Philip Anschutz owns 5% of (UP) railroad (the biggest railroad in the United State), which is own by Berkshire Hathaway and it is common knowledge that Mr. Warren Buffett supports President Obama, and Hillary, (Clinton New York Times, http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2015/12/16/warren-buffett-endorses-hillary-clinton-and-calls-for-higher-taxes-on-wealthy/?_r=0 ) and therefore Philip Anschutz supports them!

Now to give you insight in their motives is not only the revenue made by hauling crude oil to the refineries but most importantly the oil leases! Due to the drop in oil prices because of Saudi Arabia dumping cheap oil on the market, it is driving drilling compaines to close up shop and oil leases are dropping in prices. (Buy low and sell high!). Here is an example of how Philip Anschutz made his fortune on his first big oil strike! (Source Fortune Magazine By Brian O’Reilly Reporter Associate Ann Harrington
September 6, 1999) By the time he (Philip Anschutz), arrived at the site, it was ankle-deep in crude oil and the air was thick with natural gas. Anschutz took the obvious step of getting the well capped. Then he did something few people would have the wits to do in a crisis: He bought up oil leases on the cheap all around the region, before word got out that a big field had been discovered. He didn’t have the money to pay for the leases, so he bought them on 30 days’ credit, figuring banks would soon lend him whatever he needed.
Another example Mr. Anschutz served as a Director at [(Forest Oil Corporation.) merge with Sabine Oil & Gas Corp(OTCMKTS:SOGCQ) which sells for .0111 today and Forest Oil (otcmkts:FSTO) 0.22 buy low and sell high, and the assets these two companies own are unbelievable, you could buy the companies for nothing and sell the assets and make a fortune!] and how about $1.00 a ton for Coal, That is what american taxpayers are getting for each ton of coal on lease contracts Los Angeles Times!
Also: Railroads haul coal, now let’s look at coal leases at $1.00 dollar a ton: Here’s Cloud Peak CEO Colin Marshall in the company’s press release:
We carefully evaluated the estimated economics of this LBA [lease by application] in light of current market conditions and the uncertainty caused by the current political and regulatory environment towards coal and coal-powered generation and ultimately decided it was prudent not to bid at this time. … [W]e believe a significant portion of the BLM’s estimated mineable tons would not be recoverable by us if we were to be the winning bidder in the BLM’s competitive process. In combination with prevailing 8400 Btu market prices and projected costs of mining the remaining coal, we were unable to construct an economic bid for this tract at this time.
Coal shoulder: BLM sells controversial coal mining lease, but no one’s buying
http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-coal-lease-moratorium-20160115-story.htmlAngering coal supporters, the Obama administration announced a temporary ban on new coal leases on federal lands Friday as part of a broad environmental and economic review of the nation’s federal coal program.The new review announced Friday concerns the coal that private companies mine from federally owned land, which accounts for about 40% of all coal produced in the U.S. Most coal on public lands is in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana, and the nation’s coal leasing program has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years.Administration officials have previously questioned whether taxpayers were getting underpaid for leases granted to private mining concerns, which officials said have included winning bids that paid out $1 a ton for taxpayer-owned coal.

(FORTUNE Magazine)and As predicted, The (UP) came knocking. In 1996, after months of negotiations, which were broken off three times because of Anschutz’s aggressive stance, the Union Pacific paid $5.4 billion for Anschutz’s railroad, four times what he had bought it for eight years earlier. Anschutz, whose ownership share in the (SP) had dropped to 25% after several public and private stock offerings, netted more than $1 billion. He exchanged his (SP) stock for Union Pacific shares and is now the UP’s second-biggest shareholder, controlling more than 5% of its stock.] (UP is own by Berkshire Hathaway, which owns BNSF).

PUBLISHED DECEMBER 2, 2012 On January 23, Bloomberg News reported Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF), owned by his lucrative holding company Berkshire Hathaway, stands to benefit greatly from President Barack Obama’s recent cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline.Feb 3, 2012
As a result, companies (BNSF and UP) have made massive investments in oil-related rail infrastructure in the past three years, including a dozen oil-loading terminals that serve the Bakken alone. They include the Bakken Oil Express, a complex of four long loops of rail. This allows 100-car trains, more than a mile in length and usually entirely dedicated to oil, to coil around compactly as they pass a loading station.
“These are very substantial investments. We expect rail to be a player for a long time,” said Steve Magness, the terminal’s general manager.
BNSF Railway ships the bulk of oil out of the Williston Basin, which holds the Bakken formation. Over five years, the railroad saw oil shipments soar 7,000 percent, to 88.9 million barrels, the company reported in September. Union Pacific (UP) and Canadian National Railway are other major beneficiaries.
Now in conclusion, if Billy Kristol,is given the go ahead by Philip Anschutz and Warren Buffett, to start a third and fourth party, America will never recover without God’s help! We, Americans will have 8 more years of Obama and Hillary economics, and liberal justices and prices of oil, gas and coal will be controlled by a liberal President and Billionaires that do not care about the American people! Therefore Billy Kristol, Philip Anschutz and Warren Buffett and his friend are out of touch with the American People and do not care about the middle class, period only profit! God and Mr. Donald J. Trump are our only hope!
