Texas Oil Companies Work To Adapt To Falling Oil Prices
Three Republicans joined Senate Democrats on Wednesday to reject an effort to overturn an Obama administration rule limiting methane emissions from oil and natural gas drilling.

Only 49 senators voted to move forward with debate on legislation to undo the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rule, short of the 51 votes needed.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) joined all 48 members of the Democratic caucus in rejecting the resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

Graham and Collins had previously publicized their plans to vote against the legislation. But McCain’s vote came as a surprise.

    With RINO’s, it’s not what’s good for the county, it’s what works for them.

  • Leslie Woodhull says:

    Time to IMPEACH GRAHMNESTY, MCCAIN, AND COLLINS. UNDO THE ENTIRE OBAMINATION LEGACY OR BE IMPEACHED!!

  • Walter Flatt says:

    IF I WAS TRUMP, I WOULD VETO EVERY BILL HELPING THEIR STATED. HE HAS THE AX, USE IT. I WOULD ALSO HAVE THE FBI INVESTIGATE THEM.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST. PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON THERE.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

  • Ken says says:

    There you have it – 3 RINOs sticking their neck in the noose – now what will it take to get rid of them. There are 17 more RINOs in the Senate. They are well rewarded Elite Establishment Puppets AND on our payroll too.

  • MyronJPoltroonian says:

    ” … Graham and Collins had previously publicized their plans to vote against the legislation. But McCain’s vote came as a surprise … .” Really? No, not really. McSqueal’s been relishing his butt-hurt vendetta against Trump ever since Trump wiped the Primary Floor with him in 2016. I don’t expect him to change his tactics (or Depends™) until he ultimately expires.

  • roboteq says:

    McCain needs to go. I am about over my respect for his service and dedication to the U.S. through his military service. He made no attempt to win the presidency when he ran and he undermines too many issues that allow Progressives to continue doing harm to the U.S. economy and to U.S. workers.

    1. JOHN PHELPS says:

      McCain has always had to go.
      I don’t know why they continue to vote for him.
      It shows the problem with elections. IT SEEMS THAT IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE to get rid of someone , once elected.

      I voted for “Sarah”, not him.

    3. Leslie Woodhull says:

      that’s because he’s a bilderburg globalist.

  • Humble Servant says:

    Canada is sucking oil out of the same Bakken pool we would drill into if we were producing our own. This means we are buying oil from under our countries land from another country. Were is the logic behind this thinking. If it is cost effective to purchase oil from Canada what are we doing wrong? It costs you more to drive, stay in a hotel and eat in Canada. Why is their oil cheaper then ours?

    1. used_to_be_a_liberal says:

      Canadian oil is not “cheaper.” Hypothetically speaking, if a gallon of gas is 3.00 in the U S A , please then explain how a gallon of gas in Canada is cheaper, when they pay, hypothetically, 1.00 per litre. A Canadian gallon is 4.5 litres, which means that a gallon of gas in Canada is 4.50.

      1. MyronJPoltroonian says:

        Would that be in US, or Imperial Gallons?

        1. used_to_be_a_liberal says:

          either one, it does not matter.

  • girthdiggler says:

    McCain and Graham are about as useless as tits on a bull. As far as I’m concerned, they can (and probably do) both stroke each other, and need to get the F out of our government! They are ruining our new presidents agenda, which is the agenda of the people – as we legally and legitly voted President Trump in power!

  • Dea Whyte-Mansburten says:

    The RINOs want to keep us addicted to Saudi oil…and muslims

    1. girthdiggler says:

      yeah too bad people don’t wake up and realize that a country more rich in oil than anywhere else in the world, and sits right in our back yard (Venezuela), is desperately seeking the intervention of the USA to topple their out of control tyrannical, dictatorship, narco, human rights violator regime! The people have already said they would give us as much oil as we want in exchange for their freedom. They are starving to death and out of medicine and basic supplies, and being murdered in the streets by their own government simply for protesting, so they are super desperate. Trust me, I know because my beautiful wife is from there and I get briefed on a daily basis… What an incredible opportunity we have that just seems to be wasted day after day after day…

      1. MyronJPoltroonian says:

        And just what do you think the reaction of President Trump’s “Loyal Opposition” (in both parties) would be to any move towards that action?

      2. CharlieSeattle says:

        Not a chance in hell of the US doing that!

        Re operning Venezuelan oil exports to the world will lower the price even more, undercutting the marginal US gas and oil fracking break even cost.

        1. girthdiggler says:

          Just because we liberate them and take control of their oil, or some of it, doesn’t mean we will open it up to the markets. we could just sit on it.

          1. CharlieSeattle says:

            Gosh ya mean like STRATEGICALLY using up our enemies oil first while prices are low and saving our own oil and gas for the next 500 years?

            I have only said that 200 times in the last 10 years.

          2. girthdiggler says:

            bingo!

    2. bobnstuff says:

      Those rules aren’t stopping one well. It’s the price of oil that is the problem. It’s not worth bring it up for that price. We are building a nice pipeline to help keep us dependent on foreign oil. We get over a third of imported oil from Canada and will be getting even more thanks to Keystone.
