Center Memorializes One of its Original Benefactors … and one of Rhode Island’s Greatest

The RI Center for Freedom & Prosperity is consistently – and falsely – characterized by our left-wing critics as being funded by the Koch brothers. What is true, is that the “Galkin brothers” are two of our Center’s original major benefactors. The passing earlier this month or the elder brother, Robert Galkin, is a highly […]

Dr. Bostom Wins v Twitter. Did the State of RI Demand Suspension of His Account?

OPINION: Within hours of issuing to Twitter a July 14 legal letter of intent to sue, Dr. Andrew Bostom and his legal team won a major victory, when the embattled social media giant reinstated Bostom’s personal Twitter account. “After further review, we have unsuspended your account as it does not appear to be in violation […]

History Repeats Itself Once Again

No matter how or where, humanity has always had an unquenchable thirst for progress. From setting out to explore new lands from the Americas to the Moon, we have always pursued to enhance our lives and knowledge beyond that which prior generations before us have stopped. But, as of now, we have hit a wall […]

OPINION: What the hell is the matter with the media?

by guest columnist, James M Mageau of Charlestown To the Editor:      It is clear to anyone who has read and understood the intent of our founding father’s that “freedom of speech” and “freedom of the press” is essential if our nation was to succeed as a free country. Having said that, the success of […]

Long-time Ocean State radio personality and In The Dugout co-host on Monday’s, Jennifer Brien provides her THREE CENTS worth of commentary on the hot issues of the day. The standard two cents just isn’t enough for Jen to weigh-in … so we gave her an extra penny’s worth of time.

OPINION: Mass exodus of Black staffers from Biden White House

Biden is struggling to keep the Black vote due to promises he’s failed to keep. Trying to save face, Biden blames this on racism? He accused the GOP of disenfranchising Blacks after they passed “Jim Crowe” (?) voter ID laws. He even named Republicans, “The party of racism.”

Parents-United-RI Help Avoid Student Walk-out at Chariho

by Polly Hopkins This week (June 13), the Chariho School District faced a student planned walk out. Here’s the story… At Chariho High School, a teacher hung a PRIDE flag in her classroom.

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 […]

Opinion/Stenhouse: Senators can act to help reduce RI’s energy costs

Most don’t realize that Rhode Island is facing a potential energy crisis: Our state does not have the energy infrastructure needed to meet demand. As a result, we have among the highest average retail prices for energy as compared with other states. In fact, this is a New England-wide problem. As E&E News put it, […]

The Destruction of our Common Values

In a time not so long ago, Americans use to share a commonality of values. Those values being rugged individualism, freedom, hard work, but here in the summer of 2022 things look remarkably different. Those values appear to have been destroyed. There is more than a growing undercurrent of violence, apathy, entitlement and selfishness. It […]

Might THE BIG LIE actually be true? Is the “Let R.I. Vote Act” the real big lie?

Rhode Island Governor Daniel McKee is about to sign into law the “Let RI Vote Act” … which, tragically, is based on two BIG LIES. You know what the original BIG LIE is, right? According to the mainstream media and anti-Trump politicians, the BIG LIE is the ostensibly false notion pushed by former President Trump […]

OPINION: Biden cancels consumer consent

President Joe Biden’s infrastructure legislation, passed in November, 2021, undercuts consumer privacy. Buried in the legislation is a requirement that car manufacturers create a new monitoring system for cars by the year 2026. The bill requires new systems to “passively monitor” a driver’s performance to identify whether a driver is impaired.

OPINION: Did citizens really get what they wanted, or were the scales tipped?

We know that Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea removed the security provisions from mail in ballots. We know that the State of Rhode Island was taken to the Supreme Court of the United States where the case was not heard because the event had not taken place and there was no “aggrieved party“. So all said and done this seem to be the end of it. Was removing the security provisions from mail in ballots part of a bigger conspiracy?

