Americans who care about their country, their military, their families, and their very lives also usually care about the truth. The unanswered questions about what really went down on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya will not go away until the absolute truth comes out.
South Carolina’s savvy, stern yet steady Congressman Trey Gowdy says in his still highly relevant, short yet powerful “slap down” address to the media which took place in October of 2013,
“In conclusion Congress is supposed to provide oversight. The voters are supposed to provide oversight. And you are supposed to provide oversight. That’s why you have special liberties and that’s why you have special protections. I am not surprised that the President of the United States called this a “phony scandal.” I’m not surprised that Secretary Clinton said, “What difference [at this point] does it make?!” I’m not even surprised that Jay Carney said that, ‘Benghazi happened a long time ago.” I’m just surprised at how many people bought it!” ~Trey Gowdy
Additional questions that Congressman Gowdy asked, “Why was ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi? Why were the Americans the last flag flying in Benghazi, after the British had left and the Red Cross had been bombed? Why were requests for additional security denied? Why were no assets deployed during the siege? Do you know whether the president called any of our allies to request help? Why was Susan Rice picked to go on the Sunday talk shows and present the video story? Do you know the origin of the “mythology” that the attack was spawned by a video?”
We here at PBN will continue to do our part along with the rest of the media, however many of us are left that still believe in true investigative journalism, until the truth is told. Hurting family members of deceased and injured military and contracted civilian servants are authentic heroes. They all deserve answers and so do Americans. America is and we pray and hope we will always be “The Home of the Free and The Home of the Brave!” ~PBN

The Washington political class is well aware of what we all know to be certain: that ObamaCare is an unmitigated disaster.
The Democrat Members of Congress and staffers who wrote the 1,600 page monstrosity knew it would increase premiums and restrict individual choice. But the last thing President Obama wanted was to have the very Democrat congressmen and senators who passed ObamaCare to revolt on his signature legislation.
Stand with me and sign the petition to overturn this unlawful executive overreach. read more
UPDATE: Right from Duck Dynasty
Submitted by swalker on December 19, 2013 – 7:13pm
We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.
UPDATE: One of the journalists who worked on this project, @Heaven1010Bound was suspended by twitter for reporting the truth. In addition 30+ great comments from our twitter friends were removed from this tweet. This is the kind of censorship that turns a country upside-down.
Before this all started Phil Robertson the Duck Dynasty Dad created a stir with this quote.
You have a God given right to live! And of all places inside your mother. What in the world happend to us? –Phil Robertson
Now Phil Robertson is suspended from his own reality TV show on A&E (Arts & Entertainment Contact info) By now most of the MSM is playing “catch up” with all the social media abuzz with hashtags like #BoycottA&E #IStandWithphil #WeStandWithPhil #PhilRobertson #DuckDynasty and I am sure more by now.
There are petitions sprouting up on Whitehouse.gov as well as phone, email and boycott blitzes. True Americans with Apple pie conservatism are raring to go and do something productive to reinforce our foundational precepts upon which this Republic was built. If it takes showing a tidal wave of support for free speech to change societal norms in cable broadcasting so be it. We The People are up for the challenge. Don’t push us. We The People are ready to PushbackNow hence the name of our site. There appears a general consensus among the majority of Americans that the cable show, Duck Dynasty, reflects true American values as they used to be and as they ought to be now in this space and time of our Western Civilization. Love for God, family and country in that exact order. read more
This new poll from Gallup just goes to show that the large majority of Americans believe that big government is in fact NOT the answer. Hopefully this sentiment continues and carries into the 2014 election cycle, and those who believe in big government and are in office now will have already been voted out this time next year. –PBN
PRINCETON, NJ — Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.
The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors. read more
God bless Tom Rice, we here at PBN hope this spirit of freedom persists in the American people up through and beyond the upcoming midterm elections. We’ll be doing our part here at PBN to bring you the truth in all news, will you be doing your political part? –PBN
Congressman Tom Rice of South Carolina, a Republican, is sponsoring a resolution in the House of Representatives that would, if adopted, direct the legislative body “to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.” In other words, Rep. Rice wants to take President Obama to court for not faithfully executing the laws.
