Foreign Interests Found Funding Anti-Fracking Campaigns in America

There is strong evidence the Russian government is colluding with radical environmentalists in order to disrupt and stop other oil companies, like Chevron, from competing with its own natural gas provider, Gazprom. Russian oil interests connected to Putin are also funneling money to anti-fracking protesters in the U.S., using offshore money laundering schemes to disguise the funding sources. Continue reading

A Mike Huckabee Presidency Revives Interest in the FairTax — But is it?

Proponents of the FairTax zealously claim it will abolish the IRS, creating a simpler system that is easier to comply with and less intrusive. But abolishing the IRS the FairTax way creates a whole new big bad monster – the Sales Tax Bureau (STB)! The headaches of the “income tax return” are merely being replaced with the headaches of the “family consumption allowance” application. Continue reading

Is Ted Cruz the New Champion of the Flat Tax?

Cruz is wise to champion a flat tax early on in the presidential race for the White House, it may be enough to tip some undecided Republicans over to him, especially non-social conservatives who have not yet warmed up to him. He has a long history of advocating for a flat tax. And if he does become president, Cruz is the aggressive, gutsy type of leader who will make it happen. Continue reading

Recall Starts Before Anti-Common Core Arizona Schools Superintendent Even Takes Office

Diane Douglas, a little-known, outspoken opponent of Common Core who ran for Arizona Superintendent of Schools on that issue, surprised everyone this fall when she won. Incredibly, only five days after the election – the day it was announced she had won – a couple of opponents launched a recall effort against her. They formed a political committee and started a Facebook page, which has almost 10,000 likes already.

Obama’s Science Czar Wants Self-driving Automobile Mandates to Further Agenda 21

Driverless cars will sacrifice freedom in place of vague sustainability. Clear evidence has emerged over the past few years that man does not cause global warming – which is why the environmentalists sneakily changed the phrase to “climate change” – yet these radical policies are still being adopted at great economic cost to taxpayers, both through taxes and rising personal expenses.

Libertarians Can’t Leave Their Love of Toll Roads

It is bewildering that so many on the right, particularly normally fiscally prudent libertarians, continue to advocate for toll roads. In fact, some are even criticizing conservatives who oppose them. Terri Hall, founder of the group TURF (Texans United for Reform and Freedom), found herself under fire by a libertarian magazine in August. Reason’s Robert Poole wrote an article labeling Hall and those who oppose toll roads as “right-wing populists.” He was worried that Hall has been effective ginning up opposition to toll roads, both in her home state of Texas as well as influencing a prominent article that recently ran in The Weekly Standard.

Second Amendment Hurdles and Liberal Hypocrisy

Washington Times columnist Emily Miller has written a jaw-dropping book about the arduous process required to legally own a gun in our nation’s capital. At first glance, since the cover features Miller in a pink tank top holding her SIG Sauer, it appears to be a basic story about a girl learning to shoot a gun for the first time.

Nevada Cattle Rancher Standoff Far More Complex than Simple Lawbreaking

Cliven Bundy claims that he inherited “pre-emptive grazing rights’ on federal land because his ancestors kept cattle in the Virgin Valley since 1877, before the Department of the Interior was created. However, by continuing to graze his livestock on federal land for over 20 years after he stopped paying fees in 1993, Bundy may have acquired “prescriptive rights;”

NFL Rejects Super Bowl Ad Due To Subtle Second Amendment Reference

Who would have thought a TV commercial would be rejected for subtly promoting one of our constitutional rights? Not just any right, either, but one so important the Founding Fathers codified it as the Second Amendment to our Constitution. Daniel Defense, which manufactures AR-15 parts and accessories, submitted a commercial for the February 2, 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII to be played in New Jersey at the Meadowlands, which would be broadcast worldwide.

Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Would Impose Global Internet Censorship

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is being touted as a free trade agreement that will benefit the Pacific Rim countries, Canada, Mexico and the U.S. It is being called “one of the most significant international trade agreements since the creation of the World Trade Organization.” It standardizes 12 countries’ laws, rules and regulations in order to streamline trade. But the American public hardly knows anything about TPP. Secret meetings are being held by un-elected government trade representatives to discuss it. In place of Congress, corporate representatives are making decisions on everything related to trade. Corporate interests are essentially replacing American laws.

Trade Promotion Authority is Not the Free Trade Utopia it Seems

Thirty-five of the 36 House Republican freshmen in Congress have said they would like to provide President Obama with “Trade Promotion Authority” (TPA), which would allow him to “fast-track” the negotiation of reciprocal trade agreements, instead of wrangling through the specifics with Congress. Ostensibly, it would make free trade agreements easier to implement.
