“The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance, which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.” 

John Curran (1750-1817), Irish lawyer and statesman.  From a speech given in Dublin, Ireland on July 10, 1790.  (Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations, John Bartlett, Ed., Brown & Co., 1968, p. 454).

It has long been postulated that it was Thomas Jefferson who first said, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty”. However, it’s now considered very doubtful that Jefferson ever uttered those famous words. Others of our Founders may have expressed similar thoughts during their conflict with Great Britain, but it was Irishman John Curran who iscredited with the original coining of that sentiment. Without any doubt, constant vigilance has always been a key element in the eons-long battle of mankind to attain or retain some degree of freedom and limited self-government, two indispensable elements in the forging of a life worth living that have been historically denied far too often to most of mankind by conniving and ruthless parts of the human “herd”.

The Duke John Wayne Signature
The "Duke" - John Wayne (1907-1979). A great actor - an even greater patriot.

Life really is much harder if you’re stupid, especially if you’re deliberately stupid.  Words to that effect were uttered by the hard-nosed (but soft hearted) Sergeant Stryker in the great old 1949 film, “Sands of Iwo Jima”, and portrayed so well by John Wayne (1907-1979), one of the most unique actors that American film has ever produced and who, despite his failures and shortcomings  was one of the most sincere patriots our country has ever produced.  An iconoclast of leftist/progressive causes, Wayne was a strong supporter (in his later life) of traditional Americanism and the constitutional form of government given to Americans by our Founders.  As he matured, he became a political conservative, much to the chagrin of the leftist vermin and brain damaged“ moonbats” who increasingly dominated Hollywood during most of his career.

Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

Who can forget the stirring words of one of Rudyard Kipling’s most famous poems, entitled “Lest We Forget”?

“God of our fathers, known of old, Lord of our far-flung battle line—
Beneath whose awful (awesome) hand we hold Dominion over palm and pine—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget—lest we forget!

The tumult and the shouting dies; The captains and the kings depart—
Still stands Thine ancient Sacrifice, An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget—lest we forget!

The Dissolution Of The Old United States Of America

The Dissolution ofThe Old United States of America
Daniel 5:26-28: "God has numbered the day of your reign and brought it to an end, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians." The reality of God's righteous judgments were true in 586 BC, are true in 21st-century America, and will be true in any possible future.

(A continuation of a lecture by a fictional “history professor” to a class of young adults, sometime in the 32nd Century).


“In our last class we discussed the beginnings of the dissolution of the country once known as ‘The United States of America’, starting with its Civil War that began, as far as we can determine, around the year 2030 A.D., a war that was fomented by what I referred to as ‘militia groups’ and ‘frustrated military commanders’ who considered themselves loyal to the We The People” constitution that had governed that nation for at least a quarter of a millennia, as near as can be determined from the scant historical records that survived the Nationality Wars and the Dark Time, events that we believe ended the Christian civilization of that time, between 500 to 600 years ago.

The Crisis Lamb
"The American Crisis," published in December of 1776 by Thomas Paine, was The Clarion call that saved the American Revolution. This was No. 1 of thirteen inspirational pamphlets that Paine wrote and published between 1776 and 1783.

“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all His commands I will give  you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of Earth.  All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”

Deuteronomy 28:1-2  NIV  (Deuteronomy was George Washington’s favorite Book of the Bible).

These are the times that try men’s soulsThe summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands 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.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated….

A modern Liberal is someone who doesnt care
A modern liberal is a person open to "new behavior" and willing to discard YOUR traditional values.

In the Year of our Lord, 2023, the citizens of our troubled American nation find themselves virtually breaking apart over “politics”; more specifically split down the middle between those who call themselves “conservatives” or “Americanists”, who honor and respect the “old ways” that were codified by our Founders in our Constitution and transmitted long before our Constitution existed to all of mankind through the centuries by God’s Eternal Word (our Bible), and those who call themselves “modernliberals”, who essentially reject almosteverything that conservatives believe in and honor.  They love to assure us that they respect that heritage as much as all the rest of us do, but they really don’t! They are LIARS! The “heritage” that modern liberals truly respect is the chaos, repression, death and destruction (of property and Christian sanity) fomented by the FRENCH Revolution of 1789!  Those jaundiced Jacobins are the same NOW as they were during the “Reign of Terror” in revolutionary France.  The only difference is that now they call themselves “Democrats”!

