The Rhode Island TCI Gas Tax Is on Hold… for Now

Last night, the Rhode Island General Assembly session came to a close without a final vote on the TCI Gas Tax. This puts the tax hike on hold for now as General Assembly leaders consider a special session later this year.


Progressives Use Umbrellas to Shield Children From Christian Prayer While Exposing Them to Drag Queens at the West Warwick Public Library

As clouds gathered over the West Warwick public library, so too did nearly one hundred individuals gather around the exterior of the building to respond to the controversial drag story hour program happening inside. Dueling rallies, with over sixty people opposing the story hour and around thirty supporting, were held on Saturday. The issue at hand for the citizens of West Warwick is whether or not it is morally acceptable to expose children ages zero to six to the inherently sexual content of a drag performance.

TCI Gas Tax: Hurting Families While Accomplishing Little

One doesn’t have to be a climate-change skeptic to wonder why our elected officials would pursue an agreement that hands over some of their authority in order to impose a significant burden on the people they represent for a small benefit to others… all just as Rhode Islanders struggle to regain their feet from the COVID lockdown that the same governor imposed through executive order.


Aging Population No Excuse for RI

April 2020 Employment: COVID Flips the Table

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.


In The Dugout: What CRT Looks Like In The Classroom

See what Critical Race Theory actually looks like in our schools – it’s shocking! The first-in depth interview (and the first local interview) with the whistleblower Providence teacher Ramona Bessinger. The interview every parent, student, and teacher must see!


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.

Providence Summer Reading List Promotes Critical Race Theory, Graphic Homosexual Sex, and Abortion To Children

The school year is ending. Parents who have children in the failing Providence Public School System are turning to the official school sponsored summer reading list to supplement their child’s education during the break.

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?

Does anybody else see headlines like the following, from WPRI, and think it sounds kind of like our state is on life support?


The Working Day of RI’s Aristocracy

The most direct evidence that something is very, very wrong in RI government is that a mayor can be so out of touch that he’d think working a standard workday justifies double pay.

Interviews & Profiles

Critical Race Theory In Chariho Public Schools

Rhode Island residents Polly Hopkins and Robert Foster met when they were students at Chariho High School in Wood River Junction, RI back in the 90s.

In The Dugout: DOH Whistleblower On Media Lockout

Mike Stenhouse brings Lisa Camuso back on the show to talk about how pervasively the Rhode Island media is ignoring her story of problems at the state Department of Health.


In The Dugout: Allen Waters on School Choice

US Senate Candidate Allen Waters joins CEO Stenhouse on this episode of “In The Dugout.” They discuss his support for the Center’s Catch-UP ESA program. This innovative policy idea would tap unspent federal funds to empower parents to customize supplemental programs for their children. These one-time Catch-Up ESAs, available to all qualified students in the state, would also immediately fill major gaps in the five-year Providence schools reform plan, by addressing current student needs. The program would be funded by unspent federal CARES Act funds.
