Denial of the existence of Objective Truth & Fixed Principles

Progressive Education & Bad Philosophy Corrupted The People & Undermined U.S. Constitution

Publius Huldah

Throughout human history, the prevailing belief system changes from time to time & place to place; most people unthinkingly absorb whatever happens to be the prevailing dogma of their time & place. Here, I will show the radical differences between the philosophy of our Founding Era and the philosophy of today. And when I have done so, you will understand why our Country is declining and what you can do about it. In a nutshell, the Enlightenment philosophy of our Founding Era, which was based on Reason and the recognition of the existence of Fixed Principles, was taken away from us; and replaced with the subjective philosophies of Pragmatism & Existentialism, both of which reject Reason and deny the existence of Objective Truth & Fixed Principles. These are now the prevailing dogma of our Time; and unless we promptly repudiate them, we will fall.

Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, & John Jay (authors of The Federalist Papers), and others at the Federal Convention of 1787, embodied the best aspects of The Age of Enlightenment. They were well educated, exquisitely knowledgeable in statecraft & political philosophy, embraced the concepts of Objective Reality & Fixed Principles, knew Logic, and could think. George Washington, a man renowned for his Moral Character, which was based on Judeo-Christian ideals, presided over the Convention.  Read More

Duped! Relentless Marxist Deception

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” Norman Thomas, former U.S. Socialist Party president candidate

Those of my age—I am in my seventies—have a strong recall of the Cold War, fought from the end of World War Two in 1945 until the fall of the infamous Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989 and the subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. We grew up knowing that the Communists—Marxists—were the enemy.

All throughout that period, American liberals—Leftists—did what they could to ridicule efforts to rid the government of Communists, attacked those like Sen. Joseph McCarthy who spoke out against them, defended the likes of Fidel Castro who turned Cuba into a prison-state, and worked to “improve” U.S.-Soviet relations.

A book I wish everyone would read, liberals and conservatives alike, “Dupes” by Paul Kengor, went into a second printing in January of this year (ISI Books, Intercollegiate Studies Institute, Wilmington, DE). Kengor, a PhD, is a professor of political science at Grove City College. His book runs just over 600 pages, all thoroughly documented, and tells the history of the effort to impose communism on America and worldwide, dating back to the Bolshevik revolution in 1917.  Read More

NRA: The Truth About Arms Trafficking in Mexico

… and the lies designed to demonize YOUR guns

Yesterday we reported that the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) has been caught red-handed actively aiding criminals in the illegal export of firearms (including 50 caliber rifles!) from the US to Mexican drug gangs.

At least one of these ATF-facilitated weapons turns out to have been used to murder a US border patrol agent.

Gun store owners warned the ATF about what was going on.

They were ignored.

ATF agents on the ground warned their superiors.

They were told to “shut up” and follow orders and that the orders came from the top, straight from Bushbama’s Department of Justice.

So what exactly did these government criminals have in mind when they enabled the flow of US weapons to Mexico?

Well, if you’ve been listening to Osama Bushbama and his fellow anti-2nd amendment nuts over the last few years, they’ve been singing the song that: “90% of the guns that criminals in Mexico have come from the US.”

There’s just one problem with that story: It happens to be a straight up lie.

But it looks like Bushbama & Company have been doing their best behind the scenes to make it so by ordering ATF agents in the field (via the Department of Justice) to stand down and let illegal weapons exports flow unimpeded to Mexico.

Here’s the all-important back story that no one is connecting to this scandal. (From our friends at 2nd Amendment TV)

Expanded Federal Powers by Legal Interpretation

By J.B. Williams

The current daily federal assault on state and individual rights has nearly every state legislature and governor scrambling to figure out what their state rights really are and how to assert them, before state sovereignty is completely eliminated under the assumed powers of so-called Federal Supremacy.

Unlike federal legislators, state legislators swear an oath to protect and preserve the rights of their states and establish state policy on behalf of state citizens. They are obligated to live within the confines of the US Constitution in so doing, but their primary oath is to the people of their individual state, not the federal government.

Yet many state officials have a convoluted understanding of their oath and obligations, claiming the existence of states’ rights, but no right or means to assert these rights.  Read More


Call to Arms!

By One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet

Now, as during the Vietnam war, it seems that the most dangerous enemy we have is our very own Government. When I was in Vietnam, I didn’t have the assistance that was required to fulfill my mission due to incompetent leaders. But now we will not be taking orders from untruthful, untrained, unqualified, and unscrupulous leaders. This time we will win because we are the best trained, the best experienced, and the best lead.. Just as those who fought in the Revolutionary War, we definitely have the attitude edge. Back then, it was “Don’t Tread on Me.” The modern version is “Don’t **** with Me”, but for a ‘G’ rating we’ll stick with “Don’t Mess with Me!”

We are being backed up against a wall because the Federal Government refuses to enforce the laws that are on the books. We have an illegal immigration problem that has become a national nightmare. On top of that, we have an illegal Muslim immigrant occupying the presidency. And then we have an Attorney General who called the New Black Panthers “My people.”

Okay, I can play that game too. All of the Vietnam Vets, and everyone else who is willing to stand with me to defend the Constitution, are my people and my people are mighty upset with the Joint Chiefs of Staff for allowing LTC Lakin to be carted off to jail, as if he were a common criminal, for lawfully asking to see the putative President’s long- form birth certificate, for which every Secretary of State should have asked in 2008.

The bugles are sounding. Time to muster. Front and center. Present arm!  Read More
