Did You Know About Hick’s Time Machine?

Posted by on Sep 15 2014 | Capitol Crazies, guns, Video

So apparently Governor Hickenlooper owns a functioning time machine and the mainstream media is choosing not to report on this miracle of modern science.

Well, either he has a time machine or he is lying about talking to former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg. I’ll leave it up to you fine folks to figure out which it is.

Below you’ll find our latest IITV segment (just over 2 minutes long) titled, Governor Hickenlooper Has a Time Machine.

New Hampshire Delivers Good News for School Choice

Posted by on Aug 28 2014 | education, Video

Our latest IITV episode:

Education Policy Center director Pam Benigno talks with Ben DeGrow about good news for educational freedom. The New Hampshire Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling limiting families’ choices by saying they could only use tax credit scholarships to help pay for a certain kind of private school. Another favorable judicial ruling in one of the 14 states with scholarship tax credit programs gives momentum to support for a similar program that could expand choice in Colorado.

Introducing… Independence Institute Television (IITV)

Posted by on Aug 18 2014 | U.S. Constitution, Video

You may or may not have known that the Independence Institute has had a podcast for years called Independent Voices (iVoices for short). Over the past 6 or so years we have amassed almost 700 podcasts ranging from transportation to education to gun rights to women’s issues. You can visit our iVoices webpage here for a full archive.

However it is now 2014 and if you hadn’t noticed yet, videos on the Internet are kind of a big deal. (Just peruse your Facebook feed for 5 seconds and you’ll come across 10 cat videos and 3 guys hitting themselves in the junk with a Wiffle ball bat).

In order to get with the times, we built a video cast studio in our building and will start doing video casts rather than podcasts – meaning you’ll be forced to both hear AND see us. That’s great news when one of our ladies is in the studio. That’s bad news when it’s yours truly in high definition.

We figured we’d announce the launching of IITV with none other than our leading constitutional scholar Rob Natelson. In this first edition of IITV, Rob introduces himself, his work, and discusses his approach to researching the Founding era.

Please check back to our YouTube channel to catch the latest from the Independence Institute… in full high definition video!
