Do you have those days where your frustration builds and you find it hard to continue in our struggle to save our Republic? In today's show, for such a time as this, I share a story about an old man and a rock and I ask you to recommit yourself -- right here, right now -- to the mission.
I created this YouTube Playlist as one of many necessary tools to stay motivated. For such a time as this, with the ups and downs of life in the form of successes and setbacks, it's important to stay motivated and continually fuel your mind with inspiration.
Please note: This Playlist changes often. When inspired by a video, I simply add it to the Playlist.

December 23, 1776 - Thomas Paine "THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
Ephesians 6:10-20 "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;" (Isaiah 5:20) Please take the time and look at these videos and SHARE this page with your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Please note; there's so much more evidence out there that we live in a backwards, illogical world that simply lacks common sense and a common decency towards our fellow man -- all occurring with a complete lack of will to solve the problems we face today.
I weep for future generations.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen...
The man-made busy-ness of the commercialized winter solstice non-denominational and irreligious holiday festivus season is once again upon us and in full swing. Has everyone lost the true reason for this Christmas season?? The answer, with all Thanks to God and Becky Kelley's nephew, is No.
Here's an excerpt to the story behind Becky Kelley's inspiration to what began as a YouTube sensation, Where's The Line To See Jesus:
"While at the mall a couple of years ago, my then four year old nephew, Spencer, saw kids lined up to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, he asked his mom, "where's the line to see Jesus"? My sister mentioned this to my dad, who immediately became inspired and jotted words down to a song in just a few minutes. After putting music to the words, and doing a quick recording at home, he received a great response from friends. He sent the song off to Nashville without much response, except for a Christian song writer who suggested adding a bridge at the end of the first chorus. My dad then asked if I wanted to record the song to see what we could do with it.".

