25,000 people gave their lives in the American Revolution to give birth to this freedom.
The Battle of Yorktown
Over four hundred and five thousand Americans gave their lives in World War 2; one of the reasons they fought was to protect Freedom of Religion.
Our principles make us great; but only when we strive to practice them
Everyone who seeks freedom has place in the United States
Hear our prayer
We have sinned before Thee
Have compassion upon us and upon our children
Help us bring an end to pestilence, war, and famine
Cause all hate and oppression to vanish from the earth
Inscribe us for blessing in the Book Of Life
Let the new year be a good year for us

I finally had a long hard look at Russia’s 2016 Facebook ads.
The Vladster had a Facebook Page for everyone.
Were you a
Blacktivist? Vlad was there with a false story has always hated you:
to convince you your government
A Russian Facebook Ad that falsely claims the Black Panthers were founded to fight the KKK
Actually, the Black Panther’s formed as an armed citizens’ patrol to monitor the behavior of officers of the Oakland Police Department and challenge police brutality in Oakland, California. The Justice Department was formed to fight the KKK.
LGBTQ? Vlad wants you to think of Bernie Sanders as a gay rights
superhero (especially ‘Berniacs’ who didn’t know Clinton and Sanders held
the same positions on Gay Rights):
Vlad says color me Bernie!
Or maybe you’re concerned about
Police Brutality and the killings of
A Russian Facebook Page against police brutality
Perhaps you wondered if
Black Lives Matter was a problem:
Did you wonder if ‘Black Lives Matter’ was the problem?
Or maybe you were a ‘Woke Black’ willing to think
the ‘Democrat welfare
state’ keeps Black People down:
A Russian Facebook Page for ‘Woke Blacks’
If you were a white supremacist who kept his racist shit to himself
was there to set you free, with this:
Or maybe you were a White Racist who kept it to himself.

If you see one or more of the following 15 points in a news story, or hear them used by a public figure be suspicious:
A black and white division of the world into “ ours” and the “alien” other;
Epithets that imply more than they describe;
Constant assertions that those supporting Putin or Trump are more numerous and united. (The results of manipulated and flawed polls are often used to support such assertions);
Empty declarations that mean nothing but seem to promise or
Playing games with cause and effect, often reversing their true order;
Making false accusations but not providing proof;
A vicious circle or tautology where the second part of an
assertion is simply a repetition of the first;
Confusing the part with the whole by focusing on only one part
of something such as liberals within the opposition;
Creating false dilemmas that don’t exist;
Careful preparation of headlines which are the only thing
most people pay attention to;
Citations to experts, often false and even more often out of context;
Claiming all media reports when only one media outlet does;
Using weasel words like “so-called” or “it would appear” to give an appearance of objectivity;
Outright falsification; and
Conspiracy theories and suggestion of hidden motives.
