    “President Obama’s call for a $95 billion energy tax hike would thwart the very goals expressed in his State of the Union address,” American Petroleum Institute (API) Pres. Jack Gerard said today. “America’s oil and natural gas renaïssance has done everything on the president’s State of the Union wish list for the middle class,” Gerard said, responding to Obama’s proposed budget. “Opposition to President Obama’s proposals is strong and bipartisan. The president’s annual call to raise taxes on U.S. oil and natural gas development would hurt job creation, infrastructure investment, the federal deficit, seniors on fixed incomes and domestic manufacturing.”...

    Video at link. (CNSNews.com) – Jack Gerard, CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, says President Barack Obama is “factually incorrect” to say that the Keystone XL Pipeline will not benefit Americans. At the press conference in Washington Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked Gerard about Obama’s remarks in November about the pipeline, which, if approved, would transport crude oil from Canada and from two U.S. states to refineries on the Gulf Coast. Jack Gerard, CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, held a press conference with reporters on Jan. 6, 2015 following his annual State of American Energy speech in Washington, D.C.

  • EPA Increases Mandates For Fuels That Don't Exist

    Energy: In yet another green folly, the lawless Environmental Protection Agency continues to fine gasoline producers for not using cellulosic biofuels in quantities that don't exist, making only more pain at the pump. Last month, a federal court dealt a serious blow to the Environmental Protection Agency's renewable fuels push by ruling that the agency exceeded its authority by mandating refiners use cellulosic biofuels, which aren't commercially available. The EPA's lawless response in a lawless administration was to raise its requirements. In 2005 and 2007, Congress twice amended the Clean Air Act to establish a renewable fuel standard (RFS) that...

    I was on the road yesterday afternoon when the news broke that Susan G. Komen for the Cure was defunding Planned Parenthood.Since then abortion proponents and news organizations have worked themselves into a frenzy speculating why it happened and who is to blame – from George W. Bush, to new SGK VP of public policy Karen Handel.This is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and write what I know.I have a source who reaches into the SGK board of directors. My source told me in December this split was in the works but that SGK did not want...
  • Cheating by California teachers invalidates schools' test scores

    Los Angeles Times ^ | September 18, 2011 | By Howard Blume
    Twenty-two California schools had their test scores thrown out this year. Nearly half the campuses lost their Academic Performance Index scores because of cheating by teachers. Several others were penalized because of help teachers gave students that violated rules. Additionally, some school scores were rejected because of what appeared to be accidental actions. In most cases, schools or school districts turned themselves in. Because of budget cuts, the state Education Department no longer conducts random audits at schools or scans test booklets for irregularities. The number of schools with invalidated test scores remains relatively small but is edging upward. In...

    Many energy industry experts are skeptical of Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann’s campaign promise to get gas back down to $2 a gallon if she’s elected. “One thing that annoys me the most about politicians is that many will say or do just about anything to get elected,” said Robert Rapier of Consumer Energy Report. “My immediate reaction to that was to wonder whether she is really that naive or simply making dishonest campaign promises that she knows she can’t keep. Neither trait is one I want in a president.” Bachmann skeptics say even if it were possible to lower...

    (CNSNews.com) – Wanted: More domestic energy production and crude oil from Canada.That’s the gist of a new ad campaign sponsored by the American Petroleum Institute, a group that represents more than 470 oil and natural gas companies.Jack Gerard, president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, says if the U.S. develops its own oil and natural gas resources and imports more oil from Canada, the country could meet 92 percent of its liquid fuels needs by 2030, compared with 62 percent today.“Let me repeat that once again for emphasis,” Gerard told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday. “The analysis...

    There should be no question about the certificate below. If there is any challenge to this fact, the only person who can do that is the President Himself. The only way to do that is by releasing one he thinks is more genuine than the one below.

I voted for McCain last year (by default, I wanted huckabee) because I knew Nobama would be a disaster, but i wasn't sold on the citizenship thing. on a whim, I asked a firend in the UK to see if she could find any old records from back when Kenya was a british colony.

    The American Petroleum Institute has just released the results of its third annual “Energy IQ” survey, and it reflects that Americans’ knowledge about energy issues is lacking. The survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, comes as President Obama and Congress are pursuing aggressive energy and climate policies that threaten the nation’s economy, and which will determine America’s economic competitiveness for years to come. Some high points from the survey: • When asked about the role fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas and coal will play in meeting global energy demand, only 10 percent of respondents answered correctly that fossil fuels...

    It was with more than a just a little amusement that I read the recent article, “A budget cure: Marijuana taxes?” which makes the claim, “In this desperate economy, some argue that legalizing and taxing marijuana could plug multibillion-dollar holes in federal and state coffers.” Potheads have for decades been using every angle they can to gain legalization for their habit, but this is a new one, to me. According to California “medicinal marijuana” retailer, Daniel Stein, “Cannabis is good for the economy. It’s been here the whole time, but it’s had a bad rap the entire time.” There are...

    President Obama and Mrs Clinton. This was not expected to happen so soon, but now it is real. Obama sources confirm that the president will resign on the 15th of June and no reason has been given to the abrubt end of his presidency. Many world leaders got a rude shock a few minutes ago when they got a “Top Secret” mail informing them on the intended resignation. Obama will attend G20 summit in the UK soon and while there, he is expected to inform world leaders about the decision to resign. Insiders contacted by API say Obama will resign...

    API reached an agreement with one Michelle Obama representative to end the tape saga. The reason was the fact that both parties wanted things to come to an end. As we wrote earlier that Kenya and Iran will have closer ties than before, should Obama win the elections, it is now evident that this is happening. The Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga visited Iran sometimes back to discus how Kenya can get Iran’s help to get a reactor to boost Kenya’s electricity needs and while on his trip to that country, he took along Kibaki’s invitation to the Iranian President...

    Yes, this is a true picture portrayed by President Obama these days. The man has managed to convince the American people that he is the right man for the job. Whenever he appears on TV, the man is so relaxed and does not show signs of fear to rule the only powerful nation in the world. ¨World leaders recently conferencing in Davos praised Obama for having been elected and they indicated willingness to work with him for the better of mankind this century. Even though he has just started his presidency, it a sure case that if he continues the...
