Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Winter With And Without Fossil Fuels Summed Up In 2 Images

Robert Gehl reports with his singular focus on restarting America’s energy production, Donald Trump is about to singularly change what you pay at the pump for a tank of gas.

When America is running at full-steam, we produce more oil and gas than any other country on earth. Hillary Clinton was determined to put an end to that, but not President-Elect Trump. He plans to increase production, loosen environmental regulations, and get “clean coal” technology working everywhere (in fact, the first “clean coal” power plant went operational near Houston recently.

Trump is going to restart construction of the Keystone XL pipeline by voiding a series of executive orders that brought the massive project to a halt.

He has somewhat promised to repeal restrictions on drilling in the Atlantic Ocean, which is better than the “stop” issued by the Obama Administration.

From the Pebble mine in Alaska to the Resolution Copper mine in Arizona, Trump may also seek to restart copper mining.

And finally, the massive shale oil reserves in North Dakota, which would be carried to a shipping point in Illinois by the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline was shut down after the Obama Administration protested, but a Trump administration could easily take up the cause again – and win.

With former Texas Gov. Rick Perry as Secretary of Energy, it makes it all the more likely that Trump’s pro-energy agenda could be a reality.

All of this has got the folks at OPEC shaking in their boots. Facing this competition, oil prices keep slipping.

ZeroHedge reports that crude prices ticked down toward $51 per barrel as the group has given up on tightening down on the “global oil glut.”

Nobody listens to OPEC anymore – not even their members. To eliminate this “glut,” they would have to practically shut down oil production altogether, and they aren’t able to make that happen.

They are quickly becoming unable to control market forces and determine prices. When the United States surpasses them in oil and energy production, the monopoly will be over and their power grip on the cost of our energy will be a thing of the past.
