Those nations are doomed to death who bury, in the corruption of criminal desire, the awful sense of an existing God, cast off the consoling hope of immortality, and seek refuge from despair in the dreariness of annihilation. Terrible, irrevocable doom! loudly pronounced, frequently repeated, strongly exemplified in the sacred writings, and fully confirmed by the long record of time. — Gouverneur Morris

Spending Goes Up But the Budget Doesn’t Balance

Rick Manning

The federal government released the good news that revenue collections have reached an all-time high with total receipts of $1.935 trillion from October 1, 2013 to the end of May. Yet, even with this unprecedented flow of cash into the nation’s Treasury, the October-May deficit is an astounding $436 billion with May’s deficit alone totaling almost $130 billion.

Origins of ISIS: Islamic State of Iraq and Syria

Bob Ellis

The Watchman examines the origin and rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) now making disturbing inroads in Iraq. This al Qaeda offshoot that is too radical even for al Qaeda has basically become not just a terrorist organization, but a terrorist army.

Obama’s Nixon White House Tapes

Robert Romano

In 1974, then-special prosecutor Leon Jaworski issued a subpoena for the infamous White House tapes. On one tape, eighteen minutes were missing. Today, the IRS is missing emails that deal with harassment of Tea Party groups. Will congress hold Obama accountable?

Lawless in America

David Whitney

The militia, as our Founders structured it, is not some optional, superfluous element of civil government. Rather it is at the heart and core of the Republic of these united States. Indeed for any State in this Union to fail to maintain and keep a true militia would indicate that State was and is in violation of the Supreme Law of the Land, the U.S. Constitution.

Dept of Homeland Security: America’s Standing Army?

John W. Whitehead

If the United States is a police state, then the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is its national police force, with all the brutality, ineptitude and corruption such a role implies. In fact, although the DHS’ governmental bureaucracy may at times appear to be inept and bungling, it is ruthlessly efficient when it comes to building what the Founders feared most—a standing army on American soil.

You Don’t Own Yourself

Guest Author

The libertarians (and many conservatives) want the individual to triumph over the state: maximum freedom and minimum state. On the other hand the liberal holds to "positive rights" of the FDR variety. The problem with the individual-state dichotomy is that society isn't merely composed of individuals and the state.

Local Officials are Duty Bound to Resist ‘Pretended Legislation’

Michael Peroutka

If you think that law is something that a judge can make just by deciding a case that comes before him; or if you think that law is something that a legislature can make just by passing a bill and sending it to a governor or a president for his approval; or if you think that a governor or a president can make law just by means of an executive order, then I would respectfully suggest that you are mistaken about the true source and nature of law.

Islam

Just Islam

Victor Sharpe

The irrevocable Islamic and Koranic injunction upon all Muslims is to wage relentless war against any non-Muslim nation state that exists within what Islam decrees as the Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam). Wherever the Muslim foot has trod triumphal in the name of Allah, that territory is considered eternally Islamic land. If it is lost, then it enters the Dar al-Harb (the House of War) and must be retaken and the population either forcibly converted to Islam, forced into dhimmi degradation, or exterminated.

Despite liberal howls, Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling was right

Star Parker

Why exactly is it that Democrats find the Hobby Lobby decision so outrageous that in America religious freedom is respected? That we have law – The Religious Freedom Restoration Act under which the owners of Hobby Lobby sued the federal government – that assures that no federal law will substantially burden individuals in the practice of their religion. Paying for contraception would violate the Christian principles of Hobby Lobby’s owners.

"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
