Bill Clinton: Stuck 2,000 Years in the Past on Coal

31, Jul

By Katie Kieffer

Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton keeps telling coal workers to move on from the life “you had 50 years ago”—while his wife Hillary shouts, “I believe in science!” But isn’t it interesting that the “science” to which they cling is 2,000 years out-of-date?

Greek mathematician Hero of Alexandria invented the original windmill, a machine that harnessed wind for energy sometime around 50 AD. Do the math. 2016 minus 50 is 1,966—meaning windmill power is not “new” or “progressive” but a relic of 2,000 years ago. Continue reading

Hillary’s Secret Garden Poisons Millennials

02, May

By Katie Kieffer

Hillary_with_Millennial-2

Hillary Clinton is working alongside billionaire Tom Steyer to sow a garden of climate change paranoia. Clinton is scaring young voters into supporting her campaign by leading them to believe that a Republican president will unleash a climate apocalypse.

Calling Millennial voters the 2016 presidential election’s “biggest cohort,” Steyer announced his plan last Monday to inject $25 million into targeting young voters. Specifically, Steyer will allocate millions toward an aggressive ground campaign based on climate alarmism. The goal? Getting the youth vote out for Clinton. Continue reading

Santa Baby, Bring Me Coal

14, Dec

By Katie Kieffer

I want coal for Christmas, and not because I’ve been a naughty girl. I want coal so I can most affordably power up the high-tech toys Santa is bringing me, including an electronic butler who cleans and cooks and a modern, coal-fired steam locomotive that will allow me to bypass the TSA Snooper Troopers when I travel cross-country.

OK, so Santa probably won’t be sending a full-size coal-fired train down my chimney. But, like many of you, I may receive small electronics as gifts. As millions of us ring in the New Year by adding new gadgets to the power grid, we’ll need ample electricity to fire-up our cutting edge smartphones, sound systems and gaming consoles.

God is Wrong if EPA is Right

28, Sep

By Katie Kieffer

God “saw all the things that he had made and they were very good” yet EPA policies imply God’s creation, especially CO2-exhaling humans, is very bad. Who’s right?

Today, I’ll use science to prove God right and the EPA wrong in its war on men—and the energy, safety and jobs men extract from refining natural resources like coal and oil. Continue reading

“Environmentalists” Kill Millions of Cats and Birds

17, Aug

By Katie Kieffer

Cat in a tree.

President Obama owns two adorable dogs, Bo and Sunny. Clearly, he likes animals. So, it’s puzzling why his administration supports global environmental polices and federally-subsidized energy technology that endangers animals like cats and birds. Continue reading

Murder on the Merriment Express

23, Feb

By Katie Kieffer


Like a king cobra on speed, the CSX oil train cut through the falling snow and rolled along the tracks at 33 m.p.h.—transporting 3 million gallons of highly-flammable crude. But the convoy was a poor match for its cargo. At 1:20 p.m. Eastern time on February 16—35 miles outside of Charleston, West Virginia—the 109-car train derailed.

Fireballs sliced through the cold air; a house was leveled in flames; hundreds of home owners lost electricity and drinking water; and a Kanawha River tributary oozed with oil. One man told the Los Angeles Times that the spill emanated heat like an “atomic bomb.” Continue reading

Gov. Kitzhaber: Standing By His Woman, Killing His Career

16, Feb

By Katie Kieffer


Come over here, she beckoned, Let me whisper in your ear. If you make me first lady and hire me as “clean energy adviser,” I’ll ignore the 20 years between us.

Last Friday afternoon, 67-year-old Gov. John Kitzhaber (D-Oregon) announced his resignation. He and his 47-year-old clean energy consultant/lover Cylvia Hayes will no longer be taking romantic strolls through the manicured gardens of Mahonia Hall. Nor will they be engaging in late-night pillow talk sessions on “energy” at the Tudor-style governor’s mansion. Continue reading

Why Farmers Need Keystone XL

15, Sep

By Katie Kieffer


It’s harvest time! But oil shipments out of the Bakken are causing dangerous and costly rail delays for farmers.

The oil boom in the Northern Plains is a boon to the U.S. economy, creating thousands of jobs and increasing our supply of American energy. With nearly 3 million Americans out of work, the Bakken is like a pool of cool water in an arid desert. Continue reading

One Year of Fracking in CO Creates More Jobs than Obama’s Entire Economy Has for Millennials

21, Jul

By Katie Kieffer


Fracking in the state of Colorado during the year 2012 created 111,000 jobs whereas Barack Obama’s entire economy has only generated 110,000 jobs for Millennials since 2007.

What is wrong with our president? Does he suffer from a migraine headache or is he simply refusing to think straight? His administration is spending up to $1,000 a day caring for illegal immigrant children carrying measles, mumps, scabies, lice, chicken pox, strep throat and tuberculosis. Meanwhile, legal American citizens with law degrees are living with their parents and struggling to find jobs that even pay minimum wage. Continue reading
