If the first questions were related to the U.S. as a possible oil-exporting country then, given the past when they granted licenses to export, some interesting questions arises whether the U.S. will commence sending oil to Europe ?
Under what conditions will these licenses be granted? How will Europe's current distributors cope with this situation?
A dream of the former president was to certainly use the oil resources of the country as leverage to wealth
In early November, Guatemala withdrew from the Petrocaribe oil alliance launched by Chavez, representatives of Brazil and Colombia have held meetings with their Venezuelan counterparts to collect overdue payment
Although Venezuela sits atop the world's largest reserves, production has steadily declined in recent years. Global prices for crude are also lower as hydraulic fracturing technology boosts supplies in the U.S.
President Nicolas Maduro will be able to govern without consulting Congress for 12 months.
The president says the aim of the new powers is to tackle the economic crisis.
Maduro is attacking the country's producers and businesses to boost his United Socialist Party of Venezuela for local elections.
The deeply divided oil-producing country is going to the polls on 8 December .
The golden age of oil is fast becoming a thing of the past, as crude oil inventory begin to decline. All over the world countries are searching for alternitive fuels, and developing new technologies to offset the ever increasing cost of oil. Many oil producing nations have begun to limit their exports of crude oil.
The Science Used To Challenge Manmade Global Warming and Is Behind Many Of The Letters Used To Refute The Claims of Various Government Agencies That Promote The Global Warming Hoax
After attempting to smear and belittle the signers of the numerous letters and petitions sent to the UN, NASA, and the US Congress, you will hear the Warmers make the spurious claim that there is no science behind the charges in those letters and petitions. More prevarication and fabrication from the Warmers!
Thanks to extensive research and noticeable changes in weather and storm prevalence, it’s getting harder to turn a blind eye to the reality of climate change. Since the Industrial Age spurred the increasing usage of fossil fuels for energy production, the weather has been warming slowly.
Over 130 German Scientists Publically Reject Global Warming Claims: Write Letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel Urging Her to 'Strongly Reconsider' Her Position on Global Warming "A growing body of evidence shows humans have had no measurable effect on climate change through C02 emmissions." (Public letter from over 130 German scientists to German Chancellor Angela Merkel)
What if Chavez’s Absence in Venezuela Degenerates to a Political Crisis?
Venezuela, Home to the world’s largest known oil reserves, is now in a political limbo as the fate of its fiery President continues to hang in the balance. President Hugo Chavez has remained in a critical condition since early-December 2012 when he was hospitalized in Cuba to undergo surgery on cancer-related complications.
Jim River, AK closed in on the all time record coldest temperature of -80°F set in 1971, which is not only the Alaska all-time record, but the record for the entire United States.
"Global warming" must be true. The Warmers are right: the whole planet is heating up to a boiling point, and, of course, we evil Americans who burn more natural earth fuels than any ten other nations are the reason for it.
"On Friday, Moscow was on a verge of traffic collapse as more than 10 inches of snow fell on the city, which is more than half of January's average." Record snows and low temps. Yes, it's that damned "global warming" — at it again.
The U.S. government is capable of recognizing the widespread wealth-generating benefits of free trade and allowing exports in certain areas of the economy (just take a closer look at the government’s involvement in the agricultural sector for plenty of examples), but for some strange reason, the current energy-company clamor of applications for obtaining permits to further export liquified natural gas is persistently encountering some fierce resistance.
Now that their man is back in office, the Warmers are firing blasts across the board to convince the nation of their phony claims. See here how devious they truly are.
This claim from a brand new report eminating from the National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee (NCADAC), which included more than 240 authors, and was founded to promote "global warming" beliefs: “Evidence for climate change abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans.
Hey, folks, perhaps the Freezers from the 1960s and '70s were right after all. Ha! Ha! Ha!
Notice that the American weather media are emphasizing the fact that the southern US is having — up to this point — a warm winter. No mention that other parts of the world are busting through old freezing records elephants through thin ice.
One can only wonder why the Warmers' "greenhouse effect" is not working all over the world, globally, that is. Perhaps it's because it does not exist.
Disciplined Spending Policies Have Helped Texas
The Texas economy has topped budget projections over the past 15 months, as booming energy output fueled job growth and an 11 percent fiscal first-quarter gain in sales-tax receipts, the biggest source of general-fund revenue. Even after paying off $7 billion in health and school bills, Comptroller Susan Combs said today that the state will be flush heading into 2014. …

16 Projects to Export LNG to Europe and Asia
Right now, certain nations are beholden to Russia and Iran for their energy needs, and Lugar thinks the United States could undermine these countries’ influence by simply allowing for a little good ol’-fashioned, American-style market competition on the global scene.

"It's been nice and warm in the U.S. this past week, but get ready: Winter is coming (it has already started in the plains) and lest we forget, there were 2 snow events in the I-95 corridor from Philadelphia northeastward in November, a rare event.
But did the AGW people let you know what is going on in Europe, or the far east, or Alaska where November was the coldest on record, BEATING LAST YEAR'S RECORD? It was 10 years ago that AGW people were saying that snow and cold would be increasingly rare in Europe, and this is now the 4th severe winter in a row with winter weather causing havoc.
Solyndra and Abound make up about $600 million Obama has thrown into two worthless companies with worthless products. He plans on spending billions more in a second term.
The government has no business "investing" in private businesses, because the temptation to do it for political ends, as here and with Solyndra, is too much. Indeed, the government had no business putting money in banks or auto companies, because, in both cases, the monies went to political favorites of both Bush and Obama.

