John James Lays a Great Agenda, But Attacks 20 Dissenting Republicans
"Things. John James, he's the congressman elect from Michigan, one of the finest outcomes of the November 2022 election was when John James won, he, of course, is all on board with Kevin McCarthy, very impressive speech yesterday on the floor, and I give him credit. Here's what he sounded like. We will counter the socialist movement of envy and confiscation with a conservative movement of access and opportunity. We will stand on the right side of history again. We will end the growth of government and we will stop 87 thousand new IRS agents from picking through your pocketbooks. We will secure our energy independence. We will ban the sale of petroleum from our strategic reserves to China. We'll establish a bipartisan select committee specifically to keep our eye on the ball in China. We'll address the crisis of the border. That's killing Americans by the day and improve both our safety and our nation and our dignity for those who come here in search of a better life for impressive congressman elect from Michigan and good for him. Laying out the Republican agenda as he should. And then, of course, he talks about the 20. We're still stuck at the starting block. The American people have told us by putting a Republican majority here that they want Republicans to lead and they want a government that works and doesn't embarrass them and we are failing on both missions that must change today. Here we go. I mean, come on. Congressman? Nobody's been embarrassed. You know what's embarrassing? Not acknowledging the popularity of these 20 Republicans.

But proving to you at a minimum, if you think this guy not a moron, proving to he's a colossal fraud. And so are the Democrats. Queue up for me this flashback clip here. From March 2020, Donald Trump, this is from the file drawer, Donald Trump was right again. Here's cut for. Here's Donald Trump in March of 2020 when oil was $24 a barrel due to the COVID lockdowns, the fact that nobody was driving. Now, Donald Trump had what, at the time, is very smart idea. Because the way the pipelines work, again, I'm not an oil engineer. I did an externship in my MBA program with an oil company for but I don't claim to be an oil engineer, but I do know a little bit about the business. Enough to tell you this. You can't just shut down oil pipelines, folks. It doesn't work that way. You can do significant damage to them. You have to keep oil flowing. You can reduce the flow, but you can't shut it down. You can, but you risk damaging it. So one of the problems we had during COVID and why some of the options prices for oil and derivatives one negative is that everybody basically stopped driving at the same time. Remember the lockdowns? I mean, you were driving on the street. You're the only person out there. We went from X amount of oil consumed to X minus a factor of millions. The oil needed a place to go in the pipelines. You can't just shut it off. Work that way. It's not a light switch. Oil went down to $24 a barrel. That is ridiculously low. For a commodity like oil. So Trump had this idea and he gave this speech while in order to keep it flowing and I've got an idea. Let's fill up the strategic oil reserves super cheap. You may be saying that sounds like Joe Biden's plan later on. Just not super cheap at $70 a barrel. Basically, Donald Trump wanted to do it for about a third less. Let's play Donald Trump first and I'll play for you. I'll read for you the Democrat reaction. In case you're under any illusion, Democrats are not hypocritical clown like frauds. Check this out.

Biden Taps Into Strategic Reserves to Slow Rising Gas Prices
"Now, I want to talk about the strategic petroleum reserve. The president has ordered the release of still more of our strategic petroleum reserve. One of my my friends online. Jerry Hendrix tells me, look, no one is talking about the damage being done to the salt domes where the oil is stored by the massive drawdown. We may actually have to move to a new storage facility because of the steepness of this drawdown and the resulting calving of the salt domes. I just can't believe the president is getting away with so naked a political stunt as taking strategic petroleum out to buoy Democrats hopes, but the price rises are too high. Nevertheless, it ought not to go on rebuked. No, it's not and it has not and it will not. And that's one of the things that will look into and conducting oversight hearings when we went back control of the Congress. Because these strategic controllers are not the political petroleum reserve. That was created years ago for something like the Arab oil embargo back in the days when we were much more dependent on foreign oil than we have since become. Or for instance, if you had a hurricane the size of Ian had not Florida, but just Gulf Coast and taken out refining capacity for the country. It wasn't designed to help the Democrats deal with the short term political problems, their own policies have created. Look, they want to do this. They want gas prices to be 5, 6, $7 down.

