He is also the Founder and Chief Editor of the Instigator News Network. In February of 2007, Erik was the first to break the story of Barack Obama’s ties to militant Chicago preacher Rev.

“We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded [as the military].” – Barack Obama, 2008 If Hillary Clinton had been elected as our president in 2016 and was seeking reelection in November, George Floyd would probably still have met …

Last week in this space, I illustrated how liberalism has been nothing more than the soft-socialist wedge radical leftists have used over the last several decades to incrementally advance a megalithic socialist state. Further, that our 50 years of employing tolerance, fair play, guarded rhetoric and capitulating to liberal demands …

Once upon a time, I wrote a regular column for the local Gannett fishwrap of record, having been recommended to the editor by the man who’d recently become our city’s mayor and abandoned his writing slot to avoid any conflicts of interest. Several years ago, I got kicked off of …

It should go without saying that Americans have been wound pretty tight over the last five months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Aside from concerns over contracting the illness or infecting others (I know many health care providers who remain quite worried over the latter aspect), social distancing, quarantining and …

What kind of mayors allow violent demonstrators to destroy their cities in piecemeal fashion with protracted rioting? What kind of governors allow cities in their state to burn similarly at the hands of rioters? What kind of elected officials ignore the protestations of the citizens and business owners who elected …

This week, I thought we’d take a respite from the Chinese coronavirus, communist agitators, ginned-up charges of racism and juvenile public-policy proposals, and examine a couple of items that made news over the last few weeks. These garnered less attention than they otherwise might have given the above stories, which …
