Graham torpedoes cap-and-trade bill rollout.
Because of the Democrats’ decision to make immigration a priority. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) decision to walk away from Senate talks on climate change and energy legislation – at least for now – has prompted the measure’s remaining architects to scuttle Monday’s planned unveiling of the bill.

ICELAND: CAP AND TRADE SANCTIONS!
As a signatory to the Kyoto protocol in 2002, Iceland took a solemn oath to actively reduce dangerous life threatening greenhouse gases emissions.(GHG) (carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulphur hexafluoride).

Senate Cap and Trade Bill Skipping Committee Process-Will Be Drafted Behind Closed Doors
Promoted by Bill S. If you enjoyed the lack of transparency shown by the Senate when crafting their version of Obamacare, you will love the way they plan on crafting the Cap and Trade legislation. Instead of introducing the bill and sending it to committee, future Nevada Senator Emeritus, Harry Reid is taking over the process. Just as he did during the Obamacare process, Reid | Read More »
Big Oil Sell Out?
I don’t know who disgusts me more — Sen. Graham, or the oil companies. Senators consider gasoline tax as part of climate bill Estimates put it in the range of 15 cents a gallon. Some oil companies are on board with the plan because it would cost them far less than other proposals to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Leading voices in the Senate are considering | Read More »

VoteVets- In Bed With Al Gore
Don’t ask; don’t tell. Vote Vets is a lefty organization in bed with Al Gore and promoting the Cap and Trade Bill by showing US Army Humvees getting blown up by Iranian funded I.E.D’s. Vote Vets would have everyone believe that the US military wants Cap and Trade to stop funding Iran and in turn, stop the I.E.Ds. Informed veterans like myself understand that Cap | Read More »
Cap and Trade’s Snake Oil Salesman
Cap and trade is not that complicated. Recently Ag Secretary Vilsack has been out promoting cap and trade and touting its benefits to farmers. Well, let’s look at these benefits that Sec. Vilsack is selling to the American people. Sec.

Obama And The Fish Market Trail – Herring For Sale.
If it walks like a duck and looks like a duck, if it has webbed feet like a duck… chances are it’s not a lobster. At Barack’s friendly fish market, things aren’t very fresh, especially downwind from his magnanimous, friendly, energy offshore drilling pronouncement.

Lindsey Gr-Amnesty, RINO Extraordinaire.
I wish someone would tell me why this character should have a single Republican member of Congress listen to him, much less be influenced by a single word emanating from his smarmy mouth. In his latest essay in treacherous gum beating he’s let it be known that he’ll play deal maker on Guantanamo Bay. Lindsey Graham On Sunday, this cretin actually had the chutzpah to | Read More »
Rick Boucher (D-VA) Is Feeling the Heat
Coming into this election cycle, Rick Boucher was the safest of Democrats. Despite his district’s strong Republican lean, he has been re-elected comfortably in recent years. His district did not even earn a mention on Charlie Cook’s list of races to watch until September, when he first listed it as ‘Likely Democratic.’ It’s become clear recently however, that Rick Boucher is in trouble. His liberal | Read More »
Well, it’s settled. Robin Carnahan supports the largest tax increase in history.
The story begins in April, 2009, when the “League of Conservation Voters” began a $750K campaign to slam Rep. Roy Blunt for his vote against the “Cap and Trade” (or “Cap and Tax”) bill, who repeatedly refers to it by its euphemistic official smokescreen/name: “American Clean Energy & Security Act,” in an attempt to convince Missourians that Blunt is somehow trying to deny jobs in | Read More »
Obama Presidency – Wherefore Art Thou?
We’ve been pretty harsh on our young President. We’ve taken him to task on virtually every word and every item of his agenda… with good reason. Those of us who managed not to be mesmerized by the glitzy rock concert/camp meeting atmosphere that surrounded the unlikely, albeit meteoric, rise of this young first term senator from Illinois were in turn bemused and then alarmed. We | Read More »
NY Times IPCC Alibi Falls Flat
One and a half cheers to the NY Times for the article “Skeptics Find Fault With U.N. Climate Panel,” which admits to some of the scientific and ethical problems facing the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and IPCC head Rajendra Pachauri. But the Times being the Times, while it lays out some of the damning facts, it omits key damaging details (especially regarding the | Read More »
