I’m not expecting much from the State of the Union address tonight. We’ll hear a lot of platitudes and cherry-picked statistics, but nothing meaningful in terms of policy or vision.
If you’re inclined to tune in to President Biden’s remarks tonight, I’d invite you to keep these facts in the back of your mind:
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: 4.5 million people have illegally crossed our southern… Read more »
We need to talk about how utterly foolish this President’s energy policies are. Here’s the headline from Sunday: “Biden gives Chevron permit to restart Venezuelan oil sales.”
Let’s unpack this a little.
Americans are paying 17.5% more for gasoline over the last year. Fuel oil (used for heating) is up 68.5%. Total energy costs are up 17.6%. These numbers are directly from the U.S.… Read more »
On Tuesday, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) led 11 Members of the House of Representatives in a letter formally calling on President Biden to address allegations concerning potential unlawful activity in the sale of crude oil from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve to a Chinese company with financial ties to the President’s son, Hunter Biden.
“It has come to our… Read more »
There comes a point where things are so messed up, that nothing surprises us anymore. That’s where we find ourselves under liberal leadership on so many issues, especially energy policy.
Did you hear the latest on some of our Strategic Petroleum Reserves being sold off to foreign countries, including China?
Managed by the federal government, our Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) is a… Read more »
Few people understand the ~massive~ environmental damage we face if Biden and far-left Democrats get their way on fossil fuels. After all, for years they’ve told us for the sake of “Mother Earth” and our very existence, we must eliminate fossil fuels and embrace clean energy.
The problem is that replacing fossil fuels with solar, wind, and hydro will require colossal quantities of solar… Read more »
On Wednesday, House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) and Subcommittee on the Environment Ranking Member Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) probed the White House’s involvement in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) draft policy that would place significant barriers within the natural gas pipeline permitting… Read more »
There’s only one job where you can get away with causing a massive crisis, denying you caused it, pretending to fix it but not really, and then trying to shift blame to anyone else but yourself.
That job is being a Democrat president.
Yesterday I took an earlier flight to D.C. to participate in a special hearing at the Heritage Foundation on inflation and skyrocketing energy prices… Read more »
New day, new record. Do I think President Biden is solely responsible for this? No, his policies are a major ingredient, but not the whole recipe. There are other global factors in play as well.
But given what he can control, has this President acted in the best interest of the American people? Has he done what he can to keep our fuel prices from skyrocketing?
ABSOLUTELY NOT. In… Read more »
“What’s your solution, Ralph?” I get that question all the time, especially when I talk about wasteful spending in Congress and our $30 trillion in federal debt.
Friends, our nation is heading for financial ruin. I’m so tired of being asked to vote “yes” on new spending bills with no offsets. I’m tired of bloated, wasteful government. I’m tired of agency heads who claim they can't do… Read more »
This is more aggravating than a diagonal speed bump. Check this out:
From multiple news outlets this morning, we’re learning that the Biden Administration is quietly trying to figure out how to increase oil imports from Canada.
Friends, this is the President who ended development of the Keystone XL pipeline on DAY ONE of his administration. In fact, he literally campaigned on… Read more »
