The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism and the Constitution
Forces on the Left seek to fundamentally change our nation by disregarding the principles upon which it was founded. Members of the media and liberal politicians seek to damage our economic, political, and educational systems for their gain. The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution:
exposes the Left's plan to undermine the Christian values on which the nation was built
reveals how attacks on Christianity are part of the political agenda of Liberals
provides a clear understanding of capitalism and how free markets benefit all people
reveals how Liberals undermine capitalism with their socialistic policies
shows how the Constitution’s purpose to restrain government and protect individual liberty
unmasks the efforts of the liberal Left to subvert the power and relevance of the Constitution
exposes the current corruption in government and culture which undermines the principles on which the nation was founded
America faces a war of values that will determine its future and likely decide if it will continue as a great nation on the world stage. Mike Huckabee and Steve Feazel sound a needed alarm to Christians and conservatives to answer the call to action and push back against the forces that desire to move America from its heritage and founding principles. It is time for God's people to take an active role in the political arena, not with violence, but with votes and voices that proclaim and defend the values that made our nation the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known.

Tech leaders agree with Congress that we need to rein in AI development
The two parties in Congress can’t seem to agree on much these days, but at least they can agree with many of the rest of us that the rapid development of artificial intelligence is frightening and needs to be reined in.
Elon Musk, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and other tech giants signed an open letter calling for a six-month pause in advanced AI development, citing “profound risks to society and humanity” (see any "Terminator" movie.)
The question is, can the dangers of artificial intelligence be held back by Congress, which isn’t famous for possessing natural intelligence? And even if they do pass some sort of regulation, that won’t stop its development in other nations, like China. This is a worldwide threat, but how do you regulate it when it’s going on all over the world? And please don’t suggest that we need a one-world government overseen by benevolent robots.
U.S. Senate: The COVID-19 “emergency” is done
Another thing on which at least some Congress members of both parties agree is that the COVID-19 “emergency” is done. Yesterday, 21 Senate Democrats joined Republicans to pass a resolution declaring the pandemic to be over. It passed by 68-23 in the Senate after passing the House by 229-197. President Biden opposes the bill but will sign it. Incidentally, it comes months after he said himself that the pandemic is over.
A White House official said, “The administration will continue working with agencies to wind down the national emergency with as much notice as possible to Americans who could potentially be impacted.” I have the feeling that it’s not Americans who are being impacted as much as it’s the agencies that don’t want to give up the power. Too bad. They’ve become the cure that’s worse than the disease. COVID is now endemic and we have to live with it forever, but that doesn’t mean we have to live with a government that uses the guise of a health emergency to trample on our Constitutional rights forever.
Holding tech companies accountable
While some politicians are trying to defend TikTok despite its pernicious influence on children (ahem, AOC), I’m proud to report that the Governor of Arkansas is holding their feet to the fire.
For the past few years, the loud woke minority has pushed its narratives while silencing anyone who questioned them, as if truth were determined by who’s allowed to speak. But at long last, the shaky foundations of those narratives are finally starting to be revealed.
One of the most often repeated is that if minors suffer gender confusion, the best (if not only) way to treat it is with dangerous chemicals and irreversible body-altering surgery; and that anyone who opposes that is a “transphobe” who hates trans people and wants them to die, because they will commit suicide if they aren’t allowed to medically “transition" (FYI, threatening suicide if you don't get your way is not the best argument that you don't have a mental condition.) It should be patently obvious that none of that is true, and now some people are finally daring to stand up against it.
For instance, a study by the Heritage Foundation discovered that previous studies claiming higher suicide rates among kids prevented from getting gender-altering hormones and surgery were extremely flawed. Their own more rigorous study found that in states where young people were allowed to get these treatments without parental consent, their suicide rates actually significantly increased.
As for the narrative of trans youths being at much higher risk of being victims of violent fanatics, a study in Quebec found that transgender youth were actually the group with the highest risk of “violent radicalization” themselves.
And in a subscriber-only story at PJ Media, Matt Margolis reports that FBI statistics refute the Human Rights Campaign’s claim of a “trans genocide,” and that trans people are being targeted more than anyone else for hate crimes, which is used as justification for that violent radicalization and tomorrow’s planned “Day of Vengeance.” According to the FBI, in 2021, trans people accounted for 2% of hate crime victims, far fewer than blacks (31%), whites (13%), Hispanics (6%), Jews or Asians (4% each.) Out of 271 documented hate crimes against trans people, only two were homicides.
Of course, any hate crime against anyone is one too many and should never be tolerated. But two homicides out of a US population of 330 million (and 1.6 million trans people) is not a genocide.
Whether you think the biggest problem in this issue is kids being deprived of medical treatments they might later seriously regret, or kids being given those treatments over parental objections, the attempt to gain more political power by radicalizing confused kids with lies isn’t helping anyone, least of all the “trans kids” the radicals claim to care about.
