The objectives of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) are referred to as the “Aims of Scouting” and they are: moral character development, citizenship training, and development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness. The Boy Scout oath states, in part, that a scout will do his duty to God and his country, to keep himself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. Yet none of these words were found in a statement from the president of the BSA, Robert Gates, as he announced a new policy to embrace—pardon the pun—homosexuals as scout leaders: “For far too long this issue has divided and distracted us. Now it’s time to unite behind our shared belief in the extraordinary power of Scouting to be a force for good.” In today’s announcement, the blanket ban on homosexual scout leaders was lifted while allowing church-sponsored Scout units to maintain the exclusion for religious reasons. According to Gates, lifting the ban was necessary to avoid being the target of lawsuits that the Scouts would likely lose, but with the exemption for religious reasons, Gates has actually created an environment where lawsuits are likely to increase. In fact, the BSA’s top leaders pledged to defend the […]

When Nikki Haley, the RINO Republican governor of South Carolina, caved to demands by politically-correct extremists and their attempts to rewrite the history of the South and the Confederate flag, a promise was made that this would bring “unity” to a divided country. But alas, as is always the case when dealing with the PC-Left, nothing is over until they say it’s over. Instead of putting the fire out, her actions have helped to fuel the blaze as it spreads across the rest of the South. Richard Rose, the president of the Atlanta NAACP (or should that be NAAPC?), is calling for all Confederate symbols to be removed from all government-owned property and plans to pursue making those changes during the next legislative session; a demand that includes a call to sand blast a giant carving of three military heroes of the South memorialized at Stone Mountain Park. Stone Mountain Park features the largest relief sculpture in the world, and features: Jefferson Davis, who was president of the Confederacy, General Robert E. Lee, and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. And even though it is the most recognizable tribute to the Confederacy, Rose’s demand to remove flags and memorials extends to all state […]

As I wrote a few days ago, recent actions by the federal government are chipping away at our constitutional rights. As serious as that threat has become, there are signs that people are waking up to those rights and how they can be used to stem the tide of tyranny. The Alabama Supreme Court has been petitioned to consider the damage done to the states and the U.S. Constitution by the Supreme Court’s decision in the Obergefell v. Hodges case that legalized same-sex marriage before it determines how the ruling will apply to Alabama. The Liberty Counsel filed a brief arguing that there is precedent in the United States for a state Supreme Court to reject a “U.S. Supreme Court mandate which is unlawful.” Alabama has been involved in the marriage fight ever since they defied a federal judge’s order to impose same-sex marriage, arguing that its own interpretation of the Constitution was just as valid. “There is existing precedent for a state’s highest court to reject an unlawful mandate from the U.S. Supreme Court,” said Liberty Counsel’s founder and chairman, Mat Staver. “The hope of our constitutional Republic rests upon state officials and American citizens who will refuse to […]

Since Obergefell v. Hodges concluded, we’ve seen a rampant uptick of opinions from Christians and those in support of same-sex “marriage.” Just Google “same-sex marriage opinions,” and you can browse through all 18 million hits. But something has been left out of the equation. Through all the defense and counter articles from each side, I haven’t really seen many Christian resources putting the burden back on the alphabet community. We should provide a strong shield from the Word of God, but there are some questions I’d like to ask the LGBT collection. First of all, if you truly believe in love, and really feel the decision to force states to license same-sex marriages is justifiable because of how you feel about someone, why can’t Christians follow the teachings by someone we love? Christians love Jesus, yet we are told by you that we can’t exercise that love outside of the church. And if we advocated that your keep your same-sex love in your house, we’d be called intolerant, while getting accused of forcing our morals on you. Secondly, if it’s only about love to you, then why do you need the government to recognize the relationship? For the tax benefits? […]

