Kentucky’s Sen. Rand Paul appears to be on the cusp of having the Senate and the House pass the “Audit the Fed” legislation that he and his father, former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), fought for to stop the Federal Reserve’s “unchecked” and “arguably unconstitutional” meddling in the free market economy. Sen. Paul’s 2016 Federal Reserve Transparency Act

“Thank you, Mr. President. During these first 100 days, what has surprised you the most about this office, enchanted you the most about serving this in office, humbled you the most and troubled you the most?” That was the obsequious question asked by a New York Times reporter during one of President Barack Obama’s first press conferences,

One as-yet-unidentified vandal rang in the New Year early Sunday morning by trekking up to the iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles and altering it to read, “Hollyweed.” A law enforcement official told CBS Los Angeles that the prankster hiked up Mount Lee and draped two tarps over the “O”s in the sign to make

Despite the U.S. Congress passing the Consolidated Appropriations Act in December 2015 to slather another $9.3 billion of taxpayer credits on new solar power added to the electrical grid, California solar installments peaked in 2015 and are now headed south. The extension of the federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) through 2021 was quietly tucked into

Cybersecurity expert Jonathan Petit claims that it’s possible to confuse a self-driving car with just $43 and a laser pointer, according to a report from Business Insider. “Today’s self-driving cars rely on spinning sensors called lidar that can cost more than $10,000 each. But it took Jonathan Petit just $43 and a laser pointer to confuse

A member of the Los Angeles City Council has proposed a ban on adults without children hanging around the city’s parks and play areas.

The California High-Speed Rail Authority came up empty when it asked the outgoing administration of President Barack Obama for a $15 billion loan, the Los Angeles Times reports. State officials feared that with Republican Donald J. Trump taking office — somewhat unexpectedly — in January, and perhaps cutting off funding to the struggling project, which has

Blue State Blues: Thank You, President-Elect Trump, for Saving Israel

The UN Security Council resolution that was to have passed Thursday would have isolated Israel, encouraged antisemitism, and emboldened Palestinian terrorists. It also would have tied the hands of the next presidential administration, committing it to opposing Israeli territorial claims in the West Bank and Jerusalem. It might even have led to the prosecution of Israeli Prime

The surge in California gun sales continue apace, with handgun sales in the state reportedly up 40 percent this year and long sales up 100 percent, according to Fox News Insider (via Guns.com). The long gun sales are largely driven by the fact that new gun controls take effect January 1, 2017. Those controls ban

‘Legacy’: 10 Ways Barack Obama Broke the American System

obama-grant-park-2008-12-21-2016-associated-press-640x480

Much ink has been spilled, and much bandwidth spent, on describing Donald Trump’s 2016 victory as a populist revolt. Less attention has been paid to what voters were rebelling against. There were economic grievances — in the Upper Midwest in particular — but the economy as a whole is slowly recovering. (As Alexis de Tocqueville

Blue State Blues: Democrats’ Russian Hacking Story Affirms Hillary Clinton E-mail Scandal

blue-state-blues

It is odd that the very people who insisted, prior to the election, that Hillary Clinton’s email “mistake” was a non-scandal are now claiming hysterically that a Russian hacking effort tipped the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The kind of hacking that the White House, the Democratic Party, and much of the mainstream media are suddenly

Fake News: Climate Scientists ‘Save’ Data From Donald Trump

gettyimages-506091996-640x480

The latest fake news climate story has the winning headline: “Scientists are frantically copying US climate data fearing it might vanish under Trump.” This is brazen, hilarious and spectacularly misleading. No one has done more damage to “climate data” in the past three decades than the corrupt, politicized activist scientists who are now afraid that

How Ben Carson Can Save the Liberal Millennials Who Disdain Him

carson-at-cpac-getty-640x480

As much as Democrats bemoan the decline of the middle-class, it’s ironic that liberal cities tend to be the most unequal. In 2014, 23 of 25 of the most financially unequal metros were represented by Democrats, according to data compiled by The Atlantic. A prime culprit of this inequality is a labor-union supported regulation — a

castro-breakdown-640x480

The Russian-made jeep carrying the ashes of the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro broke down in the middle of his funeral procession on Saturday, forcing soldiers to push the vehicle until it could be repaired. Nearly every major news website buried the news, though it was perfectly symbolic of the Cuban regime’s economic failures, and those
