Obama’s Revenge

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, […]

The Lies Phony Climate Experts Tell

  For decades now both the U.S. and Europe have suffered the arrogance and the lies of so-called “climate experts.” Mind you, there are some real ones and, when it comes to global warming and climate change, the interchangeable names for the lies, they are the ones labeled “deniers” and worse for telling the truth.

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.

Is America in Decline?

  In case you have had the feeling that America is in decline and will make way for a new superpower, you may be right. At least you’re right if you agree with James MacDonald, the author of “When Globalization Fails: The Rise and Fall of Pax Americana” (due in January 2015, Farrar, Straus and […]

Principled Coburn’s Departure a Loss to Senate

  As the end of the year approaches you’re going to be hearing both Democrats and Republicans lavish extravagant, bipartisan praise on Sen. Tom Coburn, R-OK, a man formerly known unfondly as “Dr. No.” Why the change of heart? Coburn’s leaving the Senate this term and leftist Democrats and RINO Republicans will be free to […]

Obama’s Amnesty Travesty

People really need to read the U.S. Constitution. It says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” The Constitution makes no reference whatever to executive orders (EO). George Washington started the practice mostly because he had to. Traditionally executive orders have been treated by Congress as having […]

Obama’s War on U.S. Energy

  September 19th was an anniversary you did not read or hear about in the nation’s news media. It marked six years—2008—since the first permit application for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline was submitted to the federal government.

It’s rarely about the environment anymore

  It’s about slashing our energy use, free enterprise, job creation, living standards and freedoms. Back in 1970, when I got involved in the first Earth Day and nascent environmental movement, we had real pollution problems. But over time, new laws, regulations, attitudes and technologies cleaned up our air, water and sloppy industry practices. By […]

Ebola! Ebola! Yawn

How is Ebola spread? Two ways; one, by letting anyone exposed to it in West Africa into America when they fly here and, two, by assuming that medical professionals and others who have been exposed to it would quarantine themselves from contact with others once they are here. The latest case is Dr. Craig Spencer, […]
