Freedom

When We’ve Lost Our Freedom, It’s GAME OVER

  When your freedom is gone, it doesn’t matter who took it or what “ism” they spout. All you see is the gun. Freedom has one foot in the grave in the US and the eventual coup de grâce will amount to a trivial irrelevance. Perhaps it will be the masters of our police state apparatus going full rogue, some sort of outrage by a group the government labels as terrorist, the threat of an epidemic, or something else, but only the stubbornly myopic do not see the totalitarianism on the horizon. – Robert Gore at Straight Line Logic In […]

The Declaration of Independence: As Relevant Today as it was in 1776

Note: This was originally posted on July 4, 2009. It’s Independence Day. I wish you all a great day, and ask you to contemplate the meaning of the holiday. To assist, here is a transcript of the Declaration of Independence. IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, 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 […]

President Obama’s Top Ten Most Divisive and Un-Constitutional Executive Actions

Since he took office in January of 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama has flouted the rule of law which is the bedrock America was founded on. He has visibly encroached upon and exceeded the boundaries set forth in the United States Constitution. Now Obama hasn’t written more executive orders than his predecessors, in fact, in his first five years he is on par with other one term presidents. But in his case,it isn’t the quantity, it’s the quality of the EOs.   The Heritage Foundation has taken the time to compile a list of the top ten most egregious un-Constitutional […]

Freedom’s Just Another Word For Doing What You’re Told

“Liberalism is totalitarianism with a human face.” – Thomas Sowell “The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories. Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree.” – Ajit Pai “The darkness of human nature parades smugly before us calling itself ‘hope and change’.” – Jeffrey T. Brown “Democracy is so overrated.” – Frank Underwood/House of Cards “Who are the Brain Police?” — Frank Zappa I’ve always loved my country — and if I could ever find it again, I still would.  That nation is more than likely gone for good, ground […]

Shutdown Over: Freedom Averted!

Senator McCain is proud to announce that the danger of freedom breaking out is over! Editor’s Note:  This is a fast-moving story and may change before this post is published.  The worldwide headquarters of Manhattan Infidel will stay on top of this story and report further updates.  Unless I can find a hooker.  If  I can find a hooker then the hell with the story. News came from behind the barricades today – the shutdown was over!  The danger of freedom has been averted!  Once again the Federal government will protect us and oversee every aspect of our lives. Many […]

Happy Flag Day, America!

usa as flag

Here, in it’s entirety is Ronald Reagan’s June 14, 1986 weekly radio address. My fellow Americans: “Today we celebrate Flag Day, the birthday of our Stars and Stripes. As we think back over the history of our nation’s flag, we remember that the story of its early years was often one of hardship and trials, sometimes a fight for simple survival. Such is the story behind our Star-Spangled Banner. It was 2 years into the War of 1812, and America seemed to be teetering on the edge of defeat. The British had already taken our Capital and burned the White […]

Are we living in 1984? Rand Paul Thinks so

Rand Paul has a very interesting video regarding our level of freedom.  He asks the question, “Is it 1984 Now?” What do you think?

Tyranny is the type of government our founders rejected

We need to get back to the basics as a people.  With all the scandals, corruption, attacks on our gun rights, attacks on our free speech, attacks on our faith, ignoring the constitution, crushing taxes, usurpations of states rights, suffocating regulations, and government using its institutions to threaten and impose its will on the people we need to find our way back to liberty and reject tyranny.  Take a good look, because this is what a soft tyranny looks like and we own it!.  This is the type of government our Founding Fathers rejected and we too should reject it.  […]

Liberal Loons: Were They Born That Stupid or Did They Have To Work At It?

Most of us on the right of the political spectrum recognize that not all liberals are loons. Most of us are capable of admitting that there are some loons on the right, as well. But, to this humble observer of the asylum. it does seem that the liberals have a disproportionate share of the loons. I came across this liberal loon story at American Thinker. The protagonist in this story is a young woman by the name of Meg Lanker-Simons. She is a student at the University of Wyoming. She is a liberal activist and she writes a popular blog […]

Liberal Blogger, Meg Lanker-Simons Accused of Embracing Leftist Tradition: Stages own Rape Threats

Liberals have a long an historic traduiti0n…of lies and deceit.  We’ve covered quite a bit of that here, especially when they stage their own “atrocities.”  That fine tradition was recently continued by one Meg Lanker-Simons, a liberal blogger, and student at the University of Wyoming.  Viral  Read has more on the story… A student at the University of Wyoming who claimed she was targeted for a Facebook rape threat because she “runs her liberal mouth all the time” faked the threat against herself, police say. Meg Lanker-Simons, 26, has been charged with interference with a police investigation by giving false statement.

