Most of my life I’ve couldn’t understand those that advocate policies or actions that obviously endanger the ongoing concern of our American Republic and Liberty for mankind. Now I realize my naïveté. Continue reading “America or Foreign Force and Influence”
Do followers of Islam who come to America wish to become Americans? To assimilate is to “become” American. One can immigrate, not assimilate, and therefore remain “alien.” Americans are individuals who agree with, believe in, support, and wish to further the foundational principles of our nation. The Principles of liberty and self determination described and enumerated in our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. Immigration does not ensure assimilation nor prevent conquest. Continue reading “Islam: Assimilation or Conquest? Britain’s lessons”
Joe is correct:
Combating Modern Radical islam
- in speaking truth to Islam,
- that Sharia is the political and legal implementation,
- why America’s Left supports Sharia and America’s civilizational destruction, and
- where America and western civilization are now.
Now there is a haunting public call with apparent support for Marxism via socialism. A “new” Americanized “ism” to “give” free college, free healthcare, and a living wage. Those who make these unicorn promises know what they do. Do their supporters understand the requirements? Marxism is the umbrella from which socialism, communism, and fascism are born. These 3 ism’s are merely different paths to the same endpoint. Control and domination of everything and everyone: from your personal healthcare to the kind of toilet and light bulb you are allowed to use. Marxism requires, mandates, a break in civil society. Marxism destroys conscience and free choice – civility – among neighbors and friends. Why? Legalized theft, control, and favoritism. Continue reading “Ordinary men ? Perpetrators? Silent majority?”

Who truly decides who the President, or Senator, or Congressional Representative will be? Those who vote, or, those who determine who the voters will be allowed to vote for?
How would “one” pre-determine the outcome of an election?
Determine who votes, or,
determine who the voters will choose from?
In 2012, how many “individuals” decided WHO would be a candidate in the Federal November election? Continue reading “Republic lost? Harvard Law Professor Lessig explains:”
Treason? What is it? Why do we moderns never hear any discussion of Treason? Why is the very concept of Treason outside the realm of possibility in the common American’s mind? On the other hand, why is McCarthyism “known” to all Americans and thrown about casually?
“Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah” attributed to “Hamas MTV,” and then states, “That’s His Jihad. What’s yours?”
NEW YORK – A federal judge on Tuesday ordered New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to display on its buses a controversial ad that refers to Muslims killing Jews, rejecting the argument that the ad could incite terrorism or imminent violence.
US District Judge John Koeltl in Manhattan said the ad from the American Freedom Defense Initiative, referred to by both sides as the “Killing Jews” ad, was protected speech under the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Continue reading “Ad in New York, “Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah””
Truth. What is True? Can Truth change depending upon a person’s point of view? Can Truth change depending on what a person “feels”? Can Truth be one thing for one person, and at the exact same time regarding the exact same occurrence and relationship; be something different for another person? Will you consider these questions after referencing the definition from a dictionary written nearly 200 years ago; the 1828 edition of Merriam-Websters? Continue reading “TRUTH, what is true?”
Who is truly ignorant? Those who accept the actions of others as truth? Those who accept the words of others as truth? When words are contradicted by actions taken, what should one believe is truth?
Answer: When actions conflict with words, then actions are Truth. When words are confirmed with action, then those words become Truth. It is ignorant to choose to believe words which are contradicted by actions. It is also ignorant to disbelieve words that are confirmed with actions. Continue reading “Ignorance: words, actions, and truth”
Jihad vs. Crusades
(620 ad – currently) vs. (1090 ad – 1260ad)
currently practiced vs. ended centuries ago
to kill, rape, or enslave vs. to free Christians enslaved by Muslims
Over 1,000,000 Europeans enslaved over 1400 years by Muslims waging Jihad.
Watch Professor’s video graphically explain the hundreds of battles waged by Muslims against the world and the West.
Words and phrases describe or trigger thoughts and beliefs in our minds. Thoughts, beliefs, conceptualizations from our knowledge based in education, learning and experiences. Words trigger all kinds of good or bad responses and feelings. For example, one could use the phrase a “polar wind” instead of a “north wind.” A “north wind” brings to mind “chilly” or “cold” weather requiring a windbreaker or “hoodie”. However a “polar wind” brings images of snow, ice, freezing temperatures that require a parka with boots and gloves.

Continually I realize how ignorant I am! Every person requires foundations built with knowledge of eternal principles. Basic requirements for understanding and wisdom. Can one contextualize the myriad of choices and results in our world without the basic tools that allow one the ability to “see” reality, truth and consequences? Virtue. What is virtue? Why is virtue important? Look up Virtue’s definition. Professor Esolen eloquently illuminates how ridiculous the current “popular” view of sexuality is, with his essay hosted at “The Public Discourse.” Continue reading ““Where is the Virtue” by Anthony Esolen”
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
In order to understand “Right” and/or “Privilege”, one must understand their individual definitions and then compare and contrast them. My previous post has Webster’s 1828 definition of “Right”.
Is a privilege something we are all born with? Is privilege something that is given to us by others: men, or governments?
Can every individual be granted and enjoy the same, or equal, privilege at the same time?
In a nation where “all men are created equal”, can privileges exist justly?
Joe’s previous post and comments caused me to begin pondering the concept of Rights: what Rights are and where Rights come from. (This is the first post pondering this subject, there will be 1 or more to follow.)
In 1828, Noah Webster published (click title and link to online version.) Continue reading “RIGHT, as defined in 1828 by Noah Webster”
