Democrat Energy Policies are Crushing America’s Poor!

Democrats are fond of trotting out tired old lines like “war on women” or “cutting taxes for the rich” when arguing with their Republican counterparts; it’s their best weapon in the battle over policy. The reason they’re forced to resort to these tactics is because they hardly ever win on just the merits of their arguments – so they are forced to turn to rhetorical attacks to undermine their opponents. One such rhetorical flourish is when they imply (or just outright say) that Republicans Read more […]

The Real Winner Of Obama’s ‘War On Coal’: George Soros

The real winner of President Barack Obama’s so-called “war on coal” isn’t the Environmental Protection Agency, nor is it the natural gas industry. It’s liberal billionaire George Soros. Last week, Obama’s EPA announced sweeping regulations for U.S. power plants, forcing them to drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions 32 percent by 2030. The news sent shockwaves through the coal industry, sending stocks tumbling and forcing the industry’s two biggest players to consider bankruptcy Read more […]

Sixteen States Reject Obama’s Energy Regulations that Will Destroy Their Economies

The states reject energy regulations that Barack Obama is imposing on the nation. Reading the Associated Press story, I wonder how Barack Obama thinks he can get away with this. Does he want a Republican to win the presidency in 2016? Every Republican candidate should spell out how energy prices are going to be jacked up by the President’s use of executive authority. Sixteen states want nothing to do with it. The campaign to stop President Barack Obama’s sweeping emissions limits on power Read more […]

Oregon To Test Nation’s First Per-Mile Road Fee In Lieu Of Gas Taxes

As cars get more efficient, their owners spend less money on fuel. That’s good for their wallets and for the environment, but not so good for the nation’s infrastructure. That’s because road maintenance is heavily reliant on revenue from gas taxes, and that revenue is shrinking as cars use less fuel–and those that run on grid electricity use none at all. This has led some states to levy a tax on electric cars, but Oregon is pioneering a more comprehensive solution. It’s looking into whether Read more […]

Obama Energy Secretary: 20% Increase in Energy Prices is No Big Deal!

Conservative Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) is one of those principled, stiff-spined politicians that we on the right are always clamoring for. He stands on principle and doesn’t bend just because strange new political winds are blowing. He’s also not afraid to ask tough questions of the Obama administration, even when it leads to a little bit embarrassment for the person being questioned. Recently, he went hard after the Department of Energy Secretary, Dr. Ernest Moniz, a brilliant (but Read more […]

Gohmert to New Republicans: Defund Amnesty & Obamacare, Set Energy Sector Free

The New Year has begun and Americans can expect a tumultuous year when it comes to the Republican-controlled Senate and House tackling issues that propelled the overturn of a Democratic Senate monopoly in last year’s midterm elections. Appearing on the FoxNews “Hannity” show, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) indicated the top three priorities for Republicans assuming the majority in the Congress will be defunding amnesty, defunding parts of the Obamacare legislation, and deregulating energy. Gohmert Read more […]

EPA Hits Coal Industry With a Massive Regulation Right Before Christmas

While millions of Americans began their holiday travels last Friday, the Environmental Protection Agency had an early Christmas gift for the coal industry: a new regulation on coal ash from power plants. In a statement, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said: EPA is taking action to protect our communities from the risk of mismanaged coal ash disposal units, and putting in place safeguards to help prevent the next catastrophic coal ash impoundment failure, which can cost millions for local businesses, Read more […]

Soros Pushing Obama Scheme to Shut Down Coal

A group of wealthy businessmen with ties to the Obama political machine has put out an email blast asking Americans to submit public comments to the EPA in favor of the president’s “aggressive plan to tackle climate change.” The new EPA rules would slap strict regulations on power plants through a plan critics say would result in millions of lost jobs and force consumers to pay more for their electricity. The EPA is accepting comments from the public through Dec. 1. Organizing for Action, Read more […]

EPA Chief: ‘This Is Not About Pollution Control…It’s an Investment Strategy’

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy told Congress on Wednesday that the EPA’s sweeping carbon-regulation plan “really is an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control.” Spouting warnings about “climate change” (“The science is clear. The risks are clear…We must act.”), McCarthy described and defended the EPA’s plan to reduce pollution from existing power plants by setting various carbon-reduction goals for each state to meet by the year 2030. “And the great thing about this proposal Read more […]

Another Reason to Defeat Democrats in 2014: They Want to Tax Energy

Australia was recently condemned by Al Gore for pulling back from its carbon taxes. Now, the Daily Caller reports that South Korea is showing signs that it may follow Australia’s lead. We can only hope that other nations throw off their shackles. But Democrats in the United States are doubling down. Even with the possibility of losing the Senate they are openly promising to attempt to impose a new tax on the American people after the elections. According to CNS News: Senate Majority Leader Read more […]
