I Say “Limited Government,” They Hear “Anti-Government”

I do not consider the libertarian or true conservative movement to be inherently anti-government. But according to a growing number of “progressives,” anyone who seeks to limit the federal government’s regulations and interventions is automatically “anti-government.” You’ll notice that any gridlock in Congress is considered an evil: Democrats will accuse Constitutionalists of “keeping the government from functioning.” I noticed this recently in an article on a biography of moneyed Read more […]

Government Admits – No Credible Link between Ecigs and Teen Smoking!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concedes there is no “definitive, concrete link” between youngsters using e-cigarettes and smoking tobacco cigarettes. The CDC was unable to confirm a credible link between e-cigarette use and teen smoking in a series of communications with The Daily Caller News Foundation. E-cigarettes have long been subjected to a barrage of attacks. They have been accused of being a gateway to tobacco and “renormalizing smoking.” The CDC gave these Read more […]

Obama Issues First of Twenty-Three Promised Executive Orders to “Curb Gun Violence”

We now have one of the first of twenty-three promised “gun-violence-curbing” executive orders from President Obama. This one encourages mental health practitioners to report any patient information to the FBI which would disqualify that patient from owning a gun under Federal law: While the 1993 Brady law prohibits gun ownership by individuals who have been involuntarily committed, found incompetent to stand trial or otherwise deemed by a court to be a danger to themselves or others, federal Read more […]

Can we Repeal the Spying Measures Embedded in the Omnibus Bill?

  Conservative Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) has been fighting for our liberty since the day he entered Congress. His most difficult battles have been against his own party’s decision to support unconstitutional government spying on innocent Americans in the name of “protecting” us from the terrorists. Recently, Amash has been forced back onto the warpath after Congress decided to pass the horrible Omnibus Bill funding many of the most egregious liberal hobby horses around (like Planned Read more […]

Video: John Kerry Admits Cutting U.S. Carbon Emissions Wouldn’t do Anything

John Kerry admitted that even if the U.S. were to totally revamp its energy system, and every American were careful to live exactly the way climate alarmists want them to live, it wouldn’t do anything, because the real problem is the developing world. According to Kerry, they’re the ones who are responsible for 65% of global emissions. At the COP-21 climate conference in Paris, he stated: “… The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only Read more […]

Gun Sales Hit Record High for 7th Month in a Row

Every time there’s a mass shooting or a terrorist attack, two things happen in the aftermath. One, liberals call for more gun control, and two, lots and lots of people go out and buy guns and ammo. The more liberals call for more gun control, the more people go out and restock and add to their arsenal. The Washington Free Beacon reported: The Bureau processed 2,243,030 checks through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in November, an increase of 236,111 checks over the previous Read more […]

There Are No Half Measures That Can Fix Gun Violence

The main problem with all of the proposed fixes for gun violence in the US is that only extreme measures will make any difference, and extreme measures aren’t going to fly in centrist central DC. Let’s look at the polar extreme fixes that might work: 1) Absolute totalitarianism Now hold on before you get all bent out of shape. Nazi Germany did a very good job of creating a basically stable low-crime society largely free of unplanned gun violence. Sure, everyone and everything was documented, Read more […]

Global Warming Summit Will Yield 300,000 Tons of Carbon

Compare that with the average American’s “carbon footprint,” which is 20 tons a year. This is one of those things where those in power are the exceptions to the rules they come up with for everyone else to follow. Politicians like Obama and John Kerry can point their fingers at all American conservatives and “deniers,” and blame them for global warming and all the pollution that is supposedly causing it. But when they do it, it’s different. After all, they’re the ones who are trying Read more […]

Pew Survey: The Feds and the Media Have Most Negative Impact on America

Of all the things that have a negative impact on the United States, from terrorists to criminals to drugs to whatever, the top two things Americans claim have the most negative impact on America are the federal government (if you include Congress) and the media: An extensive new Pew Research Center survey finds that 65 percent believe that the news media “has a negative effect on the way things are going in the country.” Some 56 percent said the entertainment industry has a negative effect. Read more […]

Poll: Americans Overwhelmingly Don’t Trust the Media or the Government

This comes as no surprise. Who in the world would trust for-profit organizations like the national media and government to tell us anything other than what they think we want to hear? The government is supposed to act as our representatives who abide by the Constitution in making sure our freedoms and liberties are never abridged. And the media is supposed to act as sort of a watchdog on the government in making sure they are doing what they were elected to do. But are the government and media Read more […]

Donald Trump Wants to do What with American Muslims?

So in another Twilight Zone episode of history repeating itself, Donald Trump is not ruling out tagging, logging, and tracking every Muslim in the US just in case one might be a terrorist: “Some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule,” Trump said. “Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy,” he added. “We’re going to have Read more […]

Pundits Quick to Blame Snowden for Paris Attacks

If the aftermath of 9/11 taught us anything, it is that centralized governments slouching toward totalitarianism never let a crisis go to waste. And, in a corollary, citizens are far more credulous and trusting when they have just experienced a trauma. So, in the wake of the Paris attacks, it doesn’t surprise me at all that the intelligence community is calling for ever more lenient restrictions on their data collection and powers. And people are giving it to them. In fact, the intelligence Read more […]
