It's the oil, stupid: The coming energy revolution

It's the oil, stupid: The coming energy revolution

By Sol W. Sanders If we can get your attention off Dred Scott II — the Supreme Court decision on health care costs with its byzantine political implications — something perhaps as fundamental for the U.S. and world economies is happening: a second fossil fuel revolution. The Saudis are pumping oil like mad. The world’s […]

Iran’s overlooked ambitions in Latin America

Iran’s overlooked ambitions in Latin America

By Fariborz Saremi Iran has been working covertly not only in Canada and the United States but has also been fostering strong ties with an anti-U.S. set of countries in South America: Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua. The USA has largely failed to take proper note Iran’s well-funded ambitions in these countries. Rather, it has sought […]

Keystone XL: A pipeline to …well, almost …eternity

Keystone XL: A pipeline to …well, almost …eternity

By Sol W. Sanders Camouflaged by Congressional political badminton and President Barack Obama’s demagoguery, the Keystone XL Pipeline Project represents solutions to economic and security issues far exceeding its general appreciation.

High time Cuba rejoined real world; But is it too late?

High time Cuba rejoined real world; But is it too late?

By Sol W. Sanders   When satellite Communist countries imploded with the Soviet Union collapse, the debris scattered. A united Germany still copes with moral as well as economic degradation left behind by the Soviet Bloc’s star performer, the German Democratic Republic.

The killing fields of Caracas

The killing fields of Caracas

Powerlineblog.com We missed an important moment at the Miss Universe pageant on Saturday night. The outgoing Miss Universe made a little political statement on her final catwalk that was visible to Venezuelans but probably no one else, holding up an obsolete seven star pre-Chavez era flag. She did it to signal distress in her country, […]
