  • Kellyanne Conway to DeSantis: ‘Woke and COVID’ Will Not Win the Presidency

    Fox News contributor and former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said Monday on FNC’s “The Story” that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) should focus on Florida’s economic success instead of “woke and COVID.” Conway said, “I give President Trump and Governor DeSantis credit for being out there connecting with voters. You had Kamala Harris and Joe Biden at home. They were in California and Delaware yet again, as if all the nation’s problems have been solved. I thought up Trump getting at CPAC and saying I can finish the job. We had lower crime, lower prices. Only he can say that I’ve...
  • Fox News Host: Biden's Energy Policy Is an Impeachable Offense

    It's a lengthy commentary but this one shreds the endless stream of nonsense the Biden administration has manufactured in a pathetic attempt to cover for their serial failure on gas prices, inflation, and the supply chain fiasco. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson went on a near 20-minute tear into this administration. Carlson knows the Left hates him. His segment served as another reminder of why they hate him—and it’s something he wears with pride. He eviscerates all their narratives with ease. Carlson explained what we all know which is that Biden’s energy policy is grounded in intentional harm. The Green Left...

    Gas prices went up again on Wednesday, setting a new record for the 12th straight day even after resident Joe Biden’s unprecedented release from the nation’s emergency petroleum reserves began on Sunday. According to AAA’s gas tracker, the nationwide average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $4.56, surpassing the prior day’s high when prices passed $4.50. Diesel fuel, used for tankers, trains, trucks, farming machinery, and other industrial equipment, also reached a new high at $5.577 per gallon on Wednesday. The daily consecutive records come weeks ahead of Memorial Day, when prices traditionally reach their spring peak. In...

    administration has produced a clownish energy policy. It is simultaneously suppressing petroleum production in the U.S. and begging Saudi Arabia and Russia to produce more. This is idiotic, but Jennifer Granholm apparently thinks it’s funny. You might think the administration’s energy policies couldn’t possibly get worse. But now the New York Times reports: “Biden Administration Plans Wind Farms Along Nearly the Entire U.S. Coastline.” The Biden administration announced on Wednesday a plan to develop large-scale wind farms along nearly the entire coastline of the United States, the first long-term strategy from the government to produce electricity from offshore turbines.

  • Biden’s Climate Hypocrisy Endangers Energy Security

    By now, many among us are familiar with the words Green New Deal, net zero, Paris agreement, carbon neutral, etc. All are names for energy policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, the very politicians who preach the climate gospel — and espouse anti-fossil fuel policies — have embraced fossil fuels with gusto. Last week, U.S. President Joe Biden called for an increase in oil production from OPEC countries to rein in gas price increases in America, thus contradicting his calls for a reduction in fossil fuel consumption. Will there be an end to politicians’ fossil fuel hypocrisy? Biden:...

    Correcting the record is important since assigning the wrong reasons for Texas’s electric blackouts will lead to the wrong solutions.hen the lights went out in Texas earlier this year, corporate media and the left swiftly developed a narrative and stuck to it: Texas failed because it didn’t regulate enough and it wasn’t part of the national grid.This storyline also claimed a lack of electricity from wind and solar had nothing to do with the disaster that claimed almost 60 lives. Instead, the blackouts were the failure of normally reliable thermal power—natural gas, coal, and nuclear—due to a reluctance to spend...
  • Biden’s Electric Vehicle Mandate Won’t Improve Environmental Outcomes – But Will Raise Energy Costs

    Since taking office in January, President Biden has issued an unprecedented number of Executive Orders aimed at undoing President Trump’s signature deregulatory agenda, namely issuing a suite of climate related executive orders including re-entering the Paris Climate Accord, cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline, freezing new oil and gas leases on federal lands, and directing the federal government to replace its nearly 600,000 vehicle fleet with electric vehicles (EVs). Citing climate change as an existential threat, Congressional Democrats have their own green agenda to push electric vehicles, introducing legislation to extend major tax credits for EVs along with credits and subsidies...

    Joe Biden won the 2020 election by consistently and falsely presenting himself as a political moderate who desperately wants to unify America.In reality, Biden’s ideology is much further to the left than his campaign was ever willing to admit. Additionally, his policies are designed to impose the ideas of the left on all states, the exact opposite approach a president would take if he or she were truly interested in uniting the country.But do not take my word for it. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)—the face of the modern socialist movement in the United States—has repeatedly suggested Biden could be America’s“most...

