    A Principled Argument Dooms Chaffetz’s Internet Gaming Ban Legislation

    Utah is one of two states in America that have no legalized form of gambling — and they want to keep it that way. When Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 80% (R-Utah) introduced legislation on behalf of Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson to outlaw the ability of states to legalize Internet gambling, he cited Utah’s opposition to gaming as one of his | Read More »

    Register that Lawn Mower

    The Environmental Policy Alliance has released a new ad detailing the absurdity of new Environmental Protection Agency rules that will outlaw everyday activities like cutting your grass.  It is worth your time. Under communist-rule in Romania, citizens were expected to register their typewriters to ensure anyone writing material against the state could be tracked.  It appears that we are heading down a similar track but | Read More »

    Hillary Clinton Not Only Email Scandal in Town

    The Hillary Clinton email scandal is not the only game in town.  A new report by the the Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal),  entitled Private Interests & Public Office: Coordination Between Governors, the Obama White House and the Tom Steyer-“Founded and Funded” Network of Advocacy Groups to Advance the “Climate” Agenda (and an appendix of source documents), reveals a vast, coordinated, three-track effort by public officials and | Read More »

    I Want to Like Marco Rubio — But I Can’t

    I want to like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% (R-Florida). In fact, I want to love him. I want to support him for president. I thought his debate performance was magnificent.

While Rubio might have | Read More »

    Solyndra in Spanish Means Abengoa

    The desire of the Obama administration to fund green energy project extends well beyond our borders.  Abengoa, a Spanish company, was the recipient of more than $2.8 billion in taxpayer loans and grants making them the second largest recipient of the $16 billion doled out by the Department of Energy’s 1705 loan guarantee program.  Abengoa is now collapsing before our naked steaming eyes and no one | Read More »

    Corruption in ObamaCare Exchanges

    A corruption scandal has hit the Obamacare exchanges.  States are trying to keep federal money that was given to them to set up exchanges that failed. The federal taxpayers are bailing out bad decisions of state lawmakers and federal ObamaCare officials. Like dominos tumbling over, the state Obamacare exchanges have failed one after the other.  These exchanges were built with over $5 billion in federal | Read More »

    The Constitution Has a Heartbeat

    All too often we find the Constitution kicked to the curb, stomped upon and left for dead but a new decision by the D.C. Court of Appeals shows it still might have a heartbeat. At issue is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the crown jewel of liberal governance. The agency, created by the Dodd Franks financial reform bill, is one like no other.  Shielded | Read More »

    Grassley Plants Seeds for Corporate Cronyism

    Science has proven that ethanol is bad for your engine.   Ethanol creates more smog than using regular gasoline.  Ethanol reduces the fuel efficiency of your car and the government’s fuel mandates are hurting the poor as farmers make more money converting food to fuel than growing food to feed people.  There is not much to love about ethanol, unless you are the Senator from | Read More »

    Billionaires Use Environmental Movement to Profit Handily

    From Tom Steyer to Nat Simons, billionaires have hijacked the environmental movement to line their own pockets. Hedge funds and billionaire investors with a line into government contracts, grants and loan guarantees have built relations with these lobby groups to influence government to ensure taxpayer largess flows to the green industries which they are invested in.  A new report by the Energy & Environment Legal Institute | Read More »