Original Stories by W.H. Lamb

Abraham Lincoln Quote on losing our freedoms
Was President Lincoln correct in his prediction? What do you think?


It’s been several years since I attempted to portray via articles the lives of people who won’t be born for another 400 or so years. A much shorter version of this series appeared in the old newsprint version of The Times Examiner four or five years ago.  It consists of 21 parts, including this first part, all of which I’ll insert from time to time within the context of my usual Times Examiner articles, but frequently enough for  you to remember the gist of the story. To tell the truth, I’m bothered by the impulses I’ve entertained for several years to tell this story again, because it concerns me that many readers will conclude that I’m  resigned to the inevitability of the future I’m going to unveil to you, having spent much of my adult life, and many of my friends and fellow conservatives/Americanists I’ve had the privilege of knowing over all that time have done likewise, battling the forces of Marxism/collectivism/progressivism/socialism, all systems of repressive government that are inimical to our American concepts of freedom under law and are corrosive to the spirit of human liberty.

Another Look At The Curse Of Abandonment Theology
If those who preach and practice "Abandonment Theology" are correct, then "resistance to tyranny" is not "obedience to God!" What do you think?

In a previous article, we discussed some of the obvious reasons why our beloved America is slowly disintegrating into purposely induced chaos and tribalism, and I placed the blame for this descent into possible national oblivion squarely on the heads of the leaders of “people of faith”—i.e. Christian pastors/priests/ministers, and Jewish rabbis, and the congregations they claim to lead (including Christians who are part of the “home church” movement).  I’ve never suggested, nor will I, that people of faith are retreating from the battle against evil and tyranny because they don’t love America, despite all its faults and its sometimes-tarnished heritage of freedom.  Of course they—we all—say we do. But “talk is cheap”, we all know.  Unless Christian Patriots and patriots in general study  God’s Word, and read and study publications like The Times Examiner, The New American, WorldNetDaily, Breitbart News, Epoch Times News & TV, and many other pro-American and pro-Christian journals, blogs, web sites and podcasts of truth and abandonthe devious and lying “main stream media”--including ALL of the “alphabet” TV channels, most cable news channels, virtually all print newspapers and well-known “popular” magazines, and especially the anti-American, anti-free speech, culture destroying “socialmedia” like Facebook (Meta), UTube, WhatsApp, Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter (now called “X”), Thread, TikTok, etc.

Opposition to Tyrants Is Obedience to God
So said Thomas Jefferson and our early patriot founders. So say I. What do you say?

The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: It connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” 

So said the 6th President of the U.S., John Quincy Adams, on July 4, 1821.  I’ve read that quote often in the past, and I’ve always believed it to be both insightful and truthful.  I’ve long assumed that  most Americans of the “experienced” variety (i.e. those who are as ‘old as rocks’, like me) always endorsed the accuracy of Adams’ statement.  I’m not quite as confidant that our younger fellow citizens subscribe to that sentiment, or have even heard of President John Quincy Adams, and lately  I’m increasingly concerned that Americans of all ages no longer value the wisdom of our “elders” and our Founders.  Let me share some of my concerns with you.

Observations by Hayley Lamb

(Translated From “Dog” by W. H. Lamb)

The Dog 6599
Hayley Lamb - Boss of the "Pack"

Hello again to everyone.  My name is Hayley Lamb, and you can see my picture at the top of this article, where I’m sitting in front of MY house.   This is my second article for this newspaper that I’ve written.  My Uncle Boomer used to write a lot for The Times Examiner before he decided to cross over the “Rainbow Bridge” back in 2015.  He was into unimportant stuff like politics, but he also wrote about really relevant and important things like chasing cats and squirrels, riding in his Grampa’s car, keeping big birds out of our yard, and making sure that the mailman didn’t come onto our property.  He even ran for the office of “Dog-In-Chief” way back in the dark time of 2012, before I was born (but he lost).  He did belong to The National Anti-Cat Society, just like I do.  He was a real cat hater/cat chaser, so I know from whom I got my “anti-cat” propensities.

