OPINION: Orewellian Political Supremacists Are Back: Doublespeak Covid Strategy Now Applied to Mass Shootings

The political supremacists are back: Opportunists and self-anointed elitists, who know best of course, and who exploit almost every tragedy to impose their values on the rest of us. What George Orwell described as “doublespeak” by the Party (Big Brother), the pattern is the same when it comes to the most high profile issues of […]

Doc Skoly’s Federal Lawsuit is NOT OVER! Even though he’s back work.

Lawsuit is not “moot”. Dr Stephen Skoly may have won a significant battle last week in his fight to continue providing critical surgical care to his patients, but the larger legal war is not over. Even though the RIDOH finally relented and removed its October 1 compliance order that banned him from seeing patients in […]

Vestis Virum Facit Versus Verba Virum Facere

Progressive Democrat State Senator Jonathan Acosta may be correct on the policy of a State House dress code, but for a reason that illustrates why he’s devastatingly wrong as a teacher.

Rhody Reporter: Axe the Act – H5445

The Rhody Reporter is flabbergasted at the scope of a wildly progressive bill just passed by the RI legislature. It would cede all legislative and executive prerogative on RI carbon emissions to an unelected state commission. Mark Zaccaria explains en route to asking everyone to call the governor and beg for a veto!

Turning Government Schools into Left-Wing Advocacy Shops

The brand of “civics education” being pushed at the state and federal levels would undermine representative government across Rhode Island and the country.

The Left’s True Seed of Collapse

Think about how bizarre a world it must be for a law school not to want somebody involved in a history-book-level case as a professor, even for a single course.

The Republicans’ Sexist Progressive: Fenton-Fung

An identity-politics bill submitted by Fenton-Fung is so shockingly in-your-face in its progressivism that it’s difficult to see how conservatives could possibly consider supporting her if it isn’t a mistake or an aberration.

The Lopsided Value of Voter Data

As citizens call for increased transparency from government, we have to be vigilant about what is transparent and what is not.

Rhody Reporter: Marijuana Sales in RI

Rhody Reporter Diana Lozowski takes a look at how the State’s Bureaucracy has morphed what could have been a simple licensing process using existing procedures into yet another feast for connected insiders. In short, You Gotta Know a Guy. Too bad that kind of overhead drives up the price. Too bad that those in the most need have to overpay because of cost structures designed to feed insiders. The surprising conclusion: At least it’s available now to those in need.

Rhody Reporter: Mail Ballots in Nursing Homes

Rhody Reporter Diana Lozowski examines some of the exploitation that occurred last November as political operatives descended on Nursing Homes and other Congregant Care facilities around the Ocean State. Their aim was to enter mail ballot applications for as many Seniors as they could, whether or not the voter really understood what was going on. Diana lays out the problem and then offers practical solutions to insure fairness in upcoming elections.

Day One of the Unity Regime: Suppression of Speech

The Rhode Island National Guard and State Police are complicit in a partisan attempt to suppress free speech from a particular point of view, and neither our politicians nor the news media nor the self-proclaimed civil rights advocates care one bit.

I Did Not Speak Out, Because I Was Not Saje

One can agree or disagree with the governor’s strategy for handling COVID-19, just as one could agree or disagree with socialists and trade unionists when the Nazis came for them, but we shouldn’t give over our civil rights in the bargain.

WJAR’s Valicenti Editing: Don’t Trust Media to Protect Our Rights

At the outset of 2021, progressives and the local news media have sent a dangerous message to Rhode Islanders, an early symptom of metastasizing fascism.

TCI: The Next Step in Government by Fiat

The governor gave herself unprecedented power to make us do and not do things for our own good (from her perspective) with COVID-19, and there was never any reason to believe she would restrict that philosophy to the pandemic if she could get away with pushing the envelope. Well… she’s pushing the envelope.

Rhody Reporter: Fines by Executive Order

Diana Lozowski notes all the extra-legislative authority Governor Raimondo is exercising in the service of enforcing her lockdown orders and muses (along with two prominent legislators) that her excellency is skating on thin legal ice.

Rhode Island, It Isn’t You… It’s Them

If the people of Rhode Island are going to tolerate the queen’s destruction of our livelihoods as she attempts to contain outbreaks in our state, we ought to know why she can’t prevent them in her own inner circle.

Court Appointments and the Governor’s Power

Raimondo wants you to follow rules that she, alone, has developed and proclaimed. Whatever their thoughts about the coronavirus, Rhode Islanders should insist that she must follow the rules that our representative democracy purports to impose.

Rhody Reporter: Rock the Vote

Mark Zaccaria analyzes the role of unsolicited Mail Ballots in the 2020 Election and asks the question: “Do we want an Election Day or an entire Election Season?”