You Would Go to Prison for What Politicians Do...
What Do the 2008 Debates Tell Us We Can Expect from Obama in the Upcoming Debates? More Lies and More Distortions!
With the second 2012 presidential debate, a Townhall Forum, coming up on Tuesday, October 16, we decided that we would go back over our tape of the 2008 Townhall debate and the other two 2008 debates, to see what Obama said then and what perhaps we could expect this time around.
The amount of lies Obama told in the 2008 debates is staggering. Let’s go over a few of them.
"I am very happy with Candy Crowley as the moderator—and with the debate format." (Leftist Alan Combs, about three hours before the second debate; Combs is author of the book, "How Liberals Saved America"; his statement just about says it all)
If you go behind enemy lines enough times, you’re going to get nailed. Mitt Romney got smacked several times in the second of the 2012 presidential debates, because he was behind enemy lines. Get caught there and you’re not apt to get any breaks.
I believe Mitt Romney is a good person. He is a great parent. He is an excellent husband. He is a fine businessman. He is a super debater. But he is a horrible politician. You don’t voluntarily go onto your opponent’s home field—behind enemy lines, as it were, onto a format your opponent chooses with a moderator that strongly agrees with him politically—without demanding that you get to fight a battle on your home field with your chosen moderator. Or at least you demand a second moderator who agrees more with your views. But that’s exactly what Mittens did.
"Sandra Fluke called Obama after the debate last night to see if he was alright." (Greg Gutfeld on "the Five," describing how badly he believed Obama was beaten in the debate; 10-4, 12)
In the first presidential debate of 2012, Barack Obama found himself in a situation that he puts out every effort to dodge: where someone is able to confront him regarding his claims and actions, where he does not have specific questions but only general ones. This was a rare situation for him, and his facial expressions and overall demeanor showed he would rather have had someone give him forty whacks with a steel rod than have been there.
Obama’s narcissistic nature—which is a psychosis—that has been on full display for the last four years showed itself even moreso last night. One narcissistic trait is fear of situations where the narcissist might be challenged. Narcissists lust to have their views and themselves affirmed—they crave attention and are extremely self-centered. They loathe the idea of having to prove themselves; they are not stupid people. They are naturally manipulative and deceitful—hence the constant stream of lies and distortions that Obama has drowned the nation with the last four years.
Quotation Showing Barack Obama's Static View of the Economy, Which is Marxist, and His Belief in Wealth Redistribution, Which is Also Marxist "As we try to resuscitate this notion that we are all in this thing together, leave nobody behind, we do have to be innovative and thinking what are the delivery systems that are actually effective and meet people where they live. And my suggestion, I guess-would be that the trick-and this is one of the few areas where I think there are technical issues that have to be dwelt with as opposed to just political issues. I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution, because I actually believe in redistribution at a certain level to make sure that everybody has a shot." (Loyala University, October 19, 1998)
"And yes, my plan will continue to reduce the carbon pollution that is heating our planet-because climate change is not a hoax. More droughts and floods and wildfires are not a joke. They're a threat to our children's future. And in this election, you can do something about it." (From the Liar in Chief Himself, in his acceptance speech at the Dum Convention, 8-6,12, pumping "Global Warming" in a blatant attempt to obtain funds threatened to be withheld by the Carbon Cult if he did not throw the Warmers a little filthy language about CO2).
It's no great wonder that so many people are ready to defund the playground for adults with the minds of children who goggle at the stars-seeing little green men in flying saucers tittuping hither and yon around the universe.
At speeches Obama has given every day over the last 3 1/2 years, to cheering crowds he almost always promises to "make millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share" by raising their taxes. The implication is that these people are not paying what some mythical rule book says they ought to pay, when in fact, the fairness is decided by Obama himself.
The Central Political Warfare Tactics of the Demented Left: Accusations of Racial Slander, Sexual Misconduct, and Stupidity
Part of the demented left's plan to win the upcoming elections is to twist everything GOP candidates say into hidden racist slanders-that only far-left wing-nuts can interpret. It's not a new tactic; they've been at it for years. Marxists invented the method in the 1920s.
In the psychology of political warfare, Leftists are not stupid. They know most Republican politicians will cower at the slightest snarl. That's why I call them Republicowards.
It was first subsidized in the late ‘70s as a fossil fuel alternative, but it’s turned out to be inefficient source of fuel. Not only that, ethanol from corn actually increases the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a higher rate than gasoline. Yet, the U.S. pays $10 to $30 billion dollars each years in farm subsidies to raise even more of it, with no clear benefit to consumers.
Two Worthwhile Quotations
"Democrats haven't the slightest concern about who will formulate new medical remedies because they are enraged at profit making and suspicious of scientific advancement. Apart from cures that will never be invented, liberal elites will be mostly untouched by the rotten medical care to which they are consigning the rest of us. Note how Democrats' friends, such as government unions, immediately received waivers from Obamacare. Rich or connected liberals, such as George Soros, Warren Buffett, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama, will always have access to the best doctors, just as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez do....
The rest of us are forced to live in a lawless universe of no new pharmaceuticals, foreign doctors, gay marriage, girl soldiers, a health care system run by the post office, and bankrupt Social Security and Medicare systems, because liberals can't enjoy their wealth unless other people are living in squalor." (Ann Coulter)
The Truth about the Employment Rates and the Economy
The Obamaites and the media (really one in the same) are celebrating the government's skewered employment numbers from last week. They're also hiding an awful lot of negative news. E.g., note below the "U-6 discouraged workers unemployment rate" is back up to 15%. That's the worst it's been since the 1930s.
