- 1. In the Hands of Providence - Col. Joshua Chamberlain
by Karen Horne
As we commemorate the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, it seems appropriate to reflect on the leadership and courage of Joshua Chamberlain without whom the South may have very well won the battle of Gettysburg and consequently the war.
On July 2, 1863 Colonel Chamberlain with his 20th Maine Regiment was positioned at the end of the Union line. He was informed that a “desperate attack” was expected to commence on that position at any moment and was told to: “Hold that ground at all hazards.” As the battle wore on his regiment ran out of ammunition. Remembering those words, “hold that ground at all hazards,” Chamberlain had his men fix their bayonets and charge the enemy stopping their assault on that position and denying them the opportunity to place themselves behind the Union line and its supplies and ammunition.
He continued to serve well during the Civil War. Wounded several times during the war, the most severe was at Petersburg, Virginia, where it was thought he would not survive. He had been leading an attack when wounded. Fearing that his men would fall back if they saw him fall, he stuck his saber in the ground to hold himself upright.
After a long recovery period he returned to the Army of the Potomac and was chosen by General Grant to accept the arms and colors of Lee’s defeated army at Appomattox. When the Confederate soldiers marched by, Chamberlain had his men salute them as a show of respect.
After the war he returned to teaching at Bowdoin College for a brief time and then went on to serve as Governor of Maine for four terms.

If you are a Republican who believes that Sheriff Arpaio should be voted out of office, then you should read this book before you cast your vote. If Arpaio loses the next election as the result of the "show trials" that have been waged down at the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors meetings by leftist radical publicity hog Randy Parraz, you will have witnessed Soviet style justice prevailing in what used to be the United States of America. And you will have been suckered by a “mainstream” media that reports every one of Parraz's indignant outrages, and those of his leftist cult followers.Click here to read more
- 3. "Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto"
“We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word many mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name - liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatible names - liberty and tyranny.” Abraham LincolnClick here to read more
- 4. The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate
Consider this: What if Obama’s birth certificate was the least of one’s worries when it comes to the credibility, capability, and agenda of Barack Obama? The birth certificate issue pales in comparison to well documented facts about Barack Obama that are just as serious. David Freddoso wrote his meticulously documented book because of the unwillingness of the media to examine Obama’s record prior to the 2008 election. Freddoso's goal was to expose the difference between Obama’s rhetoric and the reality in which he lives, and so Freddoso carefully scrutinized Obama’s record paying close attention to the details.Click here to read more

Were you paying attention in 2010? While the TEA Party-inspired conservative wave took out Democrats in state after state, Colorado retained its Democrat Senator Michael Bennett (D) over TEA Party-Conservative favorite Ken Buck. Did you wonder why “down-in-the-polls” Harry Reid managed to pull out and get re-elected in Nevada?Click here to read more
- 6. "The Battle: How the Fight Between Free Enterprise and Big Government will Shape America’s Future," by Arthur G Brooks
This new book should be read right now by constitutional conservatives. The author is Arthur G Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute.
The reason I strongly recommend this 128-page book is because it provides the tools that conservatives and constitutionalists need to push back against the Progressives and their domination of the debate through the media and our educational system. They have successfully marginalized conservative Republicans as “rich,” “heartless,” and “unfair.” They have been successful in perpetuating the lie that we “care more about money and special interests than we care about people.”Click here to read more
