The heritage of the South, symbolized by the Confederate Battle Flag, is so important to many
Honoring our Forefathers

 By Lt. Col. (P) Bill Connor Full Story

Like nearly all South Carolinians, I was deeply saddened upon learning of the senseless murders at the Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. At the time, I was serving (military duties) outside the state when I also learned one of the slain was related to a fellow soldier.


Hating America Transcending Honoring America
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Over the past seven years, the United States of America has become the country people love to hate.

Hating America started as a blamefest and flowered out to a full blown hatefest.



Saudi prince giving away his money buying immortality for the Democrats?
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

There should be no big mystery as to why Alwaleed bin Talal, the Saudi prince Bill Gates talked into giving away all his money to charity, is dumping his riches.

Imagine pro-tobacco groups wanted to participate in fund raising marches for cancer research. ‘We want to help defeat cancer too,’ the tobacco advocates announce.







Problem solved, TV Land: Here's your new, politically correct Dukes of Hazzard
 By Dan Calabrese Full Story

The amazing thing about this is that it was made six years ago - when it was funny enough to imagine liberals trying to PC up the Dukes but still not to the point where you could actually imagine a major cable network pulling it because it isn’t. Hats off to Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy for actually having the prescience to see this coming.



San Francisco politicians have blood on their hands
 By Matthew Vadum Full Story

Left-wingers in San Francisco should be hanging their heads in shame after their borderline seditious, destructive immigration policies allowed an illegal alien felon to murder a young woman randomly in broad daylight.

They’re Just Committing the Crimes Americans Won’t Commit
 By Selwyn Duke Full Story

With the San Francisco woman murdered by one of Barack Obama’s “new Americans,” we should ask: how much innocent blood will be spilled on the altar of the Left’s “fundamental transformation” of America? While callow and cowardly corporations are severing ties with Donald Trump because he dared speak a truth in an age of lies, the reality of far too many of the illegals invading our country is this:

The real low-down on Pope Francis' Encyclical on Climate Change
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

Extremely curious at the media allegation that the "scientific Pantheist who advises Pope Francis" and has swayed "Laudato Si" (named so after St. Francis of Assisi's canticle), "seems to believe in Gaia, but not in God," I set out to read for myself the climate change encyclical in Italian.






Happy Independence Day
 By Sandy Stringfellow Full Story

Every 4th of July, patriotic Americans celebrate the fundamental essence of what Thomas Jefferson penned in the Declaration of Independence (with Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston); a commemoration of July 4th, 1776, upon which day the Thirteen Colonies set forth the explanation and justification for a parting of ways with Great Britain and the tyrannical rule of King George III: the legal separation occurred on July 2nd, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress approved a resolution of independence proposed by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia. 



George Takei—too dumb to be a real racist
 By Arthur Weinreb Full Story

As everyone who does not depend on the left wing mainstream media for news knows by now, actor and gay rights spokesman, George Takei, is not too pleased with what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his dissenting opinion in the gay marriage case, Obergefell v. Hodges.

Now Even the Supreme Court Ignores Our Constitution and Wears the Hats of Obama-type Fascists
 By Jerry McConnell Full Story

Many American citizens have been openly questioning and wondering if the recent SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) decisions regarding and Same Sex Marriage are the beginnings of a governmental fascist takeover by self-appointed elitists.

On Social Security, we could follow the examples of Chile and Canada . . .
 By Herman Cain   --American Politics

Greece should be sparking more talk about how we address the runaway spending in this country, which is due in large part to the dysfunctionality of our Social Security system. Now I am not going to propose anything about cutting your Social Security benefits, which is what the Democrats scream about every time someone brings up this problem. They don’t want anyone to consider real solutions to this problem.

Whoa: Repeal of medical device tax may have veto-proof support
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

Say this for ObamaCare: It certainly is a resilient piece of horrible legislation. No matter how many people want it either changed in part or repealed in full, it just keeps on keeping on without any real changes at all - unless, of course, the White House decides to unilaterally change what the law says. (And why not, since neither Congress nor the Supreme Court will do anything about it?) It goes to show just how much you can accomplish as president when you don’t care about the constitutional limits of your authority, and the voters don’t care about that either.


Texas Clerk Refuses to Issue Licenses for Same-Sex Marriage
 By Liberty Counsel   --American Freedom

Irion County, TX - Citing the Constitution and natural law, elected clerk for Irion County, Texas, Molly Crimer has vowed to stand for natural marriage. Referring to the opinion of five lawyers regarding marriage, Crimer said: “To keep my oath to uphold the Constitution, I must reject this ruling that I believe is lawless….I have to stand for the Constitution and the rule of law.”  Liberty Counsel is offering Ms. Crimer pro bono counsel.


Uh-oh… The New York Times notices that ObamaCare is causing insurance rates to soar
 By Robert Laurie   --American Healthcare

There have been plenty of stories about the ways in which ObamaCare is driving up healthcare costs. All across the country, we’ve seen double digit insurance rate hikes and soaring premiums. It’s nothing new, and conservatives have been warning that this would be the case since long before the unpopular law was rammed down America’s throat.


State Dept. withholding content of Obama/Hillary call from night of Benghazi attack
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

Some of us remember that Barack Obama jetted off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas on the night our consulate in Benghazi was attacked by terrorists associated with Al Qaeda. Now you might be able to offer this defense of the president: He can do his job from anywhere. He has communication capabilities wherever he goes, and he has the freedom to use them any time he wants.

