World To Obama, Ease U.S. Oil Export Ban

Mmm, lub me some ultra-light, sweet crude. President Obama is facing growing international pressure to ease the long-standing ban on crude oil and natural gas exports, with South Korea and Mexico joining the European Union in pressing the case for U.S. oil shipments overseas. Never ceases to amaze me how the president must be drug screaming …

Obama By-Passing Congress Again

Refusing to take no for an answer, Obama (not The White House, but Obama) is by-passing the Democrat-controlled Senate on a Useless Nations climate agreement. King Obama is engineering a UN Climate Accord without Congress. As the media and Democrats in Congress marvel as the lawless Obama administration goes from “deeming” bills passed (ACA) to …

Economy Shrinking, Not Bush’s Fault

Amid the news that the GDP is shrinking it will be amusing to hear President Obama spin this into his recovery. No one in his media will dare ask him that question, so never mind. Meanwhile, Cap and Trade having been repeatedly defeated in Congress (you know, the Constitutional way), President Obama is moving on to …

Caracas Burning, Army Sent In, Maduro Blames U.S.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro says “fascist” forces financed from the United States were plotting against his government. Probably has nothing to do with corrupt elections and election campaigns, seizing media outlets that print or say anything against him or his party, empty shelves in stores, high crime and unemployment. It other words, the failing of another …

Budget “Deal” Reached, But

What do you call a budget deal that spends $63 Billion of “settled law” called the sequester? I call it a Republican surrender. Never mind that since the sequester began, the Obama administration has claimed some economic recovery. And never mind that the sequester passed with bi-partisan support. For un-sequestering $63 Billion dollars today and …

Liberal Blowtorch Burns Ring Of Fire

Was checking in to one of my favorite liberal, progressive, downright wacko websites, the Ring of Fire1, to see what they had to say about the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) report on climate change. Who according to them, is the world’s authority on the greenhouse effect. I previewed the report in a comment on one …

Wealth Creation Through Cost Reduction

Noted economist and former Florida gubernatorial candidate Dr. Farid Khavari exemplifies what thinking ‘outside the box’ is. When politicos in Washington believe that the government can create wealth by spreading it around, they’re not creating anything, and spreading misery. Government doesn’t create wealth, it consumes it. Dr. Khavari explains how free-market capitalism and political leadership, …

Mexico’s Energy Reform, Introduce Private Enterprise

The United States isn’t the only country in the hemisphere suffering from an incoherent energy policy. An effective energy policy is one that gets energy instead of one that won’t use all energy resources available. Mexico’s problem . . . Mexico is the world’s 10th-biggest producer of crude oil, according to OPEC data, yet output …