As she led the ceremony removing the Confederate flag from the grounds of the South Carolina state capitol—the same flag she defended during her re-election in 2014—one time conservative and now a puppet of the politically correct, Governor Nikki Haley, proclaimed: “It is a new day in South Carolina, a day we can all be proud of, a day that truly brings us all together as we continue to heal, as one people and one state.” The flag was removed after being convicted without a trial as an accessory to the murder of nine parishioners by a crazy man. It has been sentenced to life in solitary confinement at the Confederate Relic room so as not to ever murder again. As you can probably tell, I’m not too impressed with this latest effort by liberal-elitists to rewrite history in the image of the politically correct Left at the expense of the Constitution. And I’m not alone in that assessment. Keven Jackson, a rising voice in the conservative movement and a man who is “sworn to set the record straight on the destruction by Democrats to the black community,” debated the issue on FOX News as he called out the Left […]

By: Alex Buchmann Our President’s tweet on SCOTUS’s recent soiling of state’s rights represents the Left’s ultimate feeling towards those who oppose their agenda. I’ll post the tweet for those of you who wisely avoid social media due to remarks like this: Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins — President Obama (@POTUS) June 26, 2015 This tweet sent from the elected executive of a constitutional republic symbolizes yet another example of the radical collapse of discussion within our culture. Let me expound on the President’s micro-aggression a little further. For love to win, hate must lose. In the nation of oversimplification, this tweet trumps all. If you’re not for love, then naturally you must be for hate, or so the liberal narrative goes. In the ‘gay rights’ movement, which already over-politicize every issue through bullying and intimidation, there will be no arguments after this. Those opposing the court’s ruling must inevitably be part of the bigotry and hate crowd (Exclusive Tee-Shirts of which are available upon request. I’ve made some great designs!). The Left doesn’t want a second side to any […]

One of the goals of the Strident Conservative is to be a light exposing the darkness of the lying liars on the left as they spread their radical “transformation of America” agenda. Over the past year, many of the lies have been in the area of same-sex marriage and the intolerance of those who oppose the idea. Now, in light of the Supreme Court decision that “legalized” same-sex marriage in all 50 states, some of the concerns held by folks who support traditional marriage—a union between one man and one woman—are already being realized. While spreading the truth about the consequences of legalizing same-sex marriage, I also challenged those who read my articles or hear me on the radio to take a stand for what’s right and make their voices heard. Thankfully, many of them have said yes! Unfortunately, there are also those who say that these new laws don’t affect them, so they don’t see the need to make a fuss. To those people, I offer this quote from the great Dr. Martin Luther King: According to several outspoken leaders who have been legally engaged with the issue, the redefinition of marriage by the Supreme Court has set up […]

For some reason, I made my way to PoliticsUSA.com the other day and I came across a headline that made me question whether or not people actually read. Oklahoma’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that the state must remove its Ten Commandments monument at the state Capitol because it violates the state Constitution. Article 2, section 5 of the Oklahoma Constitution says, “No public money or property shall ever be appropriated, applied, donated, or used, directly or indirectly, for the use, benefit, or support of any sect, church, denomination, or system of religion, or for the use, benefit, or support of any priest, preacher, minister, or other religious teacher or dignitary, or sectarian institution as such.” Now, states are free to decide these types of issues among themselves. However, those who oppose this truth always seem to point back to the establishment clause in the First Amendment of the Constitution, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” Merely having a 10 Commandments statue on the capitol is not an establishment of religion, especially if it is privately funded. If Oklahoma had been arresting and throwing their citizens in jail because they didn’t believe in the 10 Commandments, […]

