REALLY, YOU THINK RUSSIA WANTED A TRUMP PRESIDENCY … DID YOU LISTEN TO THE SPEECH?
During President Donald Trump’s amazing speech in Poland yesterday, he brought up many issues and concerns for the West. Among them was a not so veil tongue lashing of Russia and Putin. A day ahead of President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time on the sidelines of the G20 summit, Trump put Putin on notice. Make no mistake about it, Trump’s comment that “Poland and its neighbors are never again held hostage to a single supplier of energy” was a direct slap at Russia.
While President Trump didn’t definitively agree Thursday with the assessment from the CIA, NSA, and FBI that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, he and his administration have taken five aggressive steps against Russia.

- The sale of the Patriot missile system to Poland (video 28:12)
- Urging Russia to end its “destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere”
- Sale of liquid natural gas to European nations (video 3:27)
- Scolding Russia after North Korea’s latest missile test
THERE IS A REASON WHY PENNSYLVANIA WENT REPUBLICAN IN 2016 …
As reported at Fox News Insider, the first new coal mine has opened during the President Trump presidency in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. Check another one off the list of campaign promises for Trump. Who honestly thinks this ever would have happened had Hillary Clinton been elected? Clinton wanted to put coal miners out of business, much like the previous eight years of Obama. Does anyone really wonder why blue collar Democrats in states like PA, OH and MI voted Republican?
President Trump lauded the opening of the nation’s first new coal mine in recent memory.
Corsa Coal Company will operate the mine in Somerset County, Pa. – outside of Pittsburgh.
Corsa CEO George Dethlefsen said the mine will be a boon to the struggling local economy.
He praised Trump’s easing of regulations and encouragement for fossil fuel exploration.
Dethlefsen told Leland Vittert that for the 70 positions available in the mine, 400 people applied.
“It’s a hard day’s work every day, but it’s worth it,” one miner said.
Vittert said the news contrasts with Hillary Clinton’s message that she would “put a lot of coal miners out of work.”

Exxon Mobil Corp. Announced It Plans to Spend $20 Billion Over 10 Years Along the Gulf Coast Resulting in the Creation of 45,000 Jobs
JOBS, JOBS, AND MORE JOBS DURING THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY …
In a press release from Exxon Mobil Corp, they stated that they will be expanding capacity along the U.S. Gulf Coast and plan to invest in $20 billion over the next 10 years and crating over 45,000 jobs. Exxon-Mobile went on to say that many of these are high-skilled, high-paying jobs averaging about $100,000 a year. They also went on to say that the creation of these jobs would have a “multiplier effect” creating more jobs in these communities to service these new investments. This is how capitalism works America. President Donald Trump congratulated Exxon-Mobile and stated, “This is exactly the kind of investment, economic development and job creation that will help put Americans back to work.”
Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) is expanding its manufacturing capacity along the U.S. Gulf Coast through planned investments of $20 billion over a 10-year period to take advantage of the American energy revolution, Darren Woods, chairman and chief executive officer, said Monday.
The projects, at 11 proposed and existing sites, are expected to generate thousands of new high-paying jobs and $20 billion in increased economic activity in Texas and Louisiana, Woods said, highlighting the company’s Growing the Gulf initiative in a keynote speech today at the CERAWeek 2017 conference.
“Importantly, Growing the Gulf also creates jobs and lasting economic benefits for the communities where they’re located,” Woods said. “All told, we expect these 11 projects to create over 45,000 jobs. Many of these are high-skilled, high-paying jobs averaging about $100,000 a year. And these jobs will have a multiplier effect, creating many more jobs in the communities that service these new investments.”
But the Democrat-media complex is so quick to give Barack Obama the credit for this and not President Donald Trump. The Obama water carrying ABC News wrote, “But Exxon’s expansion plan was hatched long before Trump entered the White House: investments began in 2013, during Barack Obama’s presidency, and are expected to continue through at least 2022, according to Exxon.” REALLY? As if fossil fuel related jobs would have ever been created in an Obama administration or Hillary Clinton. GET REAL. Who honestly has the audacity but the liberal MSM to think that fossil fuel jobs and investment would have taken place under a presidency that loathed oil.
Presidents do not generally create jobs, unless you are Donald Trump and actually get personally involved in negotiations with companies and keep jobs in America as opposed to going elsewhere, what presidents do is to create an environment conducive to business. That is what Trump has done. There is no way under the liberal war on coal and energy that Exxon-Mobile would have ever pulled the trigger on this.
