Rediscovering America

By Craig Shirley

This piece was co-authored by Craig Shirley and Scott Mauer.

Some years ago an angry and frustrated taxpayer flew his private plane into the Internal Revenue Service building in Texas. Most liberals commentators wrung their hands over the act but failed to ask, “Why?” What did the IRS do to so infuriate this taxpayer into taking his own life to make a political statement? During the American Revolution, this would have been considered an act of courage and monuments would have been made to the man. After all, the Framers believed man was more important than institutions. But now it seems like Americans, mostly on the left, forgot what America should be.

New immigrants nothing like the old

By Sammy J. Franklin

One of our faithful readers and supporter forwarded me an email the other day which talks about the immigrants of old, and the new brand of immigrants now entering the United States of America.

Included in the email was a letter written by Rosemary La- Bonte to the editors of a California newspaper in response to an article written by Ernie Lujan, who suggested we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the immigrants of today aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry over the years.

Why the left needs to stop

By Kevin McCullough

Has anybody had enough yet?

They are almost as numerous to keep up with as the number of attacks ISIS related terrorists have launched during the season of Ramadan in 2017.

Left leaning outlet after person after celebrity after elitist wants either Trump, his supporters, or his party’s congressional reps dead. Dead dead... they want them deadest of all the deads.

How stupid are we as Americans

By Sammy J. Franklin

The Muslim wars started in the 7th Century and lasted through the 17th Century. Many will contend it never stopped; the facts below are historically correct.

That is why many of us choke when we hear someone say we will defeat or contain these Islamic terrorists in a few years, or even “30 years” as has been stated.

The liberal media’s double standard

By Bernard Goldberg

In 2011, after a severely mentally ill young man in Tucson, Arizona shot Democratic Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, wounded almost 20 more, and killed six, including a 9-year-old girl, it took the liberal media elite a nanosecond to pin the crime on -- who else? -- conservative Republicans and their supposed “toxic rhetoric.”

While police were still scouring the crime scene, Paul Krugman, The New York Times hard-left columnist wrote: “Where’s that toxic rhetoric coming from? Let’s not make a false pretense of balance: it’s coming, overwhelmingly, from the right.”

The greatest country in the world

By Sammy J. Franklin

Next Tuesday, July 4, 2017, we will celebrate Independence Day – the 241st birthday of these United States of America – the greatest country in the world.

While I was thinking of an appropriate column for Independence, I ran across a column by Bryan Golden, author of “Dare to Live Without Limits” and it filled the bill.

Are we nearing Civil War?

By Pat Buchanan

President Trump may be chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, but his administration is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down.

We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration.

Students can’t pray, mention Jesus

By Sammy J. Franklin

The following story sums up what is wrong in our great Country today. Years ago, liberals began their attempt to remove God from the classroom and out of our schools. And we sat idly by and allowed it to happen.

Today, students are not allowed to bring Bibles to school, pray in public, or do anything which includes the name of Jesus Christ.

The politics racket

By Derek Hunter

Public service is a calling, or so those in it will tell you. What they don’t tell you is it’s also a nice way to make a pretty good living.

It’s well known that politics serves as the siren call for a lot of wealthy people, both those who earned a fortune and those who inherited one. But for every self-made millionaire or Kennedy looking to pass time their circumstances afford them to play at power, there are others who see politics as a way to make their lives better.

Celebrate “Flag Day” by flying flag

By Sammy J. Franklin

Today – June 14th – is Flag Day in the United States and its time to proudly fly your flag even if you don’t on other days. June 14th is the anniversary of the day we officially adopted the stars and stripes as the banner of our country.

Unlike President’s Day or Martin Luther King Day, Flag Day isn’t recognized as a federal holiday. However, many patriotic people choose to plan a celebration regardless, and rightly so.
