Iraq…here we go again.

Here we go again. President Obama has just ordered thousands of more troops into Iraq to help fight ISIS. Our dependence on OPEC oil helps fuel terrorism. We've made significant strides in reducing our OPEC oil dependence, but we have a long way to go.

Why? Because we needlessly continue to import over 3 million barrels a day.

That's about half as much as we imported when you and I started the Pickens Plan, but we have the energy resources to get off OPEC oil completely and let the Chinese, the Japanese, and the Indians defend the oil they need and use.

We have to keep up the fight to introduce alternative fuels in our transportation system. Natural gas is the one that's available, abundant, cleaner, and it's ours.

T. Boone Pickens and Neil Cavuto discuss the outlook for oil prices

Dec 16, 2014

T. Boone Pickens appeared with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Channel to discuss oil prices. Boone said that prices have fallen because “demand is half what we had predicted a year ago” yet “inventories are still building.”

He said we should still build the Keystone Pipeline because oil prices are likely to return to the $80 to $100 range in the next 12 to 18 months.

Pickens said the Saudis “are not going to cut output” to raise prices because of their huge cash reserves but “it is killing other OPEC members like Iran, Russia, Nigeria and Venezuela” and “they are making new enemies hourly.”

T. Boone Pickens on Success

Dec 5, 2014

The Wall Street Journal asked six nationally known figures to share their opinions on the secret of success. Here’s what T. Boone Pickens had to say:

“Being born in Holdenville, Oklahoma, I didn’t have a lot to compare to as far as success was concerned. There was pressure from my family to be successful, but there was no design to it other than to work hard. And everything will come together if you do. I had a paper route when I was 12, and I always had money. I liked that feeling. Everything’s been relatively simple for me throughout my life. I saw what happened when you did work—you got results. Now I’ve given away a billion dollars, and I can’t remember a time when I’ve wanted something I couldn’t have. The work ethic that was instilled in me I still have now. I’m 86, and I’m at the office every day before 8 a.m. I can’t imagine retiring. I’m busy. I work out with a trainer every morning. People ask him, ‘What’s your job?’ He says, ‘Keeping Mr. Pickens alive.’ ”
