Do You Adhere to the Language of Liberty or the Language of Servitude?

by Karen Lees, staff writer

From The Language of Liberty Series

The Language of Liberty celebrates the freedom of the individual. The language of Servitude exalts the tyranny of the State.

The statements which follow reveal the mighty difference between those who fear the power of freedom and those who relish it.


In their own words are revealed the true intentions–in both the past and the present– of those who speak the language of Servitude:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”-Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it”-Adolph Hitler

“It doesn’t matter what is true; it only matters what people believe is true.”-Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace

“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” -Professor Maurice King, World Health Organization

“Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.” – Sir John Houghton, first chairman of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.” – Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of IPCC reports

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” – Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony, climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” – Christine Stewart, Former Canadian Minister of the Environment

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” – Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Program

“Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe [v. Wade] was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”– Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Supreme Court Justice

“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.” and in separate statement, “My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”-Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

“Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.”– David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club

“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” -Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI

“The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” –Bill Gates, businessman and philanthropist

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” and in a separate statement, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”-Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, Letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 1939


In stark contrast to the language of tyranny and servitude, liberty speaks to the natural rights of mankind. THE LANGUAGE OF LIBERTY SOUNDS LIKE THIS:

“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 the pursuit of Happiness, – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” -Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence

“This magistrate is not the king. The PEOPLE are the KING.”-Gouverneur Morris, Signer of the Constitution and NY State Senator

“The PEOPLE are the SOVEREIGN of this country.”-John Jay, the First Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court

“SOVEREIGNTY resides in the PEOPLE; they have not parted with it.” – James Wilson, Signer of Constitution

“The ULTIMATE AUTHORITY… resides in the PEOPLE ALONE.”-James Madison, Federalist No. 46, 1788

“The PEOPLE of these United States are the rightful MASTERS of both congresses and courts.”-Abraham Lincoln, debate with Stephen Douglas

“The PEOPLE are the government, administering it by their agents; they are the government, the SOVEREIGN POWER.” -President Andrew Jackson, 1841

“The PEOPLE are the only SOVEREIGNS recognized by our Constitution…The success of our admirable system is a conclusive refutation of the theories of those in other countries who maintain that a ‘favored few’ are born to rule and that the mass of mankind must be governed by force.”-President James K. Polk, December 7, 1847

“The SOVEREIGNTY of sixty millions of FREE PEOPLE is…the working out…of the divine right of man to govern himself and a manifestation of God’s plan concerning the human race.” -President Grover Cleveland, 1887

“In the United States it is the PEOPLE who are SOVEREIGN… The Government is theirs to speak their voice and to voice their will.” -General Omar Bradley, 1948

“I have a dream that one day THIS NATION WILL RISE UP and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL MEN are created equal.” –Martin Luther King, 1964

“Never forget that in America our SOVEREIGN is the CITIZEN…The State is a servant of the INDIVIDUAL. It [government] must never become an anonymous monstrosity that masters everyone.” -President Gerald Ford, 1975

“The Founding Fathers understood that only by making government the servant, not the master, only by positing [expecting] SOVEREIGNTY in THE PEOPLE and not the state can we hope to protect freedom.” -President Ronald Reagan, 1983

“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” –A common quote from America’s founding era


Our Republic is one in which the people rule by delegating their authority to individuals they choose to represent them. Knowing this, how should citizens respond to what they see going on around them? Who is responsible to fix the problems at the local, state, and federal levels?

We’ve been waiting for a new leader to come along and fix everything, watching from the sidelines in horror and disbelief while blaming the politicians. 

But the responsibility and the power reside with the citizens to fix and keep this Republic. 

Adopt the language of liberty. Use your voice to “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”-Lev 25:10. This timeless reminder of truth engraved on the Liberty Bell is our wake up call.

Lack of voter enthusiasm could sink Hillary Clinton

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

The enthusiasm gap among voters is the deciding factor in elections; it tells us the true story.

In years when Republicans won big they controlled the enthusiasm gap:  1994 it was 44/33;  2002 it was 46/39; in 2010 it was a massive 63/44 and in 2014 it was 42/32. When Democrats won in 2006 they held a 52/41 edge in enthusiasm among their voters.   

So far Hillary Clinton’s campaign is not generating enthusiasm. 

A recent New York Times piece presents a serious warning for Clinton. It’s not based on a “feeling” but on surveys of her supporters.

Among voters aged 18 to 29 Hillary is getting severely upside down, (35/57) favorable /unfavorable approval ratings. By contrast Bill Clinton and Barack Obama got over 60% favorable ratings from these voters who were 19% of all turnout and supported Obama 60/37 over Mitt Romney.

These numbers are even worse as a result of the sharp drop off of these voters in 2014 which brought the Democrats their second major beat down in four years.

However, the really bad news comes from Clinton’s standing with African American and Hispanic voters. Here’s why.

