What’s Missing From Trump’s Sock Drawer

Alternate title; “Don’t be fooled by this fool’s folly“.  When Donald Trump splashed onto the 2012 stage of campaign of Presidential wannabes, I wondered why he didn’t send off his current crop of Apprentice contestants, but I suppose having the power to say “You’re Fired” is in the domain of Television Donald-ism.  Why let the American people have all the fun of actually voting Obama off the White House Island, with that corner office in the West Wing and all those fabulous views of the nation’s monuments.

.

I must admit that I’m no fan of Trump’s Apprentice television show.  Even more so since he’s got this guy Gary Busey playing the role of what, I don’t know, Trumps future Energy Secretary?

If Gary Busey is to Steven Chu, then we have a match made in scary socialist society.  A heavenly, heavy handed, government of excessive taxation and over-regulation.  Step 1 has already been achieved by virtue of a crisis not gone wasted.  The BP oil debacle shut down all gulf oil productions, and any future U.S. oil productions.  Yippee!! Mission Accomplished!!  Obama can now get his Libyan Bomber Flight Jacket.  Let’s hear it for a rousing Cap and Trade Plan!

.

Mr. Chu has called for gradually ramping up gasoline taxes over 15 years to coax consumers into buying more-efficient cars and living in neighborhoods closer to work. “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe,” Mr. Chu, who directs the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California

.

European gasoline is at $6 and $8 dollars a gallon and higher in some places.  In this country, gas prices are already over $5 dollars a gallon.  So, Steven Chu is getting his wish for the Europeanization of America.  First by asking the question, “What can I do to get you out of your gas guzzling automobile and into a Chinese High-Speed Rail Train“.  I see similar parallels to Atlas Shrugs, except in a bizarro world point of view.  Meaning, we’re living Ayn Rand’s novel today, except it’s about oil and Obama’s infatuation with expensive unproven green energy.

.

This brings me back to Donald Trump’s maiden voyage aboard the S.S. Canard.  He’s been above the fold in the national media, not because of his freak show of Apprentice losers, but his coy tease of running for President of the United States, or POTUS.  Yes, oh yes, the Donald’s been going after the Obama with gusto and mirth; where’s Obama’s birth certificate, what were Obama’s college grades, these are surely important questions to our nation’s problems.  Learning about Obama’s personal information is the most pressing national security question of these days.  This, from the guy with cotton-candy hair.

.

This morning Obama released his long form birth certificate.  If we are to believe the document is authentic, then all this birther noise should go away, but it’s not going away.  Already the document is suspicious because in its electronic form, the document could be easily forged.  The Smoking Gun has more.  Why release the birth certificate now?  Was the polling data that terrible that regime Obama needed to do something?  Remember that asking any questions about Obama was considered, racist.

.

.

While some are enamored with Trump’s birther rants, Sarah Palin has been spot on the policy issues. She rightly predicted, as with many of us, that the QE2 would sink as soon as the FED set that ship floating on our sea of debt. Listen to Trump for a good laugh, but listen to Sarah Palin for policy corrections.

.

As Obama rushes off to the comforting arms of the Oprah to joke about the silliness of the whole birther scandal, there are serious issues facing this country.  From the very beginning, Sarah Palin has been swatting at the proverbial policy flies that circle around Obama’s head.  Sarah Palin saw the death panels in Obamacare.  The regime’s minions took that clause out of Obamacare, then they tried to sneak it back in, only to remove it again.  Then they put it back in and ignored any bad press about it.  But then the media has been protecting Obama, and the media continues to protect Obama.

.

It was Sarah Palin that warned about the FED’s effort to stimulate the economy by printing more money.  So now, economists are asking, what were the expectations about this second round of Quantitative Easing?  As if, to ease the disappointing results, and reset expectations.  Let’s face the scalding hot McDonald’s coffee being spilled on the crotch, without a lid, and driving at 90 miles an hour.  It didn’t do anything but make a lot of stocks go up, along with food, gas, oil, and oh, what else?

.

If we were to reset expectations every time the FED uses the mimeograph machine to print up a Trillion dollars for a one percent increase in growth, then enjoy the smell of the dollar’s shrinking value.  QE2 didn’t stimulate the economy, it didn’t create new jobs (except in public sector), and it didn’t accomplish anything.  However, it will lead to inflation and higher prices, that’s a given.

.

Sarah Palin coined the phrases, “Drill Baby Drill“, “Drill Here, Drill Now“.  The regime promptly gave $2 Billion dollars to Brazil to drill for oil, and then gave $2.8 Billion to Columbia to build a refinery.  Obama’s then said to Brazil, “We want to be your best customer“.  In effect, Obama sent American Jobs overseas.  Let’s repeat that, Obama Sent American Jobs Overseas.

.

Yet, Obama chastises corporations that move from union stranglehold states, to Right to Work friendly states.  Obama threatens to take subsidies away from oil companies.  Obama said the rich need to pay more in taxes, yet allows General Electric exemptions from paying any taxes.  You cannot get any more of a hypocritical display of hypocrisy.  Always chasing, that unicorn and skittles.

We have real opportunities to create jobs here in this country, and the Obama regime is doing everything in its power to prevent it from happening.  For example:

.

Companies that drill for oil must go through extensive permitting processes and invest billions of dollars as payments for leasing the land, exploring for possible oil fields, equipment, etc. This is all done with the understanding that assuming they follow the letter of the law, there is a chance that this investment won’t be flushed down the toilet at the end of the tunnel. It appears that in this case Shell has followed procedure and that emissions will be below any standards required by the EPA:

.

After investing billions of dollars, Shell Oil has abandoned its effort to drill for oil in Alaska.  The EPA has refused to allow permits to drill for oil.  The EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson then said, “Don’t blame us for high gas prices.”  Really?!

.

And now for your listening pleasure
