Pastor Dr. Chuck Baldwin
According to his web site click here , as a young man – our Minuteman of the Month for February 2013 had decided to pursue a career in law enforcement. He planned to join the U.S. Marine Corps and afterward begin working his way thru law enforcement management”.
Little did Dr. Chuck Baldwin know when he answered the call to duty in the summer of 1970 that it would be for a different commander in chief – yet in a struggle that by no means was less challenging and stressful.Today (God does have a sense of purpose for us all ) Pastor Baldwin has indeed found himself in law enforcement management ; as a matter of fact he can now be said to be working directly under the ultimate law-giver. He is a straight shooting pastor, a good shepherd and one who doesn’t mind setting the record straight (must see Youtube video here) with his reluctant namesakes. There’s much, much more but suffice it to say we are very privileged and excited about Dr. Baldwin’s willingness to serve as our February 2013 Minuteman of the Month.
May your tribe increase brother Baldwin, may your tribe increase . .
Judge Roy Moore
Minutemen United believes we are starting the year off right by selecting Alabama Judge Roy Moore as our Minuteman of the Month for January. In 2003 an because of his love for the Lord, then Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Moore was removed from his office by a nine judge “ethics”panel. It seemed that an Alabama peer review board was quite put out by the good Judge’s “acknowledgement of God” and his refusal to remove the foundation of our constitutional republic – the ten commandments – from his court venue.
Ten years later and in a strange twist of fate, Judge Moore now finds himself right back in the same position he found himself in a decade ago by winning back his job as Supreme Court Chief Justice in the November 2012 election in Alabama.

We have met Judge Moore on several occasions and traveled to Alabama in 2003 to stand behind him and can tell you with the utmost certainty that he is definitely a Man of God. Once again, we find ourselves in the presence a Christian Brother who is willing to “share the love, the truth and the hope of Jesus Christ regardless of the consequences”.- may his tribe increase.
Dr. Robert Jeffress
Dr. Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas left quite a first impression on us here at Minutemen United. Here is a leader of a mega church in Dallas Texas who shoots from the hip and tells it like it is to his “Wimpy” namesakes. After a brief interview with him over the phone we believe him to be the real deal and the good pastor has agreed to be our Minuteman of the Month for December. He likes the Minutemen and the feeling is mutual. How could we resist ? Here is a church leader that is ready and able to “share the love, truth and hope of Jesus Christ with an entire nation…regardless of the consequences”!
As a matter of fact we like him so much we want to clone him and have our crack scientific research staff here at Minutemen United working day and night on it. To date our efforts have come up wanting, but we promise we will keep the midnight oil burning until we can duplicate the good brother.
In the meantime, may his tribe increase…and soon !
One of the most meaningful elements of the Thanksgiving saga centers on God’s providential hand concerning an Indian known as Squanto. He was born and raised amongst an Indian tribe known as the Patuxets. They were one of the fiercest tribes located in New England. This particular tribe was especially brutal towards any visitors they might encounter.
As a young man, Squanto was kidnapped and sold into slavery. He was taken to a notorious slave-trading port known as Malaga, which is located off the coast of Spain. Fortunately for Squanto, instead of being sold and shipped off to North Africa, he was rescued by some local friars. It was here that Squanto became familiar with certain aspects of the Christian faith. Little did Squanto know at this stage of his life that God was preparing him for a significant role that he would later play at Plymouth.
Upon their arrival, which in God’s providence was 6 months prior to the landing of our Pilgrim forefathers and foremothers, Squanto was dismayed to find that his entire tribe was missing. He searched diligently, but all that he found was skulls, bones, and his village lying in ruins. Out of all that Squanto experienced thus far, this was probably the hardest blow yet. Unbeknownst to him, after being kidnapped, a plague swept through his tribe and wiped out every single member of his village.
Squanto wandered aimlessly for a time, but eventually found refuge with another more peaceful tribe that was led by the chieftain Massasoit. While adjusting to living after the manner of this tribe, one day Samoset brought news to him concerning a band of folks that were hard pressed to stay alive. It was at this point God’s purpose for Squanto became apparent. The arrival of the Englishmen became for Squanto his purpose, vision, and mission in life. To him, the Pilgrims were lost in the wilderness and they desperately needed someone to show them the ways of the wild. Of course, once the Pilgrims learned Squanto’s testimony, they believed he was their Joseph. Just like Joseph was sold into slavery and suffered many hardships and injustices to preserve life for Israel, Squanto was America’s Joseph to the Pilgrims.
From the moment Squanto entered the Pilgrims’ lives by stating in their English tongue “welcome,” he mentored them with the necessary means to survival. He taught them how to fish, plant corn, stalk deer, plant pumpkins, refine maple syrup from maple trees, discern which herbs were good for food or medicine, and which were the best berries for consumption. Besides all these manifold benefits, Squanto introduced them to the pelt of the beaver. It was this new development that improved their economic condition, just as the prior help improved their health and physical condition.
As great as these improvements were, however, the Pilgrims still suffered hardships. Governor Carver was suddenly struck down. He died three days later. William Bradford was unanimously chosen to replace him as Governor. Soon after, another temptation came that would throw the colony into despair. Captain Jones who transported the Pilgrims in the Mayflower to these shores decided to return to England. Captain Jones before he left begged the Pilgrims to return with him because he greatly feared for their future. And though the offer was contemplated, not one of the Pilgrims budged. Their perseverance in the midst of sickness, deprivation, and death had forged a special bond in the love of Jesus Christ that the Pilgrims were not willing to abandon.

American Parson of African descent tell blacks “it’s time to end slavery to the Democratic Party” chastises Planned Parenthood for “having killed more blacks than KKK” could have imagined killing and balks at gay association with black plight.
Chris McMurray’sVirginia bakery had been open only since May, barely three months, when advance teams for Joe Biden walked in and offered him a photo opportunity with the Vice-President of the United States.
Standing on “his faith in God” he declined this golden business opportunity. McMurray said he’s hoping folks will understand he just didn’t want to be part of a photo op for an administration whose policies he doesn’t agree with and in business that he had built himself and not .
