FREEDOM RINGS 1776 is a conservative voice, defending the views of those who still believe in the constitution and opposing any and all who would lead us from our tried and true beliefs. We who still believe in the spirit of 1776 must oppose anyone who would set this nation on a course that will fundamentally transform America.

"Work will set you free." This was above the gate at Auschwitz 1. Why do we remember what has happened so long ago? Why do we explore the evil that exists in the minds of men. Because to forget is to loose the ability to learn from history. History has a habit of repeating itself. If we, as a people, do not learn from the history we are doomed to repeat it, be it good or bad.

What? You have never heard of Ali Saleh Kahlah al Marri? Well, to be perfectly honest, neither had I until today. He is one of those special terrorists we were not supposed to know about. However, he was so special that one of Obama's first acts in January of 2009 was to try to have him released. This man is a BIG fish, and now Obama has finally managed to free him in time for the big 2015 push I have projected. So far the US has not officially acknowledged his release.


In recent essays I have tried to show that the truth is often elusive, that obvious answers are obviously wrong, that connecting the dots between two events is not enough, for those two events are but two parts of a very deceptive maze, meant to be difficult to grasp and nearly incomprehensible to most. Were that not so, all of America would be awake by now instead of retreating ever further into a world of escapism and denial. Lost and bewildered in the maze has become a way of life for a people once free; a people who had long assumed that we had reached the pinnacle in man's pursuit of liberty and that everything would go on forever, unchallenged, unthreatened, and unchanging. So much for illusion, and wishful thinking, for today the maze is closing around us, and wishful thinking has become a baited trap for the unwary.


The United States, The UK, Germany, Holland, Spain; it matters not where you look today, political leaders have an agenda and it has absolutely nothing to do with the welfare of their people. Dismissing the concerns of their citizens and promoting Islam is the name of the political game that they play, and I believe that Obama said it best with his recent statement...


I closed my last essay Jews, Netanyahu, France, Islam, And The Agenda with an open ended lead to exploring The Agenda. Shall we go there?

It is human nature to believe the obvious, but quite often what is obvious is made to appear so to mislead you. When deception is involved we must disregard the obvious and dig for the truth, and when you stand in harm's way it is best to dig as fast as you can. To that end I have dedicated the last five years to research and revealing to all who would heed my warnings what that research has uncovered.


As a rule, with very few exceptions, politicians sicken me. Benjamin Netanyahu is one such exception. Unlike most political figures Bibi has the best interest of his people at heart, and does his best to provide for those interests in the face of a politically corrupt world. He was one of the world leaders up front in the anti-terrorism march of two million people in Paris. That is what we saw and in his courage he inspired not only the Jews of the world, but all freedom loving people everywhere. And now the back-story: The French political figures did not want him there!


Wasn't it great to see Chancellor Angela Merkel getting a little comforting hug from Obama's number one ally, the ever popular socialist leader of France, President Hollande. Maybe he'd seen the naked photo of the good chancellor on the internet and he fancied his chances.


The following was not meant to be a blog. It was a comment directed at me, but the message rings loud and clearly, and should be read by all.

Danny, I can only agree with you on most things. The problem as always is convincing others who spend their days agreeing but not believing. What do I mean by that? Well, day after day I look on twitter, I read essays by some of the most intelligent thoughtful people in sources ranging from David Horowitz and his various outlets, Thomas Sowell, the people of PJTV, like Bill Whittle, the Daily Mail (UK), The Guardian, WaPo, Huffpo, comments from articles written ect, ect. I'm sure everyone gets the picture and does the same.


“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others were cowards and hypocrites. They never had the courage to recognize their motives. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. How does one man assert his power over another? By making him suffer. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement – a world of fear and treachery and torment. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.”
George Orwell-1984 ... Hat Tip to Patrick Van Nuland.


I have long warned about the leftist political agenda that is leading our nation to ruin, about the pro communist tendencies among many of our residents, and of the apathy that has long infected this nation. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Today I shall speak through such pictures, keeping my own thoughts to a bare minimum.
