Hardly a day goes by in which the media doesn’t showcase leftists celebrating the demise of the natural resource sector. Specifically oil and gas. Despite much evidence to the contrary, green-tech is heralded as the next great leap forward. The ideology of green energy is complicated and theistic and, frankly, not worth debating. If the tech is viable, it’ll succeed and if it’s not, it’ll eventually fail when the subsidies run dry. Rather than argue with eco-thumpers, why not just profit from reality? Here are five reasons why NOW is a great time to invest in oil and gas.

The past few years in Alberta have been unstable, to say the least. The political landscape has changed so much that most Albertans are confused and anxious. They're confused about where their own political affiliations will take them and they're anxious about the future of the province's economy. Everything Albertans thought they knew about Alberta has been upended. To make it worse, political myths have been swirling through communities across the province and deepening the divides. Most of those myths have been perpetuated by NDP supporters, but some of them come from various conservative factions across Alberta. To cut through the fog, it's important to separate fact from fiction as we get closer to 2019.

A further indication of Twitter's agenda is their stagnant stock price. Jack Dorsey doesn't seem to mind that Twitter's stock price has collapsed over the past 18 months, as he continues to double down on his lopsided censorship policy. The company's user growth is down compared to what it was in Twitter's early years and advertisers aren't getting their money's worth, as the company's Q2 results show. The people who continue signing up for Twitter are hardcore progressives and people starting a second, or third, or fourth anonymous account to harass and ridicule people they don't like. The actual “growth” Twitter sees in users doesn't include ordinary, unbiased, level-headed people. The average American or Canadian isn't a vocal, militant progressive or internet troll. The reason for Facebook's success is Mark Zuckerberg's ability to understand that.

Before this, several members of Erdogan's AKP had been implicated in a massive, wide reaching corruption scandal. Following several arrests and resignations over proven cases of fraud, bribery and money laundering, Erdogan blamed the entire investigation and its outcomes on an “international conspiracy” involving Israel and Fethullah Gulen. Erdogan forced some resignations inside his cabinet to clean up the mess, but refused to resign himself. Turkey's Minister Of Environment, Erdogan Bayraktar, claimed that Recep Erdogan had approved of everything that was done and should also resign. But, Recep Erdogan refused to resign and remained in power as Prime Minister following the scandal.

Ted Cruz is less of a conservative and more of a self interested politician. He is the kind of politician he has claimed to fight against. His entire theme as an anti-establishment candidate was nothing more than a ruse. Ted Cruz is a career politician and his failure to endorse Donald Trump has done more damage to his reputation than to Donald Trump's chances against Clinton. If any damage is done to Trump, it will be done by Democrats who use Cruz's non-endorsement as a way to divide Republicans – or create the idea that Republicans are divided when they are really united. If you doubt that Democrats will try to take advantage of Cruz's non-endorsement, just take a look at Hillary Clinton's tweet immediately after Cruz told conservatives at the convention to “vote their conscience”.
