Leadership For Truth

Where Are the Voices of Truth and Liberty? A couple of items popped up on my computer this last week that made me wonder where we are as a Christian community and commitment. First I saw a local church in our community making a bold statement to their flock that said this: “…..Church will not […]

The Christian Vote

Analyzing The Turnout and The Issues This past election was called by many as “the most important election of our lifetime”. We’ve heard that before and maybe it is true. There is no doubt that if you are a Christian, you have felt the insanity in our government and our culture. If this election was […]

Luna continues to mislead readers, GOP

I would like to say that I’m surprised by defeated GOP chairman Tom Luna’s last-minute op-ed attacking me, Bryan Smith, and Brent Regan regarding our donations to Idaho Freedom PAC. Unfortunately, I’m not. Tom has borne false witness against us, and now it’s up to us to set the record straight. Apparently his peace offering […]

What SJR 102 would do for Idaho and why it’s on your ballot

If Idaho’s framers wanted the governor to write laws and spend Idahoans’ money, they would have written those responsibilities into the Idaho Constitution—but they didn’t. Indeed, a major virtue of Idaho’s government is how it separates the executive and legislative branches with the principle of the Legislature as the law-writing and appropriating branch, and the […]

OP-ED from Idaho Freedom PAC – Protect freedom: Vote yes on SJR 102

Imagine for a moment that an emergency comes up in Idaho. The governor of the state decides to wield unilateral power — to shut down the state’s economy, change laws with the stroke of a pen, and even appropriate millions of dollars from the federal government.  Imagine also that some local government agencies — cities, […]

Op-ed: Ammon Bundy sends shock waves through the political establishment

Medicaid quagmire is costing Idaho dearly

“War is hell,” as the saying goes. Every war comes with costs on and off the battlefield, especially wars fought when there is no intention of ever winning. President Lyndon Johnson’s “war on poverty” is such a war. It’s a welfare monstrosity with a 57-year history of collateral damage including families it was supposed to […]

The Politics of Confusion

A well-known line and popular meme from a popular movie read “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” In many ways, this line from the Princess Bride perfectly describes the politics of today.

Climate Folly

Proverbs 22:5 tells us: “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child, but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.” I am sure we have all experienced times with certain of our children when they wanted to do things that were foolish. Things like running into the street or standing by […]
