The Obama administration would do itself and our economy a great service if it brought back the office of energy czar for the purpose of making this book's thesis a reality -- and made its co-authors, Anne Korin and Gal Luft, co-czars.
A $1 billion fund created by President Obama's health care law, which Republicans have derided as a slush fund, is under investigation for suspicions of lobbying rule violations.

Jurors in New Jersey have delivered a mixed verdict at the trial of a marijuana activist who lives in California and goes by the name "NJWeedman."
Every four years around the time the presidential primaries begin to wrap up, the drumbeat from pundits begins: If only a centrist superhero would swoop in and save the day, espousing bold self-control and a issuing a resounding call to pragmatism. Sorry to ruin the fantasy for you, but Superman doesn't exist.
Writing a book — any book, really — qualifies as celebrity status in this, our country's nerd capital. And so the trick to enjoying the Bethesda Literary Festival is to come up with a game plan and stick to it.
As the world finished celebrating the holidays of peace, the Iranian mullahs appeared again to be planting seeds of conflict in the Middle East. They have threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, vital to global energy supply, as part of a military exercise. In doing so, Iran continues its high-stakes game of chicken with civilized countries around the globe.
England's former secretary of education, Kenneth Baker, ignited a controversy last month by proposing that the Holocaust be removed from school curricula, lest it cause students to think badly of modern-day Germany.
Has America gone soft? Seen our once formidable, can-do economic, cultural and geopolitical six-pack abs devolve into a can't-be-bothered muffin top of belt-buckle-busting, Snuggie-swaddled goo?
A just-released book, "Bowing to Beijing" by Brett M. Decker and William C. Triplett II, will change forever the way you think about China - even if, like me, you already have the deepest worries about the Chinese threat. As I opened the book, I was expecting to find many useful examples of Chinese military and industrial efforts to get the better of the United States and the West.
Liberals are determined to destroy Herman Cain. The Republican presidential candidate is tied or ahead of the presumptive front-runner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. He has been run- ning an anti-establishment, insurgent campaign that champions sweeping tax reform and a pro-growth agenda. He is a Southern populist who touts his private-sector experience. He also is an authentic black conservative. For this, he is being politically lynched by liberals in the media. All that's missing is the noose and the tree.
In the weeks during and since the debt-ceiling debate, the media, pushed by the Democratic Party, has peddled the propaganda that our government is broken - because the Republicans in the House of Representatives negotiated a better deal than the liberals wanted.
The National Governors Association's annual meeting concluded last month with a closing address by New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who writes that there is an urgent need for government to do four things to stem what he characterizes as America's slow decline: spend, cut, tax and invest. If those sound like competing priorities, that's because they are.
Columnists Thomas Friedman of the New York Times and Kathleen Parker of The Washington Post this week joined politicians in bashing Tea Party members, including Republican members of Congress. They all used similar wording, comparing the Tea Party's members to terrorists, and said the party was out to destroy the country.
Thomas Friedman argued as much in a Jan. 8 column in the New York Times: "When you think about how much financial debt we've built up in the market and how much carbon debt we've built up in the atmosphere, the wisest thing we could do as a country today is to start tapping on the brakes by both emitting less carbon to bend the emissions curve down and racking up less debt to bend our debt-to-GDP curve down."
He claimed that an excessive focus on the Holocaust among Israelis is to blame for, among other things, their impatient driving habits, unethical business dealings, meek acceptance of high taxes, and reluctance to make more concessions to the Arabs.