It was just a little over two years ago that Jason Collins, a washed-up NBA player nearing the end of his career and looking for some cheap publicity, announced to the world in a Sports Illustrated interview that he was “a 34-year-old NBA center” who was “black” and “gay.” In the interview, as he tried to justify his sexually deviant lifestyle, he reflected on the “Christian” lessons he learned from his parents, particularly the teachings of Jesus Christ: I’m from a close-knit family. My parents instilled Christian values in me. They taught Sunday school, and I enjoyed lending a hand. I take the teachings of Jesus seriously, particularly the ones that touch on tolerance and understanding. (emphasis mine) Of course, I documented how wrong Mr. Collins was about the teachings of Christ, particularly when it came to how the Son of God doesn’t “tolerate” our sin and the choices we make. I invite you to check it out. So, why am I revisiting this story? Because I believe that in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Obergefell v. Hodges case, which fabricated a constitutional basis to legalize “marriage” between two people of the same gender, we will begin to […]

In another 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled today on Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project that you can be held liable for housing discrimination whether or not you or anyone in your organization actually intended to discriminate.
Mere thought crimes – or as Justice Kennedy put it, “unconscious prejudice” or “stereotyping” is enough to get you used in hiring, renting property or numerous other activities if your decision can be found to have ‘disparate impact’ on the favored protected groups.
This decision was deliberately left quite broad, and it’s a wet dream for race pimps or ‘community organizers,’ not to mention predatory lawyers and the Obama Justice Department.
This nonsense has long been a part of employment law, especially in fascist progressive states like California. Even asking someone about their criminal record, work history or credit can be seen as ‘discriminatory’ in the once Golden State, even if this might have a direct bearing on their suitability for a prospective position. Even references are a thing of the past as most employers will only confirm the person once worked there and will not disclose anything else, even if they were discharged for cause.
This is one reason many employer no longer hire employees per se, but independent contractors as needed.
Now this nonsense is going to be extended to the renting of property, extending credit and even local decisions on where to build housing. It can also be used to force property owners to rent to Section 8 tenants whether they want to or not. And again, things like credit, prior rental history or a prior criminal record don’t matter provided the prospective tenant is part of one of those ‘protected groups.’ Somebody who’s a registered sex offender wants to rent in your building, even though you have families with young children living there? Provided this person belongs to certain groups, you can be sued for your decision to rent to them or not for any reason based on ‘disparate impact.’
In the actual case the SCOTUS ruled on, there’s another wonderfully Kafka-esque twist. It involves a decision by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs on the location of low-income housing, and as the dissenting opinion points out, no matter where they decide to locate it, they can be sued on the grounds of ‘disparate impact’ by one group or another.
This also plays in nicely with the new Obama diktat on forced neighborhood diversity.
And you thought we lived in a free country?

