Trump Guts Obama-Era Methane Rules
To ‘Allow Job Growth In Rural America’

Daily Caller, by Chris White

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/13/2018 4:57:34 PM

President Donald Trump’s administration is revising a former President Barack Obama-era rule on methane emissions to help make the U.S. energy dependent while helping people in rural parts of the country retain jobs. “In order to achieve energy dominance through responsible energy production, we need smart regulations, not punitive regulations,” Joe Balash, assistant secretary for land and minerals management, said in a statement following Trump’s move to revise the controversial rule. “We believe this proposed rule strikes that balance and will allow job growth in rural America,” said Balash, an official inside the Interior Department. The Interior Department believes the

Excellent! Killing the odious Obama regulations alone are having a huge impact on the growth of businesses. By the end of this year the Democrats are really going to have heartburn. If things continue like they are now the Democrats will lose even more workers that they used to think they owned. It really makes me smile. I love winning!

I just received an advance copy of a 67 page proposed regulation from the IRS - the purpose of this is to clean up old regulations that are obsolete.

Over 37 years working with tax law and I´ve never seen this before. Excellent!

PDT is all over everything these days. He is not distracted or deterred. We have this energy measure, food stamp reform, taking it to PBS and NPR...he told us our heads would spin, and he was right!

May God bless and protect President Trump, and deliver him (and us) from the temporal forces of evil.

Ret. Admiral Michael Mullen appeared on Fox News Sunday, and was asked by host Chris Wallace whether Gina Haspel‘s involvement in enhanced interrogation disqualifies her from the job of CIA Director. Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 2007 to 2011, told Wallace, “I’ve aligned myself with Senator John McCain for a long time on views of torture and what the standard is.” (Snip) “And I recognize lots of intelligence professionals I’ve talked to think Gina is an extraordinary person with a great background.

Former FBI Director James Comey sat idly by on Friday while his friend, Benjamin Wittes, made a comparison between House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency analyst who stole and leaked classified government documents. During an event Brookings Institution hosted, Benjamin Wittes asked Comey about a recent battle between Nunes and the Justice Department over records related to a top secret source who has reportedly provided information about President Donald Trump’s campaign to the FBI, CIA and the special counsel’s office.

InfoWars’ Alex Jones attacked Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Friday, comparing the lawmaker to a rabid dog. "Maxine Waters is a mad dog. She is like Cujo,” Jones said, referring to novelist Stephen King´s horror novel about a rabid dog. “She has cultural, political, spiritual rabies.” Jones´s comments came in response to Waters saying that she resented President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan during a clash on the House floor with Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Penn.) on Tuesday. Jones then went after 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, saying the two women had the “same disease.”

The Senate Intelligence Committee is expressing an interest in hearing from former FBI Director James Comey again as part of its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The committee announced in a notice issued Friday afternoon that it has invited Comey and three other former top intelligence officials to a closed-door hearing next week. It is unclear whether Comey plans to attend the hearing, though former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and former National Security Agency (NSA) Director Mike Rogers are all expected to attend. The hearing, which is expected take place Wednesday morning, will

A major new front is developing after the House discovered the FBI had a spy planted inside of the Trump campaign on top of the illegal wiretaps.

Investigative reporter for The New York Post, Paul Sperry says in the summer of 2016, former CIA Director John Brennan, through his FBI liaison, Peter Strzok, with the help of former Secretary of State John Kerry were trying to set Russian espionage traps for minor players in the Trump camp.

The governor of New Jersey signed a law Wednesday allowing illegal aliens to apply for state financial aid programs to help pay for college beginning this fall, and the state has wasted no time in implementing it. The New Jersey Alternative Financial Aid Application for illegal aliens went live on the state’s financial aid website as of Thursday, allowing non-citizens not legally in the country to apply for the same financial aid benefits as U.S. citizens. Illegal aliens—including Dreamers brought to the U.S. illegally as children—can apply for financial aid if they graduated from a New Jersey high school, attended

Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan is using the “discharge petition” process to decisively split from President Donald Trump’s election-winning, pro-American immigration policies. Ryan’s disguised break from Trump leaves his successor, Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, in the hot seat, said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies. McCarthy must quickly decide whether to block or support Ryan’s unpopular push before it wrecks GOP turnout in November, she said. McCarthy “wants to be Speaker, so he can’t tick off too many people,” she said. Ryan exposed his strategy against Trump during his Thursday press conference, when he was asked

