WLF Still Trying to Clean Up Injustice in Borax Case

This is important. I’ve written about it numerous times: a peaceful, well-intentioned inventor tries to produce environmentally clean fuel cell, and the eco-freak bureaucrats at the EPA end up putting him in jail. What’s wrong with this picture? Plenty. The Krister Evertson case is a travesty of justice. This week, the Washington Legal Foundation filed […]

Mali Update: al Qaeda Still a Threat

Via Reuters: Residents who slipped into a non-descript mud-brick house after Islamist fighters fled Mali’s desert town of Timbuktu uncovered a trove of arms, ammunition and documents – the workings of the local al Qaeda recruitment office. “We found lots of IDs, passports and birth certificates,” said El Hadj Garaba, who searched through the house […]

Pope Benedict XVI Still Unnerves the Media

True to form, CNN, Reuters, and other media outlets used the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement to dwell on ancient sex scandals, opposition to gay marriage, and a host of other things the media have never liked about a Pope who would not hew to whatever worldview the chattering classes embraced at the moment […]

Still Struggling with the Roberts-as-Hero Theory

He even fails to clearly separate his own […]

Blacks Still ‘Played’ and Controlled by Tired Old Democrat Paradigms

A black website published one of my articles.  The black publisher asked his readers to forgive me for being a black member of the GOP and review my article with an open mind.  In response, a subscriber wrote, “You can ask us to look past him being a GOP, but you can’t ask us to […]
