on October 7, 2018, 7:29 AM / in Opinion

By Chuck Baldwin  Patrick Henry may have said it best: It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous […]

Animal Lawyers Sue Bronx Zoo to “Liberate” Elephant

Last week, we wrote about the unconscionable decision by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the main accrediting body for zoological institutions, to allow PETA to present a poster at the AZA annual conference. The AZA giving space to anti-zoo PETA is like the NAACP giving space to the Klan, and we criticized AZA head Dan Ashe for his naivety. We didn’t […]

GOP Senate Candidate: Why Won’t Congress Release Names of Congressmen Accused of Sexual Harassment

on October 7, 2018, 7:14 AM / in Opinion

I find it so hypocritical of Congress (both sides of the aisle) on how they protect their activities that are clearly illegal (a total misuse of Tax funds) to cover their sexual games.  The creation of this fund using TAX MONEY to pay off victims should in itself be a crime and the creators and users charged for being involved.