As I expected, The US Supreme Court today ruled to allow nationwide subsidies on ObamaCare even though they are clearly illegal according to the law as written. The Court’s long awaited decision in King v. Burwell was 6-3 for Burwell, ruling that the federal subsidies can still be paid to states that elected not to establish an exchange, a clear violation of the Tenth Amendment as well as the explicit wording of the law.
Voting with Justices Ginsberg, Sontamayor and Breyer were Justices Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts, whom wrote the majority opinion. While his opinion is a model of illogic and doublespeak, he at least had the honesty to admit that the Court’s majority ignored the actual wording of the law itself as well as the Constitution:
“In this instance,” he wrote, “the context and structure of the act compel us to depart from what would otherwise be the most natural reading of the pertinent statutory phrase.”
This was challenging, he said, because there were “more than a few examples of inartful drafting that “does not reflect the type of care and deliberation that one might expect of such significant legislation.”
Or to translate this, the law itself is so poorly written, nonsensical and contradictory that the Supreme Court, in its wisdom had to actually rewrite it in order to continue to foist it on the American people.
Justice Roberts is frankly admitting that in this case, politics trumps not only what the law says but the Constitution. This is a classic case of what Lawyers refer to as a Stare Decisis ‘because we said so’ ruling. The actual wording of the law is what Roberts and his cohorts think it should be rather than what it actually is.
Justice Scalia had the right if it, as he frequently does. He read his dissent from the bench, a rare sign of profound disagreement.
In his dissent, Scalia said that we should start calling ObamaCare, “SCOTUSCare.” At the end of his dissent, Scalia wrote, “[t]he somersaults of statutory interpretation they have performed (“penalty” means tax, “further [Medicaid] payments to the State” means only incremental Medicaid payments to the State, “established by the State” means not established by the State) will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence. And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”
Or as Senator Ted Cruz said, if these justices want to write law rather then interpret it, “They should run for Congress.”
He’s exactly right. This is the second time the Supreme Court has rewritten this law, not to mention the times this president has unilaterally (and illegally, I might add) done so.
The current ruling went right to the heart of what ObamaCare is all about – reducing benefits, increasing co-pays and raising premiums sky high on the middle class to subsidize all those new migrants the president is bringing in…with, of course, exemptions for the well connected. That includes every member of the Supreme Court, their employees and their families.
Those of the middle class whom can’t pay will be fined by the IRS..and those who can’t afford the co-pays after paying the high premiums to avoid the fine will simply go without care.
This is so far away from the Constitution our Founders bequeathed us or even the normal standards of jurisprudence as to be ludicrous. When judges write law on the fly to suit themselves and their political agenda, then there is no justice and no law.
There are several things to take away from this that are simply self-evident truths.
The Left now noisily celebrating this should understand that this creates a precedent that can be used against them in the future in ways they won’t like. Blatant disregard for justice and the law eventually comes home to roost for those whom champion it.
Second, this ruling doesn’t change the basic nature of ObamaCare. It merely preserves it as a poorly written law that makes no fiscal or common sense whatsoever. Half of the exchanges are already bankrupt or headed that way, because most of those who signed up are people who are taking advantage of full subsidies and pay no premiums anyway. There’s a limit to how far the fiction will stretch until it cracks.
As Europe is now finding out, you can have an immigration society or a lavish welfare state, just not both.Many of the migrants this president is bringing in are going to turn out to be net tax consumers rather than tax payers by a huge margin. States like California are already seeing this at work. Far from helping to cure the deficit, ObamaCare is now estimated to increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report.
As President Obama continues his amnesty by executive order, expect this figure to increase markedly.
Congress, of course, could still use the power of the purse to defund ObamaCare. Under the present leadership, I rate the chances of that as roughly the shy side of zero.
Why this is true is unimportant right now, although as I’ve speculated on these pages the unprecedented amount of spying on American citizens, the enormous amount of data collected and President Obama’s past use of such weapons and tactics against his political opponents might be an answer. Apparently I’m not the only one thinking that way.
None of this matters, really. We can be outraged, justifiably so, but as I pointed out yesterday, what really is important right now is answering Tolstoy’s question: what then must we do?
I’ve said before that America’s destiny is either to reaffirm the republic our forefathers bequeathed to us or to become Rome. The powers that be have apparently decided they’re fine with Rome as long as their perks and bottom line are taken care of. Unless we’re prepared to go along with that as a population of pauperized serfs supporting their rule and whatever they decree, we are going to have to band together to institute massive political change using what left of our republic and our rights as citizens..before we lose those as well.
Think this over:
What principles do you stand for, and what are you not willing to compromise on?
What are you prepared to do to change things?

When Indiana passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act–a law protecting religious freedom–the Gay Mafia objected. As a result, the Republican cowards in the Hoosier State reversed themselves, granting special rights to the homosexual community and criminalizing Christians and other people of faith who choose to exercise their Constitutional right. The fallout from these extortion tactics have since led to other states caving to the homosexual mob, and have emboldened some pro-homosexual politicians at the state level–because every mob owns a politician or two–to call for Nazi-styled branding of businesses who choose to exercise their rights. Even the politicians working for them in Washington have joined the mob in calls for voiding the religious rights of those who object to the homosexual movement and the Gay Mafia. Interestingly enough, it has also led to a bizarro-world type of situation, where businesses are discriminating against Christians who are suffering the negative consequences of allegedly discriminating against homosexuals. Well, they have struck again, this time in Grimes, Iowa, where the owners of a Christian family run business is being forced to shut their doors after being charged with discrimination against a homosexual couple. Betty Odgaard and her husband, Richard, have been the owners […]

