The other War

By Patrick Van Roy On September 12th, 2019 at 2:00 pm

(Bloomberg) — The U.S. briefly became the world’s No. 1 oil exporter as record shale production found its way to global customers, and there are prospects for more.

Surging output from shale helped America ship almost 9 million barrels a day of crude and oil products in June, surpassing Saudi Arabia, the International Energy Agency said in a report, citing gross export figures. There’s room to send even more supply overseas as companies add infrastructure to transport the burgeoning production from fields in Texas and New Mexico to the coast.

Gains in U.S. supply are undermining efforts by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, whose production cuts are in their third year in a bid to drain stockpiles. The swelling American output, as well as deepening concerns over global demand fueled by a prolonged U.S.-China trade war, have prompted a drop of almost 20% in benchmark Brent crude from an April high.

The expansion in America’s exports in June was helped by a surge in crude-oil shipments to more than 3 million barrels a day, the IEA said. At the time, Saudi Arabia was cutting its exports as part of the OPEC+ agreement, while Russian flows were constrained by the Druzhba pipeline crisis.

The Saudis reclaimed the top exporter’s spot in July and August as hurricanes disrupted U.S. production and the trade dispute “made it more difficult for shale shipments to find markets,” the IEA said.

The tussle for the No. 1 slot could remain tight in the months ahead. As Saudi Arabia continues to curb production, the IEA said America’s crude exports could rise by a further 33% from June levels to as much as 4 million barrels a day as new export infrastructure gets built in the fourth quarter of this year.

Oil, LNG, and Coal are the real weapons in modern war. Our wars have evolved more and more into the realm where War belongs… the economic battlefield.

As my cousins across the pond have Elections over the next decade one of the main questions that should be asked of each and every person running is this. “Are you going to push for our Energy needs to be met by the US, or are you going to allow us to be held hostage by two hostile regimes, the Soviets, and the Saudi’s ?”

We will not be employing our guns

By Patrick Van Roy On August 29th, 2019 at 9:11 pm

But the outrage that is percolating beneath the surface is palpabil you can feel in the air a charged pressure building with each passing day.

For over 2 years it has been shoved down our throats that the President was a Traitor. He colluded with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary.

That is what they claimed and that was what he was framed to look like he was doing. While the same people that were framing him falsifying evidence and committing perjury to use the Patriot Act to destroy a political candidate. This was the very thing the Left screamed would happen with the Patriot Act, and that is exactly what the left did.

They never expected he would win, no one really did. Come the end of election day however Trump was President not Clinton. Now the Obama administration officials are screwed. If their activity is discovered they could all go to jail. The Mueller investigation was set into motion the incoming administration must be kept on the defensive to prevent them from proceeding to look into the counter espionage investigation and the Hillary “probe”. They had no doubt that Mueller’s investigation would uncover crime. Trump was a NYC Real Estate Developer half the construction business in NY is Mob connected. They knew they would find something and then he’d be gone.

One problem the last thing anyone expected, Trump was Mr. Clean…… they got nothing.

When it all unravelled the backlash began. There are 5 separate IG Criminal investigations looking into the origins of the FISA Warrants, the counter espionage investigations origin, the Hillary email cover up, the use of foreign intelligence assets to subvert american law, and a little one on Comey’s admitted leaking of classified information.

The framing of Trump and the Clinton Cover Up were ran out of the White House. It was coordinated through Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, and Comey.

No one expects Obama or Clinton to ever see a courtroom let alone serve the time they deserve, but we expect those that broke the law in their name be held accountable to the Law.

The fear that they will not is causing an underlying unease in half the population.  An unease that will quickly erupt into outrage.

They destroyed General Flynn’s life, Manafort and Cohn got what they deserved, Papadopoulos got screwed, and Carter Page the man they first set up is going to wind up filthy rich by the time he’s done.

Today the minor IG report was revealed to the public, it was considered so small in the tempest of this storm of investigations that no one even knew it was going on. Crooked Cop James Comey’s admitted leak investigation. It has been decided that the crooked cop won’t be prosecuted for this violation of the Law.

He has been smarmy all day demanding apologies and reparations…. scumbag. He won’t get either and he is still under investigation as part of ALL FOUR of the other investigations. He is far from in the clear.

The Law Abiding that go to work pay their bills and taxes while playing by societies rules are holding our breath. If major players in this scandal don’t get charged with the crimes that they committed the unrest of the middle class will be quite real. How it will manifest I can not predict except we will not resort to violence.

