Curbing Obama power grabs

The courts and Senate provide no checks and balances. Could a Republican Senate help? You’ve got to admire the sheer audacity: Democratic Senator Mark Begich telling Alaska voters that he stood up to President Obama and fought for oil drilling and jobs in his state.

We need some regulatory patriotism!

President Obama condemns tax inversions, but pillages America with his regulatory agenda “My policies are on the ballot, every single one of them,” he reminded voters on October 2.

RFK, Jr. wants me jailed … as a war criminal!

Perhaps he should serve time for eco-manslaughter and crimes against humanity? The “people’s climate march” was notable for the amazing energy, economic and climate illiteracy displayed by the mostly young people parading along New York City streets September 21. Their chants, rants and placards demanded that we stop climate change (that’s been ongoing throughout Earth […]

What really drives anti-fracking zealots?

  They want to end fossil fuels and capitalism, control our lives and impose eco-utopia. Recent news stories underscore the tremendous benefits brought by America’s fracking revolution. * The shale oil production boom could boost US crude production to 9.5 million barrels of oil per day (bopd) next year, reducing America’s crude oil imports to […]

EPA’s phony “environmental justice”

  The agency’s real agenda: empire, control, and inverted justice for poor and minority families Paul Driessen When it comes to energy, climate change, justice and transparency, the Obama Administration and its Environmental Protection Agency want it every possible way.

  The president fails to prepare for anything, except vacation, golf and climate change.  Four news stories in four days sum up the Obama presidency and help explain why the world and U.S. economy are in such a mess.

Trampling on Coal Country families

  Obama and EPA are determined to destroy US coal, people’s lives and welfare be damned. Between 1989 and 2010, Congress rejected nearly 700 cap-tax-and-trade and similar bills that their proponents claimed would control Earth’s perpetually fickle climate and weather. So even as real world crises erupt, President Obama is using executive fiats and regulations […]

“Climate-smart” policies for Africa are stupid, and immoral

The US-Africa Leaders Summit is ending, with many interesting observations about the continent’s future – the most memorable of which might be Secretary of State John Kerry’s suggestion that African nations should practice “climate-smart” agriculture … to accompany the Obama Administration’s determination that they also practice “climate-smart” electricity generation. In the real world, this would […]
