Hmmmm....head scratcher

One idea might be a carbon tax that replaces the Clean Power Plan. Cramer is perhaps the only elected Republican to express support for such a fee. And his description of a carbon tax doesn't align with popular ideas about its shape. Most advocates want to direct carbon revenue toward cuts to the corporate tax rate or to fund clean energy programs.

"My idea of a carbon tax would be to help fund clean fossil fuel research and development, not to fund the government, not to punish fossil fuel generation, not to manipulate fuel choice," Cramer said. "Even a neutral, a revenue-neutral, carbon tax is inappropriate, in my view. But if we can have a very, very modest carbon tax to fund, again, the solution by utilizing fossil fuels like coal, I think even the industry would support that."

Polluting OUR Air......

Nuke China....

Douglas McArthur   had the right idea... Democrats.. stopped

him.... rats....

Patton had the answer for Communism also.......He got stopped....

Sure... he just "fell" out of his Jeep....

Trump is McArthur and Patton wrapped into one   !!!!!!!!!!!

Discipline is about to arrive back in the USA   !!!

Climate change... is erupting Volcano's all around the world this past week..

Trump. right now has more power then the US MILITARY.....

one Tweet.. and MILLIONS will gather up arms..... :)

Trump "tweets"  and Hillary... "barks barks barks"  oh what fun this is...

It seems as you are condoning war. I can't condone any war or violence. 

This discussion is over. 

War in defense is not only condonable but smart and in order to survive.

A better word than condonable and or smart would be mandatory. 

Make no mistake, IF you want to make America great and exceptional again, American interests must take precedent over everything else on each and every policy consideration. Obama has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are all made worse off trying to appease special interests. Trump is taking on those special interests amidst a torrent of hate mongering, especially from republican ESTABLISHMENT that has thrived off their corruption that Trump will bring to an end. It is either we the people or special interests represented by the ESTABLISHMENT...

GO TRUMP GO, A MAN WITH BALLS, WE HAVE TO PUT HIM IN AS PRESIDENT. IT WOULD BE AWSOME IF TRUMP WOULD TAX WALLSTREET FOR SCHOOL MONEY AND DROP PROPERTY TAXES , THE USA WOULD GO CRAZY AGAIN, AND PEOPLE COULD REALLY OWN A HOME OF THERE OWN AND NOT RENT FROM THE GOVERNMENT. NO PROPERTY TAXES WOULD MAKE 10 MILLION JOBS OVER NIGHT, AND THEY WOULD BE GOOD PAYING JOBS ALSO. WORK FOR THE USA AND NOT FOR THE WORLD. CONSTRUCTION IN THE USA IS THE BEST WAY TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT, IT IS SURE NOT RAISING TAXES ON EVERY ONE SO NO ONE CAN PAY FOR ANYTHING, I WILL NOT BUILD ONE DAMN BUILDING, BECAUSE OF PROPERTY TAXES, BUT IF I DID NOT HAVE TO PAY PROPERTY TAXES I WOULD BE BUILDING A DOZEN ALL READY.

Public safety is FIRST..... period..

NothIng will be for the better,, till the Cities are "cleaned out "  !!

Starting soon... with Chicago.... Baltimore.....etc...  

Major riots will start with the Democrat party.... Sanders people attacking.. Hillary  :0

Just like in 1968 when we went to Chicago with BAYONETS...   :)

Discipline will soon prevail... bet on it......

   Mike you are absolutely right, the cops and National guard didn't 'hide' or 'stand by' while burning and looting went on back in the late 60's. When Ferguson was burning and Baltimore was given over to the criminals BLM I kept wondering why weren't they using water canons ?? Could have sent everybody running for their safe spaces

Donald Trump, presumptive Republican nominee for president, has chosen a back-bench Republican congressman with a lot of experience in state energy regulation as his advisor on energy issues, according to multiple media accounts. Rep. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota is the Trump energy advisor, likely to play an important role in a Trump administration if the GOP candidate is elected in November.

Cramer told Reuters that Trump asked him to produce a “white paper” on energy policy. Trump has planned an “energy summit” in Bismarck on May 26. According to North Dakota’s Grand Forks Herald newspaper, “Trump has been light on details of his energy policy so far, though he recently told supporters in West Virginia that the coal industry would thrive if he were president.” Thanks to hydraulic fracturing in the Bakken shale formation, North Dakota has led a boom in U.S. oil production.

The newspaper described Cramer, 55, as “one of the country’s most ardent oil and gas advocates and climate change skeptics.” Trump has claimed that global warming is a hoax “created by and for the Chinese” to harm American business. Cramer endorsed Trump earlier this year.

Kevin Cramer was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012 and is North Dakota’s only representative. He serves on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, which has the broadest jurisdiction of any committee in Congress. Rep. Cramer is assigned to three subcommittees: Communications and Technology, Environment and the Economy, and Oversight and Investigations. Source: http://cramer.house.gov/about/full-biography

Cramer has held the state’s at-large congressional district since 2012 and sits on the Natural Resources and Science and Technology committees. He served on the North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC), which regulates utilities, from 2003 to 2012.

Cramer has been a Republican activist since his 20s and became state party chairman in 1991 at the age of 30. He made a run for Congress in 1996, challenging sitting incumbent Democrat Earl Pomeroy and lost. He ran against Pomeroy again in 1998, losing again. Republican Gov. John Hoeven (elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010) appointed Cramer to the regulatory commission in 2003 and he was elected to a six-year term in 2004.

In 2010, Cramer announced he would make another run for the state’s congressional seat, and became a Tea Party favorite. But the state party convention gave the GOP nomination to Rick Berg, who won the election in November. Cramer won reelection to a second PSC term.

Berg in 2012 announced he would retire and run for the Senate seat that Democrat Kent Conrad was leaving. Berg lost narrowly to Democrat Heidi Heitkamp. Cramer decided to run for the congressional seat for the fourth time, defeating a fellow member of the PSC in a GOP primary, and won in the general election. He repeated that feat in 2014.

Cramer was reportedly among a group of Trump advisers who recently met with lawmakers from Western states who hope that the candidate, if elected, will open more federal land for drilling, a lawmaker who took part in the meeting said. According to multiple media reports, Cramer said in an interview that his white paper “would emphasize the dangers of foreign ownership of U.S. energy assets, burdensome taxes, and over-regulation.”

Trump is exposing all the brain washing  done by Democrats....for the past 50 plus years...

"The newspaper described Cramer, 55, as “one of the country’s most ardent oil and gas advocates and climate change skeptics.” Trump has claimed that global warming is a hoax “created by and for the Chinese” to harm American business. Cramer endorsed Trump earlier this year."

The above is 100%...............FACT   !!

Actually Global Warming....

has been created by MIKHAIL GORBACHEV'S..." GREEN CROSS"

Feel free to Google it.....

China/Russia... all the same..... Communists....

Global Warming has been going on for ages,or we ,here in eastern Ohio, would still be under a Glacier!   Just sayin.

mother earth takes care of her self. it was reported on on the weather channel that the earth changes as it cools and gets hot, and the plates rub together and make volcanoes and we have had a bunch of volcanoes, so trump is smarter than most, to become a billionare he has to have some kind of smarts, money does not grow on trees.
