In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government. That is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by the means of the Bible. — Benjamin Rush, doctor and signer of the Declaration of Independence

Why the RINOs Now Care About IRS Tea Party Harassment

May 24, 2013   ·   By   ·   0 Comments

LevinHave you ever wondered why the RINOs-who despise the Tea Party and the icky conservatives who make it up-suddenly care about the fact that the IRS harassed Tea Party and other conservative groups?

If you haven’t, you should.

Mark Levin has, and he has the answer. This has been known about for a couple of years, but the GOP establishment didn’t care then. After all, IRS harassment was doing the GOP establishment a solid in keeping the “kooks,” “radicals,” “extremists” and “Taliban” of the Tea Party restrained so they could push their feckless, corrupt establishment candidates and agenda.

But now that the election is over (in which their feckless establishment candidates got trounced, like they usually do), they see political mileage from the IRS intimidation scandal. They get to make their political (but not ideological) enemy President Obama look bad, while making the American people believe they actually believe in the same conservative Republican values that the Tea Party believes in.

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.

The Police State: Follow Orders or Resist?

John W. Whitehead

The perils of resisting the police state grow more costly with each passing day, especially if you hope to escape with your life and property intact. The thing you must remember is that we’ve entered an age of militarized police in which we’re no longer viewed as civilians but as enemy combatants.

On October 6, 2014, a widow came to my office for help with medical bills. The woman is from Portage, Indiana. So far, the bills totaled almost $3,000. Her husband had passed away less than four weeks before our meeting and she was worried because she was getting medical bills regarding services during his last few days alive.

In Defense of Marriage: Civil Disobedience on a Massive Scale

Guest Author

Yesterday's action by the Supreme Court only solidifies the idea that the powerful elites who dominate politics, media and culture do not care what the people think, expressed through the ballot box or their elected state legislators. And if "We the People's" votes do not count, then We live not in freedom but under tyranny.

Study: Another Nail in the ‘Safe’ Marijuana Coffin

Bob Ellis

The evidence just continues to mount that marijuana is not the wonderful, benevolent plant that potheads claim it is. Not that there has been a dearth of that information in the past, since for years I have remarked on factual data about its dangers, including traffic deaths, mental health issues, psychosis, schizophrenia, other psychotic symptoms and other health dangers. Then, of course, there are the wonderful things pot use does for productivity and responsible use of the taxpayer's dollars.

"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
