Global Warming: Will Greens sacrifice “Sacred Cows”?

by Dennis T. Avery

All this big time science, international meetings, thick research papers, dire threats for the future; all of it, comes down to their claim that the carbon dioxide in the exhaust from your car and in the smoke stacks from our power plants is destroying the climate of planet Earth. What an amazing fraud; what a scam.

Hawaiian Homes: Time for Change

by Sam Slom

On June 5, 2008, the state Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) announced it would front $90 million to the state Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) over the next 30 years in what was described as “a historic partnership,” uniting state land with state (taxpayer) money.

The funding would permit DHHL to deliver up to 500 residential house lots-nearly double the current rate- to Native Hawaiians hungering for a home of their own. Some state leaders were ecstatic calling this a “bold step.”

But is it?
