Jim Jones fails in his attempt to defend critical race theory

By Bryan Hyde
October 12, 2022
The educational presentation that former Idaho attorney general Jim Jones gave in Twin Falls last Wednesday didn’t quite live up to its stated goal of defining and understanding critical race theory. If his lecture was a firework, it was like a pack of sparklers.  Jones covered various definitions of CRT and offered some historical context […]

By Fred Birnbaum
October 6, 2022
When Bob Kustra attacks the Idaho Freedom Foundation and others on the “far-right,” I wish he would try harder.

Speaking truth to power or speaking what the powerful want to hear?

By Bryan Hyde
September 28, 2022
Most of us are familiar with the phrase “speaking truth to power.”  It refers to those individuals who feel a sense of duty to stand up when they see official wrongdoing and to speak the unpopular truth to those in power. It can be a heroic thing to do, but that doesn’t mean it’s an […]

September 16, 2022
A man is walking down the street when a thug confronts him with a gun and says, “Gimme your wallet!”  Such theft is a crime. Nobody deserves to fear for their life and property this way.  But what if the man is confronted by a posse of five gun-wielding thugs?  Clearly, that’s no better and […]
