Tyler Rowley: And down the slippery slope of sewage we go in the name of love.

If you go about your life without recognizing the reality of God’s existence, you will live a life of insanity. To not acknowledge the most basic and important fact of life — that creatures require a creator — you will not recognize all of the subsequent truths that are built upon that one great truth.

Travis Rowley: The Damaging Racism of the Race Obsessed In Providence Schools

There isn’t a student within the Providence school system – long controlled by union-Democrats – who can read.

Yet, the recently replaced principal of Hope High School, Matthew Buchanan, writes in the Boston Globe how concerned he is with the skin tone of the people replacing former administrators.

Rhody Reporter: Big Brother in Rhode Island

Mark Zaccaria looks at all the ways your personal freedoms are being crowded. It turns out that technology makes it easier and easier for government to keep a detailed dossier on everyone. Add to that the problem of elected officials always needing larger and larger doses of tax dollars to achieve the same effect. That’s a prescription for trampling on personal freedoms in pursuit of public revenue. D’ya think that’s what the Founders of the republic envisioned?

A Novel Purpose for Campaign Funds

Regulating candidacies shrinks the pool of candidates and ensures that the successful politician will often be the one with the greatest talent for corruption.

Shot in the Arm or Permanent IV?

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.

Mark Zaccaria explains en route to asking everyone to call the governor and beg for a veto!

COVID Compliance and Killing Kids

Although the bureaucratic experts who continue to suppress our lives (and the journalists who enable them) might believe differently, numbers showing that compliance rules had little, if any, effect on the pandemic aren’t some interesting abstract datapoints on a page.

RI Education Insiders Lack Incentive to Succeed

Having Rhode Island so thoroughly under their command, insider special interests have little incentive to perform. No matter how central their role in some failure, they can be assured that they will gain by the supposed solution.

Smiley Out the Ethical Door

Brett Smiley’s exit from the executive branch in Rhode Island exposes one of the central conceits of ethics laws.

Providence Government’s Fight Against Residents

At a press conference of the city government to announce new policies, what could it mean for a speaker to pledge to “fight” and “take back our city”?

Americans are seeing two different realities in the Storming of the Capitol, neither perfectly accurate, and there are two paths forward, one better than the other.

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.

Mark Zaccaria gives a short primer on Progressive vs. Conservative approaches to government.

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.

Politics This Week with John DePetro: The End Game Settling In