But that outrage will be expressed if it is confirmed to the general public that there is a two tier system in our Country.

Personally I have Faith….. there will be prosecutions and justice will be served. I do not believe my nation has fallen.

March 29th National Vietnam War Veterans Day

By Patrick Van Roy On March 29th, 2019 at 5:41 pm

National Vietnam War Veterans Day is a commemorative holiday in the United States which recognizes the sacrifices that veterans and their families made during the Vietnam War. It is also a day to give proper recognition to the men and women who returned home from that war and didn’t receive a proper welcome home. It’s a holiday that’s been celebrated since 1973 on either March 29th or March 30th of each year through a patchwork of state resolutions. However, in 2017, the date of the holiday was set as March 29th by U.S President Donald Trump. This day is now officially known as National National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

The Mueller Report, where we are

By Patrick Van Roy On March 24th, 2019 at 3:30 pm

Friday the Report was dropped on the AG, he is reviewing the Report now.  You are hearing the Dems call for release of all the information in the report.  The following is The Great One Mark Levin explaining why that is both impossible, unethical, and a violation of Law.

Do yourself a favor listen to the 10 minutes, educate yourself to the procedures of how and why this is supposed to work. Especially listen to the statement he reads from the Watergate Prosecutor.

Ah the rabble is howling……

By Patrick Van Roy On March 23rd, 2019 at 1:40 pm

As we all now know the Mueller Report has been finished. After 675 days and $25 Million spent on the Mueller investigation, and over 180 days costing god knows how much spent on the illegal spying on the Trump Campaign NO COLLUSION has been found.

COLLUSION isn’t even a crime.

The Obama administration Illegally used the IRS/FBI/DOJ/NSA/CIA to attack a political opponent. He abused his Power. He ordered the cover up of Hillary Clinton’s Crimes of Espionage and the destruction of a political opposition party’s candidate.

When the witch didn’t Win the FBI/DOJ engaged in Sedition to undermine a fairly elected President and to UNDUE an American Election.

They have all committed Treason.

Now that the fishing expedition is done after destroying the lives of 6 Americans because they had the nerve to work for a candidate the DNC didn’t like. The circus is not over even though they lost. There will be things they try to expand on and make crimes out of from the report, but all the indictments on the right are done…. it won’t stop the Dems from trying.

Now however the Prosecution of Comey, Yates, Lynch, McCabe, Rosenstein and a dozen others in the FBI/DOJ who BROKE THE LAW can begin.

The conspiracy goes all the way up……

By Patrick Van Roy On March 22nd, 2019 at 6:44 pm


Recently declassified testimony/emails/Texts from McCabe and Paige show that the White House and the DOJ/FBI had a major meeting about the grounds for the FISA Warrants.

The FBI was worried about basing everything on Biased FABRICATED stories. The information reveals that not only were they using the FAKE Steele Dossier, but they also were using “blog posts” from one of James Comey’s close friends.

Comey would leak information to his buddy who would then write about, Paige then would use the articles as evidence backing up their suspicions about Trump including them in the FISA applications as if it was corroborating their suspicions even though Comey was the source……

The Senior Members of the FBI/DOJ met with the White House and WH Counsel to confer on how to approach the FISA court with their fabricated evidence to get a Warrant to Spy on a Candidate for President.

This is Criminal Abuse of Power that goes right to Obama.

What did he know and when did he know it?

It’s Called Treason and Sedition

By Patrick Van Roy On February 15th, 2019 at 3:59 pm

Andrew McCabe admits in public and in a book that he is guilty of Treason and Sedition. That he along with the upper echelon of the Justice Department and the FBI conspired to undermine an elected President.

Things must be put in perspective.  First McCabe was Fired from the FBI for Lying under oath, and Leaking to the Press. His violations were so egregious that he was fired the day before his retirement to deny him his pension. He claims that he was doing so because he believed the President may have won with the Aid of Russia.

Now McCabe, Comey, Rosenstein, and Loretta Lynch KNEW that the only “evidence” against President Trump was the Steel Dossier. Even the target they used to get a warrant from the FISA COURT to plant spies and wiretap the Campaign during the Election Carter Page never met with any russian, he met with a CIA/FBI spy and campaign donor to Hillary Clinton who asked him if he knew about the Clinton emails.

Everyone in command at the FBI/DOJ knew the Steel Dossier was not only a piece of fiction but that it consisted of phoney stories created by the Russians and bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign through a Foreign agent. If there ever was such a Crime as “Collusion” that would be it.

