Was Sarah Palin right or wrong about Paul Revere?

Statue of Paul Revere in Boston’s North End


If you have read this website for long, you know that I am from the Boston area and love to go back there each year to re-explore my Christian American heritage. My first church used to meet a block away from the Old North Church and the Paul Revere Statue. In fact, our next video will be called: Puritan Storm Rising! It will be a primer on how Reformed Theology shaped the politics and culture of our civilization.

I was surprised to hear how much the liberal press mocked Sarah Palin’s comment on Paul Revere warning the British (instead of warning Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them). Her remark may have been based in part on the fact that when he was captured, Revere warned the Redcoats that hundreds of Patriots would be showing up at any minute.

Remember the Minutemen?

She may have garbled that idea as she spoke off the cuff, but how many people know that? The only people who know things like that these days are those who study America’s Christian Heritage and professional historians.

She also related the “ride” to the Second Amendment, which sounded kind of clumsy because she threw in a few mixed metaphors. Paul Revere didn’t literally ring any bells or fire any shots. But in fact, his job as a bell ringer at Christ Church (the Old North Church) gave him access to the bell tower from where he hung two lanterns warning that the British were coming by sea. She knew Paul Revere was a “bell ringer.”

Did you know that?

Another important principle is there. The British were coming to arrest Adams and Hancock and to seize ammunition and gun powder. This is what sparked the war. Revere didn’t ride to warn the colonists that a war was coming. He was trying to warn the colonists about impending gun control.

It’s interesting that Sarah turned it around to be a declaration to the British that they were not going to do that. She was not literally accurate, but it’s not hard to see she was turning it around for a purpose.

And they mock her for doing that!

I thought it was a clever turn. It has everyone talking about Paul Revere and what his ride was really all about. Some in the lamestream media have even stupidly mentioned we didn’t have the Second Amendment yet. I read that again today in the Christian Science Monitor. Of course the Constitution wasn’t written yet, but Americans had the right to bear arms under English Bill of Rights of 1688.

Americans had the right to bear arms. The British tried to take this right away. And that is one reason why our War for Independence was fought. So kudos to Sarah for making Paul Revere’s Ride into a Second Amendment issue.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Running time: 85 minutes

Packaged in a double DVD case with the updated The Abortion Matrix DVD.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Running Time: 28 minutes
