Photoshop: Leo Alberti It's not just what's in the bill. It's the way they rammed it through the House. Just like the porkulus: Under-handed, transparency-defying, and stuffed with earmark payoffs and bribes concocted in middle-of-the night, backroom deals. Taxpayers are mad again. And they're not going to sit still. Impromptu flash protests are taking place... Read More

My syndicated column below slams the EPA for suppressing inconvenient truths about Obama's politicized global warming agenda. As I blogged early Wednesday afternoon, the Competitive Enterprise Institute released e-mails detailing how eco-bureaucrats stifled a senior researcher who challenged the agency's reliance on outdated data to support its greenhouse gas "public endangerment" finding.