For nearly two decades, the U.S. Army has provided an honor guard for the Independence Day celebration at Abilene Baptist Church in Augusta, GA, a church that predates the founding of America. Sadly, that tradition has been brought to an end. Officials at Fort Gordon have decided they will not send an honor guard to the July 5th services at the church because it would be a violation of military policy. In a lame attempt to justify the decision, Public Affairs Officer J.C. Mathews stated that officials at Fort Gordon and the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate reviewed the church’s request and determined that the event was “a religious service.” Here’s how he explained it: “While there are conditions under which the Army can participate in events conducted at a house of worship, we cannot participate in the context of a religious service.” Oh the horror! A religious service in a church? So I guess J.C. Mathews–interesting initials under the circumstances–is saying is that it’s OK for the Army to go to an event held at a church as long as you don’t pray, mention Jesus or read the Bible. For the record, this isn’t just any church. Abilene […]

Following the uproar over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that passed in Indiana—and was subsequently retracted—I wrote a piece about a group that Bill Maher once referred to as the “Gay Mafia.” In that piece, we learned about the hit man tactics used by homosexual-extremists to snuff-out anyone who opposed their radical agenda, especially when that objection was based on religious freedom. A few days later, I wrote another piece about how the bullying tactics used by the Gay Mafia had successfully intimidated Republican governors across America from passing that law in their states. Well, it looks like the Gay Mafia has chalked up another victim. In the wake of an excessively punitive judgement, former bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein were ordered by a judge to pay $135,000 in fines to a lesbian couple because the Kleins refused to bake a wedding cake for the homosexual couple due to their personal religious beliefs. Following the news of the ruling, supporters of the Klein family set up a GoFundMe page to help them pay the fine, and within eight hours, the campaign reached over $100,000. But then, suddenly and without notice, the account was closed. In a statement regarding their decision […]

Two news stories from last week provide evidence of the assault on Christianity and the anti-Christian indoctrination taking place in America’s public schools. First, the Duncan Public School district in Oklahoma has committed itself to a total prohibition of Bible distribution to students, after an atheist organization called the “American Humanist Association” threatened them with legal action for what it called “unconstitutional Bible distribution.” They made the threat after learning that a teacher at Woodrow Wilson Elementary was handing out free Gideon Bibles. According to the third-grade teacher, Erica Mackey, she offered copies of the New Testament to anyone who wanted one. Ane while nearly all of the students accepted the offer, the AHA contends that one child felt “peer-pressured and coerced” to follow his classmates and take one. After receiving the threat via email, lawyers for the administrators cowards at the school district responded by sending a letter to the AHA assuring the anti-Christian radicals that the practice would stop. There are those who feel that the Woodrow Wilson Elementary teacher did nothing wrong—including parents and local residents—but that really isn’t the issue. For the intolerant who demand tolerance, this situation and others like it have nothing to do […]

After radical homosexuals succeeded in using mafia-styled intimidation tactics against the Republican cowards in Indiana following passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, forcing them to reverse the law while providing special rights for homosexuals, the gay mob kicked the machine into overdrive. And, just like a true organized crime family, the gay mafia have a few politicians in their back pockets doing their bidding. In a new move intended to provide special rights for homosexuals while denying constitutional rights for anyone who disagrees with them, Jared Polis (D-CO) has joined in leading a push to pass a Federal LGBT Resolution Opposing Discrimination in opposition to “so-called” religious freedom. An idea that clearly violates the 1st Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…. Joined by Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), the proposal wold force Christians to provide their services for homosexual events, even if it violates their faith. Carson said it’s “long past time” for Congress to set in stone bans on such decisions based on religion. He asserted “all Americans, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity,” need to know they are “valued members of our society.” He concludes with a bit of irony, […]

