  • We must overhaul the role of the TSA and who pays the bill

    by Glenn Mollette

    You probably think this doesn’t apply to you. Wrong. Even if you never enter an airport your hard earned dollars are paying big salaries and big benefits to thousands of federal TSA workers – right now.

  • Wolf: Tyranny in our time

    Americans must repudiate the political class

    by Dr. Milton R. Wolf

    Americans are beginning to recognize the disturbing similarities between President Obama and the fallen Richard Nixon, but the comparison that may matter more is between Mr. Obama and King George III.

    “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance,” in the words of the Declaration of Independence.

  • Debate on gun control should ask whether Congress has power to regulate

    President Obama called for more gun control in his State of the Union address. The effectiveness of his proposals have been the subject of heated debate. But both sides are missing the larger question: Does Congress even have the right to regulate or ban guns?

  • Ron Paul: drones, and the imperial presidence

    by Ron Paul

    Last week the US Senate took a break from debating the phony cuts known as “sequestration,” for Senator Rand Paul to hold a 13-hour filibuster to force the Obama administration to state whether it believes the President has the right to kill American citizens with drones on US soil. I find it tragic that there has to be a discussion on an issue that should be so self-evident.

    Hugo Chávez Frias, President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, passed away on March 5, 2013, due to severe health complications. For at least the past year and half, the Venezuelan head of state had been battling cancer that continued to appear in spite of several surgeries. He traveled to Cuba for a new round of treatment this past December 2012, naming his vice President, Nicolas Maduro, as his successor, should the worst happen.

  • The American breed

    by Raoul Lowery Contreras

    The sun rises every morning over Washington D.C. throwing light on a major political conflict brewing between disparate people and groups using similar arguments against a grand bi-partisan coalition assembling support for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

    Most of the anti-Reform chatter comes from three groups and people they influence; the Federation for American Reform (FAIR), the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS, and NumbersUSA.

  • Rival immigration reform plans could ignite Capitol Hill fireworks

    by Basilisa Alonso

    The comprehensive immigration reform proposal spread out Jan. 29 in Las Vegas by President Obama could eventually put as many as 11 million undocumented immigrants, about 80 percent of whom are Hispanic, on a path to U.S. citizenship.

    It is could also light up the sky with an awesome display of political fireworks by the Fourth of July.

  • Fiscal Cliffhanger A study in government fear mongering, Partido Libertario dice: Cut Federal spending now

    An open letter to American voters from Geoffrey J. Neale, Chair, Libertarian National Committee

    Dear Voter,

    You’re being scammed. Conned. Deceived.

    Big Government politicians are trying to whip you into a frenzy of fear over what they like to call the “fiscal cliff.”

    But it’s just their latest episode of a cliffhanger drama. They’re using it to continue their reckless government overspending and stampede you into paying higher taxes.
