US must come to the rescue of threatened US oil fracking industry

The US fracking industry aside from being a vital national security industry which has been responsible for the record growth in US oil and gas production and which has placed the US in a preeminent position in the world oil and gas markets, relies on $50 barrel oil to break even. Due to low demand stemming from the coronavirus and the current explosive oil production war between Saudi Arabia and Russia the US fracking industry finds itself in dire straits in danger of imploding financially with oil prices languishing in the $20 per barrel range. In order to salvage this industry there should be no hesitation by the United States government to invest heavily in this industry, to restrict refined oil in this country to US domestic production and to engage in a massive buying campaign to fill the US strategic petroleum reserve which holds about 1 billion barrels of oil. The cheap prices on the market for oil make this a propitious time for the US to purchase oil for the Reserve. If the US government does not step in to salvage this vital industry it will plunge into bankruptcy and totally lose the momentum gained in recent years. This would be an intolerable situation for the US to face, and is totally unnecessary if the US government acts in a judicious and expeditious manner to sustain and save this vital industry.

Closing gun shops as nonessential businesses is unconstitutional

The sale of firearms and the availability of open gun shops is being disrupted and shut down by many local, and state jurisdictions including Nevada which declares gun shops to be “nonessential businesses”. This blatant undermining of our second amendment rights is a rash and undeniably despicable attempt to eliminate our rights to own and possess firearms and protect ourselves,especially during a state of emergency. This is wrong and must be challenged in the courts by vigilant supporters of gun rights in the country. The right to bear arms and protect ourselves and our families is an essential constitutional right and attempts to bar these rights must be thwarted immediately. The attempt by progressive and left-wing local and state government in this country to close down the Second Amendment is intolerable and must be stopped. These governmental entities should be barred by the courts in their attempts to close down the Second Amendment in the possession of firearms by American citizens. This is a bald-faced attempt by progressive and leftist officials in local and state government to negate the power of individual citizens to their Second Amendment rights.

The future of Afghanistan and Islamic strategy

The US is in negotiations with the Taliban in Afghanistan at the present time. The long run expectations that this negotiation will be successful does not auger well in my opinion. The Taliban has as its central purpose the exercise of control over the country of Afghanistan. If we leave the country we can expect that the Taliban will take control of that country and provide safe haven for terrorists like I SIS and the like returning us to the same position we were in in 2001 when we went to Afghanistan to clean up the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. This will endanger our homeland once again therefore the entire process of this negotiation with the Taliban will be futile in my opinion. we can no longer count on the fact that problems in the Middle East are confined to that region but rather that it becomes a springboard for attacks on the US and other western countries. For this reason we must continue to maintain a presence through our military in the Middle East. 20 years ago this was not necessary but it is today. Radical Islam today seeks to infiltrate and also attack the US with the expectation that it will become the conquerors of the US in years to come and take over this country for its own purposes and convert this nation to an Islamic state that is under Sharia law.

Capitalism versus socialism – the voters’ choice in 2020

I believe in capitalism – the powerful economic system that promotes liberty and freedom, wealth and hope. The efficacy of this system has been demonstrated repeatedly and is at the heart of the American dream. Any country who opposes the power of private incentive, individual freedom, private property and liberty to achieve one’s ambitions is opposed to success in the very root spring of all wealth, small and large. Socialism and communism on the other hand enslave individual freedom and potential in a figurative iron box of a prison. To take from the individual under socialism and spread to the populace of a nation wastes the freedom, incentive, ambition and wealth of the nation and the individual. Socialism is an evil which has demonstrated repeatedly its propensity for failure, poverty and darkness. In the 2020 US election we will have the choice of socialism or capitalism the latter as envisioned by the Founders as expounded in the policies of Pres. Trump. It is vital to the continued existence of our constitutional government based on the precepts and principles laid down by our Founders that Armenians vote capitalism and reject the evils of socialism.

The 2020 Presidential election

Thus far the Democrat candidates for president are struggling to overcome a prevailing anti-socialist agenda prescribed to by the majority of Americans. The Democrat’s chances for presidential success in the 2020 election are doomed indeed. Nonetheless a recent story that has emerged is one that pairs Michael Bloomberg as the presidential candidate with Hillary Clinton as vice presidential candidate. This ticket if run could be the most powerful one that the Democrats can put forward for 2020. With Michael Bloomberg’s financial strength and Hillary Clinton’s appeal to many Democrats such a ticket could pose a major challenge to Pres.Thump’s attempt at a second term. Aside from such a pairing on the side of the Democrats I believe that President Trump should have no difficulty in overcoming any challenge that the remaining Democrat slate might impose. Notwithstanding a challenge from the Bloomberg/Clinton teaming, President Trump’s keen political insights and strategy, coupled with his outstanding successes in taming the border crisis, the booming economy and the nations national security posture which has been strengthened under Trump, it is still predictable that the President will prevail in the 2020 election. The Democrats have shown only the ability to generate a DC context of waste, abuse of political power and the shameful expenditure of taxpayer money while accomplishing nothing of importance to the US population.

Deep State bureaucrats infect Government Accountability Office

Recently the government accountability office(GAO), a component of the Congress, found the Trump Administration guilty of withholding funds from the Ukrainians. Let’s be clear. The government accountability office is a deep state creature comprised of bureaucrats who are left-wing sympathizers and anti-Trumpers. The malaise which infects the general federal bureaucracy creating the deep state likewise is at work in the purportedly bi partisan GAO. The American people have lost their power over the government to influence the direction of the country by the election of the President of the United States every four years. Instead lifelong left-leaning bureaucrats in the federal bureaucracy serve as a resistance mechanism working against the will of the people who seek to move the country in the direction of constitutional integrity and traditional ideals. The American people must deal with the problem of the deep state by forcefully asserting their will at the ballot box until the scourge of the deep state has been purged and democracy is restored to Government.

The next Iranian Revolution

The process details by which the balance of power in the Middle East is currently shifting against the existing Iranian dictatorship and in favor of the US are rooted in the Iranian population including its students who are vehemently opposed to the Mullahs and the Revolutionary Guard. Iranian citizens are angry with their government for the use of excessive power which has kept the population subservient to the government and under the boot of the Mullahs .While President Trump is in the driver’s seat in America Trump has vowed that Iran will never possess a nuclear weapon that will have the ability to threaten the free world. I predict In the next 12 months there will be a Revolution in Iran that will turn the country upside down resulting in a pro west regime that is more democratic and rational. This in turn will alter the dynamics in the Middle East and foster Ideal’s that are more in line with those of America. Iranian proxies such as Hamas and Hezbollah will lose their financial support from the new Iranian government. The threat of these proxies to the region will gradually diminish and pose less danger to peace in the region.
