John Edwards’ Successor Lives It Up

 

The man who succeeded disgraced former vice presidential candidate John Edwards as leader of a special poverty center at the University of North Carolina School of Law is no less hypocritical — in his luxurious living versus his hyperbolic rhetoric — than his predecessor. Gene Nichol, who was once dean of UNC’s law school before […]

Moral Mondays on the Move

 

Last week a Reverend — who resides in the same category of “Reverends” as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson — impugned the intellectual integrity of Sen. Tim Scott, alleging that the South Carolina Republican is literally a mindless mouthpiece for the Tea Party. Within the constricted worldview of Rev. Dr. (dual honors of dubious worth) […]

Democrat Eyes on North Carolina

 

Since the Left, and the Democrats beholden to them, lost their grip on total power in North Carolina’s General Assembly in 2010, followed by Gov. Pat McCrory’s victory in 2012, they have largely attributed their political exile to the spending of wealthy conservative entrepreneur Art Pope. Longtime PBS mouthpiece Bill Moyers amplified the charge in […]

Mann Acts

 

Dr. Michael Mann, who under a lesser title at University of Virginia created the famed “hockey stick” chart of 20th-century temperature escalations while leveling the Medieval Warm Period, has enlisted a Climategate Cavalcade of Stars to help him enter as an interested party in a lawsuit in which my organization, American Tradition Institute, seeks to […]

Had to Be Koch Money, For Christie’s Sake

 

The amazing Koch brothers have done it again! The hypnotic trance that their money causes the conservative masses to fall under works every time, as the Soros Left loves to explain (and what a surprise — the New York Times is one of Mother Jones’s big advertisers). This time their dazzling dollars captivated New Jersey Gov. Chris […]

Vann Nath, whose ability to skillfully paint and sculpt images of Pol Pot made him one of only seven survivors of the horrific tortures at Tuol Sleng prison in the 1970s, passed away Monday. After the Vietnamese drove the Khmer Rouge regime from power in 1979, Vann painted many depictions of the atrocities carried out at […]

Hiding the Decline of Academic and Scientific Transparency

 

That’s what University of Virginia continues to do, as my colleague at American Tradition Institute Chris Horner explains today in Washington Examiner. Earlier this week UVA — as required by a court order — delivered records relating to Climategate “Hockey Stick” chart creator Michael Mann that ATI asked for in January under a Freedom of […]

Suing NASA and UVA

 

Survey results published this month by Rasmussen Reports show the public is skeptical of scientists who practice in the realm of climate change, which might cause opponents of academic transparency to think twice. The staggering findings should be a serious blow to morale within the Global Warming Governmental Science Complex. Rasmussen discovered in a national […]

Total Pawlenty Turnaround on Global Warming

 

I’ve been tough (I think) in challenging former Minnesota Gov. (and now presidential candidate) Tim Pawlenty about his past support for cap-and-trade and policies to constrain carbon dioxide emissions. In December 2009, when he first started visiting New Hampshire, he was still talking like CO2 was pollution, and still failed to remove his state from […]
