Cap & Trade Returns From the Grave

Kimberley A. Strassel, the astute columnist for the Wall Street Journal, wrote a revealing piece on Friday titled “Cap and Trade Returns From the Grave.”   She points out that Obama, in his State of the Union address, made it appear that he was moving to the middle on energy and environmental policies.  Her reaction: Snort.

Next Steps to Repeal Obamacare? As Many as it Takes.

The House of Representatives yesterday, by a 245-189 vote, passed landmark legislation for the repeal of the governmental overreach known as Obamacare. Votes in favor included three Democrats, although Virginia’s Dems voted “nay”.   It may help to take time for a call or note to those who have honored well-considered campaign promises. We should [...]

What Wednesday, 11/3/10 Will YOU Elect?

We will awaken the morning of Wednesday, November 3rd to the consequences of our individual decisions, and I’m not talking about the decision we make in the polling booth. I’m talking about the decision we make regarding our [...]

Supreme Statism: EPA Over All

In its statist, bureaucratic and "best and brightest" attempt to insert itself (without Congressional authority) into the climate change scare, the EPA declared in 2009 that carbon dioxide (what you exhale and plants absorb) is a danger to public health. This unprecedented power grab will result in the EPA governing - and draining wealth from [...]

Murkowski Resolution Scheduled for June 10th Vote

Thank you to everyone who has contacted Senators Webb and Warner in support of the Murkowski resolution that would override the EPA’s attempt to backdoor Cap and Trade (tax) by circumventing the legislative process. Our sources are telling us that the resolution is getting good bipartisan support: 41 senators already, including Webb. True to form, [...]

Save Virginia: Make Something

Let's talk about economics. In fact, let's call this Econ 101. But I'm not an economist, so this is a layman's view. The first part of this essay is preaching to the choir for Tea Partiers, but it's important to the later parts, so bear with me. In order for wealth to be available for [...]

Senator Murkowski’s Resolution Needs Our Support

I’ve just been informed of the following: Sen. Murkowski negotiated an agreement with Sen. Reid last night to extend the privilege status of her disapproval resolution until June 10. The vote on whether the EPA should regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act is now expected to occur that Thursday. The disapproval resolution needs [...]

The American Power (Grab) Act

I mentioned in my Thursday post about Senator Murkowski’s EPA resolution that this was happening because the legislative process for cap and trade (tax) has failed. So far. A person posted an accurate comment that a new version of cap and trade has been introduced called the “American Power Act” that you need to be [...]

More on Stopping Cap and Trade

I want to follow up on Jamie’s post yesterday about the pending Cap and Trade resolution scheduled for next week. Because the Senate has been unable to pass legislation on this, the EPA is preparing to simply regulate CO2 on their own without a single vote or word of input from you. Senator Murkowski, though, [...]