Mr. Root is entirely correct. He has analyzed the Obama Administration's agenda quite perfectly. Obama is not the first to attempt to implement the Cloward-Piven strategy to socialize America.
Their work having come out in 1966, LBJ was thoroughly familiar with it-and, along with Michael Harrington's (who worked on JFK first), endorsed their concepts. Thus the US raced into the speed-lane of social engineering, wealth redistribution, and big government control: which is a form of fascism combined with its sister, socialism.
The Cloward-Piven plan is gradually to add social program after social program to the Federal Government (which would force borrowing by deficit spending). After a few decades, finally the monumental debt overload (such as we have today) and the demand for more and more for those receiving what dribbles down through the government-what it has confiscated from those who're paying it-would force upon an unwilling American people a socialized society.
You notice that-though the Democrats might feign that they detest deficit spending-they always call for more. Almost every day in the NY Times, Paul Krugman claims that the reason the economy has not recovered from the "Bush Recession" is that the government has not spent enough money to stimulate it.
Add this strategy to Alinsky's ideas, and freedom is hanging onto the edge of the cliff by its pinkies-four more years of the Creature and you can wave goodbye to that concept as it cascades into the abyss of statism.
Hope and Change is here-in the satanic framework of Saul Alinsky and Richard Cloward and Francis Piven. (The first two are dead-Piven is still going strong encouraging the Tattooed Know-It-All Unable-to-Reason Cynical Bong Baby Generation to continue protesting in the streets against freedom and for more statism.)
Good piece! Must read!
Intro to Thomas Sowell's Article
In the late 1980s political author and Insider, admitted Marxist, one-world government promoter, trustee and founder of the Trilateral Commission, and Council on Foreign Relations member Zbigniew Brzezinski stated in his powerful book, "The Grand Failure," that, "In fact Communism, Fascism, and Nazism are genetically related, historically linked, and politically quite similar."
Though Benito Mussolini did not invent Fascism, he did explain it to the world: "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism, because it is the merger of state and corporate power."
Bill Clinton was the first president to state openly a fascist policy: "Government and business must create a partnership, one that will benefit all."
After having his minions scour the nation's infrastructure for problems, all the Obamaites could find were a couple of bridges with cracks in them, and they had already been fixed. That didn't stop your El Presedente from making up an audacious lie about them, though. Truth never gets in this man's way. And who do you think he blamed?
Glenn Kessler of the normally leftist Washington Post granted Obama four Pinocchios for "a huge whopper," the worst possible designation-for his lies about infrastructure projects. Here is the tale as Obama told it to the Building and Construction Trades Department conference:
Obama began a couple of months ago claiming 2 million jobs have been created during his 3 1/2 years in office. When he saw the Marxist media let him get by with that lie, he jumped the number to 2.4 million, and then last week in one speech to "over 4 million." He finished the weekend off by claiming 4.3 million. Wow. What a brazen liar. Look for all the lefist minions to repeat that latest figure in the coming weeks, because they jump on the lying train as fast as the Administration sets it in motion.
Dear Concerned Citizens:
It's my view that federal spending at 18% of GNP is too high. For those of you who recall, that's what we were spending during the Cold War. When the Marxist Wall came crashing down in 1989, spending was supposed to come down. Under George "Papa" Bush it instead rose.
Now, we have Obama, the all-time big-post-WWII spender, who, if you listen to what he's saying, if elected to another term will spend even more than he did in his first term. Most of the monies he's splashed out over the world have gone to local and state governments, making them bigger and more powerful, and must we not forget the $2 billion to Brazil to help that nation with their offshore drilling. That certainly helped the US economy.
You should notice, too, that all the spending under Obama and Carter did not help the economy. Don't forget that Obama & Co. (especially Paul Krugman) claim that Obama's call for "stimulus spending" of what has amounted to over a trillion dollars in a little over three years was not enough; they've even hinted at spending more to "stimulate the economy." That's what leftists like the Bushes and Obama do: they spend and build the government. Clinton started out increasing spending, but got shut down after Hillarycare came crashing down and his own Congress wouldn't work with him to give him the funds he asked for.
Look how much of the "stimulus funds" went to building the government, to make it more powerful. Does adding 25,000 new IRS agents and oodles of new bureaucraces and Czars help the economy? Bah!!
The Real Cost of Obamacare, and a List of the New Taxes it Requires
Three years after the Demonrats foisted this monster onto the American people, the Geeknerbs at the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) recently reevaluated the net cost of Obamacare: instead of the $940 billion cost over ten years that Obama claimed it would cost, the CBO now says that it will cost $2.6 trillion.
If the US Supreme Court allows this horrid bill to stand as law, Obamacare will be the largest tax increase in American history and it will be the greatest intrusion into the American people's lives in history. On top of that, the emergency taxes enacted after 9-11 will increase, and in some cases over 100%.
Exposing the White House Lies and Deception Regarding the Offshore Drilling Moratorium in the Gulf
Michelle Malkin has written an excellent article showing how deviously crooked the current Administration is. It also shows how defiant of authority the Obamaites are and how they skulk like cockroaches at night to carry out their lusts.
