New Utah State University Study helps cities budget for Water Main Breaks
New data from Utah State University Buried Structures Laboratory quantifies water main breaks by pipe material type, helping towns and cities across Canada and the U.S. predict their costs in the future. Since their ground breaking study in 2012, Dr. Steve Folkman has found break rates increased 27% in 5 years and even more troublesome, the replacement rate is not keeping up with the deterioration rate.

Businesses Should Avoid Global Warming Politics

Businesses Should Avoid Global Warming Politics
Kinder-Morgan, the nation’s largest midstream energy company, just announced a multi-billion-dollar pipeline project to move two billion cubic feet of natural gas each day from West Texas to Gulf Coast consumers. At the same time, on the other side of the country, a federal judge threw out a climate-related lawsuit against some of the largest oil and gas companies in world.

All this brings to mind two non-binding shareholder resolutions instructing Kinder-Morgan to issue an environmental sustainability report and to assess the risk of climate change policy on its operations.

IER Sues Treasury Department for Public Records of Immediate Public Interest

IER Sues Treasury Department for Public Records of Immediate Public Interest
WASHINGTON – Today the Institute for Energy Research filed an open records lawsuit against the Department of the Treasury relating to continuing efforts in Washington to quietly advance the “climate” industry. This Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks certain, specific records relating to the “climate risk disclosure” campaign begun in 2012 by various activist groups including Ceres and Rockefeller Financial Asset Management and led by disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. That agenda, if implemented, would have immense economic and legal consequences.

Did the Russians Hack the DNC to Help the Left Take Over the Democrats?

Did the Russians Hack the DNC to Help the Left Take Over the Democrats?
The Russia conspiracy theory hinges on the single creaky claim that the Democratic National Committee hacks were a Russian plot to elect Trump. The theory and all its illegitimate stepchildren, including Robert Mueller and his infinitely expanding corps of prosecutors, lives or dies by the DNC hacks.

Trying to elect Trump by releasing damaging insider information from the DNC never made any sense. The DNC was already a dysfunctional organization that was being run by the Clinton campaign. Undermining its leadership had little impact on the election, but a great deal on control of the DNC.

Hillary surrogate Richard Blumenthal: Russian meddling is just like 9/11!

Hillary surrogate Richard Blumenthal: Russian meddling is just like 9/11!
As much as I may try, I can’t share all of it with you. The party that has chosen to embrace socialism is coming completely unglued, and they view every single TV appearance as a chance to launch their particular brand of crazy into American homes.  I do my best to give you what I can, but there’s just so much left-wing hysteria these days that no mere mortal could keep you abreast of everything.

Trump, GOP Congress discussing new round of tax cuts for possible September vote

Trump, GOP Congress discussing new round of tax cuts for possible September vote
If they could get it done, it would be a boon to an already accelerating economy and a boost to their already growing chances of holding the House and building their majority in the Senate.

As a practical political matter, it’s how to see how they get it done, considering that their Senate majority is arguably less than a thread. But a groundswell of public demand for the idea might be enough to bring the usual reluctant Republicans along for the ride, so they’re already talking about what they might do. And it’s ambitious by the standards of today’s political norm, even if it’s not the radical overhaul some of us would really like to see:

Outside the political class, real people give their own money to help a teacher of poor children

Outside the political class, real people give their own money to help a teacher of poor children
There are people in this country who actually have real problems. They don’t use them as an excuse to bash others or to play victim. They just keep their heads down and try to do the best they can.

One such person is Kimberly Bermudez, the 27-year-old teacher of many impoverished children at charter school in Chicago. Recently on a flight to Florida, she was telling a fellow passenger about how difficult the lives of some of her children are – often going hungry or doing without other needs – and how teachers and administrators at the school routinely spend their own money to help with basic necessities for the children.

Constitutional America Is Indeed The Last Stand For Liberty On This Earth!

Constitutional America Is Indeed The Last Stand For Liberty On This Earth!
Many things bear repeating nowadays - everything worthwhile, anyway. Anyone, especially writers/commentators who are sharing their thinking, broadcast, quickly learn that at least two thirds of the audience they last had either weren’t listening or will have forgotten some of what was said by their next appearance. And at their next appearance, two thirds of the crowd will be brand-new. Such is certainly the case on the cyberstreets of the Internet. And that being the case, I need to repeat the following bit of truth. For those who have heard it already, forgive me…

The Sniveling Outbursts of the Lefty Toddler Media

The Sniveling Outbursts of the Lefty Toddler Media
Some years back, during the George W. Bush administration, I remember Dennis Prager explaining the toddler-like hysterics of the left: “If you want to understand the Left, the best place to start is with an understanding of hysteria. Leading leftists either use hysteria as a political tactic or are actually hysterics.”

