Convention of States

Convention of States

Citizen patriots themselves can and are actively drain the swamp in a civil, peaceful, and legal manner. A major movement began in 2013 called the Convention of States. Click here to download the Articles of the Convention of States. By calling and convening the first-ever Convention of States, the states and the people can strip Washington D.C. of its power and return that power to those city councils and state legislatures, where voters can truly hold their elected officials accountable. Check out this video from Prager University, which gives you a great overview:

Term Limits: Explained

What Are Term Limits and Why Do We Need Them?

Our recent article on Citisun entitled “Trump Vows To Drain The Swamp In Washington D.C.” sparked interest, and raised a question worth exploring further, regarding term limits. Trump vowed repeatedly during his campaign to see to it that a Constitutional amendment would be added to impose term limits to all members of Congress.  In response to our article on draining the swamp, a comment / question by a Facebook poster asked:

Drain The Swamp

Trump Vows to Drain The Swamp In Washington DC

Edited by John Coonen – In a lengthy Saturday address in Gettysburg, PA, Donald Trump laid out a seven point plan to “drain the swamp” inWashington, DC, and revitalize the American economy. Trump pledged that in his first 100 days in office, he will restore “honesty, accountability and change to Washington” through the following steps:

Trans-Pacific Partnership

What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement? (TPP)

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a secretive, multinational trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement.

The main problems are two-fold:

(1) Digital Policies that Benefit Big Corporations at the Expense of the Public: The IP chapter would have extensive negative ramifications for users’ freedom of expression, right to privacy and due process, as well as hindering peoples’ abilities to innovate. Other chapters of the agreement encourage your personal data to be sent borders with limited protection for your privacy, and allow foreign corporations to sue countries for laws or regulations that promote the public interest,

(2) Lack of Transparency: The entire process has shut out multi-stakeholder participation and is shrouded in secrecy.

GOP Unity Pledge

Open Letter To Reince Priebus: Keep The Unity Pledge For 2020

Dear GOP: Keep the Unity Pledge for 2020 

Back in April of 2015, I disagreed with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and his “Unity Pledge,” but clearly I was wrong. I thought it was disrespectful toward all of the primary candidates. I thought supporting the eventual winning candidate would go without saying (or pledging). I also thought it was an underhanded way to force one candidate (Donald Trump) to either leave the GOP in the spring of 2015, or promise not to run as independent in the case of his loss. Trump bowed to the RNC and other candidates’ demand, famously signing the pledge in Sharpee marker.

Change We Can Believe In?

Eight Years Later, This Isn’t Change I Believed In

Will Obama’s Legacy Be The “Hateful Eight” Years of Change?

Now that more than eight years have passed since the days when Barack Obama made his meteoric rise in politics, it’s fair to say that he’s had his chance to deliver on his campaign promise of “change you can believe in.”  The effects of his Presidency will be felt for decades no doubt, and his legacy has yet to be written, but for this snapshot in time in September of 2016, what positive and meaningful change has Barack Obama delivered?

Rick Monday’s Patriotic Act In 1976 vs. Colin Kaepernick’s Inaction In 2016 Illustrates How Much “Change” We’ve Made In Just 40 Years

In April of 1976, Gerald Ford was our President the day two protestors attempted to burn the U.S. flag in center field of Dodgers Stadium, before thousands of fans who had come to see the visiting Chicago Cubs play the L.A. Dodgers. Before the two were able to light the flag on fire, Cubs center fielder Rick Monday swooped in to save the flag, as you see in this historic video clip from that day at Dodgers Stadium. 

How To Pray the Rosary

How To Pray The Rosary

The purpose of the Rosary is to help keep in memory certain principal events or mysteries in the history of our salvation, and to thank and praise God for them. The Rosary is a powerful prayer to say, to meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary.

Settlers of Catan

Settlers of Catan: Two Thumbs Up!

I love games, but I’m one of those stick-in-the-muds that has to warm up to playing. Earlier this week, my daughter and son-in-law warmed me up to a game I had never heard of, called “Settlers of Catan.” Apparently, I’ve been missing out, because this board game is beyond trending. Well, now, I’m hooked. We played till midnight last night (a work night!), and while I lost for the fourth time, and I’m not a very kind loser, I’m starting to get the hang of it.

Pope Francis

Vatican: Pope’s Words Not a Personal Attack on Trump

By Cruxnow – ROME: Reacting to widespread media coverage of a perceived war of words on Thursday between Pope Francis and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a Vatican spokesman on Friday insisted the pope’s comments — that someone who would build a border wall is not Christian — were not a personal attack.

“The pope said what we all know when we follow his teaching and his positions: that we should not build walls, but bridges,” the Rev. Federico Lombardi said to Vatican Radio. “It is not a specific issue, limited to this case,” he said.

Donald Trump Takes South Carolina

Trump Takes South Carolina

Trump Wins South Carolina Primary, Followed By Rubio & Cruz. Bush Bows Out.

Donald Trump took the winner’s spot in South Carolina’s GOP primary, after a rocky week on the campaign trail.  He continued to touch the nerves of voters in South Carolina, with blistering rhetoric about combating terrorism, ending illegal immigration, and a less than presidentialretort to Pope Francis. 

Did Pope Francis Really Imply Donald Trump Is Not Christian? Unlikely.

I read this CNN headline, and it perplexed me. So, I looked up the actual interview between the Pope and reporters. Here is the quote, from Pope Francis on February 18th, 2016:

“A person who thinks only about building walls,
wherever they may be, and not building bridges,
is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel.”  

OOPS! Did Texas Judge Guevara Just Fuel Scalia Death Conspiracy Theorists’ Fire?

Judge Gives Lesson On How NOT To Handle Conspiracy Theorists

Infowars correspondent David Knight goes to the source of the possible scuttlebutt that’s now smoldering in West Texas, and asks Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara for an explaination of how she handled the procedure in the recent death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Judge Guevara is the judge who declared the cause of death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to be “natural causes,” via telephone on Saturday, February 13th – without having seen the body, and without a post mortem medical examination.
