“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel…” –Patrick Henry A bill currently pending in the New Hampshire State legislature would allow business owners to turn away customers on the basis of “conscience or religious faith.” Introduced by Rep. Frank Sapareto, HB1264 aims to protect Christian wedding vendors from being forced to provide services for homosexual couples. The fear that conscience rights may be violated in the Granite State is hardly far-fetched: many U.S. small-business owners have already faced lawsuits for refusing to host or perform same-sex marriage ceremonies. In January, a New Jersey judge ruled against a Christian retreat house that refused to allow a same-sex civil union ceremony to be conducted on its premises, ruling that the Constitution allows “some intrusion into religious freedom to balance other important societal goals.” Last November, Christian cake-baker Victoria Childress of Des Moines was threatened with legal action by a lesbian couple that had hoped to commission her to design their wedding cake. In September, a gay couple filed suit against two Illinois institutions that refused to host their civil union. Christian “Bed and Breakfast” establishments, which are often family-owned businesses, are especially targeted by homosexual rights activists for this type of harassment. The new bill, which was scheduled to come up for a vote last month but has been pushed back to February, would prevent such...Read More

In July of 2011, New Hampshire governor John Lynch vetoed a bill that would have required New Hampshire voters to show photo ID before entering the polls. “Voter turnout in New Hampshire is among the highest in the nation, election after election. There is no voter fraud problem in New Hampshire,” said Governor Lynch in a statement last summer. “We already have strong election laws that are effective in regulating our elections.” Not surprisingly, the governor was outraged last week when a watchdog group, Project Veritas, organized an undercover sting operation to test the veracity of his reassurances. What they found was appalling, if not unexpected. The incidents, which were recorded on hidden cameras, involved actors entering multiple polling places and obtaining ballots using the names of deceased voters. Some of these late voters had been dead for well over a year. When the actors explained that they had forgotten to bring any ID with them, they were told by poll workers that New Hampshire law didn’t require them to show ID. In each case, the actors, feigning shock, said they would feel more comfortable if they went out to their vehicles to get their ID. According to Project Veritas, none of the actors cast a vote with the ballots they had acquired during the sting. Voter Fraud Video on YouTube. Furthermore, in an official statement about the investigative videos,...Read More
Warning: Some of the images in this article are graphic in nature. “This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.” Since the Greek philosopher Plato issued this warning over two millennia ago, humanity has observed the truth of his statement over and over again throughout the course of history; bloody conflicts, economic hardships, social upheavals, and natural disasters have led to the rise of brutal dictatorships. Upon the conclusion of War World I, Germany, as one of the major aggressor nations in the conflict, was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles, ceding 13 percent of its home territory and all of its overseas colonies and agreeing to make hefty reparations payments for the damage and destruction of property which were the results of the aforementioned war. The treaty also included an infamous war guilt clause, by which the nation agreed to take full responsibility for the war. Germany’s first democratically elected Chancellor—Philipp Scheidemann—chose to resign rather than sign the treaty, which ended up devastating the German economy and subjecting its people to incredible humiliation. Enter the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The political leaders of this party understood that the key to power over the German people lay in a policy that offered sympathy with their sufferings. They centered their campaigns on slogans of German greatness which...Read More
“There is only one country in the world for which we project the median fertility to not fall below 2.1 children in the projection period between 2010 and 2100,” said the UN Population Division in the 2010 Population Estimates and Projections Revision. In their informative video series, Overpopulation Is a Myth, The Population Research Institute explains, “by the end of this century, we’ll be losing 1 billion people every twenty years.” The delusion that planet earth is overpopulated and spiraling into uncontrollable and unsustainable population growth is one of the most destructive myths of our time, and is responsible for the deaths of millions. From Paul Ehrlich’s ludicrously inaccurate predictions in The Population Bomb, to climate change alarmist Al Gore’s recommendation of “better choices” to curb what he considers excessive childbearing in developing countries, scare tactics have been shamelessly employed for the purpose of nurturing the big and burgeoning myth of overpopulation. In 1970, President Richard Nixon signed a bill establishing the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future, known as the Rockefeller Commission, chaired by John D. Rockefeller III. Two years later, this same Commission released the 1972 Rockefeller Commission Report on U. S. Population. The report recommended, “that present state laws restricting abortion be liberalized…such abortions to be performed on request by duly licensed physicians under conditions of medical safety. In carrying out this policy, the Commission recommends...Read More
In practically every lengthy abortion debate thread online, some naïve pro-abortion commenter is bound to ask a pro-lifer, “Well, are YOU willing to adopt all of the unwanted children?” This particular jab is one of just a few insults that seriously offends me, and I am likely to get a little irritated whenever I find it necessary to respond to a contentious person who flings this canned remark around in discussion. Aside from the fact that the “question” has no bearing whatsoever on the debate about the ethics of abortion, I find it personally offensive because I am particularly passionate about adoption. In a similar way, and for the very reason I care about people so enthusiastically, it annoys me to listen to proponents of the worn and ridiculous myth that conservatives tend to be selfish and don’t care about people. You’ve heard it all before: conservatives are war-mongers, greedy and tightfisted, guilty of the blood of oppressed peoples all over the world. Back in October, Leslie Marshall wrote a scathing article about “Christian Hypocrisy on the Religious Right,” saying, Those on the religious right want to defund programs such as Social Security, Medicare, welfare, food stamps, healthcare, etc. What I want to know is: why aren’t these so called people of God offering their homes to the homeless, food to the hungry, a coat to someone who is poor and cold?...Read More
