Vox Features Yet Another Climate Science “Denier”- May 27, 2015
As an economist studying climate change policy for several years, I often feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone. To listen to the constant drumbeat of catastrophic predictions based on the so-called scientific “consensus,” and to witness the scathing denunciation of the “deniers” who are supposedly selling out humanity for money, you would certainly think that the periodic reports issued by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) would back up the alarmist rhetoric.

Embracing this strategy is tantamount to embracing evil.
Hillary Clinton lied when she swore she would faithfully discharge the duties of Secretary of State- May 27, 2015
On February 2, 2009, Vice President Biden administered the oath of office for Secretary of State to Hillary Rodham Clinton. As part of that oath, Mrs. Clinton swore that she would faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which she was about to enter and that she took the obligation to do so without any purpose of evasion. She lied. At the time she took the oath she was busy setting up a private email server through which she would conduct official business, one that would allow her to cloak those activities which she wished to keep hidden from public scrutiny. In doing so, she at a minimum, violated State Department regulations regarding the handling of sensitive information.
New York Times Still Deceiving About Obamacare- May 27, 2015
The New York Times is at it again. In a front page story in Tuesday’s print edition, the Times is dishonestly pushing an argument that they hope will result in a favorable Supreme Court decision for President Obama’s so called Affordable Care Act.
