Though there is unlikely to be any major change in German policy, for the moment, the AfD’s surge, especially in the former East Germany, suggests a massive psychological shift amongst average Germans, in a country haunted by guilt from the … Continue reading

The inability of Congress to act and provide proper funding, has advanced a strong movement in Montana, led by state Senator Jennifer Fielder (R-Thompson Falls) to push for the transfer of federal lands back to the state for proper management and supervision. Continue reading
The lack of access to low-cost electricity is one of the main contributors to poverty in the Third World. For those concerned about the environment, many of these countries can construct coal-fueled power plants by automatically using technology that can produce emissions that are extremely low. In addition to providing Third World populations with a source of energy to improve their lives so too can coal lift people up economically. Continue reading
At Powder River Basin in Montana, the coal is consistently high quality allowing export to America’s strategic partners such as Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, and helping to maintain steady supply chains. It is coal that developing nations would welcome. Yet, thanks to the environmentalist lobby, coal export terminal construction is a slow and often stop-and-go process. On the West Coast of the United States, there are currently three potential terminal sites pending approval that could otherwise export Montana and Wyoming coal to East Asia. Continue reading
Though Washington and Oregon are dominated by the Democrat Party, by taking an anti-coal stance, they hinder the creation of mainly union jobs. Railroaders, longshoreman, miners, construction workers, who are all unionized, suffer from lack of work as the Democrats cater to the environmentalist wing of the party. Continue reading
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) lauded the decision stating in a press release the “Supreme Court ruling sends a strong signal to the EPA that it must stop ignoring the economic damage its regulations are causing to our energy sector and our economy,” adding, “This ruling is an important step to rein in this out-of-control agency.” Continue reading
Contrary to the charges made by these ideologically motivated environmentalists, coal exporting and transporting companies are going to great lengths to protect both their product as well as the environment. A good example of this is over the debate involving dust that blows off of coal being transported on trains. There is no incentive for coal companies to tolerate coal dust blowing off of their product, as it harms their profits. Therefore, these companies have begun to take new and effective measures to reduce the loss of dust. Continue reading
Though Labour and the LibDems have often worked well with the SNP inside Scottish politics, when it came to deciding the fate of the Union, Labour and the LibDems joined the right-wing in advocating for preservation of the Union, which may have cost them dearly. Now that the union is preserved, they have been effectively “punished” for their position on Scottish independence. The LibDems also got a shellacking by losing 47 seats and holding on to a mere eight, with party leader Nick Clegg resigning his post. Continue reading
Despite the massive economic growth of Montana oil in the first decade of the 21st Century, Big Sky Country still faces the issue of market access. The project creates a $140 million onramp in Baker, where capacity for 100,000 bpd Bakken crude could be sent from Montana to the proposed Keystone XL route.
Looking into the coal industry in Montana gives us a strong insight into the present state of affairs of American coal. Montana generally ranks around fifth in terms of coal output in the United States, while having the largest amount of reserves, roughly 25 percent of U.S. reserves, or 120 billion tons.
Across Europe and much of the industrialized world, in a growing reaction to globalization and socialism, many nations are beginning to question the current state of their historical identity and their future direction. With nations such as France, Greece and Hungary vibrantly moving toward nationalist and crypto-fascist identities that will begin to shape continental Europe’s future in the 21st Century, the gigantic unknown region of Western Civilization that has not yet dealt so seriously with this identity question are the Anglosphere nations, most specifically the United States.
Katie Pavlich’s new book, Assault and Flattery, exposes the liberal heroes of the women’s movement and provides one of the most dynamic arguments against modern leftism. While Ann Coulter exposes the heinous dimensions of leftism and race, so does Pavlich expose the left’s hypocrisy and abusive nature toward women.
If America has Ron Paul, then Great Britain has Daniel Hannan. Both are pro-liberty warriors, bred out of their respective Anglophone environments and inevitably wind up at the same end point: the theme of Anglo-Saxon civilization is liberty.
This problem of mass immigration, coupled with dangerously low European birth rates, has produced a “demographic time bomb.” Europeans are being replaced instead by a growing Third World population with a much higher birth rate. Karsten Lorentzen describes this problem … Continue reading
House Speaker John Boehner may have decided to halt any proceedings on immigration, but Congressman Steve King (R-IA) remains steadfast making sure “nothing comes to the floor that relates to immigration.”
“If we have amnesty, the breakdown that has happened in California will be the model of what happens to the whole country,” said Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News & Analysis. Should Congress grant amnesty, Rohrabacher, who represents Southern California’s 48th congressional district, projects…
WASHINGTON — “Having an independent investigation on Benghazi means not having the Justice Department interfering in any way” declared Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX), in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News & Analysis. Stockman has joined a growing list of Republicans calling for an independent, bi-partisan Special Select Committee to investigate the remaining questions surrounding the terrorist attack of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya. He elaborated on his position saying “you cannot have people that may be involved in a cover-up also investigating that cover-up.”
In spite of being allowed to return back to their positions, the ‘Benghazi Four’ are still being “intimidated” by the federal government according to Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va.). “They should be allowed to speak the truth, but they’re not” Congressman Wolf told this reporter in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News & Analysis while remarking on how the four State Department employees were forced to sign a “non-disclosure agreement,” whereby they will not reveal what happened at the Benghazi annex on September 11, 2012.
