Censorship is OK When Liberals Call For It

Remember times when Christians called for the banning of books that promote homosexuality or immoral sexual lifestyles?  How about when Christians tried to stop the placement of the Harry Potter books in local libraries?  Whether you agree with banning such books or not, the fact is, all Christians were lumped into the “ignorant hick” class by the liberal intelligentsia of the day. Fast forward to today in Philadelphia.  Last week, Friends’ Country School in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, 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 […]

“No Child Left Behind” Is History

I suppose this is a baby step in the right direction. From the Wall Street Journal: “U.S. Senate Votes to Replace ‘No Child Left Behind’ Law.” The Senate on Wednesday voted to replace the 13-year-old No Child Left Behind law, returning to the states significant powers to determine how poorly performing schools should be improved and curbing the authority of the secretary of education. The Senate in a 85-12 vote cleared legislation that will guide about $26 billion federal in spending annually 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 […]

Some Liberals Try to Get Others to Back Off of the No Gun List

This picture showed up the other day on my Facebook feed: The National Rifle Association, for what it is worth, is politically powerful because it represents a vast number of voters. So being “in the pocket of the National Rifle Association” is a way to disparage the voters. That is all. But aside from the NRA smear, what are we to make of Liberals who think it is a good idea to arbitrarily deprive you of your rights without a trial? In fact, lots of Liberals are realizing that position Read more […]

New York Times Calls for America to be Disarmed

Who didn’t see this coming? The New York Times, in its first front-page editorial in almost 100 years, today called on the government to force Americans to give up their guns “for the good of their fellow citizens.” “It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency,” the editorial states. After the events of the past week, which featured saturated coverage of two mass shootings, the media have 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 […]

CIA Director Thinks You Should Spit on the Bill of Rights for Security

The New York Times reports “After Paris Attacks, C.I.A. Director Rekindles Debate Over Surveillance.” It’s a rather understated headline.  A diabolical range of recent attacks claimed by the Islamic State — a Russian airliner blown up in Egypt, a double suicide bombing in Beirut and Friday’s ghastly assaults on Paris — has rekindled a debate over the proper limits of government surveillance in an age of terrorist mayhem. On Monday, in unusually raw language, John Brennan, the C.I.A. director, Read more […]

DHS Caught Planning to Ignore Court Orders to Obey Immigration Law

The Daily Signal reports, “Leaked DHS Memo Reveals Attempt to Skirt Immigration Law; Senate Republicans Demand Explanation.” Senate Republicans are asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain a leaked agency memo reportedly revealing that federal officials are planning to evade a federal court order barring pieces of President Barack Obama’s executive immigration actions. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, led eight others on the committee in a letter sent to DHS Secretary 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 […]

Breitbart Warned Fox Will Sabotage Anti-TPP Candidates at Debate

Breibart editors were worried that the pro-Obamatrade debate moderators will try to trip up anti-TPP candidates: There may be trouble ahead for the top candidates at tonight’s Republican debate, sponsored by Fox Business News and the Wall Street Journal. Why? There may be a slew of new “gotcha” trade questions posed by the debate’s trio of free-trade favoring moderators, Maria Bartiromo, Neil Cavuto, and Gerard Baker. These free-trade proponents have never seen a so-called free-trade agreement Read more […]
