Another Trump Boom, This Time in The Texas Oil Fields

The Lone Star State is feeling yet another bump from the policies of President Trump.

There’s a crude renaissance happening in the Lone Star State that George W. Bush would be happy to take credit for.

But, no.  It’s another, more unexpected republican President who is presiding over this latest influx of prosperity to one of the nation’s largest industries:  Donald Trump.

Crude oil production in Texas has beaten a previous record set in the 1970s, a new report from the Texas Independent Producers Royalty Owners Association stated.

Texas oil wells produced more than 1.54 billion barrels of crude in 2018, beating the previous record of 1.28 billion barrels set in 1973, TIPRO reported in its annual “State of Energy Report” early Monday morning.

Natural gas production also grew, reaching 8.8 trillion cubic feet in 2018, the report stated.

This comes at a time in which gas prices for ordinary Americans are trending in the right direction.

Despite a small rise in prices at the pump, Gas prices continue to be the lowest in Virginia since December 2016.

Regions in the Commonwealth still average just below $2 per gallon such as Hampton Roads at $1.99 and Richmond at $1.99.

Gas prices in Virginia are 33 cents less than last year and an eight cent decrease from last month.

Nationally, gas prices are currently $2.25 per gallon which is 29 cents less than last year. However, as crude oil prices continue to climb it does not look like pump prices will drop much lower than we’ve seen so far this year.

For many, a link between this economic windfall and the Presidency of Donald Trump are no coincidence, given the Commander in Chief’s former career as a successful real estate developer in the dynamic market of Manhattan.

Kellyanne’s Husband Goes NUCLEAR on Twitter, Calls Trump The ‘C’ Word

George Conway’s latest lambasting of the President surely has him sleeping on the couch.

George Conway

As the nation begins to dig in their heels in regard to their views of President Trump, we are undoubtedly set for a prolonged social and cultural battle. Our nation was already deeply divided prior to the release of the Mueller report; itself a lightning rod of controversy involving political biases, alleged spying, campaign rivals, and flaring tempers.  These facets of the already-wild story were then amplified, predictably, by an unkempt and irresponsible mainstream media simply for the sake of cashing in on the outrage that they themselves fanned the flames of. This national nightmare has created its fair share of “divided households” as well, with the most famous example being that of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway and her husband George, himself a longtime figure in Washington DC. The fairer Conway is, obviously, still on Team Trump, while George has roaring against the President on Twitter at a breakneck pace. His latest insult, coming just hours after the release of the redacted Mueller report, may be his most stern yet. “What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump,” Conway wrote in a Washington Post opinion-editorial. “Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.” Conway’s insinuation is nearly verbatim to the slant of the mainstream media, who also see the Mueller report as the beginning and not the end. Of course, this runs counter to what both the President and Attorney General Bill Barr have stated repeatedly over the course of the last several hours.

Would-Be NYC Cathedral Arsonist Had Just Purchased a One Way Ticket To…

The story just keeps getting stranger…and more worrisome as well.

Rome vatican

As with just about any news these days, there was an almost immediate sprouting of conspiracy theories surrounding the blaze at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week. For many social media users, the coincidence of the inferno occurring on Monday of Holy Week was just too much.  They saw this as “a sign”, and almost certainly as a “nefarious act”, possibly played out in order to spark some sort of Holy War. The theories get much wilder than that as well, but we dare not wade too deep into the conspiratorial waters, lest we want to be blacklisted by some clandestine “fact checking” gestapo. Despite the insistence of investigators that there was no reason to believe foul play was at work, the internet’s darker corners remained skeptical.  Then, came the story of a man in NYC who was arrested after walking into Saint Patrick’s Cathedral with two cans of gas, some lighter fluid, and a lighting device. This sparked a whole new realm of conspiracy for many…and that was before we knew about his travel plans. Marc Lamparello, a former director of music at a New Jersey Roman Catholic Church, was arrested at the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on Wednesday night after security stopped him with two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, police said. Sources with the New York City Police Department told ABC News that he also purchased a one-way ticket to Rome, which was scheduled to depart from Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday evening. Lamparello, 37, was charged with attempted arson, reckless endangerment and some violations of city codes. He told police that he was taking a shortcut through church to reach his minivan, which he claimed had run out of gas. Police then inspected Lamparello’s vehicle, determined that it…
