Ron Paul: Unintended Consequences and The Texas ‘Big Freeze’ Energy Disaster

 Via Tom


Last week Texas experienced a cold snap that resulted in serious statewide damage, death, and destruction. The collapse of the state’s energy grid left millions of Texans in the dark and freezing for days at a time. Tragically, at least 30 people died.

There are many reasons why Texas became like a Third World country, and we should be careful not to pin all the blame on just one factor. But it seems clear that the disaster was to a large degree caused by political decisions to shift toward “green” energy generated from solar and wind and by Governor Abbott’s authoritarian Covid restrictions.

Abbott, who won a “wind leadership” award just this month, oversaw the near-collapse of wind energy generation last week. Yet the politicization of energy generation in favor of “green” alternatives over natural gas and other fossil fuels has led to the unintended consequences of freezing Texans facing multiple millions of dollars in property damage and worse.

An Invigorating Spirit of Patriotism

Andrew Jackson thought of himself as not an innovator or man of ideas, but that he must revive and continue Jeffersonian principles in the federal government. He was a man hostile to the clamoring abolitionist radicals and in general to the various “isms” of the North, sure to cause strife where none should be. His conception of patriotism included a determination to uphold the national honor and interests, even at the risk of war.

Why the Capitol Riot Terrified the Elite


These days, it sure looks like they have them right where they want them. Using the storming of the Capitol Building as a pretext, the media-government alliance has targeted Trump, his supporters, and their fellow travelers harder than ever before. Many on the right consider the January 6 storming to have been a dream come true for the leftist elite—giving them the ability to impeach Trump again, deplatform right-wingers, and weaponize the Justice Department against the establishment’s foes. Everything, though, may not be as it first seems. There’s no reason to be despondent or worry that the Left has sealed its ultimate victory—it has done no such thing. Rather, the storming, for what it's worth, proved the power of ragtag populists and exposed the elite’s shaky foundations. There’s a reason they’re so terrified.

NC: Teacher Asked Students to List Their Political Party and Why, Then Publicized Their Responses, It Didn't End Well

 Via David

There’s been a lot of controversy over Joe Biden’s seeming reluctance to want all the public schools opening up as soon as possible. Obviously, that’s not making a lot of parents very happy.

But if they saw what just happened at Porter Ridge High School in Indian Trail, North Carolina, they just might not want to send their kids back.

A teacher, as part of an assignment, asked kids to list what political party they would choose and had them write it down, and explain why. The teacher then publicized to the rest of the class what each student had chosen and what they had written, with conservative students being bullied, according to WCNC.

Black History Month: The Facts

 Via Carl

February is Black History Month and a time to celebrate the many significant and far reaching accomplishments of black Americans.  Instead we’re endlessly bombarded by a vitriolic media, Hollywood, and academia with claims that America was founded on slavery.  Christianity is rejected as "the white man's religion that justified slavery." 

A historical review shines the light of truth on these false charges.


Despite the assertion that America cornered the market on slavery, slavery has been a worldwide institution since the beginning of civilization.  Thomas Sowell, renowned black economist and philosopher, provides insights about slavery in his book (chapter titled “Twisted History”).

Trump Officially Endorses Ex-Aide Max Miller in Primary Battle Against Impeachment-Supporting Republican

Fox News reported Trump on Friday endorsed one of his former aides, Max Miller, for Congress in the 2022 race. Miller will attempt to unseat GOP Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio in the state’s 16th district next fall.

The endorsement came weeks after Gonzalez was one of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach the former president over his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Trump previously indicated that he would play an active role on the campaign trail during the midterm elections.

“Max Miller is a wonderful person who did a great job at the White House and will be a fantastic Congressman,” Trump said in a statement through his Save America PAC. “He is a Marine Veteran, a son of Ohio, and a true PATRIOT.”
