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.

Barack Obama promised to raise our energy bills. His EPA is making sure that happens, by engaging in a War on Science.

Nurse Bloomberg’s last hurrah before ceding the mayor’s office to an even more dedicated leftist.

Why ban e-cigs, which deliver nicotine to the user and results in the harmless exhale of water vapor? Because it looks like one is really smoking cigarettes … and that would send a bad message to anyone who happens to observe it. Seriously. That’s the mayor’s and city council’s justificaiton.

I am now an international media star! Ok, slight exaggeration. But I was on Canada's Sun News Network this afternoon to talk about my blog post on the Greenpeace pathetic, yet funny "Christmas is Canceled" video. http://bit.ly/1dVnGPN

I was on Fox News! ... though it was only B-roll. Nonetheless, a great piece on an important "torrent of new data is poking very large holes in what the president has called the scientific consensus about global warming."

Not sure why you don't have your own show on Fox, Jim. It's a travesty. Maybe if you were a blond.

Hitler is mad that his global warming mission ship got stuck in the Antarctic Ice. It’s not the first time he got mad about climate science — and reality — failing to cooperate with his aims.

I’d find a doctor who would take chickens and rhubarb pie as payment before I’ll submit to Obamacare.

Yes. I'm serious. My premium more than doubled. (When you count the subsidy.) 50%+ without it, and my deductible rose 75%.

Greenpeace is certainly shocked to see CNN mock it for employing a decrepit Santa to advance lies that scare kids and adults alike about the climate.

The Leviathan in the modern "democratic" state counts on us to simply throw up our hands and submit. Refuse.