Flash forward a dozen years to 2018 and it appears that the hysterical left is even more unhinged—think of a hitting, kicking, biting, scratching toddler in a tantrum.

The Truth and nothing but the Truth

The Truth and nothing but the Truth
I don’t think any American Patriot was surprised when the media started running around like their hair was on fire about President Trump’s recent statements. All of the media jumped on the Trump bashing bandwagon. “President Trump made a despicable remark by calling the European Union our foes.” Well, it’s about time somebody told the truth. On top of that, former CIA chief and Marxist, John Brennan, tweeted that, “meeting with Putin is treason, an impeachable offense.”

Sadly, nothing our president has said is false. The European Union isn’t our friend any more than Communist China is. In fact, the European Union is based on Albert Speer’s Europalsche Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft. Translation: European Economic Community.

No, silly Democrats, Trump did not ‘commit treason,’ says . . . the Washington Post?

No, silly Democrats, Trump did not ‘commit treason,’ says . . . the Washington Post?
I’ll say this for the Washington Post. They’re a stunningly dishonest newspaper, but they’re more self-aware than, say, the New York Times in the sense that they know when joining in on the fever pitch of the day will make them look and sound like morons.

Few things (although not no things) are more moronic than the current Beltway hyperventilation that President Trump “committed treason” by not embracing the media narrative on “election meddling” during his joint presser with Vladimir Putin on Monday. The media are gleefully running up to Democrats asking if Trump committed treason, and intellectual superstars like Adam Schiff are only too happy to give them the soundbite they want. It started with former Obama intelligence chief John Brennan, and once you’ve got one “respected” Beltway type saying something, the rest will follow in short order.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: CAPITALISM ‘WON’T ALWAYS EXIST’

OCASIO-CORTEZ: CAPITALISM 'WON'T ALWAYS EXIST'
​Democrat giant-slayer and soon-to-be Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came close to saying she supports abolishing the free enterprise system and the precious economic freedoms on which it is based that have made America wealthy beyond its founders’ wildest dreams.

The so-called democratic socialist Ocasio-Cortez whom DNC Chairman Tom Perez hails as “the future of our party,” breezily dismissed the current strength of the U.S. economy, claiming unemployment is low only because Americans are working two jobs.

Detaining illegal immigrant children counterproductive, expensive

Detaining illegal immigrant children counterproductive, expensive
Hiding behind the detention of children by mischaracterizing the situation as child abuse, the left has gone beyond placing the United States in a precarious position. It has created yet another industry based on waste and fraud. The fraud comes in the form of lying about the woes of incarcerated children in order to bilk the government of hundreds of millions of dollars and anchor illegal aliens within the electorate.

Strange as this sounds, both situations have been documented. Furthering the bogus nature of the “emergency,” businesses and nonprofits have created a burgeoning trade providing shelter for these displaced children by sponging off government, i.e. the taxpayers.

Democrats Spend Heavy on Lie-Filled Ads Early

Democrats Spend Heavy on Lie-Filled Ads Early
In the house and senate races, Democrats are stealthily pouring tons of money early to demonize Republican candidates before our supporters become engaged. Once our candidate has been branded the spawn-of-Satan before campaigning really begins, it is extremely challenging to change voter’s perception of them.

My wife Mary and I are in Montana with the Conservative Campaign Committee working to elect strong conservative Republican Matt Rosendale to the US senate. We’ve been having trouble getting our side engaged because this is only July. Trump is doing well and the general election is months away in November.

John Brennan, former CIA and CNN & MSNBC talking head: “Donald Trump is a Traitor”

John Brennan, former CIA and CNN & MSNBC talking head: Donald Trump is a Traitor
“Donald Trump is a traitor” for meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin - said Obama’s CIA Director whom allegedly converted to Islam as a student in Egypt, and as a adult voted for CPUSA - the Communist Party of the United States that was for decades cooperating, colluding and conspiring to overthrow the government of the United States. They had conspired to advance the interests of Russia only. They were the CPUSA with John Brennan as one of its members, not Donald Trump who was never a member, who committed sedition and treason among others in Barack Obama’s inner circle of friends and associates - including the Clintons.
