The Fantastic Feat of America's Energy Independence

"If the world market believed we were serious about energy independence and we were going to utilize all of our own energy resources, the speculators would stop speculating up and they'd start speculating down as we start getting our own oil out of the ground." –Herman Cain (1945-2020)

For decades now, U.S. Presidents, Congress, politicians and candidates of all stripes, have held out "energy independence" to voters donors, and middle-income American taxpayers as something they were going to do.

They have all — every single one of them — FAILED. Many haven't even tried.

Now, many of them were just talking out of their hats … or another part of their physiology. Just part of what politicians do: lie, in order to get votes.

It's now time that these ill-bred wastrels be held accountable for their constant lying to voters and then ignoring them completely after the election.

Voters had become immune to this apparently impossible promise of energy self-reliance for America, so much so that they had come to think it was impossible.

Then came Trump.

President Trump has now accomplished this campaign promise that so many people running for office have spoken about. The president and the president alone. It's shocking to his enemies and those that unceasingly slander him … but it's true.

Candidate Barack Obama said in 2007, that under "my plan;" his bungled Cap & Trade program, "electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket."

And that they did.

But so did other rates such as home heating oil, natural gas and gasoline. (Ouch, does anyone remember $4-plus per gallon prices?) Obama had purposely left out that under his plan not only electricity rates would "skyrocket," but all other energy commodities would as well.

Examining the failures of Obama's capers begets a question we must all ask: Was his motivation pure Leftist incompetence or a desire to serve his Middle Eastern masters' fortunes? (Those to whom he bowed.)

It is singularly significant that it took a non-politician like Trump to come in and defy/destroy all the lobbyists, non-elected bureaucrats Green industry wingnuts and plump, gobbling elected officials on this issue.

Again, as he always is, it was Trump against the swampy world of special interests, Wind-Solar simpletons and the entire cabal that has always prevented any president from completing this stated goal.

Previous presidents' actions or lack of actions were all washed away by the hyper-unique nature of the Trump Economy and its centerpiece, energy independence.

"American energy independence is an economic issue and a national security issue. It lowers gas process, creates jobs, helps save our environment and lessens our dependence on foreign oil." –Andy Warren
