A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Just a few days ago we wrote an article in which we proclaimed that America does not need oil from sources found anywhere but here on our own property. The article was dismissed by most, but those who seriously consider the possibility that our very own government, under the direction of our current president, Barry Soetoro – aka -- Barack Obama, is intentionally forcing American citizens, against our will, to “make do with less,” in order to pre-condition Americans for the socialist government to come, DID take it seriously and some have spoken out – and -- in so doing have given even more credence to our suggestion that we DO have all the oil we need right here on our own shores or beneath that portion of the oceans owned by the citizens of the US under international law.
Those writers, too, have drawn even more attention to the machinations of the Obama Regime’s intensive planning for a socialist take over of the US government.
I know it sounds like a screenplay for a fictional dramatic motion picture. Problem is … it is true!
The article I wrote, “Another Recession Keyed By High Oil Prices?” can be found HERE.
Here is a quote from the article: “Look. America is awash in oil. We’ve got more oil than the Arabs! But – our government won’t let us get to it -- and use it -- and flip the bird to the Middle Eastern Oil Princes.” We continue: “So what the deuce is going on? I mean, why the heck are we Americans sitting on our hands and not DEMANDING that our government “cut the cr*p” and allow the oil companies to dig, and drill, for all this oil? WHY is the US continuing to ship our treasure and our blood to the Middle East -- and to our unfriendly southern neighbors -- for oil?
We are on the cusp of back-to-back recessions with the second dip looming today. The cost to Americans for oil is threatening to push us over that brink and into a recession that will, most likely, become a depression even worse than the one our parents and grandparents experienced in the 1930’s."
I ask the same question today that I did then: “Why are we allowing a small group of people to dictate our lives and our economy, indeed, our future as a viable nation? It is past time to fight back, America. Demand that the US Congress defund the Environmental Protection Agency right off the bat. Get rid of it.” (I would add the Department of Energy to “get rid of” list.)
In the previous article we pointed out the following: “Just as important is the necessity to elect a President with the cajones to override the environmentalist and open up America to drilling and digging for our own vast reserves of oil sloshing beneath our feet and just offshore and under the tundra.” You can find the entire article HERE.
Now comes Ron Arnold with an article entitled: “Obama's 'starve America first' energy policy creates a backlash”
Mr. Arnold says: “With shaky foreign energy supplies threatening to deepen the worst recession since World War II, why doesn't America protect its capacity to do work by drilling for more oil and gas here at home? Simple truth from Politics 101: Big Green's extreme anti-energy ideology permeates the Obama administration.” He goes on to say: “Dan Kish, senior vice president for policy at the D.C.-based Institute for Energy Research, told me, 'The Obama administration is deliberately embargoing our own domestic energy from us, from Americans. He and his agency heads all believe in the politics of scarcity -- force society to live with less. The most anti-energy interior secretary in history is Obama's Ken Salazar -- who is also presently in contempt of court for withholding deepwater Gulf of Mexico oil drilling permits."
So what about our claim that America has more domestic oil than Saudi Arabia? In his article Mr. Arnold says: “Never mind that the Congressional Research Service has released a study, U.S. Fossil Fuel Resources, that shows America's combined recoverable natural gas, oil, and coal endowment is the largest on Earth, far larger than that of Saudi Arabia (3rd), China (4th), and Canada (6th) combined.
None of that matters to the Obama administration, which has blocked dozens of energy developments on federal lands and now forbids recovery of 83 percent of our oil resources.”
We recommend that you read Mr. Arnold’s article in its entirety. You will find it HERE.
You DO see the pattern here – don’t you? As wild and outrageous as it sounds, we have to believe the Obama Regime is deliberately forcing the price of oil products, including the price of gasoline, up to realize his socialist dream of having all Americans learn to live with less and precondition the entire country to accept socialism with open arms.
America – there is no reason we have to import a single drop of oil. There is no reason we have to pay $4.00 a gallon for gasoline. We are floating on a sea of oil – far more oil than those who are gouging the living daylights out of us now.
We must show Mr. Obama the door in November of 2012 and we need, immediately, to beginning sinking wells and sucking that energy from the ground, the sea, and the rocks. The “Big Green cultists” can go off somewhere and sulk in their SUV’s and McMansions. Most sentient human beings have learned that THEIR environmentalist religion is based on a lie and we want no more of it.
America needs energy. And that energy comes from oil. Now we know we have enough oil for a couple of thousand years right here, on our own shores! We have to vote Obama out if we want to get a single drop of that oil. Hey, that’s an easy choice.
