As compliance inspectors fan out across the state and the state spends money to remind Rhode Islanders to follow the rules, Governor Raimondo shows by example that the rules don’t apply to everybody equally.
In its defense of the RhodeWorks tolling scheme, we see our state government hiding behind two noxious clouds.
Once “you’re almost done” shifts to “we’ll let you know when you’re done,” many people will likely tell themselves internally, “Well, I’m done now.”
Sara Alvizures of Central Falls deserves the support of anybody who values our Constitutional rights, whether or not they are religious.

The ruling of U.S. District Court Judge Mary McElroy changing election-security laws shortly before Rhode Islanders vote is a warning sign that Americans should think twice before trusting the results that follow.
Why are Rhode Islanders tolerating Democrat Governor Gina Raimondo’s assumption of power so far beyond what the government of a free people ought to assume?

The survival rate for COVID-19 is now in the range of 99.35% – 99.74%, per CDC data. But even this high rate is almost certainly on the conservative side as it does not include all unidentified cases, an important data point which scientists continue diligently to try to quantify.
Conversely, grimly, deaths from the lockdown have moved from projection to reality and are rising.
For many Black people in this country over the age of forty, the fear of losing the progress we’ve gained keeps us tethered to the abuser we were forced to wed.
It’s time for the people of Rhode Island to demand that Governor Gina Raimondo and her left-wing colleagues explain why the white people and others in this state are expected to fall on their knees to apologize for something they did not do.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue was obvious and opens the way for more educational opportunity, which is especially needed during the COVID-19 era.
In our times of turmoil, if we place what’s going on in the proper context, the solution becomes obvious (albeit not easy).
An RI Department of Health employee fears retaliation as she’s ordered to attend a meeting with multiple state officials after going public with concerns about nursing home oversight during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Accepting elected officials’ overt disrespect for the rule of law does not advance the values of equality and mutual respect, but undermines them and will move us toward a dangerous future.

The Pawtucket middle school teacher arrested for attempted vandalism provides the latest warning about the direction of education and, in turn, our society.
The Minneapolis policeman is entirely responsible for his actions, and justice should be served, but that doesn’t mean that political rhetoric didn’t play a role in George Floyd’s death.
Comparing statistics of fatal shootings by police illustrates the problem with comparing the United States with other countries, or even states with each other.

Religious freedom is critical toward our nation’s greatness, and it requires all of us to defend our religious freedom and uphold our religious virtues.
RI’s curve is approaching ZERO! States across America are opening without problem, protesters are allowed large gatherings, jobs and the economy are booming nationally… yet, our RI summer remains locked down. Why?
The Governor has just extended the “state of emergency” and the General Assembly has failed to act on its authority to end this madness, sitting idly by while the wreckage continues to mount.
