Protesting Their Protectors

  When you get right down to it, the protests said to be about the shooting of Michael Brown are really about how differently the black and white communities view the police.

Take Your Pick of Lies About Ozone, Methane or Mercury

  Is it surprising that the Environmental Protection Agency continues to tell big fat lies about anything it wants to ban, but is reluctant to show the “science” on which the bans are based?

Being Anti-Energy is Being Anti-Humanity

  Everything you need to know about how perverse and dangerous the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is summed up in its latest report. Released on November 2, it issued the same tired, old and untrue claims of “severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems” The IPCC wants the world to […]

Obama’s Not the Only Democrat Hearing Voices

(This was during the dark days when a rogue IRS investigated and persecuted political groups […]

Obama Declares an Amnesty War

  The same mindset that could conspire to foist ObamaCare on Americans by deception is at work to do the same thing with an unconstitutional, unilateral announcement of amnesty for millions of illegal—oops, “undocumented”—aliens living in America.
