O’Rourke 2020 Is Here

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright. The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light, and somewhere men are laughing, and little children shout; But there is joy across the nation — Beto’s candidacy is out. Yes, friends and countryfolk, the rumors are, in fact, quite true. Months after losing out to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate Race, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) announced that he will be running for the Democratic nomination in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.

In the last twelve months, O’Rourke has risen to fame as the poster child for what many hope is the future of the Democratic Party. He’s been compared to former President Barack Obama, and was damn close to winning in Texas, a traditionally right-leaning state. If Uncle Jesse from “Full House” had a lovechild with Sen. Bernie Sanders, you’d get a nice, beautiful Beto O’Rourke. 

O’Rourke was tragically defeated in his home state of Texas, despite doing everything in his power to look appealing to die-hard conservatives, but, at his core, people knew that he was a progressive through and through. In less than two years, O’Rourke went from a general nobody, who also happened to be a congressional representative, to a national superstar. 

“The challenges that we face right now, the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate, have never been greater, and they will either consume us or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America. In other words, this moment of peril produces perhaps the greatest moment of promise for this country and for everyone inside of it.”

Rep. Beto O’Rourke

Interestingly enough, Beto’s words following his announcement contain language not typically found in the ideologies of the Democratic Party. When he talks about America’s crisis working as a fuel for the greatest moment in our history, it almost sounds like a speech that President Trump would give at a stump rally. The 46-year-old politician has been lauded, as well as ridiculed, for being Congress’ resident bad boy.

He is, by no means, a conventional candidate for president, mainly because people just cannot seem to get a read on him. He proved conservative enough to convince a significant portion of Texans to rally behind him in his Senate race, despite losing. On the other hand, O’Rourke has regularly called for the impeachment of President Trump, publicly advocated for Medicare, and made “calls to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.”

Given his pure, unadulterated charisma demonstrated in the Texas Senate race, many Democratic fundraisers are interested in giving Beto O’Rourke the resources necessary to be a serious candidate for the 2020 Presidential Election. O’Rourke raised $38 million in the third quarter of his race alone, and donors and political operatives around the country want to know if he will, in fact, be running for a spot on the Democratic ticket. 

Naturally, President Donald Trump couldn’t bare to see someone have their name on the media’s marquee, so immediately after O’Rourke announced his candidacy, Trump made a jokingly insulting comment about the fact that O’Rourke speaks with hand gestures during speeches. Trump said that O’Rourke has “a lot of hand movement,” and asked if “he is crazy, or is that just the way he acts.” 

Regardless of what Trump thinks of Beto O’Rourke’s hands, what it all really boils down to is whether or not he has what it takes to secure the Democratic nomination and defeat the Republican candidate, which may very well end up being President Trump. It is the opinion of this court that O’Rourke represents a political energy that has been missing since the days of Jimmy Carter and John F. Kennedy.

Where Will Oil Go After This Week’s Price Hit?

oil and gas news

Even though oil had been taking a beating over the last 2 trading sessions, its price rose to $69 per barrel on Friday. However, oil prices are experiencing the worst week of 2019 mainly due to potential economic slowdown and ever-growing oil inventories. US oil inventories have not been this high since July of 2017. And to top it all off, the trade war between the US and China is growing wearier every day further affecting oil prices.

Naeem Aslam, the chief market analyst at TF Global Markets, stated, “Clearly, bargain hunters are back in town.” He later added, “However, it is still set to record the worst week of the year and this is due to the increase in trade war tensions between the U.S. and China.”

Global Scale

The global benchmark for oil, Brent Crude, has experienced a decrease of 5 percent this week. However, Brent Crude this morning climbed $0.98 to value each barrel at $68.74. Due to US sanctions and voluntary supply cuts, a floor under prices held. Market analysts are expecting the oil market to recover off of the price floor.

“It is reasonable to doubt whether Saudi Arabia will be willing to step up its output given the latest decline in prices, […] we therefore expect to see higher oil prices again in the near future,” Explain analysts at Commerzbank.

In order to make the market tighter, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has been cutting oil supplies since the beginning of the year. 

Brent Crude’s prices reflect that the supply and demand of oil is tightly knit. According to UBS, Brent Crude should get back to $75 this month as supply gets tighter and tighter.

“Compliance of OPEC and its allies to the production cut deal remains high, while production from Iran and Venezuela is likely to again trend lower this month,” explains analyst Giovanni Staunovo,

Threats to people’s lives are constantly developing across the globe. In order to mitigate the growing fears of international conflict, security and defense companies have continuously innovated.

Living in constant fear is never sought and these companies understand that. Security innovations allow people in the US to walk around freely at the park or go watch their favorite artist at a concert with little to no fear.

New Potential for the Security Industry & Security Stocks

While developing security protocols and machines to fight threats overseas is important, home-grown threats have become a point of concern for US citizens. Mass shootings have increased, and the Muslim radicalization of American citizens is prevalent as ever. In order to make people safer, Liberty Defense has come to fill that hole.

Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) is developing HEXWAVE to revolutionize how facilities get secured. HEXWAVE can be used to detect any kind of weapon through 3D imaging. The technology utilizes both quickness and indiscretion to produce warnings of potential threats while respecting people’s privacy. 

While the product is still undergoing testing, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) has been taking steps to put HEXWAVE in front of the public. The company recently announced signing a memorandum of understanding with Utah’s Attorney General to beta test HEXWAVE there. The technology can be tested at sporting events, amusement parks, schools, and government buildings.

Bill Riker, Liberty Defense’s CEO, stated, “HEXWAVE can be applied in a variety of settings to provide a means to identify possible threats before they advance into attacks. We are excited that the Attorney General of Utah recognizes the potential value of this technology and the opportunity it provides for enhanced security in the state.”

What’s Should Be Expected Of Defense Companies?

When people think about the US armed forces they marvel at the gear used from tanks to jet planes. Most people do not take the moment to think where the US actually gets its arms from.

Report: This New Technology Could Transform A Multi-Billion-Dollar Industry!

One company responsible for US defenses is Lockheed Martin (LMT). Lockheed Martin develops and manufactures missile systems, aircraft, and training systems. They even provide cybersecurity services to governmental figures.

While Lockheed Martin controls a large portion of the defense industry, they show no signs of slowing down. Recently, the company made progress on its new production facility in Alabama. It is expected to be a 225,000 square foot facility to fulfill US Air Force needs.

The construction is expected to be finished in 2021. Executive Vice President, Frank St. John, explained, “All our employees come to work with an unwavering commitment to help our customers succeed in their mission to create a more secure and prosperous world.”
