Kamala Harris Is An Anchor Baby, Not A ‘Natural Born Citizen’ Of The United States

From our perspective, the circumstances of Kamal Harris’s birth were a form of birth tourism where the child is born in the geographic confines of the United States for the sole purpose of obtaining American citizenship and then whisked off to another country, only to return when and if being an American is economically advantageous.

The MSM And Four Anti-American Congresswomen

Being an “American” requires more than simply being born here or otherwise qualifying for United States citizenship – it requires allegiance to a certain and quite definite set of principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Representative Omar and her posse all took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, but we see no evidence that they and their media defenders actually hold any allegiance to its principles.

Google Discrimination Against Conservatives No Longer A ‘Myth’

“You can’t trust the human judgment of Google’s Trust and Safety team,” said a source at Google. If that didn’t come through loud and clear from Google internal memos, the plain words of Google employees confirms it and will send a chill down the spine of every person in any country who values the principles of free expression, religious liberty and freedom of association.

100 Years Of Teaching Children Lies About America

How did we get to a place where 64 percent of the men and women defending our country believe it is the source of most of the world’s ills? Over the next month we are going to explore that question, and the first part of the answer to that question is that our education system has become a vehicle for teaching children to despise their own country, its founders and its founding principles. #theLeftLies

The Declaration of Independence Was More Radical Than Any of the Men Who Signed It

Jay Cost, National Review

While it is true that the Declaration was a statement of revolt by men of privilege against those with even more privilege, that is hardly the full story, and it elides why we still mark the occasion annually. The argument that the signers made to justify their revolution was an argument against all forms of governmental privilege. And in this way, the Declaration is more radical than the individual men who wrote it or signed it, for it let loose upon the world a new way of ordering society itself.

If We Erase Our History, Who Are We?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Our new America is to be a land where all races, tribes, creeds and cultures congregate, all are treated equally, and all move ever closer to an equality of results through the regular redistribution of opportunity, wealth and power. We are going to become “the first universal nation.” “All men are created equal” is an ideological statement. Where is the scientific or historic proof for it? Are we building our utopia on a sandpile of ideology and hope?

Pulling Down Confederate Statues Does Nothing to Change Society

William Murchison, The American Spectator

The American slavocracy was large; it was powerful. Among its members: George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, with their large monuments and even larger legacies. What makes Robert E. Lee a likelier target than the father of our country? This business of digging up the dead and exhibiting their shortcomings has no predictable end. Today’s heroes and heroines become fair game for great-grandkids: topics for future ridicule and disrespect. Seldom in our history — alas — has the counsel to look before you leap seemed more relevant, or more ignored, than right now.

Is the Second Amendment Only for the Elite?

The Framers of the Constitution did not reserve the right of self-defense to those elite members of society whose position or wealth provides them with armed guards. When the courts fail to enforce the promises of the Constitution, then it is up to the legislature to act. We urge Congress to take up and pass a national concealed carry bill.

What Did the Founders Have to Say About Term Limits?

Jarrett Stepman, CNS News

Term limits for legislators has produced mixed results, but perhaps limits on the bureaucracy—which is neither constitutional, nor democratic—should be the next step for those who want to return to the Constitution and a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

God, Classrooms and Property Rights

When the Founders proclaimed that our rights came from our Creator, no future president or governing body could ever change, or rescind them, because they did not render them. This act ensured that our property rights were free from seizure... if we paid attention.

Unions Plan Far-Left “National Day of Disruption” Today

The irony of today’s protests is that by demanding that illegal aliens be allowed to remain in the workforce the protesters are protesting in favor of one of the greatest wage depressing factors in today’s economy.

The Phony Recount: The Far-Left’s Real Strategy

Of course, it is easier to blame hacking or some kind of vote fraud than it is for Democrats to look in the mirror and honestly assess why they were so decisively defeated, but that’s not what is really going on here.

The Real Goal of the Anti-Trump Riots – Eliminate the Electoral College and the Constitution Part Two of Two

To understand the Electoral College one must realize that the Founders considered the states as the dominate power in the nation. The great mistake Electoral College opponents make is to believe the President was supposed to be elected by the people. It was never the plan.

Will The Supreme Court Elect Donald Trump President Today?

Today the Supreme Court hears the challenge to Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign on the issue if illegal immigration, and being the message carrier for America’s forgotten country class voters on that issue has sustained Trump through a series of blunders that would have destroyed any other candidate. Will the Supreme Court rein-in Obama, or will the people have to have the ultimate say at the ballot box?

PATRIOTS vs. POLITICIANS 2015

What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism - even American citizenship are taboo in today's school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science and the Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys.

Why We Need James Otis

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, The American Thinker

John Adams wrote about James Otis’ fiery argument in court against the Writs of Assistance in 1761: “[T]he child independence was then and there born.” A 1783 eulogy poem written by Thomas Dawes described Otis as “first in patriot fame.”

Five myths about the Founding Fathers

Newt Gingrich, The Washington Post

From Athens and Rome to the present day, all great societies have founding myths — stories they tell themselves about who they are and where they came from. Perhaps because the United States is younger than most nations (239 years old on Saturday), our founding is among the best-documented; here are a few of the biggest myths about the Founding Fathers.

Ben Carson Talk Resonates with Christian Conservatives

William Petroski, Des Moines Register

Dr. Carson called for a renewal of the principles of the founding fathers and support for the idea that the U.S. is a Judeo-Christian nation. He insisted that efforts must be undertaken to improve the nation's education system, curb the federal deficit and reform the tax system.

How Not to Lead the U.S. in World Affairs

David Corbin and Matt Parks, The Federalist

Now that Senate Repubs. have helped repel the Senate Dems’ war on free political speech, they should move on to another important task–helping to guide the American ship of state abroad, using the moral and political compass given to them by our Founding Fathers.
