As we end 2010 and begin a new year, the media take a look back at the year gone by. We too wish to look back at all the stories this website has broken in the few months of our existence. Some have been ignored, others have been reported nationally — without credit to those of us who discovered them.

Tom Coburn, R-OK, has published his collection of the 100 … Read the Rest of this Post

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wants to get its grasping hands around the throat of the internet, the international town hall where Americans have been free to express their opinions without Big Brother’s permission or interference.

A series of federal regulatory measures has finally woken up the conservative movement to the dangers of Obama’s plan to rule by executive fiat. New regulations from the FCC, EPA, and HHS have tightened the feds’ grip around the internet, health insurance, and the energy industry. Net Neutrality, price fixing, and oversight of carbon dioxide as a “pollutant” — surely the only pollutant necessary for the continuation of life on earth — … Read the Rest of this Post
