This article first appeared on The Rebel website, One of my favorite cartoons showed Moses on the mountain with the Ten Commandments. The caption said, “A great idea, who is going to fund it?” The point, when applied to almost anything including politics, is that the ultimate control is financial control. Distribution of taxing powers […]

This article first appeared on The Rebel website. The Vatican released its full Encyclical titled Laudato Si, subtitled “On care for our common home”, on Thursday, 18 June 2015.

This article first appeared on The Rebel website. Based on a brief article of mine in The Landowner Newsletter.

This article first appeared on The Rebel website. The headline read “Liberal MPs hold press conference on muzzling of scientists”. As usual, the headline differs from the story.

What is a ”progressive orthodoxy”? Why is “ecology” included? Correctness is […]

The following article first appeared on The Rebel website. Derek Bok said if you think education is expensive try ignorance. A rarely considered or measured cost is exploitation of ignorance. Confidence tricksters use people’s limitations to take advantage. Global warming is just another example, albeit the largest in history, because the entire world was fooled. […]

The following article first appeared on The Rebel website. Evidence abounds that taking money from one group and giving it to another does not work. Redistribution is the basic belief of Marxism, socialism, and liberalism and appears in various forms. Instead of solving problems of inequality it prevents the problems being identified or resolved, and […]

This article of mine originally appeared on The Patriot Post website. “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.” John Adams, 1787 How much of […]

Pope Francis advocates the global warming agenda of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), with the help of the Obama White House. Apparently, he doesn’t know their ultimate objective of reducing and controlling population generally contradicts Catholic doctrine. The irony is that as a Jesuit, the ideological church police, he should know, but […]

There are many parallels between the Jonathan Gruber story and what has occurred in climate science. Gruber used a computer model to produce justification for a US national healthcare system. This parallels the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) use of computer models produced to justify the need for international climate control. They both claim […]