Just like the Godfather movie franchise, the Gay Mafia will have a sequel or two, as we see today in Gay Mafia II. Following the successful bullying of the spineless RINOs in Indiana, the Gay Mafia is making an impact on the GOP—which really does stand for Gutless On Principles—across the country. After witnessing the mafia-styled thuggery unleashed on lawmakers in Indiana when they passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, at least three RINO governors—North Dakota, Michigan, and Arkansas—made the decision to pay the homosexual extortionists instead of defending the First Amendment. The message to their fellow lawmakers was loud and clear: We need more laws protecting homosexuals. In North Dakota, the legislature recently voted against a bill that added protection for “gays” in housing and employment. This move angered Gov. Jack Dalrymple, who issued a terse memo to the legislature: “Discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation is not acceptable,” Gov. Jack Dalrymple said in a statement issued after the North Dakota Legislature killed the proposal. Governor Rick Snyder issued a warning to Michigan lawmakers, letting them know in no uncertain terms that he wouldn’t accept any type of religious freedom bill that fails to include specific special protections for homosexuals. Citing […]

By now you’ve probably heard about the state Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed by the Indiana Legislature and signed into law by Governor Mike Pence. The reason you’ve probably heard about it is because the entertainment industry, the mainstream media—aren’t those the same thing?—and even Democrat presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton, have made the outrageous claim that the law has essentially legalized discrimination, specifically discrimination against homosexuals. But that’s a nothing more than a lie driven by political correctness and a political agenda. Indiana’s religious freedom bill uses nearly identical language and adopts the same approach to the exercise of religious freedom under the First Amendment as the federal bill passed in 1993 and signed into law by Hillary’s husband. By the way, that law passed the House of Representatives unanimously, and fell just three votes of being unanimous in the Senate (97-3). From the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993: Government may substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion only if it demonstrates that application of the burden to the person is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest. From Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act: A governmental entity may substantially burden a person’s […]

It was just a few days ago that I wrote about the tyranny Americans now live under from the judicial, executive, and legislative branches of the federal government. Now comes word of more tyrannical behavior by the government from Houston, TX. and the pro-homosexual city council and mayor. In a clear case of government bullying, the city of Houston has issued subpoenas to a group of pastors requesting any sermons they’ve written that cover the subject of homosexuality, gender identity, or mention of Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. The subpoenas came after pastors protested against Houston’s new non-discrimination ordinance that the city council passed in June which, among other clauses related to sexuality and gender identity, would allow men to use the ladies room and vice versa in an effort to protect transgender rights, according to Fox News. As we saw in my previous piece, tyrannical behavior has come to us from many angles, but an interesting amount of it now comes to us courtesy of the homosexual agenda and the Constitutionally-protected right to religious freedom. As I documented in another article I wrote, when openly homosexual football player, Michael Sam, was in the news, this is an unavoidable situation: “The […]

Last week, the government released employment data that showed a drop in unemployment even though the economy remained weak and the country reached a record low labor participation rate. As the left-wing grapples with this disparity between statistics and reality, they have come to adopt an interesting term to describe this failure. They call it the new norm, which has become a way to provide cover for their failed policies while making it sound like it’s not their fault. I’m sure you remember how they did the same thing when Bush was president, right? Of course you don’t. This “new norm” has become a way of telling America to simply accept things as they are because it’s normal. Unfortunately, the new norm has begun to show itself in other areas. Recently, the Supreme Court decided not to decide (which is deciding) on the issue of state’s rights—specifically, the right of the states (i.e. the people) to establish the boundaries on what is considered marriage—when they elected to ignore the appeals of several states that had their laws on the issue overturned by activist judges in several lower courts. Whether you agree with this decision or not—and for that matter, whether you support homosexual marriage or not—really […]
