It’s Time to Save the American Family; A Joyless Experiment Strained to the Limit

Nov 16, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

While it’s true that a Conservative wave just swept the USA in the 2014 elections, the accumulated damage of progressive theory upon the American culture has been nothing short of devastating. The list of areas where Americans are now struggling because of the importation of foreign ideas against American ideals is staggering. The family is probably the most endangered because of the incursion against traditional, biblical and common sense practice. Anti-Americanism has been institutionalized for decades, as a result of creeping Marxism affecting our teachers, instructional materials, and in the minds of the mandarin elites, daily spewing their contempt for tradition into the media, academia, and Hollywood.

Theater of Nonsense: Scurrilous Liberal Mission to Discredit All Opposition

One of the most regrettable—and perhaps wholly inevitable elements of today’s life in the West is the wretched mission of liberals to eradicate any trace of intellectual disagreement with their convictions. In every conceivable arena, any non-conformist theories against progressive shibboleths—such as the current war over global warming—receive the most disrespectful and wholesale trashing.

A Plague on Both Houses: Insane Ebola Policy Exposes American Suicide Culture

Oct 19, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Has America passed the point of no return, where dying cultures arrive when their internal logic and external conversations descends into illiteracy, and then madness? Perhaps. For example, how is it possible that persons fresh from the site of outbreak of one of the world’s worst viruses, simply walk off airplanes into American cities? Or, consider the dangerous, utterly indefensible policy of allowing the border to stay open, and illegal entries to cross, allowed to stay, even when criminal convictions for violent crimes are proved.

History of Non-Resistance: Declaring Government & King All-Powerful

History of Non-Resistance: Declaring Government & King All-Powerful

Having now spent four weeks investigating the history of the Right of Resistance, that is—the right to oppose unjust leaders, we now delve into the deplorable history of the intellectual support of tyranny. It is remarkable that whether these tyranny-loving writers were pseudo-religious, or atheistic, how destructive their approach was towards society.

The Founders Continued the Long British History of Resisting Unjust Authority

The Founders Continued the Long British History of Resisting Unjust Authority

Today’s essay, the last in the history of Resistance Theory, traces the Founder’s use of the right to revolution, famously preserved in the Declaration of Independence. Having examined the early history of the right to oppose unjust leadership, which prepared the way for the American Revolution, we must acknowledge what even the most cursory examination of this right exposes.

The Right to Resist Evil Leaders—The Christian History

Sep 7, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

In this continuing study of the Right of Resistance against unjust authority, we now turn from the Continent, and the Lutheran and Huguenot stories, and examine the U.K.‘s additions. Given the times, and the fact that Europe arose and distinguished itself from Christian origins, it is unsurprising that the Right of Resistance would be justified by biblical arguments. Yet, all these arguments were buttressed by appeals to history, ancient societies, Roman law, and logical propositions.

The Right to Resist Evil Leaders--The Christian History

In the previous article we asked, “Do Americans have a right to oppose unjust authority?” Such a right was obviously assumed by the Founders. We likewise examined whether Christians have such a right, as well. In answer, we found the earliest theories regarding what became Resistance Theory resulted from the assumptions of the Protestant Reformation being applied to society during various crises involving early Protestant communities. Therefore, whether such a right truly exists, the entire theory was proposed by Protestants, using biblical, historic and classical arguments, ostensibly to achieve Christian ends.

The Right to Resist Evil Leaders—The Christian History

Aug 4, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Right of Resistance

Do Americans have a right to oppose unjust authority? Given our history, this right goes without saying. You see, our country was founded by men resisting the unjust rule of Great Britain. More precisely, in one of history’s most famous recitations of the Right of Resistance, the American Declaration of Independence itself says,

Impeaching Obama for Tyranny…Means Finding Political Will, Not the Right “Magic Words”

Jul 13, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Impeaching Obama for Tyranny…Means Finding Political Will, Not the Right Magic Words

Road to Impeachment, Part 1

This is the second in a two-piece article on impeachment of Barack Obama. America is navigating extraordinary travails attempting to adapt to Barack’s increasingly erratic and arbitrary decision-making. This is apparently motivated by his own misbegotten notion he’s a secular prophet who must force America to adapt into his socialistic fantasies. His trashing of the Constitution, ignoring Congress and claiming amnesia on the separation of powers has created a crisis which few on either side seem ready to address.

