The Elephant We Know: The Real Issue Behind The Healthcare Debate

The Elephant We Know: The Real Issue Behind The Healthcare Debate

    By Mike Smith Political leaders cannot morally indict citizens in any way without risking backlash from their constituents. This is our silent elephant in the national healthcare debate, and for everyone. It is also the single biggest dilemma for both parties, particularly the GOP, which has in Obamacare a ticking time bomb that […]

A serious climate opportunity: Why does government refuse to do the one thing that would help our forests and climate?

A serious climate opportunity: Why does government refuse to do the one thing that would help our forests and climate?

  . By Greg Walcher For years, politicians have waged war on coal, stifled oil and gas production, and advocated carbon taxes and other extreme measures to reduce carbon dioxide, while ignoring one of the most important things they could do to help.

Faith Community’s Support Sought for Ventura Council’s Homeless Shelter?    You’re being played

Faith Community’s Support Sought for Ventura Council’s Homeless Shelter?    You’re being played

By Paul D. White   Ventura churches, don’t be fooled into supporting the City Council’s new homeless shelter plan.

EVERY attempt by the City Council to elicit your approval of this project is total deceit on their part. The Council […]

Conserving Conservatism

Conserving Conservatism

    By Mike Smith America’s leftists have fully arrived where their beliefs have gotten them. So the toughest work of conservatives is already done. But the goal of conservatives is not to convert leftists to the Right; the goal is to restore our identity before it disappears forever. The days of bleeding-heart conservatism must […]

It’s Not Pro-Choice OR Pro-Life… It’s Option 3

It’s Not Pro-Choice OR Pro-Life… It’s Option 3

    By Paul D. White “For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.” (H.L. Mencken) No sentiment better describes America’s seething, counterproductive abortion debate.  Combatants always phrase the issue simplistically: “Are you pro-choice or pro-life?”  For anyone who cares about children, the answer is, “Neither one; I’m for Option […]

Munger’s Well-Intentioned But Stupid Plan That Handed Over California to the Democrats

    By Stephen Frank CRP Chairman Brulte has a new phrase, “if you break it you own it”.  Four years ago, Charles Munger, Jr. took what appears to be operational control over the California Republican Party.  Lets see the results.

Commentary: Mexico commits biological warfare on U.S.

Imperial Beach sunset Feb. 19, 2017 Mexicans released an estimated 143 million gallons of raw sewage into California beaches for a period spanning at least 18 days.

Ventura schools need to change more than personnel

Ventura schools need to change more than personnel

By Paul D. White   The timing and manner in which the Ventura Unified School District board fired Superintendent Michael Babb on Wednesday was unexpected. It indicated a strong consensus by the board to not delay in bringing in new leadership that will pursue a “different direction” for Ventura schools, as board President Velma Lomax stated.
