The Wall Street Journal and Unalienable Rights

image“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” - From the United States Declaration of Independence

It has been evident for some time that the liberal LSM (Lame Stream Media)—what Glenn Beck calls the “Fringe Media”—are out of step, out of line, and out of time.

So what to replace them with?

Conservative media, of course.  And this is as good a time as any for me to discuss the term “conservative.”

Taking Back America II

Sep 29, 2009 — Jim ONeill

Phyllis Schlafly, Jim O'Neill
Phyllis Schlafly and CFP columnist Jim O’Neill.

“A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.” —Benjamin Franklin

In this article I’ll finish discussing the HTBA (How to Take Back America) conference that I wrote about in my previous article.

On Saturday, the final day of the conference, speeches were given by Mike Huckabee, Phyllis Schlafly, Janet Porter, and House Representatives Michelle Bachman, Trent Franks, and Tom McClintock.

In any other venue, each of the talks that these individuals gave, would have been considered the keynote speech, and the highlight of the event.  At the HTBA conference however, there was a plethora of oratorical excellence.

Taking Back America

Sep 26, 2009 — Jim ONeill

imageSt. Louis, Missouri—The How to Take Back America Conference got underway here today at the Frontenac Hilton.  It is sponsored by Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, which she founded in 1967. 

This year’s assemblage has gathered together a number of different organizations with a unified focus of love for God and America.  It is the largest Eagle Forum convention ever held.

Things got underway early this afternoon with a prayer, and songs performed by Rick Heil, the lead singer for the popular contemporary Christian band, Sonic Flood.

H1N1, Global Conspiracies, and Amerikan Gulags

image“Out of these troubled times…a new world order—can emerge….”—George H. W. Bush 9/11/90

“In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”—Thomas Jefferson

The Far Left has always been fond of social engineering, and one of their pet projects has historically been population control.

Rep. Joe Wilson, Tea Party Numbers, and Excited Utterances

Sep 16, 2009 — Jim ONeill

So how many people really attended the 9/12 Tea Party in Washington, D.C.?  While it was occurring, Glenn Beck reported that around 65,000 people were there (although he said it with an “I don’t believe it, and neither should you,” look on his face.

Soros: Republic Enemy #1

Sep 15, 2009 — Jim ONeill

George Soros, Photoshopped by Brian Thompson“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”—George Soros

“George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and
—Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson

Is it possible to lay the global financial meltdown,  the radicalizing of the Democratic Party, and America’s moral decline, at the feet of one man? 

It is indeed possible. 

If George Soros isn’t the world’s preeminent “malignant messianic narcissist,” he’ll do until the real thing comes along.  Move over, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot.  There’s a new kid on the block.

If At First You Don’t Secede…

Sep 5, 2009 — Jim ONeill

“Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason?  Why if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”—Ovid (43 BC—circa 17 AD)

Last winter the predictions of Russian analyst Igor Panarin made quite a splash.  It may prove salutary to revisit Panarin’s forecasts.  Because of the economic crisis, Obama-Care, et al., things tend to get lost in the shuffle.

The American Revolution II

Sep 3, 2009 — Jim ONeill

The American Revolution“Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?” - John Page (1744-1808)

The above words are taken from a letter that John Page wrote to Thomas Jefferson.  Page was referring to the first American Revolution.  We are now participating in the second American Revolution—and this one is every bit as important as the first. 

Page’s question remains a pertinent one. 

The left-wing has taken to disdainfully calling us several names: “Birth-ers” because we seek the truth about Obama’s legitimacy to be POTUS, and they call us “Death-ers” because we tell the truth about their plans for government-run abortion and euthanasia “clinics.”

Playing the Race Card, Again, and Again, and…

Sep 1, 2009 — Jim ONeill

image“Instead of a multicultural tableau of beaming young idealists on screen, we see ugly scenes of mostly older and white malcontents, disrupting forums where others have come to actually learn something.  Instead of hope, we get swastikas, death threats and T-shirts proclaiming “Proud Member of the Mob.” —New York Times writer Maureen Dowd describing a town hall meeting.

“On an altar of prejudice we crucify our own, yet the blood of all children is the color of God.”—Don E. Williams Jr.

Conservatives seem to catch on pretty quickly to the fact that they are not fascists, but our liberal friends seem to have a hard time wrapping their heads around the concept.  So, for their sake—one last time.

Support Fox News and Glenn Beck

Aug 28, 2009 — Jim ONeill

image“Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable—a most sacred right—a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world.” —Abraham Lincoln

The battle lines continue to be drawn, and in this article I will discuss one that you can, and should, draw now.

