Fake support for a free market in energy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

We ought to have an insurance policy against brownouts and blackouts like California has suffered, and other nations as well, because of overdependence on intermittent power sources like wind and solar. We may regret shutting down reliable nuclear or coal plants that can’t be easily powered up again during storms, cold winters, or steamy-hot summer days when we need electricity the most. In the meantime, enough hypocrisy from liberals who lecture us about bailouts and subsidies as if they were Milton Friedman disciples. There is nothing the renewable energy is more horrified of than a genuine free market in energy.

Liberal Vampires Attacking Conservative EPA Director Scott Pruitt

Europe's Lesson Teaches Us: Don't Go Green

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

Thankfully, Donald Trump has made it known that adopting more of the policy quackery of Europe — at a time when the U.S. Has more recoverable shale oil and gas and more clean coal than any other nation on the planet — is no way to make America great again. Europe is running away from the fantasy of green energy, and this is one rare instance when America may want to follow their lead.

The New Congress and Crony Government

Senator Rand Paul is right – it is not the size of government or crony capitalists, but “crony government” that is the problem. Unless Republicans become the party of “limited government” there will be little to entice limited government constitutional conservatives to vote for them again in 2016.

Cronyism, Green Energy and Stupidity

In an act of amazing political stupidity Republican leaders are about to give away billions in taxpayer dollars to fund green energy and other interests that just spent millions trying to defeat the new Republican majority.
