The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling declaring the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because of the words "under God" is another symptom of the progressive, liberal judicial insanity that has been permeating our society since the 1960s. Our Constitution gives us freedom of worship, not proscription of religion.
Thomas Jefferson warned us that judicial activism could lead to tyranny and chaos if unchecked. The chickens have come home to roost.
A book authored earlier this year by John F. McManus, president of the John Birch Society, entitled "William F. Buckley, Jr. Pied Piper for the Establishment," has not received the attention it deserves in the mainstream media and, surprisingly, the alternative, more conservative forms of communication in this information age.
We had no choice but to punish the perpetrators and collaborators of the heinous 9-11 terrorist attack that left nearly 3,000 innocent Americans crying out for justice. It was an unprovoked attack, correctly an act of war, and the U.S. had good cause under the Just War doctrine (i.e., the Judeo-Christian principle establishing the right to defend oneself against an aggressor) to retaliate and to punish the guilty and discourage future acts of terrorism. Such dastardly barbarity should not go unpunished.
On July 1, 2002, the International Criminal Court (ICC) of the United Nations opened its doors in The Hague, ready to hear, file and investigate complaints alleging human rights abuses, genocide and crimes against humanity on the part of any of its member nations whether signatories to the ICC treaty or not, including members of the globetrotting U.N. peacekeeping forces.
America's Founding Fathers, our prescient, venerable predecessors, established for us a Constitutional Republic, limited government by the rule of law and with the consent of the governed. They also said, in the voice of Benjamin Franklin (1787), that our newly founded nation was and should remain a Republic, if we can keep it, if we can preserve it as a cherished legacy for posterity.
Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton was correct when she said in Albany, New York, "I hope no one is ever in doubt again about whether their vote counts." Indeed, citizens should make their votes count, but they also have a responsibility to become informed and vigilant in exercising that civic duty.
As dramatic events unfold in Florida (i.e., tainted by mismarked ballots in Palm Beach County, miscounted votes, bureaucratic snafus, etc.) the Democrats are exploiting these "irregularities" to the core. Never mind that voter fraud by the Democrats has been widespread in South Florida for years, and Janet Reno has known about it.
I don't know Georgia militia leader Bob Starr or James McCranie, but by The Telegraph's own coverage they are being accused of and imprisoned for dubious charges not substantiated by the testimony of their BATF accusers in the judicial hearings held in Macon on May 6.