Glenn Beck ought to get the Medal of Freedom, and Fox News deserves America’s heart-felt gratitude.  Without Fox News, and Beck in particular, we would largely be in the dark regarding what is transpiring in our country.

The Storm Upon Us

Aug 27, 2009 — Jim ONeill

image“Find out just what the people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.”
— Frederick Douglass, civil rights activist, (circa 1818-1895)

One of three possible scenarios is currently being played out in the United States.

Against the Rulers of Darkness

Aug 22, 2009 — Jim ONeill

image“We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age.”  (Eph. 5:12)
[To Lucifer]  ..the first radical known to man, who rebelled against the establishment, and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom.”
From the Dedication page of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals”

We are involved in a war.  It is a war between differing political ideologies, mind-sets, and world-views.  It is a war that has been going on for millennia, and it is now rushing towards a conclusion—or at least the end of the act.

Treason, Eugenics, and Left-wing Lunacy

Aug 16, 2009 — Jim ONeill

History of bloodshed, terror, and incompetence of the Collectivist Left“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  ...It must be fought for, protected, and handed on…or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States when we were free.” — Ronald Reagan

“I prefer the word Progressive, which has a very American meaning.”—Hillary Clinton 2007 (after being asked if she considered herself a Liberal)

The Fascist/Communist Left has a history they are at pains to ignore, gloss over, and whitewash from our collective memory.  They sweep their failures under the rug, and pretend that they never had anything to do with them—and can you blame them?

Seek Truth and Pursue it Steadily

Aug 12, 2009 — Jim ONeill

image“There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily.”—George Washington

I’d like to share with you a couple of quotes by dictators from the Far Left.  First, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it” —Adolf Hitler

And here’s one by Lenin: “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”

The Great Patriotic Revolt

Aug 9, 2009 — Jim ONeill

imageDid you hear Nancy Pelosi say that the “astro-turf” mobs at the town hall meetings were wearing swastikas?  I understand the reference to astro-turf—because we are tough, resilient, and tenacious—but swastikas?  Please.

Hopefully, you have educated yourselves regarding fascism, and are aware that fascism is a doctrine that is embraced only by the Left.

Communist Russia, and Fascist Germany, were not the ideological polar-opposites that the Left has propagandized them as being for generations.  Fascism and Communism are similar collectivist doctrines.

The Crisis

Aug 6, 2009 — Jim ONeill

Attentive readers will remember that I talked about the “moral equivalent of war” in my last article.  I’m going to start this article out by discussing that phrase, and its implications, in a little more depth. 

What is it about war, that the Left could possibly find alluring?  Quite simply, it’s the fact that mobilizing the population for war enables grand social schemes to be implemented.

Obama-Care, Euthanasia, and The Boiled Frog Syndrome

Jul 30, 2009 — Jim ONeill

imageWe’re going to be covering quite a bit of ground in this article:  I’ll be discussing “Glen Beck’s Common Sense,” Ezekiel Emanuel (Dr. Death), Collectivism,  AARP, Sorelian myths, the Fascist Left, and The Boiled Frog Syndrome, among other things—so let’s get started.

Sarah Palin, Sally Quinn, and the Fascist Left

Jul 11, 2009 — Jim ONeill

Sally Quinn’s article about Governor Palin’s resignation announcement borders on the insulting.  Actually, it does more than “border”—it thrusts deeply into insulting territory.

Ms. Quinn says, in effect, that if Palin would just be a good Christian housewife, and stay home like good Christian wives are supposed to, then the attacks against Palin would stop.  It’s all Palin’s fault that she’s been so viciously attacked, so says Sally.

The American Spirit

Jul 3, 2009 — Jim ONeill

by Emmet Fox (1886-1951)

The task which each American has before them is to realize the American Dream in their own life, to the utmost that they are able, by making themselves personally free; free in body, and soul, and spirit.

Rules for Radicals: A Blurred Vision

Jun 14, 2009 — Jim ONeill

imageEveryone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”  Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)

The “guardrails” that have guided our culture towards moral and civil behavior have been removed, and the lines between right and wrong have become blurred.
Senator Joseph Lieberman (From the foreword to Richard Land’s “The Divided States of America?”)

Saul Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals,” first published in 1971, has been read and assimilated by a number of those who espouse a Far Left agenda.  Our current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, wrote her senior thesis on Alinsky while at Wellesley College.  The following excerpt is from that paper.