“President Obama has adopted a practice of picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. In most cases, his laws of choice conveniently coincide with his Administration’s political agenda. Our Founding Fathers created the Executive Branch to implement and enforce the laws written by Congress and vested this power in the President. However, President Obama has chosen to ignore some of the laws written by Congress and implemented by preceding Presidents,” Rice wrote in a letter to fellow House members to ask them to co-sponsor this resolution.
“This resolution allows the House of Representatives to bring legal action against the Executive Branch and challenge recent read more
Sean Hannity on radio show “Hannity” on November 13th, 2013, was talking about Joe Scarborough, his one time very true and close friend. Joe has gone through a change in his philosophy and is willing to now vote for a democrat when, at one time Hannity said, “I knew a different Joe at a different time.” “The Democrats are stealing the election!”Joe had stated. ”
Now that is a more conservative Joe.” Hannity said.
“He’s now pushing the view that Republicans have to water down their message…His notoriety is based upon his criticism of tea Party patriots in this country…He wants to be loved by the media. He’s about to go ‘David Brock’…” Said Hannity about Scarborough.
David Brock had been a former conservative journalist who said, “I’ve abandoned that form of journalism,” in a story titled “David Brock: The Genuine Article?“. Brock had also proclaimed himself to be ‘a hypocrite’ and that his journalism had been unduly politically motivated.
“Joe you are making a living now trashing Conservatives and trashing the tea Party. You seem to take great pleasure in criticizing talk radio.” Sean to Scarborough.
“Do you want them managing your vagina!” Ed Schultz infamously said on his radio show. Sean played an excerpt to challenge Joe to criticize the left as much as he criticizes the right. Scarborough has been silent on the misbehavior of his foul, vulgarity cloaked colleagues on the left. By the way both Scarborough and Schultz can be heard via the same broadcasting station should you want to subject yourself to such slop.
Basically Hannity, though he wishes his former friend well and wishes him no ill will, is challenging his former friend to feel convicted for being a sell out to himself and becoming a media pet instead of being principled in his former pre-existing convictions. ~PBN

It has been reported by the “Shark Tank” that Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, stepped in and faced down riot police at The Lincoln Memorial, this morning October 13th, 2013 at the #1MVetMarch Sunday Rally on behalf of Patriots and US Veterans. Secret service and swat arrived as well. The road leading up to World War II Memorial was blocked in both directions as a Muslim was dressed in full garb. ~PBN
Sunday’s rally at the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C., which was headlined by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has broken out in utter chaos, as both D.C. Metro and Park police attempted to shut down the event.
According to one of the Shark Tank’s correspondent on the ground, two police cruiser blocked entrance into WWII memorial, in an effort to stop truckers from arriving from the highway.
Four marked Secret Service vehicles had arrived on the scene, joining dozens of law enforcement assets, who were arriving by the minute, including a SWAT team that had arrived dressing in full riot gear.
Prior to SWAT arriving, the crowd was chanting “move those cars, move those cars,” which was possibly the reason why riot control was called in.
Police have blocked the road leading up to the WWII memorial from both directions, and had also detained, questioned, and subsequently released, a man dressed in full Muslim dress.
Sarah Palin, along with few hundred of her closest friends, have headed over to the Lincoln memorial, and have busted down Obama’s barricades. Palin also engaged police, presumably to thank them for their service. -By JAVIER MANJARRES of “Shark Tank”
Our nation is not fiscally sustainable. Sustainability has a new progressive definition which requires the alleviation of poverty and a more even distribution of wealth in the world. According to progressives, sustainability requires the reconciliation of environmental, social and economic demands – also referred to as the “three pillars” of sustainability or (the 3 Es). See how conveniently faith and personal responsibility are keenly left out. That is the void the Governments of the world want to fill in your life.
Let me share something I pray changes your way of thinking, and motivates you to action. especially if you think Big Government and Social Equity will ever work. This is important and carries historical accuracy that can be traced through millenia, so please read it.
Alexander Fraser Tytler, Lord Woodhouselee FRSE (Fellow Royal Society of Edinburgh) (15 October 1747 – 5 January 1813) was a Scottish advocate, judge, writer and historian who served as Professor of Universal History, and Greek and Roman Antiquities, in the University of Edinburgh. Then Universities were with the Lord, not against him. This is what Tytler said,
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
- From bondage to spiritual faith;
- From spiritual faith to great courage
- From courage to liberty
- From liberty to abundance
- From abundance to selfishness
- From selfishness to complacency read more
