Flashback: Former Secretary of Interior Salazar ‘Not even Harry Potter can bring down gas prices’


Let’s take a look at Obama’s former Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar for today’s Saturday flashback. With this weeks doom and gloom of historic portions, it’s enough for many of us to want to turn in our chips on the whole thing. But wait. America is humming. The wheels are turning once again. America should be singing after eight long miserable years of Obama. So let’s return to the chilling days of yesteryear. But first the great news:

The only one trumping Trump’s Trumpet on the wonderful economy is Trump.

“We added 304,000 jobs, which was a shocker to a lot of people. It wasn’t a shocker to me.” So says the man. 

Despite a recent shaky period for the government and the stock market, American workers are finally enjoying economic conditions that favor them over their employers. … On Friday morning, Donald Trump tweeted, JOBSJOBSJOBS,” and who could blame him?

Department reported that payrolls had increased by three hundred and four thousand in January, which was about a hundred and thirty thousand more jobs than economists on Wall Street had been predicting.

The job gains were widely spread across the economy, with the construction, health-care, retail, and leisure-and-hospitality sectors showing particular strength. The report also showed that wages are still rising at an annual rate of more than three per cent, while consumer price inflation is falling, because of cheaper energy prices.

How easy we forget the old miserable days of Obama. Can’t anyone out there on the GOP side give the man some credit? Forget the Democrats.

Ken Salazar channels Harry Potter re: energy policy


With savants such as Salazar, how can we go wrong? I think this sums up the week quite nicely.

“Not even Harry Potter” can bring down rising gas prices and nobody knows when they will stop rising, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday.

“No one has the ability – not even Harry Potter – to simply wave a magic wand and say that we’re going to have gas prices at $2 or $2.50 or $3. It just doesn’t work that way,” said Salazar, whose department controls oil and gas drilling on federal lands.

“Where it will all end, no-one knows,” he said, then reiterated the view that Obama’s “all-of-the-above” policy would protect Americans from the volatilities of the global market.

Salazar said gas prices were set by “global economics.” The best thing to do in the long run is to “stay the course” on President Obama’s commitment to green energy.

Speaking of magic wands, this post wouldn’t be complete without this magic wand memory-

Barack Obama unfortunately mocked Donald Trump for having “A Magic Wand” during his 2016 presidential campaign. However he was very very wrong indeed… Here are some examples from 2017 of Trump using his magic wand to bring jobs home.
