Obama’s hype exposed; Gulf oil spill good for fish

November 17, 2010 by

1

By Andrew Bolt President Barack Obama mercilessly hyped the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico: Already, this oil spill is the worst environmental disaster America has ever faced.  And unlike an earthquake or a hurricane, it’s not a single event that does its damage in a matter of minutes or days.  The millions […]

Throw Carol Browner Under the Bus

November 13, 2010 by

By Michelle Malkin Energy czar Carol Browner needs to go the way of disgraced green jobs czar Van Jones: under the bus and stripped of her unbridled power to destroy jobs and lives in the name of saving the planet. ASAP. One of the Beltway’s most influential, entrenched and unaccountable left-wing radicals, Browner has now […]

By Nicolas Loris In the midst of a crisis in the Gulf, some Senators are making a final push to pass energy and climate legislation this year. Senators John Kerry (D–MA) and Joe Lieberman (I–CT) are introducing a scaled-back version of their original cap-and-trade bill but still want to maintain a carbon cap. Senate Majority […]

Reaching Honest Answers On The Oil Spill

July 4, 2010 by

2

By Nicolas Loris Since President Obama took office, there has been very little wiggle room for Members of Congress to reach a bipartisan agreement. This week the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee granted the President’s push for bipartisanship, ironically by creating a bipartisan oil spill commission that would compete with the Administration’s Obama-appointed one. […]

Giant Cleanup Ship Met With Puny Response From Bureaucrats

June 29, 2010 by

0

By Ernest Istook After our government claimed that we did not need or could not obtain larger ships to skim the Gulf oil spill, a giant-capacity skimming ship has arrived in U.S. waters.  Yet our government has us wondering whether it will permit the ship to join the cleanup effort. The problem is not simply […]

Why Wasn’t BP Better Prepared? The Government

June 25, 2010 by

0

By Nicolas Loris. One of the reoccurring questions surrounding the Gulf oil spill is why there wasn’t better technology in place to cap the leak and contain the slick. Although the rigs are equipped with a blowout preventer, which failed, many are wondering why other preventative mechanisms were not readily available. Technologies that typically take […]

Feds Continue To Block Oil Spill Cleanup

June 24, 2010 by

By Nicolas Loris. If there were ever a time to pull out the Ronald Reagan quote “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help,” it would be here and now with this oil spill. Either no one’s in charge or everyone is. Either way, […]

Golfing Obama Whacks Yachting Hayward

By Andrew Bolt. A shocking look: BP chief Tony Hayward is at the centre of another PR debacle after watching his yacht at a prestigious race around the Isle of Wight. Barack Obama’s spokesman is scathing: White House chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel told the US ABC News it was the latest in “a long line of […]

BP And The Unmitigated Disaster

June 20, 2010 by

By Alan Caruba.

$7-A-Gallon Gas?

June 19, 2010 by

0

By Ben Lieberman. President Obama has a solution to the Gulf oil spill: $7-a-gallon gas. That’s a Harvard University study’s estimate of the per-gallon price of the president’s global-warming agenda. And Obama made clear this week that this agenda is a part of his plan for addressing the Gulf mess. So what does global-warming legislation […]

Shut Up, Barack!

June 17, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba Does anyone recall the first weeks of Barack Obama’s presidency? He was everywhere on the media all the time. His constant use of TelePrompters became an instant joke, suggesting he could not say anything unless it was scripted. Indeed, listening to him try to speak without them is a painful process of […]

No Trickle Up His Leg This Time

June 16, 2010 by

By Andrew Bolt. When Obama’s address to the nation on the oil spill disappoints even MSNBC…. TonyfromOz adds….. For someone who has always waxed so lyrically about anything to do with the President, he doesn’t seem so pleased this time. Andrew Bolt is a journalist and columnist writing for The Herald Sun in Melbourne Victoria […]

Clean Energy Future Just A ‘Red Herring’

June 16, 2010 by

1

In the typical manner of a Politician never allowing a crisis to be wasted, The President again pushed his talk of ‘A Clean Energy Future’, and his support for Carbon Cap And Trade Legislation. Senator Kerry also came out yesterday and said that any cost you pay as a household is well worth it if […]

It Doesn’t Matter What Obama Says About The Oil Spill

June 15, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba. It doesn’t matter what President Obama says from the Oval Office Tuesday evening. He can lay out all manner of things that BP must do in the wake of what is shaping up to be a major ecological disaster, but he and Congress are also working to put a cap on BP’s […]

Obama Walks On Oil

June 13, 2010 by

0

By Andrew Bolt. Obama has flapped around while an oil slick eight times greater than than of the Exxon Valdez laps his country’s coast. But, as so often, the green groups defend a side rather than a principle: As the greatest environmental catastrophe in U.S. history has played out on Obama’s watch, the environmental movement […]

By Alan Caruba. On Thursday, the Senate will vote on S.J. Resolution 26. It is an effort to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating “greenhouse gas emissions” without any legislative accountability.

BP, PR, And The Oil Spill

June 8, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba. I have plied the magic arts of public relations since I left journalism in the late 1960s. There was no difficulty making the transition. PR is a form of journalism insofar as it packages information, but it adds the element of advocacy. The objective is the maintenance and protection of a good […]

“Oil Addiction” Lies

June 7, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba. Next to the huge international hoax about global warming allegedly caused by carbon dioxide, the biggest lie being told to Americans these days is that we are “addicted” to oil and that we must convert our economy and society away from its use. The first time I recall hearing this was during […]

The Chasm Between Apollo And The Gulf

June 4, 2010 by

0

By Harrison H. Schmitt. President Obama’s Administration and its supportive media repeatedly say our 1970 Apollo 13 experience is analogous to the effort to contain and cap the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Not hardly! The rescue of Astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert, after an oxygen tank explosion […]
