  • Time to Break from Obama with Offshore Energy

    The Trump administration recently appealed a court decision that prohibits offshore development in the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. American workers and energy consumers should hope this appeal is successful. Suspending offshore development would entrench the energy policies of the Obama administration, which banned oil and gas exploration throughout the Atlantic. Federal law requires the Interior Department to publish five-year plans detailing which offshore areas are -- and which ones aren't -- open to energy exploration. Currently, the department is operating under the program the Obama administration approved in its final days, a midnight regulation from a regime with a worldview...

    The red lionfish (P. volitans) is a voracious predator in the Atlantic Ocean but furtive in its native Pacific. A new study shows evidence of rapid evolution when it arrived in the Atlantic.

A new North Carolina State University study examining two native lionfish regions in the Pacific and five invading regions in the Atlantic showed the greatest genetic similarities between lionfish...

    Remarkable photos of the record-breaking cruise liner SS Normandie at the height of her glamour show the 'floating palace' before she was destroyed by a hapless American welder. The 1,000ft French passenger ship was the largest and fastest liner in the world when she made her maiden voyage from Le Havre to New York in 1935. The SS Normandie made 139 crossings before she was confiscated by the Americans at the advent of World War Two. After Pearl Harbour was attacked by the Japanese, she was renamed USS Lafayette and was to be converted into a troop ship. However, with...

    The Atlantic’s Jemele Hill referenced a public assassination during President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night. Hill, a far-leftist who despises Trump and has falsely labeled the president a “white supremacist,” alluded to the assassination of Malcolm X, who was gunned down in front of his supporters and family while preparing to give a speech at the Audubon Ballroom in 1965. “[P]lease let @AOC yell out ‘whose mans is this,'” actor Desus Nice posted on Twitter. Hill responded, “Nah, she gotta yell: GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET.”

    A Frenchman has set off to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a barrel-shaped orange capsule, using ocean currents alone to propel him. Jean-Jacques Savin, 71, left El Hierro in Spain's Canary Islands and hopes to reach the Caribbean in as little as three months. His reinforced capsule contains a sleeping bunk, kitchen and storage. He will drop markers along the way to help oceanographers study Atlantic currents. Updates on the journey are being posted on a Facebook page and the latest message said the barrel was "behaving well". In a telephone interview with AFP news agency, he said: "The weather...

    It is claimed that the passages predict “everyone will flee” as “young men [are] left to pieces” A CONSPIRACY theorist has claimed that The Bible holds “hidden” passages which predict Spain will be destroyed by a giant tsunami. According to a ‘psychic’ who goes by the name T Chase, Cumbre Vieja on La Palma – not far from tourist hotspot Tenerife – will be hit first. It is claimed the devastation will be triggered when a volcano on the Canary Islands erupts, sparking huge tidal waves. North Africa would then be hit next, it is claimed. The passages which it...

    You Tube -- Resisting immigration? Maybe it's just in our natureImmigration officials last week arrested 105 people in New Jersey suspected of being in the country illegally, including four people with international criminal warrants. This came the same week that state officials announced new rules on how local police will handle immigration matters.ICE said the arrests had been planned before state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal released his directive, which the federal agency has criticized. The policy prevents police from inquiring about a person's immigration status unless it is relevant to an investigation. Jails also will not be allowed to detain...

Franklin Foer, a Jewish staff writer for The Atlantic, suggested in the article that Jewish Americans who support Trump are complicit in anti-Semitic acts. The article was published the same day 11 people were killed by a shooter at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    Experts at Colorado State University predict storm activity for the remainder of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season will be "below average." Their latest report predicts the Atlantic could produce nine named storms and three hurricanes from now to the end of hurricane season, which ends Nov. 30. Of those three hurricanes, experts predict one will be a major hurricane, which means a Category 3, 4 or 5 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. A Category 3 storm has wind speeds between 111 and 129 miles per hour, while the strongest Category 5 storm hits 157 mph or higher. The report, produced...

    The National Hurricane Center said Wednesday evening (July 4) that two areas of tropical weather in the Atlantic Ocean have a "medium" chance of developing into more organized systems over the next two to five days. An area of low pressure west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, a few hundred miles south of Bermuda, features disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Conditions favor the formation of a tropical depression before the end of the week as the system moves west-northwestward and then northward between Bermuda and the U.S. East Coast, according to the National Hurricane Center. Chances for the system to organize...

    Kanye West wants freedom—white freedom.

Yes, it had to have happened like this, like folk wisdom, because when I think of that era, I do not think of MTV, but of the futile attempt to stay awake and navigate the yawning whiteness of Friday Night Videos, and I remember that there were no VCRs...

    Washington (AFP) - A top US navy admiral announces the re-establishment of the US 2nd Fleet -- a Cold War command disbanded in 2011 -- to patrol the North Atlantic and face a resurgent threat from Russia. The chief of US Naval Operations, Admiral John Richardson, made the announcement during a change of command ceremony Friday in the Atlantic naval port of Norfolk, Virginia. "Our National Defense Strategy makes clear that we're back in an era of great power competition as the security environment continues to grow more challenging and complex," said Richardson, according to a navy statement.

    Researchers think Plutarch’s De Facie tells the tale of Greek sailors making the treacherous transatlantic crossing. They dug into the science to show how it could have happened. The story of the European settlement of North America usually features a few main characters: red-headed Norsemen who sailed across an icy sea to set up temporary outposts, Spanish conquistadors, white-collared English separatists, French trappers, and Dutch colonists. Now a team of Greek scholars proposes another—and much earlier—wave of European migration: the Hellenistic Greeks, in triremes powered by sail and oar in the first century CE, nearly a millennium before the Vikings.These...

    WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The U.S. military is stepping up operations in the Gulf of Guinea to enhance security in this strategic and resource-rich region, the commander of U.S. European Command's naval surface combatant warships told the Pentagon Channel. U.S. military engagement along southwestern Africa's Atlantic coast has increased exponentially, Capt. Tom Rowden, commander of Task Force 65, said during a Pentagon interview last week. It's increased from almost no activity in 2004 to 130 "ship days" in 2005 to even more planned ship days this year, he said. The goal is to build long-term relationships that promote greater security and...

    House lawmakers kicked off their effort to push back against national monuments designations, targeting the large swaths of ocean the Obama administration made off limits to fishing. “I don’t believe the Antiquities Act should have ever been applied to oceans,” Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young said during a Wednesday hearing on marine monument designations. “There was never intent of that.” Republicans on the House Committee on Natural Resources have long criticized former President Barack Obama’s use of the Antiquities Act to put millions of square miles off limits to commercial fishing with little to no input from locals. With President...
