Dear Recover America Friend,


There are certain days on the calendar that stand out for Christians around the world, but for American Christians, after the day we celebrate the birth of Christ and his burial and resurrection, there is none more sacred than the day God birthed the greatest and freest nation the world has ever known, July 4, 1776.  On that day, the Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 brave men, effectively signing their own death warrant if God chose not to intervene on their behalf in their declared war with King George III and England to secure their freedom to create a new nation among the nations of the World.

Every American family would do well to
read the Declaration of Independence before eating Bar-B-Que or going to the beach. It consists of a mere 1,337 words, listing 27 complaints against King George III for the world to see, constituting the proof of the right to start a rebellion.

I fear our generation may be the one to see our freedoms end due to the depth into decadence we have plunged since the ‘60’s.  How we need a new awakening of the church and a return to righteousness and morality.  I can assure you of this…those associated with Recover America are praying and working toward that every day.

Words are inadequate to express our appreciation for those of you who invest, pray and treasure in our efforts.

Thank you!


Recently I wrote to you of the Remnant Alliance that we have been invited to join, aligning with five other national organizations, all dedicated to taking back the ground that Satan has stolen from us over the past generation.  The Alliance consists of The Liberty Pastors Network, led by my good friends, Pastors Paul Blair and Dan Fisher;  The Salt and Light Council, founded by Dran Reese; The Patriot Academy, founded by former Texas State Legislator and former candidate for the Texas Supreme Court, Hon. Rick Green; County Citizens Defending Freedom, founded by Steve Maxwell; and Turning Point USA, founded by Charlie Kirk.

Each organization is uniquely gifted to contribute to calling the church back into the battle to save America, but each organization has recognized that they can do more together than they can accomplish alone.  We have heard the heart cry of so many who ask, “Why can’t your organizations work together?”  This new Alliance is our offering to accomplish that.


Mark Your Calendar and Save OCTOBER 17th for our Gala with Charlie Kirk at the River Oaks Country Club.  Many more details will be forthcoming, but this will be a sold-out event and we want you to be a part of this official kickoff for the 2024 Presidential Elections as Charley Kirk discusses our new Remnant Alliance and our partnership reaching out to pastors and Christians across America, beginning with Texas.  This is not an event you want to miss.  A flyer listing the levels of sponsorship will be available very soon.  Visit in the upcoming weeks for more details.


"That’s My Take" radio commentaries are now airing on all the Bott Radio Network and American Family Networks stations across America.  Between them, that amounts to more than 300 stations.  You can click here to listen to every clip that has aired so far.  Please pray for these commentaries to cause more pastors to join our Remnant Pastor Network.


My new book, co-authored with Pastor Steve Feazel, with a foreword by Gov. Mike Huckabee, entitled "America at the Crossroads…The America Dream or the Woke Nightmare", will be out soon.  This is the most important and timely book with which I have ever been associated.  Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council out of DC wrote:  “Every Christian should read this book before voting in 2024.”  Those who contribute $25.00 or more to Recover America this week will receive an autographed copy as soon as they arrive
Yours in Christ,
Dr. Rick Scarborough
