BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~Senators and crony corporatists deep-six proposed EPA reductions in biodiesel mandates~ (Image courtesy of Wikipedia/Nate Beeler - Politicalcartoons.com) Despite what I thought were persuasive articles over the years (here, here and here, for example), corn ethanol and other biofuel mandates remain embedded in US law. As we have learned,...
BY PAUL G. KENGOR I recently wrote about a shocking piece in the New York Times peddling a line we literally would’ve once expected from the Daily Worker or Pravda. The Times ran a strange article asserting that Soviet Bloc women enjoyed “better sex under communism.” This was merely one such article in an odd and at times almost-celebratory series...
~The Obama era “Climate Science Special Report” demands a “red team” analysis~ By David Wojick, PhD Several months ago a brief furor erupted when the New York Times leaked the final draft of the upcoming Climate Science Special Report (CSSR), an extremely alarmist rendition of what is supposedly happening with Earth’s...
BY ALLEN WEST There are times when you want to believe that something won’t happen — but sadly, it does. Such is the case with the GOP. The people voted a GOP House and Senate majority into office, believing they would right the ship of state. Then, when these lawmakers said...
LLOYD MARCUS, THE UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN My biggest frustration is seeing conservative/Christian family members and friends overtaken by liberalism. I think it happens when they're alone in the dark sleeping. Liberalism takes over their body like in that movie, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." One morning they awake saying, "The second amendment...
BY BOB BARR In spite of this horrific news from Las Vegas, I remain convinced that Americans, on the whole, are the most kind, moral, and resilient people on the planet. This is why crimes and tragedies such as mass shootings shake us to the core; they challenge what...
BY ALLEN WEST It was on September 17, 1787 that our rule of law, the US Constitution was signed in Philadelphia. History tells us of an exchange that occurred outside of Independence Hall between Benjamin Franklin and a Philadelphia socialite, Mrs. Powell. Mrs. Powell inquired of Mr. Franklin, “well, what...
BY SELWYN DUKE There’s a disclaimer many of us have been conditioned to utter, quite reflexively, and it’s something that has got to stop. When preparing a defense of the United States (against, lamentably, other “Americans”), we may preface it with, “Well, I know our country isn’t perfect” or, as...
LLOYD MARCUS, THE UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN As a black proud American, I was repulsed learning that the NAACP sent out a press release accusing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of violating his players free speech rights. In a nutshell, Jones told his employees, if you don't stand for our national anthem,...
~Ecojustice wants government “cops” to investigate, punish and silence dissent~ By Tom Harris "BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU." This slogan appeared on posters of the Party leader in the dystopian society of George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. It was a constant reminder of omnipresent government surveillance for “thoughtcrime” – independent thinking. In Orwell’s book, Ministry of Truth ‘history...
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~The agency’s carbon dioxide climate “endangerment finding” was a kangaroo court process~ Suppose a crooked prosecutor framed someone and was determined to get a conviction. So he built an entire case on tainted, circumstantial evidence, and testimony from witnesses who had their reasons for wanting the guy in...
LLOYD MARCUS, THE UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN A friend of Rush Limbaugh thought it was a mistake for Trump to condemn NFL players for taking a knee during our national Anthem because there are more pressing issues warranting Trump's attention. Rush told his friend the NFL issue is important because it is...
BY SELWYN DUKE Before the blood was even dry in Las Vegas, Democrats coast to coast were pushing gun control. Hillary Clinton led the charge, finding time between fainting spells to tweet “Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work...
BY ALLEN WEST It’s amazing to me that we actually have a group – of degenerates — who are sending out a clarion call to attack and destroy the statues and monuments of Christopher Columbus all over the United States. The fact that there must now be 24/7 police security...
By Ed Kugler My wife and I were driving south in Montana the other day and stopped at our favorite Amish store. It's a neat little place, filled with handmade food, produce, and unique items. A little Amish lady was outside selling her baked goods. We chatted for awhile. It...
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~It drives anti-fossil fuel agendas and threatens wildlife, jobs, and human health and welfare~ Sustainability (sustainable development) is one of the hottest trends on college campuses, in the news media, in corporate boardrooms and with regulators. There are three different versions. (Image: The Crystal Ball by John William Waterhouse) Real Sustainability involves...
JARRETT STEPMAN, HERITAGE FOUNDATION With Jon Stewart off the air, it seems the left has found a new progressive comedian it can look to for all the big cultural and public policy debates. After spending September lobbying on air to keep Obamacare, Jimmy Kimmel went on a rant this week on...
LLOYD MARCUS, THE UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN It has always bugged me how fake news media helps Leftists portray themselves morally superior, more caring and compassionate than the rest of us. The dirty little secret is Leftists are cold and calculating only caring about implementing their socialist/progressive, anti-God and anti-American agenda. In...
~President Trump must reverse EPA’s climate change “Endangerment Finding”~ By Dennis T. Avery Nine years ago, the Obama Environmental Protection Agency issued an “Endangerment Finding.” It claimed that methane leaks from natural gas production and pipelines, and manmade carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels, cause dangerous global warming that poses...
Izzy Kalman Resiliance to Bullying Therapists are not trained to teach clients how to stop being bullied/rejected. The recent horrific murder rampage by Elliot Rodger in Santa Barbara, California, on May 23 got the country reeling again. We wonder why we can’t stop these senseless massacres, virtually all committed by young...
