Clearly, some athletes are delighted for a chance to visit the Trump White House.

President Donald J. Trump is dedicating this week to workforce development, focusing on steps to make it easier for industries to design, certify, and scale apprenticeship programs.

On Tuesday, President Trump, Labor Secretary Acosta, and Assistant to the President, Ivanka Trump, traveled to Wisconsin to tour several job training classrooms and participated in a roundtable discussion with local business owners. They also met with victims of Obamacare.

Nancy Pelosi recently sneered at Trump’s first six months in office, saying he promised “jobs jobs jobs jobs” but what had he really done?  Methinks the woman watches way too much MSNBC!

White House Makes Big Push on Job Growth: Fostering a Skilled Workforce Through Apprenticeships

Appearing on Fox and Friends Monday morning, White House special advisor and former business woman Ivanka Trump laid out the Trump administration’s goals to fill the six million job vacancies in states across the country.

“We’re constantly hearing from CEOs that they have job openings but they don’t have workers with the skill set they need to fill those jobs,” she said.

These six million jobs do NOT require a four-year college degree.  However, they do require more training than kids typically get in high school. Trump’s focus this week is on how his administration can help foster apprenticeship programs.

When Democrats were in power, they actually cheered about how many new people were receiving food stamps and unemployment benefits under Obama’s watch!

And while the public schools in their own ghettos continue to graduate kids who can’t read or cipher, they ranted about how tax payers had some kind of obligation to pay for COLLEGE.

Obama promised to destroy the coal industry. Trump promised to bring it back.

Pundits called Trump’s promise hot air, but the Corsa Coal Company just opened the first new U.S. coal mine in six years.

1600 Notes

President Donald J. Trump is dedicating this week to workforce development. Across the United States there exists a skills gap that must be addressed. Americans are unemployed and seeking employment, and companies are struggling to fill vacancies for positions that require varying levels of skill and training.

President Trump’s Administration is committed to closing the skills gap and ensuring Americans are trained for the jobs available and the jobs of the future.

CtH: Just guessing that “gender studies” isn’t on the list of needed training.

Trump Believe in AmericaRick Perry: ‘First-ever’ natural gas exports offer hedge against Russia

“The Trump administration has made approval of natural gas exports a key part of its energy and national security strategy. The U.S. is the world’s top producer of oil and gas due to the fracking and shale energy boom.

CtH; I’m sure it makes a TON of sense that Putin “hacked the election” to get Trump in the White House, instead of former SecState Clinton who sold Russia a bunch of our uranium. /sarc

Trump’s Bridge To The Future

“By approaching the nation’s infrastructure problem like a businessman, Trump can actually deliver the goods — without spending the country into bankruptcy — by focusing on the real cause: Big Government itself. ”

Debunking the 97% Climate Lie

Fossil Fuel Use is Good for Humans

Climate activists want to make the vast majority of fossil fuel use illegal.  To justify this poverty-inducing plan, they repeat the lie that 97% of climate scientists agree with them.

TRUE:  Climate scientists DO agree that there has been a global warming trend over the past 150 years.  Some of them even concede that human beings have contributed to it.

HOWEVER, the warming trend has been tiny (0.8 degrees C), it started before the rise of man-made CO2, and it has abated in recent years even as CO2 levels have continued to rise.

1850-2012 Global temps and CO2

LIE:  The “97% of climate scientists believe we should restrict fossil fuels” lie was invented by a guy who wants to limit fossil fuel use.  He did it by cherry picking a bunch of climate papers and falsely reporting that 97% of them agreed with him.

According to the article linked below, far from going full on Al Gore about fossil fuel use, only a relative handful of the cherry picked papers even endorse the view that human emissions of greenhouse gases are more than 50% responsible for the small amount of warming we’ve seen over the past 150 years.

The author quotes one of the scientists whose papers were included in the bogus survey. He reported that only 10 of his 122 eligible papers had been included, nine of which were rated incorrectly as to what he really said.

Cutbacks at the EPA

Trailer for documentary “Collateral Damage” about Obama’s war on coal.

2017_04 07 Cutbacks at EPA by Terrell

Good article on what the cuts are all about: About those ‘devastating’ EPA budget reductions

There is ample room – and abundant need – for the proposed EPA reductions.

Energy Independence for the WIN!

Obama’s climate change legacy took a major hit today when President Donald Trump put his signature to a new executive order.

The Obama Administration believed that energy independence, job creation, and economic growth had to be sacrificed to protect the environment.  The Trump Administration says that’s hooey; we can do it all.

  • The new order rescinds a number of Obama’s climate change orders, including the Interior Department-imposed coal moratorium and the 2013 Climate Action Plan.
  • It also directs every executive department and agency in the U.S. government to identify impediments to energy production.
  • Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which has been tied up in the courts, will be reviewed and possibly find itself on the chopping block.  Ditto the Clean Air Act.

There’s a new boss in town

And the Obama Sheeple know it.  According to Hot Air,  EPA employees were so upset after Trump won that they had to take sick leave.  And a few days ago, an unnamed employee reported more than a few friends were still coming to work in tears.

But for those who are more committed to science than to politics, things are looking up.  In December, the House Science, Space and Technology Committee issued a report on their investigation into the firing of an Energy Department scientist.

The committee determined there to be an institutional disregard for separation of powers that amounted to “a reckless and calculated attack on the legislative process itself, which undermines the power of Congress to legislate.”

“Institutional disregard” is a polite way of saying that the Obama administration was so determined to have its own way that it actually forbade Energy Dept scientists from giving Congress information about their work and fired one who gave Congress information requested.

Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, chairman of the committee, said, “In this staff report based on lengthy record before the committee, much has been revealed about how senior level agency officials under the Obama administration retaliated against a scientist who did not follow the party line.”

“Moving forward, the department needs to overhaul its management practices to ensure that Congress is provided the information it requires to legislate and that federal employees and scientists who provide that information do so without fear of retribution.”

Fracking: Leaner and More Efficient

fracking-well

In 2014, OPEC began flooding the global marketplace with oil in an attempt to depress prices to counter competition, largely from fracking.  Oil prices fell from $105 per barrel in June 2014 to only $29.04 per barrel in January 2016.

But, OPEC’s strategy backfired.  According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), OPEC’s artificially low oil prices succeeded only in making fracking companies “leaner and more efficient.”  In fact, oil production here at home remained relatively constant.

Now, OPEC has announced it will be cutting production, sending the price soaring to $52.04 per barrel, illustrating why we need to decrease our dependence on imported oil and increase U.S. production.
