July 31, 2021 by

1

By Fred Lucas ~ President Joe Biden touts the support of the business community for his COVID-19 vaccine policy, but leaders of organized labor, which the president identifies as his political base, aren’t happy.

From the team at CFACT ~ BY JONATHAN LESSER: A few days before the Indian Point nuclear plant was permanently shuttered on April 30 of this year, I warned New Yorkers to prepare for power outages this summer.  The plant had provided one-fourth of NYC’s electricity.  Shutting it down created a cavernous hole in electricity […]

Green Energy Deficits Rely On Political Power Plays

July 25, 2021 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ So, maybe some of you seriously imagine that America is really going to successfully implement a Green New Dementia model of switching from recently achieved fossil-fueled energy independence (80% of U.S. supply) to planet-climate-saving windmills and sunbeams (that intermittently produce 3% or less)? Then, in addition, we’re going to replace 98% […]

Congress, Don’t Let Liberals Shoehorn Harmful Energy Policies Into Budget And Infrastructure Bills

July 22, 2021 by

2

By Katie Tubb ~ President Joe Biden has made it the policy of his administration to decarbonize the electricity sector fully by 2035 and to reach economy-wide net zero emissions by 2050. The trouble is, it’s very hard for a president to unilaterally require hundreds of millions of American businesses, industries, and energy users to […]

Another Biden Administration Eco-Con

July 17, 2021 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Via yet another decree (Executive Order 14008), President Biden has instructed government agencies to “permanently protect” at least 30% of all US lands and waters by 2030. This “30 X 30 Plan” appears to presume that any areas not designated as park, refuge or wilderness are not “protected,” even though the […]

July 13, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ David Rutz at Fox News reported that liberal Russian-born American journalist Julia Ioffe offered an inside look at liberal-media frustration at being so carefully managed by Team Biden.

July 13, 2021 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ Buried in the depths of the Democrats’ proposed “Infrastructure Bill,” which is currently being negotiated with GOP congressional leadership is a $213 billion item — nearly twice the amount earmarked for roads and bridges — that will essentially put the federal government in charge of rezoning single-family homes out of your neighborhood. The plan, if […]

REAL Threats To Planet And People

July 7, 2021 by

By Paul Driessen ~ Environmental activism was already nasty and lethal when I wrote Eco-Imperialism: Green Power – Black Death 18 years ago. It’s gotten steadily worse since then, especially with hysteria about the “looming manmade climate apocalypse” driving ever more extreme demands that we rid the world of fossil fuels and prohibit or roll […]

AOC’s CCC Isn’t FDR’s CCC

July 2, 2021 by

1

By Thomas Gallatin ~ Her $70 billion Civilian Climate Corps would be an army of well-paid climate activists. They may share the same initials, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Civilian Climate Corps” is no Great Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps. The Bronx representative and her Green New Deal pal, Massachusetts Democrat Senator Ed Markey, are pushing for $70 […]

June 28, 2021 by

5

By Clay Waters ~ A front-page story from Sunday’s New York Times, “Biden’s Push for Racial Equity Hits Legal and Political Snags,” opened and closed with affecting stories of hardship under sympathetic headlines.

June 25, 2021 by

1

By Adam Houser ~ “To answer the direct question: We have a deal.” Those were President Biden’s words as he announced a new bipartisan agreement on a potential infrastructure bill at the White House.

Green Mania Hits The Wall Of Nothingness

June 24, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ It is now clear that none of Biden’s radical green promises are going to be kept. More broadly the wild green fantasies are going nowhere. There will be some action, but nothing much. None, nowhere, nothing much — welcome to the wall of nothingness. I for one am celebrating it, […]

Regifting The Nuclear Bailout

June 23, 2021 by

1

By Katie Tubb ~ Americans across the political spectrum didn’t take it well in 2018 when the Department of Energy tried to coerce them into buying electricity from nuclear power plants under its infamous attempt to bail out coal and nuclear power plants. Americans shouldn’t take it if Congress tries to, either. Noting how politically […]

0

By Frederico Bartels and Kaitlyn Romaine ~ When the Office of Management and Budget released its 2022 budget request, President Joe Biden stated, “Where we choose to invest speaks to what we value as a Nation.” On that basis, the Biden administration does not value United States armed forces. Biden’s budget reflects more interest in […]

Biden Administration Is Forcing The Navy To Make A False Choice

June 15, 2021 by

1

By Brent Sadler ~ The executive branch showers the federal government with easy money.

June 12, 2021 by

3

By Larry Bell ~ Feckless far-left fantasies of trading away the 80% of American fossil-fueled energy independence and prosperity for technologies that are 80% dependent on China rare earth materials makes for a gullible green new deal that only Beijing beneficiaries can love. Included are 17 indispensable metals including lithium, that will be needed to […]
