Abundant Energy Supply Strangled by Environmentally-Driven Regulations, EPA, Obama

The Committee on Energy and Commerce convened on March 25, 2014 to hear testimony on H.R. 6, the “Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act,” introduced by Rep. Cory Gardner. This bill was precipitated by the Energy Information Administration’s statement that “America’s natural gas has been raising since 2006. EIA projects such increases to continue through 2040, and expects domestic production of natural gas to remain well above domestic demand.”

Russia’s 2014 return to the Soviet Union-inspired Communist takeover of neighbouring nations would only be a Vladimir Putin pipe dream were it not for sneaky Comrade Barack Obama, who’s Putin’s largely hidden but chief enabler.

Israel: Recommendations for the Defense Budget Debate

The Israeli government and the Knesset are responsible for the defense budget, but their ability to hold in-depth deliberations on the issue is limited. The debate is conducted against the backdrop of the traditional dispute between the Finance Ministry and the Defense Ministry concerning the size of the defense budget, with each side attempting to bolster its arguments by highlighting particular data. For this reason, a decision was made to establish a new committee to examine the defense budget, headed by Major General (res.) Yohanan Locker.

Obama’s Foreign Policy Failures Lead to Disaster at UN

This article by Anne Bayefsky originally appeared on FOX News.

President Obama’s hemorrhaging foreign policy is creating an increasingly embarrassing mess at the United Nations.

Clouds on the solar horizon

They may search for the best price, only to discover, as customers in central Florida did, that after paying $20,000-40,000 for their systems, they are stuck with installations that may be unusable or unsafe. BlueChip Energy—which also operated as Advanced Solar Photonics (ASP) and SunHouse Solar—sold its systems at environmental festivals and home shows. Buyers thought they were getting a good deal and doing the right thing for the environment. Instead, they were duped.

Where You Can Buy Health Insurance After Today

Today is kinda-sorta the deadline to sign up for ObamaCare, though if you want to say you’re “in line” for coverage, the administration is okay with that. (If your state is running its own ObamaCare exchange, it may be keeping its deadline firm, so check with your state.)

5 rules for a happy life

If you know me at all, you know where I’ll be today, so for the most part Rob will be taking the reins. (Although I wouldn’t be surprised if he finds a way to show up at the game too. That’s what you get on this particular day when you rely on two Detroiters for your material.)

Emerging Consensus that LBJ Killed JFK?

More than a thousand of books have been written on the John F. Kennedy assassination, yet there remains much controversy as to what happened that day in Dallas. To the casual observer, the Warren Commission’s narrative of three shots in six seconds by a lone gunman may appear to be plausible.
