal. These will seek to incite and stir up the rage of the masses of socially, subjective, lawless government dependents, godless women and the majority of African Americans who have been oppressed by white liberals policies for decades.

Honoring the One True God

David Whitney

It is now beyond question that Christianity is under direct assault in the culture war. “The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity to Annise Parker, the city’s first openly daughter of Sodom mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.”

"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
