By Michelle Malkin  •  March 1, 2011 02:01 PM

The job-killing Obama White House has finally issued the first deepwater drilling permit since the BP Horizon oil spill in the Gulf last spring. But as the folks at Louisiana-based blog The Hayride put it: Hoo-freaking-rah. It’s gesture politics, as always: There is much rejoicing in the oil patch today over the news that the […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 18, 2011 09:58 AM

This is becoming a weekly feature. How long are Americans going to tolerate the determined disregard of the Obama administration’s job-killing, rule-of-law-defying environmental corruptocrats?
