Theme Quotes for July: Victory for American Liberty
“The only way we can keep our freedom is to work at it. Not some of us. All of us. Not some of the time, but all of the time.” Spencer W. Kimball
Christ has not called us to be nice but to be good. Nice people never confront evil, but good people do. ~Bryan Fischer
This is the last day in which the great consummation of God’s purposes will be made, the only dispensation in which the Lord has promised that sin will not prevail.~Ezra Taft Benson
Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God. ~Benjamin Franklin
All through the town, the army went about its work, but the celebrations were few. If the war was to be won, this day was only one victory. There had to be many more.
It is the arrogance of them all, of William Howe and King George, all those who so blithely dismiss this army. Yet we have a purpose, and if we are allowed the opportunity, we will defeat you. ~George Washington, after the first victory of the American Revolution, Trenton, NJ. The American Revolution was won against overwhelming odds. Shaara, Jeff: The Glorious Cause, p.151
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” ~Winston Churchill
You cannot submit to evil without allowing evil to grow. Each time the good are defeated, or each time they yield, they only cause the forces of evil to grow stronger. Greed feeds greed, and crime grows with success. Our giving up what is ours merely to escape trouble would only create greater trouble for someone else. ~Louis L’Amour
Remember this. If you stop pushing on, you lose. It is always a little further to the top than you think. ~Louis L’Amour
Obedience to God is the habit of a free man. ~James Talmage
Beginning with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, down to the ministry of Christ, and on down to our day, there has always been and will ever be an effort to deceive, derail, oppose, and frustrate the plan of life. ~Lawrence E. Corbridge
Opposition, criticism, and antagonism are companions to the truth. ~Lawrence E. Corbridge
“Burned out by drought,
Drowned out by flud waters,
Et out by jackrabbits,
Sold out by sheriff,
Still here!” (quoted by Gordon B. Hinckley, from a sign that hung by a rusty staple to a run-down barbed-wire fence in Texas.)
Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. ~Newt Gingrich
“Many of the great achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged men who kept on working.” ~ Unknown
Never grow a wishbone where a backbone ought to be.
The opposite of Courage: “Most of the world fears the raised fist while we in America fear the raised eyebrow.” ~Mack Stiles

Stress Relief Tip of the Month: Be not Weary in Well Doing
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. ~Galatians 6:9 Christians faced with persecution in the 19th century were reminded by their leader: “All things must come to pass in their time. Be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. “

The Dinner Topic Theme for July: Victory for American Liberty
“Defining Moments” is a monthly feature. Kind of a fancy name for a glossary. When I was growing up, we had a huge dictionary on a tall, narrow, rolling table. Whenever we asked the meaning of a word, we were told to “look it up.” We still do that. You’d be surprised at some of the interesting things you find in the dictionary, especially the 1828 American Dictionary. Now, with all the twists and spins that politicians and the media do to common words, it’s valuable to go back to the original meaning. It can make for interesting conversation, too.
This month’s Defining Moment: What is Right, What is Left? Where did these terms in today’s political vernacular come from?
“I have not yet begun to fight!” A call to stay the course, not surrender, and not give up, inspired by John Paul Jones, courageous patriot of the American Revolution
Hold Fast to the Word of God
The Parenting Value for this month: Integrity
Famous Birthdays: John Paul Jones, William Blackstone, Alexis de Tocqueville, Milton Friedman
Book Review: Rush Revere and the First Patriots
Bible Story: Elisha reminds us that hosts of heaven are pulling for us; they that are for us are greater than they who are against us
Faith: Beware of spiritual bondage
Culture: The Plague of Apathy
Abuse Report—There are so many government and other abuses now that there is not room to report them all, so they will be summarized and listed in one report, with links to the complete article.
Moral Repair Plan—4 ways to end the illegal immigration crisis
Truth Detectors: In these days when Truth is endangered by political expediency, it is important that we learn to discern Truth from Error, fraud, or downright deception. To find other articles on this topic, type Truth Detectors [hyphenate the two words to filter out topics] in the search bar of this site.

This summer we are bringing back theme-related posts that have been popular with our readers
A Tale of Two Nations: Compare the French Revolution and the American Revolution
Star-Spangled Banner: Remember and honor the sacrifices of our American Heroes
Character Lesson from Lord of the Rings: See It Through
Who Stole Our Judeo-Christian Culture?
History: It started when we threw God out of the schools
What can we do when laws violate the Constitution?
And as always—current events, updates, and analysis
Traditional Bible-believing parents may have to consider withdrawing their children from public schools to protect your family spiritually and financially from the rising tide of persecution and ruinous lawsuits by anti-Christian fascists.
Seeing the widespread injury done in a few weeks, (many incidents go unreported) be aware of what might have transpired by next fall.
If it is not possible for you to home school, try to teach your children Judeo-Christian values at home. The easiest way to do this is to tell stories and discuss principles at the family dinner table. I hope these dinner topics help you with this vital effort. Just don’t give up! Our precious children are worth fighting for.
1. New! Tea Party Update.
Every month we will keep you informed on the latest projects and progress of the Tea Party, with an updated link to our monthly newsletter:
It is important to understand that the Tea Party is not a third political party. Nor does it represent all the slanderous falsehoods hurled upon them by those who hate America and her Founders. It is organized to restore Constitutional principles to the government of America. If you love the USA with good, old-fashioned patriotism, then the Tea Party is the best organization to work for the principles and values you cherish.
2. Obamacare: Let’s do all we can to support the worthy grass roots efforts that are growing nationwide. Remember, 85% of the American people do not want Obamacare.
3. Nullification. States can choose to ignore an unconstitutional national law by passing a bill banning implementation. The Supreme Court did rule that the states cannot be forced to implement Obamacare on a state level. This can be used, not only for Obamacare, but any other unconstitutional law. South Carolina has nullified Obamacare!
4. Study the U.S. Constitution! It is the last remaining safeguard of our precious freedoms! A good way to do this is to study the monthly Constitution series from The 5,000 Year Leap. To access this series of posts, type US Constitution Series in this site’s search bar.
Thanks for visiting. Come often; Stay Late.
Remember our American Heroes on Independence Day!
