Caveman blogger fights for free speech and Internet freedom

Far too many "activists," elected officials, judges, government offices, bureaus, programs, departments and bureaucrats think it's their job to police your freedom of speech. Especially your online speech:



Cooksey explains:
Can the government throw you in jail for offering advice on the Internet about what food people should buy at the grocery store?

That is exactly the claim made by the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition. In December 2011, diabetic blogger Steve Cooksey started a Dear Abby-style advice column on his popular blog (http://www.diabetes-warrior.net/) to answer reader questions. One month later, the State Board informed Steve that he could not give readers advice on diet, whether for free or for compensation, because doing so constituted the unlicensed, and thus criminal, practice of dietetics. The State Board also told Steve that his private emails and telephone calls with readers and friends were illegal, as was his paid life-coaching service. The State Board went through Steve's writings with a red pen, indicating what he may and may not say without a government-issued license.

But the First Amendment does not allow the government to ban people from sharing ordinary advice about diet, or scrub the Internet—from blogs to Facebook to Twitter—of speech the government does not like. North Carolina can no more force Steve to become a licensed dietitian than it could require Dear Abby to become a licensed psychologist.

That is why on May 30, 2012, Steve Cooksey joined the Institute for Justice in filing a major free speech lawsuit against the State Board in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, Charlotte Division. This lawsuit seeks to answer one of the most important unresolved questions in First Amendment law: When does the government's power to license occupations trump free speech?
More information about this case is offered at The Institute for Justice. Interesting commentary on this case and our First Amendment right to freedom of speech without government interference is also offered by law.com. The Blaze also posted their take on the story here.

Planned Parenthood's quiet 'War on Women'

Many on the US political left are prattling on about an imaginary "War on Women" these days. But did you know that Planned Parenthood is quietly carrying out "gendercide" - the elimination of female babies by sex-selected abortion.

Although this heinous practice is known to be widespread in repressive, communist regimes like China, Planned Parenthood affiliate clinics throughout the United States are also engaging in this very real war:



Ed Morrissey at Hot Air reports that the Planned Parenthood employee in this video has since been fired. Apparently the murder of female preborn babies continues unhindered.

Krugman - Lie to Americans so government can spend more

Paul Krugman epitomizes leftist "thought" in America today. And he's rewarded for his mindless "thinking" with a job as professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, and by having a New York Times column that only brain-dead liberals actually read. Inexplicably, Krugman was the 2008 Nobel Prize for economic sciences.

Watch as nerdy, socially-awkward Krugman delivers his honestly dishonest remarks on Bill Maher's televised leftist hate forum:



Like most con men and liars, Krugman speaks very quickly. Just in case you don't catch all of his words, here is what he says:
This is hard to get people to do, much better, obviously, to build bridges and roads and healthcare clinics and schools. But my proposed, I actually have a serious proposal which is that we have to get a bunch of scientists to tell us that we're facing a threatened alien invasion, and in order to be prepared for that alien invasion we have to do things like build high-speed rail. And then, once we've recovered, we can say, 'Look, there were no aliens.'
But look, I mean, whatever it takes, because right now we need somebody to spend, and that somebody has to be the U.S. government.
So a Nobel laureate economist makes a "serious proposal" that some unnamed group of presumedly-real scientists intentionlly lie to the American people about something as absurd as an alien invasion? And this for the purpose of stealing more of their money to funnel through the Federal government, and then redistribute, ostensibly via another fraud-packed "stimulus"? This scheme is deserving of all the ridicule informed citizens can heap upon Krugman and anyone who supports his dishonest lunacy.

Oh, wait. Global-warmists are already using Krugman's suggested tactic: Lie about some impending disaster in order to get the Federal government to spend more of your money.

Also, super-brainy economist Krugman has apparently never seen this.

Note Krugman's predictable "ends justifies the means" approach. "Whatever it takes." This is how leftist tyrants think: "Whatever it takes" to fool or force you into doing their bidding. Why? Because they're a lot smarter than you, and they firmly believe that they have the right - even the moral obligation - to tell you what to do.

We disagree.

Who is Brett Kimberlin? (Part 1)

We post this with gratitude to our very talented friend Lee Stranahan for this well-produced video. Meet Brett Kimberlin - convicted drug dealer and bomber, turned leftist "activist."



Kimberlin is getting much more than 15 minutes of fame, but exposing evil usually forces it into retreat.

Noam Chomsky - Sarah Palin was right about Obama

Noam Chomsky has been a hero to anti-American leftists for decades. Norman G. Finkelstein, an obscure, anti-American leftist with a web site, praises Chomsky as "America's greatest intellectual."

But Chomsky made a surprising admission during a recent television interview with Democracy Now!* "I don’t usually admire Sarah Palin, but when she was making fun of this 'hopey changey' stuff, she was right, there was nothing there."

We don't generally recommend listening to Chomsky, because he's an ├╝ber intellectual who detests America and all things normal. But play the clip below, just for the satisfaction of hearing him say Sarah Palin was right:



So there you have it, from the left's most profound thinker: President Barack Hussein Obama is a vacuous, callow youth, with absolutely nothing to say of any substance whatsoever. Well said, Professor Chomsky.

*Democracy Now! is a socialist organization that publishes interviews with the likes of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, terrorist friends of Barack Hussein Obama. They also produce shows on topics like Occupy Wall Street and Gay Rights (both up-twinkles), and Guantanamo (down-twimkles).

Vote fraud is alive and well

Conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe has just released the fifth in a series of video reports exposing vote fraud. His focus in this edition is North Carolina, where state lawmakers are prepared to ingnore the issue altogether:

It's obvious that American elections are in serious danger of corruption beyond remedy. But influential people like Michelle Malkin are taking notice of the impact O'Keefe and Project Veritas are having.
