Passionate, patriotic speakers at the 2014 Western Conservative Summit used these terms to describe “America at it’s best,” the theme of the 3-day weekend that called for unity, generational harmony, moral courage, and the preservation of America’s founding principles of faith, family, and freedom.

Rousing finale from Colonel Allen West: America at its best

By |July 20th, 2014|

Former Florida Congressman and Colonel Allen West summed up the Western Conservative Summit’s 2014 theme–America at its Best–perfectly late Sunday morning.

Not so fast on 'judge not'

By |December 28th, 2013|

(Centennial Fellow) “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” The tolerance movement in our secular culture screams this biblical passage (Matt: 7:1) to silence Christians from expressing their biblical judgment in opposition to the moral relativism of the American culture.
