  • Trump's victory creates uncertainty for wind and solar power

    President Donald Trump has disputed climate change, pledged a revival of coal and disparaged wind power, and his nominee to head the Energy Department was once highly skeptical of the agency’s value. What this means for states’ efforts to promote renewable energy is an open question. States that are pushing for greater reliance on wind and solar power are not quite sure what to expect as Trump takes over. Many of them depend heavily on federal renewable-energy tax credits, grants and research, much of which comes from the Energy Department. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Trump’s pick to lead the...

    In with one reality TV star and out with another. As former ‘The Apprentice’ star Donald Trump takes the oath as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, former ‘Jeg er ambassadřren fra Amerika’ star Rufus Gifford will board a plane and leave Denmark. What’s that? You’ve never heard of ‘Jeg er ambassadřren fra Amerika’ or Gifford? Well the Danes sure have. Gifford has been the US ambassador to Denmark since 2013 and was warmly embraced by the locals from the second he arrived in Copenhagen. Part of that is down to his movie star looks and his...

President-Elect Trump won South Carolina by a little more than 14 points. In early 2014, a company in Charleston, South Carolina was promising to “revolutionize” home construction, by manufacturing and selling “home construction kits.” First it was called Titan Atlas Manufacturing, later being in reorganized into Titan Atlas Global before shutting down for good in the spring of 2015.

    In a nearly unprecedented move, President-elect Donald Trump not once but twice this week met with executives of very large firms and their lobbyists whose pending merger deals will require approval by his own antitrust officials. The moves offered evidence that Trump’s antitrust program—and perhaps by extension all of his administration’s white-collar enforcement—may be altogether darker than what we thought even a few days ago. Antitrust was the focus of a lot of talk this campaign season, to a degree remarkable for a dusty old policy area that had played no explicit role in presidential politics for upward of 70...

    Republicans can argue until their last breath that Trump objectors are sore losers, but isn’t more at stake than “mere politics”? This phrase has been rendered quaint by such serious issues as Russian hackers apparently trying to tilt the election toward Donald Trump; the FBI’s possibly politically motivated practices; Trump’s initial resistance to the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence community; Trump’s refusal to release tax records, which might mollify concerns about his relationship with Russia.

    With Martha McCollum substituting for Meghan Kelly in the Kelly File, we have FoxNews' Ed Henry showing powerful video footage of Trump in Arizona unqualifiedly and adamantly asserting he'll cancel all of Obama's Executive Orders and deport all Dreamers and Illegals. The crowd roars in approval shouting: TRUMP. TRUMP, TRUM. What follows is a spirited panel discussion about Trump backtracking on this core promise after meeting with Mayor Emmanuel. Is this a backtracking? If so should Trump hear from his 62 million voters loud and clear?

    "Opening relations with China" is considered to be one of the hallmark accomplishments of President Nixon's accomplishments. In light of the controversy surrounding President-elect Trump's call to Taiwan, and the overall sense that there needs to be a dramatic re-adjustment of our relations with Beijing in general, I wanted to know what role President Nixon and his legacy has played for the better or the worse with regard to our long term interests... How should we view China exactly?

    Economic authoritarianism has now arrived... Mark Levin·Sunday, December 4, 2016 Economic authoritarianism has now arrived; sorry, there is no other way to put it. I am reminded of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt, both of whom used the power of the federal government to intimidate and even crush legitimate, law-abiding businesses for failing to abide by their political demands. This is a disgrace, and we should all object to it. It concerns me to no end that there are putative Republicans and conservatives who rally around such un-American and destructive strong-arm tactics. And the fact that it is declared by...
