Congress: The Swamp in The Mirror — Drain or Be Drained

Congress: The Swamp in The Mirror — Drain or Be Drained

    By Mike Smith Every member of Congress is captive to his and her constituents. They are, to be blunt, never able to outrun their fear of the electorate. No lawmaker can go beyond the will of those who hired him or her without risking electoral firing by those same people. In other words, […]

Energy Secretary Right on Climate Change

Energy Secretary Right on Climate Change

    By Tom Harris Energy Secretary Rick Perry did a remarkable thing last week: he expressed skepticism about the causes of climate change in a TV interview and, even after widespread condemnation from environmentalists and the press, he did it again a few days later before a major Senate committee.

Bernie Sanders: Influence Agent

Bernie Sanders: Influence Agent

    By Mike Smith Not even a week had passed since the Marxist-Leninist terror attack in Alexandria, Virginia, and Senator Bernie Sanders was back to his old rhetoric. Still unconcerned or unaware of socialism’s violent history, he doubled down: “Our job from coast to coast is to bring millions of people together. When I […]

The Tale of Two Cities on Police Reform: Police Need to Change how they Search Vehicles

The Tale of Two Cities on Police Reform: Police Need to Change how they Search Vehicles

Recall effort stymied by Sacramento

Recall effort stymied by Sacramento

    By Jon Coupal Members of the California Legislature apparently believe they have the power to change outcomes they don’t like.

Unity Over Clarity: How We Arrived at The Alexandria Attack

Unity Over Clarity: How We Arrived at The Alexandria Attack

    By Mike Smith Beliefs are vehicles. They take us places, and they’re not always where we wanted to go. At least half of America wants unity; the remainder is split between those who don’t and the rest who don’t care. But the biggest casualty of attack is clarity. First, please understand that this […]

Governor, legislators spend more and ignore obstacles to reform

Governor, legislators spend more and ignore obstacles to reform

    By Steven Greenhut Legislators announced a budget deal last week that spends a record $125 billion in the general fund. But most interesting isn’t what’s in the deal, but what isn’t. There’s plenty of new spending, of course, but not so much that it outpaces the rate of inflation. There are controversial “trailer” […]

California’s Descent to Socialism or How the ‘Nerd Estate’ Controls the Rest of Us

California’s Descent to Socialism or How the ‘Nerd Estate’ Controls the Rest of Us

    By Stephen Frank How do the Progressives want to extend liberty and freedom in California?  Through higher taxes, more restrictive regulations, abusive education systems, promotion of violation of Federal laws, they want chaos and anarchy—to go with the bullying on campus and in the community. “California’s progressive regime of severe land-use controls has […]
