Oil & Gas Workers Snub DeSantis, Endorse Donald Trump on Same Day

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been on a four-day fundraising and campaign stop in Texas this week. He’s attending fundraisers with the same George W. Bush/Karl Rove RINOs in the Texas House of Representatives who just impeached MAGA Attorney General Ken Paxton on false charges. (Paxton was acquitted by the Texas state Senate.)

The big, triumphant moment of the DeSantis trip was supposed to happen on Wednesday, when he unveiled his 2024 energy plan in Midland, Texas. Like everything with the DeSantis campaign, it didn’t go as expected.

As for the DeSantis energy plan, it was so-so. DeSantis says he wants to increase oil exploration to the point where it gets the price of gas back down to $2 a gallon in 2025.

“I will ensure that this country does not have to rely on hostile nations for its energy needs ever again,” said DeSantis.

That’s all well and good, but how is that any different from the energy plan of almost every other Republican candidate in the past 40 years (except one obvious one)? George W. Bush or Bob Dole or even Ronald Reagan could have given that speech.

 

As DeSantis was giving that speech in Midland, the Oil and Gas Workers Association headquartered in Odessa, TX—just a few miles down the road—was endorsing Donald Trump as their candidate for 2024. Ouch.

OGWA President Matt Coday said during the announcement, “Governor DeSantis says a lot of the right things, right, but his track record isn’t there.”

Trump’s record, on the other hand, involved pulling the US out of the disastrous Paris Climate Agreement, which would have gutted oil and gas jobs while impoverishing the United States even further. He pulled out of Iran’s nuclear deal. Plus, Trump fought to preserve oil and gas jobs in America. President Trump also go the Keystone XL Pipeline construction back on track, until Joe Biden torpedoed it (enraging our Canadian allies in the process).

We could go on and on about Trump’s track record when it comes to oil and gas, but you get the point. He has an established track record on energy. DeSantis does not.

When he was in the House of Representatives, DeSantis wanted to end the ethanol industry in the Midwest. Ethanol is a huge industry in states like Iowa and Nebraska, because of their corn crops. DeSantis has since flip-flopped and now says he supports fuels with higher ethanol blends.

And contrary to popular belief, DeSantis was not a supporter of President Trump’s America First energy policies. In 2019, DeSantis signed an executive order declaring that he would “oppose all off-shore oil and gas activities off every coast in Florida.” In that same executive order, he vowed to oppose all fracking in Florida.

In 2020, the DeSantis administration bought 20,000 acres of land in the Florida everglades to permanently set them aside and “protect” them from oil exploration. DeSantis says a lot of good things, but as always, the actions of a politician are what you have to watch.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden has drained the Strategic Petroleum Reserve from 650 million barrels to about 300 million barrels. Every time he drains the reserve and sends oil to China, it causes the price of gas to drop a little bit. This simply proves that if we drill for more oil, it will make gas cheaper. Not that we expect Joe Biden to do anything differently. He’s determined to bring about Klaus Schwab’s “Great Reset” which will eliminate all personally owned, gas-powered vehicles. Only the people who can afford an electric car will have vehicles by 2035 if we don’t stop Team Biden in next year’s election.

The polling, of course, shows us that Donald Trump is the one Republican candidate who can do that. Trump is polling four points ahead of Biden in head-to-head matchups, while DeSantis trails Biden by several points. A lot of that difference is from independent and Democrat voters who prefer Trump over Biden—the “secret Trump supporters” who were a huge phenomenon in 2016.

Energy is the big cornerstone of President Trump’s America First economic system. Cheap energy drives everything else, and Donald Trump is ready to implement that plan all over again. It works, and the oil and gas industry knows it works. As Trump says in every rally, the plan is to “Drill, baby, drill!”

  1. People seem to go blind and not see what DeSantis has done for Florida. He kept schools open when everybody else was shutting down. He took away the stupid mask that were worthless. I truly believe DeSantis would make a better president than Trump. Trump talks a lot but doesn’t follow through, He painted fuchi as a saint but in reality he is the devil who killed over a thousand people with his lies. Now Trump says he should have fired fuchi, a little late for that trump. Trump said he was going to end the war in afganistan but didn’t do that. No he left it up to Biden who killed our service members and left behind thousands of americans. DeSantis says what he will do and he follows through and gets the job done. Lets not make another mistake. Trump has great rallies, but people you need to remember what he doesn’t do and that is he doesn’t do what he says he will . Like most people in office promise you the world and then once they are in they forget all the promises and look out for number one themselves.

