The War Of Independence

Our struggle formally commenced on July 4, 1776 with the Declaration of Independence.  Calling the ensuing conflict the Revolutionary War is a misnomer.

The Religious Foundation Of The United States

While the First Amendment prohibits the establishment of any official religion at the Federal level,  Judeo-Christian moral values and religious faith were inseparably interwoven with all political issues in 1776 and in 1787, when the Constitution was crafted.

Liberal-Progressivism’s Religious Foundation

Enraged reaction on the political left against the Supreme Court’s recent defense of First Amendment religious freedom reminds us that liberal-progressivism, Nazism, Fascism, and communism all are modern-day tyrannical variants of ancient gnosticism.

Liberal-Progressive Human Rights Doctrine

From the beginning of his presidency, Obama has repeatedly praised Islam and favored Islam over Israel, even at the potential expense of Israel’s obliteration and the slaughtering of its entire population.  This is human rights?

The only speech that liberal-progressives believe the law should respect is doctrines of secular socialism.  If they don’t like your opinion, they will have it silenced, one way or another (see Washington Redskins case).

Europe has been riven by riots and intimidation by Muslims demanding that sharia supplant local law and centuries-old constitutional custom.  That campaign is more subtly underway here in the United States.

The Fed Aims To Continue Stealing Your Money

2% annual inflation, the Federal Reserve’s current policy target, will produce cumulative inflation of 144% over a normal 45-year working span.  At retirement almost $2.50 will be required to purchase what $1.00 buys today.

Obama As Successor To Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, And Mao

These leaders, with the best of intentions (by liberal-progressive standards), destroyed (or are in process of destroying) their societies.

The Constitution Punches Back

Liberal-progressivism took a solid hit at the hands of the Supreme Court.  Discriminatory school admission policies are not required by the Constitution.

Is Obama’s Inept Foreign Policy Incompetent Or Intentional?

Maybe Obama wants the United States to decline into third-rate status in world affairs.

Liberal-Progressives Will Teach Us What To Think

‘Academic Justice’: Inside the Abyss of the Academy, which appears on the FrontPage website, conjures up visions of ruthless, all-encompassing political rule by George Orwell’s Big Brother in the novel 1984.  Arthur Koestler’s Darkness at Noon, based on Stalin’s 1938 purges of dissidents in the Moscow show trials, also comes to mind.

The common theme is that no one, under liberal-progressive ‘social justice,’ can be allowed to express opinions other than those approved by the ruling intellectual elite.  Anyone who ventures to question the elite must be liquidated, or at least, in the manner of the Democrat/Socialist Party, tarred with the brush of treason and racism.
