Why has the Biden administration chosen to target Alaska’s highly regulated energy industry on a recent Zoom call with world leaders? Alaska’s oil and gas producers don’t flare their gas—they pump it back into the ground. State-of-the-art horizontal-drilling technology limits their development footprint.

With the idea of expanding the Supreme Court being floated by the Democrats, it’s important to remember that the role of the Supreme Court is to objectively and without bias decide cases based upon what the Constitution says.

Even Clinton appointee Steven Briar has stated that adding justices would "further erode" the public trust and it' political independence.
Major League Baseball pulled the Major League All-Star game from Atlanta in protest of its new voter legislation although in many ways it's still easier to vote in Georgia than in New York and Delaware. We wonder if that means they will stop trying to play exhibition games in China in protest over that countries of dismal human rights?
