Arrow Trump picks Climate "skeptic" + Fracking "advocate" as energy advisor

Still not a fanboy of Trump, but I will give credit where credit is due.

I am starting to like some of his choices for advisors.

I'm skeptical of him in so many ways, but its possible I could choose to vote for him instead of dying a young death.

. . . Donald Trump has asked one of America's most ardent drilling advocates and climate change skeptics to help him draft his energy policy.

U.S. Republican Congressman Kevin Cramer of North Dakota - a major oil drilling state - is writing a white paper on energy policy for the New York billionaire, Cramer and sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Cramer was also among a group of Trump advisers who recently met with lawmakers from western energy states, who hope Trump will open more federal land for drilling, a lawmaker who took part in the meeting said.

Cramer said in an interview his paper would emphasize the dangers of foreign ownership of U.S. energy assets, burdensome taxes, and over-regulation. . .

While the ultimate size and makeup of Trump's energy advisory team is unclear, Cramer's inclusion suggests the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's oil policy could emphasize more drilling, less regulation and taxes, and curbs on efforts to combat climate change.

Cramer has said he believes the Earth is cooling, not warming, and he has opposed efforts by the Obama administration to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

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 in the White House. He has also claimed global warming is a concept "created by and for the Chinese" to hurt U.S. business.

Trump only recently started building up teams of advisors on the economy, foreign policy and other issues to flesh out his platform for the Nov. 8 presidential election.

. . .

"The real opportunity for prosperity in this country has been to produce more because you have access to more markets,"
Cramer said, referring to the recent lifting of a decades-old ban on oil exports. "The last thing we need is more rules." . . .

He's going to surround himself with the smartest people available. That's his key to success in the business world and that will be his key to success as President.

Today he is up +5 in the polls over the Hag. Things are looking very good right now for us Trumpsters.

Even Huffpo today is calling Trump - Clinton a dead heat.

In a Trump - Sanders election, it's Sanders by 10%.

Makes me wonder if Hillary is the shoo-in once thought. And also if those at large delegates are truly etched in stone.

Personally I hope that Hillary is the nominee.

I think she would be easier to beat.

Logically Sanders would be easy to beat but this year is not a year where logic makes sense

You are 100% correct sir!! Living here in the Socialist Republic of Vermont, I have seen first hand the mystique of Sanders. The fools drink the Kool-Aid and fall for his baloney and rhetoric lock, stock and bagel. Now it is spreading across the country and that scares me to no end because I consider him much more dangerous to our way of life then the Hag and that is saying something IMHO. He believes in abortion right up until the day the baby is due, for crying out loud. Can you imagine that? Killing a baby minutes before birth and that is considered nothing more then Women's Rights? I just cannot wrap my mind around something like that, I'm sorry.

When he first entered the race I gave him ZERO chance of doing anything more then being a joke and a fool of a candidate like Martin O'Malley. Shows you what I know.
