Who’s really setting Energy Policy for Hillary?

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

In this election circus one candidate struggles stay on message while the other struggles to stand up.  Much of the swirl around Clinton focuses on her use of a private email server, with the intention of keeping her emails private, even after she left office.  That probably would have worked if it weren’t for the Benghazi debacle and the investigation that uncovered the server. 

This calls into question her judgment, her character, and her willingness to be open about what she is doing while serving the country.  However, while not good judgment, according to the FBI not illegal and for her nothing to worry about.

Is it Donald Trump or Hillary that provides the best Energy Policy?

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

As we head into the Republican and Democrat conventions the two candidates to be anointed are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.  Most have taken that for granted over the last few months and the drama of Hillary’s emails and Trump’s bombastic comments have done nothing to change that.

The conventions will address all kinds of issues, recent black on white violence, national security, immigration/illegal immigration and the great wall, gay marriage and the LGBT community, Islamic terrorism (at least on the republican side), climate change and of course the economy.  One topic that is probably NOT going to be addressed is energy.  After all, the price of gasoline is sub three dollars and our power bills are incredibly low, so why would this topic be important. read more

Trump on Energy in Politics...?

Friday, May 27, 2016

Donald Trump gives his first Energy Policy speech... Well Sort of. 
We know his stance on immigration and we certainly know where he stands when dealing with the media.

It seems everyone is talking about the "Donald" these days.  Now that he has locked up the nomination, according to AP, will he actually build the wall, is he conservative or opportunistic?  How Donald Trump would govern is a good question to ask, our current President was elected with "hope and change" and no real descriptions.  Donald Trump seems to be getting along with "Make America Great Again".  He has managed to diffuse any real questions about his policies and is now beginning to unite the party around his controversial run for the presidency. read more

Who's leading on Energy and Climate, Rubio, Cruz, Trump, Florina or someone else?

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Recently several republican hopefuls running for President have made statements that give us a clue on where they would stand on Energy. The most basic stance, held by all of them, is that they would have approved the XL pipeline, while each of the Democrats have come out and publicly stated that they would not approve the pipeline.  Just about everyone feels that the Presidents decision to not finish the pipeline was politically motivated and reflects poorly on the rule of law in our country.   read more

Ever Wonder Where Hillary Clinton Stands on Energy, we did.

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Hillary Clinton on Energy
Hillary is a savvy political veteran, and as the Democrat front runner you would expect to see her policies clearly laid out, however, as a savvy political veteran she knows the dangers of doing that and has kept it very light.  However, we have been able to pick up some nuggets that give us an idea on where she stands. read more

Energy policy in today's world of make-believe

Does energy policy need to be complicated?

Over the years we have published hundreds of articles from industry CEOs, Presidents, managers, politicians and Energy Dignitaries about energy policy.  You can see a partial list here.  The nuances surrounding the topic are numerous and the policies, for the most part, make sense.  So why can’t our guys in Washington or on the campaign trail get it right?   read more

Jeb Bush, staunch conservative or fair weather friend?

Monday, June 22, 2015

Jeb Bush, brother of George W., is running for the republican nomination for president, for those of us living under a rock.  The Bush family has become somewhat of a political dynasty unto itself of late, with two Presidents, two governors, and younger ones taking political office along the way. read more

Carly Fiorina, candidate for President discusses energy policy.

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

One of the very few candidates to express any willingness to compare and contrast how she would handle energy to what the current administration is doing, Carly Florina, met with The Fuse to discuss energy policy.  While the answers were a little contrived and short on specifics, we appaud the effort and hope to see more candidates take a shot at it. Highlights include: read more
