America’s bright energy future

By Rick Manning Domestic energy production on private or state lands has surged over the past seven years, and this is great news for America. Per barrel oil production has increased 400 percent to an estimated 400 barrels per day in the past six years in what are known as the big three oil fields: Bakken (North Dakota), Permian Basin […]

The EPA takes aim at Tesla, electric cars

By Tom Toth The cornerstone of personal independence and commerce in the modern world is motorized mobility — the car. Ever since Henry Ford’s Model T revolutionized travel in the United States over a hundred years ago, people have relied on the automobile for virtually every personal interaction and business expenditure. Today, the car may very well be at the […]

Australia shoots down climate lobby’s scare mongering

By Marita Noon Thursday, July 17 was a big news day. The world was shocked to learn that a Russian-made missile shot down a Malaysian Airlines jet with 298 on board as it flew over Ukraine en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam. Though flight 17 eclipsed the news cycle, there was another thing shot down on July 17. Almost […]

More taxpayer dollars for green energy?

By Marita Noon There is an intentional tension in Washington. Our founding fathers planned that opposing views would balance each other out — a push-pull takes place. Spend. Don’t spend. This tug-of-war is seen, perhaps most obviously, in the so-called renewable energy field. After Solyndra, and the more than fifty other stimulus-funded green energy projects that have failed or are […]

Can the U.S. fill the gap of potential oil losses from Iraq?

Obama national monument designations destroy communities, extinguish mining claims

By Marita Noon President Obama is in trouble with his usual allies, not to mention his ever-ready opponents, over two recent acts of excessive executive power: the Bergdahl prisoner swap and the new CO2 regulations announced on Monday, June 2. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, has been publicly critical of the administration’s decision not to adhere to […]

New EPA regulations a death blow to American energy

By Tom Toth The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced new regulations that place at risk something Americans all now take for granted—turning the lights on. After “Cap-and-Trade” bills failed to attract even modest traction when his Party had a supermajority, President Barack Obama made good on his promise to step over the will of the American people in his […]

Obama administration hides its use of bad science

By Marita Noon Six years later, we know that President Obama’s pledge to run the most transparent administration in history was merely a campaign promise, a White House talking point, and not a statement of management style. We’ve seen a series of highly public scandals—Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, NSA, and now, the VA—where Oversight Committees have fought to pry […]
