Clean Power — How Obama’s “Green Legacy” Will Shut Down the Economy

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with support from President Obama, is heading up a move that would make the cost of electricity skyrocket and do unprecedented damage to the economy. President Obama is supporting the EPA’s move as a part of his own plan to leave a “green legacy” when he leaves the White House.  The cost of Obama’s legacy to the country may be worth it to him, but to average Americans who already pay too much for electricity, the prospects of these new policies are frightening! According Read more […]

Will Mitch McConnell Help Save Coal?

The Senator is using his office to organize a resistance movement to save coal from the Environmental Protection Agency. The best part of this strategy is that Senator Mitch McConnell is appealing to states’ rights and sovereignty over against the overreaching grasp of the executive branch of the Federal Government. The New York Times reports, On Thursday, Mr. McConnell sent a detailed letter to every governor in the United States laying out a carefully researched legal argument as to why Read more […]

Global Warming Cred: Are Rockefellers Stupid or Frauds?

This is such transparent foolishness that I want to think the Rockefellers have to be following a crafty plan designed to fool people.  But it is hard to be certain. People deceive themselves and make stupid decisions all the time. Here’s how the New York Times begins their version of the story: John D. Rockefeller built a vast fortune on oil. Now his heirs are abandoning fossil fuels. The family whose legendary wealth flowed from Standard Oil is planning to announce on Monday that its Read more […]

Barack Obama to China, India: Please Slit Your Throats for Me

I can’t believe how stupid some people can be. The Washington Times headline is: “Obama pleas to China, India to forgo use of coal falls on deaf ears.” Their ears are not deaf! The problem is not their ears but the fact that they have functional brains and a healthy desire to thrive. They don’t want to impoverish themselves so that a few liberals can boast nonsense about “saving the planet.” Coal may have played an integral role in turning the U.S. into the world’s top economic superpower, Read more […]

Is Barack Obama Doing Pretend Environmentalism?

I pointed out yesterday that Barack Obama is siding with one industry over another in his new EPA proposals. However, it is possible that all of this is fakery. Think about it. Despite the environmentalist accusations against fracking, Obama claimed natural gas as a clean source of energy along with all the others. Unlike solar energy and wind farms, natural gas is a truly competitive form of energy. It is already being used to meet energy needs, and really has no need for subsidies or other help Read more […]

Obama Favors One Industry Over Another: That is Corruption, not Environmentalism

So the news is out that Obama is going to destroy one industry and “stimulate” another. This act of aggression is being treated as a heroic act rather than a criminal one. Here’s Bloomberg’s version of the story: “Obama Climate Proposal Will Shift Industry Foundations.” Coal-dependent power companies from American Electric Power Co. (AEP) to Duke Energy Corp. (DUK) face billions of dollars in added costs from the Obama administration’s proposed climate rules. Renewable-energy backers Read more […]

EPA’s Christmas Gift to the Nation: 134 More Regulations

It is not like we can punish Obama at the polls for what he is doing. So naturally he is unleashing his reavers on the countryside. By “reavers” I mean, of course, the Environmental Protection Racket Agency. The Daily Caller reports: On Tuesday, the White House released its regulatory agenda for the fall of 2013. It lists hundreds of pending energy and environmental regulations being crafting by executive branch agencies, including 134 regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency alone. The Read more […]

The Media Want to Hide the Obama Slump

People don’t invest in future growth if they expect failure.Of course, an economy cannot be run only on positive sentiment, but that is still definitely a part of the picture. And today’s stock rally after the debate last night gives us a hint about how Obama-pessimism has been affecting the markets. Up until last night, virtually everything in the mainstream media told us that Romney was losing and Obama was winning. More than that, the media made it seem as if Romney couldn’t campaign Read more […]
