We have been covering the “John Doe” investigations of Scott Walker and Wisconsin conservatives since January 2014, when it came on our radar after a state court judge quashed certain subpoenas.

Since then, we’ve had over 25 posts, detailing the depths to which Democratic prosecutors sank in the effort to get...

Canada’s equivalent of Fox News shut down early this morning.

In a land where the state run Human Rights Commission works tirelessly to squash free speech, Sun News Network will be missed. Sun News’ closing leave the network’s commentators like Ezra Levant, who’ve consistently spoken out against Canada’s penchant for political...

Bill Maher has been on a free speech tear lately, and if you look back at the last few months it makes perfect sense.

In December of 2014 he was booked to speak at UC-Berkeley’s commencement; but liberal students who disagreed with his views on Islam and free speech tried to shut...

This seems to be a disturbing development in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo killings:

France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and those glorifying terrorism…

Florida Satanic Holiday DIsplay

The first questions one must ask are, When did Florida begin allowing Satanic holiday displays in their capitol at Christmas, and why would Satanists feel the need to celebrate the birth of Christ?

While I don’t know the answer to the first question, I’ll take a guess at the second.

Common Core is generating a lot of concerns around the country, and teacher input without fear of retaliation is essential.

The reality is, however, that teachers critical of Common Core may be intimidated by school district and state officials into silence.

Writing for the majority, Justice O’Connor said that “just as a State may...
