The Clean Power Plan is an extraordinary and unprecedented government overreach

In this hyper-partisan environment, it is good to know that a majority of Senators can still agree on an issue. When such a rare moment happens, the rest of us should pay attention, as it is probably something very important.

By Jim Babka - Zero Aggression Project
Our America Initiative Advisory Council Member of Liberty Coalition Partners & Co-Creator, Zero Aggression Project

Why Roger Goodell should be nervous that there’s no electoral campaign to oust him

Everyone is talking about the video showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking-out his wife in a casino elevator. There are many open calls for the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, to lose his job, because the NFL never asked the casino for a copy of the video during their “investigation.”
Is there a libertarian “teaching moment” available in this story? Is there something special you could say to your friends about it? We think there is…

Thirteen Years On, Our Choice Is Between America and Fear

By Robin Koerner
Our America Initiative Advisory Council Member for Liberty Coalition Partners

Lights at WTC

 

The politics of our nation since 9/11 have been the politics of fear.

Because of fear that one of us is a terrorist, we've allowed our intelligence services to listen into our private conversations; because of fear of terrorists from abroad, we have killed innocent people in foreign nations (supposedly to protect ourselves here); because of fear that our planes will get blown up, we let government agents put their hands on our children's crotches and look at our naked bodies, and because of fear that the economy will implode, we've given trillions of dollars to organizations that have brought us to that point.

Marita Noon: Don’t give up America’s economic and competitive advantage

By: Marita Noon (Diary) - Red State

Hillary Clinton is battling climate change instead of terrorism

"This is the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face as a nation and a world.”

With 9-11 nearly upon us, ISIS is brazenly beheading American journalists—with a promise of more to come; Christian congregations have been bombed during worship, churches have been destroyed, monasteries attacked, entire cities purged, hundreds of thousands have fled, while others have been slaughtered; and cities, weapons, banks, and key infrastructures are being captured. Surely, with all of these horrors playing out before our eyes, the crisis in Syria and Iraq is the “most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face.” No, the quote above was made about climate change by Hillary Clinton—the heavy favorite for the Democratic 2016 presidential nomination—before a standing-room-only crowd at Senator Harry Reid’s seventh National Clean Energy Summit (NCES 7.0) held in Las Vegas on Thursday, September 4.

The vast Sonoran Desert of the American Southwest lies in the political territories of California and Arizona and reaches south into Mexico. Its arid landscape is home to human industry and a complex ecosystem full of unique flora and fauna, mesas, canyons, arched rocks and other processes of deep time.

Militarized Police Turn 'Protect & Serve' into War on American Citizens

By David Harris-Gershon - Daily KOS

The militarization of America's myriad law enforcement agencies is well known. Gone are the days of police officers normatively seeing themselves as integrated parts of a community's social fabric. "Officer Friendly" has been replaced by what Radley Balko calls the "Warrior Cop" – soldiers armed with battlefield-tested weapons looking to suppress insurrections and engage in tactical missions in American neighborhoods.
