Cut Off The Oxygen

By Art Hyland

Our president recently and publicly singing the words to Amazing Grace doesn’t make him the Christian he claims to be any more than those of the oath of office made him want to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Words are his means to power. Period. And

Left’s Gifts to Language

By Art Hyland

The chic, Leftist media and political elites have slowly dominated, transformed and debased the Judeo-Christian freedom culture that created and sustained the United States for 225 years. What was isn’t anymore, and what is now isn’t what we think it is either. That’s because the secular/socialist/distributive movement has gradually distorted and replaced

AstroPhysicist TKOs Portland, OR Warmists

Shangri La

By Art Hyland The following is how we need to combat the idiots and global warming zealots (but I repeat myself). Here in the Northwest where there’s limited sunshine but lots of hydro power, environmentalists are tearing out electricity-producing dams and subsidizing solar power. Only government could be this irrational. – – Ed Comments re:

By Art Hyland

“. . .anything that can be described can be presented as if it happened because, well, it could have happened, and that’s all that matters.

Global Warming, Global Schooling and Governor CO2

CroMagnon man

By Art Hyland

[Although this is about Washington State, it’s next to Oregon and frankly the two states are like peas in a pod, they think so much alike they might as well combine in order to look even more like California.]

The governor of the State of Washington lives on a hill in a

The Shrill is Gone


By Luke Hamilton It is never too early to start planning the completion of a communist coup. We are only midway through Dear Leader’s second term, but the Demokrat primary for the 2016 Presidential election is beginning to take shape.

“Star Trek is where most liberals live in their minds.”

Oregon’s Czar for All Seasons


By Art Hyland

Democrats were ecstatic in 2010 when they learned that ex-Governor Kitzhaber was still willing to run for office again. No reason to vet someone with his liberal experience and history. It was basically anyone but a Republican, something of a mantra in Oregon politics. But it seems that Oregon has