In 2012, 13% of all voters were Black and more than 90% supported Obama which is widely considered to be the reason for his relatively easy victory. Likewise, he got 71% of the Hispanic vote. While the Hispanic vote is so evenly distributed as to make it a virtual non-factor in many states, in ordinary elections it serves as a bogeyman to scare Republican candidates into pandering to them at the expense of keeping their base intact.  Enter Donald Trump. He won’t pander to Hispanics or anyone else.     

At this early stage, Republican front runner Trump has seen his support among Blacks versus Hillary Clinton at a surprising 25% in at least one survey and a still encouraging 13% in a more recent poll.

Moreover Trump’s support among Hispanics seems to be holding at about 30%. Trump’s “major” blunders of “calling all Mexicans criminals” (which he did not) and saying “get him the hell out of here” when referring to a Black Lives Matter heckler don’t seem very relevant.

At this point it is hard to gauge the level of enthusiasm for a Trump presidency beyond what is suggested by the large crowds he draws; but compared to the small crowds Hillary draws, it has to be encouraging for Trump supporters.    


Illegal Aliens Have Written a Bill of Rights

United We Stay defines itself as: a gathering place for undocumented Americans to share our powerful stories and to showcase these thousands, even millions of stories, as a force to be reckoned with in rewriting immigration history.


Anyhow, what follow are the claims and demands made by the group United We Stay which proudly represents millions of aliens who have illegally invaded the United States. The mind boggling conceit evident in the makeshift preamble of the “Bill of Rights” written by United We Stay for the sundry thieves, rapists, murderers, gang-bangers and chronic lay-abouts which infest the United States will prepare readers for the hubris contained in the remainder of the document.



We, the Undocumented Americans, submit our Bill of Rights with the same determination as the nation’s founders to incorporate these rights into law across the land.

“We are the living embodiment of the American Dream”

We are here on American soil working for a stronger economy while reinvigorating the nation’s commitment toward democracy, and we should be afforded the same due process and equal protection guaranteed to all by the U.S. Constitution. We are the living embodiment of the American Dream and how we are treated by this nation reflects its commitment to its own ideals. Going forward, we  want to see the United States fulfill its historic democratic promise by making these rights a reality.

1. Acknowledgment that we are already here, that we are human beings with a right to be, that our mere presence cannot be deemed illegal or our existence alien.

2. Affirmation that we are to be treated with dignity and respect, not just because of who we are, but who you are – historic beneficiaries of immigrant struggles for the freedom to be.

3. Recognition of our right to be presented with a path to citizenship/residency as the first priority of future immigration policy combined with interim deferment of all law-abiding Undocumented Americans against detention and deportation.

4. Compelled authorization of birth certificates for our U.S.-born children to ensure their constitutionally guaranteed right to citizenship.

This gentleman demands protection against “Cruel and Unusual Punishment.” Exactly what protection did his victim receive?

5. Protection against cruel and unusual punishment, including the separation of our immediate families and incarceration without charges, hearings or representation. 

6. Access to non-discriminating public education and in-state tuition to ensure that our children realize their full potential for themselves and the country.

7. Guarantee of wage equality with a legal right to petition for wage theft or workplace mistreatment without jeopardizing our immigration status.

8. Assurance of humanitarian treatment, including medical care.

9. Protection against detention or deportation when we report a crime as a victim or as a witness.

10. Guarantee of the Declaration’s unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Just a few of the folks demanding Due Process and Equal Protection.

That United We Stay should have the monumental gall to equate its members with the Founders of our Nation tells the American people all we need to know about the arrogance of criminals who are encouraged to flaunt their lawlessness in the face of the public.

And by the way, Americans are DOCUMENTED. Illegal aliens are not.

Election Day will offer voters yet another politician, or Donald Trump

By John Porter, guest writer

The American people complain of having no one to take the reins of leadership against the army of Socialist Progressive Liberal politicians and biased Media moguls who are destroying our way of life. Well you may not like his arrogance, his hair, his swagger, his tone, his brashness, insulting remarks or something else about him. But one must be impressed with his power of conviction and willingness to express it, political correctness be hanged.

His name is Donald Trump. A strong man, a non-politician who owes nobody anything and promises he will bring America back to strength, world leadership and economic success. He will stand against the treachery of those in positions of political power both in America and foreign nations. He will challenge China, Japan, Mexico, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Islamic Terrorists and any other country or organization trying to defeat or destroy us. There are several people in the field of Republican Candidates who COULD do these things, but it appears Donald Trump is a man who WILL do them.

The path will not be an easy one, but Trump seems strong enough to endure the cunning of those who would set roadside bombs in his way to destroy him. It appeared from the first debate that even the Fox News organization is now in the camp of those who wish to take him down. But through that disgraceful on-slot, he demonstrated his strength of conviction when it became evident that the Fox moderators, especially Megyn Kelly, had specifically scripted questions to trip him up and take down his campaign.

Socialist, Progressive, Leftist groups have mounted campaigns against him. The Republican Party Hierarchy are opposed to his very presence in the field. Why? It may be because he is the only candidate, if elected, who will completely change the corrupt, crony culture of Washington, empty many offices, fire department heads and close some bureaucracies down completely. These were precisely the same actions taken by Andrew Jackson. The result was, the Washington politicians and media of that day hated him and the people loved him.

