Americans Are Losing Their Independence, Must Get Gov’t Under Control

Ed Feulner, CNS News

It is clearly impractical to demand that the federal government immediately withdraw from education, health care, and all the other areas in which its current vast presence is, to the minds of many conservatives, clearly unconstitutional. It is too late, as well as politically impossible, to try to lock that barn door. The intruders are already acting like owners. But we can, and must, try to keep the remaining horses under local control.

Turkey’s Reichstag Fire Moment: Failed Coup Strengthens Erdogan but Weakens Nation

The botched coup is likely to act like the infamous Reichstag fire under the Nazis and accelerate the Erdogan government’s race to the dictatorial bottom. He is likely to become more vindictive and paranoid—understandably so, because he does have enemies everywhere.

Conservatives, I Urge You to Join Me: Unite Behind Trump and Pence

By: Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Friends, we've had our howl of frustration, but this is now a binary choice: Trump and Pence vs. Hillary Clinton.

I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.

Louie Gohmert: America’s Last Hope To Preserve Constitutional Liberty

Charles Hernick: Taking Constitutional Liberty into the Liberal Lion’s Den

Don Beyer is the liberal Democratic incumbent in Virginia’s Eighth Congressional District.  Auto dealer and former Virginia Lt. Governor Don Beyer, is one of the old dogs of Virginia’s jaded liberal establishment. Beyer’s answer to any problem is more government, more taxes and less liberty for Virginians. Charles Hernick looks like exactly the kind of sharp, thoughtful constitutionalist needed to take on the knee-jerk liberal Democratic incumbent.

Obama’s Gun Grab: To Protect Our Liberty We Need More Congressmen Like Mo Brooks

Republican "leaders" gave away their only leverage against Obama when they passed the Omnibus appropriations bill and funded his entire agenda for the rest of his term, and none of them have actually attacked the basic premise of his actions – that government can and should restrict or ban the possession of firearms by ordinary Americans. Leave eloquently opposing that proposition to Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama. Sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

2015: The Year The American Establishment Committed Suicide

As 2015 ends, if you are a normal American, you must conclude that the established institutions of your country are dead or dying – and they are dying not because some outside competitor killed them – they are dead because they killed themselves through their own greed, incompetence and corruption.

Dancing With Corporatists

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Riding the tigers of race and immigration can only end horribly. What would be helpful is a frank discussion of the left’s intention to change the founding principles of America from freedom and liberty to race and class warfare.

Time To Fight: GOP Elites Want The Tea Party Gone

Sam Rolley, Personal Liberty Digest

Rove and the GOP estab. risk alienating conservative Americans in order to support moderate Repub. candidates because they aren’t worried about GOP lawmakers who won’t play ball with Dems. They’re worried about Tea Party conservatives who don’t discriminate in their aim to eliminate wasteful spending and political corruption.

From Our New “What Could Go Wrong” Department

Military robots and drones are becoming “smarter” and more autonomous. Until the scientific and technical geniuses behind the idea of autonomous armed drones also equip them with a foolproof “Constitution chip” Americans should oppose the deployment of such technology.

A Lesson From George Washington's Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport

To George Washington freedom of conscience and religion were natural rights and one of the great achievements of the American Revolution was "no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights..."

The War On Us

Angelo M. Codevilla, Library of Law and Liberty

The Obama Administration is unprecedented in using the federal government to go after ordinary Americans. Even state and local government has used more serious tactics.

Holding Our Friends' Feet to the Fire

Too many otherwise conservative individuals get elected to Congress and soon come to believe that they are “leaders” entitled to uncritical support, instead of “representatives” translating the wishes of “We the People” into policy and action.

Amash Fighting Big Brother NSA

Rep. Justin Amash’s principled stand for liberty and privacy is in stark contrast to the House Republican leadership who have largely ignored the illegal and unconstitutional acts of the Obama security apparatus in favor of a “security at any cost” attitude toward the NSA's domestic surveillance program.
