Abraham Lincoln's America by Chuck Baldwin February 18, 2009 America just celebrated Presidents Day this past Monday. What first began as an observance for President George Washington has (since the 1980s) morphed into the generic "Presidents Day," which is a politically correct celebration of mediocrity that forces our nation's greatest President to be lumped together with incompetents such as Ulysses S. Grant, Woodrow Wilson, and Jimmy Carter. On the occasion of Presidents [...]

Partisan Hypocrisy Commentary by Steve Scroggins Editor's Note: This commentary is written in response to Cynthia Tucker's editorial in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Sunday Feb. 15, 2009 entitled, "Republicans playing same old politics" --- text below.

My Ole' Kentucky Home Monday, February 16, 2009   As our Constitution continues to be ignored, side-stepped, and generally trashed I believe it is time to re-evaluate what it means to be a citizen in these "days and times." The basis of this government is the notion of "consent of the governed." What has happened to us in the last 145 years? In the mid 19th century everyone knew what the government [...]

The Story of Ephraim Robinson (Part 15) by Bill Vallante There is something quite poignant about Ephraim Robinson’s story but for the life of me I just can’t put down into words why I get a lump in my throat whenever I read it. Despite being thankful that he was free when the war was over, his heart was with the South and he had showed no regrets about his service to [...]

State Sovereignty Movement Quietly Growing February 5th, 2009 You may not have heard much about it, but there's a quiet movement afoot to reassert state sovereignty and stop the uncontrolled expansion of federal government power. Almost half of the state legislatures are considering or have representatives preparing to introduce resolutions which reassert the principles of the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution and the idea that federal power is strictly limited [...]

Economic rebels Published: Fri, Feb. 13, 2009 Reasonable people can disagree about whether the Civil War was fought over slavery or the tariff, or was simply an inevitable conflict between agricultural and industrial societies. All these theories boil down to one basic issue: How much federal control and national uniformity should there be with respect to the economy? In this age of spectacular failure of the federally regulated industrial national economy, it [...]

Black Historian Documents Lincoln's Racism By Robert Stacy McCain THE WASHINGTON TIMES May 26, 2000 Abraham Lincoln "was a racist who opposed equal rights for black people, who loved minstrel shows, who used the N-word, who wanted to deport all blacks," a veteran journalist and historian says. "There has been a systematic attempt to keep the American public from knowing the real Lincoln and the depth of his commitment to white supremacy," [...]
