* You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
You cannot build character and courage by destroying men's initiative and independence.
And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.
                       ....... William J. H. Boetcker (1916)   Often (mistakenly) attributed to Abraham Lincoln

"The American Thinker is devoted to the thoughtful exploration of issues of importance to Americans. Contributors are accomplished in fields beyond journalism, and animated to write for the general public out of concern for the complex and morally significant questions on the national agenda."

"The American Thinker" is an original oil painting, brilliantly executed by artist Sean Cheetham. His work was featured in the critically acclaimed 2003 film Northfork, starring James Woods, Nick Nolte, and Daryl Hannah. The painting was specially commisioned for americanthinker.com. It symbolizes the thoughtful patriotism, and consciousness of the importance of history and tradition, which our website strives to embody.

Excerpt:        "(in) 2005 ... Academy Award Nominee Roger L. Simon got together with Charles Johnson (the blogger behind Little Green Footballs) and Glenn Reynolds (the blogger behind Instapundit) to create a new blog that would shed light on issues important to Americans through insightful reporting, commentary and analysis. The mainstream media tried to dismiss them as disgruntled people blogging in their pajamas. They rejected the evaluation but adopted the name, and Pajamas Media was born.     What began as an online blog site in 2005 has grown into the must-read website you are visiting today. Renamed PJMedia in 2011, this is the place where you will find news delivered in its most insightful form."

"The mission of the Jamestown Foundation is to inform and educate policy makers and the broader policy community about events and trends in those societies which are strategically or tactically important to the United States and which frequently restrict access to such information. Utilizing indigenous and primary sources, Jamestown’s material is delivered without political bias, filter or agenda. It is often the only source of information which should be, but is not always, available through official or intelligence channels, especially in regard to Eurasia and terrorism."
