Now that the ObamaCare repeal is off the table, at least in the near future, the left has to find other things to whine about.

Politicians have set their sights, near term, on the upcoming supreme Court vote. The Senate leadership wants Judge Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s pick for the high court, to be confirmed prior to Easter recess.

Oops. Was I allowed to say “Easter?” It is probably a trigger word.

While Democrat politicians are wrapped up in trying to derail the Gorsuch confirmation, other leftists (and there are plenty to go around) are focused on Trump’s recent Executive Order (EO) to put an end to Obama’s worthless “Clean Power Plan.”

Late last week, our old buddy, the self-avowed communist, Van Jones, wrote a piece for CNN entitled, “Trump may have signed Earth’s death warrant.”

Yes – with the stroke of his presidential pen, Donald Trump signed Earth’s death warrant. That sounds reasonable. Nothing hyperbolic about that declaration. read more

New EPA Rules Are Not about Climate, Just about Limiting

You may have noticed gas prices cratering again, which is great news for individual consumers, but another bad sign for the overall economy. As much as I like filling up for a lot less, it’s less of a pleasure knowing that the price isn’t coming down because things are going so well. It’s the opposite. But still, the relatively low price does help.

However, the Obama administration doesn’t appear to feel the same regarding energy. He and his minions would prefer to drive the cost up, regardless of how much it hurts us. And what better way to achieve this goal than through the EPA and the threat of global warming. And son of a gun, they found a new target – methane.

Okay, it’s not new, but it has become the target du jour. ThinkProgress writes that, “Regulating Carbon dioxide, by far the most common greenhouse gas, is critical to halt the emissions that cause climate change. But methane is a very close second, and for the first time, the federal government is moving to significantly rein in methane pollution.”

However, they appear to have given up on sequestering cow farts, at least for now, as, “The Obama administration released a proposed rule Tuesday to regulate methane emissions from new and modified oil and gas wells across the country. How much? It’s complicated.”

Of course it’s complicated – the government is involved.

Naturally environmentalist wacko groups are thrilled with the decision to further crush the American economy and put still more energy workers on the ever-growing unemployment roles. read more
