The resurrection of McCarthyism

In the 1950s, the late, and now infamous, Senator Joseph McCarthy used the fear of communism to gain national recognition by making reckless charges against a wide array of public figures, the film industry, a war hero, and the President of the United States. In the end, his reckless disregard for facts, evidence, common decency, […]

Exposing the Fraud

The Steyer Next Gen Climate campaign is built on a misleading foundation that uses climate change to mask an extreme environmental objective that is its anti-fossil fuel agenda.

Its authors made the case that there are no compelling scientific arguments support the calls made by activists and politicians for drastic action […]