Did Biden Sell Millions of Barrels of Oil to China?
"There's a remarkable report, it's now in multiple sources, but you're not seeing it in the mainstream media. This is why you can't get news anymore. You can't expect to get news if you just got ABC CBS, NBC, New York Times. A lot of stuff going on. You're not going to find out about. So the latest is that although Biden said, oh yeah, I'm going to, I'm going to help people with gas prices at the pump. How am I going to do that? I'm going to release oil from the strategic reserve. What little did we know that 5 million barrels of oil from the strategic reserve were released and sent overseas? So, where'd they go? Some of that oil went to India. Some went to the Netherlands. And very interestingly, and I'll talk a little bit more about this in a minute, a good chunk of it about 1 million barrels went to China. Now, why would Biden do that? Ostensibly, the reason he's doing it is he's trying to help these other countries deal with the sanctions of non buying Russian oil. So he's trying to say to India, listen, you don't need to buy Russian oil. We will sell you oil from the strategic reserve. But the Indians don't care. They're still buying Russian oil. And the Chinese are still buying the Russian oil. The Chinese, in fact, that close in their buddies with Russia. In fact, as you know, Putin lend over to China before all the started basically to get the green light for the invasion of Ukraine. So the manifest stupidity of this is should be obvious for all to see, but it's not just about stupidity because as it turns out, there is a kind of corrupt economic motive.

We have no evidence that Joe Biden ever brought up the origins of COVID to Xi Jinping in the 5 phone calls that he's had. He's failing to call for an end of the fentanyl trafficking. I have not heard him mention fentanyl wants to fentanyl is made in China, pushed through Mexico into America. And it continues. He has canceled the China initiative. This was an initiative that was investigating the continued Chinese intellectual property theft. He's considering lifting the tariffs on China imports. He sent oil from America's strategic reserve to other countries, including China, and he is pushing electric vehicles solar panels and batteries, aggressively in his climate change agenda and many of those are made in China. And that's just part of it. Good for Maria bartiromo for saying that. And not to mention our elites do business with China, BlackRock is heavily invested in China, our corporate masters are intertwined with China. Bought and paid for by the Chinese Communist Party.

"News Just like uptick in the number of Americans applying for jobless benefits but by historical standards layoffs are still very low The biggest economic worry these days though is inflation especially those record high prices at the pump So will President Biden's release this week of a million barrels of oil per day from the strategic reserve make a difference This morning we turn to Mark Hamrick senior economic analyst for bank fraud dot com for his tag We did see a slight rise in the number of new claims for unemployment benefits this number is basically representative of fresh layoffs but those numbers remain historically low much lower than what we saw even before the pandemic and something else beneath that headline number continuing claims which tells us the number receiving jobless aid through traditional state programs 1.3 million lowest level since December 1969 We saw across the DMV declines in the district and Maryland slight rise in new claims for the state of Virginia Okay Mark now let's focus on the president's move to drive down gas prices Will a million barrels of oil a day from the strategic reserve make a dent in what we're paying Well fingers crossed Hillary there is some skepticism I think on the part of actual oil analysts about this move simply because first of all there's not been an actual interruption in supply in oil coming out of Russia It is going out into the global marketplace but obviously we've seen a rise in crude prices both the gauges of that that we monitor But the good news we are seeing a decline there We know of course in the state of Maryland where I'm speaking from a governor Hogan sort of let it effort to cut the essentially gasoline tax taken by the state I think the worry for the longer term is that as we take this essentially 180 million barrels of oil out of the strategic reserve it's just alone And so at some point that does need to be quote unquote paid back And the concern is that could maybe have an impact on prices down the road But I think The White House is clearly under pressure and that pressure has a political component to it People are quite I think upset about the state of inflation and gasoline prices And so The White House could point to this and say hey look we're doing something That's Mark Hamrick senior economic analyst for bank.

