We Need a New American Understanding of Energy

America's energy revolution has changed the global landscape. The U.S. has surpassed all expectations and achieved a level of domestic energy production that was unthinkable even five years ago. We are now the number one producer of oil and natural gas. Instead of importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) to supply our own power needs, we're now moving to support our allies overseas as an exporter of LNG and possibly even crude oil.

Here Comes the 2014 Midterm Electiozzzzzz

Those of us who closely follow politics would do well to remember that most Americans are turned off and tuned out - especially in this midterm election year. And that's a symptom of a seriously sick democracy.

Border Surge - It’s Not About Crime and Violence

There is a simple means to determine whether the surge of Central Americans illegally crossing our border is, as the Obama administration maintains, a result of high crime rates and gang violence, or if, as the Guatemalan ambassador said, "Violence is not the reason," but instead they are economic migrants "trying to reach the American dream." Look at a map.

What To Do About the Border Crisis

Despite what politicians say, the border crisis is not an immigration problem or a border security problem. We've got all those problems, but this ain't that. These kids-these tired, poor, huddled masses-are not economic migrants. They-these homeless, tempest tossed to us-are seeking refuge from violent gangs and corrupt cops in Central America. If we deal with the problem that exists instead of having the fight politicians want, then we can do some good.

End Torture, Shut Down the CIA

Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, "we don't torture people"? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, "this government does not torture people"? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier.

No Inflation? Another Liberal Lie

Paul Krugman, liberal New York Times columnist and economist whose erroneous predictions and inflammatory opinions have inspired websites, blogs and columns by others detailing his multitude miscalculations, launched a Buk missile of a column at conservatives warning of inflationary government policies.

T-Minus 28 Months and Counting

Bust out the gin and tonics because this is shaping up to be one heck of a long hot summer. Weather-wise and politics-wise. All over the world, hostilities are flaring like out of control wildfires. While here at home, it's the words that have grown from fiery to scalding. And the only way to describe the actions- incendiary.

Strangers at Our Door A Crisis for American Christians

In the words of Pope Francis, America is experiencing a "humanitarian emergency." Fleeing instability and violence in Central America, a human tide of thousands of refugees, many of them unaccompanied children, has been flooding across our southern border.

We Can't Leave These Men Behind

The situation on Texas' southern border is not the only refugee crisis facing the United States. Thousands of Afghan interpreters who need to get out before the Taliban kills them for collaborating with U.S. troops are stuck over there because the State Department has run out of visas. Make no mistake, this is a test of our national character: These men risked their lives to help us bring democracy to Afghanistan, but they might die because our government doesn't work.

Republicans are Stuck on Stuck

"Just following the will of the people." That's been the GOP rationalization for accomplishing absolutely nothing for five and a half years. Doesn't matter what the issue is. Immigration. Jobs. Infrastructure. Climate change. Banking reform. The proliferation of substandard dental schools in Nebraska.
