In February 2013 I gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. Standing a few feet from President Obama, I warned my fellow citizens of the dangers facing our country and called for a return to the principles that made America great. Many Americans heard and responded, but our nation’s decline has continued. Today the danger is greater than ever before, and I have never shared a more urgent message than I do now.

Liberalism...the Iago of Barack Obama who will as tenderly lead him by the nose as asses are. This liberalism poison is as destructive as 100 Hiroshimas.
Progressism-Liberalism is led by the elite wealthy and atheistic hard Left that is as cold as Lenin's tomb. To the Left, mentioning God-Jesus is an offence worthy of American style Archepelego Gulag imprisonment with Saul Alinsky, Margaret Sanger, Bill Maher, N.A.M.B.L.A., Charles Darwin as National Nannies.

This is a study of how intellectuals as a class affect modern societies by shaping the climate of opinion in which official policies develop, on issues ranging from economics to law to war and peace. You will hear a withering and clear-eyed critique about (but not for) intellectuals that explores their impact on public opinion, policy, and society at large.

Starring Orson Welles, Anges Moorehead, and Ray Collins, The Count of Monte Cristo is a tale of revenge and retribution. Edmond Dantès, a young, energetic sailor, is falsely accused of treason on his wedding day and incarcerated in the forbidding Château d'If. His escape and ultimate revenge on those who wronged him makes this one of the most thrilling stories in French literature, as compelling now as when it was first published in 1846.

Morris and McGann have documented exactly how the United States is getting screwed, and how to stop it.

The liberals are destroying America and if Obama is reelected immorality will be the norm. Just as Europe is rotting inside and worse than WWI and WWll combined the damage being done by liberals. The path of least resistance will overtake this nation and wear down America's defenders of patriotism, family values, and will be interpreted as hatred, bigotry, racism, un-American, homophobism, if not already. It'll get to the point to being a criminal offense i.e. fines, confiscationeven jail. Even those in the atheist community has actually mouth-off that teaching Creation as opposed to evolution is child abuse. It is past the infancy stage and to a large degree threatning to become law. Even while the crazed maniacal terrorists are becoming more bold, ruthless and diabolical. "Screwed" define the heart and pulse of America.

Alexander the Great endures as one of the most admired and emulated leaders in world history. In our time, his example of unprecedented and unparalleled success has inspired leaders of business and government, from media mogul Ted Turner (who keeps a bronze bust of Alexander in his office) to Desert Storm commander General Norman Schwarzkopf (who credits Alexander's tactical innovations for his dramatic flanking maneuver against the Iraqi army in the liberation of Kuwait).
