Unions Lose Respect

Amnesty One and Two — T.F. Stern

Call it coincidence if you will; but the Fox News website had an interesting combination of headline stories laid out one above the other...close enough to the casual observer one might come to the conclusion these were the same story.

Look to the Lighthouse of the Lord

My counsel for all of us is to look to the lighthouse of the Lord. There is no fog so dense, no night so dark, no gale so strong, no mariner so lost but what its beacon light can rescue. It beckons through the storms of life. The lighthouse of the Lord sends forth signals readily recognized and never failing. - Thomas S. Monson

The New York City Lower Manhattan Community Board 1 (“LMCB”) voted 24-11, with two abstentions and one recusal, to recommend that the city deny landmark status for the building at 45-47 Park Place, the planned site of the controversial Ground Zero mosque.

Arizona Appeals Ruling on Immigration Law Amid Protests, Dozens of Arrests

Talk of Impeachment

Going straight to the heart of the issue confronting all Americans, Tancredo said, “Our president is an enemy of the Constitution and, as such, he is a danger to our safety, our security, and our personal freedoms.” Kuhner urged that, should the Republicans win back Congress in November “formal investigations into this criminal, scandal-ridden administration” should be launched. - Alan Caruba

Gentiles Will Be Led to Promised Land and Fulness of the Gospel

And after the house of Israel should be scattered they should be gathered together again; or, in fine, after the Gentiles had received the fulness of the Gospel, the natural branches of the olive-tree, or the remnants of the house of Israel, should be grafted in, or come to the knowledge of the true Messiah, their Lord and their Redeemer. - American Scripture, 1 Nephi 10:11-14

Real America Did Not Sue Arizona

Selective “enforcement” of the law is a sure sign that those in power are using the nation’s entire legal apparatus to their own ends.

Statists Distrust Everyone — T.F. Stern

Statists would have everyone sign on to the idea that through some magic wand, which only they have control of, all the little bumps in the road can be smoothed away, you and your family will be guaranteed safety. You have to forfeit God given rights; that’s all you have to do, really.

Our Dying Constitution — and How to Revive It

Can YOU do anything about our dying Constitution? SHOULD you? ABSOLUTELY, YES! The recent surge of support for our revered fundamental law encourages battle-scarred veterans of this war, and sends forth the clarion call: We Americans have the MANDATE and the MUSCLE to fight for the Constitution, and we must be empowered with adequate and accurate knowledge to fight effectively - Virginia Armstrong