"I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That 'all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people' [this comprises the 10th Amendment of the Bill of Rights]. To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers given to Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible to any definition." (Thomas Jefferson, 1743-1826; US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence; 3rd US President of the US; initiated the addition of the Bill of Rights, written by George Mason)
Intro to the Paul Driessen Article
Paul Driessen is an expert on energy sources, and always presents well-reasoned writings to back up his positions - not wild claims of forthcoming doom to humanity and the earth that never materialize. He is "senior policy adviser for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), which is sponsoring the All Pain No Gain petition against global-warming hype."
He does not work for Big Oil. He does not work for Big Gas. He does not work for Big Coal.
The eco-maniacs hate him - obviously.
His points in this piece are widely unknown yet salient, and should be made known to all of society.
It's my view that those who oppose his reasoning do so either because they are benefitting financially from Big Wind, Solar, Global Warming research funds or they are so brainwashed they can't possibly go against the propaganda they have swallowed.
Notice too that these are true subsidies Driessen is speaking of for Big Wind, which are direct costs to the taxpayers of billions annually.
Katie Pavlich has written an excellent book that presents a preponderance of circumstantial evidence that Obama and Holder not only knew exactly what was going on with "Fast & Furious"; they ordered it for the purpose of justifying their itch to regulate gun dealers even moreso than the Feds already do.
Obama's history of memberships in anti-gun groups and statements that he would outlaw private ownership of guns are well known. Pavlich brings more of that to light.
Similar to the Global Warming Hoax and the Evolution Hoax, leftists who discover these are indeed hoaxes don't care one snip, because they follow the central edict of the father of all their ideologies: Karl Marx. For from materialistic atheism to a centralized government that has total control over the people all leftists succumb to Marx's creed: the end justifies any means it takes to get to that end. Warmers want to stop-by any means whatever-the use of any natural earth substances for energy: oil, gas, coal. Atheistic evolutionists want to secularize the world, and most especially the US. Neither cares what the route is that takes them to their goals.
In the case of gun ownership, anti-gun hacks such as Obama and Holder are exactly the same: they don't care how they get to the end of disallowing private gun ownership; they just want to get there.
In that light, it thus makes sense that they would smuggle weapons to Mexican Drug Cartels through US gun dealers believing their actions would remain secret. They then could expose that most weapons in Mexico came from US dealers and squall the same line the ATF and Justice Department have been promoting for years: that US gun dealers supply Mexican Drug Cartels with the majority of their weapons. Next, more regulation on or even elimination of US gun dealers. A right-brained, dream of a couple of goony utopian pariahs, indeed.
Now, is it not just like a character who, while in college, "sought out radical feminists and Marxist professors as friends" to think like that? Well, that's the kind of character we have running the nation. How the hell do we expect him to think? Like the local choir boy?
Knowing these facts makes Pavlich's circumstantial evidence much, much stronger.
Pavlich did not break the "Fast & Furious" scandal; Sharyl Attkinson did. And she caught hell for it from the Obamaites and other leftists in the media. The following article exposes that.
Freedom First & Forever: Berry Jingles
As I have noted many times, the current Warmers were once Freezers. Yet, for both cooling and warming, they predict the same doom for humans and the planet. They must expect us suckers to believe that the weather ought not wax and wane. Just as leftists want the government to restrict the ups and downs of a capitalist economy, I suppose they want it to try to restrict weather extremes-even though it's not possible.
"Billions of us will die from global warming and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be [living] in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable."
(Famous Warmer, James Lovelock, author of "The Gaia Hypothesis," who is now ostensibly writing a book retracting his "alarmist statements," because of the cooler weather around the world since 1998; the moron still believes in warming, but says it's just not happening as fast! What else?)
Tired of seeing NASA and GISS propound what is at best an unproven theory and at worst (in my view) at huge hoax, fifty astronauts at NASA (including four who traveled to the moon), engineers, and scientists have sent a letter to the space agency requesting that it stop including "unproven remarks" about global warming in its news releases and on its websites.
None of these people is backed by Big Oil or the Energy Industry. When leftist kooks throw that one at you (that anyone who does not believe in Global Warming is backed by Big Oil or the Energy Industry), be sure to point out to them the many commercials made by the Energy Industry and Big Oil stating their belief in Global Warming and informing what they're doing to stop it.
I suppose the eco-maniac Warmers will claim that Lovelock has been bought out by Big Oil when they read that he has said things like this: "The problem is we don't know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books-mine included-because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn't happened."
According to Live Science, a NASA spokesman confirmed that the agency received the letter.
Select excerpts from the letter:
a.. "We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated."
b.. "The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA's history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements."
c.. "We request that NASA refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases and websites on this subject."
d.. With hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists publicly declaring their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, coming particularly from the GISS leadership, it is clear that the science is NOT settled.

The Truth about Climate Science from the IPCC
Though the main culprits in Climategate have been fired and the IPCC has lost all credibility, the group carried out an investigation of itself and, you could not possibly imagine this out of a bunch of creepy Leftists, they found themselves innocent of any purposeful fraud - though the leaked emails and the IPCC's actions over the years clearly the opposite.
Sure, they shut down weather stations in the coldest areas and left the ones open that were in the warmest areas. Still, they could not get the warming figures that their models predicted. What a lot of balderdash! It's not worth mentioning these creepy frauds, but many people out there have no idea of these facts; others, goofy eco-maniac Leftists remain steadfast Warmers, though they're really Climate Changers. Most at the top of the leftist heap don't care one way or the other about the climate; they seek to destroy America as it stands today-global warming and the rules and regulations that go with it are merely tools.
