Al Gore: Cool It!

Since Dora believes everything the New York Times prints, maybe this will be of interest. Of course, it's not a complete repudiation, so I doubt it'll change the opinion of most liberals, but here goes: If one believed everything Al Gore had to say about climate change, there'd be no need to be inte...

MN Journalist Megan Boldt: What's $2.16 billion anyway?

What's $2.16 billion in budget surplus funds anyway? Chicken-feed, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press political reporter, Megan Boldt . Her almost criminally-brief article on the fictionally-low $2.16B surplus (it's actually more like $3B if government did their accounting the way they require ...

Habibullo Abdussamatov: Russian scientist b-slaps Gore more!

How sweet it is. Yesterday, on Thursday, March 1, Minnesota Public Radio had a "sold out" public insight forum scheduled that was to focus on the "hot-air" topic of global warming. Except it had to be canceled. The reason? Wait for it... A huge blizzard! Of course, global warming revisionists will p...

Al Gore: A Convenient Lie

While the "useful idiots" in Hollywood seem poised to honor former VP Al Gore with a Best Documentary Oscar for his science fiction film, An Inconvenient Truth , Cato Institute environmentalist Patrick J. Michaels has posted a column which eviscerates the film's plethora of fictional "scientific fac...

"The country's full"? I've never heard a more ridiculous thing in my life. America has plenty of room, I think, to welcome in folks from other countries who: 1) Want a chance at the American dream, and 2) Care enough to immigrate or get a student/worker VISA the legal way. I celebrate that, because ...

What Fox News is, is balanced. Unlike CNN, CBS, NBC or ABC. While most of them have one token conservative on the air, Fox News has hired a fairly well-balanced talent roster. For example, Bill O'Reilly is more of a conservative Democrat in the Zell Miller mold than he is a conservative Republican i...

Here's a recent example of why FOX is the worst excuse for journalism in this country: On Tuesday night, Bill O'Reilly's show was dedicated to a discussion of the Mark Foley scandal. They cut away at three different points to footage of Foley, which lasted 15 seconds each. During each cut-away, the...

The answer's simple, WhatsUp. Liberal talk radio doesn't succeed because talk radio appeals to folks looking for an alternative voice, not the same ol' stuff they get everywhere else. The mainstream establishment media is overwhelmingly liberal. Whether it's the New York Times, the Minneapolis Star ...

Jennifer Lea Strange: Held her wee for a Wii too long!

Simcha Jacobovici's Exodus theory doesn't align with facts

When the children of Yisrael fled Pharaoh and followed Moshe and haShem out of the land of Egypt, they had no idea where they were being led. They knew it was not going to be anything as casual as going on Orlando vacations, to be sure, but I doubt they realized just what sort of trials awaited them...
