July 7, 2016 by


By Nicolas Loris ~ Since Congress lifted the long-standing ban on crude oil exports, U.S. companies are taking advantage and Americans are reaping the benefits. This example shows how free market reforms can transform the energy sector and provide a massive boon to consumers. In June, CNN reported that the U.S. reached a sevenfold increase […]

May 31, 2013 by


By Nicolas Loris ~ Last week, the House of Representatives passed the Northern Route Approval Act, introduced by Representative Lee Terry (R–NE), which would authorize the construction of Keystone XL Pipeline.

June 23, 2011 by


By Nicolas Loris Once delivering 2.1 million barrels of oil a day to the United States, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, one of the world’s largest pipeline systems, now carries about one-third of that. Although the pipeline collects oil from several fields, falling production in those fields could eventually cause the pipeline to shut down. If the […]

By Star Parker In August of 2005, Houston investment banker Matt Simmons predicted in a New York Times feature article that the price of oil, then $65/barrel, would soar.

By Noel Sheppard. Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Cynthia Tucker believes Americans are the enemy of the nation moving in a new energy direction because of what she called our addiction to oil.

Wrecking America

November 9, 2009 by


By Alan Caruba I am always wary of conspiracy theories. Most can be explained away as shared ideologies which, in the case of the current and recently past Congresses and White Houses, can be described as socialism. It did not and does not matter which Party was or is in power. The other explanation for […]

Energy ABCs: Playing Americans For Fools

November 8, 2009 by


By Alan Caruba I have long harbored strong doubts about the knowledge that most Americans possess regarding the sources of energy they largely take for granted. We flip a switch and the lights go on. We pull up to the gas pump and drive away. We use machines that are totally dependent on having enough […]

Obama’s Proposed Tax Increase On Energy Producers: A Formula For Failure

April 6, 2009 by


Alan Caruba. Oil producing nations such as Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states, along with Venezuela, will grow rich while Americans will be faced with high costs for gasoline, motor and heating oil, and everything else that depends on oil such as asphalt or even Vaseline. Meanwhile, oil producers in America, large and small, will […]

That OPEC Doctrine

September 13, 2008 by


This article appeared two days back in the news here. It mentions that OPEC will be cutting back production of oil. It was hardly mentioned at all, just a quickly glossed over thing in the one financial report I saw. I can imagine that it even had less reporting in the US. The way I […]

The Supreme Court ruled foreign terrorists have rights under OUR constitution. This is why we must elect a Republican president. Obama may appoint Muslim terrorists... The House approved extra 3 months of jobless benefits, but it wont pass! In election year, its all about image, not results. We're still falling for this stuff. Aaargh.

Fueling Our Discontent

June 14, 2008 by


This gas is getting ridiculous & I'm not sitting idly by while the big oil companies & George Bush sucked every last cent out of my welfare checks. I called Scooter, over to plan to strike a blow against Big Oil. Scooter showed up with a bag of mushrooms & two bottles of Bailey's for what promised to be a marathon strategy session

By Howard Salter With roots going back to the 1953 Operation Ajax Coup and with a religious distaste for empires and economic colonialism that culminated in the 1979 Islamist overthrowing of a pro-U.S. government, with American hostages taken for 444 days at the embassy in Tehran , the United States and Iran severed political and […]
