Is warming dangerous? We will answer some of the most important questions regarding Climate Change and the policy implications regarding the conclusions of the IPCC.

My latest piece at Ricochet.
Back in the summer of 2008, I remember asking my liberal friends if they were put off, even a little bit, about how Barack Obama wasn’t just admired, but nearly worshiped. A normal American, I said, thinks it’s creepy that his fellow “free citizens” produce iconography like this, or this, or this. That’s the kind of stuff produced by artists…

Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks talked about his latest book, "Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto" at The Heartland Institute this week. It was a fun and lively talk. Watch the video.
Matt Kibbe: The individual has to protect their liberty by taking responsibility and working to stand up to the government. “The government goes to those who show up," he said. "If we don’t show up, the power goes to those who do, who may corrupt the power. We have to show up.”
