My column today follows up on yesterday's House Natural Resources Committee release of internal Interior Department Inspector General e-mails detailing the continued White House obstruction and cover-up of Team Obama's drilling moratorium data manufacturing. I've attached relevant e-mails below the column. Note especially the warning from the DOI IG senior agent to his bosses that... Read More
There's "Take Your Daughter to Work Day." Now, here's a clever twist that all GOP politicians who are attending President Obama's Redundant Festival of Failed Spending Orgies should join: "Take an Entrepreneur to Capitol Hill Day." GOP Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee is taking Nashville-based Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz, via the Memphis Daily News:... Read More
Scroll for updates...Obama retreats from multi-billion-dollar EPA ozong regs... Photoshop: Leo Alberti Critics of cypher Barack Obama have been calling him "President Zero" for years. (See here here here here, for example.) Now, the lib media is discovering just how fitting that moniker has been. After today's report of ZERO net job growth, the New... Read More
Since day one of the Obama administration, I've chronicled Loathsome Cowboy Ken Salazar's War on the West, War on Jobs, and War on Science/Rule of Law as head of the Interior Department. His eco-radical sidekick Carol Browner is gone, yet Salazar remains in place. Federal judge after federal judge has spanked Salazar and Obama's job-destroying... Read More

Since day one of the Obama administration, I've chronicled Loathsome Cowboy Ken Salazar's War on the West, War on Jobs, and War on Science/Rule of Law. The last straw was his attempted Wild Lands grab. GOP... Read More
Photoshop credit: Les James The latest Obama Jobs Death Toll report is out today. There's a smidgen of good news mixed in with mostly continuing gloom. In brief: Gallup shows
Eco-radical Carol Browner may no longer be on the Team Obama bus, but her departure has done little to change the culture of corruption -- and contempt -- at 1600 Pennsylvania. As I reported yesterday, federal judge Martin Feldman kicked the administration's ass yet again over its rogue drilling moratorium. My column today zeroes in... Read More
I'll have much more in my syndicated column tomorrow on federal judge Martin Feldman's new ruling on the Obama Interior Department's "determined disregard" for the rule of law. For now, I've obtained and am embedding here the full decision issued yesterday.

Grim reaper photoshop credit: Manly Rash President Obama used the word "jobs" 31 times in his State of the Union Address. Did you add "-killing" under your breath every time he read the word on his teleprompter? Me, too. While Obama was out on the trail filming 2012 campaign ads on the taxpayer's dime, workers...

Newsflash: President Obama has discovered that government mandates hurt job creation. Now, the Regulator-in-Chief has launched a systemic review of federal regulations to hunt down and slay -- er, shall I say "mitigate" instead? -- all those economy-damaging bureaucratic rules: While the Sherlock
How's the Obama Jobs Death Toll today? The official release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics is right here. The lower-than-expected jobless rate officially stands at 9.4 percent, with 103,000 new jobs on the rolls. That's very good news for those back in the work force. But.
Grim reaper photoshop credit: Manly Rash You already knew that the election-season "lifting" of President Obama's deepwater drilling moratorium was a sham announcement. Loathsome cowboy Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and radical eco-czar Carol Browner have lied through their teeth from day one about the rationale and impact of their job-killing policies not only on deepwater...

Yesterday, Senate Democrats dropped their 1,924-page omnibus spending bomb on Capitol Hill. My column today reports on the other omnibus bomb up their sleeves -- a massive omnibus land grab that Dingy Harry Reid vowed yesterday to bring up before the stretched-out lame-duck session ends. It's green pork galore: "Reid's staff sees a natural resources... Read More
On Wednesday, I mentioned several small business owners who explained how the pile-on of state and federal mandates -- including unemployment insurance benefits -- was putting enormous strain on their ability to hire and survive.

Scroll for updates... The deepwater drilling moratorium may have been "lifted" in an election-season feint, but the eco-radicals have already accomplished their mission: Zero drilling permits issued. Today's column spotlights the ideological engine behind the Obama job-killing machine: Carol "The Green Menace" Browner. Update: The Senate Republicans on the Committee on Environment and Public Works... Read More
I've been covering Loathsome Cowboy/job-killer Ken Salazar's ongoing corruption of science and environmental policy at the Interior Department for you extensively here. He has largely escaped mainstream scrutiny. But with a new House GOP majority and independent watch dogs on his tail, he may finally get the lasting ass-kicking he deserves. As you'll recall, Salazar... Read More
My syndicated column today draws on Monday's blog post about the hypocritical new nativists of the Democrat Party playing the America First card against the GOP and Chamber of Commerce.
