Andrew Napolitano: An American nightmare

fromPJMedia:  We see "the behavior of a police state where the laws are written to help the government achieve its ends, not to guarantee the freedom of the people — and where police break the laws they are sworn to enforce."

Have gun, can't travel

fromReason:  New York City’s arbitrary restrictions on transporting firearms give SCOTUS a chance to curtail rampant disrespect for the Second Amendment.

The war on cash ramps up in EU

fromEconomicPolicyJournal:  The 'war on cash' cContinues as a major halt to Eurozone issuance of €500 notes begins. The U.S. has already abolished currency denomination over $100. The pretense is always crime.
Individual Liberty: America's First Principle     Economic Policy: Statism Versus The Free Market

Whatever Mueller finds, gag-orders and no-knock raids should appall everyone!

fromTheDailyBell:  This should raise red flags to the most rabid left-wing liberal, the staunchest thin-blue-line conservative, or anyone in between who cares one iota about personal freedom or an impartial justice system.

Record cold forces rethink on global warming

fromPJMedia:  The precepts of environmental religion inconvenienced by reality.

Police in Houston promise to go after and ‘track’ those who criticize police

fromFreeThought Project:  "We’re going to be keeping track of all of you, and we’re going to make sure that we hold you accountable every time you stir the pot on our police officers."

Thomas Sowell: Random Thoughts On The Passing Scene

Current observations of a genius.  Some financial institutions may be considered "too big to fail," but contemporary Western society may be too frivolous to survive.  The Romans had bread and circuses to keep the masses passive and unthinking.  We have electronic gadgets, drugs and pornography.  Like the Roman Empire, we too may decline and   ...

Chriss Street: The Sun Is Engaging In Climate Change Denial

Another problem for Al.  The sun is known to be the main driver of all weather and climate. With 99.86% of the mass in our solar system, the great ball of violent fire in the sky has recently gone quiet in what is likely to be the weakest sunspot cycle in more than a century and actually flatlined in recent days. Weak solar cycles, like the current one,   ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Global Warming

A most anti-science idea.  "But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact," said President Barack Obama in his 2014 State of the Union address. Saying the debate is settled is nonsense, but the president is right about climate change. gives the definition of climate change: "Changes in average weather conditions that persist over  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Stormy Weather And Politics

The political utility of dire predictions.    It was refreshing to see meteorologists apologize for their dire — and wrong — predictions of an unprecedented snow storm that they had said would devastate the northeast. It was a big storm, but the northeast has seen lots of big snow storms before and will probably see lots of big snow storms  ... MORE

John Stossel: Climate Catastrophe

The real world effects of fossil fuel.   People argue about whether the "consensus" of scientists is that we face disaster because of global warming. Instead of debating whether man's greenhouse gasses will raise temperatures, we should argue about how we gauge disasters. If you take most environmentalists and climate scientists at their word,   ... MORE

Deroy Murdock: Global Warmists Getting Hot Under Collar

Where is the warming?     As I start to write these words, I am on my Manhattan balcony savoring a Friday evening. It normally is oppressive this time of year. Stifling humidity and sweltering temperatures relentlessly squeeze New Yorkers in a brutal vice. The infernal stickiness typically keeps it from cooling down, even at night. It is not unusual     ...

Global Warmists Flee The Arctic And Move To California

The Arctic is having record cold this summer.      The cold is going to produce the most Arctic summer sea ice in a decade. After being obsessed with the Arctic and Polar bears for years, there is no mention of this in the press. 78% of the US has been below normal temperature over the last 10 months. Almost the entire country except for    ... MORE

Another Inconvenient Truth For Global Warmists

by Mark Prigg.    Great Lakes finally ice-free after record freeze. It has been a long, cold winter for much of America - but the Great Lakes have really suffered. Forecasters finally revealed today that all of the Great Lakes including Lake Superior are now ice free. It marks the end of a record breaking 7 month stretch where the lakes were covered    ...

Thomas Sowell: Poverty And Snow Storms

The exit route is obscured.     Many years ago, in upstate New York, there was a lady who was caught in a fierce snow storm that produced conditions called a "whiteout." That's when the snow is falling so thick and fast that all you can see in any direction is just sheer white. This lady wandered around in the storm, struggling to try to get home,    ... MORE

William Sullivan: Tilting At Climate Windmills

Another round of hope and change, anyone?        The sheer egotism in big government mouthpieces claiming that they can rescue mankind from all the natural threats which afflict us should be laughable.  And make no mistake -- for many of us, it is. For my money, the humor in such egotism doesn’t get any more obvious than then-governor  ... MORE

The Chilling Effect Of EPA's Wood-Burning Stove Ban

by Larry Bell.      Where's global warming when we need it? It seems that even wood isn’t green or renewable enough anymore.  The EPA has recently banned the production and sale of 80 percent of America’s current wood-burning stoves, the oldest heating method known to mankind and mainstay of rural homes and many of our        ...
