In a striking blow for the environmental left, the International Energy Agency has released a report detailing how the United States is on track to outpace Saudi Arabia in oil production. This surely puts the Obama administration in a bind concerning its green energy monomania that has dominated their energy policy for the past four years. This finding shows that the United States can be energy independent, and we have the resources to do so. However, the boot of government is trying to centralize and

Comments:
Yes very key words. "If we let it." It is so depressing to see what is available in this country and the vile, corrupt Marxists continue to do everything they can to block and limit access to these resources. It is national suicide.

If Iran and Israel get into a nuclear exchange - this would mean the USA would survive.

Otherwise - the country would fragment into smaller nations.

This "prediction" may be based on Saudi Arabia oil production dropping to zero. Everyone knows they´ve been lying like crazy about their reserves.

I find myself wanting to make an exception to free market orientation on oil and would hope we decide not to export any. I´d rather have cheap and abundant supplies here, with the rest of the world having to pay more for less stable sources, in order to maintain a competitive advantage in energy costs that helps to offset lots of our other higher costs. I know that opens up the longer-term possibility of oil exploration being moved to other countries and we´d have to work on that, but cheap energy is an advantage that´s hard for other countries to take from us the way that cheap labor can.

This may not be a good thing...

If the Saudis, who have been THE major funder of Islamic fanatism in the world, see a future of diminishing returns from oil, they might want to accelerate the pace of global conquest to head off the coming social crisis in Arabia when the money spigot is turned off and a large percentage of their poorly skilled population suddenly find themselves bereft of their Saud Family charity allowance.

Some years ago I was visited by a distant cousin from Germany. I took him to see the historical marker at the spot where the first big inch pipeline began. It ultimately delivered enough crude oil to the eastern refineries to help us win WWII. He looked at it, read the marker and said," This is how you beat us and won the war."
Something we all need to remember when we speak of our oil reserves and their potential.

I just heard another take on this. The reserves available could produce an economic boom in this country that´s unprecedented - and Obama would help it along. Why? Because the money he would collect from fees/taxes/etc. would allow him to fund a true socialist transformation, with people begging him to stay in office for a third term. Think FDR. According to most of America, FDR turned around the depression, remember.

It would take a long essay or a short book to lay out the basics, but if people matter more than some pseudo-superior devotion to "Gaia," then economical, ample, reliable energy matters, and it matters more than most think.

Take a look at the NASA night-mosaic of the earth. It is superlatively instructive. The correlation between energy-appliers [a better term than the manipulable "energy-users"] and human well-being in every category is absolute. The US, Western Europe, and Japan glow like Broadway. Cuba and North Korea? Each is a literal and figurative black hole, with two spots of light. Guess who, in those countries, lives in those spots of light? Most of Africa is the same, despite its resource riches.

The only real differences are: a. human capital; b. the liberty enjoyed by the populations; and c. right choices trumping power and ideology.

That last is the bugaboo for us. Frankly, we must be far more sensitized to these threats [like the IEA and the UN and the enviro-Luddites], and stop them dead as soon as they are identified.

This would hit Russia in the pocketbook, just as they are trying to leverage their oil into international respectability.
Look for Russia to foment war in the Middle East, to reduce the supply of oil, thereby driving up the value of theirs.

Report: Wendy Davis caught
up in FBI investigation
Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas    Original Article

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Documents: Biden and Kerry both

they supported Obamacare
Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/18/2014 10:01:25 PM     Post Reply
Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The ´soft despotism´ of regulation

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
