Image of the Day: Biden, Pelosi and Schumer Faceplanted On Jobs in 2021

On the heels of Friday's unsettling jobs report from the Labor Department, we can now judge the performance and promises of Joe Biden and the Pelosi/Schumer Congress against actual reality.  They promised 10.3 million jobs would be created in 2021 if their massive spending and regulation blowout passed, versus 6.3 million jobs if their agenda wasn't passed.  So how did it turn out?  Their agenda was passed, but only 6.1 million jobs were created as the U.S. economy slowed and struggled to recover from the Covid dip, as AEI's Matt Weidinger highlights.  They apparently made things worse, not better, illustrating the sardonic adage, "Don't just do something - stand there."

91 Approaching a Global Warming Agenda Stop Sign, Obama Decides to Floor It

Any toddler who touches a hot stovetop quickly internalizes the necessary lesson and becomes unlikely to repeat the mistake anytime soon.  Apparently, Barack Obama isn’t quite that bright.  Just one week ago, Obama received a proverbial stovetop scalding in the form of Republican Scott Brown’s upset Senate victory in deep-blue…

92 Chavez the Clown Completes Copenhagen Climate Circus

The ongoing United Nations global warming summit in Copenhagen was a circus of the absurd from its inception.  With his triumphant keynote speech to wildly applauding sycophants, however, Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez provided the perfect capstone clown act.  Even without Chavez, of course, the summit was relegated to farcical doom before…

93 ClimateGate in Perspective: The Road Ahead

The global fallout resulting from the scandalous revelations of ClimateGate cannot be overestimated or overstated.  Some of the most prominent scientists promoting climate alarmism are, as evidenced by their own email missives, guilty of unethical, unscientific behavior, at the very least, and possibly much worse. The smoking-gun emails, accumulated…

94 Does Barack Obama Even Comprehend "Climategate?"

"A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be."  ~Albert Einstein  In their longstanding effort to squelch objective debate, climate-change alarmists’ favorite weapon was the allegation of a “scientific consensus” in their favor.  So much for that.  Over the past two weeks,…

95 Lindsey Graham Desperately Tries to Become Cool with Global Warming

Do you ever get the sense that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was the last person to buy bell-bottoms and a Rubik’s Cube in 1983 because he thought it might make him cool?  It’s sad enough that Senator Graham desperately and perpetually seeks acceptance from the effete media class, using transparent “bipartisan” policy…

96 Big Business, Big Liberals

“Big Business hates the environment and supports conservative politicians.” That’s been the typical, politically-expedient refrain sung by liberal politicians and pro-regulation special interests in Washington.  Yet now, with Democrats in charge of both the legislative and executive branches, pushing everything from government…

97 Statism’s Waterloo

If a revolution takes root throughout the country and no one in Washington hears it, does the revolution exist? In our representative system, the answer is yes – and members of both parties ought to start paying attention if they hope to survive the 2010 midterm elections intact. We’ve heard a lot about political sea changes in the past…

98 California’s Utopian Renewable Energy Mandates Already Threatening Power Shortages and Higher Utility Bills

If it’s true that “as California goes, so goes the nation,” Americans should be very afraid.  While Al Gore ridiculously compares his global warming crusade to the battle against Nazism and Congress hastily debates a behemoth 1,200-page climate change bill, recent news from the test laboratory known as the state of California…
