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.

Obama_Worst President2

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.”

Why People Don’t Trust Hillary Clinton … Hillary Says She Will Put Coal Miners out of Work and then Says She was Taken Out of Conext (VIDEO)

HILLARY PROMISES TO TAKE COAL MINERS IN WEST VIRGINIA JOBS AWAY AND THEN ASKS FOR THEIR VOTE

Hillary Clinton promises she is going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business and then comes to West Virginia and tells them lies that she cares about them. I will say this about Hillary, she has more CO-JONES than most men that ran for the presidency. However, once again we are shown that she is a pathological liar and a pandering politician. After making the comments, where she was not taken out of context, that she would shut down coal companies in West Virginia and put even more coal miners out of work, Clinton actually had the balls to go to West Virginia and tell them that she was their friend.

This is the reason why Donald Trump does have a chance against Hillary Clinton. She is your typical lying, pandering politician which is exactly what the people seem to loath this election cycle. The people are sick of politicians saying one thing and then when they are confronted with the very people they affect, they change their tune and lie. Clinton is beholden the the environmental wackos, not the hard working coal folks of West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.

These are different times and the Democrat party does not even resemble what it once was, Once a Clinton stronghold, Appalachia now Trump country.

The WAPO:

In March, speaking about renewable energy at a CNN town hall, Hillary Clinton described herself as “the only candidate” with “a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. Because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right? … And we’re going to make it clear that we don’t want to forget those people.”

“Those people” didn’t forget her either, or her words about putting them “out of business,” in part because Republicans had made much of her comment at the time. And on Monday, one of “those people” confronted her at a small roundtable event in Williamson, W.Va., in the heart of coal country.

His name was Bo Copley, who described himself as an unemployed coal worker. Accompanied by his wife and a photograph of the couple’s children, he had a pointed question for Clinton: “How you could say you are going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend?” he asked, according to the Associated Press. Copley was variously described as “teared up,”  “choked up” and “emotional” as he spoke.

Laid-off coal worker Bo Copley on his confrontation with Hillary Clinton about her comments on the future of the industry

Listen to Whoopi Goldberg be the voice of reason on The View as she does not defend Hillary Clinton’s comments that we are going to put coal miners and coal companies out of business. However, the rest of the female shills for Clinton bent over backwards to defend Hillary’s comments. What a joke, these women, excluding Whoopi, have never seen a coal mine or a coal miner in their life and have never probably picked up a pick or got their fingernails dirty. Listen to them talk, like coal miners need to be taken care of. THEY WANT THEIR JOBS! And thanks to Obama’s war on coal, they have none.

This is most likely the number one reason why you could see Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton is a general election. The government doesn’t have to do better by Bo’s family, they have to get out of the way and stop the over-regulation. Bo lost his job because of Barack Obama and his EPA. He told Americans he would shut down the coal industry when he ran for office, what did you think, he was joking? A Clinton presidency would want to make Bo and his fellow workers dependent on unemployment and the government.

Pelosi’s Husband Invested in Solar Firm Weeks Before Lucrative Expansion

WHAT A COINCIDENCE … THE CORRUPTION OF THE POLITICAL CLASS AND INSIDER TRADING.

From the Washington Free Beacon, imagine that, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, bought up to a quarter million dollars of stock in a now financially troubled green energy company just weeks before it announced a major 2014 acquisition that sent stock prices soaring, public records show. But of course there ws no insider taring here. These people tell us how to live and decide how to spend our money, yet they are allowed to conduct themselves in the most corrupt ways ever and nothing ever happens to them.

Nancy_Pelosi_smile

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s husband bought up to a quarter million dollars of stock in a now financially troubled green energy company just weeks before it announced a major 2014 acquisition that sent stock prices soaring, public records show.

SunEdison told regulators last week that it is eyeing bankruptcy under the weight of $11.7 million in debt. But in late 2014, investors were bullish on the company, which manufactures and operates solar and wind power facilities.

Its 2014 purchase of wind energy company First Wind “further bolstered the reputation of the company,” wrote one market-watcher at the time. “Perhaps unsurprisingly, SunEdison’s stock soared an astounding 29% on news of this acquisition alone.”

Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, had invested just in time. He bought between $100,000 and $250,000 in SunEdison stock on Oct. 24, 2014, according to congressional financial disclosures. The company announced its First Wind acquisition on Nov. 17.

Pelosi’s office did not respond to questions about the timing of the purchase and whether she or her husband had any advance knowledge of the deal.

And the politically corrupt with the inside information just get richer and richer.

Pelosi has previously been accused of trading stock based on information gleaned through her official duties. She participated in Visa’s initial public offering as the company fought a House bill to subject credit card companies to increased regulation. The measure failed to pass.

A law passed in the wake of that controversy prohibits members of Congress from using nonpublic information for personal gain. Language in that measure was informally dubbed the “Pelosi Provision.”

In addition to her stock trades, Pelosi steered more than $1 billion in federal subsidies to a light rail project that likely improved the value of the San Francisco headquarters of cloud computing company Salesforce, in which her husband had invested up to $1 million.
