EPA spends millions on high-end luxury office furnishings

by Roger Roots All of us know that government officials love to pad their government temples of power with gleaming marble, oak and precious metals. I remember the first time I ever argued a case at the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. Upon first seeing the government building, I almost vomited …

31 percent of Americans say the government’s climate change claims are a “total hoax”

A new Bloomberg News Service poll finds that 31 percent of Americans view the government’s climate-change claims as a “total hoax.” See here. These figures suggest that the government will have an uphill battle rounding up, arresting or otherwise punishing such vast numbers.

The Government One-Percenters: Average New York School Custodian is Paid More than $100,000 Annually

Government trusters seeking to further socialize America, to raise taxes even further, to abolish (private-sector) money in politics, and further empower government must conceal certain discomforting facts. Government workers are paid at least one-and-one-half-times what private workers are paid for the same work. (In fact, careful analysis which factors in vacation time and benefits shows …

More polling shows Americans distrustful of government

The average person in the world is at least 4 times more likely to be killed by his own government than by any foreign government, any criminal, or any terrorist. Statistically, one’s own government is always the greatest source of potential danger to one’s life. For years, Gallup has been asking the question: “Do you …

California regent (and husband of a U.S. Senator) threatens U.C. with political consequences if the University fails to enact speech code

We previously reported that the University of California system–a government network subject to the free-speech provisions of the Constitution–was proposing a university-wide speech code that banned “intolerant” “expressions.” See here. On Thursday, Sept. 17 (ironically, “Constitution Day”), the proposal was the subject of a large public meeting. According to F.I.R.E. (the Foundation for Individual Rights …

Missourian criminally prosecuted for “[meeting] with legislators,” “testif[ying]” before the Missouri legislature, and “appear[ing] as a witness before committees”

Our masters in government repeatedly tell us we are to be “engaged” in politics. But when citizens “engage” in efforts to limit or rein in government–especially when such citizens become successful–they are increasingly subject to criminal prosecution and imprisonment. In Missouri, a citizen activist named Ron Calzone, who bills himself as a “citizen lobbyist,” has …

Federal workers report highest rates of job satisfaction

Statistically, a federal employee is more likely to die than to quit. They are so pampered with lavish pay and benefits that they report substantially higher levels of job satisfaction than do workers in the private sector. A new Gallup poll finds that 82 percent of government workers are fully satisfied with their retirement plans …

Another public college threatens to jail students who criticize government

As shown previously (see here), America’s government colleges and universities have become Orwellian thought-control zones where wide-scale discrimination and repression of libertarian and anti-government thought are routinely practiced. Now another government college, the College of DuPage in Illinois, has been caught falsely telling libertarian protesters that they have no constitutional right to hand out pro-freedom …

20 government-supported “climate scientists” call for their skeptics to be jailed

Last week, 20 “climate scientists”–each of whom is government-funded–signed a letter to President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Lynch calling for government to investigate and prosecute those who question or disagree with the government’s climate-change messaging. See the letter here. The letter makes numerous preposterous claims (e.g., that skeptics are knowingly promoting false science, as …
