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.

Published

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.

Trending: REPORT: AOC’s Chief of Staff Was Hired After Funneling Money Through Her Boyfriend

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.

REPORT: Smollett Tells ‘Empire’ Castmates ‘I Swear to God, I Did Not Do This’

WOW! Really, dude?

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was arrest by the Chicago PD and charged with a felony for a reason.

Authorities have good reason to believe he staged a hate crime against himself. It’s that simple.

The brothers who “attacked” Jussie even said they were paid by the openly gay actor to go after him.

Now, it is being reported that Smollett told his castmates that he didn’t do it.

From Daily Wire:

Actor Jussie Smollett surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning after he was charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report. Later in the day, Smollett was released from prison on $100,000 bond and headed to the set of his Fox show, “Empire,” where he reportedly begged his castmates for forgiveness while simultaneously maintaining his innocence.

“Sources on the ‘Empire’ set tell us the cast and crew were waiting at least 30 minutes for Jussie to begin the scheduled scene. When he eventually showed his face he was very emotional, and surrounded by his family,” says a report from TMZ.

Smollett apparently told the cast: “I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to God, I did not do this.”

Check out this clip of a gay black veteran ripping Smollett to pieces, because you’re certainly not going to see it on MSNBC anytime soon.

WATCH:

Powerful!

Kudos to this American hero for speaking up and calling out Jussie for attempting to incite a race war.

Smollett has also officially been charged with a felony:

Smollett has a history of lying to law enforcement.

Back in 2007, he “provided false information” after receiving a DUI.

From Daily Wire:

Jussie Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license, and providing false information to law enforcement officials in 2007, according to new reports released on Tuesday.

“Tuesday the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed that in August of 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement,” CBS Chicago reported. “He was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail. Officials at the office could not confirm which Smollett chose. A spokesman for the Chicago Police Department said the department was already aware of the plea.”

Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president. The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.

After hearing that Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”

Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.

Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett…

EXPOSED: Bernie Sanders Once Wrote Sex Fantasy About Woman Being Raped

Hey, MSM – Over here!

John Salvatore

Published

on

Vermont Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders has a wild past that includes praising communist nations and disparaging the United States.

Also, he once penned an op-ed in the 70s about how women fantasize about being raped.

If Bernie was a Republican and the mainstream media got word of this, he’d be toast.

Fortunately for Bernie, he gets a pass.

From Federalist Papers:

On his radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere took some time to revisit an essay Sanders wrote in 1972, originally for the Vermont Freeman. It’s…something else:

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday — and go to Church, or maybe to their ‘revolutionary’ political meeting.

Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like ‘Girl 12 raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?

WATCH:

Back in November 2018, dozens and dozens of people showed up for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s rally featuring Sanders as the main speaker.

And that’s about it.

It would appear as if the auditorium is darn near entirely empty.

WATCH:

While offering zero evidence, Bernie labeled President Trump using four despicable words.

Any guesses?

….take a second to think about it…

………………………………..

Here they are: racist, sexist, homophobic, and bigoted.

Not exactly original, Bernie.

Sanders noted:

I just returned on Saturday from a nine-state tour working with great candidates all across this country. And I can tell you there are candidates and supporters working hour after hour to make sure we end one-party control of the United States government. They are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.

He continued:

While taking back the House and the Senate is obviously of enormous importance, it is not enough. What we need right now, in governors’ chairs all across this country, are governors who are gonna stand with the working people; they’re gonna stand with the elderly; they’re gonna stand with the children; they’re gonna stand with the poor, and they’re gonna fight for an agenda and an economy for all of us, not just the one percent.
