The Source of Law, Rights, and Martin Luther King Jr

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1dKbveDcwM Please ponder, study, and memorize this statement with me. There is a God, our rights come from Him, and the only purpose of government is to protect and secure our God-given rights.  This week Americans will be paying tribute to this century’s likely brightest orator and most dedicated man to individual liberty, Reverend Michael King Jr. (aka Martin Luther King Jr.). While I am almost certain that the good minister from Atlanta, Georgia, would Read more […]

Is Chief Justice Roy Moore an American Hero?

The most reliable history book on record and the basis of authority for all American law, jurisprudence, and liberty challenges us with the question, “Have you not read that He Who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” This question then creates what you might call the “Since-the Creation-of-Humankind” definition of marriage, Read more […]

A President is not a King and States Must Make Sure of It

Our nation’s first president, George Washington, under the newly formed Constitution in 1789, found himself in an uncomfortable position.  As the nation’s first Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief he knew the delicate ground between strength and tyranny. Fearing any comparison to the monarchal government from which America had just been liberated, Washington took care to avoid any physical or symbolic references to European monarchs.  When the Senate proposed that he be called by the Read more […]

Wouldn’t a Second Political Party Be Nice, Franklin Graham?

With Republicans in control of both the House and Senate, the expectancy of civilized, ethical Americans was that Congress would eliminate funding for the abominable child-murdering organization Planned Parenthood in 2016. Some members in the GOP threatened to shut down the government if that wasn’t done. Rather than shutting off the unconstitutional spigot of federal funding to a private sector organization that sells infant baby parts to the highest bidder, Planned Parenthood was given Read more […]

The Political Significance of Christmas

In their effort to make a point, those who discuss law and government and politics for a living often miss the most crucial – the most critical point of all. So, as we celebrate Christmas, this is a good time to take a deep breath and revisit first principles. We should remember the political significance of Christmas. Now don’t get distracted by arguments that early Christians latched onto a pre-existing pagan holiday to establish the date of Christmas. That may be true, but it is a distraction Read more […]

Americans Cause Climate Change and the Result…Terrorism

Radical progressives have come up with a new theory on the cause of global terrorism…climate change.  You heard me correctly. Climate change causes global terrorism. International leaders, the Pope, the United States Chief Executive and other lawmaking members of Congress are taking this issue very seriously and are wasting no time.  These oracles are empirically certain that Americans (the world’s alleged second largest climate polluters) are causing terrorism but aren’t able to determine Read more […]

Guest Post: Protect the Citizens or the Terrorists?

The week before last, a terrorist couple slaughtered fourteen people and injured twenty-one others in San Bernardino, California. Shooter Tashfeen Malik, a Pakistani citizen and the wife of the other shooter, Syed Farook, entered the United States with a K-1 visa which had an inaccurate address. Evidence shows that they both committed to “jihad” and “martyrdom” at least two years ago. Somehow our government didn’t discover this, and Malik was admitted into the U.S. and later given a green Read more […]

Do We Need More Gun Control for Muslims?

I do not mean to be crass with my title but for a few decades now I have noticed many anti-American sentiments around the topic of innocent Americans protecting themselves.  None of these sentiments are logical; none of them are ethical; and certainly none of them have prevented weapons from taking the life of the innocent they are claiming to protect! Take “gun-free” zones as one example of this nonsensical anti-self defense mentality.  We were supposed to believe these zones would Read more […]

I Disavow Conservatism and So Does C. J. Pearson

Teenage viral sensation C.J. Pearson, who first entered the national media spotlight when his video criticizing Obama went viral in February, recently announced he would no longer identify as “conservative.” This begs the question that I pose to you.  Are you a conservative?  Do you consider yourself a liberal? If you find yourself using either of these terms when discussing your political worldview, you may have fallen into a trap. Let me explain. When the president, or any Read more […]

Happy Thanksgiving, America! Here is Your History

We are so grateful at IOTC for the wonderful, providential year it has been. In light of this amazing holiday, I would like to give thanks for the opportunity to share the American View with others across this great country. I am especially encouraged by our American Club youth initiatives. Rush Limbaugh’s “Rush Revere Newsletter” recently recognized the efforts of one of our American Club chapters in North Carolina! In order to reinvigorate American youth, Rush featured this group that drew Read more […]

University Safe Zones, a Danger for the First Amendment

Recently while on a speaking tour in California I spent an evening with a family in the San Francisco Bay Area.  They told me how wonderful it was to speak freely about their values with my wife and me.  Apparently their values weren’t very welcomed in the public discourse of their geographic location.  This brought to mind an idea postulated by Winston Churchill, “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry on as if nothing ever happened.” The Read more […]

Obama’s Healthy Communities, the Anti-thesis of America

Barack Obama made the following statement regarding the White House’s “Healthy Communities Challenge,” where 20 cities with low numbers of insured Americans compete against one another to see which community can sign the most people up for health insurance. “I’ll come visit the city that enrolls the highest percentage of folks who aren’t covered right now. That’s a promise…After all, this country’s at its best when we look out for each other.” “This is reality,” Read more […]
