In a new low for CNN, it has been discovered that the network is receiving funding from foreign governments, like Bahrain’s, in exchange for posting positive content about those nations. Moreover, critical stories about such countries are apparently blacklisted.
This past weekend, the Restoring Liberty news site passed another milestone. As of Friday, it now exceeds the liberal Fairbanks News Miner in Internet traffic ranking, leaving only the Anchorage Daily News with more US web users.
According to a high-level Russian observer at last week’s APEC summit, a “national liberation movement to free the world from the U.S. occupation” is moving ahead.
Restoring Liberty’s readership has skyrocketed, surpassing most Alaskan media outlets. Read about this exciting development and see the numbers here.
On Thursday, Marine veteran Brandon Raub was apparently taken into custody by local law enforcement in conjunction with several federal agencies. Mr. Raub’s mother maintains that her son was arrested because of his “patriotic Facebook postings.” As of the writing of this column, the agencies responsible for his arrest have still not publicized a charging […]
Political consequences aside, the utter hypocrisy of the anti-American Obama administration has compelled me to speak out despite the deafening silence of the conventional press. As I pointed out to Miami’s WZAB last week, Obama’s demand for Romney’s legally confidential tax return information is exceptionally hypocritical given Obama’s enormous efforts to protect his background from public disclosure.
The past few days have witnessed an avalanche of attacks against Chick-fil-A’s supportive stance on traditional marriage. Read the following summary of some of the most outrageous efforts to hurt Chick-fil-A.
Today, Alaska’s long-time lone U.S. Representative Don Young endorsed pro-gay marriage, pro-abortion, and pro-Obamacare Democrat Mazie Hirono in the contested U.S. Senate Race in Hawaii. See the video endorsement here and read why Young made the endorsement.
Just as I predicted in 2010, federal money to Alaska Native Corporations (ANC’s) has begun to dry up. This year, the drop has been dramatic. Read this story to see why the ANC’s are in real trouble.
What do Hillary Clinton, Ed Rollins, the State Department, and Senator John McCain all have in common? They are hammering Michele Bachmann because she dared to question the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence in DC.
In what may prove to be the “Crime of the Century,” recent evidence has come to light that some of the world’s largest banks were involved in a scheme to manipulate a key interest rate index, thereby cheating investors out of hundreds of billions of dollars.
Happy Independence Day! I hope you enjoy the collection of articles that Kathleen and I have put together to mark this 236th anniversary of our extraordinary country. Allen West’s Balkanized States of America as well as Heritage’s Does the Declaration of Independence Still Matter are especially good reads. I also want to welcome you to […]
The chief justice’s rescue of the individual mandate is a massive expansion of federal power, now permitting the federal government to regulate, by taxation, its citizens’ “failure to act” or passivity. I challenge you to go back to the first 150 years of U.S. jurisprudence and find any Supreme Court opinion that would suggest such a construction of Congress’s power to tax and spend under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution.
A leaked document reflects that the Obama administration is negotiating an international agreement to allow multinational corporations, operating inside the U.S., to be exempt from many US laws. And it gets worse. The agreement sets up an international tribunal to decide which U.S. laws the multinational corporations can ignore. The agreement is called the Trans-Pacific […]
CNN reports that the ultra-liberal Andrew Hurwitz, the self-proclaimed “intellect” behind Roe vs. Wade, will be sent on to Obama for appointment following today’s Senate cloture vote: The Senate Monday voted narrowly to end a filibuster of President Barack Obama’s pick for the California-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after a key Republican argued […]
The Tea Party is an amazing political phenomenon, one that remains strong despite the media’s all-out assault since its beginnings in 2009, and I am proud to be a part of it. If ever there was an All-American movement, it is the Tea Party. Patriotic, hard-working, family oriented, and focused on a simple request – limited […]
As I discussed during my Senate campaign less than two years ago, our nation faces some very tough times ahead, in both the near-term and certainly in the long term. Since that campaign, the state of our nation – and Alaska – has not improved; by many standards it has deteriorated. The false hope peddled […]
As most of you know, I am no fan of Mitt Romney. The only constant in Mitt’s history seems to be moving his political career forward. So, I haven’t exactly been disappointed in the recent disruption of Mitt’s coronation plans. Moreover, I’ve got to admit that I’ve enjoyed watching the Establishment’s hyperventilation over Newt Gingrich’s […]
The president’s decision to reject a proposal concerning the Keystone pipeline project is exceptionally disappointing. In short, the pipeline would have served as a major distribution corridor for crude oil from the oil sands of Canada to various refineries located throughout the United States. At a number of junctures in the lower-48, it was also […]
The United States may reject oil from Iran but that does not result in immunity from Iran’s saber-rattling in the Persian Gulf. The situation shaping up in the Strait of Hormuz illustrates the need for a serious push towards energy independence here in the United States. It defies common sense for the American economy to […]
With the top contenders for the GOP nomination fighting over who’s a conservative, I thought it might be appropriate to talk about the individual mandate, a provision in Obamacare and Romneycare mandating that individuals purchase a minimum level of health-care coverage or pay a stiff fine. Republican candidates Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney have both […]
As a Senator and presidential candidate, Barack Obama decried the use of presidential signing statements, but as with so much other rhetoric originating from Obama concerning “hope and change,” he has decided to keep things the same. Yesterday the Washington Times laid out candidly President Obama’s latest efforts to circumvent the Constitution and his own […]
It’s no secret that President Obama has an inflated view of himself. This becomes crystal clear when the President, as he routinely does, blames everybody but himself for the nation’s problems. A leader who does not acknowledge his or her own mistakes is clearly suffering from an overdose of hubris. Because President Obama apparently can’t […]
Last week, Nancy Pelosi repeated the bizarre claim that an extension of unemployment benefits would create an uptick in employment. This was not the first time we heard this insane logic. We posted about President Obama’s similar claim on December 11 in which he also declared that an extension of unemployment benefits would result in […]
