Root Truths



Oak Root Truths address key and foundational truths that, in many cases, have been forgotten in their original meaning or forgotten entirely by our citizens.

#14   America's Moment to Decide By David White – 02/15/2018

James Lowell Russell lived during the years where nearly half of all the deaths in all the wars fought by American soldiers occurred. Dying on American soil, the Civil War claimed at least 620,000 lives, and some say that figure is closer to 750,000. It was by far the bloodiest of wars this nation has ever fought. Although the loss of so many lives was grievously costly, the result of the war was that a nation so divided was preserved,...Read more

#13 Is the Electoral College in the U.S. Constitution By Douglass V. Gibbs – 12/12/2016

James Madison in Federalist Essay #10 warned against "an interested and overbearing majority" and the "mischiefs of faction" in an electoral system. By faction he meant "a number of citizens whether amounting to a majority or minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, averse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community." This is why the founders created a republican government rather than a pure democracy...Read more

#12 Recounts, Constitutional Law, and Impeachment By Rick Joyner – 12/10/2016

Recounts can be legitimate and important for verifying the results of elections, but the way that this one is being done is illegal, unconstitutional, and potentially violating the most basic rights of millions of Americans who cast their votes but may not have them counted in the election...Read more

#11 Judicial Tyranny By Rick Joyner – 12/09/2016

Thomas Jefferson warned that “Judicial Tyranny” was the greatest threat to our Republic. He has been proven right by the scenario he predicted would unfold, and has, with judges legislating, or making laws, from the bench that would violate the Constitution and the will of the people...Read more

#10 “Falta Uno”: A Background on Cuba By Dr. Tom Barrett – 11/30/2016  
    At 1AM on Saturday, November 26, Cuban dictator Raul Castro announced the death of his brother Fidel on Cuban television. Within thirty minutes the streets of “Little Havana” in Miami were filled with dancing, celebrating Cuban-Americans. And five hours later an artist who apparently works quickly had painted and displayed a sign with graphics of Satan and flames, along with text in both English and Spanish that read, “SATAN: Fidel is now yours. Give him what he deserves. Don’t let him rest in peace.”...Read more
#09 Trumpeting the Truth: Triumphing Over Political Correctness By David White – 6/29/2016
    It has been said a nation that sanctifies the profane will profane what is sanctified. This is why the Old Testament priests were charged to teach the difference between the holy and the unholy (the profane) so that the people could discern the clean from the unclean for themselves. ...Read more
#08 Will Great Britain Escape from the European Union? By Tom Barrett – 6/22/2016  
    This is not a rhetorical question. I’m going to tell you which countries—of all the other nations in the Eurozone—hope that Greece stays, and which hope Greece will exit peacefully (but swiftly). But first we have to understand what the Eurozone (EZ) is, and how it differs from the European Union (EU). ...Read more
#07 Who Cares if Greece Leaves the Eurozone By Tom Barrett – 7/21/2015
    This is not a rhetorical question. I’m going to tell you which countries—of all the other nations in the Eurozone—hope that Greece stays, and which hope Greece will exit peacefully (but swiftly). But first we have to understand what the Eurozone (EZ) is, and how it differs from the European Union (EU). ...Read more
#06 Restoration of America: A Doctrine of Property  By Karla Perry – 8/7/2013
    Jefferson penned the famous line encapsulating American freedom as the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Time has eroded the meaning Jefferson sought to employ with the words “pursuit of happiness.” History professes that Jefferson almost certainly borrowed the idea embodied in this phrase from George Mason’s Virginia Declaration of Rights, May 1776: ...Read more
#05 The Great Hope  By Rick Joyner – 4/12/2012 
    As we just celebrated the resurrection of Jesus, let us resolve to live by this truth. Spurgeon once said, “Very few Christians believe in the resurrection.” When I read this, I thought it was a misprint, but I immediately had the witness of the Holy Spirit that it was true. We are told in Romans 10:10 that we must believe in our hearts, not just our minds, for it to result in righteousness. We believe in the doctrine of the resurrection, but if we really believed in the resurrection in our hearts, our lives would be radically different....Read more
#04 Top Ten Gay Marriage False "Facts" ~ Part 2 – 12/07/2010     
    We’re in the middle of the Top Ten false “facts” reported by Judge Vaughn Walker in his decision to overturn Proposition 8 in California—a decision that could erode marriage and First Amendment rights in the entire country. See yesterday’s column here if you missed the first five false “facts.”

6. “No credible evidence supports a finding that an individual may, through conscious decision, therapeutic intervention or any other method, change his or her sexual orientation.” (FF 46)   Read more
#03 Top Ten Gay Marriage False "Facts" ~ Part 1 – 12/06/2010     
   When one judge overturned the will of more than seven million Californians last week (Aug.04, 2010) in Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, he listed 80 supposed “findings of fact” (FF) as evidence that Proposition 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Many of those 80 findings are not facts at all. They’re lies or distortions.   Read more
#02 Wall of Separation of Church & State – 07/21/2010     
    Establishing the Christian Faith as Free from Government Legislation or Control.
The “wall of separation between Church & State” was never in the U.S. Constitution,i. Bill of Rights, ii. or any other Amendments. iii.    The phrase “wall of separation between Church & State” first was penned in January 1802 by President Thomas Jefferson. iv.   Read more
