Appreciating The American Dream...

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher's Note:  Once again, the keyboard of Sybele Capezzutti came alive and she offers a triumphant description of how she felt when she arrived in America; what it meant to her, and, while she stills loves it here...a little sadness comes through as she has watched a lot of things change for the worse along with the rest of us.  

Thank you for granting The Patriots Press the privilege of sharing this with our readers Sybele, and thank you for taking the time to honor our nation on its birthday.

Sybele Capezzutti:  When I came to America thirty-two years ago a few things caught my attention....

The streets were clean and well paved; there was a sense of order; there weren't any beggars on the street corners; people didn't lock their doors during the day or lock their cars.

Americans could criticize anyone and anything freely; Americans could open a small business and make a decent living; cops were respected.

Each State was different with different laws that served its population; voting wasn't mandatory but Americans took it seriously.

Americans were proud, a good proud.

I was travelling by bus from St. Louis, MO to Peoria, IL listening to my Walkman (you can laugh now!) in total awe of the beautiful road, and as we crossed the Mississippi River I saw a group of bikers; there were twenty or so, they all had jackets with the American Flag on it and the leader had a big Flag flying from his gave me chills!

I cried...I was in America! The land of the Free!

I knew then I wanted to be part of it, I wanted to be free also.  It wasn't the kind of freedom that removes physical chains, it was freedom of the soul.

The visa process was a lengthy and expensive one, but to me it was so worth it! I was glad that this wonderful Country was so demanding and scrutinized its immigrants, after all, the reason it was so wonderful was because of its citizenry and the pride they carry in their hearts, the love they had for this land.

Becoming a US Citizen in those days was a privilege, one that I was very grateful for.

To all of you that were blessed with being born in this amazing Country....

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being selective about whom you are willing to accept into your family, that's called self-preservation.  Read the beginning of this post again and ask yourself why things have changed so much in thirty years.

As we continue celebrating America's 240th Birthday let's remember that this Nation was made by immigrants who embraced it, loved it, fought for it, and died for it....and not by immigrants who refused to assimilate.

I wish all of you could feel what I felt that day when I crossed the Mississippi River....

"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people" ~ Ronald Reagan.

Happy Birthday America! And thank you for having me.

Obama’s Refugee Resettlement Program

Written by Laura Rambeau Lee on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher's note: In this very brief, to the point article, Laura Rambeau Lee lays out this doomed to failure program.

Laura Rambeau Lee:  The Obama Administration’s refugee resettlement program completely and dangerously ignores its duty first and foremost to protect American citizens.  Just this week CIA Director John Brennan advised us that ISIS/ISIL has plans to infiltrate and insert radical Islamic jihadists in a global terrorism campaign via these refugee routes. 

The administration is bringing in tens of thousands of refugees despite massive opposition by the American people through unconstitutional presidential executive orders.  In my state of Florida Governor Rick Scott appealed to the White House to provide information on the refugees being settled in our state.  They told him no, that it would violate the privacy rights of the refugees.  The states absolutely have the right and authority to refuse refugees unless and until we know who they are, where they come from, and their personal background and history. 

In this last year of Obama’s second term as president we are seeing the fundamental transformation of America he promised as a candidate in 2008.  This is civilization jihad combined with civilization suicide.  This is giving aid and comfort to our enemies within the United States, the very definition of treason.

XX or XY, We Are What We Are

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher’s note:  I have many friends and acquaintances on the various social media.  One of those friends, Sybele Capezzutti, has an amazing ability to size up some of the many issues that are continually thrust upon our culture, and reduce them down to the simplest of terms.  She has done it again with this very brief synopsis on the subject of “gender fluidity.” 

Sybele Capezzutti:  Let it be known that the party that rejects religion because it is not based on science embraces gender identity as a feeling while rejecting it as the simple science of XX and XY.

I have absolutely no problem with how you identify yourself (I love my friends for who they are), but when the government decides to remove science from the school books and ignore it in order to teach gender identity as a feeling, they are going against science and robbing our children from proper education. It is not their job to impose social acceptance by ignoring science.

And by the way...gender is not fluid either! Even my gay friends have a problem with people that swing in every direction; they are confused, not fluid.

You can change whatever you want on the outside and your chromosomes will still be XX or XY, any other combination is a mutation and rare.

How you identify will never make it possible for a XX to produce sperm and a XY to produce eggs and carry a baby.

I can identify as a cat and that will not change my DNA so I can become a cat, not that hard to understand! 

I'm all for social acceptance, but let's not mess with our children's education and rob them from facts in order to promote a political agenda.

All the government is doing is creating a generation that is even less informed and more confused than the last...thus much easier to control and manipulate. WAKE UP!

North Carolina, ground zero for "transgender" revolution...?

Written by Tim Dunkin on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher’s Note:  There is a lot of talk these days about “transgender” rights; specifically where such “rights” are stacked up against common sense logic and the rights of the vast majority of “non-transgendered” persons to use gender specific facilities without feeling the need to protect themselves or their children from potentially harmful exposures.

