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.

The bulk of this essay is going to be about terrorism and how our Progressive leaders, across all of the western nations, helped to set the stage for the emergence of those terrorists and continue to aid them as their horrifying powers grow. Before going there, however, I would like to use one bit of news, seemingly unrelated, but actually quite relative, for it reveals the duplicity of those we once trusted with our highest aspirations. Allow me to present none other than Marco Rubio, and man once hailed by the conservative right and considered as a possible candidate for President. Today Americans, not nearly as concerned about terrorism as they should be, regard illegal immigration, ObamaCare, and the economy, to be our greatest concerns. Well, here is an 'Up Yours' salute from a man once trusted, and he is but one more indicator of the treason that has taken root in our nation's capitol.


In recent writings and comments to associates I have been taking up the topic of 'experts' as they speak of specifics while failing to address an overview of the big picture. Surely you have heard the tale of the blind men and the elephant. If not, this is a link to the parable, and this is an excerpt from it: 'the parable implies that one's subjective experience can be true, but that such experience is inherently limited by its failure to account for other truths or a totality of truth. At various times the parable has provided insight into the relativism, opaqueness or inexpressible nature of truth, the behavior of experts in fields where there is a deficit or inaccessibility of information, the need for communication, and respect for different perspectives.'


The recent debacle in Yemen was far too well enacted to be anything short of a well planned and choreographed submission of the U.S. military before the forces of Islam. The bloodletting and the disgrace of Benghazi taught the Obama regime a lesson they are unwilling to repeat, and yet the narrative must continue; America must bow as the black flag of terrorism is raised above our territory. The surrender of our embassy in Yemen was designed to be a deliberate capitulation to terrorism, and the long term effects of that capitulation are equally well planned, and few understand the true ramifications of some of our finest warriors retreating in disgrace.
