State Out Of The Union

State Out of the Union is award-winning journalist and historian Jeff Biggers’ riveting account of Arizona, the famed frontier state whose conflict over immigration and state’s rights has become a national bellwether. Biggers shows how Arizona’s long history of labor and civil rights battles, its contentious entry into the union, as well as cyclical upheavals over immigration rights, place the state front and center in a greater American story playing out across the United States. From President Eisenhower’s Operation Wetback to the legacy of Arizona native son César Chávez to the powerful influence of the state’s politicians, like Sen. Barry Goldwater and Tea Party President Russell Pearce, Biggers reveals how Arizona has played a pivotal role in determining the nation’s conservative and liberal agendas. Today, more than 25 state legislatures have introduced anti-immigration bills that are virtual copies of Arizona’s controversial SB 1070 “papers please” law. The state is ground zero in the clash over a historic demographic shift taking place across the country with the rise of a newly empowered Latino electorate. But Arizona is not only home to some of the most virulent anti-immigration legislation in the country—it is also the birthplace of a new movement of young Latino activists and allies who have not only challenged the self-proclaimed architect of SB 1070 in a historic recall election, but are also mobilizing to defend the state’s education system from censorship. A lasting and important work of cultural history, State Out of the Union vividly unveils the showdown over the American Dream in Arizona—and its impact on the future of the nation.

History, Romance, & Destiny... Daring Pioneers Tame the Frontier is an exquisite saga of Dr. Jean (John) Baptiste Elzèar Burel’s lifelong desire to cross the Atlantic Ocean to the beckoning new America. With his naval surgeon license in one hand and his medical chest in the other, he followed Marquis de Lafayette to Colonial America during the Revolutionary War. During the war he fell passionately in love and married a beautiful Acadian French woman in Philadelphia. After the war they made plans to return to his home at Ollioules, France. Homeward bound, the bourgeois doctor boarded the ship in Philadelphia with his new bride and their few belongings. There on deck he was unexpectedly forced to choose between his beloved homeland and family in France and his wife with child. Disembarking the ship with grave disappointment, John knowingly forfeited his inheritance as sole heir. Struggling to survive in Philadelphia, oftentimes John sat quietly admiring the beautiful woman who owned his heart as he secretly yearned for his prominent family and lifestyle on the Mediterranean Coast of France. Standing on the threshold of the newly independent America, the young doctor decided to take his wife and infant son and pioneer down the Great Wagon Road into the raw frontier of South Carolina. Believing he would build a new and prosperous life, he settled at Goshen Hill between the Tyger and Enoree Rivers within the lawless backcountry of South Carolina. Fighting the dangers and hardships of the frontier, and the recurring restlessness to return to France, John and his family carved out a simple life. Although disappointed at times, within the walls of his log home the enduring love and warmth of his wife and six children transcended adversity and hardships of the outside world. The heartwarming story is filled with humanity as John faced his inevitable destiny. The first novel in the trilogy closes with Dr. Burel’s widow standing helplessly in her front yard watching the wagon train take her spirited children and grandchildren west in search of richer land and prosperity. It was déjà vu!

Our Divided Political Heart

America today is at a political impasse; we face a nation divided and discontented. Acclaimed political commentator E.J. Dionne argues that Americans can't agree on who we are as a nation because we can't agree on who we've been, or what it is, philosophically and spiritually, that makes us "Americans." Dionne places our current quarrels in the long-standing tradition of struggle between two core values: the love of individualism and our reverence for community. Both make us who we are, and to ignore either one is to distort our national character. He sees the current Tea Party as a representation of hyper-individualism, and takes on their agenda-serving distortions of history, from the Revolution to the Civil War and the constitutional role of government. Tea Partiers have reacted fiercely to President Obama, who seeks to restore a communitarian balance - a cause in American liberalism which Dionne traces through recent decades. The ability of the American system to self-correct may be one of its greatest assets, but we have been caught in cycles of over-correcting. Dionne seeks, through an understanding of our factious past, to rediscover the idea of true progress, and the confidence that it can be achieved.

