From the team at CFACT ~ By Bill Kovacs: The apocalyptic talk about climate change is nothing more than a diversion tactic by the government, the radical Left, and their mainstream press.

The View From Mount Olympus

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Time flies. Mount Olympus has become hideaway retirement home for retired Greek gods. It’s not that they got old. They are, after all, immortal. Nah. They got hooked on Saturday Night Live, then realized the show was getting boring. The “real” world is much more laughable. More tragi-comedic, really. But the Greeks […]
