Another Offshore Wind Project in Trouble

Cape Wind, off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts is in trouble trying to find buyers for its high cost electricity. But Cape Wind isn’t the only offshore wind project in dire straits. Now, an offshore wind project 13 miles off the Delaware coast is in jeopardy because of possible federal budget cuts and a lack of sufficient buyers for viability. Further, utilities in Georgia, who had been considering offshore wind projects, have determined that the cost is too high.

Taking yourself out of the Mug’s game

imageThe incomparable Canada Free Press columnist (CFP) Lawrence Sellin advises patriots to “keep your powder dry”.  Sound advice from a hero with 29 years in the military under his belt,  particularly if it comes with “keep your eye on the big picture”.

Keeping your powder dry and being able to perceive the big picture is the best recipe for survival of the masses.

Dire warnings that the American dollar will soon collapse are almost three long years old.

Those sending out the alarm that the elite plan to round the masses up for life behind barbed wire fences in government-run, FEMA like camps, overlook the reality that captivity is not in patriot DNA.

Ireland Open for Business

Toronto, ON—Canadians have many more reasons to visit the island of Ireland this year other than a strong Canadian dollar thanks to the Irish government’s new tourism initiative.

The tax (VAT) charged on tourism-related goods and services has now been reduced from 13.5 percent to 9 per cent, which will lead to cheaper prices for travellers on restaurant and catering services, hotel and vacation accommodation, and various entertainment services such as admissions to cinemas, theatres, museums, fairgrounds, amusement parks and sporting facilities.

DC Libs Happy to Sign Petition Banning Conservative’s Free Speech

The left is always a bundle of contradictions. On one hand leftists set themselves up as the ultimate in “tolerance” and a guarantor of “freedom” to do as one wishes. Most leftists imagine themselves interested in making sure everyone is free to do as they wish to the point where that they are almost libertine about it. Until… until it comes to the freedoms of those they oppose. Then, all of a sudden, their tendency toward fascist group-think comes out in full force.

The regime’s insane energy policy!

With President Obama in re-election mode, the Bilderberg media won’t ask appropriate and direct questions that beg to be asked.  Because many within the GOP are Progressive-lites, it is up to TEA party members of Congress and each of us to expose the insanity of the regime’s energy policy!

Mosher, China expert and president of the Population Research Institute, “if this is true (which we at PRI believe it to be based on our own research in China), then this act represents a serious human rights violation and a clear instance of human trafficking.”