The most leftist of the three old Networks (which includes ABC & CBS), NBC News, apologizes for showing a very prejudicial edition of the Zimmerman/911 tapes. The original edition NBC showed was immediately picked up by the other Networks, cable channels, and FOX.
NBC News is the network that invented the new racial term-picked up quickly by the NY Times, Washington Post, the other Networks, and the cable channels-and obviously meant to stir racial fires: "White Puerto Rican." What else?
The edited tape made it look as though Zimmerman was following Martin only because he was Black. The original unedited tape shows that is not the case.
We here have no opinion at all in this case.
Evergreen Solar was a hot item a few years ago, when investors realized the Umboogo Ad. was going to blindly dump billions of dollars into the solar industry.
We here urged people not to invest in these type of companies, because solar is not yet a viable industry-and it will not be until someone invents a way to capture the sun's energy and transform it into usable power other than using rare trace minerals to do it. Get that through the nutty, dreaming Left's brain and you should receive the Dinky Button of the year. I've tried. It's impossible.
Leftists are so sold on the myth that natural earth fuels are evil (or mining them is robbing their god, the earth) that they simply cannot understand the fact that solar power in mass usage is decenniums away. Or either, they will not face that fact. Certainly, to think as they do they must live their lives in total denial, so their brains might simply be able to block out facts they don't like. The latter I believe with all my heart is the case.
Intro to Crooked Politician Finally Brought Down
The late John Murtha (Dum. PN) and Norman Dicks (Dum. WA) have stolen more money than even LBJ, who went to Washington in the early 1930s driving a 1922 jalopy and left in 1968 with 44-million in his bank account and owned banks and TV and radio stations across Texas. He went home to a 2200 acre ranch (called the Texas White House) that had its own airport. The only job Johnson ever had was that of a school teacher, at which he made $46.00 per month back in the 1920s. He made less than $800.000 during his time in the Federal Government.
Both Murtha and Dicks' family and friends have made hundreds of millions by their using their power to get them under- and over-the-table state and federal grants and contracts.
Nowadays, these political thieves put their assets in their family's names-and tell their constituents they're worth little to nothing. After getting caught, they simply resign, then skate out the door freely. Many of them won't leave after getting caught. Charles Rangle (Dum. NY) is an excellent example of that. The Dumborat led House Ethics Committee found him guilty of eleven violations and reprimanded him (a real joke). He stepped down from his post as boss dog of the Ways and Means Committee, where he presided as a king. He has refused to resign from office saying, let the people vote me out. You couldn't nuke this man out of his Harlem congressional seat.
Similarly, the late Dan Rostenkowski (Dum. ILL)-a known crook-having come right out of the sidewinderly crooked Cook County Machine in Chicago. (Has there ever been a decent politician from Illinois? I wouldn't dare ask, honest, but only decent?)
Intro to "Rush Limbaugh Isn't the Only Media Misogynist," by Kirsten Powers
I myself don't even relate to the words that some people claim to get so upset about. I was raised by and live by the adage that "stick and stones might break your bones but words can never hurt you," and I encourage others to do the same. Pay no attention to meaningless taunts and jabs.
That is not absolute, however. Impugning someone's integrity is certainly improper (and it is not meaningless), unless the proof is there. E.g., we commonly call Obongo a liar because we have the evidence to prove it-and he has not slowed down in the least. I doubt that he will because one part of the media will not say certain things about him-and the other part fears to say certain things about him. He knows that, and thus runs freely over the nation (read: world) lying and deceiving anyone who will listen to him. The man is certainly a much better liar than the last three presidents. He can spit out a big one and not flinch. It's really quite disconcerting he lies so easily and calmly. It's as if he believes what he's saying himself.
As all of you know, I don't get mushy when someone dies that I don't know-personally. And I don't make saints out of people simply because they've left this flesh. As far as I'm concerned, the truth ought to be the truth no matter where a person is, and that's one of the two things I want more than anything: truth. The other is freedom. For without those we may as well rename America Babylon.
Andrew Brietbart died this week at age 43. He was an expert at exposing what leftists are really doing rather than what they say they are doing. He was at times a blowhard. He was definitely a narcissist, perhaps not to the point that Obogo is, but nevertheless... He had no faith; his god was the fight, the attention, the roar of it all. He often took up for the enemies of freedom whom he liked. He hung around with neo-cons because he was one, partied with leftists, and was a Middle-East War Monger. He opposed Ron Paul, as all the neo-cons do.
The RINOs and neo-cons (pretty much one in the same) in the Republicoward Party are as big a problem as the whole lot of the Devilrats, because most of the voting public have no idea how sneakily leftist they are. They need to go and this election year provides us with an excellent opportunity to get rid of them.
To save the nation from an economic catastrophe, we must get rid of the people who backed TARP and the bailouts of AIG and the broke car companies who, though Obogo is going about this week bragging about how well GM is doing, still owe $23b on their "loans." (give me $80b and see if I can keep a broken business afloat)
Fannie and Freddie need another $4.8b immediately from the taxpayers to survive after dumping $180b into that black hole, and Obogo has just announced that he is providing two broke solar-panel companies with another $2b. Meanwhile, the Party of conservative fiscal policies allows a RINO to get them in an argument over contraception. As I've said, they don't call them the Stupid Party for no reason.
