Pride in America:  Charles Murray

By Ronald M. Nate, Ph.D.
June 30, 2023
A scholar and a fearless warrior It is audacious in today’s world for a scholar, researcher, and scientist to criticize social policies meant to help the poor and disadvantaged.

By Fred Birnbaum

On July 10th, the Legislature’s Medicaid Managed Care Task will hold its second meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to review the Sellers Dorsey report on, “State of Idaho, Division of Purchasing, Medicaid Cost Containment.”  While I encourage everyone interested in Medicaid policy to read the report, I will suggest that you keep a […]

Pride in America: H.L. Mencken

By Wayne Hoffman
June 29, 2023
One of my favorite journalists is a fellow by the name of H.L. Mencken. Famous for some of his witticisms, Mencken has, of course, been of late criticized by leftists who contend he’s a racist. But that’s a misinterpretation of the life of a man who grew up in the 19th century and witnessed the […]

No to drug legalization, instead reform the laws

By Wayne Hoffman
June 27, 2023
Not a week goes by that someone doesn’t ask me my opinion about legalizing marijuana, and I haven’t wanted to address the question because it’s not something the Idaho Freedom Foundation spends its time on. I’ve also thought it wasn’t necessary, since our organization’s record is clear. But alas, a couple of weeks ago, as […]

In the classic movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the main character, George Bailey, gets a glimpse of how his community would have fared had he never been born.  The experience is […]

University of Idaho officials didn’t quite tell lawmakers or the public the whole story about the decision to change the name of the school's new nonprofit organization, which plans to buy the University of Phoenix. U of I President Scott Green and general counsel Kent Nelson made it sound as if the school had just […]
