    The Left's Big Deficit, Less Energy Plan for Millions of Low Paying Entry-Level Jobs

    Last week Heritage Senior Policy Analyst David Kreutzer wrote a WebMemo detailing the flaws of three recent enviro/leftist reports purporting to show that massive government interference in the energy sector would lead to millions of new jobs. The co-author of one of those studies, the Center for American Progress’ Robert … More

    No Big 'Change' Coming on Guantanamo Detainees

    According to The Washington Post, the Obama administration is planning to “launch a review of the classified files of the approximately 250 detainees at Guantanamo Bay immediately after taking office, as part of an intensive effort to close the U.S. prison in Cuba.” Obama hopes to close GITMO quickly but, … More

    President George W. Bush's Legacy

    With all the excitement surrounding Obama’s historic victory last week, relatively little attention has been given to the outgoing President’s legacy. In fact, most of Europe just seems relieved that the age of ‘Bush’s cowboy unilateralism’ is finally over. It is often difficult to judge a President before the fog … More

    Is There No End to Cap and Trade's Failure?

    It is already well established that the European Union’s cap-and-trade plan has not only failed to actually reduce carbon emissions, but even if the reductions were met, they would have no impact on world temperatures. Now we learn that global collapse in commodity prices has rendered the system completley inoperable. … More

    Remembering British Veterans

    As the world marks the 90th anniversary of the end of the First World War, it seems a lifetime ago that Europe was plunged into unimaginable darkness, resulting in approximately 20 million military and civilian deaths within four short years. Yet four British veterans of World War I survive today, … More

    Defying All Reality

    President-elect Barack Obama made it pretty clear during his campaign that he did not support free trade, but The Washington Post endorsed him anyway.

    Obamania in Britain

    The British newspapers continue to be full of analysis of Barack Obama’s election victory on Tuesday. As the scale of his victory becomes clear, the coverage has become even more fulsome in its praise of President-elect Obama’s incredible personal story in reaching The White House. The British Prime Minister and … More

    Oh My God, They Admitted It

    The environmental left spews so many lies it is difficult picking out which is the most pernicious. But considering how the economy is everyone’s number one concern right now, the left’s promise to save the economy with “green collar jobs” is definitely the most salient one out there right now. … More

    Morning Bell: No 'Change' Coming to Corporate Bailout Parade

    According to reports, ailing U.S. automakers are already lobbying the Obama transition camp for a taxpayer-financed bailout, and they’ve turned up the dial on doom and gloom in recent weeks to make government action appeal all the more pressing. General Motors, for one, says it will run out of cash … More

    EU Turns Its Back on Lithuania, Poland on Policy Toward Russia

    European Union ministers are pressuring Poland and Lithuania to endorse the EU’s business-as-usual approach toward Russia, despite the fact that Russia remains in violation of the EU-negotiated truce over the Russian-Georgian war. The EU apparently wants to have Poland and Lithuania on board for this scurrilous betrayal, so that it … More
