This is How Easy it Was to Convince Trump to Reauthorize Arctic Drilling


Really, really bad – Performance is almost as bad as the support. I switched from Bluehost to #hostgator only two months ago and came to find they are pretty much the same experience being that they’re both owned by EIG. I would never recommend #hostgator to a friend, colleague, nor client. With no leadership nor concern for their customers, EIG’s purchase of this company has this ship sinking fast. I can only vouch for #hostgator and Bluehost, but my suggestion would be to avoid any of EIG’s brands when possible. tim Langley, Nashville, tN, fromthehearttn.com


President Trump recently discussed what it took to convince him to reauthorize drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: a quick phone call from a “friend” that’s “in that business” (i.e. a donor). He claimed to not really care about drilling until they called, then decided to quickly add it to his tax reform bill to appease them. Of course, he’d want to appease him seeing that the fossil fuel industry contributed millions of dollars to his presidential campaign and inauguration committee.

    Energy companies donate to all candidates, all candidates are shills. Trump is not a good person however he is also not the target/problem, he is just a part. if you are playing the game and are not on his side you are also part of the problem. Stop playing the game.

    I’m so fucking tired of the American government. It’s so corrupt that it makes me sick to my stomach. Being bribed constantly, being absolutely anti-consumer, and being fine with taking away freedoms in the name of the almighty dollar

    he would not see him as a sell out – HE CALLS IT SMART BUSINESS.
    LOOK AT ALL HIS SCAMS
    This is all part of trumps scam – stop thinking him as a puppet – trump is the one pulling the strings – if the rich want something then he will have them kiss his ass to get it.

    Can someone please explain why in God's name it is allowed for companies to give 500 thousand dollars donations to politicians?

    He's a CON MAN, sweetie. That's what he's always been. That's what he always WILL BE. Everyone who thought he was going to Save America and make it "Great Again" …which is to say: successfully racist and well-funded enough to bully every other nation (many of whom were ravaged by WW II while we sat in relative safety between the major oceans of the world) into doing thing our way …all of them were fooling themselves. He's still running a confidence game, still selling people out, and now he's getting the hang of politics and how to make it work for him. He wants to get revenge on the Clintons and their horrible gang for all the crap they pulled on him during the election. If between them they can work out a Deal that will make him look good, and still let the criminals off the hook, however, it will happen. But there are still a lot of people who are convinced that any time now he's going to bring back the prosperity that has left Anerica, most likely forever.

    He has no right to call our other republicans for being puppets of the establishment, he's part of that establishment! To fall for his rhetoric was stupid, he's known to insult and harass anybody who's not convenient to him, he's harassed a farm owner who wouldn't sell his farm to Trump so the orange can make another personal golf course! So no, it wasn't a relief, it was a lie!

  • Teenkitsune

    Why is this a surprise? Yes he's a master manipulator but he also has such a whacked out ego that as long as you keep stroking it he'll give you whatever you want!

    So much for Trump's campaign promise not to take money from corporations for his campaigns and policies, another lie I saw right through but numerous Americans still believe to this day.

    Past Trump seeing present Trump wouldn't call his future self a sell-out. He never meant anything (except perhaps the wall) that he promised on the campaign trail. It was just the latest in a long line of scams he's pulled his entire life.

    No it actually was Ryan Zinkie he came here to Alaska flew in on a private plane and had private meetings with the CEO of a large mining corporation as well as Shell Oil because shell has had a tapped oil exploration hole that the village elders of 300 people would not allow them to continue to drill we have fought as Alaskans to save the Arctic national wildlife refuge because it is over 1,900,000 acres of untouched pristine land left on earth untouched by man many ecosystems depend upon it and with global warming destroying it at a fast rate we had to be the ones to fight but because of global warming the 300 villagers who have the last say have become seduced and they allowed a pilot drilling to happen with shell oil but there were very reluctant and said no so Shell had to That oil it was actually Barack Obama who came here five years ago twice but open the door for the federal government to seize the Arctic national wildlife refuge we are also on the forefront of fighting and about to lose the worlds largest wild salmon Spohn and grounds in the world it feeds 1/3 of the worlds population’s salmon. 😉 Came in to speak with the CEO of pebble mine a very large copper mine that has been shut down and not allowed to start because it will pollute the salmon grounds and destroy the largest Spohn and grounds in the world we lost that fight as well because Barack Obama came in and open the door and left it open for the Trump administration because they all thought Hillary was going to win
