6-4-17 How to destroy/save our freedom, free enterprise, and our energy industries

Different Subjects, Same Tactics The left's tactics have some things in common, most notably that their absence of traditional values leads to conviction that, "The End Justifies The Means". So, we urge our readers to abandon the naive reaction in response to enviro-activism, anti-oil and gas, anti-development, anti-job creation, anti-government growth, anti-government waste, anti-border protection, anti-Trump, anti-capitalism, anti-Christian leftist action that, "Gee, I wonder why they would do that!" Instead, our critically thinking readers should be observing, "Today they are attacking 'xyz' as the newest way to kill capitalism, [...]

Thus, his current enterprises [...]

4-4-17 The ‘Climate Change’ Farce Becomes More and More Apparent

From our friends at American Energy Alliance: Trust us. This isn't an anomaly. Inside Sources (3/30/17) reports: “Conservatives for Clean Energy seems like a right-leaning environmental group. After all, it has conservative in the name and its website praises “choice and competition” for providing benefits for consumers. Its website explains that the group “educates the public on the benefits of clean and renewable energy sources.” But is the group in fact more green than red? Despite its free market trappings, Conservatives for Clean Energy has financial ties to major [...]
