How One Man Helped Propel the American Revolution

That the brilliant wordsmith Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence is indisputable, but a lesser-known fact is that the man who played the indispensable role in its adoption by the Continental Congress in July 1776 was John Adams of Massachusetts, our second president. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Jefferson later confirmed Adams’ role as the tireless “floor manager” of the declaration: No man better merited than Mr. John Adams to hold a most conspicuous place in the design. He was the pillar of its support on the floor of Congress, its ablest advocate and defender against the multifarious assaults encountered. As historian David McCullough has written, tension in the congressional debate was heightened by the sighting of a hundred British ships off New York, the first … Read entire article »

The Left Is Trying to Rewrite American History. We Must Stop Them.

George Orwell said, “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month In the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, censorship, rewriting of history, and eliminating undesirable people became part of Soviets’ effort to ensure that the correct ideological and political spin was put on their history.

See how below.—Ken McIntyre Kill Your Cable Bill!

Despite Conservative Victories in 2016, Assisted Suicide Has Gained Ground

Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month While the nation’s attention has been squarely on President-elect Donald Trump’s win in recent weeks, election night also saw several significant losses for conservatives. Among these is Colorado’s Proposition 106, known as the End of Life Options Act, which passed by an astounding two-thirds percentage and effectively legalized suicide in that state.

Getting Rid of Electoral College Would Mean a Tyrannical Rule of the Majority

Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month It is alleged that Hillary Clinton won a popular vote majority. Therefore, if the nation were not burdened with the antiquated Electoral College, anguished and freaked-out Americans whine, she, instead of Donald Trump, would be the next president of the United States.

The Continuing Relevance of the Constitution

Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Public policy is often exciting and urgent. When a war begins or ends, when votes are counted in an election, or when a major bill is passed, everyone senses the magnitude of the event. Some struggles end and new struggles begin.

Thomas Jefferson Now Politically Incorrect at the University He Founded

A group of students and professors at the University of Virginia want to give the founder of their school the shaft.