There is no other “evidence” against the President.  There is NO CRIME that was committed to initiate an investigation let alone appoint a special counsel. This is a Conspiracy of the highest ranking members of the FBI/DOJ/CIA to cover up the crimes of one candidate while setting the other candidate up for false prosecution. To first undermine the Trump Campaign and if that did not work to create an insurance policy of false accusations and nonstop investigations to undermine his Presidency.

McCabe even admits later in the interview that they tried to see if they could evoke the 25th Amendment to have him removed. Brainstorming with “his team” who in the cabinet they could approach and whether or not they could get the vice president to go along.

That is Sedition and Treason…..

The 25th Amendment was designed for when a President has become incapacitated or needs to be removed after impeachment or in the case of physical or medical impairment.  It’s creation became an apparent need after Woodrow Wilson an already disaster of a President had a stroke in the second year of his second term.

Despite already being in poor health, and against the advice of his doctors, President Wilson crossed the nation by train in the fall of 1919 in a “whistle stop” campaign to win public support for his League of Nations plan. With the nation in a predictable post-war desire for international isolationism, he enjoyed little success and was rushed back to Washington after collapsing from physical exhaustion.

Wilson never fully recovered and finally suffered a massive stroke on October 2, 1919.
Edith immediately began making decisions. After consulting with the president’s doctors, she refused to make her husband resign and allow the vice president to take over. Instead, Edith began what she would later call her one-year and five-month long “stewardship”

What event had taken place? Had President Trump suffered a stroke, been shot, succumbed to pneumonia,  succumbed to Cancer or any major ailment? Has he been seen walking down the hallways of the white house arguing with the Portraits of other Presidents??? Nixon was…. No none of these events have occured.

A group of the Highest ranking members of the American Justice and Intelligence Departments of the United States Government Conspired on how to Remove a Duly Elected President with the 25th Amendment for no other reason than disagreement with his policies.

That is the definition of Treason.

Little Commie Liar

By Patrick Van Roy On February 10th, 2019 at 2:41 pm

On Feb. 5, the congressional office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a new blog entry under “energy issues” detailing her “Green New Deal” proposal and answering “frequently asked questions.”

The page, announcing an 8:30 a.m. launch on Feb. 7, is now gone, and a top adviser suggested Friday it was actually authored and distributed by the GOP.

So the crazy commie puts out a manifesto that I think she plagiarized from a kook that used to live in a cabin and blow things up…..  AOCs manifesto was praised and lauded by Democrats and Environmentalists alike. A good portion of the rest of the country peed themselves laughing.

Why 100% clean and renewable and not just 100% renewable? Are you
saying we won’t transition off fossil fuels?
Yes, we are calling for a full transition off fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases.
Anyone who has read the resolution sees that we spell this out through a plan that
calls for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every sector of the economy.
Simply banning fossil fuels immediately won’t build the new economy to replace it –
this is the plan to build that new economy and spells out how to do it technically. We
do this through a huge mobilization to create the renewable energy economy as fast
as possible. We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years
because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and
airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and
power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul
transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get
to net-zero.

So now Sunday the 10th 3 days later this is the tale….  According to AOC and her people the version SHE put out on the 7th is a GOP conspiracy. The GOP put a fake proposal out from her office from her website to undermine her credibility….

You can’t make this stuff up. I don’t know what’s sadder that this woman is in office or that New Yorkers consistently vote commies and crazies into office…. well they are representatives of “the people”.

The proposal was ridiculed immediately. It’s main proposal was the complete elimination of fossil fuels within 12 years. That to her was the easy part as she says above it won’t be easy to eliminate all greenhouse gas emission that fast, as she states here:  We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, I am sure politicians will still be able to fly but those farting cows well they’ve just got to go.

God save the Republic.

Her original proposal disappeared from her site, but I copied it first, it’s right here.

Common Sense

Here is the full story from NPR about the Report just released. Please read and comment on it’s conclusions and suggestions.

Parkland Shooting Panel Report Calls For Arming Teachers, Chronicles Slew Of Blunders

A blistering report released on Wednesday by an investigative panel looking into the Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida last year, exposes a litany of school security breaches and chaotic protocol leading to the deaths of 17 students and faculty, and it recommends arming teachers to prevent or slow future on-campus attacks.

The probe also tears into school staff and sheriff’s deputies involved in the incident, some of whom it says contradicted “ample evidence” captured on video and audio surveillance footage. The Public Safety Commission argues they either intentionally told falsehoods or offered differing accounts due to incompetence.

