Grabien.com recently reported:
The nationwide price for gas closed the week of July 17th at $2.39/gallon, down from $2.47/gallon when Trump took office.
Over the July 4th holiday weekend, gas prices were at their lowest point since 2005, according to the AAA.
“At $2.23, today’s average national gas price is the cheapest the country has seen all year,” AAA reported. “On the week, gas prices fell in 46 states. … South Carolina continues to carry the cheapest gas in the country at $1.90. Today, consumers can find gas for $2.00 or less at one out of every four gas stations in the country.”
But then the minority leader of the US Senate Chuck Schumer, the top elected Democrat in America, said on ABC News that “Gas prices are sticky — you know, when the domestic price goes, uh, when the, uh, price for oil goes up on the markets, it goes right up but it never goes down …”
So do you see what is going on here? Gasoline had reached almost $4 a gallon under Obama as a result of ‘green’ policies. With inflation factored in that would be $4.50 a gallon or more. Obama even had warned in 2008 while campaigning that energy prices would “necessarily skyrocket” under his ‘green’ policies. And they sure did, doing great damage to American consumers.
Yet now that gasoline is $2.39 a gallon and as little as $2 a gallon, Schumer somehow claims that prices never go down. This shows how completely devious these Democrats are. And here is how this works:
Democrats will say absolutely anything that serves their purpose when they have a national audience, like saying that oil prices never go down. Or Al Gore claiming in 2006 that sea levels will rise 17 feet. But then when they get corrected or debunked on the internet or on talk radio by conservatives, far fewer people see it or hear it.
If Republicans did this it would be laughed out of town and exposed on the news every night.
Liberals are brazen political opportunists who do not care about the truth. We see the Democrats lying about everything from gasoline prices to illegal immigration (see below) to the economy to ‘climate change’. And they know that they are lying but they do not care because truth is irrelevant to the socialist left. That is why they hate The Ten Commandments, one of which says that you should not “bear false witness” (lie).
Our national energy supply is enormous. The United States has up to 1,000 years of known energy reserves – 500 years in coal alone – and certainly centuries more worth of energy that we have not yet discovered. The 104,000 square mile Marcellus Shale natural gas deposit in the Northeastern US is estimated to hold up to 600 trillion cubic feet of gas. Untapped oil shale supplies in Utah and Colorado are estimated up to 2 trillion barrels.
The Prudhoe Bay oil field in Alaska was originally estimated in the 1960s at one billion barrels but it now has produced 18 billion.
On top of that, the global oil supply is virtually unlimited. The world today has bigger oil reserves than ever after 50 years in which environmentalists told us that “the world is running out of oil.” Still most of the earth is unexplored or underexplored. Even Israel has discovered huge oil supplies under its feet in shale deposits.
Even better, the oil companies can now find oil at will with new technology. There are few “dry holes” like there were 100 years ago or even 40 years ago.
There’s much more. Methane hydrates may be the biggest bonanza of all. They are chunks of ice scattered all over the deep ocean floor (all 130 million square miles of it, or 36 times the size of the USA) that have absorbed methane gas that has leaked out of the earth. These hydrates may contain natural gas deposits that are hundreds or thousands of times what we know to exist right now.
Naturally environmentalists want to obstruct our bountiful carbon energy supplies that debunk the ‘green’ myth that the world will soon run out of carbon fuels.
We have only have faced shortages and price spikes when man-made forces caused them, like the Arab oil embargo of the 1970s; like international oil workers’ strikes and terror attacks on pipelines back in Spring 2008 when gasoline went briefly to $4 a gallon; like environmentalists’ persistent obstruction of oil drilling on federal land, offshore, ANWR, etc.; and ‘green’ obstruction of the most productive form of oil and natural gas extraction, which is “fracking”.
Fortunately, with president Trump in office we are seeing prices fall because Trump has a pro-oil policy.
Meanwhile what is happening to electricity rates? And why?
Well, we know that electricity rates are generally going up, up, up. And the reason is that electrical utilities are being forced under law by ‘green’ legislation to buy inefficient and expensive energy from windmills and solar panels.
Conclusion: Never believe anything that an environmentalist or Democrat says about energy. Or anything else.
Now here is a commentary about illegal immigration:
News Busters reported:
On Monday, NBC’s Today shamefully exploited the deaths of illegal immigrants smuggled into the U.S. to attack the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress. After reporting on how 39 people were found in the back of tractor trailer in San Antonio, Texas, nine of whom died due to the extreme 100-degree heat, correspondent Gabe Gutierrez declared: “Some blame the current political climate”.
A soundbite followed of left-wing illegal immigration activist Jonathan Ryan … ranting: “The harsh rhetoric of today is exactly what is responsible for tragedies like what happened in San Antonio.”
Rather than rightfully point out the failures of the Obama administration to deal with illegal immigration, instead, a clip ran of Democratic Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro lecturing: “It’s a symptom of a broken immigration system which Congress has refused to fix.”
Wrapping up the segment, Gutierrez implored: “And as the immigration debate rages in this country, what happened in this parking lot is serving as a haunting reminder of what’s at stake.”
OK, we have Democrats and the media exploiting the tragic deaths of illegal immigrants for partisan political purposes, i.e., blaming anyone who is opposed to open borders for the deaths. So let Nikitas3.com approach this issue from the conservative side just to make this fight fair:
We have these crises over illegal immigration because the Democrats, and some Republicans, have been encouraging open borders for decades. They have rejected an orderly immigration system that would bring people here legally and safely, instead of hidden in trucks.
Hundreds or maybe thousands of illegals have died crossing the desert. The whole border area has been ruined by illegals with trash and destruction of plant life, while millions of Americans have been subjected to vicious crimes committed by evil illegals who have waltzed into our country without scrutiny. Illegal immigrants have flooded our schools and hospitals, and have high rates of dependency on US government programs even though they are not even citizens.
In short, open borders mean chaos and we can no longer tolerate it.
On July 4, 2017 Nikitas3.com witnessed a naturalization ceremony for twenty immigrants who came to the US legally. It was a wonderful event, and very emotional. It made me realize even more how much we need to have a legal and orderly immigration system in which we know precisely whom we are allowing to come into our nation.
But not Democrats. And the result is predictable. Here is one example of thousands every year from Breitbart News:
An illegal alien from Mexico sits in a North Carolina jail after allegedly setting fire to an apartment complex to get revenge on an ex-girlfriend. The fire left 130 residents homeless.
Police arrested Jesus Reyes Lopez, 20, after he reportedly started a fire at the Woodscape Apartments in Charlotte, North Carolina late last week. The fire damaged 40 apartment units and drove 130 people from their homes, the Charlotte Observer reported.
These stories come every single day. Here’s one more from Fox News:
An illegal immigrant living in New York allegedly raped a girl several times when she was 12 and 13 years old — including once in front of a baby.
Fernando Alvarado-Perez, 37, was charged with first-degree rape, criminal sexual act and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, the Livingston County News reported.
The Genessee Sun reported Alvarado-Perez had sex with the girl while in front of a baby, however, additional information surrounding the case was not available. It’s unclear when the alleged rapes occurred.
