One Step Toward Energy Independence (And Three Steps Back)
The emotional appeal of the New Green Economy rests on its promise to free us from our addiction to oil. Our carbon-free future envisions a land of Rainbows, Unicorns and Magic Windmills, with a Prius in every garage. Our energy will be as free as the wind; no more will our thirst for petroleum make us slaves to foreign regimes. There’s just one hitch. Green | Read More »

Made in China
Like most young conservatives in the United States I spent the past weekend at CPAC. Nearly every booth had some great handout, from key chains, to bottle openers, to books, but my favorite – a stress ball in the shape of the Capitol dome. One can’t help but look at the Capitol and be filled with a patriotic pride. A sense of awe at the | Read More »
Who Owns Who? Do We Anger The Chinese or Mortally Terrify Them?
For a while there, I was just about ready to completely give up on Peggy Noonan. I think she had spent too many years flying around defending George W. Bush. After Harriet Myers, Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Iraq and Katrina, it may well have been that her arms had gotten tired. Today, she offered further indications that she had reacquired her groove. She may not miss | Read More »

Will PIGS Fly?
Reporter: “So Shaq, have you been to The Parthenon?” Shaquille O’Neill: “No, I’ve been staying out of the clubs to focus on my game.” It would be easy to make fun of Shaq over his lack of knowledge of European History. He seems particularly uninterested in the traditions and folklore of Ancient Athens. Give the modern Hellenic economy two more years; and he may be | Read More »

“Life and Death in America” – Will We Learn From History’s Voices?
I love Rush, Ann, Glenn, and Dinesh, but nothing beats history for giving us a glimpse of things to come if radical Democrats are left unchecked. It is with absolutely no apology that I post more from Nien Cheng’s book, Life and Death in Shanghai. “One day, I was told by one of my remaining students besides Da De that Zhang Chunquiao, the Party boss | Read More »
Asia one more area Obama has failed to engage
I have been working with Joshua Treviño as an editor at Malaysia Matters (a site dedicated to tracking news and events in Malaysia from an American perspective). In this role, I have learned a great deal about the importance of Asia economically and strategically. Building on that, I have an article at the Huffington Post highlighting an issue that you might not be aware of | Read More »

Greentech hurts poor people, pollutes land.
Business as usual, in other words. Remember, it doesn’t count if it’s not impacting the First World: Some of the greenest technologies of the age, from electric cars to efficient light bulbs to very large wind turbines, are made possible by an unusual group of elements called rare earths. The world’s dependence on these substances is rising fast. Just one problem: These elements come almost | Read More »

While Americans are fixated on the weekend blizzard and the health care debate, the rest of the world is fixated on the disastrous “climate change” talks in Copenhagen.More importantly, though world leaders could not agree on much of anything significant, they could all agree on one thing: Barack Obama screwed up a delicate situation and unintentionally sunk the deal.For a man who is supposed to | Read More »
The Chinese Have Voted No on ObamaCare
Now that Senator Reid apparently has the 60 votes he needs for cloture, and it looks certain that the “health care reform” (sic) Bill will pass the Senate, there is an interesting development that is passing almost unnoticed. And it may make the passage of the Bill completely moot in the long-run. The Chinese government yesterday made what may be the most definitive and important | Read More »
