Stephen Bannon, Trump Pravda, and the death of a free press

Allow me to take you back to June, 2013. It was a time of great frustration in our nation’s capitol as the Washington Elite, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Chuck Schumer, grappled with an issue that Graham called…

Multiculturalism and Obama’s neutrality causing rise of radical Islam

Killing Coal: Obama’s intentional assault on cheap energy

By now, most people are aware of President Obama’s 2008 campaign promise to bankrupt the coal industry—which he acknowledged would “necessarily” cause electricity to skyrocket. Seven years later, that is a campaign promise he is keeping. Since moving into the…

January 2016: the U.S. becomes a global energy superpower

Environmentalists like a good crisis. Spreading fear is a proven fundraising technique—with manmade climate change as the fear du jour. But, back in 2005, the “looming crisis,” according to the Kansas Sierra Club, was the end of cheap oil. The…

Greenies introduce climate theology to evangelicals, aim to tip climate politics

Shaking out the lies surrounding earthquakes and hydraulic fracturing

The Great ShakeOut, the annual “PrepareAthon” that advocates earthquake readiness, took place across the globe on October 15, at 10:15 AM—10/15 @10:15. Unless you have a child in a participating school, the “Ready Campaign” may have passed without your awareness. I grew up in Southern California, where earthquakes were so routine, we paid them no mind; we didn’t have earthquake drills. But that was then. Now, the Great ShakeOut is a global campaign. Now, Oklahoma has more earthquakes than California—and students in Oklahoma participated on 10/15 at 10:15. As if choreographed, Oklahomans had a reminder 4.5 earthquake just days before the drill. The anti-fossil crowd has declared the cause. Headlines claim: “Confirmed: Oklahoma Earthquakes Caused By Fracking” and “New study links Oklahoma earthquakes to fracking.” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow gleefully teased the earthquakes in Oklahoma as “the story that might keep you up at night.” On her October 16 show, she stated that Oklahoma’s earthquakes are: “The terrible and unintended consequence of the way we get oil and gas out of the ground. …from fracking operations.” Yet, when her guest, Jeremy Boak, Oklahoma Geological Survey Director, corrected her, “it’s not actually frackwater,” she didn’t change her tune. Despite the fact that […]

Goodbye, Columbus, hello Montezuma: PC attempt to rewrite history

The Denver plain clothes cop said “Congressman Tancredo, are you aware of all the threats on your life at this event?” I responded, “You mean more than usual?” At that point he reached into a back pack he had placed on the ground and pulled out about a dozen .223 caliber shells that were taped together. He had my attention. Apparently the shells and been taped inside a trash can on the route of the parade that I was to be in and that was about to get underway. It was a Columbus Day Parade and the American Indian Movement (AIM) had promised to disrupt it after their failed attempt to get the city of Denver to cancel the permit. Well, Russell Means, who was the head of AIM, and his cohorts did their best to stop the event and things did get violent – but the parade went on. Toward the end we were halted because of the vandalism and street fighting that was a block ahead of us. While we stood there I noticed a girl of about 16 who was standing on the curb glaring at me. She had a bundle of rags in her arms. She stepped off the curb and started to […]

Beyond the bickering, bill lifting oil-export ban wins bipartisan support

Americans are sick of the bickering in Washington and want both parties to cooperate and get something done. Friday, October 9, offered proof that this can still happen. The house passed H.R. 702, the bill to lift the decades old oil export ban—with 26 Democrats joining the majority of Republicans and voting for it. Republicans could have passed the bill without the Democrats—but there are strategic reasons why it was important to include Democrats. And, getting them on board didn’t happen naturally—especially since two days before the vote the White House issued a veto threat in the form of a “Statement of Administrative Policy.” It says: “Legislation to remove crude export restrictions is not needed at this time.… If the President were presented with H.R. 702, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.” Twenty-six Democrats went against the wishes of the president and voted with the Republicans—but the number should have been much higher. Getting the companion bill through the Senate will be a heavy lift as the Republicans hold a slim majority. Because of the threat, a veto-proof majority will be needed in the Senate. The Washington Post reported: “the measure still faces a Senate that […]

