Judicial Activism: Why Justices should NOT Usurp Power & Make Laws

American Minute with Bill Federer

Yale President Ezra Stiles stated in 1783:”Most states of all ages… have been founded in rapacity, usurpation and injustice…

The Nimrods… (were) the first invading tyrants of the ancient ages… The spirit of conquest had changed the first governments…

All succeeding ones have in general proved one continued series of injustice, which has reigned in all countries for almost 4,000 years.”[…]

‘We Have to Reassert Citizenship’: Victor Davis Hanson’s Challenge to Americans

I grew up in an era (maybe the last) when citizenship, common courtesy and patriotism meant something. Today those characteristics are being systematically destroyed from the American culture.

'We Have to Reassert Citizenship': Victor Davis Hanson's Challenge to Americans

“The left is not the Democratic Party anymore, and it’s not even the Progressive Party. This is a Jacobin, out of the French Revolution, or proto-Bolshevik party,” says Hanson…

America is Being Sabotaged: Destruction of Prosperity and Freedom is on the Horizon

This article talks about prophecy and some other Biblical things that I normally do not comment on. But with the overall downhill trends I see in America I can not argue with the final premise, the demise of our nation.

To many observers, our Southern border policy is wrong-headed, our Afghanistan withdrawal was a fiasco, and the Democrat party’s $3.5 trillion, 2500-page budget…

The Difference Between a Democracy and a Republic

If you ask Americans to name their country’s form of government, most of them will say they live in a democracy.

However, the real answer is more complicated (and unexpected) than that. Robert George, Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, explains.

George Whitefield & the Great Awakening Revival

American Minute with Bill Federer

I often hear in evangelical circles that we need to pray for revival, I agree, yet if I was a betting man, I would wager greatly that there would be DISAGREEMENT on the nature or means of achieving that revival.

I would suggest it should be done Biblically, like Whitefield (and others of the period) as this quote reminds us:

“It is wonderful to see what a spell he casts over an audience by proclaiming the simplest truths of the Bible

Sarah Edwards, the wife of Jonathan Edwards

George Whitefield had attended Oxford with John and Charles Wesley, who began the Methodist revival movement within the Anglican Church. In 1733, when he finally understood and believed the Gospel, George Whitefield exclaimed: “Joy-joy unspeakable-joy that’s full of, big with glory!” […]

Are Americans okay with losing freedom?

American’s seem to have forgotten their beginnings:

In Congress 04 July 1776 – …We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…

In this week’s episode, Dennis worries about Americans losing their freedom… and their common sense.  He also poses a challenging question: what happens when a society decides that security is more important than liberty?

Why the Ruling ‘Elite’ Is Anti-American

** NOTE ** This is not a knock on the American political system, just the elitist’s who have risen to the top of power within America and oppose the Constitutional Republic which America was founded as.

The modern administrative state is anti-constitutional and directed by an oligarchic ‘elite’ that is corrupt and distant from the people it rules. This Highlight from Hillsdale College’s FREE Online Course, “Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution,” exposes the modern administrative state as the antithesis of Constitutional government. It is unaccountable to American citizens, intrudes on the most minute details of their lives, and is un-interested in protecting their rights.
