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.

Country First

Jan 20, 2009 — Jim ONeill

The United States of America has a new Commander and Chief.  A new President that I did my best to see defeated in his bid for the Presidency.  So, how am I dealing with it?  How do I feel about it?

A Birthday Gift: The 11th Commandment

Dec 24, 2008 — Jim ONeill

In the hustle and bustle of the season it’s all too easy to forget the sacred event around which the holiday hoopla whirls—the birth of Christ.

She Sells to Sea-Thugs by the Seashore

Nov 29, 2008 — Jim ONeill

imageWhat’s the story with those pirates off the Horn of Africa?  Who’s behind it?  Where do they come from, and where do they go?  How do they do it, and how do they get away with it?  Why isn’t something being done about it?  What IS being done about it?  This article will attempt to answer those questions.

First, some facts: So far this year there have been 95 attempted ship seizures by pirates in the waters around the Horn of Africa, 39 of them successful.  Besides the ships, there are presently around 268 merchant seamen being held for ransom in Somalia.  The pirates have been paid around 30 million dollars this year in extortion fees.  They recently demanded 25 million dollars for the oil tanker Sirius Star.

Tough Love

Nov 8, 2008 — Jim ONeill

The Republican Party got what it deserved, and it needs a thorough, rigorous, and long-overdue #-kicking from top to bottom.  True, we just got one, compliments of the Democrats, but I’m talking about an in-house job.

Stand Up and Vote!

Nov 4, 2008 — Jim ONeill

With the election at hand, I thought that a few historical quotes might be inspirational as we “gird our lions” and prepare to vote.

A Salute to Integrity

Nov 3, 2008 — Jim ONeill

Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.—From the SPJ’s Code of Ethics

Integrity – now there’s a concept.

Don’t Vote for Obama by Default

Nov 2, 2008 — Jim ONeill

“If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”Abraham Lincoln

When Obama says that he wants to “spread the wealth around” we can, for once, take him at his word.