Trish Addresses Inflation and Gas Prices
"Like to just quickly get back to this inflation issue because I heard some policy ideals that came out of Joe Biden last night, but none of them fortunately, I hope. Do not have a chance of becoming a reality. You look at what's going on right now in the stock market. And of course, people are trying to digest all of this news. It's coming to us out of Europe, you've got Powell that spoke the Humphrey Hawkins testimony. They're on Capitol Hill and Paul's indicating you know what we're going forward with this. We're going to raise rates this month. I think you've got to under the circumstances with all this massive inflation. There's a chance that maybe he doesn't follow through with as big a rate cut or as many rate hike. Hike, I should say hike. Paul and Joe Biden there were as many rate hikes as anticipated, but we'll see. We'll see how this all shakes out. I do think it's time. I mean, it was time a year ago for Paolo to do something. So this to me is a positive positive element in terms of gas prices though and what their effect on the economy will be. They're going to be significant. I actually went to fill up my gas pump. I drive one of those really offensive gas guzzling SUVs. You're not supposed to have, but I've got one. I've got one, and I filled up the tank and it was over $4 a gallon, and I noticed that. I was talking to the guy and we were chatting about it and he's like, yeah, and this is despite the SPR, but you know, the SBR. That's gonna last you no time at all. I'm sorry, you can release all those strategic reserves, which by the way, Donald Trump bought a really low price. Joe Biden and company were accusing him of just trying to prop up the energy industry at the time. But it was pretty smart to buy it right when it was $10 a gallon, as opposed to a $110 a gallon, which is where we're heading. In fact, I would argue it would probably be one 30 a gallon, possibly one 50 a gown in the relative near future, which could translate into, I don't know, $9, a gallon that the gas pump, it's not inconceivable to see gas prices more than double from where they are right now.

"Which crowds in pub- private capital and makes the government makes the private economy more productive. There's more private capital that helps you know. People build a create goods and services Now however the the new revenue provisions are bit smaller. And so that we're we're adding up a little bit more government debt and we're going to crowd out a little bit more private capital. Gdp is a little bit lower in this version than it wasn't the last one two things in terms of the revenue. Sources that that. I wanted to bring up with you and get your thoughts on. Get your explanation for one being. I understand that part of this could also be selling oil from the strategic reserve which is obviously something that i don't think i don't know historically if it's normally tied in maybe this is a a new occurrence in the process. How can you. Can you explain that a little bit more so I'm also not familiar with any previous example where this was used to fund it there. Be some I'm just not aware of them. But basically the united states manages or or has a large stockpile of oil for I'm not gonna say emergencies but for national for the national benefit and You know right now. They're going to sell off some fraction of that. The private market Which you know which will bring in a significant revenue especially since oil prices are are pretty reasonable these days but However at some point in the future we and i think most people anticipate that. We'll need just of back that oil to replenish that stockpile so the money that comes from that it's sort of a temporary windfall that someday we'll have to pay back and that sort of why we consider that additional government borrowing or additional government debt. Because we anticipate that the government will need to to re re Re up that stockpile at some point. And i guess the question is wh- those stockpiles. Come from where. Because we've obviously seen the stories in the last few years about how the united states has become a net positive producer of oil here in the us In general the fact that we're able to actually you know export oil to other countries over the last couple of years right so i'm not Tremendously familiar with the exact mechanics of how stockpiles replenished. But basically they do. They do operations on the open market where they buy and sell these reserves to market participants. Okay the other element. That that i was hoping you could explain. Is this category of dynamic scoring. Which accounts for about fifty. Six billion dollars When i read the numbers. I if you can take us through what that is and how that how that obviously impacts the bottom line here absolutely So when when we create new public infrastructure We create additional economic activity so public infrastructure raises people's wages it raises the returns to capital. It makes people more productive and that's reflected in higher gdp and what higher gdp really is. It's additional income. So income is taxed at the federal level and that generates additional revenues. And what they're doing is that they're counting some of those revenues In the funding for this bill. So they do their own analysis. When penn warn budget model does its analysis that's automatically integrated into our analysis so we have a very big large dynamic model and part of it is figuring out how much new tax revenues coming from this policy so that's automatically built into our analysis. We're joined on the line right now by john. Huntley of the pen morton budget model as we are recapping the infrastructure bill which passed in the us senate.
