President Trump did not do anything for financial gain. the fact some of you can't see that just tells me your mind is controlled by left wing media who will throw you to the wolves when you are no longer of any use to them.

Thanks for the numbers! I've always known that the US has never been self-sufficient on gas and oil but I had trouble getting numbers that were dependable.

Is US total consumption still over 20 million barrels a day or have renewables cut that down somewhat?

The numbers fluxuate a little... like 7.5 million bpd to 8.. but those numbers are good.. We are using about 19,5 million bpd.

Trump did everything for financial gain.. He ran because he thought it would be good for his brand. Now he needs a billion dollars for foreign loans, legal fees and failing hotels and resorts.

THAT is bullshit. NO one has done more for this country. he gave UP his salary. He LOST Money and the left helped with that didn't they. He made good deals for this country putting it first. BIden has been an idiot, admittedly by the left for the entire time he has welched off the american public. He has done NOTHING. His whole family has benefitted financially from his (unearned) position...and so has he even to the point of benefitting off his own family in addition to blackmailing foreign nations. DON"T even try that stuff. You have to twist yourselves into knots to defend what is going on now with the whole democrat party. The left and the media have tried to eat him alive. Y'all wouldn't be happy seeing him destitute..you want his whole family destitute and then you like to kill them , revive them and start all over. There. is. no entity more evil than the left except MAYBE for the devil. And he'd be hardpressed to come up with the stuff the left does.

Trump lost money because he's an idiot. A half assed businesssman who couldn't make a profit selling ice water in the middle of Death Valley in July. Blew thru a fortune gifted to him by his Daddy & bankrupt multiple times.

And you Trump asslickers are enamored of his bussiness acumen. Trump would steal the eyes out of your head if he could get away with it.

Amazing.

Corruption can never be eliminated. The only thing that can be done is ensure that the PEOPLE have the means to kill the corrupt..

Hence the 2nd Amendment


No Leftist has an understanding of human nature.

That one suggests socialism, proving the ignorance.


Central to every one, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Liberalism, Progressivism, Nazism.....the Democrats...is the absurd promise that they can produce a new human nature.


Leon Trotsky wrote in his Literature and Revolution [2] :

"The human species, the sluggish Homo sapiens, will once again enter the stage of radical reconstruction and become in his own hands the object of the most complex methods of artificial selection and psychophysical training... Man will make it his goal...to create a higher sociobiological type, a superman, if you will"
New Soviet man - Wikipedia


. “Culture is a stubborn opponent. The Soviet Union attempted to create the New Soviet Man with gulags, psychiatric hospitals, and firing squads for seventy years and succeeded only in producing a more corrupt culture.”
Bork, “Slouching Toward Gomorrah,” p. 198

Don't declare that the US system is the best if you can't back up your claim.

And you're in the minority anyway as you should have noted.
A very simple test of which ideology, the American traditions versus the Democrat socialism, consider the Gates Test. When the gates are opened, do people rush in or rush out?

Under socialist regimes, they build walls to keep people in, instead of having so much freedom and prosperity that they need to build walls to keep the rest of the world from rushing in. If you leave a socialist nation, they call it an ‘escape,’ like Cuba, East Germany, where they shoot you in the back for trying to escape from their ‘Worker’s Paradise.’

That’s the Utopia that the Left says they’re building….using an interesting methodology: "Terror is an instrument of social hygiene" Lenin

If you vote Democrat, you are one of the folks he called ‘useful idiots.’

Hundred of political prisoners are being held by the Brown Shirts.....the Democrats.

Can you name any being charged with 'insurrection'?

No?


So.....you admit that your post is simply a Democrat lie (that may be redundant....better look that up, dunce).

Stupid people.. We were never energy independent. Production increased from 4.5 million bpd to 10 million bpd under Obama and we imported 8 million bpd.. We still import 8 million bpd except for 2020 when covid reduced market demand.



"Biden orders reversal of Trump’s ‘energy independence’ policies

On January 27, President Biden issued executive orders which did just the opposite. He revoked the federal permit for the continued construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which will cost 11,000 jobs (8,000 are union jobs), and he temporarily stopped granting permits for oil and gas operations on federal lands, which will reduce U.S. oil production and was immediately challenged with a lawsuit.



For the oil and gas industry, Biden’s orders specifically mentions methane emission regulations to establish comprehensive standards of performance and emission guidelines from existing oil and gas operations by September 2021.



Additionally, the order requires Texas to submit State Implementation Plan for Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) by January 2022.



The governments of Canada and Alberta wanted the pipeline completed because it would transport some 830,000 barrels of oil sands every day to consumers in the U.S. Proponents argued that the pipeline would transport a much needed resource from a North American neighbor instead of importing oil by tanker from far away countries.



However, Biden stated in his order the “pipeline would not serve the U.S. national interest.”



Supporters of allowing the development of petroleum resources on federal lands pointed out the change will be costly, and it was challenged immediately with the filing of a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Wyoming.



“Restricting development on federal lands and waters is nothing more than an ‘import more oil’ policy,” Mike Sommers, president of the American Petroleum Institute, said.



“With this move, the administration is leading us toward more reliance on foreign energy from countries with lower environmental standards and risks to hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions in government revenue for education and conservation programs.”



Sommers said a permanent federal leasing ban would result in U.S. oil imports rising 2 million barrels per day by 2030, and U.S. gross domestic product declining $700 billion during the same span.



Texas would lose 120,000 jobs, and about 1 million jobs could be lost by 2022 nationwide.



The federal government could lose an estimated $9 billion in taxes, lease bonuses, and royalties.



With dwindling supplies, many forecast rising petroleum prices and U.S. household could spend a cumulative $19 billion more on energy by 2030, the API study stated.





Biden’s executive orders will reduce U.S. oil supplies that reached historic levels of 13 million barrels per day just one year ago.



The increase in production allowed the U.S. to become a net exporter of oil and natural gas. It was labeled by some as an “energy renaissance” and others called it “energy independence.”

Are you surprised? Trump's father bailed him out for 25 years.. and he has failed in 12-13 businesses or been fined for fraud and money laundering.


Compared to this:

August 19, 2013: New York Times business columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin writes in his column, “In Washington, the line between lobbying and bribery is not clear-cut. Until 2008, R. Hunter Biden, son of then-Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., lobbied Congress regularly.”

"I guess you believe the con saying Biden got $1.5 B from the Chinese too?"
The Disreputable Robert Mueller


It is soooo difficult to determine whether Democrat boot-lickers are truly ignorant, or inveterate liars.


"The troubling reason why Biden is so soft on China
In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China. The deal was later expanded to $1.5 billion. In short, the Chinese government funded a business that it co-owned along with the son of a sitting vice president."
The troubling reason why Biden is so soft on China


Sounds a lot like the $145 million Putin gave the Clintons.




And now we know that Hunter had to give Quid Pro Joe 10% of all the graft.
