Julia Howe rose at the first light of day one morning in 1861 to pen the words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, seeing the shape of patriotism without form and grace, and by her gift of poetry and pentameter she gave the soldiers’ a picture of a more directed and noble sentiment. After a half million lives were offered up to abolish the curse of slavery now 300 million Americans are on the brink of slavery once again.Read more ›

Today, there are: 1,500 newspapers, 1,100 magazines, 9,000 radio stations, 2,400 publishers.
All of these are owned and operated by only 6 corporations. Often, we see people who are put in front of our faces as being just and upright. However, when you pull the curtain back, you find that the opposite is true.
If we ignore what we know due to political correctness, how will it ever be possible to do what needs to be done? If we refuse to name something, does that mean it isn’t what it claims to be? There are none so blind as those who will not see, and when the blind follow the blind they both end up in the ditch.Read more ›
Enemies of Israel want the world to think Israel has no right to exist. Yet as you will see in this Prager University video, there are few countries in the world with a legal and historical foundation as solid as that which led to the rebirth of Israel in 1948.

In our Founding Father’s day, the practice of virtue was a crown of honor, not a bigot’s badge of shame. Just look what we as a nation have become today!

It’s hard to be a conservative when there’s little left to conserve. The increasing pace of America’s progression from free markets to a command economy has reached such a pace and become so obvious that way back in 2009, the Russian Prime Minister used his spotlight time at the World Economic Forum to warn America not to follow the socialist path. The Russian newspaper Pravda, once the leading communist voice on earth published an article entitled, “American capitalism gone with a whimper.”Read more ›
I am grateful that the History Channel is bringing up the topic of our Founders, but I wonder – how accurate is it? For instance, the show inaccurately portrays Samuel Adams as a poor, bar-hopping, 30-year-old on probation. When in truth he inherited money and a business from his father, had a wife and children, was a political leader in Boston, had an abiding Christian faith, and was 43 years old when the events occurred. There is no evidence to support the “dramatic” depiction of Samuel Adams as a bar crawling, womanizing, street thug on probation.Read more ›