But Exxon’s expansion plan was hatched long before Trump entered the White House: investments began in 2013, during Barack Obama’s presidency, and are expected to continue through at least 2022, according to Exxon.
Still, during a keynote speech Monday at an oil and gas industry conference in Houston, Woods gave credit to the Trump administration.
Donald Trump Signs Executive Orders to Advance Dakota Access and Keystone XL Pipelines After Years of Delays Under Obama
Dakota Access and Keystone XL Pipelines back on the table after Trump’s executive orders …
After years of unreasonable delays during the Obama administrative, on Tuesday, day two of the Donald Trump presidency, he signed signed executive actions to advance the approval of the stalled pipelines. Trump said he considered himself and environmentalist; however, the stated the process was far too slow and he wanted to speed up the process. Trump stated that these projects will create 28,000 great construction jobs. Trump also signed an executive order directing if pipelines are built in the United States, the pipes will be built in the United States.
Trump has hit the ground running and the business out of the White House has been astounding. It’s only been two days and Trump has been like the EverReady bunny.
With one swipe of the presidential pen, the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines were back on the agenda, marking the realization of protesters’ worst fears about what Donald Trump presidency means for the environment and the controversial energy projects.
Trump on Tuesday signed executive actions to advance the approval of the stalled pipelines.
The proposed $3.7 billion Dakota Access pipeline was slated to stretch 1,172 miles through four states — from North Dakota into South Dakota, winding through Iowa and ending in southern Illinois — and move 470,000 barrels of crude oil a day across the Midwest. It is completed except for a contested portion under Lake Oahe in North Dakota, which is half a mile upstream from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s reservation.
The $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline was proposed to stretch nearly 1,200 miles across six states — Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas — and carry more than 800,000 barrels of carbon-heavy petroleum daily from Canada’s oil sands through Nebraska to refineries on the Gulf Coast.
Lame Duck President Barack Obama Bans Oil Drilling in Vast Areas of Atlantic and Arctic Oceans With His Pen
THIS IS THE REASON WHY THERE SHOULD BE A LAW THAT STATES A LAME DUCK PRESIDENT SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO DO NOTHING LIKE THIS TO IMPACT FUTURE PRESIDENTS …
The Divider in Chief, the Community agitator in chief has done it again. Outgoing, lame duck president Barack Obama has banned oil and gas drilling with his pen from hundreds of millions of acres of federally owned land in the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean. What a shock that he would do this on the way out the door and impacting a Trump presidency, as opposed to doing it prior to the 2016 elections. However, the gutless wonder in chief would never had provided such a pre-election gift to the environmental wackos as it would have affected the election in a negative manner for Democrats. Even though White House mouthpieces say this executive order cannot be undone by a future president, look for Trump to squash this like a bug. One thing is for certain when it comes to Trump, he hardly cares about precedent when it comes to this type of stuff and neither do those who elected him president.
Look for the community agitator to further reek havoc as he heads out the door.
President Obama moved to solidify his environmental legacy Tuesday by withdrawing hundreds of millions of acres of federally owned land in the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean from new offshore oil and gas drilling.
Obama used a little-known law called the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to protect large portions of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas in the Arctic and a string of canyons in the Atlantic stretching from Massachusetts to Virginia. In addition to a five-year moratorium already in place in the Atlantic, removing the canyons from drilling puts much of the eastern seaboard off limits to oil exploration even if companies develop plans to operate around them.
The announcement by the White House late in the afternoon was coordinated with similar steps being taken by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to shield large areas of that nation’s Arctic waters from drilling. Neither measure affects leases already held by oil and gas companies and drilling activity in state waters.
According to White House officials, their actions to make the areas off limits to future oil and gas exploration and drilling as indefinite. They further went on to say that the withdrawals under Section 12-A of the 1953 act used by presidents dating to Dwight Eisenhower cannot be undone by an incoming president. Sorry, I find that almost impossible to believe. I second Instapundit’s opinion in that it is hard to believe that one president’s signature is more important than another’s. To make such a comment that another president, namely Donald Trump, will not be able to undo Obama’s executive order sounds almost vindictive.
“There is a precedent of more than half a century of this authority being utilized by presidents of both parties,” a White House aide said. “There is no authority for subsequent presidents to un-withdraw. .?.?. I can’t speak to what a future Congress will do.”