The Tea Party And The Remaking Of Republican Conservatism

This revised edition features a new afterword, updated through the 2016 election. On February 19, 2009, CNBC commentator Rick Santelli delivered a dramatic rant against Obama administration programs to shore up the plunging housing market. Invoking the Founding Fathers and ridiculing "losers" who could not pay their mortgages, Santelli called for "Tea Party" protests. Over the next two years, conservative activists took to the streets and airways, built hundreds of local Tea Party groups, and weighed in with votes and money to help right-wing Republicans win electoral victories in 2010. In this penetrating new study, Harvard University's Theda Skocpol and Vanessa Williamson go beyond images of protesters in Colonial costumes to provide a nuanced portrait of the Tea Party. What they find is sometimes surprising. Drawing on grassroots interviews and visits to local meetings in several regions, they find that older, middle-class Tea Partiers mostly approve of Social Security, Medicare, and generous benefits for military veterans. Their opposition to "big government" entails reluctance to pay taxes to help people viewed as undeserving "freeloaders" - including immigrants, lower income earners, and the young. At the national level, Tea Party elites and funders leverage grassroots energy to further longstanding goals such as tax cuts for the wealthy, deregulation of business, and privatization of the very same Social Security and Medicare programs on which many grassroots Tea Partiers depend. Elites and grassroots are nevertheless united in hatred of Barack Obama and determination to push the Republican Party sharply to the right. The Tea Party and the Remaking of Republican Conservatism combines fine-grained portraits of local Tea Party members and chapters with an overarching analysis of the movement's rise, impact, and likely fate.

Christian Reconstruction

This is the first critical history of Christian Reconstruction and its founder and champion, theologian and activist Rousas John Rushdoony (1916–2001). Drawing on exclusive access to Rushdoony's personal papers and extensive correspondence, Michael J. McVicar demonstrates the considerable role Reconstructionism played in the development of the radical Christian Right and an American theocratic agenda. As a religious movement, Reconstructionism aims at nothing less than "reconstructing" individuals through a form of Christian governance that, if implemented in the lives of U.S. citizens, would fundamentally alter the shape of American society. McVicar examines Rushdoony's career and traces Reconstructionism as it grew from a grassroots, populist movement in the 1960s to its height of popularity in the 1970s and 1980s. He reveals the movement's galvanizing role in the development of political conspiracy theories and survivalism, libertarianism and antistatism, and educational reform and homeschooling. The book demonstrates how these issues have retained and in many cases gained potency for conservative Christians to the present day, despite the decline of the movement itself beginning in the 1990s. McVicar contends that Christian Reconstruction has contributed significantly to how certain forms of religiosity have become central, and now familiar, aspects of an often controversial conservative revolution in America.

Teaching Children The 28 Principles Of Liberty

Both a manual and a program, "Teaching Children the 28 Principles of Liberty" expounds upon the principles in Cleon Skousen's book, "The 5000 Year Leap," and lays out a program to help adults teach the principles to children.This is not just a rewrite Skousen's book, but a manual for adults to teach children ages 8-11 these principles. The principles are not difficult to understand, but Skousen wrote his book for adults, not children. Each lesson teaches one principle per each hour-long meeting, with fun games, activities, role-plays, crafts, songs, and thoughtful, reflective discussions. The book is also a program. To present these lessons and entice children to want to learn them, the children join a club, called the Constitution Club. Each club member has a leadership position in the club. Every club has to have a president. This club also has a secretary of defense, a secretary of the treasury, a secretary of the interior, a chief of staff, and so forth. The club members all have specific responsibilities in their club. Club meetings start with an opening ceremony, including a prayer and pictures and quotes from our Founding Fathers supporting the principle learned about in that club meeting. They get to wear club uniforms. They receive immediate rewards for good behavior, such as participating in the activities, showing up on time, fulfilling their duties in their leadership positions. At the end of the 28 club meetings, if they fulfill all of the requirements they receive a beautiful plaque with their name engraved on it, the coveted James Madison Award.The layout is much like a cookbook: each club meeting lesson spells out what supplies the adult leader will need and step-by-step instructions for every activity. We are living the results of generations of people NOT knowing these principles. We elect leaders from the president on down to city councilmen who don't know these principles. We are how many trillions of dollars in debt? Our economy is stagnant. Our country is declining morally. Property rights are ignored. Religious liberty is allowed only if it doesn't interfere with the government's interests. One may like to elect leaders who will govern and lead following principles of liberty. But campaign trickery will only go so far. What needs to happen is for adults, especially parents, to teach their children these principles. When that happens the people will not have to be tricked into voting for the virtuous candidate, but they will seek him or her out and know what to look for. This will not happen in one election cycle. It has taken 100 years for Progressive Socialism to infiltrate our country; it may take a generation or longer to turn things around, one child's heart and mind at a time.

