Abortion is Criminal According to the Constitution

Abortion is illegal. And protecting, committing, funding, or participating in the act is criminal. Period. I do not make this statement because the Constitution says it, but because God says it. The Bible was the chief source of law and morality for the founders of our nation. They understood that God’s protective laws such as “thou shalt not murder” were not negotiable. The truth of my assertion can easily be seen in America’s founding documents, for example: In the Declaration Read more […]

No Bible, No America

There is yet more evidence that, without the Bible, America would be unimaginable. Here is a big slice of American history that academics and elitists would like to bury forever. Joel McDurmon writes about it at the American Vision website: “A lost-and-found treasure: When America’s pastors boldly preached politics, resisted tyranny, and founded a nation on the Bible.” I would like today to introduce you to one of the more remarkable books I have read recently. It is an old and largely Read more […]

FDR’s Second “Bill of Rights”

This is, perhaps, the most remembered phrase attributed to the cartoon character Pogo in a syndicated cartoon strip of the same name.  Pogo was the invention of cartoonist Walt Kelly and first appeared 66 years” We Have Met the Enemy, and He is Us: FDR’s 2nd Bill of Rights” ago, this week, on October 4th, 1948. The phrase “We have met the enemy, and he is us” pretty well sums up the Kelly’s attitude toward the foibles of mankind and the nature of the human condition.   Indeed, Read more […]

Count the Cost: What Is Liberty Worth?

Is it worth paying the cost of freedom? Our Founding Fathers considered this when they signed the Declaration of Independence, a bold creed announcing why we should be free.  Rather than react out of emotion they carefully pondered known truths and reasoned about the value of being free.  They stood on the authority of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God that they understood entitled them to freedom.  They considered the unalienable rights endowed by God including life, liberty and the pursuit Read more […]

What Does Regular Pepsi Have to Do with the Declaration of Independence?

Selling regular Pepsi can put you in strange company—like that of the Founding Fathers, the signers of the Declaration of Independence. To see what I mean, take a look at this quiz, “How Much Do You Know about Liberty?” from the Foundation for Economic Education. Note especially the second question: Which great American patriot was called the “Prince of Smugglers”? Here is the answer: John Hancock (1737-1793), the resourceful Boston merchant who defied British mercantilist restrictions Read more […]

Christianity in the Classroom?

We’re told by progressives and many public educators Christianity in the classroom is wrong–that God, specifically the Judeo-Christian God of the Bible, has no place in the classroom.  Not only, they say, is this a bad idea, but it’s actually breaking the law – a violation of students’ religious liberties.  Really? I was recently invited to teach a 12-week Constitution course using a room at a local public high school in Springboro, Ohio.  The class was open to the public – parents, Read more […]

The ISIS White House Photo – How Did the Founding Fathers Expect Americans to Deal with Domestic Threats?

Here’s an interesting story from ABC about alleged ISIS White House photo, The Secret Service said it is “aware” of a photo that appeared to show an image of an ISIS flag in front of the White House. If authentic, the photo showed a hand holding up an image of a flag for ISIS (also known as ISIL or Islamic State), displayed on a smartphone, on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House fence. That area, closed off to street traffic, is frequented by thousands of tourists every day. It was Read more […]

Dumb on the 4th of July

A prophet of old once said “my people perish for lack of knowledge.” Today, our stunning lack of knowledge of what it is we’re really celebrating this weekend means we could be the generation that sees liberty perish in America. Look at what happened this week. Arguably our biggest “win” since the Scott Walker recall came from the Supreme Court abiding by the actual wording of the First Amendment in the Hobby Lobby case, but only by a scant 5-4 margin. The fact we even had to win the Read more […]

New Federal Target: “Anti-Government Animus”

I wonder how many others experience a chill from the “wax nose” phrase “anti-government animus”? How would Eric Holder define that? From Yahoo! News: “U.S. reconstitutes group to fight homegrown extremists.” The Department of Justice will reconstitute a task force that was originally formed after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing but dissolved after the Sept. 11, 2001 hijacked plane attacks as law enforcement agencies focused on threats from militants abroad. On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Read more […]

FBI Director Acknowledges Common Sense of the American People

I have no idea why he said them, but I really appreciate the words recently spoken by the FBI director. From the Washington Times: FBI Director James Comey has a message for Americans: be suspicious of the federal government. Mr. Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that in the wake of the Edward Snowden scandal he could understand why Americans would be worried about government overreach. “I believe people should be suspicious of government power. I am,” Mr. Comey said, Read more […]

Yes, It is a President’s Job to Fulfill God’s Will

Everybody knows Barack Obama is a hypocrite, so when he said at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, “killing the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will,” it was no surprise from this very pro-abortion president. And part of that is because Obama wasn’t talking about abortion, but about terrorism: “Extremists succumb to an ignorant nihilism that shows they don’t understand the faiths they claim to profess, for killing the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will.” The hypocrisy comes from Read more […]

Political Party Poison

It is once again an election year.  Media outlets will refer to it as the “midterm election,” and political pundits from the Democratic Party will try to convince us that the problems we are experiencing in America are as result of the Republicans in the House of Representatives.  On the other hand, Republican commentators will place the blame on the Democrats in the Senate and White House. George Washington warned us against party politics.  He referred to political parties as factions, Read more […]
