Ralph Nader Shows Bipartisanship that Conservatives Can Join

How often does the Heritage Foundation publish that Ralph Nader shows bipartisanship that is good for conservatives? But the Daily Signal basically promoted Ralph Nader’s HuffPo editorial about Left and Right working together to terminate the Export-Import Bank. I have recently traveled from New York to California talking to audiences from the left, right and middle about my new book, Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State. The topic has been how Read more […]

The Corporate Welfare Export-Import Bank is Opposed by Everyone But the Politicians and the Cronies

Candidate Barack Obama, according to Patrick Brennan at the National Review, Corner blog, “decried the bank on the 2008 campaign trail as wasteful and ‘little more than a fund for corporate welfare.’” He was referring to the “Ex-Im Bank.” Now, Ralph Nader is calling for the end of that bank. So is Larry Kudlow of CNBC, extolling the Tea Party for attacking the Export-Import Bank. John Stossel of Fox Business spoke at George Mason University with economist John Boudreaux. Stossel Read more […]

Heritage Foundation Comes Out Against Police State

Perhaps the Heritage Foundation has covered this issue before and I missed it. But I was pleasantly surprised to see them sound the alarm over a man who was arrested in Florida for videotaping police. According to CBS Miami: The charge against freelance disc jockey Lazaro Estrada is obstruction of justice.  He was arrested on St. Patrick’s Day after using his cell phone to record a video of an arrest at a Southwest Miami-Dade store where he was spinning records for a promotional gig. Miami-Dade Read more […]

President Barack Obama Would Rather Break His Promise & Cover Up Genocide to Get Support for Atrocities in Syria

This is just another example of how meaningless are Barack Obama’s promises. I noticed this story because the Heritage Foundation blog recommended a segment by CNN’s Jake Tapper. Here it is. The nationalist Young Turks initiated the Armenian genocide of 1915, a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Armenians in the Ottoman Empire that included massacres and mass deportations. The government of Turkey, which emerged after the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire in 1922, has maintained a policy Read more […]

Thieves Forced To Pay Attorney Costs: Police Don’t Get To Get Away With Theft

Law enforcement officials don’t believe this, but people really do find it convenient sometimes to travel with large amounts of money. Law enforcement officials do find it convenient that ninety percent of all U.S. currency, when tested, shows trace amounts of illegal narcotics. So, when Nebraska police pulled over a husband/wife couple on a speeding violation and managed to convince them to voluntarily allow them to search the vehicle, they must have believed they hit pay dirt. As the Heritage Read more […]

The Swelling Parasite: How The Federal Government Rewards Itself For The Recession

In the real world, when you give someone responsibility for a task, if that person fails in the task then they are usually demoted in some way. The responsibility is taken from them. For some insane reason the American people have, since the 19-teens at least (Yes, long before FDR’s New Deal—which illustrates my point), given the Federal government responsibility for a prosperous economy. They have totally failed, and they get to reward themselves for doing so. Specifically, rather than Read more […]

Conservative Christian Black to Replace Sen. Jim DeMint

Ten days ago, we reported that Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) would be resigning his senate seat at the first of the year to take on the leadership of the Heritage Foundation.  I truly hated to see DeMint leave the US Senate as he was the most conservative member of the Senate and served as a great balancing rod for the GOP. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R) then had the task of appointing a replacement for DeMint.  It didn’t take her long to form a short list that many believe contained the Read more […]

Key GOP Senator Resigns to Take Helm of the Heritage Foundation

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) has become an influential and outspoken member of the US Senate.  After serving six years in the US House of Representatives, DeMint was elected to the US Senate in 2004 and re-elected in 2010.  He currently serves on the Committee of Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, Committee on Foreign Relations and the Joint Economic Committee. Compared the other 99 Senators in Washington, DeMint may be the most conservative of Read more […]

Nobody Knows How Much Feds are Getting Paid

A new study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a federal agency, indicates that federal employees are paid about 34 percent less than their counterparts in the private sector. Aside from the obvious fact that maybe federal employees shouldn’t be the ones responsible for collecting and interpreting data on their own pay, the study is rife with problems. A Congressional Budget Office Report in 2011 claimed that federal workers earned two percent more than their private sector compatriots. A Read more […]

Defunding the Education Thugs

Some of the more welcome news to come out in the last month is the nearly wholesale collapse of faith in the American public schools. It has been reported that as few as 29% of Americans have confidence in the public school system, which only goes to prove how ineffective the system really is. The fact that even 29% of people in this country could even remotely claim to have any vestige of trust left in such a proven money and time-waster as the public school system is the best evidence that promoting Read more […]