Note that 100,000 Dumborats showed up Michigan to vote for Santorum, a state in which anyone registered can vote in the primaries. That ought to wake up any brainwashed lunch-box carrying ape as to who the phony is in this primary, eh?
Rick Santorum-Perhaps the Most Dangerous Candidate the Republicowards
Have Ever Put Forward Rick Santorum is a Big Government statist who believes the president has powers not given him in the Constitution. He has stated that a too strict reading of the Constitution gives citizens too much freedom. "A radical freedom," he called it. The fact is, we need a whole lot more freedom in this country-not less. In the last eleven years we've lost more freedoms than we have in the rest of my lifetime, and I well remember the last years of Ike. That's over 50-years ago, through the '60s and on through to 2012.
This is one of the few candidates I've seen the Republicowards put up that may be worse than John McCain-if that is possible.
The Beast in Washington Has Come Full Circle: Back to Tyranny
Intro to Judge Napolitano's Article: The Beast Has Come Full Circle
My how the American people have changed since their Revolution from the tyrannical English beast that ruled them in the 18th Century: they have given the Central Government their ancestors created with strict limited powers the power to do anything it wishes. Yes, at this point there is no limit to what the US Federal Government can do. And many of the people are screaming in the streets for it to do more!
Masses of American people want the Beast in Washington to steal (or print) more money to fight wars on every land mass on earth, to give them "free education," "free healthcare," "free food," "free rent" and/or a "free home"; they want the Beast to pay for disasters that may happen to them, to regulate, restrict, and tax others because they are envious of those who have managed to succeed in society, and then to give them money every month to do with as they please, and the list never ends.
What type of chains will it take to make a passive, bent over, enslaved nation wake up and yell, Stop the tyranny!! Stop the stealing!! Stop the wars!! Dismantle the Beast!!!
Whatever it will take, we are far away from that point at this time.
Excellent article! Enjoy.
Remember the vast social panic they instilled with the global warming hoax? Some of these "salespeople" still believe in it. What matters the Siberian -50C originated winds blowing Westward and freezing Europe as South as Rome? February belong to the frost daemons. According to the Solar system meteorology, this gets worse every decade or so, for ages. But this old-news is not the theme of today's rant. Take fracking. The eco-alarmists warned people that our taps will blow out bubbling methane gas and our kitchens will be washed in flames, beginning with the sink! Turns out to be yet another flatulence of the lets-starve-their-energy-to-control-them groups of the freaking social-engineering left.
Intro to Sowell's Article: "A Brass Age"
"Hey, Beavis, pull your pants down so your butt crack will show."
"Oh yeah, Butthead-cool-the butt crack is awesome!! Hee, hee, hee, hee." (Butthead & Beavis, two characters that perfectly epitomize the Tattooed, Non-Reasoning, Cynical Bong Baby Generation that make up Sowell's "Brass Age")
Thomas Sowell is about reasoning, about thinking for oneself, about overlooking the common view, and deciding through research and reason what the truth truly is. This is something that Bong Babies have not learned to do, or either are not able to do. This I have not yet decided, but am at this point sadly leaning toward the latter conclusion.
Intro to "The Newt I Know" by Joe Scarborough
Scarborough was a member of the famous freshman Republican class of 1994 that won control of the House of Representatives for the first time in forty-five-years and only the second time in sixty-years.
Because of his diligent efforts in showing what the Clintons were doing (and planning to do) to the nation, this is the class that made Rush Limbaugh an honorary member over Newt Gingrich's protest that he was "too right-wing, too divisive."
"Off the coast of Rio de Janeiro — below a mile of water and two miles of shifting rock, sand and salt — is an ultradeep sea of oil that could turn Brazil into the world’s fourth-largest oil producer, behind Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United States.
"It may be a good thing if we plan on being in Iraq for a long time, maybe another 50-years." (Newt Gingrich when Baby Boy Bush's slaughter in Iraq began)
When Newt Gingrich left New Hampshire week before last, his campaign was broke. All of a sudden in SC Gingrich had a flood of money to knock off Mitt Romney with ads.
If you laughed hard at the global warming suspect science, if you worried enough at the carbon emissions trading, or the cap-n-trade scam to tax you to death, if you breathed of ease when witnessing the dismissal of the Kyoto pyramid protocol, now it's time to shiver once again. "Researchers at Bio Architecture Lab, Inc., (BAL) and the University of Washington in Seattle have now taken the first step to exploit the natural advantages of seaweed. They have built a microbe capable of digesting it and converting it into ethanol or other fuels or chemicals."
Remember that close-to-final scene in "The Day After Tomorrow" when Sam and his friends, along with some older staff, dug deep inside the New York Public Library, pander in a books burning orgy so they may prevent an instant freezing of their bodies? That movie is a milestone! If you haven't watched it yet, then do this because global warming, turned to climate change, may as well head further South into a novel Ice Age. Yes, the other film (an excellent cartoon) producers will release version 4 any time soon, but let's get serious, down to business!
"The root causes of the transitions from Ice Age to interglacial and back again are the subtle variations in the Earth's orbit known as the Milankovitch cycles, after the Serbian scientist Milutin Milankovic who described the effect nearly 100 years ago.
One of two types of people hate "free market capitalism": people who have become powerful due to being elected or appointed to a government office and cannot do anything in the real world to subsist, or they have a monopoly business and want to keep that monopoly.
