Energy Policy

A lot will happen quickly in a Trump Administration. Donald Trump unveiled his 100 day action plan for energy-related policy. 
•We’re going to rescind all the job-destroying Obama executive actions including the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule. 
•We’re going to save the coal industry and other industries threatened by Hillary Clinton’s extremist agenda. 
•I’m going to ask Trans Canada to renew its permit application for the Keystone Pipeline. 
•We’re going to lift moratoriums on energy production in federal areas 
•We’re going to revoke policies that impose unwarranted restrictions on new drilling technologies. These technologies create millions of jobs with a smaller footprint than ever before. 
•We’re going to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs. 
•Any regulation that is outdated, unnecessary, bad for workers, or contrary to the national interest will be scrapped. We will also eliminate duplication, provide regulatory certainty, and trust local officials and local residents. 
Any future regulation will go through a simple test: is this regulation good for the American worker? If it doesn’t pass this test, the rule will not be approved.
Clearly, this is at odds with the program that Barack (and his little sock puppet, Hillary) put into place.

Does this mean that our national war on the weather will end? What will happen to all of the United Nations functionaries who make their livings from US funded anti-weather operations? Will Russia pick up their tab? Maybe Cuba will, they're very fond of Barack - aren't they?

With the war  against the weather coming to an end, what will the US Military do? That is their primary mission in Barack's Amerika. Will they re-task their priorities?

Maybe it's also time to reassess the value of remaining in the United Nations. What is it that they do -really? Oh, I know that people use those resolutions to justify going to war against Iraq, etc. but isn't just a bag of stale, fetid wind? What would the spies at the UN Office in New York City do if their diplomatic status was canceled? Would the UN relocate to Russia? Would they host the thousands of spies under diplomatic cover? What about China? And if the US stopped paying, who would pick up that mantle? Trump hasn't said anything about that (yet).