    Natural Resources: Last week President Trump announced plans to make the U.S. not just energy independent, but a global energy powerhouse. Too bad everyone was hyperfocused on his tweets. On Thursday, Trump said he was ushering in a new energy policy that marked an end to decades of fretting about an alleged "energy crisis" brought on by supposed limited domestic supplies and an insatiable demand for fossil fuels. "We now know that was all a big, beautiful myth," Trump said in remarks at the Department of Energy. "The truth is that we have near-limitless supplies of energy in our country."...
  • WOW! Navajo People Cheer Trump For Dismantling Obama Energy Policy

    The Navajo people are apparently all for coal production and good energy policy. They’re happy that Trump is undoing Obama’s restrictive policies in this area, too. Breitbart reports: EXCLUSIVE: Navajos Celebrate End of Obama’s Job-Killing Energy Policies: Trump Offers ‘Unwavering Support’ for Coal Former President Barack Obama’s efforts to shut down the coal industry in the United States have threatened the well-being of generations of coal plant and mine workers, including those of the Navajo Nation. The Navajo Generating Station and the Kayenta Mine on Navajo land in Arizona has directly and indirectly provided 3,100 jobs and $180 million in...

    “Keep it in the ground.” That mantra of the Greens encapsulates the restrictive energy policies imposed by the Obama administration. But there’s a better approach: one that relies on the ingenuity of free enterprise to produce abundant, reliable, and affordable energy for all. That approach, rather than the restrictive, bureaucratically directed model favored by the left, will lead to significant savings for consumers, serious economic growth, and lower government spending. But there’s a catch. The free-market approach outlined in The Heritage Foundation’s “Blueprint for Reform: A Comprehensive Policy Agenda for a New Administration in 2017″ would require both presidential and...

    If you’re like most Americans, you’re enjoying the fact that it costs a lot less to fill up your car’s gas tank these days. If you’re a fan of big government, you may feel a bit ambivalent, though. Why? Because one of the biggest drivers behind the drop in gas prices is the rise in directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) here at home. While the government is busy micromanaging the energy industry — trying to saddle it with more regulations while showering favors on so-called “green” companies — the free market is showing how to actually get things done....
  • Keystone stuck at 59 votes

    Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and other supporters of the Keystone XL oil pipeline are stuck at 59 votes — one vote shy of the supermajority they need to move their bill forward on Tuesday. Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) said Monday that they would vote against moving forward with the legislation, making it unclear whether supporters had a path to the magic number of 60. Rockefeller had appeared to be one of the last possible converts Monday evening, and supporters were pressuring the retiring senator to join their side. But he told reporters on Monday that he...
  • Scams, Fraud Flourish in Solar Still

    Consumers considering installing solar panels on their rooftops have far more to think through than the initial decision to “go solar.” They may search for the best price, only to discover, as customers in central Florida did, that after paying $20,000-40,000 for their systems, they are stuck with installations that may be unusable or unsafe. BlueChip Energy—which also operated as Advanced Solar Photonics (ASP) and SunHouse Solar—sold its systems at environmental festivals and home shows. Buyers thought they were getting a good deal and doing the right thing for the environment. Instead, they were duped. A year ago, it was...
  • Which Way, USA? America At A Crossroads With Economic And Energy Policy

    Will Americans continue allowing a radicalized environmental agenda to animate Washington, one that prohibits the utilization of natural resources – oil in particular – and that squelches the nation’s economy? Or could it be that, at such a time as this, rationality might take-hold in the USA yet again? As if our own problems aren’t a sufficient reason to bolster the U.S. energy industry, the world is now upended by a Russia that appears intent on re-creating another Soviet Union while simultaneously forming an energy axis with China. If America could supply more of the world’s natural gas and oil...

    Like many conflicts before it, the current battle brewing between Russia and Ukraine has a strong energy component. Russia has a history of using its energy supplies as a control mechanism—such as the 2006 and 2009 gas wars when it cut natural gas supplies in the midst of winter and left many European nations, which rely on Russian natural gas that is shipped through Ukraine, without energy. The supply disruptions were due to “disputes over politics, price, and late payments,” says the Washington Post. Back in November, before the current conflict erupted, Reuters reported: “Ukraine has for years been a...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is shifting his focus to the nation's energy policy, starting on Monday. At the Heritage Action for America's Conservative Policy Summit in Washington, D.C., on Monday, Cruz will make the case that while President Obama should approve the Keystone XL pipeline, Republicans need to come up with other ideas to expand the country's energy production. Aides to the Cruz told The Washington Post that the senator is drafting a bill called the American Energy Renaissance Act, which he will announce at the event on Monday. "There is only one thing that will stop us from embracing...

    Thomas James Perkins is a stud. If he weren’t an octogenarian, I’d ask for his hand in marriage because he courageously and eloquently defends free market capitalism. Perkins is the founder of the Silicon Valley venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB). He is also the ex-husband of the world’s reigning best-selling author alive: American novelist and San Francisco resident Danielle Steel. Last week, the Wall Street Journal published a three-paragraph op-ed by Perkins in which he defended free market economics. The liberal media, especially the Silicon Valley tech blogs, went up in arms. HOW could he have...
