    Congressman Devin Nunes (CA-22) released the following statement today after joining the executive committee of Donald Trump’s transition team: “Today I was honored to have been named to the executive committee of President-elect Donald Trump's transition team. In this role, I will advise President-elect Trump on the appointments of his Cabinet members and on appointments to other top positions in the new administration.

    Governor Jerry Brown on Wednesday vetoed a bill to strengthen the California legislature's oversight of high-speed rail. The measure, introduced by Assemblyman Jim Patterson from Fresno, would have simply required the High-Speed Rail Authority to provide more information on the cost and schedule for each planned segment of the high-speed rail system. The provision of this information had been recommended by the Legislative Analyst's Office. It's no surprise that Governor Brown would resist atte... Read more

    Congressman Devin Nunes (CA-22), Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, introduced a bill in the House of Representatives today encouraging the Department of the Interior to advance its plan to sell two leases for energy development in the Arctic. The Arctic lease sales are included in the Department of the Interior’s draft plan for its 2017-2022 Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program. However, after canceling the draft plan’s approval of new drilling in t... Read more

    A group of state attorneys general announced earlier this year they would investigate ExxonMobil for fraud due to company statements that cast doubt on the supposedly catastrophic threat posed by global warming. In an amazing coincidence, the officials took action shortly after a coalition of global warming activists, including Greenpeace and the Rockefeller Family Fund, held a fateful meeting in which they discussed plans to launch a full-scale attack on ExxonMobil. The plans included actions ... Read more

    After a seven-year-long review process, President Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline today. The pipeline received widespread backing from the American people and bipartisan support in Congress. That’s not surprising – for most people, deciding whether to create more jobs, boost economic growth, and secure more oil from a stable, friendly nation like Canada is pretty easy to do. President Obama, however, sees things differently. Time and again, he has chased after his utopian dream of a “gr... Read more

  • Global warming overload

    Since its inception, the Obama administration has engaged in an all-out push to adopt ever-stricter global warming regulations. Recall that Barack Obama was the only presidential candidate – at least as far as I can remember – who took office vowing to bankrupt any company in an entire American industry that refuses to adhere to his environmental agenda. When President Obama’s attempt to impose a carbon-trading scheme on the U.S. economy proved too extreme even for a Democrat-controlled Congres... Read more

    Washington Examiner by Rep. Devin Nunes With the lightning advance of ISIS' jihadist army to the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq is falling into chaos. The country's Shiites are mobilizing militias to fight the Sunni terrorists, while the nation faces a good possibility of some sort of Iranian intervention. Regardless of who ultimately wins this conflict, Iraq looks destined for a prolonged period of instability. This once again jeopardizes a crucial source of the world's oil - crude prices spiked to...

  • Obama's 'Grand Bargain'

    National Review Online President Obama recently offered Republicans a “grand bargain” — lowering the corporate tax rate, apparently from 35 to 28 percent, and closing some loopholes in return for new “investments” in jobs. The economy unquestionably needs help. Unemployment is 7.6 percent and economic growth is stuck below 2 percent. But the president is offering an inadequate reform in exchange for a damaging one. The shiny bauble Obama is holding out to Congress — the prospect of reducing the ... Read more

    National Review Online Having grown up on a farm in California’s San Joaquin Valley, I have seen firsthand how environmental extremists smashed a flourishing agricultural region. Citing the need to protect a three-inch baitfish called the Delta smelt, green activists succeeded in getting farmers’ water supplies drastically cut. As some of the world’s most productive soil degenerated into a drought-stricken landscape, farmers — some of whose families had worked these lands for generations — packe... Read more