Political pundits are not discussing Trump’s plans for America. There are only personal attacks which often twist his words through a politically correct filter. But millions of Americans are hearing the words they themselves believe. He is willing to say what he and they think and not back down when confronted. Someone said, “He is rapidly becoming a modern day icon with the strength of a John Wayne that Americans look up to.”

Americans have grown tired of losing. We’re losing our exceptional-ism, losing our position of world leadership, losing the respect of other countries, losing our sovereignty to the United Nations, losing manufacturing jobs to other countries, losing our military strength, losing the battle of people illegally pouring into our country, losing our freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, the freedom to think and speak our minds, to bear arms, to locally run our own schools so our children may be taught what we want them to learn, to be responsible for ourselves. If not already lost, these are for certain under attack.

Can all of this be corrected? Yes, but not through timidity or by latching onto Political Correctness. Teddy Roosevelt, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan, our Founding Fathers all presided over the nations affairs during times when cowardice and compromise might have resulted in disaster.

Cowardly and outright America-hating politicians have betrayed the American people, leading us to the brink of oblivion. Can we depend upon Hillary Clinton to correct this situation? Can she be trusted to restore individual liberty? Can she be trusted at all!

For the upcoming election, voters can choose from a field of Party Approved politicians or select someone whose individuality has frightened both Political Parties into apoplexy.

Drop the gun or forget sex forever

by Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

April Lawson

When all else fails, try no sex. Chicago’s street violence is so bad that a very brave and self-composed South Side woman, April Lawson, is organizing black women to vow no sex until the killing stops, like now! “Make sure these fools put down their guns,” she’s telling her lady warriors. And her sex strike mission is based on Aristophanes’ classic Greek play, “Lysistrata!” To stop the perpetual war between Athens and Sparta, a strong Athenian   woman “explains to the other women: They are to withhold sexual privileges from their menfolk as a means of forcing them to bring an end to the war.”

What set Ms. Lawson off was seeing long lines of black males camped out in front of a new Chicago shoe store. “You’re watching these guys just like buying gym shoes and carrying on like life is normal,” Lawson said. “I saw the trailer to ‘Chi-Raq.'” Both Spike Lee and mother and activist from Auburn Gresham depict sex as the real change agent, and they mean business. “I vow to stay celibate until black men organize and create a strategy to keep the peace in our neighborhoods.” Lawson is saying! A gorgeous, young, Black female stands front and center in the video trailer surrounded by her other frustrated female cohorts. She’s wearing a black under bra with an over bra in purple. She’s mad, and she’s not going to take it anymore, no pun intended!

The Peloponnesian War between the two big city states had grown intolerable and endless. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, Lysistrata, “a strong Athenian woman with a great sense of individual responsibility,” convenes a large meeting of only females and outlines her sex strike to end war. “They are to LYSISTRATAwithhold sexual privileges from their menfolk as a means of forcing them to bring an end to the war,” she details. “The women agree to abjure all sexual pleasures, including various specifically mentioned sexual positions,” to bring Athens and Sparta to peace.

Other stage action in the Greek fable involves the older Athenian women’s seizure of the state treasury in the Acropolis. So without sex or money, the young guys are in a world of hurt. The women’s oath was solemn and sealed around a wine bowl! A state judge comes on stage to chastise the men for being unable to control their womenfolk. When his constables try to break into the Acropolis to seize the needed war funds, they “quickly are overwhelmed by groups of unruly women with long, strange names.”  While peace talks between Athens and Sparta eventually were solved after a naked figure of Reconciliation dances provocatively in front of the men, solving Chicago’s gang wars may not be so easy.

Jesse and Uncle Al have ginned up more Black crime than any White accused of racism

More people are being killed on the South and West sides than in Afghanistan, according to some reports. The recent revenge killing of a little 9 year old boy to get back at his father is beyond horrific! South side violence is so bad that reportedly Comcast has pulled its technicians from the area! So with no sex and no television, what are the gangs to do! One observer even said when a gang  shoot-out took place on either side of the Dan Ryan Expressway, the gang bangers were just left to sort themselves out with their own guns and bullets.

How ironic that Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the country. The city of broad shoulders is full of the Obama-Clinton-Alinsky philosophy of “rubbing resentments raw” to bring change for the oppressed. The Democrat City Council and succeeding Democrat mayors continue the cycle of progressive politics that is killing the GUN CONTROL 5city and its inhabitants. Who knows, maybe April Lawson’s plan of no sex will work. “I vow to stay celibate until black men organize and create a strategy to keep the peace in our neighborhoods,” she says.  She’s suggesting the silent no sex protest “might get them to think.”

But kidding aside, this Chicago street violence must stop. It’s a very bad scene. Why doesn’t

Mayor Emanuel ask the Governor to put Illinois’ National Guard on the street? Those innocent Chicago children and families do not deserve to live like this. If the Democrat political cabal really cared about their traditional voters, they would stop the violence now!
