Obama kicks the oil-and-gas industry while it is down

For the past six years, the oil and gas industry has served as a savior to the Obama presidency by providing the near-lone bright spot in economic growth. Increased U.S. oil-and-gas production has created millions of well-paying jobs and given us a new energy security. The president often peppers his speeches with braggadocio talk about our abundant supplies and decreased dependence on foreign oil. So now that the economic powerhouse faces hard times, how does the Administration show its appreciation for the oil-and-gas industry boon to the economy over the past six years? By introducing a series of regulations—at least…

John Podesta and the Obama Doctrine: Be very afraid

“Canada is a sovereign nation and we will develop our resources with appropriate regulations and enforcement to protect the environment,” said Paula Caldwell St-Onge. The Consulate General of Canada, St-Onge was in Albuquerque to talk up, and answer questions about, the Keystone pipeline. She’d done media interviews prior to her arrival at the University of New Mexico Science and Technology Park where a smattering of aggressive, sign-waving Keystone opponents awaited. Security escorted St-Onge from the parking lot to the meeting room. I, too, was addressing the folks who’d come in support of the controversial pipeline. Sans security, I approached the…

It’s Not Al’s (Armendariz) Fault

Frequent readers of my column might be surprised to see that I am defending Al Armendariz, the newly resigned EPA Administrator of Region 6. In his recently revealed “crucify” comments, Armendariz was merely reflecting the view from the top – though the exact word choices may have been his own. Yet, Al, alone, is taking the fall. He resigned on April 30 and his resignation was immediately accepted by EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. Yes, the above is my opinion. No, I do not have any special insight into the agency. What I do have is perspective and personal experience with…

Crucify All Bureaucrats Whose “Philosophy” Is Based On Ideology And Emotion – Others Will Behave Better

The revelation of the EPA’s “philosophy” used in their regulation of oil and gas companies – “crucify” and “make examples” of, just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience – provides proof of what many have known: policy decisions are made on ideology and emotion rather than fact, sound science, and economic or human impact. For this, we should all be grateful to Al Armendariz, EPA Administrator for Region 6. His honesty, in a 2010 video made public on April 26, allows us all a glimpse behind the shroud. Armendariz has been making, according…

If I Wanted America To Fail

April 24, 2012

Did you celebrate “Earth Day” this past weekend? Want to know the real story about how radical environmentalism is bringing about America’s certain failure? Check out this video released by Free Market America for a sobering revelation about how the tree-huggers are not only making it hard to get out of our current recession, they are laying the foundation for the destruction of the free-market economy. This should actually be Obama’s campaign video, because as are told at the end of the video: “If I wanted America to fail I…I suppose I wouldn’t change a thing.” Sounds about like what will…