Impeaching Obama for Tyranny: The Only Way to Salvation

Jul 7, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Centuries ago, just after America won its War of Independence versus King George III, two Europeans giants again battled over liberty versus tyranny. This struggle between Britain and France certainly involved military control of the Continent. But it was also a fight which would determine the nature of global commerce and religion.

Obama’s Treason & the Disgraceful Intellectuals Obscuring his Anti-American Mission

Jun 30, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

What exactly is it about socialism that attracts such illogical, undying, uncritical, and blind devotion—even in the face of overwhelming evidence this theory is utterly flawed? Or, is there some universal rule which dictates that intellectuals, Hollywood players and so-called journalists must be liberal, socialist, Marxist or communists?

Barack & Marx: Why Revolution is the Only Game in Town

Jun 23, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Much like DeQuincy’s autobiographical Confessions of an Opium Eater, a true Marxist is addicted to Revolution. Why? Because only through revolution can a liberal hope to overturn government enough to force his fellow citizens into embracing socialism. But why the desperate demand for all persons to acquiesce to communism? Because Marxism is a religion, and a violently missionary one at that.

Day of Reckoning: Barack, Secular Heretic, Uses Constitution as a Diaper

Jun 15, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Given his astounding indifference, breathtaking incompetence and incomprehensible malevolence towards America’s interest, can Barack Obama be removed from office? The simple answer is, of course—Yes, he could be. Next, yet if Barack’s status, being a member of a historically downtrodden and currently protected group, would keep him from being considered for impeachment, can any other theory be used for removal?

Celebrities Against America: Seven Deadly Sinners

Jun 2, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

It is simply extraordinary the high regard that most celebrities are held in today. Yet, because most Americans receive their information passively, they are unaware that most celebrities are also extremely information-starved persons, as well. Further, many stars never even studied at a university, having left for Hollywood as soon as they could.

Americans no Longer Live in a Scientific Society

May 26, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Although we enjoy deceiving ourselves about how sophisticated today’s American culture is, we no longer even have a scientific society. This means that in the place of careful analysis, unbiased study, or scientific experimentation, meant to purify society with reliable facts—our leaders misuse science as another tool of propaganda to influence public opinion.

Modern Paganism Reveals Storm Clouds Over Democracy

Is Obama a Pagan King in a Land of Yesterdays, Modern Paganism Reveals Storm Clouds Over Democracy

A virulent reborn paganism is sweeping the West and unless strongly challenged, could topple representative, constitutional government.

New American Civic Religion Rejects Christianity—What it Means

May 5, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

A recent event in Los Angeles, California, bizarrely illustrates the madhouse that unfettered application of Political Correctness has created in America. Morality has become a land of shifting sands and anyone can get slapped down like a miscreant at a moment’s notice. A local college sought a commencement speaker for their graduation ceremony.

Easter and the American Tradition of Revival—It Can Happen Again!

Apr 21, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

On Easter, the God of spiritual redemption and revival is celebrated. Coincidentally, no single factor has been more influential in the conception and formation of America, than Christian revivals in US history. The first colonial Americans were religious dissenters and reformers.

Obama & Catastrophe as Public Policy: Marx’s Revolution Cometh

Apr 13, 2014 — Kelly OConnell

Can it possibly come as a shock, given the stunning, leftist trajectory of Obama’s reign—that his current spokesman decorates his house with old USSR posters, and other communist artifacts? In fact, to the extent that Barack’s staff seems to have any ideological bent, it would appear to be communism, and its heroes.

Why Liberalism is Pseudo-Religious Intellectual Poison

Why Liberalism is Pseudo-Religious Intellectual Poison

WHY do liberal folks never get it? Why do a million successive failures not clue them in that their ideas are failure incarnate? These geniuses refuse to amalgamate the raw data laying all around to inexorably force the conclusion that the premises of liberalism are false. Because, much like how poison works—by mimicking the good things our bodies need, but delivering death instead of life—liberalism is a faux religion, a fake ethics. Liberalism causes death.