The best renewable energy investment
 By Marita Noon   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

When you read a headline such as one from CNBC touting “Solar power’s stunning growth,” realize that it’s thanks to you—even if you’ve never even thought of putting solar panels on your roof or live in an apartment where you couldn’t install them if you wanted to. If you live in the United States, vote, pay taxes, and get your electricity from a utility company, you’ve helped the solar power industry. You support the solar industry through a variety of tax and regulatory policies—voted in by politicians you elected—that favor it over other lower-cost forms of electricity generation.


Answer the WHY? of it all
 By Sarge   --Christianity - Religion

Christopher R Weiss ·  Top Commenter · Okemos, Michigan
The most important thing about being an atheist is understanding that this life matters. It is not a test for the afterlife, it is not a trial built by some god, and it is not just a bridge to a better life. For the religious, this life is ephemeral, meaningless, and empty. The only thing for this life for the religious is to follow the rules so you can hopefully do better after you die. This is the ultimate degradation of life. What matters is your life now. What matters is the people you know now. What matters is what you do now, and not what you hope to be forgiven for later.


Beware of stage 1 thinking policy makers
 By Yoram Ettinger   --American Politics

National security and foreign policy makers should study a critical lesson of the medical profession: The failure to think beyond the stage 1 effect of painkillers may solve short-term problems, but will trigger long-term health risks: addiction, organ damage, nausea, headaches, dizziness, memory impairment and decreased cognitive performance.


Disregarding Reality, Yet Again: The Human Rights Council Commission of Inquiry Report
 By INSS--Pnina Sharvit Baruch, Keren Aviram   --World News

The report by the Commission of Inquiry appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to examine the events surrounding Operation Protective Edge was published on June 22, 2015. As expected, the report criticizes Israel, concluding that its military operations violated the laws of armed conflict and expressing concern regarding the possible commission of war crimes.


UK Chancellor To Abolish Coalition’s Green Tax Target
 By Guest Column--Dr. Benny Peiser   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The cost of subsidising new wind farms is spiralling out of control, government sources have privately warned. Officials admitted that so-called “green” energy schemes will require a staggering £9 billion a year in subsidies – paid for by customers – by 2020. The Chancellor believes the figures demonstrate the need to rein in the cost of policies to tackle climate change.


Email Dumps Continue to Undermine Clinton Candidacy
 By Roger Aronoff--and Bethany Stotts   --American Politics

Hillary Clinton’s reputation is taking repeated blows as the drip, drip, drip of email productions from her private email server draw attention to her many lies. The Obama administration has admitted that she did not, in fact, turn over all the necessary emails from her private mail server to the government. It also has released nearly 3,000 pages of emails implicating members of the Obama administration in their own lies.
Gov. Bobby Jindal to Hannity – “I invite Americans to join a cause, not a campaign”
 By Rev. Michael Bresciani   --American Politics

In a remarkable full one hour interview with Sean Hannity on the evening of July 3, 2015 Governor Bobby Jindal (R) Louisiana presented his case for why Americans should “join a cause” instead of a campaign. In a detailed and fully articulate explanation, void of pauses and obfuscation, Jindal masterfully answered all of Hannity’s questions.


Time for Civil Disobedience, Christians
 By Matt Barber   --American Politics

“Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”
– John 15:20

The push back has begun. Christian business owners, lawyers, parents, judges, county clerks, organizations, universities, hospitals, adoption agencies and other individuals and groups have been given an ultimatum by five unelected,
unaccountable liberals in Washington, D.C.: “You must now obey us and disobey God. You must pretend, with us, that sin-based same-sex ‘marriage’ is an actual thing.”


The Problematic Scenarios in Syria: The Choices Facing Israel
 By INSS--Udi Dekel, Omer Einav   --World News

The current balance of power in Syria is influenced by the three-pronged constellation in the Middle East, marked by the Iranian-led Shiite axis; the Saudi-led Sunni axis; and the Salafi jihadi elements, which constitute a third pole in the equation. Syria today is the primary battleground, and all the interested parties are represented there, including groups belonging to the Shiite axis; groups belonging to the Sunni camp – among them global jihadi elements such as the Islamic State; world powers such as Russia and the United States; minority groups fighting for their lives, such as the Kurds, the Druze, and the Alawites; and the countries sharing common borders with Syria.


Whither the “Love” in Illegal Alien Francisco Sanchez, Jeb Bush?
 By John Lillpop   --Crime-Terror-Security

Back in April of 2014, Republican Presidential candidate Jeb Bush created a bit of a furor when he argued that some illegal aliens steal into America unlawfully “out of an act of love,” and, as such, should receive preferential treatment and tolerance.

Bush’s argument was generally met with outright disdain, or amusement, or both. The idea that borders and immigration laws and enforcement should be based on anything other than compliance with the law was correctly seen as a sign that Jeb Bush is not ready for prime time in front of a national audience.


The shrinking workforce of Obama’s America
 By Herman Cain   --American Politics

Ronald Reagan used to counter liberal conventional wisdom by saying he measured compassion, not by how many people the government helps, but by how many people don’t need the help. And he succeeded in that vision by presiding over an economy that grew massively – with net job creation of more than 16 million during his presidency.
In the Year of Our Lord, 2015 and of Our Independence, 239
 By Gary Hunt   --American Politics

Two hundred and thirty-nine year ago, a handful of men, expressing the sentiments that had already been expressed in over ninety similar declarations, committed to paper a consolidation of those documents that had preceded it, and the will of the people of the 13 British colonies of North America.

After over five years of combat, rag-tag farmers, fighting against the greatest military force in the world at that time, prevailed in a war they believed, with honor, to be “the right thing to do.”