America didn’t lose her greatness – It was decapitated

The Bloomberg Politics Poll has published the results of a survey that asked people which presidential candidate can best recover “America’s lost greatness.”  Are we surprised that 72 percent of Americans believe our nation is not as great as it used to be? I am more surprised that 26 percent have managed to sleep through the last fifty years. Unfortunately, the Bloomberg survey tells us nothing important about candidates’ knowledge of how we lost that greatness. Was it stolen, abandoned or bartered away? What the poll really tells us is that we are deeply divided over what makes a great nation, and anyone not hypnotized by Obama’s post-constitutional globalism already knows that. In truth, our greatness was not lost. After being slandered, belittled and undermined by three generations of progressives, it was then decapitated by Obama’s “transformative politics” — with the help of Obama’s ideological soulmates in the media. Today, patriots feel like strangers in an increasingly strange land, living in a place which barely resembles “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” It is no wonder voters are flocking to a candidate who at least talks about “making America great again.” And yet, something is missing from […]

Not all energy is created equal

Congress has taken action that actually advances free markets and limits government intrusion. I was in the room when, on September 17, the House Energy and Commerce Committee—with bipartisan support—advanced legislation to lift the 1970s-era ban on crude-oil exports. HR 702, “To adapt to changing crude oil market conditions,” is expected to receive a full floor vote within a matter of weeks. The export ban is a relic of a bygone era during which ideas like “peak oil” and “energy scarcity” were the conventional wisdom. Despite all those who cried “wolf,” the U.S. is now the world’s largest combined oil-and-gas producer. Ending this obsolete ban would unleash America’s energy producers on the global market, increasing domestic production and creating jobs. Additionally, reports from experts at the non-partisan Energy Information Administration and Government Accountability Office, plus consultants at IHS, indicate that it will also lower prices at the pump. Like everything that seems to happen in Washington, DC, these days, this initial victory may have a price tag that prevents its final passage. Getting the Democrats on board with removing the barrier to exporting America’s abundance may likely require giving them something they want. Morning Consult recently reported: “Momentum is building […]

Supporters of Iran deal should stand with Israel and lift the U.S. oil export ban

“Whether you support this deal or not, we can all agree that America’s commitment to Israel remains unshakeable. And we will continue—Democrats and Republicans united—to stand with Israel,” says a statement from Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI). Yet, despite widespread opposition from Israel and pro-Israel groups, Schatz, and almost all his fellow Jewish Senators and Representatives, supported the Iran nuclear deal that appears to be done. Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), on September 10, announced: “There’s no doubt whatsoever that the Congress of the United States will allow this agreement to go forward.” Despite “a nearly $30 million advertising and lobbying effort to kill the accord,” the New York Times (NYT) reports, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee—known as Aipac—suffered a “stinging defeat.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes the deal will fuel Iran’s efforts to destroy Israel, calling it: “A stunning historic mistake.” Addressing Israel’s “diplomatic failure,” the NYT states: “Polls show that large majorities of Israeli Jews agree with him [Netanyahu] on Iran and deeply distrust President Obama.” Polling within the U.S. reflects similar attitudes here at home: “The American people overwhelmingly oppose this agreement.” Republican pollster John McLaughlin, and Pat Caddell, a Democratic pollster, have conducted four national […]

America should say no to Syrian refugees!

When President Obama and John Kerry suggest taking 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016, 90 percent of them Muslim and many of them jihadist sympathizers– really, it’s not that hard to say not today; not ever. Just say no. In fact, say HELL NO! Why is there even a debate on the matter? Yes, the flood of refugees fleeing Syria is a humanitarian tragedy of historic proportions. However, these are not refugees from a terrible hurricane, a volcano eruption, or a tsunami tidal wave. These 4,000,000 are refugees from a civil war made intractable and horrific by an Islamist insurrection called the Islamic State, or ISIS. The refugees are a product of the same war that victimized 3,000 Americans on that beautiful September morning in 2001. Unlike the Vietnam boat people or Cuban refugees after Castro came to power, the U.S. has no moral responsibility for the chaos in Syria. In fact, just the opposite is the case. Is it really such a novel idea that refugees from a Middle East civil war should be resettled in the Middle East, not Europe and America? And there is another fundamental question our politicians are not asking. Let’s ask if it meets a […]
