Flag Day 2012
Fallen Heroes

Is Patriotism Uncool?

Star Parker by Jerry Newcombe

The Memorial Day parades and barbecues were barely begun when a TV host put his foot in his mouth, for which he has now profusely (and rightly) apologized.

Chris Hayes, a host on the very liberal MSNBC cable channel, who is also the editor-at-large for Nation magazine, said on the eve of Memorial Day that he feels “uncomfortable” with the notion that soldiers who’ve died are “heroes.” He said this because he fears promoting more unnecessary war. Or as he worded it, “it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war.”

Jerry Newcombe is author of The Book That Made America
Naturally, this comment created a firestorm, and the next day, he wrote an apology, stating: "On Sunday, in discussing the uses of the word 'hero' to describe those members of the armed forces who have given their lives, I don't think I lived up to the standards of rigor, respect and empathy for those affected by the issues we discuss that I've set for myself. I am deeply sorry for that."

He added, “As many have rightly pointed out, it's very easy for me, a TV host, to opine about the people who fight our wars, having never dodged a bullet or guarded a post or walked a mile in their boots. Of course, that is true of the overwhelming majority of our nation's citizens as a whole.” 

I think Hayes’ comment and apology make me wonder this: Is it fashionable to be patriotic today? Maybe not in some circles. At least not among the elite.

Why Our Founders Fought for Life, Liberty and Property

Star Parker by Bobbie Ames (Founder of Emerald Mountain Christian School, Montgomery, AL)

Jefferson begins the Declaration of Independence by justifying this bold action based on the power granted by the Creator, based on the “Laws of Nature and of Nature's God.” He makes his case on that basis. 

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and Property” (Jefferson's original wording). Wording was later amended to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” 

Have you wondered many times where the bold ideas of Thomas Jefferson inscribed in the Declaration of Independence came from? Ideas of government radically different and never put in practice in the history of the world? Ideas so controversial that a war would commence at just the threat of such a government? Thomas Paine wrote in 1776, “These are the times that try men's souls...Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.” 

America has a newly published book which gives great insight into Jefferson's Declaration and philosophy, his leadership and his unique legacy for us today. The book is about the man that Jefferson declared to be one of the three greatest men that had ever lived, the man who, over decades of intense study, shaped Jefferson's worldview. The book: John Locke: Philosopher of American Liberty, by Mary-Elaine Swanson. This book, more than any other I can recommend, will help you understand why our founders fought for life, liberty, and property

Re: Time to finally put the birther dispute to rest (June 2, 2012)

Agreed: Time for President's Eligibility Issue to Get Fair Hearing

This short-sighted editorial unjustly dismisses evidence. Why not full disclosure? Is this outcome based journalism? The term "antics" applies not to those seeking TRUTH, but to those opposing an open hearing. Why should we call the case closed when numerous established facts question the president's integrity?

BHO has now posted at least three different birth certificates on-line since 2008, all different! Logic suggests that at least two are forgeries—just cause for suspicion.

The Move to War!

From Persecution Project Foundation newsletter re: the South Sudan Genecide
by Matt Chancey

If you have been monitoring the news or receiving PPF’s email alerts or our Facebook status updates, you know by now that north and south Sudan have returned to war. 

There are many facets to this conflict which must be probed to fully understand the current situation and what it means for the future of the region. 

The first thing to know is that the international community and much of the mainstream press do not fully grasp what is happening right now in Sudan. For instance, when we read articles about the present conflict, we are told that South Sudan has “invaded” its northern neighbor. This is simply not true. 

In this article, we will seek to address several key points that will hopefully give you the big picture of the current crisis and then let you know how you can get involved to help.
