Oh, The Humanity!

Oh, The Humanity!

A half-dozen terrorists in line to be extradited to the USA to face charges tried to get out of it by arguing that if convicted, they’d be subject to inhumane conditions at the Colorado Supermax prison. Lawyers for radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza and five other men indicted in the U.S. on various terror charges between 1999 […]

Revisiting The O.K. Corral

Revisiting The O.K. Corral

In 2011, the Monument Fire ripped through the Huachuca Mountains in Arizona—land belonging to the U.S. Forest Service.  Following the fire, floods and torrential mudslides destroyed mountain spring water lines to the town of Tombstone. Yessir, the United States Forest Service owns that land, and they not only allowed it to be decimated by wildfire […]

Ed Secretary Wants More Money for Gov’t ‘Pre-K’, Won’t Support Tax Breaks For Stay-At-Home Moms

Whatever it takes to convince parents to cede their parental responsibilities and turn their children over to “the village” (i.e. the State) as early as possible, that’s what they’ll support…and demand your money to implement it. Notice the socialist key words in his statements.  I have highlighted them in bold: Eric Scheiner reports at CNS […]

Here we go again! Andrew Restuccia reports at The Hill: The Energy Department said Thursday it expects to begin tentatively approving new taxpayer-backed loans for renewable energy projects in the coming months.

So You Don’t Want To Vote For Romney…

Patriots, it’s pretty inevitable at this point that the GOP will nominate a RINO for president.  We’re stuck with the cards in our hand. I understand the temptation to sit out the election or split off and create our own party.  I get it.  I really do.  But the reality is, if we do that […]

Oregon Save Our Schools – Affiliated With Socialists And Occupy?

teacher union

This week, a post on a new blog appeared that supports a teacher’s strike in three East Multnomah County school districts. The blog purports to represent an organization called Oregon Save Our Schools, and seems to have started in January 2012 in anticipation of a strike by the Gresham Barlow Education Association (GBEA), a local […]

  • Have Democrats Pulled Too Far Left? May 28, 2015
    The Obama years have been politically good for Mr. Obama; they have been disastrous for his party. In the last two decades the Democratic Party has moved substantially further to the left than the Republican Party has shifted to the right. Republicans control 68 of 98 state legislative chambers and the most state legislative seats […]
  • Inequality Is More About Successful Firms Than Successful People May 28, 2015
    New research is suggesting that inequality is not driven by executives grabbing more income at the expense of workers within their companies. Instead, it is driven by some companies having higher average income than others. A lesson from this research is that inequality is unlikely to be solved through policies that ensure that the gains […]
  • To Protect Our Climate, Stop Purchasing Coal May 28, 2015
    Coal-fired electricity is responsible for about 80 percent of carbon pollution from our state’s electricity sector, and the Colstrip power plant in Montana is one of the most-polluting plants in the American West. The takeaway is clear: We need to help Colstrip’s main owner, Puget Sound Energy, protect Washington customers from Colstrip’s costs, set an […]

  • Bernie Sanders’ Fossil Socialism May 29, 2015
    Picturesque: a large, celebratory crowd listens to inspiring oratory near the shore of Lake Champlain. The speaker is Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, announcing his candidacy for president of the United States. It’s a fiery, detailed, leftwing speech—about what you’d expect from this 73-year-old self-described democratic socialist and grandpa. But columnist Byron York noticed something odd. […]
  • A Surge for Justice May 29, 2015
    In the District of Columbia, what Jill Leovy calls the Monster is, speaking in geographic terms, on the retreat, moving steadily east across the Anacostia River, pushed away from the city center a little farther each year by an influx of wealth. The same basic pattern applies in New York City—outward from the center, pushed back […]

    Quentin Kopp, who once chaired the California High-Speed Rail Authority and led the effort to persuade voters to pass the 2008 law authorizing its construction, is speaking out against the project as currently planned. To succeed, he says, high-speed rail needs to run on dedicated tracks at high speeds and frequencies. Instead, the current plan […]

  • Amtrak & Innumerate Liberals May 26, 2015
    A number of articles in National Review last week supported the Antiplanner’s view that more infrastructure spending wouldn’t have prevented the May 12 Amtrak crash in Philadelphia. Rich Lowry says Amtrak is a huge waste that carries so few passengers that it is “a rounding error of American transportation.” John Fund shows that Congressional budget […]