A very special Thank You to Becky Kelley for sharing this wonderful message. May God be with you and your family this Christmas.
Question: Do you glorify God in all you do?? Do you recognize His sacrifice for you and receive that sacrifice with faith in God's promise? Excerpt from thechurchtoolsmedia on YouTube
"John 3:16 - The Story of Love" came from the movie Most (The Bridge), a beautiful Oscar-nominated movie and winner of many prestigios film festivals that tells the story of the close relationship between a bridge operator and his young son and the fateful day when both try to head off an impending rail disaster.
A steam train full of hundreds of passengers are unaware of the danger as they head towards an open drawbridge. When a desperate young woman witnesses an act of virtue beyond imagination, her life is forever changed.
This video is narrated by Reggie Dabbs through his sermon at Planetshakers Conference 2007. The message was inspirational that we decided to match it to the movie itself. Although throughout Reggie Dabbs sermon it appears that he's making reference to the video, we were absent from the conference and made our best effort to combine the sermon to the movie.
JOHN 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
Question: Do you glorify God in all you do?? Do you recognize His sacrifice for you and receive that sacrifice with faith in God's promise?
There's a great Awakening occurring in America today. Many of you reading this will know exactly what I'm talking about and you're probably one of the many driving the conversation. Not only is there a political and fiscal awakening, but many are realizing an educational, cultural and even spiritual awakening that's screaming for our attention.
On Friday, September 30th, the movie Courageous, produced by Sherwood Pictures, the film-making offshoot of Albany, Georgia’s Sherwood Church, also known for Facing the Giants (motivating movie clip) and Fireproof (movie trailer), was released.
The theme of the movie is fatherhood and the responsibilities that come with it. We definitely need more men to lead their families Courageously, seeking God's grace, praying for wisdom and guidance, and passing on the lessons of personal responsibility to their children. Brace yourself as this movie will tackle many of the challenges that come with those lessons.
Joshua 24:15 "...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
I recommend you see this movie with your buddies, spouse, church group, neighbors and your co-workers.
Here's a 5-minute documentary on the making of Courageous.
The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.
On Wednesday, May 4, 2011, historian, and to many of us across the country, "national treasure", David Barton was on the Jon Stewart show. As you'll see in the embedded clips below, David Barton visited with Stewart in an extended interview that left me on the edge of my seat. This interview encapsulates what each of us must do with our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers who have yet to awaken to the fact that we have not been taught a truthful and complete view of American History.
Lately, it seems the weight of the world is on our shoulders, the future of our Republic is in our hands and unrelenting pressure is becoming unbearable!! We're experiencing arguments, debates, name-calling, hurt feelings, rudeness, egos, power-struggles....and this is just on our side! No matter what kind of day I'm having, however, when I walk into a room filled with fellow patriots who are volunteering and putting their lives on hold with sincere dedication to our cause....I'm filled with love, appreciation, respect, and admiration. Nothing brightens my day more than being surrounded by people of all ages who understand that our country is the last best hope for man on Earth and that we must do something to save our Republic.
This battle in which we fight is not for the faint of heart.
I understand what this movement has done to families and is still doing today. I know what's happened to our careers, to paychecks and to "life as normal". If you were to ask me to describe my life two and a half years ago, you'd think I was talking about a life belonging to someone else. I oftentimes refer to 2009 as the best year of my life and the worst year of my life at the same time. But at the end of the day, when I take inventory, in spite of the struggles that still continue to this day, I wouldn't change a thing.
"God works in mysterious ways", as they say and they're not kidding!
With that said, I could not be more proud of what we've accomplished together. I could not be more thankful to God above for the relationships we've forged along the way. I used to talk about certain people in my life that could "do no harm". No matter what they did, I would always without a question forgive them and see passed any issues because they were that important to me. Well, since this movement began, I'm the lucky one because I've added to that list at least ten fold.
So why am I writing tonight? Why now?
I've noticed the way people are talking to each other. We all have, we can't ignore it. Our email inbox is filled with attitudes and negativity, and it's killing me! It's sad to see how we've been treating our fellow patriots lately.
With that said, I think it's time we take inventory. It's time to look around and take notice of who is standing with us. There are so many people out there that still have their heads in the sand and it's pretty sad and frustrating at the same time. With that in mind, when I take inventory it makes me look at those that are standing with me and I could not be more proud and appreciative.
We must cherish and nourish our relationships. We must not take them for granted. We must first seek to understand, then be understood. We must exhaust every possible effort to treat each other and especially their ideas with utmost respect.
I believe the video above is a good first step in the right direction and I hope everyone takes a moment to watch it. I've copy/pasted the text of the video here:

Happy Anniversary!! Can you believe it's been two years since Rick Santelli ranted on CNBC from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile about the latest bailout? Little did he know, on that day, he would have provided the spark that launched one of the most powerful great awakenings in American History.
"President Obama, are you listening???", asks Rick Santelli.
But as We The People have awakened, we've realized that the problems with our government are not about one man, one administration, or one political party. We've come to realize that it's the 100 years of progressive big government, big spending, big bureaucracy, big dependency, big agency, big solution, big promises and central planning that has ripped our constitution to shreds, made our founder's original intent a distant memory and all that which makes us exceptional a mere thing of the past.
For those of you on those original conference calls that are still engaged in the fight today, I salute you. Well done, indeed. For everyone involved in some fashion or another in the tea party movement, I say Thank You, God speed, and please keep up the great work.
For everyone, I ask you to join me in praying for our nation and for those on the front lines of the battle to save our Republic. I ask that you pray these two verses as often as you can. We must put on the Armor of God, we must humble ourselves and we must turn from our wicked ways and call upon God to help us secure the blessings of Liberty He has so graciously provided.
2 Chronicles 7:14 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Ephesians 6:10-20 - The Armor of God 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
The following was posted on my blog site, MyAmericanism.com, on March 15, 2009. The site has since been taken down and I believe the blog post must be preserved: 9 PRINCIPLES
1. America Is Good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is know. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson
- Honesty - Reverence - Hope - Thrift - Humility - Charity - Sincerity - Moderation - Hard Work - Courage - Personal Responsibility - Gratitude