    1. Trump kept more of the promises he made as a President than any other Republican or Democrat in the years since Ronald Reagan! I really like Governor DeSantis, but Trump did honor more campaign promises than any President since Ronald Reagan! Yes, he made the very naive and grave error of believing the evil and devastating lies of Dr. Anthony Fouchi! Trump should have fired him along with many others like the FBI director! I do believe that Governor Ron DeSantis will make a great President! Trump’s problem was often trusting the wrong people! He was not and likely still isn’t a Bible believing, Born again Christian! You will not have God’s spiritual Gift of Discernment if you are not a Born again Christian, and not many Born again Christians seem to be exercising that spiritual Gift, if, indeed they have received it by the Holy Spirit! The Holy Bible says in 1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 3 And every spirit that confesseth Not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is Not of God: and this is that spirit of Antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

  2. Whale our killer medicine is on the lose, a few Facts one must consider when dealing with the Godless mass baby Killing medical cartel, So far that evil industry has paid out over 5 Billion in fruad fines! [Frauds that cost many lives, with no jail time for the perps!] [you can look that up] Also look up the Johns Hopkins [low-ball] iatrogenic study, claiming “medicine” [only] kill’s 250,000 annually, i.e. the 3rd. leading cause of death in the USA! The well cited book, Death by Medicine by Dr. Null document’s 800,000 annual iatrogenic deaths! i.e. The Leading cause of Death! i.e. Killing more Americans than ALL the wars USA has Ever been in!!! [Fact] NOW in CA. if a real doctor thinks the “wrong” way on Ivermectin or HCQ, the sickness industrial complex in cahoots with pimp Politics will de-license any offending doctor! It’s the [cough] “LAW” [barf!] I suppose a Godless sex degenerate LQBTQIA promoting nation’s deserves no better!

  3. Yes when it comes to who is better at getting our Entergy up its TRUMP. We need to drill are on oil we have it so we need to use it. STOP being babies about it stop the crying about what it well do to the land , we have to get back to america first and stop using from other countries. America has what it takes to serve us lets keep it that way. Let’s vote somsone in who well keep America first and stop the borders close them and deportation the ones that got in . We need to start coming first stop the shit and help true America first or this great nation will not be ours no more its taken over. So please stop voting for democrats get them the hell out . Remember America first always.

  4. Evidently Ms Kelley’s comment was made without reading your article, as it actually included at least a few examples of Trump being first president to follow through with necessary actions to not only improve economy but did so in ways that exceeded expectations & successfully fulfilled a few specific promises made while campaigning as a candidate!

  5. The issue isn’t who is better, DeSantis or Trump. Both men are great! Both men would be so much better than what we have in the Whitehouse. There policies would be similar; however, the question remains can Trump actually beat Joe Biden because of all of the legal battles he needs to fight. Moreover, if he does win, do you really think they will stop going after him? Of course not! Can he be effective with all of the legal issues that he will continue to have? DeSantis has no legal issues. He will be able to devote all of his time and energy to turn this country around and away from socialism. I love them both, but this is the real issue. Be smart America!

    1. It’s my understanding that the establishment of Repub party is backing DeSantis, that is right there is enough not to vote for DeSantis….

  6. I don’t think TRUMP will fall for any of that Fauci stuff anymore and will look for advisers who he can trust. TRUMP would never have left Afghanistan in the way that Joe did for sure as he loves our military, and they are honored by him. He also obtained respect on the world scene with foreign leaders and didn’t fall for this “global warming” hoax that’s perpetuated by this administration. He had the border under control and the economy gaining jobs in all aspects for all people. I could go on but if you don’t get the gist of it by now you never will. He is a leader and the one I want!

    1. You said it the best !
      Voters know President Trump’s Foreign Policy, they know we had the best economy, they know he loves the Military and our Veterans.
      He took no salary and only cared for his people. The Establishment cares only for their pocketbook, their donors and each other.
      President Trump has a big heart and has helped many many folks without any of us being aware.
      Trump 2024

  7. And, what do You think Biden has accomplished, as far as making our country safer, or anything else to help to make life better for “we the people” ?

  8. This article was obviously written by a Trump lackey, paid to do it. Trump has been attacking DeSantis every day for the last 6 months spending millions upon millions to do it. That alone should drive people to the DeSantis camp. The only thing that Trump can really be counted on to do is attack everybody that he sees as a threat to his own little world. Since he spends all his time doing this, he’s not concentrating on the good of this country.