OPINION: Katie Lied?* Biased RI Reporting on a Possible Covid-19 Vaccine Requirement for School Children (*apologies to Steely Dan)

The promise of journalistic objectivity is not fulfilled by biased RI Reporting on a Possible Covid-19 Vaccine Requirement for School Children

Now is the Time for RI Motorists to be Decoupled from California’s Oppressive Emissions Policies

Ocean State motorists dodged a bullet last December when the TCI Gas Tax was defeated here and in 13 other northeast states. The “Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI)” would have artificially increased gasoline prices by up to 35 cents per gallon, while steadily reducing available fuel supplies, by ceding a major portion of our state’s […]

Why Governor McKee Must Completely Remake the RI Department of Health

Remake RI DOH Despite claims of her ‘resignation’, the more likely January firing of Nicole Alexander-Scott as Director of the RI Department of Health (RI DOH), quickly followed by the departure of her top capo, Thomas McCarthy, presents a major opportunity for Governor McKee to remake the crumbling health organization, which completely missed the target […]

Mike Stenhouse: My Dad & Me – An Unfortunate Family Baseball Story

In December 2021 Major League Baseball owners “locked out” current players, a pre-emptive move calculated to gain negotiating advantage in the pending negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement. But did you know that elderly MLB retirees have been locked out for decades?

Rhode Island’s Human Services Workforce Crisis Causes Desperation For Mom of Autistic Child

If you reside in Rhode Island and have a child with autism, good luck. Most likely your child will be placed in an adaptive classroom and an individualized education plan will be developed for them but, unless you are very fortunate, you are going to need additional services. The saying “If you’ve met one child […]

Clay Johnson: The Marxists Underestimate The Resilience Of Our Country

What a long, hot, political summer it has been. The extremists on the left have been foaming at the mouth, desperate to enact their Marxist agenda. They covet what you have, and they are willing to use government force to take it. But the Marxists underestimate the resilience of a country built on proud independence […]

Liberty Byte: Parents Targeted?

Liberty-minded parents in the Ocean State are being targeted by school committees. Committee have supported a set of radical CRT-based curriculum guidelines that subject children to a daily diet of critical race theory. Parents are fighting back, and have organized a coalition to oppose the proposed curriculum. School committee  officials have responded by trying to discredit the parents, and has even gone so far as to try to intimidate them into silence. This is an attack on our values, and it must be stopped. Parents will not be silenced, and they will not allow their children to be indoctrinated with critical race theory. The fight for liberty is underway in the Ocean State, and it starts with the parents.

Peter Tsemberides: Rhode Island’s Wealthy Charge Taxpayers

While upgrading EV charging infrastructure may sound good on the surface to some: giving electric car owners more places to charge their glorified go-karts, it does nothing more than help the state’s wealthy. Looking at RI’s median household income of $67,167, a large majority of RI residents cannot afford an electric vehicle, making the spending virtually useless.

Fernando Villar Jr.: The Left’s Silence on Cuba is Deafening

President Obama called for an end to the US embargo on Cuba because it was causing economic hardships. Try telling the protestors about the horrors of the embargo when they are living in dilapidated homes scrambling for food while the heads of Cuba’s communist party live in lavish estates and never have to worry about missing a meal…What they’ll tell you is that the only embargo in Cuba is the one the communist regime has on its own people, whom the regime views—yesterday, today, and forever as its personal property

Travis Rowley: The Pathological Lie of the Rhode Island Left

That’s right. According to these dug-in Democrats, Rhode Island has never delivered on the progressive promise. The State doesn’t tax enough. Doesn’t spend enough. And doesn’t grant enough power to organized labor.

Sam Adofo: Teaching Liberty in School Today Is More Critical Than Ever

No doubt Critical Race Theory and Gender theory has covertly seeped in and taken over our schools, and everyday Americans are fighting back. This pushback is good because students should not be taught radical racial theory and incoherent gender theory. However, what is the alternative? It is easy to support jettisoning CRT and gender theory, but without a set alternative we leave the teaching of history to college graduates who increasingly believe in the teachings of Howard Zinn and the 1619 project. The curriculum we should put forward should be one of liberty.
