    the DOE and everybody in the auto industry pegged their EV hopes and dreams on lithium manganese oxide, or LMO, and lithium iron phosphate, or LFP, batteries. The reasons were simple. Both chemistries had great performance profiles for EVs and both chemistries were made using cheap and abundant raw materials – lithium, manganese and iron. The sole renegade was Tesla, which planned to use consumer grade cells and a nickel-cobalt chemistry instead of more costly automotive grade LMO and LFP cells. Tesla's theory, which had more than a touch of genius, was that using consumer grade cells would allow it...

    Republicans in the U.S. House caucused on Thursday and chose U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to replace U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., as House majority leader. They also selected U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., to replace McCarthy as GOP whip. U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., weighed in on Thursday after the vote and said he backed U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Ind., over McCarthy but did back Scalise. Yoho also tried unsuccessfully to move the vote back a week. “Yesterday in the House Republican conference I introduced a motion to delay the vote for the majority leader of the Republican Party...

    **SNIP** Yet now comes the sell, with the president, just as he did with ObamaCare, in full pitchman mode. Before the ink was dry, he was in California before adoring crowds assembled to nod and smile and clap on cue as he trotted out a straw man to demonize critics. “Tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it’s not the right thing for our country,” he told the nodding heads. There he goes again. If you don’t agree with him, you’re playing politics. Only he knows “the right thing for our country.” His latest...

    SAN FRANCISCO—The government shutdown is beginning to ensnare a lot of people and businesses who didn't think it had anything to do with them. On Wednesday, a random canvassing of spurned visitors outside the Cliff House—a tourist spot perched above the Pacific Ocean at the city's western edge—revealed that even those related to President Barack Obama aren't immune. Two members of the president's extended family were denied entry to the historic dining establishment, which is privately operated but has been ordered to close because it is on national park land. Virginia Goeldner, 78 years old, Mr. Obama's maternal great aunt,...

    MISSOULA, Mont. – A federal judge has ordered a Montana newlywed to be released from jail on her own recognizance while awaiting a murder trial in the death of her husband in Glacier National Park. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch said Thursday that Jordan Linn Graham, 22, of Kalispell did not pose a flight risk because of her strong community ties and did not appear to be a danger to others. Graham allegedly pushed Cody Lee Johnson, 25, face-first off a cliff to his death in the national park on July 7 after the two argued. Earlier that day, prosecutors...

    On Friday, Gallup released a poll gauging Americans' views of the Senate deal passed last week to avert the "fiscal cliff." Overall, Americans are mixed on the deal, with 45% disapproving and 43% approving. Among Republican voters, though, the verdict is overwhelmingly negative. 65% of Republican voters disapprove of the plan, against just 27% who support it. It's the opening salvo in the 2014 primaries. The Senate deal, negotiated by GOP Leader McConnell and VP Biden, gave the government $620 Billion in new tax revenue and delayed, for two months, the automatic spending cuts enacted with the debt ceiling increase...

    When lawmakers delivered a long-delayed, last-minute agreement on the budget, Wall Street celebrated. And it would be easy to think that the surge in the Dow the following day meant that investors had put their concerns about Washington's political gridlock behind them. The Dow Jones industrial average surged on the news, but that doesn't mean the volatility is over. In fact, there could be more turmoil in the market soon because decisions on cutting the federal budget deficit have been put off until March, when the government will reach its borrowing limit. Republicans have already said they will demand cuts...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi isn't ruling out pushing for upper-income earners to pay more even after the "fiscal cliff" deal that raised their taxes. She tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that "I'm saying that's not off the table." The California Democrats isn't getting into specifics but she does discuss changes to tax law that might involve deductions and other breaks.

    I'm getting tired of the "See, and you guys didn't like Romney, so this is what you get" garbage floating around lately. Assume a Romney Administration with the so-called 'fiscal cliff' debate extended into his watch, and this is what you've got: WH: Republican. Congress: Republican. Senate: Democrat or barely Republican and not able to sustain a filibuster. Here is President Romney at his press conference announcing a deal on the 'fiscal cliff', "As you know, Senate Democrat leaders have been intransigent on a budget deal that would avoid the fiscal cliff. In order to protect as many people as...
  • 'Fiscal Cliff' Deal Punishes Work, Rewards Unemployment

    The "fiscal cliff" deal approved by the Senate in a 89-8 vote early this morning, and which is under consideration by the House of Representatives today, punishes work and rewards unemployment. The deal fails to renew a payroll tax holiday that had been in effect for two years, with the result that working families could see their tax bill rise by up to $2,000. Meanwhile, the deal extends unemployment benefits for a full year--and as economist Robert Barro has demonstrated, longer benefits lead to higher unemployment. Effectively, Washington has decided to create new penalties for work, and new incentives for...

    Last night, the Republican-held House of Representatives voted for the dreadful Senate bill laughingly called “The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.” How is adding $4 trillion in Federal budget deficits over 10 years called “relief?” SOMEONE has to pay for the out-of-control spending. And that someone is taxpayers. american.taxpayer.relief.act Here is CNBC’s Rick Santelli’s take. The reaction? Fiscally-blighted European countries Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain (PIGs) all saw sharp reductions in their sovereign bond yields. The US 10 year sovereign yield rose 7.1 basis points as of 12:35p EST. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 224.60 points (or 1.71%)...

    After spending months telling Americans that the fiscal cliff deal was the most important thing facing their nation, Barack Obama has gone back to his vacation. Within a few hours of the bill's passage last night, he was enjoying the comforts of Air Force One, en route to Hawaii. Heaven forbid he’s forced to sacrifice any more of his multi-million dollar getaway.

    Last night, the House of Representatives signed off on a deal to avert the massive tax hikes and spending cuts known, nearly posthumously, as the "fiscal cliff." Today we are a presidential signature away from the official end of this absurd national nightmare. But did the president make a bad deal? Did he make a secretly ingenious deal? What's in it, anyway? Those are questions. These are our answers ... What's in the fiscal cliff deal? The Tweet-length version of this deal is: No more payroll tax holiday, higher taxes for the super-rich, and we'll figure out the rest later....
