The “Basket of Deplorables” election revolution

The so-called Basket of Deplorables and the millions of forgotten people, who were either left behind or unemployed during the “economic recovery,” led Tuesday’s election day revolution. The deplorables voted for Donald Trump for president because: Trump led the revolution against the Establishment Republican and Democratic parties, who continued to maintain the status quo with respect to globalization, regardless of the unlevel playing field in trade, jobs and lack of international respect for America, which was in sharp...

Obama’s War on U.S. Energy Independence by executive fiat

The economy is $17T in debt, unemployment remains above 7.5%, the president’s administration is surrounded by scandals – Benghazi, IRS, NSA spying – the DOJ with almost weekly legal issues, $100M dollar trips to Africa, insurrection in Egypt, Obamacare that can’t even get off the ground and European bankruptcies on the horizon, so what does Obama talk about – climate change. Obama told a Georgetown crowd that he would bypass Congress again and order the EPA to declare a war on power plants to save America from...

Obama ready to kill XL pipeline for global warming advocates

According to the latest issue of the Patriot Post, deciding whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline has been one of the toughest challenges of the Obama presidency. However, Obama may have already made up his mind to sell out the tens-of-thousands of American jobs to the left environmentalists because it has been reported that the Obama administration is preparing to tell all federal agencies for the first time that they should consider the impact on global warming before approving major projects. Under the current National Environmental...

Not the “change” Obama supporters had “hoped” for

The following changes have taken place since January 9, 2009 to election day November 6, 2012. Gas Prices were $1.84 per gallon, now $3.69 per gallon, if you can even purchase gas in hurricane Sandy’s aftermath on the Eastern coast. Obviously FEMA is not doing any better after Sandy, than government did after Katrina in the South – no change or hope there. No attacks from the media about the administration, because it’s Obama not Bush! Unemployment was 7.8%, now 7.9% despite $800B stimulus spending and 24 million people out...

Energy Policy for the U.S. – a starting point

A commenter to a recent Patriot Post presented a simple way to begin an Energy Policy for the United States, with my embellishments added, of course. First and foremost, get rid of all federal subsidies for energy – oil subsidies included. Second, the government should stop trying to pick winners and losers based on who is occupying the Oval Office at the time – whether it’s Bush’s oil barrons or Obama’s environmental wackos. Third, stop targeting certain, specific sectors of the energy market for...

Obama boasts, what do you mean we are not drilling?

The American Petroleum Institute, an industry lobbying group, has charged that Obama is trying to take credit, not only for the Southern route of the Keystone oil pipeline, but for the increase in oil output during his first term, which has nothing to do with the federal government. Obama said Thursday that the number of operating rigs has quadrupled and that more than 75% of potential offshore oil resources have been opened up during his presidency. The rise in domestic production is coming from private land and state land that requires no...