Volume 1 of Stalking the Antichrists and Their False Nuclear Prophets, Nuclear Gladiators, and Spirit Warriors,1940-1965 is essentially an enhanced memoir. It is based for the most part on my personal observations and knowledge and specialized information from my academic studies of history, political science, and literature at Grove City College and the University of Chicago,as well as my professional insights into the heart of the U. S. Navy (1953-1957, 1960-1961[OP- 09D]) as an Air Intelligence Officer in Hawaii and Japan and the Pentagon; political- military/counsellor assignments in the State Department as a Foreign Service Officer(FSO-6) at the American embassy in Paris (1962-64); and a speechwriter in the Navy Department (1965). In volume 2, the textual narrative begins with the end of my specific actions/ activities in the Navy and Foreign Service in July 1965, which I have called How I Lived in History, 1950-1965. In retrospect my entire Navy careerfrom my commissioning as Ensign USNR, 1355 AIO, in early September 1953 at Naval Station, Newport, Rhode Island, to my first honorable discharge at Treasure Island on August 27, 1957was in preparation to an understanding of World War II and the Cold War.

There is an old story of a famous business tycoon that was near death. His lifelong business partner approached him on his deathbed and asked if hed like to see his great grandchild. The business executive opened his eyes and whispered in his associates ear, No, my friend, I do not want to know what Ive missed. More and more Americans are missing out on the greatness of their country; its passion for excellence, its commitment to the dignity and self-worth of each individual, and its belief that every person has the right to achieve their own vision for success. Chaos, confusion, disappointment, and hopelessness have pushed and pulled Americans into a state of dependency. From the individual, to the family, to our local communities, Americans are constantly looking for others to solve the problems and challenges they face. This has lead to victimology, class warfare, and ultimately bad public policy where a culture of dependency is becoming the new normal. As people think themselves into believing that they cant make it on their own they are rejecting their own potential and capacity to act. Worse, they are missing out on the person they were destined to become.

Our Founding Fathers’ vision for America is under attack—and you can save it. America is a nation unique in the world, a government born under the radical idea of working for the people—not just for a powerful few. Our blueprint? The U.S. Constitution, a brilliant framework of common-sense rules necessary for self-governance. It works no matter which political party is in power. But for more than 150 years, the moral code upon which the Constitution was built has suffered neglect and decay. Millions of Americans have watched this unraveling and longed for a way to stop it. Now that way is here. Follow bestselling authors Paul B. Skousen and Cleon W. Skousen (The Naked Communist) as they guide you through the Constitution, the ways in which its core tenets are faltering, and the direct path necessary to restore them. Along the way, you’ll find review questions and memory tricks to familiarize yourself with the crucial pillars of the American republic, such as the Framers’ 28 great ideas for true liberty, the role of personal responsibility, and the basics of “People’s Law.” How to Save the Constitution is for those who know the United States is in trouble and want to help before it’s too late. Saving our Constitution is the greatest gift this generation could possibly give to the next. Let’s get started! Praise for How to Save the Constitution "It serves as an important foundation piece: a starting point providing a simple overview of the reasons, principles, importance, and ideas of a sound democratic government." —D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review "I feel this work would prove an excellent resource in current governmental and political debates in universities and classrooms, particularly for its strict attention to detail in the original historical intentions of the development of policy and law for the independent United States of America."—K.C.

In the past year the elected leaders of the government of the United States have taken that nation down a road that can only lead to disaster. The federal government of the United States has borrowed more money in the past year alone than all of the debt accumulated since the nation's found more than 200 years ago. In the process of bankrupting America, the nationally elected leaders have on many occasions literally ignored the Constitution of the United States. The American people are patient; however, their patience has reached the breaking point, and, as a result, BIG changes are just around the corner for America. The book titled "Our 2nd American Revolution: Honoring the Sacrifice of our Founders" spells out how the American people will "take back" their nation beginning on November 2nd, 2010. This book includes a "Nine Point Plan to Save America from an otherwise certain demise" and breaks down step by step what must be done if America is to survive in the future. Our 2nd American Revolution is a book about saving America. America has drifted very far away from the fundamental principles that allowed her to become the richest and fastest growing nation ever to have existed. As a result, America is on a collision course with certain disaster. The goal of the "Our 2nd American Revolution" is to sound a loud wake up call to all Americans who love thier country and cannot bear to see the great American experiment fail. America can be saved if dramatic and bold action is taken soon. However, time is of the essence and the citizens of American must act, and act very soon.