The time is now upon Americans to decide whether we will live as free people in a constitutional republic, or endure as slaves and serve to a Marxist, collectivist tryanny! May you choose wisely!

Note:  A version of this article, under a different title, was published in The Times Examiner on April 13, 2020.  Our “national situation” is even more precarious now than it was then.  Those who deny that are either grossly uninformed, deliberately blind, or are in the camp of the collectivists. 

I’d venture a guess that most readers of this beacon of truth called The Times Examinerknow at least some of the words to James Lowell’s (1819-1891) great 1844 poem—a 90-line masterpiece titled, The Present Crisis”.  It was first published in 1845 by The Boston Currier, written  as a protest against the impending war with Mexico and as a condemnation of the then existing evil institution of slavery, which had been incorporated into the new Republic of Texas in 1836.  In 1896, Garrett Horder (1841-1922), an English hymn writer, took Lowell’s epic poem and condensed it into the shorter but more familiar hymn—“Once To Every Man and Nation”-- that most Christians have always known.  Both versions contain inspiring, beautiful, yet quite troubling ideas  which have “pin pricked” my thoughts for decades.  To a certain extent, Lowell’s words still stand as a “two edged sword” ready to condemn those of us alive today with their thrust into our complacency, as lines #26 through #30 eloquently proclaim:

Harlech Castle in Walesjpg
Harlech Castle in Wales. Built by English King Edward 1st during his invasion of Wales, between 1282 and 1289.

Men of Harlech in the hollow, Do ye hear the rushing billow,
Wave on wave that surging follow battle’s distant sound?

‘Tis the tramp of Saxon foemen, Saxon spearmen, Saxon bowmen,
Be they knights or hinds or yeomen, they shall bite the ground!

Loose the folds asunder, flag we conquer under!
The placid sky now bright on high, shall launch its bolts in thunder!

Onward! ‘Tis the country needs us, he is bravest, he who leads us,
Honor’s self now proudly heads us,  freedom, God, and right!” 

(Words by Mark Rutherford, from the film, Devil’s Brigade).

The Flying Tigers 1

“In the summer of 1941, months before America was drawn into WW11…, a small group of American military pilots was secretly being recruited to augment China’s Air Force.  At the head of this effort was a crusty, retired WW1 Army Air Corps fighter pilot (the partially deaf Claire Chennault) who had been hired by China to strengthen the Chinese Air Force.  Because America was not at war with Japan, great care was taken to avoid bringing into question this nation’s neutrality.  As a result, these volunteer pilots were required to resign their commissions with the U.S. military, travel to China as civilians and enlist in the Chinese Air Force.

We Are Not Descending From Fearful Men
Let us not be driven by fear into an age of unreason or a time of tyranny! As Americans we are not descended from fearful men and women, but from those who promote causes that were unpopular and dangerous!

“Do the thing you fear, and the death of fear becomes certain.” - Paraphrased from Ralph Waldo Emerson

What does it mean to be “fearful”?  What does it mean to be courageous?  Let’s start with ‘fearful’  The dictionary defines it as: feeling afraid, showing fear or anxiety, apprehension, suggesting a state of mind, implying a premonition of evil or danger.

The dictionary defines courageous as:  not deterred by danger or pain; being brave; facing negative situations resolutely, despite fear.

Lamb Soceity Drifting
"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." Orwell was quite prescient, wasn't he? He "foresaw" 21st Century America!

This is the direction the world is going in at the present time.  In our world there will be no emotions, except fear, rage, triumph, and self abasement.  The sex instinct will be eradicated….  There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the party.  But always there will be the intoxication of power.  Always at every moment there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless.

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.  The moral to be drawn from this dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one.  DON’T LET IT HAPPEN!  It depends on YOU.”

Eric Blair (1903-1950).  Better known by his “pen name” of GEORGE ORWELL.
