President Trump Signs Resolution Eliminating SEC Disclosure Rule For U.S. Energy Development…

H.J. Resolution 41, “disapproving the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rule on disclosure of payments by “resource extraction issuers”, ie. energy companies.

Foreign energy companies, developers and extractors do not have to publicly show their financial transactions with foreign governments.  An existing U.S. SEC rule designed to provide disclosure on corporate ‘donations’ to foreign governments put our energy corporations at a disadvantage.

The existing rule meant that U.S. corporations were revealing where and when they were planning to invest in energy development.  Competing nations energy companies were using that public disclosure information to out maneuver the U.S. on contracts.

Prior administrations and prior congressional leadership didn’t see a problem with the disadvantage due to the inherent political ideology.  Prior U.S. political leadership maintained a globalist perspective, they advocate for globalization, which inherently means they were comfortable with the U.S. disadvantage because it spread the energy development wealth to lesser nations.

Congress voted earlier this month to kill the existing SEC rule and sent it on to Trump, highlighting the rules impact in putting American energy companies at a disadvantage.  [Insert probable Trump conversation with T-Rex here].

Today with HJ Resolution 41 President Trump removed the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) advanced notification rule, and leveled the playing field for the U.S. energy companies.

      I’ve always thought of her as establishment GOPe, and NeverTrump Lite. She did what she was told but only took a strong or bold stand on issues it was safe to do so. I’ve watched for several years her Facebook and all of her posts have been carefully tailored as if by a PR firm. And she NEVER speaks to the people.

          All blacks in congress including the couple of Republicans are members of the CBC. Allen West was when he was a Congressman. Love is a good, moral, religious woman. What has she said or done or what fiscal or social positions has she taken that would give anyone the idea she’s a leftist or racist? Check out her website: https://love.house.gov/

          FYI: she spoke to thousands at the WDC March For Life. Her speech was beautiful and heart-felt. If you’re interested in knowing when she’s in her district so you can hear her speak and ask her questions, you may certainly request to be put on her email list if you are one of her constituents.

              They were globalist tares among the Tea Party wheat. Sadly, just about all the Tea Party women of the last couple election cycles were agents of the Uniparty: Ayotte, Love, Ernst, etc.

              The GOPe realized they couldn’t beat the liberty movement so they embedded their own agents into the group to subvert.

                  IMO, the Tea Party as it is, is dead. It has been corrupted and co-opted too much to become the smaller govt, more conservative movement that it began as. Think about how many duds got in office as a Tea Party candidate: Ernst, Cotton, etc. and look how many of them went against DJT. They are all beholden to Wall St and lobbyist groups for the cash.

    While the “smart set” in the media and the think tanks and elsewhere are focused on shiny things, Our Donald is working his tail off to get the American economic engine roaring again. He is always focused on helping us – the “little people”, the average joes, the (formerly) forgotten men and women of America who make this country work. Donald is working for us. He is a people’s president, not a think tank president. And when he wins re-election in 2020 by a bigger landslide than Reagan the “smart set” will, once again, be scratching their heads trying to figure out what happened.

    One thing I think people need to remember and anticipate is that this administration is pushing a lot of change and that inherently will require him to be nimble and reactive. Others will pass that off as chaotic, but its really just dealing with impediments and issues that arise. The mission is clear but the obstacles arent, so its important to have faith. Some people on the internet are acting like Mike Flynn resigning is leading to WW3 or something. I cant buy into that nonsense. trump didnt work so hard campaigning to surrender now! Everyone wants to pretend they are experts in what trump is doing when they dont really have any more knowledge than the rest of us. Ill trust the guy that just beat the media, hollywood, globalist, bushs, clintons and the GOPe over any twittering chicken littles any day of the week. Until such time its shown otherwise, I wont overreact to everything with such cynicism.

    Good governance as shown by this commonsense law is why we elected him and its ultimately why he will succeed!

        Just want to say that this, and the other House Resolutions that President Trump has signed, are a hopeful sign.

        He is getting some cooperation from the House, yous see. Kudos to President Trump.

        Now, we have a good thing to sweeten the medicine for our House Reps:

        “Thank those of you in the House who voted for HR 41″ (or choose another from the list above ) We who support our President are happy to see the House and the POTUS working together on these matters.

        However,…”

        Just a spoonful of sugar can help these guys to accept the bitter medicine you might be putting in that next paragraph.

        Or a simple call or note to your reps office to say thank you might be nice.

        Just a thought for those of you who believe in the carrot and stick theory. Here’s the carrot.

        An “attaboy” for good stuff might be hard to find: these are “attaboys.”

        Use them judiciously.

        Those few reps who are worried that we do not support them might do more pro-Trump if we support what they do now that is pro-Trump.

        If no matter what they do, we scream all the same, there is no incentive and in fact they might become increasingly hostile or apathetic to getting things done that POTUS wants done.

        We do our POTUS no service by ranting in those (hopefully less and less) rare occasions when we should recognize cooperation.

          It is a bummer for those of us who live in states in which our representatives are boobs working against our president. I’m in New Mexico, we have Heinrich and Udall and a complete moron, Michelle Lujan Grisham. The only good one we have is Steve Pierce. Heinrich actually posted a petition to get rid of the “white supremacist Steve Bannon” on FB. Lujan Grisham is trying to meet with ICE here. Heinrich and Udall both voted against President Trump’s cabinet members. It is truly no representation at all. I have emailed them as well as Mitch McConnel and Speaker Ryan. I also think it’s important to let POTUS know we support him. This has to be hard on his family.

      We didn’t elect a king. POTUS will need cooperation from House and Senate between now and the next time these guys are up for reelection to get things done legally.

    Inside The Secret Campaign To Oust Flynn

    “The Obama administration knew that Flynn was going to release the secret documents around the Iran deal, which would blow up their myth that it was a good deal…they all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced.”

    As mentioned by President Trump, the author and primary sponsor of H. J. Res 41 is Bill Huizenga (R-MI02-Zeeland). What I’d like to add is that Mr. Huizenga is my congressman, as I live in that portion of Kent County that’s in Michigan’s 2nd Congressional District (and I’m beginning to view Justin Amash as a bit of an embarassment to the movement). Bill mentioned this resolution at the 2nd District Caucus session of the MIGOP State Convention last weekend (to a standing ovation).
