The Struggle Dividing Our Nation

Increasingly frequent presidential executive orders and arbitrary bureaucratic regulations make it abundantly clear that liberal-progressives aim to conquer and to impose their will upon the rest of us, making the Constitution all but meaningless.

The American Mobocracy

A hate crime is becoming whatever private thought or belief fails to conform to the liberal-progressive shibboleths of the moment.  Mobs are at the ready to crush dissenters.

Secular Religions

Liberal-progressivism and its subset environmentalism are both secular religions. They are, along with Lenin’s and Stalin’s Communism, Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers Party (the Nazis), and Mussolini’s Fascism, merely denominations within the church of socialism.

England’s Stuart kings’ repeated efforts to bypass Parliament and to proclaim laws unilaterally led to the Glorious Revolution of 1689 deposing James II and to Parliament’s enacting the English Bill of Rights, the precursor to our own first ten amendments to the Constitution.

Society’s Rights

The lectern used by Senator Dianne Feinstein to announce the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s interrogation methods bore a label declaring “human rights first.”  Human rights, however, depend entirely upon preservation of the political power and social culture that proclaims and supports them.  Enhanced interrogation methods after 9/11 were essential to that end.

Rioting Mobs Victimized By Black Capitalists

Mike Adam’s take on the riots, looting, and burning in Ferguson and elsewhere: truth is an impediment to destabilizing political and social order to further liberal-progressivism.

Your Tax Dollars At Work

It’s hardly news that, in the case of the IRS, taxes paid by believers in our original Constitutional government are being used to further the cause of socialism and the Democrat-Socialist Party.  With latest revelations pried out of the White House and the IRS, what’s news is the vast scope of the IRS’s skulduggery.
