Remembering America’s Fallen This Memorial Day

May 30, 2022 by


By Jackson Clark and James Di Pane ~ Many Americans today cannot explain the origins or reasons why we commemorate Memorial Day, though they know it involves a long weekend and hot dogs. The significance of the national holiday is lost amid the distractions of daily life. It’s often associated more with barbecues, swimming pool openings, […]

Patriot Graves

May 29, 2022 by


By Gary Bauer ~ “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” Monday marks Memorial Day, a national observance first known as Decoration Day.

A Flag That’s Still Worth Dying For

July 4, 2021 by


By Michael Reagan ~ Gwen Berry says she knows her history, but she really doesn’t. When hammer-thrower Gwen Berry turned her back on the American flag at the Olympic Trials last weekend, it made me think of Sergeant William Carney. Berry probably doesn’t know who Carney was. Neither, I bet, do the Black Lives Matter […]

Macron’s Insult Doesn’t Even Make Sense

November 16, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Emmanuel Macron attacks Donald Trump: Henry Ergas calls out the hypocrite: Patriotism is… not a virtue one displays in the abstract: there must be something to which one is patriotic. And in the modern world, that is the nation. To be patriotic is, in other words, to love one’s nation. And […]

The Difference Between How Conservatives, Liberals Define Patriotism

December 28, 2017 by


By Jarrett Stepman ~ A new poll by the American Culture & Faith Institute uncovered some interesting—and perhaps worrisome—trends when it comes to how Americans think they can properly support their country. The study found that Americans think patriotism is generally in decline, but we can’t even agree on how to define it, let alone […]

End The NFL

October 3, 2017 by


By Daniel Greenfield ~ An Army recruit starts off with a salary under $20,000. Thousands of active duty military personnel are on food stamps. Millions of veterans rely on them to feed their families and themselves. That’s how we treat the best of us. Here’s how we treat the worst of us. An NFL rookie’s […]

On American Patriotism

September 9, 2010 by


On American Patriotism By Mark Alexander “Citizens by birth or choice of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.” –George Washington The […]

Do The Benefits Of Jihadist Training Camps In America Outweigh The Risks?

October 16, 2009 by


One of our recent articles regarding jihadist training camps here in America stirred up quite a controversy between two individuals who both claim to have been members of America’s intelligence community. One commenter appeared to be trying to make the case that it is better to leave them in place, because the intelligence to be […]

The Department Of Homeland Security Finally Catches Up With The Freedom Medium

October 13, 2009 by


Janet Napolitano and her crew at the Department Of Homeland Security finally found us. She must have stumbled across us, read some of our commentary, watched the Fox News videos, and started to become aware of what we have been talking about for months. And we don’t mind her taking credit for our hard work, we […]

The Unconstitutional Provision In H.R. 3200

August 14, 2009 by


The Obamaites aren’t satisfied with taking health care decisions out of the hands of individuals, they want to enact yet another violation of the U.S. Constitution while they are at it. There are many problems with the health care “reform” bill now working it’s way through the halls of Congress. The provision that perhaps should […]

Only A Racist Would Call Someone A Socialist

August 13, 2009 by


According to the mainstream media, calling someone a Socialist is the same as calling them the “N” word. Are the wheels starting to fall off of the reality bus? Does this mean that the other “N” word “Nazi”, is defined as anyone who doesn’t agree with Nancy Pelosi? This is stretching things far beyond rational […]

The Spirit Of ’76 Is NOT Dead

July 6, 2009 by


On July 4th, we presented an article calling for a Modern-Day Declaration Of Independence. As fate would have it, later that day something happened that made me believe it to be possible. That night, my hope for the future of this country received a real shot in the arm. I don’t put much faith in […]

It’s Time For A New Declaration Of Independence

July 4, 2009 by


Today we mark the anniversary of America’s Declaration of Independence. Fifty-six men signed what what is beyond a doubt one of the greatest political documents ever written. What price did they ultimately pay for this heroic action? During the Revolutionary War, some were captured by the British Army and held as prisoners of war, many […]

Islamists Desecrate American Flag, Crowd Stands And Watches

June 25, 2009 by


When I first saw this video, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Then I thought that it had to be taking place on a deserted side street in some small town. When the camera panned out, and I saw the crowds on the streets of NYC, I was stunned beyond belief. You can’t begin to understand […]

Obama Partisans Threaten “Expose-Obama” Staff

June 25, 2008 by


Obama Approves? Two of the common themes that run through many of the hateful e-mails we receive are; an overt hatred of Patriotism + Christianity & a desire that there actually be LAWS against people who ask legitimate questions or tell the truth about Barack Hussein Obama! Deluged Brown & HIS FAMILY with obscene & threatening calls!
