I originally had mixed emotions when I heard that Energy Secretary Rick Perry was going to step down.

Once again, the media puts out allegations that aren’t true so they need to be addressed because they aren’t receiving information like they want and need.

Perry addressed recent reports that he was planning to resign in November in a Politico interview, claiming that the rumor that he was leaving has been on the dancefloor for months, but that’s all it is, a rumor.

Perry: “No. I’m here, I’m serving. They’ve been writing the story for at least nine months now. One of these days they will probably get it right, but it’s not today, it’s not tomorrow, it’s not next month.”

Someone over at Politico either tried to get the scoop or manufactured this story so they could easily retract it later. That’s the time we live in. The Politico reporter cited three unnamed sources who also denied his plans of leaving the Trump administration having anything to do with Ukraine.

When do you think the country should re-open and get back to work?

A spokesperson, Shaylyn Haynes, denied the report at the time.

Haynes: “While the beltway media has breathlessly reported on rumors of Secretary Perry’s departure for months, he is still the Secretary of Energy and a proud member of President Trump’s Cabinet. One day the media will be right. Today is not that day.”

On Saturday, Axios reported Pres. Trump told House Republicans his July 2019 call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at Perry’s request and Perry confirmed that he asked Trump to call Zelensky, but said it only concerned the country’s developing energy sector—not the Biden family.

Perry: “Absolutely, I asked the president multiple times, ‘Mr. President, we think it is in the United States’ and in Ukraine’s best interest that you and the president of Ukraine have conversations, that you discuss the options that are there’”

You can always predict these lying Democrats in the media and the lying Democrats in Congress will always try to paint any patriot, anyone serving the Trump Administration, and anyone who is a Republican in the worst possible light, including just making up outright lies in their futile effort to tarnish these Americans.

Perry at one point had suggested abolishing the Department of Energy, so it is poetic that he serves as Secretary of Energy but do remember that this former Texas governor has first name contacts with folks throughout the energy business around the globe. You go there Secretary Perry, and have a good day.

One more thing. I would never print anything that had three unnamed sources as my line of information. I just couldn’t.