In the following, very carefully crafted article, Tim Dunkin breaks down the prevailing arguments and makes a very salient case of how such measures are put into place against the over-whelming wishes of any constituency.  Mostly due to financial pressure from the federal government.

Since I look at this issue with the same raised eyebrow that I view the targeted attacks by “big gay” on Christian businesses for refusing to provide services for occasions that go against their beliefs, I have asked Mr. Dunkin to be a guest on my regular weekly radio show “A Word To The Wise” this Monday 4/11/16 at 8:00 PM, EST.  You can listen to that show by clicking here and then simply click on the triangle “play” button just below the Blog Talk Radio Icon near the top left.  

Not only will he and I discuss this issue and field calls from the listening audience on that show, I will also be discussing a related issue on the Sunday show that I am currently guest hosting called “Damon Rosen’s Insane Sunday.”  That show, which you can tune into by clicking here and following the same instructions as above, will highlight one of the major evidences of targeting against Christians and their businesses as I discuss a Muslim scholar calling for the death of all gays and lesbians in this video. 

This is hardly the first time I have heard such commentary from a Muslim, but what I find even more appalling than what he actually says is the hypocritical silence of “big gay” and other anti-Christian groups who very often side with Muslims in a show of some sort of solidarity.  

Newsflash to “big gay” and the others, many of us on the Christian right have been warning you about this for years.

My challenge to you is instead of attacking Christians and their businesses to advance your agendas, why not tackle this direct threat…?!  Simply put, because you know that no Christian is going to kill you for what you do, whereas a Muslim very well might.

Tim Dunkin:  Recently, the state of North Carolina has found itself squarely in the cross hairs of the radical gay lobby and its social justice warrior (SJW) allies in business.  The reason is a new law, passed by wide margins in both houses of the legislature and signed by Governor McCrory, which prevents local governments from passing ordinances allowing, among other things, so-called “transgendered” individuals to use bathrooms that do not conform to their actual, biological gender (i.e. would require men to use men's restrooms, and women to use women's facilities, regardless of what they “identify” as).  This was in response to the city of Charlotte, which ignored the wishes of its own people and passed a “non-discrimination” ordinance that would have allowed men who “identify” as women to intrude into the personal privacy of women by using their restrooms.  

Naturally, the radical Left is up in arms about this.  They disingenuously paint the original Charlotte ordinance as nothing more than “equal rights” (since when does the US Constitution, or any constitution for that matter, address bathroom use?) and part of the “new gay civil rights” push. Opponents of the ordinance warned that it would merely pave the way for perverts to legally be able to victimize women and girls.  While the radical gay lobby derides that claim, we should note that the individual who was largely responsible for seeing the Charlotte ordinance pass – a gay man named Chad Sevearance-Turner – is a convicted sex offender who was arrested in 1998 for “committing or attempting to commit a lewd act upon a child under the age of 16.”  The original ordinance's proponents vigorously assert that it would never have resulted in weird, creepy men abusing the system to indecently expose themselves to women (or worse).  They should try telling that to this guy in Seattle, or this other guy in Toronto, both of whom did exactly that.

Journey to Jesus, a former Muslim woman speaks...

Written by Shoa Zilch on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher's note:  This is a true story written by a former Muslim woman in her own words about her long journey to find the truth and peace that can only be found in Jesus.  Like so many other former Muslims, her story is spell binding.  I came across her story via my friend Dr. Sharon Schuetz and am republishing this with Dr. Sharon's kind permission.  It is a story that must be told.

Dr. Sharon Schuetz: Shoa Zilch is a former Muslim woman who was raised in a Muslim home and given to her former husband through an arranged marriage. She suffered years of abuse through the religion of peace, Islam, and its adherants in the Muslim community. While she is free of the chains of Islam, she still has to endure abuse from her former husband through her relationship with her six children, some who live with her, and some who have chosen their father’s life, Islam.


Shoa Zilch:  My name is Shoa Zilch, and I was born in Calcutta India to strict Muslim parents. We moved to Venezuela when I was just a baby, where I grew up. I graduated from high school, and then moved to the United States with a scholarship to rice University.

My parents, however, had other plans. They had arranged for me to marry immediately. My husband was a 30-year-old fundamentalist Shiite Muslim from Pakistan. The day after we were married he bought me a black burka. It is a complete head to toe covering that Muslim women wear.

He forbade me to wear any other color in public. There were many other rules I had to get accustomed to as well. I was not allowed to shake hands with any men, look at them in the eyes, or make any eye contact. I wasn’t allowed to have any women friends either. Two days after we were married my husband’s brother introduced us to his boss and I, being polite, shook hands with him. My husband got furious in front of everyone and told me that I was unclean and made me wash my hands immediately. For the next 17 years....."
