  • Residents’ Opposition Puts a Lid on Edina Pols’ Pet Project

    Edina citizens finally got the city not to put a lid on it. But apparently it took the potential threat to job security that comes on November 6 to convince the Edina City Council to kill an exorbitant, unpopular development project called “the lid.” The project’s obituary was written up in the Star Tribune. The Edina City Council wants to make one thing clear: Construction of a proposed massive land bridge over Hwy. 100 near City Hall will not be happening anytime soon. At a Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) meeting last week, council members agreed to stop spending money...

  • Will Global Warming Destroy Us All? Probably Not

    We often hear that global warming will eventually be the end to all of us. The message is pervasive, and it has been trumpeted again by a newly-released report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC. While renewable energy advocates, anti-pipeline activists, and others attempt to use global warming as a “trump card,” when lobbying for government policies and mandates for their preferred sources of energy, its important to look at whether these claims are supported by the scientific evidence, especially as President Trump has removed the United States from the Paris Climate Accord (not a treaty), and...

  • For our economic health, Minnesota must cut tax burdens

    Minnesota's economic growth has been lackluster so far this century. We have a hard-working labor force but low productivity. We need lower taxes that will retain and entice productive workers and incentivize innovation and investment. Only then will working Minnesotans start to see the returns their efforts ought to generate.


  • Join Us for Pro-Mining Rallies Next Week in Duluth and Hibbing

    Residents on the Iron Range have important decisions to make about the economic future of their region. That’s why two rallies to demonstrate public support for the environmentally responsible mining of Minnesota’s mineral resources will be held in Duluth on October 22 and in Hibbing on October 23. Minnesota has some of the largest deposits of copper, nickel, platinum, and titanium in the world. Developing these resources would create 8,500 jobs and $3.7 billion dollars in economic output every year, according to a recent American Experiment report. Speakers will focus on the vast economic benefits mining could bring to the region...

  • Minnesota Ranked As Least Tax-Friendly State In US

    Minnesota's high tax rates are negatively impacting our state's economic growth and standard of living. As the Kiplinger report makes clear, we need a change of direction. 

  • MN Judge Does A Disservice To All Minnesotans By Letting Pipeline Protesters Off the Hook

    On October 11, 2016, three pipeline protesters from Seattle, Annette Klapstein, Emily Johnston, and Ben Joldersma, disguised as safety workers scaled a chain-link fence and used bolt cutters to unlock the shut-off valves on the Enbridge lines 4 and 67, which carry millions of gallons of oil daily across Minnesota from western Canada. The anti-pipeline activists faced felony charges that could result in up to 10 years in prison, that is, until Judge Robert Tiffany  granted the protesters’ motion to dismiss the case. The ruling comes as a shock, even to the protesters themselves. However, by dismissing this case, Judge Tiffany did...

  • More Birds Are Getting Drunk This Year, MN Town Advises Residents

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The northeastern Minnesota town of Gilbert is alerting residents that birds may be a bit more “tipsy” than normal this time of year. According to Gilbert police, its received numerous reports of what look to be drunk birds “flying into windows, cars and acting confused.” Police say the reason behind this is the fact that certain berries in the area have fermented earlier than usual due to an early frost. That, plus the fact that many birds have yet to migrate south, means more birds are feeling the effects than in past years. Also, younger birds’ livers cannot...
