I wish a very joyful Easter season to every person of good will!


It's about time for a little good news for the nation. "The triumphant USA is now producing more oil and gas than any nation ever has. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) said in January that US domestic production of crude oil for September 2023 set a new all-time high of 13,247,000 barrels per day. Happy fact: it was the most oil any nation on earth had ever managed to produce in a single month." (David Blackmon, March 26, 2024.)

We're energy independent again, despite every effort by Democrats to force us into electric vehicles and cut off pipelines. "Whereas [from H. Res. 987) then-candidate Joe Biden is quoted as saying, “I will end fossil fuels.” He can't do it now! It's fun to read all of the 32 "Whereases" in House Resolution 987, which Resolved, That the House of Representatives— (1) denounces the harmful anti-American energy policies of the Biden administration; [Etc.]. Whereas President Biden canceled the Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in office, preventing over 11,000 jobs, hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil per day, and millions in revenue." How sweet it is - "the light, sweet grade of oil being produced from US shale" that is.
"By 2012, production from Texas, which had amounted to just a little more than 1 million bpd in 2008, had risen to 3 million bpd. In November 2023, Texas produced 5,657,000 bpd, and would rank as the 4th biggest producing nation on earth if it were a standalone country." This is all due to American technical innovation, the fact that most of the oil-bearing ground is privately, not federally owned, and, best of all, "a timely law signed by Barack Obama. He probably didn’t really realize it at the time, but former President Barack Obama essentially issued a full speed ahead order in December 2015, when he signed an omnibus spending bill into law that contained language repealing a 1975 ban on exports of US crude oil." Now, if we can kick-start our famous military industrial complex to give Lend-Lease support to Ukraine and Israel, with the same determination, they will crush Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, and the world will be much safer. That means putting America on a war footing. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition - in that order!


America has six stated Constitutional goals: "to form a more perfect union, to establish justice, to ensure domestic tranquility, to provide for the common defense, to promote the general welfare, and to secure the blessings of liberty." It seems to me that the "common defense" should come before the others, or we will lose those "blessings of liberty" we have so dearly won. That means we have to fight those who would take our liberty. In World War II we had to fight Hitler, the Imperial Japanese Army, and Mussolini. The war took 6 years because America was late to the fight. However, once we became "Freedom's Forge", producing one third of all allied armaments during that war, nothing could stop us. At that time, we were able to turn on a dime.

Today, hypersonic nuclear missiles provide no trustworthy options to military readiness. The only meaningful deterrence to Chinese, Russian, Iranian, and North Koran threats is to provide a clearly audible NATO sound - that of the click of a nuclear trigger being moved from the safe to the firing position. Not a "hair trigger" but a trigger off of the "safe" position. This establishes a limit rational persons respect, "Thus far and no further" as France has notified Russia about its border. The enemy must understand that further aggression will trigger an immediate nuclear reaction, ending their gamesmanship in a nuclear vapor. In Yankee parlance, it's a "triple dog dare!" No room for misunderstanding here.