Democrats who oppose the Trump administration’s move to add a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. Census held a press conference at the Capitol on Tuesday, including Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr. (D-MO), who compared it to killings based on race. “Let’s not fool each other,” Clay said. “We know what this is.” “This is the Trump administration’s American version of ethnic cleansing in order to blur the lines of accuracy in the Census,” Clay said. “That’s what this question is about.” “That’s what the motivation is,” Clay continued. “This is to have an inaccurate Census so that they can

A spokesperson for Fox News said they have banished the guest who said torture “worked” on Sen. John McCain, calling him a “songbird” for his five years spent a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Air Force veteran and former military analyst Thomas McInerney caused massive outrage yesterday for his interview on Fox Business Network where he bashed McCain for his opposition to Gina Haspel‘s nomination as CIA Director. McCain opposes Haspel because of her history overseeing the use of enhanced interrogation techniques, and when McInerney spoke to Charles Payne about this, he bashed the Arizona senator. “The fact is

Former CIA chief legal officer John Rizzo fact checked Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein on MSNBC Thursday after she made an incorrect claim about Gina Haspel’s CIA background. During a Senate hearing on Haspel’s nomination for CIA director, Feinstein incorrectly claimed that Haspel ran an interrogation program in the counterterrorism center of the CIA based off of a corrected statement by Rizzo. Rizzo said, “this was one sentence in a 330-page book I put out four years ago,” and that Haspe, “before becoming Jose Rodriguez’ chief of staff, quote, ran the interrogation program.” He then re-iterated the correction. “In retrospect,

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the ´terrible joke´ a White House aide told about cancer-stricken John McCain and said if his own aide made such an error he would apologize. Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark. Asked if he was satisfied with the White House response, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, responded: ´No, not really.´ He called Kelly Sadler´s reported joke about McCain´s opposition to Trump CIA

As death flutters around the back-yard deck of Senator John McCain, it’s sad to read reports that the scrappy Sandcutter regrets picking Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate and wishes he had instead picked Senator Jos. Lieberman. The only person diminished by this kind of talk is Senator McCain himself, and the heroic Arizonan deserves better.Not that we lack for love of Mr. Lieberman. The Sun was the first newspaper to sketch the rationale for Mr. McCain to bring in Mr. Lieberman as his running mate. That was in an enthusiastic editorial called “The Logic of Lieberman.”

A Nigerian passenger has filed a civil rights lawsuit alleging that United Airlines personnel ejected her and her children from an international flight departing from Houston in 2016 because of her “pungent” odor. The woman says in a federal discrimination suit filed in Houston Friday that she and her minor children were boarding a San Francisco bound plane — the second leg of a three-flight journey from Nigeria to Canada — when an incident occurred involving a white male passenger that escalated to her being asked by United staff to exit the plane.

Former FBI director James Comey likened U.S. President Donald Trump to a self-serving Mafia boss Thursday during a talk in which he defended the decision to reopen the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the 2016 vote. Speaking in Toronto, Comey lamented the current state of American politics, suggesting truth has all but disappeared from public discourse. “Ethical leadership is about having external reference points. Near as I can tell, this president only has one reference point and it is internal,” Comey said during a conversation with bookstore executive Heather Reisman. “That’s very similar to a Cosa

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

From its start, the Trump administration has been plagued by charges of “chaos.” From the revolving door of senior staffers — including two secretaries of state, three national security advisers and two chiefs of staff — to the president’s brash and sometimes boorish personal style, to his politically incorrect taunt-tweeting, Donald Trump has refused to conform to his political opponents’ conventional notions of what constitutes an effective White House operation. And yet, the economy is humming, hosts of regulations have been rolled back, the unemployment rate is down, job openings are soaring, taxes have been cut and black

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of

Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) filed legislation Wednesday that would significantly strengthen the power of organized labor. Sanders, along with senators Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), among others, introduced the Workplace Democracy Act, which would make it easier for workers to unionize and enter into contractual negotiations with employers. The legislation comes at a time when the number of unionized workers in the American economy is at an all-time low. Fueled in part by the rise of globalization and technological advancement, labor membership has steadily declined from 20.1 percent in 1983 to 10.7 percent
