Congress defunds Internet giveaway, advocates urge executive action

By Robert Romano No sooner had the omnibus bill’s language been dropped, including language defunding the Internet giveaway, than advocates were urging the National Information and Telecommunications Administration (NTIA) to simply ignore the clear prohibition, originally authored by Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisc.). To the uninitiated, the omnibus bill states in section 540: “None of the funds made available by this […]

How Obama and his environmental base are planning to eradicate the oil and gas industry

By Ron Arnold Why does the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulatory war against hydraulic fracturing look like the Natural Resources Defense Council’s 2007 agenda for eliminating domestic oil and natural gas development?
