Obama’s Not the Only Democrat Hearing Voices

Obama’s Not the Only Democrat Hearing Voices

Letting voters that don’t vote set your political agenda is so liberating I’m surprised politicians didn’t think of it years ago.

Obama Declares an Amnesty War

  The same mindset that could conspire to foist ObamaCare on Americans by deception is at work to do the same thing with an unconstitutional, unilateral announcement of amnesty for millions of illegal—oops, “undocumented”—aliens living in America.

Looming Environmental Protection Agency ozone regulations personify the Obama administration’s secrecy, collusion, fraud, and disdain for concerns about the effects that its tsunami of regulations is having on the livelihoods, living standards, health and welfare of millions of American families. Virtually […]

Obama’s Cruel and Costly Climate Hoax

  The intense cold that many Americans are encountering arrives more than a month before the official start of winter on December 2l.

The Obama war on pipelines

Expedite wind and solar – but block coal, oil, gas, pipelines, jobs and economic recovery. “This is not the same industry we had 15 years ago,” Natural Gas Supply Association VP Jennifer Fordham said recently. That’s an understatement. The oil, petrochemical and manufacturing industries are also far different from those of 15 years ago. Together, […]

RI flooding not WV’s fault

| November 1, 2014

By Tom Harris & Bob Carter Whitehouse is misguided on sea level rise: seacoasts won’t be flooded due to coal burning. It must have taken the patience of Job for West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin to participate in Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse’s climate change tour of the Ocean State on October 10.

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. Maybe he had a few chats. But he certainly knew […]
