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. Richard Nixon used to refer to the “silent majority” when he was beleaguered and isolated in the White House. (This was during the dark days when a rogue IRS investigated and persecuted political groups […]

Obama’s Revenge

  The Democratic Party that supported President Obama’s agenda for the past six years was dramatically rejected in the midterm elections and the message for the new Republican-controlled Senate and House is to aggressively take action on stalled legislation to improve the economy and address other issues that have suffered neglect. The GOP is going […]

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, […]

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. Can you imagine how many jobs its construction would have created during a period of […]

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 […]

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. It’s no mystery why American companies have stockpiled over $2 trillion of overseas earnings in foreign bank accounts. If they bring it to the United States, […]

President Ebola

  What does it tell you when Britain and France have stopped flights to and from the nations in Africa where Ebola has become a threat and the United States has not taken a similar measure? What does it tell you when the President sends 3,000 U.S. troops on a “humanitarian” mission to West Africa? […]

Obama’s Ignorance

  From time to time I hear President Obama described as “an evil genius”, but he is neither. He’s not evil. He’s something much worse. He is a fool who thinks he’s a genius. This is not about his intelligence. No one gets to be President of the United States without some degree of intelligence. […]
