The Truth About Robert E. Lee That Liberals Hope You Never Hear

ON AUGUST 15, 2017 AT 5:24 AM

The removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee was the flashpoint that brought white supremacists to Charlottesville, Virginia, and reignited a national debate over Confederate monuments. But what do most Americans know about the Confederate general? Continue reading “The Truth About Robert E. Lee That Liberals Hope You Never Hear”

Taxation, Slavery, and Consent

Chris Calton

I could see no reason why I should, at the end of each week, pour the reward of my toil into the purse of my master. When I carried to him my weekly wages, he would, after counting the money, look me in the face with a robber-like fierceness, and ask, “Is this all?” He was satisfied with nothing less than the last cent. He would, however, when I made him six dollars, sometimes gives me six cents, to encourage me. (emphasis added) Continue reading “Taxation, Slavery, and Consent”

My hometown, Baltimore, is one of the most violent and dysfunctional cities in the country. The failed policies of socialism, anti-family values, and “soft on crime” have taken one of the most famous cities down from a population of 900,000 in the 1960s to roughly 600,000 today. But never fear: The liberal leaders in Baltimore and other blue cesspools have discovered the perfect solution to avoiding the difficult policy challenges of our time — they have declared war on Robert E. Lee. Continue reading “Why the obsession with tearing down monuments is dumb & dangerous”

America’s Deadly Sins

August 13, 2017

By Deana Chadwell

Most Americans are sick of self-righteous, breast-beating leftists moaning about the shame they bear for being American. They claim we have become wealthy “on the backs” of the “oppressed” –- as if no American ever worked for anything himself. They whine that America has treated its women badly, its natives even worse and that the poor are still poor, and the rich, heaven forbid, are still rich. Shame on us. Really? Let’s take score.

5 PRESIDENTS WHO SERIOUSLY MESSED UP THE 20TH CENTURY

By: Chris Pandolfo | February 20, 2017

The sitting president of the United States is always in contention to be declared the “worst president” in history by his partisan opponents. The same is true for President Donald Trump.  But what makes a president a bad president? Is it bad policy? Is it a failure to rise to the occasion during a crisis? In honor of Presidents Day, here are five presidents conservatives should consider among the WORST presidents.

The dishonorable mention: Barack Obama

Defending the Indefensible

June 15, 2017

By John Steinreich
The false narrative of Operation Trump-Russia is the latest in a long train of episodes wherein Democrats have actively defended the indefensible. Emerging in the 1820s to counter the Whigs in favor of Andrew Jackson in 1828, the Democratic Party has had an age-old tradition of fighting to advance every bad idea in American history. Continue reading “Defending the Indefensible”

The Cost of Historical Amnesia in America

By Richard Winchester  October 28, 2016

(The comments in blue are mine)

When sizable portions of a people forget their history, they risk losing contact with their nation’s essence, what its best qualities are, and where it ought to be headed.  They may soon cease to inhabit an independent political entity. Continue reading “The Cost of Historical Amnesia in America”

More Federal control leads to ineptitude and destruction of the American spirit.

Should we dissolve the Indian reservations?

The New York Times had a long article describing how the town of Whiteclay, Nebraska (population 12) sells millions (yes, millions!) of alcoholic beverages every year because the town is just over the border from the local Indian reservation, where alcohol is banned.  (Forgive me for calling them American Indians, but as nearly all the people reading this are “Native Americans,” it’s a much more descriptive and specific term.)

The situation is so bad that in Whiteclay, you can find dozens of American Indians lying comatose on the streets, drunk out of their minds, like a scene out of The Walking Dead.

Colin Kaepernick and America haters are wrong.

SSB ImageIt took me a while to wrap my head around this one.

This is similar to someone forming an opinion and then cherry picking the scriptures to find support for that opinion instead of analysing the scriptures in the context of the history and culture of the time it was written.

The Star Spangled Banner… Continue reading “Colin Kaepernick and America haters are wrong.”
