Climate Activists Are All Emotions, No Facts

Climate change continues to have the left up in arms – ironic, considering they hate guns. As we’ve pointed out before, this new brand of climate change activism is just a vehicle for instituting socialism. We cannot allow this to continue. Just look at the pure emotion from climate activists like Greta Thuneberg. She’s not making arguments, nor is she doing scientific research. She’s sitting in front of cameras and crying. Take it from Emma Roberts, a conservative 17-year-old from Texas: It is preposterous to me that many of my peers are so afraid of climate change that they say they can hardly think about it. I think what they should ...

It’s Time to Scrap Rogue Obama-Era Agency

When it comes to big government and federal overreach, nothing stinks quite like Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s pet project: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB is a monster of constitutional violations, and the U.S. Supreme Court has finally taken notice. The Competitive Enterprise Institute explains: The CFPB was meant to protect American pocketbooks and property. However, its founders—the drafters of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010—felt that in order to do so, it had to be protected from political interference. That resulted in the agency being insulated from accountability to the president, Congress, and the courts. Dodd-Frank gave ...

Liberal State and Local Governments Protect Criminals, Punish the Law-Abiding

As of late, liberal state and local governments are increasing their efforts to evade federal immigration laws and protect dangerous criminals rather than their own taxpaying citizens. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers recently reported that two alleged child rapists are on the run after New York and New Jersey police departments refused to hold the suspects in jail and cooperate with ICE. The first illegal immigrant was arrested in New Jersey for allegedly restraining and sexually assaulting a child younger than 16 years old. ICE filed to have the man held at a New Jersey county jail for the next two days, but the request was denied, ...

High School Cheerleaders Punished for Their Support of Trump

What a way to discourage free speech and the freedom to support whomever you please! A group of North Carolina cheerleaders were placed on probation by local education officials for posing with a “Trump 2020” banner. The students were encouraged to wear red, white, and blue and to show their patriotic pride at a football game. The photo of the cheerleaders was posted on social media and “caused people to feel uncomfortable.” Todd Starnes has the commentary: It’s not quite clear who complained about that banner, but all you-know-what broke out – leading to a school district investigation as well as a NCHSAA investigation. “Stanly ...
