This week, President Obama makes a pilgrimage to San Francisco that he’s made several times before, to raise cash at the mansion of an anti-affordable energy extremists who has made stopping Keystone his personal hobby

WASHINGTON, DC – As President Obama heads to the G7 summit, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today released the following statement calling on him to lead in providing energy and lethal, defensive weapons to Ukraine:  

“Over the past year, the House has acted on numerous occasions to provide critical support to Ukraine, but President Obama refuses to do the right thing.  

With the exception of his speech at the Florida Everglades last week, President Obama likes to tell virtually every crowd that “America is number one in oil and gas” production. He’s right – but to borrow his line from 2012, he didn’t build that.

A new, nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) report reveals that from 2010 to 2014:

A year ago, Russian-backed militants forcibly took control of key buildings in a part of Ukraine called Crimea. In the days that followed, the attacks grew and violence escalated. Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed ownership of the territory and sent in columns of tanks. As the world watched the invasion live on TV, President Obama shrugged it off as “not really a shift.”

"He has cast his lot with environmental hysterics"

The president is just too close to environmental extremists to stand up for America’s workers. He’s too invested in left-fringe politics to do what presidents are called on to do, and that’s put the national interest first.

On January 21, 2009, The New York Times celebrated what it perceived as “an end to eight years of stark tension between science and government” and the start of a new era in which government officials no longer “insisted on tight control over even routine functions of key agencies.”

The paper’s inspiration was President Obama’s Inaugural Address, delivered the day before. America’s new chief executive proclaimed:

In addition to the tens of thousands of jobs the project would create, survey after survey shows that a majority of Americans overwhelmingly, and consistently, support building the pipeline.