Or, they are people who must receive payments from the government to subsist (the money used to make such payments have been stolen from productive citizens by the State). Or through some other manner they suck off the government, such as lawyers who survive by suing businesses and sucking off the government by representing people who want money from the State; these type of lawyers produce zero and are
About a century ago, Lenin made a great case with the advances of electrifying early Soviet Russia. In fact, history proved that the Soviet spell brought millions and millions of Russians to death, layered famine over Ukraine, eventually leading to cannibalism and other horrendous disasters, and eventually destroyed a healthy economy by brutally killing the "production forces" -- as Marxists call working people and their tools.
Economic disasters are not emerging because of market forces. On the contrary, they are planned ahead in chunks of five years. The planned economy of the Soviet Block (which derived from the electrifying plan of Lenin's) proved criminal and inefficient. As an insider, Putin knew that, and this explains the red capitalism of the modern crude oil exporter Russia. They don't give a dime about climate change and carbon caps. Thus they are strengthening their economy, to the detriment of Europe...
Natural resources-starved Europe must import crude from the North Sea or Libya, and natural gas from Russia. Energy is pricey in Europe as the bureaucrats transfer the cost down the food chain, to the taxpayer and individual consumer. Blue socialist measures, though milder than those of the Soviet-era, enslave free market into some sort of state-controlled economy (another historical name coming to mind is fascism). Small businesses and the middle class are the first victims while grand corporations team with the state, or the Brussels Kommissars. Within a volatile Euro-zone and an economy running 9/1 on debt, the lines between private and public property are blurred.
Interesting and exciting news for shareholders:
ConocoPhillips plans to split the exploration and production (E&P) and refining and marketing segments into two standalone public companies. (Every two shares of COP will get you one share in the new Phillips 66.)
Can America become a crude oil exporter on the global market?
Across the United States are discovered enormous reserves of natural gas and crude oil. Novel exploration and exploitation technologies, such as fracking and horizontal drilling, are not cheap. However the high price of oil, around $100 per barrel, makes the new expensive techniques very profitable. Which means that oil deposits scarcity is not a factor in the US.
When you watch ads you are aware that the promo hype is missing to tell you something. Hey, it wouldn't be a "hype" if telling all the blunt reality, mundane spots included. Did you know that the Chevy Volt resembles to an old rancid oiled diesel-electric locomotive? Sure, not at the hype and shiny hood, just down to the innards where energy is converted from a crude oil derivative, take gasoline, into electricity. The CO2 emitting burning process is less efficient than the one in the conventional Chevy. Without this gas-powered generator, you won't be able to take the Volt out for a long drive!
Putting Pins in Rattlesnakes - Pearl Harbor
I have read the following books, and they present solid evidence that FDR used the Pacific Fleet as bait and purposely refused to inform Admiral Kimmel of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The fact is, not only was FDR a sick bastard, but so were most of his staff-and practically all of his advisers.
Certainly, Japan's leaders were bent on expanding their empire in the 1930s-but they mainly feared Mao's threats of Communist expansionism. While Mao the International Communist was occupied fighting Chiang the Chinese Nationalist, the Japanese took advantage and invaded.
During winter, it's hard to promote global warming as a threatening theory, in order to instill panic in masses and thus make people more willing to pay four times the price of a light bulb. And the light bulb is just the tip of the iceberg in the new climate-change taxes rising upon our future. By the way, did I say iceberg? Yes, right, there's a great chunk of it displaced from Antarctica, they reported on the news. Alarming or not, just remember that winter around the North Pole means summer at the South Pole.
More facts about the global warming, or climate change, scam to leverage even more taxes on us:
Eco activists make an opinionated point about pollution. The mining and drilling industries are usually the preferred targets of environmental agencies. But life runs rather in one or more spirals, not exactly along black and white lines, or according to evil big oil vs. good green non-profits and so on. Bacteria can get even more extreme than the most stubborn radical activist. These life forms are called extremophiles, for a good reason.
Ron Paul's Words of Warning From 1983 to 2008
Check Ron Paul out in this film of him from 1983 through 2008.
Very worth listening to; take the ten minutes and do it. And to think that the media and both Parties have tagged Ron Paul as a nut. That alone shows the state of our sick nation!
Sure, crude oil is smelly, flammable and a pollutant. Now let's think, first, of a society that did not burn oil to heat homes and drive vehicles, that did not refined and processed oil to produce a so familiar artificial environment made of plastics. As you'll see down the lines, we're not praising crude oil in this article. We're gonna blame the past and tell you that this has no effect on the present, yet it may change the future if YOU can think different like -for instance- with your own brain instead of believing and following everything that the tube serves to your eyes and ears.
Ron Paul, Reversing the Power Now Centered in Washington?
Indeed, I have no doubt that Ron Paul is the only person standing who would decentralize the Warring Warthog's power. More than that; he would slash it, rip it apart, and sling it into the Potomac. That drives fear right up the groins of all statists. One huge strike against Mr. Paul, because our two Parties are made up of statists.
As far as a person, no one is cleaner than Ron Paul. As far as a political candidate, Paul has said nothing untoward, and he has done nothing untoward. He certainly has the fortitude to carry out everything he has laid out.
One of his obvious faults is that he does not tittup to and fro across the stage, in the way let’s say, that Rick Perry or Mitt Romney do. Another fault is that he does not use phatic language, in the way let's say, that Newt or the Creature do. We do, after all, live in a giddy world where people suck down gleam and glitter as if they were bottles of sugar—gleam and glitter percolate their innards.
