The U.S. Constitution Is Not A Political Weapon

Destroying Freedoms and Rights in America

One of the first major in-your-face assaults to abolish our U.S. Constitution and eradicate many of our rights and freedoms occurred over five decades ago when the Supreme Court made a horrendous decision blocking prayer in schools. Their 1963 ruling made it illegal for students to participate in prayer while in school because it violates […]

Free Speech in these United States of America

Many Americans do not realize the extent to which the First Amendment, especially free speech, has been under attack. It is clear, according to the First Amendment, that free speech cannot be abridged.  Period.  Yet, it gets done constantly. Political Correctness has been strangling Free Speech for many years.  The same can be said about Free Speech […]

Judge Jeanine Pirro Fights for We The People

In a recent Fox News “Opening Statement,” Judge Jeanine Pirro leads off with this:  “They are changing the rules before your very eyes.  This is bigger than a travel ban, bigger than a debate question.  The left is changing black letter law and journalistic standards and the constitution in order to satisfy their agenda.  They […]

What is at Stake in the 2016 Election

The 2016 presidential election is much more than just Republican vs Democrat or conservative vs liberal. It is about liberty.  It is about freedom.  It is about our rights as individuals here in America. It is about who is for “The People,” as in “We the People.”  It is about whom we can trust. Hillary has […]

Benjamin Franklin Synonymous With Freedom and Liberty

There were 56 individuals who signed the Declaration of Independence.  There were thousands of others who put their lives on the line to ensure that the United States of America became established through the Revolutionary War and the adoption of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. However, there is only one Benjamin Franklin. As […]

The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, the second item addressed in OUR Bill of Rights, states:  “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” In this short video, Republican Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump is very […]

Obama and the US Constitution – Not Compatible

For too many years the American public has turned a blind eye, or has been simply bamboozled, as politicians have slowly but surely been stealing our rights and freedoms away.
