“Regimes collapse when people are no longer afraid and think they’re no longer alone.”

“Universities in the United States are often today hotbeds of anti-Americanism, libel, and censorship that combine to generate in students and in the broader culture at the very least disdain and at worst outright hatred for this country.
The Founders insisted that universities should be at the core of preserving American republicanism by instructing students and future leaders of its true basis and instilling in them not just an understanding but a reverence for its principles and core documents. Today, our higher education system does almost the precise opposite. Colleges peddle resentment and contempt for American principles and history alike, in the process weakening attachment to our shared heritage.
In order to build up a healthy, united citizenry, scholars, students, and all Americans must reject false and fashionable ideologies that obscure facts, ignore historical context, and tell America’s story solely as one of oppression and victim-hood rather than one of imperfection but also unprecedented achievement toward freedom, happiness, and fairness for all. Historical revisionism that tramples honest scholarship and historical truth, shames Americans by highlighting only the sins of their ancestors, and teaches claims of systemic racism that can only be eliminated by more discrimination, is an ideology intended to manipulate opinions more than educate minds.
Deliberately destructive scholarship shatters the civic bonds that unite all Americans. It silences the discourse essential to a free society by breeding division, distrust, and hatred among citizens. And it is the intellectual force behind so much of the violence in our cities, suppression of free speech in our universities, and defamation of our treasured national statues and symbols.
To restore our society, academics must return to their vocation of relentlessly pursuing the truth and engaging in honest scholarship that seeks to understand the world and America’s place in it.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

“… I don’t care what it takes; how long it takes. We cannot accept Joe Biden. We cannot accept this voter fraud, because the basic truth of ‘Government of the people and by the people and for the people’ has been removed. If you have elections that are not free, you are a Third World Country; you’ve already been taken over. We’ve been tacitly invaded and conquered. So, somebody, I wish I had that gift of Patton. Somebody needs to shake the Church to its core and tell ’em, “We must act as a unit, a populous movement and we must do it now.””

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
~ The Founding Fathers
“I was in New York on September 11 when those planes hit the World Trade Center.
At the time, it seemed like it was a local thing, but three or four days later,
by the time we drove across the country in the bus,
we realized it wasn’t a local thing.
You could really feel the states become united. We became the United States of America.”
