    Why Are Greens Fiddling While Coal Burns?

    Great article by John Tierney in The New York Times contrasting the ‘soft’ Barack Obama vs ‘hard’ John McCain approaches to America’s energy future yesterday.

    Looking for Law in All the Wrong Places

But after he secured the nomination, Obama changed his tune, admitting that … More

    The Left Fights Back in Typical Lefty Fashion

       What does the left do when media appears that accurately connects them to the current financial crisis. They censor it of course. Yesterday we detailed a brilliant Saturday Night Live skit that properly exposed a major leftist donor’s connections to the subprime mortgage crisis. We wrote: The best was … More

    The Pelosi/Bush Polar Bear Oil Ban

    Earlier this year, despite Sarah Palin’s best efforts, the Bush Administration chose to cave into the environmental left and designate the polar bear as ‘threatened’ pursuant to the Endangered Species Act.