Public Schools are Indoctrinating Kids with Anti-Gun Propaganda

They get so many other  things wrong, that I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that public schools are indoctrinating kids into believing that  the Second Amendment means not a whole lot.  In fact, they are teaching them that the Second is pretty useless indeed.  Girls Just Wanna Have Guns has more… Boibeaux’s son is an eighth grader at Northeast Middle School. On Monday his social studies teacher gave students a worksheet titled, ‘The Second Amendment Today.’ “The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms,” the worksheet states.

Margaret Thatcher, The Iron Lady, Dead at Age 87

Margaret Thatcher, the so called “Iron Lady,” had passed away at age 87.  The UK’s first female prime minister, she was in power at a pivotal time in the UK’s history, restoring the economy and international prestige of her nation.  She was seen as a partner with Ronald Reagan in confronting Soviet Communism, winning her the title, “Iron Lady,” from the Soviet Press.  The Daley Gator has more… Margaret Thatcher Dies After Stroke – Sky News Britain’s first and only female prime minister Baroness Thatcher has died at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke. Lady Thatcher’s children Mark […]

Obama/Holder’s War on Small Business and Their Gestapo Like Tactics

Last year on the campaign trail, Obama let his slip show when he said that if you owned a small business, you didn’t build that. With absolutely zero experience in the private sector, our president has no idea what it means to risk your own, hard earned money, time and good name to start a business. Being steeped in the politics of Marx, Obama actually loathes folks that have made it on their own, with no help or thanks from the federal government. His education in Alinsky’s tactics, the MSM’s blind devotion and a dumbed-down electorate have all come together […]

The power of words: Common Sense

Note that this post was originally published in 1-9-13 On this day in 1776 Thomas Paine published his pamphlet “Common Sense.”  This 47-page pamphlet made the arguments in favor of American independence.  Mr. Paine’s use of plain language spoke to the common people of America. It was also the first published pamphlet that openly argued for independence.  The powerful words of Mr. Paine helped galvanize a movement that before Common Sense was published was a scattered grumbling at best. Paine fundamentally changed the tenor of colonists’ argument with the crown when he wrote the following:  “Europe, and not England, is […]

No more playing nice in the defense of liberty and freedom

Unlike most conservatives and tea party patriots, I liked the tax deal- because I thought it was a good first step. Now that tax rates for some of us have been permanently frozen at the lower rate, our elected leaders can go about working to get the tax rates for the rest back to the lower level that they were at for a decade, and lower them for the everyone else. Now is the time to keep fighting to lower taxes and push for everyone- poor and rich, liberal and conservative, black and white, man and women- to have lower […]

Unions Attempt to Embrace Democracy, by Preventing Vote

If you recall, the unions love the chant, “this is what democracy looks like.”  But they seem to not understand what democracy is, as they seem to try very hard to stop actual votes from being taken.  We saw that in Wisconsin, and now, in Michigan.  The Blaze has more… Police used pepper spray Thursday to subdue protesters trying to rush the Michigan state Senate after Gov. Rick Snyder and other Republican leaders announced they would press for quick approval of right-to-work legislation limiting union powers. “When several of the individuals rushed the troopers, they used chemical munitions to disperse […]

Resource Post: Agenda 21 Explained

What is Agenda 21?  How does it affect you?  All that and more is in the following video… Agenda 21 is perhaps the most stealthy threat to freedom, if not life itself.  So, while the video is on the long side, it is rather important to watch. H/T: The Right Scoop

Restoring Liberty Should be Our Number One Priority

During the recent election most people listed the economy as their number one concern and that it should be a top priority for the next administration.  The reason people prioritize the economy as their main concern is because they can feel it.  Like the nauseating smell of cigarettes smoke, people feel the negative effects of a faltering economy.   It has an immediate and direct impact on their lives and impedes their ability to pursue happiness because there is little to no opportunity.  So it’s a natural thing for people to desire stronger economic conditions because it creates an opportunity rich […]
