  • The Second Battle of the Alamo


    A second Texas Revolution is currently brewing in the Lone Star State. This all comes as a result of a seemingly laudable plan promoted to and passed by the state’s legislature some four years ago.

    The plan involved the rebuilding and improvement of the state’s most iconic shrine—the Alamo. The plan as promoted and approved would have rebuilt certain historic structures present at the time of the 1836 battle, as well as give visitors there a better and more complete understanding of the physical environment existing at the time of the conflict.

    Consequent to the plan’s passage, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush, whose office is now in charge of running the Alamo, brought in a number of out-of-state planners to design the project. What they came up with was something very different from what its backers originally envisioned.

    Much to their dismay, the originators of this effort were astounded to learn that the new focus of the Alamo would no longer be the 1836 battle for which it is world famous. In the words of Bush’s Master Planner George Skarmeas, “We cannot single out one moment in time.” Instead the Alamo would be transformed into a multi-cultural hodgepodge of world history. In fact, its very name would be changed.

    The site would no longer be referred to as the Alamo—instead, it would be known as the San Antonio de Valero mission. And this does not comprise the full extent of the plan’s disturbing features. Instead of rebuilding the mission’s outer-perimeter defensive walls using the original limestone as has been done at the other four San Antonio missions, the Alamo’s walls would be constructed of modern-day see-through plexiglass.

    Other bizarre aspects by the designers are also present, including a tree-lined body of flowing water coursing through the middle of the site’s Main Plaza complete with tables, chairs, and canopies under which tourists may sip their drinks in comfort. In short, the effect will be more reminiscent of a modern-day tourist theme park than that of a hallowed and sacred battleground. Needless to say, upon learning these facts Texans across the state have met this plan with vociferous opposition.

    There are now statewide efforts ongoing to ensure that it is never implemented; these Texans are outraged and adamant that a plan conforming to the original intent of the legislature when proposed and passed be enacted. It is safe to assume that this fight will be loud and ugly.

    It is also highly likely that when it is over, George P. Bush’s once-promising political career in the state will be finished.


    This video that formerly displayed the REIMAGINE THE ALAMO MASTER PLAN oddly has been yanked off of YouTube. Wonder why?

    View this video in order to see the dramatic contrast between the two plans.

    The Alamo is not art, nor is it a theme park.


  • Patriot Day – Remembering 9/11

    On this day we remember the tragic 16th anniversary of 9-11, the deadliest terrorist act in world history.

    Per 2015 Census Bureau estimates, about 61.2 million Americans were born in or since 2001. When you add in people who were five or younger, it’s estimated that a quarter of the country do not remember or were not born on Sept 11th, 2001.

    With this in mind, we must never forget the nearly 3000 people who lost their life’s on this horrific and tragic day.

    It has been fifteen (16) years since September 11, 2001. It is a day seared in our hearts and minds.

    Today, we are far from where we thought we would be 16 years after the jihadi attacks of 9/11. America lost two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we lost thousands of American lives since 9/11. Many have allowed themselves to be lied to about the true nature of the threat without any evidence they care about their ignorance.

    Our leaders in both political parties have betrayed us and brought the Republic to a gravely dangerous point in our history. Some say we are on the brink of destruction.

    This weekend is meant to remember the dead of September 11, 2001, but it is also a time for Americans to dedicate themselves to defending freedom without apology. It is a time to recall our duties as citizen soldiers, stand in the gap and refuse to surrender one more inch to tyranny and evil.

    The cry once again is “Freedom.”

    Freedom to speak your mind without concern for whom might be offended.

    Freedom to declare the truth about America’s founding as a nation created by God’s divine providence.

    Freedom to declare our rights come from God, and no man nor any government nor any tyrannical movement can take them from us.

    But Freedom must be fought for. We are at war whether you like it or not, and this fight requires mature adults who understand what is at stake to step up and engage wherever needed.

    And our time is short.

    May they all continue to rest in peace.

  • America’s Second Civil War


    “They had found a leader, Robert E. Lee — and what a leader! … No military leader since Napoleon has aroused such enthusiastic devotion among troops as did Lee when he reviewed them on his horse Traveller.”

    So wrote Samuel Eliot Morison in his magisterial The Oxford History of the American People in 1965.

    First in his class at West Point, hero of the Mexican War, Lee was the man to whom President Lincoln turned to lead his army. But when Virginia seceded, Lee would not lift up his sword against his own people, and chose to defend his home state rather than wage war upon her.

    This veneration of Lee, wrote Richard Weaver, “appears in the saying attributed to a Confederate soldier, ‘The rest of us may have … descended from monkeys, but it took a God to make Marse Robert.'”

    Growing up after World War II, this was accepted history.

    Yet, on the militant left today, the name Lee evokes raw hatred and howls of “racist and traitor.” A clamor has arisen to have all statues of him and all Confederate soldiers and statesmen pulled down from their pedestals and put in museums or tossed onto trash piles.

  • Memorial Day 2017

    Memorial Day As Memorial Day weekend approaches, we remember the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

    Memorial Day has become less of an occasion of remembrance as many people hold picnics, sports events and family gatherings on this weekend, and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season for cultural events.

    The United States of America was created by those seeking a better life. They believed in ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness’ as ‘unalienable rights’ which are given to all human beings by their Creator, and for which governments are created to protect. And many since have given their lives to protect that. So enjoy your time with your family and friends, enjoy the long weekend, but never forget.

  • Happy Thanksgiving

    thanksgivingAmerican Freedom Defenders would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day is the day we give thanks for the wonderful freedoms we enjoy and the bounty we have been given by the richness of this land. Let us not forget that for others to continue to enjoy this richness and bounty we must strive to work diligently to see that it endures for our children and grandchildren.

    Below is attached a short Thanksgiving story. Some of you are probably very familiar with the story and have seen it written in various forms but it always bears repeating. It is often amazing what one can learn from history.


    On August 1, 1620, a ship called the “Mayflower” left England with 102 passengers bound for the New World. The manifest included two groups. The Separatists, led by William Bradford, had fled their homeland and the oppressive Church of England under King James I. The Strangers sought the New World for other reasons. Together they formed the Pilgrims.

  • Will you give this to my Daddy?

    johnny-cashAlthough this was covered by Snopes in 2006 and never authenticated as ever happening, does it really matter?

    Last week I was in Atlanta , Georgia attending a conference. While I was in the airport returning home, I heard several people behind me beginning to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen.

    Moving through the terminal was a group of soldiers in their camos. As they began heading to their gate, everyone (well almost everyone) was abruptly to their feet with their hands waving and cheering.

    When I saw the soldiers, probably 30-40 of them, being applauded and cheered for, it hit me. I’m not alone. I’m not the only red-blooded American who still loves this country and supports our troops and their families.

    Of course, I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line everyday for us so we can go to school, work and home without fear or reprisal.

    Just when I thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our service men and women, a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old, ran up to one of the male soldiers. He kneeled down and said ‘hi.’
