Wake the Church | What does LaVoy Finicum and Rand Paul have in common? They both are recent casualties of anarchist principles taking over the liberty movement. The Ron Paul Revolution: Flash back to the election years of 2008 and 2012, Ron Paul inspired millions of young people to embrace the foun...
Wake the Church | Jerry Falwell, founder of Liberty University and arguably the most powerful political coalition of all time, the Moral Majority would be shaking his head in disbelief had he been still alive and heard Donald Trump refer to "2nd" Corinthians  as "Two" Corint...
Wake the Church | The Food and Drug Administration according to their own website slogan says that they are "Protecting and Promoting Your Health." In actuality they are really only "protecting"  Big Oil, Big Food, and Big Pharma from liability while simultaneously  &qu...
Wake the Church | In the summer of 1776 when the Second Continental Congress came together and finally decided that they had no other recourse but to commission Thomas Jefferson to write up the first draft of the Declaration of Independence there was only three things to consider.
Wake the Church | At risk of pointing out the obvious, the political climate today has become extremely volatile and explosive in nature. On all sides of the political spectrum we see people everywhere branding the opposition as the devil incarnate and the source of all things evil in the world. The...
Wake the Church | We all remember in the lead up to Obama's inauguration the comments he made during his campaign about rereading Lincoln's writings and the allusions he made about himself as to how he intended to rule the nation as Lincoln ruled. In fact, in what can no longer be considered...
Wake the Church | It seems once again Ron Paul is being attacked by big publications like the Guardian, even in retirement he simply can't promote liberty without the internationalists taking issue. So what is the tactic they are using this time? Apparently his Homeschool Curriculum is being wri...

Infowars | Infowars news on the NDAA dention bill being signed into law.

WSJ | A pattern of governance has emerged in Washington that departs substantially from that envisaged in our Constitution. Under our basic concept of governance: (1) a president and vice president are elected; and (2) the departments of government are staffed by constitutional officers including secretaries, undersecretaries, assistant secretaries and others who are nominated by the president and confirmed for service by the consent of the Senate. They are publicly accountable and may be called to testify under oath about their activities.

Wake the Church | Have you ever wondered which broad general law Americans are under?  Some people answer this question by saying they are under statues/laws passed by Congress, State legislatures and cities and counties, or perhaps interpretations of laws by courts. If you are a Christian you would likely answer the question by saying that you are obligated to follow God's laws the moral laws called the ten commandments and the two great laws that Jesus gave commanding us to love God and our neighbor.  However, all of us as Americans have also consented to be bound knowing or unknowingly by many private contracts that we have been placed under by our parents or that we have voluntarily entered into as adults. 

Politico | The 29-year-old daughter of President George W. Bush announces in a web video posted late Monday that she supports same-sex marriage. “I’m Barbara Bush and I’m a New Yorker for marriage equality,” she says. “New York is about fairness and equality. And everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love.”

Infowars.com | The Obama administration is busy attempting to pass legislation that would give the President a kill switch for the Internet in the United States while at the same time decrying Egyptian authorities for shutting down the Internet in a bid to deflate the unfolding revolution against Hosni Mubarak. The reason is simple – the government fears an Egypt-style revolt occurring in the U.S. and wants to block access to the world wide web if and when it happens.

Washington Examiner | New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg may prefer "No Labels" but in his case, I think "gun grabber" is a pretty fitting one. As part of his misguided crusade to tighten up gun laws nationally, The New York Times reports that Hizzoner sent undercover cops to gun shows in Arizona and found they were violating the law:

Rawstory | Tea party activists in Tennessee are pushing state legislators to amend curriculum in a way that eliminates criticisms of the Founding Fathers' treatment of Native Americans and holding of slaves, according to a news item.

TFOT | “Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them;
and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.
The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
– Frederick Douglass On the afternoon of September 11, 2001, when we were all scurrying about like so many headless chickens, an old friend in Arizona sent an absolutely prophetic email. The subject line read: “They want you to panic…”

Washington Post | The federal government has repeatedly violated legal limits governing the surveillance of U.S. citizens, according to previously secret internal documents obtained through a court battle by the American Civil Liberties Union.In releasing 900 pages of documents, U.S. government agencies refused to say how many Americans' telephone, e-mail or other communications have been intercepted under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act - or FISA - Amendments Act of 2008, or to discuss any specific abuses, the ACLU said. Most of the documents were heavily redacted.

Huffington Post | These days, when we think of George W. Bush, we think mostly of what a horrible mess he made of the economy. But his even more tragic legacy is the loss of our moral authority, and the transformation of the United States of America from global champion of human rights into an outlaw nation. History is likely to judge Bush most harshly for two things in particular: Launching a war against a country that had not attacked us, and approving the use of cruel and inhumane interrogation techniques.

ZeroHedge | A rather indicative poll released by Rasmussen earlier this week finds that a majority of Americans (44%) now believe that the government operates outside the confines of the Constitution, compared to just 39% who believe government does not take liberties with the precepts laid out by the founding fathers (and 17% were busy watching dancing with the stars to have an opinion either way). Some other unflattering findings on US democracy: "Earlier surveys have shown that just one-in-five voters believe that the government today has the consent of the governed.

Current | State Representative John LaBruzzo of Metairie said many of his constituents are tired of paying for children from poor families and that is why he is considering proposing legislation that would pay women on government assistance $1,000 if they choose to be sterilized.

WorldNetDaily | A surging third-party candidate for Colorado governor says one of the first things he'd do if elected is to take a strong stance against federal intrusion by telling the Obama administration to "go pound sand" with its stimulus money. The comment came today from Tom Tancredo, the outspoken former congressman, who was interviewed on Glenn Beck's radio program.
