IN FOCUS – Birthright Citizenship

Aristotle built his political theory on basic principles, one of which was the concept of citizenship. A citizen is a person who has the right to participate in the processes by which his nation is governed. Aristotle distinguished citizens from mere inhabitants of the nation who did not have such rights, such as resident aliens.

IN FOCUS – Endless Wars

One of the most important tools tyrants use to keep their subjects under control is maintaining a continual state of war. As George Orwell famously wrote in his novel 1984, “Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia.”

IN FOCUS -The Great Replacement

When Americans recognize that massive immigration from third world countries is changing American politics, leftists are incensed. Americans were not supposed to notice. And if we ever complain that the political power and economic resources of Americans is being eroded by illegal newcomers, we are accused of believing in “Replacement theory,” or “The Great Replacement.”

IN FOCUS – Judicial Supremacy

The U.S. Constitution is a continuing source of annoyance to tyrants.  It grants the federal government only a few, limited powers.  It recognizes and protects God-given rights, like the right to keep and bear arms.  If those in public office were faithful to the Constitution, the federal government would not pose a threat to the American People.  So, how do Tyrants get around the U.S. Constitution?

IN FOCUS – Deep State Blackmail

This week marks the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the national holiday established to commemorate his life. It is a fitting time to reflect on a particular tool of tyrants that the FBI weaponized against King — blackmail. Just two days after King’s now-iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, assistant FBI director William Sullivan wrote, “We must mark him now … as the most dangerous Negro of the future of this Nation…”

IN FOCUS – Tyrants Incite Fear To Control Us

It is truly remarkable how many Bible verses admonish us to “Fear not.”  These verses begin with God speaking to Abram in Genesis 15:1, and continue through Jesus telling John “Fear not” in Revelation 1:17.  In between, the gospels are overflowing with admonitions from Jesus to eschew fear, such as:  “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”

IN FOCUS – Tyrants Need a Surveillance Society

The Bible specifies that the purpose of civil government is “for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do well.” I Peter 2:14 (emphasis added). A ruler is described as a “revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.” Romans 13:4 (emphasis added). In both verses, government’s role is described as responding to evildoing after it occurs — not anticipating and preventing it from occurring.

IN FOCUS – How the Left Projects Its Dark Deeds onto Others

How many times have we seen leftists accuse Patriots of wrongdoing, only to later discover that the leftists were doing in secret exactly what they accused the Patriots of doing? Here’s a recent illustration. For years, high ranking officials accused President Trump of colluding with Russia to assist his 2016 campaign, thereby “stealing” the election.

Tools Of Tyranny

Some of us once may have believed the advice given by graduation speakers that you can have anything you want and be anything we want to be — if only you want it badly enough. But during our lifetimes we have learned that this advice (attributed to Abraham Lincoln) is an empty platitude.