President Obama’s key contingents like the Sierra Club, the Friends of the Earth, the EPA and Occupy Wall Street protesters believe that humans should irrationally worship the earth rather than responsibly exploit it for their benefit and survival.

Remember The Simpsons Movie (2007) when Abe "Grampa" Simpson had a prophetic vision about pollution and the apocalyptic scenario enforced by EPA on Springfield? Well, with less fun and more vibrant reality, the true EPA under Obama's unconstitutional extended prerogatives is indeed killing the American oil industry. This renders the US at the mercy of volatile international energy markets, while crude oil and natural gas resources abound under American soil.
Please read this intriguing quote:
When the moment will come for the Washington Warthog (read the federal government) to revert to proper rules and regulations, then the shale oil industry in the US Midwest will start producing "enormous and environmentally responsible growth" between the years 2016 and 2020, with the capability of generating billions of barrels of "very premium, high-quality" crude oil, stated Todd Dana, Utah oil shale executive.
Have you ever got the feeling that you're overpaying for the energy you consume? The fuel you pump in your car, the power bill, heating and other energy-related hidden costs, are all of these overpriced?
You can understand that energy prices are too high, however you have little space to move for cheaper alternatives. This sad situation is caused mainly by government intervention, by over-regulating the market, up to the point when one may compare it with the defunct Soviet-style planned economy. But a secondary factor is the well known "corporate greed" -- guess you've heard this phrase more than "government intervention and regulation." Yes, mainstream media is the long finger of the left. Pointing at you, fooling you with fantasies and utopias that can, and did so far, make things only worse.
The Financial Times warns about the gloomy perspective of pricing the barrel of crude at $200. The prognosis indicates that potential escalation between Iran and Israel may stampede the markets and the oil industry into chaos. "After all, Iran is the world's third-largest exporter of oil (after Saudi Arabia and Russia), so any shutdown of oil production in that country would create a sharp shock in the tenuous balance between supply and demand."
However, the $200 per barrel remains a myth. Not likely to happen any time soon, if at all.
Coal and oil were not formed by fossils; they are not "fossil fuels."
This was a theory that began one-hundred-years ago when plant leaves and a few bird feathers were found implanted in coal only a few feet below the surface of the ground. Today, the media have made that theory into a myth-fact.
1. $7 billion investment in the Keystone Pipeline and the Keystone XL extension pipeline.
"The Keystone Pipeline System is a pipeline system to transport synthetic crude oil and diluted bitumen from the Athabasca Oil Sands in northeastern Alberta, Canada, to refineries in Illinois and Oklahoma, and further to the U.S. Gulf Coast. It consists of the operational "Keystone Pipeline" and proposed Keystone XL (Keystone Expansion) pipeline."
12 of the 21 best-performing income stocks in the US over the past ten years are in the energy investment sector. The crude oil and natural gas business accounts for about 15% of all domestic stocks yielding 6% or more. and it takes more than half of the biggest winners. This raises the question... why have dividend-paying energy stocks done so well?
There was a time, before 1996, when some intelligent drivers collected fried oil from restaurants. It was a win-win situation: restaurant people were happy to have their garbage disposed for free and the smart motorists were happy for replacing the expensive diesel fuel with filtered fried uneatable oil that restaurants had to dump anyway. MacGyver types marvelled their neighbors and acquaintances for driving expensive Diesel powered Mercedeces on vegetable oil. These cars were traceable by the unmistakable smell of french fries they left behind.
But in 1996, a too smart guy, on his name Josh Tickell, started to drive his Veggie Van across the country. He made big news! And big news are not always good news, especially when talking about FREE collected garbage (fried vegetable oil from restaurants) turned into diesel engine fuel. Individuals preparing their own biodiesel were no more under the radar of the Washington Warthog, and some adjacent corporations. The biodiesel idea turned from a DIY oddity into corporate business, and into a tax and regulation nonsense.
Crude oil and natural gas producers in the USA employ nine million people. Additional millions of shareholders are part of what is called "big oil," part of its profits for sure. Close to half the US population holds stock in oil and natural gas companies. This happens because of the 145 million retirement accounts that are invested in crude oil and gas corporations. Through your pension funds, you're most likely a part of big oil!
"The average value of these pension accounts is less than $55,000. 48.6 million American families hold IRAs that are invested in oil and natural gas companies—80 percent of these IRA holders earn $70,000 or less. All in all, corporate management owns 2.8 percent of oil companies; middle class Americans largely own the rest."
Oil prices point north in the short time perspective of yet another recession averted in Europe and the US. Crude oil, of the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) type, went upwards from $77 a barrel to $93 during October and one may already see gasoline and Diesel prices hurrying to move back to the $4 mark.
"Meanwhile, even as crude oil surges, natural-gas prices remain in a funk as U.S. output surges ever higher. The broadening price differential between crude oil and natural gas could be a boon for several companies, and as I mentioned a couple weeks ago, is bringing real attention to the exploration side of the business. But another group of companies is positioned to benefit if natural gas takes off as an energy source in the transportation sector."
If you were to print money, they'll put you in jail. But banks are allowed to create money with every new signed loan. Banks can loan out nine times more money than they receive in deposits. And not just citizens borrow money from banks, but most importantly governments. In this apparently complex cycle, banks create and develop debt, personal and national. It turns out that more than three fourths of circulating money is in fact debt not monetary mass.
One may rightfully point fingers and one could justify a way or another. But that's mostly bad blood because nothing short of a major disruptive event would make things right in a world of wrongs.
