  3. Civil Forfeiture – Illegal Theft (7/12/2016) by Susan Steffen-Kraft - Civil forfeiture is a process by which the government can take and sell your property without ever convicting, or even charging, you with a crime and that leads to one of the greatest threats to property rights in the nation today. Civil forfeiture is a legal bunch of fiction that tries inanimate objects for their involvement […]
  4. The Man – Making a Case for Better Police Pay (7/12/2016) by Rich Loudenback - Most people take police for granted and give little thought to the fantastic ‘value’ they are for our taxpayer dollars. Because, inside that symbolic uniform is a multi-talented individual that must ‘perform’ daily to impeccable standards and unfortunately for a pittance compared to his worth. Incidentally, let me digress a moment. If a female officer […]

The President chided the many members of […]

  8. Justice Delayed on Lawsuit over Water Compact? (7/10/2016) by Elaine D. Willman, MPA - Below is a letter-to-editor that I wrote regarding a long-overdue court ruling on the legality of the Montana Legislature’s vote approving the CSKT Water Compact. The State legislature voted on April 11, 2005 by simple majority, instead of a State Constitutional requirement of a two-thirds majority vote. We’ve all been waiting a long time for […]
  9. Why Obama’s Two Terms of Hope and Change will end in more Racism (7/9/2016) by Bob "Nugie" Neugebauer - As our nation mourns the death of five Dallas Police Officers, many of us think back to 2008 when President Obama was elected on a slogan of “Hope and Change” when many of those who voted for him expected great things of the first black president. They thought this was a chance to bring the […]

(7/7/2016) by Karen Schumacher - Multiple non-governmental organizations (NGO), also known as non-profits, promote United Nations (UN) goals and objectives and they have been very successful at it.

  13. Open Letter to Dick Armstrong Director of Idaho Health & Welfare (7/4/2016) by Bob "Nugie" Neugebauer - Mr. Armstrong, you are just another of the crony bureaucrats who want to expand big government and the budget of the Dept. of Health and Welfare. I have yet to hear you stand up and complain about the continuing accelerating cost of medical care or the huge escalations of premiums for health insurance. Instead you […]
  14. The Fix is in for Hillary (7/4/2016) by Bob "Nugie" Neugebauer - What is it about the Clintons that they are always one step ahead of the law?

  15. Attempts by Media to cover up Twin Falls Refugee Problems tells us ‘Journalism is Dead’ (7/4/2016) by Bob "Nugie" Neugebauer - The establishment media is bought and paid for by the corporate lobbyists and establishment politicians.

It was almost as if everyone wanted to cover […]

  17. Media Muppets Fail to get Gun Facts Straight ‘Again’ (7/3/2016) by Bob "Nugie" Neugebauer - In a feeble attempt to be funny, the Mistakesman once again prints a Lewiston Tribune article on Idaho’s changing gun market Page 2C Opinion 7/2/2016. They attempted to berate the fact that our legislators finally listened to the people of Idaho and not the “Muppet Media” by passing legislation this year allowing permit-less carrying of […]