“All stakeholders—school districts, law enforcement, mental health providers, city and county governments, funding entities, etc. — should embrace the opportunity to change and make Florida schools the safest in the nation,” the report says in its opening pages, which includes short biographies of each of the victims.

“There must be a sense of urgency—and there is not, across-the-board—in enhancing school safety,” it says.

The analysis, comprising a 439-page report, examines “what happened leading up to the shooting and the law enforcement response.” That includes a moment-by-moment recounting of the shooting as well as a comprehensive scrutiny of the shooter’s life – Nikolas Cruz — from birth through the Feb. 14, 2018.

The report and its recommendations were sent to the governor’s office and legislature for consideration.

“We will not wait, we will be vigilant and we, like the legislature, expect compliance and change with urgency,” the Commission says.

Among the most controversial recommendations for the state legislature is that it should expand the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program “to allow teachers who volunteer,” and get training, to carry concealed firearms on campuses.

Under the program — named in honor of the football coach who died while protecting students during the attack — administrators and other staff can receive training to carry concealed weapons. But only teachers with a military or law enforcement background are allowed to participate in the program.

President Trump has repeatedly called for arming teachers as a means of making schools safer spaces. “We have to have offensive capability to take these people out rapidly before they can do this kind of damage,” Trump told reporters at a news conference in the weeks following the tragedy in Parkland.

He also reasoned that security guards “don’t love the students” as teachers do, NPR reports.

However, the Florida Education Association, which represents teachers, and the Florida PTA, both oppose the expansion of the law believing more guns on campus will make schools less safe, the Miami Herald reports.

Several chapters of the report chronicle myriad security breakdowns, systemic school security failures and the absence of a cohesive protocol that allowed Cruz to easily enter the campus and embark on the shooting rampage: Gates and doors were left unlocked while others were inaccessible just when students needed additional hiding spaces; there were no public address system speakers in the hallways that might have improved communication throughout the bloody chaos.

Additionally, the report notes that a recent shift in policy by Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, telling deputies that they “may” enter a building where there is an active shooter, where previously they were trained to enter, created confusion and led to inaction by eight deputies responding to the active shooter.

According to the report, Deputy Scot Peterson, the school’s only dedicated armed security officer on the day of the shooting, opted not to enter the building where Cruz had begun firing on students and teachers. Instead, he took up what the report calls a “hiding place” at the base of a stairwell for 48 minutes and only emerged after Cruz had run off campus and into the surrounding neighborhood where he was eventually arrested.

The report also notes Peterson was repeatedly untruthful about where he was from the moment he first heard the gunshots through the end of the massacre. In a statement given on Feb. 16, 2018, to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Peterson said that he was in his office at the time he heard what he believed to be firecrackers. But video indicates he was elsewhere on campus.

The Commission also found fault with the FBI for its failure to follow up on tips regarding Cruz and the danger he posed to students and faculty months before the attack.

Similarly, it details several instances in which parents and students allege they approached Principal Ty Thompson and Assistant Principal Jeff Morford with concerns about Cruz’ behavior, claims both men deny.

Still, the report says, “Investigators found Morford to be remarkably absent-minded in remembering details about various events and/or being intentionally deceptive.”

The panel called for a broad evaluation of existing mental health and social services “to ensure they are producing the desired results.” It stressed services should focus on “evidence-based best practices with specific metrics to measure outcomes.

Gov. Rick Scott, whose last day in office is Jan. 8, said he will review the report.

Now the fun begins

President Trump’s agenda is Dead. No wall, no Immigration reform, the Tax cuts will not be made permanent, etc etc etc We are now in a state of gridlock for the next two years.

The Democrats ran a great midterm, they had tradition on their side with the fact that except for three times in history the party that won the White House losses seats in the next election, but that’s not why they won. They won because for the most part they ran good candidates. They ran Veterans and some other good solid candidates.

The Republicans blew it. The House Republicans for 2 years have ran away from Trump. They got nothing accomplished in 2 years except one Bill, Tax Cuts. They made their choice to run away from the President and gave no reason for Republican voters to support them, while Democrats motivated their supporters to vote.

Turn out broke records all over the country. My youngest Daughter voted for the first time, a Democrat…. she worked the polls, rang door bells, handed out pamphlets. Her candidate Jess King lost, but I’m proud that she actually participated and more than by just voting. Both my daughters votes cancelled out my wife and my votes.

The newly elected members of Congress take office January 15th 2019. I congratulate them and wish them well in their agenda. May they pursue every campaign promise they made. Impeachment, Subpoenas, and Endless Investigations.
