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 […]

Thanksgiving, Collectivism and Christianity

I know way too many ultraliberal folks. (Probably comes from living in California.) That being the case, Thanksgiving is not only a day for giving thanks, but it is a day of annual inevitability when the conversation at some point will turn and someone will assert that Thanksgiving is the very model of socialism and a demonstration of how collectivism is the moral duty of mankind as demonstrated in the Bible. Said assertion means Thanksgiving is also the day when I annually choke on a piece 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 […]

Washington Post Admits Margaret Sanger was a Eugenicist but Pretends They Are Denying It

Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist and championed the movement; she didn’t merely use it to promote birth control. As I just posted, the Washington Post seems to be realizing false denials of Ben Carson’s accusations against Planned Parenthood are not credible. So now they are trying to admit some of the truth and still spin the issues in a Liberal direction. In addition to conceding  Carson’s claim that abortions outnumber the (next?) leading causes for death for both African Americans and Read more […]

Jefferson and Jackson Exiled from Democrat Party in the Name of Inclusiveness

Is the Democrat Party showing it is inclusive or that it wants to pretend that it has no questionable past? Our ancestors sinned. Duh. I don’t mean the ones who were losers and whom history has forgotten. Even our great forefathers who built us a legacy that we enjoy committed serious sins. Does that mean we should reject them and claim they contributed nothing to us? Or does that mean we should forget them and pretend they never existed? I ask because the Democrat Party has decided Read more […]

A Stupid Way for Republicans to Attack a Democrat: IRS Troubles

IRS troubles could possibly indicate a character flaw, but not necessarily. Attacking someone for being behind in their taxes is not going to work well. As you may have heard, Melissa Gilbert is running for the House of Representatives to represent a district in Michigan. Gilbert was the actress who in her younger days played Laura Ingalls Wilder in the TV series, “The Little House on the Prairie.” The TV series was based on a book series by the real Laura Ingalls Wilder with a lot of editorial Read more […]

Will Smithsonian Listen to Black Pastors Petitioning against Margaret Sanger?

If the Confederate Flag is so racially offensive a statue in honor of Margaret Sanger should be at least as offensive. Slavery was evil. Racism was evil. Combined they were worse. But it wasn’t as horrible as mass extermination combined with racism. That is what happened during the Holocaust. Between the horror of the holocaust and the horror of antebellum American slavery sits Margaret Sanger, who wanted to weed out the “unfit” racial minorities and whose organization is now a major Read more […]

Is Congress Crossing the Line into Purging History to “Fight Racism”?

Purging history isn’t going to do anything to spread tolerance or end bigotry because such actions constitute intolerant bigotry. As I said before, it is completely appropriate for voters in a state (through their representatives or by some direct referendum depending on how the system is set up) to remove a Confederate flag from state property or to stop allowing a Confederate flag as a license plate option. The Confederate battle flag does represent racism in the minds of many citizens and Read more […]

The ACLU Finally Finds a Chief Executive Who Should Obey the Law

Perhaps the ACLU might try to show us some commitment to principle? Or is that not possible? The ACLU is mad at the Oklahoma governor. According to Tulsa World, “Gov. Mary Fallin, monument unmoved by Supreme Court’s Ten Commandments ruling.” Gov. Mary Fallin on Tuesday said the Ten Commandments monument will stay at the Capitol despite a court ruling that said it violated the state Constitution and must be removed. Fallin said Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked the Oklahoma Read more […]

Is Islam a Threat to America?

We recently moved to the beautiful state of North Carolina – one of the fastest growing states in the nation. My family attended one of the local churches and a guest preacher was speaking about the church’s outreach to the ever-growing populace from all over the nation, and the world. The preacher explained that North Carolina has changed from a small town feel where everyone assumed his or her neighbor attended a church in the Christian faith. Now, people of many faiths, or no faith at Read more […]

A Meditation on the Fourth of July

This was written the day before the Fourth of July but it is still worth reflecting upon after the holiday weekend is over. We are nearing the 4th of July. It is a time of joy and celebration. And we hope to satiate our hunger tomorrow with good drinks, good food, and good friends. But beyond all the fireworks, parades, and the good and healthy national festivities, we will also remember that in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, setting the 13 colonies Read more […]

Happy Presbyterian Rebellion Day!

Yes, many observers have described the movement we celebrate on July 4 as a Presbyterian rebellion. Looking for someone to blame for the demise of freedom in America? Perhaps you need look no further than your local Presbyterian elder who has completely neglected the application of God’s truth for the civil realm. “John Calvin was the virtual founder of America” — influential German historian, Leopold Von Ranke (1795-1886) Don’t like taking the word of an historian? Then consider the statement Read more […]
